Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

" america.jp" explores identity, nationalism, and power on the Internet between 1969 and 2000 through a cultural analysis of Internet code and the creative processes behind it.

A Publisher's Hand: Strategic Gambles And Cultural Leadership By Moses Dresser Phillips In Antebellum America, Marykate Mcmaster Jan 2001

A Publisher's Hand: Strategic Gambles And Cultural Leadership By Moses Dresser Phillips In Antebellum America, Marykate Mcmaster

Two Steps From The Blues: Creating Discourse And Constructing Canons In Blues Criticism, John M. Dougan

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation examines the development of blues criticism in its myriad forms from the 1920s to 1990s, its role in the emergence of a blues discourse and history, and the codification of a blues canon.
