Beyond 'Owls Versus Jobs': A Twenty-Year Retrospective Of The Headwaters Forest Controversy, 2018 University of Southern California
Beyond 'Owls Versus Jobs': A Twenty-Year Retrospective Of The Headwaters Forest Controversy, Jennifer Bernstein
Humboldt Journal of Social Relations
In 1999, the Headwaters Forest Reserve was established in Humboldt County after more than 20 years of community activism, negotiations, and litigation. The ‘last stand’ of unprotected, privately-owned old growth redwood had finally been safeguarded, though many on the North Coast felt that the final deal fell far short of what was needed to protect the watershed’s ecological functioning. This article uses academic and journalistic research, supplemented by oral histories, to make three main points about the North Coast ‘post deal.’ One, forest management practices in the region have evolved to be more consistent with the practices of ecological ...
There Has Never Been A 'Timber War', 2018 Siskiyou Land Conservancy
There Has Never Been A 'Timber War', Greg King
Humboldt Journal of Social Relations
There has never been a 'timber war' in northwestern California, but rather premeditated and ongoing attacks against the forests, and against the people who would protect them. This paper provides a historic examination of redwood logging and protection efforts since 1850.
The Shapers Of Memory: The Theatrics Of Islamic Historiography, 2018 Troy University
The Shapers Of Memory: The Theatrics Of Islamic Historiography, Aaron M. Hagler
This paper employs and describes an experimental methodology of viewing medieval Arabic authors through the lens of stage actor performance theory. In particular, it argues that semi-canonical writings, such as al-Ṭabarī’s History of the Prophets and Kings, become the “script” that later authors, such as Ibn al-Athīr and Ibn Kathīr “perform” as actors. This methodology is novel, and argues that by examining the changes authors made to narratives presented in earlier Arabic texts, we can draw important conclusions about the authors’ opinions of the relative importance of narrative elements, the authors’ literary-narrative strategies for endowing memories with meaning, and ...

Nfl Cheerleaders, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
The National Football League is one of those American entities that likes to think of itself as quintessentially American, embodying the very best of America. It has gone the extra mile to wrap itself in the flag and other markers of American “patriotism,” particularly those that cast a favorable light on the league and cost little or nothing in the way of effort and commitment. Image is the thing, substance is superfluous.
Architecture Of The San Francisco Bay Area: The Influence Of The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, 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 ...

Mahoma En Dos Textos Aljamiados Del Siglo Xvi: La Filosofía Perenne Y El Monomito De Los Moriscos, Emil L. Cruz Fernández
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Besides highlighting the legitimacy of Islam, a religion that was prohibited by the Spanish Inquisition during the 1500’s, Aljamiado-Moriscoliterature has been distinguished by its secrecy, hybridity, ethnocentrism, proselytism, and emphasis on the chaotic reality of the clandestine social group considered to be the "last Moors" of Spain. The Spanish-Muslims or Moriscoswrote this underground literature in the Spanish language, utilizing Arabic characters. The work of historians and “moriscologists” such as L.P. Harvey, Luce López-Baralt, María Teresa Narváez, Vincent Barletta, among others, have examined the practical role and didactic value that —at various levels— these hybrid texts had ...

Exploitation And Social Reproduction In The Japanese Animation Industry, 2018 California State University, Monterey Bay
Exploitation And Social Reproduction In The Japanese Animation Industry, James Garrett
Capstone Projects and Master's Theses
Japanese animation, or ‘Anime’ is considered a unique creative cultural product that has become a global phenomenon, but little attention is paid to its industrial production process, the poor working conditions of domestic animators, and their position within the structure of labor organization in Japan. By analyzing research concerning the current stakeholders in the industry, historical conditions that led to the creation of television broadcast animation, overseas subcontracting networks, and the development of commercial fan cultures through Maurizio Lazzarato’s concept of Immaterial Labor, Michael Hardt’s concept of Affective Labor, Laikwan Pang’s concepts of the intensification of contradictory ...
James Connolly's Bloodstained Vest: Mediating Death And Violence In Commemorative Exhibitions, 2018 Dublin Institute of Technology
James Connolly's Bloodstained Vest: Mediating Death And Violence In Commemorative Exhibitions, Siobhán Doyle
The actions surrounding the display of images and artefacts in museums – collection, conservation, research and exhibition – are bound up with how the past is presented and remembered. These conditions and decisions relating to exhibitions are largely invisible to viewers who are confronted with the apparent completeness of an exhibition display. By conducting a historical and visual analysis of the bloodstained vest of political leader James Connolly, this article uncovers how this artefact has become a relic of historical violence due to the way in which particular aspects of its configuration, form and trajectory have been manipulated in order to elicit ...

"Back To Batoche: Métis History And Memory 1885-2015", Brendan Thomas
Undergraduate Honors Theses
This paper is primarily concerned with historical memory, and how native peoples remember the events of their history. The paper consists of an analysis of the ways in which the Métis, a native group in Western Canada, have articulated a distinctly Métis narrative of history through their efforts to regain control of a place called Batoche, their ancestral capital and the site of their greatest military defeat in 1885 at the hands of the Canadian army. Since 1925, the Canadian government has owned the battlefield site, and attempted to monopolize the interpretation of the site’s history, focusing on the ...

The Winter War: Its Causes And Effects, 2018 Cedarville University
The Winter War: Its Causes And Effects, Ethan D. Beck
Channels: Where Disciplines Meet
The Russo-Finnish War of 1939-1940, also known as the Winter War, forms a curious portion of World War II history that bears further study. Occurring during the “Phony War”—the period of calm following Hitler’s invasion of Poland—the Winter War offers a glimpse into the attitudes of the major powers as the growing necessity of the coming war becomes increasingly clear during 1939 and 1940. Specifically, the Winter War provides insight into Soviet imperialism and its concerns over German aggression, and forms a crucial portion of the German decision to invade Russia in the summer of 1941. Without ...

Interview With Dr. Sergei Khrushchev, February 20, 2009, Kyle Kordon
"On February 20, 2009 I interviewed Dr. Sergei Khrushchev, the son of the late Soviet Premier, Nikita S. Khrushchev. The following is the transcript of that interview. This is the second of two interviews that I conducted with the younger Khrushchev. This interview was conducted after the beginning of the spring semester in 2009 of my senior year. The purpose of this interview was more focused than the first as I had done extensive research on my undergraduate thesis topic. We discussed a number of events that pertained directly to Nikita Khrushchev's 1959 visit to the United States. We ...

"On April 18, 2008 I interviewed Dr. Sergei Khrushchev, the son of the late Soviet Premier, Nikita S. Khrushchev. The following is the transcript of that interview. This was the first of two interviews that I conducted with the younger Khrushchev at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The topic of the interview was very broad.

Fighting On Borrowed Wings: The Combat Experiences Of Americans Serving With French And British Units During The First World War, Kyle Nellesen
During the First World War there were hundreds of Americans who enlisted in the air forces of both France and Great Britain. Through the use of primary documents from these pilots, this paper focuses on the unique experiences of the nearly six hundred men who flew under the command of America’s allies. This includes the discussion of the myths of air combat which envisioned it as a chivalrous battle in the clouds while the reality as experienced by pilots was extremely dangerous and anything but glamorous. The differences in each air force, French, British, as well as the United ...
The Malleus Maleficarum And King James: Defining Witchcraft, 2018 Chapman University
The Malleus Maleficarum And King James: Defining Witchcraft, Elizabeth Mack
Heinrich Kramer’s Malleus Maleficarum was a medieval treatise on witchcraft, describing the nature of witchcraft and the appropriate punishment for accused witches. After disappearing into obscurity in the early sixteenth century, it resurfaced during the rise of the early modern witch hunts. The reprinting of the Malleus at this time has often led to the belief that the medieval text played a large role in this rise in witch hunts. However, a comparison of the Malleus to later works shows a shift in the definitions of witchcraft during the early modern era. This is especially evident in the work ...
Khrushchev Comes To America: The Advent Of Mutual Understanding, 2018 Chapman University
Khrushchev Comes To America: The Advent Of Mutual Understanding, Kyle A. Kordon
Soviet-American relations during the Cold War can be characterized by a series of highs and lows that were perpetuated by a handful of specific events. Nikita Khrushchev’s visit to the United States in September 1959 was one of such events. This trip culminated in the development of mutual understanding, an idea that was both a cultural and a political exchange, which set the stage for better relations between the two nations during that period of the Cold War. Even though historians neglect the impact of Khrushchev’s visit, without these initial steps later breakthroughs might not have been possible.
Soviet Stooge Or Spanish Socialist? The Political Ideology Of Juan Negrín, 2018 Chapman University
Soviet Stooge Or Spanish Socialist? The Political Ideology Of Juan Negrín, Jessica Jones
During the Spanish Civil War, Dr. Juan Negrín was asked to create a new government for the Spanish Republic. In May 1938, he gave a speech delineating his aims for the Republic through his Thirteen-Point Program. As the last Prime Minister of the Republic, Juan Negrín was criticized for being a Communist sympathizer and a puppet of Joseph Stalin. This paper focuses on deconstruction Juan Negrín’s Thirteen-Points to argue that he was not a puppet of Stalin, nor was he creating a new government that involved Communist policies. This paper concludes that Juan Negrín was not a puppet of ...
