Religion In The Classroom, Allison Kay Carey 2010 University of Northern Iowa

Religion In The Classroom, Allison Kay Carey

Honors Program Theses

When most people hear that one wants to increase the study of religions in a public high school most think that it will infringe on the constitutional rights of the students, but this is not the case. "Teaching about religion in the schools is often confused with the teaching of religion, or religious advocacy and indoctrination." This quotation describes why the study of religion has been left out, but it is imperative to understand why the study of religion is so important in a 21st century education. Diane L. Moore gave five main reasons why she felt students need to …

Tops Off To Dancing: An Exotic Form Of Nightlife, Jessica Sanspree 2010 Western Kentucky University

Tops Off To Dancing: An Exotic Form Of Nightlife, Jessica Sanspree

Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

This ethnographic research investigates the culture of exotic dancing in two exotic dance clubs in Bowling Green, Kentucky. By conducting interviews with a former exotic dancer and completing ethnographic observations in the field of an exotic dance club, I explore how exotic dancers in Bowling Green create and perform sexuality as a method of making money. I examine the rules and regulations, such as "Dancer's etiquette," established and enforced by dancers in order to enforce social order. Furthermore, I assess my informant's perception of identity regarding her role as an exotic dancer, including her reaction to the negative stigmas that …


Renewing The Motivation Of The Devonshire Seventh-Day Adventist Church To Become A Missional Community Through The Biblical Alignment Of The Church's Spirituality, Passion, And Ministries, Errol N. McLean 2010 Andrews University

Renewing The Motivation Of The Devonshire Seventh-Day Adventist Church To Become A Missional Community Through The Biblical Alignment Of The Church's Spirituality, Passion, And Ministries, Errol N. Mclean

Professional Dissertations DMin

Problem. Churches experiencing plateau or even decline often arrive at that stage in their life cycle because they are no longer fulfilling the great commission. They have lost their spiritual vitality, vision, and a purpose for mission. The challenge is renewing in this context a vision for growth and a commitment to ministry to the lost. This project details how this challenge was responded to at the Devonshire Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Method. Identifying that the church was in the plateau stage of its life cycle was fundamental to approaching the problem. A theological foundation was established as a first step …

Identidades Por Negociar: La Presentación De La Piel Humana En La Fotografía De René Peña., Ilka Kressner 2010 University at Albany, State University of New York

Identidades Por Negociar: La Presentación De La Piel Humana En La Fotografía De René Peña., Ilka Kressner

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Faculty Scholarship

This paper analyzes several works by Cuban photographer René Peña from the point of view of his depiction of the human skin. Peña, one of Cuba’s most renowned photographers, with an impressive list of exhibits in Cuba, the US, and Europe, became known as an artist of sharp and formalistic black and white photographs, mostly focusing on the human body. Through his idiosyncratic staging and estranging juxtapositions on the photographic paper, Peña’s work is never solely artistic: it challenges for instance the binary opposition between black and white, the concept of fixed sexualities, or the process of aging.

In many …

Poemas Del Caer—El Motivo Del Vértigo En Las Obras De Edgardo Dobry, Roxana Crisólogo Y Ylonca Nacidit-Perdomo, Ilka Kressner

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Faculty Scholarship

La poesía hispanoamericana actual, este “asunto tan vasto y heterogéneo” (Andrés Sánchez Robanya) es un fenómeno difícil de captar en su conjunto. No obstante, la crítica ha señalado algunos rasgos comunes de la producción lírica los últimos 20 años. Esos son, entre otros, el uso del habla coloquial, descripciones casi fenomenológicas del día a día en las grandes urbes o los barrios humildes y la inclusión de temas de actualidad, muchas veces expresados desde una óptica antiglobalizadora. Las denominaciones (en parte asignadas por los críticos, en parte de los poetas mismos) ponen en relieve el impacto de lo cotidiano y …

Circulation And Consumption: Transnational Mass Tourism In Cancun, Mexico, Christine Vassallo-Oby 2010 University at Albany, State University of New York

Circulation And Consumption: Transnational Mass Tourism In Cancun, Mexico, Christine Vassallo-Oby

Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Studies Faculty Scholarship

Cancun’s packaged image of paradise is a dynamic and constantly flowing contestation of identity and livelihood for those involved in the service sector. Indigeneity is used as spectacle, prop, and entertainment in the tourism industry and is especially popular in mass tourism zones like Cancun. Circulation of not only bodies, but theory surrounding authenticity and indigeneity, are all represented in the hyper-commodification that defines mass tourism. Cancun uses transnational connections for marketing of space, goods, and people that are in a constant state of circulation. Looking at the rise of the tourism industry in Cancun processually leads us to explore …

Reality, Skewed, Kathleen Camerlin 2010 Bridgewater State University

Reality, Skewed, Kathleen Camerlin

Undergraduate Review

Don DeLillo’s novel White Noise explores basic human connections and illustrates how they shift when viewed through the lens of post-modernity. The protagonist, Jack Gladney, tries to validate and substantiate his own existence through the connections he forges not only with his job and studies but also with his family, attempting to find meaning in the way his relatives interact with each other and their post modern world, where it is “no longer possible to distinguish meaningfully between a generality embedded in life and a generality represented in representations of life” (Frow 420). In this fracturing, consumer-driven, postmodern world, what …


Early American Literature In The Elementary School Classroom, Amanda Sullivan 2010 Bridgewater State University

Early American Literature In The Elementary School Classroom, Amanda Sullivan

Undergraduate Review

The goal of the American educational system should be to teach an individual to become an independent thinker who can form his or her own view. This goal is very hard to obtain, because textbooks often provide a skewed view, but if educators make creative use of literature, students can learn to become independent thinkers. Students need to acquire this deeper understanding in order to learn critical literacy or the ability to “question, examine or […] dispute” texts (McLaughin 14). One important tool educators can use to help develop this critical capacity is literature, in particular literature about slavery. Grade …


The Evolution Of The Swastika : From Symbol Of Peace To Tool Of Hate, Lindsey L. Turnbull 2010 University of Central Florida

The Evolution Of The Swastika : From Symbol Of Peace To Tool Of Hate, Lindsey L. Turnbull

HIM 1990-2015

Few figures in the history of the Americas are surrounded with more colorful lore and acclamation than the Cuban politician, teacher, patriot, and poet Jose Marti. Among Marti's literary contributions, his Ismaelillo, a collection of fifteen poems published in 1882, claims prominence as both Marti's first book of poems and as a seminal Latin American text. Celebrated for its sincere communication of paternal love and lauded as the genesis of Hispanic literary modernism, Ismaelillo captures the longing of an exiled father separated from his son and homeland. Its language is at once evocative of classical Spanish literature and innovative, incorporating …


Knowledge And Skepticism In Descartes’ Meditations, Scott Campbell 2010 Bridgewater State University

Knowledge And Skepticism In Descartes’ Meditations, Scott Campbell

Undergraduate Review

My research is centered on the arguments of Rene Descartes, a 17th Century philosopher, in his work The Meditations. The Meditations is composed of six entries, which are six meditations, written in form of narration. His narrative takes form in an intricately composed piece of writing, a clever argument presented through a precise and fascinating procedure. However, the artful fashion in which he conveys his method is far from an immaculately composed calculation which Descartes leads one to believe. In this paper I will present Descartes’ procedural destruction and following reassembly of the external world and his proposed discovery of …


The Visions Of Lena Younger Created By Lorraine Hansberry In A Raisin In The Sun, Lizandra Gomes 2010 Bridgewater State University

The Visions Of Lena Younger Created By Lorraine Hansberry In A Raisin In The Sun, Lizandra Gomes

Undergraduate Review

This is one chapter of a full Honors’ Thesis entitled “The Visions of Women Created by Three Major Female African American Playwrights of the Twentieth Century: Georgia Douglas Johnson, Lorraine Hansberry, and Suzan-Lori Parks”. This chapter addresses the vision of Lena Younger created by Lorraine Hansberry in A Raisin in the Sun. It analyses the vision of African American women emerging through the character of Lena Younger, during the Civil Rights Movement by employing traditional dramaturgical methodology, including facets of Literary Structural Analysis, and Stanislavskian Analysis. This study in its whole will, thus, demonstrate how the self-perceived image of African …


The Changes In Irish Dance Since Riverdance, Angelika Masero 2010 Western Kentucky University

The Changes In Irish Dance Since Riverdance, Angelika Masero

Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

During the past 15 years, traditional Irish step dance experienced dramatic changes. As a traditional dance form, Irish step dance lends itself to and is dependent upon innovation and change; it is a living and flexible art form, and thus, change is expected and necessary to keep it novel, fresh and progressive. However, its “traditional” signature is now a focus of debate as its “modern” signature gets explored and as traditional Irish dance scholars study the impact touring Irish dance shows have caused. The seven-minute interval act Riverdance during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest ignited the debate. Moreover, the rate …
