Text/image Mosaics in French Culture: Emblems And Comic Strips (Studies in European Cultural Transition)

This study compares text/image interaction as manifested in emblem books (and related forms) and the modern bande dessinee, or French-language comic strip. It moves beyond the issue of defining the emblematic genre to examine the ways in which emblems - and their modern counterparts - interact with the surrounding culture, and what they disclose about that culture. Drawing largely on primary material from the "Bibliotheque nationale de France" and from Glasgow University Library's "Stirling Maxwell Collection" of emblem literature, Laurence Grove builds on the ideas of Marshall McLuhan, Elizabeth Eisenstein and, more recently, Neil Rhodes and Jonathan Sawday. Divided into four sections-Theoretics, Production, Thematics and Reception - "Text/Image Mosaics in French Culture" broaches topics such as theoretical approaches (past and present) to text/image forms, the question of narrative within the scope of text/image creations, and the reuse of visual iconography for diametrically opposed political or religious purposes. The author argues that, despite the gap in time between the advent of emblems and that of comic strips, the two forms are analogous, in that both are the products of a 'parallel mentality'. The mindsets of the periods that popularised these forms have certain common features related to repeated social conditions rather than to the pure evolution over time. Grove's analysis and historical contextualisation of that mentality provide insight into our own popular culture forms, not only the comic strip but also other hybrid media such as advertising and the Internet. His juxtaposition of emblems and the bande dessinee increases our understanding of all such combinations of picture and text.

Cartoons for Trainers: Seventy Five Cartoons to Use or Adapt for Transitions, Activities, Discussion Points, Ice Breakers and More with CD-ROM

As most instructors, presenters and trainers have discovered, cartoons are an excellent classroom resource for making key learning points in an enjoyable, engaging manner.

Cartoons function well as metaphors for the subject at hand, help introduce or wrap-up key concepts, and serve to ease transitions between learning segments. However, as most users have also discovered, reproduction fees for cartoons in training can be expensive; permissions hard to obtain; and copyright holders difficult to track down.

This book provides the solution. Cartoons for Trainers presents over 75 original cartoons, conceptualized by trainers for trainers. It includes a license that allows buyers to display these cartoons in the classroom.

The cartoons focus on the transition points in any training program. Subjects include objectives, introductions, activities, case studies, role-plays, experiential learning, breaks, evaluations, and closings. For anyone who wants tips or guidance, the author provides a brief and practical introduction.

In addition, the cartoons are reproduced on the included CD-ROM for use in electronic presentations. Purchase of the book constitutes permission for the buyer to reproduce the cartoons for overheads or place them in electronic presentations.

Written by leading offbeat training expert Lenn Millbower, author of Training With A Beat: The Teaching Power of Music, and the composer of Do You Want to Learn With Music: Game Show Themes for Trainers, and drawn by New York show director Doris Yager, these cartoons exhibit a tongue-in-cheek wit reminiscent of Gary Larson's The Far Side and Scott Adams' Dilbert. All the cartoons make good-natured fun of the everyday foibles trainers experience, while addressing the fears that learners have toward training.

This is an ideal trainer's companion and deserves a place in any trainer's toolbox.
