Review Of: "The Romantic National Tale And The Question Of Ireland" By Ina Ferris, Julie M. Dugger 2017 Selected Works

Review Of: "The Romantic National Tale And The Question Of Ireland" By Ina Ferris, Julie M. Dugger

Julie Dugger

The Romantic National Tale and the Question of Ireland, by Ina Ferris, covers territory well beyond that suggested by its title. Ina Ferris traces developments not only in the Irish national tale, but also in other fictional forms—Irish Gothic and “novels of insurgency”—and in non-fiction including travel narratives, memoirs, and political speeches. All of these genres, she argues, played a key role in shaping national subjectivity in a post-Union, pre-Catholic Emancipation Ireland. Beginning with the Act of Union and concluding with the Emancipation agitation of the 1820s, Ferris uses an impressive synthesis of textual analysis, British Romantic and ...


"I’M A Feminist, But…”: Popular Romance In The Women’S Literature Classroom, Julie M. Dugger 2017 Western Washington University

"I’M A Feminist, But…”: Popular Romance In The Women’S Literature Classroom, Julie M. Dugger

Julie Dugger

The enduring popularity of the romance novel makes it an ideal genre to use in teaching feminist literary theory because it raises two compelling questions. What is the women’s studies critic to do when a genre dominated by women writers and readers appears to conflict with feminist ideals? And what are teachers to do when that conflict turns up in the classroom: when students feel a disjunction between their pre-existing reading practices and the critical theories that inform their studies? The opposition between feminist theory and women’s popular reading practices, in scholarship and in the classroom, is an ...

Applied Research In Managerial Communication: The Critical Link Between Knowledge And Practice, Judi Brownell 2017 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Applied Research In Managerial Communication: The Critical Link Between Knowledge And Practice, Judi Brownell

Judi Brownell

[Excerpt] Why are some of your colleagues more successful than others? Why do some managers seem to make all the right decisions while others flounder? You might at first assume the successful ones are lucky, or can attribute their success to intelligence, personality, or even the environment in which they grew up. What might not be readily apparent is that successful practitioners have acquired specific knowledge that contributes to their high performance. While requisite knowledge can be gained in a number of ways—experience, training, and education, for instance—powerful insights and reliable guidance for hospitality leaders come from applied ...

Is Google Search Behavior Related To Volatility? Incorporating Google Trends Data Into A Garch Model For Equity Volatility, Timothy de Silva 2017 Claremont McKenna College

Is Google Search Behavior Related To Volatility? Incorporating Google Trends Data Into A Garch Model For Equity Volatility, Timothy De Silva

Undergraduate Economic Review

Intuitively, one would expect that internet search volume would contain valuable information about investor sentiment for a company. With the development of new data sources, such as Google Trends, this relationship can be more easily and objectively examined. This paper seeks to examine the relationship between a company’s stock price volatility and its Google search volume. A small cross-section of twenty companies is considered, and the goal of this paper is to demonstrate the power of Google Trends data in hope of initiating further research. Using a conventional GARCH framework for financial market volatility, an economically and statistically significant ...
