Lessons Of The Alaska Dividend, Karl Widerquist 2009 Georgetown University-Qatar

Lessons Of The Alaska Dividend, Karl Widerquist

Karl Widerquist

At a time when progressive social policies are under attack across the industrialized world, the Alaska Dividend continues to be extremely popular. It distributes a yearly dividend to every man, woman, and child in Alaska without any conditions whatsoever. It has helped Alaska maintain one of the lowest poverty rates in the United States. It has helped Alaska become the most economically equal of all 50 states. And it has helped Alaska become the only U.S. state in which equality has risen rather than fallen over the last 20 years. Certainly Alaska is doing something right. As newsletter editor for …


I Have A Basic Income, Karl Widerquist 2009 Georgetown University-Qatar

I Have A Basic Income, Karl Widerquist

Karl Widerquist

In a period of about eight months, I managed to save and invest enough money to get myself a small personal basic income. It was easy—if you get the kind of lucky breaks I got. I’m telling you this story only because it illustrates how much our economic fortunes are determined by luck, how favorably our laws treat people who own stuff (people who have obtained control of natural resources) and how much unearned income is available for redistribution.


Review Of Bol: Neo-Confucianism In History, Stephen C. Angle 2009 Wesleyan University

Review Of Bol: Neo-Confucianism In History, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Peter Bol’s first book, This Culture of Ours (Stanford, 1992), changed the way we understand the crucial intellectual and social changes from the Tang to the Song. That book ended with Cheng Yi and the rise of Daoxue (or Neo-Confucianism). One purpose of his new book is to pick up the story where This Culture of Ours left off, now explaining the intellectual and social factors that led Neo-Confucianism to become a successful movement — a movement that ultimately played a major role in shaping late imperial Chinese history. This is already an ambitious goal, and one the Bol fulfills …


Gender And Geography, Ann M. Oberhauser 2009 West Virginia University

Gender And Geography, Ann M. Oberhauser

Ann Oberhauser

The geographical analysis of gender, or simply gender geography, has experienced significant growth since its origins in the 1970s. This field of study has developed from early research on spatial patterns of women's activities to more recent analyses of how spatial processes are linked to gender identities and feminist methodology. Gender and other social relations have been incorporated into nearly all areas of the discipline and brought feminist perspectives to issues such as urban planning, globalization, and, more recently, geographic information science (GIScience).


(Re)Scaling Gender And Globalization: Livelihood Strategies In Accra, Ghana, Ann M. Oberhauser 2009 West Virginia University

(Re)Scaling Gender And Globalization: Livelihood Strategies In Accra, Ghana, Ann M. Oberhauser

Ann Oberhauser

Feminist analyses of globalization provide important perspectives on the increasing integration of global political, economic, and social processes. This paper focuses on several themes in feminist scholarship that inform our
understanding of globalization as a dynamic and contested process in contemporary society. The discussion encompasses an analysis of scale that incorporates the intersection of diverse economic processes from the level of the body to the global arena. This paper also offers feminist insight on spaces of resistance that have
formed alongside neoliberal globalization. The empirical component of this analysis draws from research conducted in the West African nation of Ghana, …


Acquisition Of Spanish Gender Agreement In Two Learning Contexts: Study Abroad And At Home, Christina Isabelli 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

Acquisition Of Spanish Gender Agreement In Two Learning Contexts: Study Abroad And At Home, Christina Isabelli

Christina Isabelli

The goal of this study is to describe the acquisition rate for gender acquisition in Spanish and to show whether individual variability and language contact may affect this rate. The participants were intermediate second language Spanish (first language English) learners in the study abroad and at-home contexts over a 4-month period. The participants received grammaticality judgment tests coded for morphological class of the modified noun as well as attributive and predicative adjectives. Data were also collected on social behavior and language contact in Spanish and English in order to explain data outcome. The findings suggest that no difference exists between …


Mining And Civilization, An Illustrated History, Fathi Habashi 2009 Laval University, Quebec City, Canada

Mining And Civilization, An Illustrated History, Fathi Habashi

Fathi Habashi

Mining and Civilization has been conceived to compliment the author's two books History of Metallurgy and Readings in Historical Metallurgy and to fill a gap in the literature. It is difficult to study the history of metallurgy without studying the history of mining at the same time. Each time the author visits ancient ruins or examines an ancient stone statue he recalls the work of miners who brought the material from a quarry so that the sculptor can create a work of art. History of mining, quarrying, and stone carving is history of civilization.

Visual Testimony: Lee Miller’S Dachau, Sharon Sliwinski 2009 Selected Works

Visual Testimony: Lee Miller’S Dachau, Sharon Sliwinski

Sharon Sliwinski

This essay examines images of the liberation of Dachau concentration camp taken by American war correspondent and photographer Lee Miller. Miller’s work is mobilized as an optic through which to grasp the shock of confronting the Nazi camps. Her images are read as a form of visual testimony. That is, although they fail to provide a transparent view of what occurred in the Nazi lagers, they are nevertheless inscribed with all that the photographer did not know of the events to which she bore witness. The nature of this strange unintelligibility is what the author pursues: the visual inscription of …


The Childhood Of Human Rights: The Kodak On The Congo, Sharon Sliwinski 2009 Selected Works

The Childhood Of Human Rights: The Kodak On The Congo, Sharon Sliwinski

Sharon Sliwinski

This article examines the Congo reform movement’s use of atrocity photographs in their human rights campaign (c. 1904–13) against Belgian King Leopold, colonial ruler of the Congo Free State. This material analysis shows that human rights are conceived by spectators who, with the aid of the photographic apparatus, are compelled to judge that crimes against humanity are occurring to others. The article also tracks how this judgement has been haunted by the potent wish to undo the suffering witnessed. 


Strangers In Blood: Relocating Race In The Renaissance, Jean E. Feerick 2009 John Carroll University

Strangers In Blood: Relocating Race In The Renaissance, Jean E. Feerick

Jean Feerick

Strangers in Blood explores, in a range of early modern literature, the association between migration to foreign lands and the moral and physical degeneration of individuals. Arguing that, in early modern discourse, the concept of race was primarily linked with notions of bloodline, lineage, and genealogy rather than with skin colour and ethnicity, Jean E. Feerick establishes that the characterization of settler communities as subject to degenerative decline constituted a massive challenge to the fixed system of blood that had hitherto underpinned the English social hierarchy.

Considering contexts as diverse as Ireland, Virginia, and the West Indies, Strangers in Blood …

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, pablo rosser 2009 COLABORADOR HONORÍFICO UNIVERSIDAD ALICANTE

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
