Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley 2009 DePaul University

Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

Global poverty has received significant attention in the past decade, particularly after the adoption of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals in 2002. Commentators and ethicists like Peter Singer have long held that the wealthy of the world have an obligation to help the poor. While the sentiments may be positive, there are real harms that have come from this kind of top down thinking. Subsidiarity, to the contrary, is a much more realistic and morally tenable approach to global poverty.

Kind Participation: Postmodern Consumption And Capital With Japan's Telop Tv, Aaron Gerow 2009 Yale University

Kind Participation: Postmodern Consumption And Capital With Japan's Telop Tv, Aaron Gerow

Aaron Gerow

Analyses the phenomenon of subtitles (more properly called "telop") on Japanese television, especially variety programming. Critically using Ota Shoichi's work on owarai (especially the boke and tsukkomi in manzai) and Azuma Hiroki's work on database consumption, I argue about how Japanese TV not only reads itself, but encourages viewers to contribute their labor as readers to enhance the value of the televisual commodity.


Religion-Based Claims For Impinging On Queer Citizenship, Donn Short, Bruce MacDougall 2009 University of British Columbia

Religion-Based Claims For Impinging On Queer Citizenship, Donn Short, Bruce Macdougall

Bruce MacDougall

Competing claims for legal protection based on religion and on sexual orientation have arisen fairly frequently in Canada in the past decade or so. The authors place such competitions into five categories based on the nature of who is making the claim and who is impacted, the site of the competition, and the extent to which the usual legal and constitutional norms applicable are affected. Three of the five categories identified involve a claim that a religion operate in some form in the public area so as to impinge on the usual protection of equality on the basis of sexual ...

As audience members make sense of media texts, they construct interpretations based on their individual perspectives. The film Crash portrays many instances that allowed for sustained audience discourse about culture and ethnicity, gender, and race and racism.

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge 2009 Selected Works

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

A controlled language is a natural language, as opposed to an artificial or constructed language. Natural languages such as English or German are languages that are used by humans for general communication. A controlled language differs from the general language in two significant ways: 1. The grammar rules of a controlled language are typically more restrictive than those of the general language. 2. The vocabulary of a controlled language typically contains only a fraction of the words that are permissible in the general language.

Ockham's Theory Of Natural Rights, Siegfried Van Duffel, Jonathan Robinson

Siegfried Van Duffel

Ockham's theory may well be the most influential medieval predecessor of contemporary theories of human rights. We suggest that it was also in a better condition than its descendants.

Discursive Constructions Of Global War And Terror, Adam Hodges 2009 Carnegie Mellon University

Discursive Constructions Of Global War And Terror, Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

In this chapter, I examine the dialogic connections involved in the global interchange of ideas about terrorism and the ‘war on terror.’ Discourse moves across national boundaries in a manner that shapes global relations and actions, and reshapes the dialogue that takes place within local contexts. To explore these processes, I discuss three contexts in detail. In the first, I examine recent work by Zala Volcic and Karmen Erjavec on the appropriation of the Bush administration’s ‘war on terror’ discourse by Serbian intellectuals (Volcic and Erjavec 2007, Erjavec and Volcic 2007). These young Serbs incorporate this discourse into their ...
