Language, Power And Politics (Fall 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges 2009 Carnegie Mellon University

Language, Power And Politics (Fall 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

In this course, we will examine the integral role language plays in politics; and, more generally, how power operates in linguistic practices and political interaction. As we critically examine how language is used to articulate, maintain and subvert relations of power in society, emphasis will be placed on language in the media, the political rhetoric associated with war, and the construction of ‘truth’ in politics. We will also consider the role of ethnographic analysis in aiding our understandings of how social actors use and (re)interpret political language. The course will provide you with a foundation for understanding how language ...


Reproducing Dominion: Emotional Apprenticeship In The 4h Youth Livestock Program., Colter Ellis, Leslie Irvine 2009 University of Colorado Boulder

Reproducing Dominion: Emotional Apprenticeship In The 4h Youth Livestock Program., Colter Ellis, Leslie Irvine

Leslie Irvine, Ph.D.

This paper examines young people’s socialization into the doctrine known as “dominionism,” which justifies the use of animals in the service of human beings. Using qualitative research, it focuses on the 4-H youth livestock program, in which boys and girls raise cattle, pigs, goats, and sheep for slaughter. The analysis portrays 4-H as an apprenticeship in which children learn to do cognitive emotion work, use distancing mechanisms, and create a “redemption” narrative to cope with contradictory ethical and emotional experiences. Although this paper focuses on young people’s relationships with animals, and particularly with types of animals that have ...

Introduction, Dari E. Sylvester, Gary Daynes 2009 University of the Pacific

Introduction, Dari E. Sylvester, Gary Daynes

Dari E. Sylvester

For as long as Americans have thought about higher education they have hoped that it would lead to civic engagement. The Massachusetts Bay Colony supported Harvard University because it trained ministers--the cornerstone of most Puritan communities. Benjamin Rush, physician and signer of the Declaration of Independence, proposed the creation of a Federal University in 1786 to train public servants for the new nation. And every variety of college and university--from private universities to community colleges--proclaims a civic mission.

Racial Microaggressions At The University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign: Voices Of Students Of Color Living In University Housing, Stacy A. Harwood, Margaret Brown Huntt, Ruby Mendenhall 2009 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Racial Microaggressions At The University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign: Voices Of Students Of Color Living In University Housing, Stacy A. Harwood, Margaret Brown Huntt, Ruby Mendenhall

Stacy A Harwood

For the purposes of this report, we will focus on the racial microaggressions that students reported experiencing within the University Housing context. In general, racial microaggressions are race-related encounters that happen between individuals. Individual level encounters can be verbal, nonverbal, or behavioral exchanges between people. Microaggressions can also occur on the environmental level, which are race-related messages that individuals receive from their environment. First, we will discuss four types of racial microaggressions that students reported experiencing in University Housing, and then we will highlight three types of environmental microaggressions.


Resource Allocation And Organizational Form, Michael Raith, Guido Friebel 2009 University of Rochester

Resource Allocation And Organizational Form, Michael Raith, Guido Friebel

Michael Raith

We develop a theory of firm scope and structure in which merging two firms allows the integrated firm's top management to allocate resources that are costly to trade. However, information about their use resides with division managers. We show that establishing truthful upward communication raises the cost of inducing managerial effort compared with stand-alone firms; this effect dominates a positive effect on effort driven by competition for the firm's resources. We derive predictions about optimal firm scope and structure. In particular, we show why it is optimal to separate the tasks of allocating resources and running a division.


Labour Trafficking: Prosecutions And Other Proceedings, Fiona M. David Ms 2009 Centre for International and Public Law, Australian National University

Labour Trafficking: Prosecutions And Other Proceedings, Fiona M. David Ms

Fiona David

In Australia, three defendants in two cases have been charged and prosecuted for ‘slavery’ or ’trafficking in persons’ under the Criminal Code (Cth), in circumstances where the crimes have allegedly occurred in contexts other than the sex industry. These cases tend to be described as instances of ‘labour trafficking’, even though the parameters of this phrase are far from settled (see further AIC 2009). This brief describes the progression of these two cases through the Australian court system, with varying outcomes.


Environmentally-Conscious Supply Chain Design In Support Of Food Security, Caroline C. Krejci, Benita M. Beamon 2009 University of Washington

Environmentally-Conscious Supply Chain Design In Support Of Food Security, Caroline C. Krejci, Benita M. Beamon

Caroline C. Krejci

This paper seeks to design food supply chain structures that can provide food security for every person in the world while supporting long-term environmental sustainability. In particular, we provide alternatives to the current food supply chain structure and analyze their potential for providing food security, in terms of productive capacity and long-term environmental sustainability. Given the current world population and expected continued growth, our analysis suggests that environmentally-sustainable food supply chains would be most effectively supported by local and organic agriculture, while maintaining a parallel industrial agricultural system. This hybrid system would adopt environmentally-sustainable principles whenever possible, seeking to increase ...

Engaging With Citizens Online: Understanding The Role Of Epetitioning In Local Government Democracy, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos 2009 The University of Jordan

Engaging With Citizens Online: Understanding The Role Of Epetitioning In Local Government Democracy, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

According to the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act introduced in 2009, UK local authorities are expected to implement ―a facility for making petitions in electronic form to the authority‖. Motivated by this arrangement, this paper reflects on the findings of a case study investigation conducted with the Royal Borough of Kingston (one of the first local authorities to implement such a service since 2004). Lessons learnt from the case suggest that ePetitions reveal increased potential to enhance local government democracy, but are also shaped by challenging open implementation issues which can highly influence the initiative’s impact. Our ...


Desegregation Policy And Disparities In Faculty Salary And Workload: Maryland’S Historically Black And Predominately White Institutions, Robert T. Palmer, PhD, Kimberly A. Griffin, PhD 2009 University of Maryland - College Park

Desegregation Policy And Disparities In Faculty Salary And Workload: Maryland’S Historically Black And Predominately White Institutions, Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Kimberly A. Griffin, Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Although ambiguity exists regarding how states must respond to the mandates of Fordice to dismantle dual systems of education in previously segregated states, several scholars note Fordice should manifest itself in the enhancement of public Black colleges. Responding to Fordice, the state of Maryland entered into an agreement with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) to make its Black colleges comparable with their White counterparts. While Maryland claims that it has satisfied its agreement with OCR, findings of this study challenge this assertion. Data from AAUP, University System of Maryland [USM], and he Morgan State Office of Institutional research show ...


Making The Connection: Latino Immigrants And Their Cross-Border Ties, Roger D. Waldinger, Thomas Soehl 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

Making The Connection: Latino Immigrants And Their Cross-Border Ties, Roger D. Waldinger, Thomas Soehl

Roger D Waldinger

This paper uses the Pew Hispanic Center’s 2006 National Survey of Latinos to study the everyday, routine cross-border activities of travel, remittance sending, and telephone communication among Latin American immigrants in the United States. We ask how migrants vary in the intensity of their cross-border connections, distinguishing among the transmigrants, those captured by the host country national social field, and those who maintain some ongoing home-country tie. We then examine the characteristics associated both with variations in the intensity of connectedess and with each specific type of connection. We show that most migrants maintain some degree of home country ...
