A New Crusade Or An Old One?, Heather J. Sharkey Jun 2003

A New Crusade Or An Old One?, Heather J. Sharkey

Departmental Papers (NELC)

Scholars frequently acknowledge the force of political Islam in shaping the Muslim societies of Africa and Asia, but seldom consider the role that Christian activism has played in these societies, particularly in the context o f Western imperialism and globalization. Of central importance here is the history of Christian missionary attempts to convert Muslims in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries - a period when the British, French, and Dutch colonial powers lent their protection to European and American evangelical groups that operated within their overseas empires.


Attitude Changes Resulting From A Course In Middle East History, Aaron Imig May 2003

Attitude Changes Resulting From A Course In Middle East History, Aaron Imig

Master of Education Program Theses

This study explored the change in high school students' cultural acceptance of Islamic peoples after a semester long course in Middle East History. Ten senior high school students in a small Christian high school were tested in knowledge, visual perception, and cultural attitudes before and after the semester course. Final data collection suggests that the population size for this study needed to be larger and more diverse. The results were not significant enough to indicate attitudes were changed over the course of the semester. There was not a positive correlation found between knowledge gained by the students and the resulting ...


The Justice Of War On Iraq, Brian Stiltner Mar 2003

The Justice Of War On Iraq, Brian Stiltner

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

The author argues that the U.S. and its partners have rightly arrived at war on Iraq as a just and necessary last resort. The potential problems with the just-war case are notable, particularly concerning the after-effects of the war, but they do not incurably undermine the case for going to war. Instead, both supporters and critics of the war around the world should strive to keep their governments committed to post-war reconstruction and a transition to a free and stable government in Iraq. Several just war criteria, particularly as these are articulated in the Catholic tradition, are used to ...

A Different Shade Of Colonialism: Egypt, Great Britain, And The Mastery Of The Sudan [Review], Heather J. Sharkey Jan 2003

A Different Shade Of Colonialism: Egypt, Great Britain, And The Mastery Of The Sudan [Review], Heather J. Sharkey

Departmental Papers (NELC)

In A Different Shade of Colonialism, Eve M. Troutt Powell examines Egypt's ambiguous relationship with the Sudan in the period from approximately 1800 to the late 1920s. She suggests that this relationship was complicated by Egypt's position as a "colonized colonizer" - that is, as an imperial power in the Nile Valley which itself became vulnerable first to French and later to British colonialism. Powell focuses on Sudan- or Sudanese-related commentaries by key Egyptian thinkers, including travelers, journalists, and others, many of whom (such as Rifa'a Rafi' al-Tahtawi, Mustafa Kamil, and Huda Sha'rawi) played prominent roles in ...


The Boundaries Of The Law And The Problem Of Jurisdiction In An Early Palestinian Midrash, Natalie B. Dohrmann Jan 2003

The Boundaries Of The Law And The Problem Of Jurisdiction In An Early Palestinian Midrash, Natalie B. Dohrmann

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

In this paper I look at one particular exegetical complex through which, I will argue, the rabbis grapple with the question of legal jurisdiction and the status of revelation in the shadow of Roman legal hegemony. I will try to show that rabbinic midrash in its literariness (that is, as a source for the history of ideas, rather than a repository of more or less viable data for reporting history on the ground) is a valuable site for mining the mentalité of tannaitic culture (to the extent that we can posit such a thing), and specifically of tannaitic constructions of ...
