French Influences On The Historical And Nationalist Thought Of Nicolae Balcescu: An Inquiry Into The Structure Of Romanian Nationalism, Ion Matei Costinescu Dec 1998

French Influences On The Historical And Nationalist Thought Of Nicolae Balcescu: An Inquiry Into The Structure Of Romanian Nationalism, Ion Matei Costinescu

Master's Theses

In the past decade nationalism has been conceptualized as a cultural artifact, a product of invention and social engineering. Yet despite the flourishing interest in questions of national identity, we still have no theory explaining the reasons why nationalism presents itself in a manifold diversity of forms and aspirations. One way of . accounting for the malleability of modern nationalism is to approach it as a product of dialectical interactions between various national ideals. In this respect, the case of Romanian nationalism is particularly instructive. Its nineteenth-century proponents consciously borrowed and adapted French cultural mores and ideological forms since they believed ...


A Critical Edition Of Anastasius Bibliothecarius' Latin Translation Of Greek Documents Pertaining To The Life Of Maximus The Confessor, With An Analysis Of Anastasius' Translation Methodology, And An English Translation Of The Latin Text, Bronwen Neil Nov 1998

A Critical Edition Of Anastasius Bibliothecarius' Latin Translation Of Greek Documents Pertaining To The Life Of Maximus The Confessor, With An Analysis Of Anastasius' Translation Methodology, And An English Translation Of The Latin Text, Bronwen Neil

Theses

Part I Anastasius Bibliothecarius, papal librarian, translator and diplomat, is one of the pivotal figures of the ninth century in both literary and political contexts. His contribution to relations between the eastern and western church can be considered to have had both positive and negative ramifications, and it will be argued that his translations of various Greek works into Latin played a significant role in achieving his political agenda, complex and convoluted as this was. Being one of relatively few Roman bilinguals in the latter part of the ninth century, Anastasius found that his linguistic skills opened an avenue into ...

Thompson Document 18: Letter From Henrietta Thompson To Bridget Croft, Henrietta Thompson Aug 1998

Thompson Document 18: Letter From Henrietta Thompson To Bridget Croft, Henrietta Thompson

Henrietta Thompson Papers

A final letter from Henrietta Thompson to Bridget Croft. It seems that the telephone conversation that prompted this letter was not an entirely felicitous one, and that Henrietta’s recommendation that Croft publish A Sense of Purpose was perhaps mistaken for a promise that Thompson would act on Croft’s behalf to that end.


Making An Early Medieval Ethnie: The Case Of The Early Slavs (Sixth To Seventh Century A.D. ), Florin Curta Aug 1998

Making An Early Medieval Ethnie: The Case Of The Early Slavs (Sixth To Seventh Century A.D. ), Florin Curta

Dissertations

This study approaches the problem of the early Slavs from the perspective of current anthropological theories on ethnicity. The relationship between material culture and ethnicity is also examined, with particular emphasis on the notion of style. The historiography of the subject is vast and its survey shows why and how a particular approach to the history of the early Slavs was favored by linguistically minded historians and archaeologists. The historiography of the early Slavs is also the story of how academic discourse was used for the construction of national identity.

The study of the written sources indicates that the history ...

Knox On Discipline: Revolutionary Zeal Or Rose-Tinted Nostalgia, Michael Graham Jun 1998

Knox On Discipline: Revolutionary Zeal Or Rose-Tinted Nostalgia, Michael Graham

Michael F. Graham

Overview John Knox is one of the towering figures of the European Reformation, his name synonymous with hard-line evangelical Protestantism, and his influence spreading far beyond his native Scotland. The present volume seeks to reassess Knox's career in the context of the European Reformation as a whole, but with particular reference to his impact in Scotland and England. The 13 distinguished contributors, all acknowledged authorities in the field, together provide what is undoubtedly the most significant reappraisal of Knox and his role in the British Reformations to have appeared for two decades. This book will be of particular interest ...

Gemeindegeschichte Als Vergleichende Geschichte: The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints In East Germany, Bruce W. Hall Jun 1998

Gemeindegeschichte Als Vergleichende Geschichte: The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints In East Germany, Bruce W. Hall

Theses and Dissertations

From 1945 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) endured the hardships of existing as a religious organization under a Communist regime. An evaluation of the LDS Church within the category of general and minority religions, which serves as a microcosmic evaluation of religion in the GDR, constitutes one part of this study. The uniqueness of the LDS Church and its experience - especially its American ties, ironically earlier a liability and later an asset - make it a candidate for a more independent ...

Northern Ireland Peace Talks: Endgames, Padraig O'Malley Mar 1998

Northern Ireland Peace Talks: Endgames, Padraig O'Malley

John M. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies Publications

With days to go before the Northern Ireland peace talks come to a formal close, things are, to use the immortal words ofFluther in Sean O'Casey's play, The Plough and Stars, "in a state of chasis."

Months of interminable bickering, the unwillingness of some parties to directly talk with others, a process in which it often appears that the key players spend more time trying to get one another thrown out of the process than with trying to bring those who are outside in, the insidious slide to more volatile sectarianism as armed extremists on both sides take ...


"J'Accuse ...! Emile Zola, Alfred Dreyfus, And The Greatest Newspaper Article In History, Donald E. Wilkes Jr. Feb 1998

"J'Accuse ...! Emile Zola, Alfred Dreyfus, And The Greatest Newspaper Article In History, Donald E. Wilkes Jr.

Popular Media

Last month marked the centennial anniversary of the greatest newspaper article of all time. Strangely, the American print and broadcast media barely mentioned the article or its importance or the astonishing story surrounding it. The article, by Emile Zola, the great French novelist, appeared in a Paris literary newspaper, L'Aurore (The Dawn) on Thursday, Jan. 13, 1898, "an essential date in the history of journalism," according to historian Jean-Denis Bredin. Written in the form of an open letter to the President of France, the 4,000 word article, entitled J'Accuse! (I Accuse!), rightly has been judged a "masterpiece ...

"Introduction" To European Immigrants In The American West: Community Histories, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1998

"Introduction" To European Immigrants In The American West: Community Histories, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

European immigrants are the forgotten people of the American West. Their stories are not told in the many books, paintings, and movies that have created the mythic West. Immigrants did not easily fit the image of the West as the bastion of unfettered individualism and self-reliance-a region peopled by the free, brave, and pure-battling against the urbanized, industrialized, a,nd economically dominant East. Nor do European immigrants populate the pages of frontier history. Ever since Frederick Jackson Turner opened the field a hundred years ago, general histories of the American frontier have tended to ignore them. Grounded on the Turnerian ...


Understanding French Grand Opera Through Dance, Maribeth Clark Jan 1998

Understanding French Grand Opera Through Dance, Maribeth Clark

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

This dissertation examines the reception of nineteenth-century French grand operas (ca. 1828-1879) at the Academie Royale de Musique in relationship to dance in order to understand how past choreographic practices inflected audiences' understandings of the spectacle. It focuses primarily on the music and the practices of the Parisian composer Daniel-François-Esprit Auber, and leans heavily on journalistic accounts of dance from the Revue Musicale, Le Ménestrel, and La France musicale to place his works in the context of more general practices and perceptions of operatic and choreographic works at this theater. These journalistic accounts, in combination with archival sources such as ...

The Cult Of Santiago: The Images And Legends Of Saint James And Their Significance In Modern Spain, Lisa Todd Jan 1998

The Cult Of Santiago: The Images And Legends Of Saint James And Their Significance In Modern Spain, Lisa Todd

Vahe Proudian Interdisciplinary Honors Program, Senior Honors Theses

Whether we see the stories of Santiago as myth or a matter of "real" history, the legends of the saint had, and still carry, great cultural, political, and religious significance. One focus of this essay is to identify ways in which myth makes cultural meaning. We cannot, therefore, define myth as "unreal and fantastic" while we define history as "real and valid". Not everything that happened in the past is historical fact. History, as with any form of narrative, is very much influenced by the teller and the medium through which it is told. The myths of Saint James very ...

Monarchist Clubs And The Pamphlet Debate Over Political Legitimacy In The Early Years Of The French Revolution, Paul R, Hanson Jan 1998

Monarchist Clubs And The Pamphlet Debate Over Political Legitimacy In The Early Years Of The French Revolution, Paul R, Hanson

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

On the morning of 14 December 1790, an angry crowd surrounded the royal prison in Aix en-Provence and forced the release of the marquis de la Roquette and the avocat au parlement Jean Joseph Pascalis. Led by militant members of the Club des anti-politiques, a radical club in Aix composed largely of artisans, the crowd escorted the two men through the streets of Aix to the elegant Cours Mirabeau, where each was hanged by a rope from a street lantern. Later that day the same fate befell Andre-Raymond Guiramand, an elderly chevalier of St. Louis who in recent days had ...

“Migrations Of Ethnic Unmixing In The New Europe, Rogers Brubaker Dec 1997

“Migrations Of Ethnic Unmixing In The New Europe, Rogers Brubaker

Rogers Brubaker

To the extent that ethnicity or nationality has been relevant to the study of migrations to, from or within Europe in the last century and a half, the focus has been on migration as a 'heterogenizing' process, one important consequence of which has been to introduce or increase ethnic or national heterogeneity in the receiving countries. This article addresses a different, and neglected, link between migration and ethnicity or nationality in Europe. It explores migrations of "ethnic unmixing" or "ethnic affinity."
