Evaristo C. Martínez-Radío

The Bourbon dinasty accession to the Spanish Throne from the Louis XVI’s French world power, which was personified in his grandson Fhilip V, involved significant changes in the military field. In fact, the newly arrived monarch had to start his reign with the Spanish War of Succession, which became him strong on the Throne. His period was characterized in the internacional affairs by an almost continuous state of war. In this sense, to count on a good defensive structures in the material range, as well as the Human one, was vitally important. It is here where we emphazise the ...

Incidental Music: Enhancing The Emotional Experience Of The Audience, Kathleen B. Nelson, Daniel E. Nelson

Caesars Hospitality Research Summit

Environmental psychologists, who study transactions between individuals and their physical settings, maintain when an individual’s environment is changed, his/her behavior and experience are also changed by the environment (Gifford, 2002). Like other segments of the theatrical setting, a manipulation of the environment can enhance or constrain audience actions. Physical elements, as well as other ambient factors such as lighting, color, quality of materials, set design, music, fragrance, and room temperature are just a sample of the dramatic elements used to orchestrate the environment. However, this paper explores the relationship between the elements utilized to create enhanced experiences for ...

Nativism Is Alive And Thriving In America, Mark Paul 2010 University of California - Berkeley

Nativism Is Alive And Thriving In America, Mark Paul

Mark Paul

For those who prefer light to heat on the immigration question, Not Fit for Our Society is the perfect place to start. Drawing on his decades of reporting and reading of primary sources and the latest scholarship, Schrag traces the strange career of American nativism and America’s enduring ambivalence about immigration from the Puritan saints to the Tea Partiers. He delivers a story rich in irony, detail, and nuance, often told with passion and frequently challenging orthodoxies of both the political right and left. It is the right book at the right time, a worthy successor to John Higham ...

Archival Analysis Of The Committee On Public Information: The Relationship Between Propaganda, Journalism And Popular Culture, Krystina Benson 2010 Bond University

Archival Analysis Of The Committee On Public Information: The Relationship Between Propaganda, Journalism And Popular Culture, Krystina Benson

Krystina L. Benson

In 1916 American President Woodrow Wilson was re-elected on the slogan “He kept us out of war”. On April 6th, 1917, America joined the Great War. The Wilson administration recognised the support of the nation was required for the war effort. To mobilize the fractioned population, The Committee on Public Information (CPI) was created. Their campaign was the first of its kind. It propagated through a multi-media platform incorporating text, image, moving pictures, speech, and live events. The success of the campaign was noted both domestically and abroad. This paper details archival research findings on three divisions of the Committee ...

A Time To Choose: Finitude, Freedom, And Eternity In Dante's Commedia And Lewis's Great Divorce, Matthew Swift 2010 Baylor University

A Time To Choose: Finitude, Freedom, And Eternity In Dante's Commedia And Lewis's Great Divorce, Matthew Swift

The C. S. Lewis & Friends Colloquium

Many scholars rightly note the use of Dantean imagery and ideas in The Great Divorce, but they do not focus primarily on the relationship between Lewis’s and Dante’s presentations of some central themes. Dante, like Lewis, is deeply concerned with human nature and decisions, especially as they relate to eternity. I propose that Lewis’s The Great Divorce presents views on the intertwining issues of finitude, freedom, and eternity, views which closely reflect those presented by Dante in his Commedia. An examination of each author’s full treatment of these three themes is beyond the scope of this ...


Reader And Writer: Lewis And Tolkien "On Fairy-Stories", Elizabeth Coon 2010 Messiah College

Reader And Writer: Lewis And Tolkien "On Fairy-Stories", Elizabeth Coon

The C. S. Lewis & Friends Colloquium

Although J.R.R. Tolkien’s reputation in recent years has benefited immensely from Peter Jackson’s film productions of The Lord of the Rings, C.S. Lewis still far outreaches him in terms of public awareness and popularity, specifically within the Christian world. Most are surprised to learn that Tolkien played a major role in Lewis’ conversion, rather than vice versa, and that their famous friendship did not continue indefinitely, but began to fade with the publication of Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. The differences in their philosophies of storytelling unsurprisingly reveals the philosophy o their relationship. In “On ...


The Shieldmaiden Of Rohan, Hannah Woodard 2010 Furman University

The Shieldmaiden Of Rohan, Hannah Woodard

The C. S. Lewis & Friends Colloquium

*First Place Winner of Student Essay Contest*

This paper explores the origin and purpose of one of Tolkien’s most highly debated characters: Eowyn. I have examined Eowyn from multiple angles, taking into consideration Christian, feminist, and literary perspectives, as well as considering her medieval origins. Tolkien synthesizes all of these factors into a strong female character who represents a larger theme of his work, the triumph of paradoxical power which comes through humility and gentleness. Eowyn’s inner struggle is illuminated particularly by her relationships with both Aragorn, who represents power and renown, and Faramir, who represents restraint and ...


So Old And So New: Memory And Expectation In The Fantastic Works Of C.S. Lewis And J.R.R. Tolkien, Megan J. Robinson 2010 Taylor University

So Old And So New: Memory And Expectation In The Fantastic Works Of C.S. Lewis And J.R.R. Tolkien, Megan J. Robinson

The C. S. Lewis & Friends Colloquium

For both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, the realms and stories of Faërie and the fantastic, in addition to being entertaining were revelatory: insights about the very nature of Reality come through the images and narratives of these secondary worlds, in which the perception of time often plays a major role. Examining such issues as time and ultimate reality I Lewis’s and Tolkien’s works must take into account each author’s devout and profound Christian faith, oriented around the eucatastrophe of the Gospel message radiating backwards and forwards throughout human history. This faith thus shaped ...


Human Enhancement And The Abolition Of Man, Stephen A. Phillips 2010 Taylor University

Human Enhancement And The Abolition Of Man, Stephen A. Phillips

The C. S. Lewis & Friends Colloquium

Over 60 years ago C.S. Lewis wrote a book about the importance of values in education. In The Abolition of Man Lewis began by exploring the importance of values in education, but by the end Lewis addressed how the relentless pursuit of the conquest of nature divorced from traditional values could result in the conquest of mankind by nature and the destruction of what it means to be human. However, what he imagined might happen by the hundredth century A.D. is beginning to be possible in the twenty-first. Preliminary successes in gene therapy suggest that germ line gene ...
