The Selected Language Styles Of African Americans In An Urban Environment, Danielle R. England Dec 1999

The Selected Language Styles Of African Americans In An Urban Environment, Danielle R. England

McCabe Thesis Collection

The overall scope of this research is to define and explain the different styles of African American English. What are they and how do they affect the American society? The means by which many African Americans communicate is different from what American deems as standard American English (SAE). To this date, the voice of Black America has been categorizes as Black Dialect, African American Vernacular English, and Black English. Only until recently has the Black voice been regarded as Ebonics. Where did these language styles originate and why do we continue to speak it? Of course, there is nothing wrong ...

After Slavery: The Rubin Hancock Farmstead, 1889-1916, Travis County, Texas, Marie E. Blake, Terri Myers

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

From 1984 to 1987, a series of survey, testing, and excavation projects was undertaken by the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT, now the Texas Department of Transportation, TxDOT) at site 41TV875, the Rubin Hancock farmstead in Travis County. In 1998, TxDOT contracted with Prewitt and Associates, Inc., to complete the analysis, report production, and curation requirements for the mitigation work on both the prehistoric and historic components of the site. The results of the prehistoric investigations are reported in a separate volume (Gadus et al. 2000). This volume details the history and archeology related to occupation ...

On The Side Of Angels: Lesbian Activism In Los Angeles, 1970-1990, Yolanda G. Retter

American Studies ETDs

During the 1970s and 1980s, Los Angeles was one urban location where the struggle for lesbian rights and lesbian community was publicly and energetically pursued by a movement of diverse individuals and groups. This generation of politicized lesbians was formed by the confluence of various socio-historical currents and informed by experiences in other social movements. For almost ten years, lesbian activists across the United States engaged in unprecedented institution-building and political activism. The backbone of this underfunded movement was made up of a host of dedicated volunteers. This community history used the methods of oral histories and an analysis of ...

Comedies Of Transgression In Gangsta Rap And Ancient Classical Poetry, Ralph M. Rosen, Donald R. Marks Oct 1999

Comedies Of Transgression In Gangsta Rap And Ancient Classical Poetry, Ralph M. Rosen, Donald R. Marks

Departmental Papers (Classical Studies)

First paragraph: The history of literature and art offers no shortage of works created to offend or shock an audience, but few have been as incendiary as gangsta rap. Apologists cannot deny the problematic content of this form of rap—the misogynistic posturing, themes of intense violence, freewheeling and gratuitous obscenity—and some detractors hold that even the attempt to analyze the genre bestows undeserved legitimacy on its practitioners. The transgressive and counter-hegemonic stance of gangsta rap has become so hreatening, in fact, that its origins as a complex poetic form with deep roots in a variety of literary and ...

Change, Continuity, And Golf's Battle Of The Century, Stephen Lowe

Faculty Scholarship – History

It says something significant about American society in the Twenties that both Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen were exceptionally popular, despite their varying socio-economic backgrounds, public images, and personal lives. Indeed, Hagen and Jones are revealing enough as individuals, but taken together they provide rich comparisons and contrasts which illuminate a pivotal period in the history of golf and American society.

Sibling Relationships In The Context Of Birth Order, Carolyn S. Potvin

MALS Final Projects, 1995-2019

Perspectives on the influence of the framework of family on personality development have been summarized, with an emphasis on empirical data related to communication patterns of siblings to each other. This paper is not so much an exploration into birth order as it is about the interactions of siblings in relation to family dynamics.

The first part of this paper probes into the consequences of birth order on individuality, in the context of the ...

Sporty Creek, James Still

American Literature

Sporty Creek is a series of short stories set in the Kentucky hills. Narrated by a young boy (a cousin of the narrator of Still's classic novel River of Earth), the book tells the story of his family during the Great Depression.
