  • "2 3" primes naming "6": Evidence from masked priming

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    It is a common assumption for multiplication-solving models that single-digit multiplications are automatically retrieved. However, the experimental evidence for this is based on paradigms under suspicion. In this research, we employed a new procedure with the aim of assessing the automatic retrieval of multiplication more directly. In two experiments, multiplication automatism was studied using briefly presented primes (stimulus onset asynchrony = 48 msec) in a number-naming task. In Experiment 1, in the congruent conditions, the target and the prime were the same numbers (e.g., prime, 6; target, 6) or the target was the solution to the multiplication prime (e.g., prime, 2 3 = ; target, 6). In the incongruent conditions, no relationship existed between the primes and the targets (e.g., prime, 32; target, 6; or prime, 4 8 = ; target, 6). Experiment 2 explored the relevance of the equal sign for the multiplication-priming effect. Data showed that naming was faster when the solution of the multiplication prime matched the target, as compared with the incongruent condition (multiplication-priming effect), and that these effects were found irrespective of the presence of the equal sign. The fact that this priming effect was found even though the participants were unaware of the presentation of the primes supports the automatic character of single-digit multiplication. We conclude by arguing that this procedure is highly valuable for exploring the mechanisms involved in simple arithmetic solving. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]

  • "A Beastly Affair": Visual Representations of Animality and the Politics of the Dreyfus Affair

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    This article investigates the proliferation of animal imagery in the visual production of the Dreyfus Affair. The use of animal symbols and motifs, for the most part found in the anti-Dreyfusard "gutter press," are situated within deep fin-de-sicle concerns about the nation and the body. Drawing on politically marginal, yet popular newspapers such as Edouard Drumont's La Libre Parole Illustre and Henri Rochefort's L'Intransigeant, fears of national and bodily infestation, physiognomic stereotyping, and fantasies of ideological redemption are found to be rendered through the use of the animal as a device. The article also examines the scientific and literary developments in the study of the "natural," within which the human relationship to the animal is constructed throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries - providing a discursive framework from which political caricature drew its content and form.

  • "A Failure of Love": Racism and Original Sin in Walker Percy's Love in the Ruins

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Obama asserted that the Declaration of Independence "was stained by this nation's original sin of slavery" and reminded his authence that America has been unfaithful to its ideals of equality and justice in regard to its African American citizens.1 Walker Percy presents a similar conception of the sinful contradiction in the American experiment in his 1971 novel Love in the Ruins. "5 Sarah I. Petrides comments on the significance of the novel's concluding setting in terms of racial justice and human community: "Percy's Dr. More returns to communion in the Catholic Church only when he has been humbled from his previous position of white privilege - the mansion in Paradise Estates - to a point identified with African American oppression - the slave quarters next to the river.

  • "A Good Girl Like Nancy": Willa Cather's Sapphira and the Slave Girl

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    13 It is certainly possible that Cather, like other Southerners of her generation, may be trying to be loyal to and critical of the South at the same time; unable to fully indict her slave-owning ancestors for slavery's turbulent legacy, she produced instead a troubled version of reconciliation and forgiveness of the South and North, as recent critics have argued.14 Yet too much emphasis on the novel's autobiographical origins can also elide its social analysis in favor of a more palatable psychosocial critique, so that critics consistently reiterate the significance of its many mother-daughter pairs, which include Sapphira, her daughter Rachel, and her granddaughters as well as Jezebel, her granddaughter Till and great-granddaughter Nancy.\n Far from being helpless or an object of contempt, as Fetterly insists, Nancy may instead be resourceful for a girl who previously trusted others and was petted like a child in return.59 The homesickness and dread she displays during the final moments of her departure is a reminder of the high price she is paying for her sexual freedom, and this final act of selfdefense, leaving her home and family, is not only the ultimate sacrifice for her sexual autonomy but also leads to its fitting completion, for in Canada she marries a man of her own choosing, making Sapphira and Rachel her sexual role models, not her mother and great-grandmother (237).

  • "A Little Taller than Homer": Elizabeth Barrett Browning's "Hector in the Garden"

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    With spade and rake she plants a "huge giant" of rather ordinary perennial flowers and grasses in her garden, passively lying clothed in flowery armor and brandishing a sword of lilies: "Call him Hector, son of Priam!" In a thunderstorm, she fancies that the soul of Hector has come to animate his vegetable body, and she is happily terrified by his thunderous wail of sorrow (in good Homeric Greek) and his roaring pulse. Reading "Hector in the Garden" against a backdrop of classical myth criticism and the feminist impulse in Barrett Browning's work, I suggest that she deliberately layers her sentimental reminiscence over a subversive subtext, by posing Hector as an effigy of a vegetation god (like Adonis, Attis, Osiris, and the "green" and "wicker" men of English folklore), a vegetation god who is in this case created and killed by a little girl so that she can absorb his heroic power.

  • "A National Disgrace": Newspaper Coverage of the 1963 Birmingham Campaign in the South and Beyond

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Because of a series of editorial apologies for neglecting coverage of the civil rights movement, this article examines coverage of the 1963 Birmingham campaign in five prestige dailies to explore the social construction of news and the relationship between news organizations, their subjects, and their audiences. This study considers survey data that indicated regional attitudes toward civil rights and found coverage did not always reflect the views of a paper's readers. Southern newspapers tended to discredit movement leaders and their agenda, as well as to emphasize law enforcement's preparedness, while northern and western papers were sympathetic to the movement. The study specifically considers why a midwest paper was hostile to the movement in contradiction to its readers' pro-integration attitude. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]

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

    $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.

  • "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 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]

    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).
