Myth And The Paris Commune, Katie Brunner Nov 2015

Myth And The Paris Commune, Katie Brunner

Communication and Theater Association of Minnesota Journal

The Paris Commune of 1871 is an event in history that has had a special place in the hearts of many revolutionaries. Karl Marx called it “the first successful working class revolution”. This paper looks at the events of the Paris Commune, as recounted in a work produced 25 years after the event occurred and, by means of comparison with more recent accounts, examines how it moved from a historical “reality” to a mythic history through the lens of secondary framing and historical mythology. This approach to the Paris Commune reveals many significantly different interpretations; pointing out that the true ...

When Simplifying Life Is Not So Bad: The Link Between Rigidity, Stressful Life Events, And Mental Health In An Undergraduate Population, Joseph Ciarrochi, Frank Deane, Terry Said Jul 2015

When Simplifying Life Is Not So Bad: The Link Between Rigidity, Stressful Life Events, And Mental Health In An Undergraduate Population, Joseph Ciarrochi, Frank Deane, Terry Said

joseph Ciarrochi

Decades of research have generally shown that being more rigid is associated with poorer mental health. We investigated whether all aspects of what has been termed “rigidity” are harmful. In particular, we hypothesized that the desire for simple structure (DSS) will not be associated with poor mental health, and in some cases might be associated with better mental health. In contrast, the intolerance of uncertainty (IU) was hypothesized to be associated with a wide range of indices of poor mental health. We also hypothesized that people high in IU would be less resilient in the face of stressful life events ...


Testing An Original Story In Multiple Artistic Mediums, Alexander F. Morton May 2015

Testing An Original Story In Multiple Artistic Mediums, Alexander F. Morton

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The Story is one of the oldest forms of communication between humans. Various methods have enhanced and updated the Art in a variety of ways since the concept was created. In modern times, a story can exist in multiple mediums because of the variations that humans use today to tell stories. I present an artistic project that will show my development of an original universe, plot, and characters into a storyline introduction for enjoyable purposes. The belief was that these ideas I created could succeed in multiple formats, but I would need to narrow it down and test what I ...

Quaker Events For Young People: Informal Education And Faith Transmission, Simon Best

Quaker Studies

This article examines Quaker events for young people and explores the nature of these events through examination of official policies, questionnaires and observation at events. It examines the purposes of Quaker events for young people as described by official policies and by youth work practitioners and examines the significance of these events in the lives of adolescent Quakers. Quaker events for young people are analysed in comparison with the values and principles of 'informal education'. Contrasts are drawn between Quaker events for young people and Christian youth work. This article also explores the nature of faith transmission at Quaker events ...

Dr. Jeannie Ludlow: “Undue Burdens And Personal Responsibility: Literary Pregnancy And Abortion In The Post-Choice Decade In The United States”, Jeannie Ludlow

Speaker Series

Dr. Ludlow is Associate Professor of English and Coordinator of Women’s Studies. Her research interests include representations of abortion and reproduction in contemporary literature and writing, abortion discourse, and activist pedagogy. Exploring author Julia Alvarez’s claim that there are truths that “can only finally be understood by fiction, only finally be redeemed by the imagination,” her presentation is about the power of the humanities to redeem complex truths in a transitional historical moment in U.S. reproductive rights.


Translit As Thought-Events: Cloud Atlas And Storyland, Catherine Mckinnon Jan 2015

Translit As Thought-Events: Cloud Atlas And Storyland, Catherine Mckinnon

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in (and publication of) multi-narration novels that surf time, genre hop and shift geographical location. In 2012, novelist and critic, Dougles Coupland, coined the term 'translit' to describe such novels (11). If we accept Couopland's term, david Mitchell's Cloud Atlas (2003), Steve Amsterdam's Things We Didn't See Coming (2009), Jennette Winterson's The Stone Gods (2007), and Michael Cunningham's, the Hours (1998) and Specimen Day (2005), might all be called translit, so too Virginia Woolf's not so recent Orlando (1928). By choosing to travel across ...


Signal Eight Times: Nature, Catastrophic Extinction Events And Contemporary Art, Su Ballard Jan 2015

Signal Eight Times: Nature, Catastrophic Extinction Events And Contemporary Art, Su Ballard

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Human animals bought up in the Western tradition tend to describe their encounters with other species as exchanges of power, and when confronted with extinction rush to the defence of the species at risk. This essay documents a different approach to the defence of nature. Basing itself on the work of six contemporary artists and drawing on the thought of Donna Haraway and Gregory Bateson I show how it is possible to comprehend the catastrophic extinction of birds in New Zealand by thinking about ecology. I argue that rather than defend nature, these artworks stage small moments of encounter, which ...
