Silence: A Movie Review, Joshua Matthews 2017 Dordt College

Silence: A Movie Review, Joshua Matthews

Faculty Work: Comprehensive List

"Scorsese has made his most 'Christian' movie here—at least, overtly Christian. Silence says in a hundred creative ways that God is Not Dead, although not, thankfully, in the title."

A Pathway To Child Sex Trafficking In Prostitution: The Impact Of Strain And Risk-Inflating Responses, Joan A. Reid 2017 University of South Florida

A Pathway To Child Sex Trafficking In Prostitution: The Impact Of Strain And Risk-Inflating Responses, Joan A. Reid

Joan A Reid, Ph.D.

Victims of child sex trafficking in prostitution in the United States are often overlooked, misidentified, and among the most underserved type of child victim of crime. The majority of previous research on child sex trafficking has been conducted without a theoretical framework or reliable sampling methods. In this study, a schematic composed of a series of stepping-stones from childhood abuse to prostitution, which has been described by gendered pathways researchers, served as a sensitizing template for the study's development of a strain-reactive pathway into child sex trafficking. Agnew's general strain theory provided the primary theoretical basis for the ...

Precolumbian Textiles In The Ethnological Museum In Berlin, Lena Bjerregaard, Torben Huss 2017 University of Copenhagen

Precolumbian Textiles In The Ethnological Museum In Berlin, Lena Bjerregaard, Torben Huss

Zea E-Books

The Ethnological Museum in Berlin, Germany, houses Europe’s largest collection of PreColumbian textiles—around 9000 well-preserved examples.
