The Use Of Storytelling And The Experience Of Teaching In A Syrian Refugee Camp In The Context Of The Refugee Crisis In Lebanon, Its Various Actors, And Its Lasting Effects, Jad F. Zeitouni 2020 Texas Tech University

The Use Of Storytelling And The Experience Of Teaching In A Syrian Refugee Camp In The Context Of The Refugee Crisis In Lebanon, Its Various Actors, And Its Lasting Effects, Jad F. Zeitouni

The Macksey Journal

The Syrian refugee crisis provides a modern context for a very old problem. One of the smallest and most financially and politically unstable nations, Lebanon has become one of the largest receivers of Syrian refugees. While NGOs have served a leading role in responding to the crisis in Lebanon by providing services including healthcare and education, their efforts have been hindered due to economic and political instability in Lebanon. With a massive refugee crisis underway that has displaced families around the world due to violence, persecution, and crippling poverty, much of the world has been complacent. This paper delves into ...

الجهل بالعربية ومنشأ الانحراف, Mohammad Al-Terk

Al Jinan الجنان

تنبع أهمية هذا البحث من أنه يتوخى الدراسة الجادة عن أهمية اللغة العربية وضرورتها، والجهل بها يؤدي إلى الانحراف في الدين، والشطط في الأقوال والأفعال، لذلك فإن تعلّم اللغة العربية ضرورة شرعية، وحاجة اجتماعية للارتقاء بالناطقين بها، لذا بذلت جهود جبارة في مقاومة اللحن وتقويم اللسان

Syrian And Lebanese Identity In The American South, Caetlind Moudy

Honors Theses

81818app手机版下载For Americans of Arab descent, identity can present a number of difficulties to define within the existing ethnic and racial categories of the United States. While several scholars have looked at the ways that Muslims American of Arab descent navigate these categories, less attention has been paid to the complex self-identification Christian Arab Americans, many of whom come from Lebanese and Syrian backgrounds.

Reviving Refuse: Individual Agency In Meknes, Morocco’S Waste Management Services, Anna Gleason 2020 William & Mary

Reviving Refuse: Individual Agency In Meknes, Morocco’S Waste Management Services, Anna Gleason

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis examines the role of formally-employed sanitation workers, called muzbil, and self-employed scavengers, known as mikhala81818app手机版下载, in Meknes, Morocco's waste management process, and how their social statuses impact the perceived success of waste collection and recycling. While often seen as piecemeal, the interconnected processes of waste management and recycling between the formal and informal sectors constitute a relatively complete sanitation service. Mainstream discourse in Morocco highlights the role of the formal sanitation sector—that is, work legally contracted by the government—in providing municipal waste collection and recycling, often to the exclusion of informal labor. However, examining the ...

The Case For Early Arabia And Arabic Language: A Reply To The New Arabia Theory By Ahmad Al-Jallad, Saad D. Abulhab

Publications and Research

A reply to an article published on May 23rd, 2018, in The New Yorker magazine by Elias Muhanna, titled A New History of Arabia, Written in Stone, introducing a new theory by Ahmad al-Jallad, a Harvard trained scholar of ancient Near East languages and scripts, asserting that the Arabic language (and presumably the Arabs) was originated in the south Levant desert and migrated southward. This theory would reverse the established conclusions set forth by the esteemed work of numerous Islamic Arab linguists and historians, over more than a thousand years, who believed the Arabs and the Arabic language originated in ...


Constructions Of Democratic Citizenship And Civic Education In Tunisia, Abigail Smith 2020 SIT Study Abroad

Constructions Of Democratic Citizenship And Civic Education In Tunisia, Abigail Smith

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Although Tunisia has made significant progress in establishing procedural democracy since the 2011 revolution, the state still faces significant challenges in consolidating their new spirit of democracy throughout society. This trouble includes difficulty fostering participation from its citizens, particularly among youth aged 18-30. This article hypothesizes that these difficulties stems largely from the state’s failure to construct a concept of Tunisian citizenship in line with democratic ideologies. Citizenship construction is considered as a political science concept that describes the mechanisms by which states relate with their citizenry with the goal of defining citizen interactions with the government and national ...

Facebook’S Façade: Understanding The Disillusionment Of Tunisian Youth, Adam Cooper

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

81818app手机版下载Over the past nine years, Tunisian youth voter participation has been incredibly low. Once leaders of the country during its democratic revolution in January 2011, youth in Tunisia are now disillusioned with the Tunisian political sphere and have remained absent from formal politics, a transition that is both confusing and worrying. Tunisian youth have also had a dominant presence on Facebook during this time, often utilizing the online space for political activity in lieu of voting in elections and holding membership in political parties. This paper examines the relationship between the Facebook usage and participation in elections of Tunisia youth ...

The Light of Islam

This article is the first analysis of the syntactic study of the Arabic compounds used in the book “Qisasi Rabghuzi”, which is the first example of Uzbek classical literature written in Turkish language and based on Islamic sources. The book uses a number of Arabic compounds and consists of words and phrases. The method of making Arabic compounds in the work and the determination of their status in the Turkic language is important in studying the history of Uzbek linguistics and Arabic studies. In the vocabulary of the language, many syntactic vocabulary units are formed, and because this method of ...

Gender & Sexuality Studies Student Work Collection

81818app手机版下载This project is a quick review and analysis of different socio-cultural impacts that influence the formation of a Muslim woman’s identity through the embodiment of womanhood and motherhood.

Transitional Portraits: Syrian Immigrants Of The North American Mahjar In 'Abd Al-Masih Haddad's Prose, Benjamin Smith 2020 Swarthmore College 81818app手机版下载

Transitional Portraits: Syrian Immigrants Of The North American Mahjar In 'Abd Al-Masih Haddad's Prose, Benjamin Smith

Arabic Faculty Works

This article argues that the 1921 collection of diasporic short stories Hikayat al-mahjar, written by ‘Abd al-Masih Haddad, makes a unique and notable contribution to mahjar literature by mobilizing formal literary techniques and innovative thematic content to capture a Syrian immigrant community engaged in a transitional moment in America. This paper situates Haddad (best known as the founder of the biweekly Arabic newspaper al-Saʼih, and a founding member of the literary society al-Rābiṭa al-qalamiyya) among his literary peers and provides an analysis of Hikayat al-mahjar that demonstrates the work’s points of convergence and divergence from the literary norms of ...

The Power Of Language: An Analysis Of Language Use And Attitudes In Moroccan Universities, Mikaela K. Thomas 2020 Bucknell University

The Power Of Language: An Analysis Of Language Use And Attitudes In Moroccan Universities, Mikaela K. Thomas

Honors Theses

81818app手机版下载This study examines the connections between language use and attitudes in Moroccan universities. Morocco is a North African country that is historically multilingual, with communities speaking Moroccan Arabic (Darija), indigenous Amazigh, French, and English, in addition to the Standard Arabic used in government and by the Muslim community. The French Protectorate from 1912 to 1956 ushered in colonial language policies and imposed the French education system that enforced linguistic hierarchies. While the subsequent Arabization period attempted to reestablish the importance of Standard Arabic in Morocco, the policies failed to promote true multilingualism by ignoring the Amazigh and Darija languages. Today ...

Exposure To Household Secondhand Smoke Among Adolescents In Kuwait: Results From Two School-Based Cross-Sectional Studies, Ali H. Ziyab, Mohammad Almari, Abdullah Al-Taiar

Community & Environmental Health Faculty Publications

INTRODUCTION:81818app手机版下载 Detrimental effects of secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure are well established; however, data on SHS exposure among adolescents in Kuwait are lacking. Hence, this study sought to estimate the prevalence of household SHS exposure among two samples of adolescents in Kuwait and assess its variation by socioeconomic status and parental education level.

METHODS: Data from two large school-based cross-sectional studies were analyzed. Adolescents attending public middle (n=3864; aged 11-14 years) and high (n=1959; aged 14-19 years) schools throughout Kuwait were enrolled in 2016-2017, and parental self-reported household SHS exposure was ascertained.

Empire And Ruins In Nineteenth-Century Egypt, Adin Becker

Pomona Senior Theses

81818app手机版下载Modern Egypt began as a site for academic exploration and exploitation. Its tremendous archeological riches, indisputable centrality within the world of Islam, and complex multifaceted cultural makeup have piqued the interests of academics worldwide. For centuries, scholars have fantasized about “what lay beyond the water,” a land where they knew “colossal relics of the oldest-known human civilization were concentrated along the Nile in crumbling piles between two vast, usurping deserts, amidst a modern population that professed faith in Islam.”1 Absent material motives, however, Egypt long remained a land of mystery for the West, ripe for discovery and exploration. Egypt ...
