Celtic Culture And Early Christianity As Simultaneous Intellectual Movements In The Early Medieval Scotland And Ireland, Will Christian De Man May 2020

Celtic Culture And Early Christianity As Simultaneous Intellectual Movements In The Early Medieval Scotland And Ireland, Will Christian De Man

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This paper is focused on the interactions between native Celtic culture and Christianity in Early Medieval Scotland and Ireland. The primary argument is that the roots of early Christian hagiography in Ireland are based on Celtic folklore. Specifically, it will explores the ways in which early Irish saints like Patrick, Colmcille, and Brigid are portrayed as mythological heroes in Irish folklore. The Life of Brigid and the Tain Bo Cuilainge are used as primary sources. The Tain is an example of the model that Irish mythological heroes were based off, whereas the Life of Brigid is a specific example of ...


Absurdity And Veracity: Religion In Warhol's Paintings, Yuchen Wang May 2020

Absurdity And Veracity: Religion In Warhol's Paintings, Yuchen Wang

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Besides the most famous works like Marilyn and soup cans, Andy Warhol left us with a lot of works and questions together due to his public image. We know Warhol's LGBTQ + and Byzantine Catholic identities, but these seemed peripheral to an understanding of his art, which is segregated at the public and private levels. This binary oppositional divergence and contradiction constitute Warhol's Life. Warhol's life as a Byzantine Catholic does not seem to fit our impression of the conservative tradition of Orthodox Christians. But for Warhol scholars, what they obtained through the surface did not explain all ...


Peter And The Starcatcher: Creating The Character Of Peter Pan Via Rehearsal, Script Analysis, And Personal Journals, Delaney Jackson May 2020

Peter And The Starcatcher: Creating The Character Of Peter Pan Via Rehearsal, Script Analysis, And Personal Journals, Delaney Jackson

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

Theatre, as an art, does an incredible job at making stage life look as organic as the lives we lead on a daily basis. That’s thanks in part to a methodical rehearsal process that the public rarely has a chance to see.

My goal with this creative project was to give the general public an opportunity to join myself and the rest of the cast of UNO’s Peter and the Starcatcher on a journey through our rehearsal process via journal keeping and character analysis before presenting the show on April 15, 2020.

Unfortunately, we had to give a ...


William Livingston And The Stamp Act Crisis Of 1765, Nicole Skalenko May 2020

William Livingston And The Stamp Act Crisis Of 1765, Nicole Skalenko

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The Stamp Act was passed by British Parliament on March 22, 1765. The first direct tax on the colonies, it resulted in widespread resistance throughout New York, New Jersey and all of Britain's North American colonies. William Livingston, at the time an established lawyer, essayist, and political propagandist, led the colony's opposition. Livingston utilized The New-York Gazette or Weekly Post- Boy as a vehicle to reach a broader audience to present his arguments against the tax and to highlight Parliament's subversion to trial by jury, a violation of American liberties. His legal career was directly affected by ...


"Get The Tables": Wrestling Through The Metatheatrical Lens, Abigail Raley May 2020

"Get The Tables": Wrestling Through The Metatheatrical Lens, Abigail Raley

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The "Dudley Boyz" stand in the middle of the ring, their muscles throbbing, sweat beading on their hulking foreheads. Their opponent lays in the center of the ring, crumpled by their brute strength. In spite of the rules, the brothers scream out once again "get the tables." The crowd explodes, chanting and reeling at their favorite wrestlers, ready to smash another victim with the cold, hard wood and metal. Though they've seen the boys break these rules many times before, the thrill never ceases. Wrestling is characterized by its scripted fights, use of ridiculous props (ranging from tennis rackets ...

Sex As Escapism: An Analysis Of What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Mary Sincavage Apr 2020

Sex As Escapism: An Analysis Of What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Mary Sincavage

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Raymond Carver's "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love" is a short-story cycle joined by motifs that further an overarching theme. A majority of the scholarship written about this short-story cycle focuses on alcohol and the alcoholism present throughout the stories. However, this essay focuses on a more abstract motif: sex. This essay emphasizes sex as a motif that promotes the theme of escapism. The recurring act of vacuous sex serves as an escape tactic for the characters and is caused by their inability to communicate and their general unhappiness in their lives. This motif is present ...

Through The Eyes Of Tribal Nations: Public Law 280, Tribal Sovereignty, And The Value Of Sovereignty, Jordan Dunlap Apr 2020

Through The Eyes Of Tribal Nations: Public Law 280, Tribal Sovereignty, And The Value Of Sovereignty, Jordan Dunlap

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

My research objectives for this project are to determine the consistency of Public Law 280, a statute that transferred jurisdiction of tribal nations from the federal to the state governments, and the doctrine of tribal sovereignty. Likewise, I will develop an argument for how this legal finding contributes to the conversation of what it means to be sovereign. To fulfill these objectives, I will provide a legal analysis that will answer my research question: Does Public Law 280 violate the doctrine of tribal sovereignty? After this is completed, I will compare the doctrine of tribal sovereignty with the jurisdictional stipulations ...

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza Apr 2020

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza

KUCC -- Kutztown University Composition Conference

Though choosing sources that have specific copyright that allows for the reuse, modification, and redistribution of pictures is an important lesson for all students of all grade levels, what’s even a more important lesson is that of the power of social media. The perfect picture can spread like a wildfire across all social media platforms. Pictures have the power to change someone’s mood, political opinion, and even advocate for change on the other side of the world.


Womanpriest: Tradition And Transgression In The Contemporary Roman Catholic Church, Jill Peterfeso Apr 2020

Womanpriest: Tradition And Transgression In The Contemporary Roman Catholic Church, Jill Peterfeso

History

This book is openly available in digital formats thanks to a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

While some Catholics and even non-Catholics today are asking if priests are necessary, especially given the ongoing sex-abuse scandal, The Roman Catholic Womanpriests (RCWP) looks to reframe and reform Roman Catholic priesthood, starting with ordained women. Womanpriest is the first academic study of the RCWP movement. As an ethnography, Womanpriest analyzes the womenpriests’ actions and lived theologies in order to explore ongoing tensions in Roman Catholicism around gender and sexuality, priestly authority, and religious change.

In order to understand how womenpriests ...

Dataset: Scribes Of The Cairo Geniza, Sorting Phase, August 2017 - February 2019, Emily Esten

Scribes of the Cairo Geniza

This Scribes of the Cairo Geniza dataset comprise images of Geniza fragments from Judaica manuscript collections at Penn Libraries, the Genizah Research Unit at Cambridge University Libraries, and the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary. The dataset comprises records of 40,111 fragments, sorted between August 2017 and February 2019. Images of fragments were uploaded to the Zooniverse.org citizen science website where they were classified by scholars and volunteer humanists. Classification involved identifying script type and formality, and landmarking pre-defined features on the fragments.

Marielle Franco, Rhaissa Sanches Jan 2020

Marielle Franco, Rhaissa Sanches

Faculty Curated Undergraduate Works

Marielle Franco was a Black, Brazilian activist (1979-2018) who rose from the favelas (poor areas) of Rio de Janeiro to be elected as a councilwoman in Rio's election of 2016. Franco was known for exposing the violence waged in the favelas by Brazil's military and police under the "pretense of maintaining law and order," as well as how the militia wields power over those who live in the favelas. In addition to detailing Franco's life, activism and death, this paper also explains the history and development of the favelas in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the ...


Encoding, Decoding, And The End Of Game Of Thrones, Kaitlin Jock Jan 2020

Encoding, Decoding, And The End Of Game Of Thrones, Kaitlin Jock

Capstone Showcase

Stuart Hall, a cultural theorist who helped develop what we understand as modern media theory, defined reception theory as a sort of reader response implying that all media texts are encoded and decoded with messages. A producer of a media text encodes a message which is meant to be decoded by the consumer. They might accept the message, negotiate their own reading, or completely reject it. After spending a decade as the biggest show in the world, Game of Thrones came to a close in 2019 and after months of anticipation leading up to a final season completely fell out ...


Solitary Solidarity: Vignettes Of The Appalachian Trail, Noah L. Booth Jan 2020

Solitary Solidarity: Vignettes Of The Appalachian Trail, Noah L. Booth

Undergraduate Theses, Professional Papers, and Capstone Artifacts

This past Summer, I spent two months solo-hiking the first third of the Appalachian Trail. I completed 737 total miles, starting at Springer Mountain in Georgia and continuing through North Carolina and Tennessee, before finishing my journey in central Virginia. I am no stranger to backpacking, but the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains of the Southeast were completely foreign to me. Throughout this two month excursion I kept a daily journal, logging everything from mileage and geographical features, to encounters with wildlife and humans alike. Over six months have elapsed since I completed my journey and, having had plenty of time ...


On Angels’ Wings: Idolatry In Viktoria Tokareva’S “Five Figures On A Pedestal” And Lyudmila Ulitskaya’S “Angel”, Courtney E. Bentz Jan 2020

On Angels’ Wings: Idolatry In Viktoria Tokareva’S “Five Figures On A Pedestal” And Lyudmila Ulitskaya’S “Angel”, Courtney E. Bentz

Undergraduate Theses, Professional Papers, and Capstone Artifacts

In his essays on Greek deities, Ralph Waldo Emerson declared: “Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.” While the idea of gods taking a corporeal form or angels walking among humans is a common literary trope, seldom do mortal characters find themselves compared to the divine without negative repercussions. Select post-Soviet women writers, however, flip this trope to explore the opposite. They instead embrace the human as holy, restrained by little consequence, as a means to highlight its destructive qualities in the context of an intimate relationship. These contemporary authors, Viktoria Tokareva and Lyudmila Ulitskaya ...


“Plough Up Some Literary”: Signifying On “Ole Massa” And White Authority Through Oral Space In Zora Neale Hurston’S Mules And Men And Eudora Welty’S “Powerhouse”, James Vaughan Dec 2019

“Plough Up Some Literary”: Signifying On “Ole Massa” And White Authority Through Oral Space In Zora Neale Hurston’S Mules And Men And Eudora Welty’S “Powerhouse”, James Vaughan

Student Research Submissions

This essay compares representative methods of black storytelling and signifying that overcome white authority in Hurston’s Mules and Men and Welty’s “Powerhouse.” Though many critics disagree with Mules and Men’s ambivalent structural frame, this essay defends Hurston’s subversive use of anthropological features and humanization of the storytellers as an act of authority over the white-dominated genre of anthropology she portrays. Likewise, the “Ole Massa” tales the workmen tell in Mules and Men signify on or subvert the legacy of slavery by depicting the slave-owner as a man easily and consistently fooled by John the slave. In ...


Whose Birthright? Evaluating The Impact Of Birthright Trips To Israel On American Jewish Identity In The #Metoo And #Boycottbirthright Era, Christy David Dec 2019

Whose Birthright? Evaluating The Impact Of Birthright Trips To Israel On American Jewish Identity In The #Metoo And #Boycottbirthright Era, Christy David

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis critically examines both the impact of Birthright Israel trips on the formation of Jewish American identity but also confronts disparities in the participants’ experiences and the current evaluation methods being used to judge the ‘success’ of the trips. In 2018, the rise of the #MeToo and #BoycottBirthright movements coincided, and both participants of the trip and female educators called for a change in both the Birthright itinerary and supposed “goals” that were seeped in misogyny and an erasure of the Palestinian narrative. This research brings the two seemingly separate issues together by looking at the issues with the ...


Rhetsec_ | Rhetorical Security, Jennifer Mead Dec 2019

Rhetsec_ | Rhetorical Security, Jennifer Mead

Culminating Projects in English

Rhetsec_ examines the rhetorical situation, the rhetorical appeals, and how phishing emails simulate "real" emails in five categories of phishing emails. While the first focus of cybersecurity is security, you must also understand the language of computers to know how to secure them. Phishing is one way to compromise security using computers, and so the computer becomes a tool for malicious language (phishing emails and malware) to be transmitted. Therefore to be concerned with securing computers, then you must also be concerned with language. Language is rhetoric's domain, and the various rhetorical elements which create an identity of the ...
