“Texts Memorized, Texts Performed: A Reconsideration Of The Role Of Paritta In Sri Lankan Monastic Education.”, Jeffrey Samuels Dec 2005

“Texts Memorized, Texts Performed: A Reconsideration Of The Role Of Paritta In Sri Lankan Monastic Education.”, Jeffrey Samuels

Philosophy & Religion Faculty Publications

During the past twenty years there has been a growing interest in monastic education within the larger field of Buddhist studies. Within the last ten years in particular, a number of monographs and articles examining the training and education of monks in Korea (Buswell [1992]), Tibet/India (Dreyfus [2003]), Thailand/Laos (Collins [1990], McDaniel [2002, 2003]), and Sri Lanka (Blackburn [1999a, 1999b, 2001] Samuels [2002]), have been published. Many of those works have paid particular attention to the texts used in monastic training, as well as to how the information contained in those very texts is imparted to and embodied ...

Politics And Prayer In West Perrine, Florida : Civic Social Capital And The Black Church, Susan Oltman Fink Nov 2005

Politics And Prayer In West Perrine, Florida : Civic Social Capital And The Black Church, Susan Oltman Fink

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis traces the mechanisms and sources responsible for the generation of civic social capital (a set of shared norms and values that promote cooperation between groups, enabling them to participate in the political process) by black churches in West Perrine, Florida. Data for this thesis includes over fifty interviews and participant observations, archival records, newspaper articles, and scholarly journals.

Despite the institutional racism of the first half of the twentieth century, many blacks and whites in Perrine developed levels of trust significant enough to form an integrated local governing body, evidence of high levels of csc. At mid-century, when ...

Artists And Their Social Networks, Metropolitan Philadelphia, 2004, Susan C. Seifert, Mark J. Stern, Mehreen Zaman Oct 2005

Artists And Their Social Networks, Metropolitan Philadelphia, 2004, Susan C. Seifert, Mark J. Stern, Mehreen Zaman

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

This paper reports the rationale, methodology, and findings of SIAP's Philadelphia Area Artists Survey 2004. SIAP undertook the survey as a first step toward the documentation and understanding of the region’s artists and their social networks. The study had four objectives: to address a gap in the literature by doing an empirical study of the social networks of artists; to document the informal dimensions of artists’ networking in metropolitan Philadelphia; to test methodologies to identify the universe of artists in the region and analyze their network strategies; and, finally, to advance SIAP’s understanding of the role of ...


The Dynamics Of Cultural Participation: Metropolitan Philadelphia, 1996 - 2004, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert Oct 2005

The Dynamics Of Cultural Participation: Metropolitan Philadelphia, 1996 - 2004, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

This paper uses data on over 800,000 cultural participants in 1996 and 2004 to examine changes in patterns of cultural participation over these years. The authors discover a consistent pattern in which areas of metropolitan Philadelphia with a large number of cultural organizations are those most likely to have high rates of participation. The connection between institutional presence and cultural engagement was one of SIAP’s first discoveries in the mid-1990s and remains one of its most durable findings.

With respect to change over time, there were also unexpected findings. Participation became more tied to both social class and ...


‘Natural’ Cultural Districts: Arts Agglomerations In Metropolitan Philadelphia And Implications For Cultural District Planning, Susan C. Seifert, Mark J. Stern Oct 2005

‘Natural’ Cultural Districts: Arts Agglomerations In Metropolitan Philadelphia And Implications For Cultural District Planning, Susan C. Seifert, Mark J. Stern

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

As older cities and towns retooled to accommodate post-industrialism, cultural districts have become popular strategies to promote tourism, revive downtowns, revitalize neighborhoods, and generally boost the local economy. While entertainment centers are hardly new to urban life, the cultural district as economic stimulus has become increasingly standard equipment in the planners’ toolbox. The typical district is “a well-recognized, labeled, mixed-use area of a city in which a high concentration of cultural facilities serves as the anchor or attraction.” Thus the cultural district is a strategy for simulating arts “consumption” and “event-related spending”, but planning largely ignores the production needs of ...


Artists In The Winner-Take-All Economy: Artists' Inequality In Six U.S. Metropolitan Areas, 1980 – 2000, Mark J. Stern Oct 2005

Artists In The Winner-Take-All Economy: Artists' Inequality In Six U.S. Metropolitan Areas, 1980 – 2000, Mark J. Stern

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

This paper addresses the implications of the winner-take-all economy for income inequality among artists. Using the U.S. census public-use samples, as refined by the Minnesota Population Center, it employs the standard measure of income inequality—the Gini coefficient—to examine income inequality among artists in six major metropolitan areas between 1980 and 2000. The paper compares income inequality among artists with that of other professional workers and among individual categories of artists. Finally, it examines inequality through the lens of ethnicity and gender.

The paper concludes that artists are an ‘old’ winner-take-all occupation. In 1980 artists displayed an unusually ...


Gauging The Informal Arts Sector Metropolitan Philadelphia, 2004, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert, Mehreen Zaman Oct 2005

Gauging The Informal Arts Sector Metropolitan Philadelphia, 2004, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert, Mehreen Zaman

Dynamics of Culture—2003-2005

The uncertain state of the traditional nonprofit has sparked interest in unincorporated cultural associations to maintain the vitality of the cultural sector. Despite increasing interest in and qualitative study of the role of the unincorporated groups and individuals in cultural production and participation, there are no data that allow assessment of their importance to the overall cultural sector.

In this paper, SIAP takes an alternative strategy for estimating the informal arts sector. The authors use a representative sample of artists to ask what proportion of artists’ professional activities takes place in the for-profit, nonprofit, and informal sectors. The analysis is ...

El Movimiento De Mujeres Y El Estado Nicaragüense: La Lucha Por La Autonomía, Sarah Moberg Oct 2005

El Movimiento De Mujeres Y El Estado Nicaragüense: La Lucha Por La Autonomía, Sarah Moberg

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

El Movimiento de Mujeres ha sido un movimiento social vital, diverso e influyente en la historia de Nicaragua, comenzando a mediados del siglo veinte. Ha tenido tres etapas en su evolución, bajo las tres diferentes estructuras del Estado: la dictadura Somocista, el gobierno Sandinista, y los gobiernos neoliberales. Durante las tres etapas, el Movimiento tuvo cambios en sus agendas, sus debates, su membresía y su forma de organización. La relación con el Estado es un gran factor en el rumbo de un movimiento social. Ha influido en las estrategias políticas y las formas de participación, las cuales también han influido ...
