EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Data is powerful. It separates leaders from laggards and it drives business disruption, transformation, and reinvention. Today’s most progressive companies are using the power of data to propel their industries into new areas of innovation, specialization, and optimization. The horsepower of new tools and technologies have provided more opportunities than ever to harness, integrate, and interact with massive amounts of disparate data for business insights and value – something that will only continue in the era of the Internet of Things. And, as a new breed of tech-savvy and digitally native knowledge workers rise to the ranks of data scientist and visual analyst, the needs and demands of the people working with data are changing, too. The world of data is changing fast. And, it’s becoming more visual. Visual insights are becoming increasingly dominant in information management, and with the reinvigorated role of data visualization, this imperative is a driving force to creating a visual culture of data discovery. The traditional standards of data visualizations are making way for richer, more robust and more advanced visualizations and new ways of seeing and interacting with data. However, while data visualization is a critical tool to exploring and understanding bigger and more diverse and dynamic data, by understanding and embracing our human hardwiring for visual communication and storytelling and properly incorporating key design principles and evolving best practices, we take the next step forward to transform data visualizations from tools into unique visual information assets. Discusses several years of in-depth industry research and presents vendor tools, approaches, and methodologies in discovery, visualization, and visual analytics Provides practicable and use case-based experience from advisory work with Fortune 100 and 500 companies across multiple verticals Presents the next-generation of visual discovery, data storytelling, and the Five Steps to Data Storytelling with Visualization Explains the Convergence of Visual Analytics and Visual discovery, including how to use tools such as R in statistical and analytic modeling Covers emerging technologies such as streaming visualization in the IOT (Internet of Things) and streaming animation

Laurence Sterne And The Visual Imagination
Author: W.B. Gerard
Publisher: Routledge
Release Date: 2016-12-05
Pages: 268
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The first full-length and comprehensive study of the illustrations of Sterne's work, this book explores the ability of Sterne's texts to inspire the visual imagination. It helps to explain why scores of editions of his fiction have been illustrated, some profusely: to fulfill the reader's desire, as well as the artist's compulsion, to visualize Sterne's words. Gerard places his subject in a clear and innovative theoretical framework which opens the field to general word and image studies. The author begins by examining the distinct varieties of pictorialism in Sterne's texts. The remainder of the study takes into account three remarkable series of illustrations-representing Trim reading the sermon, didactic sentimentalism in A Sentimental Journey and Henry Mackenzie's Man of Feeling, and the many and diverse portrayals of 'poor Maria' - to demonstrate the ways in which culture projects these texts differently through the various artists.

Apollinaire  Visual Poetry  And Art Criticism
Author: Willard Bohn
Publisher: Bucknell University Press
Release Date: 1993
Pages: 269
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"This study examines a series of visual poems that Guillaume Apollinaire composed in 1917 for an exhibition of paintings by Leopold Survage and Irene Lagut. By this date Apollinaire had become an accomplished practitioner of visual poetry and was thoroughly at ease with the genre. Depicting horses, flowers, landscapes, clocks, the Survage/Lagut series represents the culmination of his visual experiments and contains some of his most pleasing forms. Conceived as examples of poesie critique ("critical poetry"), the poems in the series comment in diverse ways on the paintings and combine critical perspectives with techniques associated with the prose poem. Utilizing insights developed in The Aesthetics of Visual Poetry, 1914-1928, the author seeks to shed new light on Apollinaire's visual poetry through an in-depth analysis of this compact group of works. The analysis itself concentrates on three distinct areas: the poem as poem, the poem as visual poem, and the poem as criticism. The first focuses on the verbal elements of the poetry, the second on the relationship between these and the visual elements, and the third on the relationship of the total poem to paintings by Lagut and Survage." "As one would expect, part of the book is directed toward readers who are familiar with Apollinaire or who would like to know more about him. Since Apollinaire is a major poet, any project connected with his work will also interest readers who are concerned with modern French poetry in general. While at first glance the texts themselves may appear to be peripheral, the principles they embody are central not only to Apollinaire's poetry but to modern aesthetics as well. The more we learn about the calligrams, the better equipped we will be to appreciate his efforts and the closer we will come to understanding his concept of visual poetry. Similar remarks apply to Apollinaire's experiments with cubist poetry and with the poem in prose - both examined in the present volume. More than anything, perhaps, this volume strives to elucidate the concept of poesie critique, which has received very little attention. This omission is surprising since the genre influenced the Surrealist invention of poesie synthetique as well as many writers who followed Apollinaire, trying to reconcile poetry and criticism." "In addition to clarifying issues related to the poems themselves, the study attempts to accomplish two objectives that are more ambitious. First, it seeks to increase our theoretical knowledge regarding visual poetry in general. Since this genre has enjoyed widespread popularity in the twentieth century, it is closely linked to modern existence itself. Second, the study seeks to expand our knowledge of the relations between poetry and painting. Since there has been extensive cross-fertilization between them for the better part of a century, this subject provides an additional link to the modern experience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Feminist Auteurs

Publisher: Wallflower Press
Release Date: 2006
Pages: 239
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Feminist Auteurs examines a rich and diverse body of work that has received insufficient attention both in film studies and in feminist theory on film. Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film.

Poetry As Re Reading

Pages: 301
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Grounded in a detailed and compelling account of the philosophy guiding such a project, Ma's book traces a continuity of thought and practice through the very different poetic work of objectivists Louis Zukofsky, George Oppen, Carl Rakosi, and John Cage and language poets Susan Howe, Lyn Hejinian, Bruce Andrews, and Charles Bernstein. His deft individual readings provide an opening into this notoriously difficult work, even as his larger critique reveals a new and clarifying perspective on American modernist and post-modernist avant-garde poetics. Ma shows how we cannot understand these poets according to the usual way of reading but must see how they deliberately use redundancy, unpredictability, and irrationality to undermine the meaning-oriented foundations of American modernism--and to force a new and different kind of reading."--Pub. desc.

The Rhetoric Of The Page
Author: Laurie Maguire
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Release Date: 2020-11-03
Pages: 243
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This wide-ranging and entertaining book explores blank space from incunabula to Google books. Blanks are a paradox—simultaneously nothing and something, gesturing to what was once there or might be there. They are also a creative opportunity for readers as well as writers: readers respond to what is not there and writers come to anticipate that response. Thus, blank space develops literary and ludic applications. Each chapter focuses on one typographical form of what is not there on the page: physical gaps (Chapter One), marks of incompletion such as &c (Chapter Two), and the asterisk as a stand-in for things that cannot be said (Chapter Three). By looking at the early-modern page as a visual unit as well as a verbal unit, this volume shows how the relationship between textual layout and textual content is as productive for writers as it is for readers. Mise-en-page influences readers in the same way that rhetoric influences readers. It is thus possible to speak of 'the rhetoric of the page'.

Operational Research And The Social Sciences
Author: S.A. Cropper
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 723
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Twenty five years ago, in 1964, The Operational Research Society's first International Conference (held at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge) took as its theme "Operational Research and the Social Sciences". The Conference sessions were organised around topics such as: Organisations and Control; Social Effects of Policies; Conflict Resolution; The Systems Concept; Models, Decisions and Operational Research. An examination of the published proceedings (J.R.Lawrence ed., 1966, Operational Research and the Social Sciences, Tavistock, London) reveals a distinct contrast between the types of contribution made by the representatives of the two academic communities involved. Nevertheless, the Conference served to break down some barriers, largely of ignorance about the objects, methods and findings of each concern. In the ensuing twenty five years, although debate has continued about the relationship between OR and the social sciences, mutual understanding has proved more difficult to achieve than many must have hoped for in 1964.

International Politics And Film
Author: Klaus Dodds
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Release Date: 2014-05-14
Pages: 144
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

International Politics and Film introduces readers to the representational qualities of film but also draws attention to how the relationship between the visual and the spatial is constitutive of international politics. Using four themes—borders, the state of exception, homeland and distant others—the territorial and imaginative dimensions of international affairs in particular are highlighted. But this volume also makes clear that international politics is not just something "out there"; film helps us better understand how it is also part of everyday life within the state—affecting individuals and communities in different ways depending on axes of difference such as gender, race, class, age, and ethnicity.

Ancestors And Relatives

Pages: 240
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Genealogy has long been one of humanity's greatest obsessions. But with the rise of genetics, and increasing media attention to it through programs like Who Do You Think You Are? and Faces of America, we are now told that genetic markers can definitively tell us who we are and where we came from. The problem, writes Eviatar Zerubavel, is that biology does not provide us with the full picture. After all, he asks, why do we consider Barack Obama black even though his mother was white? Why did the Nazis believe that unions of Germans and Jews would produce Jews rather than Germans? In this provocative book, he offers a fresh understanding of relatedness, showing that its social logic sometimes overrides the biological reality it supposedly reflects. In fact, rather than just biological facts, social traditions of remembering and classifying shape the way we trace our ancestors, identify our relatives, and delineate families, ethnic groups, nations, and species. Furthermore, genealogies are more than mere records of history. Drawing on a wide range of evidence, Zerubavel introduces such concepts as braiding, clipping, pasting, lumping, splitting, stretching, and pruning to shed light on how we manipulate genealogies to accommodate personal and collective agendas of inclusion and exclusion. Rather than simply find out who our ancestors were and identify our relatives, we actually construct the genealogical narratives that make them our ancestors and relatives. An eye-opening re-examination of our very notion of relatedness, Ancestors and Relatives offers a new way of understanding family, ethnicity, nationhood, race, and humanity.

A Comparative Study Of Chinese And Western Cyclic Myths
Author: Robert Shanmu Chen
Publisher: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated
Release Date: 1992
Pages: 216
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The cyclic myth is a temporal schema of the unity of man and the cosmos. It identifies man with the periodic becoming and perpetual regeneration in nature, and guarantees personal duration against the flux of time. It has imprints on every sphere of human experience in Chinese and Western cultures. The author first traces the origin, formation, abstraction and presentation of the cyclic myth in Chinese mythology, ritual, philosophy and literature, and confirms that the cyclic ontology is the core of Chinese culture. He then adumbrates the transmutation of the cyclic mentality in the linear eschatology of the Western culture and its impact in literature from Dante, Milton, Defoe, Sterne, Goethe, Shelley and Yeats to Joyce and Beckett. The author concludes with the assertion that the cyclic myth is an informing structure of literary works and an index of cultures.
