Women in the Canterbury Tales: Between a Saint and a Sinner
Mihaela Juričan, 2011, diplomsko delo

Opis: The diploma thesis compares the life and the status of women in the late medieval society with some of the female characters from the Canterbury Tales. The author of these Tales is Geoffrey Chaucer who is often named the Father of English Poetry. Beside his life and work this diploma thesis also presents his attitude to women in his family and his view on medieval women in general. Chaucer’s view on women varied from the generally accepted opinion imposed by the ecclesiastic and didactic literature. The mentality and the values of the late medieval society were quite different from the modern society. That is why it is difficult to describe and explain the view of the world in the fourteenth century from the modern viewpoint. The diploma thesis mentions the political, religious, and social changes that occurred in the fourteenth century England. The most important events and occurrences that led England to the riots but also to the formation of national awareness are mentioned. This diploma thesis focuses on the perception of women in the late medieval society which was dominated by men. The depictions of women in the late medieval literature were often much generalized as they were presented as sinful Eves or saint Marys. Chaucer avoided this traditional perception by creating more complex female characters. The role of his female characters was more important than it was usually assigned to female characters in the late medieval literature.

Mad or Misunderstood – Representations of Madness in British Drama
Irena Slapar, 2016, magistrsko delo

Opis: Madness has always fascinated as well as frightened people, which is why its mysterious and indefinite essence has served as an inexhaustible source of inspiration to authors in novels, poetry and plays, and has personified itself in the works of artists. Madness has been an important theme in drama, since it mystified and excited the writers of tragedies as long ago as in Ancient Greece, whereas it entered the British world of drama with the same intensity at the time of its greatest creativity and has remained there ever since. Although it has subsided for a while in certain periods of time, it has never completely diminished into oblivion. Towards the end of the 20th century it resurfaced and regained its importance as an indispensable way of expression of the younger generation of playwrights, which shocked audience and critics alike. The thesis analyses different manifestations of alleged madness and examines how the understanding of irrational behaviour changed through centuries. It questions if diagnosis of the same mental disturbance differed whether the patient was a woman or a man. It further on analyses what kind of treatment was considered to be the most appropriate in a certain time and age. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the representations of (alleged) female madness in the plays of Sarah Daniels.

Emigration gothic
Michelle Gadpaille, 2006, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Ellen Ross (l816?-1892) emigrated from Scotland to Montreal at mid-century and wrote two Gothic novels, in one of which - Violet Keith, An Autobiography (1868) - she used the Canadian setting as a fantastic Gothic locale in which to explore areas of social and sexual transgression. Drawing on earlier traditions of European Gothic, including Sir Walter Scott's mythologized Scottish landscape, and on an emerging North American genre of convent exposes, Ross's writing accommodates female protest, distances it from reality and allows its dissipation in conventional denouements. If female Gothic can be read as an analogue of realistic women's problems, then perhaps this analogy can be extended to encompass emigration and immigrant life. The paper analyzes Ross's motifs of loss, imprisonment, solitude, surveillance and deliverance and considers the possibility that Gothic motifs in her work both conceal and express features of the immigrant's psychic battle with the transition to the New World.

Reaction to crisis in gothic romance
Tadej Braček, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Gothic romances were primarily women's domain. This is proven by the fact that from the end of the eighteenth century to the beginning of the nineteenth century more than fifty female authors wrote Gothic romances. In the first part the paper depicts the emergence of romances, clarifies the notion of the Gothic and explains the theory of Gothic romances. The second part focuses on Ann Radcliffe's first novel, The Castles of Athlin and Dunbayne. This section analyses in what way men and women react to crises. It concludes that reactions are primarily based not on sex but on the benevolence and malevolence of literary characters. The former react with higher intensity on the physical level (passing out, becoming ill) and the latter react vehemently in emotional sense towards their rivals. The originality of the article lies in the systematic analysis of characters' responses to crisis and in the study of atypical features of this Gothic novel.

Die Authentizität in Maja Haderlaps Roman Engel des Vergessens
Miša Glišič, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: This article analyses the authenticity of memories in the second half of the 20th century in Carinthia. The segmentation of historical authenticity is visible in the historical reminiscence of traumatic historical events in relation to social interaction. The combination of social, political und cultural elements affects the divergent experience of individuals in determinated environment. The complexity of the novel is seen in the inner feelings, which characterization relates to emotions and the subconscious of the population. The article focuses on the female perspective as well as on the role of women in the story. The author proves with her experience of unconsciously the unsolved problematic of her own literalizing of history. The personality of the writer is shown in the examples of double literary, personal and lingual identity.

Role of livestock husbandry on rural transformation in North India
Asif Iqubal, 2010, pregledni znanstveni članek

Opis: Livestock husbandry is an important source of economic activity in the agricultural sector contributing a major portion of GDP to India and improving the socio-economic conditions for people in general and rural people in particular. Livestock husbandry has been practiced, usually in rural areas, since ancient times. The increasing urbanization of the growing popula- tion and the changing food habits of people has enhanced the demand of livestock products worldwide. Thus, the world’s livestock sector is growing at an unprecedented rate in developing countries. India is one developing country that shares the largest number of livestock and has a top position in milk production in the world. The livestock in India with 185 million cattle and 98 million buffaloes possesses 20% of the world’s bovine and 14% of the world's cattle population. A micro level geographical area known as Aligarh district in north India has been selected for study. The data regarding various aspects of livestock husbandry at the grass roots level is not available in recorded form. 12 villages from the district have been selected for field survey to generate data regarding the socio economic transformation of rural people in the study region. The study revealed that livestock husbandry shows upward dynamism in terms of numbers. A positive growth of 7.5% livestock as a whole has been observed through the data analysis of two points of time i.e. 1993 and 2003. 83% of the workforce of households surveyed in the rural areas is found to be involved directly or indirectly in livestock husbandry, and it is practiced by landless, marginal and small farmers particularly.

The Influence of Usernames on the Perception of Gender in Online Communication
Alen Vugrinec, 2018, magistrsko delo

Opis: The aims of this master´s thesis are to determine how certain usernames influence the perception of gender on online communication and to identify possible differences between the language of men and women used in online communication in the form of a forum. The theoretical part discusses at first the internet in general; its origins, how communication came to be on it, the characteristics of internet language and differences between communication in real-life and online. Then we turn our attention to differences between the language of men and women, which can occur in either face-to-face (or written) communication or in online communication in general. The empirical part focuses on the experiment conducted for the purpose of this thesis. This part of the thesis contains the methods of the experiment, the details of it, the analysis of the communication happening on the forum and the analysis of the questionnaires given to the participants of the experiment. This is followed by the discussion of the findings/results and the concluding thoughts. The findings of the study confirm all the hypotheses set in the thesis, i.e.: Hypothesis 1: the majority of the participants will not be able to guess correctly the gender of other participants in conversations with made-up usernames (Discussion 2). Hypothesis 2: there will be differences between the language of men and women in both types of conversations regardless of the type of username used. Hypothesis 3: participants regardless of gender will add more contributions to the forum in conversations with made-up usernames (Discussion 2) because of the anonymity.
Ključne besede: internet, online communication, language, username(s), difference, influence, experiment, men´s and women´s language, gender.

Responsibilities of pregnant women for on going pregnancy
Ratko Matijević, Katja Erjavec, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: There are numerous factors known to affect the course of pregnancy and adversely impact perinatal mortality and morbidity. Some of them are avoidable and some are not. Avoidable factors can be either under responsibility of medical staff, health care systems and communities; or under responsibility of pregnant women. By modifying and changing their lifestyle, pregnant women can influence some avoidable factors and improve their pregnancy outcome. However, by ignoring them, they can cause potential damage to themselves and to their unborn child. There is no well defined responsibility for women concerning ways they influence their pregnancy outcome; they have a full right to make decisions about themselves and their unborn children, whether right or wrong. Good communication, education and understanding are essential when dealing with these issues.
