The Impact India’S Socio-Cultural Environment Has On Its Residents Perceptions On Homosexuality., Harpreet Manko 2019 Rowan University

The Impact India’S Socio-Cultural Environment Has On Its Residents Perceptions On Homosexuality., Harpreet Manko

Student Research Symposium Posters

While homosexuality exists in all civilizations of life and has been seen in various perspectives by all peoples, it is often seen as a taboo subject matter. Especially when considering the more religious, rather heteronormative environment that is seen in Indian communities. With my research, it is with this research that one will hope to learn what it is about India's socio-cultural environment that puts homosexuality in such a negative light.


Once Upon A Time...When A Revolution Evolved To A Civil War In Syria, Crystal M. Myers 2019 St. John Fisher College

Once Upon A Time...When A Revolution Evolved To A Civil War In Syria, Crystal M. Myers

The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research

This paper gives an overview of how the conflict in Syria has evolved from a revolution into a sectarian civil war. Power is maintained by the ruling Assad family through promotion of the Alawite minority within the government and military. Methods of persecution on the Sunni majority by the Assad government are discussed as well as a policy of strategic expulsion of the Sunni enclave to Idlib, a city on the outskirts of Syria (bordering Turkey).

Ten Commandments Of Teaching: A Culminating Education Project, Charlene Martin 2019 Oral Roberts University

Ten Commandments Of Teaching: A Culminating Education Project, Charlene Martin

Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Christians in Higher Education

During a senior capstone course in instructional methods, teacher candidates participated in a discussion regarding what the essentials are for good teaching in light of biblical principles—a discussion integrating biblical principles and content knowledge acquired as they progressed through the College of Education. Genesis 1:26-28 indicates that mankind was created to rule over God’s earth in His name. Arguably, this mandate is the basis for all civilizations and cultures. From this perspective, one purpose of school could be to give students power tools for exercising dominion; school prepares students for work and their work declares the Glory ...


Missa Arirang: A Fusion Of Korean And Western Music, Imgyu Kang 2019 Oral Roberts University

Missa Arirang: A Fusion Of Korean And Western Music, Imgyu Kang

Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Christians in Higher Education

This article examines Korean nationalism in Cool-Jae Huh’s Missa Arirang; this sense of nationalism is an extension of a movement that began in the late 19th century. Missa Arirang utilizes elements from Arirang, a popular Korean folk song, in the context of a Missa, or Mass; the work consequently follows the typical structure of a Mass Ordinary. The first movement, Kyrie, morphs from Western to contemporary Korean style using predominantly Western techniques. The Gloria, which follows, symbolically brings peace between two feuding provinces by blending together their respective Arirang traditions, and the Credo continues to allude to provinces by ...

Chinese Arts: Visualizing The World Through The Taoist Eye, Harrison Nickels 2019 Ohio Wesleyan University

Chinese Arts: Visualizing The World Through The Taoist Eye, Harrison Nickels

Student Symposium

Over the centuries of Chinese tradition, abundant art works were created as expressions of people’s views of life and as indications of the way they observed and understood the natural and human world around them. These works, therefore, are of grand importance for scholars today to glean information on the social, cultural, political, and economic environments of the time. Among the schools of the arts, quite a few had been under the influence of the Taoist philosophy. Specifically, the Taoist inherent concern with the passivity of life found its way in the works of artists, which, in a variety ...


History, Security, And Peace: A Comparison Of Sectarian Conflicts In Northern Ireland And The Middle East, Ahmed I. Hamed, Noah Chamberlain Spicer 2019 Ohio Wesleyan University

History, Security, And Peace: A Comparison Of Sectarian Conflicts In Northern Ireland And The Middle East, Ahmed I. Hamed, Noah Chamberlain Spicer

Student Symposium

“The Troubles,” a violent conflict that began in Northern Ireland in 1968 and lasted until the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, saw high levels of violence and terrorism on both sides--Protestants and Catholics--of the socio-political conflict. While major issues of violence were addressed by the Good Friday Agreement, many key ontological issues remain very much alive and active, resulting in “peace walls” which separate Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods in Northern Ireland. The impediments to peace stem not just from these issues of violence, but also from the minimal attention paid to ontological security in peace negotiations: the security of oneself ...


The Protective Nature Of Religiosity Against Suicidal Ideation In African-Americans, Hannah Sylvester 2019 Carroll College

The Protective Nature Of Religiosity Against Suicidal Ideation In African-Americans, Hannah Sylvester

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

This systematic review was conducted to examine if religiosity has a protective role against suicidal ideation (SI) in African-Americans. Articles from PUBMED involving religiosity, SI, and African-Americans were sorted and analyzed. These articles were screened on exclusion and inclusion criteria, yielding 11 articles. Higher religiosity was strongly correlated with lower instances of SI in the African-American population. In 10 of the 11 analyzed articles, religiosity was protective against SI. In seven of these, the effect was statistically significant. Intrinsic religiosity was shown to be more protective than extrinsic. In African-Americans, religiosity was strongly correlated with lower SI. The strength of ...


To See God - Analyzing Christian Perceptions Of God, George Nemie 2019 Carroll College

To See God - Analyzing Christian Perceptions Of God, George Nemie

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

In this study, the perceptions of God that two traditionally Catholic theologians held were compared in an analytical style for the purpose of discerning whether such perceptions, as seen in their literary works, varied greatly from each other or were vastly similar. These two individuals were Dante Alighieri, author of the Divina Commedia, and St. Gregory of Nyssa, a 4th century Catholic mystic. For the purposes of academic focus, Canto XXXIII of Dante’s Paradiso and selected sections of Gregory of Nyssa’s Life of Moses were examined.


Caring For Mind, Body, Heart, And Spirit: A Holistic Model Of Ministry, Sierra A. Gramm 2019 Carroll College

Caring For Mind, Body, Heart, And Spirit: A Holistic Model Of Ministry, Sierra A. Gramm

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

Every human is made up of mind, body, heart, and spirit. In the medical realm, there is a tendency to focus only on the biology, or the physical aspects of an illness. Within the last 100 years, more and more emphasis has been placed on the need of medicine to deal with the whole person. In ministry, similar reform has also begun. Instead of focusing solely on the spiritual, ministers strive to see the whole person and the many needs that an individual has. The Bible offers compelling stories that highlight the needs of the whole person. The evidence in ...
