Hippie Communes Of The West Coast: A Study Of Gender Roles And The Evolution Of The Counterculture's Definition Of Freedom, Lisa A. Scott

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

Following the deterioration of conditions in the Haight-Ashbury in 1968, hippies moved to communes throughout the west coast, specifically in the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains above San Francisco in California. Beginning as a utopian vision, many of the traditions and problems that commune residents sought to escape manifested again in communal life, including the division of races, repression of women, and intolerance of homosexuals. Additionally, they could not escape the financial realities of the world they lived in, and communes were plagued with health issues and unscrupulous individuals. Eventually, women of the communes, forced to provide income for their families ...

“We Are Now Americans”: Henry Hospers, Sioux County, Iowa, And Dutch Settler Acculturation, Douglas Firth Anderson 2018 Northwestern College - Orange City

“We Are Now Americans”: Henry Hospers, Sioux County, Iowa, And Dutch Settler Acculturation, Douglas Firth Anderson

Northwestern Review

Henry Hospers (1830-1901) was the leader of the Dutch kolonie (colony) of Sioux County, Iowa. When Hospers named and platted Orange City in 1870, Hendrik P. Scholte of the Pella, Iowa colony was dead and Albertus C. Van Raalte of the Holland, Michigan colony was nearing the end of his life. Compared to the more famous Scholte and Van Raalte (who settled their respective Midwestern colonies in 1847), Hospers has received little critical attention as a significant Dutch American immigrant leader. Hospers’ relative historical obscurity is understandable. Scholte and Van Raalte were clergy, while Hospers was a layman. Moreover, he ...

A Colony’S State Of Sovereignty: Decolonization Has Yet To Take Place In Rwanda, Mahalia Mehu

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Martin Shipway, renowned author of Decolonization and Its Impact and professor of twentieth-century French Studies stated that:

"[...]it took only about twenty years for most of the formal structures and institutions of colonialism [...]to be swept away.[The] often violent and intermittently intense period of crisis[...] [explains] an international phenomenon as complex as decolonization[...] ."

Yet this quote by Shipway does not speak to the fact that independence from former colonial powers has not been fully achieved and neither has decolonization. According to the documentation of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994, the former German/Belgian colony of Rwanda did not achieve ...
