Morris High School: A Biography, Naomi Sharlin Feb 2019

Morris High School: A Biography, Naomi Sharlin

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Morris High School was conceived and built in the Bronx with a lofty mission: to provide a comprehensive, world-class secondary education to the children of immigrant and working-class families, and in so doing to elevate the American public education system and America itself. Such a weighty mission for an institution would result, one could expect, in painstaking record keeping, the lionization of great leaders, consistent investment in the building, and attention given to problems encountered or created over the years. And yet, the life of Morris High School remains elusive. Key figures in its story are lost to obscurity like ...

Triennial Scientific Review: Assisting Drowning Victims: Effective Water Rescue Equipment For Lay-Responders, Angela K. Beale-Tawfeeq, American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council

International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education

The original question addressed in the scientific review was What is the most effective piece of rescue equipment for a lay responder to throw to a person in trouble in water? and the modified question was rephrased as What are the most effective types of aquatic rescue equipment for a layperson/bystander to use to rescue a drowning person? To thoroughly analyze the main question, the following sub-questions were examined: What are the most accurate and buoyant types of devices? What specific equipment is best for quick rescues? What specific equipment can be grasped most easily by drowning victims? This ...

Everything Is Relative: Frances Elizabeth Mease Barrow (Aunt Fanny) And Sarah Leaming Barrow Holly (Aunt Fanny's Daughter), Deidre A. Johnson Jan 2019

Everything Is Relative: Frances Elizabeth Mease Barrow (Aunt Fanny) And Sarah Leaming Barrow Holly (Aunt Fanny's Daughter), Deidre A. Johnson

English Faculty Publications

For more than forty years Frances Elizabeth Mease Barrow's name – or, rather, that of her pseudonym, "Aunt Fanny" – remained before the public. In the 1850s and 1860s, she published five quirkily-titled series combining humor, moral instruction, and social awareness. By the 1870s and 1880s, her name was associated with children's charities and with club activities and literary salons. When she died in 1894, one obituary characterized her both as an author whose children's books "delighted the grandfathers and grandmothers of the present day" and as "a social star, known to everybody as 'Aunt Fanny.'" Yet even though ...


Telling The Truth About Sibling Abuse: Domestic Violence In Julie Barton's Dog Medicine And Tara Westover's Educated, Amy E. Robillard Jan 2019

Telling The Truth About Sibling Abuse: Domestic Violence In Julie Barton's Dog Medicine And Tara Westover's Educated, Amy E. Robillard

Survive & Thrive: A Journal for Medical Humanities and Narrative as Medicine

Cultural conversations about two recent memoirs, Julie Barton’s Dog Medicine and Tara Westover’s Educated, miss an opportunity to address the most common form of domestic violence—sibling abuse—in favor, instead, of more palatable cultural narrative about depression and education. I argue that the memoirs themselves provide ample opportunity for such a conversation.


“Who Now Shall Believe That Liar, Merlin?”: The Prophecies Of Merlin In History, Megan L. Cairns Jan 2019

“Who Now Shall Believe That Liar, Merlin?”: The Prophecies Of Merlin In History, Megan L. Cairns

Dialogues: Undergraduate Research in Philosophy, History, and Politics

This research article examines Merlin's prophecies and how their political use has shifted from one of belief and of direct political significance, to general disbelief. It examines how the use of prophecy exploited the prestige of King Arthur and Merlin. Tactics used to take advantage of this prestige ranged from rulers claiming blood relation to King Arthur to learned men interpreting existing prophecies. Sources, such as Wace, Geoffrey of Monmouth, and modern day novelists, are used to illustrate the prophecies’ evolution from the twelfth to the twentieth century and what it means.

Nonviolent Resistance To Security Policy In Nationalist Northern Ireland, 1970-1981, Thomas E. Caulfield Jan 2019

Nonviolent Resistance To Security Policy In Nationalist Northern Ireland, 1970-1981, Thomas E. Caulfield

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Political division has plagued Northern Ireland since its partition from the rest of Ireland in the 1920s. Current literature recounts the role of nationalist actors in the violent struggle that erupted in 1969 initiating a 3-decade period of civil strife described as the Troubles. However, very little scholarly coverage exists providing details of nonviolent resistance on the part of some community members. The purpose of this interpretive phenomenological study was to examine the meanings and perceptions evoked from Irish nationalists from Belfast and Derry who chose to challenge security policies through nonviolent actions from 1970 through 1981. Using a chain ...


[Mis-]Managing Fisheries On The West Coast Of Ireland In The Nineteenth Century, John B. Roney Jan 2019

[Mis-]Managing Fisheries On The West Coast Of Ireland In The Nineteenth Century, John B. Roney

History Faculty Publications

This study focuses on the cultural heritage of artisan coastal fishing in the west of Ireland in the 19th century. The town and port of Dingle, County Kerry, offers an important case study on the progress of local development and changing British policies. While there was clearly an abundance of fish, the poverty and the lack of capital for improvements in ports, vessels, gear, education, and transportation, left the fishing industry underdeveloped until well after the 1890s. In addition, a growing rift developed between the traditional farmer-fishermen and the new middle-class capitalist companies. After several royal commissions examined the fishing ...


Reconciliation: Facilitating Ethical Space Between Indigenous Women And Girls Of A Drum Circle And White, Settler Men Of A Police Chorus, Kelly Laurila Jan 2019

Reconciliation: Facilitating Ethical Space Between Indigenous Women And Girls Of A Drum Circle And White, Settler Men Of A Police Chorus, Kelly Laurila

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Abstract

The purpose of this dissertation was to seek understanding of how a singing partnership between Indigenous women and girls of a drum circle and white, Settler men of a police chorus (i.e., representing public relations for Waterloo Regional Police Services)[1] has been sustained within a local context for five years. Knowing the historical and ongoing colonial systemic violence in policing practices with Indigenous peoples in Canada, it seems unlikely that such a partnership would take place. Song provided this partnership with a bridge for engagement and a means to disrupt enduring perceptions of one another that have ...

Reflections On International Research In Accounting: Vintage 1950, S. Paul (Samuel Paul) Garner (1910-)

The Accounting Historians Notebook

The principal purpose of this brief item is to furnish 1980 accounting researchers, now in generous number throughout the world, with a modest perspective on how far accounting research has come in slightly less than 30 years, based on the compilation of Professor Bray in his little booklet of 1952 and 1953. Evidently he had thought about the preparation of the Register for some years. He obviously also had to have a rather wide ranging correspondence and knowledge of accounting research in many countries, in order to undertake the writing of the manuscript for his printed work. As contrasted with ...

Processus Décisionnel Du Consentement Aux Soins Chez L’Adolescent Atteint D’Un Cancer : Une Perspective Triadique, Joséanne Desrosiers, Christine Genest, Ariane Ballard, Sylvie Le May

Science of Nursing and Health Practices - Science infirmière et pratiques en santé

Introduction. Obtaining consent to care in pediatric oncology is recognized as a complex decisional process on account of the multiple stakeholders involved. In Quebec, the process is complicated all the more by the fact that teenagers 14 years and over can, under certain circumstances, consent to care without parental approval. Objective. The aim of this study was to develop a conceptual model of the decisional process involved in obtaining consent to care for adolescents with cancer from the triadic perspective of adolescents, parents and pivot nurses. Method. Data were collected through individual semi-structured interviews and sociodemographic questionnaires. Interviews were transcribed ...

From Forward To Spot Prices: Producers, Retailers And Loss Averse Consumers In Electricity Markets, Valeria Di Cosmo, Elisa Trujillo-Baute Dec 2018

From Forward To Spot Prices: Producers, Retailers And Loss Averse Consumers In Electricity Markets, Valeria Di Cosmo, Elisa Trujillo-Baute

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei Working Papers

The benefits of smoothing demand peaks in the electricity market has been widely recognised. European countries such Spain and some of the Scandinavian countries have recently given to the consumers the possibility to face the spot prices instead of having a fixed tariffs determined by retailers. This paper develops a theoretical model to study the relations between risk averse consumers, retailers and producers, both in the spot and in the forward markets when consumers are able to choose between fixed tariffs and the wholesale prices. The model is calibrated on a real market case - Spain - where since 2014 spot tariffs ...


Cosmopolitanism In Silicon Valley: An Analysis Of Identity And Community, Gabriela Joseph Dec 2018

Cosmopolitanism In Silicon Valley: An Analysis Of Identity And Community, Gabriela Joseph

Culture, Society and Praxis

The classic form of the nation-state is quickly disintegrating in favor of more fluid forms of cultural identity. Much of this is attributed to the impact of globalization. And in the wake of a hyper-connected global order, there is little doubt that cosmopolitanism is one the most relevant discourses of the coming century.

But how is this abstract notion grounded and operationalized? Who are the cosmopolitans? And what does cosmopolitanism look like?

This paper hopes to examine cosmopolitanism within the context of Silicon Valley by redefining what it means to be cosmopolitan, presenting the narratives of three individuals, and addressing ...


Reminiscing About Latin: Cases Of Life-Writing And The Classical Tradition, David Andrew Porter Dec 2018

Reminiscing About Latin: Cases Of Life-Writing And The Classical Tradition, David Andrew Porter

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Reminiscing about Latin: Cases of Life-writing and the Classical Tradition," David Andrew Porter examines the life of Latin and life-writing in Latin while drawing on other languages. He argues that post-classical Latin writing is vital to many modern writers and offers a challenge to post-Romantic conceptions of literature. He explores how Latin literary traditions affect professional and accidental writers, from the Renaissance scholar Isaac Casaubon to the Jamaican poet Francis Williams, in order to draw attention to the humour, irony and conflict in such lived experiences and writing.


A Call To Peace: How Third-Party Actors And Frameworks Impacted The Peace Processes Of Northern Ireland And Colombia, Esther K. Holm Dec 2018

A Call To Peace: How Third-Party Actors And Frameworks Impacted The Peace Processes Of Northern Ireland And Colombia, Esther K. Holm

Channels: Where Disciplines Meet

Northern Ireland and Colombia both serve as excellent case studies on how the end of the Cold War impacted peace processes. Both countries experienced conflicts that begun in the Cold War era and underwent peace processes in the post-Cold War era. As such, studying them reveals characteristics of post-Cold War peace processes. For example, both Northern Ireland and Colombia showcase the important role that third-party actors play in modern conflict mediation. Both countries benefited greatly from mediation conducted by international organization, other countries, and individuals. Furthermore, both countries demonstrate the importance of frameworks in any successful peace negotiation. This paper ...
