"Family Communication: Theory and Research," 1/eLorin Basden Arnold, "Rowan"" University"" ""Family Communication: Theories and Research "combines the topical coverage of an overview text with the diversity of stance typical of an anthology, providing both breadth and depth in the field. In addition to overviews of research and theory, most chapters include research exemplars written by prominent and rising scholars in family communication. Diversity is also a focus throughout the text, with a variety of family types, perspectives, and experiences included to expose students to contemporary family dynamics.

This book includes research and theory from both perspectives, thus enabling use in programs that particularly embrace either option. Features: "Research Exemplars" conclude with a series of discussion questions to stimulate critical analysis, and can be used as assignments or discussion points in the classroom. Each chapter provides extensive source references that can help guide additional student research for papers or other projects. Specific chapters on Sexuality and the Family and Health and Disability draw attention to these vital, yet often underexplored areas of family communication..

Language Program Leadership in a Changing World: An Ecological Model presents a comprehensive view of management and leadership in language programs as situated in a complex, globalized context with rapidly changing characteristics. The language program is described as an extensive ecology made up of many different types of interacting parts, which leaders of these programs must manage and balance with strong attention to context and to the future. The discussion emphasizes the complexity of the job of leading a language program and the many types of roles the leadership must fill in monitoring the program and its context for continuity and change and leading with an eye the future. The focus is on college and university English language programs, with discussion of the place they occupy within academia and in relation to other types of language programs (e.g. foreign language and English composition). The book is both practical and theoretical, offering case studies and overviews of "nuts and bolts" issues of administration such as financial, data, and people management, in addition to an original model that problematizes and theorizes the language program based on notions of ecology and frames, a review of research, and suggestions for further research.
