Only 20 paintings and eight drawings are confidently assigned to Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516) but in their fantastical visions they have secured his place as one of the most cult artists in history. 500 years on from his death, his works continue to inspire scholars, artists, designers, and musicians, death metal band names and designer dresses. This Bibliotheca Universalis edition offers the complete and haunting Bosch world in one compact format. Through full spreads and carefully curated details, we explore the full reach and compelling inventions of the artist’s genius as well as disturbing imagination. We encounter his hybrid creatures, his nightmarish scenarios, his religious and moral framework, and his pictorial versions of contemporary proverbs and idioms. Along the way, art historian and Bosch expert Stefan Fischer reveals the most important themes and influences in these cryptic, mesmerizing masterpieces.

From its earliest days in a cold, rented room in a former Christchurch warehouse, the Canterbury Workers' Educational Association has been a pioneering provider of adult education, enriching, and sometimes even transforming, the lives of thousands of men and women. Through its box and travelling library schemes, inspired by the charismatic James Shelley, it took adult education to nearly every nook and cranny of the Canterbury and Westland provinces from the 1920s, Its wider horizons programme revolutionised adult education for retired people from the 1970s. In The People's University, widely published historian Ian Dougherty tells the fascinating and important story of this resilient association over its first 100 years and of the enthusiastic and committed involvement of students, tutors, volunteers and staff.

‘Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons’ examines sociocultural approaches in the education sector, from early childhood to tertiary. With few publications covering such a range, there is a common struggle to gain a better understanding of the impact of social and cultural discourses on learning and teaching; this book aims to encourage the discussion and application of the theory and practice by researchers, policy-makers and teacher educators in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and elsewhere. The evolution of sociocultural theory is illustrated, and its links to cultural diversity across these three geographically distinct settings are shared. By way of a range of personal experiences, and some innovative research that showcases sociocultural theory in practice, the book offers practical examples for educators to employ in today’s diverse learning contexts. Three key messages recur: the importance of people working in partnership, the worthiness of protecting diversity and uniqueness, and the significance of participation as an enabler of success. ‘Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons’ is a reference for teachers, special education advisors, psychologists, university lecturers and paraprofessionals.

Aotearoa New Zealand was recently rated by the Lonely Planet travel guide as the second most ‘gay friendly’ country in the world, with some of the most advanced human rights legislation. Research suggests, however, that New Zealand’s relatively ‘inclusive’ social climate is not always reflected in our educational settings. This book explores how the assumption that heterosexuality is the norm operates in education, and the discriminatory effects of this for teachers, for students, and for parents, in early childhood education, schools, tertiary and alternative settings. How can education settings become more socially just sites of inclusion for sexual and gender diversity? Contributors from a wide range of sectors discuss their research and invite others to join them in resisting the many injustices perpetuated by the unchecked discriminatory discourses that have shaped New Zealand education historically, and which continue to do so today.

tufff..." is about the friendship which develops between three schoolboys and what they can achieve together through understanding and tolerance.

...is played with much energy, simplicity and sheer delight .

...is about fear, pain and the contagiousness of shared experience — caring should be a key word.

...is about prejudice — how the minds and attitudes of people, especially young people, are crystallised into 'closed shops' filled with sometimes wrong and dangerous preconceptions and lasting misconceptions.

...is also very funny

The plot is simple ...

Emmett Rosebury, a boy who has lost the use of his legs, spends a lot of time at the beach. He finds a shell on the beach which gives him ideas.

His solitude is interrupted by the arrival of Springle and Blackburn.

It is a school day and everyone at the school has to receive the needle but unbeknown to Springle and Blackburn, Rosebury has already had his needle and school has been cancelled for the day. Springle and Blackburn had already decided to skip school, and the needle, and spend the day at the beach.

They meet Rosebury at the beach and from there the relationship between them develops into one where Springle and Blackburn overcome their prejudice and come to accept Rosebury and understand that he is not really that different…

Working Title is the play you have when you don’t have a play.



It is one of only a handful of plays entirely devoid of any recognizable plot. And that’s not easy to do. The characters come and go. They interrupt each other. They behave irrationally. They are funny. They are violent. Occasionally they burst into song.



So what’s going on?



Working Title is an excursion into various types, kinds and fashions of theatre. In itself it is a sort of vaudeville experience. It introduces us to



Ionesco

Brecht

Ibsen.



There are scenes here illustrating



Theatre of the Absurd

Brechtian Theatre

Musical Theatre and the

Theatre of Realism.

And all in the one play! Now there’s value for money!



Furthermore, members of the audience are right royally entertained.



As they should be.
