Making Methods Relevant: Undergraduate Research Methods And The Content Analysis Project, Kevin E. Courtright, David A. Mackey 2020 Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

Making Methods Relevant: Undergraduate Research Methods And The Content Analysis Project, Kevin E. Courtright, David A. Mackey

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

Teachers of undergraduate research methods classes may struggle at times to keep their courses engaging and to have students view the material as relevant to the occupations they will soon enter. This article discusses a content analysis assignment and how it offers a way for students to demonstrate critical thinking and acquire data analysis skills. Through the use of multiple high-impact learning practices, the assignment requires students, individually or in a group, to identify data appropriate for content analysis and then, with faculty guidance, develop research questions, manage the data, conceptualize and operationalize themes, perform content analysis, draw conclusions from ...


Using Understanding By Design To Create A University Orientation Class Grounded In Information Literacy, Jennifer Joe, Wade Lee 2020 University of Toledo

Using Understanding By Design To Create A University Orientation Class Grounded In Information Literacy, Jennifer Joe, Wade Lee

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

This article describes the process of redesigning UC1130: Information Literacy for College Research, a class taught at the University of Toledo, in Toledo, Ohio. This redesign was conducted by Jennifer Joe and Wade Lee-Smith, librarians at the university, and facilitated by the University of Toledo’s University Teaching Center, Denise Bartell, the Associate Vice Provost for Student Success, and Thomas Atwood, the Associate Dean of University Libraries, who was the creator of the original curriculum for UC1130. The course redesign was motivated by two factors: incorporation of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education, and the class’s ...

Nunca Más: The Evolution Of Memory Narratives In Post-Dictatorship Argentina And Uruguay, Lara A. Simonetti 2020 Reed College

Nunca Más: The Evolution Of Memory Narratives In Post-Dictatorship Argentina And Uruguay, Lara A. Simonetti

The Macksey Journal

This work is a comparative analysis between the memory-making processes that followed the late 20th century dictatorships in Argentina and Uruguay. While Argentina did extensive work to memorialize and prosecute the violence that occurred, Uruguay maintained the impunity of their military regime and had lackluster efforts to condemn it in their national narrative. The existence of opportunities to politically profit from stories of oppression shaped how and whether these stories were told. This research is based on a close reading of the Nunca Más reports which detailed the experiences of those targeted by state terrorism as well as visits to ...


A Nazi Amusement Park: Flakturm Tower Iv And The Rise Of Alt-Right Fetishism In Vacation Venues, Amanda Jayne Cummins 2020 Davis & Elkins College

A Nazi Amusement Park: Flakturm Tower Iv And The Rise Of Alt-Right Fetishism In Vacation Venues, Amanda Jayne Cummins

The Macksey Journal

This paper contends that the NH Hotel Group’s decision to convert Flakturm Tower IV, a former Nazi military installation in Hamburg, Germany, into a luxury hotel performatively establishes an Alt-Right fetishism. Though NH Hotel Group plans to include a rooftop garden to serve as a “memorial center for victims of the Nazi regime,” this paper argues that even this gesture magnifies the terror. Drawing primarily from Julia Kristeva’s theory of abjection, Dick Hebdige’s theory of style, the project’s surface discourse proclaiming the benefits of restoration and repurposing, is really a gesture of repossession. This repossession emerges ...


Reconciliation And Resistance From The Ground Up: The Power Of Affect In Chicago’S Community Gardens, Olivia Lee 2020 The University of Illinois at Chicago

Reconciliation And Resistance From The Ground Up: The Power Of Affect In Chicago’S Community Gardens, Olivia Lee

The Macksey Journal

Chicago is the second city -- after Milwaukee in segregation. In the low-income, primarily black neighborhoods on the South Side of the city, community gardens are a spatial break with and grassroots activism against the grim landscape of economic, structural, and physical violence. But what is the gardens’ social valence when they seem unable to countervail the ongoing history of marginalization by race and socioeconomic status? Drawing on affect theory, I illustrate how the slow and uneventful healing of personal tragedies in Chicago’s community gardens is quiet, nascent resistance against neoliberal, post-racial injustices. In a society where the relationship between ...


Beds For Rent: Economic Motives Of County Jail Expansion 1970 - Present, Anna Duan 2020 University of Pennsylvania

Beds For Rent: Economic Motives Of County Jail Expansion 1970 - Present, Anna Duan

The Macksey Journal

For the last four decades, incarceration in the United States has risen in areas where few would expect: rural ex-mining and agricultural counties with low crime rates. In response, a body of literature has emerged revealing a nationwide trend in which declining counties invest in correctional facilities as a last-ditch economic revitalization strategy. However, researchers have focused on state and federal prison construction projects while neglecting the impact of county jails on growing rural incarceration rates. Since the 1970s, hundreds of counties have expanded their jails to house federal inmates. As jails are the first stage of incarceration, policies concerning ...


Israel's Modulation Of Checkpoints: Systematic Manipulation Of The Oslo Accords, Anna Rhodes 2020 Knox College

Israel's Modulation Of Checkpoints: Systematic Manipulation Of The Oslo Accords, Anna Rhodes

The Macksey Journal

The theory of modulation, as introduced by Gilles Deleuze in 1990, serves as an instructive tool to think about the difficulties faced in Israel-Palestine. This paper seeks to discuss some of the major instances of Israeli legal modulation throughout the course of the Occupation with a heavy focus on these occurrences post-Oslo Accords. Israel modulates its policies concerning checkpoints and crossing between Palestinian-to Israeli-controlled territory based on its understanding of the Oslo Accords and Interim Agreement. The policies of this Agreement were implemented poorly on the ground and consequently did not create a successful roadmap to peace as it was ...


Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences In Racial And Ethnic Groups: Findings From A Diverse University Sample, Jasmine Kim Collard, Melissa Ponce-Rodas 2020 Andrews University

Exploring Adverse Childhood Experiences In Racial And Ethnic Groups: Findings From A Diverse University Sample, Jasmine Kim Collard, Melissa Ponce-Rodas

The Macksey Journal

Studies to examine how adverse childhood events impact adult health have been pioneered by Vincent Felitti (1998) and replicated time and time again. However, the extant literature has given little attention to the role of culture in experiencing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's) and understanding their impact. In the few studies examining racial differences, White children have been found to have a lower ACE score compared to non-White children (Maguire-Jack, Lanier, & Lombardi, 2019), and Black and Hispanic children have been exposed to two or more adversities than their White counterparts (Slopen, et. al., 2016). Mersky and Janczewski (2018) also found ...


“God, Sometimes You Don’T Come Through:” The Presentation Of Religious Trauma Syndrome Through Rock Music, Maggie Elizabeth Parker 2020 Agnes Scott College

“God, Sometimes You Don’T Come Through:” The Presentation Of Religious Trauma Syndrome Through Rock Music, Maggie Elizabeth Parker

The Macksey Journal

Religious Trauma Syndrome (RTS) was a term coined by Marlene Winell in 2011. Winell is a popular educator and writer who has done psychological research on human development, and decided to research religious trauma after her own expereiences. She became a licensed psychologist and began to explore the changes that adolescents go through as they age. Most of her work revolves around personal growth and healing, as she teaches about “thriving and not surviving.” In this paper, I will focus on the negative effects that religion can have on different individuals and the ways in which these individuals must use ...


Examining Community Resilience In The Disaster-Prone City Of Conway, Sc, Lamesha L. Craft 2020 National Intelligence University

Examining Community Resilience In The Disaster-Prone City Of Conway, Sc, Lamesha L. Craft

Journal of Social Change

Social science research on disaster-prone communities often cites social capital and community resilience to examine methods for improving emergency management and disaster risk reduction. The City of Conway, South Carolina, is susceptible to numerous natural disasters throughout the year and it has sustained damage from four major flooding disasters since 2015. This qualitative, ethnographic case study used interview data collected from nine Conway residents to examine and analyze perceived threats to citizens of Conway following a large-scale natural disaster and the possible responses by citizens in need of government assistance. Findings reveal that participants have endured more than one large-scale ...

Removing Racially Biased Algorithms In Policing, Andie Lee 2020 Purdue University

Removing Racially Biased Algorithms In Policing, Andie Lee

Student Papers in Public Policy

Local police departments use algorithm-based programs to do police work and predict crime. Technology has created the police tactic of predictive crime prevention. Police work, however, requires social skills, assessment of the environment, and most importantly human interaction. Automated policing lacks these characteristics. Moreover, the algorithms used to make crime predictions and risk assessments have disproportionately affected minorities.


The Case For Online Ranked-Choice Voting, Rayyan Khan 2020 Purdue University

The Case For Online Ranked-Choice Voting, Rayyan Khan

Student Papers in Public Policy

Maine was the first to embrace ranked-choice voting on a statewide level in 2018, using it for all state and general elections. Maine voters will be the first to use ranked-choice voting in a presidential election in 2020. This system differs from traditional voting in that voters rank candidates rather than choose just one. Supporters of ranked-choice voting tout it as a better model for accurately representing the values of the voting population; however, a study conducted in San Francisco details a potential shortfall referred to as “ballot fatigue” that the theoretically-ideal system may face as it struggles to deal ...


Exploring Community Supports For South Asian Women Experiencing Domestic Violence: Narratives From Survivors, Cody Thompson, Ankita Deka, PhD 2020 Augsburg University

Exploring Community Supports For South Asian Women Experiencing Domestic Violence: Narratives From Survivors, Cody Thompson, Ankita Deka, Phd

The Macksey Journal

The prevalence of domestic violence (DV) is higher among South Asian population living in the US as compared to the general population. For example, in the US, the lifetime prevalence of DV is around 20% (Devries et al., 2013), however, within the South Asian population domestic violence, accounting for physical and sexual abuse, is a staggering 40% (Mahapatra, 2012; Raj & Silverman, 2002). This research study explores the lived experiences, supports, barriers, and access to services among South Asian survivors of domestic violence. Using an in-depth interviewing method with eight women, this study explores the cultural, social, financial, immigration related barriers ...


Ok, Boomer: The Impact Of Age Based Language Ideologies, Carly Vaitkevicius 2020 Grand Valley State University

Ok, Boomer: The Impact Of Age Based Language Ideologies, Carly Vaitkevicius

The Macksey Journal

In 2019, memes containing the phrase Ok, Boomer flooded social media as conflict between generations became more prevalent. Terms with similar connotations, like snowflake, already maintained a stronghold in mainstream discourse, creating a niche for additional age-related terms. Examining memes, tweets, and podcasts, I work to examine the impact terms like Ok, boomer have on online discussions. While it can be argued this type of communication reflects ritualized insults similar to that found in Labov’s writings or Delfino’s examination of joning , such comments show an ideology deeper than hierarchal establishment. When compared to samples found in social media ...


The Stain Of Slavery On The Black Women's Body And The Development Gynecology: Historical Trauma Of A Black Women's Body, Maia A. Hill 2020 The Pennsylvania State University

The Stain Of Slavery On The Black Women's Body And The Development Gynecology: Historical Trauma Of A Black Women's Body, Maia A. Hill

The Macksey Journal

It was 1419 when the transatlantic slave trade would begin the stripping of black womanhood, by 1650 becoming the slave masters sex object on the plantation, and in 1840 to the surgical table where they were experimental subjects of medical doctors for the development of women reproduction health also known as Gynecology. Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsy were the first women experimented on under the racist ideology that was produced by scientist stating that black bodies are “super bodies” when it comes to pain. Transgenerational trauma has left the black “painless” bodies of women isolated from proper medical treatment in women ...
