Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel 2010 Copenhagen University

Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

A closer look at the Muhammad cartoon crisis illuminates some of the key issues that were, and continue to be, at stake for the various actors in the public contestations over the legitimate place of Muslims (and the Islamic tradition) in Danish society. Using a conceptual framework developed by Axel Honneth, I suggest in this article that the cartoon crisis is part of an ongoing struggle for recognition in Denmark, through which the terms by which Muslims residing in Denmark are recognized as legitimate citizens/residents of Danish society are negotiated—and on which Muslims may recognize the demands of ...


Epistemic Islamophobia And Colonial Social Sciences, Ramón Grosfoguel 2010 University of California - Berkeley

Epistemic Islamophobia And Colonial Social Sciences, Ramón Grosfoguel

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This article explores how epistemic racism shapes contemporary discussions on Islamophobia. Epistemic Racism is an underestimated aspect of racism. The first part is a discussion about epistemic racism in the world-system. The second part is on the Western male hegemonic identity politics and the fundamentalist responses to it. The third part is on epistemic Islamophobia and the social sciences.


Islamophobia: A French Specificity In Europe?, Vincent Gessier 2010 Research Institute on the Arabic and Muslim World

Islamophobia: A French Specificity In Europe?, Vincent Gessier

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This paper argues that France is not more Islamophobic than other European countries. An ‘institutional Islamophobia’ or ‘State Islamophobia’ doesn’t really exist. However, the relation toward Islam is complex and determined by the “missionary mind” which persists by wishing to emancipate Muslims from their religion, perceived as an archaic, obscurantist and despotic phenomenon. French society specificity expresses itself in the tendency to ‘ideologize’ Islam. In front of the ‘danger’ of the political Islam (fundamentalism, radical Islam, Islamoterrorism…), French institutions would like to promote their own conception of a ‘regenerated Islam’ (comparable to the ‘regenerated Judaism’ during the Third Republic ...


Terror And The Politics Of Containment: Analysing The Discourse Of The ‘War On Terror’ And Its Workings Of Power, Farish A. Noor 2010 Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Terror And The Politics Of Containment: Analysing The Discourse Of The ‘War On Terror’ And Its Workings Of Power, Farish A. Noor

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Since 11 September 2001, the discourse of the ‘war on terror’ has become one of the most over-used and hegemonic discourses that has shaped domestic politics and international relations worldwide. This paper focuses on the workings of the discourse of ‘anti-terrorism’ and its linkages to power structures and the institutions that are supported by them. It will look at how the discourse of the ‘war on terror’ has been used by the governments of Southeast Asia and Western Europe in particular in relation to oppositional forces, both legal and extra-legal; and its wider implications on the development of democracy and ...


Unconscious Islamophobia, Gema Martín-Muñoz 2010 Universidad Autonoma de Madrid

Unconscious Islamophobia, Gema Martín-Muñoz

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Our historical relationship with Islam has accumulated a whole series of negative perceptions dominated by prejudices and stereotypes. We have internalized a reductionist and monolithic image of “us” and of “them” (the two “cultures”). It is as if these were closed universes in which millions of human beings are designated as “Western” or “Muslims” and represent alien and even antagonistic cultures. This concept of “cultures” in relations between the Muslim world and “us” is a product of a Western construct in which “Islam” and therefore all individuals within Islam are fictitiously represented, labelled ideologically as a dominant global force, in ...


Constructing The Innocence Of The First Textual Encounter, Alex Mueller, Cheryl Nixon, Rajini Srikanth 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

Constructing The Innocence Of The First Textual Encounter, Alex Mueller, Cheryl Nixon, Rajini Srikanth

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Three faculty members from UMass Boston's English Department—a team responsible for the department’s M.A. course on the Teaching of Literature and for the training of novice teachers of literature—examine the complex process of reading texts that they teach as if they are encountering them as their students do, for the first time. Accepting the proposition that reading texts in the classroom places the student at the center of an experience that originates in the instructor, they suggest that teachers must be prepared to relinquish their “expert” attachment to the text by defamiliarizing it to themselves ...

The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye

Africana Studies Faculty Publication Series

This paper argues that, contrary to widespread opinion, the poetry of first generation, postcolonial, modernist Nigerian poet, Michael J. C. Echeruo, draws some of its core and defining tropes from indigenous African system of thought and symbolism. The much maligned early poem "Sophia" is subjected to line-by-line close-reading to illustrate this argument. The analysis suggests that, as a matter of fact, "Sophia" can be read as a portal to Echeruo's poetic corpus as a whole.


Harm Or Mere Inconvenience? Denying Women Emergency Contraception, Carolyn McLeod 2010 The University of Western Ontario

Harm Or Mere Inconvenience? Denying Women Emergency Contraception, Carolyn Mcleod

Philosophy Publications

This paper addresses the likely impact on women of being denied emergency contraception (EC) by pharmacists who conscientiously refuse to provide it. A common view—defended by Elizabeth Fenton and Loren Lomasky, among others—is that these refusals inconvenience rather than harm women so long as the women can easily get EC somewhere else nearby. I argue from a feminist perspective that the refusals harm women even when they can easily get EC somewhere else nearby.


Teaching And Learning With Traditional Indigenous Knowledge In The Tall Grass Plains, Kathleen J. Martin, James J. Garrett 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Teaching And Learning With Traditional Indigenous Knowledge In The Tall Grass Plains, Kathleen J. Martin, James J. Garrett

Ethnic Studies

This article presents the work of American Indian and Indigenous college students in the United States on a native and heritage plant restoration project at a tribal college. It supports an interdisciplinary approach to studying the natural sciences, and situates the acquisition of knowledge within Dakota oral tradition. Students learned about the grass plains environment and Dakota environmental ethics, sovereignty and values from Traditional Indigenous and Ecological Knowledge (TIKlTEK). The "plant tribes" helped their human caretakers learn important qualities of care and respect. Also included is an educational model based on the project and recommendations for the use of narrative ...

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson 2010 Kennesaw State University

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson

KSU Press Legacy Project

"Running of Full" is a well-written account of twin sisters, Ruth and Ruby Crawford, who in their long lives made marks in every field of endeavor they undertook. Through the proverbial glass ceilings in law, banking, accounting, they rose to be among the first women bank officers in the country. Their stewardship and devotion to community and national causes, like the Humane Society, are legend. Often called "the 24-hour Crawfords," Ruth and Ruby were known as much for their prodigious energy as they were for their wit and charm.


Haitian Protestant Views Of Vodou And The Importance Of Karacte Within A Transnational Social Field, Bertin M. Louis Jr. 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Haitian Protestant Views Of Vodou And The Importance Of Karacte Within A Transnational Social Field, Bertin M. Louis Jr.

Anthropology Publications and Other Works

The ways that some Haitian Protestants view of Vodou and the importance of karactè (character) have emerged as two interrelated and fundamental aspects of Haitian Protestant worldview within a transnational social field. First, many Haitian Protestants believe the practice of Vodou since the Bwa Kayiman ceremony is the main reason why Haiti is mired in a socioeconomic crisis. Second, the development of a Haitian individual’s karactè through Haitian Protestantism is seen by a growing number of Haitian Protestants in the Bahamas, Haiti and the United States as a remedy that can transform the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere ...

Faculty Works: Music Therapy

This study explores what occurred between a mother and her son with high-functioning autism who were seen for 24 sessions at the Nordoff-Robbins Center for Music Therapy at New York University. This was the first time that a parent and child had been seen in music therapy sessions at the center in which the parent was an active participant. The study was conducted one and one-half years after the sessions had concluded. The prima-ry data sources included the 24 sessions on videotape, transcripts from interviews with the mother and each therapist, therapist index sheets and notes, treatment summary re-ports, and ...
