“Who Now Shall Believe That Liar, Merlin?”: The Prophecies Of Merlin In History, Megan L. Cairns 2019 Thompson Rivers University

“Who Now Shall Believe That Liar, Merlin?”: The Prophecies Of Merlin In History, Megan L. Cairns

Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics

This research article examines Merlin's prophecies and how their political use has shifted from one of belief and of direct political significance, to general disbelief. It examines how the use of prophecy exploited the prestige of King Arthur and Merlin. Tactics used to take advantage of this prestige ranged from rulers claiming blood relation to King Arthur to learned men interpreting existing prophecies. Sources, such as Wace, Geoffrey of Monmouth, and modern day novelists, are used to illustrate the prophecies’ evolution from the twelfth to the twentieth century and what it means.


The Imperfect Warrior: Disability And Surgery On The Medieval English Battlefield, Miles S. A. Buckminster 2019 Thompson Rivers University

The Imperfect Warrior: Disability And Surgery On The Medieval English Battlefield, Miles S. A. Buckminster

Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics

This paper questions the assumption that medieval European medicine was unsophisticated and ineffective, unable to aid injured or disabled warriors. Three instances from English history refute this: the case of King Richard III, who was an accomplished warrior despite having scoliosis; the fact that King Henry V was able to recover fully from a serious battle wound; and the existence of a common soldier from the Wars of the Roses who had a similar, successful recovery. Historical evidence and the work of modern scholars, like Tobias Capwell, point to many cases of successful battlefield surgeries and supportive technology. When fitted ...

Touchy Topics: The Imperial Public Anxiety And Null Curriculum Of Sexuality In Late Nineteenth- And Early Twentieth-Century Britain, Landen J. Kleisinger

Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics

At the height of British imperial power and global influence in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century, Britain’s populace and intellectuals alike frequently saw one fitting comparison in patriotically describing their Empire: the might of Britain, in their eyes, resembled that of the Roman Empire. To the dismay of many, however, such a comparison extended not only to Rome’s dominance but its demise as well. The fall of Rome was described in Britain as being the result of moral degradation, paralyzing the Empire from within. With the rise of social Darwinism, moreover, the strength of the British ...


The Colonial Violence Of “Non-Violent” Resistance, Tanya Dushatska 2019 University of Toronto

The Colonial Violence Of “Non-Violent” Resistance, Tanya Dushatska

Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics

In his paper “On Violence,” Frantz Fanon argues for the crucial role of violence in achieving decolonization and asserts that the notion of “non-violent resistance” is introduced and upheld by those who are ultimately interested in preserving the capitalist colonial structure (Fanon 1;22). Fanon argues for the necessity of violence, claiming only violence can dislodge a regime that is itself established and maintained through violence, and that violence grants a sense of agency to the colonized people (2; 4; 6; 22; 10; 21; 51). I open this paper with an exposition and defence of Fanon’s two arguments for ...


Rewilding, Brian Sage 2019 Lesley University

Rewilding, Brian Sage

MFA in Visual Arts Theses

My current work is a continuation of the popular motif of urban decay influenced by artists, writers, scientists, and philosophers. It presents my belief that over the past two centuries our fast-paced, industrialized, technology-driven world has disconnected people from nature and from one another. While industrialization and technology have wrought numerous benefits, this disconnection has had devastating effects on the health and wellbeing of humans, as well as the health of the environment. My current work is an artistic interpretation inspired by the theme of the Rewilding movement. Rewilding is aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness ...

Art In The Trenches: Unofficial Art Of The First World War, Tim Clarke 2019 Wilfrid Laurier University

Art In The Trenches: Unofficial Art Of The First World War, Tim Clarke

Canadian Military History

Abstract: Scholarship in recent decades focusing on soldier experiences of the First World War have largely ignored soldier-produced artworks as access points into the experience of modern warfare. Though there has been work on official war artists and post-war artworks of soldiers turned artists, artwork produced during service in a non-official capacity has only featured in art history, where the artwork and artists feature as subjects, rather than as sources for understanding their experiences that contextualize their work. This paper makes a historiographical case for exploring this source-base, while also analyzing several selected works from unofficial First World War artists.
