The Flâneur and Education Research: A Metaphor for Knowing, Being Ethical and New Data Production By Alexandra Lasczik Cutcher
English | PDF | 2018 | 186 Pages | ISBN : 3319728377 | 8.48 MB

This book creatively and critically explores the figure of the flâneur and its place within educational scholarship. The flâneur is used as a generative metaphor and a prompt for engaging the unknown through embodied engagement, the politics of space, mindful walking and ritual. The chapters in this collection explore sensorial qualities of place and place-making, urban spaces and places, walking as relational practice, walking as ritual, thinking photographically, the creative and narrative qualities of flâneurial walking, and issues of power, gender, and class in research practices.

Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors [Audiobook] by Susan Sontag
English | March 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B079P9SLPJ, ISBN: 1538537451 | MP3@64 kbps | 4 hrs 37 mins | 127.33 MB
Narrator: Tavia Gilbert

In 1978 Susan Sontag wrote Illness as Metaphor, a classic work described by Newsweek as “one of the most liberating books of its time”. A cancer patient herself when she was writing the book, Sontag shows how the metaphors and myths surrounding certain illnesses, especially cancer, add greatly to the suffering of patients and often inhibit them from seeking proper treatment. By demystifying the fantasies surrounding cancer, Sontag shows cancer for what it is - just a disease. Cancer, she argues, is not a curse, not a punishment, certainly not an embarrassment, and it is highly curable, if good treatment is followed.
