Reforming The Organisation Of The Islamic Conference? Implications For Religious Dialogue And Political Pluralism In Southeast Asia, R. Ferguson Sep 2012

Reforming The Organisation Of The Islamic Conference? Implications For Religious Dialogue And Political Pluralism In Southeast Asia, R. Ferguson

R. James Ferguson

Extract:
Islamic politics remains at the centre of international relations in the early 21st century, with important implications for regional processes in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Eurasian-Central Asian affairs. One mechanism for the aspirations of states with Muslim majorities and communities is the OIC, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, now with 57 members and several observers. The OIC also has organisational linkages with NAM (the Non-Aligned Movement), the UN, the League of Arab States, the Economic Cooperation Organisation, the AU (African Union) and indirectly with ASEAN. Likewise, the MNLF (Moro National Liberation Front) and Turkish Cyprus secured ...

Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay Dec 2009

Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

The “couple standing before offerings” pose first appeared at Naga-ed-Deir in the First Intermediate Period and gradually rose in popularity at that site. Its appearance at Thebes in the late Eleventh Dynasty coincided with reunification; similarly, it first occurred at Abydos at the beginning of the Twelfth Dynasty, as Amenemhet I was consolidating his control of the north. As the Twelfth Dynasty progressed, however, stelae production became more and more standardized, and the pose ultimately dropped out of use. Thus, as this paper will show, tracing the rise and spread of the “couple standing before offerings” pose enables us to ...

Parallelism In The Correspondence Between Senwosret I And Sinuhe, Jacqueline Jay Dec 2009

Parallelism In The Correspondence Between Senwosret I And Sinuhe, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

Poetic parallelism (the repetition of grammatical, semantic, and/or phonetic elements) is prevalent throughout the Tale of Sinuhe, occurring both in the tale’s narrative and in its non-narrative sections, including the exchange of letters between Senwosret I and Sinuhe. This paper analyzes the parallelism in these letters, exploring the rhetorical impact produced by the inclusion of parallel elements and suggesting ways in which an awareness of the poetic structure of the letters increases our understanding of specific passages and of the tale as a whole.

The United States And Iran, Michael Zirinsky Oct 2009

The United States And Iran, Michael Zirinsky

Michael Zirinsky

Since the 1978-79 revolution and emergence of an Islamic Republic, America has been transfixed by images of Iran fomenting terror against the US. Ironically, before 1978 most Americans knew nothing about Iran, leading President Carter famously to praise it, on the eve of upheaval, as an island of stability in the midst of a sea of turmoil. Sad to say, many Iranians also have a hostile view of America, based not on the beneficent idealism which characterized US policy in the Middle East before the Second World War, but on American Cold War activism, including sponsoring a 1953 coup d ...

The Narrative Structure Of Ancient Egyptian Tales: From Sinuhe To Setna, Jacqueline Jay Dec 2007

The Narrative Structure Of Ancient Egyptian Tales: From Sinuhe To Setna, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

Among the vast number of texts to have survived from ancient Egypt, the corpus of literary tales forms one of the most well-known and extensively studied groups. Thus far, however, analyses of the tales have focused on individual texts and language phases without examining the relationship between tales of different phases. My dissertation addresses this gap, examining how changes in grammar from phase to phase affected how a tale was told. This project focuses on three phases of the ancient Egyptian language: Middle Egyptian, Late Egyptian, and Demotic. Chapter 1 surveys prior scholarship and outlines the methodology of the project ...

Religious Literature Of Late Period And Greco-Roman Egypt, Jacqueline Jay Dec 2006

Religious Literature Of Late Period And Greco-Roman Egypt, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

Although Egypt was ruled by foreigners during most of the Late and Greco-Roman periods, native religious traditions remained strong and the period witnessed the production of a wide variety of religious texts written in the Egyptian language. This article presents many of the major religious texts of Egypt's Late and Greco-Roman periods and comments on the trends of continuity and change that they suggest. It is divided into three sections. The first discusses texts written on temple walls or on papyri stored in temple scriptoria which speak to the ritual and theological activities of the priesthood. The second examines ...

Imperial Power And Dictatorship: Britain And The Rise Of Reza Shah, 1921–1926, Michael P. Zirinsky Oct 1992

Imperial Power And Dictatorship: Britain And The Rise Of Reza Shah, 1921–1926, Michael P. Zirinsky

Michael Zirinsky

Born in obscurity about 1878 and soon orphaned, Reza Pahlavi enlisted at fifteen in a Russian-officered Cossack brigade. Rising through the ranks, he provided force for a February 1921 coup d'etat, seizing power for journalist Sayyid Zia alDin Tabatabai. Reza Khan provided strength in the new government and rose from army commander to minister of war (April 1921) to prime minister (1923) and, after failing to make a republic in 1924, to the throne in 1925. As shah he ruled with increasingly arbitrary power until Britain and Russia deposed him in 1941. He died in exile in 1944.1 ...
