Harm Or Mere Inconvenience? Denying Women Emergency Contraception, Carolyn McLeod 2010 The University of Western Ontario

Harm Or Mere Inconvenience? Denying Women Emergency Contraception, Carolyn Mcleod

Philosophy Publications

This paper addresses the likely impact on women of being denied emergency contraception (EC) by pharmacists who conscientiously refuse to provide it. A common view—defended by Elizabeth Fenton and Loren Lomasky, among others—is that these refusals inconvenience rather than harm women so long as the women can easily get EC somewhere else nearby. I argue from a feminist perspective that the refusals harm women even when they can easily get EC somewhere else nearby.


Teaching And Learning With Traditional Indigenous Knowledge In The Tall Grass Plains, Kathleen J. Martin, James J. Garrett 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Teaching And Learning With Traditional Indigenous Knowledge In The Tall Grass Plains, Kathleen J. Martin, James J. Garrett

Ethnic Studies

“I Could Still See Her In My Mind’S Eye”: Water And Maternal Imagery In Uwe Johnson’S Anniversaries: From The Life Of Gesine Cresspahl, Caroline Rupprecht 2010 CUNY Queens College

“I Could Still See Her In My Mind’S Eye”: Water And Maternal Imagery In Uwe Johnson’S Anniversaries: From The Life Of Gesine Cresspahl, Caroline Rupprecht

Publications and Research

This article analyzes the writings of East German author Uwe Johnson (1934-84) in terms of his experimental style—specifically transitions between descriptive passages—in conjunction with maternal imagery, as discussed through reference to Susan Suleiman’s concept of a “1.5 generation” of Holocaust survivors. A non- Jewish German author, Johnson addresses German history from the position of the perpetrators, yet born in 1934, he experienced National Socialism from the point of view of a child. In his tetralogy, Anniversaries: From the Life of Gesine Cresspahl (1970-83), feelings of guilt and attempts to understand the German past are negotiated through ...

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson 2010 Kennesaw State University

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson

KSU Press Legacy Project

"Running of Full" is a well-written account of twin sisters, Ruth and Ruby Crawford, who in their long lives made marks in every field of endeavor they undertook. Through the proverbial glass ceilings in law, banking, accounting, they rose to be among the first women bank officers in the country. Their stewardship and devotion to community and national causes, like the Humane Society, are legend. Often called "the 24-hour Crawfords," Ruth and Ruby were known as much for their prodigious energy as they were for their wit and charm.


Haitian Protestant Views Of Vodou And The Importance Of Karacte Within A Transnational Social Field, Bertin M. Louis Jr. 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Haitian Protestant Views Of Vodou And The Importance Of Karacte Within A Transnational Social Field, Bertin M. Louis Jr.

Anthropology Publications and Other Works

The ways that some Haitian Protestants view of Vodou and the importance of karactè (character) have emerged as two interrelated and fundamental aspects of Haitian Protestant worldview within a transnational social field. First, many Haitian Protestants believe the practice of Vodou since the Bwa Kayiman ceremony is the main reason why Haiti is mired in a socioeconomic crisis. Second, the development of a Haitian individual’s karactè through Haitian Protestantism is seen by a growing number of Haitian Protestants in the Bahamas, Haiti and the United States as a remedy that can transform the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere ...


Imagination And Representation In Graphic Novels, Louann Reid 2010 Colorado State University

Imagination And Representation In Graphic Novels, Louann Reid

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Graphic narratives are garnering both scholarly and pedagogical attention. These visual texts move readers imaginatively into what Maxine Greene calls “illusioned worlds,” and simultaneously make them conscious of the constructed nature of those worlds through the visual and verbal conventions of comics.
