The Imperial Legacy: An Examination Of The Trends Of Empire And Genocide From German Southwest Africa To The General Government, Laura Guebert 2018 Murray State University

The Imperial Legacy: An Examination Of The Trends Of Empire And Genocide From German Southwest Africa To The General Government, Laura Guebert

Scholars Week

This project is an examination of the correlations between imperial enterprises of the Second German Empire and the Nazi Reich through the lenses of global and imperial critiques. By studying the realities and experiences of German Southwest Africa, the Ober Ost, and Nazi-occupied Easter Europe, this paper attempts to identify the common elements of German imperialism: pathos, frantic improvisation, cognizance of contemporaries, and industrial modernity. To help elucidate these elements, this research studied the themes and theories developed by leading historians of modern German and Eastern European history, including Timothy Snyder, Ben Kiernan, Shelley Baranowski, Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius, and Christopher ...

Transformation Of The Russian “Leviathan” Over The Centuries, Andrei V. Grinëv 2017 University of North Georgia

Transformation Of The Russian “Leviathan” Over The Centuries, Andrei V. Grinëv

International Social Science Review

This article is devoted to analysis of the central figure of Russian history: the politarian state, which is a true “Leviathan” for Russian society and for the individual. From the author’s point of view the following pattern of Russian history can be shown: In the face of severe nature, natural and social disasters, external pressure, military and economic failures, blunders by the heads of state, Russian society, being a complex self-organizing system, chooses each time a politarian system as the only form of life suitable for survival under extreme conditions. The Russian elite also prefer politarism as the simplest ...

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor 2017 Iowa State University

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor

Kimberly E. Zarecor

Europe just after World War II was a damaged environment. Many of its cities had been devastated and people suffered tremendously across the continent. Millions were dead, millions displaced or sick, and millions more were being forcibly relocated to new territories during waves of expulsions. According to United Nations figures, more than 8.8 million housing units had been destroyed in eighteen European countries during the war; at least another 5.6 million units were uninhabitable. This represented one out of every nine units extant in 1939.2 By 1947, the Cold War was underway as the United States and ...


Tragedies Of The Holodomor: Give Me Bread Or Give Me Freedom, David Kirichenko 2017 University of Washington

Tragedies Of The Holodomor: Give Me Bread Or Give Me Freedom, David Kirichenko

Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship

To effectively analyze the dimensions of the Holodomor, this research paper provides the historical overview of the Ukrainian state and nationalist developments. The overview shows the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and later, the problem that it would pose for Soviet leaders. Besieged by national tragedies and centuries of conflict, the Ukrainian people had emerged as the Ukrainian People’s Republic and embraced independence during the chaos of WWI. The Ukrainian government would lose to the Soviet Union and be incorporated as part of the Soviet Socialist Republic. Once Stalin consolidated power, he sought to industrialize the Soviet Union. However, since ...

Around Sonja: On The First Russian Translation, Victor Fet 2017 Marshall University

Around Sonja: On The First Russian Translation, Victor Fet

Victor Fet

The first Russian translation of Wonderland was published anonymously in 1879 as Sonja v tsarstvie diva (Sonja in a Kingdom of Wonder, hereinafter referred to as Sonja).1 Deep Victorian mysteries surround it. Its translator remains unknown—but a hint from Lewis Carroll himself leads one to Russian aristocrats, patrons of the arts, and famous writers. Its readership is undocumented, but the faces of children who most likely first read this book are still well known in Russia today, having been painted by the most famous nineteenth-century Russian artists. Further, as one looks carefully at the text itself, one finds ...


Beheading First: On Nabokov's Translation Of Lewis Carroll, Victor Fet 2017 Marshall University

Beheading First: On Nabokov's Translation Of Lewis Carroll, Victor Fet

Victor Fet

Anya v Strane chudes, young Nabokov’s 1923 Russian translation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, contains an intentionally shifted statement “beheading first, sentence later” compared to Lewis Carroll’s “sentence first, verdict later”. The shift is fitting for the 1920s children émigré audience.

The Cultural Politics Of Eurovision: A Case Study Of Ukraine’S Invasion In 2014 Against Their Eurovision Win In 2016, Jordana L. Cashman 2017 Brigham Young University

The Cultural Politics Of Eurovision: A Case Study Of Ukraine’S Invasion In 2014 Against Their Eurovision Win In 2016, Jordana L. Cashman

Claremont-UC Undergraduate Research Conference on the European Union

Politics is officially banned from Eurovision, and songs that are too political can be prevented from being performed. However, the complete separation of culture and politics is impossible, and cultural performances often carry both indirect and explicit political messages. Eurovision is no exception. Established in 1956, the cultural-political goal of the contest was to unite European countries after the devastation of WWII, and it is one of the hallmarks of the cultural and political integration Europe has pursued since the founding of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951. Now, since contestants are based on members of the European ...
