Jus Ad Bellum, Natural Law And The 2003 Invasion Of Iraq, Johnny Davis May 2021

Jus Ad Bellum, Natural Law And The 2003 Invasion Of Iraq, Johnny Davis

CULTURE & CRISIS: Reconciling Constitutionalism & Federalism in a Time of Crisis

The legality of the invasion of Iraq is a vital question that goes to the heart of international law. The proper legal authority for military force and the overthrow of a sovereign government is the single most important area of international law.[1] This paper will consider whether the invasion of Iraq complied with the original intent of the Founding Fathers for the Constitutional authority to wage war and satisfied the requirements for a Just War under natural law.


The Barmen Declaration And The American Church: A Warning And Guidance From History, Johnny Davis May 2021

The Barmen Declaration And The American Church: A Warning And Guidance From History, Johnny Davis

CULTURE & CRISIS: Reconciling Constitutionalism & Federalism in a Time of Crisis

The Barmen Declaration serves as a great example that the American Church should heed.[1] The American Church faces a hostile secular culture and a government that is increasingly statist and anti-Christian. The state has become an idol in an American culture that rejects truth and righteousness. A bold stance for truth and Christ is required by scripture and is the key to transforming the culture and saving the American Republic.


Nothing New Under The Sun: Augustine And Cicero’S Visions Of How Human Nature Relates To Justice, Virtue, Biblical Wisdom, And The State, Faith Chudkowski May 2021

Nothing New Under The Sun: Augustine And Cicero’S Visions Of How Human Nature Relates To Justice, Virtue, Biblical Wisdom, And The State, Faith Chudkowski

CULTURE & CRISIS: Reconciling Constitutionalism & Federalism in a Time of Crisis

Social issues today stand at the forefront of civil discourse, global injustice abounds, and the average citizen seems to be more invested in molding a better future than ever before. In the 2020 presidential election, nearly two-thirds of America voted, a percentage that has not been reached since 1900.[1] In recent years, social media has become a primary avenue for rallying support and spreading ideas that range from domestic policy to new notions of justice. Yet, where passionate debate has erupted, levels of polarization and division have risen as well. Where one finds genuine concern for the state of ...


The “Age Of Rock” Versus The “Rock Of Ages”: Naturalism, Social Darwinism, And Fundamentalism In The Scopes Monkey Trial, Bessie Blackburn May 2021

The “Age Of Rock” Versus The “Rock Of Ages”: Naturalism, Social Darwinism, And Fundamentalism In The Scopes Monkey Trial, Bessie Blackburn

CULTURE & CRISIS: Reconciling Constitutionalism & Federalism in a Time of Crisis

Greek mythology once predominated the highest forms of culture known to man. Myths of how fire came to be in the hands of humans, or how the peacock got its spotted feathers were beloved cultural tales of origins.[1] With the decline of the ancient cultures, new ones blossomed in their place. However, the question of origin has remained a pertinent, central question of each culture, no matter how modern. The question of origin dictates who a person believes himself to be, where he believes himself to be going, and what he believes himself to be doing. The question of ...


"Susanoo Annotated", Samuel Bostwick May 2021

"Susanoo Annotated", Samuel Bostwick

COD Library Student Research and Award Symposium

For this project, I opted to take a deep dive into a religious culture I was not familiar with, namely, Shinto. To demonstrate my knowledge on the subject, I decided on annotating one of the myths of the religion; I selected the myth of Susanoo slaying the Orochi from the Shinto chronicle known as the Kojiki. The citations are presented in MLA format, obtained largely from the College of DuPage's library databases.

When The Legend Becomes Fact, Print The Legend, Michael Farinelli May 2021

When The Legend Becomes Fact, Print The Legend, Michael Farinelli

COD Library Student Research and Award Symposium

For this paper, I talked about how directors John Ford and Howard Hawks impacted the acting career of legendary actor John Wayne. I discuss how Wayne rose to prominence in Ford's film Stagecoach in 1939, but how Hawks was the one to take his acting to another level by giving his characters more depth. Ford and Hawks essentially "talked" amongst each other through Wayne and made him into this greater idea with their westerns.

The Women Of Wrath, Sylvia Morna Freitas, Erinique Robinson, Bella Ruiz May 2021

The Women Of Wrath, Sylvia Morna Freitas, Erinique Robinson, Bella Ruiz

COD Library Student Research and Award Symposium

Our group decided that we wanted to research the Ancient Greek myths of Pandora, the Harpies, the Fates, and the Furies to discover what these mythological figures stood for in the eyes of the Ancient Greeks. Once our research in our respective topics was complete, we came back together to look for comparisons between our separate figures, and the similarities we found eventually led us to the name of our project: The Women of Wrath.

Cupid & Psyche, Mars Pinkelman, Luna Shunk, Leo Grabowski-Grant May 2021

Cupid & Psyche, Mars Pinkelman, Luna Shunk, Leo Grabowski-Grant

COD Library Student Research and Award Symposium

The Tale of Cupid and Psyche was a research topic easily curated by the three of us. We as a collective decided upon which rendition of the story we would like to reference from, as well as represent details from other renditions that fit our analysis. We all had specific details in mind that we wanted to discuss and represent, specifically Cupid's relation to Venus as well as Psyche's butterfly wings. Before we began conversing on ideas about individual topics, we all discussed what the story meant to us, and why we wanted to research it. Our biggest ...


Servant Leadership Development & Impact During The Covid-19 Pandemic, Samiha Syed May 2021

Servant Leadership Development & Impact During The Covid-19 Pandemic, Samiha Syed

COD Library Student Research and Award Symposium

Servant leaders are ethical leaders, who motivate others as per their values-driven philosophy of service to others [within the organization, as well as, communities broadly], while also having a transformational impact on communities as per ethical leadership. This project will examine servant leadership and how servant leaders managed the sudden pandemic crisis in 2020 within their organizations. Through qualitative interviews with individuals, the researcher used coding to identify themes and develop recommendations for preparing meaningful leadership learning experiences.

Effect Of Covid-19 On Elementary Students' Use Of Language Online, Emma Polen May 2021

Effect Of Covid-19 On Elementary Students' Use Of Language Online, Emma Polen

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in an unprecedented period of online communication among children. This paper aims to exemplify how the reliance on digital communication platforms compelled by COVID-19 affected elementary students’ use of language. Within the study, children used primarily visual language on digital sites with friends. There were two main forms of primary research in this study. The first consisted of a survey of 16 parents of elementary school children in my school district. The second was an observation of Zoom chat room activity among three eight-year-olds. Both methods of conducting research build on the existing understanding that digital ...


Developing A Multimedia Interface For Electrical Biosignal Interpretation, Christopher Cox May 2021

Developing A Multimedia Interface For Electrical Biosignal Interpretation, Christopher Cox

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

In the last ten years, a great deal of interest has been generated around the practice of using plants’ electrical signals to create sound or music. In order to render biosignals capable of producing sound electronically, some kind of interface is necessary that converts a plant’s natural electrical signals into data that a computer can understand. Existing commercial interfaces cost at minimum $3001,2 . Worse yet, two popular off-the-shelf interfaces conform their output signals to stereotypical human notions of what a plant might “sound like”. In this project we fabricated a simple but high-performance interface for less than $5 ...


Songs Of The Sea And The Sailor: Demystifying The Mythology Of British Sailing Culture, Henry Strobel May 2021

Songs Of The Sea And The Sailor: Demystifying The Mythology Of British Sailing Culture, Henry Strobel

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

Sea shanties have generally been accepted as the main relic of the culture of British sailors: a mythology that permeates the 19th and 20th century describing the harsh, unforgiving and yet in many ways romanticized life at sea. The repertoire of this time was eventually written down and catalogued by folk music collectors such as Cecil J. Sharp, who were hoping to record and preserve the British identity for generations to come. However, in researching the etymology of these songs as well as the first-hand accounts of sailors, there is a significantly greater layer of complexity to this history than ...


Ja Rusyn Byl (I Am Rusyn): Household Folk Music As Resistance To Oppression, Spencer Mcneill May 2021

Ja Rusyn Byl (I Am Rusyn): Household Folk Music As Resistance To Oppression, Spencer Mcneill

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

The Rusyns are a people indigenous to the Carpathian Mountains and its surrounding areas. Despite attempts by the Ukrainian government and surrounding nations to silently erase Rusyn culture from history, the Rusyn people have a distinct identity independent from that of any bordering nation. This unique identity is best outlined through Rusyn folk songs which depict pastoral images of the Carpathian homeland and patriotic tales of Rusyn ancestry. Much work to date has already been done documenting post Velvet Revolution revival of Rusyn culture. Because of this, I will instead focus on the lesser-known time prior and leading up to ...


Mary Todd Lincoln: Duty And Depression, Bella Biancone May 2021

Mary Todd Lincoln: Duty And Depression, Bella Biancone

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln was perceived by Victorian America as materialistic and unbalanced. Behind the closed doors of the Executive Mansion, however, lie a grief-stricken mother struggling to manage an undiagnosed and untreated mental illness. Her fragile condition was exacerbated with each death of her beloved family. Yet, this First Lady played an integral role in the White House, acting as hostess, advisor to the President, and activist in her own right. She was not a passive bystander as her husband worked tirelessly to preserve the Union, but an active participant in the war effort. Following Abraham Lincoln’s ...
