4 A Foucault Primer - Alec McHoul; Wendy Grace both of Murdoch University, Melbourne, Australia. & McHoul, Alec; Grace, Wendy
Auteur : Alec McHoul; Wendy Grace both of Murdoch University, Melbourne, Australia. & McHoul, Alec; Grace, Wendy
Genre : Philosophy
Who are we today? That deceptively simple question continued to be asked by the French historian and philosopher, Michel Foucault, who for the last three decades has had a profound influence on English-speaking scholars in the humanities and social sciences.; This text is designed for undergraduates and others who feel in need of some assistance when coming to grips with Foucault's voluminous and complex writings. Instead of dealing with them chronologically, however, this book concentrates on some of their central concepts, primarily Foucault's rethinking of the categories of "discourse", "power", and " the subject".; Foucault's writings contribute collectively to what he himself calls "an ontology of the present". His historical research was always geared towards showing how things could have been and still could be otherwise. This is especia

5 Streets of Melbourne - Thierry Nguyen Cuu
Auteur : Thierry Nguyen Cuu
Genre : Photography
In this issue of my series Shades of Light, I bring to you the one day life of a Leica photographer wandering the streets of an iconic city, Melbourne.
I spent the day in Melbourne with nothing but my Leica M9. Although I packed a few lenses, I mainly used the 50mm Summilux ASPH.
I remember reading a lot of magazines, books, weblogs and also online videos, when asked who they would like to photograph along, most of photographers would throw out big names in the photography history.
While I look up to a lot of photographers, established or even new comers, while I admire the work of many, the one person that I really want to shoot along is my father.
We share the same passion for photography, actually I must say that I got it from him, we even use the same gears (again I walk on his footsteps) I just realised that we never had or took the opportunity to shoot toget

6 Melbourne - Sophie Cunningham
Auteur : Sophie Cunningham
Genre : Australia & Oceania
A year in Melbourne's city life told in diary form, this contemporary and personal portrait depicts major events from the Australian heat wave, which culminated in more than 400 bushfires, to the destructive deluge of a hailstorm. While walking through Melbourne’s oldest suburb to its largest market, experiencing an Australian Rules Football game, and attending the comedy festival, writer Sophie Cunningham journeys deep into her own recollections of the city she grew up in, and tells stories from its history. She strolls by Melbourne’s rivers and creeks and considers the history of the wetlands and river that sit at Melbourne’s heart, for it is water—the corralling of it, the excess of it, the squandering of it, the lack of it—that defines Melbourne’s history, its present, and its future.

So the sunlight came in and looked at her; a little figure in a white frock and blue sash, with the hair cut short all over a little round head, and a face not only just now full of some grave concern, but with habitually thoughtful eyes and a wise little mouth.

With her name on the police blotter, she eventually left the streets and offered her services to a high-class brothel.
