Linguistic Landscape Of Main Streets In Bosnia And Herzegovina, 2015 East Tennessee State University
Linguistic Landscape Of Main Streets In Bosnia And Herzegovina, Rachel E. Lay
Undergraduate Honors Theses
After the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991, Bosnia and Herzegovina erupted into ethnic conflict and ultimately genocide. Nearly 100,000 people, mainly Bosniaks, died in the Bosnian War. Two decades later, the violence has ended but the conflict is still present in Bosnia; the societal segregation of the 1995 Dayton Accords, intended only as an immediate solution to the violence, still stands. Population and language distribution are evidence of this segregation. Bosnia’s two entities are home to two different ethnic majorities: Serbs in the Republika Srpska and Bosniaks in the Federation of BiH. In an environment so sensitive that ...
Themes Of Self-Laceration Towards A Modicum Of Control In Nineteenth Century Russia As Expressed By Dostoevsky In The Brothers Karamazov, 2015 East Tennessee State University
Themes Of Self-Laceration Towards A Modicum Of Control In Nineteenth Century Russia As Expressed By Dostoevsky In The Brothers Karamazov, Jonathan Ball
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
The majority of the academic discourse surrounding Dostoevsky and his epic, The Brothers Karamazov, has been directed toward the philosophic and religious implications of his characters. Largely overlooked, however, is the theme of laceration. In the greater scope of laceration stands the topic of self-laceration. Self-laceration refers to the practice of causing harm to the self in a premeditated and specifically emotionally destructive fashion. The cause of this experience is varied and expressed in as many ways as there are individuals. The struggle in the Russian psyche between viewing the world as fatalistic or as more of an existential experience ...

On Record: Soundscapes As Metaphor And Physical Manifestation Of Memory In Early Holocaust Novels And Contemporary Criticism, 2015 Florida International University
On Record: Soundscapes As Metaphor And Physical Manifestation Of Memory In Early Holocaust Novels And Contemporary Criticism, Mariane Stanev
FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This thesis compares two perspectives on the production of Holocaust memory: a novel that leads up to The Holocaust in Britain and one that reflects the hindsight perspective of a liberator in the Soviet Union. The novels are Virginia Woolf’s BETWEEN THE ACTS and Vasily Grossman’s LIFE AND FATE. The analysis offers a locus of analysis for the diasporic literary energy created by the catastrophe in the 20th and 21st centuries. The project offers a theorized standpoint on the role of literature on official historical archives. Proposing a method through which contemporary readers can engage the ...

Faith, Doubt, And Chiasmus In Krzysztof Kieslowski's Decalogue I, 2014 University of Saskatchewan
Faith, Doubt, And Chiasmus In Krzysztof Kieslowski's Decalogue I, William Bartley
Journal of Religion & Film
This article proposes a reinterpretation of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s exploration of the first commandment in Decalogue I. It argues that the narrative structure of the story is chiastic—i.e., inversely parallel—which follows from recognizing for the first time the crucial role that Irena, the devoutly Catholic sister of Krzysztof, a professor and religious skeptic, plays in the story. The pattern of inverse parallelism (chiasmus) emerges as Krzysztof and Irena respond separately to the tragic death of Krzysztof’s son, Pawel: as Krzysztof’s skepticism gives way to a new faith in God, inversely and unexpectedly Irena’s faith ...
Marriage In The Short Stories Of Chekhov, 2014 Brigham Young University
Marriage In The Short Stories Of Chekhov, Mark Richard Purves
CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture
In his article "Marriage in the Short Stories of Chekhov" Mark Richard Purves explores Anton Chekhov's often occurring depiction of marriage. Purves posits that Chekhov's depiction of the experience of marriage raises important ontological questions about the core features of family life such as what it means to be a husband, what it means to be a wife, and the degree of relatedness between them. Chekhov elaborates on what he sees as matrimony's central antinomy, namely that the wedding of one individual to another produces loneliness, an absence of intimacy, and a kind of alienation so acute ...
Hotel Bukovyna, 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Hotel Bukovyna, Rebecca Ann Bosshart
UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones
This collection of short stories and first chapter of a novella take place in the historical area of Bukovyna, the beech tree land, partly located in Chernivetska region, western Ukraine. On the edge of it, or under it, or traveling to and from it, in contemporary time.

The occupants: the outsider looking in and around. Outsiders looking at other outsiders. An outsider being welcomed ...

The Moralist’S Perspective: An Analysis Of A Contemporary Reader’S Connection To Leo Tolstoy’S Themes Of Life As Presented In Five Selected Works, Kelly Almeter
Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects
For my honors capstone I examined the development of Tolstoy’s philosophies and how they are illustrated throughout his literature. I have compared two of Tolstoy’s works written before his theological conversion: “The Cossacks” and Anna Karenina, to three short stories written after, “The Death of Ivan Ilych”, “The Kreutzer Sonata,” and “Master and Man”. As time passed, the moralistic undertones of Tolstoy’s works became more apparent. His literature, whether short story or novel, includes a vast number of complex themes ranging from topics such as death and infidelity to a spiritual awakening and nature. As a result ...

Panel 10: "Complex Social Memory: Revolving Social Roles In Holodomor Survivor Testimony, 1986-1988", Johnathon Vsetecka
Phi Alpha Theta Nu Alpha & UW History Club
In 1932 and 1933, Ukraine experienced a man-made famine that destroyed between three and five million people in less than two years. Scholars, members of the Ukrainian diaspora, and others now refer to the event as the Holodomor (death by starvation). The collectivization process brought upon Ukraine by the Soviet Union intended to procure grain from Ukraine’s fertile soil and sell it to Western markets at an increased in price. The result was disastrous and the famine left many dead due to disease, hunger, and malnutrition. Furthermore, the famine disrupted Ukrainian social life and forced people out of their ...
Martin Luther: Vater Einer Allgemeinen Sprache? Martin Luther: Father Of A Common Language?, 2014 Illinois Wesleyan University
Martin Luther: Vater Einer Allgemeinen Sprache? Martin Luther: Father Of A Common Language?, Annika Ewaldz, '14, Adam Woodis, Faculty Advisor
John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference
Martin Luther is well known for his 95 Theses, in which he rejects the Catholic practice of selling indulgences; but it was his groundbreaking translation of the Bible into German that instigated the standardization of the German language. After his excommunication, Luther was in hiding in the Wartburg Castle, where he translated his Bible into a vernacular and cohesive form of the German language. Many different dialects were spoken throughout Germany at the time making communication between regions difficult. Luther’s translation soon became the most influential Bible in Germany and was disseminated quickly due to the recently invented printing ...
One State, One People, One Language: A Comparison Of Chinese And Soviet Langauge Policy In The 20th Century, 2014 College of William and Mary
One State, One People, One Language: A Comparison Of Chinese And Soviet Langauge Policy In The 20th Century, Rachel Faith
In line with Michael Gorham’s argument in his monograph Speaking in Soviet Tongues that recent trends in the sociology of language have come to link language with issues of power and authority, this thesis argues that the cultural administrators in the Soviet Union and the PRC approached language culture and development with the intention of using it as a means of state building. A case study of the Mongolian language and its interaction with Soviet and Chinese policy shows this process in detail.
The Holy Fool In Late Tarkovsky, 2014 Virginia Tech
The Holy Fool In Late Tarkovsky, Robert O. Efird
Journal of Religion & Film
This article analyzes the Russian cultural and religious phenomenon of holy foolishness (iurodstvo) in director Andrei Tarkovsky’s last two films, Nostalghia and Sacrifice. While traits of the holy fool appear in various characters throughout the director’s oeuvre, a marked change occurs in the films made outside the Soviet Union. Coincident with the films’ increasing disregard for spatiotemporal consistency and sharper eschatological focus, the character of the fool now appears to veer off into genuine insanity, albeit with a seemingly greater sensitivity to a visionary or virtual world of the spirit and explicit messianic task.
