California As Music To American Ears: Migration, Technology, And Rock And Roll In The Golden State, 1946-2000, Toby T. Willett 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

California As Music To American Ears: Migration, Technology, And Rock And Roll In The Golden State, 1946-2000, Toby T. Willett

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Migrations and technological advances in California following World War II, spurred radical changes in the production and development of popular music, most notably rock and roll. California largely lacked the entrenched traditions of the American Northeast, and in many ways its exploding population translated into the growth of a culture built around embracing newer methodologies, whether technological innovations or radical artistic departures. In large part owing to its increasing ethnic diversity during the economic expansion, California was uniquely poised to become a center of incredible postwar dynamism, especially when seen in the production, consumption, and stylistic development of music. Nevertheless ...


Clash Of Titans: William Randolph Hearst And His Impact On American Foreign Policy During The Interwar Period, Brandon D. Roper 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Clash Of Titans: William Randolph Hearst And His Impact On American Foreign Policy During The Interwar Period, Brandon D. Roper

Master's Theses and Project Reports

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze a prominent figure of the 20th century, William Randolph Hearst and to analyze the influence he was able to exert over American foreign policy through his own personal connections and those of his periodicals. This also includes an analysis between Hearst and Roosevelt, and noting the varying levels of influence between the two. This thesis will demonstrate that William Randolph Hearst is a prominent figure of 20th century history, but was overshadowed by Roosevelt. Hearst while powerful was always putting his power into ventures that would backfire politically. When his papers declined ...

The Idea Of Human Rights – Western Culture Heritage Or Universal Value?, Boguslawa Lewandowska, Stanislaw Cichocki 2010 Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

The Idea Of Human Rights – Western Culture Heritage Or Universal Value?, Boguslawa Lewandowska, Stanislaw Cichocki

Bogusława Lewandowska

In both the Charter of United Nations (San Francisco, 1945) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Paris, 1948) the view of the universality of human rights can be found. However one can ask if these documents written in the ring of western culture’s values can be accepted in societies, which traditionally choose a social and economic system restricting civil rights in politics, economics, culture etc. The second question we like to pose asks whether the preservation of human rights is independent or connected to the implementation of a social and economic system in the society. In this connection ...


Mass Education-Led Growth And Non-Agrarian Villages: Long-Term Results Of The Kerala Model, Narendar Pani, Jafar K 2010 National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore

Mass Education-Led Growth And Non-Agrarian Villages: Long-Term Results Of The Kerala Model, Narendar Pani, Jafar K

Jafar K

The advance of the human development perspective has seen education being established not just as a means of development but as an end in itself. This has created a case for focusing on mass education, even if it implies lower growth rates in the initial years. Such an approach is bound to influence the very pattern of development over the long run. For one, a sustained emphasis on mass education within a framework that assures adequate social security could increase the well-being of workers to a point where it affects the choices they make. In this paper a combination of ...

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study examines the storage versus composition of Spanish inflected verbal forms in first language (L1) and second language (L2) speakers of Spanish. L2 participants were selected to have mid-to-advanced proficiency, high classroom experience, and low immersion experience, typical of medium-to-advanced foreign language learners. Participants were shown the infinitival forms of verbs from either Class I (the default class, which takes new verbs) or Classes II and III (nondefault classes) and were asked to produce either first-person singular present tense or imperfect forms, in separate tasks. In the present tense, the L1 speakers showed inflected-form frequency effects (i.e., higher ...


Informal Learning, Improvisation And Teacher Education, Ruth Wright, Panagiotis Kanellopoulos 2010 Western University

Informal Learning, Improvisation And Teacher Education, Ruth Wright, Panagiotis Kanellopoulos

Ruth Wright Dr

This paper explores firstly the sense in which improvisation might be conceived of as an informal music education process and, secondly, the effects of a course in free improvisation on student teachers' perceptions in relation to themselves as musicians, music as a school subject and children as musicians. The results of a study conducted in two Greek universities are presented. Using a narrative methodology, examples of data from the reflective diaries or learning journals which 91 trainee teachers kept as part of their participation in an improvisation module are presented and discussed. The argument is made that improvisation, as a ...
