  • Reacting to the Past: The French Revolution from the Eyes of History
           Students

    • Authors: Khristina May et al.
      Abstract: From the Editorial Introduction:
      Dr. Allison Belzer, Assistant Professor of History, began to utilize the “Rousseau, Burke, and Revolution in France, 1791” text in her Civilization classes and Modern France course. The students accepted the challenge and put forward remarkable work, far more insightful than seen in traditional lecture formats. The students were all assigned roles within the factions Jacobin, Noble, Clergy, Moderates, the crowd, and individual characters like King Louis XVI, Marquis de Lafayette, lawyer, doctor, journalist, and rural delegate. Every group was given delegates and power just as they were historically distributed. The students got a chance to make their mark on the historical debates such as the constitution, slavery, and equal rights. The roles were dynamic and ever changing as back room deals were encouraged. Also crowd riots could shift the number of delegates and therefore the balance of power with moment’s notice. The student experience was unique amongst classroom atmospheres, with feelings of pressure, competition, and excitement all playing a role in their assigned work. Basically, no one wanted to lose their head or be killed in a crowd riot, and their best defense were the writings they published in weekly newspapers hoping to gain approval of the factions and crowd. Every week each group produced newspapers comprised of their individual essays. The newspapers stated the stance and political leanings of the factions and covered details of the fighting and protests. The following pieces are written in first person as though they were published by historical characters in 18th-century France at the height of the debate over the role of the clergy, monarchy, and what equal rights for all really meant to the men and women of France.

    • Authors: Scott Benigno
      Abstract: While Brazil is not often thought to be connected to Britain in our present day, Brazil’s early independent history was inextricably linked with the European imperial power. Using A Report on the Proposed Railway in the Province of Pernambuco, Brazil written by British civil engineer Edward De Mornay in 1855 as an example, this paper looks specifically at Britain’s interests in developing railways in the mostly non-industrialized Brazil and the reasons behind.

  • From Madame Butterfly to M. Butterfly: Changing Narratives of Oriental
           Womanhood

    • Authors: Nam Do
      Abstract: Throughout its performance history, Madame Butterfly (1904) by Giacomo Puccini hasattracted significant intrigue and controversies. Through its protagonist Cio-Cio San, the operadepicts Asian femininity as weak-willed, servile and ultimately powerless in the face of Westernforces. This paper will examine the trajectory of this narrative of Orientalism through MadameButterfly and its two modern adaptations, Miss Saigon (1989) and M. Butterfly (1993). Through an analysis of both informal and formal sources, this study will show how the Orientalist womanhood is first accepted and embraced by the native audiences of Madame Butterfly, is rejected by the audiences of Miss Saigon and finally subverted in M. Butterfly. The transformations in critical receptions of the three works alongside changing historical and political contexts reflect a gradual evolution in society’s views of East-West power relations, national identity, and the constructs of femininity and gender.

  • "I Know It When I See It": The Supreme Court and the Changing
           Definition of Obscenity

    • Authors: Madelaine Setiawan
      Abstract: This research paper analyzes the Supreme Court’s history in defining obscenity by exploring how and why the Supreme Court’s definition of obscenity changed over time through many of the Court rulings and landmark decisions. This paper will look into these cases chronologically from Rosen v. United States (1896) to Miller v. California (1973). This research demonstrates that the key to the changes in defining obscenity lies in the evolution of societal values, where the Court merely adapts to what society demands.

  • Mom-In-Chief: The Financial and Emotional Demands of Motherhood on
           Housewives of Servicemen during World War II

    • Authors: Abigail Caldwell
      Abstract: This essay analyzes letters by white, American stay-at-home mothers with husbands in the service during World War II. It uses articles published during the war to compare the expectations for moms to their lived experiences and explores how motherhood shaped their wartime lives. Many scholars have studied women during WWII, but most focus on those who entered the work force. This essay takes a closer look at the women who stayed home with their children and what that looked like compared to the media’s portrayals. The mothers’ letters capture the financial and emotional hardships caused by war, separation, motherhood, and the standards placed on them. What’s more, though, was their endurance and resilience which has carried on to motherhood today.

  • The Buraimi Crisis: The Anglo-American Rivalry in the Arabian Peninsula,
           1949-1955

    • Authors: Omar S. Abdellatif et al.
      Abstract: Through the case study of the Buraimi War, this essay aims to dissect the impact of British and American influence on political systems in the Arabian Peninsula, particularly as a result of their post-Second World War rivalry in the region. It is argued that as a result of Great power rivalry and the clash between traditional political concepts and that brought on by Western powers, that the adoption of political institutions of European conception would accelerate. Thus, the modern state system in Arabia was born marked by territorially defined boundaries and increased authoritarianism.

  • A Question of Law: The Chinese Legal Discourse under the Guomindang in the
           1920s and 1930s

    • Authors: Nils Peterson
      Abstract: The 1920s and 1930s saw discussions of Chinese legal discourse shift from being premised on the rule of law to an increasing acceptance of authoritarian government. Prominent intellectuals like Hu Shih demonstrated this shift via their writings in the respective time periods. While the years preceding the late 1920s did not witness widespread rule of law in China, the Guomindang’s rise to power put the nail in the coffin for any sort of democratic government, subordinate to the law, ruling China.

  • When I Paint My Masterpiece: Giotto’s Last Judgement and its Twelfth
           Century Cultural Foundations

    • Authors: Zachary Graham
      Abstract: Covering the back wall of the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Italy, Giotto di Bondone’s Last Judgement (1306) serves as a comprehensive benchmark for the transition between medieval and renaissance art. Quickly becoming one of his most definitive works, the fresco exhibits techniques taken from some of the earliest medieval and late Byzantine works of religious art while still proving to be a brilliant display of the artist’s unique style. This research paper first explores Giotto’s artistic influences, focusing on three specific iterations of the Last Judgement in France and asserting that they all had a direct impact on Giotto’s later work in the Scrovegni Chapel. After drawing connections between these medieval Last Judgements and the Scrovegni Chapel fresco, this paper also asserts that Giotto’s Last Judgement presents one of the first instances of true individuality in European art. Drawing from other contemporary works of art and literature in the early renaissance, Giotto’s unrivaled artistic signature proves to be just as pronounced as his affinity for his medieval predecessors.

  • Prussian Militarism and the German Wars of Unification

    • Authors: Hamza Elshakankiri
      Abstract: This paper explains how Prussian militarism gained a sense of supremacy and invisibility through the German Wars of Unification. Beginning with Prussia’s rule in defeating Napoleon from 1813, Prussia became in the center of German nationalism. After defeating Napoleon, Prussian militarism went into hibernation, as the monarchs abandoned the idea of nationalism and tried to put Europe back together. The prospect of German Unification became possible under Bismarck. The final step of German Unification was the war against France, as Prussia was portrayed as Germany's savior against French aggression.

  • Poisoned Bread: The Esing Bakery incident of 1857 and racism in colonial
           Hong Kong

    • Authors: Jason Lee
      Abstract: The Esing Bakery incident of 1857 remains one of the largest man-made food-poisoning events in known history. Set during the early Second Opium War, the trial and treatment of the bakery owner, Cheong Alum, serves as an intriguing event through which the racial tensions between Europeans and Chinese inhabitants of colonial Hong Kong can be examined. Adopting a microhistorical lens, this paper investigates existing racial tensions in the colony, past poisoning incidents, and the peculiarities of the Hong Kong legal system to reveal a colonial Hong Kong that was thoroughly steeped in racial, and arguably racist, rhetoric.

  • Atenism and Pharaoh Akhenaten’s Attempt to Deify Himself

    • Authors: Sabrina Wade
      Abstract: 18th Dynasty (1550-1295 BCE) pharaoh Amenhotep IV (d. 1336 BCE), later known as Akhenaten, founded what was arguably Egypt’s first monotheistic religion, which was based around the solar god Aten. This essay posits that Akhenaten founded this new religion as an attempt to deify himself. Evidence from both The Great Hymn to the Aten and Amarna Period artwork point to an attempt by Akhenaten to establish himself, not just as another pharaoh god-king, but as the sole, eternal living god. He was not simply the son of Aten, but the incarnation of Aten himself.
