Locations Of Sauk, Mesquakie, And Associated Euro-American Sites 1832 To 1845: An Ethnohistoric Approach , Kathryn Elizabeth Gourley

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

By the treaty negotiated at the close of the Black Hawk War in 1832, the Sauk (Sac) and Mesquakie (Fox) ceded their lands bordering the Mississippi River. Thirteen years and several treaties later,the tribes had ceded all their remaining lands in Iowa Territory to the United States government and they were relocated to a reservation in present-day Kansas. Abundant documentary evidence of these land transfers has survived. These documents have been the basis of many detailed studies by historians and ethnohistorians (Berthrong 1956: Gallaher 1916a, b: M. Green 1965, 1976: Hagan 1958: Kurtz 1986: Trennert 1981: Van der Zee ...


In Search Of A Eurydice: The Orphic Theme As A Link Between Hart Crane's The Bridge And Aimé Césaire's Return To My Native Land, Julie A. Minkler Jan 1990

In Search Of A Eurydice: The Orphic Theme As A Link Between Hart Crane's The Bridge And Aimé Césaire's Return To My Native Land, Julie A. Minkler

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In The Birth of Tragedy, Friedrich Nietzsche maintains that artistic creation is the product of two formative and controversial forces--the Apollonian and the Dionysiac-–"rising directly from nature" (24). According to Nietzsche, the artist must appear as "imitator" of nature, "either as the Apollonian dream artist or the Dionysiac ecstatic artist, or, finally... as dream and ecstatic artist in one" ( 24).


Sinners In The Pulpit: The Ministers Of Faulkner And Hawthorne, Swati Chanda Jan 1990

Sinners In The Pulpit: The Ministers Of Faulkner And Hawthorne, Swati Chanda

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The significance of the minister in society has always been acknowledged. He has always played an important social role and, because of his particular authority, is expected to be a model for his parishioners. The situation of a religious leader is markedly different from that of any other figure of authority. Venial sins may be forgiven more easily in a leader whose duties are secular because, after all, the public duties of such a leader need not involve the attempt to better men's souls. The duties of a priest or a parson. on the other hand, make him responsible ...

Being In A Mythic World, Robert J. Smith Jan 1990

Being In A Mythic World, Robert J. Smith

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Always Coming Home, by Ursula K. Le Guin, is an unusual novel that at once relaxes, disturbs, and intrigues the reader. The reasons why are not easy to find; but I started with the assumption that Always Coming Home utilizes an authentic discourse, what I call "authentic feminine discourse" to emphasize the feminist slant on what it means to write outside patriarchal conventions as an authentic individual. This is not to be taken as an exhaustive study, nor as some kind of metanarrative that attempts to re-create the text in terms of this limited thesis. Even the claim of unification ...


Foreign Student Adjustment At Iowa State University, Sandra Lee Humphrey Jan 1990

Foreign Student Adjustment At Iowa State University, Sandra Lee Humphrey

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Each year, millions of people, residents of every country in the world, leave their homes to go abroad. Their purposes in sojourning to distant, unfamiliar places are varied. Some want to travel, some go on business, some wish to serve those in need through volunteer service, and still others hope to receive a high-quality education. Regardless of the motives behind travel, living in a foreign country, even for just a few days, affords new experiences and different, often uncomfortable, feelings about the surroundings.

Foreign students in particular have often been observed in order to assess their reactions to the new ...


The Role Of Literature In The Freshman English Programs Of Private, Liberal Arts Colleges In Iowa, Minnesota, And Wisconsin, Carol A. Teator Jan 1990

The Role Of Literature In The Freshman English Programs Of Private, Liberal Arts Colleges In Iowa, Minnesota, And Wisconsin, Carol A. Teator

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

What I have attempted to determine in this study of freshman English programs in selected private, liberal arts colleges in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa is the role that literature has in the freshman writing programs of these colleges.

Based on the pedagogical and theoretical essays I had read prior to beginning this study, I believed there was a trend in writing instruction theory that would necessitate a deemphasis on literary studies in freshman writing instruction. Contemporary composition theory is based on the belief that freshman writing is best taught through instruction in typical rhetorical modes, such as the comparison/contrast ...

Life History And Developmental Correlates Of Female Vocational Preferences: A Multivariate Study , Laura Sherrick Reichel

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The primary purpose of the present study was to assess the relationship among life history experiences, sex-roles, self-esteem and women's vocational preferences according to Holland's vocational typology. The sample consisted of 296 undergraduate female college students. Data were gathered via four questionnaires: the Strong Campbell Interest Inventory (Hansen & Campbell, 1985); the Biographical Questionnaire (Owens, 1971); the Bem Sex-Role Inventory (Bem, 1981); and the Self-Esteem Inventory (Coopersmith, 1987). Subjects were then classified according to Holland's vocational personality types;Both discriminant analyses and canonical correlations demonstrated the validity of using life history information, sex-roles and self-esteem to predict female vocational preferences ...

The Journals Of S. Elizabeth Dusenbury, 1852-1857: Portrait Of A Teacher's Development , Ruth K. Mcgaha

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The journals of Elizabeth Dusenbury Vincent, written between 1852 and 1857, trace the development of a young middle class New York woman toward intellectual fulfillment. The second daughter of an ambitious, driving lumber baron, she found herself torn between the expectations of an evangelical Presbyterian family and church and her own yearning for learning. Two years at Genesee Wesleyan Seminary left her with the feeling there was a wide gulf between herself and those about her. She set and pursued her own course of study which led her to Joliet, Illinois, as a teacher in the first public high school ...
