The Resilience Of Female Survivors Of Intimate Partner Violence In Southwest Nigeria: An Interdisciplinary Analysis, Tobi F. Oloyede 2020 East Tennessee State University

The Resilience Of Female Survivors Of Intimate Partner Violence In Southwest Nigeria: An Interdisciplinary Analysis, Tobi F. Oloyede

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Female survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) in Nigeria endure harsh and traumatic experiences that affect their rights as women and their well-being. As the phenomenon of IPV persists in Nigeria, it is not only a family problem but a critical social and psychological problem. This study examined Nigerian female survivors’ hidden strength, agency, and resilience, rather than their powerlessness and vulnerability. Analysis of survey questionnaires, interviews, and secondary scholarship reveals that some Nigerian female survivors of IPV are able to cope whilst navigating stressful and traumatic experiences. The results also show that survivors’ ability to thrive and cope under ...

The Dark, Selfish Thief: The Image Of Vishnu In Social Justice Movements, Sree Maha Vedala 2020 Millsaps College

The Dark, Selfish Thief: The Image Of Vishnu In Social Justice Movements, Sree Maha Vedala

The Macksey Journal

Whether we identify ourselves or our societies as being secular or religious, it cannot be denied that from the simplest forms of speech to pressing ethical concerns, numerous aspects of our daily lives and our very selves are influenced by religion. Radical religious tendencies point to overwhelmingly negative events throughout the course of history and the establishment of social norms which are questioned by society today; however, religion can be just as much a uniting phenomenon that calls for the questioning of these arbitrary norms and pushes for liberation. This project builds on the use of religious images— particularly the ...

Black Sanity: Understanding Mental Health Diagnoses Post Emancipation, Victoria E. Robertson 2020 Dillard University

Black Sanity: Understanding Mental Health Diagnoses Post Emancipation, Victoria E. Robertson

The Macksey Journal

In the years following emancipation, something peculiar was observed in the mental state of Black Americans: they were going insane in large numbers. What was once a rarity was growing to become an epidemic. Nineteenth century psychiatric specialists believed that freedom was the culprit behind the rising rate of insanity in Black Americans. The purpose of this work is to examine the arguments of why freedom caused insanity in Black Americans, and how the increasing diagnosis of insanity post emancipation was used to aid discrimination. Knowledge of this segment of psychology’s history is crucial to understanding how the treatment ...


Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences In Racial And Ethnic Groups: Findings From A Diverse University Sample, Jasmine Kim Collard, Melissa Ponce-Rodas 2020 Andrews University

Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences In Racial And Ethnic Groups: Findings From A Diverse University Sample, Jasmine Kim Collard, Melissa Ponce-Rodas

The Macksey Journal

Studies to examine how adverse childhood events impact adult health have been pioneered by Vincent Felitti (1998) and replicated time and time again. However, the extant literature has given little attention to the role of culture in experiencing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's) and understanding their impact. In the few studies examining racial differences, White children have been found to have a lower ACE score compared to non-White children (Maguire-Jack, Lanier, & Lombardi, 2019), and Black and Hispanic children have been exposed to two or more adversities than their White counterparts (Slopen, et. al., 2016). Mersky and Janczewski (2018) also found ...

Precarity In Feminism And Feminist Art Education: Decentering Whiteness Through Reproductive Justice Activism, Michelle Bae-Dimitriadis, Olga Ivashkevich 2020 The Pennsylvania State University

Precarity In Feminism And Feminist Art Education: Decentering Whiteness Through Reproductive Justice Activism, Michelle Bae-Dimitriadis, Olga Ivashkevich

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The article addresses precarity in mainstream feminism and feminist art education as a systemic dismissal and exclusion of the critical concerns and voices by disenfranchised women of color from its narratives and agendas. It draws on a case of the reproductive justice feminist activism to illustrate how the mainstream pro-choice feminist movement neglected the urgent and often life threatening reproductive concerns by Black, Brown, Indigenous and immigrant women, which led to an establishment of the reproductive justice coalitions by activists of color. The reproductive justice movement is an important call to action to challenge and decenter Whiteness in mainstream feminism ...


Rondo Days, Kellian Clink 2020 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Rondo Days, Kellian Clink

Library Services Faculty and Staff Publications

The Rondo Days Festival, inaugurated in 1983, is a reunion of the Black community of the Twin Cities. It memorializes and mourns a neighborhood gone, a neighborhood where residents “learned to fill the gaps in American history (Fairbanks 1999, 141), learned about the contributions and tribulations of their people. The celebration remembers when the creation of I-94 meant the destruction of a vibrant neighborhood, moving hundreds of families from a community of truly gracious homes to “substandard housing with bad wiring” (Baker 1994). Rondo Days celebrates a sense of community sustained in defiance of institutional racism and urban planning run ...

Human Development and Family Studies Publications

Background and Objectives: Over the years, a large amount of research has been devoted to the investigation of factors that led to mental health outcomes in older adults. For African American older adults, their lived experiences place them at high risk for mental health problems. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of early life influences (i.e., education, childhood life events and childhood financial well-being) and present psychosocial resources (i.e., individual, financial, and social) on current mental health outcomes in a sample of African-American older adults in their 60s, 80s and 100s.

La Mano E Il Braccio: Comparing Italian Immigrant Communities In Louisiana And Florida, 1880-1914, Keith Richards 2020 University of Central Florida

La Mano E Il Braccio: Comparing Italian Immigrant Communities In Louisiana And Florida, 1880-1914, Keith Richards

The Macksey Journal

Italian immigration patterns to Louisiana and Tampa, FL have received a good deal of scholarly attention as two separate phenomena, but they are better understood as informing one another in the evolution of southern thought in regard to Italian immigrants. Italians were the second largest non-black minority group behind Mexicans to be lynched, and in understanding the circumstances surrounding those acts of extrajudicial violence, a pattern is apparent. Lynchings of Italians in Louisiana emerged out of fear of the Black Hand (La Mano Nera), and the Mafia, whereas the sole incident of an Italian being lynched in Tampa occurred as ...


Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogeneity In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr 2020 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogeneity In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr

The Macksey Journal

The idea of a need for oneness in the black community at large has been unrefuted and celebrated. This notion has been supported by many popular figures and paradigms, in particular, the Pan Africanism paradigm, which calls for the unity of all black people regardless of origin, on all levels and aspects of life. In this research the author aims to show that the assumption of homogeneity in the black community is the root of tensions in the black community between African Americans and black immigrants. Through an autoethnography, the researcher a black immigrant living in America argues that negating ...


Ascendance And Transformation: Humanizing Trio First Generation Students Of Color And Their Stem Empowerment Agents, Vanessa Nicole Torres 2020 University of California, Irvine

Ascendance And Transformation: Humanizing Trio First Generation Students Of Color And Their Stem Empowerment Agents, Vanessa Nicole Torres

The Macksey Journal

The TRIO program has the ability to mentor Black and Latinx students of color into pathways that can minimize the gap in educational attainment. Stanton-Salazar (2011) explains how mentorship in the form of empowerment agents among working-class students of color furthers their access to institutional support that is empowering for them in combination with their critical consciousness as they navigate STEM as a field and career choice (as cited in V. Pendakur, 2016). In other words, a mentor becomes a tool for action for this student population to transform themselves and their community. The TRIO STEM educators involved in California ...


They’Ll Only Stop Killin’ Us, If You Say Please: The Role Of #Blacklivesmatter, Black Twitter, And Flint, Michigan In Modern Day Respectability Politics, Chasia Elzina Jeffries 2020 University of Southern California

They’Ll Only Stop Killin’ Us, If You Say Please: The Role Of #Blacklivesmatter, Black Twitter, And Flint, Michigan In Modern Day Respectability Politics, Chasia Elzina Jeffries

The Macksey Journal

Respectability politics, which require Black folks to make ourselves as non-confrontational, palatable, and white as possible, pressing our hair, pulling up our pants, and speaking properly are a lasting remnant of the diligent work of Black women during the Jim Crow Era to ensure social uplift and Black survival. This project traces the history of Black women in the development of performative survival and highlights our position and the efficacy of code-switching today, primarily through the Flint Water Crisis. As Black Americans refuse to conform to white standards, becoming more and more proud of our Blackness and as innocent Black ...


Grand Challenge No. 1: Truth And Reconciliation Archaeological Pedagogy, Indigenous Histories, And Reconciliation In Canada, Kisha Supernant 2020 University of Alberta

Grand Challenge No. 1: Truth And Reconciliation Archaeological Pedagogy, Indigenous Histories, And Reconciliation In Canada, Kisha Supernant

Journal of Archaeology and Education

In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) released 94 Calls to Action, many of which pertain to education. Archaeological educators are called to find ways to integrate Indigenous knowledge into our classrooms, our teaching methods, and our curriculum at all levels of education. Across Canada, discussions are happening about how to decolonize and Indigenize curriculum, a process which will have significant implications for archaeological pedagogy. Drawing on both the specific text and the overall ethic of the TRC Calls to Action, I explore who teaches archaeology, what is taught, and what that means for archaeological pedagogy in ...


Recalling The (Afro)Future: Collective Memory And The Construction Of Subversive Meanings In Janelle Monáe’S Metropolis-Suites, Anders Liljedahl 2020 University of Copenhagen

Recalling The (Afro)Future: Collective Memory And The Construction Of Subversive Meanings In Janelle Monáe’S Metropolis-Suites, Anders Liljedahl

Third Stone

Focusing on the intersection of collective memory, technology, and African American popular music, this paper use aspects of the sonic narratives in Janelle Monáe’s Metropolis-Suites I–V to introduce core concepts of Afrofuturism. The paper challenges the positioning of collective memory as being exterior to the sphere of individual cognitive memory. By inhabiting past, present, and future at once, Afrofuturism is able to critically revisit collective memory not only as a social framework but also as actual individual memory. Afrofuturist discourse questions the status of the human being by examining African Americans as always already robotic, and posits ...


To Protect And To Serve: Effects Of The Relationship Between The Brown Berets And Law Enforcement, Paul Flores 2020 CSUSB

To Protect And To Serve: Effects Of The Relationship Between The Brown Berets And Law Enforcement, Paul Flores

History in the Making

During the late 1960s and into the early 1970s the Brown Berets were heavily involved in the Chicano Movement. They formed as a group of students with the goal of reforming the inequalities Hispanic people faced within the Los Angeles school system, though the greater circumstances quickly led the Brown Berets into the direction of being a militant organization with their focus shifting to police brutality and the Vietnam War. As a result of this shift they became an enemy of the local police and later the federal government. Thus, the Berets adopted the motto, “To Serve, Observe, and Protect ...

Making The Case For Genocide, The Forced Sterilization Of Indigenous Peoples Of Peru, Ñusta P. Carranza Ko 2020 University of Baltimore

Making The Case For Genocide, The Forced Sterilization Of Indigenous Peoples Of Peru, Ñusta P. Carranza Ko

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

Peru’s national health program Programa de Salud Reproductiva y Planificación Familiar (PSRPF) aimed to uphold women’s reproductive rights and address the scarcity in maternity related services. Despite these objectives, during PSRPF’s implementation the respect for women’s rights were undermined with the forced sterilization of women predominantly of indigenous, poor, and rural backgrounds. This study considers the forced sterilization of indigenous women as a genocide. Making the case for genocide has not been done previously with this particular case. Using the normative markers of the Genocide Convention, this study categorically sets forced sterilization victims from the state-led-policy ...


Ecocide Is Genocide: Decolonizing The Definition Of Genocide, Lauren J. Eichler 2020 Old Dominion University

Ecocide Is Genocide: Decolonizing The Definition Of Genocide, Lauren J. Eichler

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

I demonstrate how the destruction of the land, water, and nonhuman beings of the Americas constitutes genocide according to Indigenous metaphysics and through analysis of the decimation of the American buffalo. In Genocide Studies, the destruction of nonhuman beings and nature is typically treated as a separate, but related type of phenomenon—ecocide, the destruction of nonhuman nature. In this article I follow in the footsteps of Native American and First Nations scholars to argue that ecocide and the genocide of Indigenous peoples are inextricably linked and are even constitutive of the same act. I argue that if justice is ...
