Owing And Owning: Zubayr Pasha, Slavery, And Empire In Nineteenth-Century Sudan, Zachary S. Berman
All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
The Mahdist revolt provides a quandary: why did Africans revolt against imperialism in defense of slavery? This study approaches the issue by analyzing the life of Zubayr Pasha, most well-known of Sudanese slave-traders in the decades leading to the Mahdist Revolt. What I found in interviews with him, parliamentary debates over him, articles about him, and proclamations concerning him, was that the emotional responses to his story show different perspectives on the processes of overlapping imperialisms, voluntary slavery, and a host of integrated issues. To himself he was a trader, a businessman working within the letter of the law; to ...
A Review Of John Rists' "Augustine On Free Will And Predestination", 2017 Liberty University
A Review Of John Rists' "Augustine On Free Will And Predestination", Caleb H. A. Brown
Quaerens Deum: The Liberty Undergraduate Journal for Philosophy of Religion
In this paper I seek to summarize and critique John Rist’s article “Augustine on Free Will and Predestination.” Rist treats Augustine with honesty. When someone is as prominent, loved, and recognized as Augustine, when someone has as much authority as he does, the temptation to manipulate his writings into saying things which agree with one’s own position is strong. Rist resists this temptation, even concluding that Augustine holds a position on free will and predestination which Rist finds highly objectionable. But in his objections to Augustine’s position, Rist does not do justice to the whole system of ...

The Writing Of The Nation: Expressing Identity Through Congolese Literary Texts And Films, 2017 University of Richmond
The Writing Of The Nation: Expressing Identity Through Congolese Literary Texts And Films, Kasongo Mulenda Kapanga
The book is the study of literary texts and films seen as the manifestations of the Congolese consciousness and a response to the colonial discourse of denial, deletion and co-optation. It is a historical and ideological account of how writers and filmmakers have conceptualized the DRC or Zaire as a space supposedly out of a chaotic mode in need of domestication. Extending back to the precolonial times, it studies the epistemic foundations that underlie literary writings at various historical periods: an area to discover, to evangelize to exploit and to civilize. At the same time, the book addresses the problematic ...
The African American Community In Ogden, Utah: Teaching Local History Within A National Framework, 2016 Utah State University
The African American Community In Ogden, Utah: Teaching Local History Within A National Framework, Michelle Braeden
All Graduate Plan B and other Reports
Beginning in 1869, the newly built Union Station in Ogden Utah became a major terminal for the transcontinental railroad. Around that same time George Pullman began recruiting emancipated slaves as employees on his luxury railroad cars. As a result a sizeable number of African Americans began working on the railroad. Many African Americans found residence in Ogden since it was a major railroad hub. As a result a small African American neighborhood that was six blocks long and two blocks wide formed in the city. Businesses and organizations formed to support the emerging African American community within ...
Establishment Of The Nigerian Railway Corporation, 2016 ELIZADE UNIVERSITY, ILARA-MOKIN, ONDO STATE, NIGERIA
Establishment Of The Nigerian Railway Corporation, Tokunbo A. Ayoola
Journal of Retracing Africa
Making use of previously unused Colonial Office records at the National Archives in Kew, including newspaper reports, interviews with staff of the Nigerian Railway, and debates in the Federal House of Representatives, this study examines the forces that dictated the establishment of the Nigerian Railway Corporation. It argues that the primary reason why the British colonial government established the corporation was to assist foreign interests in Nigeria by distancing itself from the direct management of labor relations between the Nigerian colonial state and the militant trade unions in the Nigerian Railway and other commercially oriented government departments. By placing the ...
“God Was With Us:” Child Labor In Colonial Kenya, 1922 - 1950s, 2016 Indiana University - Bloomington
“God Was With Us:” Child Labor In Colonial Kenya, 1922 - 1950s, Samson K. Ndanyi
Journal of Retracing Africa
Contentious debates about the allowable minimum age of child laborers informed the discourse of child labor in colonial Kenya between 1922 and the 1950s. Beginning with the Harry Thuku Uprising of 1922 that instigated the discussion over labor policy concerning juvenile wage laborers and heightened the tension between the British colonial administration and African adult workers, the British government in Kenya struggled to forge coherent labor policies concerning the ages of African child workers. Frequent changes in labor laws made it easier for labor recruiters and employers to manipulate the system by recruiting younger children for work thus drawing them ...
Paris Calling: Typical And Untypical Experiences Of Latin American And African Diasporas, 2016 Humboldt University of Berlin
Paris Calling: Typical And Untypical Experiences Of Latin American And African Diasporas, Kian-Harald Karimi
CALL: Irish Journal for Culture, Arts, Literature and Language
A metropolis such as Paris may provide a common ground for the experiences of migrants coming from Africa and Latin American. The traditional capital of Latin American literatures is also considered to be the greatest agglomeration of African immigrants mostly coming from former French colonies. But a common ground does not necessarily mean that they have a great deal in common. Two novels, Café Nostalgia by the Cuban author Zoé Valdés and Black Bazar by the Congolese writer Alain Mabanckou, not only define the topographic base of their exile. They also discuss the special reasons for their residence in ...

Defying Convention: Atypical Perspectives Of Slavery In Antebellum New Orleans, 2016 Stephen F Austin State University
Defying Convention: Atypical Perspectives Of Slavery In Antebellum New Orleans, Amanda N. Carr
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
During the first half of the nineteenth century, slavery became a vital economic component upon which the success of the southern states in America rested. Cotton was king, and slavery was the peculiar institution that ensured its dominance in the domestic and international markets of America. Popular portrayals, however, often neglect the complicated dynamics of American slavery and instead depict the institution in simplistic terms. The traditional view has emphasized an image of white southerners as slaveholders and blacks as slaves. In New Orleans, the lives of three men—all of whom were tied to slavery in varying capacities—reveal ...
The Moroccan Jurist Al-Khamlīshī: Can A Woman Become A Legislator (Mujtahid)?, 2016 University of Arizona
The Moroccan Jurist Al-Khamlīshī: Can A Woman Become A Legislator (Mujtahid)?, Nayel A. Badareen 2564414
The idea of deducing legal rulings in Islamic law, or ijtihād, as well as the qualifications of the person who practices ijtihād, known as the mujtahid, has been a complex issue among Muslim ʿulamāʾ for centuries. Many Muslim ʿulamāʾ and Western scholars have maintained that the gate of ijtihād was closed. The title of mujtahid was therefore impossible to attain. The Moroccan intellectual al-Khamlīshī maintains that the strenuous conditions put forth by some of the Sunni jurists to qualify an individual to become a mujtahid actually contributed to the demise of ijtihād. These qualifications, according to al-Khamlīshī, were proven to ...

Within this month, I was able to use both primary research and secondary research to analyze the role of media in Rwanda’s society today. Interviews with head editors of the New Times and conversations with paid journalists from the New Times provided me with much of the information specific to the news outlet, while ...

The Origin And Development Of Tigrinya Language Publications (1886 - 1991) Volume One, 2016 Santa Clara University
The Origin And Development Of Tigrinya Language Publications (1886 - 1991) Volume One, Abraham Negash
Tigrinya is a Semitic language spoken in Eritrea and in the Tigray Region of Northern Ethiopia. Tigrinya is one of the nine languages in Eritrea. It was one of Eritrea's official languages (along with Arabic) during its short-lived (1941-1952) federation with Ethiopia. When Eritrea was annexed by Ethiopia in 1958, Amharic replaced Tigrinya and Arabic and was established as the official language by the imperial government. In 1991, when Eritrea became an independent country, Tigrinya regained its status as a working language.
Tigrinya has its own alphabet of 32 letters adopted from Ge'ez, a language which exists with ...

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Le présent travail porte sur une série de questions liées au transfert de formes narratives et expressives, d’un médium à un autre, d’un texte ou contexte à un autre. On suit un parcours se déclinant en deux mouvements : parti d’une discussion des théories de l’adaptation, de la réécriture, et des recherches sur la littérature orale, on en arrive à l’étude des pratiques effectives de la transposition et de l’autoadaptation. La Première Partie, « Discussions Théoriques », est consacrée à la littérature critique sur l’adaptation, y compris ses récents prolongements postmodernes et postcoloniaux. Dans la Deuxième ...
