Receptions Of The Classics In The African Diaspora Of The Hispanophone And Lusophone Worlds, Elisa G. Rizo, Madeleine M. Henry Sep 2016

Receptions Of The Classics In The African Diaspora Of The Hispanophone And Lusophone Worlds, Elisa G. Rizo, Madeleine M. Henry

World Languages and Cultures Books

Atlantis Otherwise expands the study of the African diaspora by focusing on postcolonial literary expressions from Latin America and Africa. The book studies the presence of classical references in texts written by writers (black and non-black) who are committed to the articulation of the fragmented history of the African experience from the Middle Passage to the present outside of Euro-centric views. Consequently, this book addresses the silencing of the African Diaspora within the official discourses of Latin America and Hispanic Africa, as well as the limitations that linguistic and geographic boundaries have imposed upon scholarship. The contributors address questions related ...

Glocalizing Democracy Through A Reception Of The Classics In Equatorial Guinean Theatre: The Case Of Morgades’ Antígona, Elisa G. Rizo

World Languages and Cultures Books

Born in 1931, Equatorial Guinean academic and intellectual Trinidad Morgades1 has seen the transition of her country from a Spanish colony to an independent nation. She has witnessed the emergence of postcolonial regimes and the transformation of her country's economy from one based on cacao and timber production under the Spanish colonial administration to one centered on a booming oil industry in postcolonial times.2 Her only published literary work, Antigona (1991), a drama referencing Sophocles's famous tragedy, is concerned with a crucial national process that she has observed: the failure of the democratic efforts in her nation.

"Black People Don't Tip": Racism In The Restaurant Industry, Hortance E. Houngbeke Jan 2016

"Black People Don't Tip": Racism In The Restaurant Industry, Hortance E. Houngbeke

Undergraduate Research Posters

Due to discrimination, waiters are less likely to provide good customer service to their black dinners solely based on the assumption that they are poor tippers. The theory of discrimination is the foundation of this observational study where attentiveness is measured to reflect waiters’ avoidance of African American diners. Assuming waiters start with their preconceived notions about Black customers, this research will use the critical race theory to determine if waiters are less attentive to African American diners. To further understand the subtle discriminatory behavior of waiters toward African Americans, this study analyzes observational data from a sample of waiters ...


African Masks From The Collection Of James Gaasch, James Gaasch Jan 2016

African Masks From The Collection Of James Gaasch, James Gaasch

Trade & Scholarly Monographs

African Masks from the Collection of James Gaasch contains photographs of the African masks and carvers from the Bwa (or Bwaba), Winiama and Mossi peoples of Burkina Faso, and the Bamana and Dogon peoples of Mali. Gaasch acquired many of these masks in the villages where they were carved. When possible, he interviewed the village carvers, the creators, of these dancing masks. Gaasch’s interviews with the carvers underscore the cultural context where traditional African world views persist. And, to the extent possible, they give voice to the masks to reveal their own significance. “They are, in our times, signifiers ...

At the helm of the August Wilson 20th century cycle is Gem of the Ocean (2003).

Arab Americans And Their Communities Of Cleveland, Mary Haddad Macron Jan 1979

Arab Americans And Their Communities Of Cleveland, Mary Haddad Macron

Cleveland Memory

The author of this monograph has made a contribution in describing the progress of the Syrian and Lebanese American community in the Cleveland area. These same experiences were similarly reflected in many other communities throughout the land, including my own. This monograph includes not only the early history of these people from their origins in the Mediterranean, it focuses particularly on their daily lives as immigrants to America -- and on the difficulties they encountered in trying to maintain their traditional institutions in a new land. –Excerpt from the Introduction by Danny Thomas, Founder of St. Jude's Children's Research ...
