Environmental Activism 1. The large mainstream environmentalism groups started to compromise too much with regulatory agencies and bureaus, starting with the Glen Canyon Dam project. This began an estrangement with the mainstreams that culminated in the rise of more militant groups like Earth First!

The House Of The Seven Gables
The House Of The Seven Gables
The House of the Seven Gables American literature reflects life and the struggles faced during existence. Symbols are an eloquent way for an author to create a more fully developed work of art. The stories themselves tell a tale; however, an author also uses symbols to relay his message in a more subtle manner. Nathaniel Hawthorne was one of the earliest authors to use symbols as an integral part of his plots. This is clearly seen in both The Scarlet Letter and in The House of the Seven Gables.

On his return, all traces of the colonist having lived there for those three years had vanished. No Jamestown colonist is known to be seen from again. So what happened to them during those three y

Heinrich Schliemann We could describe (Heinrich) Schliemann's excavations on the hill of Hissarlik and consider their results without speaking of Troy or even alluding to it, Georges Perrot wrote in 1891 in his Journal des Savants. Even then, they would have added a whole new chapter to the history of civilization, the history of art (qtd. in DuchÍne 87). Heinrich Schliemann's life is the stuff fairy tales are made of.

The Epistemology of Cindy Sherman: A Research Method for Media and C
Humanities research is widely considered to be the sole province of academic scholars, yet avant-garde artists practise their own versions of humanities research. As critics, we tend to applaud the avant-garde for its anti-linear, anti-rational, anti-Enlightenment qualities, but we do so even as we continue to reproduce the same form of criticism, employing linearity, rationality, and the rhetoric of scientific realism. Avant-garde artists invent research methods by using media as research tools
