Routes And Roots: American Literature As A Means Of Understanding Contemporary Space And Place, Lars Erik Larson Jan 2015

Routes And Roots: American Literature As A Means Of Understanding Contemporary Space And Place, Lars Erik Larson

English Faculty Publications and Presentations

One of the most concrete trends in the study of America's contemporary literature has been the analysis of its spaces. While the locations of literature have often been relegated to the background of textual considerations -- treated as if they are inert props for the drama of the text -- theorists in recent decades have shown the dynamic and urgent role space serves. This paper explores the reasons why analyzing literary space can bring us to a fuller awareness of infrastructures that influence our choices, material designs that shape our identities, and structures of power that exist invisibly in our daily ...

George Lippard’S The Quaker City: Disjointed Text, Dismembered Bodies, Regenerated Democracy, D. Berton Emerson Jan 2015

George Lippard’S The Quaker City: Disjointed Text, Dismembered Bodies, Regenerated Democracy, D. Berton Emerson

English Faculty Scholarship

This essay argues that George Lippard’s The Quaker City (1844–1845), originally published in ten separate numbers, is best understood when read more consistently with Lippard’s own mid-production assessment: that he was producing two different books, a novel and its sequel. Doing so reveals that the target of Lippard’s unruly social protest transitions away from a nation-framed story featuring the seduction of an innocent woman and the moral degradation of a community in which such a crime would be possible, to a broader complaint in the sequel against the lack of democratic power and agency at the ...

Public Accommodations And The Civil Rights Act Of 1964: A Surprising Success?, Brian K. Landsberg Jan 2015

Public Accommodations And The Civil Rights Act Of 1964: A Surprising Success?, Brian K. Landsberg

McGeorge School of Law Scholarly Articles

When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 became law the Johnson Administration had ample reason to worry that Title II of the Act, forbidding racial discrimination in public accommodations, would meet widespread, even violent resistance in the Deep South. The Supreme Court upheld Title II’s constitutionality, based on the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Despite pockets of resistance, within a few years of the passage of the Act, racial discrimination in public accommodations had become the exception, not the rule. While some problems remain, Title II has, on the whole, been remarkably successful. The melting of resistance to Title ...


The Diversity Challenge: Exploring The "Invisible College" Of International Arbitration, Susan D. Franck Jan 2015

The Diversity Challenge: Exploring The "Invisible College" Of International Arbitration, Susan D. Franck

Faculty Scholarship

As diversity can affect the perceived legitimacy of a state’s dispute resolution system and the quality of judicial decisions, diversity levels in the national bench and bar have been an area of transnational concern. By contrast, little is known about diversity of adjudicators and counsel in international arbitration. With a lack of accurate, complete, and publicly available data about international arbitrators and practitioners, speculation about membership in the “invisible college” of international arbitration abounds. Using data from a survey of attendees at the prestigious and elite biennial Congress of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration permitted one glimpse into ...

Constructing A Shared Identity In Deeply Divided Societies, John M. Nagle Jan 2015

Constructing A Shared Identity In Deeply Divided Societies, John M. Nagle

John M Nagle

In order to bolster sustainable peacebuilding in violently divided societies, a normative suggestion is that efforts should be made to construct a shared public identity that overarches ethnic divisions. A number of different centripetal/transformationist processes are identified as engendering a shared identity in comparison to consociational arrangements, which are accused of institutionalizing ethnic differences and perpetuating conflict. These transformationist approaches essentially rest on the premise that since ethnicity is constructed it can be reconstructed into new shared forms. Looking at Northern Ireland, we argue there are limits to the extent that ethnicity can be reconstructed into shared identities. By ...


The Origins Of Right To Work: Antilabor Democracy In Nineteenth-Century Chicago, Cedric De Leon Jan 2015

The Origins Of Right To Work: Antilabor Democracy In Nineteenth-Century Chicago, Cedric De Leon

Book Samples

[Excerpt] “Right to work” states weaken collective bargaining rights and limit the ability of unions to effectively advocate on behalf of workers. As more and more states consider enacting right-to-work laws, observers trace the contemporary attack on organized labor to the 1980s and the Reagan era. In The Origins of Right to Work, however, Cedric de Leon contends that this antagonism began a century earlier with the Northern victory in the U.S. Civil War, when the political establishment revised the English common-law doctrine of conspiracy to equate collective bargaining with the enslavement of free white men.

In doing so ...


Making It In Maine: Stories Of Jewish Life In Small-Town America, David M. Freidenreich Jan 2015

Making It In Maine: Stories Of Jewish Life In Small-Town America, David M. Freidenreich

Faculty Scholarship

There are countless stories of Jewish life in Maine, stretching back 200 years. These are stories worth telling not only for their enjoyment value but also because we can learn a great deal from them. They reflect the challenges that confronted members of an immigrant community as they sought to become true Mainers, as well as the challenges this ethnic group now faces as a result of its successful integration. The experiences of Jews in Maine, moreover, encapsulate in many ways the experiences of small-town Jews throughout New England and the United States. Their stories offer glimpses into the changing ...


Queering Identity In The African Diaspora: The Performance Dramas Of Sharon Bridgforth And Trey Anthony, Adewunmi R. Oke Jan 2015

Queering Identity In The African Diaspora: The Performance Dramas Of Sharon Bridgforth And Trey Anthony, Adewunmi R. Oke

Masters Theses

Noticeably, there is little to no cross-cultural analysis of Black queer women artists of the African diaspora in Diaspora, Literary and Theatre and Performance studies. These disciplines tend to focus on geographic locations with an emphasis on the United States, the Caribbean islands and Europe in relation to the African continent. In addition, the work of Black men artists holds precedence in discussions of blackness, diaspora, and performance. Overwhelmingly, the contributions of Black women artists in the diaspora pales in comparison to their male counterparts, especially in number. More drastically, the voices of Black queer women artists actually published are ...


The 1907 Anti-Punjabi Hostilities In Washington State: Prelude To The Ghadar Movement, Paul Englesberg Jan 2015

The 1907 Anti-Punjabi Hostilities In Washington State: Prelude To The Ghadar Movement, Paul Englesberg

The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership Publications

Following months of harassment and threats, on September 4, 1907 a mob attacked and drove out over 200 South Asian laborers from Bellingham, Washington. Most of these immigrants, commonly referred to as “Hindus,” were Sikhs who had recently emigrated from Punjab to Canada and then crossed the border to work in large lumber mills. The goal of the rioters was to expel these workers from the mills and the city. In the months following, anti-Punjabi hostilities occurred in other locations in the Puget Sound region of Washington State, causing many more South Asian immigrants to flee back to Canada or ...


Spiritual Ideals And Political Realities: Inquisitorial Motivations In The Trial Of The Knights Templar In The British Isles 1307-1312, Emily Stoneking Jan 2015

Spiritual Ideals And Political Realities: Inquisitorial Motivations In The Trial Of The Knights Templar In The British Isles 1307-1312, Emily Stoneking

UVM College of Arts and Sciences College Honors Theses

This thesis examines the trial of the Knights Templar in the British Isles, 1307-1312. It emphasizes the role of the French Dominican inquisitors throughout the process of the trial, and seeks to contextualize the trial through an understanding of their worldviews and motivations. A close reading of Helen J. Nicholson’s 2011 publication of The Proceedings Against the Templars in the British Isles highlights the goals of the two inquisitors who were sent to England to conduct the interrogations there. England’s common law prevented the use of torture, and the subsequent frustrations that this caused, forced these inquisitors to ...


The Bitcoin Blockchain As Financial Market Infrastructure: A Consideration Of Operational Risk, Angela Walch Jan 2015

The Bitcoin Blockchain As Financial Market Infrastructure: A Consideration Of Operational Risk, Angela Walch

Faculty Articles

“Blockchain” is the word on the street these days, with every significant financial institution experimenting with this new technology. Many say that this remarkable innovation could radically transform our financial system, eliminating the costs and inefficiencies that plague our existing financial infrastructures. Venture capital investments are pouring into blockchain startups, which are scrambling to disrupt the “quadrillion” dollar markets represented by existing financial market infrastructures. A debate rages over whether public, “permissionless” blockchains (like Bitcoin’s) or private, “permissioned” blockchains are more desirable.

Amidst this flurry of innovation and investment, this paper inquires into the suitability of the Bitcoin blockchain ...

Student Press Law: Past, Present, And Future, David R. Wheeler

Theses and Dissertations--Communication

This dissertation will identify and describe the state of the law regarding student speech and press freedom. The following questions will be explored: What rights do young people have? What standards have state and federal courts established? To what extent and how clearly have state statutes defined student expressive rights? What do state laws say about this topic? What issues have yet to be addressed, either because a case has not raised certain issues or because the issue does not lend itself to compromise or a clear solution? How does the capacity of social media for widespread and rapid dissemination ...

Finally, this paper ...


The 2014 Illinois Governor Race: Quinn Vs Rauner, John S. Jackson Jan 2015

The 2014 Illinois Governor Race: Quinn Vs Rauner, John S. Jackson

The Simon Review (Occasional Papers of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute)

The 2014 Governor’s race in Illinois featured two candidates who are the epitome of campaigns for high office in America today. In addition, the race also illustrated the major trends, driven by big money and big media, which are shaping our politics in the 21st century. This paper examines and analyzes the governor’s race in order to learn what it teaches us about politics in Illinois, and in the United States midway through the second decade of this century.
