Clash of Cultures: August in Paris is for (Movie) Lovers

Clash of Cultures: August in Paris is for (Movie) Lovers | Cultures | Scoop.it
August in Paris is pretty blah. I know some people love it because the Parisians clear out, it's much quieter and easier to get around.

Discovery and Exploration

Discovery and Exploration | Cultures | Scoop.it

I have a longstanding obsession with J.R.R. Tolkien’s 'The Hobbit,' starting with the great 1977 animated film that captured my young imagination.  Hobbits are content to be intensely local and ignore the world beyond their neighborhood until Gandalf instills in Bilbo and subsequently Frodo to learn about the wider world.  I’ve always seen that as push for all of us to get to know more about the world, and to experience it first-hand.  Sometimes academic geography forgets the explorer component of geographic inquiry and discovery; it is these types geographic quotes from the movies and books that I wish to share.

Huge fans of Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Love this application to your work.

Even movies like THE HOBBIT have geographic elements. No we cannot see it in class, but you can watch it at home or in the theater.

So Quiet For So Long - We Scream

Published on 11 Dec 2012

 

Violence against women rights defenders is endemic throughout the world. It happens on all continents and in all cultures. 

Women are targeted for defending human rights: they are threatened, abused and even murdered.
And young girls too.

This video highlights some of the many courageous women human rights defenders. 

Please share this video - and post to your websites and blogs - to help raise awareness of the challenges that women (and girls) still face.

*Warning: Video contains content which some viewers may find disturbing.*
