Silence Emerging From Birds, Rebecca Macijeski

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

This dissertation represents the culmination of five years of creative activity in poetry. Included within this document are three main components: 1.) a critical introduction to my book-length manuscript of original poems complete to satisfy the requirements of creative writing within the English Department; 2.) a description of my creative activity reflected in that book-length manuscript, and; 3.) a sample of previously published original poems from the manuscript. I will describe each of these components in greater detail below.

The critical introduction to the creative work seeks to explore and examine various aesthetic and theoretical influences on my poems. The ...

Session Description

The Outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts region is famed for its beauty as a summer vacation destination. For many residents and migrant workers serving the tourism industry; however, the intersection of isolation, little affordable housing, and limited transportation options can exacerbate problems due to mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring conditions. Police, emergency responders, and EDs encounter this at-risk population disproportionately. Outer Cape Health Services, the local FQHC, proposed a novel solution ...

El Salvador: Methods Use To Document Human Rights Violations, Gloria Valencia-Weber Feb 2017

El Salvador: Methods Use To Document Human Rights Violations, Gloria Valencia-Weber

Gloria Valencia-Weber

This study describes and analyzes the methods used to document human rights abuses in El Salvador, focusing on the methods used by the United States Government through its Embassy in San Salvador, and by Tutela Legal, a nongovernmental monitoring agency in San Salvador. The authors examined Tutela and U.S. records which were relevant and available for 1980 through 1984 and used post-1984 official statements which relate to methods. The focus is on the method used for the documentation of the murder or disappearance of civilians. This paper begins with an examination of the current international human rights standards as ...

South Dakota Periodicals Index: 1982-1986, Clark N. Hallman, Mary E. Caspers, Lisa F. Lister, Deb Gilchrist

Mary Caspers-Graper

The South Dakota Periodicals Index is a subject and author index to selected periodicals and annuals published in South Dakota. Its purpose is to facilitate the location of information about the people, places, events, and issues that make South Dakota a special place. As reference librarians at South Dakota State University we are aware of the difficulty of finding specific information about South Dakota. National periodical indexes provide very limited coverage of South Dakota, and it is not unusual to search through many different indexes without finding a single reference to the state.

Sarah Dávila-Ruhaak

This report relates to the mistreatment and abuse that adult immigrant detainees suffer in United States detention facilities. It is submitted in response to the United States’ periodic report relating to the Convention Against Torture (CAT) and specifically addresses the deplorable conditions of detention, the use of solitary confinement, the problem of sexual violence in detention and the lack of investigation of such acts, the refoulement of detainees who face risk of torture, the enforcement of the non-derogable prohibition of torture, and the prevention of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. This report discusses current practices of the U ...


Rethinking Deference: How The History Of Church Property Disputes Calls Into Question Long-Standing First Amendment Doctrine, Eric G. Osborne, Michael D. Bush Jan 2017

Rethinking Deference: How The History Of Church Property Disputes Calls Into Question Long-Standing First Amendment Doctrine, Eric G. Osborne, Michael D. Bush

SMU Law Review

Long-held constitutional principles state that where the factual foundation that underlies a decision is shown to have been wrong, the Supreme Court will reconsider that body of law. This article demonstrates that the foundations upon which the entire doctrine of church property law has been developed may be wrong, necessitating a reconsideration of that area of law. Watson v. Jones, 80 U.S. 679 (1871), a divisive church property dispute from Kentucky, marked the United States Supreme Court’s first entry into church property disputes. Prior to Watson, state courts had handled church property disputes according to the rules of ...

Hike Your Own Hike: Cosmopolitanism And Applied Behavior Analysis Explored Through Spn, Caitlin Brianna Walsh Jan 2017

Hike Your Own Hike: Cosmopolitanism And Applied Behavior Analysis Explored Through Spn, Caitlin Brianna Walsh

Graduate College Dissertations and Theses

Ever since I started working with animals, I felt an intrinsic motivation to develop relationships based on trust and mutual admiration. Working in the horse world, I became dismayed at the coercive methods used to assure progress and achieve competition goals. I moved to Burlington to pursue a career helping children. Working as a behavior interventionist I felt peace and satisfaction as I utilized my previous skills and knowledge learned from my work with animals and my undergraduate education. After about a year of work, I started to become frustrated and dismayed at the treatment of some of our children ...


From Planning To Passing: The Amherst, Massachusetts Plastic Bag Ban, Kevin J. Hollerbach Jan 2017

From Planning To Passing: The Amherst, Massachusetts Plastic Bag Ban, Kevin J. Hollerbach

Student Showcase

This case study will detail the background and influences for a plastic bag ban in the town of Amherst, outline the steps taken from planning to passage, and address roadblocks and missteps that may be avoided with the implementation of future bans. It is my hope that this document will not only serve as a guide, but also an inspiration for additional local action in Massachusetts and across the country. No matter what the national political climate or attitude towards environmental issues, local action is always possible, and change is usually easier than you think. Think globally, act locally!


"The Church Or The Wheel?" Religious Institutions Respond To The American Bicycle Boom (Forthcoming), Christopher A. Sweet Dec 2016

"The Church Or The Wheel?" Religious Institutions Respond To The American Bicycle Boom (Forthcoming), Christopher A. Sweet

Christopher A. Sweet

“These bladder-wheel bicycles are diabolical devices of the demon of darkness.” Thus railed a Baltimore preacher against the massive wave of popularity for the safety bicycle in the mid-1890s. From a 21st century perspective it seems quaint that American religious institutions felt threatened by something so mundane as bicycles. At the time though, easy-to-ride and relatively cheap safety bicycles presented a direct challenge to many established cultural and social norms. Women cyclists gained independent mobility and were able to press for dress reform. Physical health became a priority for city-dwellers. Christian churches and pastors primarily criticized the bicycle for encouraging ...

The Rise Of Fundamentalism: The End Of American Pluralism?, Kaitlin L. Giles Dec 2016

The Rise Of Fundamentalism: The End Of American Pluralism?, Kaitlin L. Giles

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Liberty is a balancing act between the individual and society where the government is expected to provide for individual rights without impeding the rights of others. Nowhere is this conflict between the private and public more evident than in the case of religion. Due to the Establishment clause, the United States government must simultaneously promote individual belief without endorsing any single belief. This is extremely difficult for American’s extensively diverse society when individuals want to express their religion within a public setting. While government seeks a peaceful coexistence of religions in society, some religious factions believe they have the ...

“We Need Not Think Alike To Love Alike”: The Religious Community Of Unitarian Universalism, Emma Christen Dec 2016

“We Need Not Think Alike To Love Alike”: The Religious Community Of Unitarian Universalism, Emma Christen

Relics, Remnants, and Religion: An Undergraduate Journal in Religious Studies

This paper argues that religion does not need clear boundaries on who can be included in a religious tradition and who cannot—for example, certain rituals that a member must practice, or certain beliefs they must profess that they hold—in order to function. A definition of religion which might better apply to traditions like Unitarian Universalism would be one that does not focus on common beliefs, but instead on shared values and commitment to shared ways of living. One such definition comes from Paul Tillich, who states that “religion is more than a system of special symbols, rites, and ...
