The Four Days That Saved Israel: The Battle Of The Golan Heights, Connor L. McLeod 2017 Michigan State University

The Four Days That Saved Israel: The Battle Of The Golan Heights, Connor L. Mcleod

Connor McLeod


The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were taken by surprise when Egypt and Syria attacked Israel on Yom Kippur, 6 October 1973. Only two IDF brigades of a few thousand men stood between 60,000 Syrian soldiers and the Israeli heartland. The Israelis fought almost to the point of annihilation until reinforcements arrived and counterattacked into Syria, shifting momentum in Israel’s favor. The Israeli troops used their superior training and equipment to overcome tactical surprise and inferior numbers to hold the line and prevent Israel from being destroyed.

Who Really Said What? Mobile Historical Situated Documentary As Liminal Learning Space, Owen Gottlieb 2016 Rochester Institute of Technology

Who Really Said What? Mobile Historical Situated Documentary As Liminal Learning Space, Owen Gottlieb

Articles

This article explores the complexities and affordances of historical representation that arose in the process of designing a mobile augmented reality video game for teaching history. The process suggests opportunities to push the historical documentary form in new ways. Specifically, the article addresses the shifting liminal space between historical fiction narrative, and historical interactive documentary narrative. What happens when primary sources, available for examination are placed inside of a historically inspired narrative, one that hews closely to the events, but creates drama through dialogues between player and historical figure? In this relatively new field of interactive historical situated documentary, how ...


Carl Gustav Tessin And Culinary Considerations, Charlotte Bellamy 2016 European University Institute

Carl Gustav Tessin And Culinary Considerations, Charlotte Bellamy

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

One of the challenges of my work is to find pertinent criteria to measure the reception of some aspects of French culinary art in Sweden during the second half of the eighteen century and beyond. My study is limited to Stockholm and some countryside mansions and castles owned by nobles who were intimate with the royal Court.

I am focusing on diplomats but also on food professionals who moved to Sweden and who can be called “passeurs” or “go-between". I will focus on the Francophile Count Carl Gustaf Tessin (1695-1770) and especially his purchases when he was an “envoyé extraordinaire ...

To Humbly Serve: Joseph James Dennis And His Contributions To Clark College, Sherese LaTrelle Williams 2016 Clark Atlanta University

To Humbly Serve: Joseph James Dennis And His Contributions To Clark College, Sherese Latrelle Williams

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

The history of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) has been traditionally discussed using the “top-down” approach, but this oftentimes leads to the omission of the contributions of the many men and women who are essential to the success of these institutions—men like Dr. Joseph James Dennis who served Clark College for forty-seven years. During his tenure, Dennis served as the chairman of the mathematics department, homecoming committee, and institutional representative and President of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC). The purpose of this study is to explore Dennis’ contributions and why Clark College dedicated a building in his ...

A Cartographic History Of Huntington, West Virginia, 1871-1903, Brooks Bryant

Manuscripts

Excerpt:

Maps provide a visual representation of the space that surrounds us, revealing how streets, towns, cities, states and countries developed physical boundaries. Plotting change over time through maps allows people to study and reflect on the environment leading to a better understanding of spatial reality. Just like any other primary source, maps are a creation of their social and cultural context conveying certain details while omitting others.

Nazi Looted Art: View Of A Dutch Square Through Time, Rosita Saul, Bryleigh Sue Blaise 2016 Chapman University

Nazi Looted Art: View Of A Dutch Square Through Time, Rosita Saul, Bryleigh Sue Blaise

Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

After World War II, many Jewish families and their possessions were displaced or seized by German forces, only to resurface after the war. The case of the Kraus family and their painting, View of a Dutch Square, confiscated by the Nazis in 1941, raises particular questions about restitution laws. Our project traces the origin of the painting and displays how the restitution process fell apart when the Bavarian government, charged with the responsibility of returning stolen art to its rightful owners, failed to follow through on their commitment: even returning missing art pieces to the very Nazis who stole them ...

The Failure Of Westphalia: A Constructivist Examination Of Western And Middle Eastern Relations, Jayson Warren 2016 Liberty University

The Failure Of Westphalia: A Constructivist Examination Of Western And Middle Eastern Relations, Jayson Warren

Masters Theses

This thesis is not intended to be a dogmatic or pedantic endorsement of any one religion, ethic, or culture. To the contrary, it is the intent of the author to examine a number of competing ideas, philosophies, and belief systems in order to extrapolate their geopolitical implications and to pursue them to their logical (albeit sometimes inevitable) conclusions. Too often, any number of presuppositions at work within a given situation go overlooked and subsequently skew geopolitical analysis and resulting policy decisions. This thesis seeks to transcend mere opinion or speculation and achieve instead a framework of Constructivism for pragmatic comprehension ...
