Wood Mountain Walk: Afterthoughts On A Pilgrimage For Andrew Suknaski, Ken Wilson 2019 University of Regina, Regina SK

Wood Mountain Walk: Afterthoughts On A Pilgrimage For Andrew Suknaski, Ken Wilson

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Ken Wilson’s ‘Wood Mountain Walk: Afterthoughts on a Pilgrimage for Andrew Suknaski’ reflects on a 250-kilometre walking pilgrimage made in honour of the late Canadian poet Andrew Suknaski. Wilson’s autoethnographic essay considers the possibilities and challenges of walking as a way to engage with land and community; Suknaski’s book Wood Mountain Poems and the issue of cultural appropriation; what it is like to walk in a sparsely populated and arid agricultural province where trespassing laws confine walkers to roads; and walking as both pilgrimage and artistic practice.


From The Dark Green Hill To Our Lady Of The Harbour, Stacey Engels 2019 Lehman College, City University of New York, NY

From The Dark Green Hill To Our Lady Of The Harbour, Stacey Engels

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Stacey Engels narrates the pilgrim body in ‘From the Dark Green Hill to Our Lady of the Harbour’ by bringing her reader along on a pilgrimage that sprang up almost instantly in downtown Montreal on the day that Leonard Cohen’s death was announced. In her travelogue-style vignettes, even a sausage sandwich becomes a sacred relic when mingled with community and intention.


Walking On Walls: Shifting Perspectives In A Post-Modern World, Philip Szporer 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

Walking On Walls: Shifting Perspectives In A Post-Modern World, Philip Szporer

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In ‘Walking on Walls,’ Philip Szporer brings dance and pilgrimage into fascinating relationship. He resituates American choreographer and dancer Trisha Brown’s radical approach to the human body in terms of core concepts that have shaped pilgrimage theory. Szporer proposes that pilgrimage, place, and mobility theories provide useful lenses for an innovative re-examination of Brown’s pioneering dance pieces. Like pilgrimage, her ideas and contributions were enacted outside - and often in contradistinction to - the control of institutional authority.


Event Running And Pilgrimage: A Comparative Case Study, Janice Poltrick-Donato 2019 Independent Scholar, Montreal QC

Event Running And Pilgrimage: A Comparative Case Study, Janice Poltrick-Donato

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Janice Poltrick-Donato’s ‘Event Running and Pilgrimage’ links pilgrimage with the trials and triumphs of the amateur event runner. She demonstrates the statistical and existential parallels between the two practices, and shows how the suffering and accomplishments of running are experienced by some runners as a form of secular pilgrimage, a ‘journey to the self.’


The Physiological Effects Of Walking Pilgrimage, M. Brennan Harris 2019 William & Mary, Williamsburg VA

The Physiological Effects Of Walking Pilgrimage, M. Brennan Harris

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

M. Brennan Harris presents in ‘The Healthy Body’ his kinesiological research conducted on the Camino de Santiago, examining the effects of walking pilgrimage on the self-identified experience of well-being in pilgrim bodies.


Pilgrimage, Existence, And Psychic Distress: An Exploration Of The Bodily And Psychic Phenomenon Of Pilgrimage, Christine Jamieson 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

Pilgrimage, Existence, And Psychic Distress: An Exploration Of The Bodily And Psychic Phenomenon Of Pilgrimage, Christine Jamieson

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In ‘Pilgrimage, Existence, and Psychic Distress,’ Christine Jamieson draws on the work of psychoanalyst and linguist Julia Kristeva, tracking the haunting desire for healing and liberation inherent in pilgrimage as it touches the deep and irresolutely corporeal experience of what it means to be human.


Walking To Be Some Body: Desire And Diaspora On The St. Olaf Way, Matthew R. Anderson 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

Walking To Be Some Body: Desire And Diaspora On The St. Olaf Way, Matthew R. Anderson

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In ‘Walking to Be Some Body’ Matthew R. Anderson uses the example of North American Scandinavian-background pilgrims walking Norway’s St. Olaf Way to parse the yearning of contemporary diaspora pilgrims who walk repristinated routes along ancient paths toward real or imagined homelands. These travellers literally incarnate contemporary tensions between the religious and the non-religious, the journey and the destination, and between the rootlessness of modern global tourism and the rootedness longed for in community and patrimony.


Luther And The Trajectories Of Western Pilgrimage, Matthew R. Anderson 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

Luther And The Trajectories Of Western Pilgrimage, Matthew R. Anderson

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In ‘Luther and the Trajectories of Western Pilgrimage,’ Matthew R. Anderson asserts that after his long trek from Erfurt in 1510-1511, monk and Protestant reformer Martin Luther’s negative remembrances of Rome became one of the catalysts for his influential critique of pilgrimage. Luther’s fear of social unrest, Protestant theological attacks on the doctrines of merit, and Luther’s own personality solidified his antipathy to the practice. The Reformation led to the near-demise of pilgrimage in Protestant areas and the disruption of travel to those shrines that had an international draw. Because of this temporary eclipse, the rebirth of ...


Bartered Bodies: Medieval Pilgrims And The Tissue Of Faith, George D. Greenia 2019 William & Mary

Bartered Bodies: Medieval Pilgrims And The Tissue Of Faith, George D. Greenia

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In ‘The Bartered Body,’ George Greenia disentangles the complex desires and experiences of religious travellers of the High Middle Ages who knew the spiritual usefulness of their vulnerable flesh. The bodily remains of the saints housed in pilgrim shrines were not just remnants of a redeemed past, but open portals for spiritual exchange with the living body of the visiting pilgrim.


The Eschatological Body: Fleeing The Centre In Pre-Modern Insular Christianity And Post-Modern Secularity, Sara Terreault 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

The Eschatological Body: Fleeing The Centre In Pre-Modern Insular Christianity And Post-Modern Secularity, Sara Terreault

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

‘The Eschatological Body’ examines the practice peregrinatio pro Christo among the Insular Christians living at the north-west edge of Europe in the early Middle Ages. The paper distinguishes this peregrinatio ex patria from the more conventional understanding of pilgrimage as peregrinatio ad loca, or destinational pilgrimage. It explores the theological and existential meanings of exile, foreignness, and home inherent in the practices, and suggests that for these Insular peregrini, the body becomes the dynamic ‘centre’ in decentred, itinerant lives awaiting the eschaton. The paper concludes by considering the possible links between this ancient practice and the postmodern notion of ‘existential ...


Written By The Body: Early Christian Pilgrims As Sacred Placemakers, Jenn Cianca 2019 Bishop’s University, Sherbrooke QC

Written By The Body: Early Christian Pilgrims As Sacred Placemakers, Jenn Cianca

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

This paper uncovers how the journeys of the earliest Christian pilgrims constructed the very notion of sacred bodies and sacred place, consequently establishing the networks of pilgrimage routes that would be used by Western travellers from Late Antiquity onward.


Introduction : The Body Is The Place Where Pilgrimage Happens, Sara Terreault 2019 Concordia University, Montreal QC

Introduction : The Body Is The Place Where Pilgrimage Happens, Sara Terreault

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

This paper lays the groundwork for reflection on pilgrimage in Christian and postChristian contexts, specifically as a cluster of performative practices of movement through time and across space, originating and substantiated in the lived flesh of pilgrim bodies-in-the-world. Thinking with Eade, Sallnow, and Poteat, no less than with Badiou, Eagleton, and Ricoeur, the author theorises the pilgrim body at the nexus of bodies, topographies, mobilities, and narratives.

Can You Float? Part 2 - Perceptions And Practice Of Lifejacket Use Among Young Adults, Kevin Moran Ph.D. 2019 The University of Auckland

Can You Float? Part 2 - Perceptions And Practice Of Lifejacket Use Among Young Adults, Kevin Moran Ph.D.

International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education

Personal flotation devices (PFDs), commonly referred to as lifejackets, have been identified as an extremely effective form of drowning prevention and was identified as a critical distinct water competency by Stallman and colleagues (2017). In this second phase of the Can You Float? study, perceptions and practice of a range of lifejacket tasks among students (N = 40) with known water proficiency were examined. Participants estimated exertion levels before and after practical testing of six simulated survival tasks when wearing lifejackets. All participants completed a 25m sprint swim, 5-minute endurance swim, 5-minute float, and 25m partner assist but many failed to ...

An Investigation Of Youth Swimming Skills And Method Of Instruction, Carol C. Irwin, Jennifer R. Pharr, Todd E. Layne, Richard L. Irwin

International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education

Drowning is a leading cause of death for US children. Teaching youth to swim in a formal setting from certified instructors is a consistent drowning prevention recommendation. Purposes for this investigation was to examine type of swimming instruction and ability to swim and compare to attitudes toward swimming among US youth. Methods were similar to previous USA Swimming studies in 2008 and 2010. YMCA associations in five cities were used to recruit adolescent survey respondents (n=600) aged 12-18 years. Results showed African American youth had the lowest rate of formal swimming instruction (29%) compared to White (32%) and Hispanic ...


From Casino Wars To Casino Capitalism: Sovereignty And Gaming In Macau, Tim Simpson 2019 University of Macau

From Casino Wars To Casino Capitalism: Sovereignty And Gaming In Macau, Tim Simpson

Occasional Papers

In 1999, after nearly half a millennia of administration, Portugal returned the citystate of Macau to the People’s Republic of China, and it was designated a Special Administrative Region under the PRC’s “one country, two systems” regime. Less than a decade after the handover Macau was transformed into the world’s most lucrative site of casino gaming, and today the city is visited by more than 35 million annual tourists, the majority of whom are from mainland China. Macau’s remarkable economic expansion may be in part attributed to the city’s ambiguous sovereignty, an endemic characteristic which ...


Triennial Scientific Review: Assisting Drowning Victims: Effective Water Rescue Equipment For Lay-Responders, Angela K. Beale-Tawfeeq, American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council 2019 Rowan University

Triennial Scientific Review: Assisting Drowning Victims: Effective Water Rescue Equipment For Lay-Responders, Angela K. Beale-Tawfeeq, American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council

International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education

The original question addressed in the scientific review was What is the most effective piece of rescue equipment for a lay responder to throw to a person in trouble in water? and the modified question was rephrased as What are the most effective types of aquatic rescue equipment for a layperson/bystander to use to rescue a drowning person? To thoroughly analyze the main question, the following sub-questions were examined: What are the most accurate and buoyant types of devices? What specific equipment is best for quick rescues? What specific equipment can be grasped most easily by drowning victims? This ...
