In 1837, when Nicore Niepce and Louis Jacques 
Mande Daguerre invented a process called 
daguerreotype, they probably had no idea of the 
flood of photographic images that would follow. 
Early photographs were unable to capture 
movement, but they could offer documentary 
evidence of persons or objects, or rival an older 
artistic medium, painting. In recent years, 
photography has stepped up its competition not

Re: Looking for Viagra commercials and advertising

Hi Kate,

You might try http://www.youtube.com.  Use the search function and a 
few things come up, though I'm not sure of how relevant they all are, 
and there are things that look clearly like parodies.  Hours of stuff 
there at the moment, but you can't capture any of it.  Too much fun, 
really.

Best,
Geoff

photography has stepped up its competition not only with the painted image, 
but also with the written word. Novelists like W.G. Sebald and Orhan Pamuk 
include photographs in their work, interspersing their words with images. 
What is the function of these photographs? How do they change the literary 
text? And how do we read them?

CFP: Learning Inquiry - new journal

Apologies for cross-posting, distribute as appropriate.

Call for papers

Learning Inquiry

A new journal from Springer

Editors: Jason Nolan and Jeremy Hunsinger

email: editors <at> learning-inquiry.info

Learning Inquiry is a refereed scholarly journal, devoted to  
establishing the area of "learning" as a focus for transdisciplinary  
study. The journal is a forum centered on learning that remains open  
to varied objects of inquiry, including machine, human, plant and  
animal learning as well as the processes of learning in business,  
government, and the professions, both in formal and informal  
environments. This journal is of importance to those interested in  
learning, understanding its contexts, and anticipating its future.  
The journal will also present special issues that identify the  
central areas of learning inquiry to provide focus for future  
research. Learning Inquiry strikes a balance between presenting  
innovative research and documenting current knowledge to foster a  
scholarly dialogue on learning that is independent of domain and  
methodological restrictions.
