La France Et Le Plurilinguisme: Deux Opposés Qui S'Attirent? Une Étude De L'Enseignement Et De L'Apprentissage Des Langues Étrangères En France., Rachel L. Lorch

Senior Independent Study Theses

Dans un monde si interconnecté que le nôtre, la capacité de bien communiquer et d’échanger de l’information avec des autres devient indispensable. Ainsi, le rôle des langues étrangères dans une variété de sociétés représente un sujet très pertinent. Cette étude se focalise sur l’enseignement et apprentissage des langues étrangères en France. Je voulais savoir si les Français sont vraiment en retard en ce qui concerne l’apprentissage des langues étrangères, surtout en comparaison avec les autres pays d’Europe. Pour répondre à cette question, j’analyse l’histoire de la politique linguistique en France, une variété de ...

The Temptation Of Sherlock Holmes: Aesthetics, Expectations, And The Gothic, Sarah M. Davin Jan 2016

The Temptation Of Sherlock Holmes: Aesthetics, Expectations, And The Gothic, Sarah M. Davin

Senior Projects Spring 2016

This thesis will be concerned with challenging the preconceptions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, and how different readings of the text are revealed when those preconceptions are challenged. While the character of Sherlock Holmes is often considered as very scientific in nature, this thesis will attempt to challenge this, suggesting alternative readings of Holmes that might situate the character within a literary tradition rather than pretending that the Holmes character can somehow be psychoanalyzed or that his work as a detective in a text somehow directly interacted with the real world. By focusing on ...


The Fallen, The Broken, And The Resilient, Ka Po Leung Jan 2016

The Fallen, The Broken, And The Resilient, Ka Po Leung

Senior Projects Spring 2016

The conventional wisdom of the Great War is that it was a disaster on all fronts and that the terrors of the war overshadowed any redeeming qualities. The Great War was an epoch of mass infrastructural damage, civilian life turmoil, reckless political and economic decisions, and the horrors of modern warfare. The literature and memoirs on the Great War were dominated by the idea of “The Lost Generation”. “The Lost Generation” encompasses the broken and the fallen. The fallen soldiers were those who tragically died by the grips of the battlefield. The broken soldiers are defined as the ones who ...

De 'Niños De La Guerra' A Jóvenes Soviéticos: Educación, Aculturación Y Paternalismo, 1939-1945, Karl D. Qualls

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

En este artículo se aborda la huida de la guerra civil protagonizada por casi tres mil niños entre 1937 y 1938, analizando cómo se emanciparon de las escuelas fundadas para ellos en la Unión Soviética y se incorporaron a la educación superior o a la mano de obra. Los estudios españoles previamente publicados recogen numerosos testimonios orales, pero no explotan los cuantiosos archivos de Moscú. Este trabajo, en cambio, emplea tanto fuentes rusas como testimonios orales españoles para mostrar de qué manera estas escuelas soviéticas fracasaron en la preparación de los estudiantes de cara a la vida adulta e independiente ...

Flight Of The White Feather: The Expansion Of The White Feather Movement Throughout The World War One British Commonwealth, Kimberly Elisa Stevens Jan 2016

Flight Of The White Feather: The Expansion Of The White Feather Movement Throughout The World War One British Commonwealth, Kimberly Elisa Stevens

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The historiography of the First World War in Great Britain has focused mainly on military matters, leaving home front experiences temporarily unexplored. While the soldier’s experience remains invaluable to historians, studies of women and the home front are significant. The White Feather Campaign, which called for women to give white feathers denoting cowardice to men in civilian dress, who allegedly had not enlisted, remains vivid in British historical memory, but few scholarly works have examined it thoroughly. Historians such as Nicoletta F. Gullace and Susan R. Grayzel have shed light on British women in the war, but there remains ...

CALVARY OR CATASTROPHE? FRENCH CATHOLICISM’S FIRST WORLD WAR

Arabella L. Hobbs

Professor Gerald Prince

The battlefield crucifixes that lined the Western Front powerfully connected industrialized warfare with the Christian past. This elision of the bloody corporeality of the crucifixion with the bodily suffering wrought by industrial warfare forged a connection between religious belief and modern reality that lies at the heart of my dissertation. Through the poignancy of Christ’s suffering, French Catholics found an explanatory tool for the devastation of the Great War, affirming that the blood of the French dead would soon blossom in rich harvest. This ...

The Royal Navy's Employment Of Black Mariners And Maritime Workers, 1754-1783, Charles R. Foy Dec 2015

The Royal Navy's Employment Of Black Mariners And Maritime Workers, 1754-1783, Charles R. Foy

Charles Foy

The Royal Navy has been portrayed as an institution that embodied liberty, regularly
employing and relying upon blacks to keep its vessels afloat and to implement Britain's
blue water policy. Despite the critical role black naval seamen played, their employment
was shaped more by regional practices than by Admiralty edicts. The result was that blacks
were often treated inequitably. Black seamen had less access to pension benefits and
were not promoted in the same numbers as working-class white seamen. In England and
New York, blacks were largely kept out of royal dockyards and received less favourable
compensation than whites ...
