    Comment se constituer une toute nouvelle famille de bric et de broc ?
    Leon, 9 ans, est un garçon courageux. Quand un jour sa mère n'arrive plus à se lever le matin, il s'occupe de son demi-frère Jake. Quand l'assistante sociale emmène les deux garçons chez Maureen au gros ventre et aux bras de boxeur, c'est lui qui sait de quoi le bébé a besoin. Mais quand on lui enlève son frère et qu'on lui dit que chez ses nouveaux parents il n'y a pas de place pour un grand garçon à la peau sombre, c'en est trop.
    Heureusement Leon rencontre Tufty, qui est grand et fort, qui fait du vélo comme lui et qui, dans son jardin, lui apprend comment prendre soin d'une petite plante fragile. Mais Leon n'oublie pas sa promesse de retrouver Jake et de réunir les siens comme avant. Le jour où il entend une conversation qui ne lui était pas destinée, il décide de passer à l'action...
    Émouvant, dramatique mais aussi jubilatoire, Je m'appelle Leon évoque de façon éloquente la force de l'amour, le lien indéchirable entre frères, et ce qui, en fin de compte, fait une famille.

  • AVANT. Elles sont quatre, Bex, Jenni, Ellori, et Ret. Quatre filles populaires, survoltées, volontaires, à l'avenir étincelant ; le système solaire dans lequel Ellory a enfin trouvé sa place, juste derrière Ret, leur soleil.
    MAINTENANT. Ellory est seule. Le groupe d'amies autrefois soudé a explosé, déchiré par les secrets, les trahisons, la déception, et l'événement qui a bouleversé leurs vies.
    AVANT. Des jours d'été ensoleillés. Des fêtes. Une en particulier, où Ellory rencontre Matthias. Le début d'une histoire d'amour incroyable et lumineuse.
    MAINTENANT. Ellory, de retour au lycée après deux mois d'exclusion doit survivre à la terminale. Plus de petit ami, plus d'amies. Pas de retour en arrière possible. Tourmentée par certains, recherchée par d'autres, elle est troublée par de mystérieux mots, déposés dans son casier par quelqu'un qui ne la laissera pas oublier. Consumée par la culpabilité, Ellory comprend que, même dans le présent, le passé est partout.
    Après un drame, le chemin à suivre pour se reconstruire n'est pas sans embûches... et pour aller de l'avant, Ellory devra découvrir sa vérité, derrière les mensonges qu'elle se raconte.
    « Complexe, haletante, et magnifiquement écrite, une histoire captivante des frontières troubles entre amitié, amour, et découverte de soi. Un livre exigeant, qu'on ne peut plus lâcher, une fois ouvert. »
    Karen M. McManus, "Qui ment ?"
    « Subtile et déchirant, avec une écriture qui jaillit des pages qui défilent, "Toxic Girls" s'empare à la perfection des répliques cataclysmiques du premier amour, des premières trahisons, et du premier deuil. »
    Kara Thomas, "Little Monsters"
    « Kit Frick allie avec brio la verve d'une conteuse expérimentée au coeur d'une poétesse confirmée, pour créer une percutante histoire d'amour, de mensonges, et d'amitié complexe. »
    Jeff Zentner, "Le Roi Serpent"

  • Le regard aigu du poète se pose sur la nature aussi bien que sur la nature humaine. Sa plume sert le dialogue et les allers-retours entre les deux qu'il questionne de façon ludique, fraîche et humoristique. Sage et enfant à la fois, Kit Kelen cherche à montrer au-delà du regard et des sens, ce qui échappe le plus souvent mais que le poème saisit en un instant.

  • Je suis Chinoise Malgache, née d'un père chinois et d'une mère métisse. Mon père est mort alors que j'avais juste trois ans et j'ai longtemps souffert de l'avoir si peu connu. Dès l'âge de onze ans j'ai été contrainte de quitter ma famille et de faire l'apprentissage de la vie... Cette autobiographie transportera le lecteur de ma naissance à Madagascar, l'île rouge, à mon arrivée en France, seule sous la neige, à l'âge de 18 ans.

  • This book discusses how China's transformations in the last century have shaped its arts and its philosophical aesthetics. For instance, how have political, economic and cultural changes shaped its aesthetic developments? Further, how have its long-standing beliefs and traditions clashed with modernizing desires and forces, and how have these changes materialized in artistic manifestations? In addition to answering these questions, this book also brings Chinese philosophical concepts on aesthetics into dialogue with those of the West, making an important contribution to the fields of art, comparative aesthetics and philosophy.

  • With increasing global challenges, the Belt and Road initiative seems to offer one possible platform to think about different possibilities and pathways to promote international collaboration and development covering Asia, Europe, Africa, and other countries. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education, as a key focus, provides  valuable perspectives for governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental agencies wanting to innovate and advance both ICT and education independently and collaboratively. This book highlights the burgeoning of ICT in education in eleven countries,  with particular emphasis placed on the context of the Belt and Road Initiative. ICT has increasingly important roles in education including improve teaching and learning qualities, as well as equity in education. The prominent contributors describe the state-of-the-art of ICT in education in eleven countries based on six major themes (policy perspectives, infrastructure, educational resources, ICT integration into practices, students' ICT competence, and teachers' professional development). We hope the in-depth discussions included in this book would provoke more academic and policy insights globally.

  • This book is a collection of selected essays presented at the International Symposium on «Contemporary Asian Modernities: Transnationality, Interculturality and Hybridity» hosted by the Humanities Programme of Hong Kong Baptist University in September 2006. As «modernity» has been used to describe the cultural, economic and socio-political conditions in the Western worlds, the time in which we now live and the Asian countries where capitalistic transformation is extensively carried out are already articulating their own descriptions. The essays collected here discuss the notions of «contemporary», «Asia» and «modernities» as they relate to the global trend of adopting capitalism. They probe into questions related to modernity as well as global modernity, ranging from China in particular to Asia in general. As reflected in the pluriversal meanings in the title, the book endeavours to make critical inquiries into the concept of modernity/modernities from different perspectives.

  • This book introduces readers to the latest state of research and development in seamless learning. It consolidates various approaches to and practices in seamless learning from a range of techno-pedagogical, socio-situated and socio-cultural perspectives. Further, it details our current understanding of learning in both formal and informal settings, crossover learning, incidental learning, and context-based learning approaches, together with these aspects' linkages to the notion of seamlessness. The book is divided into sections addressing the theorization of seamless learning, understanding informal learning, research methodological issues, technology-enabled seamless learning and real-world applications of seamless learning.

  • Combining a historical approach of Chineseness and a contemporary perspective on the social construction of Chineseness, this book provides comparative insights to understand the contingent complexities of ethnic and social formations in both China and among the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia. This book focuses on the experiences and practices of these people, who as mobile agents are free to embrace or reject being defined as Chinese by moving across borders and reinterpreting their own histories. By historicizing the notion of Chineseness at local, regional, and global levels, the book examines intersections of authenticity, authority, culture, identity, media, power, and international relations that support or undermine different instances of Chineseness and its representations. It seeks to rescue the present from the past by presenting case studies of contingent encounters that produce the ideas, practices, and identities that become the categories nations need to justify their existence. The dynamic, fluid representations of Chineseness illustrate that it has never been an undifferentiated whole in both space and time. Through physical movements and inherited knowledge, agents of Chineseness have deployed various interpretive strategies to define and represent themselves vis-à-vis the local, regional, and global in their respective temporal experiences. This book will be relevant to students and scholars in Chinese studies and Asian studies more broadly, with a focus on identity politics, migration, popular culture, and international relations."The Chinese overseas often saw themselves as caught between a rock and a hard place. The collection of essays here highlights the variety of experiences in Southeast Asia and China that suggest that the rock can become a huge boulder with sharp edges and the hard places can have deadly spikes. A must read for those who wonder whether Chineseness has ever been what it seems." Wang Gungwu, University Professor, National University of Singapore.

    "By including reflections on constructions of Chineseness in both China itself and in various Southeast Asian sites, the book shows that being Chinese is by no means necessarily intertwined with China as a geopolitical concept, while at the same time highlighting the incongruities and tensions in the escapable relationship with China that diasporic Chinese subjects variously embody, expressed in a wide range of social phenomena such as language use, popular culture, architecture and family relations. The book is a very welcome addition to the necessary ongoing conversation on Chineseness in the 21st century." Ien Ang, Distinguished Professor of Cultural Studies, Western Sydney University.

  • Transnational Canadas marks the first sustained inquiry into the relationship between globalization and Canadian literature written in English. Tracking developments in the literature and its study from the centennial period to the present, it shows how current work in transnational studies can provide new insights for researchers and students. Arguing first that the dichotomy of Canadian nationalism and globalization is no longer valid in today's economic climate, Transnational Canadas explores the legacy of leftist nationalism in Canadian literature. It examines the interventions of multicultural writing in the 1980s and 1990s, investigating the cultural politics of the period and how they increasingly became part of Canada's state structure. Under globalization, the book concludes, we need to understand new forms of subjectivity and mobility as sites for cultural politics and look beyond received notions of belonging and being. An original contribution to the study of Canadian literature, Transnational Canadas seeks to invigorate discussion by challenging students and researchers to understand the national and the global simultaneously, to look at the politics of identity beyond the rubric of multiculturalism, and to rethink the slippery notion of the political for the contemporary era.
