Clarke, Matthew – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2019
In contrast to a world that often feels filled with madness and disillusion, education is associated with reason and redemption. Yet from a psychoanalytic perspective, such positivity in relation to education suggests a fantasmatic dimension -- a refusal of the inevitable dislocations that prevent life from being harmonious and complete. In this…

Hostetler, Karl D. – Educational Theory, 2018
In this article Karl Hostetler portrays teachers as tragic ironists whose existence is prone to "playful disruptions of the soul," when the meaning and value of ideas pertinent to teaching--including "teaching" itself--become puzzling, prompting a reassessment and reinvigoration of those ideas. In developing his concept of…

Von Bergen, C. W.; Bressler, Martin S. – Administrative Issues Journal: Connecting Education, Practice, and Research, 2017
Recent discussions of leadership paradoxes have suggested that managers who can hold seemingly opposed, yet interrelated perspectives, are more adaptive and effective. One such paradox that has received relatively little attention is the "Stockdale Paradox," named after Admiral James Stockdale, an American naval officer who was held…

Seely, Natalee – Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, 2020
Covering traumatic story assignments is often central to a journalist's job. Violent crimes, natural disasters, and tragic personal struggles--these are newsworthy events. Studies have associated trauma coverage with higher rates of posttraumatic stress disorder, burnout, and other traumatic stress symptoms in reporters. This study uses a survey…

Watson, Karen – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2020
For the children in the inclusive early childhood classroom, there are acceptable, but only limited ways to speak about disability, and sometimes no way to speak. Discourses of tragedy and suffering have a pervasive, and historically resilient, association with disability in education. A subject of tragedy is discursively created in the classroom…

Sipra, Muhammad Aslam; Nasir, Muhammad Haseeb – Advances in Language and Literary Studies, 2014
In this article, the analysis of Shakespearean tragedies is presented. It reveals that Shakespeare's plays are full of conflicting thoughts, and expression is so convincing that it is not possible to plan a system of philosophy out of them. Each character, from the king to the clown, from the most highly intellectual to the simpleton, judges life…

Yuan-yuan, Peng – English Language Teaching, 2018
Hassan in "The Kite Runner" was brave, kind-hearted and loyal, but he still ended up with misery. From the three dimensional ethical perspective, Hassan's tragedy is not only greatly related to national and religious ethics, but also influenced by deformed family ethics. Thus it can be seen that national discrimination and religious…

Hamamra, Bilal Tawfiq – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
In addition to the methodology of new historicism, this article deploys feminism, performance studies and presentism to discuss the effects of the masculine practice of enforced marriage and turning a deaf ear to the female voice in Thomas Middleton's "Women Beware Women" and contemporary Palestine. I explain that Middleton's "Women…

Killian, Jeremy – Journal of Aesthetic Education, 2012
In "The Renaissance Rediscovery of Linear Perspective," one of Samuel Edgerton's claims is that Filippo Brunelleschi and his contemporaries did not develop a three-dimensional style of representing the world in painting as much as they reappropriated a way to depict the natural world in painting that most mirrored the human perception of it.…

Gibbons, Andrew – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2013
This is the second of two articles that are connected in a reading of "The plague" by Albert Camus. The other article is a determined narration of the events of a tragedy that befalls a city on the coast of Algeria. That article resists analysis beyond the decisions that are made regarding text to use, and of course interpretations to…

After mass crises, trauma-exposed children report increased psychological distress, yet most receive no mental health (MH) services and supports.
