The book is for teachers and all educators, program builders, and policymakers to learn about your students and to learn strategies. To learn about students, you will learn for example about English Language Learners in the U.S. and Australia, Muslim females who wear the scarf, undocumented students, displaced Albanian-Kosavars, refugee resettlement programs, deaf students. All types of educators can also learn about programs in Australia, Portugal, France, and Spain. Strategies are suggested for critical media literacy, inter- and trans-cultural understanding, professional development for all types of educators and especially ELL, best practices of schools with programs for displaced students. The book addresses issues of teacher education and school policy, in a context of media representation, the heightened security environment of Western nations and fear factors like Islamophobia. Misrepresented cultures and ways of life are pretexts to reject languages and repositories of knowledge. Displaced children and youth must negotiate the difficult process of integration, affecting their identities and society as a whole. The issue is how to cultivate the distinctiveness rather than merely assimilate through language and standardized content. The theme of the book is Language Education Policy for a new nomenclature for displaced students, ie newcomers, neighbors & guests. The book brings together narratives of experience and approaches that provide a deep rationale for LEP that addresses the realities. We hope to transform the dominant paradigm of what are really linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms.Chapters help teachers address: The presence of displaced students, whether first generation or beyond, and in both western and non-western (or north-south) countries; fosters the cultivation of the distinctiveness of their languages and cultures. How can teachers, schools, and policymakers deal with non-dominant languages and non-standardized knowledge?Language Education Policies and teachers¿ practices can help repair the contextual, psychological, ideological and social fabric of human lives and societies impacted by misconceptions based on language ideologies and language status that lead to miscommunication, discrimination, social divisions, violence, war, and human struggle, especially for those displaced.

The question, "Are we alone in the cosmos?" has been answered. We are not alone. Geologist-paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ, stated, as early as the mid-1920s, that intelligent life likely exists elsewhere and distinguished scientists of today, including Harvard biologist, E. O. Wilson; Cambridge cosmologist, Stephen Hawking; astrophysicist and noted UAP researcher, Jacques Vallee; astronomer, Allen Hynek; and many others concur. The oral traditions of Native American elders teach that they have interacted periodically with Star People who are respected ancestors. Credible witness-participants today describe abductions by benevolent and malevolent Others. Discoveries by the Kepler, Hubble, and Gaia space telescopes, ground-based arrays of radio telescopes, and TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) suggest that in the Milky Way, twenty-five billion planets are in the life-friendly Goldilocks Zone. In Third Displacement: Cosmobiology, Cosmolocality, Cosmosocioecology, author John Hart links experiences with research in science-based and Spirit-focused books and articles--including narratives about close encounters with Visitors from elsewhere in space (ETI) or Others from other cosmos dimensions (IDI)--in examination of the claim that Intelligent ExoEarth life exists, that Otherkind has visited humankind.

Colonial scholars have taken immense pleasure in portraying Africans as possessed by spirits but as lacking possession and ownership of their resources, including land. Erroneously deemed to be thoroughly spiritually possessed but lacking senses of material possession and ownership of resources, Africans have been consistently dispossessed and displaced from the era of enslavement, through colonialism, to the neocolonial era. Delving into the historiography of dispossession and displacement on the continent of Africa, and in particular in Zimbabwe, this book also tackles contemporary forms of dispossession and displacement manifesting in the ongoing transnational corporations land grabs in Africa, wherein African peasants continue to be dispossessed and displaced. Focusing on the topical issues around dispossession and repossession of land, and the attendant displacements in contemporary Zimbabwe, the book theorises displacements from a decolonial Pan-Africanist perspective and it also unpacks various forms of displacements – corporeal, noncorporeal, cognitive, spiritual, genealogical and linguistic displacements, among others. The book is an excellent read for scholars from a variety of disciplines such as Geography, Sociology, Social Anthropology, History, Linguistics, Development Studies, Science and technology Studies, Jurisprudence and Social Theory, Law and Philosophy. The book also offers intellectual grit for policy makers and implementers, civil society organisations including activists as well as thinkers interested in decolonisation and transformation.
