Whiskey In Early America, Grace Bellino 2018 University of North Georgia

Whiskey In Early America, Grace Bellino

International Social Science Review

Following the American Revolution (1775-1781), Americans turned to whiskey as their spirit of choice simply because it was readily available. Whiskey would shape the identity of the early republic after the Whiskey Rebellion (1791-1794) and set the precedent for frontier insurrection and the authority of the federal government. Whiskey became a crucial contributor to the budding economy of early America and the establishment of distilleries and the ease of distribution of the drink opened up the development of the West. Whiskey became so prolific in the first few decades of the United States that even today, it remains a significant ...


Voters’ Job Approval Ratings And State Legislator Perceptions Of Gubernatorial Influence, Jeffrey E. Cohen 2018 University of North Georgia

Voters’ Job Approval Ratings And State Legislator Perceptions Of Gubernatorial Influence, Jeffrey E. Cohen

International Social Science Review

This paper asks whether voters’ job approval ratings of governors affect state legislator perceptions of gubernatorial influence in the legislative process. This question is a departure from existing research on job approval ratings as a legislative resource in two senses. First, most existing research focuses on presidents; there is much less research on governors, who are studied in this paper. Second, existing research looks at success rates, such as the percentage of roll call votes that the president’s or governor’s side won. Success rate measures may be biased in several ways. One, many presidential and gubernatorial policy proposals ...


Local Economies On Their Minds: Explaining European Preferences For Geographic Origin Food Labels, Carol D. Miller 2018 University of North Georgia

Local Economies On Their Minds: Explaining European Preferences For Geographic Origin Food Labels, Carol D. Miller

International Social Science Review

Values-based labeling has been promoted as a way to promote quality and competitiveness in food production. Geographical origin is one criterion that consumers use to to make food purchases based upon their beliefs, concerns and perceptions about the environment and agricultural and rural development. Through statistical analyses of data from the Eurobarometer 77.2 survey from 2012 this research identifies individual differences between Europeans from 27 countries (N = 26,593) and examines which factors influence the importance consumers place on geographic origin versus price, quality and brands of food. The study also tests whether concern about the environment or concern ...


Virtuous Discourse In The Specialty Coffee Sector: How Social Responsibility Practices Fragment Pursuits For A Supply Chain, Jane H. Motsinger 2018 University of New Mexico

Virtuous Discourse In The Specialty Coffee Sector: How Social Responsibility Practices Fragment Pursuits For A Supply Chain, Jane H. Motsinger

Geography ETDs

A diversity of public and private initiatives strive to address the human-environment challenges confronting the global coffee industry, including certifications like Fairtrade, direct trade sourcing models, and efforts led by NGOs. Research examines the outcomes of major certification programs and the private initiatives of corporations like Starbucks. Much less is known about the business practices of the small specialty coffee businesses that increasingly advertise sustainable business practices. Yet, their collective business practices likely influence the industry-wide efforts to achieve a sustainable supply chain. This research examines how small specialty coffee roasting and importing companies represent their socially responsible business practices ...

Using Landscapes To Tell Spatial Stories, Sandra Schmidt 2018 Columbia University

Using Landscapes To Tell Spatial Stories, Sandra Schmidt

The Councilor: A Journal of the Social Studies

This paper repurposes the concept of landscape as a useful way of thinking how we narrate abstract and concrete space. I explore an assignment in my class wherein student embody and narrate a concrete space. I analyze it through landscapes and consider how that discussed positionality, presentation, and layers. I conclude with exploring how the landscape can similarly be used to think critically about how we discuss faraway places in geography classes.

The Green Book: Race, Geography, And Critical Understanding, Mark Pearcy Ph.D. 2018 Rider University

The Green Book: Race, Geography, And Critical Understanding, Mark Pearcy Ph.D.

The Councilor: A Journal of the Social Studies

Social studies teachers face a number of disciplinary challenges--for instance, insufficient geographic knowledge, fewer opportunities for critical analysis amid shrinking instructional time--and, in terms of confronting discrimination and disparity, an increasingly racially segregated society. Teachers can, however, make excellent use of historical resources and modern mapping tools to empower students in their analysis of the Jim Crow era and segregation in American daily life. This article describes the use of The Negro Motorist Green Book, a guide produced from 1937 to 1963 for African-American drivers which detailed American businesses which catered to black travelers. Using the data from these books ...

Teaching The First American Civilization Recognizing The Moundbuilders As A Great Native-American Civilization, Jack Zevin 2018 Queens College/CUNY

Teaching The First American Civilization Recognizing The Moundbuilders As A Great Native-American Civilization, Jack Zevin

The Councilor: A Journal of the Social Studies

The Moundbuilders are a culture of mystery, little recognized by most Americans, yet they created farms, villages, towns, and cities covering as much as a third of the United States. Social studies teachers have yet to mine the resources left us over thousands of years by the native artisans and builders who preceded the nations European explorers came into contact with after 1492. Several of the Moundbuilder cities grew to sizeable proportions and one in particular, Cahokia, Illinois, not far from East St. Louis became a kind of center for the many peoples inhabiting the surrounding tributaries of the Mississippi ...
