Active Tectonics And Ancient Complex Cultures, Eric R. Force 2014 SelectedWorks

Active Tectonics And Ancient Complex Cultures, Eric R. Force

Eric R Force

The astoundingly close spatial relationship of active tectonic boundaries with the originating sites of the most complex ancient cultures suggests a closer look at possible dynamics. Five lines of evidence suggest that the relationship was cultural, i.e. tectonic cultures were more accepting of change, more resilient, and remarkably tenacious, leading toward a sort of cultural athleticism. Conversely, tectonically quiescent cultures were more static.

“The Mysterious Stranger”: Address To New Members Of Phi Beta Kappa (Theta Of Minnesota), April 23, 2013, Scott Richardson 2014 College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University

“The Mysterious Stranger”: Address To New Members Of Phi Beta Kappa (Theta Of Minnesota), April 23, 2013, Scott Richardson

Headwaters: The Faculty Journal of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University

I used to know everything. Then I went to college. As I was about to enter college, I was pretty sure I had the world figured out. I didn’t need and certainly didn’t want my professors to do anything but reconfirm my beliefs, values, and vision of the world. I was in for a real surprise. There’s nothing innocent or comforting about a liberal arts education.

Hic Est Uxor Mihei: How Roman Funerary Portraits Carve The Ideal Freedwoman, Nora Kassner 2014 Macalester College

Hic Est Uxor Mihei: How Roman Funerary Portraits Carve The Ideal Freedwoman, Nora Kassner

Classics Honors Projects

This paper examines the depiction of Roman freedwomen (former slaves) in thirty-five late Republican and Augustan funerary portraits. Extant portraits utilize a complex visual and written vocabulary to reveal a wide variety of views of freedwomen’s status and agency. This paper relies upon analyses of the cultural climates of the late Republican and Augustan period, careful interrogation of the material evidence through the lens of both post-structuralist and affective theory, and the use of case studies. Ultimately, it argues that funerary portraits create diverse representations of the ideal freedwoman that become part of an ongoing cultural dialogue concerning the ...


Ethnicity, Nomima, And Identity: A Study Of The Multi-Ethnic Cities Of Himera And Gela, Daniel Plekhov 2014 Dickinson College

Ethnicity, Nomima, And Identity: A Study Of The Multi-Ethnic Cities Of Himera And Gela, Daniel Plekhov

Honors Theses By Year

I present a comprehensive analysis of the material and literary evidence from the cities of Gela and Himera. I leave out Acragas from this discussion for the sake of temporal consistency, as Acragas was founded about a century after both Himera and Gela. While ethnic identity was no doubt important in all Hellenic cities, the multi-ethnic designation Thucydides gives for these two cites makes it likely that issues of ethnicity will be more visible here and thus easier to extricate from the historical record. I address the role ethnicity played in the foundation and development of these two cities, specifically ...

Eros The Man, Eros The Woman: Conflicting Identities And Gender Construction In The Catullan Corpus, Rebecca F. Boylan 2014 Macalester College

Eros The Man, Eros The Woman: Conflicting Identities And Gender Construction In The Catullan Corpus, Rebecca F. Boylan

Classics Honors Projects

The Catullan corpus is filled with widely varying and often incompatible constructions of gender. These contradictions reveal latent tensions between the poet’s masculine persona and personal pleasure, the latter of which often results in feminine modes of expression. Catullus’ poetic voice frequently transgresses traditional Roman boundaries between gender spheres, emphasizing the nebulous nature of ancient sexuality. Through an analysis of the gendered paradigms that inform the Catullan corpus, this paper examines these tensions between traditional masculine and feminine roles and ways in which these roles are reversed, especially in Catullus’ relationship with Lesbia. This paper analyzes Sapphic influences in ...

Negotiating Julio-Claudian Memory: The Vespasianic Building Program And The Representation Of Imperial Power In Ancient Rome, Joseph V. Frankl 2014 Macalester College

Negotiating Julio-Claudian Memory: The Vespasianic Building Program And The Representation Of Imperial Power In Ancient Rome, Joseph V. Frankl

Classics Honors Projects

In 70 C.E., the general Vespasian became the emperor of the Roman world. His accession marked the end of a year-long civil war and the beginning of the second imperial dynasty. The legitimacy of his rule depended on addressing the memory of his predecessors, the Julio-Claudian dynasty. This paper examines expressions of Vespasian’s relationship with the Julio-Claudians as evident in the emperor’s public buildings in Rome. The form, location, and symbolism of five structures that constituted Vespasian’s building program will be considered. These buildings utilized several modes for interacting with the past including: condemning some Julio-Claudian ...


Grief In The Iliad, Patrick R. Stickley 2014 East Tennessee State University

Grief In The Iliad, Patrick R. Stickley

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This paper addresses the causes and effects of grief within Homer's Iliad. In addition, this paper argues that error, both committed and suffered, is the primary cause of grief, and that grief is particularly transformative in regard to Achilles, both in his motivations and his physicality.


Killing Julian: The Death Of An Emperor And The Religious History Of The Later Roman Empire, Benjamin James Rogaczewski 2014 University of Wisconsin Milwaukee

Killing Julian: The Death Of An Emperor And The Religious History Of The Later Roman Empire, Benjamin James Rogaczewski

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis addresses an intriguing question concerning the death of emperor Julian, known throughout history as "the Apostate." Although Julian ruled for less than two years, his reign and death were the center of debate for centuries. Ancient writers composed different death narratives for the last "pagan" emperor, elaborating upon certain details in the narratives and adding portions, probably fictionalized, of the story where they thought necessary. It is my view that these different death narratives were used as literary loci to discuss the growing power of the church and the relations between church and state. Analysis of these narratives ...

Reading Through Don Quixote, Christopher Mark 2014 Olin College of Engineering

Reading Through Don Quixote, Christopher Mark

2014 AHS Capstone Projects

Throughout the semester I read through the classical Spanish novel Don Quixote in both English and Spanish. The novel is a classic for many reasons, most notably it is the first major example of character development throughout a work of literature. The historical context of Don Quixote in 15th and 16th century Spain adds to the intricacies of the novel; the themes, issues, and commentary throughout the novel have political relevance in terms of Miguel Cervantes’ view of the state of his country as well as broader opinions of the Spanish people. As I read through the novel, I explored ...
