History And Treatment Of Mental Illness In The United States, Jennifer Anderson-Malingo Apr 2006

History And Treatment Of Mental Illness In The United States, Jennifer Anderson-Malingo

Nursing Undergraduate Theses

The history of mental illness in the United States includes treatment that has varied from misunderstanding to death. In the past, society has ostracized, tortured, ridiculed, and killed those with mental illness. Even today, social stigma can be devastating not only for the individuals, but also for the family. Treatments have varied, from surgical lobotomy, electroconvulsive shock, pharmacological modalities, to alternative therapies. With each new therapy, and more physiological understanding, there is hope for societal stigma to disappear in the future. The purpose of this thesis was to explore treatments, beliefs, stigmas, and institutionalization at Warm Springs. As nurses, there ...

The Effect Of Gender On Interest In Gender-Related Topics: A Survey Of 500 Carroll College Students And A Proposal For A Gender Studies Minor, Nicole Smith Apr 2006

The Effect Of Gender On Interest In Gender-Related Topics: A Survey Of 500 Carroll College Students And A Proposal For A Gender Studies Minor, Nicole Smith

Psychology Undergraduate Theses

Gender plays an important part in determining our attitudes about sexuality and other gender-specific topics. Due to the socialization of children at a young age, gender norms are established that affect how we behave and think about our gender and our sexuality. A survey of 500 Carroll College students was conducted to examine the interest level of Carroll students in obtaining a Gender Studies minor and/or enrolling in a Human Sexuality course if such options were available at Carroll. The hypothesis states that there will be differences in responses between men and women regarding topics specific to gender and ...


Putting The World Correctly: Wittgenstein's Conception Of Aesthetics And The Philosophy Of Language, John Gleaves Apr 2006

Putting The World Correctly: Wittgenstein's Conception Of Aesthetics And The Philosophy Of Language, John Gleaves

Philosophy Undergraduate Theses

This essay begins with the claim the reader must grant the author: no person is without a past. Yet the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein has often been split into two distinct periods of thought titled “The Early Wittgenstein” and “The Later Wittgenstein” as ifthere was no development from one period to the next, thus removing his past as a source of development for his later philosophy. It is as if some Wittgenstein scholars wish to view the later work as spontaneously growing out of nothing, void of any school ofthought or influence. And Wittgenstein has not helped. The time between his ...


The Dying Gods, Julia Yates Apr 2006

The Dying Gods, Julia Yates

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

Abstract: Part One of a fantasy series inspired by Plato, Eric Voegelin, and Friedrich Nietzsche’s Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music, among others. A god is dead, murdered by his fellow gods. Driven by their new-found fear of death, the gods plunge their countries into war. Two young goat herders, Mosy and Nuse, find themselves in the thick of it. As war approaches, the two struggle with each other and with their own problems: Mosy is newly blind, the result of an encounter with a god, while Nuse wrestles with strange dreams and forgotten memories. With ...


If Words Be The Food Of Love, Speak On: A Theory Of Consumptive Language And Its Application To Edmund Spenser’S The Faerie Queene, Amanda Taylor Apr 2006

If Words Be The Food Of Love, Speak On: A Theory Of Consumptive Language And Its Application To Edmund Spenser’S The Faerie Queene, Amanda Taylor

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

My undergraduate thesis explores the implications of consumption related rhetoric, references to eating, stomach, and digestion etc., within the context of Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. I begin by developing my own theory and explain the basis by showing the connection between consumptive rhetoric and sexual attraction as defined by psychoanalytic theory. With this foundation, I link consumptive rhetoric and its sexual implications to linguistic writings about speech acts. Essentially, I argue that instances of consumptive rhetoric are speech acts that commit a sexual action with all the implications carried by an action, not a word alone. Within the ...

Hardy And God: Tess Of The D'Urberville's Role As The Ultimate Pawn, Georgia Hamann Apr 2006

Hardy And God: Tess Of The D'Urberville's Role As The Ultimate Pawn, Georgia Hamann

Senior Honors Theses

Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D 'Urbervilles has multiple competing claims which are difficult to reconcile within the schools ofhist0l1cal, feminist, or classical criticism. A better way to approach the novel is to look at Tess as a pawn within Hardy's own struggle with God. Hardy constructs God as the author of the multiple systems which lead to Tess' final doom: a flawed genetic line, a flawed sexual double standard, and a flawed system of justice. Tess, in Hardy's mind, becomes the victim of a God who is akin to the deity of Greek playwright Aeschylus' Prometheus ...

And I Will Open And Close My Petals, Molly M. Mclay '06 Apr 2006

And I Will Open And Close My Petals, Molly M. Mclay '06

Honors Projects

I have found that poetry provides not only a space for the articulation of voice, but also a space for vocal play. Unlike spaces containing singular, masterful voices, poetic space can be poly-vocal. Much more than the voice of a critical essay, the voices of poems can dream, argue, create, question, collide, sometimes all at the same time, in new and relevant ways. While some poems function with linearity and mastery-they make arguments and stick to them--others employ a more sensing, associative language. Some navigate the space between such states, or take on both at the same time, and still ...
