2. Hasel, Michael. "Pa-Canaan in New Kingdom Texts and Reliefs: Gaza or Canaan?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 59th Annual Meeting of the American Research Center in Egypt, Grand Hyatt Seattle, Seattle, WA, Apr 25, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <>
Publication Type: Abstract Proposal
Abstract: The most frequent translation of the place name Pa-Canaan in Egyptian texts is simply Canaan. Others have interpreted this toponym specifically as the city of Gaza and not a region or territory. The distinguishing factor for the latter interpretation is the prefix "pa" which indicates the use of the definite article. The argument has been made that the definite article provides further specificity to Canaan and thus refers to its capital Gaza. The implication would be that all occurrences of the name Canaan in narrative contexts of the XIX and XXth Dynasties would need to be read Gaza for they are all written as Pa-Canaan. This would have major repercussions on the Egyptian understanding of “the land of Canaan” referred to in other Near Eastern texts including the Amarna letters.

A complete analysis of all texts from the late New Kingdom would be most informative in reevaluating this issue. The study of an Egyptian understanding of place names in the eastern Mediterranean during the last several years has been made possible through the generous support of a Fulbright Scholar grant from the Cyprus Fulbright Commission, the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute, and the United States-Israel Education Foundation. This study has provided opportunity for the compilation and analysis of over 120 foreign toponyms during the Egyptian New Kingdom.

The focus of this paper on Pa-Canaan includes: (1) the Seti I reliefs at Karnak, (2) Papyrus Anastasi I, (3) the reference to "The-House-of-Ramses-Ruler-of-Heliopolis, -L.-P.-H. in Pa-Canaan” in Papyrus Harris I; and (4) the final hymnic-poetic unit of the Merenptah stela. From this survey of Egyptian texts and reliefs it will be suggested that Canaan was the Egyptian territory in Asia that encompassed a wide geographical region distinct from Hatti and Tehenu. According to a contextual study of New Kingdom sources, Pa-Canaan is to be understood as a distinct territory not to be confused or equated with Gaza. This is clarified by the specific use of both terms separately in the same texts. Pa-Canaan was a territory that began at the border city of Gaza at the distant end of the “Ways of Horus” and extended into the north.

Abstract: This study examines the way in which the most circulated Spanish newspaper, El País, framed the March 11, 2004 (11-M) Madrid train bombings through peace journalism or war journalism frames based on Johan Galtung’s classification. An analysis of the news articles in the immediate aftermath of the bombings finds both frames present. This analysis of El País demonstrates that the Spanish government attempted to use the media to wrongly suggest that the Basque separatist group ETA was guilty of the bombings. Although El País gives voice to the elite, it also shows the Spanish people’s feelings about peace, the Iraq war, and illuminates massive street protests.

Keywords: peace journalism, war journalism, Madrid training bombings, March 11, 2004

4. Lau, Montserrat. "Ana de San Bartolomé: Florecimiento y difusión Teresiana en Francia y los Países Bajos" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, New York, NY, Hilton New York, <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Blessed Ana de San Bartolomé (1549–1626) was a close friend and associate of Teresa de Ávila (1515–82). Teresa saw in Ana great potential, and had her serve as her confidante, secretary, and nurse. Although she had been an illiterate “white-veiled nun” in the convent, Ana learned how to read and developed into a competent administrator. The writings of Ana de San Bartolomé reveal a deep understanding of the Teresian Charism, and her testimony during the canonization process was fundamental in recognizing Teresa as a saint. In spite of the valuable studies on Ana carried out by Julián Urikiza, there is much left to do. The writings of Ana have been neglected and undervalued because of the focus on Saint Teresa, but this paper will bring to light Ana’s enormous contribution to the advancement of the Carmelite Reform and to social and religious thought in the sixteenth century.

5. Miller, Jeaneé. "The Historical Context of Neighborhood Racial Diversity and Crime in Philadelphia, PA" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Nov 18, 2015 <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <>

Abstract: It is not always the case that relationships between variables are consistent across a study area. Indeed, the idea that neighborhood demographic characteristics might influence neighborhoods in ways that are not stable across place or time is an interesting one. My previous work has shown that this is the case with the relationship between racial diversity and crime in neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2000, neighborhood racial diversity was related to higher levels of violent crime in some neighborhoods, but lower levels in others. In cases like these, it is oftentimes useful to explore the natural histories or historical trajectories of these neighborhoods to better understand their development and the reasons that this heterogeneity exists. This study analyzes racially changing neighborhoods in a historical context in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It traces demographic shifts, political swings, geographical developments, community activism, and other major historical fluctuations in these neighborhoods dating back to 1960. It then examines how changes in these characteristics corresponded with the larger migration patterns, civil rights movements, and crime trends. The result is a comparative case study that provides a back-story for interesting patterns that reveal themselves in the present.
