Social Discipline In Scotland, 1560-1610, Michael Graham Sep 2002

Social Discipline In Scotland, 1560-1610, Michael Graham

Michael F. Graham

This volume is an excellent introduction to Calvinist morals’ control in sixteenth-century Geneva, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Scotland. The Calvinists were typically seen as stricter than Lutherans, Catholics, or Anglicans—and in some ways as strict as groups associated with the Radical Reformation. The six case studies presented here are based largely on archival research. They explore the Calvinist endeavor to set high standards of behavior and to enforce them through the consistory.


Faculty Diversity, Kyle Scafide, Barbara Johnson Aug 2002

Faculty Diversity, Kyle Scafide, Barbara Johnson

Kyle Scafide

This article presents a broad view of issues related to faculty diversity. Headings include Demographics, The Growth of Faculty Diversity as an Ideal, and Barriers in the Academic Workplace. Race, ethnicity, and gender are the most common characteristics that institutions observe in order to measure faculty diversity. An even broader approach to faculty diversity involves age, socioeconomic background, national origin, sexual orientation, and diverse learning styles and opinions. Until the latter part of the twentieth century, the professoriate in the western world was composed almost exclusively of privileged, heterosexual males of Caucasian descent. Higher education institutions are generally concerned with ...


The Evolution Of Converso Literature: The Writings Of The Converted Jews Of Medieval Spain, Gregory Kaplan May 2002

The Evolution Of Converso Literature: The Writings Of The Converted Jews Of Medieval Spain, Gregory Kaplan

Gregory B. Kaplan

During the early 15th century, many Spanish Jews converted to Christianity to escape persecution in the wake of widespread anti-Jewish violence in the 1390s. The extent to which the literature written by these conversos accurately reflects their social and legal alienation from the Old Christian (non-converso) population has long been debated. This book is the first comprehensive examination of this literature, setting its parameters and providing illustrations from a broad range of converso texts. Kaplan analyzes representative literary works from three stages of the socio-religious disenfranchisement of the conversos, from the initiation of legal discrimination in 1474, through Isabel's ...

Teaching Urban Planning And Public Policy: Developing A "City As Classroom" Model At Two New England Colleges, Steven Corey, Mark Motte Dec 2001

Teaching Urban Planning And Public Policy: Developing A "City As Classroom" Model At Two New England Colleges, Steven Corey, Mark Motte

Steven H. Corey

Emerging trends in teaching urban geography, city planning, and public policy studies resonate with calls from think tanks, research associations, and most recently the Carnegie Foundation, for undergraduate education to be "reinvented" as interdisciplinary, inquiry-based, and experiential. This paper outlines a model that offers some success with inquiry-based learning strategies in the geography program at Rhode Island College and the urban studies program at Worcester State College. In grappling with the knotty problems of contemporary urban development/redevelopment policies in Providence and Worcester (downtown revitalization, infrastructure improvements, retail/commercial strategies, industrial restructuring, shifting labor markets, neighborhood planning, housing development, etc ...

Kit Carson And The 'Americanization' Of New Mexico, Barton Barbour

Barton H. Barbour

This article appeared as a lead article in the New Mexico Historical Review, 77:2 (Spring 2002), and as one of a dozen biographies in Richard W. Etulain's New Mexico Lives: Profiles and Historical Stories (2002).

For a sample, see the following introductory paragraph: Dateline: Fort Lyon, Colorado Territory, May 1868 Kit ...

Shattered Lives: Making Sense Of September 11th And Its Aftermath, Carolyn Ellis Dec 2001

Shattered Lives: Making Sense Of September 11th And Its Aftermath, Carolyn Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

During the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, the author was on a plane headed to Dulles Airport. She narrates and analyzes her experience in terms of how she reframed and made sense of these events. After she first resisted the frame of terrorism, her perceptions were influenced by her location during the attacks as well as by personal experiences of loss, both current (her mother's and mother-in-law's deteriorating health) and past (her brother's death on a commercial airplane). Through autoethnography, she shows that everyday stories of those not directly involved in the attacks, yet devastated by ...


Sanitized For Your Protection: Medical Discourse And The Denial Of Incest In The United States, 1890-1940, Lynn Sacco Dec 2001

Sanitized For Your Protection: Medical Discourse And The Denial Of Incest In The United States, 1890-1940, Lynn Sacco

Lynn Sacco

This article examines medical discourses from 1890 to 1940, when physicians and reformers uncovered, and then dissembled, evidence that white, middle- and upper-class American men were sexually abusing their daughters. Doctors had long recognized that children could acquire gonorrhea, but they believed that infections were confined primarily to poor and working-class girls who had been sexually assaulted. In the 1890s, doctors began to incorporate new technologies into the diagnostic process and they were shocked to discover that gonorrhea infection was so common among girls that they feared it was epidemic. Doctors claimed that concurrent infections in fathers and daughters from ...

Their Story/My Story/Our Story: Including The Researcher's Experience In Interview Research, Carolyn Ellis, L Berger Dec 2001

Their Story/My Story/Our Story: Including The Researcher's Experience In Interview Research, Carolyn Ellis, L Berger

Carolyn Ellis

Interviewing has become the window on the world of experience for both researchers and professionals. But as familiar as interviewing is now, its seemingly straightforward methodology raises more questions than ever. What is the interviewer’s image of those who are being interviewed? Who is the interviewer in the eyes of the respondent? From where do interviewers obtain questions and respondents get the answers that they communicate in interviews? How do the institutional auspices of interviewing shape interview data? Drawing upon leading experts from a wide range of disciplines to address these and related questions, The Handbook of Interviewing offers ...


The Natufian Human Skeletal Remains From Wadi Hammeh 27 (Jordan), Steve Webb, Phillip C. Edwards Dec 2001

The Natufian Human Skeletal Remains From Wadi Hammeh 27 (Jordan), Steve Webb, Phillip C. Edwards

Steve Webb

This report describes skeletal remains from the early Natufian site of Wadi Hammeh 27 in Jordan. At least seven individuals are represented, and although small, the collection is notable for the eclecticism of its mortuary practice. Modes of mortuary disposal and ritual include a single-primary burial, a collective-secondary burial, burnt human cranial fragments disposed in residential contexts, and the ochre staining of bones. The two burials come from the lowest phase of the site, with fragmentary burials and smaller amounts of material issuing from the upper phases. The primary inhumation is marked by a neighbouring pit, which seems to be ...
