Political Polarization In The United States: The Influences Of Exceptionalism And Religion, Nelson Liu Jun 2020

Political Polarization In The United States: The Influences Of Exceptionalism And Religion, Nelson Liu

International Social Science Review

American political polarization has been heavily influenced by the ideas of Exceptionalism and Religion. The interplay of these two elements within the collective American identity has forged idealist imaginations of the nation: ideological and abstract illusions wherein anything that does not conform is cast off as unpatriotic and in fact antithesis to America's foundational pillars. Exceptionalist visions carry implicit undertones of superiority and are therefore less open to compromise and change -- the very pillars of democratic deliberation. Viewing the current American moment in such a lens is critical in mitigating political polarization.


Gendering Of Leisure Forms And Its Impact On Women In Areas Of Conflict: A Case Study Of Jammu & Kashmir, Anusha Wani, Yana Azaad, Vedika Pillai Jun 2020

Gendering Of Leisure Forms And Its Impact On Women In Areas Of Conflict: A Case Study Of Jammu & Kashmir, Anusha Wani, Yana Azaad, Vedika Pillai

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The situation of conflict in Kashmir has only been intensifying post-1989 and the most recent revocation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution has had multi-faceted implications on the whole country, changing the very rubric of Kashmir. The nature of the society within and outside the homes means they must reconcile with the demands made by the private-public sphere while altering it in the process. What is noteworthy is that not only have they faced up to the situation bravely, but dealt with the difficulties and personal tragedies with their personal subjectivities and experiences that have actually empowered these women ...


Danse Macabre: The Black Death Through The Global Health Lens, Dominic Ignatius Antinozzi Jun 2020

Danse Macabre: The Black Death Through The Global Health Lens, Dominic Ignatius Antinozzi

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

As we find ourselves amid a global pandemic it is pivotal to understand our past regarding medicine and its reaction to new threats. The Black Death outbreak of the fourteenth century catalyzed a major shift in medical thought across the Eurasian continent. As medical leaders and writers of the era attempted to understand and react to the death of millions, a conceptualization of disease came about. Coming to be known as Contagion theory, this novel conceptualization led to the many advances we have enjoyed in medicine over the past 700 years. This research explores sources written in the fourteenth century ...


For The Sake Of The Environment?: Policing And Control In Glacier Bay National Park, Cecilia Slane Jun 2020

For The Sake Of The Environment?: Policing And Control In Glacier Bay National Park, Cecilia Slane

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

In the years leading up to the creation of Glacier Bay National Monument in 1925, white scientists and explorers from the contiguous US began describing Alaska as a beautiful and awe-inspiring place - a change from its previous depiction as an empty expanse of land. They began lobbying for the Glacier Bay area to be preserved based on its value as a laboratory for scientific inquiry and as a place to be set aside for future generations to appreciate. However, the Tlingit people who lived in the area were not informed about the creation of the park, or even that Alaska ...


The Unexplored History Of Brockton, Massachusetts’ Residential Racial Inequity, Brianna Bryson Jun 2020

The Unexplored History Of Brockton, Massachusetts’ Residential Racial Inequity, Brianna Bryson

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

How do the arguments made by Richard Rothstein in his book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America apply to the metropolitan and suburban areas of Southeast, Massachusetts? To what extent were the Federal, Massachusetts, and local governments’ involved in maintaining residential segregation by race and economic class in Plymouth County Massachusetts, through the Home Owners Loan Corporation and the Federal Housing Administration? The topic of research for the project will investigate the government's role in creating residentially segregated communities in Southeast Massachusetts. Beginning with the “New Deal” policies carried out under FDR ...


“I’M Real I Thought I Told Ya”: Developing Critical Media Literacy Through U.S. Latinx Digital Media Representations, Solange T. Castellar Jun 2020

“I’M Real I Thought I Told Ya”: Developing Critical Media Literacy Through U.S. Latinx Digital Media Representations, Solange T. Castellar

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis explores how audiences engage with U.S. Latinx media representations through the practice of critical media literacy. I interrogate how media consumers construct critical media literacy through interacting with U.S. Latinx figures on digital media platforms, particularly on the social-media app, Twitter, and the user-generated video content platform, YouTube. Throughout this thesis, I argue that users on these platforms who engage with U.S. Latinx pop culture figures, like Jennifer Lopez and Belcalis Almanzar (Cardi B), read, digest, and comprehend a variety of multimedia images, texts, or videos, and that this engagement becomes an accessible form of ...


In And Outside City Walls: Medieval Jewish Communities And Rulership In German Cities, Zoë Schwartz May 2020

In And Outside City Walls: Medieval Jewish Communities And Rulership In German Cities, Zoë Schwartz

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

As one would expect, Jewish life within the German Kingdom in the high middle ages (1000-1300 CE) was fraught with instability. The micro-history of specific Jewish communities has been undertaken by historians in the past, but the Jewish experience within multiple cities has yet to be compared. Due to the diversity of German city authority structures, the restrictions and privileges put upon the community were diverse. How these laws effect the daily life of the Jewish community was subject to the gentile authority of bishops, for those inhabiting bishop-cities, or the Emperor directly, for those living in free imperial states ...


Purposefully Forgetting: Surveying San Diego’S Founding Narrative During The City’S Bicentennial Celebrations Of 1969, Noah Pallmeyer May 2020

Purposefully Forgetting: Surveying San Diego’S Founding Narrative During The City’S Bicentennial Celebrations Of 1969, Noah Pallmeyer

Keck Undergraduate Humanities Research Fellows

The city of San Diego owes much its success and prosperity to the “victories associated with colonization.” This quote comes directly from the current National Park Service description of the San Diego Presidio. This project turns to the 1969 bicentennial celebrations of San Diego’s founding. This was a rhetorically powerful period in San Diego’s historical remembrance. This project argues that native and other marginalized populations were not properly considered in the narrative of San Diego’s founding during these celebrations. To understand why and how these populations failed to be properly considered, this project turns to the narratives ...

Investigation Of The "Cultural Appropriation" Of Yoga, Olivia Bartholomew May 2020

Investigation Of The "Cultural Appropriation" Of Yoga, Olivia Bartholomew

Honors Projects

With our world becoming increasingly globalized and cosmopolitan, practices that were once very traditional and spiritual are much different when they confront Western societies. Many yoga instructors and practitioners around the world are concerned about the issue of cultural appropriation within their practice. The researcher defines cultural appropriation to mean the process of a dominant culture manipulating aspects of a marginalized culture for its benefit. Traditionally, yoga comes from India, but it has become popularized throughout the world in our recent human history. Through interviews with nine yoga instructors, each from different yogic traditions, who teach in a variety of ...


Extra! Extra! Read All About It: Cultural Heritage Conservation In The Media, Bailey Elaine Pekar May 2020

Extra! Extra! Read All About It: Cultural Heritage Conservation In The Media, Bailey Elaine Pekar

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The news cycle as a whole has previously been studied to some extent, answering questions about how Americans choose to get their news and the news cycle of a hoax (Agiesta 2014; Lapoe 2013). However, a study of the news cycle specifically focused on cultural heritage conservation has not been undertaken before. While art and culture has been included as an aspect of the news cycle in other studies, the specific focus on cultural heritage conservation here is what makes this study unique.

In order to understand how the news cycle includes cultural heritage conservation, this research took two phases ...

The Role Of Agenda Melding In Measuring News Media Literacy, Christine Mcwhorter Apr 2020

The Role Of Agenda Melding In Measuring News Media Literacy, Christine Mcwhorter

Journal of Media Literacy Education

During the past few decades, educators, advocates and researchers have developed initiatives to increase news media literacy. Recent surveys indicate that audiences combine agendas from various media to suit their own needs through group discussion. This process is called “agenda melding.” Agenda melding includes the “need for orientation” function in a social context that acknowledges that the perceived importance of news issues changes in relation to their discussions with others. Using an online survey instrument with a sample of young adults, this study measures the level of news media literacy in young adults and examines the relationship between news media ...


Is That Media Literacy?: Israeli And Us Media Scholars’ Perceptions Of The Field, Ornat Turin, Yonty Friesem Apr 2020

Is That Media Literacy?: Israeli And Us Media Scholars’ Perceptions Of The Field, Ornat Turin, Yonty Friesem

Journal of Media Literacy Education

Sixty-nine media scholars from Israel and the Unites States responded to an online questionnaire aimed to identify the boundaries of media literacy. The participants received a list of thirty-two potential titles for a final paper and were asked to rate the relevancy of each topic for an undergraduate media literacy course. While the statistical analysis showed no significant difference in the ranking, deviations and distributions demonstrate disagreements as to what is important or marginal in the field. Protectionist topics were ranked high as well as topics involving children, digital media, and popular culture. It also appears that media education has ...


Mobile Phones In The Classroom: Policies And Potential Pedagogy, Pamela L. Morris, Susan H. Sarapin Apr 2020

Mobile Phones In The Classroom: Policies And Potential Pedagogy, Pamela L. Morris, Susan H. Sarapin

Journal of Media Literacy Education

Many university instructors (76% of our survey) have a mobile phone policy in their classrooms, due to the distractions of unregulated use. Yet only about half of those who ask students to put down their phones report that these policies are effective. Given that students want to and will use their phones, are instructors taking the opportunity to integrate these mobile devices as a part of media literacy or other pedagogy? We conducted a nationwide survey of more than 150 college instructors to explicate what policies are used, and where they come from; how they are enforced (e.g. rewards ...


A Partial Presence Is No Presence: Public History Institutions And The Danger Of Social Media, Alex Warren Apr 2020

A Partial Presence Is No Presence: Public History Institutions And The Danger Of Social Media, Alex Warren

Graduate Student Research Symposium

243.6 million people use social media in the United States alone: that is roughly ¾ of the population.[1] This massive audience gives the perception that, especially for smaller public history organizations, it is a simple and effective tool to reach their audiences. But this may not be the case. Although social media provides an opportunity to put forth information to a wide public audience in a way that would otherwise be near impossible for many non-profit organizations, the reality of a successful social media presence provides potentially catastrophic results for an unprepared organization.

Effective social media use requires ...


“A Matter Of Personal Pride”: How African American Football All-Stars Exposed Bigotry In New Orleans, Including Didactic Considerations And Lesson Plans, Andreas Hofbauer Apr 2020

“A Matter Of Personal Pride”: How African American Football All-Stars Exposed Bigotry In New Orleans, Including Didactic Considerations And Lesson Plans, Andreas Hofbauer

Center Austria Research

Throughout African American history, sport has played a major role in promoting integration and full participation in American society beyond the playing fields or courts. In the 1960s, after the first wave of African American athletes entering the white-dominated collegiate and professional sports leagues, active forms of protest against racial inequality in the US became gradually more relevant. Though in relatively small numbers, some African American athletes across various sports have used their privileged situation to voice the need for a revision of the system which has failed to represent and serve their people throughout American history.

This paper focuses ...


“Reds Driven Off”: The Us Media’S Propaganda During The Gulf Of Tonkin Incident, Steven M. Landry Apr 2020

“Reds Driven Off”: The Us Media’S Propaganda During The Gulf Of Tonkin Incident, Steven M. Landry

Student Publications

In 2008, the Annenburg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania conducted a poll to determine just how informed voters were following that year’s presidential election. One of the most shocking things they found was that 46.4% of those polled still believed that Saddam Hussein played a role in the terrorist attacks on the US on September 11th, 2001. No evidence had ever emerged linking him to it after 5 years of war in Iraq, but that did not matter, as “voters, once deceived, tend to stay that way despite all evidence.” Botched initial reporting can permanently ...


The National Intelligencer Validating Cowardice: How A Washington D.C. Newspaper Redefined Defeat Into Republican Victory, Wesley C. Cline Apr 2020

The National Intelligencer Validating Cowardice: How A Washington D.C. Newspaper Redefined Defeat Into Republican Victory, Wesley C. Cline

Student Publications

The fall and burning of Washington D.C. without substantial resistance by the American army and militia was initially an obvious disgrace, however the widely read Washington based newspaper, The National Intelligencer, sought to rewrite this story of defeat into a narrative highlighting republican virtue. Utilizing preexisting stereotypes perpetuated in their paper of British soldiers acting immoral, the staff of The National Intelligencer articulated that the men defending Washington had to return to their individual homes on account of the impending barbarism and savagery of the British invaders, therefore vindicating the militiamen of their lack of resistance and praising their ...


“Peace For Our Time”: Past And Present Receptions Of Neville Chamberlain’S Speech And The Munich Agreement, Erica L. Uszak Apr 2020

“Peace For Our Time”: Past And Present Receptions Of Neville Chamberlain’S Speech And The Munich Agreement, Erica L. Uszak

Student Publications

This paper covers British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's role in the Munich Agreement, as well as his September 30th speech in London, and explains how Chamberlain's attempt to negotiate "peace" with Hitler was received by the public. This paper examines three major newspapers: The London Times, The Manchester Guardian, and The New York Times, to see whether the press interpreted Chamberlain's negotiation with Hitler as a success or a failure. The paper also builds off of the newspapers' coverage to explain how Chamberlain and his policy of appeasement have been perceived through present-day.

America's Last Great Newspaper War [Table Of Contents], Mike Jaccarino Mar 2020

America's Last Great Newspaper War [Table Of Contents], Mike Jaccarino

Media Studies

A from-the-trenches view of New York Daily News and New York Post runners and photographers who would stop at nothing to break the story and squash their tabloid arch rivals.

When author Mike Jaccarino was offered a job at the Daily News in 2006, he was asked a single question: “Kid, what are you going to do to help us beat the Post?” That was the year things went sideways at the News, when The New York Post surpassed its nemesis in circulation for the first time in the history of both papers. Tasked with one job—crush the Post ...


Beauty For Ashes: Reflections On Aesthetic Experience And Suffering, Douglas Gilmour Feb 2020

Beauty For Ashes: Reflections On Aesthetic Experience And Suffering, Douglas Gilmour

Verbum Incarnatum: An Academic Journal of Social Justice

In this essay, I examine the relationship between aesthetic experience and suffering, and I specifically explore how and why the former can potentially serve to meliorate the severity of the latter. Of course, that art and beauty can provide a certain measure of comfort and healing to the afflicted is a universally acknowledged truth; however, the reasons why this should be so could be considered an equally universal mystery. “I feel we understand too little about the psychology of loss,” writes Arthur Danto, “to understand why the creation of beauty is so fitting a way of marking it.” By exploring ...


Music Therapy As A Treatment For Female Adolescents With Childhood Abuse, Janice M. Dvorkin Psy.D, Acmt, Sierra Belmares Feb 2020

Music Therapy As A Treatment For Female Adolescents With Childhood Abuse, Janice M. Dvorkin Psy.D, Acmt, Sierra Belmares

Verbum Incarnatum: An Academic Journal of Social Justice

This article describes the preference to using receptive music therapy as a modality for helping an adolescent who has PTSD from childhood abuses. Adolescence is a difficult period during the life span. The second stage of separation/individuation provides challenges to almost all adolescents. This article contains a description of the adolescent behaviors of someone who is experiencing the consequences of PTSD. Along with an explanation of why receptive music therapy is an effective therapy with this population is a case study.
