Muslim Responses To Integration: Demands In The Netherlands Since 9/11, Abdulkader Tayob Sep 2006

Muslim Responses To Integration: Demands In The Netherlands Since 9/11, Abdulkader Tayob

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This paper takes a closer look at the debate over the value and meaning of Islam for Dutch society and politics in the aftermath of 9/11. It presents a case of how global events since September 11, and particularly the violence perpetrated by Muslims, accelerated the call for integration of Muslims in the country. The relationship between Islam and violence in particular, and Islam and anti-social values in general, had moved to the centre stage of the political debate. Furthermore, there was intense argument between those who felt that Islam in general was inimical to Dutch and Western values ...

Scientific Research In A Foreign Language, Meghan Bellows Apr 2006

Scientific Research In A Foreign Language, Meghan Bellows

Senior Honors Projects

Research is a vital aspect in science and engineering. Not only does it further ideas and technology around the world, it brings people around the world together through collaborations. More often than not, the common language spoken among collaborators is English. This makes it easy for native English speakers. It becomes very difficult, however, when the common language spoken among collaborators is not one’s native tongue. New vocabulary, oftentimes very complex and technical, must be learned. It becomes even more of a challenge to present results and findings in a manner that is clear and concise. A collaboration between ...

Review Of Framing Faust: Twentieth-Century Cultural Struggles, William H. Carter Jan 2006

Review Of Framing Faust: Twentieth-Century Cultural Struggles, William H. Carter

World Languages and Cultures Publications

The scope of Fratning Faust: Twentieth-Century Cultural Struggles is very ambitious, as Inez Hedges concedes at the outset. Rather than attempting to survey "the entire landscape of the Faustian," she narrows her focus to "the ways in which the Faustian rebel has surfaced in some of the most important cultural crises of the twentieth century" in order "to explore the Faustian myth in its various political, aesthetic, and social contexts" (xiii). While the topic appears very broad at first, the author skillfully demonstrates her expertise in European film and surrealism as she excavates little-known archival material and countless lesser-known Faust ...


'Ab Les Man Junctes E Genolls En Terra': Intercession And The Notion Of Queenship In Late Medieval Catalonia, Dawn Bratsch-Prince Jan 2006

'Ab Les Man Junctes E Genolls En Terra': Intercession And The Notion Of Queenship In Late Medieval Catalonia, Dawn Bratsch-Prince

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Did medieval women who wore the crown share a common notion of queenship or recognize their own membership in a privileged group? Throughout medieval Europe the most salient images of queenship were those of wife, mother, and intercessor, familiar to the general population through Biblical and literary sources. This essay suggests that medieval Mediterranean queens were, in fact, aware of the power and influence that their role as intercessor afforded them. Two texts composed by the Aragonese queen Violant de Bar are used to shed light on a notion of queenship seemingly understood by her contemporaries, both male and female ...


East O' The Sun And West O' The Moon: The Construction Of National Identity In Norwegian Fashion Photography, Anne-Britt Kjoensburg Jan 2006

East O' The Sun And West O' The Moon: The Construction Of National Identity In Norwegian Fashion Photography, Anne-Britt Kjoensburg

Theses : Honours

This exegesis compliments my photographic project which was to produce a body of work that explores Norwegian identity through fashion using myths and iconography to communicate Norwegian-ness, and depicts the Norwegian lifestyle in a surprising and humorous way. My aim has been to find out if there is any distinctive aesthetic approach/style that constructs, defines and reproduces Norwegian identity, and if Norwegian fashion photography is being influenced by the resurgence of interest in Norwegian style. I have looked at how humans use fashion as a technique to construct various identities rather than a mask that covers the self and ...
