Political Islamism In Tunisia: A History Of Repression And A Complex Forum For Potential Change, 2015 University of Illinois at Chicago
Political Islamism In Tunisia: A History Of Repression And A Complex Forum For Potential Change, Sarah R. Louden
This paper argues that the growth and legalization of Political Islamism in Tunisia will naturally hinder the contemporary influence of violent extremism, leading to partnership and inclusion within a Democratic government. The basis for this claim rests on the idea that the condemnation and repression of Political Islamism in Tunisia historically backfired and led to the further underground radicalization of Tunisians, along with scores of human rights abuses by authorities. Specifically, this essay will focus on the moderate Islamist party Ennahda, the Salafist party Ansar al-Sharia, and their complex relationship to each other as well as to domestic and regional ...
Suspected Of Having A Book: American Slavery As A Literacy Sponsor, 2015 St. John Fisher College
Suspected Of Having A Book: American Slavery As A Literacy Sponsor, Cody Schweickert
Undergraduate Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research
Applying concepts from Deborah Brandt’s “Sponsors of Literacy” to Frederick Douglass’ “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass” explains how American slavery functioned as an institutional literacy sponsor, and how Douglass achieved literacy against the opposing forces of his sponsor. During the antebellum period, the American slavery institution, fueled by pro-slavery Anglo Saxons, maintained a social structure that guaranteed political, economic, social, and legal advantages for whites over African Americans. Afraid that literacy acquisition for African Americans might lead to their self-empowerment and eventual freedom, pro-slavery whites dedicated themselves to anti-literacy legislation and other measures aimed at keeping African ...

Qui A Connu Lolita: Who Killed Lolita? A Review, 2015 Battery Radio
Qui A Connu Lolita: Who Killed Lolita? A Review, Chris Brookes
The brilliant and disturbing work Qui a Connu Lolita? (Who Knew Lolita?), or as it is more provocatively titled in the authors' English translation Who Killed Lolita?, starts with a precis: voices tell us there have been three deaths, of a mother and her two children, the bodies found in their Marseilles apartment two months later.
This is a composition for radio, not a collection of easy evidence for a police dossier. Who did kill Lolita? Who is to blame? The program draws its power from suggestion, like footnotes plucked from a subterranean soundtrack. It poses uncomfortable questions and leaves ...
Understanding Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care, 2015 Washington University in St Louis
Understanding Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care, Mackenzie Findlay
Undergraduate Research Symposium Posters & Abstracts
In rural Madagascar, women seeking reproductive health care may have the option of consulting their traditional birth attendant, local midwife or biomedical physician. In those cases in which a woman does have a choice, our understandings of how she makes that decision is limited. In my research, I investigate women’s perspectives on the health care options available to them and seek to understand the factors that influence their decision to choose a particular type of care. I seek not to validate biomedical care and critique traditional practices; rather, I seek to understand the interplay between cultural traditions and the ...
Orphans’ Hope: An Evaluation Of Residential Orphan Care In Malawi Africa, 2015 Southeastern University - Lakeland
Orphans’ Hope: An Evaluation Of Residential Orphan Care In Malawi Africa, Emily B. Johnston
Selected Honors Theses
It is estimated that over 7 million orphans are institutionalized worldwide (sos-usa.org). Research has shown that while orphanages are often able to meet physical needs better than alternative forms of care, orphanage life can be harmful for the wellbeing of a child. This study evaluated orphan care at one institution in Malawi, Africa, to determine the effectiveness of care and suggest interventions that could position the children for success. Through interviews with caretakers and administrators, it was found that residential care in Malawi could be an effective form of care. The greatest needs were consistent behavioral intervention and sexual ...

Historic Black Lives Matter: Archaeology As Activism In The 21st Century, Kelley F. Deetz, Ellen Chapman, Ana Edwards, Phil Wilayto
African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter
May 19, 2015 would have been Malcolm X’s 90th birthday, and fifty years after his assassination we are still dealing with the ghosts of slavery, Jim Crow, and the manifestations of institutionalized racism. While much progress was made from the Civil Rights Movement, we still have far to go. This past year brought the topics of slavery, civil rights, and racism back into the mainstream. These stories are not new for those of us who work tirelessly to chronicle these historical and contemporary narratives in an attempt to educate the public about Black history. The “New Civil Rights Movement ...
By The Time You Read This, We’Ll All Be Dead: The Failures Of History And Institutions Regarding The 2013-2015 West African Ebola Pandemic., George Denkey
Senior Theses and Projects
The 2013 – 2015 Ebola pandemic had a devastating impact on the countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia, with a few regional and global sparks as a result of the 25,178 cases and 10,445 deaths that the epidemic has so far brought upon the three most affected nations by April First 2015. The epidemic has collapsed healthcare systems, economies, and the very social fabric of life within the subregion itself. In the light of this tragic epidemic, one question stands out above all, “How and why did this happen?” The medical literature around Ebola is sound and ...
Oil Wealth, Resource Curse And Development: Any Lessons For Ghana?, 2015 Eastern Illinois University
Oil Wealth, Resource Curse And Development: Any Lessons For Ghana?, Felix Kumah-Abiwu, Edward Brenya, James Agbodzakey
Ghana’s new status as an oil-producing country has invigorated the scholarly debate on the resource curse theory, which assumes that countries with vast natural resource wealth like oil, diamond and gold are likely to experience slow economic growth and development as compared to countries with scarce natural resources. Although the development literature is well endowed with cases of countries with huge natural resources that have experienced slow economic growth, the literature is also clear on few other countries with enormous natural resources that continue to experience high economic growth due to strong political institutions and democratic practices. Norway and ...
Citizenship Without Borders: Understanding Empathy And Domestic Direct Service As Powerful Approaches To Making Global Connections That Matter, Courtney Tielking
University Honors Program Theses
By unraveling a case study on Georgia Southern University's Alternative Break program, this research examines the relationship between empathy and globalization. Alternative Breaks are week-long trips, during University holidays, which facilitate and encourage direct service, immersion in a specific social issue, and guided reflection sessions. Four active Alternative Break participants and advisors were interviewed to outline accurately and depict their experience with culture-based Alternative Break trips. Their stories demonstrate an alternative to traveling abroad in order to achieve a sense of global citizenship. The research suggests that through empathy and direct service, one can become a global citizen without ...

Cfp - Pan-African/Palestinian Solidarities, 2014 Kennesaw State University
Cfp - Pan-African/Palestinian Solidarities
This collection seeks to assemble and make visible the historical and contemporary voices of bi-directional solidarity between Palestine and the Pan-African world. Shared struggles against colonialism, racism, apartheid, settler violence, historical erasure, patriarchy, class exploitation, and other forms of oppression link Pan-African and Palestinian communities throughout all periods of their often intertwined and overlapping histories. This is particularly true in the period of anti-colonial independence struggles, especially following the 1967 war, and in the global BDS movement today. But it is also continuous throughout the twentieth century, and especially since the Nakba in 1948. Because much of this history is ...
Into The Red: A Look Into The Reasons Why Refugees Decide To Flee, Settle Or Migrate To And From Morocco, 2014 University of San Francisco
Into The Red: A Look Into The Reasons Why Refugees Decide To Flee, Settle Or Migrate To And From Morocco, Fadeelah E. Holivay
This research paper explores some of the main reasons why refugees and asylum seekers, particularly from sub-Saharan African countries, embark on a journey and decide to settle, flee or migrate to and from Morocco. Because of this phenomenon, Morocco has seen a 96% increase of refugees migrating to the borders of Morocco each year for the past three years. Many say that this astonishing increase of migrants choosing Morocco is due to such factors as: wars breaking out regionally across central African and Middle Eastern countries causing them to flee; Morocco being a culturaly diverse francophone country whose laws and ...
The Left-To-Die Boat: Review 2, 2014 Swinburne University, Inside Story
The Left-To-Die Boat: Review 2, Peter Mares
In March 2011 an inflatable boat carrying 72 asylum seekers from sub-Saharan Africa set out from the coast of Libya hoping to reach the Italian island of Lampedusa. As one Italian official commented, sailing from Libya towards Italy should have been ‘a bit like doing a slalom between military ships’. Yet as, out of fuel, supplies of food and water dwindled to nothing and the people on board began to get sick and die, the boat continued to drift and no help came. Eventually it floated all the way back to the Libyan coast. Of the 50 men, 20 women ...
The Left-To-Die Boat: Review 1, 2014 BBC Radio Documentaries Unit
The Left-To-Die Boat: Review 1, Simon Elmes
The tale of the African asylum-seekers who in 2011 set sail in a fragile inflatable from revolution-torn Libya in the hope of reaching the Italian island of Lampedusa and safety, is a phenomenal one. Seventy-two men and women set sail; just eleven survived the two-week-long ordeal, which only ended when the boat was washed back on the Libyan shore. How on earth to tell a story that was all in the past, recollected in tranquillity, and still keep it sharp, painful, dramatic and present?
The trouble with big, long programs is that, to stay sharp, they constantly have to find ...

Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care In Mahabo, Madagascar, 2014 Washington University in St Louis
Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care In Mahabo, Madagascar, Mackenzie Findlay
Undergraduate Research Symposium Posters & Abstracts
In rural Madagascar, women seeking reproductive care may have the option of seeking out their local traditional birth attendant (TBA) or going to a biomedical Western clinic. In those cases in which there is a choice, our understandings of how women make their choice is limited. By understanding local women’s preferences for reproductive health care, this research seeks to not “[put] oneself in her place” and make recommendations from that standpoint, but rather to understand the “variety of responses to the practices that shape their lives” (Narayan 419). There is a finite amount of resources in the world and ...
