    Abstract:

    Modernism’s materialistic view of the human person denies beauty and the transcendental in man and in the family. To awaken wonder and respect for the transcendence of the human person, great beauty in architecture should be made through an imitation of nature in the Classical tradition to reflect the beauty of the family. A shrine to Our Lady of Fair Love is therefore proposed to be an object of beauty where pilgrims can come to experience the beauty of human life and love in a tactile way.

    Abstract:

    Exploring the intense and common critique of secrecy articulated by the Federalists’ opponents both before and after ratification, this article sheds new light on the way in which the Constitution left open the question of what it meant to represent the people in government. The article traces how concerns about secrecy were amplified in the early republic, becoming a primary discourse in which Federalist policies were contested and serving as glue that bound former Antifederalists with D…

    Abstract:

    The Gacaca courts have been the subject of much academic work. Yet, few studies have examined the elected individuals who presided over Gacaca court trials, reflecting a broader paucity of research on local practitioners of transitional justice. Accordingly, this study asks two questions: (1) How did the Gacaca court judges, known as Inyangamugayo, perceive their duties to fight impunity and facilitate reconciliation? And (2) What challenges did the Inyangamugayo face as they sought…

    Abstract:

    This article provides an ethnographic account of baptism as it is practiced and understood by Christians living in a multi-denominational Upper Egyptian town. Given the challenges of defining baptism in ecumenical terms, this study approaches the topic in terms of three organizing frameworks: baptism as discourse, as rite, and as reproduction. These overlapping metaphors have the advantage of revealing what has often been overlooked in both Coptic studies and the anthropology of Christianity;…

    Abstract:

    Purpose

    Academic BIPOC librarians oftentimes struggle to envision themselves and navigate in White-dominant spaces due to deficit thinking. To better understand how diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) efforts can bolster structural change in academic libraries, the two BIPOC authors opted to lean on an asset-based exercise–imagining a positive work environment made possible through a library staffed entirely by BIPOC individuals.

    Abstract:

    From Introduction: “In early-to-mid 19th century America, slave plantation labor was prevalent in the South, while wage labor centered around cities and factories was becoming more common in the North. Robert William Fogel, in his chapter “American Slavery: A flexible, highly developed form of capitalism,” refutes the common conception that the antebellum South had outdated economic and social systems, and instead argues that American slavery was a highly modernized system of capitalism …

    Abstract:

    From Introduction: “American author Robert Coover’s “The Babysitter” has fallen victim to the assumption of a fantasy piece since the 1969 publication of his short story collection Pricksongs & Descants. The short story bounces between narratives displaying intense metapsychosis and simultaneously tells the jumbled yet distinct tale of a connected array of people. The complex plotlines varyingly cross, stay completely unconnected, and at times contradict each other, walking the fine …

    Abstract:

    Background: Over half the world’s population is at risk for viruses transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, such as, dengue and Zika. The primary vector, Aedes aegypti, thrives in urban environments. Despite decades of effort, cases and the geographic range of Aedes-borne viruses (ABV) continue to expand. Rigorously proven vector control interventions that measure protective efficacy against ABV diseases is limited to Wolbachia in a single trial in Indonesia, and do not include any chemical inte…

    Abstract:

    Humans are exposed to a diverse mixture of chemical and non-chemical exposures across their lifetimes. Well-designed epidemiology studies as well as sophisticated exposure science and related technologies enable the investigation of the health impacts of mixtures. While existing statistical methods can address the most basic questions related to the association between environmental mixtures and health endpoints, there were gaps in our ability to learn from mixtures data in several common epi…

    Abstract:

    Background: Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden, unexplained death of infants <1 year old. SIDS remains a leading cause of death in US infants. We aim to identify associations between SIDS and race/ethnicity, birth weight/gestational age, and socioeconomic/environmental factors in North Carolina (NC) to help identify infants at risk for SIDS.

    Methods and Results: In this IRB-approved study, infant mortality 2007–2016 and death certificate-linked natality 2007–2014 were obtai…

    Abstract:

    From climate change to toxic pollution and the interactive effects of multiple pollution streams, human health is under siege. Human-produced environmental risks to health and wellbeing are massive and contributing to patterns of global morbidity, mortality, economic inequality, displacement, and insecurity. The implications of human-produced environmental harms to global health are complex just as are their causes. The concept of environmental violence (EV) offers a potentially robust frame …

    Abstract:

    The mathematician Marston Morse (1892–1977) argued in several papers and popular lectures that mathematics is ‘‘the sister as well as the servant of the arts’’ ([18], p. 55). Although he formally presented this position in a talk presented in 1950 at a conference at Kenyon College in honor of Robert Frost, his view evolved over the course of his mathematical life. In this article, we trace the development of his theory, present his arguments, show how the arguments are a reflection of his mat…
