The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye 2009 University of Massachusetts Boston

The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye

Chukwuma Azuonye

This paper argues that, contrary to widespread opinion, the poetry of first generation, postcolonial, modernist Nigerian poet, Michael J. C. Echeruo, draws some of its core and defining tropes from indigenous African system of thought and symbolism. The much maligned early poem "Sophia" is subjected to line-by-line close-reading to illustrate this argument. The analysis suggests that, as a matter of fact, "Sophia" can be read as a portal to Echeruo's poetic corpus as a whole.


Dred Scott Vs. The Dred Scott Case: History And Memory Of A Signal Moment In American Slavery, 1857-2007, Adam Arenson 2009 University of Texas at El Paso

Dred Scott Vs. The Dred Scott Case: History And Memory Of A Signal Moment In American Slavery, 1857-2007, Adam Arenson

Adam Arenson

The Dred Scott Case centered on the Scott family—Dred and Harriet, and their daughters Eliza and Lizzie—but in the recorded history, after March 6, 1857 the Scotts suddenly fade, as if their lives ended that day in the courthouse. They did not. Elsewhere I have examined how the Dred Scott decision catalyzed the transformation of St. Louis politics, turning Missouri toward gradual emancipation just as the South’s proslavery advocates were declaring victory. And I have described how the Scotts’ lives were recovered to memory through the actions spearheaded by their descendents. Here I chronicle how the legacies ...

Lessons Of The Alaska Dividend, Karl Widerquist 2009 Georgetown University-Qatar

Lessons Of The Alaska Dividend, Karl Widerquist

Karl Widerquist

At a time when progressive social policies are under attack across the industrialized world, the Alaska Dividend continues to be extremely popular. It distributes a yearly dividend to every man, woman, and child in Alaska without any conditions whatsoever. It has helped Alaska maintain one of the lowest poverty rates in the United States. It has helped Alaska become the most economically equal of all 50 states. And it has helped Alaska become the only U.S. state in which equality has risen rather than fallen over the last 20 years. Certainly Alaska is doing something right. As newsletter editor ...

Wang Yangming As Virtue Ethicist, Stephen C. Angle 2009 Wesleyan University

Wang Yangming As Virtue Ethicist, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Three ideas are implicit in the title of this chapter. To begin with, it is constructive to view
WANG Yangming 王陽明 (1472-1529), widely acknowledged as the most influential Confucian
thinker of the Ming dynasty, as a virtue ethicist. Second, because Wang has much in common with many other Neo-Confucian philosophers, the Neo-Confucian approach to ethics quite generally can be fruitfully understood as a type of virtue ethics. If this is true, then a third idea also follows, namely that Western virtue ethicists should pay attention to Wang and to Neo- Confucian philosophy, because here is a new (to the ...

My Work And Foucault's Genius: Foucault, Barthes, Said, Paul J. Rich 2009 George Mason University

My Work And Foucault's Genius: Foucault, Barthes, Said, Paul J. Rich

Paul J. Rich

Recent comparison of some of my work to that of Foucault is really a huge exaggeration of its importance but does point to a point that Foucault made, which is that research into small or obscure topics can have a high yield in terms of insight. Critics for example are interested in the role I have explored of Freemasonry in education.


Sound Learning, Vital Piety: The Life And Legacy Of Charles Hodge, Steve Curtis 2009 Cape Fear School of Discipleship

Sound Learning, Vital Piety: The Life And Legacy Of Charles Hodge, Steve Curtis

Steve Curtis, PhD

On a tombstone north of the campus of Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey, there can be found an epitaph that reads: Charles Hodge Beloved teacher of more than 3000 students He stood for sound learning and vital piety This is the legacy left by one of America’s first full-time academic theologians. It is not unreasonable to suppose that most are familiar with Charles Hodge primarily through his magnum opus, Systematic Theology. This is certainly a significant example of his “sound learning.” Many, however, because of the polemic nature of most of his writings, may not be as conscious ...


What Did Paul Really Mean? A Study Of Paul’S View Of Women In The Church, Steve Curtis 2009 Cape Fear School of Discipleship

What Did Paul Really Mean? A Study Of Paul’S View Of Women In The Church, Steve Curtis

Steve Curtis, PhD

The issue of the role of women in church leadership has become increasingly divisive in modern evangelicalism and has seen strident propagation of polar opposite positions. While many arguments for or against women leadership in the church begin with Old Testament narratives or with the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ interaction with women, all such arguments must, eventually, interact with the writings of the apostle Paul in this regard. Some, of course, dismiss the authenticity (and, therefore, the authority) of much of the Pauline corpus; however, this paper assumes an audience with an orthodox doctrine of the authority of the entire ...


The Potential For Evangelical Application In The Shi’A Islamic Doctrine Of Revelation, Steve Curtis 2009 Cape Fear School of Discipleship

The Potential For Evangelical Application In The Shi’A Islamic Doctrine Of Revelation, Steve Curtis

Steve Curtis, PhD

Evangelization in the Muslim world is a critical part of the Church’s fulfillment of the Great Commission. In any evangelization strategy, it is helpful to identify a concept or a point of contact where the Christian may begin to introduce the lost person to Christ. Apart from Islam’s monotheism, each of the contemporary expressions of Islam offers such points of contact for evangelism. Sunnis can relate to the strong, austere images of God; Sufis can relate to the mystical or relational aspects of Christianity. How, then, can Christians find a point of reference with Shi’a Islam? The ...

Between Text And Film: A Contextual Bifurcation In Feliz Ano Velho, Andrew M. Ray 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Between Text And Film: A Contextual Bifurcation In Feliz Ano Velho, Andrew M. Ray

Andrew M. Ray

The present study problematizes the results in character development due to differences in the use of historical and amorous contexts between the text, Feliz Ano Velho (1982), and its film adaptation, Feliz ano vehlo: uma adaptação livre da obra de Marcelo R. Paiva. Whereas Marcelo Rubens Paiva (1959) constructs a textual mosaic of life experiences based on historical and political frames of reference within his discourse, the film version of Feliz Ano Velho (1987), directed by Roberto Gervitz (1957), utilizes relationships between genders as the foundation of the story. The historical-amorous contextual hierarchy established in the text is thus inverted ...


Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley 2009 DePaul University

Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

Global poverty has received significant attention in the past decade, particularly after the adoption of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals in 2002. Commentators and ethicists like Peter Singer have long held that the wealthy of the world have an obligation to help the poor. While the sentiments may be positive, there are real harms that have come from this kind of top down thinking. Subsidiarity, to the contrary, is a much more realistic and morally tenable approach to global poverty.
