Speech play : research and resources for studying linguistic creativity by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett( Book )

15 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speech play reflects a degree of selectivity and creativity beyond ordinary language use. Consistent with the approach of ethnography, each culture may have its own definition of speech play. Articles collected in this volume investigate speech play as language structure--"Play Languages: Implications for (Socio) Linguistics, ""Secret Play Languages in Saramaka: Linguistic Disguise in a Caribbean Creole," and "Some Zinacanteco Joking Strategies"; initial and continuing acquisition--"Children's Traditional Speech Play and Child Language, ""A Developmental Structural Account of Riddles," and "Verbal Dueling in Chamula"; and institutional and individual creativity--"How to Remember Numbers in Japanese" and "Saying Is Inventing: Gnomic Expressions in 'Molloy.'" Directions for further research are suggested, and a bibliographic survey of the literature on speech play is presented. (Ks)
They called me Mayer July : painted memories of a Jewish childhood in Poland before the Holocaust by Mayer Kirshenblatt( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mayer Kirshenblatt, who was born in 1916 and left Poland for Canada in 1934, taught himself to paint at age 73. Since then, he has made it his mission to remember the world of his childhood in living color, "lest future generations know more about how Jews died than how they lived." This volume presents his paintings woven together with a narrative created from interviews that took place over forty years between Mayer and his daughter, Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett. This collaboration - a unique blend of memoir, oral history, and artistic interpretation - is simultaneously a labor of love, a tribute to an imagination, and a portrait of life in one Jewish hometown."--Jacket

"This documentary, first released in 1980, offers a window into the vitality of Polish Jewry before the Holocaust. The film directs its lens at all aspects of that now-vanished world, showing us a diverse community and culture. It encompasses city and shtetl, rich and poor, secular and spiritual, politics and society, all permeated by the distinctive character and values that developed in the Polish-Jewish community over nearly a millennium"--Study guide, p. 1
Anne Frank unbound : media, imagination, memory( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As millions of people around the world who have read her diary attest, Anne Frank, the most familiar victim of the Holocaust, has a remarkable place in contemporary memory. This volume of essays looks beyond this young girl's words at the numerous ways people have engaged her life and writing. Apart from officially sanctioned works and organizations, there exists a prodigious amount of cultural production, which encompasses literature, art, music, film, television, blogs, pedagogy, scholarship, religious ritual, and comedy. Created by both artists and amateurs, these responses to Anne Frank range from veneration to irreverence. Although at times they challenge conventional perceptions of her significance, these works testify to the power of Anne Frank, the writer, and Anne Frank, the cultural phenomenon, as people worldwide forge their own connections with the diary and its author

Recipe for a nation: Cuisine, Jewish nationalism, and the Israeli state by Yael Raviv( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines food practices as a cultural manifestation of Jewish nationalism within the Zionist movement and in the state of Israel from the First Aliya (immigration) in 1905 to the Six Day War in 1967. The Zionist movement and later the Israeli state tried to integrate immigrants from numerous countries of origin into a unified nation by using food, among other cultural practices, as an instrument of acculturation and propaganda. Through an analysis of institutional, domestic, and professional kitchens, cookbooks, advertisements, and media, I show the role of food in creating a coherent national culture in a very short period of time. I argue that food, despite its apparent marginal place, was instrumental in Jewish nation-making and that as such it reflects the dynamic relationship between the national movement and the state and the multitude of ethnic, ideological, and political factions that constitutes it
