Edward Dutton From Sudan to Suomi

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Ethnology / Cultural Anthropology, , language: English, abstract: ABSTRACTSudan and Suomi ('Finland' in Finnish) are very different nations. Various assessments have rated Finland the best country in the world in which to live while Sudan struggles, mired in poverty and intermittent civil war. Finland is the world's most northerly nation state while Sudan lies close to equator. But, despite the many differences, Finland began to accept Southern Sudanese - mostly Christian - refugees in 2001 and they have since established a nationwide Anglican community and various other churches. There is a significantly sized Southern Sudanese community in Oulu, in the north of the country. From Sudan to Suomi is an ethnographic account of the Southern Sudanese Christian churches in Oulu and the first detailed ethnographic account of any Southern Sudanese community in Finland. Through participant observation, it attempts to gain a deeper understanding of Southern Sudanese religiosity and culture and the way in which Southern Sudanese life has developed in its specifically Finnish cultural context. In doing so, From Sudan to Suomi also aims to help those who work with Sudanese refugees better understand the dynamics and nuances of Southern Sudanese Diaspora culture.

The State of Southern Illinois: An Illustrated History

In The State of Southern Illinois: An Illustrated History, Herbert K. Russell offers fresh interpretations of a number of important aspects of Southern Illinois history. Focusing on the area known as "Egypt", the region south of U.S. Route 50 from Salem south to Cairo, he begins his book with the earliest geologic formations and follows Southern Illinois's history into the twenty-first century. The volume is richly illustrated with maps and photographs, mostly in color, that highlight the informative and straightforward text. Perhaps most notable is the author's use of dozens of heretofore neglected sources to dispel the myth that Southern Illinois is merely an extension of Dixie. He corrects the popular impressions that slavery was introduced by early settlers from the South and that a majority of Southern Illinoisans wished to secede. Furthermore, he presents the first in-depth discussion of twelve pre-Civil War, free black communities located in the region. He also identifies the roles coal mining, labor violence, gangsters, and the media played in establishing the area's image. He concludes optimistically, unveiling a twenty-first-century Southern Illinois filled with myriad attractions and opportunities for citizens and tourists alike. The State of Southern Illinois is the most accurate all-encompassing volume of history on this unique area that often regards itself as a state within a state. It offers an entirely new perspective on race relations, provides insightful in...

The television series SPACE: 1999 was in its first series shaped by the late sixties and early seventies counterculture movements, making SPACE: 1999 into an example of how certain SF scholars see a natural alignment between science fiction and critical theory. However, due to changes in the political climate, SPACE: 1999 went through an ideological reversal in its second series. As a result, the schizophrenic nature of the series has ever since caused debate.This book is written on an idealistic basis. It is sold at the lowest price the publisher was willing to accept.

David Goldfield Still Fighting the Civil War. The American South and Southern History (Updated)

In the updated edition of his sweeping narrative on southern history, David Goldfield brings this extensive study into the present with a timely assessment of the unresolved issues surrounding the Civil War s sesquicentennial commemoration. Traversing a hundred and fifty years of memory, Goldfield confronts the remnants of the American Civil War that survive in the hearts of many of the South s residents and in the national news headlines of battle flags, racial injustice, and religious conflicts. Goldfield candidly discusses how and why white southern men fashioned the myths of the Lost Cause and Redemption out of the Civil War and Reconstruction, and how they shaped a religion to canonize the heroes and deify the events of those fateful years. He also recounts how groups of blacks and white women eventually crafted a different, more inclusive version of southern history and how that new vision competed with more traditional perspectives. The battle for southern history, and for the South, continues in museums, public spaces, books, state legislatures, and the minds of southerners. Given the region s growing economic power and political influence, understanding this war takes on national significance. Through an analysis of ideas of history and memory, religion, race, and gender, Still Fighting the Civil War provides us with a better understanding of the South and one another.

As she reflects on her own experiences as a seventh grade student up to her eventual appointment as a school administrator, she learns of the complexity of situating oneself in predetermined demographic categories. She shares how she explores the intricacies of undefined spaces that teach her to embrace differences, contradictions, and complexities in schools, neighborhoods and communities.Exploring the in-betweenness (Anzaldua & Keating, 2002; He, 2003, 2010) of her life as a multi-race person problematizes imbedded notions of race, gender, class, and power.

Aurelio M. Espinosa The Folklore of Spain in the American Southwest. Traditional Spanish Folk Literature in Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado

The region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado holds a unique place in the world of Spanish folk literature. Isolated from the rest of the Spanish-speaking world for most of its history since its first settlement in 1598, it has retained, even into our own time, much of its Hispanic folkloric heritage from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries-ballads, songs, poems, folktales, sayings, anecdotes, proverbs, riddles, and folk drama.In this book, written in the late 1930s and never before published, Aurelio M. Espinosa, New Mexico's pioneer folklorist, presents the first comprehensive, authoritative account of the relict folklore, bringing together the results of his collecting during the first third of this century, in the Southwest and in Spain, and his many ground-breaking scholarly studies.

Richard Davenport-Hines An English Affair: Sex, Class and Power in the Age of Profumo

A dazzling reconstruction of the Profumo Affair which brings to life Sixties England and uncovers the shocking truth behind the scandal.Britain in the early 1960s was dominated by the legacy of two world wars. Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, the Edwardian stalwart, led a Conservative government dedicated to tradition, hierarchy and, above all, old-fashioned morality. But the tide was changing. A breakdown of social boundaries saw nightclub hostesses mixing with aristocrats, and middle-class professionals dabbling in criminality. Meanwhile, Cold War paranoia gripped the public imagination.The Profumo Affair was a perfect storm, and when it broke it rocked the Establishment. In ‘An English Affair’, Richard Davenport-Hines, author of the critically acclaimed ‘Titainic Lives’, introduces us to the key players and brings seedily glamorous Swinging London to life. The cast list includes familiar names such as louche society doctor Stephen Ward, good-time girls Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, and Secretary for War John Profumo himself. But here for the first time we also encounter the full complement of tabloid hacks, property developers and hangers-on whose roles have, until now, never been fully revealed. As the drama builds to its deadly climax, Davenport-Hines exposes the hypocrisy and prejudice of a country undergoing extraordinary change.Sex, drugs, class, race, chequebook journalism and the criminal underworld – the Profumo Affair had it all. This is the story of how Sixties England cast off respectability and fell in love with scandal.

It's a unique window into the entire genre, through the words invented and passed along by science fictions most talented writers, critics, and fans. Each entry includes numerous citations of the words usage, from the earliest known appearance forward. Drawn not only from science fiction novels and short stories, citations are also taken from mainstream publications, fanzines, screenplays, newspapers, comics, songs, and the Internet. This historical look at the language of science fiction shows how many of the words we consider everyday vocabulary, including spacesuit (1929), blast off (1937), and robot (1920), have roots in imaginative literature rather than hard science. In fact, science fiction has created a wealth of language later adopted by the sciences and popular culture. Also, it is often surprising how old some of these terms are. Death Ray, for instance, dates to 1915, and Science Fiction itself has been in use since 1851.

Lochlainn Seabrook Victorian Confederate Poetry. The Southern Cause in Verse, 1861-1901

When the winners of the American Civil War, Liberal Yankees, discarded the facts and completely rewrote its narrative in order to conceal the constitutionality of secession, one of the most crucial features of the Confederacy was lost to history: the record of the national spirit of the Southern people shortly before, during, and after the conflict. This sentiment, which described the emotional impetus behind Dixie’s war efforts, was vigorously chronicled by Southern poets, who penned a massive corpus of poignant Confederate verse that, tragically, seemed to vanish after the turn of the Twentieth Century. We have been much poorer for its disappearance. In his one-of-a-kind 600 page work Victorian Confederate Poetry: The Southern Cause in Verse, 1861-1901, award-winning Southern historian and internationally acclaimed Civil War scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook brings these suppressed and forgotten Southern compositions back to life. The nearly 400 poems he has carefully selected embody a wide spectrum of writing, thought, and emotion, covering the universal themes of war, patriotism, courage, honor, duty, heritage, family, faith, loss, and death. Among his poets are numerous Confederate soldiers and officers, hundreds of Southern civilians, several South-loving foreigners, and even a handful of respectful Yankees. Both men and women, children and seniors, are represented. For aficionados of Victorian, Southern, and Confederate verse, Colonel Seabrook has included the South’s...

John W. Campbell Islands of Space by John W. Campbell, Science Fiction, Adventure
