Naming Rape: The Social Practice Of Power, Agency, And Victimization In The Italo-Ethiopian War, 1936-1940, Caroline Waldron Merithew 2017 University of Dayton

Naming Rape: The Social Practice Of Power, Agency, And Victimization In The Italo-Ethiopian War, 1936-1940, Caroline Waldron Merithew

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

This paper, “Naming Rape,” shows how and when rape got named as part of the movement against the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1936. I show that activists used the term strategically at certain points and specific places of the struggle to sway opinion and move the international community to challenge fascist violence and expansionism. Naming rape was something new for antiwar activists at this time.


La Emigración A Norteamérica, La Peregrinación Y La Hospitalidad, Charli Tyree 2017 University of Alabama at Birmingham

La Emigración A Norteamérica, La Peregrinación Y La Hospitalidad, Charli Tyree

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

¿Qué es la peregrinación?: Hay varias definiciones de la palabra “peregrinación.” Una peregrinación es un viaje largo hecho a un lugar especial o sagrado para la urificación, como un acto de algún tipo de afiliación religiosa (Duque 270). Por ejemplo, cuando los cristianos van en peregrinación, viajan a un lugar que se considera especial para su fe personal, un práctico más viejo que cosmocentrismo teocrático (Duque 273). Estos lugares podrían ser donde nació Jesús, donde han ocurrido milagros, donde está enterrado un santo, como el Camino de Santiago, o cualquier otro lugar mencionado en la Biblia y que contiene un ...


Un’Analisi Di Sei Poesie Di Sibilla Aleramo, Olivia Mazza 2017 Kennesaw State University

Un’Analisi Di Sei Poesie Di Sibilla Aleramo, Olivia Mazza

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Sibilla Aleramo è lo pseudonimo di Rina Faccio, un’autrice italiana, nata a Alessandra, in Italia, il 14 agosto 1876 e morta il 13 gennaio 1960 a Roma. Lei era una femminista meglio conosciuta per le sue raffigurazioni autobiografiche della vita come una donna nel tardo XIX secolo in Italia. Aleramo dice che si sente come se lei avesse vissuto tre vite. "La sua 'vita prima,' come madre e moglie, è delineata nel suo romanzo Una Donna. Una citazione da Una Donna spiega: “Ubbidisci al comando della tua coscienza, rispetta sopra tutto la tua dignità, madre: sii forte, resisti lontana ...


Florecitas Roqueras: Rock, Punk Y El Problema De Género En Hispanoamérica, Micaela Lyons 2017 Ursinus College

Florecitas Roqueras: Rock, Punk Y El Problema De Género En Hispanoamérica, Micaela Lyons

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Se puede afirmar que la sociedad latinoamericana en general es predominantemente patriarcal, una en la que sus miembros tienen ideas rígidas sobre las vidas de las mujeres y en la que los hombres tienen cierta ventaja. En este sentido, el rock y la industria de música no son diferentes. Sin embargo, a lo largo de la historia moderna la música rock ha abierto varias posibilidades para otorgar poder a las mujeres, ofreciéndoles herramientas para rechazar la naturaleza patriarcal y dominante de su entorno. En este ensayo, exploro las relaciones entre las mujeres y el rock para mostrar como estas mujeres ...


Gedichte Als Antwort Auf Den 2. Weltkrieg: Gomringers Und Jandls Konkrete Poesie In Der Nachkriegszeit, Miranda Gilgore 2017 Colgate University

Gedichte Als Antwort Auf Den 2. Weltkrieg: Gomringers Und Jandls Konkrete Poesie In Der Nachkriegszeit, Miranda Gilgore

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Die konkrete Poesie wurde erstmals schriftlich als solche 1955 genannt (McCullough ix; Bornscheuer 418). Die Art stammt aus dem Altgriechischen und Lateinischen, aber zwei brasilianische Dichter sowie der Schweizer Eugen Gomringer brachten konkrete Poesie zur bedeutenden Rolle in der Diskussion von Poesie (McCullough ix; Bornscheuer 418). Konkrete Poesie diente als Bruch von der Dichtung der Vergangenheit und den zugehörigen Regeln (Gomringer Theorie der konkreten Poesie 12-18). Was bedeutend an konkreter Poesie ist, ist dass sie keine bestimmte Syntax und kein festgelegtes Reimschema hat (McCullough vii). Der Name konkrete Poesie bezieht sich auf die Wichtigkeit der Form und Gestalt der Poesie ...


Geräusche Von Innen: Musik Und Der Kuleschow Effekt Im Film Die Wand, Brianna Bean 2017 Butler University

Geräusche Von Innen: Musik Und Der Kuleschow Effekt Im Film Die Wand, Brianna Bean

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Musik ist ein wichtiger Teil jedes Films, weil Musik die Emotionen der Zuschauer so stark manipulieren kann. Es gibt wenig Musik in Julian Pölslers Film, Die Wand, aber die Musik, die es gibt, ist wichtig, weil sie eine unerwartete Tiefe in den Film bringt. Der Film beginnt mit einem fröhlichen Popsong, darauf folgen verschiedene Klänge, die sich im Film wiederholen und die ich hier als „Musik“ lese und analysiere. Schließlich gibt es wiederholt Stücke der Partita Nummer Zwei für Violine von J. S. Bach. Diese Musikbeispiele drücken das zentrale Filmthema der Selbstisolation aus. Wegen des Popsongs zu ...

Mermaid Song: The Notebooks Of The Writing Woman, Gianna T. Ward-Vetrano 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Mermaid Song: The Notebooks Of The Writing Woman, Gianna T. Ward-Vetrano

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

This thesis is built on the model of Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook, that is, it is a feminist project of holistic integration that does not reject fracturing, ambiguity, or contradiction, but aims to attain a more complex and thus truer portrait of the woman writing. Lessing’s notebooks examine conflicts between communism and capitalism, racial conflict in Africa, conflict between men and women, and the conflict between the protagonist Anna Wulf’s identity as a woman and her identity as a writer, each of which she then attempts to integrate into the singular golden notebook of the title ...


Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing And Reception Of Catherine Of Siena, Lisa Tagliaferri 2017 Graduate Center, City University of New York

Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing And Reception Of Catherine Of Siena, Lisa Tagliaferri

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

Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing and Reception of Catherine of Siena (https://caterina.io) affirms the 14th-century mystic Catherine of Siena as a writer through contextualizing her texts among the corpus of contemporary Italian literature, and studying her reception in the Renaissance period of Italy and England. Joining an increasing body of recent meaningful scholarship that has been making significant progress to recover many overlooked and peripheral female voices of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, this work serves to fully assert Catherine as a writer of work that is literarily significant and worthy of textual analysis alongside contemporary male Italian ...


Il Parco Del Mincio: Un Caso Di Studio Interculturale: Dall’Organizzazione Del Parco E Regolamentazione Del Volontariato Alla Definizione E Creazione Di Un Watershed., Natalie McNeill 2017 Dickinson College

Il Parco Del Mincio: Un Caso Di Studio Interculturale: Dall’Organizzazione Del Parco E Regolamentazione Del Volontariato Alla Definizione E Creazione Di Un Watershed., Natalie Mcneill

Student Honors Theses By Year

This thesis focuses on the Mincio Park in Mantua, Italy, which uses volunteers to protect the Park and is part of an important watershed. Before going to Mantua, a list of vocabulary and research about the Park and volunteers were compiled to be able to discuss scientific concepts during interviews. Research questions were created to understand how the Park is managed, the motivations of volunteers and administrators, the role of volunteers, and the main environmental problems that the Park faces. Through interviews, the goal of the project was to understand the entire watershed. It became clear during this process, however ...


Contro I Margini: L'Amica Geniale Tra Dimensione Personale E Narrativa, Thera Dal Prà Iversen 2017 Dickinson College

Contro I Margini: L'Amica Geniale Tra Dimensione Personale E Narrativa, Thera Dal Prà Iversen

Student Honors Theses By Year

This thesis approaches Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Quartet – which consists of the novels My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of the Lost Child – in two different modes. The first chapter concentrates on research that I undertook in Naples during the Winter Break of 2016-17. During that time I visited the areas that Ferrante writes about in the Quartet, and I annotated my bodily and emotional reactions to the Neapolitan environment, which, together with Italian feminist theory, helped me reflect how Naples impacts the main characters. This chapter ...

L'Orto In Città: Dalle Radici Storiche Alle Pratiche Contemporanee: Agricoltura, Pedagogia, Recupero Urbano E Interculturalità In Quattro Casi Di Studio Nel Contesto Bolognese, Delphine Dall'agata

Student Honors Theses By Year

This research examines a geographical and historical panorama of Italian agriculture, the history of urban agriculture, the phenomenon of urban green zones from the Middle Ages to present day in the city of Bologna, and four urban garden case studies in the Bologna area: a city-owned community garden on 142 Via Saragozza, a preschool in the Giardini Margherita greenhouses, an urban farm in the marginalized Pilastro neighborhood, and an African garden in a refugee welcome center in Crespellano. In all four experiments, urban gardens are tools of socialization and civic collaboration. Through my interviews and observations, I unearthed the environmental ...

Paese Di Accoglienza: Il Successo Di Un Modello Innovativo Di Accoglienza Dei Richiedenti Asilo In Italia, Isabela Arena Secanechia 2017 Arcadia University

Paese Di Accoglienza: Il Successo Di Un Modello Innovativo Di Accoglienza Dei Richiedenti Asilo In Italia, Isabela Arena Secanechia

Senior Capstone Theses

This work discusses Italy's migrant reception system including its flaws and their effects. Furthermore, this work explores an alternative, sustainable model of migrant reception created in Riace, Calabria, that has been successful in varying towns across Italy. Ultimately, this work argues that this system, which is beneficial to both Italians and incoming migrants — specifically asylum seekers — can and should be implemented nationally to counter the current flawed system.


La Divisione Fra I Divisionisti, Meijing He 2017 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

La Divisione Fra I Divisionisti, Meijing He

Senior Theses and Projects

My thesis explores the philosophical and ideological divergence among the artists of the Italian Divisionism. Divisionism is a distinctive artistic phenomenon that had a short lifespan of twenty years from 1890 to 1910. Like the French Pointilism, it absorbed the influence of contemporary scientific theories on optical perception in relation to colors. Instead of blending colors in a traditional way, the artists of this style juxtaposed individual, broken strokes in primary colors to achieve the effect of maximum luminosity. Unlike the French neo-impressionists, however, their subject matter featured a strong involvement in social and political issues, idealized depiction of nature ...

The Search For An Identity: The Merging Of The Past And Present To Form A Future In Italian Culture, Olivia Witwer 2017 University of Colorado, Boulder

The Search For An Identity: The Merging Of The Past And Present To Form A Future In Italian Culture, Olivia Witwer

Undergraduate Honors Theses

A country is often defined by its national identity and how it expresses the history of its cultural characteristics. For a majority of its history, the Italian peninsula was a land that was separated by multiple dukedoms and republics that were also marked by war and violence. When Italy became a unified nation in 1861 it struggled to bring its unique cities together under one government and culture. This type of unification had already been progressing throughout much of Europe, whereas Italy was just starting to forge a unified national identity. In order to form a true national identity that ...


Dante’S Divine Comedy: A Pastoral Subversion, Katie Francom 2017 Brigham Young University

Dante’S Divine Comedy: A Pastoral Subversion, Katie Francom

Criterion: A Journal of Literary Criticism

This paper attempts to widen the scholarly understanding of Dante’s use of pastoral modes within The Divine Comedy. By examining typical pastoral themes, Dante’s use of Virgil as a guide, and the presence of pastoral themes within the Comedy, this paper will ultimately assert that Dante completely reshapes the pastoral genre, taking it from its typically pagan history and giving it new, Christian meaning. By so doing he makes his beautifully artistic story into an enlightening spiritual journey for the reader.
