Happy The People: The Use Of Classical Literature In John Dickinson's Letters From A Farmer In Pennsylvania, Rachel E. Wiedman 2020 St. Ambrose University

Happy The People: The Use Of Classical Literature In John Dickinson's Letters From A Farmer In Pennsylvania, Rachel E. Wiedman

The Macksey Journal

John Dickinson is well noted as an influential writer of the American Revolution, particularly in his series of twelve letters known as the Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania. While previous scholarship has noted the significant effect these widely circulated letters had upon the colonies and has further explored the purpose for the pseudonym “Farmer,” it has overlooked one major feature of the writings: the inclusion of a Latin quotation at the end of each letter, pulled from various Roman authors. Though the classics at that time were often employed in pamphlet writing to invoke a sense of kinship with ...


Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley 2020 Liberty University

Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley

Montview Liberty University Journal of Undergraduate Research

This research addresses Le Livre de la Cité des Dames—translated into English as The Book of the City of Ladies—as an outstanding work of proto-feminist literature from 1405. It is written by a woman, in defense of women. Christine de Pizan plays the central character in her own work, in which she combats misogyny with a revised account of history. She battles prevalent ideals of courtly love and gender inequality as things that are not merely repulsive or immoral, but wholly heretical. Rather than focusing on historical accuracy, de Pizan uses the literary power of her narrative to ...

Euripides' 'Andromache' And Athenian Hegemonic Ideology, Alexandra H. Dawson 2020 The Univeristy of Western Ontario

Euripides' 'Andromache' And Athenian Hegemonic Ideology, Alexandra H. Dawson

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Scholarship on the political character of Athenian tragedy has increasingly turned its attention to the relationship between tragedy and empire. In Athenian panegyric, Athens’ rule is frequently portrayed as hegemonic, although historiographical sources reveal inconsistencies between the idealized image of the city and the historical realities of empire. Several recent approaches have concentrated especially on tragedies that feature an Athenian setting or character in the dramatic action as a means to explore the ways in which the plays engage with Athenian ideas on power and domination. In response, the primary aim of this analysis is an understanding of the way ...


“The Symmetrical Battle” Extended: Old Norse Fránn And Other Symmetry In Norse-Germanic Dragon Lore, Julian A. Emole 2020 University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

“The Symmetrical Battle” Extended: Old Norse Fránn And Other Symmetry In Norse-Germanic Dragon Lore, Julian A. Emole

The Macksey Journal

Previous endeavors to identify a common origin of the dragon-slayer myth (and its many derivatives) in the Indo-European language family have produced mixed results, due in part to the ubiquity of dragon lore. Calvert Watkins’s ambitious project (How to Kill a Dragon, 1995) to reconstruct a poetic formula with PIE *gwhen- (‘to smite, slay’) has garnered both praise and criticism (see, e.g., Daniel Ogden 2013). Christine Rauer (Beowulf and the Dragon, 2000) has demonstrated that Beowulf was influenced by the Latin hagiographic tradition but finds that “the imagery which seems to be so typical for the ...


The History Of Early Modern Medicine In New Spain, El Primero Sueño, And Poet Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz, Daniel Hughes 2020 Hunter College of the City University of New York

The History Of Early Modern Medicine In New Spain, El Primero Sueño, And Poet Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz, Daniel Hughes

Grand Valley Journal of History

This essay analyzes poetry and other writing by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz in the context of themes from Greco-Roman antiquity and the historical development of medicine in seventeenth century New Spain, now Mexico. Sor Juana’s El Primero Sueño, a Spanish language poetic silva, exhibits copious references to writers from classical antiquity, including Aristotle and Ovid. Establishing a context steeped in ideas from Greco-Roman antiquity, Sor Juana invokes the medical and philosophical legacy of foundational physician Galen of Pergamon. She also expands upon his ideas into the human anatomical realm, reflecting the increased early modern prominence of the ...


Does The Painter Know The Bridle And Bit?: Monastic Art And Literature As Sources For The History Of Maritime Technology, 750-1200, Angus C.B. Warren 2020 Middlebury College

Does The Painter Know The Bridle And Bit?: Monastic Art And Literature As Sources For The History Of Maritime Technology, 750-1200, Angus C.B. Warren

The Macksey Journal

Recent studies of northern European ships and shipping in the Middle Ages have treated manuscript illuminations as reliable sources of technical information concerning vessel construction. On the strength of apparent correlation between the fragmentary archaeological record and the much fuller corpus of illustrations, Dr. Joe Flatman has argued that monastic artists of the tenth through thirteenth centuries interacted closely with ships and understood their form and function. However, the illuminations do not support this view: instead, there is strong evidence that manuscript painters derived their maritime compositions from imitation of earlier illustrations. Similarly, monastic literature exhibits no familiarity with either ...


The Gift In The Iliad, Tyler Jordan 2020 The University of Western Ontario

The Gift In The Iliad, Tyler Jordan

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In this thesis I challenge the dominant conception of gift giving in the Iliad. In Chapter 1 I show that the textual evidence does not support the idea that different categories of gift giving are denoted by word choice. In Chapter 2, I show that modern theories are not able to explain perfectly the instances of gift giving in the Iliad. Furthermore, I show that the use or avoidance of gift-terms in the poem can carry meaning. In Chapter 3, I take the conclusions from the previous two chapters and apply them to a focused analysis of the exchange between ...

The Fabric Of Gifts: Culture And Politics Of Giving And Exchange In Archaic Greece, Beate Wagner-Hasel 2020 Leibniz University of Hannover

The Fabric Of Gifts: Culture And Politics Of Giving And Exchange In Archaic Greece, Beate Wagner-Hasel

Zea E-Books

When the Greek leader Agamemnon took for himself the woman awarded to Achilles as his spoils of battle, the warrior’s resulting anger and outrage nearly cost his side the war. Beyond the woman herself was what she symbolised — a matter of esteem rather than material value. In Archaic Greece the practices of gift giving existed alongside an economy of market relations. The value of gifts and the meanings of exchange in ancient societies are fundamental to the debates of 19th-century economists, to Marcel Mauss’s famous Essai sur le don (1923-4), and to the definition of experiential value by ...

Cloud Technologies In Islamic Education Institutions, Alimjon Dadamuhamedov Irgashevich

The Light of Islam

Information and Communication Technology is making use of ICT tools to store and retrieves information. It plays an important role in growing and maintaining a country’s economic growth. One of the latest technologies prevailing nowadays is cloud computing. By sharing IT services as platform-based, software-based, and infrastructure-based in the cloud, educational institutions in Uzbekistan can now out-source non-core services and better concentrate on offering students, teachers, faculty and other staff the essential tools to help them succeed. This paper looks at how Cloud Computing can be applied in the study of ICT and focuses on the role of cloud ...
