A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia McAndrew 2009 John Carroll University

A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia Mcandrew

Malia McAndrew

This study examines the careers of African American beauty culturists as they worked in the United States, Europe, and Africa between 1945 and 1965. Facing push back at home, African American beauty entrepreneurs frequently sought out international venues that were hospitable and receptive to black Americans in the years following World War II. By strategically using European sites that white Americans regarded as the birthplace of Western fashion and beauty, African American entrepreneurs in the fields of modeling, fashion design, and hair care were able to win accolades and advance their careers. In gaining support abroad, particularly in Europe, these ...

Rescripting Stalinist Masculinity: Contesting The Male Ideal In Soviet Film And Society, 1953-1968, Marko Dumancic 2009 Western Kentucky University

Rescripting Stalinist Masculinity: Contesting The Male Ideal In Soviet Film And Society, 1953-1968, Marko Dumancic

Marko Dumančić

This dissertation traces the evolution of a new type of cinematic masculinity in the
fifteen years following Joseph Stalin’s death and examines how controversial post-Stalinist
movie heroes became a battleground for the country’s postwar values and ideals. During the
1950s and 1960s, postwar Soviet leadership faced the kinds of sociopolitical ruptures that
were also evident on the other side of the Iron Curtain; the Communist Party leadership
struggled to moderate the combined destabilizing effect of consumerism, a recalcitrant youth
(sub)culture, and Cold War anxieties. Nowhere was the angst of the postwar period more
obvious than in the ...


A Critical Race Analysis Of The Hiring Process For Head Coaches In Ncaa College Football, Keith Harrison 2009 University of Central Florida

A Critical Race Analysis Of The Hiring Process For Head Coaches In Ncaa College Football, Keith Harrison

Dr. C. Keith Harrison

In this article, we respond to Singer’s (2005) challenge to sport management scholars to consider race-based epistemologies in conducting certain kinds of research in the field, as we use critical race theory (CRT) as a framework to analyze the Black Coaches & Administrators (BCA) Hiring Report Card (HRC) (Harrison & Yee, 2009). The BCA HRC was created as a result of the access discrimination that has historically taken place in college sport (Brooks & Althouse, 2000; Cunningham & Sagas, 2005), which has consequently contributed to the underrepresentation of racial minorities in the head coach position in college football. The HRC places the hiring process of predominantly white institutions of higher education (PWIHE) under public scrutiny, with the ultimate goal of changing the decision-making process when these institutions hire head football coaches. This article utilizes CRT ...

Gay And Lesbian Elders: History, Law, And Identity Politics In The United States, Nancy J. Knauer 2009 Temple University School of Law

Gay And Lesbian Elders: History, Law, And Identity Politics In The United States, Nancy J. Knauer

Nancy J. Knauer

The approximately two million gay and lesbian elders in the United States are an underserved and understudied population. At a time when gay men and lesbians enjoy an unprecedented degree of social acceptance and legal protection, many elders face the daily challenges of aging isolated from family, detached from the larger gay and lesbian community, and ignored by mainstream aging initiatives. Drawing on materials from law, history, and social theory, this book integrates practical proposals for reform with larger issues of sexuality and identity. Beginning with a summary of existing demographic data and offering a historical overview of pre-Stonewall views ...
