      Az előadás elhangzott: Dunaújváros, 2010. május 8-án. Helyszín: József Attila Könyvtár Előadó: Dr. Kéri Katalin a PTE-BTK Neveléstudományi Intézet Nevelés- és Művelődéstörténeti Tanszékének vezetője, egyetemi docens „Ami az emberi lényeket illeti, az iszlámban a férfi és nő Isten előtt egyenlő. Mindketten Allah teremtményei (Korán 4:1; 7:19; 49:13), és mindkét nemre vonatkoznak a hívők közösségének törvényei. Az emberi élet megítélése kapcsán tehát elmondható, hogy az iszlámban nem a hívő neme számít, csakis gondolatainak és cselekedeteinek milyensége. Összefüggésben azzal, hogy a nő is emberi lény az iszlám szerint, a Korán elítélően szól a leánygyilkosságokról. Ezt tanúsítja többek között az alábbi részlet: „...és amikor az élve eltemetett kislányt megkérdezik: miféle bűnért öletett meg? (...) s a Pokol tüze föllángol, a Paradicsom pedig közel kerül – megtudja (minden) lélek, hogy mit hozott magával.” (81:8-9, 12-14.) Egy másik szúra szerint: „...ha valamelyiküknek leánygyermek születését hozzák hírül, orcája elsötétedik és haragvás tölti el; elrejtekezik az emberek elől a rossz miatt, amit hírül hoztak néki: vajon megtartsa-e őt a szégyenre, vagy rejtse el őt a homokba? Bizony, rosszul ítélkeznek!” (16:58-59) Ibn Hanbal – felidézve Mohamed próféta mondásait – 1957. hadíszában az alábbiakat írta: „Bárkit, akinek lánya van, és nem öli azt meg, nem is bántalmazza és nem részesíti előnyben a fiút, Allah beereszti a Paradicsomba.”

          Here is a filmed version of my seminar on the basics of Roman dress. I know I talk fast, and not toward the camera, but it's hard to film an SCA class at an event without disrupting anyone. I'm sure I will get it down eventually. Please email me if you have any questions. My downloadable "module" content is available here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4jf5ZhBMl5xNHZKMGxkcjFKUGs/edit?usp=sharing Also visit my newish blog at http://annasrome.blog.com.

              To visit Guédelon is like a journey into history. The reason is as simple as unbelievable. In the forest of Saint-Sauveur a castle will be build. But not the way we are used to. 50 craftsworkers are building a castle with abidance by the XIIIth century techniques in a natural site which provides them with every building material: water, stone, earth, sand and wood. In Guédelon, there is no excavator, no drill, no electricity. Quarriers, stone hewers, masons, carpenters are working just like seven centuries ago. That's a continuous, lively and progressive building yard where towers, curtains and the keep will spend 25 years coming out from earth. The site is well-known in France. Around 350.000 visitors are joining this site every year (this is also the way the project is financed). Reinhard Kungel and his team is filming in Guédelon since 2000. After realizing a 45minute documentary for ARTE in 2003 and a special program for kids in 2007 (3 x 15 Min., WDR) now they finished a long-term-documentary from the beginning until 2010.

                Given by William Short, OFM, Franciscan School of Theology Christopher Ocker, San Francisco Theological Seminary, respondent Tuesday, November 5, 7:00 pm, Chapel of the Great Commission, Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley Franciscans arrived in medieval Paris (1219) and, despite dramatic conflicts, made significant contributions at the University there, moving from philosophy to theology. Cisneros, the Franciscan founder of Alcala (1499), reimagined the University through the study of languages to theology, a preparation that helped Franciscans in founding the College of Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco in Mexico (1533). These changes can serve as a metaphor for the changing face of theological education today, in California and around the world. The 2014 move of the Franciscan School of Theology from the GTU in Berkeley to affiliation with the University of San Diego serves as the occasion for exploring this topic in the GTU Distinguished Faculty Lecture this year.

                  In this fascinating talk, Hindi Urdu Flagship Director, Rupert Snell, presents his recent work on the diverse genre of autobiographical writing in Hindi. The talk, entitled Autobiography is Another Story: “Lives” in Hindi, features audio recordings of a number of Hindi Urdu Flagship students and faculty reading from a wide variety of Hindi autobiographies. According to Snell, his research “looks at several kinds of autobiographical writing in Hindi – revisiting a genre in which I have previously done translations and literary analysis.The texts included here vary widely, from self-consciously literary works to more spontaneous memoirs by ‘amateur’ writers. Most of the examples were written in the second half of the 20th century, but their narratives typically pertain to its first half and hence show a natural intertextuality in shared themes such as the Independence movement. Just as there are similarities of theme, so are there wide differences in literary conventions, narrative technique, and tone, and my aim is to compare and celebrate these in an exploratory overview of the genre.” Snell’s published work includes numerous textbooks and readers in Hindi and its pre-modern dialects. His research interests focus on the poetics of Braj Bhasha poetry from temple and court, and he is preparing a translation of the Satsai of Biharilal for the Murty Classical Library of India (Harvard University Press). His interests in Hindi autobiography stem from his translation of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s 4-volume memoirs as a single volume with the title, In the Afternoon of Time (1998).
