"La manera en que a lo largo del tiempo ha ido cambiando la visión de los maquis, las fuerzas represoras y la lucha guerrillera, se pone de manifiesto mediante el análisis y la clasificación de cerca de doscientas obras en cinco perŕodos que abarcan desde 1936 hasta 2010. Las representaciones de cada período ilustran las relaciones existentes entre el poder y una producción textual que tiene como objetivo la difusión de un determinado discurso sobre la lucha guerrillera, mostrando así las prioridades y preocupaciones de los diferentes actores en el contexto socio-político de cada etapa. Finalmente, se analiza la memoria colectiva y traumática reflejada en las obras así como el efecto que el tratamiento de la lucha guerrillera tiene sobre la memoria de espectadores y lectores."--Publisher
By Donna Wilkerson-Barker.
"The Space of the Screen in Contemporary French and Francophone Fiction appeals widely to readers interested in the transformations literature has undergone in visual culture. Advancing the compelling argument that literary space functions as a space of critical reflection on and within image culture, Donna Wilkerson-Barker explores the centrality of media spectatorship in the novels of Genet, Guibert, and Bouraoui. The result is a new understanding of the dynamic intersections between bookspace and cyberspace within the developing landscape of postmodern literacy."-Publisher
Louise S. Grinstein, Rose K. Rose, Miriam H. Rafailovich, Patricia Joan Siegel, and K. Thomas Finley
Edited by Louise S. Grinstein, Rose K. Rose, and Miriam H. Rafailovich ; foreword by Lilli S. Hornig.
Includes chapters by former College at Brockport faculty members Patricia Joan Siegel and Kay Thomas Finley: "Ruth Erica Benesch," p. 42-49; "Katherine Burr Blodgett," p. 65-71; "Helen Abbott Michael," p. 405-409.
"This valuable resource recounts the contributions of women to science. Biographies of 75 women whose work spans nearly three centuries reflect their struggle to study in a chosen field, gain admission to professional societies, and the lack of funding support. The subjects represent many nations, ranging from Hypatia (ca. 370-ca. 415), the ancient mathematician and astronomer, to Marie Maynard Daly, African American chemist, and Chien-Shiung Wu, Chinese American physicist.
The selection criteria used were (a) attainment of advanced degrees despite familial and societal pressures; (b) innovative research results in some aspect of chemistry or physics; (c) influence exerted in teaching and guidance of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels; (d) active participation and leadership in professional societies; (e) extensive scholarly publications; and (f) participation on journal editorial boards. The scope was limited to deceased women or those born before 1933.
Each alphabetically arranged entry has three parts--a biography, a review of the subject's research, and an extensive bibliography of works by and about the subject. The subject's background is presented as well as any circumstances or influences that affected her career and her significance to science. Throughout, the relevant chemistry and physics are presented in as nontechnical language as possible. Appendixes include a chronological list by date of birth, a list of places of birth and work and scientific fields for each subject, and listings of abbreviations used in the entries. A detailed index follows. Each entry has a different author."--Booklist
Grace Alvarez-Altman, Frederick M. Burelbach, Luis A. Oyarzun, and Walter P. Bowman
Edited by Grace Alvarez-Altman, Frederick M. Burelbach (both former College at Brockport faculty members).
Includes chapters by them: Grace Alvarez-Altman, A methodology for literary onomastics: an analytical guide for studying names in literature.
Frederick M. Burelbach: Look! Up in the sky! It's What's-His-Name!.

Walter P. Bowman, The titles of dramatic works : problems for translators and researchers.
This volume celebrates the 15th anniversary of the Literary Onomastics Conference. The 21 essays presented here show how the study of names can illuminate works of all ages and genres. The essays range over epics and comic books; embrace Shakespeare, Moliere Kafka, Carl Sandburg, and Toni Morrison, among many others; discuss the histories of names and their sounds; reveal how names identify a moment in time and how they communicate across the ages. Co-published with the American Name Society.
