Western Kentucky University Stormwater Utility Survey 2022, Warren Campbell Jun 2022

Western Kentucky University Stormwater Utility Survey 2022, Warren Campbell

SEAS Faculty Publications

The main goal of this survey is to identify as many U.S. Stormwater Utilities (SWUs) as possible. Because many stormwater professionals do not have the time to respond to questionnaires, our primary method of identification was Internet searches. We searched on key terms such as “stormwater utility”, “stormwater fee”, and “drainage fee”. We scoured on-line municipal codes such as Municode, AmLegal, Sterling, LexisNexis, General Code, and others. We searched through many city web sites trying to find utilities. We have also had many people contact me to update fees and identify new utilities. However, the data primarily comes from ...


Behold: A Man, Earl Clement Davis Jun 2022

Behold: A Man, Earl Clement Davis

Sermons, 1905-1919

A concise statement on the ongoing vitality of human thinking and seeking, and against the "mindless" recitation of earlier thinking, particularly in religious matters. Davis says to forget miracles and instead look to current human experience and how to best understand it. He concludes that "God is much more the unborn future than he is the sealed past."

Ideal Design For Emergence Of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, And Community Health Engagement Using Systems Thinking, Sung-Won Paek Jun 2022

Ideal Design For Emergence Of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, And Community Health Engagement Using Systems Thinking, Sung-Won Paek

Theses & Dissertations

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and community health engagement (DEICHE) are complex contextual elements with interactions and interdependencies that make their emergence and sustainability in a community a significant challenge. This dissertation examines this argument by exploring the impact of Einstein Healthcare Network initiatives that sought to address social determinants of health in the Philadelphia Korean community. It applies systems thinking to understand these complex issues, and design thinking to generate an ideal concept for the emergence and sustainability of diversity, equity, inclusion, and community health engagement for the Philadelphia Korean community as a model for multicultural society in the greater Philadelphia ...

The Democratization Of Industry I, Earl Clement Davis May 2022

The Democratization Of Industry I, Earl Clement Davis

Sermons, 1905-1919

There are two versions of this sermon. An earlier incomplete version, with a slightly different title, “Making Democracy Safe In America: Democratization of Industry,” was one of the sermons in the “1918 Four-brad Bundle.” That sermon was substantially expanded and worked over into “The Democratization of Industry.” Both manuscripts and their transcriptions are provided here, with the latter being the primary document featured.

Obedience To The Will Of God, Earl Clement Davis May 2022

Obedience To The Will Of God, Earl Clement Davis

Sermons, 1905-1919

In this sermon, Davis considers the need for our obedience to God's will. He examines three aspects of Calvinism:
(1) Sovereignty of God (which Davis suggests is effectively the same as the sovereignty of natural law)
(2) Man's dependence on God -- again consistent with the idea that natural law covers the whole universe
(3) the doctrine of man's depravity and that of election by God. Davis calls this "obnoxious and revolting."

Obedience to the will of God includes "obeying the natural and moral laws." But it is more: it is a transcendent identification with God -- of all ...


The Richness Of The Religious Life, Earl Clement Davis May 2022

The Richness Of The Religious Life, Earl Clement Davis

Sermons, 1905-1919

This sermon discusses three important elements to the religious life: (1) Evidence from nature of a powerful and ill-understood force behind the universe; (2) A realization that man is akin to God--both physically and more importantly mentally/morally; (3) A transcendent experience of being one with God and sharing God's purposes on earth. Davis is clearly motivated by his experiences in nature. He concludes that the religious life is not a sacrifice, but a "full complete, ever broadening life".

Growth And Salvation, Earl Clement Davis May 2022

Growth And Salvation, Earl Clement Davis

Sermons, 1905-1919

Earl Davis approached this topic twice. While it is pretty clear that “Irrepressible Impulse to Growth” is the first attempt (it is short and does not really come to a conclusion), “Growth and Salvation” reads as a full completed sermon.

Here we provide both versions of the sermon. The primary downloadable document is for the combined text and translation of “Growth and Salvation". This is followed by the separate documents of the aforementioned, and then the corresponding three documents for “The Irrepressible Impulse to Growth.”

Florida's Carpenter Gothic Churches: Artistic Gems From A Victorian Past, Jack C. Lane May 2022

Florida's Carpenter Gothic Churches: Artistic Gems From A Victorian Past, Jack C. Lane

Florida Historical Quarterly

In 1930 a relatively little known regional artist named Grant Wood entered a competition at the Art Institute of Chicago where he won first place with a painting entitled "American Gothic." News sources across the country published the story of this event along with a photograph of the winning painting, which created a sensation previously unknown in the history of American art. "American Gothic," an iconic symbol of American rural life, became one of the world's best-known images. In the painting, two rural figures with stern sober appearances stand before a small Carpenter Gothic house. The figures dominate the ...

In addition, the technical considerations and challenges of singing the selected songs will be examined.


Feelings Of Fallenness: Affect And Gender In Victorian Fallen Woman Novels, Kate Kowalski May 2022

Feelings Of Fallenness: Affect And Gender In Victorian Fallen Woman Novels, Kate Kowalski

Undergraduate Honors Theses

A famous poem by Coventry Patmore articulated Victorian expectations for women: to be “the angel in the house.” The woman was the arbiter of morality, spiritual guide and helpmeet, and was worshiped almost as a goddess of purity— and goddesses need no legal protections. Chastity and submission were not only expected, but demanded of Victorian women. After all, these qualities were scientifically inherent in women (to the Victorian mind); the biological imperative of reproduction and maternity rendered women’s bodies a sacred space and prevented their minds from developing as a man’s could.The twin forces of Victorian patriarchal ...

Lg Ms 111 Fortuna, Henderson, Prizer Collection, Caitlin E. Corrigan

Search the Manuscript Collection (Finding Aids)

Donated collectively by Stan Fortuna, Susan Henderson, and Peter Prizer, early activists in Maine’s LGBTQ+ history, this collection of research material spans from 1974 to 2014, with the bulk of material from the mid-1970s.

This collection documents the development and activities of the Maine Gay Task Force, including the creation and publication of a newsletter from 1974 to 1980. It opens with planning materials and news coverage of the first statewide gathering for gay people, the Maine Gay Symposium held at the University of Maine’s Orono campus, an event which sparked statewide organizing efforts, including the creation of ...


A Dangerous Pursuit Of Safety: The Value Of Freedom Of Expression And The Folly Of Trading It Away, Nina Katarina Štular May 2022

A Dangerous Pursuit Of Safety: The Value Of Freedom Of Expression And The Folly Of Trading It Away, Nina Katarina Štular

Honor Scholar Theses

Freedom of expression has always been weighed against other values. Like all freedoms, it brings with it a degree of risk that it will be misused to do ill. In the work ahead, I hope to offer a reminder of the value of free expression and a warning against the folly of over-restricting it. Those in favor of censoring and regulating expression too often feign to act as protectors of the much desired public or community safety. What censorship really produces, however, is at best a mere illusion of safety. Only an environment in which all ideas, no matter how ...


Mediation Of The Religion-Prejudice Link, Aaron R. Dustin May 2022

Mediation Of The Religion-Prejudice Link, Aaron R. Dustin

Honors College

Although religious teachings typically recommend prosocial behavior, religiosity is reliably linked to prejudice. This paradoxical relationship raises the question: what is it about religion that might lead to prejudice despite religion’s apparent drive for prosociality? The answer may lie with religious fundamentalism, a particularly rigid way of holding one’s religious beliefs as the single deepest and most certain source of truth. We propose that religious fundamentalism mediates the relationship between religiosity and prejudice. We also seek to explore the influence of three facets of inflexible thinking (belief rigidity, dualism, and inviolacy) on the relationship between religious fundamentalism and ...


The Life Of Socrates: Plato, Xenophon, And The Untapped Potential Of The Socratic Problem, Abigail R. Fritz May 2022

The Life Of Socrates: Plato, Xenophon, And The Untapped Potential Of The Socratic Problem, Abigail R. Fritz

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The primary objectives of this thesis are to argue for an approach to the Socratic problem that (1) examines Xenophon’s Socratic writings along with those of Plato, and (2) analyzes the Socratic problem with a view to the ancient conception of philosophy as a way of life. To achieve these objectives, the introductory chapter provides an overview of scholarly approaches to the Socratic problem, which have tended to favor Plato as the only reliable source on the historical Socrates. This chapter argues that such approaches are flawed, and that both authors are important sources on the historical Socrates.

The ...


A Sense Of Belongingness Among Undergraduate Students Across Race/Ethnicity, Class, And Gender, Francesca Marino Apr 2022

A Sense Of Belongingness Among Undergraduate Students Across Race/Ethnicity, Class, And Gender, Francesca Marino

Honors Projects

Research has shown that feelings of belongingness within an educational setting are likely to improve outcomes in various academic-related areas. In the present study, I examine BGSU undergraduate students’ sense of belongingness, feelings of value, and understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts on campus. Using an online campus climate survey, I explore differences in perceptions and experiences among students with different social identities. In particular, I focus on differences across race/ethnicity, social class, and gender identity. Findings show that there are racial/ethnic and gender differences across feelings and perceptions of the general campus climate, DEI, belongingness ...


Introduction: Setting A Precedent For Regional Revolution: The West Florida Revolt Considered, Samuel C. Hyde, Jr. Apr 2022

Introduction: Setting A Precedent For Regional Revolution: The West Florida Revolt Considered, Samuel C. Hyde, Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

In the course of its historical development, Florida has endured shifting and contested lines of demarcation. Few casual observers and likely a large percentage of the recent transplants to the Sunshine State, realize that Florida's borders once extended far beyond the current confines of the state. Many students of history are surprised to learn that Florida once included a significant portion of Louisiana. On the eve of the bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase in 2003, scholars were hard pressed to explain to a skeptical public that all of the Bayou State was not a part of the Purchase. Despite ...


The Catholic Diocese Of Miami And African American Desegregation, Mark Newman Apr 2022

The Catholic Diocese Of Miami And African American Desegregation, Mark Newman

Florida Historical Quarterly

In recent years, scholars have revised the traditional interpretation of Florida as being more moderate and progressive during the civil rights era than other southern states. They have also challenged the view that an influx of white northern migrants to south Florida made the region and state more amenable to desegregation. According to recent scholarship, even after state government officials reluctantly desegregated public accommodations as a result of the federal Civil Rights Act of l964, in south Florida, as elsewhere in the South, whites and African Americans remained largely residentially separate. Disputes over these issues had other ramifications as well ...

Opposing Ideologies: The Function Of Sacrifice In The Contemporary Construction Of Extremist Communities., Gabriel Matteson Apr 2022

Opposing Ideologies: The Function Of Sacrifice In The Contemporary Construction Of Extremist Communities., Gabriel Matteson

Student Research Submissions

Through this essay a Foucauldian understanding of the state and state power dismantles conceptions of extremism and creates a new identifier known as “oppositional ideologies.” This new identifier is then applied in the context on René Gerard’s theory of sacrifice and the function of sacrifice is explored through a cross-cultural analysis of wahhabism/salafisism and white nationalism.


Choosing Children: Preventing Intra-Family Conflict From Feeding The Prison Pipeline, Samantha D. Mier Apr 2022

Choosing Children: Preventing Intra-Family Conflict From Feeding The Prison Pipeline, Samantha D. Mier

Richmond Public Interest Law Review

Parents struggling to raise challenging children often lack needed community

support. These parents turn to law enforcement when they feel their

child cannot be controlled. Problematically, law enforcement officers are

trained to respond to crime, not simple parent-child domestic disputes. Thus,

when parents call police during disagreements, the argument may end in arrest

and contact with the juvenile court system. Interaction with the juvenile

justice system carries a myriad of risks. This comment outlines the risks inherent

in calling the police and entering the juvenile court system. The author

evaluates existing alternatives to calling law enforcement and recommends

that communities ...


Florida In American Popular Magazines 1870-1970, Tommy R. Thompson Apr 2022

Florida In American Popular Magazines 1870-1970, Tommy R. Thompson

Florida Historical Quarterly

One might say that in the nineteenth century Americans discovered Florida. Fascinated with the abundant sunshine and the beauty of its flora and fauna, a steady progression of visitors tantalized the rest of the country with an "Edenic" image of the peninsula. Just one of the many travelers who journeyed to Florida, Harriet Beecher Stowe set the tone in the early 1870s with a description that made it practically irresistible to Americans of means: "The great charm, after all, of this life, is its outdoorness. To be able to spend your winter days out of doors, even though some days ...


How Would Jesus Watch This? An Investigation Into Dance Restrictions In American Protestantism, Rebecca Lynn Huppenthal Apr 2022

How Would Jesus Watch This? An Investigation Into Dance Restrictions In American Protestantism, Rebecca Lynn Huppenthal

Theatre & Dance ETDs

In the United States there has been many disagreements concerning the place of dance within Protestant Christianity. Some denominations have banned dance entirely while other utilize dance as an essential element of worship. At the center of this argument is the understanding, treatment, and use of the physical body. Beginning in the sixteenth century through current times, I analyze specific Protestant denominations including the Puritans, Evangelical Fundamentalists, Southern Baptists, the Shakers, certain African American denominations, and Pentecostals. Additionally, I examine notable liturgical modern dancers, as well as my own choreographic work, a dance film titled Rebirth. This research displays the ...


The Ethical Aspect Of Socialism, Earl Clement Davis Apr 2022

The Ethical Aspect Of Socialism, Earl Clement Davis

Manuscripts

This is an address supporting socialism, where Davis situates socialism as an obvious next move in the historical trajectory from feudalism to freedom; authority to democracy. Davis sees said historical trajectory as an ongoing movement away from monopolies of truth, state power, and industrial production and distribution.

Unfortunately, this essay, clearly written for a particular audience (“I assume that you have not come here to be entertained…”) has no definite date in the manuscript, or identification of the event where it was presented. There is ample textual evidence that it was written during the time Earl Davis was the Minister ...

Religion On Florida Territorial Frontiers, Ernest F. Dibble Apr 2022

Religion On Florida Territorial Frontiers, Ernest F. Dibble

Florida Historical Quarterly

In reviewing works on Florida territorial history, well-known scholar Herbert J. Doherty Jr. noted in 1958 that many individual church histories had been written but most were "not good history." Even though he later conceded that Catholic and some Protestant denominations were "adequately treated" in denominational history survey, a true religious history-one that synthesizes church histories- remain unavailable. The role of religion on Florida's territorial frontiers is largely hidden from history.
