'Why Must I Be The Only Woman To Lose My Birthright?’ Gender And Modernity In Upper-Class Twentieth-Century American Life, Margaret Lowe Jun 2006

'Why Must I Be The Only Woman To Lose My Birthright?’ Gender And Modernity In Upper-Class Twentieth-Century American Life, Margaret Lowe

Margaret Lowe

A 2007 CART Summer Grant would provide the critical time and resources I need to complete detailed archival for my proposed monograph: ‘Why Must I Be the Only Woman to Lose My Birthright?’ Gender and Modernity in Upper-Class Twentieth-Century American Life. A social history, this project will highlight the ways in which upper-class men and women (mostly from New England) both resisted and shaped the emergence of American modernity. With a close analysis of a broad range of primary sources, including personal papers, letters, diaries, medical and scientific tracts, and periodical literature, my research will illuminate the specific gender and ...

The Struggle For Self-Determination: History Of The Menominee Indians Since 1854, John Bowes Mar 2006

The Struggle For Self-Determination: History Of The Menominee Indians Since 1854, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

In The Struggle for Self-Determination, Beck presents the second part of a two-book history of the Menominee Indians. His first study, Siege and Survival: History of the Menominee Indians, 1634-1856, was published in 2002 and recounts the manner in which the Menominees of Wisconsin negotiated the intrusions of French, British, and American colonizers and managed to retain both a diminished reservation and their cultural autonomy. Siege and Survival places Menominees in the forefront of the historical narrative, and Beck ably reveals that while the pressures of outsiders gradually undermined the power of the nation and its leaders in the first ...

The Great Confusion In Indian Affairs: Native Americans & Whites In The Progressive Era, John Bowes Dec 2005

The Great Confusion In Indian Affairs: Native Americans & Whites In The Progressive Era, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

According to Holm, the absence of a theortical framework caused the confusion in Federal Indian policy during the Progressive Era, a period stretching roughly from the 1890s to the 1920s. As the nineteenth century drew to a close, hardened supporters of assimilation like Richard Henry Pratt struggled to operate in an American society that began to view as worthy certain elements of American Indian culture like art and environmental preservation.


The Gilded Age & The Frontier Military: Society And Culture At Fort Assinniboine, Montana Territory, 1879 - 1905, Jeffrey Johnson Dec 2005

The Gilded Age & The Frontier Military: Society And Culture At Fort Assinniboine, Montana Territory, 1879 - 1905, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

Examines how the social norms of the Gilded Age and the decrease in Indian activity shaped life at Fort Assinniboine as a Victorian-era bastion of "civilization" in the Montana Territory. Established in 1879 and completed in 1881, the fort embodied late-19th-century views of respectability, race, and civilized living. As the need for military campaigns against Indians in the area decreased during the 1880's, the increased stability of the region allowed the personnel stationed at the post to turn their efforts toward such pursuits as plays, music, dancing, fishing, hunting, and, in winter months, billiards and bowling. Officers' wives, the ...

Review Of A Common Humanity: Kansas Populism And The Battle For Justice And Equality, 1854-1903 By O. Gene Clanton, Jeffrey Johnson Dec 2005

Review Of A Common Humanity: Kansas Populism And The Battle For Justice And Equality, 1854-1903 By O. Gene Clanton, Jeffrey Johnson

Jeffrey A. Johnson

Across the landscape of modern American politics, the "Populist moment," as Lawrence Goodwyn's 1976 study labeled it, has fascinated scholars. Indeed, late nineteenth-century Populism posed a vocal and effectual political voice for Gilded Age America's discontented. Since his original 1969 study, Kansas Populism: Ideas and Men, O. Gene Clanton has meticulously examined the fundamental role of Kansa, Populists in shaping local and national politics. A Common Humanity, with great efficacy, revisits and reinterprets Kansas's Populism as a fight for fundamental working-class rights and agrarian values, amidst industrialization gone awry.


The Conservation Of Mayan Artifacts, Russell Franks Dec 2005

The Conservation Of Mayan Artifacts, Russell Franks

Russell M. Franks

Paper will examine the conservation methods and techniques used for the preservation of Mayan artifacts. Particular emphasis will be given to the four Mayan Codices known as the Dresden, Paris, Madrid, and Grolier Codices.

These four documents are unique in that, not only have they survived until recently in less than ideal conditions for almost five hundred years, but they represent a culture whose written record was almost entirely destroyed by the religious zeal of the early Spanish missionaries.

The fact that these codices still exist today is reason enough that special attention should be given to the care and ...
