Art Fronts: Visual Culture And Race Politics In The Mid-Twentieth-Century United States, Erin P. Cohn

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

ART FRONTS: VISUAL CULTURE AND RACE POLITICS IN THE MID-TWENTIETH-CENTURY UNITED STATES Erin Park Cohn Supervisor: Kathy Peiss Art Fronts argues that visual culture played a central and understudied role in the African American freedom struggle in the middle part of the twentieth century. In particular, it traces the political lives and cultural productions of a generation of visual artists, both black and white, who seized on the Depression-era ethos of art as a weapon to forge a particular form of visual activism that agitated for social, political, and economic equality for African Americans. Participating in the proliferation of visual ...

Ele: Una Comunidad De Práctica Donde Se Puede Promover El Diálogo Colaborativo Sobre Temas Interculturales, Maria De Luna Villalón

Multilingual Landscape: A Manifestation Of Linguistic And Social Segregation, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

The term Linguistic Landscape (LL) is used to name the written language used in “public road signs, advertising billboards, street names, place names, commercial shop signs, and public signs on government buildings” (Landry and Bourhis, 1997, 4) of a specific territory with informative or symbolic functions, where objective and subjective ethnolinguistic vitality can be perceived. In the Canadian setting, the presence of one, other, or both of the official languages of the country implies the demographic presence of a particular ethnolinguistic group. However, within a multicultural and varied ethnolinguistic population, the presence or absence of a non-official language seems to ...

From Fishing Weirs To Fancy Baskets: How Changes In Native American Basketry Forms Reflect Changes In The Economic Independence Of Native American Women During Colonization, Heidi J. Pickering

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

Contrary to the absence of Native American women in many reports and journals of early explorers and colonists, Native American women from the Coastal Algonquin and Wasco/Wishram communities played a central role in early trade with Euro-Americans through their traditional socioeconomic status as agricultural and subsistence gatherers and inter/intra-tribal tradeswomen. These native women harvested available natural resources for food, bark, and fiber with which they fed their communities and constructed baskets in standard units of measurement for trade reflecting that pre-contact trade networks and food value systems were well established and highly valued. Through an examination of scholarly ...
