Shame And Philosophy, Richard P. Hamilton 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Shame And Philosophy, Richard P. Hamilton

Philosophy Papers and Journal Articles

Shame is a ubiquitous and highly intriguing feature of human experience. It can motivate but it can also paralyse. It is something which one can legitimately demand of another, but is not usually experienced as a choice. Perpetrators of atrocities can remain defiantly immune to shame while their victims are racked by it. It would be hard to understand any society or culture without understanding the characteristic occasions upon which shame is expected and where it is mitigated. Yet, one can survey much of the literature in social and political theory over the last century and find barely a footnote ...


An Online Ethics Training Module For Public Relations Professionals: A Demonstration Project, Lee Anne Peck, Nancy J. Matchett 2010 University of Northern Colorado

An Online Ethics Training Module For Public Relations Professionals: A Demonstration Project, Lee Anne Peck, Nancy J. Matchett

Department of Philosophy Faculty Publications

Peer review of online courses can be done at a distance using a combination of asynchronous course visits and synchronous discussion with online meeting tools. This technology-mediated approach gives online faculty the opportunity to experience an unfamiliar course interface from a student's perspective, encourages a focus on design elements distinct from course content, and promotes a feeling of community. IT personnel can enhance this process by providing faculty with archived peer-review sessions and detailed "how to" instructions, while also facilitating their hands-on experience with new technologies.


Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko

Music Theory Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Frequently cited as being among Lou Harrison’s most important East-West fusions, the works for Indonesian gamelan and Western instruments have served as emblems of Harrison’s distinctive transcultural voice. Yet, as my research shows, treating these pieces as hybrids between East and West creates a limited frame for understanding Harrison’s compositional interests. While these pieces outwardly display his life-long interest in Asian musics and his penchant for combining disparate musical styles within a single composition, hidden beneath this timbral juxtaposition lies a compositional complexity far more essential to Harrison’s creative process. More than blending East and West ...


Poemas Del Caer—El Motivo Del Vértigo En Las Obras De Edgardo Dobry, Roxana Crisólogo Y Ylonca Nacidit-Perdomo, Ilka Kressner 2010 University at Albany, State University of New York

Poemas Del Caer—El Motivo Del Vértigo En Las Obras De Edgardo Dobry, Roxana Crisólogo Y Ylonca Nacidit-Perdomo, Ilka Kressner

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Faculty Scholarship

La poesía hispanoamericana actual, este “asunto tan vasto y heterogéneo” (Andrés Sánchez Robanya) es un fenómeno difícil de captar en su conjunto. No obstante, la crítica ha señalado algunos rasgos comunes de la producción lírica los últimos 20 años. Esos son, entre otros, el uso del habla coloquial, descripciones casi fenomenológicas del día a día en las grandes urbes o los barrios humildes y la inclusión de temas de actualidad, muchas veces expresados desde una óptica antiglobalizadora. Las denominaciones (en parte asignadas por los críticos, en parte de los poetas mismos) ponen en relieve el impacto de lo cotidiano y ...

Ecclesiastes Ii: Son Of The Philosopher, Bryan Furuness 2010 Butler University

Ecclesiastes Ii: Son Of The Philosopher, Bryan Furuness

On Earth As It Is

Some days I think the clouds are your eyes. Some days I think the birds are your voice. You laugh, chide, scatter thistle all over my lawn and screw up my grass as some kind of lesson I'll never understand because I don't speak bird.

The Miracle: Lullaby For Lost Children, Melanie Rae Thon

On Earth As It Is

Pink pyrola, trailing daisy—magenta flames of shooting stars, brilliant gold of glacier lilies.

Hush now, beloved.

The hummingbird comes to sip from foxglove and Sweet William, drinks from the hollyhock, opens the snapdragon.

Why are you afraid?


Decomposing Articles Of Faith, Melissa Pritchard 2010 Butler University

Decomposing Articles Of Faith, Melissa Pritchard

On Earth As It Is

In which Sister Pritchard, Scribbler Pritchard, Goody Pritchard holds forth:

Praise God

That God both does and does not uphold our Neighborhood Watch.

That God both is and is not a projection of our innermost desires and fears.

That God is a handyman, our prayers to Him a honey-do.


An Alternative Approach To Eng 1110 Introduction To The Study Of Literature, Clayton G MacKenzie 2010 Hong Kong Baptist University

An Alternative Approach To Eng 1110 Introduction To The Study Of Literature, Clayton G Mackenzie

Department of English Language and Literature Book Chapter

The project sought to implement a different approach to the teaching of ENG 1110 Introduction to the Study of Literature (a required English Major course in Semester 1). Customary approaches to the course have employed period studies, concentrating on texts of a particular period. Instead of focusing on period, the alternative approach focused on literary type (i.e. genre or topic). In drawing on this alternative approach, I hoped to provide a more useful framework for the study of literature at the beginning of the 21st century, taking into greater account, for example, the influence of electronic and non-print forms ...


Using Films In Teaching, Amy W S Lee 2010 Hong Kong Baptist University

Using Films In Teaching, Amy W S Lee

Department of English Language and Literature Book Chapter

Petrarch, a 14th century pioneer of humanistic education, promoted the idea that to study humanities is to study the principles which make us human, and a humanistic education is the education for a moral self. As a humanities teacher, my teaching aims not only at transferring to students the knowledge of the major great works in literary, philosophical, and artistic fields, but more at inspiring students’ reflective and critical consciousness towards these great works. In the attempt to find ways of engaging the students in class, I proposed to use films to facilitate the teaching of literary masterpieces and possibly ...


"Flying Is Changing Women!": Women Popularizers Of Commercial Aviation And The Renegotiation Of Traditional Gender And Technological Boundaries In The 1920s-30s, Emily K. Gibson 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

"Flying Is Changing Women!": Women Popularizers Of Commercial Aviation And The Renegotiation Of Traditional Gender And Technological Boundaries In The 1920s-30s, Emily K. Gibson

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

This thesis explores how the complex interplay between gender and technology significantly shaped the popularization of commercial aviation in the United States during the 1920s and 30s. As technological innovations improved both the safety and efficiency of airplanes during the early part of the twentieth century, commercial aviation industries increasingly worked to position flight as a viable means of mass transportation. In order to win the trust and money of potential passengers, however, industry proponents recognized the need to separate flight from its initial association with danger and masculine strength by convincing the general public of aviation’s safety and ...


John Chrysostom, Maruthas And Christian Evangelism In Sasanian Iran, Walter Stevenson 2010 University of Richmond

John Chrysostom, Maruthas And Christian Evangelism In Sasanian Iran, Walter Stevenson

Classical Studies Faculty Publications

Neither John Chrysostom’s efforts to evangelize in Sasanid Persia nor the conflict fought between Rome and Persia in 421 have drawn a great deal of attention.1 So this paper will attempt to navigate the 20 years from John’s initial efforts up to the outbreak of the war without much modern support. Beginning from a series of clues in ancient sources I will try to gather apparently unrelated narratives into a story of how John inadvertently contributed to the even that Kenneth Holum called ‘Pulcheria’s Crusade’. Not that this war earned any of the historical significance of ...
