The border territory of the western half of northern California and southern Oregon is a region with a distinct landscape, people, and culture. The physical landscape of this region—site of the confluence of the Klamath, Siskiyou, Cascade, and Coastal mountain ranges and multiple watersheds (including the Rogue and Klamath Rivers)—defies artificial state boundaries and directly influences the region's culture, including its local industry (including ranching, farming, orchards, timber, outdoor recreation, and others), history, and politics (such as water use issues in the Klamath Basin).

L. Michelle Baker

The second decade of the twentieth century saw the publication of two landmark studies that were to change the approach of poets and scholars alike: Jessie Weston's From Ritual to Romance (1920) and James Frazer's The Golden Bough (1922). Both works collected and analyzed a series of legends from different cultures and emerged with a specific pattern of such a ubiquitous nature that it appeared to have the status of an archetype. Neither would be possible at the start of the twenty-first century.

Laura Scuriatti (ECLA, Berlin, Germany) and Esther SÁNCHEZ-PARDO (Universidad Complutense, Madrid, Spain)

The British poet and painter Mina Loy (1882-1966) lived in Italy, France, Germany and the United States, taking part in or conversing with Futurism, Surrealism, New York dada, and engaging in productive aesthetic dialogue with Djuna Barnes, Gertrude Stein, Marcel Duchamp, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Mabel Dodge, Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. Loy's poetry and visual production call for an interdisciplinary approach which may account for the multiple cultural forces encroaching on her work and enabling its complexity to emerge.

PROTESTANT MISSIONS AND EMERGENCE OF INTELLIGENTIA IN COLONIAL SOUTH INDIA

Monday, December 21, 2009 - 7:25am
DR. M. CHRISTHU DOSS

missionaries' initiatives and ameliorative measures to woo the depressed classes through other 'material' means, healthcare and other soco-economic policies and programmes did not yield the results which the missionaries expected. On the contrary, the intervention of Christianity invariably brought about a significant social transformation in general and radical difference in the social and cultural life of the converted believers in particular. The process of conversion is a complex social mechanism through which the caste ridden Tamil society was exposed to the new aspects of the modern world with regard to life, religion, culture and identity.
