World is changing faster than ever due to the rapid advancement in the use of technology. It is a great concern of the Tertiary Educational Institutions (TEI) about the quality of their graduates to cope with the challenges of the global market of the 21st century. Self-Assessment (SA) is a powerful means for a TEI to understand and improve its educational performance. It enables a TEI to find out the learning outcomes, the value of the outcomes to stakeholders and the effectiveness of processes in contributing to these outcomes. It also enables an organization to identify its strengths and weakness. Self-Assessment at program level has four main components viz., systematic data gathering, data analysis, reflective processes and decision-making for ongoing improvement. We conducted a rigorous study on different aspects of Mechanical Engineering program. The results are presented in details in this report. A peer reviewer's panel evaluated the findings. Their comments and recommendations are also presented. Since self-assessment is a first step for external accreditation, we believe that it will be helpful to those who are seeking external program recognition.

Sounding the Novel
38,00 € *

‘Sounding the Novel’ investigates how American fiction in the early twenty-first century registers the sonic mediality of voice. It looks at ways in which novels enlist the reader’s auditory imagination to establish literary soundscapes where the sound of a voice becomes the main driver for the development of the story and for narrative experimentation. With its focus on novels written after 2000 by Richard Powers, Karen Tei Yamashita, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Jennifer Egan, this study examines the aesthetic and discursive investment in the acoustics of voice as a constitutive part of contemporary literary imaginaries. Drawing on literary theory, sound studies, and philosophy of voice, ‘Sounding the Novel’ discusses how written representations of vocal expression explore the socio-cultural functions of its resonance and its material impact as a corporeal medium in the context of U.S. auditory cultures.

“Brilliant . . . Spectacular and troubling and topical . . . Filled with charged moments and observations.” — Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air “Groundbreaking . . . Only fiction has the power to ask the questions that bring the past to life. [John Okada] has done that. . . . In this way, with this one book, [he] has served to rectify the world.” — Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being “Iconic . . . Thinking back to writers like . . . John Okada, it is clear that genius is too often unrecognized in its day.” — Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sympathizer, in an op-ed for The New York Times “A daring book . . . A close literary kin to Richard Wright’s Native Son . . . There is no other novel like it about Japanese Americans in the postwar period. . . . A cautionary tale . . . of the incarceration of immigrant families based on racial prejudice, executive privilege, and the false assertion of military necessity . . . Over a half century later, Okada’s novel challenges us once again with the question of character, asking us, as individuals and as a society, what are we made of.” — Karen Tei Yamashita, from the Introduction

The Grave on the Wall
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Longlisted for 2020 PEN Open Book Award Best of 2019: Nonfiction - Entropy Magazine A memoir and book of mourning, a grandson’s attempt to reconcile his own uncontested citizenship with his grandfather’s lifelong struggle. Award-winning poet Brandon Shimoda has crafted a lyrical portrait of his paternal grandfather, Midori Shimoda, whose life—child migrant, talented photographer, suspected enemy alien and spy, desert wanderer, American citizen—mirrors the arc of Japanese America in the twentieth century. In a series of pilgrimages, Shimoda records the search to find his grandfather, and unfolds, in the process, a moving elegy on memory and forgetting. Praise for The Grave on the Wall: 'Shimoda brings his poetic lyricism to this moving and elegant memoir, the structure of which reflects the fragmentation of memories. … It is at once wistful and devastating to see Midori's life come full circle … In between is a life with tragedy, love, and the horrors unleashed by the atomic bomb.'—Booklist, starred review 'In a weaving meditation, Brandon Shimoda pens an elegant eulogy for his grandfather Midori, yet also for the living, we who survive on the margins of graveyards and rituals of our own making.'—Karen Tei Yamashita, author of Letters to Memory 'Sometimes a work of art functions as a dream. At other times, a work of art functions as a conscience. In the tradition of Juan Rulfo’s Pedro Páramo, Brandon Shimoda's The Grave on the Wall is both. It is also the type of fragmented reckoning only America could instigate.'—Myriam Gurba, author of Mean “Within this haunted sepulcher built out of silence, loss, and grief—its walls shadowed by the traumas of racial oppression and violence—a green river lined with peach trees flows beneath a bridge that leads back to the grandson.'—Jeffrey Yang, author of Hey, Marfa: Poems 'It is part dream, part memory, part forgetting, part identity. It is a remarkable exploration of how citizenship is forged by the brutal US imperial forces—through slave labor, forced detention, indiscriminate bombing, historical amnesia and wall. If someone asked me, Where are you from? I would answer, From The Grave on the Wall.'—Don Mee Choi, author of Hardly War 'Shimoda intercedes into the absences, gaps and interstices of the present and delves the presence of mystery. This mystery is part of each of us. Shimoda outlines that mystery in silence and silhouette, in objects left behind at site-specific travels to Japan and in the disparate facts of his grandpa’s FBI file. Gratitude to Brandon Shimoda for taking on the mystery which only literature accepts as the basic challenge.'—Sesshu Foster, author of City of the Future 'Shimoda is a mystic writer … He puts what breaches itself (always) onto the page, so that the act of writing becomes akin to paper-making: an attention to fibers, coagulation, texture and the water-fire mixtures that signal irreversible alteration or change. … he has written a book that touches the bottom of my own soul.'—Bhanu Kapil, author of Ban en Banlieue

Cities of Others
38,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Asian American literature abounds with complex depictions of American cities as spaces that reinforce racial segregation and prevent interactions across boundaries of race, culture, class, and gender. However, in Cities of Others, Xiaojing Zhou uncovers a much different narrative, providing the most comprehensive examination to date of how Asian American writers - both celebrated and overlooked - depict urban settings. Zhou goes beyond examining popular portrayals of Chinatowns by paying equal attention to life in other parts of the city. Her innovative and wide-ranging approach sheds new light on the works of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese American writers who bear witness to a variety of urban experiences and reimagine the American city as other than a segregated nation-space. Drawing on critical theories on space from urban geography, ecocriticism, and postcolonial studies, Zhou shows how spatial organization shapes identity in the works of Sui Sin Far, Bienvenido Santos, Meena Alexander, Frank Chin, Chang-rae Lee, Karen Tei Yamashita, and others. She also shows how the everyday practices of Asian American communities challenge racial segregation, reshape urban spaces, and redefine the identity of the American city. From a reimagining of the nineteenth-century flaneur figure in an Asian American context to providing a framework that allows readers to see ethnic enclaves and American cities as mutually constitutive and transformative, Zhou gives us a provocative new way to understand some of the most important works of Asian American literature.
