Bawds, Babes, And Breeches: Regendering Theater After The English Restoration, Laura Larson University of Puget Sound
Bawds, Babes, And Breeches: Regendering Theater After The English Restoration, Laura Larson
Restoration England (1660~1720) was a raucous time for theater-making. After an 18- year Puritanical ban on the theater, and with the restoration of the worldly Charles II to the throne, English theater underwent a pivotal rebirth. At this time, women were allowed to act on the public stage for the first time, an event carrying enormous implications for gender roles. This paper argues that actresses posed a threat to the patriarchal hierarchy that was in place at this time. Their unique position in professional theater and unusual access to a public voice not available to the rest of women ...

Shattering The Political Or The Question Of War In Heidegger’S "Letter On Humanism.”, Babette Babich Fordham University
Shattering The Political Or The Question Of War In Heidegger’S "Letter On Humanism.”, Babette Babich
Jean Beaufret’s question concerning humanism was “politically” framed on several levels as initially presented to Heidegger.1 Accordingly, Heidegger’s own response was itself political: invoking both technology and the self-same question of science that we remain—and to this day—still “too pious” (in Nietzsche’s words) to be able to frame as a question: the very same question Heidegger develops in his later lectures delivered to the businessmen of Germany, including his Question Concerning Technology. The preoccupation with thinking technology and thinking science remains with Heidegger to the end of his life. Even more significant perhaps (particularly ...

Chains, Marina K. Crouse '13 Gettysburg College
Chains, Marina K. Crouse '13
Chains is a poem that was inspired by the events surrounding the Steubenville Rape Case, and it is my interpretation of what the victim could have been feeling. The poem was written as a way for me to try to understand how something like this could have happened.

Max Steiner And The Music Of Casablanca, Coralin Davelaar Western Michigan University
Max Steiner And The Music Of Casablanca, Coralin Davelaar
The Hilltop Review
Not only did Max Steiner not like the song, he thought that it was not appropriate for the film. Nevertheless, as every film buff knows, ―As Time Goes By‖ stayed in the film Casablanca, and the song has almost become emblematic of the film itself. However, it is but one song in a very musical film that proved challenging for veteran film composer Max Steiner. It was not the amount of material that he had to compose (as with Gone with the Wind), but rather the music that was already built into the drama that he had to incorporate into ...

Feminist Research Ethics, Informed Consent, And Potential Harms, Melinda McCormick Western Michigan University
Feminist Research Ethics, Informed Consent, And Potential Harms, Melinda Mccormick
The Hilltop Review
Feminist research is fraught with ethical dilemmas, some of which concern informed consent and the possibility of potential harms to respondents. I review several dilemmas addressed in the literature and how feminist researchers resolved the issues. I also look at the National Association of Social Workers‘ Code of Ethics and how the concepts of dual relationships and boundaries in social work practice may offer helpful guidelines to feminist re-searchers.

Burgeoning Biraciality: What It Means To Be A Young Mulatto In America Today, Via Perkins Salem State University
Burgeoning Biraciality: What It Means To Be A Young Mulatto In America Today, Via Perkins
In the form of 25 open-ended questions, I interviewed six half-black, half-white Salem State University students to seek their uncensored experiences in defining themselves and their world as biracial people. I endeavored to build upon the little existing literature that focused on the complexities of being "mulatto" - a loaded term in and of itself. Transitioning from a once uncommon, disgraced, and shamed community, half-black, half-white individuals now represent the largest group of biracial people in America, which comes with its own modern challenges and triumphs. In the vein of Lise Funderburg's Black, White, Other, these six narratives weave together ...
The Antibiotic Revolution, Alyssa Olsen Providence College
The Antibiotic Revolution, Alyssa Olsen
Spring 2013, Kuhn's Philosophy of Science
In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillin, which revolutionized the way infections were treated. This discovery was revolutionary because it impacted the scientific field, the medical field, the pharmaceutical industry, and all of humanity. Alexander Fleming’s discovery of Penicillin sparked the development of antibiotics, which has continued to save people’s lives since the revolution. Thomas Kuhn would qualify the discovery of Penicillin by Alexander Fleming as a revolution because it led to a paradigm shift. Prior to the discovery of Penicillin, patients died from trivial injuries and infections. Fleming’s discovery of Penicillin is revolutionary because it changed the ...

How Do You Build A Discipline From The Ground Up?, Robert H. Ellison
English Faculty Research
This is the keynote address delivered to the 21st Annual WV undergraduate literary symposium, hosted by Marshall University on March 2, 2013. It presents a kind of "wish list" for scholars in sermon studies: we still need "a clear sense of the canon," places to "interact and network" with colleagues, and a dedicated journal "where scholars can publish their work." People working in other fields are fortunate in that they can usually take these things for granted, but sermon scholars still have some work to do to bring them to fruition.

Groundbreaking Strides Without Transformational Change: The Integration Of Gender Perspectives Into Us Department Of State Peacebuilding Strategy Under Secretary Clinton, Jessie M. Durrett
DWA Student Scholarship
Although peacebuilding aims to address root causes of conflict, while constructing stable institutions and social relations, conventional peacebuilding’s negligence of gender in post-conflict societies and peace processes has restricted its potential. Most actors that contribute to peacebuilding efforts have participated in this ignorance, causing an outburst of feminist literature highlighting the severe need to integrate gender perspectives into peacebuilding. However, existing literature provides few specific recommendations and insufficiently examines mechanisms for integrating gender into state-led peacebuilding. Major actors, such as the United States, have recently embarked on attempts to incorporate gender perspectives into peacebuilding, creating large scopes of policy ...
