Art Of The Cadaver: Spiritual And Secular In The East And West, Wanyan Ma May 2020

Art Of The Cadaver: Spiritual And Secular In The East And West, Wanyan Ma

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

How does the image of the decrepit dead body manifest itself in art? Enlightenment thought had problematically conceived of Europe as at the forefront of knowledge while the rest of the world lagged behind. Christ's body is the original cadaver in Western images, but around the seventeenth century the trend of more secular understandings and depictions of the dead body arose. European anatomical knowledge was also making its way to East Asia around the same time. Non-Europeans were presumed to either lack the investigative spirit or more sinisterly, lack the skill. However, Japanese Buddhist art of the kusozu, or ...

Mind Over Matter: The Obstacles And Importance Of Providing Psychological Care To Collegiate Athletes, Elizabeth Wayne May 2020

Mind Over Matter: The Obstacles And Importance Of Providing Psychological Care To Collegiate Athletes, Elizabeth Wayne

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

In the collegiate athletic world, there has been an increasing emphasis on the mental health of student-athletes, but what is being done to enhance the mental well being of this newfound vulnerable population? We are seeking to understand the student-athlete perception of counseling services compared to the psycho-social help they receive in the athletic training room and from the support staff there. Many athletes go to the training room to help with their physical and mental ailments. This research will address the need for the athletic department at Duquesne to consider hiring a full-time sports psychologist or clinical psychologist.

In And Outside City Walls: Medieval Jewish Communities And Rulership In German Cities, Zoë Schwartz May 2020

In And Outside City Walls: Medieval Jewish Communities And Rulership In German Cities, Zoë Schwartz

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

As one would expect, Jewish life within the German Kingdom in the high middle ages (1000-1300 CE) was fraught with instability. The micro-history of specific Jewish communities has been undertaken by historians in the past, but the Jewish experience within multiple cities has yet to be compared. Due to the diversity of German city authority structures, the restrictions and privileges put upon the community were diverse. How these laws effect the daily life of the Jewish community was subject to the gentile authority of bishops, for those inhabiting bishop-cities, or the Emperor directly, for those living in free imperial states ...

Weary Women: Victorian Women And The Navigation Of Space-Less-Ness, Emily Alexander May 2020

Weary Women: Victorian Women And The Navigation Of Space-Less-Ness, Emily Alexander

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Literary critics often emphasize the importance of physical space and privacy in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, Mary Elizabeth Braddon's Lady Audley's Secret, and George Eliot's Middlemarch. Critic Liana F. Piehler argues private physical spaces serve as a sanctuary from the patriarchal structures of the novel, providing the female protagonist room to think clearly. New historical literary critics including Karen Chase, Michael Levenson, and Elizabeth Langland show how evolving dynamics within Victorian society led to a growing public interest in the secrets of the private sphere--the sphere where women reigned--penetrating even the most intimate spaces. Tracing a ...

Compounded Effects Of The Model Minority Stereotype And Lack Of Social Capital Among Vietnamese American Students, Brooke Olivia Quach May 2020

Compounded Effects Of The Model Minority Stereotype And Lack Of Social Capital Among Vietnamese American Students, Brooke Olivia Quach

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This study hopes to document how structures within the public education system affects the educational attainment of first-generation Vietnamese American students. Educational attainment significantly depends on student's social networks and resources, as these dynamics can affect whether they feel like they can attain a higher degree after high school. In other words, social capital and socioeconomic status can have a significant impact an individual's aspirations. In this study, I examine and investigate the educational attainment of Vietnamese American students and the obstacles they face in applying to and attending college. This attainment process includes the different variables that ...


Mass Media's Ideology Of Middle Eastern Terror And The Impossibility Of The Individual, Mohammed Khalid May 2020

Mass Media's Ideology Of Middle Eastern Terror And The Impossibility Of The Individual, Mohammed Khalid

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The so-called "war on terror" launched in the aftermath of 9/11 created a seismic shift in public discourse about a terrorism threat. Shaping this discourse was a galvanized U.S. media with a dominating ideology about the Middle Eastern terrorist, the ISIS member, the Jihadist, etc. As Arabs and Muslims became increasingly visible to the U.S. public, panic-riddled reactions to this "Middle Eastern terrorist" immediately mutated to drumbeats of war to punish "others" for acts of terrorism, a group of others. This project examines how U.S. media is an important influencer in shaping public opinion throughout the ...


The Political Animal: Aristotle's Man And The Natural Political Life, Joseph Rodriguez May 2020

The Political Animal: Aristotle's Man And The Natural Political Life, Joseph Rodriguez

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Aristotle's Politics offers what may be called a "political anthropology". I argue that Aristotle's conception of the polis as natural derives from the specifically human kind of partnership that is tied to the exercise of the specifically human capacity for logos. I assert that Aristotle's political naturalism is rooted in two claims: (a) the claim that humans are the most political animal and (b) the claim that the polis is naturally prior to the individual. Together these two claims constitute Aristotle's argument that the polis alone has the potential to fully satisfy our unique human capacity ...


Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind: Is Trauma Too Important To Be Erased, Eleanor Mcnamee May 2020

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind: Is Trauma Too Important To Be Erased, Eleanor Mcnamee

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Trauma is largely responsible for shaping personalities and self-concepts. Tragedies in life can cause shifts in behavior or can negatively affect mental health in the way of disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, or depression. Furthermore, the effect of traumatic events on identity depends on a plethora of factors including spirituality, values, gender, the details of the event (e.g. a natural disaster vs. sexual assault), and whether justice was reached. In this regard, whether a traumatic event will help or hinder identity development is nebulous. Any helpful changes due to trauma can also come at any point after the event ...


Linguistic Disobedience: The Intactness Of The Minoritized Subject In Contemporary American Poetry, Jeannie Soairse May 2020

Linguistic Disobedience: The Intactness Of The Minoritized Subject In Contemporary American Poetry, Jeannie Soairse

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Oxford English Dictionary Intact, adj. Definition: Untouched; not affected by anything that injures, diminishes, or sullies; kept or left entire; unblemished; unimpaired. Etymology: Latin intactus,

To be intact: "to be unbroken" is to be untouched. Theodore Adorno defines lyrical language as an expression of an individual's personal subjectivity into universality through specific concepts and signs. However, to render a minoritized subject into a language designed to oppress them is to make that subjectivity lose its intactness. By bringing in Paul Ricoeur's conception of the metaphor as a discursive linguistic act which has to work on the level of ...
