Clemence Of Barking And Valdes Of Lyon: Two Contemporaneous Examples Of Innovation In The Twelfth Century, Lisa Murray 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Clemence Of Barking And Valdes Of Lyon: Two Contemporaneous Examples Of Innovation In The Twelfth Century, Lisa Murray

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

The Twelfth Century in Western Europe was a remarkable time in history. Scholars have noted that Roman law was being revived, Aristotelian theory was being studied, Romanesque and Gothic art was being produced, scholasticism was being cultivated, and economic growth was being fostered by the rise of towns. These are just some of the developments that help give this era the well-known term “twelfth-century renaissance.” Despite the flourishing of creativity that this label suggests, there are few surviving, specific examples of innovation from this time that have been passed down to us. In AD 1175 the Benedictine nun Clemence of ...

The Black Frontier, Aparajita Nanda 2017 Santa Clara University

The Black Frontier, Aparajita Nanda

Aparajita Nanda

As a nationalistic concept, frontier refers to America's westward expansion, which was propelled in the nineteenth century by Manifest Destiny. Culturally, frontier promises even more: the creation of communities, the development of markets and states, the merging of peoples and cultures, and the promise of survival and persistence based on values of equality and democracy. Thousands of people left their homes in the East to pursue these ideals, including large communities of African Americans. However, African Americans, like many other cultural groups who moved westward, encountered struggles when they reached the new frontier. In some cases, they faced the ...


Power, Politics, And Domestic Desire In Octavia Butler’S Lilith’S Brood, Aparajita Nanda 2017 Santa Clara University

Power, Politics, And Domestic Desire In Octavia Butler’S Lilith’S Brood, Aparajita Nanda

Aparajita Nanda

Octavia Butler’s works, from her short stories and novellas to her science fiction novels, focus on themes of power, control, bondage, and a desired freedom from servitude. Power structures inevitably center on the master/slave or the captor/captive trope. Her handling of this issue takes on complex manifestations in her works, where enslavement and genetic evolution often form the core of the narrative. Within this framework, hostile and repressive regimes enforce a controlled society. Butler brings race, gender, and sexuality to the foreground of speculative fiction as she deals with complex social and political issues in all their ...


The Battle Rages On: The Psychomachia And The Faerie Queene, Book I, Aparajita Nanda 2017 Santa Clara University

The Battle Rages On: The Psychomachia And The Faerie Queene, Book I, Aparajita Nanda

Aparajita Nanda

The conception of Christian life as a pilgrimage towards God, a war against the forces of evil, has been reiterated right through the literature of late antiquity and the Middle Ages well into the Renaissance. This 'war' between Virtues and Vices, who fight for dominion over the Christian soul, possibly found its first poetic representation in Prudentius' Psychomachia. The action of this personification-allegory is fairly simple. The Christian Virtues led by Faith, despite certain initial reversals, ultimately triumph over the Vices in a series of combats and move on to build a holy city (in man's soul) in which ...


Re-Writing The Bhabhian “Mimic Man”: Akin, The Posthuman Other In Octavia Butler’S Adulthood Rites, Aparajita Nanda 2017 Santa Clara University

Re-Writing The Bhabhian “Mimic Man”: Akin, The Posthuman Other In Octavia Butler’S Adulthood Rites, Aparajita Nanda

Aparajita Nanda

Cultural critics have sought to define the term posthuman1 as primarily a condition that does away with hierarchical forms of power and control. It recognizes a transformation of the human species into a subject position that moves from an oppositional politics of segregating the human “self” from the “other” to one of acknowledging the “other” as part of the human “self.” 2 With the advent of the posthuman condition comes the need to re-define human rights in a posthuman context. Octavia Butler’s science fiction novel Adulthood Rites3 introduces us to Oankali, gene-trading aliens who travel through space. They intercept ...

Get Thee To A Nunnery: Unruly Women And Christianity In Medieval Europe, Sarah E. Wolfe 2017 East Tennessee State University

Get Thee To A Nunnery: Unruly Women And Christianity In Medieval Europe, Sarah E. Wolfe

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis will argue that the Beowulf Manuscript, which includes the poem Judith, Saxo Grammaticus’s Gesta Danorum, and the Old-Norse-Icelandic Laxdæla saga highlight and examine the tension between the female pagan characters and their Christian authors. These texts also demonstrate that Queenship grew fragile after the spread of Christianity, and women’s power waned in the shift between pre-Christian and Christian Europe.

The Anti-Black Hero: Black Masculinity Media Representation As Seen In Netflix Series Luke Cage And Fox Series Empire, Meya Joyell Hemphill

Master of Arts in American Studies Capstones

The reoccurrence of the Black Brute, the Thug, and the modern day Coon stereotypical images on current television narrowly defines Black masculinity as a monolithic experience. Young Black boys, are often unable to see themselves as those who are portrayed on television. The images they see on screen are sometimes not realistic. Unfortunately, for some young Black boys, these stereotypical images may heavily influence their own behavior. Society often criminalizes and demonizes young Black men as angry, violent, and dangerous. They pose as a supposed threat to society and are thought to be even more problematic as they age. Currently ...

Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié 2017 Université de Paris 8, Laboratoire d’études de genre et de sexualité (LEGS UMR 8238)

Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Un tableau de l'évolution de la danse de spectacle, d'une performance noble et masculine et une danse de représentation dont la théorie se partage entre la rhétorique et l'art pictural (les attributs identifiants), puis la mimesis ou danse action, à une performance autonome, ayant sa propre esthétique, au moment où cette discipline naissante minore la danse (Baumgarten, Kant). Par la suite, à partir du dix-neuvième siècle, le ballet devient un art réservé aux danseuses, une profession dévaluée aux yeux du grand public en une "charmante" parade de grâce féminine (suspecte de prostitution), ou une performance de féminité ...

Investigating Female Indigenous Leadership In Latin America, Roseangela G. Hartford 2017 Ursinus College

Investigating Female Indigenous Leadership In Latin America, Roseangela G. Hartford

Spanish Summer Fellows

This project investigates gender constructs and the complex assigned gender roles in settings of female indigenous leadership in Latin America. It examines two distinct indigenous communities, including the BriBri society in Yorkín, Costa Rica and the Maya peoples in Santa Anita, Guatemala that demonstrate the circumstantial spectrum in which women can obtain leadership roles and what actors directly influence this process. Each case study explores the fluidity of gender identities in which concepts of masculinity often guide female empowerment and liberation. With Costa Rica abolishing their military in 1948 and Guatemala experiencing a 36-year civil war (1960-1996) and a major ...

Freya Stark, John Hawley

John Hawley

Freya Madeline Stark lived for a century, and into that one hundred years she packed a life of extraordinary daring and ingenuity. "Personally I would rather feel wrong with everybody else than right all by myself," she wrote in Baghdad Sketches ( enlarged edition, 193 7); "I like people different, and agree with the man who said that the worst of the human race is the number of duplicates." Such a motto defines not only her approach to the world but also the character of the woman herself. She had no duplicate. The writings that resulted from her constant travels began ...
