The Butter And Egg Man, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2003-2004 Season

The play's title, of course, is Broadwayese of the moment—a generic name for all those gentlemen who come trustingly to Gotham with bankrolls, bent upon either reckless expenditure or equally reckless investment. — From the dust jacket for the first edition of The Butter and Egg Man (Boni & Liveright, 1926)[


Jacobite Past, Loyalist Present, Michael Newton Oct 2003

Jacobite Past, Loyalist Present, Michael Newton

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

This article is the first analysis of Gaelic sources relating to the involvement of Scottish Highlanders in warfare in North America from the opening of the French and Indian War to the end of the American Revolution. A careful reading of these primary sources — almost totally unknown to historians — can provide a unique window on the sentiments and reasoning of Highlanders regarding these conflicts. This analysis of contemporary Gaelic poetry demonstrates that there is a high degree of continuity and consistency in the ideological framework of the lines of political argumentation from the Jacobite era through the end of the ...

Iron Age Chariots And Medieval Texts: A Step Too Far In "Breaking Down Boundaries"?, Raimund Karl Sep 2003

Iron Age Chariots And Medieval Texts: A Step Too Far In "Breaking Down Boundaries"?, Raimund Karl

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

Analysing “Celtic” chariots by using Iron Age archaeological material and Early Medieval Irish texts might seem to be more than just one step too far in breaking down boundaries. Considering the huge chronological and geographical gaps between the sources, the objections raised against the concept of “Celticity” by Celtosceptics, and the antinativist school of thought in Irish literature, such an approach might look like outright nonsense to many archaeologists and scholars in medieval literature alike. Using a “functional” method according to the new Viennese approach to Celtic Studies, to allow cross-disciplinary comparison of archaeological, historical, iconographic, legal, linguistic, literary and ...

“Becoming Cold-Hearted Like The Gentiles Around Them”: Scottish Gaelic In The United States 1872-1912, Michael Newton Jul 2003

“Becoming Cold-Hearted Like The Gentiles Around Them”: Scottish Gaelic In The United States 1872-1912, Michael Newton

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

Historians have occasionally recognized the presence of Scottish Gaelic-speaking immigrants in the United States, but no previous study has attempted to determine the relationship between the Gaelic-American community and their language in detail. This article makes use of evidence available in contemporary periodicals to examine the attitudes of Scottish Gaels resident in the United States towards their native language from 1872 to 1912, and attempts to assess the efforts made to maintain that language. The failure of Gaelic to thrive in the United States is evident in the lack of development of effective strategies to buttress the language. The evidence ...

Breton At A Crossroads: Looking Back, Moving Forward, Lenora A. Timm Jun 2003

Breton At A Crossroads: Looking Back, Moving Forward, Lenora A. Timm

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

This paper examines the changing status of the Breton language over time, with particular emphasis on developments in the past century. Diglossic and oppositional relationships with French are discussed, as well as the shift in symbolic value accorded Breton in recent decades, the opposition between neo- and traditional Breton, and prospects for its persistence in the new century and millennium.


Vanishing Point: An Examination Of Some Consequences Of Globalization For Contemporary Irish Film, Sean Crosson Jun 2003

Vanishing Point: An Examination Of Some Consequences Of Globalization For Contemporary Irish Film, Sean Crosson

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

In the following article, some films produced with the support of Bord Scannán na hÉireann (The Irish Film Board) since its reconstitution in 1993 are examined in light of the work of global anthropologist Arjun Appadurai and his theory of global cultural flows. I suggest that cinema, primarily of Hollywood origin, has had a notable influence on the development of Irish society and Irish film. Contemporary Irish film itself also reflects the failure of Irish history to excite the imagination of Ireland’s youth as effectively as the seductive depictions of America’s past as mediated through the Western and ...
