A Consideration of “Aboriginality”
[ send me this report ]
A 5 page paper in which the author approaches the term “aboriginality” with the contention that the term has been defined not only by the Aboriginal peoples themselves but by those cultures who invaded Australian shores and ultimately came to dominate the land and the people. The problem which is inherent in an English definition of “aboriginality” is that such definitions typically fail to take into account the fact that aboriginal culture, like all cultures, is an ever-evolving phenomena. An equally important problem results in that the definition of the term “aboriginality” tends to continually evolve in accordance with the degree of economic and political pressure the aborigine peoples represent to the dominant culture. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A Discussion of Death: Cultural Variation and the Obligations of the Living
[ send me this report ]
A 4 page contention that death is a process, a process in which the dying terminate their societal obligations but in which family members often incur obligations in the form of family vigilance. These obligations have varied, however, over time and culture. In many aspects of our modern society death has become more of a clinical topic than a personal and spiritual one. To more traditional societies, however, the process of death is one in which family members not only are expected to but want to provide the structure which they feel best allows their loved one to transition from the physical world to the living world.

A Proposal for Additional Archaeological Excavation in Jerusalem
[ send me this report ]
A 5 page contention that the modern era of the nineteenth and twentieth century have by many accounts waged more damage on Jerusalem than the city has incurred at any point in her pre-modern history. Much of this damage relates to the perception of the religious importance of the city. It is an insult which is deserved of a deliberate archaeological effort to clarify that indeed Jerusalem was, and is, one of the most important religious shrines on earth. This paper proposes additional excavation in Jerusalem which is designed to demonstrate that the Bible, despite growing perceptions to the contrary, is an accurate historical record and not just the myth of which some would prefer it be comprised. A brief budget is proposed based on a fictional $1,000,000 grant. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A Study of Gulru Necipoglu’s Article “The Life of an Imperial Monument: Hagia Sophia after Byzantium”: Summary and Critique
[ send me this report ]
This is a 10 page paper discussing Gulru Necipoglu’s article “The Life of an Imperial Monument: Hagia Sophia after Byzantium”. Gulru Necipoglu’s article “The Life of an Imperial Monument: Hagia Sophia after Byzantium” highlights many of the cultural and historical aspects of Hagia Sophia since Mehmed II’s conquest of Constantinople in 1453. Necipoglu comments that her purpose for the article is to fill in many of the details which have been missed in other works relating to the transition Hagia Sophia has undergone within its last 451 years. While Necipoglu does have a great deal of professional knowledge in the field of architecture and especially that within the Islamic world, Necipoglu’s article actually emphasizes the cultural and religious significance and changes within Hagia Sophia and of the architectural changes which accompany these transitions. Her emphasis is on the cultural and religious flexibility of Hagia Sophia and not only how it accommodated the transition from being The Great Church in Christianity to becoming the great Ayasofya mosque in the Muslim world but also she reveals many of the myths which were created in order to support its growing importance in the Islamic world. While it may seem that a great many of the historical and architectural details are absent from Necipoglu’s article which preceded Byzantium, the article appears within a larger text on Hagia Sophia and its placement near the end provides a good contextual finish to the text of a monument which has undergone a great deal of architectural, cultural and religious renovation and change. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

A Summary of Four Articles in the Social Sciences and Cultural Studies by Bakhtari, Curtis, Littlejohn and Lont
[ send me this report ]
This is a 4 page paper summarizing four articles within the social sciences and cultural studies. Articles by Hassan Bakhtari, Sue Ann Curtis, Stephen Littlejohn and Cynthia Lont discuss various concerns within the area of social science and cultural studies. Bakhtari addresses the difference found in management styles between Middle Eastern immigrant managers in the U.S. and U.S.-born managers which are shown to be significant. Curtis addresses concerns in regards to consideration of North American tribes’ relationship and well-being to the land on which they live and how this can be affected by federal projects which involve dangerous and hazardous waste in those same areas. Littlejohn and Lont address slightly different concerns in social science: Littlejohn reveals the trend toward deceptive reporting in the discipline of social science and asks for alternative methods; whereas, Lont describes some of the interchangeable terms used in subcultural studies in which the entire process is best described as “persistence”. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
