Questions related to Renaissance
As research proves the long-term damages of a Covid infection, I am seriously wondering why so few wear a mask deliberately in the Renaissance Societies?
Even as health authorities advise wearing a mask in indoor settings, very few do it. One-way ledger sharing is all over the place. Why?

while scooping through the world it is striking to see the different attitudes towards collectivistic ideas, e.g.:
- wearing masks during a pandemic
- the status of animals, plants, and the concept of nature
- the shared long-term thinking
- the applications and limitations of Artificial Intelligence; privatized or institutionalized supervision?
- the management of personal externalities and socialization within the personal ecosystem (provocations, anger, scapegoating, zoom-conferencing, etc.).
between Buddhist-influenced societies and protestant societies. There seems to be even a difference between catholic and protestant societies.
Of course, religion is only one factor in the explanation of collectivistic behavior within a society. Surely the Renaissance and Enlightenment influenced Protestantism too as well as the fit with Capitalism (Max Weber).
Would love to learn more about explanations and some research in sociology, anthropology, psychology, history, philosophy, and theology about this.
As known, the whole world is moving towards a renaissance in education which required transferring the expertise between countries. In general, some of the developing countries use the transferred system as it is without keeping into consideration the difference between cultures.
How is it bad to transfer the educational system that followed by a certain culture to a different one?
Could this affect the desired goals in the development wheel negatively?
MOOCS are gaining momentum and popularity among higher educational institutions over the globe due to their unique features to escalate access, equity and quality based education. Kindly suggest your opinion supported by valid text.
I am studying case study right now
I have a student who has got no international background got the Grade Equivalent of 3.5 (his test performance is comparable to the reading ability of an American average third-grader after the fifth month of the school year) recently. The test report is attached.
And I plan to do a case study on him. Reasons are as follow:
a.The case study is where the researcher takes an in-depth look at a specific situation (Mertens, 2020). Since the student never went to any international school, nor have any family member who is from abroad, but he got such splendid reading ability. I really want to take an in-depth look at his study.
b. Stake (2005) discusses collecting the following types of information for a case study: (a) information about the nature of the case, (b) background or historical information regarding the case, (c) the physical setting for the case, (d) other contexts related to the case, which may include things like the political context, (e) other cases related to this one, and (f) talking to relevant people to learn about this case. I am his teacher and very close to his family. Collecting data would be convenient.
c.Case study research is an investigative approach that can get a new and deeper understanding of a complex phenomenon (Mertens, 2020). Through a case study on this student, I could get some useful learning experience and share it with those who have children learning English. And that will be a great help.
I plan to collect data, such as interviews with his parents, observation in English reading class, his reading records, his test and quiz records. But I don't think those are enough. What else should I collect?
Please correct me if you spot anything wrong.
I’m eager to receive your reply.
How did Black writers and Black owned publications contribute to and influence the change in social order in Bronzeville in the 1930s through the 1950s during the period known as the Black Chicago Renaissance?
Myth is the biggest obstacle among historians to formulate any kind of history, some believe that myth might have some truth or some falsity as well. Myth has been a powerful tool for civilizations and religions to expand and flourish, only after the scientific revival and renaissance, it was challenged by truth seekers under the realm of positivism. But still, we are lacking the depth of understanding for the 'myth' as a subject. In fact, myth is not a priory or even not an extended human morality but it has helped us in the creation of this modern world.
They used almost the same dramatic conventions and techniques. According to you, in what way is Shakespeare different from Christopher Marlowe?
The Waqf (confined endowment) was one of the foundations of Islamic Renaissance that has led to a wide activity in scientific, architectural, and health-care movements. It has also resulted the establishment of several institutions which were integrated and vital for the community. These institutions have worked on improvising solutions to new problems. Early Muslims have been racing to establish their own waqf emphasizing the peculiarity of the different goals of each one. This research aims to study the waqf of Abdul Basit ibn Khalil the Damascene (790-857 AH / 1388 - 1450 AD) the Chief-inspector of the Egyptian armies. And I have included in the annexes two of these waqfs.
Was training the principles of linear perspective accessible to everyone?
Please recommend articles, books and any research that clarifies the conditions for perspective teaching in the workshops of the great Renaissance painting masters.
Can anyone explain the disparity between the encouragement of members of flagellant orders to demonstrate their self inflicted suffering for Christ and the visual depiction of saints and martyrs (and indeed Christ himself) suffering the most excruciatingly painful injuries without any representation of the agony they must have suffered?
Does anyone know of any paintings, particularly of the Gothic and Renaissance periods, that depicted physical pain?
Can truth ever hurt? Must it hurt?
Yes it can, if you have taken a contrary theoretical-philosophic-scientific position that you are willing to defend with your life and with your own take on the subject, having fallen in love with your own hypothesis, without concern for its evolution.
This is my last question/discussion on the subject of migraine and will contain all my publications or their links, past or future. There are many veils of falsehood in migraine research and many levels of truth -- hence the hurting phenomenon.
While truth is a single-version dispassionate bliss-of-intuition, for those who have invested a lifetime in its pursuit, getting caught on the wrong foot is as good as being guillotined. Admitting error is like being guillotined by the hour.
How do you know that you are hurting?
If you cannot sustain a fair dialogue
if you cannot balance without tripping
if you seek straws to exit the discussion
if silence or evasion gives you solace
if the research grant has gutted your
courage, and pithed your spinal cord
if real appears empirical, to you, and
if real appears empirical
if the grace of numbers clouds your vision
if you are betrothed to mesmerizing statistics
if you are lost in the woods of knowledge
if you are bewitched by the airy castles of print
if you know not the value of each tree
or shrub, in the wood of wisdom and the
breeze of intuition, and the Ocean, the Wind
pass by you, unnoticed, and communicate not
if you know not the value of foundations
if your heart warms to the applause of the herd
if you not the value of self-criticism, nor the
curbing of over-enthusiasm and restraint
you are set to hurt, no fear.
Now or in the future, no if.
This post will also contain some of my choice quotes from my publications, including my book.
Traditionally, economists have approached international trade and technological change from the perspective of countries as a whole. In contrast, recent research has emphasized cities and their local labor markets as the appropriate “unit of observation” when studying these issues. This regional approach is critical to understanding the heterogeneous effects of trade on labor markets in large countries, such as the United States. In the last few decades, a select group of U.S. cities such as Boston, New York and San Francisco have become emerging centers of global comparative advantage in new knowledge-based sectors, while other formerly industrial cities, such as Cleveland and Detroit, have lost their comparative advantage in traditional manufacturing sectors and experienced broad declines.
To promote research on these issues, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), with the support of the Smith Richardson Foundation, will convene a research conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 25-26, 2019. The conference will be organized by Edward Glaeser (Harvard University and NBER) and Stephen Redding (Princeton University and NBER).
The conference aims to draw together researchers from labor economics, international trade, public finance, urban economics, and related fields to address a range of issues concerning cities as centers of comparative advantage and other related themes:
§ How has globalization contributed to urban decline in some cities, and urban renaissance in others? How has it affected city-level labor markets and economic activity more generally? How has technological change influenced the nature of economic activity in urban and rural areas?
§ Why can some cities, like Seattle, successfully transition from an industrial to a post-industrial economy? Are labor market differences important contributors to this variation? How have transportation and industrial technologies shaped the spatial distribution of economic activity?
§ What are the implications of heterogeneous local labor markets for wage and income inequality? To what extent has there been an increased sorting of workers by skill across cities? Why has migration from poor places, like Detroit, to rich places, like San Francisco, become so sluggish? To what degree does trade in goods and services reduce the need for labor mobility?
§ How do public policies affect the growth of urban areas? Which place-based policies improve labor market outcomes for urban workers? What are the possible responses to the decline of industrial cities and industrial heartland of the United States? What policy issues emerge from the agglomeration of economic activity in new centers of comparative advantage?
Papers are welcomed on all aspects of cities as centers of comparative advantage. Both theoretical and empirical research, and combinations, are welcome. To be considered for inclusion on the program, papers must be uploaded by Sunday, August 25, 2019, to the following site:
Submissions from authors with and without NBER affiliations are welcome and submissions from early career scholars, and from researchers from under-represented groups are especially welcome. Please do not submit papers that will be published by October 2019. Decisions about which papers will be included on the program will be announced in September, 2019.
The NBER will cover the hotel and economy class travel cost for up to two authors per paper included on the program. All co-authors are welcome to attend the conference; space permitting, other participants are also welcome. Please direct questions about this project to email@example.com.
The Renaissance by the end of Middle Ages in Europe was so important great event that not only emancipation of humanity, but also speeding up the developing of science and technology. At same time to emancipate humanity from religion, I self believe of God indeed exists, and also advanced science and technology. Now the problem is what were the main factors to develop science and technology since the Renaissance?
At the time the Americas were discovered by European states the pennisula was surrounded by powerful Moslem states and apparently infinite steppe-land limiting its economic and political progress (this can be contested), but from the discovery Europe took flight. Would Europe have taken flight anyway especially taking into account Portugeuse successes in the Far East? Did comparative European stability come from looking outside of the pennisula, and did the Late Renaissance occur because the Late Medieval mind was fully opened through exploring and controlling new land?
Colleagues and I have undertaken a recent project looking at the use made of school farms in Tasmania, Australia. I was surprised to find out that there were 30 different kinds of school farm across a small State (population 500,000). These school farms often went back to the 1930s and 1940s. They had increasingly become 'shoestring' operations in recent times with their value questioned....And yet there may be a renaissance with the arrival of more flexible vocational curricula and shifts back to respecting community voices in educational provision. It would be great if colleagues with interesting/worthwhile/innovative examples of educational practice around school farms could share here.
I am used to edit Latin Renaissance Poetry. Frequently I do lexical searchs in the Latin Library of Brepols on-line. This let me find the text of the Antiquity which is being imitated, for instance.
As I am now resarching about a manuscript with Spanish texts dated in 16th Century, I would like to use some other similar Data-base of Spanish Renaissance texts in which I could do that kind of lexical searchs. So I could confirm the authory of a text, for example, or access to the published version of it.
Thanks in advance.
"Scottish Dauphiness, Mary Stuart, was being bred up with the French princesses in all the culture and refinement of the Renaissance. She was about the same age as the little Count Palatine [Johann Kasimir (von Pfalz-Simmern) ], and one wonders whether the children were friends."

Beside authors of the Italian Renaissance, I have got two examples: Johannes Althusius and Justus Möser, but perhaps even Montesquieu did belong to this group. I am also interested if you see any generic differences between political thought based on experience of and referring to governing a community of a city's size and of governing a whole country?
I have speculated on a bridge between mercury exposure and patterns of an unusual medical condition documented in the Languedoc region of France from approximately 1550- 1776 (as mentioned in an 1935 article by Kellett on Sir Thomas Browne and The Morgellons). The use of mercury in dyes may account for the widespread documentation of these symptoms.
My main topic is on decorum and propriety found in this epic poetry and what are the impact which the Renaissance period had on such kind of works.
I am looking for research (books, journal articles, reports) on Baroque era hermitages. I am primarily interested in those in Italy, Germany and Central Europe, however I would also like to hear about sites in other areas of Europe. I am primarily interested in locations and their landscape settings, but history and architecture are also of interest. Renaissance sites, and a general history of hermitages would also be of interest.
A small lutheran community coming from Germany exists in Lyon from the 16 century. This group owned a church, settled in Geneva from 1707.It was mostly composed of traders who went to Geneva four times a year for the holy communion. But, from 1770 onward, when the Calvinists from Lyons got their priest, the Lutherans went more and more to that church, letting down Geneva. For about 75 years, the Lutherans disappeared from Lyons. At the turn of the eighteen and nineteen centuries, the community spent her life in the shade of the Calvinist church. Between 1800 and 1850, the immigration movement of swiss, germans and Alsatians was quickening. In 1851, after multiples fruitless tries during the last fifty years, the Lutheran reverend Georges Mayer create an evangelic german church which is quickly linked with the Augsburg Confession. The german community managed the church for nearly 30 years until the arrival of the first French vicar in Lyons .For another 30 years, the relations were stormies between the two communities. The first world war marked the death of the german parish. The French church survived with difficulties during the twenties and thirties. The “renaissance” was due to two extraordinary personalities: André Desbaumes and Henry Bruston The Lutheran church became an inescapable part of the Lyons’s oecumenism and opened itself to the world.2007 marked the beginning of the merger between the Calvinist and Lutheran churches.
I also would be grateful for resources of measured data on compositions of bronzes from the quattrocento to the modern age.
