Face[t]s of First Language Loss

  • Type: Book
  • -
  • Published: 1999-04-01

  • Publisher: Routledge

This book contributes to the understanding of first-language loss in both immigrant and indigenous communities in (at least) three ways. First, it provides insight into the process of language loss and the factors contributing to it. Second, it attempts to define, from an insider perspective, what it means to "lose" a language. Third, it analyzes the perceived consequences of first language loss in terms of social, academic, emotional, and economic factors--an approach previously lacking in research on language loss. Most studies of first language loss are impersonal, even when they tell emotional stories. This polyphonic book about language loss and imperfect learning of heritage languages ...

Why did you write the book?” everyone wanted to know; “Why would you put yourself through that all over again?” I tell them that it was a promise that I had to fulfill; I was driven by that promise to: 1) inform the general public of a serious social problem of epidemic proportion; 2) help the victims of sexual child abuse better cope with their problems through Christian principles and methods, assuring them that they are not alone in their struggles, 3) bring the perpetrators to a realization of what they are doing; why they are doing it; leading them to seek help and forgiveness, and 4) lead the victim through steps to total healing through forgiveness. I have just completed the boo...

The Science Question in Feminism

Can science, steeped in Western, masculine, bourgeois endeavors, nevertheless be used for emancipatory ends? In this major contribution to the debate over the role gender plays in the scientific enterprise, Sandra Harding pursues that question, challenging the intellectual and social foundations of scientific thought.Harding provides the first comprehensive and critical survey of the feminist science critiques, and examines inquiries into the androcentricism that has endured since the birth of modern science. Harding critiques three epistemological approaches: feminist empiricism, which identifies only bad science as the problem; the feminist standpoint, which holds that women's social experience provides a unique starting point for discovering masculine bias in science; and feminist postmodernism, which disputes the most basic scientific assumptions. She points out the tensions among these stances and the inadequate concepts that inform their analyses, yet maintains that the critical discourse they foster is vital to the quest for a science informed by emancipatory morals and politics.

Belmar

Belmar, Volume II transports the reader back in time on another delightful journey to this well-known seashore community in Monmouth County. Significant images that have surfaced since the publication of the first volume provide a continuing pictorial saga of the town from its early development--when it was called Ocean Beach in the 1870s--through its growth as Belmar from 1889 to the 1960s. Previously unpublished photographs from the albums of families who visited Belmar provide a fascinating look at their summer homes including both the plush "cottages" of the wealthy and the small bungalows of average families. Pictures of Belmar's famous lifeguards and their revered leader Howard Rowland, will bring back fond memories for those who frequented Belmar's beaches in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Finally, the diverse year-round community of Belmar is not forgotten, as one chapter focuses on the shops and businesses around town, many of which have existed since the nineteenth century and continue today.

Is Science Multicultural?

Is Science Multicultural? explores what the last three decades of European/American, feminist, and postcolonial science and technology studies can learn from each other. Sandra Harding introduces and discusses an array of postcolonial science studies, and their implications for "northern" science. All three science studies strains have developed in the context of post-World War II science and technology projects. They illustrate how technoscientific projects mean different things to different groups. The meaning attached by the culture of the West may not be shared or may be diametrically opposite in the cultures in other parts of the world. All, however, would agree that scientific projects...

The Gift

“The Gift” (Candies from around the World)is a children’s picture book. It is a story of a most unusual gift a girl buys while in a foreign country to give to her friend when she returns. Nothing is strange about the gift until it is opened. It is then the girls get their first taste of the magic inside. The idea for this book comes from my family. My Grandmother used to speak in both English and German. One of my cousins in Australia visited when I was young, and I always remember her beautiful accent. Jennifer is my niece, and I used her name for one of the characters. The names Tony and Chloe came from two people in Nashville, Tennessee. Tony helped me with songs I’d written, and I told him I would use his family name(s) in my next book.
