Gary Hall, A Stubborn Fury: How Writing Works in Elitist Britain, Open Humanities Press (2020).
In A Stubborn Fury, Gary Hall offers a powerful and provocative look at the consequences of this inequality for English culture in particular. Focusing on the literary novel and the memoir, he investigates, in terms that are as insightful as they are irreverent, why so much writing in England is uncritically realist, humanist and anti-intellectual. A Stubborn Fury addresses that most urgent of questions: what can be done about English literary culture’s addiction to the worldview of privileged, middle-class white men, very much to the exclusion of more radically inventive writing.
MDR_publication.png Miriam De Rosa and Stefano Baschiera (eds), Film and Domestic Space: Architectures, Representations, Dispositif, Edinburgh University Press (2020).
Film and Domestic Space brings together a range of perspectives, theories and approaches to explore home/house in cinema. To do so, it goes beyond the representational approach to the analysis of domestic space in cinema, in order to look at it as a dispositif as well. The book draws on a broad range of theoretical disciplines and on a selection of case studies including works by directors such as Chantal Akerman, Agnès Varda, Claire Denis, Amos Gitai and Todd Haynes.

Game Science in Hybrid Learning Spaces explores the potential, implications, and impact of game-based approaches and interventions in response to the blurring of boundaries between digital and physical as well as formal and informal learning spaces and contexts. The book delves into the concept, opportunities, and challenges of hybrid learning, which aims to reduce the barriers of time and physical space in teaching and learning practices, fostering seamless, sustained, and measurable learning experience and outcomes beyond the barriers of formal education and physical learning contexts.
