Movable Pillars: Organizing Dance 1956-1978, Katja Kolcio 2009 Wesleyan University

Movable Pillars: Organizing Dance 1956-1978, Katja Kolcio

Katja Kolcio Ph.D.

Movable Pillars traces the development of dance as scholarly inquiry over the course of the 20th century, and describes the social-political factors that facilitated a surge of interest in dance research in the period following World War II. This surge was reflected in the emergence of six key dance organizations: the American Dance Guild, the Congress on Research in Dance, the American Dance Therapy Association, the American College Dance Festival Association, the Dance Critics Association, and the Society of Dance History Scholars. Kolcio argues that their founding between the years 1956 and 1978 marked a new period of collective action ...

El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

El mito de la violencia religiosa consiste en creer que la “religión” es un fenómeno endémico de todas las culturas y épocas de la humanidad, separable de otros ámbitos de la actividad del hombre que, como la política o la economía, son calificados de “seculares”. Que es, además, particularmente proclive al absolutismo, la disgregación y la irracionalidad, y por consiguiente a la violencia. Cavanaugh demuestra en esta obra, argumentando a partir de fuentes históricas, teológicas y jurídicas, que la “religión” no es una realidad transcultural y transhistórica ni se puede separar de las demás esferas de la actividad del hombre ...

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale 2009 Western Michigan University

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the character of the text of Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302, a series of excerpts from the four canonical Gospels in (with one exception) biblical order preceded by an incomplete set of canon tables, a manuscript produced in England in the mid-11th century. Concludes that it was probably created as a private devotional book for a high-ranking Benedictine monk, a prayer book intended to resemble a Gospel book and to present a full account of the life of Christ.

Christopher Marlowe The Craftsman: Lives, Stage, And Page, M. Stapleton 2009 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Christopher Marlowe The Craftsman: Lives, Stage, And Page, M. Stapleton

M. L. Stapleton

Contributions to this volume explore the idea of Marlowe as a working artist, in keeping with John Addington Symonds' characterization of him as a "sculptor-poet." Throughout the body of his work-including not only the poems and plays, but also his forays into translation and imitation-a distinguished company of established and emerging literary scholars traces how Marlowe conceives an idea, shapes and refines it, then remakes and remodels it, only to refashion it further in his writing process.

These essays necessarily overlap with one another in the categories of lives, stage, and page, which signals their interdependent nature regarding questions of ...


Charles Tilly As A Theorist Of Nationalism, Rogers Brubaker 2009 UCLA

Charles Tilly As A Theorist Of Nationalism, Rogers Brubaker

Rogers Brubaker

This paper considers Charles Tilly as an important but underappreciated theorist of nationalism. Tilly’s theory of nationalism emerged from the “bellicist” strand of his earlier work on state-formation and later incorporated a concern with performance, stories, and cultural modeling. Yet despite the turn to culture in Tilly’s later work, his theory of nationalism remained state-centered, materialist, and instrumentalist—a source of both its power and its limitations.
