    Serhii Yefremov: Epitome of the Ukrainian Revolution

    Get PDF
    Yefremov’s personal characteristics exemplify the characteristic features of the Ukrainian revolution. He was an argumentative, pugnacious man, and the revolution was characterized by infighting. He was an institution builder, and that’s a key element of the Ukrainian revolution. He was ideologically an advocate of Ukrainian identity (sooner than social rights or state building) and that too was a feature of the Ukrainian revolution. His diaries and ego writing offer a variety of evidence of these aspects of his personality

    Revolution Revisited On March 21, 2012, SJSU Assistant Professor Kim Komenich spoke in the University Scholar Series hosted by Provost Ellen Junn at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Kim Komenich worked for 30 years as a photojournalist for the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco Examiner. He was awarded the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Spot News Photography for photographs of the Philippine Revolution he made while on assignment for the Examiner. Komenich’s current creative project, “Revolution Revisited,” is a 25th Anniversary look back at the 1986 Philippine “People Power” Revolution. In 2012, he will publish the book, Revolution Revisited, and a full-length documentary film by the same name.https://scholarworks.sjsu.edu/uss/1026/thumbnail.jp

    Staging Revolution: Form and Violence in La noche de los asesinos

    Get PDF
    Written within the first years of the Cuban revolution, José Triana’s La noche de los asesinos (1965) has traditionally been read as either a revolutionary or an antirevolutionary play. This article argues that more than its historical and political context, revolution constitutes La noche’s form. The concept of revolution as a violent, paradigm-shattering phenomenon relates to La noche’s shifting and unstable dramatic spaces. Triana creates a complex performative space that turns La noche into a dramaturgical exploration of revolution as violent change and transformation. Through Franz Fanon’s theoretical understanding of structural violence, this article ultimately investigates how La noche offers important insights into the experiential and emotional processes of the Cuban subject within the historical process of the revolution

    Conformal type of ends of revolution in space forms of constant sectional curvature

    Get PDF
    In this paper we consider the conformal type (parabolicity or non-parabolicity) of complete ends of revolution immersed in simply connected space forms of constant sectional curvature. We show that any complete end of revolution in the 33-dimensional Euclidean space or in the 33-dimensional sphere is parabolic. In the case of ends of revolution in the hyperbolic 33-dimensional space, we find sufficient conditions to attain parabolicity for complete ends of revolution using their relative position to the complete flat surfaces of revolution.Comment: 22 pages, 5 figure
