  • "A New Fear Known to Me": Emmett Till's Influence and the Black Panther Party

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Such programs answered Stokely Carmichael's and Charles Hamilton's call to develop a social movement that would respond to the "conditions of poverty and discrimination in the black community, that is a function of institutional racism" in addition to reacting to acts of "individual racism" such as the Birmingham bombings and Till's murder.53 "Getting up early to serve neighborhood kids and spending some time with them before they were bundled up for school gave many Panthers a real example of what we were working for - our people's future," recalled Abu-Jamal.54 In contrast to the experience of their own youth, the Party's leadership crafted an optimistic support network for children and young adults who would continue the movement for reform into future generations.

    Consider his description of the typical folk storytelling session: "One pre-eminent talker present, several others acting as authence and stimulators and sometimes contributors." [...] the creative process for the folk mirrors that of the mass mediated authence with their influence, albeit less direct, on the storytelling process they contribute to and help to shape in a complex but familiar manner.

    Document Overview:
    Evans identifies two design goals that the founding members established with their architects going into the ptoject: to create a presence of health and healing and to produce a space that would encourage staff support, "We chose colors that were along the theme of natural growth, with a lot of greens and tans and things related to the earth and growing," Evans says of their efforts to bring health and healing into the physical design of the facility. According to Evans, the spa bathroom is more of a community area, with two sitting areas (figure 3), a massage room, a fireplace, and flat-screen TVs.

    [...] though, Hamilton does call on a different aspect of German philosophy to support another Coler idgean view-namely, that the aesthetic cannot be a final value. [...] one might say of Christabel that it not only denies the freedom of the will, but that it also illustrates the mechanism by which pantheism (taken here as a variety of materialism) subverts free will:

  • "A reappraisal of social security financing"-revisited

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Given the importance of Social Security, solving its financing problems in a politically acceptable fashion remains a high national priority. For almost 70 years, Social Security has raised the living standards of millions of older Americans and markedly increased their sense of economic security. This article follows up on the issues raised by Richard Musgrave. The first section contrasts the fiscal situation today with the situation more than 25 years ago. The second section discusses the nature of the intergenerational compact. The third section explores the program's financing and suggests a rationale for shifting about 25% of the program's long-run costs to general revenues. More specifically, it develops the argument that the legacy costs resulting from the payment of benefits in excess of contributions to early cohorts should be covered by a levy on the income of taxpayers generally, not solely on the wages of current workers as is presently the case.

  • "A Rough, Saucy Set of Hands to Manage": Slave Resistance in Arkansas

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Where many scholars writing early in the twentieth century, led by U. B. Phillips, saw a benign and civilizing institution, Stampp emphasized the hardships experienced by those in bondage and characterized the institution as exploitative and lucrative.4 Stanley Elkins' Slavery: A Problem in American Institutional and Intellectual Life also emphasized brutality, famously comparing the psychological effects of American slavery to those produced by Nazi concentration camps.5 This emphasis on the brutality of slavery, as essential as it was, tended to focus on what was done to slaves rather than what they did for themselves. Some slaves valued for their skills as craftsmen or ability to bear many healthy children may have felt bolder in acting against the limits placed on them by whites, or may not have experienced as tight control in the first place. Because enslaved people brought varying levels of power to their resistance, they enjoyed differing degrees of success.

  • "A School in the Interior" African Studies: Engagement and Interdisciplinary

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    This article explores the intellectual traditions of African studies, focusing on the central principles of interdisciplinarity and commitment to social and racial justice. Tracing the origins of the field to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Africanist intellectuals such as Edward Blyden, it investigates these traditions historically and in the context of contemporary practice. Against the backdrop of concerns for the future of area studies, the author finds a vibrant field-both inside and beyond its traditional boundaries. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]

  • "A Shplit Ticket, Half Irish, Half Chinay": Representations of Mixed-Race and Hybridity In Turn-of-the-Century Theater

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    By the mid-nineteenth century, the racial order in the United States, whether the North or the South, placed whites above blacks and mulattoes, and conferred upon the latter a middling, confused, and doomed situation.3 American literature regarding racial mixture reflected social and scientific thought regarding the topic, and the most prevalent mixed-race character was the Tragic Mulatto, who, according to Freda Giles, served as a readily identifiable symbol of racial conflict, alienation, and insurmountable struggle against an untenable position in American society. . . (Giles 63-64) The Tragic Mulatto's catastrophic flaw is not character, ambition, or naivete, but blood, an expression of nineteenth century ideas about racial hierarchy, the essentialist inheritance of inferiority, and the threat to society that results from miscegenation.\n Their plays were what Michael Orni and Howard Winant would call "racial projects," or historically-situated efforts to regulate, re-create, and produce race.

  • "A Taste of College": Children and Preservice Teachers Discuss Books Together

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Partnerships where preservice teachers work with children have been found to be effective in providing real world field experiences for university students. However, little is known about what children gain from these collaborations. This research attempts to rectify this by analyzing a year-long literacy partnership in which 30 children and 55 preservice teachers participated in literature circles together, looking specifically at what factors influenced the children during this engagement. Through observations, free writes, interviews, and pen pal journals, the impact of the collaboration was examined. Results from this study suggest that the children had significant relationships and personal advocates, the children gained confidence in talking in literature circles and managing them, the children considered different perspectives and issues, and the children gained perspectives on college. Ultimately, the children's worldviews were enlarged. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]

  • "A Tender Age": Cultural Anxieties over the Child in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    In pursuit of this thesis, the book examines data derived from a wide range of sources, including medical texts, chronicles detailing historical events, legends of miracles of the Virgin Mother Mary, hagiography, martyrdom accounts of children, and theological texts written for a broader, more popular authence. Chapter 2 carefully attends and explicates debates between "orthodox" and "heretical" Christian groups about the necessity of infant baptism in light of varying views of the doctrine of original sin (a more detailed discussion of the correlation between developing heresies and Catholic responses during that time is provided in an appendix).

  • "A TSUNAMI WAVE OF SCIENCE": HOW THE TECHNOLOGIES OF TRANSHUMANIST MEDICINE ARE SHIFTING CANADA'S HEALTH RESEARCH AGENDA

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Today, the "transhuman" construct usually stands for a "transitional human," an intermediary form between the human and the posthuman,14 where the "posthuman" is thought to include "future beings whose basic capacities so radically exceed those of present humans as to be no longer unambiguously human by our current standards."15 Achieving a posthuman state is the goal of many transhumanists. Among other things, transhumanists "advocate the moral right for those who so wish to use technology to extend their mental and physical (including reproductive) capacities and to improve their control over their own lives."16 Seeking "personal growth beyond our current biological limitations,"17 transhumanists "foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition, including such parameters as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, suffering, and our confinement to the planet earth."18Shortly after hearing the buzz in the U.S., the Government of Canada, flush with fiscal surpluses, also began to take some of these claims seriously. In 2003, Canada's three most important scientific funding bodies convened a workshop entitled "Nanomedicine/Nanohealth" that was intended to survey the "relative position of nanomedicine in Canada" with the aim of making the country a "significant player."47 In preparation for the meeting, the CIHR commissioned the Canadian Nanobusiness Alliance [CNA] to assemble a report on nanotech applications in medicine. Drawing heavily on work by American researchers, the CNA outlined a selective taxonomy of existing nanomedical fields of research. In the introduction to this report, the authors adverted to the apparent health care crisis in Canada and the rising cost of health care caused (according to them) by an aging population. Stating that "the need for new solutions is vast," the CNA outlined existing research that focused exclusively on nano-enabled drugs, implantable devices, tissue enginee
