This work studies the identities of Jewish people who are also a part of the LGBTQ community. It examines the conflict that many LGBTQ Jews feel between these two identities and how this conflict decreases these people's involvement in the Jewish community. Looking from the Jewish community side we examine how the Jewish community has responded to this problem and how they are working to better integrate their LGBTQ members into their community.

Religion War: Judaism's Impact On The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Marissa Mark, Richard Morisette, Jennifer Rosio, Jack Willerton 2020 University of Dayton

Religion War: Judaism's Impact On The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Marissa Mark, Richard Morisette, Jennifer Rosio, Jack Willerton

Content presented at the Roesch Social Sciences Symposium

The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict has been a major issue since 1948 when the Israelis and Palestinians engaged in a Civil War. One of the driving factors in the conflict is the religious affiliation from each side, with Jewish Israelis clashing with Muslim Palestinians. While religion has been a driving force for hostility, religion can also be seen as a beacon of hope and peace. In our research, we have found that religious affiliation from the Israeli side tends to result in more positive attitudes towards their Palestinian counterparts. In our research, we investigated three major fields: Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology. By ...

The Academic Achievement Of Dual Language Learning Preschoolers, Madisen Brewer

Content presented at the Roesch Social Sciences Symposium

The proposed research is designed to address major deficits in the knowledge regarding the development of dual-language learners in the U.S. preschool setting, including the lack of information about the impact of free choice play with non-dual-language learning peers and the absence of descriptive data on the social interactions that occur during free play as such. The focus of the study is on the dual-language learners’ growth of executive functioning skills and English language development across the preschool year, in relations to their social interactions during free play with non-dual-language learning peers. The participants will be 50 dual-language learning ...

The Relationship Of Classroom Variables And Academic Achievement Across The Preschool Year, Olivia LeBlanc 2020 University of Dayton

The Relationship Of Classroom Variables And Academic Achievement Across The Preschool Year, Olivia Leblanc

Content presented at the Roesch Social Sciences Symposium

Preschool education is designed to foster school readiness among three to five-year-old children before entering kindergarten. Past research suggests that elements of the classroom, such as quality of teacher-child interactions, can influence the development of academic and social skills during the preschool year. Utilizing data from a longitudinal correlational study, the current study investigates the relationship between classroom variables and academic achievement throughout the preschool year. The findings suggest that there is a significant relationship between classroom variables and student outcomes, which calls for further research investigating the importance of high-quality preschool programs for young children.

Research Questions:

  1. What is ...

4 paws is a nonprofit organization that trains and places service dogs with children to increase the independence of the child and assist the families.

Why Does This Work Matter? Without volunteers, 4 Paws would be unable to operate as an organization. Kids like the boy to the left who at the age of three was diagnosed with autism and struggles with communication, anxiety, and wandering off would not be able to seek comfort in a service dog.


Religion In Modern Sports Fanaticism: From Classical Antiquity To Online Sports Forums, Matthew Prokopiw 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Religion In Modern Sports Fanaticism: From Classical Antiquity To Online Sports Forums, Matthew Prokopiw

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In tracing the concept of religion to its theorization and study by French sociologist Émile Durkheim this dissertation presents concrete and abstract support for a commonly forwarded proposition: fanaticism of the modern spectacle of sports amounts to religiosity, characterized by a social logic of vitality and totemism, notably present as well in the ancient Roman spectacle and Greek agōn. Based in the contemporary theory of French sociologist Michel Maffesoli, following Durkheim and the study of the sacred by Le Collège de Sociologie, this dissertation contributes an immersive and critical investigation into the nascent but encompassing online dimension of fanaticism of ...

State Sanctioned Violence Across Latinx, Black, And Arab And Muslim Communities In A Post-9/11 America, Nourel-Hoda Eidy, Ronnie Alvarez, Madeline Simone

The Macksey Journal

Following the inauguration of President Trump, communities are witnessing an increase of vocal anti-immigrant sentiment. Immigration enforcement is moving away from solely the border and into the heartland of America, spreading throughout the Midwest states. Latinx communities, particularly, are experiencing this escalation of immigration enforcement, which has been characterized by hypermilitarized activity and a return to local police collaboration. While the increase in interior immigration enforcement is perhaps unique in scale, state violence against communities of color has historical precedents in the U.S., including in Black and Arab and Muslim communities. We consider the experiences of immigration enforcement, police ...

A Missionary On A Mission: David Zeisberger And His Work With The Lenape People, Kate A. Dobbs

The Macksey Journal

Devout Moravian missionary Ziesberger felt as though his sole purpose in life was to spare the “ignorant” Native Americans from being damned in Hell. Yet, Zeisberger used progressive and peaceful conversion means. He would forge the closest relationship to the Lenape people of any missionary. He would live within their communities, translate German and English hymns into the Lenape’s native language, publish several texts in Lenni Lenape, and host prayer services in Lenni Lenape. Zeisberger would use his devout devotion and passion to spread Christianity among the Lenape people. He would stand by them through trials and tribulations, which ...

Family Integrated Care (FICare) has been widely adopted in Denmark as a framework for caring for infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), enabling parents to take on an active role in the care of their infant, while the NICU staff takes on a more supporting and educating role when possible. The purpose of this paper is to provide an autoethnographic account describing the personal experience of living in a NICU with a preterm infant for the duration of 76 days from the perspective of a first-time mother. The autoethnographic method provides the reader with a detailed description of ...


Centaur Mind: A Glimpse Into An Integrative Structure Of Consciousness, Azin Izadifar 2020 California Institute of Integral Studies

Centaur Mind: A Glimpse Into An Integrative Structure Of Consciousness, Azin Izadifar

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Jean Gebser’s theory of consciousness suggests that we are experiencing a new era in the history of consciousness. Human consciousness moves like a pendulum. The current Integral Structure of Consciousness is not unprecedented, yet we are experiencing it in a multi-layered, deeper, and vaster way. Centaurs are imaginal creatures that first appeared within the Mythical Structure of Consciousness, making a bridge between the unity of the Magical and the duality of Mental structures. In this paper, I view the centaurs through the lenses of mythology and archetypal depth psychology and discuss the critical role of this mythic figure in ...
