Book Description

Set over twenty years of convulsive change, Noon is the story of Rehan Tabassum, a young man whose heart is split across two cultures' troubled divide. Throughout his young life, Rehan has been aware of his father's absence. The journey to find him is long and difficult, from the glitter of his mother's New Delhi to the Pakistan of her former lover, the man Rehan has never known. Through lands of sudden wealth and hidden violence, in a toxic atmosphere of blackmail and moral danger, he travels towards the centre of a dark and shifting world. But his imagined destination is simply another beginning ...'As the political and personal undergo seismic shifts, Taseer grapples with new ways of telling stories. In both form and content, he conveys with great acuity what happens when the ground beneath our feet is shaken to its core' Independent 'An engrossing and gifted writer' GQ 'Imbued with a feel of latent menace, Noon explores a morally unedifying world of power, corruption, violence and complicity' Guardian 'Gripping' Sunday TimesPilot Project, Marjo de Theije and Lenie Brouwer (The Netherlands) Chapter 6 Lessons Learnt from the Experience-Rich Anthropology Project, David Zeitlyn (U.K.) Chapter 7 Ethnography, Experience and Electronic Text: A Discussion of the Potential of Hypermedia for Teaching, and Representation in Anthropology, Sarah Pink (U.K.) Chapter 8 Films in the Classroom, Beate Engelbrecht and Rolf Husmann (Germany) Chapter 9 Teaching Museum Anthropology in the Twenty-First century, Mary Bouquet (U.K.) Part 3 Experiential Learning Chapter 10 Professional Practice in Anthropology: Course Overview, Disciplinary and Pedagogic Approaches, Stella Mascarenhas-Keyes (U.K.) Chapter 11 Living Learning: Teaching as Interaction and Dialogue, Dorle Drackle (Germany) Chapter 12 Ethnodrama in Anthropology Education, Giuliano Tescari (Italy) Chapter 13 Travelling Cultures: Study Tours in the Social Anthropological Curriculum and Beyond, Andrew Russell (U.K.) Chapter 14 Beginning with Images: An Introduction to Imagination-Based Educational Methodologies, Iain R.
