The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, JEANNE GILLESPIE 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, Jeanne Gillespie

JEANNE GILLESPIE

From the early fifteenth century to the end of the eighteenth century, the Spanish colonial process involved the settling of vast tracks of land. From their first colonial experiment in the Canary Islands in 1402, the Spanish administration learned that it was sometimes more effective to import assimilated settlers from already established colonial possessions than to attempt massive conversion and cultural assimilation. To shore up the vast spaces of the northern Gulf Coast, particularly "West Florida" and eastern Texas, the Spanish governors sent for colonists including groups of Canary Islanders who settled outposts along the Red River, as well as ...

Gender & Leadership: Do Human Resource Policies And Practices Affect A Woman’S Ascent In Organizations?, Arielle Langlais 2010 Bryant University

Gender & Leadership: Do Human Resource Policies And Practices Affect A Woman’S Ascent In Organizations?, Arielle Langlais

Honors Projects in Management

As more women began assuming leadership roles in organization, researchers established a number of consistencies in the promotion of women into the upper ranks of an organization. Jonsen, Maznevski, and Schneider have taken a look at these differences in their study, “Gender Differences in Leadership: Believing is Seeing.” In this study they examine three ways in which organizations view women and the Human Resource policies and programs that support these views. Based on this and other research, I conducted a study in hopes of assessing the validity and existence of these views as they are evident in Southern New England ...


Feminist Communities Online: What It Means To Be A Jezebel, Katelyn M. Wazny 2010 University of Iowa

Feminist Communities Online: What It Means To Be A Jezebel, Katelyn M. Wazny

B Sides

This paper examines what it means to identify as a feminist in Western society and whether one can be a feminist while not explicitly stating this aspect of identity. The paper seeks to answer the age-old question (albeit modified slightly,) if it looks like feminist website, and sounds like a feminist website, is it a feminist website? There is much discussion and disagreement over what it means to be a feminist, with different conclusions being drawn by first-, second-, and third-generation members of the movement. Jezebel does not purport to be a feminist website. There is no mention of feminism ...

Don Juan In Pre-Brechtian Hell, Or Shaw The Unexpected Terrorist, Sarah Flocken 2010 Occidental College

Don Juan In Pre-Brechtian Hell, Or Shaw The Unexpected Terrorist, Sarah Flocken

ECLS Student Scholarship

According to nineteenth and twentieth-century playwright George Bernard Shaw, a theatergoer with an appetite for “true comedy” in the late Victorian era was hard-pressed to find any at all. Shaw defines true comedy as "the fine art of disillusionment"; one found, instead, in the late-Victorian comedy, a lot of "harmless laughter," or frothy escapism without a lot of deeper meaning(Meisel 122-123). Shaw's work, consisting of over sixty plays, is unusual because it attained much commercial success as it shattered Victorian theatrical tradition; a prime of this type of work is found in the "Don Juan in Hell" episode ...
