Rumours And Realities Of Marriage Practices In Contemporary Samin Society, Arif Rohman 2009 Charles Sturt University

Rumours And Realities Of Marriage Practices In Contemporary Samin Society, Arif Rohman

Arif Rohman

From the mid-19th century the Samin people have made a contribution to resistance to Dutch colonial rule in rural Java by their non-violence movement and passive resistance (lijdelijk verset). History also notes that they have a unique culture and system of values which reflect their own local wisdom. However, many negative rumours have become widespread regarding this community. This article explores the marriage practices in Samin society and finds out how Samin society gives meaning to these marriage practices. It examines whether the practice of ‘virginity tests’ and ‘stray marriages’ exist in contemporary Samin society.


Foreword: Out From Under The Shadow Of The Federal Constitution: An Overlooked American Constitutionalism, Christian Fritz 2009 University of New Mexico - Main Campus

Foreword: Out From Under The Shadow Of The Federal Constitution: An Overlooked American Constitutionalism, Christian Fritz

Christian G. Fritz

Most scholars of constitutional law and history equate American constitutionalism with the Federal constitution. This spotlight on the Federal constitution rests on a series of modern assumptions that elevate the status of the Federal constitution over the rich history of state constitutions, and inevitably neglect the central constitutional tenet of the American Revolution - the sovereignty of the people. Viewing American constitutionalism from the perspective of the constitutional legacy of the Revolution suggests a modified paradigm in which state constitutions play a critical role in our understanding the full meaning of American constitutionalism.

The idea of a collective sovereign introduced a ...

Embodying Black Experience: Stillness, Critical Memory, And The Black Body, Harvey Young 2009 Northwestern University

Embodying Black Experience: Stillness, Critical Memory, And The Black Body, Harvey Young

Harvey Young

In 1901, George Ward, a lynching victim, was attacked, murdered, and dismembered by a mob of white men, women, and children. As his lifeless body burned in a fire, enterprising white youth cut off his toes and, later, his fingers and sold them as souvenirs. In "Embodying Black Experience," Harvey Young masterfully blends biography, archival history, performance theory, and phenomenology to relay the experiences of black men and women who, like Ward, were profoundly affected by the spectacular intrusion of racial violence within their lives. Looking back over the past two hundred years---from the exhibition of boxer Tom Molineaux and ...

Forest Of Eyes: Selected Poetry Of Tada Chimako, Jeffrey Angles 2009 Western Michigan University

Forest Of Eyes: Selected Poetry Of Tada Chimako, Jeffrey Angles

Jeffrey Angles

One of Japan's most important modern poets, Tada Chimako (1930-2003) gained prominence in her native country for her sensual, surreal poetry, and fantastic imagery. Although Tada's writing is an essential part of postwar Japanese poetry, her use of themes and motifs from European, Near Eastern, and Mediterranean history, mythology, and literature, as well as her sensitive explorations of women's inner lives make her very much a poet of the world. Forest of Eyes offers English-language readers their first opportunity to read a wide selection from Tada's extraordinary oeuvre, including nontraditional free verse, poems in the traditional ...
