Jewish Studies And Jewish Folklore, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1990

Jewish Studies And Jewish Folklore, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

Occasionally in the annals of scholarship there are events that turn upon themselves, so that, instead of being forums for exchange of ideas about a defined topic, they themselves become a subject for analysis and self-rejection. Our present panel is such an occasion. This is the first time in the history of the World Congresses for Jewish Studies that the program committee has allocated the discipline of folklore a plenary session, treating it as the equal of history, literature, Jewish languages and other fields that make up the entire gamut of Jewish studies. And thereby hangs a question. Why the ...


Lerma Y Olivares: La Práctica Del Valimiento En La Primera Mitad Del Seiscientos, Antonio Feros Jan 1990

Lerma Y Olivares: La Práctica Del Valimiento En La Primera Mitad Del Seiscientos, Antonio Feros

Departmental Papers (History)

A estas alturas, podria resultar paradojico sefialar que detras de esta cita de Gonzalez Davila se encuentra una de las razones -explicitada de for­ma natural por el autor- que explicaria, en ultima instancia, los cambios que se produjeron en el reinado de Felipe III: el caracter personal de la Monar­quia Hispana. Desde esta perspectiva la entronizacion de un nuevo monarca se convirtio -al igual que en reinados anteriores y posteriores- en el momen­to politico clave, en la ocasion para la introducion de novedades y de exalta­cion de personajes hasta esos momentos oscuros. Parece claro, en este ...

Pox Britannica: Smallpox Inoculation In Britain, 1721-1830, Deborah Christian Brunton Jan 1990

Pox Britannica: Smallpox Inoculation In Britain, 1721-1830, Deborah Christian Brunton

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

Inoculation has an important place in the history of medicine: not only was it the first form of preventive medicine but its history spans the so-called eighteenth century 'medical revolution'. A study of the myriad of pamphlets, books and articles on the controversial practice casts new light on these fundamental changes in the medical profession and medical practice. Whereas historians have associated the abandonment of old humoural theories and individualised therapy in favour of standardised techniques with the emergence of new institutions in the second half of the century, inoculation suggests that changes began as early as the 1720s. Though ...

Toni Morrison: The Struggle To Depict The Black Figure On The White Page, Timothy B. Powell Jan 1990

Toni Morrison: The Struggle To Depict The Black Figure On The White Page, Timothy B. Powell

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

This problem of how to represent the black self on the white page, how to overcome the inherent ethnocentrism of the Western literary tradition, is one with which both the critic and the novelist of Afro-American literature must struggle to come to terms. As Gates points out, it is a tradition which dates all the way back to Plato's metaphor of the soul -of a white horse which is described as a "follower of true glory" and another, "of a dark color," which in turn attempts to lead the soul "to do terrible and unlawful deeds." For those who ...

Of Us And Other "Things": The Content And Functions Of Talk By Adult Visitor Pairs In An Art And A History Museum, Lois Helayne Silverman Jan 1990

Of Us And Other "Things": The Content And Functions Of Talk By Adult Visitor Pairs In An Art And A History Museum, Lois Helayne Silverman

Dissertations (ASC)

Surprisingly little is known about the processes by which objects in museums come to hold meaning for visitors. Reconceptualizing the museum within a mass media framework in which visitors actively negotiate meaning through talk with their companions, this study explores four questions: 1) What are the kinds of interpretive acts that visitor pairs make in museums? 2) Are there patterns to these responses? How might they vary depending upon museum type and gender configuration of pair? 3) What are the social functions of such talk? 4)What does this suggest about the role of the museum in society?

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner Jan 1990

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner

Department of Anthropology Papers

First published in 1969, Simin Daneshvar's Savushun has gone through sixteen printings and sold half a million copies -- a record for a work of literature in modern Iran. The reason is not obscure. Daneshvar's style is sensitive and imaginative. Her story follows basic cultural themes and metaphors. It goes straight to the hearts of a generation of Iranian readers, striking special chords of emotion and memory of the recent past. Savushun enriches a generation's understanding of itself. It encap­sulates the experience of Iranians who have lived through the midcen­tury decades which led up to the ...
