Her political career is an astounding example of the higher capability and intellect of a woman. Born on May 15, 1937, in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Madeleine Albright was the second daughter of Jose and Anna Korbel. She had a brother, John and sister, Katherine. Nazi occupation made her family flee to England, although they returned to postwar Czechoslovakia in 1945, only to find their home country being submerged into Soviet Empire. A major portion of her life was spent in the belief that her family fled for political reasons, but it was only until 1997 that she came to know the truth that her family was Jewish and that three of her grandparents were victims of the holocaust.
He then moved on to Cambridge to continue his education and began actual work within the field of archaeology. Some of the major sites he worked in were the Rift Valleys in Kenya, Olorgesailie area, East Turkana, and at Peninj by Lake Natron. Through the completion of his work at Olorgesailie, Glynn was actually able to publish his doctoral thesis and received his PhD at Cambridge. During this process, he was also revered as a teacher at the University of California, Berkeley and eventually went on to teach at Harvard in 1983. Unfortunately, during a trip to Peking, Glynn became in ill and was rushed to a hospital in Tokyo where he passed away at the age of 47 while preparing for transportation to the United States for treatment (“Dr.
She later worked as a maid to the lead singer in a traveling Gilbert & Sullivan theatrical company (Wikipedia). In 1917, Hurston began attending Morgan Academy, the high school division of Morgan College in Baltimore, Maryland. It was at this time, and apparently to qualify for a free high-school education, that a 26-year-old Hurston began claiming 1901 as her date of birth (Wikipedia). She graduated from Morgan Academy in 1918. As an adult, Hurston traveled extensively in the Caribbean and the American south and immersed herself in local cultural practices to conduct her anthropological research (Wikipedia).
Holocaust, World War II, Tokyo Holocaust Education Resource Center "Inside Hana's Suitcase" The documentary Inside Hana’s Suitcase, which had its New York premiere on April 18 and is currently running at Quad Cinema in Manhattan, Kew Gardens Cinemas in Queens, and Malverne Cinema 4 on Long Island, follows Ishioka from Tokyo to the Czech Republic in pursuit of Hana’s story. Ishioka would not have done this much research had she not been lent the suitcase. But why was it important for her to have a physical object with which to tell Japanese children about the Holocaust, as opposed to simply telling them the story? “I thought an object could spark their imagination. Especially a suitcase,” says Ishioka via e-mail.

Alice Cunningham Fletcher (1838-1923), born in Cuba during a temporary residence of her American parents on the island. She traveled widely in her early years and eventually settled in the Boston area, where she studied American archeology and ethnology at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University. It was out of intense concern for the welfare and rights of the American Indian that she began her scientific studies of them. Although she was eventually to gain great and well-merited recognition as a scholar, the recommendations in behalf of American Indians that she made in the name of anthropological authority suffered from an uncritical commitment to benevolent philosophies of the nineteenth century. The policy she advocated was based on the assumption that it was both inevitable and desirable for the Indians to be assimilated into white society and for their tribal culture to be rapidly destroyed.
Her parents immigrated to the United States from Calcutta, India and she was born in London, England in 1967. She was then raised in Rhode Island where her father worked as a librarian and her mother as a teacher. Lahiri received a B.A in English Literature at Barnard College, and later received her M.A in English, Creative writing, and Comparative Studies in Literature and the Arts, as well as a Ph.D in Renaissance Studies from Boston University. During her six years at Boston University, Lahiri worked on short stories, nine of which were collected in her debut book, Interpreter of Maladies, published in 1999. The stories are about problems in the lives of Indians or Indian immigrants, with themes such as difficulties in marriage, and the gap between first and second generation United States immigrants.
This paper will discuss the 8 psychosocial theories that Erikson made and will analyze the validity of each of the stages. Erik Erikson was born in 1932 at Frankfurt Germany to Danish parents. Under the direction of Anna Freud, the daughter of the late Sigmund Freud, he began to study psychoanalysis. After spending time traveling around Europe, he moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1933 and filled a position at Harvard Medical School as America’s first child analyst (Sharkey, 1997). In addition to working at Harvard Medical School, he also had a private practice in child psychoanalysis.
