White Skin And White Masquerades: The Performativity Of “Whiteness” At Trinity College, Alican A. Koc 2014 Western University

White Skin And White Masquerades: The Performativity Of “Whiteness” At Trinity College, Alican A. Koc

Totem: The University of Western Ontario Journal of Anthropology

Trinity College has gained a reputation as a predominantly white elite institution over its years at the University of Toronto. Using both personal accounts from a member of the college, as well as participant observation based on three months of research, this essay attempts to understand how the college maintains its legacy as a white institution despite its existence in a supposedly multicultural university environment. Drawing upon Judith Butler's theory of performativity, the essay describes how "whiteness" is constructed through a reiteration of acts rather than on race or colour in the context of Trinity College.


From Academia To The Mainstream - Food Has Many Colors, Hanna Rosman 2014 Iowa State University

From Academia To The Mainstream - Food Has Many Colors, Hanna Rosman

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Within the past couple of years, conversations about the agricultural industry and determining what is fair for consumers along with farmworkers has entered public discourse because of items such as the Farm Bill. These movements discuss monetary hardships and creating sustainable food systems, but what is lacking from the conversation is the issue of race, culture, and space in determining how to support farmers and feed America. In Cultivating Food Justice, editors Alison Hope Alkon and Julian Agyeman compile work from numerous researchers that analyzes and challenges current food systems that enable social inequalities from producer to consumer.


Revolution Or Reform: Contradictions Within The Ideology And Actions Of The Black Panther Party, 1969-1970, Jana Cary-Alvarez 2014 University of Puget Sound

Revolution Or Reform: Contradictions Within The Ideology And Actions Of The Black Panther Party, 1969-1970, Jana Cary-Alvarez

Honors Program Theses

Surprisingly limited scholarship exists on the Black Panther Party, and much of that scholarship has an extremely divided view of the Party; either the Party is separatist or built alliances, either the Party is revolutionary or reformist. By studying the Black Panther newspaper in the year 1969, "The Year of the Panther," it becomes clear that the Party was all of these things. The party created alliances with a wide variety of groups while maintaining that they were a Black Power organization. It practiced revolutionary Communism while advocating reform of the American system. In short, the Black Panther Party was ...


X: Poems & Anti-Poems By Shane Rhodes, Tom Miller 2014 Wilfrid Laurier University

X: Poems & Anti-Poems By Shane Rhodes, Tom Miller

The Goose

A review of Shane Rhodes' X: Poems & Anti-Poems. This review focuses on the link between language and landscape, and considers the ways in which that link, reflected in Rhodes' work, comments upon the use of language as an oppressive tool in the treatment of Native Americans and Canadians.


Skin Bleaching In South Africa: A Result Of Colonialism And Apartheid?, Nahomie Julien 2014 Georgia State University

Skin Bleaching In South Africa: A Result Of Colonialism And Apartheid?, Nahomie Julien

DISCOVERY: Georgia State Honors College Undergraduate Research Journal

South Africans have not overcome many of the psychological effects of apartheid and colonialism, some of which are self-hatred and low self-esteem. These negative psychosomatic influences often push people to alter their physical appearance to feel better about themselves, and one of the most common methods of doing so is by bleaching the skin(Abrahams, 2000; Charles, 2003; Singham, 1968). Skin bleaching, the application of topical creams, gels, soaps, and household products (e.g., toothpaste, bleach, washing powder, battery acid) to lighten the skin, has become one of the most common forms of potentially harmful body modification practices in the ...


Voices Made (M)Other, Lizbett Benge 2014 University of Washington Tacoma

Voices Made (M)Other, Lizbett Benge

Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences Master's Projects and Theses

Voices Made (M)other is a theatrical project I created consisting of two original short plays, Momologues and ILL. This interdisciplinary project combines motherhood studies, feminist studies, whiteness studies, and theatre. One cannot have political change without revolutionizing each individual; and so I am sharing the process behind creating ILL, an autobiographical play tracing events throughout my motherline, to demonstrate the ways in which this project has helped create a more nuanced version of motherhood that incorporates mental illness, maternal abuse, and healing from trauma. This project builds upon the theory of empowered mothering (O’Reilly, 2006) by which society ...


Nativos Migrantes: Poesía En La Encrucijada, Juan Sanchez 2014 Western University

Nativos Migrantes: Poesía En La Encrucijada, Juan Sanchez

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Aquí ofrezco un encuentro entre saberes a partir de siete autores contemporáneos cuyas obras han sido fraguadas en las cinco direcciones de América: Humberto Ak’abal, Jaime Luis Huenún, Odi Gonzales, David Aniñir, Hugo Jamioy, Vito Apüshana y Rayen Kvyeh. Este corpus responde a dos razones: la conexión entre las migraciones (físicas o literarias) de los poetas y la forma en que sus libros modelan poéticas con un alto grado de experimentación; y la posibilidad de construir con estas obras un diálogo transfronterizo.

En contraposición a la idea de la literatura como objeto de estudio, propongo que la poesía es ...


Akedah, The Holocaust, And The Limits Of The Law In Roth's "Eli, The Fanatic", Aimee L. Pozorski 2014 Purdue University

Akedah, The Holocaust, And The Limits Of The Law In Roth's "Eli, The Fanatic", Aimee L. Pozorski

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Akedah, the Holocaust, and the Limits of the Law in Roth's 'Eli, the Fanatic'" Aimee L. Pozorski argues that Philip Roth's 1957 short story dramatizes the tension between the law on the one hand and the philosophy of ethics, on the other hand with the story's protagonist ultimately choosing ethics as evidenced by his identification with a displaced Hasidic Jew near the story's end. In reading the story through the inter-textual references to the Genesis story of the Akedah, Pozorski discusses the limits of the law in the face of vulnerable children and ...


Feeling Neoliberal : The Politics Of Affect In The Age Of Greed = 新自由感覺 : 貪婪年代的情感政治, Lisa DUGGAN 2014 Lingnan University

Feeling Neoliberal : The Politics Of Affect In The Age Of Greed = 新自由感覺 : 貪婪年代的情感政治, Lisa Duggan

《新自由主義下的新道德》研討會 NEO-MORALISM UNDER NEOLIBERALISM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Genealogies of neoliberalism generally trace the intellectual and institutional histories of ideas and policies from Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman, through the global practices of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. But consent for neoliberal practices is generated as much through invocations of fantasy and feeling as through ideas and institutions. This lecture will trace the paths of neoliberal feeling through the persistent fantasies of racial colonialism, to the gendered practices of marital kinship and entrepreneurial desire. Neomoralism's many variations will be examined as central projects in the continuing global afterlife of neoliberal affect.

一般認為,新自由主義的歷史系譜,係海耶克與傅利曼的論點 ...


Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes 2014 Dickinson College

Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes

Honors Theses By Year

Ves una foto: un grupo de unos jóvenes asiáticos, todos vestidos con ropa que indica que son turistas (las camisetas rojas con la palabra, “London” escrito bajo una imagen de la bandera británica) posando con un libro. Al mirar con más detenimiento, observas que el libro lleva un título chocante: Maldito chino. Esta imagen, que está disponible en la página de Facebook de Paco López Mengual, el autor de Maldito chino, lleva una descripción que explica que esos jóvenes, en vez de sentirse ofendidos por el título y el argumento de la novela, tienen ganas de “saludar” al autor. Las ...


Implicit Prejudice And Its Implications For How Communities Should Respond To Racial Injustices, Harry Kainen 2014 Washington University in St. Louis

Implicit Prejudice And Its Implications For How Communities Should Respond To Racial Injustices, Harry Kainen

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

In the spring of 2013, a racially controversial incident occurred on the Washington University Campus. The incident raised questions about the racial tolerance of the university community as well as exactly who should be held responsible for the injustice. Most importantly, the community’s response to the incident exemplified how a community with the potential for substantial collective action can fail to mobilize and improve when they are called upon to do so. This paper examines recent psychological research that studies the existence of subconscious racial prejudices in order to examine its implications in community responses to racial injustices. Results ...


Toward A Transnational Queer Futurity: The Photography Of Catherine Opie, Zanele Muholi, And Jean Brundrit, Camille Erickson 2014 Macalester College

Toward A Transnational Queer Futurity: The Photography Of Catherine Opie, Zanele Muholi, And Jean Brundrit, Camille Erickson

Art and Art History Honors Projects

North American photographer Catherine Opie and South African photographers Zanele Muholi and Jean Brundrit create art that documents the lived experiences of queer and LGBTI-identified individuals and communities. Although their varying geographic and cultural specificities contribute to diverse representations, this research applies a queer transnational methodology to analyze how each artist uses the body as a site for re-visualizing queer identities. Employing cultural theorist, José Esteban Muñoz’s conception of a queer futurity reveals how these artistic projects resist the majoritarian politics of the present and envision potential utopian spaces of transformation. By embracing collectivity, belonging, and difference, the photographs ...


The Specter Of Intolerance: Understanding Religious Violence In Pakistan, Syeda Haider 2014 University of Connecticut

The Specter Of Intolerance: Understanding Religious Violence In Pakistan, Syeda Haider

Honors Scholar Theses

The role of religion in Pakistani political and civil life has had a defining role in the political development of the nation. The country is now a breeding ground for religious extremism, with militant groups conducting brutal attacks against the Shia, Ahmedi, Christian and Hindu communities of Pakistan. There have been few explanations attempting to describe the problem of religious violence domestically, within Pakistan’s borders towards Pakistani citizens. This essay examines how, despite Pakistan’s initial conception as a secular state, the country has become haunted by intense religious violence. It links the lack of consensus around national identity ...


Human Disease - Unintended Globalization, Christopher J. Dellana '14 2014 Gettysburg College

Human Disease - Unintended Globalization, Christopher J. Dellana '14

Celebration

Before man was exchanging goods and ideas, he was exchanging germs. As such, the spread of infectious disease constitutes the first truly global phenomenon and, therefore, marks the beginnings—primitive though they may have been—of what today we have finally termed ‘globalization.’ The global spread of disease, then, proves that globalization is not new and that its origins were the result of a different narrative than the ones we read from globalization theorists; it further demonstrates that the modern conception of the phenomenon is only now so well recognized because the accelerated and efficient processes that inform its daily ...


The Effects Of American Involvement In Northern Uganda's Conflict With The Lord's Resistance Army, Karen J. Norris '14 2014 Gettysburg College

The Effects Of American Involvement In Northern Uganda's Conflict With The Lord's Resistance Army, Karen J. Norris '14

Celebration

This project explores the impact of American governmental and non-governmental actors in the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) conflict in northern Uganda and southern Sudan, particularly the U.S. military, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and various non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It also examines the efficacy of these various forms of intervention, specifically the deployment of U.S. Special Forces tracking the LRA, and the initiation of various soldier reintegration, governance, and sustainability programs organized by USAID and NGOs such as Invisible Children. Additionally, this project seeks to uncover underlying geopolitical objectives, such as gaining alliances in the 'Global ...


When Parties Swap Platforms: The Changing Racial Policies Of Democrats And Republicans, charles o. boyd 2014 Kennesaw State University

When Parties Swap Platforms: The Changing Racial Policies Of Democrats And Republicans, Charles O. Boyd

Oglethorpe Journal of Undergraduate Research

This article examines the shift in the Democratic and Republican parties with regard to the rights of African Americans. Debunking partisan distortions of history on both sides, "When Parties Swap Platforms" demonstrates that prior to the 1960s, the Republican Party was more supportive of African Americans' rights and that during the 1960s, the Democratic Party became the more supportive institution. Evidence is also provided showing that Hubert Humphrey played a much larger role in changing the Democratic Party's stance on civil rights than is commonly known.


Ella Deloria: A Dakota Woman’S Journey Between An Old World And A New, Susana Dalena Geliga-Grazales 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Ella Deloria: A Dakota Woman’S Journey Between An Old World And A New, Susana Dalena Geliga-Grazales

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research, Department of History

The subject of this thesis is a Yankton Dakota Sioux woman named Ella Cara Deloria who lived from 1889 to 1972. The intent of this thesis is to use her own construct of an educated Indigenous woman to examine her personal and professional life as a middle figure between a world of Dakota traditionalism and a modern academic arena during an era of intellectual curiosity about Native Americans. She flowed between these worlds to become a distinguished author and accomplished Dakota woman who built bridges of understanding between cultures. Ella initially set out to follow the patriarchs in her family ...


Black Radicals And Marxist Internationalism: From The Iwma To The Fourth International, 1864-1948, Charles R. Holm 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Black Radicals And Marxist Internationalism: From The Iwma To The Fourth International, 1864-1948, Charles R. Holm

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research, Department of History

This project investigates historical relationships between Black Radicalism and Marxist internationalism from the mid-nineteenth through the first half of the twentieth century. It argues that contrary to scholarly accounts that emphasize Marxist Euro-centrism, or that theorize the incompatibility of “Black” and “Western” radical projects, Black Radicals helped shape and produce Marxist theory and political movements, developing theoretical and organizational innovations that drew on both Black Radical and Marxist traditions of internationalism. These innovations were produced through experiences of struggle within international political movements ranging from the abolition of slavery in the nineteenth century to the early Pan-African movements and struggles ...
