Best Practices For Planning, Developing, And Sustaining Interdisciplinary Language-Based Study Abroad Programs, Chad M. Gasta 2019 IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

Best Practices For Planning, Developing, And Sustaining Interdisciplinary Language-Based Study Abroad Programs, Chad M. Gasta

Chad M. Gasta

Forthcoming, Study Abroad: Traditions, Directions, and Innovations.New York: Modern Language Association. 

This essay will provide a road map for planning and developing interdisciplinary language-based study abroad programs while also offering advice on how to sustain them over time. The advice provided by the articles is drawn from my own experience over 16 years directing the “ISU on the Mediterranean – Summer in Valencia, Spain,” that teaches beginning through advanced Spanish as well as courses in English in engineering, management, marketing, and the biological sciences (field work and lab work). This distinctive approach yields arguably the largest language-based (and language department ...


Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], David Wood 2019 Fordham University

Reoccupy Earth [Table Of Contents], David Wood

Philosophy

Habit rules our lives. And yet climate change and the catastrophic future it portends, makes it clear that we cannot go on like this.

Our habits are integral to narratives of the good life, to social norms and expectations, as well as to economic reality. Such shared shapes are vital. Yet while many of our individual habits seem perfectly reasonable, when aggregated together they spell disaster. Beyond consumerism, other forms of life and patterns of dwelling are clearly possible. But how can we get there from here?

Philosophy is about emancipation—from illusions, myths, and oppression. In Reoccupy Earth, the ...

Feminist Approaches To Moral Luck, Carolyn McLeod, Jody Tomchishen 2019 University of Western Ontario

Feminist Approaches To Moral Luck, Carolyn Mcleod, Jody Tomchishen

Carolyn McLeod

To a large extent, what we do and the circumstances we find ourselves in are beyond our control.[i]Yet this fact presents a problem for the common view that we can be held responsible only for what we have direct control over. If we have control over very little, if anything at all, then to what extent can we be held responsible? A typical response by feminist philosophers is to accept the absence of control—or in other words, the presence of luck—but to insist that responsibility remains often enough. According to this view, where there is luck ...


Designer Fragrance: Mary’S Anointing Of Jesus Within The Network Architecture Of John 11–13, Keith L. Yoder 2019 University of Massachusetts

Designer Fragrance: Mary’S Anointing Of Jesus Within The Network Architecture Of John 11–13, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

This proposed presentation examines two sources of influence in the composition of John 12:1-11. First, its individual elements and flow of events have been influenced by the precedent Synoptic texts of Mark 14:3-11 and Luke 7:36-50. Second, it has been composed and most likely edited to fit into an integrated network of parallels and reversals embedded in the larger context of John 10:40–13:33. Pierre Moulan Beernaert first noticed in 1981 the parallel and orderly movements of John 11 and 12. Analysis here will show that many of the parallel features in John 11–12 ...


Colonizing Christianity, George E. Demacopoulos 2019 Fordham University

Colonizing Christianity, George E. Demacopoulos

Religion

Colonizing Christianity employs postcolonial critique to analyze the transformations of Greek and Latin religious identity in the wake of the Fourth Crusade. It argues that the experience of colonization splintered the Greek community, which could not agree how best to respond to the Latin other. By offering a close reading of a handful of texts from the era of the Fourth Crusade and subsequent Latin Empire of Byzantium, this book illuminates mechanisms by which Western Christians authorized and exploited the Christian East and, concurrently, the ways in which Eastern Christians understood and responded to the dramatic shift in their political ...


The Mathematical Imagination, Matthew Handelman 2019 Fordham University

The Mathematical Imagination, Matthew Handelman

Philosophy

This book offers an archeology of the undeveloped potential of mathematics for critical theory. As Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno first conceived of the critical project in the 1930s, critical theory steadfastly opposed the mathematization of thought. Mathematics flattened thought into a dangerous positivism that led reason to the barbarism of World War II. The Mathematical Imagination challenges this narrative, showing how for other German-Jewish thinkers, such as Gershom Scholem, Franz Rosenzweig, and Siegfried Kracauer, mathematics offered metaphors to negotiate the crises of modernity during the Weimar Republic. Influential theories of poetry, messianism, and cultural critique, Handelman shows, borrowed ...


The Tongue-Tied Imagination [Table Of Contents], Tobias Warner 2019 Fordham University

The Tongue-Tied Imagination [Table Of Contents], Tobias Warner

Literature

Should a writer work in a former colonial language or in a vernacular? The language question was one of the great, intractable problems that haunted postcolonial literatures in the twentieth century, but it has since acquired a reputation as a dead end for narrow nationalism.

Focusing on the case of Senegal, Warner investigates the intersection of French and Wolof. Drawing on an under-studied corpus of novels, poetry, and films in both languages, the book traces the emergence of a politics of language from colonization through independence to the era of neoliberal development.

Refusing to see the turn to vernacular languages ...


Exterranean [Table Of Contents], Phillip John Usher 2019 Fordham University

Exterranean [Table Of Contents], Phillip John Usher

Literature

“For anyone who might be suffering from Anthropocene fatigue, this is a book to jolt you from your slumbers. What happens to the globe when we shift attention from the outward projection of emissions to extraction ? The Earth we thought we knew, and were already mourning, takes on a stunning new critical light.”—Claire Colebrook, Pennsylvania State University

Exterranean concerns the extraction of stuff from the Earth, a process in which matter goes from being sub- to exterranean. By bringing a rich archive of nonmodern texts and images from across Europe, into conversation with the contemporary work of Bruno Latour ...


Killing Times [Table Of Contents], David Wills 2019 Fordham University

Killing Times [Table Of Contents], David Wills

Philosophy

Killing Times begins with the deceptively simple observation—made by Jacques Derrida in his seminars on the topic—that the death penalty mechanically interrupts mortal time by preempting the typical mortal experience of not knowing at what precise moment we will die.

Killing Times traces the logic of the death penalty across a range of sites. Starting with the struggles of American courts to articulate what methods of execution constitute “cruel and unusual punishment,” Wills goes on to show the ways that technologies of death have themselves evolved in conjunction with fraught ideas of cruelty and instantaneity, from the guillotine ...


Achieving Freedom From Suffering Through The Practice Of Meditative Yoga: A Comparative Investigation Of The Buddhadharma And Pātañjala-Yoga, Erin Piermarini 2019 Lesley University

Achieving Freedom From Suffering Through The Practice Of Meditative Yoga: A Comparative Investigation Of The Buddhadharma And Pātañjala-Yoga, Erin Piermarini

Mindfulness Studies Theses

This paper explores the relationship between the Buddhadharma and Pātañjala-yoga. Specifically, it looks at how the two traditions respond to the predicament of human suffering(dukkha). Though the two situate dukkhawithin their respective systems of metaphysics, resulting in divergent understandings of suffering, unsatisfactoriness, and stress and different rationales for practicing, the two employ nearly identical practical yoga methodologies to overcome this ubiquitous phenomenon. Each tradition situates meditative yogawithin an eight-part wise and ethical framework. Through this practice one is able to harness the power of concentration in a way that makes it possible to witness the flowering of ...

Frontiers Of Conditional Logic, Yale Weiss 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Frontiers Of Conditional Logic, Yale Weiss

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Conditional logics were originally developed for the purpose of modeling intuitively correct modes of reasoning involving conditional—especially counterfactual—expressions in natural language. While the debate over the logic of conditionals is as old as propositional logic, it was the development of worlds semantics for modal logic in the past century that catalyzed the rapid maturation of the field. Moreover, like modal logic, conditional logic has subsequently found a wide array of uses, from the traditional (e.g. counterfactuals) to the exotic (e.g. conditional obligation). Despite the close connections between conditional and modal logic, both the technical development and ...


Meaning Beyond Words: A Musical Analysis Of Afro-Cuban Batá Drumming, Javier Diaz 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Meaning Beyond Words: A Musical Analysis Of Afro-Cuban Batá Drumming, Javier Diaz

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation consists of a musical analysis of Afro-Cuban batá drumming. Current scholarship focuses on ethnographic research, descriptive analysis, transcriptions, and studies on the language encoding capabilities of batá. However, this artistically sophisticated tradition demands a more in-depth study of its musical manufacture. Drawing from experience as a ritual batá player and as an oricha priest, I have completed the current study by following three primary analytical modalities: (1) sonic landscape, which encompasses: sound vocabulary, form, individual drum parts, and balance of musical elements; (2) timbral design, how the different batá sounds articulate meaningful and functionally distinguishable structures; (3) the ...

1919 - Catalogue Of Materials In The Archivo General De Indias For The History Of The Pacific Coast And The American Southwest, Chapman

Miscellaneous Documents and Reports

The Sevillian archive, Archivo General de Indias, contained a wealth of materials on almost every conceivable subject in Spanish colonial administration and was the most valuable single archive on that field in existence. As of 1919, much material of the Spanish period relating to regions now within the United States was still found in various local archives. The report listed the pertinent files on California history in general and that of regions in the direct line of approach to California, especially Baja California and Sonora but also affairs of the easterly provinces of the northern frontier from Nueva Vizcaya to ...
