Educational Reformer & Christian Soldier: General Oliver Otis Howard, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2018

Educational Reformer & Christian Soldier: General Oliver Otis Howard, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

Contemporaries of Oliver Otis Howard and historians alike have disagreed on the degree of his success as a Civil War general and as commissioner of the Freedmen’s Bureau.  Some describe his performance as inept and others as skillful.  Some laud his Christian example while others believe that he allowed his religious and political beliefs to diminish his efforts.  Whatever one’s perspective, evidence indicates that Howard’s political and religious beliefs influenced his actions as Civil War general and as Freedmen’s Bureau commissioner, and—although he experienced some failure in both arenas—his leadership is exemplified by what ...


World War Ii And Its Impact On Education, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2018

World War Ii And Its Impact On Education, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

A cost rarely considered in the study of war is its impact on education.  Government budgets shift funding from schools to armies.  Parents and teachers go off to war or modify their own activities to support the cause.  Older students prepare to fight while younger ones are evacuated or kept safe at home.  Educational experiences are certainly different for students in war-torn countries than for those in countries far from battle.  Nevertheless, war impacts education in a number of ways, and there are many examples of how World War II certainly did this.       


History Of American Indian Education: A Journey Toward Autonomy And Reciprocity, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2018

History Of American Indian Education: A Journey Toward Autonomy And Reciprocity, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

As the 500th anniversary approached of Christopher Columbus’s arrival to the New World, hundreds of Native Americans, representing 120 Indian nations, gathered in Quito, Ecuador, to write a joint declaration entitled “500 Years of Indian Resistance.”  Reflecting on their struggles and identity as a people, they rejected the planned celebrations for 1992.  They reaffirmed their commitment to self-determination, demanded respect for their culture, and defended their ability to educate autonomously. Since the arrival of Europeans in the New World, Native Americans have indeed struggled to educate future generations autonomously.  At times, indigenous peoples have willingly embraced the ways of ...


Education In Presidential Politics, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2018

Education In Presidential Politics, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

In some presidential elections more so than others, education has been a political football.  When not focused on foreign policy or the economy, politicians may give lip service to the topic of education more so than they normally would.  In the second half of the twentieth century, however, education became an increasingly critical issue in national politics.  Tracing its role, especially from Lyndon B. Johnson to Donald Trump reveals some unexpected paradoxical moments.  An exploration of party platforms, speeches, and legislative proposals reveals how education has been used for purposes such as national defense, economic competition, and civil rights.


Exploring Echo-Systems: How Algorithms Shape Immersive Media Environments, James N. Cohen Nov 2018

Exploring Echo-Systems: How Algorithms Shape Immersive Media Environments, James N. Cohen

James Cohen

In the lead up to the 2016 election, fake news often “outperformed” actual news in users’ social media feeds (Silverman, 2016). This paper attempts to analyze the process in which fake news proliferates social networking sites and presents a method of understanding and articulating ways in which personalized feeds are shaped by algorithm-based user feedback. The algorithm systems are embedded programs that analyze past user data and search history in combination with other users’ searches and history to calculate digital outcomes, anticipate possible recommendations, and present consumers with feeds that represent their own unique immersive media environments.

As of August ...

Independent Christian Colleges And Universities, William Vance Trollinger Apr 2018

Independent Christian Colleges And Universities, William Vance Trollinger

William Vance Trollinger Jr.

The category independent Christian colleges and universities is not a very large one. The reason for this is rather simple: as William Ringenberg has noted in the introduction to his helpful 1988 bibliography on such schools, "there are not many contemporary colleges and universities that are both continuing Christian in philosophical orientation and independent of denominational ties in governance." While this may change in the future, given the weakening of denominational loyalties among American Protestants, the fact remains that there are not too many independent Christian colleges.

For purposes of this essay I will I be looking at fourteen institutions ...

Augustine: Learning In Community, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2017

Augustine: Learning In Community, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

If all Western philosophy is a footnote to Plato as some have claimed, it might also be legitimate to suppose that all Christian philosophy of education is a footnote to Augustine.  After all, Augustine was the first to offer a systematic synthesis of ancient philosophy with biblical truth, and as Aristotle’s realism was a response to Plato’s idealism, Thomas Aquinas’ scholasticism was similarly a response to Augustine’s Christian liberal arts.  Though it has been nearly two millennia since this North African monk and bishop wrote and established his order of learning communities, Augustine’s writings and his ...


Thomas Aquinas: Theory Of Knowledge And Learning, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2017

Thomas Aquinas: Theory Of Knowledge And Learning, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

Though Thomas Aquinas’ theory of knowledge experienced a resurgence in Neo-Scholasticism—especially in traditional Catholic and in Protestant classical schools—its educational influence is currently minimal, limited to isolated pockets of educational traditionalism.  Why is this so?  An answer may be considered by examining the following: the historical context of Aquinas and of Scholasticism, Aquinas’ epistemological arguments related to the nature and acquisition of truth, the interplay of faith and reason in Aquinas’ theological arguments, and an assessment of Aquinas in light of current perspectives.  Such exploration will show that, while the ideas of Aquinas continue to be granted token ...


Søren Kierkegaard's Existentialism In Education: A Context Of Choice And Authentic Relationship, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2017

Søren Kierkegaard's Existentialism In Education: A Context Of Choice And Authentic Relationship, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

Though known primarily as a Christian theologian, philosopher, and apologist, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) has also greatly influenced the field of education through his existential notions of subjective knowledge, student choice, and an emphasis on the individual as thinker and believer.  At first, educators may find it a challenge to understand the complexities of his writings, but once they take the “leap,” they may discover that his approach to learning serves to inspire their practice.  They may not be familiar with his name, but educators will recognize Kierkegaard’s ideas as having influenced educational theory and practice throughout the past century ...


Jonathan Edwards: Educational Philosophy And Practice, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2017

Jonathan Edwards: Educational Philosophy And Practice, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

Most narratives on Jonathan Edwards describe his life experiences, family, education, conversion, ministry, and missions work with the Indians.  They identify him as an intellectual, theologian, and scientist.  Some accounts note his significance as an apologist, especially as he argued against Enlightenment thought, deism, and Unitarianism.  Primarily, he is presented as the famed Great Awakening preacher.  There is yet, however, another prominent role Edwards has played, and that is in the field of educational philosophy.  Though usually granted only token attention in typical foundations of education textbooks, Edwards’ theory of knowledge and of learning is deserving of much deeper study ...


Mcguffey Readers: Elementary School Reading Books, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2017

Mcguffey Readers: Elementary School Reading Books, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

With over 122 million copies sold from 1838 to 1920, the McGuffey Eclectic Readers taught more Americans to read than any other textbook. Initial publication coincided with a unique period in United States history as the West was settled, newly arrived immigrants assimilated, and the common school movement gained momentum. At this time, the nation was at a critical point of forming a distinct identity. These phenomena created a demand for textbooks that would not only meet the practical need for curriculum in developing schools but would also extend prevailing American values both to children new to the frontier and ...

Session A-2: She Fought For The Fatherland: Gender, War And Memory In The Soviet Union Subject: History, Kitty Lam Mar 2017

Session A-2: She Fought For The Fatherland: Gender, War And Memory In The Soviet Union Subject: History, Kitty Lam

Kitty Lam

John Keegan once wrote, “Warfare is…the one human activity…from which women have always and everywhere stood apart. Women…do not fight…and they never in any military sense, fight men” (John Keegan, A History of Warfare, 76). Yet in the Second World War, an estimated 120,000 Soviet women served in combat roles. This presentation uses photographs of women in combat and images of Soviet war monuments and to help students reconsider wartime division of gender roles. It also prompts students to examine how women’s contributions to war were commemorated in a country that supposedly championed gender ...


Session B-2: Pirates: Past And Present, Kitty Lam Mar 2017

Session B-2: Pirates: Past And Present, Kitty Lam

Kitty Lam

Piracy has endured for as long as maritime trade has existed. From the ancient Mediterranean world to the modern-day Somali coast, pirates have threatened merchant ships. The legacy of piracy has inspired countless songs, poems, novels, and movies. Who were pirates? What did they want? Where did they go? How did they interact with states? Students have internalized stereotypes about pirates from popular culture, but rarely consider these questions about piracy. This workshop will examine the significance of piracy in world history through texts and visual material. Case studies will be global, but focus on the early modern period.
