Reactions Of Marmara Community To Invasions Subsequent To The Armistice Of Mudros, Hasan Ali POLAT 2010 Selcuk University, Turkey

Reactions Of Marmara Community To Invasions Subsequent To The Armistice Of Mudros, Hasan Ali Polat

Hasan Ali POLAT

The Entente Powers commenced to invade Anatolia after signing of Armistice of Mudros. Almost every place and institution including the capital of Ottoman Empire was exposed to invasion. While The Entente Powers were attempting to invade, they tortured Turkish folk in various ways. They planned to annihilate the Ottoman completely with these occupations but the folk who lived in the region which exposed to these invasions expressed injustice of invasions at every turn. Indignation meetings were organized in many places and protesting telegrams were sent to agents of the Entente Powers. Eventually, the invasions of the Entente Powers and their ...

Excesses Of The Super Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau 2010 University of Central Florida

Excesses Of The Super Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

From its modest beginnings in 1966 at the AFL-NFL Championship Game in Los Angeles down to Super Bowl XLIV, it has become increasingly apparent that Super Sunday has grown exponentially and in the process has become a bloated monster. Over the past quarter century or more Super Sunday has illustrated the ability of a sporting event to offer a distorted and exaggerated version of social reality and social values in America and the Super Bowl has done this on a grand, glorious, and obscene scale.


Athletes In Confessional Mode, Richard C. Crepeau 2010 University of Central Florida

Athletes In Confessional Mode, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

What is it about the media, and by implication, the public, that we seem to require a public confessional from our fallen heroes and icons? As I watched some of the Mark McGwire interview with Bob Costas I wondered if it had started with McGwire looking at the floor and saying, "Forgive me Bobby, for I have sinned." I trust it did not, even though it might have added to the ambiance.

Biography Cast In Irony: Caveats, Stylization, And Indeterminacy In The Biographical History Plays Of Tom Stoppard And Michael Frayn, Christopher Shonka 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Biography Cast In Irony: Caveats, Stylization, And Indeterminacy In The Biographical History Plays Of Tom Stoppard And Michael Frayn, Christopher Shonka

Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This study examines Tom Stoppard and Michael Frayn‘s incorporation of epistemological themes related to the limits of historical knowledge within their recent biography-based plays. The primary works that are analyzed are Stoppard‘s The Invention of Love (1997) and The Coast of Utopia trilogy (2002), and Frayn‘s Copenhagen (1998), Democracy (2003), and Afterlife (2008). In these plays, caveats, or warnings, that illustrate sources of historical indeterminacy are combined with theatrical stylizations that overtly suggest the authors‘ processes of interpretation and revisionism through an ironic distancing. These processes are analyzed and then placed in a broader context by comparing ...


Fighting For Survival: Coal Miners And The Struggle Over Health And Safety In The United States, 1968-1988, Richard Fry 2010 Wayne State University

Fighting For Survival: Coal Miners And The Struggle Over Health And Safety In The United States, 1968-1988, Richard Fry

Wayne State University Dissertations

My dissertation focuses on coal mining and occupational health and safety in the United States from 1968 to 1985. In the late 1960s, coal miners faced the constant risk of injury, occupational disease, and death. The dangerous conditions in the coal industry resulted in a massive explosion at the Farmington mine in West Virginia in 1968, which killed 78 miners. The Farmington disaster spurred miners to campaign for the reform of state and federal coal mine health and safety laws in the United States. They rejected the national leadership of their union, the United Mine Workers (UMW), which they perceived ...


The Rise Of Public Sector Unionism In Detroit, 1947-1967, Louis Eugene Jones 2010 Wayne State University

The Rise Of Public Sector Unionism In Detroit, 1947-1967, Louis Eugene Jones

Wayne State University Dissertations

In 1947, the Michigan Legislature passed into law the Hutchinson Act banning strikes of state and local workers. The law provided for the termination of striking public sector workers but did not require state and local agencies to bargain with public employees or their representatives. It even allowed for fines and prison sentences for non public sector workers who influenced public sector workers to strike. The law forced public sector unions into an untenable state of "collective begging." Indeed, it was often referred to as punitive and draconian. 18 years later, the Michigan Legislature passed and the governor signed into ...

The Age Of Aquarius: The Reorientation Of Nasa After 1969, Junichi Miyamoto 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Age Of Aquarius: The Reorientation Of Nasa After 1969, Junichi Miyamoto

Calvert Undergraduate Research Awards

One of the truisms about the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) in the eyes of most politicians is that it is a listless relic from the Cold War. On the surface, this interpretation seems acceptable. After all, its crowning achievement (the moon landings) has yet to be surpassed after forty years and likely will not be matched for at least another ten. Moreover NASA’s ordained cause, gaining the upper hand in space, was made possible by the national willpower only the fear of being overtaken by a technologically advanced arch-nemesis can generate. This condition certainly is not on the ...

Witch Hunts: From Salem To Guantanamo Bay (Review), Michael D. Bailey 2010 Iowa State University

Witch Hunts: From Salem To Guantanamo Bay (Review), Michael D. Bailey

History Publications

The purpose of this odd book is to argue that, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the fear and extraordinary governmental responses they have generated, the modern Western world, and particularly the United States of America, is on the verge of (though not yet embroiled in) a new era of witch hunts. The modern malefactors are, obviously, supposed terrorists rather than supposed witches. Their means of bringing about death and destruction are guns, bombs, and biological devices, not spells and incantations. Yet Rapley argues over the course of twenty breathless chapters that a number of characteristics ...


Unlocked Books: Manuscripts Of Learned Magic In The Medieval Libraries Of Central Europe (Review), Michael D. Bailey 2010 Iowa State University

Unlocked Books: Manuscripts Of Learned Magic In The Medieval Libraries Of Central Europe (Review), Michael D. Bailey

History Publications

Magic in the medieval past is often seen through the eyes of its opponents, through trial records, inquisitorial texts, denunciatory sermons, and theological [End Page 232] treatises explaining and condemning the demonic nature of virtually all magical rites. Yet there is another way to approach at least elite, learned magic in Europe’s medieval period, namely through the texts that literate practitioners of those forms of magic have left scattered through libraries across the continent. This method of studying magic is not new, but has undergone significant development in recent years, with Richard Kieckhefer, Claire Fanger, Frank Klaassen, and Sophie ...

A Profitable Public Sphere: The Creation Of The New York Times Op-Ed Page, Michael J. Socolow

Communication and Journalism Faculty Scholarship

This stud y utilizes archival and other primary materials to describe the development of the New York Times op-ed page. This innovative forum for commentary, which premiered in September 1970, is examined through the lenses of Jiirgen Habermas' public sphere theory and eco­ nomic concerns in the American newspaper industry. The page provid­ ed a significant source of revenue and diversified social, cultural, and political news analysis. Times executives sought to serve the public interest while considering corporate profits.


Hindutva And Anti-Muslim Communal Violence In India Under The Bharatiya Janata Party (1990-2010), Elaisha Nandrajog 2010 Claremont McKenna College

Hindutva And Anti-Muslim Communal Violence In India Under The Bharatiya Janata Party (1990-2010), Elaisha Nandrajog

CMC Senior Theses

On May 16, 1998, under the directives of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led coalition, the Indian government detonated three nuclear bombs in the Rajasthan desert, near a site called Pokhran.1 If the name of India’s inter-ballistic missile, Agni, the god of fire in the Vedic tradition, is inscribed in antiquity, its symbolism in 1998 was entirely new, reflecting the rise of a political party that emblematizes a chauvinistic, majoritarian stance.2 To celebrate India’s accomplishment, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), a sister organization of the BJP, ordered the construction of a temple dedicated to ...


Values In Transition: The Chiricahua Apache From 1886-1914, John W. Ragsdale Jr. 2010 UMKC Schoolof Law

Values In Transition: The Chiricahua Apache From 1886-1914, John W. Ragsdale Jr.

American Indian Law Review

Law confirms but seldom determines the course of a society. Values and beliefs, instead, are the true polestars, incrementally implemented by the laws, customs, and policies. The Chiricahua Apache, a tribal society of hunters, gatherers, and raiders in the mountains and deserts of the Southwest, were squeezed between the growing populations and economies of the United States and Mexico. Raiding brought response, reprisal, and ultimately confinement at the loathsome San Carlos Reservation. Though most Chiricahua submitted to the beginnings of assimilation, a number of the hardiest and least malleable did not. Periodic breakouts, wild raids through New Mexico and Arizona ...


Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, Alison W. Berryman 2010 Colby College

Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, Alison W. Berryman

Honors Theses

My thesis examines the Soviet Union’s educational system during Stalin’s rule. It proves that the goal of the Soviet educational system in the 1920s and 1930s was to instill strong Communist loyalty from a very early age and to expedite the process of industrialization by educating future workers in “socially useful” labor.


To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, Margaret Lowe 2009 Bridgewater State University

To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, Margaret Lowe

Margaret Lowe

Although scholars have begun to examine American women's religious history, few published collections of their actual words and creative expressions exist. The proposed volume, an edited, thematic collection of primary source documents will fill this gap. The book will demonstrate the contexts and textures of American women's spiritual authority in the past, including those who claimed to speak for "God" or another deity. Drawing on my expertise in gender history and well-honed archival skills, my project will identify, edit and annotate the most illuminating and representative among American women's diverse religious voices. A FLRG will provide start-up ...


Mata Hari: A Life Of Lies, Olivia Blessing 2009 Sias International University, China

Mata Hari: A Life Of Lies, Olivia Blessing

Olivia L Blessing

During the international scandal of her 1917 trial and subsequent execution, Mata Hari’s name became a universal title for a traitorous woman. Since then, spies like Tokyo Rose and Radient Jade were known respectively as the "Mata Hari of the airways" and the "Mata Hari of the East." However, unlike the other two women, Mata Hari was famous for being a woman who would do anything for a price years before the French accused her of treason, and this image hurt her during the trial as much as the accusations of treason did.


Rediscovering Radical History, Terry Irving 2009 University of Wollongong

Rediscovering Radical History, Terry Irving

Terry Irving

This article examines aspects of the connection between radical history and labour history in Australia. It begins by resurrecting the forgotten history work by intellectuals in the labour movement from the 1880s to the 1950s, and the conservative attacks on radical history in the 50s and 60s. It continues by highlighting the early attempts to keep this radical tradition alive among labour historians, and concludes by criticising Robin Gollan's failure to distinguish popular democracy from the democratic possibilities of representative government.
