Paul L. Errington: His Life And Work, Matthew Sivils
Trapper, ecologist, and nature writer Paul Errington dedicated his life to the understanding and preservation of wetland environments and to the rich diversity of wildlife that calls tl1em home. Through his technical research as well as in his popular writing, Errington challenged us to change the way we think about and value marshlands. He was one of tl1e most innovative, forward-thinking, and influential ecologists of his day, and his lifetime of exploring and working in midwestern glacial marshes culminated in his natural history classic, Of Men and Marshes.
Magic: A Beginner's Guide (Review), 2012 Iowa State University
Magic: A Beginner's Guide (Review), Michael D. Bailey
Surveys of the history of magic (and of witchcraft, although this item is decidedly not one of the latter) are thick on the ground, so with each new book, one can fairly ask what new or different elements it offers. The greatest strength of this book is its conceptual breadth. Beyond the standard medieval and early modern history of European magic and its repression, it offers (relatively) lengthy treatment of magic in post-Enlightenment Europe, including coverage of two topics almost never found in more "standard" surveys—stage magic and the modern academic treatment of magic. Covering so much ground in ...
Pravda Told The Truth: Abm In The Soviet Press And Us-Russian Relations, 1966-1972, 2012 Wayne State University
Pravda Told The Truth: Abm In The Soviet Press And Us-Russian Relations, 1966-1972, Ben Tigay
Wayne State University Theses
The destabilizing nature of anti-ballistic missile (ABM) systems made it incumbent upon the United States and the Soviet Union to meet and diffuse tensions. Before ABM negotiations began in 1969, Pravda and Izvestiia established a clear public narrative on the topic. According to this narrative, the Soviet Union adhered to its Leninist Foreign Policy and struggled for peace against the warmongering, divided United States. During negotiations, Soviet diplomats used the same language as the newspapers. They asserted that the Soviet Union wanted peaceful coexistence with the United States, in accordance with its Leninist Foreign Policy. They also stressed the need ...
Fear Of Forgetting: How Societies Deal With Genocide, 2012 Claremont McKenna College
Fear Of Forgetting: How Societies Deal With Genocide, Emily O. S. Gelber
CMC Senior Theses
This thesis discusses how certain societies (Germany, Israel, and Argentina) that have been involved in two documented cases of genocide in the 20th Century -- one that was the source for and falls within the United Nations Treaty definition of genocide (the Holocaust), and one that does not (the Dirty War in Argentina) --have dealt with these events in their recent past. In dealing with these issues, the thesis employs the analysis of genocide developed by the Argentine scholar, Daniel Feierstein, who has proposed that all genocides progress through a series of steps that first create what he calls a ...
Binding Ochre To Theory, 2012 Pomona College
Binding Ochre To Theory, Simone E. Nibbs
Pomona Senior Theses
Widely found throughout the archaeological and artistic records in capacities ranging from burial contexts to early evidence of artistic expression, red ochre has been studied in archaeological and art conservationist communities for decades. Despite this, literature discussing binders is disparate and often absent from accessible arenas. Red ochre is important historically because its use can be used to help further the understanding of early humans, their predecessors, and their cognitive capabilities. However, there is not much written speculation on the processes involved in binder selection, collection, and processing. Based on the idea of these three activities associated with binders, I ...
Long May They Run, 2012 Maine Sea Grant
Long May They Run, Catherine V. Schmitt
Maine Sea Grant Publications
Long May They Run, an article in Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Magazine about the history and culture of the Maine sardine industry. In 2010, the "Year of the Sardine" and the closure of the Stinson sardine plant, the last in the United States, prompted an exploration of why writers, painters, and other artists are so drawn to this humble fish that once supported so many of Maine's coastal communities.
In 2010, the Stinson Sardine Cannery in Prospect Harbor, Maine, the last sardine cannery in the United States, closed. As historians and photographers rushed in to document the loss, poets ...
The Effects Of Perceived And Actual Distance And Isolation On Australian Ballet Pedagogy 1851-2011, 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder
The Effects Of Perceived And Actual Distance And Isolation On Australian Ballet Pedagogy 1851-2011, Stephanie Ann Tuley
Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations
This thesis explores the relationship between historical developments in Australian ballet pedagogy and conceptions of real and perceived isolation and distance from the West. For 160 years, Australian ballet pedagogues and students have reacted to, constructed, and rejected the importance of the geographical and aesthetic distance between two antipodean points on Earth, one in Australia and the other in England. Isolated from the "Mother Country," British-Australians have simultaneously sought "Britishness" and "Australianness" in their decision to undertake a study of ballet, and in so doing they have embodied complex notions of their postcolonial identities. These identities are explored through an ...
The Process Of Colonial Adaptation: English Responses To The 1692 Earthquake At Port Royal, Jamaica, 2012 Eastern Kentucky University
The Process Of Colonial Adaptation: English Responses To The 1692 Earthquake At Port Royal, Jamaica, Julie Yates Matlock
Online Theses and Dissertations
This research investigates how colonists adapted to their new tropical environment after a destructive earthquake occurred in Jamaica on June 7, 1692. This earthquake killed approximately two thousand people and destroyed half of the bustling harbor town of Port Royal. The earthquake dramatically changed the landscape of England's most successful Caribbean town and affected the colonists.
Historian Richard Dunn contended that colonists did not adapt to their tropical environment for at least a century after first inhabiting the Caribbean. This study argues against Dunn's theory in that the earthquake served as a catalyst in accelerating the colonists' rate ...

Reflection, 2011 University of Central Florida
Reflection, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
As I prepare to leave England and return to Florida and as the end of the year approaches, I have thought about writing an end of the year summary piece. Thinking about that I decided that what I only would reflect upon the last six or seven weeks of this year, weeks that have turned out to be most remarkable in content and emblematic of the past year.
Black Policemen In Jim Crow New Orleans, 2011 University of New Orleans
Black Policemen In Jim Crow New Orleans, Vanessa Flores-Robert
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
Although historians have done in-‐depth researched on Black police in the South, before the Civil War and during Reconstruction, they seldom assess black policemen’s role in New Orleans between the Battle of Liberty Place and 1913. The men discussed here argue that despite the hardening racial attitudes in Post-‐ Reconstruction South, in New Orleans opportunity still existed for Blacks to serve in positions of authority, perhaps a heritage of the city’s earlier tri-‐partite racial order. The information obtained from primary sources such as police manuals, beat books, and newspapers, counters the widely held belief that African ...
Tunnel Vision: “Invisible” Highways And Boston’S “Big Dig” In The Age Of Privatization, 2011 Johnson & Wales University - Providence
Tunnel Vision: “Invisible” Highways And Boston’S “Big Dig” In The Age Of Privatization, Michael R. Fein
Humanities Department Faculty Publications & Research
While most analyses of late-twentieth-century highway policy suggest a shift toward open system design, bottom-up federalism, and the devolution of transportation governance, the history of Boston’s Central Artery/Tunnel project, informally known as the “Big Dig,” runs counter to this trend. Though the project emerged in the 1970s during a time of unprecedented citizen activism in transportation planning, ultimately the privatization of political power proved to be the Big Dig’s most important legacy for twenty-first-century urban highway projects.

Islands And Swamps: A Comparison Of The Japanese American Internment Experience In Hawaii And Arkansas, 2011 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Islands And Swamps: A Comparison Of The Japanese American Internment Experience In Hawaii And Arkansas, Caleb Kenji Watanabe
Theses and Dissertations
Comparing the Japanese American relocation centers of Arkansas and the camp systems of Hawaii shows that internment was not U\universally detrimental to those held within its confines. Internment in Hawaii was far more severe than it was in Arkansas. This claim is supported by both primary sources, derived mainly from oral interviews, and secondary sources made up of scholarly research that has been conducted on the topic since the events of Japanese American internment occurred. The events of Japanese American Internment in Hawaii and Arkansas are important to remember because they show how far the American government can infringe ...
Thanksgiving, 2011 University of Central Florida
Thanksgiving, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
(As with all American traditions if it happened once or twice it is one. Therefore I present my traditional Thanksgiving piece)
The History of Thanksgiving and of Football both go back into the Middle Ages, and so it may not be so strange that the two would become intertwined in modern America.
Al Davis, 2011 University of Central Florida
Al Davis, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
Over the past weekend news came of the death of Al Davis at the age of 82. It did not make the nightly news in France or the newspapers that I saw. It was not until returning to England on Monday that I, really by chance, stumbled across the news of Davis’ death. I can say I was surprised and somewhat taken aback by the possibility that I might have missed the death of such an important figure in the history of sport in America, particularly the history of the National Football League.
