Robber Barons And Humbuggers: The Rise Of Philanthropic Museums In Nineteenth-Century New York, Meaghan O'Connor 2014 Seton Hall University

Robber Barons And Humbuggers: The Rise Of Philanthropic Museums In Nineteenth-Century New York, Meaghan O'Connor

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

New York City's most recognizable museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History came to prominence in the second half of the nineteenth century thanks to the support of wealthy benefactors. At the same time, social reformers, mostly Protestant and middle or upper-class, were combating the vice and poverty that they saw in the diversifying city with a moralizing rhetoric of character building. This paper will show that these two movements, the rise of Philanthropic Museums and the Social Reform movement were connected and that the large temple-like museums that thrive to this ...


Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan 2014 Northeastern University

Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan

Criminology and Justice Policy Dissertations

I examine the possibility of designing a comprehensive anti-corruption counterstrategy for the private sector. The first prong of my study determines the relationships between the environment, management, and business controls in their effect on combating corruption. Quantitative analysis of data from the World Bank's Enterprise Surveys was performed in order to frame a proper context in which measures against corruption can be considered. These relationships were then considered in the subcontext of region, industry, and company size to determine variation. Results show that business controls are generally resilient to the effects of management. Management effects are resilient to environmental ...

Democratizing The Food System- The Food Policy Council Movement, Garrett Spear 2014 University of Kentucky

Democratizing The Food System- The Food Policy Council Movement, Garrett Spear

Kaleidoscope

The increasing complexity of our modern food system has changed the landscape of American agriculture and diet, and has increasingly consolidated decision-making abilities in a concentrated group of organizations. Local food movements are re-appropriating their food supply chains through a variety of methods, including the democratic-minded food policy council organization. Food policy councils organize community stakeholders into a network of organizations which can collectively grapple with food issues affecting and on behalf of the local community. This study consisted of research on the history and methods of the food policy council movement, directed ultimately at the council-less context in Lexington ...

Surveillance In Chicago: Growing, But For What Purpose?, Rajiv Shah

Rajiv Shah

Chicago is now one of the leading cities in the world in using surveillance technology. This growth began in 2003 when cameras were used to fight street level crime. Since then, Chicago’s camera network has grown to over 25,000 units, along with the use of a variety of new technologies. This chapter explains this growth and how it affects policing.


The D Word: A Reexamination Of Diversity At Colby Opens The Door To New Possibilities, Stephen Collins 2014 Colby College

The D Word: A Reexamination Of Diversity At Colby Opens The Door To New Possibilities, Stephen Collins

Colby Magazine

When Tennessee Watson '03 arrived at Colby two years ago from a suburb of Rochester, N.Y., she confidently threw herself into tough academic courses and settled on a double major in Latin American studies and government. In her first semester she played soccer on weekends with international students and made up for relative inexperience on the field with tenacity. In the winter she won competitions at Sugarloaf in the boardercross- a sort of snowboard-race-meets-roller-derby event. Almost instantly, Colby was her oyster. "I saw it as a pretty homogenous environment and realized it was comfortable for me," she recalled this ...

Impossible Image: Eating Disorders Can Develop When Societal Pressures Overwhelm Students, Alicia Nemiccolo Macleay

Colby Magazine

When Stephanie Looney '02 says she battled anorexia for six years, she means it. Every second, every day, was consumed by her obsession. Even sleep didn't bring a reprieve. "I used to dream about food," Looney said. "I'd have terrifying nightmares that I ate a bowl of cereal."

Looney, a bright, articulate woman who is now leaning towards a forensic science career, developed anorexia when she was 14 and became overwhelmed with pressures. She was participating in sports year-round, found she had to start working to earn those once-assumed A's and was experiencing a home life she ...


Creating Health From Below? Exposing And Resisting The Power Of Media Culture Over Public Health, Woods Nash 2014 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Creating Health From Below? Exposing And Resisting The Power Of Media Culture Over Public Health, Woods Nash

Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum

A few days ago, my three-year-old daughter happened to glimpse a picture of a glowing young woman in blue gown and long white gloves. It was Cinderella, all dressed up for the ball. And though my daughter didn’t know the woman’s name—has never read the story or seen the Disney movie—she pointed and pleaded, “Can I dress up like her?” What silliness, I thought, as we left home for the playground. But not before I grabbed my mesh back hat, making sure its bill was still bent just as retired tennis star Andy Roddick would don ...

The Unfulfilled Promise Of Online Deliberation, Janette Hartz-Karp, Brian Sullivan 2014 Public Deliberation

The Unfulfilled Promise Of Online Deliberation, Janette Hartz-Karp, Brian Sullivan

Journal of Public Deliberation

Since online deliberation has not delivered on the expectations of more considered, democratic participation, the authors propose less focus on technological ‘fixes’ and more on re-conceptualizing its primary purpose to gathering resonance in an authentic public square. The ideas that emerge can then be deliberated in representative face-to-face public deliberations, with the coherent voice that results contributing to more inclusive, legitimate, and implementable democratic decision-making.


The Critical Role Of Local Centers And Institutes In Advancing Deliberative Democracy, Martin Carcasson Ph.D. 2014 Public Deliberation

The Critical Role Of Local Centers And Institutes In Advancing Deliberative Democracy, Martin Carcasson Ph.D.

Journal of Public Deliberation

Utilizing the development and early history of the Colorado State University Center for Public Deliberation as an example, this paper makes the case for expanding the number of and the level of support for such campus-based centers as critical resources for expanding deliberative democracy. Due to their ability to not only provide deliberative capacity to the community, but also to attract students to our field and equip with them with essential skills, to strengthen the connection of colleges and universities to their local communities, and to contribute to the further development of deliberative theory and practice, these local “hubs of ...
