    • Painful Prayer 3: How Can It Be?

      Rev John Pinkston (2017-12-17)
      This message follows Mary as she hears what is going to happen.  It looks at the question she asks, only to realize that that wasn't what she really wanted to know.  Like so many of us, what she wanted to know was, "will it be okay?"  That question was answered for her through her cousin Elizabeth.

    • Painting the Second World War in Great Britain: A Selection of Women’s Views Perspectives de femmes peintres en Grande-Bretagne pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale

      Elizabeth de Cacqueray (Maison de la Recherche en Sciences Humaines, 2012-03-01)
      La guerre figure souvent comme sujet dans l’art mais, le plus souvent sous la forme de représentations de champs de bataille ou de batailles navales. La Deuxième Guerre mondiale en Grande-Bretagne offre des formes de peinture de guerre plus inhabituelles dans la mesure où un programme officiel a été mis en œuvre — le « comité de conseils aux artistes de guerre » — afin de recueillir des témoignages sur la vie en Grande-Bretagne en temps de guerre : il s’en suit de nombreux tableaux dépeignant le front intérieur par opposition au front militaire. Ce programme était également original car il avait fait appel à de nombreuses femmes peintres. Cet article étudie le travail de certaines de ces femmes, aussi bien sur le plan thématique que sur le plan stylistique. Est, plus particulièrement, examinée la pertinence de parler d’un style plus spécifique aux femmes. De même, on peut s’interroger sur les raisons pour lesquelles, suite à la guerre, de nombreux peintres hommes issus de ce projet ont bénéficié d’une notoriété nationale et internationale alors que les femmes ont mené des carrières plus discrètes. Ainsi peut-on constater que l���idée largement répandue sur l’évolution stéréotypée des rôles masculins et féminins s’étend au-delà du monde artistique et se creuse d’autant après guerre.

    • Panorama actual de las corrientes ecológicas [Current landscape ecological flows]

      Cáceres, Alirio (Servicios Koinonia, 2010)
      "Hoy en día abundan expresiones como ecosistema, ecotecnología, ecoturismo, ecodiseño, ecologismo, ecofeminismo... crisis ecológica, conciencia ecológica, huella ecológica, política ecológica, factor ecológico... ¿A qué nos referimos? El prefijo «eco» viene de la raíz griega oikos, que significa casa, hogar. Algunos lingüistas precisan que oikos no es sólo la estructura física de la vivienda, sino las relaciones que se dan al interior de la casa y constituyen la identidad de una familia. «Logos» por su parte, se refiere al estudio, tratado o argumentación sobre algo."
    • Panorama atual das correntes ecológicas [Current overview of current ecologica]

      Cáceres, Alírio (Servicios Koinonia, 2010)
      "Há hoje um excesso de expressões como ecossistema, ecotecnologia, ecoturismo, ecodesenho, ecologismo, ecofeminismo... crise ecológica, consciência ecológica, vestígio ecológico, política ecológica, fator ecológico... A que nos referimos? O prefixo «eco» vem da raiz grega oíkos, que significa casa, lar. Alguns linguistas indicam que oíkos não é somente a estrutura física da moradia, mas as relações que se dão no interior da casa e constituem a identidade de uma família. Logos, por seu lado, se refere ao estudo, tratado ou argumentação sobre alguma coisa."

    • Para una teología del ecosistema [For a theology of the ecosystem]

      Matoses, Juan (Ediciones Encuentro, 1985)
      "En las últimas décadas han surgido distintas e interesantes teologías como resultado de pretender sintonizar con los problemas del mundo. Algunas de ellas han perdido ya su actualidad, otras, como la Teología de la Liberación, siguen vigentes. Que haya pobres e injusticias será siempre un escándalo lacerante que martilleará las conciencias de los creyentes. La reflexión teológica sobre esta materia será siempre acuciante y evangélica. En la actualidad, dos nuevos problemas sensibilizan al hombre: la guerra y la destrucción de los ecosistemas. En un mundo que de modo alarmante se armamentiza y progresa en ingenios mortíferos de dimensiones cósmicas surgen intentos por elaborar una Teología de la Paz. Pero no sé que exista todavía una Teología de la Ecología."

    • Paradox, Place, and Pastoralism in the Works of Theocritus, Virgil, and Thoreau

      Joy Greenberg; Pacifica Graduate Institute (Equinox Publishing Ltd., 2009-03-17)
      That humans have forever longed for return to paradise is axiomatic of pastoralism. While the Greek poet Theocritus is arguably the first to present Arcadia as a paradisal, pastoral place in his Idylls, by going beyond merely addressing the essential contradictions of life and attempting to resolve them in his Eclogues, Virgil advances the pastoral mode. Both works are imbued with a paradoxical sense of longing for the unattainable that has influenced much Western literature and art in the past two thousand years. Indeed, just as Virgil re-visions Theocritus, Henry David Thoreau emulates and then extends Virgil’s pastoral form in Walden. Pastoralism is seen, therefore, as an ever-adaptive perspective that continues to inform today’s artists, poets, and philosophers. By analyzing the mythopoetic aspects of pastoralism, Idylls, Eclogues, and Walden may be understood as mythologies of place that embody soul.
    • Paris and the Commune 1871-78: the politics of forgetting

      Wilson, Colette E. (Manchester University Press and Palgrave in the USA, 2007-11)
      This book makes a strong contribution to our understanding of French cultural memory. Despite the scholarship and political activism devoted to keeping the memory of the Paris Commune alive, there still remains much ignorance both in France and elsewhere, about the traumatic civil war of 1871 and particularly about the terrible retribution meted out by the French State on its own citizens; some 20,000 to 35,000 people were killed on the streets of Paris in just the final week of the conflict.Colette Wilson identifies a critical blind-spot in French studies which since the 1960s has focused primarily on representations of the Commune by writers and artists who were either Communards themselves or at least sympathetic to the Communard cause. New critical approaches are instead set to work on neglected texts (by Maxime Du Camp), marginalized aspects of the illustrated press (Le Monde illustré), early photography (Charles Marville, Edouard Baldus, and Charles Soulier) and a selection of novels by Emile Zola. Wilson writes clearly and authoritatively and her book will be of interest to second/third and final year undergraduates, postgraduate students and academics working on France in the nineteenth century from a number of different perspectives – war and revolution studies, cultural studies, history and cultural memory, literature, art history, photography, the illustrated press, city studies and human geography. The book will appeal equally to all lovers of Paris who wish to know and understand more about this city’s turbulent past.
