The Wish Tree: Collaborative Stories by International Women

cover_front

“[I]n diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” ~Maya Angelou This book is a product of the collaborative effort of 25 women from 15 different countries. These original illustrated stories seek to entertain readers of all ages with their unique perspectives, rooted in very different yet shared experiences of intercultural exchange. This creative art project includes storytelling, writing, reading, drawing, painting, editing, and layout work—all conducted in English as a second language of (almost) all of the project’s participants. Beyond that, moreover, “The Wish Tree” grew in the process of its making into an illustrated expression of friendship, comprehension, and appreciation for our diversities and multicultural understandings—as well as a medium of enthusiasm, optimism, and courage.

Now available on amazon

I am happy to announce, at long last, the publication of Post-Cinema: Theorizing 21st-Century Film, edited by Shane Denson and Julia Leyda, which is out today as a completely free and open-access volume with REFRAME Books.

If cinema and television, as the dominant media of the 20th century, shaped and reflected our cultural sensibilities, how do new digital media in the 21st century help to shape and reflect new forms of sensibility? In this collection, editors Shane Denson and Julia Leyda have gathered a range of essays that approach this question by way of a critical engagement with the notion of “post-cinema.” Contributors explore key experiential, technological, political, historical, and ecological aspects of the transition from a cinematic to a post-cinematic media regime and articulate both continuities and disjunctures between film’s first and second centuries.

The book will appear in several digital formats: the web-based version is online today…
