This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Visual Information Expert Workshop, VIEW 2006, held in Paris, France, in April 2006.
The 23 revised full papers were carefully selected from numerous submissions during two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The book is categorized in three main parts: pixelization theory, pixelization applications, pixelization and cognition. The papers are organized in topical sections on pixelization, pixelization and multidimensional data, spatial pixelization, temporal pixelization, qualitative pixelization, as well as pixelization and cognition.
" Soto is a clever and convincing reader of modernist prose and makes a fair case for the value of the generational model. [His book] beats notions of 'ages' or 'epochs', because it is organic and bridges individual and collective historiography, while also allowing for the non-contemporaneity of the contemporaneous, the coexistence of multiple generations in time and space." -- "Modern Language Review" " ["The Modernist Nation' s"] historical span is impressive, ranging from Ralph Waldo Emerson to James Baldwin. . . . One of Soto's contributions is to continue the work of thinking about race in conjunction with American nationality. . . . Soto takes 'seriously the assertion that American writers imagine their craft as a kind of childbirth, a figure of speech long connected to artist creation. Such an idea leads him to consider writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and William Carlos Williams in whose work he finds frequent analogies between writing and procreation." -- Donna M. Campbell," American Literary Scholarship" " "Modernist Nation" constructs a history of modernist literary movements and their labels as a way of detailing the improvisational qualities of American identity. . . . Soto's. . . .work is an important contribution to American literary studies because [it illustrates] how racial and ethnic experiences make claims on the shape of our cultural traditions and critical practices. . . . Soto's evaluations are valuable because he sees the traps of essentialist thought in movement labels." "-- "Walton Muyumba, "electronic book review"
In this provocative study, Michael Soto examines African American cultural forms through the lens of census history to tell the story of how U.S. officialdom - in particular the Census Bureau - placed persons of African descent within a shifting taxonomy of racial difference, and how African American writers and intellectuals described a far more complex situation of interracial social contact and intra-racial diversity. What we now call African American identity and the literature that gives it voice emerged out of social, cultural, and intellectual forces that fused in Harlem roughly one century ago.Measuring the Harlem Renaissance sifts through a wide range of authors and ideas -- from W. E. B. Du Bois, Rudolph Fisher, and Nella Larsen to Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, and Wallace Thurman, and from census history to the Great Migration - to provide a fresh take on late nineteenth - and twentieth - century literature and social thought. Soto reveals how Harlem came to be known as the ""cultural capital of black America,"" and how these ideas left us with unforgettable fiction and poetry.
