Ole Hendricks, The Fiddler Of Elbow Lake, Amy M. Shaw Apr 2016

Ole Hendricks, The Fiddler Of Elbow Lake, Amy M. Shaw

Amy M. Shaw

Ole Hendricks was a gifted Norwegian immigrant fiddler who settled in western Minnesota in 1890 and who left behind a 97-page musical manuscript full of traditional dance tunes. I am currently engaged in transcribing the tunes into digital form and researching this music and Ole's life story.   I shared the preliminary results of my study during this one-hour presentation to an audience of approximately 75 people.

A Childe Bibliography: A Hand-List Of The Works Of Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving, Peter Gathercole Jan 2014

A Childe Bibliography: A Hand-List Of The Works Of Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving, Peter Gathercole

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

A hand-list devoted to the published writings of Vere Gordon Childe (1892-1957). It includes political writings, letters to newspapers, and reviews, as well as his books, articles and contributions to books. It covers his Australian years as well his academic career in Britain. Because its aim is to create an historical record of both Childe's work and the continual contemporary interest in his ideas, the list is arranged year by year to highlight his productivity and the periods when attention to his work was greatest. There are four sections: (i) books and monographs; (ii) articles and chapters; (iii) reviews ...

The Fast And The Furious, Sharon Lomurno May 2013

The Fast And The Furious, Sharon Lomurno

Sharon L Lomurno

The Fast and the Furious

Wednesday night I had received a tip from Eric Altman of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society. The report was coming from an area about 2 hours away from me and he couldn’t get to it and asked if I wanted to take it over. I said heck yeah and I called the witness with the number Eric provided.

The witness claimed he was out in the field walking his dogs when the dogs became frightened and bolted back to the house. He saw a large ape-faced beast pacing back and forth just behind the pines ...


Journalism In A Pr World, Michael I. Niman Ph.D. Apr 2013

Journalism In A Pr World, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.

Michael I Niman Ph.D.

Mike Niman discusses the future of journalism in a PR-dominated communication environment. In particular, he examines the migration of talent from journalism to the PR industry, the collapse of mainstream journalism and the role of an emergent alternative media as American journalism goes through metamorphosis from what it was to what it could become. Journalism is a social good that should equip people to understand and resist spin. Niman argues that mainstream American journalism, rather than rising to this challenge, has transparently succumbed to serving as an arm of the corporate PR industry, thus laying the groundwork for its own ...


Territorializing Indigeneity And Powwow Markets, Blaire Gagnon Feb 2013

Territorializing Indigeneity And Powwow Markets, Blaire Gagnon

Blaire Gagnon

North American powwows are presented by organizers and presumed by society at large to be Native events. Research has rarely considered the processes by which powwows become places or the role of territorialization in that process. This article examines the socio-spatial practices powwow organizing committees employ to construct powwows and their arts and crafts markets as places from undifferentiated space and the responses to these practices. I suggest that powwow committees construct powwow space as a form of sovereign political space from which they can manage relations with multiple constituencies and in which contemporary conceptions of Nativeness are negotiated.


Indigenismo From Below? Carlos Castaneda, New Age Anthropology And Identity Politics, Ageeth Sluis Jan 2013

Indigenismo From Below? Carlos Castaneda, New Age Anthropology And Identity Politics, Ageeth Sluis

Ageeth Sluis

This paper explores the intersections between Carlos Castaneda’s work on shamanism, indigenismo, and larger changes within the field of anthropology from the 1960s to 1980s. Castaneda introduced a large readership to Mexico at a time when the Americas saw pronounced socio-political and cultural changes. Despite criticism by fellow anthropologists, Castaneda's bestselling books became instrumental in constructing new indigenous identities, a magical Mexico, and new directions in anthropology. This paper seeks to understand Castaneda within a larger historical context of the historical trajectories of indigenismo and changes in gender and race identity politics both in Mexico and the U ...


Engendering S2013tatus And Value In The Powwow Art Market, Blaire Gagnon Dec 2012

Engendering S2013tatus And Value In The Powwow Art Market, Blaire Gagnon

Blaire Gagnon

This article examines the relationship between people and objects in the powwow arts and crafts market. Over the past century, the field of Indian art developed a system of valuation that employs the "negative relationship" to create a hierarchy of people, objects, and markets. Central to this system are regimes of value associated with art and commodity. I argue that the presence of the mass-produced makes it possible for artisan-vendors to employ the negative relationship to define, value, and make sustainable the artistic in the powwow market context. Ultimately, this marks artisan-vendors and mass-produced vendors as position-takers with the Indian ...


Palestinian Refugees, The Nation, And The Shifting Political Landscape, Randa Farah Dec 2012

Palestinian Refugees, The Nation, And The Shifting Political Landscape, Randa Farah

Randa R Farah Dr.

This article briefly examines the historical causes that led to the uprooting of the Palestinians in 1948, who today represent one of the longest and largest refugee situations in contemporary history. It then draws on field research on refugees in Jordan to trace some of the pertinent political and ideological shifts since the Palestinian Nakba. Its emphasis is on refugee camps, approached here as palimpsests refracting different historical periods, which for the purpose of this article are divided into: the Nasserite period in the 1950s and early 1960s, the heyday of the Palestinian national liberation movement, beginning in the mid-1960s ...

Semantics (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges Dec 2011

Semantics (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

A primary reason for using language is, of course, to convey meaning from one interlocutor to another. But how does language convey meaning? How does language structure contribute to meaning? How does context shape meaning? How do linguists talk about and analyze meaning? In this course, we will examine basic concepts, theories, and analytical techniques used by contemporary linguists in the study of meaning in natural language. Students will gain practice with different types of semantic analyses through assignments and problem sets. The goals of the course are (1) to provide a grounding in semantics as a sub-field of linguistics ...


Narrative Analysis (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges Dec 2011

Narrative Analysis (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

Narrative is central to human interaction. As we interact with one another, we share stories and make sense of the world through narrative. Given the importance of narrative in human lives, it is no surprise that it has been studied across a wide range of disciplines, from literary studies to psychology, folklore, anthropology, sociology and linguistics. In this course, we will examine narrative from a sociocultural linguistic perspective which takes into account the interdisciplinary nature of narrative studies. We will place particular emphasis on the way narrative constructs the social world in which we live and creates the identities that ...


Language In The Usa (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges Dec 2011

Language In The Usa (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

Americans grapple with a number of issues related to language in the areas of education, civil rights, and government policy. In this course, we will explore some of the language issues that have arisen in American society with emphasis placed on the way language itself has become the object of focus in social and political debates. One such case is the decision by the Oakland School Board in 1996 to recognize Ebonics as the primary language of its African American students. This decision created intense nationwide controversy, and illustrates the way race and socioeconomic issues intersect with language attitudes. Another ...


江戸時代女性の噂話, Cecilia S. Seigle Ph.D. Dec 2011

江戸時代女性の噂話, Cecilia S. Seigle Ph.D.

Cecilia S Seigle Ph.D.

江戸時代の女性は家庭の主婦としての忙しさからか、残念ながら随筆や見聞記をあまり残していない。江戸時代でも後半にはかなり多くの女性が日記を書いたらしいけれど、男性の見聞酒随筆集に比べると非常に少ない 。 しかし女性は特殊な興味の対象としてうわさ話の種になったので、この本では女性中心のうわさ話を調べてみた。記録された女性の噂話も男性についての噂話に比べれば少ないのだが、全体的には膨大な量である。

Implementing Environmental Justice In Appalachia: The Social And Cultural Context Of Mountaintop Removal Mining As Seen Through The Lenses Of Law And Documentaries, Evan Barret Smith Dec 2011

Implementing Environmental Justice In Appalachia: The Social And Cultural Context Of Mountaintop Removal Mining As Seen Through The Lenses Of Law And Documentaries, Evan Barret Smith

Evan Barret Smith

Mountaintop removal is a form of mining that has major effects on the ecology and people of central Appalachia. The practice has been gaining increasing attention from the EPA and popular cultural sources as an environmental justice issue. Recent decisions by the EPA incorporate an environmental justice analysis as contextualization, but the perspective provided is problematic. This Article compares the way that the social and cultural context of mountaintop removal has been framed in judicial opinions and EPA documents to understand how legal documents understand and perpetuate the conflicts related to mountaintop removal. To further widen the lens, seven documentary ...


Introduction To Linguistics (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges Dec 2011

Introduction To Linguistics (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

Linguistics is the study of the various dimensions of language structure and language use. In this course, we will provide a basic overview of the field of linguistics by focusing on the three dimensions of language structure—the sound system (phonetics, phonology), vocabulary (lexicon, morphology), and grammar (syntax)—and the way linguistic structure and context give rise to meaning (semantics, pragmatics). In addition, we will consider how social practices shape and are shaped by language use (sociolinguistics), how children acquire language (language acquisition), and how we learn second languages (language learning). Students will gain practice with different types of linguistic ...


Language, Race And Ethnicity (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges Dec 2011

Language, Race And Ethnicity (Prospective Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

What is race? What is ethnicity? How is racial identity assigned, assumed, constructed and performed? How does race explicitly as well as implicitly order social life? How does racism manifest itself in our discourse—not just overtly but covertly? What is a “color blind” society? What is a “post-racial” society? A focus on language is central to answering these and many related questions. In this course, we will explore the work done by sociocultural linguists within the American context on the way language intersects with issues pertaining to race and ethnicity. Primary emphasis will be placed on the way ethnoracial ...
