Belgian University Offers Course to Study Taylor Swift Lyrics [Video]

Belgian University Offers Course to Study Taylor Swift Lyrics

Belgian University Offers Course , to Study Taylor Swift Lyrics. Belgium's Ghent University will debut a new course this fall called "Literature: Taylor's Version.". The course was developed by assistant professor Elly McCausland, who also has a blog called "Swifterature," CNN reports. . According to McCausland, "Swift makes frequent allusions to canonical literary texts in her music.". Using Swift’s work as a springboard, we will explore, among other topics, literary feminism, ecocriticism, fan studies, and tropes such as the anti-hero. , Via course syllabus . Swift’s enduring popularity stems, at least in part, from the heavily intertextual aspect of her work, and this course will dig deeper to explore its literary roots, Via course syllabus . Even those who aren't fans of Taylor Swift are encouraged to take the course, CNN reports. . The purpose of the course is to think critically about Swift as an artist and writer, and to use the popularity of her music as a ‘way in’ to a corpus of literature that may have shaped her work, Via course syllabus . McCausland said that she'd been considering Swift's lyrics for analysis for quite some time, but the release of 'Midnights' last fall "really crystallized" the notion. There’s a song on there called ‘The Great War,’ which uses the First World War as an analogy for heartbreak… That made me think of Sylvia Plath’s poem ‘Daddy,’ in which she uses the Holocaust to discuss her troubled relationship with her father. , Elly McCausland, via statement. This appropriation of historical pain and war as a metaphor (for love and loss)— I started thinking about other literary parallels and that’s where the course came from, Elly McCausland, via statement. The course "is believed to be the first of its kind in Europe," CNN reports

Canadian House of Commons Speaker Apologises for Honoring Controversial WWII Figure | Oneindia News

Following Canada PM Justin Trudeau's allegations of Indian involvement in Nijjar killing, another Canadian controversy emerges. The speaker of Canada's House of Commons issued an apology for commending an individual during a parliamentary meeting who had served in a Nazi unit during World War Two. Just two days prior, Speaker Anthony Rota had publicly acknowledged 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka as a "Ukrainian hero" within the Canadian Parliament. It was later revealed that Hunka had served in World War II as a member of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS. This revelation came to light following demands for an apology from the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights organisation. #JustinTrudeau #controversy #NijjarKilling #Canadian Parliament ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.102~

What Is Yom Kippur, the Holiest Day of the Jewish Year? [Video]

What Is Yom Kippur, the Holiest Day of the Jewish Year?

What Is Yom Kippur, , the Holiest Day of the Jewish Year?. 'National Geographic' explains that Yom Kippur comes as the emotional climax of the Jewish faith's holiday period that begins with Rosh Hashanah. Yom Kippur, or the "day of atonement," comes on the tenth day of Tishri, which is the first month of the civil year and the seventh month of the religious year. On the Gregorian calendar, Yom Kippur will take place on September 24, 2023. According to tradition, the holiday can be traced back to the prophet Moses. Also known as the Days of Awe, Yom Kippur is a day for Jews to perform prayers, repent and give to charity to influence which of God's books their names are written in. According to the faith, God inscribes names into one of three books on Rosh Hashanah. . One book is reserved for good people, another for evil people and a third for those who are not totally good or evil. On Yom Kippur, work is forbidden, and atonement takes the shape of fasting and refraining from bathing, having sex, wearing shoes or applying lotion. . Attending services at a synagogue is a central part of Yom Kippur. Five different services have different purposes, including prayers for the dead. . Finally, to mark the end of the 25-hour fast, a ram's horn is blown, and congregants return home to break their fast with family and friends.
