Grabbing Back: An Analysis Of Womanism And Cinematic Representation In These Hands, 2018 University of Minnesota, Morris
Grabbing Back: An Analysis Of Womanism And Cinematic Representation In These Hands, Taija Walker
Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal
Flora M’mbugu-Schelling’s 1992 documentary These Hands is a 45-minute film depicting the crushing and processing of rocks by women working at a site in Tanzania. Unlike a typical documentary, there are no interviews conducted nor narrator to provide context for the viewer, so the film is heavily reliant on visuals and diegetic sound in conveying information and themes to the audience. Although These Hands, lacking in plot and narration, seems like a simple film with little substance, it is clear that there is an underlying agenda and an extremely powerful message, both being womanist in nature, that M ...

Les Nouveaux Territoires De L’Istoriographie. Se Dessiner À Partir D’Une Faille., Alain Agnessan
La fiction –non plus uniquement le roman –istorique ou istoriographique, entend investir, par le truchement d'une subjectivité qui se sait complexe et hétérogène, les failles d'un présent qui demeure aussi, sinon beaucoup plus, fuligineux que le passé. Parce que l'istor, ce témoin et cet agent oculaire, ramène au voir, aux politiques du visible, je bifurquerai contrairement à Emmanuel Bouju, vers un ailleurs du domaine littéraire : la bande dessinée. L'exercice permettra de déceler les stratégies grâce auxquelles un istor graphique donne de voir son soi immobilisé et fragmenté dans les failles d'un présent chaotique et continument ...
The Resisters: Contemporary Ethiopia Through A Feminist Lens, 2017 The University of San Francisco
The Resisters: Contemporary Ethiopia Through A Feminist Lens, Eldana Mathias Temesgen
Based on the recent mass protests in Ethiopia, there is a strong indication that the Oromo people of Ethiopia, who are at the forefront of these protests, have been placed in a position of marginal importance, influence and power in their society. Due to the power and agency wielded by the government, some ethnic groups in Ethiopia, including the Oromo ethnic group, claim to be underrepresented on a political, economic, and social scale, which has led to conflict.
The nuances of ethnic based conflict, such as the situation in Ethiopia, have been tackled through several disciplines and examined through different ...
Marching Morally Towards Equality: Perspective Of Bishop Richard Allen, 2017 Cleveland State University
Marching Morally Towards Equality: Perspective Of Bishop Richard Allen, Ernest M. Oleksy
The Downtown Review
The African American's struggle for equality is fraught with contributions from men and women of various ilk. Amongst these early abolitionists were naturalist Benjamin Banneker, freeman orator Frederick Douglass, and Bishop Richard Allen, who is the focus of this paper. Through an analysis of primary and secondary sources, the author takes on the persona of the late Bishop speaking to a community of his fellow African Americans as he comments on timely events and characters and advises the listeners on a reasonable course of action.
The Integration Of Traditional And Modern Medicine In Uganda, 2017 Iowa State University
The Integration Of Traditional And Modern Medicine In Uganda, Rylee Mcdermott
Honors Projects and Posters
The medicinal practices around the world are inconsistent in treatment, especially in developing countries, such as Uganda. In the district of Kamuli, Uganda, stark differences in treatment exist from one health center and hospital to another, integrating traditional medical practices (TM), often herbal, and modern, Westernized practices (WM). The purpose of this study was to compile commonly used TM used in Uganda, compare how they are integrated or replacements for WM, and analyze the benefits and drawbacks of these practices towards the safety and health of Ugandan patients. A systematic review of peer-reviewed articles on a PubMed and Google Scholar ...

Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, 2017 Louisiana State University
Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, Sylviane Ngandu-Kalenga Greensword
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Black women wearing fabulous braids are a striking feature of the Afro-diasporic cultural landscape. However, the braiders and salon owners who enable this aesthetic engineering are seldom acknowledged. This dissertation investigates the experience and role of Caribbean and West and Central African women in the hair braiding industry, a rapidly growing business in the U.S. I address the complexity of these women’s multiple social roles and the multiple consciousness (King, 1988) associated with their demographic characteristics (color, ethnicity, gender, nationality, and immigrant status). The commonalities between the braiders and their mostly African American customers contrast vividly with their ...
Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, 2017 Morehouse College
Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, Aaron Carter-Enyi
Africana Digital Ethnography Project
Approximately 60% of the world’s languages are tonal, wherein alterations of pitch change the meaning of words. Two-syllable words in Yorùbá can have as many as five separate meanings, and single- syllable words in Mandarin up to four. Among tone-language speakers, acute pitch sensitivity is developed at an early age as part of language acquisition. The result is that speakers of tone languages are generally more sensitive to pitch than stress-language speakers. For speakers of stress languages, it is difficult to conceive of this other aurality, in which sound is perceived in a different way. But music holds the ...

Weaving Identity: Stories And Manifestations Of Amazigh Carpet Weavers In The Moroccan Village Of Tarmilat, 2017 SIT Graduate Institute
Weaving Identity: Stories And Manifestations Of Amazigh Carpet Weavers In The Moroccan Village Of Tarmilat, Alessandra Roggero
Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection
It is in the small villages of Morocco, scattered across the North in the Rif, to the South in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, and in between, where the majority of Morocco’s celebrated and beloved Amazigh carpets are made. Their power and popularity can be attributed to the indigenous female artists who have been crafting these physical tokens of memory, protection, and Amazigh identity, for millenniums. In an attempt to connect the trade of carpet weaving in Morocco back to these women and their families, this research project will explore their narratives, and the social and spatial implications of their craft ...
A Fight Over Souls: Documentary Films On The Rwandan Genocide With A Christian Theme, 2017 Linnaeus University
A Fight Over Souls: Documentary Films On The Rwandan Genocide With A Christian Theme, Tommy Gustafsson
Journal of Religion & Film
The 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda have spawned over 150 feature films and feature-length documentaries, making it into the second most audio-visually recreated genocide after the Holocaust. Within this large body of historical films a subgenre have emerged with a distinctive Christian theme. This article explores these Christian themed documentary films about the Rwandan genocide and positions them within a film historical perspective as well as analyzes and contextualizes them as a subgenre of films about the Rwandan genocide within films about genocide in general. Of note are how memory and historiography are used, and the links between ...
