             This article analyzes recent Iraqi texts, some authorizing
             and others condemning rape as a weapon of war. The focus is
             on Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) perpetrators of
             sexual violence, their Yazidi victims, and two women's
             demands for reparative, restorative justice. Held in sexual
             slavery between 2014 and 2015, Farida Khalaf and 2018 Nobel
             Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad published testimonials that
             detail their experiences. Determined to bring ISIS rapists
             to justice, they narrate the formerly unspeakable crimes
             that ISIS militants committed against them. Adjudicated as a
             crime against humanity at the end of the twentieth century,
             rape as a weapon of war, and especially genocide, no longer
             slips under the radar of international attention. This study
             argues that the Yazidi women's brave decision to speak out
             may help break the millennial silence of rape

   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

   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 = {Decades of SLA research has shed light on complex processes
             and mechanisms of L2 learning, and influenced the
             discussions and directions of L2 teaching. This chapter
             starts with discussion of how L2 development departs from L1
             acquisition, and introduces main interests of SLA research
             as well as divergent theoretical perspectives and approaches
             with respect to the nature of knowledge of language and the
             mechanism by which it develops. Core findings of SLA
             research in general and research studies of L2 Korean, which
             have foregrounded developmental sequences and L1 influence,
             are presented to establish grounds on which to base informed
             discussion and development of L2 Korean education. In this
             vein, debates on implicit and explicit instruction in the
             SLA literature are brought up to foster approaches to L2
             Korean instruction that build on solid and comprehensive
             understanding of L2 development.},
