Most widely held works by James H Hughes
Fixed : the science/fiction of human enhancement( Visual )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing buzz around the potential for science and technology to create significant "human enhancement" applications, such as bionic limbs, improved memory or cognition, or the ability to choose specific characteristics for our offspring. The possibilities stir the imagination and excitement of many, while for others the rhetoric and current research into human enhancement signals alarms of a new eugenics. And yet, for most non-scientists, this sounds like the realm of science fiction, a world awash in mystery and misunderstanding. With cameo performances by some of the world's leading integrated dance companies, featuring disabled and non-disabled dancers and artists, including the Anjali Dance Company, Antoine Hunter (of Sins Invalid and Urban Jazz Dance Company), AXIS, Candoco, Dancing Wheels, GIMP, Kounterclockwise, Lisa Bufano, Marc Brew, Remix Dance Company, and Sue Austin/Freewheeling. Through a dynamic mix of verité, dance, archival and interview footage, Fixed challenges notions of normal, the body and what it means fundamentally to be human in the 21st century
Citizen Cyborg : why democratic societies must respond to the redesigned human of the future by James Hughes( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the opposite corner, a loose transhumanist coalition is mobilizing in defense of human enhancement, embracing the ideological diversity of their intellectual forebears in the democratic and humanist movements. Transhumanists argue that human beings should be guaranteed freedom to control their own bodies and brains, and to use technology to transcend human limitations." "Identifying the groups, thinkers, and arguments in each corner of this debate, bioethicist and futurist James Hughes argues for a third way, which he calls democratic transhumanism. This approach argues that we will achieve the best possible posthuman future when we ensure tech nologies are safe, make them available to everyone, and respect the right of individuals to control their own bodies."

Volunteerism in special education through industry-education cooperation : final report by Donald M Clark( Book )

4 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final report describes activities and products of a 3-year project to prepare private sector volunteers to become actively involved in special education through a networking system of industry-education partnerships. Using a trainer of trainers model, the project conducted workshops and produced a training package which includes a program development handbook and an instructor's guide (the latter is included in this document as Appendix a). The handbook, published earlier, describes the principles, advantages, processes, and techniques for involving industry volunteers in special education. The handbook includes seven program planning steps and implementation guidelines for management orientation, community/public relations, recruitment of employee volunteers, applicant screening, referral for placement, performance monitoring, recognition and appreciation, and program evaluation. Use of the materials at 30 training workshops with a total of over 500 participants around the country is reported. Appendix a, "Workshop on Volunteerism in Special Education through Industry-Related Cooperation: An Organizer's and Trainer's Guide," includes information on organizing for the workshop, conducting the workshop, and follow-up. The guide also includes such information as position titles of target workshop participants, draft letters and brochures, a suggested workshop agenda, and evaluation forms. Appendix b is a third party evaluation report which concludes that the program was successful in meeting its objectives as demonstrated by the number of volunteer programs developed following the training sessions.

This book examines the current state of the technologically-caused unemployed, and attempts to answer the question of how to proceed into an era beyond technological unemployment. Beginning with an overview of the most salient issues, the experts collected in this work present their own novel visions of the future and offer suggestions for adapting to a more symbiotic economic relationship with AI. These suggestions include different modes of dealing with education, aging workers, government policies, and the machines themselves. Ultimately, they lay out a whole new approach to economics, one in which we learn to merge with and adapt to our increasingly intelligent creations

Handicapped children and mainstreaming: a mental health perspective - review of model school programs and practices by National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The monograph examines successful factors in preparing parents, teachers, and pupils for mainstreaming handicapped students and describes exemplary practices from a mental health perspective. Model programs were selected on the basis of the following criteria: temporal, instructional, and social integration; teacher and parent support and involvement; and attention to the mental health needs of parents, teachers, and students. Descriptions of the six selected model programs are presented, including those serving handicapped students in rural, suburban, and metropolitan settings. Descriptions touch upon the program's history, unique components, responses to parent and teacher needs, and implications for replication. Analyses and summary material list 12 factors identified in program success: (1) community support, (2) a history of mainstreaming, (3) an overall approach or design for implementation, (4) a full range of special service options, (5) administrative support, (6) emphasis on systematic communication, (7) defined mental health roles, (8) active parental involvement, (9) activities to increase understanding and acceptance, (10) a humanistic approach to providing support services to teachers and students, (11) a favorable financial climate, and (12) coordination with the mental health system. A final chapter suggests specific activities and strategies to improve mainstreaming. Appendixes list additional programs and resource materials
