   Abstract = {© Cambridge University Press 2016. This study examines
             heritage speakers' knowledge of Standard Arabic (SA) and
             compares their patterns of SA acquisition to those of
             learners of SA as second/foreign language (L2). In addition,
             the study examines the influence of previously acquired
             language varieties, including Colloquial Arabic (QA), on SA
             acquisition.1 To this end, the study compares 35 heritage
             speakers, 28 L2 learners, and 16 controls with respect to
             sentential negation, an area where SA and QA diverge
             significantly. The participants completed five oral tasks
             targeting negation of eight different clause types. The
             findings showed that L2 learners and heritage speakers
             performed comparably, encountered similar difficulties, and
             produced similar patterns of errors. However, whereas L2
             learners did not display clear transfer effects from L1
             (English), heritage speakers showed both positive and
             negative influence of L1 (QA). The results shed light on the
             dynamics of the interaction between the spoken heritage
             languages and their written standard counterparts with
             specific focus on diglossic contexts.},

   Abstract = {<jats:p>This article charts Beyoncé’s multimedia
             intervention into the politics of the Trump presidency as
             she draws on the work of black Muslim and Latinx artists to
             challenge white monopolies on representation in the
             Breitbart era. It specifically looks at the political
             interventions Beyoncé staged through collaborations with
             Warsan Shire, a British poet born in Kenya to Somali
             parents; Awol Erizku, an Ethiopian-born American artist
             raised in the Bronx; and Daniela Vesco, a Costa Rican
             photographer. This collective of artists forge a black
             aesthetics at a heightened level of visibility, using new
             performative technologies to intervene in the politics of
             #BlackLivesMatter, crackdowns on Muslim and Latinx refugees
             and immigrants, the proposed wall with Mexico, and neo-Nazi
             mobilization. Focusing on Beyoncé’s pregnancy
             announcement, the article explores the politics of
             representation of black bodies and black lives, as she
             transforms the trope of suffering black mothers and their
             martyred black youth into a celebration of black motherhood
             and the pregnant body. These images are consciously rooted
             in a genealogy of black women’s representations of black
             women’s bodies. Despite the political power of these
             interventions, accusations were leveled at Beyoncé of
             cultural appropriation and exploitation of suffering by the
             neoliberal entertainment machine. By mentoring these
             artists, Beyoncé sought to convey the fertility of creative
             foment across borders and power hierarchies, even if her
             star power ultimately eclipsed the message as well as the
             marginalized artist that she sought to highlight.</jats:p>},

   Abstract = {© 2019 Journal of Religious Ethics, Inc. This essay defines
             ethical resonance through an ethnographic interlude that
             paves the way for a broader theorization of the concept. It
             begins by contextually recounting the story of an individual
             who had stayed at Sevagram, Mahatma Gandhi’s last ashram
             in 1944, shadowing Gandhi for some 20 days. The young
             man’s brief meeting with Gandhi in which Gandhi uttered
             only one sentence transformed him for his lifetime. I
             reflect on the experience and its narrative qualities to
             explore the broader question of why one is moved, and moved
             enough to be altered. I propose that the theorization of
             resonance in modern physics, in phenomenology, and in
             11th-century Sanskrit poetics is productive for
             understanding the subjective and the trans-subjective
             elements that underlie ethical persuasion. I argue that the
             idea of resonance helps bridge the affective and the
             aesthetic in moral self-formation that occurs in everyday
