Mendoza The Jew: Boxing, Manliness And Nationalism, Ronald Schechter, Liz Clarke Nov 2013

Mendoza The Jew: Boxing, Manliness And Nationalism, Ronald Schechter, Liz Clarke

Arts & Sciences Books

Inspired by the resounding success of Abina and the Important Men (OUP, 2011), Mendoza the Jewcombines a graphic history with primary documentation and contextual information to explore issues of nationalism, identity, culture, and historical methodology through the life story of Daniel Mendoza. Mendoza was a poor Sephardic Jew from East London who became the boxing champion of Britain in 1789. As a Jew with limited means and a foreign-sounding name, Mendoza was an unlikely symbol of what many Britons considered to be their very own "national" sport. Whereas their adversaries across the Channel reputedly settled private quarrels by dueling ...

Remarkable Russian Women In Pictures, Prose And Poetry, Marcelline Hutton Nov 2013

Remarkable Russian Women In Pictures, Prose And Poetry, Marcelline Hutton

Zea E-Books

Many Russian women of the late 19th and early 20th centuries tried to find happy marriages, authentic religious life, liberal education, and fulfilling work as artists, doctors, teachers, and political activists. Some very remarkable ones found these things in varying degrees, while others sought unsuccessfully but no less desperately to transcend the generations-old restrictions imposed by church, state, village, class, and gender.

Like a Slavic “Downton Abbey,” this book tells the stories, not just of their outward lives, but of their hearts and minds, their voices and dreams, their amazing accomplishments against overwhelming odds, and their roles as feminists and ...

Atiyeh! The Governor Victor Atiyeh Collection, Eva Guggemos, Curator Oct 2013

Atiyeh! The Governor Victor Atiyeh Collection, Eva Guggemos, Curator

Monographs, Reports, and Catalogs

Atiyeh! provides an introduction to The Governor Victor Atiyeh Collection at Pacific University and commemorates the opening exhibition of the collection in October 2013.

Victor Atiyeh served as Oregon's 32nd governor from 1979-1987. Serving at a time when budget crises were at the forefront, he took a challenging situation and created his legacy: a more efficient government and a more diversified Oregon economy. His governorship, his public service, and his private life tell of a second-generation immigrant success story, of a native Oregonian devoted to his home state, and of a leader who led in trying times, emerging widely ...


Denmark Vesey’S Revolt: The Slave Plot That Lit A Fuse To Fort Sumter, John Lofton, Peter C. Hoffer Oct 2013

Denmark Vesey’S Revolt: The Slave Plot That Lit A Fuse To Fort Sumter, John Lofton, Peter C. Hoffer

American Abolitionism and Antislavery

New edition of a classic social history

In 1822, Denmark Vesey was found guilty of plotting an insurrection—what would have been the biggest slave uprising in U.S. history. A free man of color, he was hanged along with 34 other African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, in what historians agree was probably the largest civil execution in U.S. history. At the time of Vesey’s conviction, Charleston was America’s chief slave port and one of its most racially tense cities. Whites were outnumbered by slaves three to one, and they were haunted by memories of the ...

Field And Factory: Chinese Revolutionary Posters, Molly E. Reynolds Oct 2013

Field And Factory: Chinese Revolutionary Posters, Molly E. Reynolds

Schmucker Art Catalogs

The images on display for Field and Factory, political propaganda used by the Communist Party of China during the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, construct a fictitious world. In perceiving these kinds of illustrations, the audience is asked either to visualize the society in its ideal form or unify in opposition to a national enemy. In the first half of the twentieth century, before the possibilities of the television advertisement were fully realized, posters were one of the most popular forms of propaganda: cheap to produce in mass quantities and simple enough to hang in any public building. The art form ...

Sound And The Moving Image:Critical Characteristics For Spectator Response, Kara Rader, Rafeeq I. Roberts, Matt Egizii, Jeffery Allen Sep 2013

Sound And The Moving Image:Critical Characteristics For Spectator Response, Kara Rader, Rafeeq I. Roberts, Matt Egizii, Jeffery Allen

Undergraduate Research Posters 2013

The prevailing wisdom in the film and video production industries is that audio information outweighs visual information when it comes to spectator responses, but there are few empirical studies to support this claim. In previous research, four critical characteristics of sound have been identified: (1) Music, (2) visual/sound contradictions (defined as sound that is inconsistent with audience expectations based on visual information), (3) multi-channel sound, and (4) sound quality. Building on our previous research into music and film, we have found that many researchers have looked into the question of how music affects emotions (Eschrich et al., 2008; Have ...
