The First Lady As Formal Advisor To The President: When East (Wing) Meets West (Wing), Maryanne Borrelli Dec 2001

The First Lady As Formal Advisor To The President: When East (Wing) Meets West (Wing), Maryanne Borrelli

Government and International Relations Faculty Publications

Drawing on archival research, this article examines how the position of the first lady has been formally defined, and how that definition has affected presidential advising by first ladies. Three first ladies-Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosalynn Carter, and Hillary Rodham Clinton-have served in a formal capacity within the executive branch. In each instance, the first lady's appointment, and subsequent exercise of formal and informal power, carried significant implications for our understanding of this position, the presidency, and the political system.


Managing Landmine Casualty Data, Cisr Jmu Dec 2001

Managing Landmine Casualty Data, Cisr Jmu

CISR Studies and Reports

The Mine Action Information Center (MAIC) at James Madison University implemented this project to develop a framework for the systematic collection and management of landmine casualty data. The project was premised on the lack of an adequate system for collecting and managing landmine casualty data on a global basis. Data on landmine and UXO casualties is being collected in a systematic manner in some countries, but worldwide, it is not being collected in a comprehensive or consistent manner that allows it to be compared cross-nationally and aggregated globally. The lack of an adequate system hampers the ability of mine action ...


Natural Resource Access And Interracial Associations: Black And White Subsistence Fishing In The Mississippi Delta, Ralph B. Brown, John F. Toth Jr. Dec 2001

Natural Resource Access And Interracial Associations: Black And White Subsistence Fishing In The Mississippi Delta, Ralph B. Brown, John F. Toth Jr.

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Using qualitative data gathered over approximately twenty months, we examine how racial divisions between black and white fishers factor into access, harvesting strategies, and use of natural resources in subsistence fishing activities in the Mississippi Delta. Though both races engage in subsistence fishing for many of the same reasons -- a sense of autonomy and economic independence -- clear differences were manifest in their access, harvesting strategies, and utilization of the fish. We document these differences. We conclude that the social relations between white and black subsistence fishers, as they interact with and through the landscape, appear to perpetuate the characteristics of ...

Foucault On The Farm: Producing Swine And Subjects, Mary E. Curran Dec 2001

Foucault On The Farm: Producing Swine And Subjects, Mary E. Curran

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

In this paper, through a discussion of an ongoing conflict about regulation of industrial farming in Kentucky, I use Foucault's (1980a, 1980b, 1991) work on governmentality and power and knowledge to analyze how the power relations embedded within processes of governmentality and knowledge production act to marginalize certain groups while producing new regimes of truth and altering subjectivities. My approach differs from that of current academic research and American mass media reporting of the environmental and social impacts of industrial animal agriculture. Academic literature has largely focused upon either the structural changes resulting from the industrialization of agriculture or ...


Anger, Boycott, Secession–A Clash Of Perspectives: The Closing Of A High School In An Appalachian County, John Verburg Dec 2001

Anger, Boycott, Secession–A Clash Of Perspectives: The Closing Of A High School In An Appalachian County, John Verburg

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This research investigates the closing of a small, rural community school. Even though the community waged a tenacious effort to save their school, it closed anyway. Today, in its place, sits a new, private, community school. This research focuses on the dynamics of that drama. The research design consists of multiple levels of interviews (personal, telephone, and focus group), archival reviews of local newspapers, and analysis of video tapes of the monthly meetings o fthe local school board. Additionally, the community shared with the researcher large boxes of confidential legal documents used in the court proceedings against the county. The ...

Labor Use By Small-Scale Conventional And Sustainable Farmers In Tennessee, Fisseha Tegegne, Surendra P. Singh, Enefiok Ekanem, Safdar Muhammad Dec 2001

Labor Use By Small-Scale Conventional And Sustainable Farmers In Tennessee, Fisseha Tegegne, Surendra P. Singh, Enefiok Ekanem, Safdar Muhammad

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

A comparison of labor use by small-scale conventional and sustainable farmers has received little attention from researchers. However, the issue is significant given the growing emphasis being placed on a sustainable farming system, which is considered to require more labor and managerial input compared to the conventional one. This study analyzes labor use of small-scale farmers in Tennessee by classifying them into conventional and sustainable categories. The data were collected using face-to-face interviews of randomly selected farmers. Analysis shows that farm operators were the primary source of labor for production and farm business management both for sustainable and conventional farmers ...


Outdoor Recreation Constraints: An Examination Of Race, Gender, And Rural Dwelling, Cassandra Y. Johnson, J. M. Bowker, H. Ken Cordell Dec 2001

Outdoor Recreation Constraints: An Examination Of Race, Gender, And Rural Dwelling, Cassandra Y. Johnson, J. M. Bowker, H. Ken Cordell

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

We assess whether traditionally marginalized groups in American society (African-Americans, women, rural dwellers) perceive more constraints to outdoor recreation participation than other groups. A series of logistic regressions are applied to a national recreation survey and used to model the probability that individuals perceive certain constraints to participating in outdoor recreation activities. Twelve constraints related to health, facilities, socioeconomic standing, and other personal factors are examined for both participants and nonparticipants of outdoor recreation. We model the probability that individuals report being constrained in participating in their favorite activities as a function of race, gender, and rural residence. In addition ...


Common Cause: A Comparative Case Study Of Three Alabama Communities Organizing Against Landfills, Lani Merritt Dec 2001

Common Cause: A Comparative Case Study Of Three Alabama Communities Organizing Against Landfills, Lani Merritt

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper documents the organizational strategies of three Alabama community groups that have mobilized against the siting of municipal landfills. All three communities are predominately African-American, rural, and lower-income. The framework of environmental justice is applied to understand common elements of the three communities' experiences. The primary focus, however, is on differences between the cases that brought forward markedly different strategies. The purpose of this paper is to critically examine the different approaches taken by each community, and to identify factors and strategies that were crucial to success or failure from the perspective of landfill opponents. Responsiveness of local political ...

Surveys Of Calling Amphibians In North Dakota, Douglas H. Johnson, Ronald D. Batie Dec 2001

Surveys Of Calling Amphibians In North Dakota, Douglas H. Johnson, Ronald D. Batie

USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center

Amphibians have received increased attention in recent years from the scientific community and general public alike. Many populations throughout the world have declined or have been extirpated, often without an apparent cause. Concern about the status of amphibians has translated into a growing interest in systematic and statistically sound monitoring programs. Several extensive efforts to monitor populations of calling amphibians are in place, and more are under development. Necessary for the design of appropriate surveys is an understanding of the behavior, especially vocalization, of the various species, and how it varies by geographic location and environmental conditions. In 1995 we ...
