Redistricting And Discriminatory Purpose , Michael J. Pitts 2010 American University Washington College of Law

Redistricting And Discriminatory Purpose , Michael J. Pitts

American University Law Review

State and local governments covered by the preclearance provision in Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act will soon be submitting their redistricting plans to the federal government (most often the United States Attorney General) for approval. The Attorney General can deny preclearance to a redistricting plan by finding that the plan violates Section 5’s discriminatory purpose standard. Currently, no detailed framework has been developed for determining when a redistricting plan fails to satisfy the discriminatory purpose standard. This Article fills that void by proposing such a framework - one built from judicial opinions, statutory language, legislative history, executive branch ...


In Defense Of Feres: An Unfairly Maligned Opinion, Paul F. Figley 2010 American University Washington College of Law

In Defense Of Feres: An Unfairly Maligned Opinion, Paul F. Figley

American University Law Review

The Supreme Court’s 1950 Feres v. United States decision held that when it enacted the Federal Tort Claims Act Congress did not intend to waive sovereign immunity for injuries to members of the military arising out of activity incident to their service. The Court’s decision was influenced by the long history of efforts to enact a general tort claims bill that would free Congress from the burden of processing claims against the government, as well as the case law, statutes, and procedures pertaining to service-members’ injuries prior to enactment of the Federal Tort Claims Act. This Article examines ...

Jihad Sheilas Or Media Martyrs: Muslim Women And The Media, Julie N. Posetti 2010 University of Canberra

Jihad Sheilas Or Media Martyrs: Muslim Women And The Media, Julie N. Posetti

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Muslim women are both highly visible members of one of the most marginalised groups in Western society and the most vulnerable to vilification and media stereotyping, suffering the 'triple-whammy' effect of sexism, racism and religious bigotry. Ubiquitously portrayed as veiled, they are concurrently represented as oppressed and radical non-conformists, as threatened and threatening, as passive sexslaves and exotic, erotic beings. Symbolised generically by the distinctive religious clothing some choose to wear, Muslim women of all cultures have become the most recognisable, visible targets of racism on the streets, yet at the same time they are almost invisible and voiceless in ...


Eye And Ear To Soothe The Savage Heart, Madeleine T. Kelly 2010 University of Wollongong

Eye And Ear To Soothe The Savage Heart, Madeleine T. Kelly

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Tiny Little Wonderful Worlds (2010) was curated by Pat Hoffie and featured artists Zoe Porter, Abe Garcia, Dacchi Dang, Jennifer Herd, Madeleine Kelly, Gordon Hookey and Arryn Snowball.

This installation featured individual dioramas presented as a “peep show” at South Bank parklands. Based on South Bank’s new developments at a time of demolition of older aspects of the precinct, the work played on the imagination of what might unfold after the unveiling of the new developments behind the scrim surrounds erected to keep the public away.
