The War Without A Name: The Use Of Propaganda In The Decolonization War Of Algeria, Benjamin J. Sparks 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

The War Without A Name: The Use Of Propaganda In The Decolonization War Of Algeria, Benjamin J. Sparks

Theses and Dissertations

The Algerian war for independence, 1954-1962, also known as the War Without a Name due to its lack of recognition as a war by the French government, remains an indelible scar on the face of France. The Algerian war represents one of the most critical moments in modern French history since the French Revolution (Le Sueur 256), putting into question the motto of the French republic, "liberté, égalité, fraternité". This thesis will show that although the French won the war militarily they lost the war of ideas, that of propaganda and persuasion. Thus, this thesis will demonstrate that propaganda by ...


Sacred Union And Sacred Violence In Tournier's Gilles Et Jeanne, David Doyle Drake 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

Sacred Union And Sacred Violence In Tournier's Gilles Et Jeanne, David Doyle Drake

Theses and Dissertations

Written in 1983, the novella Gilles et Jeanne seems to be one of Michel Tournier's simpler works at first glance. Yet, for all of its simplicity, Tournier does not repress his desire to lace the tale with metaphoric and metaphysical symbolism. It is through a symbolic marriage on the battlefield that Tournier links the two characters in a sort of mystical union. All of the crimes following this ritual that precipitated Gilles descent into depravity were in fact an attempt to reunite with the departed spirit of his "spouse", either by mimetically recreating the circumstances of her death, or ...

Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Em 16 de Dezembro de 2010 faleceu o jurista argentino que o Brasil sobretudo adoptou, Luis Alberto Warat. Era um iconoclasta, um heterodoxo. Este artigo é uma primeira evocação do seu pensamento, inseparável da sua própria vivência do Direito. Se crescermos na nossa cultura jurisfilosófica, um dia será considerado analfabeto em Direito quem não conhecer bem Warat. Se estagnarmos ou regredirmos, será um desconhecido, e nem sequer ilustre.


O Céu No Bolso, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

O Céu No Bolso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Há quem preveja ainda o fim do livro. Contudo, cada vez mais livros se publicam todos os anos. Há quem deplore a falta de leitura, mas mais e mais pessoas são alfabetizadas, e lêem. Qualquer coisa não bate certo. Percentagens? Tipo de livros? Seja como for, um novo protagonista entra em cena: o e book. Mal amado também pelos mais conservadores. E contudo...


Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

O Professor Fernando Pereira Marques deu a lume um novo livro: Sobre as Causas do Atraso Nacional (Lisboa, Coisas de Ler, Dezembro de 2010). Não poderia haver reflexão mais oportuna. É uma vasta e documentadíssima reflexão, uma preocupação por Portugal não assente em impressões e preconceitos, mas em dados e em testemunhos eloquentes e credíveis. Podem abalar certezas, e sem dúvida desfazem mitos.


Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Vivemos num mundo em grande medida imaginado. Nunca foi tão real a criação artificial de realidades, que se tornam realidades mesmo. O mundo das Finanças é um desses reinos. O problema é que elas afectam - e de que maneira - a vida real das pessoas. E a comunicação social é o eco dessa magia, de que dependemos cada vez mais, por todo o Mundo. Este artigo tem como base o publicado no semanário "Grande Porto", mas acrescenta-lhe um pequeno texto de Paulo Bonavides sobre a ligação entre democracia e Estado social. É que sem um e outra, é impossível suportar a ...


La Recherche Du Bonheur Dans La Possibilité D'Une Île De Michel Houellebecq, Anthony Zielonka 2011 Assumption College

La Recherche Du Bonheur Dans La Possibilité D'Une Île De Michel Houellebecq, Anthony Zielonka

Modern and Classical Languages and Cultures Department Faculty Works

L'œuvre entière du romancier contemporain, Michel Houellebecq, représente une interrogation réitérée de l'idée de la recherche du bonheur, telle qu'elle est poursuivie par l'être humain de nos jours. Cette étude est une analyse des formes que prend cette recherche désespérée et angoissée du bonheur dans le roman le plus récent de Houellebecq, La Possibilité d'une île (2005). Au cours d'une analyse textuelle de passages-clés du roman, l'on se demandera de quelles manières le romancier s'interroge sur les formes que peut revêtir, dans un monde postmoderne et post-utopique, cette poursuite du bonheur, qui ...

Une Nouvelle Voix Narrative À La Recherche De Son « Moi », Kasongo Mulenda Kapanga

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

Trente ans après les crises d'indépendances, l'Afrique a connu des secousses particulièrement paralysantes dont le prix en vies humaines se mesure au nombre élevé de personnes décimées par des fléaux tels que la famine, les épurations ethniques, les guerres, les génocides et la mauvaise gouvernance. Devant cette tragique situation, l'art, en tant qu'expression du beau, se vide de son attrait sous la pesanteur de l'anormal (l'horreur) qui nécessite, sinon une réparation imminente, tout au moins une dénonciation immédiate. Se sentant abandonnée à son propre sort - l'élite a misérablement échoué - le petit personnage issu ...

From The Middle Ages To Modernity: The Intersecting Supernatural Worlds Of Melusine And Today's Popular Culture, Sarah Stark 2011 Ouachita Baptist University

From The Middle Ages To Modernity: The Intersecting Supernatural Worlds Of Melusine And Today's Popular Culture, Sarah Stark

Honors Theses

While some may scoff at fairy tales as juvenile, primitive, or superstitious, they have always held a special fascination for me, and I am not alone in this- stories about magicians, monsters, and mythical creatures have captivated their audiences' imaginations for thousands of years. Feeling myself consistently drawn toward this type of story, I began several months ago to study supernatural tales from the medieval era as well as those popular today, and I have since discovered numerous worlds in which the natural and supernatural coexist. Creatures seemingly human are, in fact, sometimes more-or less, depending on one's perspective ...

Le restaurant traditionnel suit une formule sur laquelle les dîneurs peuvent toujours compter pour leur repas. Les dîneurs entrent dans la salle à manger, souvent avec une réservation, et le maître d’hôtes leur montre la table. Puis ils regardent la carte et commandent les plats qu’ils veulent au serveur. Les convives à table discutent de la vie ou du travail pour le reste du repas. Le restaurant décoré et arrangé selon un thème qui crée une ambiance dans la salle.

L’Autre Exotique Et Le Moi Curieux Dans Les Lettres Persanes De Montesquieu Et L’Immoraliste D’André Gide, Alexandra Nazari 2011 Claremont McKenna College

L’Autre Exotique Et Le Moi Curieux Dans Les Lettres Persanes De Montesquieu Et L’Immoraliste D’André Gide, Alexandra Nazari

CMC Senior Theses

A look into representations of the Orient in the work of Montesquieu and Gide.

On lit pour connaître des autres mondes ; quelque chose qui est au même temps loin et tout près de la vie ordinaire. Il y a des épopées qui nous emportent aux endroits inconnus et des romans qui révèlent les petits moments de pathos caché sous l’événement les plus quotidiens. Pour moi, la littérature française servit comme la meilleure moyenne de comprise ce beau lange et histoire intellectuelle. Toutefois, l’histoire de la littérature française s’enrichit par les influences prononce du monde oriental. Par exemple ...

Framing The “Minor” In Marjane Satrapi And Vincent Paronnaud's Persepolis, Stacey Weber-Fève 2011 Iowa State University

Framing The “Minor” In Marjane Satrapi And Vincent Paronnaud's Persepolis, Stacey Weber-Fève

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Satrapi’s work illustrates, on various levels, current debates in the profession surrounding the boundaries of twenty-first-century French and Francophone studies. For example, her texts both directly and indirectly treat in varying degree issues concerning fragmented societies and cultures; intermedial or splintering forms of artistic and cultural production; political and ethnographic boundary transgression; and continuities and differences in racial, sexual, and gender consciousness. These issues are all at the forefront in calls for papers from recent preeminent conferences in the field; including but not limited to the 2009 Modern Language Association Annual Meeting and the 2009 20th- and 21 ...
