The Ghost of Milagro Creek begins in the  barrio in the rugged and mystical landscape of New Mexico, where the enchantments of a curandera called Abuela cannot spare three young people from a tragic love affair that ends in murder.


Confucius, Joseph A. Adler 2009 adlerj@kenyon.edu

Confucius, Joseph A. Adler

Joseph Adler

The man we call Confucius was the founder of a religio-philosophical tradition that became almost synonymous with Chinese culture. From the second century BCE to the beginning of the 20th century “Confucianism” (Rujiao, literally “the teaching of the scholars”) was the official ideology of the Chinese imperial government and the reigning philosophy of education. As such, its values eventually permeated all levels of Chinese society. Confucius thereby became a cultural icon and a symbol for both the glories and the failures of traditional Chinese culture.

On the Borderline” is an original play co-written by theatre academic-practitioner Dr Clara Armand (New Buckingham University, UK) and Sally Wyatt.

Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Evolution Of Ba "Hegemon" Theory, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Everyone knows that the ba institution, the Jou Kings’ delegation of power to a series of strong vassals, was important in Spring and Autumn China.1 Unfortunately for this consensus, the Chun/Chyou (CC), our primary source, does not mention the ba institution. The later Dzwo Jwan (DJ) does mention it, and uses three different terms for it: mv ng-ju, [hou]-bwo, and ba! . None of these terms appears in the CC. I find that the three DJ terms reflect three stages in the evolution of the ba theory, and that the theory is not an 07th century historical fact ...


Lechem Hara (Bad Bread), Lechem Tov (Good Bread): Survival And Sacrifice During The Holocaust, Carolyn S. Ellis 2009 University of South Florida

Lechem Hara (Bad Bread), Lechem Tov (Good Bread): Survival And Sacrifice During The Holocaust, Carolyn S. Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

In Judaism, human nature is understood as existing on a spectrum between yetzer hara (evil inclination) and yetzer tov (good inclination). Jews struggle to suppress the yetzer hara and exercise the yetzer tov. Based on an oral history interview and co-created by a survivor of the Holocaust and a researcher, this story focuses on bread (lechem) and hunger in a Polish ghetto. The narrative encourages reflection about good and evil and about the tangled intermingling of the generosity of self-sacrifice and the instinctive drive for survival.

Enfiefment Renewal In Lu, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Enfiefment Renewal In Lu, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Three times in the Chun/Chyou chronicle, the Jou King confers a mandate (ming ) on a Lu ruler. The details of these incidents shed light on the nature of Jou enfiefment, as it persisted after the loss of Jou military power in 0771.


Mwodz 17-19 "Against War", A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Mwodz 17-19 "Against War", A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

The MZ 17-19 essays expound a well-known and characteristic tenet of Micianism. They share with MZ 14-16 the fact that each essay is twice the length of the preceding (successively 425, 1,172, and 2,016 words).1 As a supplement to my previous studies,2 I here consider the structure and rhetorical strategy of each essay, to show that (1) each is complete in itself, in further refutation of the fragment theory, and that (2) the series is developmental, in further refutation of the idea that they are parallel but geographically separate versions of the same thing.3

¿Es El Mismo Inca? Figura Del Inca En La Nueva Corónica De Guamán Poma De Ayala Y Los Comentarios Reales De Garcilaso De La Vega, Americo Mendoza-Mori

Americo Mendoza-Mori

Desde el proceso de escritura hasta en sus interpretaciones sobre el mundo andino, las obras del Inca Garcilaso
y Guaman Poma ofrecen diferentes perspectivas que el presente trabajo intentará exponer, específicamente en lo relativo a la construcción de la figura del Inca.
El personaje del Inca según los Comentarios reales aparece con el ente ordenador d cual se inten  equiparar con el esquema occidental para finalmente ideali r! . En  cambio la Nueva Corónica  apuesta  por deconstruir hasta cierto punto esta imagen idealizada en pos de definir la cosmovisión andina de manera heterogénea y descentrada.
Mediante un análisis comparativo, verificaremos la ...
