This collection of stories was written by Dakota Sioux author Zitkala-Sa, also known as Gertrude Bonnin. Helen Keller sent a testimonial letter to the author on August 25, 1919: "I thank you for your book on Indian legends. I have read them with exquisite pleasure. Like all folk tales they mirror the child life of the world. There is in them a note of wild, strange music." The text here presented was published in 1921 by Hayworth Publishing in Washington, D.C.
For the purposes of peer review and stronger scholarship, the authors of Beyond Populism present these manuscripts on Manifold. This book is under contract with West Virginia University Press.
This project presents reflections by CUNY Graduate Center faculty, staff, and students on ongoing work on open educational resources and open pedagogy. These projects have been supported by the Teaching and Learning Center and GC Digital Initiatives.

This publication comes out of those dialogues and addresses the way we think about oral histories, radical archives, and public engagement today. The project was generously supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research at the Center for Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY.

This course will discuss the history of the development of the atomic bomb. Number of scientific breakthroughs in atomic and nuclear physics during 19-th and the first part of 20-th centuries led to possibility of the making of the atomic bomb. We also discuss the political context in which the bomb was developed, and personal stories of the leading scientist involved and corresponding moral issues arising from the development and use of the bomb. There is no development in modern history that has had more impact on man’s scientific, political, and moral consciousness than the making of the atomic bomb and its use against the Japanese at the end of WWII. It is a singularity of such power that its ultimate consequences for humanity are still beyond our perception. This course attempts to tell the story primarily from the point of view of the history of the science involved. Also the students will see the need for the integrated perspective in order to understand how science, political history, ethical values and personal motivations are interconnected in this story. To understand this story is to understand the complexities and responsibilities that have accompanied the emergence of modern society.

An annotated discovery of Emerson's homage to the infamous Renaissance man that wrote the constitution for the Republic of Letters. As we travel Emerson's insight into the bard, the annotations serve as an off-ramp to inspire thought and conversation, supplemented with reputable external resources. The range of topics is diverse, but all overlap with the great playwright and his works. Of the explored are Shakespearean Metaphysics, madness as mental illness, a Nazi-approved German translation, Herder insisting Shakespeare was the cause for Goethe's abysmal work, and more. Each of these various themes stems from Emerson's text; serving as our guide through the divergent, yet intersectional, points of discourse on Shakespeare's life and work.
