This book offers new ways of investigating relationships between learning and the spaces in which it takes place. It suggests that we need to understand more about the distinctiveness of teaching and learning in post-compulsory education, and what it is that matters about the design of its spaces. Starting from contemporary educational and architectural theories, it suggests alternative conceptual frameworks and methods that can help map the social and spatial practices of education in universities and colleges; so as to enhance the architecture of post-compulsory education.

the story of the first African Americans to serve at rank higher than messman in the modern Navy. B-1 was the first of over a hundred bands of black musicians the Navy used during World War II at postings stateside and in the Pacific, but records of its service went undiscovered for decades. Most contemporary historians have credited their distinction to others. Formed from a nucleus of North Carolina A&T students and graduates, the band was comprised of "the best, most talented musicians in North Carolina." Bandsmen trained at Norfolk and served at Chapel Hill with the Navy's pre-flight school. They were transferred to Pearl Harbor, to the largest posting of African-American servicemen in the world, despite the Navy's promise that they would serve in Chapel Hill for the war's duration. As frontline pioneers in breaking the Navy's color barrier in 1942, B-1 served during times of racial unrest without incident, despite provocation that lurked almost everywhere. Its men have long since VJ Day deserved their story being told.

This award-winning, lavishly illustrated history displays the wide range of North Carolina's architectural heritage, from colonial times to the beginning of World War II. North Carolina Architecture addresses the state's grand public and private buildings that have become familiar landmarks, but it also focuses on the quieter beauty of more common structures: farmhouses, barns, urban dwellings, log houses, mills, factories, and churches. These buildings, like the people who created them and who have used them, are central to the character of North Carolina. Now in a convenient new format, this portable edition of North Carolina Architecture retains all of the text of the original edition as well as hundreds of halftones by master photographer Tim Buchman. Catherine Bishir's narrative analyzes construction and design techniques and locates the structures in their cultural, political, and historical contexts. This extraordinary history of North Carolina's built world presents a unique and valuable portrait of the state.
