Creating The Back Ward: The Triumph Of Custodialism And The Uses Of Therapeutic Failure In Nineteenth Century Idiot Asylums, Philip M. Ferguson May 2014

Creating The Back Ward: The Triumph Of Custodialism And The Uses Of Therapeutic Failure In Nineteenth Century Idiot Asylums, Philip M. Ferguson

Education Faculty Books and Book Chapters

"My focus in this chapter is on the origin of the back ward rather than its demise. Where did the “back wards” that [Burton] Blatt and [Senator Robert] Kennedy witnessed come from in the first place? What 3 exactly were those “antecedents of the problems observed” that Blatt cited? This chapter reviews that history and argues that, in fact, there is a specific narrative to the evolution of the institutional “back ward” as an identifiable place where people with the most significant intellectual disabilities were to be incarcerated and largely forgotten."

The American Elephant: The Controversy Of Keeping Elephants In The United States, Randa Atkins Apr 2014

The American Elephant: The Controversy Of Keeping Elephants In The United States, Randa Atkins

Posters

Created for the History & Sociology of Science (HSOC) Senior Honors Thesis, overseen by Dr. Ann Greene

Instead of focusing on African and Asian elephants and how their enclosures fail to accurately simulate their wild environments, I argue that we should treat the elephants in America as if they were their own species. Elephants in the Americas have been featured in shows or confined to small enclosures, and often times, they’ve had long-lasting relationships with humans. These elephants have different needs then their wild counterparts, and should be treated as such.

The Edward Bliss Emerson Journal Project: Qualitative Research By A Non-Hierarchical Team, José G. Rigau-Pérez, Silvia E. Rabionet, Annette B. Ramírez De Arellano, Wilfredo A. Géigel, Alma Simounet, Raúl Mayo-Santana

The Qualitative Report Books

Edward Bliss Emerson (1805-1834), a younger brother of the renowned essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, lived in the Caribbean for the final three years of his life. His journal and letters are a rich manuscript source for the history of the Danish Virgin Islands (1831-1832) and Puerto Rico (1831-1834). The texts also reflect the contemporary political and cultural situation in the United States, and Edward's search for health, economic independence, intellectual stimulation and metaphysical fulfillment.

These writings ignited an intellectual passion in José G. Rigau-Pérez, a physician, medical epidemiologist, and historian in Puerto Rico. Furthering access to these ...


Weighing In On Energy-Dense Food Taxes: How Food Preferences Relate To Obesity, Kathryn Barth Apr 2014

Weighing In On Energy-Dense Food Taxes: How Food Preferences Relate To Obesity, Kathryn Barth

Posters

Created for the History & Sociology of Science (HSOC) Senior Honors Thesis, overseen by Dr. Ann Greene

Advisor: Dr. Catherine Maclean

The United States' obesity rate has climbed to 33.8%, compared to 16.9% for all Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries. Obesity is linked to a variety of chronic health conditions; obesity-related diseased accounts for at least 2.8 million deaths world-wide and $79 billion dollar annually in medical expenses. Policymakers have proposed a tax on energy-dense, or low water-content, foods as a means of curbing this epidemic. In order for a food tax to be effective, a food must be both price and weight elastic, meaning consumption of calories and weight, respectively, must respond to changes in price. While a successful tax offers a plethora of public health benefits, the failure of such a tax has the potential to be severely regressive. Empirical literature suggests that ...

An Integrated Boyhood: Coming Of Age In White Cleveland, Phillip M. Richards

Voices of Diversity

The memoir of a bookish black youth in mid-twentieth century Cleveland

When Phillip M. Richards graduated from Yale in 1972, he had fulfilled his parents’ dreams. Like many other black Clevelanders of their generation, they had come up from the South in the late forties and moved from neighborhood to neighborhood in search of better schools. As they followed bourgeois African Americans’ circular migration from Mt. Pleasant to Lee Harvard to South Taylor Road and finally to Forest Hills, Richards’s parents provided him with all of what they called “the good situations”: major work, classes at the Institute of ...
