Reinterpreting Yajña as Vedic Sacrifice

Reinterpreting Yajña as Vedic Sacrifice

Date: 2011
Creator: Jain, Pankaj
Description: This paper is about reinterpreting yajna as Vedic sacrifice. Vedic rituals, yajnas, were one of the most important socio-religious activities in Vedic India. In this article, the author endeavors to problematize the term "sacrifice," which is often used to translate the word yajna in Indological writings. Although Monier-Williams (MW) dictionary defines yajnas as - "worship, devotion, prayer, praise; act of worship or devotion, offering, oblation, sacrifice (the former meanings prevailing in Veda, the latter in post-Vedic literature)", some of the primary meanings of the word yajna seem to have been sidelined with the scholarly emphasis on "sacrifice" as the chief interpretation. Several Vedicists have already expressed their disapprovals with equating yajna with sacrifice.

[Review] Habits of the Heartland: Small-Town Life in Modern America

[Review] Habits of the Heartland: Small-Town Life in Modern America

Date: January 2011
Creator: Ignatow, Gabriel
Description: This article reviews the book Habits of the Heartland: Small-Town Life in Modern America by Lyn C. MacGregor. Based on Lyn C. MacGregor's dissertation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Habits of the Heartland is an ethnographic study of Viroqua, a small town approximately 4,000 residents in southwestern Wisconsin. MacGregor's two years living in Viroqua was time well spent: she collected a great deal of ethnographic and interview data, and her arguments regarding the town's social divisions are generally convincing and well supported as a result. MacGregor comes across as a trustworthy guide to Viroqua, and the book is well written and genuinely edifying.
