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 ...

The Moral Politics Of Infancy: Formation Of A Protestant Maternity In England, Ca. 1550-1650, Katharine Etsell 2018 University of Puget Sound

The Moral Politics Of Infancy: Formation Of A Protestant Maternity In England, Ca. 1550-1650, Katharine Etsell

History Theses

This paper studies a shift in conceptions and responsibilities of maternity during the English Reformation, 1550-1650. A focus on interpersonal family life pushes against and complicates traditional views of the Reformation, and a social historiographical lens furthers this agenda and grants perspective to how certain aspects of religious reform changed the rules of motherhood. In seeking to answer questions about the effects of this new religion on women and family life, it becomes evident that there was an obsession with correcting and directing maternity from a wide variety of authorities, including mothers, medical intellectuals, and members of the clergy; what ...

Popular Radicalism In The 1930s: The History Of The Workers' Unemployment Insurance Bill, Chris Wright 2018 Florida International University

Popular Radicalism In The 1930s: The History Of The Workers' Unemployment Insurance Bill, Chris Wright

Class, Race and Corporate Power

Historiography on the Great Depression in the U.S. evinces a lacuna. Despite all the scholarship on political radicalism in this period, one of the most remarkable manifestations of such radicalism has tended to be ignored: namely, the mass popular movement behind the Workers’ Unemployment Insurance Bill. This bill, which the Communist Party wrote in 1930, was introduced in Congress three times, in 1934, ’35, and ’36, as an alternative to the far more conservative Social Security Act. Its socialistic nature ensured that it never had any chance of becoming law, but it also enabled it to become enormously popular ...

Dragon Slayers: Remastering And Redefining The Enduring Struggle, Lexine Lynner 2018 University of Minnesota, Morris

Dragon Slayers: Remastering And Redefining The Enduring Struggle, Lexine Lynner

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

This paper uses a historical perspective to examine the lasting appeal of a particular fairy tale throughout a variety of cultures and time periods. By analyzing the various interpretations of characters within the dragon slayer tale type, we can see the cultural significance of fairy tales throughout history. It examines similarities and differences between three examples of the tale type (Perseus and Andromeda from 8 AD in Greece and Rome, The Saga of Ragnar Lodbrok from the 13th Century in Northern Europe, and The Two Brothers from 1857 in Germany), taking into account the differing perspectives and life experiences ...

Exhibit Introduction, American Association Of University Women

The 1976 Women in New Mexico Exhibit by the American Association of University Women - New Mexico

This show recognizes the significant contributions made by the women of New Mexico throughout the years.

It was apparent from the beginning of this project, by the Albuquerque Branch, American Association of University women, that there were, and are, far too many notable women to document in one exhibit. A careful selection process, based on ordered criteria, progressively narrowed the field, originally composed of more than 150 names.

Names of many New Mexico women were suggested for this unique exhibit. Those selected met these criteria: the individual woman's contribution to her era and to future lifestyles and attitudes; documentation ...
