The Evolution Of Sunset Magazine's Cooking Department: The Accommodation Of Men's And Women's Cooking In The 1930s, Jennifer Hoolhorst Pagano 2019 University of the Pacific

The Evolution Of Sunset Magazine's Cooking Department: The Accommodation Of Men's And Women's Cooking In The 1930s, Jennifer Hoolhorst Pagano

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

The Western regional magazine Sunset has been published under a series of owners and publishers since 1898. In 1928, Sunset was purchased by Lawrence Lane, a Midwestern magazine executive who transformed it from a failing turn-of-the-century, general interest publication about the West, into a successful magazine about living in the West for the Western middle-class. Sunset had always been a magazine for men and women, and one that appealed to both male and female intellectuals at the time Lane purchased it. Lane and his editors attempted to interject more rigid middle-class ideals into a magazine that had espoused ideas that ...

Revisiting The Women Factor In China’S Economy, 1918-1931 (Cotton, Sex, And Silk Industry), Godwin Gyimah

2019 Awards for Excellence in Student Research and Creative Activity – Documents

The first five decades of the twentieth century mark an era where China experienced an industrial revolution. Globalization of capitalism brought major changes in the Chinese economy.1 Whereas China was initially characterized as a region that produced goods mostly to be used by its citizens, now the system changed and had numerous products being sent overseas to neighboring regions. In 1919, Chinese export products increased vehemently from a value of 486 in 1918 to 631 in 1919.2 The production of goods and other services were now at the large-scale level making most sectors in China grow as an ...

Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project 2018 Annual Report, Michael S. Nassaney 2019 Western Michigan University

Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project 2018 Annual Report, Michael S. Nassaney

Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project

Western Michigan University (WMU) hosted its 43rd annual archaeological field school this past July and August under the auspices of the Fort St. Joseph Archaeological Project. The Project is a long-term, multidisciplinary, community-based partnership between the City of Niles and WMU that investigates and interprets colonialism and the fur trade in the region.

We selected the theme “Technology Then and Now,” to focus our activities in 2019. We recognize that technology is not only important in the 21st century, but has defined humanity since our earliest ancestors crafted simple tools to assist them in their survival. Most of the archaeological ...

Who’S On First? Kansas City’S Female Baseball Stars, 1899–1929, Mark E. Eberle

Monographs

Although female players were typically excluded from formal baseball teams, teams consisting entirely or partly of female players were organized across the country as early as the mid-1800s. The first female baseball club in Kansas and adjacent states was organized in Wichita in 1873. These early teams predated the arrival of the barnstorming teams with female players and usually one or more male players, who were sometimes disguised as women. Female players on most of these early traveling teams wore bloomers, and the teams were referred to as “bloomer girls.” Women on later teams wore traditional baseball uniforms and objected ...

Teresa Carreño’S Early Years In Caracas: Cultural Intersections Of Piano Virtuosity, Gender, And Nation-Building In The Nineteenth Century, Laura Pita 2019 University of Kentucky

Teresa Carreño’S Early Years In Caracas: Cultural Intersections Of Piano Virtuosity, Gender, And Nation-Building In The Nineteenth Century, Laura Pita

Theses and Dissertations--Music

This dissertation studies the musical activities of the Venezuelan pianist and composer Teresa Carreño (1853-1917) during her formative years in Caracas. It examines the sources that pertain to her musical environment, early piano training, and first compositions in the context of the growth in Caracas of the practices of recreational sociability, the increasing influence of virtuosic music, and the tradition of private concert-making sponsored by devoted music amateurs. This study argues that Teresa Carreño’s musical upbringing occurred in a social and cultural context in which Enlightenment-framed ideologies of civilization and social progress, shaped in fundamental ways the perceptions of ...

Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands: Social Workers And Adoption Practices In United States Maternity Homes, Cecilia English Donovan 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder

Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands: Social Workers And Adoption Practices In United States Maternity Homes, Cecilia English Donovan

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In the years following World War II, American culture emphasized marriage and family more than previous eras. Society idealized a ‘perfect family,’ and encouraged women to aspire to marriage and motherhood. At the same time, social conditions leading up to the sexual revolution resulted in women beginning to liberate themselves sexually. Without the availability of legal abortion or oral contraceptives, more women began finding themselves pregnant out of wedlock in a society that encouraged them to do just the opposite. Having few options, many women turned to maternity homes to conceal their pregnancy. With the advent of the Social Welfare ...


Farm Women As Producers & Consumers In The 20th Century U.S. South, Joseph J. Kaminski 2019 University of Central Florida

Farm Women As Producers & Consumers In The 20th Century U.S. South, Joseph J. Kaminski

Honors Undergraduate Theses

The intent of this thesis is to examine white, rural women of the South who were directly affected by home demonstration between 1920 - 1950 and to discuss their roles as producers and consumers in the expanding market economy. Home demonstration, a three-tiered bureaucratic agency that provided domestic education and production techniques to Southern women, played a major role in guiding women toward the expanding market economy. Agents often had to temper their programs in order to compromise with the women they served to accommodate rural restrictions on capital, capability, and confidence. By integrating rural women into a more modernized, less ...

A Once And Future Queen: Jackie Kennedy And Her Kingdom, Alyssa J. Windsor 2019 Georgia Southern University

A Once And Future Queen: Jackie Kennedy And Her Kingdom, Alyssa J. Windsor

University Honors Program Theses

The Kennedy Camelot was important to the American people and how we now come to view families in the White House. Jacqueline Kennedy was perhaps one of the most important characters in this story that was tragically interrupted. A historical figure not fully developed, Jackie single handedly created the beloved Camelot era and changed the way we view twentieth century America. Taking a deeper look into the private life of the most popular First Lady in American history in relation to the political rollercoaster that was the 1960s, new conclusions can be drawn about the Kennedy’s Camelot and who ...


Beyond The Numbers: Implications Of The Palestinian Female Election Quota For Women In Local Government, Elke Taylor 2019 Edith Cowan University

Beyond The Numbers: Implications Of The Palestinian Female Election Quota For Women In Local Government, Elke Taylor

Theses : Honours

Palestinian women have contributed a rich and diverse history of political participation amidst the complex and anarchic political landscape of Palestine. The informal contributions of Palestinian women have played an integral and significant role in democratisation, peace-building efforts and the progression of women's rights. Despite forging and maintaining an active political presence, the political roles of women have been largely informal, localised and heavily contested. The recent establishment of female election quotas have greatly progressed the formalisation of women's political roles, brought about an increase in political participation and the representation of women in political institutions. In spite ...
