'The Drink Has Called It Into Being': A Year In A Wine Column, Moya Costello Oct 2010

'The Drink Has Called It Into Being': A Year In A Wine Column, Moya Costello

Dr Moya Costello

For a year, between 2009 and 2010, I wrote a wine-review column in a free regional newspaper as a passionate amateur. I conceive of the wine reviews as creative nonfiction and of myself as a role model for my students who have the option of writing on food. Genre has its courtiers and jesters and, in itself, it is bound for change as any other cultural phenomena. I think of my wine-writing practice as destablising that specific genre, attempting a transformation of it into an expanded field, via the efficacy of writing and wine as art. It is contentious to ...

After The Fall: Visions Of Women In Post-Apocalyptic Novels By Women Authors, Peter Adams Jul 2010

After The Fall: Visions Of Women In Post-Apocalyptic Novels By Women Authors, Peter Adams

Peter C.S. Adams

Stories about the apocalypse, or the end of the world as we know it, are as old as mythology. In most, if not all, world stories, there are visions of a great catastrophe marking the end of the world, sometimes permanent, sometimes marking a rebirth. However, detailing life after the apocalypse and the rebuilding of society is more recent. While the stories in world mythology frequently involve rebirth or renewal, they are not usually done from the viewpoint of the survivors dealing with the aftermath of the catastrophe. This article will discuss several such works by women authors.

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman Feb 2010

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study examines the storage versus composition of Spanish inflected verbal forms in first language (L1) and second language (L2) speakers of Spanish. L2 participants were selected to have mid-to-advanced proficiency, high classroom experience, and low immersion experience, typical of medium-to-advanced foreign language learners. Participants were shown the infinitival forms of verbs from either Class I (the default class, which takes new verbs) or Classes II and III (nondefault classes) and were asked to produce either first-person singular present tense or imperfect forms, in separate tasks. In the present tense, the L1 speakers showed inflected-form frequency effects (i.e., higher ...


1942 Women Writers At War, George T. Sipos Feb 2010

1942 Women Writers At War, George T. Sipos

George T. Sipos

With the beginning of the Pacific War in 1941, Japan seemed to be in full charge of its conquests and older colonies, Taiwan, Manchuria and Korea. Used as the premise for a comparison between writings of Korean and Japanese female writers, Ch’oe Chŏnghŭi`s Nogikushō (The Wild Chrysanthemum) is the main text analyzed in this article. The authors her work is compared with on the Japanese side are Sata Ineko, Hayashi Fumiko and Yoshiya Nobuko. The question the current article is trying to answer is why there are no good texts for comparison with Ch`oe`s work and ...


Bees In America: How The Honey Bee Shaped A Nation, Tammy Horn Dec 2009

Bees In America: How The Honey Bee Shaped A Nation, Tammy Horn

Tammy Horn

" Honey bees--and the qualities associated with them--have quietly influenced American values for four centuries. During every major period in the country's history, bees and beekeepers have represented order and stability in a country without a national religion, political party, or language. Bees in America is an enlightening cultural history of bees and beekeeping in the United States. Tammy Horn, herself a beekeeper, offers a varied social and technological history from the colonial period, when the British first introduced bees to the New World, to the present, when bees are being used by the American military to detect bombs. Early ...


Viable (A Letter Confessing My Own Lack Of Faith To My Newborn Son), Julie Hensley Dec 2009

Viable (A Letter Confessing My Own Lack Of Faith To My Newborn Son), Julie Hensley

Julie Hensley

Last January, in the minute and a half it took the ultrasound technician to pronounce that word, hours after I stood up from the sofa and felt the blood rush warm out of me, I thought about the moments when knowledge of your life was mine alone, when I had sat, heart-pounding, holding the confirmation of your presence inside me, frozen, unable or unwilling, to rise and begin the inevitable process of sharing you.
