Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin 2009 Dartmouth College

Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin

Dr. Jonna C Mackin

This introduction to my book about comedy seeks to establish who I am as a writer of a book about comedy and about ethnicity. It then goes on to explain why comedy, identity and desire so often are linked by referencing theories of Diana Fuss and Homi Bhabha as well as Sigmund Freud on comedy.

A Brief History Of The American Fish Culture Company 1877-1997., Michael A. Rice 2009 University of Rhode Island

A Brief History Of The American Fish Culture Company 1877-1997., Michael A. Rice

Michael A Rice

The American Fish Culture Company operated for nearly 120 years from 1877-1997 in Carolina, Rhode Island growing three species of trout under the under the direction of several generations of the Hazard family of Peace Dale, Rhode Island. The company was one of the first trout producers in the United States, and was considered the largest fish farm in the country by the early 1920s. Major innovations of the company included early adoption of pelleted feeds, and the introduction of photoperiod manipulation to spawn fish out of season. The company ultimately failed due to intense competition from larger producers in ...

The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, Asafa Jalata 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

First, the paper explains how some political achievements without strong organizational and institutional structures have increased political crises in the Oromo national movement. Second, it identifies and explores external and internal factors that have hampered the development of the Oromo national consensus. Third, it suggests what Oromo activists and political organizations should do to overcome their ideological and political weaknesses and political ineptness to develop a national declaration that will be the central guiding principle of the Oromo national movement for human liberation and sovereignty in Oromia and beyond.


Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges 2009 Stanford University

Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

In this course, we will examine how language and society affect each other. We will place a significant focus on language use in our own society to explore regional and social differences in speech. We will examine the attitudes and ideologies people have about languages, language varieties, and their speakers (e.g. issues of prestige and stigma). We will explore how speakers use language to construct identities and interact with different audiences. And we will examine how language itself often becomes a political issue (e.g. in debates over language and education). The course will use a mixture of lectures ...

The Lu Lore Tradition, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Lu Lore Tradition, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

I here define an information transmission mode, distinct from both the orally transmitted and the written text, and demonstrate its variability over time. “Confucius” in Analects (LY) 5:15-24 comments on several figures from his own and earlier times. I see these figures as part of an 05c Lu elite lore tradition. By “lore tradition” I mean a body of information having no fixed textual form, either written or oral, propagated by contact within a group. I will study the stability of this tradition by considering it at three points: (1) the Chun/Chyou (CC) chronicle (0721-0479), (2) the LY ...

The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye 2009 University of Massachusetts Boston

The African Roots Of Michael Echeruo’S Poetry: A Close-Reading Of ‘Sophia’, Chukwuma Azuonye

Chukwuma Azuonye

This paper argues that, contrary to widespread opinion, the poetry of first generation, postcolonial, modernist Nigerian poet, Michael J. C. Echeruo, draws some of its core and defining tropes from indigenous African system of thought and symbolism. The much maligned early poem "Sophia" is subjected to line-by-line close-reading to illustrate this argument. The analysis suggests that, as a matter of fact, "Sophia" can be read as a portal to Echeruo's poetic corpus as a whole.

Achebe's Igbo Poems: Oral Traditional Resources And The Process Of ‘Deschooling’ In Modern African Poetics, Chukwuma Azuonye 2009 University of Massachusetts Boston

Achebe's Igbo Poems: Oral Traditional Resources And The Process Of ‘Deschooling’ In Modern African Poetics, Chukwuma Azuonye

Chukwuma Azuonye

The present paper examines the diction, imagery and other features of language and style in Chinua Achebe's two Igbo poems ("Uno Onwu Okigbo" and "Akuko Kpulu Uwa Iru"). Disposing of charges of plagiarism levied on Achebe on account of his modeling of the poems on well-known Igbo folk songs, the paper argues that what is rather involved in the compositional process is a process of "deschooling" from the strictures of European or Eurocentric conventions of versification. It concludes that a process of "deschooling" of this kind is one way in which African writers can begin their journey back with ...


Gender Differences In The Correlates Of Volunteering And Charitable Giving, Christopher J. Einolf 2009 DePaul University

Gender Differences In The Correlates Of Volunteering And Charitable Giving, Christopher J. Einolf

Christopher J Einolf

Psychological research has found that women score higher on most measures of the traits, motivations, and values that predict helping others, and women are more likely to help family and friends. However, sex differences in the institutional helping behaviors of volunteering and charitable giving are small. This paper seeks to explain this apparent contradiction with the hypotheses that men have more resources and more social capital than women, which compensates for their lower level of motivation. The paper tests these hypotheses using data from the 1995 Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) survey. The data show partial support for these ...

The History And Historiography Of Jyw, A. Taeko Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The History And Historiography Of Jyw, A. Taeko Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

Non-Sinitic Jyw was located at 35 35’ N, 118! 50’ E, east of the Lu capital and astride the upper Shu River valley, the major north/south route to the lowlands of eastern Chi. Jyw appears often in the Lu chronicle Chun/Chyou (CC), but it was not one of the great states of the age. I here compare the treatment of Jyw in the CC, which acknowledges it routinely, and in the Dzwo Jwan (DJ), which reshapes Jyw into a textbook example of misrule and deserved destruction.


Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec

Elizabeth Brabec

Although much has been written about slave life in the antebellum south, comparatively little is understood about the physical setting of slave communities and their day-to-day life. Due to the lack of written documentation and few sketches, paintings or other images, the documentation of the physical setting of slave life is more difficult to compile than that of the plantation owners or even indentured servants. By completing a structured analysis of existing documentary evidence for a specific region of the South, the low country of South Carolina, the myths and realities of slave life in this region can be clarified ...
