A ‘Moral’ Crusade: Central-Eastern European Nationalism, Xenophobia, And Far-Right Extremism In Response To The ‘Refugee Crisis’, Margaret E. Cave, Briana M. Roberts 2017 University of Wyoming

A ‘Moral’ Crusade: Central-Eastern European Nationalism, Xenophobia, And Far-Right Extremism In Response To The ‘Refugee Crisis’, Margaret E. Cave, Briana M. Roberts

Honors Theses AY 16/17

In light of the so-called refugee crisis, many European states have seen a rise in support for far-right and/or populist political movements and xenophobia directed towards those perceived to fit into the highly politicized category of ‘refugee.’ This paper examines the rhetoric disseminated by these political groups surrounding refugees and migrants from Muslim majority countries to discuss how far-right and xenophobic groups in Hungary, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic have bolstered support through fear-mongering and the scapegoating of Muslim and Middle Eastern migrants and refugees. We further discuss how fear-based ethnic nationalisms have been exploited by particular ...

The Stories We Tell, Abigail A. Hoekstra

MAD-RUSH Undergraduate Research Conference

Allison breaks away from the stories she has been told to tell a new story of abuse and disembodiment in which she finds love, and in turn, embodiment; the unification of her body and spirit. Story-telling and ...

L'Histoire De L'Art Au Défi De La Mondialisation: Une Position Critique, Paula Barreiro López 2017 Universitat de Barcelona

L'Histoire De L'Art Au Défi De La Mondialisation: Une Position Critique, Paula Barreiro López

Artl@s Bulletin

Le défi de la mondialisation et de la “décolonisation” de nos pensées est désormais une préoccupation quotidienne pour la majorité des chercheurs en histoire de l’art. Il est trop tôt pour faire le bilan du fameux « Global turn », tournant d’autant plus timide qu’il se concrétise plus lentement dans les collections publiques et dans l’opinion que dans les livres. Mais nous avons voulu interroger, un peu partout dans le monde, des acteurs à l’écoute des nouvelles pratiques mondiales en histoire de l’art. Issus de milieux culturels et de traditions universitaires variées, de générations diverses, ils ...

Coming from different cultural milieus and academic traditions, and belonging to different generations, they agreed to answer our questions, and to ...

Exploring Perceptions Of Goodness Among The Malaysian And Chinese University Students: A Focus Group Study, Madiha Hashmi, Moniza Waheed, Ezhar Tamam, Steven E. Krauss Dr., Abdul Muati Ahmad

The Qualitative Report

The notion of goodness is implicitly central to the discourse relating to person perception. To date, no empirical research has focused solely upon understanding the notion of goodness and how it’s perceived and discerned in others. Utilizing focus group interviews, this paper explores how people perceive and interpret goodness in collectivist cultures of Malaysia and China. Findings revealed that Malaysian and Chinese participants had somewhat similar notions about goodness. “Concern for others’ welfare” was found to have the most resonance across the two nationalities as a key element in discerning goodness in others. Another category emerging from the findings ...

L’Histoire Mondiale De L’Art, Au Défi D’Un Grand Récit, Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel 2017 Ecole normale supérieure, PSL

L’Histoire Mondiale De L’Art, Au Défi D’Un Grand Récit, Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel

Artl@s Bulletin

Pour proposer une « histoire mondiale », et pour faire honneur à toutes les productions issues de tous les continents, en particulier ceux qu’on avait méprisés, l’idéal serait d’articuler un récit lui-même mondial. Il nous faut un récit émancipé non seulement des hiérarchies propres au canon (ancien/moderne, beaux-arts/décoration, kitsch / classique), mais aussi un récit qui aille plus loin que la production de hiérarchies dont même le récit postcolonial a du mal à sortir (dominants/dominés). Comment produire un récit qui, en outre, connecte des collections « locales » et des collections « internationales » en gardant du lien entre les deux ?

America's Discovery Of The Arts After The Industrial Revolution: The Evolution Of The Middle Class Through Music, Rachel Blizzard

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

Music in nineteenth century America was greatly influenced by the Industrial Revolution and brought about changes in society through the development of concert life, the introduction of the piano in the home, and the new role women were given in music.

This exposure occurred through the formation of the classical concert in Europe that spread to America and promoted an awareness for the arts. It also caused more families to incorporate music into their daily lives through the growing affordability and popularity of ...

Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama And The Manic Pixie Dream Girl, Claire T. Solomon 2017 Oberlin College

Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama And The Manic Pixie Dream Girl, Claire T. Solomon

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama and the Manic Pixie Dream Girl (1929-2016)" Claire Solomon analyzes the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope as an apparatus of capture (Deleuze and Guattari, A Thousand). More precisely, her article models how such tropes imply modes of reading anachronistically and metafictionally that decontextualize gestures of resistance and conflate female writers, performers, and characters across time and place. Solomon offers a situated formalist reading of Argentine playwright Salvadora Medina Onrubia's 1929 drama, Las descentradas, revealing an avant-garde counterpoint of melodrama and metafiction as an ambiguous alternative to capture.

Picturing Robinson Crusoe: Edward Gordon Craig, Daniel Defoe And Image-Text Inquiry, Eric T. Haskell 2017 Scripps College

Picturing Robinson Crusoe: Edward Gordon Craig, Daniel Defoe And Image-Text Inquiry, Eric T. Haskell

Mime Journal

Haskell focuses on Craig’s work with art books in this essay. He offers a wealth of visual images to investigate influences upon Craig’s engraved illustrations for an edition of Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, a project planned for the Cranach Press, executed during the late 1930s, and published posthumously by the Basilisk Press in 1979. Haskell calls attention to the way that this fascinating edition—previously overshadowed by the Craig-Cranach Press Hamlet in the scholarly literature—adds to our understanding of Craig’s theories of print as performance. He also offers a nuanced reading of the way that Craig ...
