The Storytelling Cure: Medicine And Narrative From Galen To Shahrazad And Rousseau, Ryan A. Milov-Cordoba

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Are stories healing? This dissertation introduces and explores an idea that I call “the storytelling cure.” With this term I capture a set of related notions about the healing power of stories that span literary studies, intellectual history, philosophy, and medical practice.

Concretely, this dissertation presents three extended case studies of “storytelling cures” from three different kinds of texts (case history, frame ...

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The extant literature of various fields in the social sciences have afforded us the realization that no one culture holds neither moral ground nor blueprint for how to be a culture, as our own culture is one of many, all a part of the world. Yet, because of the way our culture specifies how we are to engage and live, we tend towards the assumption that our culture has monopoly on the definition of culture. The following ...

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

"ليت الزمان يعود يوماً".. عبارة جميلة نسمعها كثيراً جدّاً في كل البلدان العربية، وهي تحمل معانٍ كثيرة، منها ما هو جميل، ومنها ما هو مُجْهِد، مُتْعب، للنفس، لما فيه من ذكريات مؤلمة.

الاغتراب هو شعور الإنسان الواعي بحاجته إلى وطن، مع وجوده في الوطن الذي ولد فيه ونشأ على حبه، وذلك لأن الوطن هذا يكون قد تغير كثيراً بحيث لم يعد بالإمكان الارتياح إليه. وفي العادة، ينتج الاغتراب هذا حين يتحول الوطن مرتعاً لفكر ظلامي غاشم، أو حقلا ينمو الجهل فيه ويتكاثر كالطحالب التي تتسلق جدارن البيوت العتيقة. أما الغربة فهي احساس الإنسان بالحنين ...

Decolonizing Female Archetypes: Creating An Oppositional Consciousness In Contemporary Chicana And Iraqi Women’S Fiction, Semah Salih Hussein

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In dominant imperialist discourses, women, such as Iraqi women and Chicanas, have been marginalized in political, social and economic structures and have been manipulated to maintain imperialist exploitation and processes. They have been frozen within certain archetypal configurations. Iraqi women have been misrepresented as victims of their culture and traditions, and Chicanas have been represented in derogatory terms or excluded from mainstream hierarchies of representation. This study examines some counternarratives and oppositional subjectivities/ consciousnesses provided by Iraqi and Chicana women writers through their utilization of the legacy of a number of fictional and historical female figures. The primary texts analyzed ...

Before getting to the heart of the matter, let us first make an empirical observation: in Arab societies, the recurrence of proverbial statements both at the level of oral communication and at the level of written texts is a reality that is evident. It imposes itself on it. Proverbs occupy a prominent place in Arab societies. For a very long time, the Arabs have manifested their taste for this type of concise, very expressive and full of teachings speech.
