« Le premier livre de Rupi Kaur, lait et miel, est un recueil poétique que toutes les femmes devraient avoir sur leur table de nuit ou la table basse de leur salon. Accompagnés de ses propres dessins, ses poèmes, d'une honnêteté et d'une authenticité rares, se lisent comme les expériences collectives et quotidiennes d'une femme du XXIe siècle. » - Erin Spencer, Huffington Post US « L'écriture de Rupi Kaur dénote un talent artistique et une sagesse qu'on trouve chez les auteurs confirmés. » - Samira Sawlani, Media Diversified Auteure et artiste, Rupi Kaur vit à Toronto, au Canada. Elle a commencé à dessiner et à peindre à l'âge de 5 ans – un passe-temps hérité de sa mère. Immigrée indienne originaire du Pakistan, Rupi ne pouvait pas parler anglais avec les autres enfants à l’école. D'où son sentiment de solitude. Mais dès qu'elle a appris la langue, les livres sont devenus ses meilleurs amis. Elle a dessiné jusqu’à l'âge de 17 ans, puis s'est tournée davantage vers sa passion pour l'écriture et la mise en scène de son écriture, notamment à travers des lectures aux quatre coins du Canada. En novembre 2014, elle publiait à compte d'auteur son premier recueil de poésie, Milk and Honey. Rupi cherche avant tout à s'exprimer, que ce soit par la poésie ou d'autres moyens d’expression comme l'illustration, le design, la photographie, la vidéographie et la réalisation. Mais quoi qu'elle fasse, ses sujets de prédilection sont la féminité, l'amour, la perte, le traumatisme et la guérison.

The world is witnessing a media revolution similar to the birth of the film industry from the early 20th Century. New forms of media are expanding the human experience from passive viewership to active participants, surrounding and enveloping us in ways film or television never could. New immersive media forms include virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (XR), fulldome, CAVEs, holographic characters, projection mapping, and mixed experimental combinations of old and new, live, and generated media. With the continued expansion beyond the traditional frame, practitioners are crafting these new media to see how they can influence and shape the world. The Handbook of Research on the Global Impacts and Roles of Immersive Media is a collection of innovative research that provides insights on the latest in existing and emerging immersive technologies through descriptions of case studies, new business models, philosophical viewpoints, and scientific findings. While highlighting topics including augmented reality, interactive media, and spatial computing, this book is ideally designed for media technologists, storytellers, artists, journalists, designers, programmers, developers, manufacturers, entertainment executives, content creators, industry professionals, academicians, researchers, and media students.

Many practical books for music educators who work with special needs students focus on students' disabilities, rather than on the inclusive classroom more generally. In Including Everyone: Creating Music Classrooms Where All Children Learn, veteran teacher and pedagogue Judith Jellison offers a new approach that identifies broader principles of inclusive music instruction writ large. As she demonstrates in this aptly-titled book, the perceived impediments to successfully including the wide diversity of children in schools in meaningful music instruction often stem not from insurmountable obstacles but from a lack of imagination. How do teachers and parents create diverse musical communities in which all children develop skills, deepen understanding, and cultivate independence in a culture of accomplishment and joy? Including Everyone equips music teachers with five principles of effective instruction for mixed special needs / traditional settings that are applicable in both classroom and rehearsal rooms alike. These five guidelines lay out Jellison's argument for a new way to teach music that shifts attention away from thinking of children in terms of symptoms. The effective teacher, argues Jellison, will strive to offer a curriculum that will not only allow the child with a disability to be more successful, but will also apply to and improve instruction for typically developing students. In this compelling new book, Judith Jellison illustrates what it takes to imagine, create, and realize possibilities for all children in ways that inspire parents, teachers, and the children themselves to take part in collaborative music making. Her book helps readers recognize how this most central component of human culture is one that allows everyone to participate, learn, and grow. Jellison is a leader in her field, and the wealth of knowledge she makes available in this book is extensive and valuable. It should aid her peers and inspire a new generation of student teachers.

Dans ce court texte paru en 1848, Edgar Poe entreprend d’expliquer 'l’univers physique, métaphysique et mathématique, matériel et spirituel'. À la fois poème en prose et essai, Eureka est une véritable cosmogonie poétique, un récit qui a pour intrigue l’origine, la destinée et la fin de l’univers et pour personnages Dieu, l’Homme et la Matière. Il fusionne tous les savoirs et les discours de son temps, autant philosophiques qu’astronomiques. Dernière œuvre de Poe, ce texte-limite se présente comme un aboutissement absolu, une fascinante synthèse où se croisent et se subliment toute sa pensée et sa pratique de l’œuvre d’art.

Un homme construit le paradis sur Terre, l'autre y fait régner l'enfer. 1893 : l'Exposition universelle de Chicago est l'occasion pour les États-Unis de montrer leur puissance au reste du monde. Au cœur de cet événement sans précédent, le célèbre architecte Daniel H. Burnham, créateur du premier gratte-ciel, à qui revient la tâche de créer une cité de rêve, la Ville blanche. On attend près de 30 millions de visiteurs, de nombreuses personnalités, parmi lesquelles Houdini, Frank Lloyd Wright ou Thomas Edison. Mais, dans l'ombre de l'Exposition, une autre figure accomplit de bien plus noirs desseins : H. H. Holmes, un jeune médecin apparemment bien sous tous rapports, en réalité l'un des tueurs en série les plus terrifiants de l'histoire du crime, sur la piste duquel se pressent un inspecteur d'une incroyable tenacité et une étrange association, le Whitechapel Club. Vendu à plus d'un million d'exemplaires outre-Atlantique, bientôt porté à l'écran avec Leonardo DiCaprio, ce document bénéficie d'une construction et d'un sens de l'intrigue dignes des plus grands auteurs de thrillers. Une formidable histoire où l'on constatera, une fois de plus, que la réalité dépasse toujours la fiction.
