Faculty Diversity, Kyle Scafide, Barbara Johnson Aug 2002

Faculty Diversity, Kyle Scafide, Barbara Johnson

Kyle Scafide

This article presents a broad view of issues related to faculty diversity. Headings include Demographics, The Growth of Faculty Diversity as an Ideal, and Barriers in the Academic Workplace.

Higher education institutions are generally concerned with ...

Conjoined Twins And Catholic Moral Analysis: Extraordinary Means And Casuistical Consistency, M. Cathleen Kaveny May 2002

Conjoined Twins And Catholic Moral Analysis: Extraordinary Means And Casuistical Consistency, M. Cathleen Kaveny

M. Cathleen Kaveny

This article draws upon the Roman Catholic distinction between “ordinary” and “extraordinary” means of medical treatment to analyze the case of “Jodie” and “Mary,” the Maltese conjoined twins whose surgical separation was ordered by the English courts over the objection of their Roman Catholic parents and Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, the Roman Catholic Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. It attempts to shed light on the use of that distinction by surrogate decision makers with respect to incompetent patients. In addition, it critically analyzes various components of the distinction by comparing the reasoning used by Catholic moralists in this case with the reasoning ...

Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch Dec 2001

Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch

Todd Gooch

This volume is a collection of fourteen essays, all but one of which were published separately between 1993 and 2000. Although the volume does not present a singe, sustained critique of onto-theology, or a systematic defense of the postmodern Christian faith alluded to in the title, each of the articles does contribute to Westphals' over-arching aim, which is to appropriate certain central themes of postmodern philosophy for the task of Christian thinking.

Rara! Vodou, Power And Performance In Haiti And Its Diaspora, Elizabeth Mcalister Dec 2001

Rara! Vodou, Power And Performance In Haiti And Its Diaspora, Elizabeth Mcalister

Elizabeth McAlister

Rara is a vibrant annual street festival in Haiti, when followers of the Afro-Creole religion called Vodou march loudly into public space to take an active role in politics. Working deftly with highly original ethnographic material, Elizabeth McAlister shows how Rara bands harness the power of Vodou spirits and the recently dead to broadcast coded points of view with historical, gendered, and transnational dimensions.
