    Javits Fellowship, Honorary Andrew W. Excerpted from Worldmaking by David Milne. Mahan viewed international arbitration as an unnecessary constraint to action that powerful nations like the United States should avoid — for this Achilles should have no unprotected heel. Disidentifications is also something of a performance in its own right, an attempt to fashion a queer world by working on, with, and against dominant ideology. Grounded in twenty years of fieldwork as dramaturg and playwright, Kondo mobilizes critical race studies, affect theory, psychoanalysis, and dramatic writing to trenchantly analyze theater's work of creativity as theory: acting, writing, dramaturgy. Sider argues that part of the theory of structure is an account of how structure connects to other concepts.

    Milne demonstrates beyond any doubt the importance of the intellectuals who put these ideas into action--for better or worse.

Goodman, in this book, addresses these problems and left me convinced of his overall claim. However, Goodman saves his argument by demonstrating how there is a range of kinds of "rightness" conditions that are applicable to symbols and world-making.

Dennis Mahan's desire to immerse his children in the societal norms of the genteel, slaveholding South informed his decision to send Alfred to Saint James School in Maryland, an Episcopalian boarding school attended overwhelmingly by the well-heeled offspring of conservative southerners desirous of an education that ignored Uncle Tom's Cabin and treated chattel slavery as part of the natural order of things.
