Intercultural Communication Within A Multigenerational Afghan Family, Sarah Sultan 2016 University of Rhode Island

Intercultural Communication Within A Multigenerational Afghan Family, Sarah Sultan

Senior Honors Projects

“If you were in Afghanistan would you have to wear a hijab?” After being asked that question all of my life, I focused my entire honor’s project on bringing light to the misconceptions regarding Afghanistan and its people. I do this through extensive research into a diaspora of an Afghan families and the creation of an instructional video. . There are many ways in which Afghanistan and the United States are similar, but also different, which is also showcased by Afghans throughout the video. Afghan members from different generations have shared their perspective, experiences, and lifestyles and explained how Afghanistan ...

The Genesis Of The Sonderweg, Annie Everett 2016 University of Tennessee

The Genesis Of The Sonderweg, Annie Everett

International Social Science Review

The precarious legacy of National Socialism has informed much, if not all, of German historiography in the decades since Fritz Fischer first published German War Aims in the First World War in 1961. Sonderweg historiography (scholarship that explores the notion that Germany has followed a separate path to modernity) attempts to anchor the field with two historical assumptions: that an understanding of the greater German past necessitates an inherently negative diagnosis of German ills, and that this diagnosis is a product of and hinges on the emergence of National Socialism in Germany. But what if we excluded National Socialism from ...


French Class Level 2:"Migrants In France" Project, Juli A. Douglass-Gillespie 2016 Northwestern Local Schools

French Class Level 2:"Migrants In France" Project, Juli A. Douglass-Gillespie

Migration in Global Context Symposium

Being quite fed up with the disconnect between boring, abstract, and out of date so-called “units” in my French textbooks and real life, I decided to attempt to invent my own year-long “unit” based upon the ideas of migrants or immigrants who had come to France. From the beginning of the year I informed my students that everything we studied and explored throughout the year would help us create together and present to a small audience a final project in the spring in the form of a play, which they would write, me helping with the French. Since my student ...

Literarische Zensur Als Meinungsbildung: Zensur In Der Bundesrepublik Und Die Entwicklung Einer Neuen Wahrnehmung Der Ehemaligen Ddr, Lauren M. Davidson 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Literarische Zensur Als Meinungsbildung: Zensur In Der Bundesrepublik Und Die Entwicklung Einer Neuen Wahrnehmung Der Ehemaligen Ddr, Lauren M. Davidson

Senior Theses and Projects

Germany has a long history of literary censorship. Following the Second World War and the division of Germany into the Federal Republic of Germany in the West and the German Democratic Republic in the East, both states simultaneously decried censorship in their constitutions and proceeded to unofficially censor literature. A vast amount of research and attention has focused on the censorship program of the East German Ministry for Culture. Little attention, however, has been given to censorship in West Germany, despite its critical role in the development of a new cultural identity and perception of the former East Germany. This ...


Collecting An Empire: The Napoleonic Louvre And The Cabinet Of Curiosities In Catherine Wilmot’S An Irish Peer On The Continent, Pamela Buck 2016 Sacred Heart University

Collecting An Empire: The Napoleonic Louvre And The Cabinet Of Curiosities In Catherine Wilmot’S An Irish Peer On The Continent, Pamela Buck

Pamela Buck

This essay uses Anglo-Irish writer Catherine Wilmot's travel journal An Irish Peer on the Continent of 1801–3 to examine the relationship between collecting and empire in the Napoleonic period. Wilmot's journal shows how the Louvre museum, a collection of art objects taken from conquered countries, functions as a large-scale cabinet of curiosities that enabled Napoleon to legitimate his empire. She constructs a literary cabinet in her journal that allows her to take part in the practice of collecting and critique Napoleon's method of imperial acquisition. She further supports British collectors who use their cabinets to compete ...

A Passage From Brooklyn To Ithaca: The Sea, The City And The Body In The Poetics Of Walt Whitman And C. P. Cavafy, Michael P. Skafidas 2016 Graduate Center, City University of New York

A Passage From Brooklyn To Ithaca: The Sea, The City And The Body In The Poetics Of Walt Whitman And C. P. Cavafy, Michael P. Skafidas

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This treatise is the first extensive comparative study of Walt Whitman and C. P. Cavafy. Despite the abundant scholarship dealing with the work and life of each, until now no critic has put the two poets together. Whitman’s poetry celebrates birth, youth, the self and the world as seen for the first time, while Cavafy’s diverts from the active present to resurrect a world whose key, in Eliot’s terms, is memory. Yet, I see the two poets conversing in the crossroads of the fin de siècle; the American Whitman and the Greek Cavafy embody the antithesis of ...


Factors Associated With Harm Reduction Model Use Among Substance Abuse Counselors, Tiffany Madden 2016 Walden University

Factors Associated With Harm Reduction Model Use Among Substance Abuse Counselors, Tiffany Madden

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Drug overdose death rates in the United States have more than tripled since 1990 with more than 36,000 dying in 2008. In 2007 the estimated cost of drug use to U.S. society due to lost productivity, increased health care, and criminal justice costs was over $193 billion. Previous researchers have found that harm reduction is a viable treatment option within the field of addiction. The guiding premise in the harm reduction approach is that all people can achieve improved psychological and physiological health even if they are unable to be substance-free. However, there remains an important gap in ...
