The (Inter)Active Soap Opera Viewer: Fantastic Practices & Mediated Communities, Melissa A. Ames

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

In today’s cultural realm, everything exists within a hierarchy of sorts – fandom has not escaped this process of judgmental ranking and social stratification. Admitting to be a “fan” of something often earns people mixed responses depending on the subject of their devoted following. The more one’s object of choice strays from the mainstream, the lower one exists on the fan hierarchy. If the masses find the fan subject matter to exist on the cultural periphery, fans are often quite ridiculed. This has historically been the case for soap opera fans. What is often overlooked, however, is the utility ...

Twilight Follows Tradition: Analyzing "Biting" Critiques Of Vampire Narratives For Their Portrayals Of Gender & Sexuality, Melissa A. Ames 2010 Eastern Illinois University

Twilight Follows Tradition: Analyzing "Biting" Critiques Of Vampire Narratives For Their Portrayals Of Gender & Sexuality, Melissa A. Ames

Melissa A. Ames

Vampires have dominated print literature since the 18th century, eventually becoming more visible as they crossed mediated boundaries and genre divides. Now flourishing in neo-gothic realms like science fiction and fantasy, in print genres like chick-lit and young adult, and in the visual realm (from Hollywood’s big screen to daytime television’s sudsy small screen), vampire narratives are finding increased popularity. Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series has shined a new spotlight on the all-encompassing umbrella genre that is “vamp lit,” and with it has come renewed attention to the so-called anti-feminist messages present in such narratives, such as the ...

Students, Faculty And "Sustainable" Wpa Work, Thia Wolf, Jill Swiencicki, Chris Fosen 2010 California State University - Chico

Students, Faculty And "Sustainable" Wpa Work, Thia Wolf, Jill Swiencicki, Chris Fosen

English Faculty/Staff Publications

In lieu of an abstract, here is the chapter's first paragraph:

Despite several cycles of reforms spanning the last fifteen years, we three composition colleagues were unable to achieve widespread student engagement in our required one-semester writing course. At California State University, Chico, the WPA oversees faculty development and program assessment for a first-year writing program that serves 2700 students each year with over 100 sections of first-year writing. Several different WPAs experienced fatigue as they undertook challenging and often unproductive work: resisting an outdated California State policy on the aims and goals for General Education, including what constitutes ...


Dreams And Visions As Divine Revelation, Sarah Horton 2010 Ouachita Baptist University

Dreams And Visions As Divine Revelation, Sarah Horton

Honors Theses

As a Christian, one might wonder, "What happens to those who have never heard the gospel?'" Answers and speculations abound, espoused in theories like exclusivism, inclusivism, and postmortem evangelism. But what if these are not the only possible answers? Although dreams and visions could potentially be the answer to a much broader category of questions than the one above, this is the discussion that gave birth to my thesis. I would posit that dreams and visions represent to the Christian community one valid means of receiving divine revelation.


Porter's Watch: The View From The Firehouse, Lynn E. Niedermeier 2010 Western Kentucky University

Porter's Watch: The View From The Firehouse, Lynn E. Niedermeier

Lynn E. Niedermeier

Bowling Green, Kentucky fireman Euclid Porter Dodd (1870-1958) witnessed many changes in the department and the city during his long career. In two record books that are now held in WKU's Special Collections Library, Dodd noted such events as the loss of a beloved fire wagon horse, his own dismissal and rehiring, local and national news, and the death of a young man that just might be the source of a popular Western Kentucky University ghost story.

Benefits And Challenges Of Mpa Strategies, Caitlyn Toropova, Richard Kenchington, Marjo Vierros, Imen Meliane

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

During the 1950s and early 1960s, as coastal and marine ecosystems became increasingly degraded by human activities and heavily exploited by fishing, the calls for management and protection of the marine environments and resources became more stressing. The iinternational community started to develop a response to the need for effective conservation and management of coastal and marine systems. National and global policies were developed around concepts of integrated marine resources and environmental management, and were fostered by several international initiatives, including the United Naitons Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm in 1972. (United Nations 1972), the protracted negotiations ...


A Seabed Scramble: A Global Overview Of Extended Continental Shelf Submissions, Robert van de Poll, Clive Schofield 2010 Fugro

A Seabed Scramble: A Global Overview Of Extended Continental Shelf Submissions, Robert Van De Poll, Clive Schofield

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Early 2009 saw a flurry of submissions of information on proposed outer continental shelf limits to the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). It is evident that many of these submissions overlap with one another where neighbouring States are located on shared continental margins, thereby giving rise to multiple „new‟ outer continental shelf boundaries and, it would appear, potential outer continental shelf boundary disputes. The paper provides a global overview of the impact of extended continental shelf submissions. These substantial „additional‟ areas of continental shelf may contain valuable seabed resources, including hydrocarbons. However, development of ...
