Bluegrass Ain’T Just Music: Democratic Campaigning And The Resurgence Of Grassroots Organizing, Gabriel Gurule Jun 2020

Bluegrass Ain’T Just Music: Democratic Campaigning And The Resurgence Of Grassroots Organizing, Gabriel Gurule

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Grassroots organizing, as defined by Marshall Ganz, is “leadership that enables people to turn the resources they have into the power they need to make the change they want” (Ganz, 2014). The zenith of grassroots organizing was in the latter half of the twentieth century when nonprofessional organizations were able to push for significant social change like the passage of the Voting Rights Act, the withdrawal of troops from Vietnam, and even lowering of the voting age. However, following the 1970s, most claimed that grassroots organizing had reached its effective end (Stein, 1986).

However, years later, Barack Obama was elected ...

Special attention will be given to databases hosted on the EBSCOhost platform.


Redesign Your Writing & Research Assignments, Melissa Forbes, Kerri Odess-Harnish, Meggan D. Smith Jun 2020

Redesign Your Writing & Research Assignments, Melissa Forbes, Kerri Odess-Harnish, Meggan D. Smith

All Musselman Library Staff Works

With so many variables to account for in the fall, the writing and research assignments we designed for a 14-week semester with regular in-person access to campus resources may no longer be realistic or effective. Join Melissa Forbes, Director of the Writing Center and First-Year Writing, and Research & Instruction Librarians Kerri Odess-Harnish and Meggan Smith for tips on redesigning writing and research assignments to help students succeed whatever the semester looks like. A short 10-minute presentation will be followed by Q&A and open discussion.

Accessible, Adaptable, Affordable: How Oer And Low-Cost Materials Can Future-Proof Your Courses, Janelle L. Wertzberger, Mary R. Elmquist, Sarah Appedu

All Musselman Library Staff Works

Janelle Wertzberger, Mary Elmquist, Sarah Appendu. Sarah Principato (Environmental Studies), Alecea Standlee (Sociology), Mercedes Valmisa (Philosophy) When COVID-19 caused an emergency pivot to online teaching and learning, students and faculty suddenly needed course materials that were accessible and adaptable in that context. Open educational resources (OER) offer flexibility and resiliency in any mode of instruction, while simultaneously reducing inequities among students. Faculty can employ other strategies to reduce student costs, as well. Hosted by the Musselman Library Scholarly Communications team, this session will include a short presentation, testimonials from faculty who are already teaching with OER and other low-cost materials ...


Queens, Contracts, And Colonialism: A Brief Overview Of Copyright Law In History And Culture, Sarah Appedu Jun 2020

Queens, Contracts, And Colonialism: A Brief Overview Of Copyright Law In History And Culture, Sarah Appedu

All Musselman Library Staff Works

The dominant retelling of the history of copyright, from the invention of the printing press through the modern day, provides context into the economic, political, and social factors that influenced copyright law's influence on American culture. This context helps undergraduate authors orient their scholarship within the larger scholarly communications system so that they can more easily understand the terms of their author agreements and how they fit into the larger culture around copyright. However, the traditional retelling of copyright's history neglects the ways in which copyright served to reinforce social inequalities-- most notably the fact that at the ...


Leaving The Tech Funnel: How Top Students Come To Reject "Prestigious Jobs", Evan Cui Jun 2020

Leaving The Tech Funnel: How Top Students Come To Reject "Prestigious Jobs", Evan Cui

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Recent sociological literature has identified the career funneling effect as a cultural and institutional social process which constructs certain career pathways as “prestigious” and leads a disproportionate number of students from top universities to pursue these pathways. Yet, if these social forces are so strong, why do some students with the means to pursue these pathways consciously reject them in pursuit of alternative, less prestigious pathways? My analysis focuses on computer science students and the pathway into prestigious Big Tech companies, a relatively recent and understudied pathway for top students. Using a combination of formal in-depth interviews and informal discussions ...

What Is Enough?: Understanding The Ostracization Of Mixed People And How They Reaffirm Their Identity., Kiera Miles Jun 2020

What Is Enough?: Understanding The Ostracization Of Mixed People And How They Reaffirm Their Identity., Kiera Miles

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

As a mixed-race woman, and a person who has mixed identifying friends, I understand the constant struggle of having your identity being invalidated. Of never feeling acceptable enough of any one identity that I carry. It is due to this understanding why I decided to center my research around mix identity and the question of "am I enough" that I believe is present in mix identifying people; however, this question may change in variation from person to person but regardless it remains at the core issue.

In order to understand how fellow mix-identifying people navigate their identity, I plan to ...


For The Sake Of The Environment?: Policing And Control In Glacier Bay National Park, Cecilia Slane Jun 2020

For The Sake Of The Environment?: Policing And Control In Glacier Bay National Park, Cecilia Slane

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

In the years leading up to the creation of Glacier Bay National Monument in 1925, white scientists and explorers from the contiguous US began describing Alaska as a beautiful and awe-inspiring place - a change from its previous depiction as an empty expanse of land. They began lobbying for the Glacier Bay area to be preserved based on its value as a laboratory for scientific inquiry and as a place to be set aside for future generations to appreciate. However, the Tlingit people who lived in the area were not informed about the creation of the park, or even that Alaska ...


Hiding In Plain Sight: Stigmatization Of Emotional Stress Among Law Enforcement Officers At The Department Of Public Safety And Training In Salem, Oregon, Sarah Meyr May 2020

Hiding In Plain Sight: Stigmatization Of Emotional Stress Among Law Enforcement Officers At The Department Of Public Safety And Training In Salem, Oregon, Sarah Meyr

Academic Excellence Showcase Proceedings

This proposed study will examine the ways in which junior police officers perceive the stigma of emotional stress, and in turn how the stigma is perceived by more seasoned officers. Is the stigma all that stands in the way of officers accessing professional services to help them develop ways to cope with the stress accumulated in their official capacities? What, exactly, is at the root of the perceived stigma regarding professional counseling or the need to seek assistance? Drawing on personal observation and interviews with officers at the Oregon Department of Public Safety and Training, this study will explore the ...


Art Of The Cadaver: Spiritual And Secular In The East And West, Wanyan Ma May 2020

Art Of The Cadaver: Spiritual And Secular In The East And West, Wanyan Ma

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

How does the image of the decrepit dead body manifest itself in art? Enlightenment thought had problematically conceived of Europe as at the forefront of knowledge while the rest of the world lagged behind. Christ's body is the original cadaver in Western images, but around the seventeenth century the trend of more secular understandings and depictions of the dead body arose. European anatomical knowledge was also making its way to East Asia around the same time. Non-Europeans were presumed to either lack the investigative spirit or more sinisterly, lack the skill. However, Japanese Buddhist art of the kusozu, or ...


Library Support For Course Materials, Sara Duff, Rich Gause, Sarah A. Norris May 2020

Library Support For Course Materials, Sara Duff, Rich Gause, Sarah A. Norris

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Whether you’re teaching online or face-to-face, UCF Libraries provide access to a variety of materials that can support your courses — from journal articles, streaming videos, e-books, and more. But, these materials have a wide variety of access models that are not always evident. In this session, UCF Librarians Sara Duff, Rich Gause, and Sarah Norris will share how to navigate the plethora of resources available to support teaching and learning with a particular emphasis on resources that can be used during remote teaching during emergency circumstances. How to access these materials and ensure they’re accessible by students, as ...


Congressional Committee Resources On Space Policy During The 115th Congress (2017-2018): Providing Context And Insight Into Us Government Space Policy, Bert Chapman May 2020

Congressional Committee Resources On Space Policy During The 115th Congress (2017-2018): Providing Context And Insight Into Us Government Space Policy, Bert Chapman

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Article 1 of the US Constitution assigns the US Congress numerous responsibilities. These include creating new laws, revising existing laws, funding government programs, and conducting oversight of these programs' performance. Oversight of US Government agency space policy programs is executed by various congressional space policy committees including the House and Senate Science Committees, Armed Services, and Appropriations Committees. These committees conduct many public hearings on space policy, which invite expert witnesses to testify on US space policy programs and feature debate on the strengths and weaknesses of these programs. Documentation produced by these committees is widely available to the public ...


Mass Media's Ideology Of Middle Eastern Terror And The Impossibility Of The Individual, Mohammed Khalid May 2020

Mass Media's Ideology Of Middle Eastern Terror And The Impossibility Of The Individual, Mohammed Khalid

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The so-called "war on terror" launched in the aftermath of 9/11 created a seismic shift in public discourse about a terrorism threat. Shaping this discourse was a galvanized U.S. media with a dominating ideology about the Middle Eastern terrorist, the ISIS member, the Jihadist, etc. As Arabs and Muslims became increasingly visible to the U.S. public, panic-riddled reactions to this "Middle Eastern terrorist" immediately mutated to drumbeats of war to punish "others" for acts of terrorism, a group of others. This project examines how U.S. media is an important influencer in shaping public opinion throughout the ...


Compounded Effects Of The Model Minority Stereotype And Lack Of Social Capital Among Vietnamese American Students, Brooke Olivia Quach May 2020

Compounded Effects Of The Model Minority Stereotype And Lack Of Social Capital Among Vietnamese American Students, Brooke Olivia Quach

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This study hopes to document how structures within the public education system affects the educational attainment of first-generation Vietnamese American students. Educational attainment significantly depends on student's social networks and resources, as these dynamics can affect whether they feel like they can attain a higher degree after high school. In other words, social capital and socioeconomic status can have a significant impact an individual's aspirations. In this study, I examine and investigate the educational attainment of Vietnamese American students and the obstacles they face in applying to and attending college. This attainment process includes the different variables that ...


Human Suffering In North Korea, Jessup Jong May 2020

Human Suffering In North Korea, Jessup Jong

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Why is there a growing divide between communities working on human rights advocacy and humanitarian aid delivery in North Korea? At first glance, it is easy to think that humanitarian aid workers and human rights advocates for North Korea must be working towards the same goals because they sound similar. The definition of the two areas indeed overlap, but there has arguably been no reconciliation or formal cooperation. Whether it happens in academic scholarship, politics, or personal Twitter feuds, professionals working on these two areas describe an increasing sense of divide that often puts them in conflict. Three factors (ideological ...


Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind: Is Trauma Too Important To Be Erased, Eleanor Mcnamee May 2020

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind: Is Trauma Too Important To Be Erased, Eleanor Mcnamee

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Trauma is largely responsible for shaping personalities and self-concepts. Tragedies in life can cause shifts in behavior or can negatively affect mental health in the way of disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, or depression. Furthermore, the effect of traumatic events on identity depends on a plethora of factors including spirituality, values, gender, the details of the event (e.g. a natural disaster vs. sexual assault), and whether justice was reached. In this regard, whether a traumatic event will help or hinder identity development is nebulous. Any helpful changes due to trauma can also come at any point after the event ...

The Tweet Speaks For Itself: A Case Study Of The "St. Louis Manifest" Twitter Account, Zili Chang May 2020

The Tweet Speaks For Itself: A Case Study Of The "St. Louis Manifest" Twitter Account, Zili Chang

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Historians have long studied the concept of a "usable past" understood as the selective application of the past to the present to establish identity or achieve a goal. In the twenty-first century, this concept has become pertinent to social media platforms, which have changed the way humans engage in activism. One important intersection of history, social media, and activism converges in a Twitter account titled "St. Louis Manifest." The account is a curated site of memory, and as the most recent evolution of the story of the 1939 Jewish refugee ship, the M.S. St. Louis, it serves as a ...


Why Can't We Be Friends: Use Of Imagined Contact In Changing Attitudes Towards Outgroups, Audrey Greder, Rachel Kain, Olivia Lutz, Rachel Miyazaki May 2020

Why Can't We Be Friends: Use Of Imagined Contact In Changing Attitudes Towards Outgroups, Audrey Greder, Rachel Kain, Olivia Lutz, Rachel Miyazaki

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The contact hypothesis states that a person or group is more likely to have a positive attitude towards an outgroup when put into direct contact with a member or several members of an outgroup. Research has shown, however, that simply imagining the contact can illicit the same outcomes in attitude changes. An applied research experiment was conducted to test whether the used of imagined contact scenarios would improve attitudes towards outgroups. Partially replicating an experiment by Bagci, Piyale, Bircek, and Ebcim (2018), seventy-six participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups, including, the control group, the imagined contact group ...


Selective Censorship: How Bollywood Is Pushing The Boundaries Of Indian Censorship Law, Jordan Hall May 2020

Selective Censorship: How Bollywood Is Pushing The Boundaries Of Indian Censorship Law, Jordan Hall

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Indian filmmakers are struggling with the ever changing governmental beliefs on censorship throughout the different eras of political rule over the past 20 years. The government has strict rules on what film can and cannot show, yet the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) often ignores rules of violence and instead focuses their energy on restricting scenes considered anti-Indian or too sexual. While literature on the issue focuses on censorship under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), researchers do not compare the censorship the BJP enforces to the censorship other ruling parties enforce. The research will take three movies from three ...


"A Tryst With Animosity": The Souring Of Indo-American Relations From 1947 To 1971, Aditya Dev Varma May 2020

"A Tryst With Animosity": The Souring Of Indo-American Relations From 1947 To 1971, Aditya Dev Varma

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This paper explores multi-decade tensions in Indo-American relations, emphasizing the formative nature of the colonial legacy on India's foreign policy and resulting conflict with the Truman Doctrine. By examining the popular perception of foreign policy through newspapers and State Department records, I illustrate how each nation's sovereign agenda colored their reception of the other's global initiatives. The year 1947 marked a point of departure in American foreign policy in two respects; a renewed commitment to economic and military engagement with global affairs under the presidency of Harry Truman, and an expanded interest in diplomacy with developing nations ...


From Outside The Beltway: Minorities In The Early-20th Century Labor Movement, Hunter Douglas Whann May 2020

From Outside The Beltway: Minorities In The Early-20th Century Labor Movement, Hunter Douglas Whann

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This paper argues that organized labor's racially discriminatory practices of the early 1900s effectively served to disenfranchise African Americans and immigrants from the American political process. Twentieth-century notions of race and ethnicity limited broad sympathy amongst minorities and immigrants, further dividing the labor movement. Because unions provide labor leaders a rank-and-file membership to mobilize in support of candidates, politicians are receptive to their preferences. Labor unions' exclusion of minorities therefore robbed them of a voice in government. Racism abounded in the United States, not just within the labor movement. However, such discrimination served to withhold both economic and political ...


Undoing The Leges: Marketization And Citizens United, Emily Ann Donlevy May 2020

Undoing The Leges: Marketization And Citizens United, Emily Ann Donlevy

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission was hailed by some as a victory for free speech and economic freedom, but others decried the outcome as a prioritization of corporate interests over the individual. What both groups failed to notice was that a shift had occurred in law itself: the content was no longer legal or political. Using the work of Wendy Brown and David Harvey, I will track the cause and implications of this shift. Brown describes the process of marketization, in which the content of the political is hollowed out and replaced ...


Veni, Vidi, Vendidi: The Economics Of Cultural Change In The Roman West, Alexander Reed May 2020

Veni, Vidi, Vendidi: The Economics Of Cultural Change In The Roman West, Alexander Reed

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The cultural shift which occurred in the Roman West during the final century BC and first century AD marks a watershed moment in European history, as the inhabitants of Rome's vast imperial holdings began to abandon their old ways of life in favor of a new set of Greco-Roman customs and values, an event of indelible influence upon the languages, legal systems, and cultural traditions which arose following the collapse of the central government in 476. Numerous theories have been put forward to explain this dramatic shift in the cultural landscape of the period, from suggestions that the common ...


An Examination Of Non-Traditional Bridal Wear And Its Primary Consumer, Erica Thalmann, Kristina Dimaria May 2020

An Examination Of Non-Traditional Bridal Wear And Its Primary Consumer, Erica Thalmann, Kristina Dimaria

Senior Honors Projects

Bridal wear has traditionally been viewed as big white dresses. But as times change, so do brides’ preferences for bridal wear. Jumpsuits, rompers, short dresses, and other “non-traditional” choices are experiencing an increased demand in the market. Unfortunately, brides who seek these options are often not met with a promising assortment. This study examined primary consumers of non-traditional bridal wear. Specifically, we sought to find out whether women who belong to the LGBTQ community choose to consume more non-traditional bridal wear compared to heterosexual brides. The study also examined through which channels (e.g., online, in store, etc.) consumers predominantly ...
