Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

The “couple standing before offerings” pose first appeared at Naga-ed-Deir in the First Intermediate Period and gradually rose in popularity at that site. Its appearance at Thebes in the late Eleventh Dynasty coincided with reunification; similarly, it first occurred at Abydos at the beginning of the Twelfth Dynasty, as Amenemhet I was consolidating his control of the north. As the Twelfth Dynasty progressed, however, stelae production became more and more standardized, and the pose ultimately dropped out of use. Thus, as this paper will show, tracing the rise and spread of the “couple standing before offerings” pose enables us to ...

The Historical Value Of The Chun/Chyou, A. Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Historical Value Of The Chun/Chyou, A. Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

The Spring and Autumn period (late 08th to early 05th centuries) is of interest in its own right, and for Chinese historiography in general. I here argue that the Chun/Chyou (CC) or “Spring and Autumn” text, ostensibly a Lu court chronicle, is the best, and the only primary, source for the period.1 I also dispute the competing claim of the Dzwo Jwan (DJ), which some view as a fuller, and a more accurate, account of the Spring and Autumn centuries.2

Bringing Filmmaking Into The English Language Arts Classroom, Bruce Robbins 2009 Boise State University

Bringing Filmmaking Into The English Language Arts Classroom, Bruce Robbins

Bruce Robbins

Like many English teachers, I recognize the need to adapt to the world of new media, not only to stay connected to the lives of students, but also because, as the NCTE statement goes on to point out, "with multiple opportunities for student expression in the English language arts classroom, these nonprint media offer new realms for teachers of composition" and, I would add, for language and literature. When I summoned the strength to peer over the barrier of learning new technologies (as I am quite comfortable with the old ones), I caught a glimmer of new possibilities for teaching ...

“Foreword”, Marc Prou 2009 University of Massachusetts Boston

“Foreword”, Marc Prou

Marc E. Prou

The Haitian Creole Language is the first book that deals broadly with a language that has too long lived in the shadow of French. With chapters contributed by the leading scholars in the study of Creole, it provides information on this language's history; structure; and use in education, literature, and social interaction. Although spoken by virtually all Haitians, Creole was recognized as the co-official language of Haiti only a little over twenty years ago. The Haitian Creole Language provides essential information for professionals, other service providers, and Creole speakers who are interested in furthering the use of Creole in ...
