Work Is A Human Right: Seeking Asylum, Seeking Employment, Rosemary Webb 2010 Southern Cross University

Work Is A Human Right: Seeking Asylum, Seeking Employment, Rosemary Webb

School of Arts and Social Sciences

This paper argues matters of rights and of belonging in the relationship between forced migration and paid work. It explores the significance of work in social identity and the imperative that this be recognised in meeting the dispossessed. It draws on historical and current knowledge to explore labour market movement responses to refugees' need for work. The argument derives from observations on threatened peoples‘ mobility and the dignity of labour as a human rights challenge. While forced / voluntary migration is one political consequence of war, another is the associated loss of work opportunity that threatens individual economic survival and social ...

Troup Factory: Archaeological Investigations Of A Nineteenth Century Mill Site In Lagrange, Georgia., Lindsey R. Moates, Greg J. Hansen, Patrick Severts, Terry G. Powis

Faculty Publications

Troup Factory, the first cotton mill in Troup County, and the second such plant in Georgia, was established in 1846 on Flat Shoal's Creek. The mill was in operation throughout the latter half of the 19th century before being relocated to the city of LaGrange. Troup Factory sheetings and homespun were standards of excellence across a widespread area of Georgia. The purpose of this paper is to document the history of the mill site through archival research and archaeological survey. Through these means a better understanding of a once prestigious mill site was obtained in order to illuminate an ...


Field Based, Supervised Theological Education, Murray House, Douglas E. Robertson 2010 Avondale College of Higher Education

Field Based, Supervised Theological Education, Murray House, Douglas E. Robertson

Theology Papers and Journal Articles

Churches expect exceptional leadership from their pastors to lead in the ministry and mission of their local congregation. Every time a new pastor is appointed to their church, many members hold their breath, praying that their new leader will rise up to their expectations. When ministerial interns enter their first parish, they hope that their training has prepared them for the demands they know they will face in their new appointment.

The Political Personality Of U.S. President Barack Obama, Aubrey Immelman 2010 St. John's University / College of St. Benedict

The Political Personality Of U.S. President Barack Obama, Aubrey Immelman

Psychology Faculty Publications

This paper presents the results of an indirect assessment of the personality of U.S. president Barack Obama, from the conceptual perspective of personologist Theodore Millon.

Information concerning Obama was collected from biographical sources and media reports and synthesized into a personality profile using the Millon Inventory of Diagnostic Criteria (MIDC), which yields 34 normal and maladaptive personality classifications congruent with Axis II of DSM–IV.

The personality profile yielded by the MIDC was analyzed on the basis of interpretive guidelines provided in the MIDC and Millon Index of Personality Styles manuals. Obama’s primary personality patterns were found to ...

Toward A "Democratic" Vision Of Pedagogy: Hermeneutic Interpretation Through Communicative Discourse In The Humanities Classroom, James Magrini 2010 College of DuPage

Toward A "Democratic" Vision Of Pedagogy: Hermeneutic Interpretation Through Communicative Discourse In The Humanities Classroom, James Magrini

Philosophy Scholarship

Philosophers of education writing on teaching for social justice and student empowerment have suggested various theories for enacting a "democratic" learning environment within our schools. Strategies that have been suggested include classroom management stressing student-centered learning, peer-interaction, and the inclusion of diverse learning needs and styles grounded in a pedagogy composed of instructor-student initiated "discourse." Building on "social meliorist," or Social Reconstruction curriculum theory, I attempt to define the notion of authentic "critical pedagogy" through the analysis of classroom instruction in the humanities, and literature in particular. There is the potential for the emergence in praxis of an authentic "democratic ...


“We Live At A Great Distance From The Church”: Cartographic Strategies Of The Shakers, 1805-1835, Carol Medlicott 2010 Hamilton College

“We Live At A Great Distance From The Church”: Cartographic Strategies Of The Shakers, 1805-1835, Carol Medlicott

American Communal Societies Quarterly

While Shakerism was spreading in the several decades following the 1780s, America itself was also expanding territorially. Just as America’s territorial expansion was the stimulus for map-making, Shaker expansion produced a need for maps and for the skills of the surveyor and the cartographer. The Shaker movement was long distinctive among American utopian sects, in that it attempted to encompass a large number of communities arrayed across a thousand miles of geographic distance. This expansive geographic structure produced an array of interesting and contradictory strategies among the Shakers. Even while leading Shakers expressed doubt about the appropriateness of geography ...

A primary goal of the study is to understand the perceptions of women in information security and determine ...


World Of Unknown Creatures And Their Hidden Works, Rajkrishna Paul 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

World Of Unknown Creatures And Their Hidden Works, Rajkrishna Paul

Many Voices Poetry Slam & Creative Writing Collection

What is the most mysterious feelings in mankind? What is the most general way by which every mankind is subject to change. Well monotonous, and steady life where someone does the same kind of work at same pace in same time, without any change of events, creates the burdensome feeling in a person. Yet people are unaware of it. We don't know where are we going, yet we go at the same pace, since in practical sense we are getting some credit for something. But the thing how much do we keep up, and maintain the balance in nature ...


Out Cold, Fred G. Leebron 2010 Gettysburg College

Out Cold, Fred G. Leebron

English Faculty Publications

Walter had just completed his five-mile route on the treadmill and was headed from the gym to his car in a nearby parking lot - he was in fact circumnavigating a field on which a few idiotic teenagers were kicking a soccer ball at a field hockey goal, so as not to approach near their game - when he was struck in the side and back of his head by something large and forceful and solid and round, and it sent his glasses flying from his face and his bright white tennis cap skittering from his head and it flattened him on ...


Non-Traditional Lightweight Polypropylene Composites Reinforced With Milkweed Floss, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Non-Traditional Lightweight Polypropylene Composites Reinforced With Milkweed Floss, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

Lightweight composites are preferred for automotive applications due to the weight restrictions and also due to the presence of inherent voids that can enhance the sound absorption of these composites. The density of the reinforcing materials plays a crucial role in such lightweight composites. Milkweed is a unique natural cellulose fiber that has a completely hollow center and low density (0.9 g cm−3) unlike any other natural cellulose fiber. The low density of milkweed fibers will allow the incorporation of higher amounts of fiber per unit weight of a composite, which is expected to lead to lightweight composites ...


Review: Mark Noll's 'The New Shape Of World Christianity: How American Experience Reflects Global Faith', William Vance Trollinger 2010 University of Dayton

Review: Mark Noll's 'The New Shape Of World Christianity: How American Experience Reflects Global Faith', William Vance Trollinger

History Faculty Publications

It has become commonplace to observe that the center of Christianity has moved from Euroamerica to the global South and East. Still, it is a bit jarring to realize, as Mark Noll notes at the beginning of this compelling book, that "this past Sunday" more "Anglicans attended church in each of Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda than did Anglicans in Britain and Canada and Episcopalians in the United States combined"; more "members of Brazil's Pentecostal Assemblies of God [were] at church than the combined total in the two largest U.S. Pentecostal denominations"; and more people attended the ...


Sold To The Highest Bidder? : An Investigation Of The Diplomacy Regarding Bulgaria's Entry Into World War I, Matthew A. Yokell 2010 University of Richmond

Sold To The Highest Bidder? : An Investigation Of The Diplomacy Regarding Bulgaria's Entry Into World War I, Matthew A. Yokell

Master's Theses

This thesis explores the multi-faceted and complex negotiations that took place between Bulgaria and Europe’s major alliance systems at the start of World War I as both groups attempted to convince Bulgaria to enter the conflict on their side. Drawing on published document collections from the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary) and the Allies (Great Britain, France, and Russia), as well as unpublished materials from the German Foreign Office, this work explores the evolution of the interest of both power groups in Bulgaria and the nature of their negotiations for an alliance with it, looking at the reasons why Bulgaria ...

“Weavings Of War, Fabric Of Memory,” An Exhibit Review, Lisa Gabbert 2010 Utah State University

“Weavings Of War, Fabric Of Memory,” An Exhibit Review, Lisa Gabbert

English Faculty Publications

Weavings of War, Fabrics of Memory is an exhibition of international textiles spanning a number of countries and ethnic/linguistic groups. Bound together by the themes of war, armed conflict, displacement, and rupture, works in the exhibit include post-apartheid South African memory cloths, Hmong story cloths, arpilleras from Chile and Peru, and war rugs from Central Asia. I brought the exhibit to Logan, Utah, in the fall of 2007 and organized lectures and films around it. It was displayed at the Thatcher-Young Mansion, the final stop on its three-year tour. An exhibit catalogue of the same title was edited by ...
