International Terrorism And Television Channels:Operation And Regulation Of Tv News Channel During Coverage Of Terrorism, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Dec 2012

International Terrorism And Television Channels:Operation And Regulation Of Tv News Channel During Coverage Of Terrorism, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

The concept of globalization or internationalization of certain wars, which were result of terrorist activities worldwide , as well as the high attention of terrorism coverage broadcast worldwide might open up better opportunities to journalists – particularly to those who work in democratic countries like U.S.A and India – to improve their coverage. The context is the key: the context of the operation methodology, follow of guidelines of regulatory bodies,and of the journalistic culture and of the global environment. It is very important how media presents consequences of terrorist acts, how information is transmitted to public. Television and press have ...


The Ms Of My Kin, Janet Holmes Dec 2012

The Ms Of My Kin, Janet Holmes

Janet A. Holmes

"If you write out "The Poems of Emily Dickinson" and erase some of the letters very neatly and precisely, you can get to The ms of m y kin—the manuscript of my kin, as it were; the manuscript of my family. It might also be said to be the manuscript of my kind. The practice of erasure was most famously accomplished (and perhaps invented) by the British artist Tom Phillips in his book A Humument (an erasure of a Victorian novel titled A Human Document) and later, by the American poet Ronald Johnson, who erased Milton's Paradise Lost ...

Contemplating Writing A Book?, Marcia Anderson, Thomas Mickey, Stephen Nelson, Erin O'Connor

Stephen J. Nelson

The process of writing a book can be daunting, but many of our Bridgewater State College faculty are accomplished book authors. Authors’ published works include a clinical allied medical textbook, a monograph and documentary history reader, academic scholarly books, and popular works. This panel of authors will share their perspectives on the following questions regarding the process of writing a book: 1) why did you decide to write a book and how did you know the time was right, 2) what were the first steps once you made the decision, 3) how did you find a publisher, 4) how did ...

Darwish And The Meaning Of Palestine, Leila Farsakh Nov 2012

Darwish And The Meaning Of Palestine, Leila Farsakh

Leila Farsakh

Darwish's poetry was a central part of what is to be a Palestinian and to be an Arab. By weaving the personal and the political, Darwish gave a voice to the Palestinian struggle for self determination, as much as to the human inner quest for love and survival. I grew up learning his poems, hearing them sung by famous Arab singers, repeated in worldwide demonstrations of solidarity with the Palestinian people. His departure left me, and a whole generation of Arabs, deeply bereaved for his death represented not simply the loss of a great poet, but also the necessity ...

Freedom Of Media In India: A Weapon To Kill Enemies Or Protection Guard For Public-The Two Sides, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

[When it] is completely silenced... all means of a general effort [are] taken away." --Thomas Jefferson "Right to Freedom of Speech and Expression" is a fundamental right of the citizens of India. This is mentioned in Part III of the Constitution of India - Article 19(1). This Article is so wide in scope that Freedom of the Press is included in Freedom of Speech and Expression.

The Candle, Winston Langley Sep 2012

The Candle, Winston Langley

Winston E. Langley

This is a keynote statement by Winston Langley, Provost, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, and Professor of International Relations at UMass Boston, opening the special 2009 issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge dedicated to the memory and poetry of Mahmoud Darwish (1941-2008), the national poet of Palestine. In Provost Langley's view this issue of the journal merits the qualifying expression "special," because of the person it seeks to honor, the grounds that have invited that honor, the included voices of those who have sought to be part of this honoring, and the underlying spirit of ...

Telling God’S Sanction : Storytelling In The Narrative Journalism, Memoirs, And Creative Nonfiction Of Rick Bragg, Jennifer Nicole Sias

Jennifer N Sias

Self-described paid-storyteller and Pulitzer-Prize-winning-narrative-journalist, Rick Bragg has used the storytelling techniques he learned from his people to write two best-selling memoirs that redefine the boundaries of the genres of memoir and creative nonfiction. His speakerly texts combine the voices of the working class of the Alabama foothills of Appalachia, his own voice as a member of this culture, and his narrative journalistic voice. In his works, Bragg has managed not only to carve a place for the voice of the working class, but also to celebrate and preserve the oral culture, history, and beautiful language of his people, the working ...

A Review Of "Moonrise: The Power Of Women Leading From The Heart", Marianne Rogoff Sep 2012

A Review Of "Moonrise: The Power Of Women Leading From The Heart", Marianne Rogoff

Marianne Rogoff

Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart offers the multi-hued perspectives of our most prominent leader-activists, thinker-mothers, scientist-economists,doctor-healers, and poet-philosophers. Editors Nina Simons and Anneke Campbell have assembled a motivating collection of essays and stories describing personal responses by women and a few men to our generously abundant yet sometimes unjust world. Reading them, a collective voice emerges: one of rage over profiteering destruction of the natural world, vast economic imbalances, and oppression of the powerless, leavened by warmth, humor, and studious knowledge of the interwoven complexity of systems that can both serve and destroy. These people ...


Explicating Poetry: Shakespeare's Sonnet 46, Adam Kotlarczyk Aug 2012

Explicating Poetry: Shakespeare's Sonnet 46, Adam Kotlarczyk

Adam Kotlarczyk

The term “explication” comes from a Latin participle of explico, which means to “unfold” or “disentangle.” The term is often applied to philosophy and to literature; in literature, it has become a procedure very important to New Criticism. In the process of explication, a reader forges a detailed analysis of the structural and figurative components within a work, focusing on ambiguities, multiple possibilities of interpretation, and interrelationships between various elements of the text. This lesson introduces students to explication through the reading of a complex poem, practice explicating it as a class, and reading a model explication about the poem ...
