You Can’T Be Nonviolent Without Violence: The Rainbow Family’S Nonkilling Nomadic Utopia And Its Survival Of Persistent State Violence, Michael I. Niman Ph.D. 2009 Buffalo State College

You Can’T Be Nonviolent Without Violence: The Rainbow Family’S Nonkilling Nomadic Utopia And Its Survival Of Persistent State Violence, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.

Michael I Niman Ph.D.

Since 1972, the Rainbow Family of Living Light, a nonhierarchical nomadic community, has been holding large temporary gatherings in remote forests around the world to pray for world peace and to create a model of a functioning utopian society. Wherever and whenever they gather, the temporary Rainbow city remains essentially unchanged, modeling what anarchist theorist Hakim Bey calls the Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ). Revolutions, Bey writes, seek permanent change and, in doing so, lead to violence and martyrdom. Revolutionaries aim to hold territory. The TAZ, by contrast, does not directly engage the state, but instead “liberates an area (of land ...


Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Everyone knows that the ba institution, the Jou Kings’ delegation of power to a series of strong vassals, was important in Spring and Autumn China.1 Unfortunately for this consensus, the Chun/Chyou (CC), our primary source, does not mention the ba institution. The later Dzwo Jwan (DJ) does mention it, and uses three different terms for it: mv ng-ju, [hou]-bwo, and ba! . None of these terms appears in the CC. I find that the three DJ terms reflect three stages in the evolution of the ba theory, and that the theory is not an 07th century historical fact ...


Lechem Hara (Bad Bread), Lechem Tov (Good Bread): Survival And Sacrifice During The Holocaust, Carolyn S. Ellis 2009 University of South Florida

Lechem Hara (Bad Bread), Lechem Tov (Good Bread): Survival And Sacrifice During The Holocaust, Carolyn S. Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

In Judaism, human nature is understood as existing on a spectrum between yetzer hara (evil inclination) and yetzer tov (good inclination). Jews struggle to suppress the yetzer hara and exercise the yetzer tov. Based on an oral history interview and co-created by a survivor of the Holocaust and a researcher, this story focuses on bread (lechem) and hunger in a Polish ghetto. The narrative encourages reflection about good and evil and about the tangled intermingling of the generosity of self-sacrifice and the instinctive drive for survival.


Holiness And Impurity In The Torah And The Quran: Differences Within A Common Typology, David M. Freidenreich 2009 Colby College

Holiness And Impurity In The Torah And The Quran: Differences Within A Common Typology, David M. Freidenreich

David M. Freidenreich

In sharp contrast to the Torah’s hierarchical conception of society, the Quran articulates an egalitarian worldview in which all humanity has equal access to the holiness that comes from being in relationship with God. Quranic egalitarianism serves to undermine biblically-grounded Jewish and Christian claims to elevated status. The significant differences in quranic and biblical discourse about both holiness and the antithetical state of impurity, however, can best be understood as existing within the framework of a common typology. Both the Torah and the Quran distinguish between impurity that results from physiological events and impurity caused by sin. These works ...


Postmodernism, Processing, And The Profession: Towards A Theoretical Reading Of Minimal Standards, Melanie Griffin 2009 University of South Florida

Postmodernism, Processing, And The Profession: Towards A Theoretical Reading Of Minimal Standards, Melanie Griffin

Melanie Griffin

While the ramifications of minimal standards processing for practice are well-documented, the theoretical questions which Greene and Meissner's 2005 article "More Product, Less Process" raises are not. This article seeks to address the broader ideological and theoretical questions involved in recent minimal standards processing recommendations through analysis of Greene and Meissner’s original article and the immediate responses and case studies which it generated, in order to relate this body of literature to theory-driven notions of archival administration.4 By identifying theoretical issues in writings on MPLP rather than focusing on practice alone, it is possible to move beyond ...

Enfiefment Renewal In Lu, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Three times in the Chun/Chyou chronicle, the Jou King confers a mandate (ming ) on a Lu ruler. The details of these incidents shed light on the nature of Jou enfiefment, as it persisted after the loss of Jou military power in 0771.


Mwodz 17-19 "Against War", A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Mwodz 17-19 "Against War", A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

The MZ 17-19 essays expound a well-known and characteristic tenet of Micianism. They share with MZ 14-16 the fact that each essay is twice the length of the preceding (successively 425, 1,172, and 2,016 words).1 As a supplement to my previous studies,2 I here consider the structure and rhetorical strategy of each essay, to show that (1) each is complete in itself, in further refutation of the fragment theory, and that (2) the series is developmental, in further refutation of the idea that they are parallel but geographically separate versions of the same thing.3

¿Es El Mismo Inca? Figura Del Inca En La Nueva Corónica De Guamán Poma De Ayala Y Los Comentarios Reales De Garcilaso De La Vega, Americo Mendoza-Mori 2009 University of Pennsylvania

¿Es El Mismo Inca? Figura Del Inca En La Nueva Corónica De Guamán Poma De Ayala Y Los Comentarios Reales De Garcilaso De La Vega, Americo Mendoza-Mori

Americo Mendoza-Mori

Desde el proceso de escritura hasta en sus interpretaciones sobre el mundo andino, las obras del Inca Garcilaso
y Guaman Poma ofrecen diferentes perspectivas que el presente trabajo intentará exponer, específicamente en lo relativo a la construcción de la figura del Inca.
El personaje del Inca según los Comentarios reales aparece con el ente ordenador d cual se inten  equiparar con el esquema occidental para finalmente ideali r! . En  cambio la Nueva Corónica  apuesta  por deconstruir hasta cierto punto esta imagen idealizada en pos de definir la cosmovisión andina de manera heterogénea y descentrada.
Mediante un análisis comparativo, verificaremos la ...

Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

From the 9th-century conversion to Christianity until the 11th century, the ecclesiastical art and architecture of the Serbs, both Orthodox and Roman Catholic, shared the concurrent accomplishments of the Croats, Latins, and Greeks. All of these groups cohabited the territories between the rivers Bojana and Cetina in Duklja (Zeta, Montenegro), Zahumlje (Herzegovina), and their littoral. Wall *paintings, donor *portraits, inscriptions in Greek and Latin, and architectural *sculpture on *windows, portals, capitals, *chancel screens, *ciboria, and baptismal fonts, reveal influences of pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, and Byzantine models. Instructive examples come from the 9th-century *rotunda of St. Triphon at Kotor (809?), replaced by ...


Art And Architecture: Russia, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Russia, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Receiving Christianity only in 988/9, the East Slavic Rus' expressly appropriated art and architecture based on Byzantine models and elaborated their own styles. *Kiev, *Novgorod, and *Vladimir (Suzdalia) define the major foci of Rus' accomplishments in the pre-Mongolian period, before the 1230s. Only after the battle at *Kulikovo (1380) did monumental arts revive. And only when Prince Ivan the Great (r. 1462–1505) commissioned architects Aristotele Fioravanti and Alevisio Novi to work in the *Kremlin did the Italian Renaissance significantly influence Russian architecture.
