What started out as rhymes by a child has been turned into music by a woman. When I was a teenager, I did lots of rhymes, then I started writing poems and welcomes to help out for special events and occasions. My son told me that I could make money doing that, so I prayed about that and things started happening. Mary spends most of her day at Bank One as an executive food service worker. She is the mother of seven children, who range in age from 26 to 45, and has 16 grandchildren. One of her loves is basketball which she became attached to as part of the Greenbrier High School Girls Championship team. She still enjoys an occasional game with her children. Mary has been a member of St. Elizabeth Church in Louisville for 31 years. During her membership, she has been an adult Sunday school teacher, president of the usher board, and booking clerk. Although Mary has a way with words, she also has a way with caring. She is always on the lookout for those less fortunate. She helps people with disabilities that keep them from taking care of themselves. When you are doing things for others, you often do things that you wouldnt do for yourself. In 1997, Mary was promoted to commercial loan support specialist. On July 1, 2000, she remarried, and her last name became Short. this is my second spiritual inspirational book to be published.

Divisions of Labor and Cultural Change in Late Imperial and Modern China

"Governing notions of the social order (and interrelated constructions of gender) changed radically in the modern era - initially with the questioning of the imperial, dynastic order and the creation of a Chinese republic in the early twentieth century, later with the creation of a Communist government and, most recently, with China's political and cultural transformations in the post-Mao era. As ideas and practices of gender have changed, the persistence of older rhetorical signs in the interstices of new political visions has complicated the social projects and understandings of modernity, especially in terms of the creation of new public spaces, new concepts of work and virtue, and new configurations of gender."--BOOK JACKET.

Stillness in Motion in the Seventeenth Century Theatre provides a comprehensive examination of this aesthetic theory.

Though often consigned to the footnotes of history, African American women are a significant part of the rich, multiethnic heritage of Texas and the United States. Until now, though, their story has frequently been fragmented and underappreciated. Black Women in Texas History draws together a multi-author narrative of the experiences and impact of black American women from the time of slavery until the recent past. Each chapter, written by an expert on the era, provides a readable survey and overview of the lives and roles of black Texas women during that period. Each provides careful documentation, which, along with the thorough bibliography compiled by the volume editors, will provide a starting point for others wanting to build on this important topic. The authors address significant questions about population demographics, employment patterns, family and social dimensions, legal and political rights, and individual accomplishments. They look not only at how African American women have been shaped by the larger culture but also at how these women have, in turn, affected the culture and history of Texas. This work situates African American women within the context of their times and offers a due appreciation and analysis of their lives and accomplishments. Black Women in Texas History is an important addition to history and sociology curriculums as well as black studies and women’s studies programs. It will provide for interested students, scholars, and general readers a comprehensive survey of the crucial role these women played in shaping the history of the Lone Star State.

Urban agglomerations host the most vital and creative societies. This applies particularly to Africa, where cities have the highest growth rates world-wide and where the urban population is younger than anywhere else. Urban life-worlds are the basis for the development of new lifestyles and new cultural phenomena. Based on empirical ethnographic research, this book presents case studies that enhance our understanding of the dynamics of urbanity in Africa and beyond - by envisioning cities as crossroads where cultures, biographies and networks meet.

Love in Motion

Erotic Relationships in Film

Author: Reidar Due

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231850514

Category: Performing Arts

Page: 192

View: 996

This is a book about how film encountered love in the course of its history. It is also a book about the philosophy of love. Since Plato, erotic love has been praised for leading the soul to knowledge. The vast tradition of poetry devoted to love has emphasized that love is a feeling. Love in Motion presents a new metaphysics and ontology of love as a reciprocal erotic relationship. The book argues that film has been particularly well suited for depicting love in this way, in virtue of its special narrative language. This is a language of expression that has developed in the course of film history. The book spans this history from early silent directors such as Joseph von Sternberg to contemporary filmmakers like Sophia Coppola. At the centre of this study is a comparison between Classical French and American love films of the forties and a series of modernist films by Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut and Wong Kar Wai.

Women in the Arts in the Belle Epoque

Essays on Influential Artists, Writers and Performers

This collection of new essays explores the role played by women practitioners in the arts during the period often referred to as the Belle Epoque, a turn of the century period in which the modern media (audio and film recording, broadcasting, etc.) began to become a reality. Exploring the careers and creative lives of both the famous (Sarah Bernhardt) and the less so (Pauline Townsend) across a remarkable range of artistic activity from composition through oratory to fine art and film directing, these essays attempt to reveal, in some cases for the first time, women's true impact on the arts at the turn of the 19th century.

African Women in Towns

An Aspect of Africa's Social Revolution

Publisher: CUP Archive

This 1973 book analyses the changing position of women in an urban context in sub-Saharan Africa. In spite of the fact that women, at the time of publication, were often important leaders of opinion and in these countries the proportion of women in professional work was at least as large as in Britain, few researchers and even fewer television and newspaper reporters paid them sufficient attention. As the new role of women in Africa was peculiarly a phenomenon of the city, Professor Little's book uses the concept of urbanization in order to analyse the radical changes taking place. He shows how certain women's movements were growing out of the African woman's desire for a new relationship with the man. This leads him to consider the part played by women in the political arena, and women's position not only in monogamous marriage, but also in extra-marital and sexual relationships.
