1. HSIEH, CHENG-FENG. Beyond Traditional Perspective: The Solo Piano Waltz in the Twentieth Century.

Degree: DMA, College-Conservatory of Music : Piano, 2008, University of Cincinnati

Born as a simple peasant dance in the Austrian countryside, the waltz has grown into a nearly ubiquitous feature of classical and popular music. In the realm of solo piano music alone, the waltz has served as a common subject for experimentation and the expression of personal artistic idioms. If the waltz seemed quaint at the twilight of the nineteenth century, composers took little notice. The solo piano waltz grew significantly after the Romantic period, experiencing a myriad of styles, transformations, andexploitations by some of the most brilliant composers of the modern and postmodern periods. To be sure, the recession of Romanticism left the solo piano waltz vulnerable to great change. Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales, Satie’s Les Trois Valses distinguées du précieux dégoûté, and Ravel’s La Valse each recall the “good old days” of the waltz in grand nineteenth century fashion, but introduce startling changes in form and harmony. Between 1920 and 1950, the piano waltz splits into two paths - the traditional route, led by Gershwin’s Two Waltzes in C, Poulenc’s Valse-Improvisation sur le nom de BACH, Copland’s “Saturday-Night Waltz” from his ballet Rodeo, and Ross Lee Finney’s Nostalgic Waltzes - and the esoteric route, reflected in Schoenberg’s Waltzer in Five Piano Pieces, which employs the composer’s twelve-tone method. From 1950 to 1980, the eclecticism of the postmodern era splintered the piano waltz even further. Alwyn’s Fantasy - Waltzes calls upon the style of nineteenth century, but the collection Waltzes by 25 Contemporary Composers insists upon more contemporary techniques. After 1980, Pütz’s Waltzing the Blues: 3 Jazz Waltzes completely absorbs the jazz idiom, but Gould’s Ghost Waltzes and Helps’ Shall We Dance fuse both the new and the old. This document serves not as an exhaustive study of any one piece, but as a detailed chronicle of one of the most colorful genres in recent music literature. Henceforth, this paper invites the interested reader to step outside the “quaint” piano waltzes of Chopin and Tchaikovsky, and take a journey through the twentieth-century, where the waltz is more alive than at any point in its history. Advisors/Committee Members: Rivers, Sandra (Committee Chair).

University of Notre Dame

2. Timothy Byron Webster. Natural Law, Religion, and the Political Common Good</h1>.

Degree: PhD, Political Science, 2016, University of Notre Dame

A strand of liberal thought called liberal egalitarianism wants to accommodate religious commitments on an equal basis with nonreligious or secular commitments. However, in accommodating religion, liberal egalitarians do not want to recognize religious commitments or activities qua religious as uniquely deserving of protection or accommodation. This dissertation disputes the central contention of liberal egalitarians that religion is not a unique activity. Drawing on Thomas Aquinas and the New Natural Law Theory, this dissertation argues that religion is an aspect of human flourishing that reason can grasp, and that such an understanding provides the most reasonable grounds for religious freedom. Chapter one is an introduction and overview of the project. Chapter two shows how liberal egalitarian theories are insufficiently protective of religious freedom because of internal inconsistencies or shortcomings. Chapter three examines Aquinas’s understanding of religion as a natural virtue and his failure to argue for a robust sphere of religious freedom. Chapter four lays out the principles of the New Natural Law Theory. Chapter five examines the New Natural Law Theory’s understanding of religion as a basic good in depth and derives principles of action thereof. Chapter six discusses the nature and extent of religious exemptions and the relationship of the state to religious truth from the perspective of both the New Natural Law Theory and liberal egalitarian theories. Chapter seven concludes the dissertation by pointing out how the New Natural Law Theory’s understanding of religion can be developed and likely challenges liberal democratic states will face in the future as religious diversity increases.

3. Noel, Bradley Truman. Pentecostal and postmodern hermeneutics: comparisons and contemporary impact .

Degree: 2009, University of South Africa

The focus of this practical theological study is Pentecostalism, and the relationship between the hermeneutics of Pentecostalism and Postmodernism. Through a literary search, we observe the points of congruency between the hermeneutics of early Pentecostals and the key tenets of Postmodernism. We note the unprecedented acceptance of Pentecostal scholars into the larger theological world and question whether this is a result of the increased Modernization of Pentecostal hermeneutics. The Postmodern world of youth is explored, and we observe their tremendous openness to spirituality. This thesis will show that Pentecostals may contribute to the Christian world a Pentecostal hermeneutic that will speak a relevant message to generations of youth. Chapters two and three examine the convergent viewpoints of Pentecostalism with Postmodernity, in terms of rationalism, narratives, and the place of experience in life and theology. Chapter four highlights the hermeneutical debate between Gordon D. Fee and his Pentecostal responders, noting the Modern approach in the principles debated. Chapter five seeks to provide interaction with a giant of theology seldom engaged by Pentecostals - Rudolf Bultmann - and his modern followers, and explores the world of Postmodern youth. Chapter six explores the work of Kenneth Archer, who has proposed a specific Pentecostal hermeneutical approach, and chapter seven discusses the role of the Holy Spirit in hermeneutics, including whether Pentecostal experience may be considered an ”edge” in hermeneutics. Chapter eight summarizes the findings of this study. Advisors/Committee Members: Meyer, R.A. (Dr.) (advisor), Theron, J.P.J. (Dr.) (advisor).
