Patrick Henry: The Revolutionary Hero, Bailey A. Gillespy 2017 Selected Works

Patrick Henry: The Revolutionary Hero, Bailey A. Gillespy

Scott T. Allison

This chapter explores several factors that drove Patrick Henry towards heroism,
examines what kind of hero he was, and addresses how his heroic action
impacted America. I will discuss the various steps of Henry’s heroic journey
using Christopher Vogler’s (2007) twelve step model, based on Joseph
Campbell’s (1949) hero’s monomyth. I will identify the attributes that enabled
Henry to achieve heroic status, drawing from Allison and Goethals’ (2011)
conceptualization of the great eight traits of heroes, and I will examine the
events of his life that led to the acquisition of these traits. I will examine ...

how Keller exhibited the great eight heroic traits from Allison and Goethals’
(2011) list of eight qualities that every hero possesses. I will also discuss how
Keller’s leadership affected her social identity and why her gender had an
influence on her leadership as well. I will also describe ...

Household Activities And Areas: A Reanalysis Of The John And Priscilla Alden First Home Site, Caroline Gardiner 2017 University of Massachusetts Boston

Household Activities And Areas: A Reanalysis Of The John And Priscilla Alden First Home Site, Caroline Gardiner

Graduate Masters Theses

This thesis seeks to further understanding of early colonial life within New England through an examination of the John and Priscilla Alden First Home site in Duxbury, MA, excavated in 1960 by Roland Robbins. It specifically focuses on the composition and spatial distribution of the ceramic assemblage to discuss household activities and the spaces in which they were performed. The findings of the ceramic analysis detail a collection composed primarily of utilitarian vessels that indicate multiple subsistence farming activities including dairying. The spatial study reveals the significant patterning of these artifacts. It is proposed that these denote specific activity areas ...

Trois Robes De Bal Selon Mme De Genlis, Ou L’Émotion De Statue, Servanne Woodward 2017 The University of Western Ontario

Trois Robes De Bal Selon Mme De Genlis, Ou L’Émotion De Statue, Servanne Woodward

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Mlle de Clermont reçoit une robe de bal, l'abîme en enroulant son pied dans du tissus, se change pour être vêtue plus simplement et se mouler aux exigences socio-esthétiques de son amant. En contre partie, celui-ci s'anime. Plusieurs des écrits de Genlis impliquent une configuration narrative évoquant Pygmalion et Dédale, et le motif d'un partenaire de bal qui immobilise la jeune héroïne, ou l'empêche de poursuivre ses pas en la retenant par sa robe, en lui faisant changer de robe, en la modelant pour la statufier, en la jetant sur la paille ou sous le chaume ...


Crossing Selma's Bridge: Integrating Visual Discovery Strategy And Young Adult Literature To Promote Dialogue And Understanding, Steven T. Bickmore, Gretchen Rumohr-Voskuil, Paul Binford 2017 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Crossing Selma's Bridge: Integrating Visual Discovery Strategy And Young Adult Literature To Promote Dialogue And Understanding, Steven T. Bickmore, Gretchen Rumohr-Voskuil, Paul Binford

Middle Grades Review

Urban communities, separated by race and class, experience a disproportionate number of gun deaths, police shootings, crime, violent and nonviolent protests, as well as disparities in housing, education, and employment. These discussions are visual and textual, appearing in both traditional and social media outlets. How do adolescents read and make sense of these images? We discuss integrating a Social Studies practice, Visual Discovery Strategy, with Young Adult Literature to provide students with the skills to both critique images from the events in their lives and produce responses through both traditional and digital methods.

“Mais Elle Connaît L’Art De Feindre, Étant Femme”: La Duchesse De Châtillon, Entre Émotion Ostentatoire, Séduction Et Stratégie Politique, Anne-Pauline Crepet 2017 University of London

“Mais Elle Connaît L’Art De Feindre, Étant Femme”: La Duchesse De Châtillon, Entre Émotion Ostentatoire, Séduction Et Stratégie Politique, Anne-Pauline Crepet

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Cet article s'intéresse à la duchesse de Châtillon (1627-1695) et à son utilisation, fréquemment feinte, des émotions, et plus précisément de l’affliction, comme stratégie d’intervention sociale. Issue de la prestigieuse maison des Montmorency, cette éminente aristocrate a fait l’objet de très peu d’études. Veuve à deux reprises, elle a pourtant tenu le rôle de négociatrice officieuse pour Louis XIV dans le Saint-Empire romain germanique, alors que les femmes étaient à l’époque tenues à l’écart des affaires politiques. L'argumentation s'appuie d’une part sur la correspondance diplomatique de la duchesse avec d ...

Oscar Brousse Jacobson: The Life And Art Of A Cosmopolitan Cultural Broker, Anne Allbright

History Theses and Dissertations

As a graduate student studying art at Yale, Oscar Brousse Jacobson (1882–1966) pinned his career on the hopes of someday opening an art school in the American West. Jacobson was a Swedish immigrant, but he felt a deep connection to the West because he spent much of his youth on a ranch in Kansas and roamed the greater Southwest by horseback during the late 1800s. Jacobson believed that after he completed his graduate studies in New England, he would eventually return West. He planned to bring great works of art, produce his own paintings, instruct young artists, and foster ...


Seeing Witchcraft, Bernhard Udelhoven 2017 Society of the Missionaries of Africa

Seeing Witchcraft, Bernhard Udelhoven

Journal of Global Catholicism

When Christians in Zambia struggle with witchcraft, they also struggle with African cultural and religious concepts that deal with life’s ambiguities and that require discernment. It is not by working against the cultural and religious heritage, but by working with it, as far as possible, that the pastor can identify the broken relationships towards which many witchcraft discourses point. However, before we place the concepts of witchcraft into the realm of superstition (as are the trends of mission Christianity) or the demonic (as are the trends of charismatic Christianity), the Church has the duty to look at the concepts ...
