Europe's New Generation Of Nationalists: Understanding The Appeal Of Contemporary Radical Nationalism For European Youth, Madeliene Ingino 2016 University of Colorado, Boulder

Europe's New Generation Of Nationalists: Understanding The Appeal Of Contemporary Radical Nationalism For European Youth, Madeliene Ingino

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Through personal interviews with young nationalists from Belgium, Hungary, and Sweden, I seek to understand what motivates young people to identify with far-right nationalism in Europe. By providing an individual-level investigation of what motivates young Europeans’ nationalist ideology, I deliver a humanized, nuanced, and multidimensional understanding of nationalist views for young people in Europe. This analysis demonstrates that nationalism in Europe is not the same across different countries. With my sample set of Belgium, Hungary, and Sweden, representing Western, Central, and Northern Europe respectively, it is clear that nationalism varies according to the context within which it exists. In addition ...


Factors Associated With Harm Reduction Model Use Among Substance Abuse Counselors, Tiffany Madden 2016 Walden University

Factors Associated With Harm Reduction Model Use Among Substance Abuse Counselors, Tiffany Madden

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Drug overdose death rates in the United States have more than tripled since 1990 with more than 36,000 dying in 2008. In 2007 the estimated cost of drug use to U.S. society due to lost productivity, increased health care, and criminal justice costs was over $193 billion. Previous researchers have found that harm reduction is a viable treatment option within the field of addiction. The guiding premise in the harm reduction approach is that all people can achieve improved psychological and physiological health even if they are unable to be substance-free. However, there remains an important gap in ...


Still Glowing Strong: Review 2 (Australia), Maree Delofski 2015 Macquarie University, Sydney

Still Glowing Strong: Review 2 (Australia), Maree Delofski

RadioDoc Review

Still Glowing Strong is an elegant and poetic documentary about a dreamer. Harald Brobakkan has an obsessive desire to create an everlasting battery. From the outset, the minimalist music and Leganger’s beautifully written narration set up the tone of the documentary – gentle, respectful, restrained, occasionally melancholic yet never maudlin. Program maker Sindre Leganger very successfully conveys Harald’s story together with rich observations about the universe, science and its treatment of ‘outsiders’, life - and the nature of a very long relationship.


Norwegians In Michigan, Clifford Davidson 2015 Western Michigan University

Norwegians In Michigan, Clifford Davidson

Clifford Davidson

In Norwegians in Michigan, Clifford Davidson shows how Norwegians took advantage of opportunities when they began settling in Michigan in the nineteenth century. Norwegians sailed Lake Michigan, joined the lumber trade, farmed the northwest part of the state, and mined copper and iron in the Upper Peninsula. At the same time, they brought a unique culture that came to be associated with Michigan and the Midwest. The first generations of Norwegians in Michigan maintained close cultural ties with their homeland. Some Norwegian immigrants adjusted to life in a new land more quickly than others. Among these, according to Davidson, were ...


Still Glowing Strong: Review (Denmark), Anna Elisabeth Jessen 2015 University of Wollongong

Still Glowing Strong: Review (Denmark), Anna Elisabeth Jessen

RadioDoc Review

Still Glowing Strong is Norwegian Sindre Leganger’s tender story of an old man, Harald, who thinks he has invented an everlasting battery that could save the world. The problem is that no one has the time to look at it – his wife in particular. But as Leganger and the old man’s grandson take an interest, this short but remarkable feature reveals much about our finite lives and the eternal starry sky above us, about being stubborn, being optimistic and about hope. Leganger illustrates Zola’s dictum, that “art is a corner of reality seen through a temperament”. He ...
