  • The Chreia in the Forrest

    • Abstract: Interpretation of poetry becomes manageable when we find in the poets' background elements of early training which are revealed in their work. In the schools of the British Renaissance Aphothonius’ Progymnasmata was the preferred manual of classical rhetoric used to teach students how to write. The composition exercises in this manual of rhetoric were applied to the art of letter writing, since this was the most common means for communication at the time.Among the various writing exercises from the Progymnasmata used in the grammar schools of the English Renaissance, the chreia predominates. We can see that the main thematic headings and subdivisions used in the epistolary lyric fit this particular format. John Donne introduced this innovation to English poetry. Ben Jonson perfected the technique, as we see in his book of poems, The Forrest. Several of his best known poems fit the chreia pattern. We close our study with a suggestion that To Heaven, one of the best known poems of the English Renaissance, can be interpreted as a letter addressed directly to God.

  • Religious Reasons and Public Reason: Recalibrating Ireland’s
           Benevolent Secularism

    • Abstract: Liberal regimes in the West are not homogeneous in their application of secular principles. What kind of “secular” state a particular government promotes depends in large part on the strength and influence of the majority religion in that region. This article acknowledges the heuristic value of a recent threefold taxonomy of secularism: passive, assertive, and benevolent forms of secularism. I take issue with and challenge certain institutional privileges granted to the majority religion in one benevolently secular regime, the Republic of Ireland. I consider how benevolent secularism, while remaining benevolent toward religion, can align its application of secularism in the arena of publicly-funded education (primary and secondary education). A politically liberal regime, defined by the idea of public reason, invokes the principle of publicity, namely, that discourse and public policy be intelligible (and acceptable to a large degree) not only to an individual’s religious or moral community but also to the broader collection of members who constitute a liberal state. Drawing on John Rawls’ conception of public reason, and using Ireland as a case study, I show how this particular state-religion interrelation can be recalibrated in order to increase the prospects of reconciliation with a secular space of public reason.

  • Challenges and Drawbacks in the Marketisation of Higher Education Within

    • Abstract: This paper addresses some of the challenges and drawbacks associated to the ongoing worldwide process of marketization (neoliberalization) in higher education. Neoliberalism—the prevailing model of capitalist thinking based on the Washington Consensus—has conveyed the idea that a new educational and university model must emerge in order to meet the demands of a global productive system that is radically different from that of just a few decades ago. The overall argument put forward is that the requirements, particularly the managerial and labor force needs of a new economy—already developing within the parameters of globalization and the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs)—cannot be adequately satisfied under the approaches and methods used by a traditional university. Neoliberalism affects the telos of higher education by redefining the very meaning of higher education. It dislocates education by commodifying its intrinsic value and emphasizing directly transferable skills and competencies. Nonmonetary values are marginalized and, with them, the nonmonetary ethos that is essential in sustaining a healthy democratic society. In this paper I will address (1) some of the problems and shortcomings in the triple-helix model of university-industry-government collaborations, (2) the transformation of students into customers and faculty into entrepreneurial workers, highlighting the many drawbacks of such strategies, (3) the hegemony of rankings as procedures of surveillance and control, (4) the many criticisms posed against neoliberalization in higher education and the possible alternatives looking to the future.

  • The Urban Food-Truck Phenomenon: History, Regulations and Prospect

    • Abstract: The city streets and spaces have for the duration of the city’s existence provided an area where people may trade and enjoy food. In the twentieth and twenty-first millennium, this activity is changing in form and conception. The food-truck industry is growing throughout the world and in particular in North America. This paper reviews the growth, its origins, its existing situation and prospect. Through a literature review of existing regulations governing the food-truck industry a compilation of these regulations will be made. After a description of the food-truck industry status in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia a comparison of the previously compiled regulations to the regulations that exist in Jeddah will be made. These comparisons have highlighted some issues with the regulations that exist in Jeddah. Main finding is the relatively insufficient regulations in place to govern the industry in the city, which may hinder the growth and prosperity of the industry and all those involved. Thus one of the main aims of the paper is to provide a basis upon which future regulations for the city of Jeddah may be created. Further discussions on the future of the food-truck industry in the city of Jeddah and beyond are put forth in the concluding section.

  • Exploiting Shangri-La: Assessing the Tibetan Plateau’s Natural Resources
           and the Work of Karl Wittfogel

    • Abstract: This paper applies Karl Wittfogel' s theory of hydraulic societies to China’s relationship with Tibet. It argues that the Chinese are interested in control over Tibet not only for its land, location, or wealth of natural resources, but also for control of its headwaters. Hundreds of millions of people rely on the numerous large rivers that start in the Tibetan plateau, making the region a critically important water supply for Asia. Wittfogel’s work theorizes that China’s territory and authority has expanded with the need to secure water for its large population and food production. The paper contains two sections: the first summarizes Wittfogel’s arguments, a history of Tibet, and China’s control of it; the second describes China’s attempts to modernize Tibet, specifically through river development, and the environmental damage caused by such efforts. Tibet’s rivers are crucial for the entirety of Asia, and the Plateau’s massive supplies of water are just one of its many resources. By focusing on rivers, this article describes the importance of Tibet and how increasing levels of resource extraction legitimatize Chinese centralized authority.
