"Anything Dead Coming Back To Life Hurts": Ghosts And Memory In Hamlet And Beloved, Rebecca Boyd

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Ghost stories are an ingrained part of most cultures because, typically, humans must be forced to confront those elements of their individual and communal past that they would prefer to ignore. Accordingly, ghosts have embodied weaknesses and hidden evils that must be assimilated and transcended, and writers have embroidered a variety of subtexts upon the traditional fabric of ghostlore. Specifically, both William Shakespeare's Hamlet and Toni Morrison's Beloved employ ghosts as symbols of man's archetypal desire to hide his past. A careful examination of the texts in these ghost stories, of the cultural folklore included, and of ...

Native American Water Rights Development: Survival Of Indigenous Culture In The Face Ofenergy Development And Mineral Extraction In The Southwestern United States, Adrienne Phillips

Native American water rights have been established with the United States Supreme Court’s support over the last century. Water rights on reservation lands are a precarious and serious subject requiring investigation and quantification in order to ensure the survival of Native Americans. The Colorado River Basin provides an example of the need for the quantification of rights for reserved lands to obtain water required to manage and support the Native populations. Ecologically, culturally, and spiritually, Native Americans depend on the arid desert of the Colorado River Basin. Laws and the court system in America need to ensure the balance ...
