Once and always an imposter : reflections on self-doubt and growth
Cibelli, Brian author
2018
"The pages that follow explore the intersection of identity, becoming an adult, and "imposter syndrome", which though not formally considered a psychological disorder, is a term used to explain the insecurity successful people may feel about achieving the success they have. Personally, I delve into how I can barely keep my confidence up to be an English teacher and ice hockey coach, neither of which calls for life-or-death decisions or anything remotely capital-S serious from day-to-day. But I struggle with self-doubt, concern myself entirely with making sure the easy stuff--such as my organization, my demeanor, and my accessibility--presents well. My self-doubt bubbles from the nitty gritty, from the myriad small decisions that one could argue actually matter. And, since this is now my identity, one of the defining characteristics of my newly acquired adult life, it poses other important questions to be discovered. "

Good morning, Mr Sarra : my life working for a stronger, smarter future for our children
Sarra, Chris, author
St Lucia, Qld. : University of Queensland Press, 2012
This book is about one man's fight to turn the tide of low expectations. When Chris Sarra arrived as the first Aboriginal principal of Cherbourg State School in 1998, it was a time of high hopes but low expectations in Indigenous education. Over the next six years, he transformed the school into a national success story, but not without controversy along the way. From his childhood as the youngest in a large Italian-Aboriginal family, Chris was taught to be proud of who he was and where he came from. But he only began to understand that not every Aboriginal child grew up with this sense of worth when he started working as a teacher. He became determined to defy expectations of being Aboriginal and, in doing so, to change them for others. His role at Cherbourg finally gave him a chance to put his philosophy into practice. Along the way, he battled the media, the education system and a culture of complacency.

A phantom space for making friends... and enemies? : Cyprus's green line
Goodmann, Analisa, author
2018
"In this paper, I argue that the Green Line or Buffer Zone in Cyprus has been functioning as a de facto transitional justice mechanism since it was opened in the early 2000s. Specifically, I argue that the Buffer Zone is acting as a quasi-commemorative space (but without commemorating any particular narrative) by allowing space for the challenging of official narratives (which I define as a transitional justice act). This argument is supported by the many transitional justice initiatives and the increase in bicommunal dialogue and bicommunal activities that are a direct result of the opening of the Buffer Zone. I also discuss the survey I conducted of Cypriots and residents of Cyprus regarding their views on the Buffer Zone and the bicommunal movement. I assume that positive views towards the Buffer Zone and/or the bicommunal movement indicate participation in and approval of the two acting as catalysts for reconciliation between Turkish and Greek Cypriots. While the survey results are mixed, there is a clear majority in favor of the bicommunal movement. Therefore, I conclude that while the Buffer Zone is acting as a de facto transitional justice mechanism, which may lead to political and legal reform, the discourse surrounding the Buffer Zone is varied. This varied discourse indicates that Cyprus is in an ongoing transition. Furthermore, I argue that the Buffer Zone's functioning as a transitional justice mechanism has implications to the fields of transitional justice and conflict resolution, which may revolutionize the relationship between transitional justice, conflict resolution, and the rule of law."

The modern metropolis : digital culture and the Frankfurt School
Bratches, Reed, author
2018
"In many ways the virtual, digital spaces created by modern technology such as the smartphone is similar to the industrial cities of the 19th and 20th centuries. The industrial city, for the Frankfurt School, was the center of cultural criticism; here one could be so entrenched in culture as to create valid critique. In this thesis, I will show how the virtual space is analogous to the metropolis, but how it deepens the potential for cultural critique by shifting the perceptual abilities of the subjects. Using the Frankfurt School's arguments on distraction, aesthetics, and subject-object relations, I will demonstrate this enhanced potential, and show how the virtual space can be used for productive critical change "

"It was all started by a mouse" : examining animal representations in modern Disney films
Farbotko, Mariah, author
2018
"Since the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, Walt Disney Pictures has produced hundreds of films, many of them featuring memorable animal characters. While some of the company's early work has been criticized for a lack of cultural sensitivity, modern Disney films attempt to tell empowering stories that emphasize inclusiveness and respect for all living beings. This thesis specifically explores three Disney films released in 2016 - Zootopia , Finding Dory, and Pete's Dragon - and examines how they address current societal issues through the depiction of animals onscreen. Chapter one analyzes U.S. race relations as depicted in Zootopia through notions of anthropomorphism, animal representation, and agency. Chapter two explores the use of wild animals for human entertainment and reveals how growing societal support for the release of captive marine mammals, stemming from the documentary Blackfish, influenced Finding Dory. Chapter three examines cross-species relationships as depicted in Pete's Dragon and cautions against assumed notions of human exceptionalism. Analysis of the three films revealed Walt Disney Pictures addresses current societal issues through animal images on screen to remove audience barriers to identification; help viewers emotionally connect with the story; create safe spaces where important issues can be addressed; and in some instances, improve animals' positions in society. Disney has established itself as an international entertainment conglomerate, and with the recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox, its influence continues to spread. Recent Disney films tell impactful stories that reflect society's changing values, and it is important to critically examine the messages these films convey about both humans and animals to audiences around the world."

Hungry for more : a memoir of family, food, mental illness, and recovery
Bothe, Ida Charlotte, author
2018
"This food-themed memoir, composed of personal essays, poems, and recipes, offers an exploration of the psychological dimension of cooking, baking, eating, and not eating. Through a food lens, I examine my need and desire for comfort and security and the journey I have taken in search of an ever-elusive sense of well-being. While each essay, along with its corresponding poem and recipe, focuses on a particular period of my life, every piece is connected by a central theme of emotional, physiological, and spiritual nourishment, of which food is only part of the equation "

Contentment and midfulness : expanding freedom for prisoners
Glass, Lauren author
2018
"The following is an investigation into the potential benefits of mindfulness and contentment philosophy curriculum for incarcerated people, as delivered by universities. Prisoners are systemically underserved and abused people who deserve opportunities to expand their mental and emotional capacities as part of a restorative approach to criminal justice. Restorative justice proves to be more beneficial than America's predominantly retributive ethos in terms of cost, recidivism, and prisoner experience. This thesis argues for the adoption of a pedagogy that acknowledges the entirety of the person, and thus prioritizes their internal experience differently and sees it as inseparable from their external performance (ex. vocational and academic choices, self - regulatory behaviors). Existing prison philosophy programs and primary school contentment and mind fulness programs are examined in order to identify possible benefits and discuss appropriate application of existing curricula. Situational and cultural considerations unique to incarcerated populations are also explored, along with suggestions for university program development and implementation. Universities are best equipped to deliver such programming, and will need to do so with great critical care. Benefits of contentment and mindfulness programs for prisoners include decreased hostility and rumination, enhanced self-control, empathy, and prosocial behavior, and a perception of life as process-oriented. Further, anticipated improvements for prisoners with certain mental health problems include decreased anxiety (general and episodic), psychological symptoms, depressive symptoms, and addictive behaviors."

Harvard in the NFL
Farbotko, Matthew R., author
2018
"Harvard in the NFL draws upon my personal story and the previously untapped recollections of twenty former Harvard football players who have gone on to careers in the National Football League (NFL) throughout the past five decades. Each section reveals key moments and pivotal decisions in the unpredictable journey from college to professional football, as told through the first-hand experiences of the athletes who lived them. While the stories in this thesis are not necessarily unique to a football player from Harvard, they illuminate the tangible and intangible factors which contribute to the disproportionately high number of Harvard football players among all Ivy League players currently on active NFL rosters."

Protection or exclusion? : an investigation of prosecutorial discretion in American immigration politics
Johnston, Haley, author
2018
"This thesis will describe the uses of prosecutorial discretion throughout American immigration history. Prosecutorial discretion is a subjective decision by a U.S. government official to abstain from enforcing immigration laws against any undocumented individual immigrant or immigrant group. When viewing this history through the lens of prosecutorial discretion, which often took place individually and at times in secret, the true nature of deportation proceedings in each period of that history can be analyzed. Prosecutorial discretion serves as an accurate indicator for the government's consideration of an undocumented immigrant's rights during enforcement proceedings. Though the use of prosecutorial discretion often benefits the undocumented population, the practice is not beneficial when used in lieu of more permanent solutions like amnesty. The most recent form of prosecutorial discretion, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, has delayed the deportation of young immigrants without providing them with a permanent form of status. As of 2016, the Trump Administration has limited the practice of prosecutorial discretion significantly. While any prosecutorial discretion is better than none at all, there is a framework within which the policy functions in a way that simultaneously benefits the government and the undocumented immigrant population. This thesis will explore that framework while investigating and analyzing prosecutorial discretion over the course of its history."

Autobiography of a Hippo
Hartong, Mary Liza, author
2018
"Autobiography of a Hippo is a work of non-fiction. In this volume, I tell my life story through vignettes about my family, life, and love. The work was originally titled "How We Fell Apart," but this collection is as much about coming together as it is about coming apart. It is a coming of age and a coming out and a coming through narrative all at the same time."

In March
Kohr, Justine, Dominici, author
2018
"A work of fiction, yet inspired by my own life experiences growing up with an addict father in Western Massachusetts, In March is driven by a central thematic question: How do people become who they are today? Spanning a time period of twenty-five years, In March follows a young, courageous mother with a traumatic past; a father and husband who falls from grace and into the hands of addiction, crime, and ultimately, homelessness; and a daughter who must navigate adulthood and its complexities early, and fight against her history and the circumstances before her to achieve personal success. In March is a story of pain yet perseverance, forgiveness, and self-discovery."

Photography and empathy's ethical potential
Leong, amanda Caterina, author
2018
"With the recent refugee crisis in Europe, the issues surrounding DACA and the Muslim Ban in America, we seem to be facing a crisis in immigration. This crisis is communicated to the public through visual media-photographs, televised news, documentaries, YouTube videos- that define our perception of reality. The question that undergirds and guides my research is "Can the empathy that is generated by looking at photographs and other media work to ameliorate the immigration crisis?" Cultural theorists are divided on empathy's social impact. Wai-Kit Ow-Yeong's has argued that empathy can serve as a strong motivation for public action. On the other hand, Saidiya Hartman and other critics of empathy have discerned in this affect a tendency to involve a single onlooker in the suffering of a single individual in a private interaction that impedes collective public action. However, both critics and advocates of empathy are united in the belief that empathy can initiate a change in public and private attitudes towards immigrants. Building on this belief, I aim to explore how, in our media-saturated age, photographs in particular can generate empathy as an affective resource for the amelioration of the immigration crisis."

Experience based education : the power of mural making with adolescents in community--based art programs
Lin, Kuo-Pin author
2018
"Mural Art can play an influential role and be a powerful educational resource for adolescents, especially adolescents identified as in crisis or at-risk. In this thesis I tell the story of my work as a mural art educator with The Philadelphia Mural Art Program (PMAP). For one year, I worked with the PMAP and served as the lead teacher and mural artist for an after-school arts program and mural commission in the Ethiopian community of West Philadelphia. In analyzing the rich data I gathered during my tenure, I demonstrate how community-based art programs, like those offered by the PMAP, contribute to both the social and artistic development of adolescents and also benefit the wider community in which these programs are embedded. As part of my qualitative research, I reached out to the young adults who once participated in the program I directed, young adults who have since left high school and are now in college or working, and gave them an opportunity to reflect on their PMAP experience and analyze its impact. I conclude that community-based art programs for adolescents, especially those that culminate in the production of a major public art project like a mural: 1) foster positive identity development; 2) promote artistic development; 3) raise community awareness; 4) improve learning and motivation in other areas, and 5) provide ongoing and transferable life skills."

From "Purple" to "Rainbow" : re-defining lesbianism in Thailand
Limaksorn, Kawisara, author
2018
"Lesbianism, feminine women who love other equally feminine women, has long existed in Thailand, but barely visible, much less accepted by Thai society. In fact, most Thai only recognize female homosexuality between "masculine" women called "Tom" and their feminine partner, "Dee." Therefore, this qualitative study aims to explore the seemingly invisible and nearly unknown world of lesbianism in Thailand. The information was gathered via in-depth interviews with 10 Thai self-identified lesbians (aged 21-26), all of whom were living in Bangkok, Thailand. The selected three cases were then chosen as narratives to illustrate the lives, identity development, sexual-orientation discovery, and social acceptance, including support and rejection, of lesbians in Thailand. Historically, lesbianism was viewed as a "behavioral phase" rather than a "sexual identity" of a person. However, the greater exposure to westernization that comes with increasing influence of globalization in education and lifestyles appears to have empowered cosmopolitan women-enamored women to embrace the notion of lesbianism as "identity" and the desire to "come out." Still, as shown by the cases in this study, these women struggle to accept themselves as "lesbians" and to earn the acceptance for their newfound identities from their families and communities."

Who I am : told through personal essays about those around me
Bohan, Scott P., author
2018
"It was during Professor Barbara Kreiger's Non-Fiction: Personal Essay class when I discovered how writing could serve as the vehicle for reflection. I also realized there were many aspects of my life that I had not spent much time thinking about that were worthy of further examination. And, when compiled, these reflections could help me and those who read my essays understand the influences that have shaped me into the person I am today. While there have been many notable people and moments, I identified six that at this point in my life have greatly impacted me. Writing about these allowed me the opportunity to pause and realize how they affected not only my personal development, but also my relationships with others. These essays define and describe my cornerstones, my foundation, and understanding them is paramount to knowing me."

Situating the Rohingyas : the politics of space and the condition of being stateless
Moral, Radhika, author
2018
"My thesis will attempt to study the 'stateless' Rohingya people along the discourse of migration, nations and the state. The problem of migrancy from one region to another, attended by feelings of hostility and violence has led to the triggering of ethnic-religious conflicts and claims of land and indigeneity which further complicate the idea of homelands and nation. In probing the history and current predicament of the Rohingyas the thesis will also try to explore the politics behind the creation of ethnic communities. The study, conducted through both readings of secondary references and ethnographies and some primary material collected from the Thai-Myanmarese borderlands, has helped arrive at key notions about the politics of identity and dispossession particularly in the context of cultural differences (ethnicity and place) which is pronounced in the case of the Rohingyas significantly for the fact of being Muslim. The central question that the study hinges upon is the philosophical dilemma of a rights-based justice conundrum versus the human imperative of the dignity of livable lives. The thesis has adopted tools of sociological analysis in order to examine this complex issue while also relying on critical and cultural studies of the Burmese colonial moment which underpins the ethnicization of the people as well as the contemporary culture of conflict in the postcolonial life of the nation."

Education in a new society : renewing the sociology of education
edited by Jal Mehta and Scott Davies
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2018
In recent decades, sociology of education has been dominated by quantitative analyses of race, class, and gender gaps in educational achievement. And while there's no question that such work is important, it leaves a lot of other fruitful areas of inquiry unstudied. This book takes that problem seriously, considering the way the field has developed since the 1960s and arguing powerfully for its renewal. The sociology of education, the contributors show, largely works with themes, concepts, and theories that were generated decades ago, even as both the actual world of education and the discipline of sociology have changed considerably. The moment has come, they argue, to break free of the past and begin asking new questions and developing new programs of empirical study. Both rallying cry and road map, Education in a New Society will galvanize the field.

Across the globe, American-style and liberal arts universities are being established. From the first, the American University of Beirut, established in 1866, to the liberal arts institutions being established in Saudi Arabia, Ghana, and elsewhere in the twenty-first century, there is a clear sense of the global desire for the American approach to higher education as a way of counteracting traditional, more narrowly defined university educations. However, these universities operate in a distinctive dynamic that must learn to bridge one culture with another, and leadership of such institutions must by its nature focus on such complexities and tensions. Throughout the chapters of this book, this unique element of these universities will be better understood through the stories and experiences as presented by their presidents, provosts, and other academic leaders.

The resegregation of American education : the epidemic facing our public schools
Raley, Anna, author
2018
"Are American public schools today going through a period of resegregation? In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court in its decision Brown v. Board of Education, ruled that segregated schools in the United States failed to meet the parameters of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and that "separate but equal" schools were "inherently unequal". What has happened since Brown v. Board of Education? This thesis will explore that history, and it will conclude that the "resegregation" of public schools is occurring across the United States. It will analyze the problem of resegregation facing public schools. Racial and socioeconomic school segregation is potentially detrimental to both the students and the community as funds and resources are unequally allocated. This thesis uses three focus cities to examine resegregation: New Orleans, LA, Birmingham, AL, and New York City, NY. By tracing each city's educational origins and outcomes of educational policies and decisions from the Brown ruling to present day, it will to determine if resegregation is a true threat to public schools. From this discovery, it may be possible to identify solutions to what appears to be a significant U.S. socioeconomic problem."

Southerly
Novak, Margaux E., author
2018
"In the vein of a southern gothic epic, Southerly focuses on the relationships of a family living in a tight, coastal, North Carolina town in modern times. The story follows Stella, a teenager, in a bildungsroman style that allows the reader to experience the perspective of someone coming of age against the backdrop of the American south. Southerly addresses themes of family, illness, southern culture, and religion, while wrestling with the effects of tragedy and forgiveness on an individual and on a family. Amidst perplexing social stigmas and the difficult cultural realities of her day-to-day life, Stella is forced to confront polarizing expectations and challenges foisted on her by her divorced parents. With a riot of characters and a building storm, Stella ultimately arrives at a fork in her destiny as she realizes she must make a decision that will affect her forever. In the meantime, her family around her is springing leaks, and its hurricane season..."

Sick notes : the story inside the illness memoir meets case study
Millios, Amy N., author
2018
"In 2012, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune/auto-inflammatory form of arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis. I had been sick for close to 12 years, but because blood work and other testing didn't reveal any sort of disease process, I was passed from one doctor to the next, told that my symptoms were emotional in nature and related to the depression I struggled with since childhood. Within two months of my diagnosis, I was unable to work and this prompted me to reflect on how I became sick. This thesis explores this question from two perspectives: medicine and memoir. The first considers research on adverse childhood experiences and how they contribute to illness in adulthood. From the second, I present and consider numerous events from my childhood and growing up, reflecting on my experience as a patient and providing glimpses into the daily realities of my illness. Lastly, I include a lexicon of words and definitions which draw attention to, as well as name, all that was un-nameable and unsaid as I was growing up. The end result is a self - case study which explores the many shades of invisibility and silence."

An oral history of the United States Coast Guard Academy Class of 1980
Vonderheide, Benjamin R., author
2018
"The United States Coast Guard Academy is a premier academic institution with highly selective admissions dating back to 1876. One hundred years later, thirty-eight women entered the Academy for the first time. Fourteen women graduated and commissioned into the United States Coast Guard in 1980. Through the medium of oral history, I was able to consolidate all of their stories for the first time. I conducted twenty-one interviews with men and women, graduates and non-graduates. The memories of my participants help to recreate the atmosphere at the Academy over forty years ago. The goal of my project was to document a retelling of the joys and hardships faced by the first women to enter a previously all-male military institution. What I received was tremendous feedback about how the Coast Guard and the Academy assimilated women into their establishments. Many of the stories are unique and personal, but equally as many are memories of instances shared by all. The topics covered were not preset, nor were the questions fixed prior to our conversations. We discussed uniforms, living areas, academics, extracurricular activities, the press, disappointments, harassment and numerous other subjects. In most cases my inquiries focused on what stuck out to each person the most. The result was 19 individual memoirs that are by no means comprehensive but provide the reader with a snapshot of the experiences of the first women to integrate into the Coast Guard Academy. Nearly all of the participants remain connected to the Coast Guard or the Coast Guard Academy in some way. All of them maintained a sense of pride when discussing their experiences despite some of them being unpleasant. My thesis serves as a window into a small and protective military community. "

Social media networking : new challenges and strategies for counterterrorism
Pak, Daniel M., author
2018
"Since the invention, social media has become an integral part or human life in both personal and business aspects. Social media services have provided new avenues for spreading terrorist propaganda while offering new opportunities in the field of cross-border and impersonal communication. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in particular has established its presence on social media platforms. These platforms account for the continuous supply of human and financial resources to the organization. ISIS takes advantage of its ability to conduct its operations and activities without physical presence through its social media operations by inspiring and directing followers and supporters worldwide. Given the popularity of social media and ISIS's penetration of the online community, a variety of counterterrorism efforts and measures have been developed and introduced for scanning, detecting, and removing suspicious content. However, such counterterrorism responses have produced minimal effects in preventing the dissemination of ISIS messages via social media. The conducted preview of the existing body of knowledge highlights the scholarly focus on social media channels, official blames of social media entrepreneurs, and policymakers' reports on law enforcement. This research project seeks to conduct an in-depth investigation of the sociodemographic characteristics of different audiences and specific technical features of different platforms used by ISIS for its extremist purposes. Driven by a holistic research pursuit, this study utilizes a secondary case study design based on qualitative methodology to precisely examine, compare, and synthesize data concerning ISIS's usage of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube."

Co-education at Dartmouth : the first years of women at the College
MacNicol, Shadara author
2018
"During my first summer working in the Athletic Department at Dartmouth College, I can recall older male alumni coming into the office to ask about the location of a particular team photo or a specific team's trophy. While escorting these individuals or groups to other offices for further assistance or to the area of the item they were inquiring about, these Dartmouth men, often with their wives in tow, would start reminiscing. Almost every story would begin the same way and with very similarly worded phrases like, "Before you girls were allowed to go to school here ..." Being that I grew up in California, far away from Hanover, I honestly had no general awareness of the College's history as an all-male institution for the nearly 200 years since its inception. When I applied to the MALS program, I knew that I wanted to use my time at the College and as a participant of this program, to become better acquainted with how an institution with such a long-standing history that had excluded women for centuries had decided to open its doors to women. Initially, I knew that Cultural Studies would help broaden my understanding of Dartmouth's transition through the lens and intersectionality of gender and class-related issues. Although initially I was not quite sure what my exact path of exploration might be, all that changed when I enrolled in MALS 191, Oral History in Theory and Practice. Recounting the events that led to the admission of women and the first years of co-education at Dartmouth College through firsthand accounts of the young men and women who matriculated to the College coupled with the experiences of residents and administrators became an obvious choice for my thesis and the right vehicle to capture the essence of this pivotal period. I wanted to interview these pioneering spirits in an attempt to inspire the new generation of women at Dartmouth in a continued effort to help move women forward not only during their time at the College but more importantly for their many days beyond the town limit of Hanover.

"College Curriculum at the Crossroads explores the ways in which college curriculum is complicated, informed, understood, resisted, and enriched by women of color. This text challenges the canon of curriculum development which foregrounds the experiences of white people, men and other dominant subject positions. By drawing on Black, Latina, Queer, and Transnational feminism, the text disrupts hegemonic curricular practices in post-secondary education. This collection is relevant to current conversation within higher education, which looks to curriculum to aid in the development of a more tolerant and just citizenry. Women of color have long theorized the failures of injustice and the promise of inclusion; as such, this text rightly positions women of color as true "experts in the field." Across a variety of approaches, from reflections on personal experience to application of critical scholarship, the authors in this collection explore the potency of women of color's presence with/in college curriculum and emphasize a dire need for women of color's voices at the center of the academic process" --

Debunking the myth : are college athletes more prepared for the workforce?
Rumley, Kristen author
2018
"We live in a world where jobs and careers drive our everyday lives. However, knowing what path leads individuals to have the most successful career is very uncertain. At the end of a students' college experience, when students are applying for jobs, there is major controversy over who is most prepared for their career--athletes or non-athletes. A myth has raged on over the years that athletes experience character development due to their involvement in intercollegiate sports, because sports promote positive educational values on athletes, thus enhancing their preparation for the workforce. In short, this means that athletes are more prepared to work than non-athletes after college, simply because of the lessons they learned as an athlete. However, no one has ever researched to see whether this myth still stands, or whether it has merely misled many athletes. In order to solve the mystery behind this question, I went out and interviewed nineteen successful individuals, each with a very different, but very extensive background in hiring entry-level candidates right out of college. The objective was to determine what experiences in a student's life prepared them the most for the workforce. By talking to those who hire students and who interact with them as employees every day, they would be the most knowledgeable about what was the best driver for success. From colleges, to GPAs, to majors, to extracurricular activities, the list went on for what helped a student to be most successful in their career. Ultimately though, I found that although student-athletes do get a valuable educational experience from their sport, non-athletes can also get a very similar educational and character-building experience in other extracurricular activities. At the end of the day, what matters most is how much work experience a student has in their field, and how much dedication and time a student spent building themselves outside of the classroom. It doesn't matter what the activity is, as long as the student had an experience that was challenging enough to push a student to build their inner self, they would be prepared and qualified. "

Consequently, as Japan today finds itself feeling trapped with a sense of despair, it is to the Meiji era that we should turn, and more than to anyone else, the person we should turn to is Fukuzawa Yukichi.
