Shibui : Japan Chic And Post World War Ii American Modernism, Meghan McLaughlin Warner 2010 University of Iowa

Shibui : Japan Chic And Post World War Ii American Modernism, Meghan Mclaughlin Warner

Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation examines the United States' interactions with Japan between 1945 and 1965 to demonstrate how global processes have transformed American culture at home, as well as exporting it abroad. Through U.S. political, military and economic involvement - including postwar occupation, subsequent maintenance of military bases, and the opening of markets to Japanese exports - Americans gained unprecedented exposure to Japan and its culture. At the same time, Cold War pressure to engage other "free world" nations provided impetus to try and understand foreign cultures, like Japan's. While Americans across the economic spectrum took an interest in their new ally ...

History Steps Off The Page: The Past In The Future, A Case Study Of How The Mormon Battalion Is Making History Interactive, Allyson Jones

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This thesis addresses the presentation of the Mormon Battalion's history in three interactive forms. The Battalion served in the U.S.-Mexican War between 1846 and 1847. In 2008 a group known as Battalion Trek chose to rehike the original trail as closely as possible. The three chapters of this thesis address the reenactors who planned and completed the rehike, the blog they kept as they did so, and a program which allows those interested to learn more about the trail. Analyzing what such presentations have to offer is important as history moves into the hands of the public ...


Frederick Douglass: An American Adult Educator, Jerry Paul Ross 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

Frederick Douglass: An American Adult Educator, Jerry Paul Ross

Dissertations

Throughout his I ife, Frederick Douglass struggled to be something extraordinary. He rose from a life in slavery to become the most prominent African-American of his day and a leading figure in the abolitionist movement. Lost in the discussion of his life are the adult education roles that he played throughout his life and career. Beginning while he was still a slave and extending until his death, he worked to educate adults in order to transfonn individual lives and society as a whole. Douglass was primarily engaged in adult education in the fields of religious adult education, social movements, popular ...


Die Deutsche Besetzung Serbiens: Entwicklung Und Umsetzung Von Hitlers Politik Der Gewalt, Elizabeth Wheless 2010 College of William and Mary

Die Deutsche Besetzung Serbiens: Entwicklung Und Umsetzung Von Hitlers Politik Der Gewalt, Elizabeth Wheless

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Die Besetzung Serbiens im zweiten Weltkrieg wurde in den letzten sechzig Jahren als eine unwichtige Geschichte des Krieges aufgefasst. Im Gegenteil ist diese Geschichte in der modernen Welt ganz wichtig, weil sie früher falsch verstanden wurde, indem Hitler die Hauptfigur in der Besetzung war. In den Mehrheit der Geschichten des zweiten Weltkrieges ist die Rolle Hitlers gar nicht so gross wie sie in Serbien ist. Seine Einfluss in der Politik der Vergeltungen und der Gewalt gegen die Aufständischen und die Bevölkerung in Serbien wird hier untersucht, denn es hat viele Folgen sowohl für unseren Verständnis des zweiten Weltkrieges als auch ...


Defining Socialism Through The Familiar: East German Representation Of Hungary In The 1950s And 1960s, Kathryn Campbell Julian 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Defining Socialism Through The Familiar: East German Representation Of Hungary In The 1950s And 1960s, Kathryn Campbell Julian

Masters Theses

This study analyzes East German representations of Hungary in cultural texts to investigate the emergence of a German socialist identity in the 1950s and 1960s. I further contend that post-1945 self- and collective identity in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was complex and formulated by official, intellectual, and mass perceptions. By examining East German iconography of Hungary it becomes clear that socialist identity in the early years of the dictatorship relied on traditional expressions of society as well as ideology. Hungary provided East Germans with a practical model for socialist friendship. Though the GDR was a state that ostensibly celebrated ...


The Origins Of Mathematical Societies And Journals, Eric S. Savage 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Origins Of Mathematical Societies And Journals, Eric S. Savage

Masters Theses

We investigate the origins of mathematical societies and journals. We argue that the origins of today’s professional societies and journals have their roots in the informal gatherings of mathematicians in 17th century Italy, France, and England. The small gatherings in these nations began as academies and after gaining government recognition and support, they became the ancestors of the professional societies that exist today. We provide a brief background on the influences of the Renaissance and Reformation before discussing the formation of mathematical academies in each country.

Albania: A Nation Of Ethnic And Social Conflict, Olivia Blessing 2010 Sias International University, China

Albania: A Nation Of Ethnic And Social Conflict, Olivia Blessing

Olivia L Blessing

Albania played a significant role in modern global events including the war on terror, the war in Kosovo, as well as with its influence as the only predominantly Muslim nation in Europe other than Kosovo. Problems in the nation’s history and modern struggles over ethnicity have derailed Albania’s move toward democracy at times, but, so far, Albania has shown itself willing to work around these problems in an effort to move forwards its application to join the EU as one of the newest democratic states.


Empoderamiento - La Cultura, Reclamando Derechos E Identidad Y Expresión Poética En El Valle Del Chota, Hannah Roth 2010 Hamilton College

Empoderamiento - La Cultura, Reclamando Derechos E Identidad Y Expresión Poética En El Valle Del Chota, Hannah Roth

Hannah Roth

Mi proyecto es una encrucijada de muchos temas: Apelar a la identidad y la historia Afroecuatoriano a través de la educación. El reconocimiento de la historia, la cultura, la identidad, y los derechos afroecuatorianos es una manera de empoderarse y esto es lo que yo observé en la familia Chalá Lara y en las comunidades en el Valle del Chota.

Yo hice una investigación sobre la identidad afroecuatoriana, el impacto de Etnoeducación, y poesía como una herramienta de empoderamiento. En las clases de Etnoeducación aprendí mucho sobre el origen y la importancia de valorar la historia afroecuatoriana. Sin embargo, vi ...

Ética E Política. Uma Breve Reflexão, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

A política não é uma ética armada, nem sequer uma ética prática ou aplicada. A política não é « serva » da ética, mas não pode recusar pelo menos alguma eticidade. Pelo menos uma eticidade mínima. Hoje é comum falar de ética e falta de ética na política. Que relações tal pode ter com a cidadania e a democracia, não apenas ao nível macro-institucional, mas também ao nível micro-estrural, de proximidade?

As brand Labor, otherwise known as Rudd Labor, begins to look more and more like an extension of the Howard administration, things get stranger and stranger. In one week we had the appointment of Peter Costello to the board overseeing the Future Fund. This so enraged Paul Keating he almost sounded like a class warrior. We had Martin Ferguson telling Sharon Burrow that the ACTU only represented a sectional interest whereas the Government had to act for everyone. We had an unholy squabble between the soft left and the hard left about the future of Martin’s brother Laurie Ferguson ...

I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill: Woodstock, 1969/Berlin, 1989, Anthony Ashbolt

Anthony Ashbolt

The fortieth anniversary celebrations of the Woodstock music festival have gone dangerously close to transforming it into another commodified spectacle. Yet the spirit of the original Woodstock lives on to remind us of another way of thinking about the world. The Woodstock Music and Art Fair in August 1969 featured a galaxy of performers who had contributed significantly to the alternative zeitgeist that spoke of peace and love in ways that may sound corny now. The peace and love of the Sixties was grounded in a strong antiwar sensibility and a sense of collective solidarity against the American war in ...

Sneak Peek: The Urbanatomy Shanghai World Expo Guide 2010

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

When the Shanghai World Expo officially opens on Saturday, visitors will have to negotiate the largest fairground ever constructed, spanning 1305 acres on both sides of the Huangpu River.

Hitting shelves at Carrefour and City Shop stores in Shanghai this week, the Urbanatomy Shanghai World Expo Guide 2010 includes maps of the Expo site, in addition to discussions of World’s Fair history and background on Shanghai. Below, two excerpts from the guide’s introduction, written by Nick Land ...

Reflections On The Qinghai Earthquake, Nicole Barnes 2010 University of California, Irvine

Reflections On The Qinghai Earthquake, Nicole Barnes

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

As the Qinghai earthquake turns into yesterday’s news overseas and begins to sink into the sea of usual economic stories here in China, I would like to reflect upon the position of 10-year-old volunteer Tsering Dan Zhou in earthquake media.

News coverage of the earthquake here in China is impressive in many ways. The programs convey the information that everyone desires, but are also clearly designed to incite sympathy and get people to dig into their wallets for donations to the Chinese Red Cross and other relief agencies. They also pointedly emphasize “social harmony” (shehui hexie 社会和谐, Hu Jintao ...
