Americanizing The American Woman: Symbols Of Nationalism In The Ladies Home Journal, 1890-1900, Kaithlyn Kayer Dec 2005

Americanizing The American Woman: Symbols Of Nationalism In The Ladies Home Journal, 1890-1900, Kaithlyn Kayer

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

When the Ladies’ Home Journal began in 1883, its creator, Mr. Cyrus H. K. Curtis, could not have possibly dreamed that the magazine would grow to be the most influential woman’s journal of all time. A material culture analysis of American nationalistic emblems published in the Ladies’ Home Journal between 1890 and 1900 will determine how Edward Bok, editor, controlled nationalism in the feminine market, displaying the openness of women to nationalism in the late 19th century. It will also reveal how Bok created and controlled an educational tool he deemed “Americanization”, establishing a technique that magazines would replicate ...

Getting To “Why?”, Gregory S. Palermo Oct 2005

Getting To “Why?”, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This is a case study of the development of a learning outcomes centered, large lecture, introductory design theory course, and a best practices presentation of active learning exercises aimed at getting to ‘Why?’ from ‘What?’. Getting to ‘Why?’ is a principal objective for me in large-lecture undergraduate education. In 1996 and 2003 I participated in developing required foundation theory courses for architecture and design averaging 220-260 students per section. Central to both are active learning exercises for analyzing the concrete ‘Who, what, where and when?’ to discern a ‘Why?’. This paper addresses the importance of ‘Why?’, and the learning outcomes ...

Newport History

Between 1830 and 1860, Newport became a favored summer haunt for moderately wealthy southerners, Bostonians, New Yorkers, and Philadelphians. Staying at first in boarding houses and hotels, and later in summerhouses termed “cottages,” these summer residents transformed the city from a sleepy, post-Revolutionary ruin into one of the leading resorts in America. The post-Civil War Gilded Age brought with it the “New York invasion” of unbridled wealth and aristocratic ambition, eclipsing this earlier summer society in the popular mind and replacing many of its cottages with palatial mansions. Eliza Cope Harrison and Rosemary F. Carroll return to antebellum Newport in ...

Managing Cultural Heritage: Heritage Listing And Property Value, Lynne Armitage, Janine Irons Jun 2005

Managing Cultural Heritage: Heritage Listing And Property Value, Lynne Armitage, Janine Irons

Lynne Armitage

Local governments across Australia are often placed in the invidious position of acknowledging the long term value to the community of a property or place by including it in a heritage register whilst alienating some current, often vocal, sectors of that community who raise concerns over an actual or perceived loss of individual, usually proprietary, rights. Whilst such conflicts of interest are inevitable, the necessity to manage such situations sensitively and effectively remains the lot of the local authority. In order to assist with the appropriate management of such situations, a study has been undertaken into the effects of heritage ...

Amk Ranch, Grand Teton National Park: Updated National Register Form, Mary Humstone

AMK Ranch

This file includes two documents pertaining to the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. The primary document is the property’s updated National Register of Historic Places nomination form (2005).

Preserving Rural African American Heritage In Hawkins County, Tennessee: A History And Restoration Proposal For Saunders School, Chapel, And Cemetery., Sharon Edwina Becker May 2005

Preserving Rural African American Heritage In Hawkins County, Tennessee: A History And Restoration Proposal For Saunders School, Chapel, And Cemetery., Sharon Edwina Becker

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

As generations segment and separate by distance and relationships, the chapel, school, and cemetery in what was known as the Saunders Chapel Community in Hawkins County, Tennessee, becomes a unifying bond to its descendents. This study records Saunders School history as an established central archive and uses the history for a restoration proposal. Saunders history, like all social and cultural history, exists as coalesced fragments. In the hope of deriving proof of the past, each entity and event is brought together so they might illuminate another. The story of Saunders Chapel will continue to grow and live on through the ...

Newport History

During the last decades of the nineteenth century, Newport had more than its fair share of remarkable personalities who shaped its unique literary, artistic, and social cultures. Maud Howe Elliott has until now been little recognized for her prominent role in all these areas. This issue of Newport History features an article by Nancy Whipple Grinnell that rectifies this oversight by charting Elliott's important role in the formation of the Art Association of Newport, predecessor to the Newport Art Museum. In the 1870s, the young architect Charles Follen McKim was another Newport habitué of particular note. This issue of ...

Phase I Archaeological Intensive Survey Of Hassanamesitt Woods Property, Grafton, Massachusetts, Jack Gary, Stephen Mrozowski, David B. Landon Jan 2005

Phase I Archaeological Intensive Survey Of Hassanamesitt Woods Property, Grafton, Massachusetts, Jack Gary, Stephen Mrozowski, David B. Landon

Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research Publications

The Center for Cultural and Environmental History conducted a Phase I archaeological intensive survey of the Hassanamesitt Woods property in Grafton, Massachusetts from October 2004 through January 2005. Documentary evidence has suggested that the property may contain remains of the church for the Praying Indian village of Hassanamisco, established by John Eliot in 1660. Historical deed research has also placed several Nipmuc families on the property in the early 18th century, suggesting the area was resettled by the original inhabitants of Hassanimisco in the aftermath of King Philip's War. Throughout the course of the 18th and 19th centuries the ...

What Forces That Shape And Retain The Beijing Courtyard Houses?, Chiu-Shui Chan, Ying Xiong Jan 2005

What Forces That Shape And Retain The Beijing Courtyard Houses?, Chiu-Shui Chan, Ying Xiong

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The type of courtyard house, as found within the Inner City of Beijing, is a well-developed Chinese housing typology. All houses in this area share a homogeneous pattern and texture in form and spatial layout. Particularly, certain distinguishing features can be easily identified across houses. This paper explains: (1) the outstanding features found in almost all courtyard houses in the city of Beijing, as well as in other cities across China, (2) the reasons why these features were preserved for more than two thousand years, (3) the socio-cultural driving forces that have maintained these features historically, and (4) the challenges ...
