Apparent Fate, 2010: Dismantling The Notion Of Photographic Truth, Kelsey M. MacDonald 2010 Scripps College

Apparent Fate, 2010: Dismantling The Notion Of Photographic Truth, Kelsey M. Macdonald

Scripps Senior Theses

When creating a current work, artists cannot ignore the images that have preceded theirs. The history of a medium and the related history of subject matter is vital to the meaning of a new art work. Each sign and symbol has a connotation out of the artists’ control. The developed meaning of a symbol is inseparable for the viewer regardless of the acknowledgment of that meaning by the artist. To work with imagery and not address it’s historical context is to perpetuate it’s meaning. The only way to not state what has already been stated is to critically ...


Collective Bargaining In The Era Of Grocery Industry Restructuring, Richard W. Hurd 2010 Cornell University

Collective Bargaining In The Era Of Grocery Industry Restructuring, Richard W. Hurd

Richard W Hurd

[Excerpt] As UFCW international and local leaders know from first hand experience, there have been dramatic changes in the retail grocery industry over the past 15 years. Of most direct relevance to the collective bargaining environment, the absolute size of key corporations has increased and economic power in the industry has become more concentrated. Influenced by the spread of Wal-Mart's grocery operations, established companies like Kroger, Safeway, Supervalu, and Loblaw have pursued aggressive merger and market expansion strategies. Further complicating the situation has been the success of other alternative format grocers (such as Costco, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods ...

Organizing To Win: Introduction, Kate Bronfenbrenner, Sheldon Friedman, Richard W. Hurd, Rudolph A. Oswald, Ronald L. Seeber

Richard W Hurd

[Excerpt] The American labor movement is at a watershed. For the first time since the early years of industrial unionism sixty years ago, there is near-universal agreement among union leaders that the future of the movement depends on massive new organizing. In October 1995, John Sweeney, Richard Trumka, and Linda Chavez-Thompson were swept into the top offices of the AFL-CIO, following a campaign that promised organizing "at an unprecedented pace and scale." Since taking office, the new AFL-CIO leadership team has created a separate organizing department and has committed $20 million to support coordinated large-scale industry-based organizing drives. In addition ...


The Failure Of Organizing, The New Unity Partnership And The Future Of The Labor Movement, Richard W. Hurd 2010 Cornell University

The Failure Of Organizing, The New Unity Partnership And The Future Of The Labor Movement, Richard W. Hurd

Richard W Hurd

[Excerpt] The New Unity Partnership (NUP) has stirred up a firestorm of controversy in union circles. Its inception can be traced to the July 4th holiday in 2003 when five national union presidents gathered for a candid private discussion about the future of the labor movement. The motivation for the summit was concern about the collective inability of unions to reverse their fading fortunes. At this and subsequent meetings the unions considered structural and strategic options to promote union growth, ultimately committing to a form of mutual aid pact to pool resources for coordinated organizing initiatives and to support each ...


Contesting The Dinosaur Image: The Labor Movement’S Search For A Future, Richard W. Hurd 2010 Cornell University

Contesting The Dinosaur Image: The Labor Movement’S Search For A Future, Richard W. Hurd

Richard W Hurd

[Excerpt] But the increased effectiveness of labor's political activities has not resulted in major improvements legislatively, and now there is a hostile President who opposes nearly every aspect of the union policy agenda. The promise for the future lies in the demonstrated ability to mobilize at the grassroots. But there are recent signs that national unions are breaking ranks and pursuing narrow self interest. The USWA joined with the steel industry to persuade the Bush administration to restrict imports, and even hinted at a possible endorsement for his reelection in 2004 (Murray). The UMWA has praised the president's ...

Reforming "Hellenization" Into A Two-Way Street: The Dialectic Of Colonization Between Greeks And Sikels In Eastern Sicily, Dirk Petersen 2010 Macalester College

Reforming "Hellenization" Into A Two-Way Street: The Dialectic Of Colonization Between Greeks And Sikels In Eastern Sicily, Dirk Petersen

Classics Honors Projects

Extensive colonization was a key feature of Greek-speaking societies of the ancient Mediterranean. Diffusion of colonizers likewise led to a diffusion of the colonized, ramifications of which pepper extant literature. Rather than acknowledging these groups’ multi-vocality, Classical scholarship traditionally discusses their relationship employing the one-sided term, “Hellenization.” Even those interested in the experiences of the colonized often employ concepts such as appropriation and assimilation in their discussions. Rejecting these approaches, this paper employs a case study of Greek colonization in eastern Sicily to seek, instead, a dialectic, a lens to account for the nuances of pluralism inherent in these interactions.


Body As Battleground: Feminine Prophecy And Identity In The Ancient Mediterranean, Daniel M. Picus 2010 Macalester College

Body As Battleground: Feminine Prophecy And Identity In The Ancient Mediterranean, Daniel M. Picus

Classics Honors Projects

Women who spoke with the voice of divinity existed in the literature and mythologies of many cultures across the ancient Mediterranean. This paper examines six of these prophetesses from ancient Greek and Jewish traditions. It shows that prophecy is an experience deeply rooted in conceptions of the human body and “femininity.” By studying prophetesses in this light, I conclude that their bodies become battlegrounds for individual identities which may otherwise be subsumed by the god for whom they prophesy.


The Definitive Guide To The Downfall Of P&W, Alice M. Anigacz 2010 Macalester College

The Definitive Guide To The Downfall Of P&W, Alice M. Anigacz

English Honors Projects

This honors thesis is a fictional work that tells of the downfall of P&W DNA. It utilizes multiple narrators, including a blonde bombshell, a deceptive recent P&W hire, and a rabbit, to show how a combination of flawed personalities led to the demise of a corrupt DNA testing company. The plot mostly follows Aaron Kelley, a P&W-agent-cum-detective, who is attempting to avenge his partner’s death by taking down gubernatorial candidate Lyle Saunders. Combining elements of classic noir with a modern comical tone and a mixture of voices, this work asks the question: does the truth really ...


The Gala, Anna R. Joranger 2010 Macalester College

The Gala, Anna R. Joranger

English Honors Projects

This honors thesis is an extended work of fiction, in which I utilize the dystopian or anti-utopian genre to explore themes of alternate social realities and the complexities of human, especially inter-family, relationships. The near-future society depicted in this novella attempts to eliminate personal agency and decision-making by replacing it with random chance; marriage matches, housing decisions, and careers are all blindly selected out of a box by each citizen. The story follows 22-year-old Lily Pierce as she completes her Gala, or marriage ceremony, and experiences the trials of life in a society that claims itself as a utopia.


You And Me Baby Ain't Nothing But Mammals: Disgust, Evolution, And The Transcendence Of An Immaterial Soul, Sara G. Gottlieb 2010 Macalester College

You And Me Baby Ain't Nothing But Mammals: Disgust, Evolution, And The Transcendence Of An Immaterial Soul, Sara G. Gottlieb

Psychology Honors Projects

Materialist theories of mind are disturbing for those who endorse the idea that an immortal soul is distinct from the material body. Many argue for a uniqueness of the human spirit that transcends bodily qualities. The present research focuses on the rejection of human evolution from the perspective of disgust, which has both a physical (body) and moral (soul) component and is elicited by objects that remind us of both death and animals. Study 1 asked whether those primed to feel disgusted would show an implicit preference for creationism over evolution on an Implicit Associations Test but failed to find ...


Universality And Its Discontents: The Louvre And Guggenheim Abu Dhabi As A Case Study In The Future Of Museums, Catherine R. Skluzacek 2010 Macalester College

Universality And Its Discontents: The Louvre And Guggenheim Abu Dhabi As A Case Study In The Future Of Museums, Catherine R. Skluzacek

Art and Art History Honors Projects

The contemporary museological community faces increasing competition in the global marketplace to prove its relevance. Accordingly, franchises of leading institutions will now appear in Abu Dhabi, UAE, that approach this problem by presenting art in a comparative international perspective rather than as fragmentary narratives of disparate cultures. Furthermore, shifts in state financial support and the purposes of collecting within museum institutions have led to the adoption of administrative policies like those used by multinational corporations. This new model of museological practice presented by the Louvre and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi resolves the paradox of protecting cultural diversity within universal museums.

The Michael Chekhov Technique: In The Classroom And On Stage, Josh Chenard 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Michael Chekhov Technique: In The Classroom And On Stage, Josh Chenard

Theses and Dissertations

Referred to by Constantin Stanislavski as “My most brilliant pupil,” Michael Chekhov’s approach to acting is founded in an understanding of the artist as a whole being whose thoughts, feelings, desires, voice, and physical body are intimately interwoven. The Michael Chekhov technique trains these aspects jointly while encouraging the actor to fully explore and utilize his or her unlimited, rich, and fertile imagination. I have seen the powerful benefits of this technique as an actor (which I have been utilizing for 13 years) and as a teacher and director (for almost 10 years). In my thesis, I will firstly ...
