Tucked In: American Quilts And The Beds They Cover, 1790-1939, Madeleine Roberg

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

This study examines the size of quilts to determine if changes in quilt size are a reflection of changes in bedstead size. To conduct this study 118 quilt publications and 304 furniture publications (including Sears, Roebuck and Co. retail catalogues). were examined for data on quilts and bedsteads. Using these sources the dimensions of 3299 surviving quilts and 1651 bedsteads were examined to determine whether or not changes in quilts sizes correlate with changes in bedstead dimensions. The study found that quilt size (mean area) steadily declined between 1800 and 1910 and increased in the 1920s and 1930s. The most ...

Hexen: Wissen Was Stimmt (Review), Michael D. Bailey

History Publications

In this slim volume, Rita Voltmer undertakes to survey historical European witchcraft. Unlike most other such surveys, which typically develop a basically [End Page 116] chronological narrative that begins with the origins of various elements of witchcraft beliefs (harmful magic, diabolical pact, sabbath, etc.), follows these ideas through the years of major witch hunting (the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries), and concludes with the decline of trials and eventual intellectual discrediting of much of the witch stereotype in the eighteenth century, she instead organizes her survey around a number of myths and misconceptions about historical witchcraft that have persisted in popular ...

The Contrasting Image Of Italian Women Under Fascism In The 1930’S, Jennifer Linda Monti 2011 Syracuse University

The Contrasting Image Of Italian Women Under Fascism In The 1930’S, Jennifer Linda Monti

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

The Fascist regime in Italy lasted twenty years, deeply influencing the Italian population and the Italian culture during that time period. Although Fascism tried to control the public and private life of Italians, it was unsuccessful because of the strong presence of the Catholic Church and because ofItaly’s difficult history prior to unification. What the regime did accomplish, however, was the quasi complete consent of the masses because of the numerous activities and organizations it created for them. A particular group on which Fascism focused was women, understanding how central their role was within the family, and wanting to ...

Education And The Centenary Of Anzac, Peter Dean 2011 University of Notre Dame Australia

Education And The Centenary Of Anzac, Peter Dean

Peter J Dean

In March 2011, the National Commission on the Centenary of Anzac handed over its report to government. The centre piece of its recommendations is a new centre for the study of peace and conflict at ANU. In the lead-up to Ancaz Day 2011, the idea for this new centre received strong criticism by the ‘Editor at Large’ of The Australian Paul Kelly, who argued that this proposal is both ‘ideological... political tokenism’ and a ‘travesty’. Yet, despite Kelly’s views and some inherent problems with the mission of this new centre, it remains an exceptionally important and worthwhile initiative. If ...

Growing Conflict: Agriculture, Innovation, And Immigration In San Luis Obispo County, 1837-1937, Douglas P. Jenzen 2011 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Growing Conflict: Agriculture, Innovation, And Immigration In San Luis Obispo County, 1837-1937, Douglas P. Jenzen

Master's Theses and Project Reports

The history of San Luis Obispo and its surrounding areas is complex. Agriculture, innovation, and immigration have all contributed to the formation of the region. The Spanish, Mexican, and early American periods established the framework successive waves of immigrants had to live within. Native Americans and immigrants from China, Portugal, Switzerland, Japan, the Philippines, and other regions of the United States have all toiled in the fields and contributed to America’s tables at various points throughout county history. Many contingencies determined the treatment of successive waves of immigrants. Growth and development are taking place at exponential rates on the ...

The Development Of Tracking And Its Historical Impact On Minority Students, Deberae Culpepper 2011 Walden University

The Development Of Tracking And Its Historical Impact On Minority Students, Deberae Culpepper

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

In the 1920s, high school students were placed on one of three tracks: high, average, and low. Over the years, vocational education was transformed into a low track assignment for students, often racial minorities, who were perceived as less intelligent. However, the interaction between vocational education and tracking policies and practices remained unclear. Using critical race theory, this study produced an historical analysis of the interaction of these two programs. This included a systematic identification of the originating factors influencing tracking and contemporary tracking policies and practices to understand how tracking affected racial minority students' access to equal educational opportunities ...

Grimoires: A History Of Magic Books (Review), Michael D. Bailey 2011 Iowa State University

Grimoires: A History Of Magic Books (Review), Michael D. Bailey

History Publications

This “history of magic books” might equally well have been subtitled a “history of magic through books.” Not all forms of magic, obviously. Davies is quick to recognize that large areas of magical practice exist entirely in oral culture. Yet one of the most important points he makes in this book is that “grimoires” are not just rare and expensive tomes available only to elite, learned magicians. At least from the time of the printing revolution, magic books were making their way into the hands of simple cunning folk (the subject of a previous book by Davies), and this trend ...
