Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender 2018 Fordham University

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender

Student Theses 2015-Present

This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...


Albion Native Was Present At Capture Of John Wilkes Booth, Matthew R. Ballard 2018 Orleans County Department of History

Albion Native Was Present At Capture Of John Wilkes Booth, Matthew R. Ballard

Pioneer Record

Just as many men claimed they were present at the Battle of Gettysburg when they were not, some members of the 16th New York Cavalry claimed to have participated in the capture of John Wilkes Booth. William Collins of Albion, a veteran of the 16th New York Cavalry, claimed that he was present when Boston Corbett shot Booth at the Garrett Farm despite a lack of evidence to support his participation.

History Capstone Projects

Every nation and civilization has a central founding narrative that is ingrained in its history. In Ancient Rome, the story of Romulus and Remus was central to Roman identity and culture. The same can be said for the United States, where the American War of Independence (1775-1781) featured thirteen culturally different North American colonies who miraculously banded together to seek independence from the then largest colonial superpower in Imperial History. The American Colonies cast a bold —and potentially dangerous —stone into the waters of Imperial History when, in April of 1775, the first shots of Independence were fired the Old ...

Remembering The Church In The Wildwood: The Archival Processing And Digitization Of The Martinsville Baptist Church Collection, Allison N. Grimes 2018 Stephen F. Austin State University

Remembering The Church In The Wildwood: The Archival Processing And Digitization Of The Martinsville Baptist Church Collection, Allison N. Grimes

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Martinsville Baptist Church was founded in 1912 in a rural farming community on State Highway 7 in eastern Nacogdoches County. The church was founded during a revival being held in the community of Martinsville and has been in continuous operation ever since. The church grew throughout its lifetime, reaching record attendance and membership numbers between 1950 and 1980. Since the early 2000s, church attendance and membership has been in decline. This thesis outlines the history of Martinsville Baptist Church and explains conservation measures taken during the archival processing and digitization of records in the Martinsville Baptist Church Collection.

Miami: Then & Now, Dana Mcgeehan

Library Research Scholars Program 2017

This project consists of an ArcGIS Story Map of Miami-Dade County. Each “then” and “now” photo set will be marked with an icon on the map. The side-bar will show viewers two photos of the same physical space. These photos can be placed side-by-side. These spaces will mostly be buildings, but may also focus on the landscape through maps and how this has changed over time. The “then” photos come primarily from the UM Library’s Special Collections and the Florida State Archives website, floridamemory.com. The “now” photos are ones that I’ve taken myself. A paragraph or two ...


Millville Cemetery Monument Stands As A Remarkable Local Landmark, Matthew R. Ballard 2018 Orleans County Department of History

Millville Cemetery Monument Stands As A Remarkable Local Landmark, Matthew R. Ballard

Pioneer Record

The headstone of Asa C. Hill, buried at Millville Cemetery in Shelby, maybe the only local cemetery marker crafted in the likeness of the deceased. A member of the 28th New York Infantry during the Civil War, Hill lost his leg during the Battle of Cedar Mountain, an injury that would have a lasting impact on his life.


The Winter War: Its Causes And Effects, Ethan D. Beck 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 ...

"A Completely New Approach" To Indigenous Cultural Heritage: Evaluating The Queensland Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act, Mark E. O'Neill 2018 University of Queensland

"A Completely New Approach" To Indigenous Cultural Heritage: Evaluating The Queensland Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act, Mark E. O'Neill

The International Indigenous Policy Journal

The Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003 challenged the hegemony that Western, archaeological methodologies has held over Indigenous cultural heritage in Australia. By choosing to relinquish state control and authority over cultural heritage in favour of the expertise of Indigenous people, the Act created a unique and innovative heritage policy. Over the 10 years the Act has been in force, it has seen a variety of approaches adopted as part of myriad projects. This has created a mature field of practice for investigation and analysis. This article examines and critiques the Act to determine its successes and weaknesses. In doing so ...
