American photography : a century of images ( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Although photography was invented in the first half of the 19th century, the beginning of the 20th century marked extraordinary changes. The Developing Image travels back to the very first time in history when inexpensive hand-held cameras gave ordinary people the opportunity to create their own visual images. Through archival footage and interviews with historians and notable photographers, the film explores the age when suddenly pictures were a part of our daily lives: on passports, postcards, in the developing picture press, and in science. World War I photographs even convinced many reluctant Americans that they had a stake in this distant war, and advertisers embraced photography because of its ability to create a fantasy that seemed to be a plausible reality. By the end of the 1920s, photographs--little flat pictures that came to represent the truth--had made their way into virtually every corner of contemporary life

Women and work culture leadership by Sharon Sachs( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Women and Work Culture Leadership, an exploratory study, indicates specialized management training can positively influence preparedness of female managers to assume a leadership role in changing the gender norms of their work cultures. Trainees are 16 White females, managers or professionals in 3 industries from 6 private employers in a midwestern metropolitan area, attending a 3-day seminar series. Gender, attitudes toward women, family status define groups with different responses to such a leadership role. Those not interested have traditional attitudes toward the rights and roles of women in society (Attitudes toward Women Scale, Spence and Helmreich); do not have masculine genders (Bem Sex Role Inventory, Sandra Lipsitz Bem); have young children, and often no mate; are younger (30s). They define their manager role and their family status as core to their identities and identify time as a barrier to such a role. Those interested in leading organization-wide change define contentment and their manager role as core to their identities. They appear discontent, perceiving gender to be highly significant in their organizations and preferring traits more representative of gender-balanced cultures that also avoid particular so-called masculine traits. Participants work in growing industries and occupations. Most are middle managers committed to their organizations. Based on post-training statements, trainees divide into two equal groups, Receptives and Reluctants. Four Receptives intend to lead organizational change (ROs) and four plan to focus on their work groups (RWs). Five Reluctants have no intention to be a leader for gender norm change unless some unlikely situation arises or condition is met (NUs) and three state yes they are interested in gender norm change but do not plan to personally lead such an effort (YBS). Both ROs and NUs report performing fewer leadership tasks often than other trainees (Leadership Task Performance, adapted from Gurman and Long)
