The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer Dec 1999

The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer

Terry Irving

This article argues that the modernization of the Australian Labor Party was not inevitable or necessary. The party did not modernize because it was overly dominated by trade unions, because society had changed, or because class was no longer central. Instead the transformation of the party was the result of a series of political struggles, in which the modernizers grasped new resources in the changing public sphere - the dynamic new media of post-war Australia.

Creating Criteria: An Ethnographic Short Story, Carolyn Ellis Dec 1999

Creating Criteria: An Ethnographic Short Story, Carolyn Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

In this work, the author introspects about the steps she takes when evaluating narrative ethnographies. Her story shows how she thinks about and reacts to alternative genres of writing. Optimally, she tries to feel and think with the story, moving back and forth as the two processes merge. She tries to immerse herself in the flow of the story, until she is unable to stop thinking about or feeling the experience. Along the way, she asks questions about what she has learned from the story, and she evaluates the writer’s literary strategies, ethical concerns, and the degree to which ...

Martin (history, Univ. of California) and Sullivan (W.E.B. DuBois Inst., Harvard) have compiled a massive encyclopedia featuring 730 entries on civil rights in America. Among the 332 contributors are such major scholars as Gerald Early, Frances Fox Pliven, Robin Kelley, and Kermit Hall, as well as a number of less well-known students of this topic. The editors have conceived their project broadly by transcending the traditional focus on African Americans. ~ Library Journal


Cork And Community: Postwar Blackface Minstrelsy In The Midwest, Howard Sacks Dec 1999

Cork And Community: Postwar Blackface Minstrelsy In The Midwest, Howard Sacks

Howard Sacks

Nearly a century-and-a-half after urban professional entertainers first attained instant popularity for music, dance, and humor performed in blackface, amateur minstrels in the rural Midwest continued to pack school auditoriums and smalltown theaters with their homespun variety. Blackening their hands and faces with storebought makeup (the modern equivalent of the burnt cork of the nineteenth century), farmers and schoolteachers sang spirited renditions of “There's Nothin Like a Minstrel Show” mechanics and school board members donned tutus in an exotic ballet burlesque; and a realtor with a rich baritone sang his version of “Mammy,” a perennial favorite.

’Want To Build A Miracle City?’: War Housing In Wichita, Julie Courtwright Dec 1999

’Want To Build A Miracle City?’: War Housing In Wichita, Julie Courtwright

Julie Courtwright

Now behold the day of the war industries,” wrote famed Kansas editor William Allen White in 1942. “Towns like Wichita, Pittsburg, Parsons are being transformed.” And transformed they were. Wichita, seemingly overnight, changed forever from what one citizen called a “sleepy little cow town” to a booming city that “shook off the doldrums of the Great Depression to become one of the nation’s busiest military production centers” in the wake of World War II.


Should We All Be More English? Liang Qichao, Rudolf Von Jhering, And Rights, Stephen C. Angle Dec 1999

Should We All Be More English? Liang Qichao, Rudolf Von Jhering, And Rights, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Rudolf von Jhering (1818-92) published Der Kampf ums Recht (The Struggle for Law) in 1872. He was already regarded as one of Germany’s most important legal philosophers, and Der Kampf helped to ensure a world-wide reputation. His argument that people should be less like the “adult children” of China and more like the English found audiences everywhere, including China, where Der Kampf was translated between 1900 and 1901. Jhering’s doctrines stimulated Liang Qichao (1873-1929), one of China’s leading thinkers, to publish “Lun Quanli Sixiang (On Rights Consciousness),” in 1902 as part of his manifesto On the New ...
