"Thirty Thousand Half-Breeds" And "Negroes With Guns": The Violent Formulation Of Race In 1950s North Carolina, Andrew M. Cook Apr 2006

"Thirty Thousand Half-Breeds" And "Negroes With Guns": The Violent Formulation Of Race In 1950s North Carolina, Andrew M. Cook

History Master's Theses

In January of 1958, over a thousand Lumbee Indians of Robeson County, North Carolina dispersed a gathering of one hundred and fifty Ku Klux Klansmen under the leadership of James "Catfish" Cole. In the aftermath, national newspapers and magazines published feature articles applauding the Indian confrontation with the Klan. Only two weeks earlier, Robert F. Williams, president of the Monroe, North Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) had organized an armed confrontation with the Ku Klux Klan that received no national media coverage. The disparity of media attention given to the two events ...

Reconstructing How We Respond To Student Writers: An An Exploratory Study, Bryan Bardine Apr 2006

Reconstructing How We Respond To Student Writers: An An Exploratory Study, Bryan Bardine

English Faculty Publications

This study sought to answer a number of questions. First, how do teachers respond to “successful” and “unsuccessful” writers? Also, how are these responses different? Furthermore, how did the distribution of the types of comments the teachers used affect student understanding of the comments? For instance, were certain types of comments understood more often than others, and what might be the results of such occurrences for student writers? Another objective of this research was to see how well the participating students understood the comments written on their essays, and to determine if there was any difference between how the “successful ...

Contemporary Art In Samoa: The Role Of Personal Expression, Christina Cioffari Apr 2006

Contemporary Art In Samoa: The Role Of Personal Expression, Christina Cioffari

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Contemporary art is a means of creating and recreating the self, a means of self reflection and defining ones identity. Conceptual art that expresses personal ideas and emotions plays a small role in the arts of Samoa, however it does exist in the minds and galleries of a few individuals. The intention of this study is to examine the role that personal expression plays in Samoan society and the artwork created here. The attitudes and approaches to contemporary art was explored, in addition to the underlying causes of those perceptions.

The foundation of this paper evolved out of statements from ...


Sex-Education And Preventative And Contraceptive Services: Educação-Sexual E Serviços Contraceptivos E Preventativos, Elizabeth M. Ortiz Apr 2006

Sex-Education And Preventative And Contraceptive Services: Educação-Sexual E Serviços Contraceptivos E Preventativos, Elizabeth M. Ortiz

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Maternal morbidity is one of the leading causes of death amongst women in Latina America. Lack of access to Reproductive Health services has incited a continental epidemic amongst adolescent women - and should be considered a public health crisis. Yet, there is little being done by the governing male bodies to secure access and the Right to Reproductive Health services. This is not only a means of re-enforcing gendered inequalities- but also class, and racial disparities. Reproductive Health in Brazil and Northeastern Brazil in particular, serves as an allegory for socio-economic, gender, ethnic, and racial inequality in the region. The socio-economic ...

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 ...

Digital Technologies And The Future Of Radio: Lessons From The Canadian Experience, Brian O'Neill Apr 2006

Digital Technologies And The Future Of Radio: Lessons From The Canadian Experience, Brian O'Neill

Conference Papers

This paper reports on an ongoing comparative study of the development of digital radio in Europe and Canada. Focussing on the Eureka 147 Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) platform in Canada, of which it was an early adopter, the paper examines the complex interaction of industry, government regulation and the difficulty of policy formation matching the pace of technology development. Based on interviews with leading radio professionals, the paper presents a critical review of the ‘transitional policy’ towards the digitalisation of radio and examines the international market pressures that led Canada to largely abandon this approach in favour of the current ...

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 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 ...


Fritz Oelshlaeger. Love And Good Reasons: Postliberal Approaches To Christian Ethics And Literature, Alan Blackstock Apr 2006

Fritz Oelshlaeger. Love And Good Reasons: Postliberal Approaches To Christian Ethics And Literature, Alan Blackstock

English Faculty Publications

In the interest of full disclosure, Professor Oehlschlaeger identifies his purpose and intended audience at the outset of the book: "This study seeks to articulate a particular moral vision, a Christian one, and discover what it entails for reading texts." This Christian moral vision is one "marked by the specific convictions of a body of people formed by the history of Israel, Jesus, and the Church" (3), (Oehlschlaeger never specifies which church he means by this, but his appeals to the authority of Pope John Paul II and neo-Thomist philosophers and theologians Alisdair MacIntyre and Stanley Hauerwas are suggestive, as ...


The "Beast" In Bergen-Belsen: Josef Kramer And The Implementation Of The "Final Solution" To The "Jewish Question," 1943-1945, Adam Blackler Apr 2006

The "Beast" In Bergen-Belsen: Josef Kramer And The Implementation Of The "Final Solution" To The "Jewish Question," 1943-1945, Adam Blackler

History Undergraduate Theses

In the summer of 1944, Adolf Hitler’s “Thousand-Year Reich” was on the verge oftotal military collapse. In June, American, British, and Canadian armies landed on the Normandy coast of France and began pressing toward German-controlled Paris. In the east, extensively scattered and poorly supplied German troops were spread across a 1400- mile front and faced the Red Army whose fierce fighting ability had made it legendary. Confronted with an impossible military situation, German forces became engaged in defensive operations for the duration ofthe Second World War. Hitler’s offensive against the Jews ofEurope, however, was entering its fourth year ...

Ethnic And Gender Identity In Hip-Hop Among Three Female Emcees In The Netherlands, Shoshana Walter Apr 2006

Ethnic And Gender Identity In Hip-Hop Among Three Female Emcees In The Netherlands, Shoshana Walter

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This field study project examines how female rappers in the Netherlands transgress notions of what it means to be Dutch and what it means be female. Based on interviews with three female rappers, as well as academics and participants in the hip hop scene, the author explores the significance of self identification within the current political and social context of the Netherlands. Beginning with a history of hip hop, an analysis of globalization and the Dutch hip hop scene, and a review of relevant current events, a firm foundation is established on which issues of identity, ethnicity, and gender in ...
