Education Blues: A Study Of The Experiences Of Black Families Encountering Discipline Policies At A Charter School In Memphis, Tennessee, Ryan B. Warren Aug 2018

Education Blues: A Study Of The Experiences Of Black Families Encountering Discipline Policies At A Charter School In Memphis, Tennessee, Ryan B. Warren

African-American Studies Theses

This study will examine the educational experiences of black families with behavior management policies at a privatized public charter school. The sample for this study will include three African American families with middle school children enrolled in such a charter school. The study will utilize Critical Race Theory for the theoretical framework. Qualitative methods will be used to conduct in-depth interviews with students and their parents about their educational experiences as it pertains to behavior management systems at the charter school they attend. As a former teacher at the charter school in question, the researcher is uniquely positioned to gain ...


Crime Futures Market, Adam White Jul 2018

Crime Futures Market, Adam White

Adam White

Responding to the legally guilty is typically presented as a choice between incarceration and rehabilitation.  This paper suggests a third option: preemptive rehabilitation.  The argument presents an innovative institutional approach and a unique moral justification.  The vision is a crime futures market that transfers the risk of potential crime away from undeserving victims and into the portfolios of willing investors.  Instead of taxpayers paying exclusively for prisons, the proposal would allow young adults to sign contracts to not get involved in crime, but pay the award only upon their future success.  Because the contracts represent a future payment they are ...


Wangari Maathai The Educator: Straddling Tradition And Modernity, Namulundah Florence Jul 2018

Wangari Maathai The Educator: Straddling Tradition And Modernity, Namulundah Florence

Journal of Global Education and Research

Wangari Muta Mary Jo Maathai’s (April 1, 1940 – September 25, 2011) public image highlights her nationality, her education both in and outside Kenya, her establishment of the Green Belt Movement (GBM) for which she received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2004, and her political activism. Advocates for female empowerment take solace in success stories like Maathai’s rise from a village girl to become a global icon of leadership. Yet, her mobility was more circumstantial than it was deliberate, and is inseparable from the uneasy compromise between the traditional gender roles of her youth with the critical consciousness nurtured ...


Post-Traumatic Stress And Academic Performance Among Entry-Level Doctoral Physical Therapy Students In A Human Anatomy Cadaver Dissection Course, Sue E. Curfman, Gary P. Austin, Joyce S. Nicholas Jul 2018

Post-Traumatic Stress And Academic Performance Among Entry-Level Doctoral Physical Therapy Students In A Human Anatomy Cadaver Dissection Course, Sue E. Curfman, Gary P. Austin, Joyce S. Nicholas

Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice

Background: Dissection of human cadavers can be a stressful experience for students. Purpose: The purposes of this study were twofold: 1) to determine if physical therapy students develop or experience a worsening of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms during exposure to and dissection of human cadavers; and 2) to determine if these symptoms are related to academic performance. Methods: Previous history of a diagnosis of anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder and level of prior exposure to cadavers were recorded among 26 entry-level first semester doctoral students in physical therapy (DPT) taking gross human anatomy. Their level of anxiety about working ...

You've Gotta Read This: Summer Reading At Musselman Library (2018), Musselman Library

You’ve Gotta Read This: Summer Reading at Musselman Library

Each year, Musselman Library asks Gettysburg College faculty, staff, and administrators to help create a suggested summer reading list. We hope to inspire students and the rest of our community to take time in the summer to sit back, relax, and read; or watch a memorable film.

With the 2018 collection, 102 employees offer 178 recommendations of favorite books, films, and television programs. These selections touch on everything from politics to romance.

We include several special features this year. Two of our regular columnists return once again: James Udden with his latest recommendations for the best film and TV, and ...

Activating The Archive And The Postcolony In The Work Of Sven Augustijnen, Ann Curran Jun 2018

Activating The Archive And The Postcolony In The Work Of Sven Augustijnen, Ann Curran

Irish Communication Review

The repression of colonial pasts reveal themselves in contemporary discourses and forms of representation – they are not nor can be ever fully deemed ‘past’ says T.J. Demos. Belgian filmmaker Sven Augustijnen excavates the troubling legacy of Belgian colonialism through his documentary films and installations. His investment in archival research and the presentation of media artifacts produces a multi-sensory experience for the viewer which in turn has implications for contemporary documentary practices, archive thinking and critical media literacy. In this article I will consider the relationship between the 2016 exhibition mounted by Augustijnenat Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in ...


A Comparison Of The Models And Methods Of Surveillance In East Germany And Northern Ireland And Their Relevance To Modern-Day Securitization Of Society, Cliodhna Pierce Jun 2018

A Comparison Of The Models And Methods Of Surveillance In East Germany And Northern Ireland And Their Relevance To Modern-Day Securitization Of Society, Cliodhna Pierce

Irish Communication Review

Despite increasing awareness of the rise in societal surveillance as a result of leaks by former NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and subsequent revelations from Wikileaks, the damage of pervasive surveillance practices on the individual and on communities has yet to be measured. As John Gilliom has argued, ‘until we are able to generate sufficient research to make plausible sense of how differently situated people – welfare mothers, prisoners, students, middle-class professionals – speak of and respond to their various surveillance settings, we will be unable to devise a meaningful account of what surveillance is’ (2006, 126). Before we can examine the impact ...


In An Era Of Fake News, Information Literacy Has A Role To Play In Journalism Education In Ireland, Isabelle Courtney Jun 2018

In An Era Of Fake News, Information Literacy Has A Role To Play In Journalism Education In Ireland, Isabelle Courtney

Irish Communication Review

Framed by the problem of fake news and misinformation, a recent study into journalism education in Ireland focused on the overlaps that exist between two professions: journalism and librarianship. The emerging literature on fake news is overwhelmingly coming from these two disciplines. Historically both have deep roots in truth and fact and employ a specific range of tools for the evaluation of information. Librarians use a framework called information literacy, while journalism educators speak of media literacy, fact-checking and verification of sources. With the many overlaps in media and information literacy, journalists and librarians would appear to be natural partners ...


The State Of The Guitar In Kathmandu, Mason Brown, Samyog Regmi Jun 2018

The State Of The Guitar In Kathmandu, Mason Brown, Samyog Regmi

HIMALAYA, the Journal of the Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies

The thriving guitar scene in Kathmandu is not well known outside of the country, and particularly not in the West. It has also not been the topic of much recent scholarship. It has been assumed that for Nepalis the guitar, as a foreign instrument, represents freedom and modernity; but, is this true, and what else might it signify to Nepali guitarists themselves? This article gives an overview of the history of the guitar in Kathmandu by drawing on both published scholarship and interviews conducted by the authors with twelve prominent Nepalese guitarists and guitar educators to establish the current state ...


Our Day Will Come, Heidi Moe Graviet Jun 2018

Our Day Will Come, Heidi Moe Graviet

BYU English Symposium

The majority of scholars agree that Seamus Heaney’s bog poetry is politically charged and directed primarily at the violence of the Irish “Troubles.” Critics have extensively analyzed the poems that Heaney published during this time for their political context and bold political commentary. However, one poem has been curiously overlooked. Bogland,” published in the face of the “Troubles” in 1969, has received little, if any, attention in way of politics. Instead, it has been analyzed as a process poem: a psychological dig or embodiment of Heaney’s exploration of his personal fears as a poet, search for resolution, and ...


Legal Responses To The European Union’S Migration Crisis, Graham Butler Jun 2018

Legal Responses To The European Union’S Migration Crisis, Graham Butler

San Diego International Law Journal

The European Union (“EU”) imposes on itself its own constraints in which it performs as an external actor, and yet, there is little acknowledgment of this imposed constraint. It is the post-2015 migration crisis, an unexpected occurrence, which has brought the fields of EU external relation law and EU migration law together. Europe’s external border, on both land and sea, has tightened through legal acts of non-traditional nature, namely, the resort to securitisation and militarisation. Challenges, such as mass irregular migration, require more than just individual responses from a few selected Member States that are directly affected by the ...


Letters From Olive Fremstad To Willa Cather: A View Beyond The Song Of The Lark, Jessica Tebo Jun 2018

Letters From Olive Fremstad To Willa Cather: A View Beyond The Song Of The Lark, Jessica Tebo

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

In 1913, Willa Cather met opera-diva Olive Fremstad and the two formed a friendship that would span at least a decade. Fremstad has long been recognized as an inspiration for the character Thea Kronborg of Cather’s Song of the Lark (1915) but has not been portrayed as influential in any other aspects to Cather’s career. Letters sent by Fremstad to Cather have recently been located, and they reveal an ongoing and interdisciplinary dialogue between the two women that negotiates issues surrounding art and professionalism. I locate these letters within the broader context of Cather’s public and fictional ...

Insights Into Harvard Shaker History, Michael Volmar Jun 2018

Insights Into Harvard Shaker History, Michael Volmar

American Communal Societies Quarterly

Sometimes an object can provide a unique point of reference for understanding a particular period of time. Such is the case of a desk that was made by Harvard Shaker Alfred Collier for the long-standing village ministry leader Grove Blanchard in 1861. The 1820s to the 1860s were arguably the “golden age” for the Harvard Shakers. The rich documents that have survived from that period in archives around the region, including at Fruitlands, provide valuable insights into the social dynamics within the village. The Harvard and Shirley journals are particularly fruitful in illuminating the daily routines within these villages, and ...


Jack B. Yeats: Journey In Consciousness, Buck, Richard Jun 2018

Jack B. Yeats: Journey In Consciousness, Buck, Richard

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) was an Irish artist and writer. His art evolved from the representational to something much more abstract. By examining six paintings covering the early, the middle, and the late periods of his life, I have endeavored to demonstrate a distinct shift in Jack B. Yeats from the mental structure of consciousness to the emergence of the integral structure of consciousness, as described by Gebser (1984). Artistic evidence of a shift in his consciousness is supplemented by a critical reading of one of his novels. Secondary sources were consulted to gain insight into the literary works that ...

The Role Of Individual, Family-Related, And Organizational Factors In Shaping Wlc In Offshoring Contexts: A Study Of European And Indian It Professionals, Saonee Sarker, Suprateek Sarker, Jan Ondrus, Debasish Jana, Manju Ahuja May 2018

The Role Of Individual, Family-Related, And Organizational Factors In Shaping Wlc In Offshoring Contexts: A Study Of European And Indian It Professionals, Saonee Sarker, Suprateek Sarker, Jan Ondrus, Debasish Jana, Manju Ahuja

Manju Ahuja

Today, we operate in a networked world, where organizations frequently resort to offshoring, such that work gets accomplished by a globally distributed workforce, whether inside or outside the organizational boundaries. Much of the past research on offshoring has focused on economic rationale and benefits as well as risks associated with offshoring. Offshoring leverages human capital in different parts of the globe, and the issues of WLC (WLC) faced by offshoring workforce issues can have substantial impact on the effectiveness of the offshoring arrangements. In spite of this, WLC in the context of offshoring has not received the attention it deserves ...


Food Security And The Sustainable Livelihood Approach To Development In Uganda, Megan Jessup-Varnum May 2018

Food Security And The Sustainable Livelihood Approach To Development In Uganda, Megan Jessup-Varnum

University Honors Theses

Food security is a growing global issue. Poverty and malnutrition kill millions of people worldwide every year. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of poverty and malnutrition in the world. Previous development strategies in sub-Saharan Africa that have attempted to alleviate poverty and eradicate malnutrition have proved unsuccessful. However, there is a fairly new approach to development, known as the sustainable livelihood approach that tackles issues of poverty, malnutrition, and food security in a holistic way. This paper explores the sustainable livelihood approach to development and it’s effectiveness. This paper focuses on a health clinic and rabbit breeding program ...

The Withering Away Of The Law: An Indigenous Perspective On The Decolonisation Of The Criminal Justice System And Criminology, Biko Agozino May 2018

The Withering Away Of The Law: An Indigenous Perspective On The Decolonisation Of The Criminal Justice System And Criminology, Biko Agozino

Journal of Global Indigeneity

The decolonisation of criminology should not be seen as an event marked by the publication of an eponymous text, rather it should be seen as the scholar-activism that is on-going especially in the face of the reality that postcolonialism appears to be giving way to the project of recolonisation. Moreover, the struggle for decolonisation continues due to the fact that the postcolonial does not capture adequately the ambition of permanence in settler colonialism. Imperialism is stubbornly intolerant of decolonisation especially in an exclusionary scholarly field like criminology that remains under the dominance of patriarchal white supremacist imperialist thought. Like all ...


An Identity Healing: Socialization And African-Centered Practices With At-Risk Youth, Jessica Shabazz May 2018

An Identity Healing: Socialization And African-Centered Practices With At-Risk Youth, Jessica Shabazz

Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses

African-Centered practices are being regarded as valuable therapeutic healing methods within the African-diaspora. However, there is limited research that examines the propitious advantages and psychotherapeutic use of Afrocentric movement of two very distinctive, yet possible complementary systems, the Katherine Dunham technique and Kemetic Yoga. The research available on these African-based movement practices recognizes them as holistic and encompassing a mind/body/soul connection. Ritualistic practices in counseling remains a growing interest to mental health practitioners of all cultures, to ensure that clients are provided with an experience of client-centered psychotherapy. Therapeutic African-centered practices align with Carl Rogers’ person-centered approach and ...
