[Mis-]Managing Fisheries On The West Coast Of Ireland In The Nineteenth Century, 2019 Sacred Heart University
[Mis-]Managing Fisheries On The West Coast Of Ireland In The Nineteenth Century, John B. Roney
History Faculty Publications
This study focuses on the cultural heritage of artisan coastal fishing in the west of Ireland in the 19th century. The town and port of Dingle, County Kerry, offers an important case study on the progress of local development and changing British policies. While there was clearly an abundance of fish, the poverty and the lack of capital for improvements in ports, vessels, gear, education, and transportation, left the fishing industry underdeveloped until well after the 1890s. In addition, a growing rift developed between the traditional farmer-fishermen and the new middle-class capitalist companies. After several royal commissions examined the fishing ...
Spanish California Missions: An Economic Success, 2019 Chapman University
Spanish California Missions: An Economic Success, Lynne Doti
Economics Faculty Articles and Research
Starting in 1769, the Spanish established missions in Alta California. A small band of soldiers, Franciscan priests and volunteers walked from Baja California to San Francisco Bay through semi-arid, scarcely populated land stopping occasionally to establish a location for a religious community. Usually two priests, a few soldiers and a few Indians from Baja California settled at the spot. Their only resources for starting an economy were themselves, a few animals and a nearby source of water. They attracted the local Indians to join the community and perform the work necessary to create a strong economy. After only a few ...

Xi Jinping And Confucianism: Legitimacy And A National Moral Identity, 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder
Xi Jinping And Confucianism: Legitimacy And A National Moral Identity, Makenna Zoglmann
Undergraduate Honors Theses
Decades after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) demonized Confucianism as a backwards philosophy, Confucianism has once again become popular in Chinese political culture and society. This paper investigates how the president of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping, is using Confucian rhetoric to legitimize himself and the CCP. The paper explores the Chinese people's search for a national moral identity, the resurgence of Confucianism, and finally examines the speech Xi gave on the 40th Anniversary of the Reforms and Opening-up.
How The “Ploughman Poet” Jumpstarted Highlandism:, 2019 Regis University
How The “Ploughman Poet” Jumpstarted Highlandism:, Allison Ward
All Regis University Theses
Begging the question of how the Scottish society has been reduced and commercialized to the romanticized, Scottish fantasy we see Scotland as today because of a process labeled ‘Highlandism’. The eighteenth-century poet Robert Burns became the focal point because of the impact of his major role in this creation and spread of this Sottish fantasy. Burns used his poetry as a method of delivery to sell nostalgia for a fictional, romantic, and exotic Scotland that had been created from symbols once associated with the Highlands to a now global audience.
Breaking down the historical, economic, and cultural shifts occurring around ...
Breakdown Of Relations: American Expansionism, The Great Plains, And The Arikara People, 1823-1957, 2019 Virginia Commonwealth University
Breakdown Of Relations: American Expansionism, The Great Plains, And The Arikara People, 1823-1957, Stephen R. Aoun
Theses and Dissertations
Arikara people had been adapting their tribal structures to European influences since Europeans first arrived on the northern Plains in the early seventeenth century. Their sedentary lifestyle, focused on agriculture and hunting, increasingly included trade with French, British, and American trappers by the seventeenth century. The goods procured from European traders, such as firearms and other metallurgical works, began to upset the balance of geopolitical power on the Plains, setting the stage for the violence and political realignments at the center of this thesis. As my research reveals, by the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition, tensions between the ...
The What If Collection, 2019 Virginia Commonwealth University
The What If Collection, Aisha J. Daniels
Theses and Dissertations
The What If Collection is a visual narrative that confronts white supremacy, the social, economic, and political ideology used to subjugate black civilization via colonial rule and enslavement in history and via structural racism today. Many white people have been socialized into a racial illiteracy that fosters white supremacy. This racial illiteracy fails to realize and understand the destructive effects of Western dominance on the rest of the world, particularly on past and present Africa and her diaspora. In response, utilizing discursive design, the collection constructs a counter-story that depicts a shift in the power structure in which the white ...
Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, 2019 Iowa State University
Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, Brianna R. Burke
Island Road in Louisiana seems to lead to nowhere. An hour and forty minutes southwest of New Orleans, deep in the bayou, Island Road was built on marshlands in 1953, but in the sixty years since, those have melted into the sea. Now hemmed in by water on both sides, for portions of the year Island Road is flooded and impassable, and it dead- ends into the Gulf of Mexico; not much to see and no reason to go out there, or so some folks might think. In fact, many think it is “irresponsible” to live in such a place ...
Buried Before, 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder
Buried Before, Devan Herbert
Undergraduate Honors Theses
Buried Before is a twelve-minute concert dance work which was performed February 7-10, 2019, in the Charlotte York Irey Theatre by Sasha Alcott, Sara Varra, Olivia Hodnett, and Adia Banks. This essay is a roadmap to understanding the piece as well as the research process that accompanied it. The piece challenges the way war stories are told, particularly the themes of glorification, masculinity, and heroism. It centralizes the body in the telling of women’s war stories which provides a level of complexity and abstraction which are not present in linear, traditional war narratives. Throughout both the essay and the ...
Toward A Dynamic View Of Second Language Comprehensibility, 2019 Iowa State University
Toward A Dynamic View Of Second Language Comprehensibility, Charles Nagle, Pavel Trofimovich, Annie Bergeron
World Languages and Cultures Publications
This study took a dynamic approach to second language (L2) comprehensibility, examining how listeners construct comprehensibility profiles for L2 Spanish speakers during the listening task and what features enhance or diminish comprehensibility. Listeners were 24 native Spanish speakers who evaluated 2–5 minute audio clips recorded by three university-level L2 Spanish speakers responding to two prompts. Listeners rated comprehensibility dynamically, using Idiodynamic Software to upgrade or downgrade comprehensibility over the course of the listening task. Dynamic ratings for one audio clip were video-captured for stimulated recall, and listeners were interviewed to understand which aspects of L2 speech were associated with ...

All material is fully documented, and the book includes a complete index and detailed ...
The Icon Formation Of Ruby Bridges Within Hegemonic Memory Of The Civil Rights Movement, 2019 Claremont Colleges
The Icon Formation Of Ruby Bridges Within Hegemonic Memory Of The Civil Rights Movement, Katherine Cashion
Scripps Senior Theses
In 1960, when Ruby Bridges was six-years-old, she desegregated the formerly all white William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, Louisiana. This thesis traces her formation as a Civil Rights icon and how her icon narratives are influenced by, perpetuate, or challenge hegemonic memory of the Civil Rights Movement. The hegemonic narrative situates the Civil Rights Movement as a triumphant moment of the past, and is based upon the belief that it abolished institutionalized racism, leaving us in a world where lingering prejudice is the result of the failings of individuals. Analysis of narratives about Ruby Bridges by Norman Rockwell ...
Uncovering Alice Bag: An Alternative Punk History, 2019 Claremont Colleges
Uncovering Alice Bag: An Alternative Punk History, Emily Macune
Scripps Senior Theses
The intention of this thesis is to provide an alternative counter-narrative to the mainstream histories of punk that center white men. By focusing on the contributions of fem queer and POC punks, I aim to legitimize punk music as a form of resistance against systems of oppression that are oppositional to the commodified forms of mainstream punk. Using Alice Bag, as my central case study as a fem queer punk that is often left out of punk historical narratives, I contextualize her work through feminist, queer, and media studies lenses to bridge the gap between academia and forgotten personal experience.
Consumer Capitalist Christmas: How Participation In Christmas Frames Us As Religious Subjects, 2019 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois
Consumer Capitalist Christmas: How Participation In Christmas Frames Us As Religious Subjects, Shelby Burroughs
Religion: Student Scholarship & Creative Works
Christmas seems to start earlier and earlier every year. It starts with the music that plays on the radio, then retail stores begin to drape their shelves with red and green streamers, followed by Christmas movies running on every other channel. Every December, Christmas feels almost inescapable. The holiday manages to find its way into every facet of public life in the United States. Christians and non-Christians alike find themselves exchanging gifts with friends and loved ones on the 25th of December every year. Christmas is able to be so pervasive because of how unassuming it is. You participate in ...
A Musical Exploration Of 'Yes And...': History And Applications Of Free Musical Improvisation For College Students, 2019 Ouachita Baptist University
A Musical Exploration Of 'Yes And...': History And Applications Of Free Musical Improvisation For College Students, Amy Lytle
As music majors at universities, students often spend hours a day focused on improving their musical skills. They work on advancing on their instruments, further understanding advanced music theory, memorizing entire works for music history exams, improving their artistic interpretation, increasing their precision, and more. They spend so much time focusing on how much they need to improve while not appreciating where they currently are in their skills or the application of those skills.
It does not have to be this way.
I was inspired to further study free improvisation because I learned firsthand how truly freeing it can be ...
Breaking And Remaking The Mason-Dixon Line: Loyalty In Civil War America, 1850-1900, 2019 West Virginia University
Breaking And Remaking The Mason-Dixon Line: Loyalty In Civil War America, 1850-1900, Charles R. Welsko
Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports
Between 1850 and 1900, Americans redefined their interpretation of national identity and loyalty. In the Mid-Atlantic borderland of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia this change is most evident. With the presence of a free state and slave states in close proximity, white and black Americans of the region experienced the tumult of the Civil War Era first hand. While the boundary between freedom and slavery served as an antebellum battleground over slavery, during the war, the whole region bore witness to divisions between the Union and Confederacy as well as to define what loyalty and nation meant. By exploring ...
The Effects Of Neoliberalism And Globalization On Thailand's Sex Industry, 2019 University of Redlands
The Effects Of Neoliberalism And Globalization On Thailand's Sex Industry, Kate Emmons
Undergraduate Honors Theses
Sex work is a common profession across the globe. In Thailand, the work has been incorporated into society since the early development of the country. With the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis and 2008 Global Financial Crisis came the implementation of neoliberal policies, stipulated by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. These changes along with increased migration and competition caused by globalization have disproportionally effected women, leading many of them to seek employment in the sex industry. This research aims to break down the ways neoliberalism and globalization have affected the sex industry in Thailand by assessing policies, and nongovernmental ...
Laughing Out Loud: American Indian Comedy As A Force For Social Change, 2019 Georgia Southern University
Laughing Out Loud: American Indian Comedy As A Force For Social Change, Jacob M. Ward
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Activism entails not only individuals overtly campaigning for changes in public spheres, but in other ways and strategies as well. One of these other avenues is the use of political satire and humor. Comedy publicizes frustrations of American issues, just as sit-ins, walk-outs, or marches do. For the most part, scholars fail to address the importance of humor. This work researches not only the comedic works of Charlie Hill, the 1491s, and other American Indian comedians, but also how their craft possibly alters stances and opinions. These comedians have a voice, and, therefore, deserve examination. This work shows the influence ...
