Rightly Or For Ill: The Ethics Of Remembering And Forgetting, Alison Nicole Crane Reinheld '93 2010 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Rightly Or For Ill: The Ethics Of Remembering And Forgetting, Alison Nicole Crane Reinheld '93

Doctoral Dissertations

Forgetting a birthday, a wedding anniversary, a beloved child's school play or a dear colleague's important accomplishments is often met with blame, whereas remembering them can engender praise. Are we in fact blameworthy or praiseworthy for such remembering and forgetting? When ought we to remember, in the ethical sense of 'ought'? And ought we in some cases to allow ourselves to forget?

These are the questions that ground this philosophical work. In fact, we so often unreflectively assign moral blame and praise to ourselves and others for memory behaviors that this faculty, and moral responsibility for it, deserve ...


Second-Generation West Indian Women, Television And The Dialogical Self, Kamille Gentles-Peart 2010 Roger Williams University

Second-Generation West Indian Women, Television And The Dialogical Self, Kamille Gentles-Peart

Feinstein College of Arts & Sciences Faculty Publications

Employing the Bakhtinian concept of the dialogical self, this article examines how second-generation West Indian immigrant women negotiate their multiple cultural and national positions in the United States. Further-more, it examines the manner in which the American media, particularly television, are reflective and constitutive of this process of identity formation. The article speaks to the theme of the journal issue in several ways. It highlights the polyphonic voices in the individual, and how these “selves” influence and are influenced by the cultural communities to which the individual belongs. With the “third world” immigrant as its subject, the article also necessarily ...

Women, The Recited Qur’An, And Islamic Music In Indonesia, Anne K. Rasmussen 2010 College of William and Mary

Women, The Recited Qur’An, And Islamic Music In Indonesia, Anne K. Rasmussen

Books

Women, the Recited Qur'an, and Islamic Music in Contemporary Indonesia takes readers to the heart of religious musical praxis in Indonesia, home to the largest Muslim population in the world. Anne K. Rasmussen explores a rich public soundscape, where women recite the divine texts of the Qur'an, and where an extraordinary diversity of Arab-influenced Islamic musical styles and genres, also performed by women, flourishes. Based on unique and revealing ethnographic research beginning at the end of Suharto's "New Order" and continuing into the era of "Reformation," the book considers the powerful.

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher 2010 Institute of Technology, Tallaght

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher

Articles

The name Pierre Joannon is synonymous with Irish studies and with Franco-Irish relations. I can think of few, if any, people who are more worthy recipients of this beautifully presented Festschrift than the Honorary French Irish Consul, scholar and former President of the Ireland Fund de France. You get some idea of his stature from the list of contributors to this book: two former Taoisigh, Garret FitzGerald and John Bruton, two Nobel Laureates, John Hume and Seamus Heaney, poets Brendan Kennelly and John Montague, a host of historians including Dermot Keogh, Joe Lee, Eunan O’Halpin and Kevin Whelan, distinguished ...

The Visions Of Lena Younger Created By Lorraine Hansberry In A Raisin In The Sun, Lizandra Gomes 2010 Bridgewater State University

The Visions Of Lena Younger Created By Lorraine Hansberry In A Raisin In The Sun, Lizandra Gomes

Undergraduate Review

This is one chapter of a full Honors’ Thesis entitled “The Visions of Women Created by Three Major Female African American Playwrights of the Twentieth Century: Georgia Douglas Johnson, Lorraine Hansberry, and Suzan-Lori Parks”. This chapter addresses the vision of Lena Younger created by Lorraine Hansberry in A Raisin in the Sun. It analyses the vision of African American women emerging through the character of Lena Younger, during the Civil Rights Movement by employing traditional dramaturgical methodology, including facets of Literary Structural Analysis, and Stanislavskian Analysis. This study in its whole will, thus, demonstrate how the self-perceived image of African ...


Reality, Skewed, Kathleen Camerlin 2010 Bridgewater State University

Reality, Skewed, Kathleen Camerlin

Undergraduate Review

Don DeLillo’s novel White Noise explores basic human connections and illustrates how they shift when viewed through the lens of post-modernity. The protagonist, Jack Gladney, tries to validate and substantiate his own existence through the connections he forges not only with his job and studies but also with his family, attempting to find meaning in the way his relatives interact with each other and their post modern world, where it is “no longer possible to distinguish meaningfully between a generality embedded in life and a generality represented in representations of life” (Frow 420). In this fracturing, consumer-driven, postmodern world ...


Domination, Individuality, And Moral Chaos: Nietzsche’S Will To Power, Angel Cooper 2010 Bridgewater State University

Domination, Individuality, And Moral Chaos: Nietzsche’S Will To Power, Angel Cooper

Undergraduate Review

One of the most well known, but deeply debated, ideas presented by the philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, is the will to power. Scholars have provided a variety of interpretations for what Nietzsche means by this concept. In this paper, I argue that, under each interpretation, Nietzsche may still face what I call, the problem of moral chaos, or the problem of endorsing the claim that immoral acts, such as murder and torture, are justifiable as they exemplify the human will towards power over others. I ultimately argue that Nietzsche’s philosophy avoids this problem: though Nietzsche proposes it is possible to ...

Flower Symbolism As Female Sexual Metaphor, Andrea Frownfelter 2010 Eastern Michigan University

Flower Symbolism As Female Sexual Metaphor, Andrea Frownfelter

Senior Honors Theses

The watercolor paintings that I created from September 2009 to March 2010 use flowers as metaphorical subject matter to address issues and emotions associated with the topic of female sexuality. My goal was to use the long-standing tradition of flowers as symbols of female genitalia (which will be thoroughly explained in part two of this thesis) to allude to my personal attitudes, experiences, observations, and worries in a manner that would be easier for me to express and less abrasive for my audience to accept. Creating these watercolors was certainly therapeutic for me; I hope that other women who have ...
