Architecture Of The San Francisco Bay Area: The Influence Of The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, Orion Weinstein 2018 Dominican University of California

Architecture Of The San Francisco Bay Area: The Influence Of The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, Orion Weinstein

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Just hours after the 1906 Earthquake, Jack London arrived in San Francisco and wrote an article for Collier's Magazine, “The Story of an Eyewitness.” He famously reported, “San Francisco is gone...Nothing remains of it but memories.” The earthquake and subsequent fire left most of San Francisco in ruins; commercial buildings, humble residences and grand estates destroyed. The City was a blank slate and in the process of rebuilding, there was the opportunity to utilize new architectural styles as well as create new architecture; significantly, the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 (PPIE) provided the impetus as well as the ...

L'ImpéRatrice EugéNie Et L’ImpéRatrice Augusta-Victoria, Michèle C. Magnin, Marguerite Durand

Tome 1

Texte consacré à la dernière impératrice des Français et à la dernière impératrice des Allemands, épouse de Guillaume II, mortes toutes deux en 1921. Marguerite Durand y réfute les « légendes » qui ont donné d’elles une fausse image. La journaliste était très attachée à la figure de l’impératrice Eugénie, qu’elle considérait comme l’une des premières féministes et pour laquelle elle lança l’initiative d’un musée à Pierrefonds.

Marguerite Durand évoque dans ce texte Edouard Drumont et son journal antisémite La libre parole, les causes de l’antisémitisme de la fin du 19e siècle, l’affaire Dreyfus, en particulier du point de vue de la journaliste Séverine, qui assista avec la directrice de La Fronde au procès en révision à Rennes en 1899. Le texte porte aussi sur l’interview que Séverine fit du pape Léon XIII en 1892, « restée célèbre dans les annales du journalisme ».

Selected Highlights In American Soil Science History From The 1980s To The Mid-2010s, Eric C. Brevik, Jeffrey A. Homburg, Bradley A. Miller, Thomas E. Fenton, James A. Doolittle, Samuel J. Indorante 2018 Dickinson State University

Selected Highlights In American Soil Science History From The 1980s To The Mid-2010s, Eric C. Brevik, Jeffrey A. Homburg, Bradley A. Miller, Thomas E. Fenton, James A. Doolittle, Samuel J. Indorante

Bradley A. Miller

The beginning of the 20th century through the 1970s were good times for soil science in the USA, with relatively strong funding and overall growth in the profession. However, the soil science discipline in the USA hit hard times in the 1980s and 1990s. Federal funding for soil survey work began to decline as did student numbers in university programs and membership in the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA). Despite this, there were still many positive advances within soil science in the USA during these two decades. There was an increased use of geophysical instrumentation, remote sensing, geographic information ...


The Winter Olympics Approach, Richard C. Crepeau 2018 University of Central Florida

The Winter Olympics Approach, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

With the approach of the 2018 Winter Olympics, one can only wonder what might happen. The threats of war on the Korean Peninsula, the threat to the games posed by the quiet diplomacy of the President of the United States, the possibility that Russia was to be excluded from the games and now will be only partially excluded, the decision by Gary Bettman and the National Hockey League to keep NHL players out of the games, all endangered or diminished the games in their own way.


Mother Jones: Ireland To North America To Ireland, Elliot Gorn 2018 Loyola University Chicago

Mother Jones: Ireland To North America To Ireland, Elliot Gorn

Elliot Gorn

Although we don't hear her name so often anymore, Mother Jones was one of the great figures of the early twentieth century. She and her family were refugees from the Famine, and I want to argue here that her early life in Ireland, Canada, and the United States molded her, made her the great crusader for social justice and tribune of the working class that she became as an old woman. "Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose," Kris Kristofferson has written, words that well describe the life of Mother Jones.


John Dewey: His Role In Public Scholarship To Educate For Peace, Audrey Cohan Ed.D., Charles F. Howlett Ph.D. 2018 Molloy College

John Dewey: His Role In Public Scholarship To Educate For Peace, Audrey Cohan Ed.D., Charles F. Howlett Ph.D.

Audrey Cohan

As 2016 is the centennial of Dewey's most famous work, Democracy and Education (1916), it is important to consider Dewey's role in public scholarship to educate for peace. Critical to an in-depth understanding of Dewey is recognition that the early twentieth century marked a transformational period in his views about war and peace. This paper addressed Dewey’s less known political and social ideas during the rise of the “modern” American peace movement. In addition, Dewey’s views of the role of education in a globalizing world are discussed. The research presented directly reflects global conflicts following World ...

Pulse - A Consultation, Barry J. Mauer 2018 University of Central Florida

Pulse - A Consultation, Barry J. Mauer

Barry Mauer

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 53 at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. We may never know or understand what was in Mateen’s mind, but we can situate his attack within the history of eliminationism in America. Islamist terrorism is just part of a larger phenomenon: right wing eliminationism. But despite centuries of right wing eliminationist words and deeds in the U.S., there is little or no mainstream recognition of the phenomenon. Instead, we are treated to more denial, more distraction, more obfuscation. Until we look this problem squarely in the face ...

Frankenstein And “The Labours Of Men Of Genius”: Science And Medical Ethics In The Early 19th Century, Allison Lemley 2018 Grand Valley State University

Frankenstein And “The Labours Of Men Of Genius”: Science And Medical Ethics In The Early 19th Century, Allison Lemley

Grand Valley Journal of History

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, first published in 1818, used a sprawling network of allusions to contemporary literary and scientific works, which strongly reflected Romantic scientific and literary ideology. The robust connections between Romantic artistic and scientific circles included personal and professional relationships, scientists writing literary works, and authors discussing scientific advances. The closely linked scientific and artistic community helped define science and the nature of life in the new era. Medical historians have not fully discussed the debate concerning medical ethics in this period, detailing earlier Enlightenment medical ethics and later Romantic medical developments, which more closely resemble modern scientific ...
