What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz 2015 Drexel University

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract: Advances in technology allow for new modes of access to both secular and religious information. Historically, some religious groups seem to have been eager to acknowledge technological developments, while others have done so reluctantly. Nevertheless, the sustainability of a religious tradition depends on the ability of its practitioners to continually access information in an evolving world. Modern technology has occasioned such innovations as online religious communities and the wide availability of sacred texts and exegeses, to the extent that a person can practice a religion using entirely online tools—without ever setting foot in a physical place of worship ...


Return To Holy Hill: Louisiana College, Academic Freedom, And The Southern Baptist Convention's Conservative Resurgence, 1995-2006, Joseph L. Odenwald 2015 The University of Southern Mississippi

Return To Holy Hill: Louisiana College, Academic Freedom, And The Southern Baptist Convention's Conservative Resurgence, 1995-2006, Joseph L. Odenwald

Dissertations

This study examines a period in the history of Louisiana College in which the college’s sponsoring organization, the Louisiana Baptist Convention, a Southern Baptist affiliate, began to insist that professors at the college teach only in accordance with the official views of the Southern Baptist Convention. The literature is replete with studies on the movement affecting the Southern Baptist seminaries, but little has been written about the impact of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Conservative Resurgence on the colleges.

As such, this study explores the changes that were made to the academic freedom and governance policies as the trustees ...


The Soldier And The Cigarette: 1918-1986, Joel Richard Bius 2015 University of Southern Mississippi

The Soldier And The Cigarette: 1918-1986, Joel Richard Bius

Dissertations

The military-industrial complex has been the topic of intense conversation among historians since President Dwight Eisenhower first gave the phrase life in January 1961. The term typically conjures up images of massive weapons procurement programs, but it also ironically involved one of the world’s most highly-engineered consumer products, the manufactured cigarette. “The Soldier and the Cigarette: 1918–1986” describes the unique, often comfortable, yet sometimes controversial relationships among the military, the cigarette industry, and tobaccoland politicians. The dissertation argues that the federal government’s first cigarette warning in 1964 changed a relationship between soldiers and cigarettes that the Army ...

“Against The Ebony Of Her Skin”: The Impact Of Harlem Renaissance Blues Culture And Literature On The Development Of Womanism, Maia Y. Rodriguez 2015 Pepperdine University

“Against The Ebony Of Her Skin”: The Impact Of Harlem Renaissance Blues Culture And Literature On The Development Of Womanism, Maia Y. Rodriguez

Undergraduate Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

This paper will investigate the ways in which the music and writers spurred by the explosion of African American culture that was the Harlem Renaissance were responsible for propagating the rhetoric and fresh representations of African American womanhood that would later be incorporated into the theoretical framework of black feminism championed by critics like bell hooks and brought into fruition as the recognizable school of womanism by Alice Walker. I will argue, using the literature of “proto-feminist” Harlem Renaissance writers Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston as well as the literature of womanist writers like Walker, that without the Harlem ...

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De ruysscher 2015 Vrije Universiteit Brussel

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De Ruysscher

Dave De ruysscher

The Antwerp example demonstrates that in the early modern period entity shielding for partnerships existed in some form by law, and that it was devised in doctrine and the practice of courts rather than in legislation. The affectation of assets for the business venture that did not entail limited liability nonetheless allowed for some separation of personal from partnership-related assets. This innovation, which was devised in doctrine in the early 1600s, was important in a mercantile context in which partnerships with open goals and with active partners or directors engaged in diverse business activities. Yet, according to an older rule ...

Researching Long Island History During The Ceta Program: How I Became An Archivist, Burt Altman

Library Faculty Publications

Introduction by John A. Strong Professor Emeritus, Long Island University:

About twenty years ago when I was working with Gaynell Stone on the Suffolk County Archaeological Association series on Long Island Indians she sent me to the Nassau County Parks facility at Sands Point to look at a collection of bibliographic cards that were stored there. Dan Kaplan, a park staff member, ushered me to a big empty library area, seated me at a long table, and brought me several long rectangular boxes filled with hundreds of three by five index cards with writing on both sides. I was amazed ...

From Okoboji To Mankato: Viewing Changes To The Minnesota Borderlands Region’S Dakota-Settler Relations Through Women’S Captivity Narratives, Jessica A. Helmers 2015 Minnesota State University - Mankato

From Okoboji To Mankato: Viewing Changes To The Minnesota Borderlands Region’S Dakota-Settler Relations Through Women’S Captivity Narratives, Jessica A. Helmers

Jessica A Helmers

The research for this paper compares captivity narratives by Abigail Gardner of the Spirit Lake attacks in 1857 with varying viewpoints recounting the United States-Dakota War of 1862 by Mary Schwandt, Nancy McClure, Mary Renville, and Sarah Wakefield. Spanning a publication period of nearly thirty years, these women’s captivity experiences reflected changing attitudes towards racial identity, social organization, and land rights of Dakotas during a period of great change in the Minnesota region between 1857 and 1862.

It is because of the popularity of the Indian captivity narrative, the first major genre of American literature, that the authors’ gendered ...
