Cohen-Shalev, Amir
140pp.The interface of old age and cinema provides a fascinating yet uncharted territory in the humanities and social sciences. Two central perspectives are explored: movies on old age by old filmmakers; and movies on old age by younger artists. The first perspective focuses on the cinematic representation of ageing from within, whereas the second examines the ways ageing is viewed from the outside. The distinction is based on the schism between the phenomenology of ageing and its social representation: The one hinges on intrinsic qualities of 'old age style' or 'late style'; the second addresses attitudes towards old age in general as well as towards ageing artists and the reception (or rejection) of their late films.The author combines these general perspectives as it shifts between text and context, beginning with ageing from the outside in order to introduce the semantics and pragmatics of the context (reception and filmmaking stylistic change, midlife images of old age), and continuing into the world of ageing as cinematically represented from within, by old filmmakers, an often idiosyncratic, metaphysical and sometimes unapproachable world. By providing a roadmap that charts previous scholarly paths of inquiry, this book offers a panoramic view of the direction of this new field of cinematic gerontology, and is essential reading for students and scholars of cinema, humanistic gerontology, psychology of art, and the sociology of old age and popular culture.

Edited By De Groof,Jan;De Smet,Chantal and Penneman,Hikde
From time immemorial, culture, education, and training have been assigned an essential role in preserving and developing common values that tie the international community together. Distinguished documents of international conferences and in various treaty texts and protocols show how cultural policy is the pre-eminent driving force for improvement of the intangible quality of individual and social life. Culture and education make an immeasurable contribution to the integration of a person in society and to the European society as such. Also from time immemorial, the principles of freedom and equality find their application in cultural and educational policy. Both support the rights to social multiformity and to protection of minorities; both also remind us that certain human values transgress every "local" culture. This volume considers in detail not only the recent trends in the organization and structure of art education, but also the interplay between the two within standard education, the application of the principle of freedom of movement and mobility of teachers and students, the equivalence of diplomas, and so forth. N.B.Slight fade mark to base of spine.
