Strange Bedfellows: Nativism, Know-Nothings, African-Americans, And School Desegregation In Antebellum Massachusetts, Stan Prager Sep 2017

Strange Bedfellows: Nativism, Know-Nothings, African-Americans, And School Desegregation In Antebellum Massachusetts, Stan Prager

Saber and Scroll

In Massachusetts in the 1850s, rapidly changing economic conditions fueled a bewildering set of dislocations. Among other forces, falling labor values for the working class, exponential increases in foreign born populations, poverty and crime, and changing social and political institutions translated into a rage directed at the elite and their failed institutions. This spawned a populist revolt that manifested itself in racism, hatred, xenophobia, exclusion and a determination to overthrow the old order and start afresh. At the same time, African-Americans—chafing at life at the margins in a state that nevertheless offered the best overall quality of life in ...

The Population Of Iowa, Its Composition And Changes: A Brief Sociological Study Of Iowa’S Human Assets, Wm. L. Harter, R. E. Stewart

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

In 94 years the population of Iowa grew from 10,531 to 2,469,889.

In 1856 only 18.4 percent of the people of Iowa had been born in the state, 65.1 percent were natives of other states and 16.5 percent had come from foreign lands; while in 1925, 72.1 percent were native Iowans, 19.9 percent were natives of other states and only 8 percent were foreign born.

The settlement of Iowa took place from the east and southeast toward the west and northwest in wavelike movements. These movement gave rise to significant differences in ...

The Influence Of Culture On The Use Of Healthcare Services By Refugees In Southcentral Kentucky: A Mixed Study, Chika N. Ejike Apr 2017

The Influence Of Culture On The Use Of Healthcare Services By Refugees In Southcentral Kentucky: A Mixed Study, Chika N. Ejike

Dissertations

The world as a global village has become a ubiquitous trope in the popular discourse, and Bowling Green, Kentucky, with its substantial immigrant population, may be considered an exemplar of this idealized community. It has become an ideal location for research regarding the challenges faced by immigrants. Due to the diverse cultural identities of the refugee/immigrant population, it is particularly well suited for studies into complex culturally dependent healthcare utilization patterns.

The central research question for the study was as follows: What are the healthcare-seeking behavioral patterns (as influenced by culture) among refugees at their nearest healthcare facilities? This ...

Best Practices For Population Genetic Analyses, Niklaus J. Grünwald, Sydney E. Everhart, B. J. Knaus, Zhian N. Kamvar Jan 2017

Best Practices For Population Genetic Analyses, Niklaus J. Grünwald, Sydney E. Everhart, B. J. Knaus, Zhian N. Kamvar

Papers in Plant Pathology

Population genetic analysis is a powerful tool to understand how pathogens emerge and adapt. However, determining the genetic structure of populations requires complex knowledge on a range of subtle skills that are often not explicitly stated in book chapters or review articles on population genetics. What is a good sampling strategy? How many isolates should I sample? How do I include positive and negative controls in my molecular assays? What marker system should I use? This review will attempt to address many of these practical questions that are often not readily answered from reading books or reviews on the topic ...

Coastal Louisiana: Adaptive Capacity In The Face Of Climate Change, Tara Lambeth Aug 2016

Coastal Louisiana: Adaptive Capacity In The Face Of Climate Change, Tara Lambeth

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

Extreme weather events can result in natural disasters, and climate change can cause these weather events to occur more often and with more intensity. Because of social and physical vulnerabilities, climate change and extreme weather often affect coastal communities. As climate change continues to be a factor for many coastal communities, and environmental hazards and vulnerability continue to increase, the need for adaptation may become a reality for many communities. However, very few studies have been done on the effect climate change and mitigation measures implemented in response to climate change have on a community’s adaptive capacity.

Poitín: A Spirit Of Rebellion And Inspiration, James Murphy Jun 2016

Poitín: A Spirit Of Rebellion And Inspiration, James Murphy

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

Behind the rise of the successful brands of Irish whiskey lies the story of poitín, a unique distilled beverage available in alcohol by volume strengths ranging between 40 to 90 percent. Poitín has been referred to as Ireland's mescal, cachaca or grappa and with the Irish Whiskey Industry estimating that 35 new distilleries will be opened in Ireland by 2019 it offers huge potential with the advent of new spirit and whiskey brands to satisfy the development of the domestic and international markets. This paper will explore the evolution of this ancient Irish spirit from its earliest mentions to ...

"Torn From Their Mother's Breasts": The Battle For Impoverished Souls In Ireland, 1853-1885, Kristin V. Brig Apr 2016

"Torn From Their Mother's Breasts": The Battle For Impoverished Souls In Ireland, 1853-1885, Kristin V. Brig

Madison Historical Review

A world history analysis, this paper examines the struggle between Protestant governmental and Catholic private philanthropy in mid-nineteenth-century Ireland, exploring how each side waged a war of political and religious misunderstanding in an effort to gain control over the Catholic Irish poor. Ireland’s philanthropic scene in this period became a battleground on which the British government fought for political control and Catholics for religious control; however, neither group understood what the other fought for, waging a war of cross-purposes. Through an examination of this battle for control, this paper depicts the emergence of modern Irish welfare from the famine ...

Landscapes Of The Irish Language: Discursive Constructions Of Authenticity In The Irish Diaspora, Jill Vaughan Jan 2016

Landscapes Of The Irish Language: Discursive Constructions Of Authenticity In The Irish Diaspora, Jill Vaughan

Irish Journal of Applied Social Studies

Almost 2 million people in the North and South of Ireland identify as Irish speakers and an estimated 70 million around the globe can claim Irish heritage. While Irish ancestry may be distant for many, the Irish language is active in numerous locations in the diaspora, as documented in research profiling communities across the globe (e.g. Callahan, 1994; Garland 2008; Giles 2016; Kallen 1984, 1994; Noone, 2012a; Ó hEadhra, 1998;Ó Conchubhair 2008; Walsh & NíDhúda 2015 inter alia) and evidenced by the existence of many cultural and language groups. Census figures indicate that at least25,000 people currently speak the language in Canada, the United States and Australia alone (Statistics Canada, 2013; United States Census Bureau, 2015; Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012), yet very few in-depth general accounts of Irish-language use in the diaspora exist. Linguistic practices ...


The Unwanted Immigrant, Frank A. Bozich Iii Jan 2016

The Unwanted Immigrant, Frank A. Bozich Iii

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

The social and religious differences between Chinese migrants and Americans of European descent played a large role in the exploitation of the Chinese. Ultimately, nativism became ingrained in Californian society as Irish Americans began to view Chinese as a threat to their economic success and violence toward Chinese became more common due to the Californian government’s support of anti-Chinese and nativist legislation.


Tip O’Neill: Irish-American Representative Man (2003), Shaun O’Connell Nov 2015

Tip O’Neill: Irish-American Representative Man (2003), Shaun O’Connell

New England Journal of Public Policy

Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, Man of the House as he aptly called himself in his 1987 memoir, stood as the quintessential Irish-American representative man for half of the twentieth century. O’Neill, often misunderstood as a parochial, Irish Catholic party pol, was a shrewd, sensitive, and idealistic man who came to stand for a more inclusive and expansive sense of his region, his party, and his church. O’Neill’s impressive presence both embodied the clichés of the Irish-American character and transcended its stereotypes by articulating a noble vision of inspired duty, determined responsibility, and joy in living. There ...


The Society Of Hunger Ethiopia Government (1930-2014) And Famine: The Importance Of Constitution, Tewodros Zewdu Asfaw Nov 2015

The Society Of Hunger Ethiopia Government (1930-2014) And Famine: The Importance Of Constitution, Tewodros Zewdu Asfaw

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is a critical examination of the discursive construction of hunger using Ethiopia’s 1955, 1987, 1994 constitutions. The focus is on whether there is a match or mismatch between constitutional mandate and the level of hunger as well as the related government response in Ethiopia. It examines the relationship between the level of hunger and regime type. The findings suggest that there is a strong association between level of hunger and the absence of constitutional mandate and a strong association between regime type and level of hunger. Based on the findings, it is recommended that constitutional mandate and ...


Vicious Cycle Or Business Cycle?: Explaining Political Violence In Northern Ireland After The Troubles, Lauren Burke May 2015

Vicious Cycle Or Business Cycle?: Explaining Political Violence In Northern Ireland After The Troubles, Lauren Burke

Res Publica - Journal of Undergraduate Research

There are currently two schools of thought that seek to explain the persistence of political violence in Northern Ireland, one with a sociopolitical focus and the other with an economic focus. Expanding on past economic theory, this paper utilizes several multiple regression models to test the applicability of the economic school's relative deprivation theory in the fifteen years since the Troubles were formally ended with the signing of the Good Friday Agreement. The basis of this theory is that as economic conditions worsen in a given area, the number of acts of political violence should also increase. This study ...

Irish Women's Immigration To The United States After The Potato Famine, 1860-1900, Mackenzie S. Flanagan May 2015

Irish Women's Immigration To The United States After The Potato Famine, 1860-1900, Mackenzie S. Flanagan

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Thousands of single Irish women emigrated to the United States after the Great Potato Famine. These women left Ireland because social conditions in Ireland limited their opportunities for fulfilling lives. Changes in marriage and inheritance patterns lowered the status of unmarried women and made marriage increasingly unlikely. As a result, many women emigrated to the United States and, once here, worked, used their wages to help others emigrate, and most eventually married. Irish culture facilitated this mass migration by promoting the autonomy of single women yet limiting their options. Emigration did not signify a break with their Irish culture and ...
