The Texture Of Contact: European And Indian Settler Communities On The Iroquoian Borderlands, 1720-1780, David L. Preston Jan 2002

The Texture Of Contact: European And Indian Settler Communities On The Iroquoian Borderlands, 1720-1780, David L. Preston

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation is a comparative study of cultural relationships between European and Indian settler communities along the Six Nations' borders with New York and Pennsylvania from 1720 to 1780. It particularly examines "everyday encounters" between ordinary peoples---a dimension of colonial social and economic life that has usually escaped historians' attention. Palatine, Scots, Irish, Dutch, and English colonists not only lived close to Indian villages but also frequently interacted with Iroquois, Delawares, and other natives. Frontier farms, forts, churches, and taverns were scenes of frequent face-to-face meetings between colonists and Indians. My dissertation explores the dynamics of settler-Indian encounters and how ...


American Attitudes Toward British Imperialism, 1815--1860, Elizabeth Kelly Gray Jan 2002

American Attitudes Toward British Imperialism, 1815--1860, Elizabeth Kelly Gray

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation explores American attitudes toward British imperialism between 1815 and 1860 to determine what Americans thought of imperialism before the United States became an imperial power. It addresses the debate of whether the United States's acquisition of an empire in the 1890s was intentional or was, as many historians have characterized it, an accidental acquisition by a people long opposed to empire. This study also explores the benefits of incorporating American culture and society into the study of American imperialism.;This era connects the time when Americans re-established their independence from Great Britain---with the War of 1812---to the ...


Evaluating Music Teachers In Virginia: Practices And Perceptions, Charles Maranzano Jan 2002

Evaluating Music Teachers In Virginia: Practices And Perceptions, Charles Maranzano

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The purpose of this study was to investigate current evaluation practices in Virginia and to assess the impact of public school evaluation upon teachers of music. Traditional methods for the evaluation of teachers appear to have limited applicability for the majority of elementary and secondary school educators engaged in the field of performing arts, due primarily to the specialized nature of their respective teaching disciplines. Educational administrators charged with the responsibility for evaluating personnel confront an additional challenge when compelled to apply general models that are not suited to the highly complex world of performing arts instruction. Music teachers and ...

The Measure Of Independence: From The American Revolution To The Market Revolution In The Mid -Atlantic, Richard Smith Chew

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study explores the social and economic changes in the mid-Atlantic region generally, and Baltimore City and its hinterlands specifically, between the late colonial period and the dawn of the Jacksonian era. Baltimore foundered as a colonial entrepot until wheat emerged as an important export commodity in the 1740s. Between the mid-1740s and the 1770s, the town grew steadily within the British mercantilist world. its trade was deeply dependent on Atlantic commerce, its social structure reflected the mercantile orientation of the town and the staunchly deferential colonial household economy. The Revolution threatened to overturn this world with the promise of ...
