Country Music In The Northeast: Two Careers, Joseph Ruff Aug 1993

Country Music In The Northeast: Two Careers, Joseph Ruff

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Although country music and its antecedents have received attention primarily as cultural phenomena of the South, the past twenty years have witnessed a growing scholarly interest in the interplay between commercial country music, vernacular components. and performers within a regional context. The commercial product which has now attained worldwide appeal undoubtedly sustains a significant relationship to the folkways and regional identity of the South; nonetheless, performers and vernacular styles from other areas of the country have contributed to the development of country music. Most important. many areas outside of the South maintain local traditions of country music entertainment. In this ...


Preliminary Cultural Resources Investigations For The Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge, Hidalgo County, Texas, Karl W. Kibler, Martha Doty Freeman, Amy C. Earls Jun 1993

Preliminary Cultural Resources Investigations For The Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge, Hidalgo County, Texas, Karl W. Kibler, Martha Doty Freeman, Amy C. Earls

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

Archeological, archival, and geomorphologic investigations were conducted for the proposed Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge Project in Hidalgo County, Texas, by Prewitt and Associates, Inc. from October 12-27, 1992. The purposes of these investigations were to locate and record any cultural resources within the project area, determine their eligibility for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and designation as State Archeological Landmarks, and to provide an overview of the Holocene geomorphic history of the project area. The geomorphic history of the project area suggests that the Rio Grande has experienced continuous channel aggradation from the end of the Pleistocene to ...


Archeological Survey And Monitoring Of Jtf-6 Road Improvements, Sierra Blanca, Hudspeth County, Texas, Sheridan K. Edwards, Duane E. Peter May 1993

Archeological Survey And Monitoring Of Jtf-6 Road Improvements, Sierra Blanca, Hudspeth County, Texas, Sheridan K. Edwards, Duane E. Peter

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

This report presents the results of cultural resource survey and monitoring activities performed in conjunction with a Department of Defense Joint Task Force Six (JTF-6) project near Sierra Blanca in Hudspeth County, Texas. These cultural resource investigations were initiated by a request from the U.S. Border Patrol of Sierra Blanca, Texas for planned improvements to 50.3 km (31.25 miles) of existing roads. The goal was to improve the U.S. Border Patrol's effectiveness in monitoring and controlling the ongoing drug trafficking activities along the U.S.-Mexico International Border. The road repair and historic preservation efforts ...


Poisons And Antidotes Among The Taman Of West Kalimantan, Indonesia, Jay H. Bernstein Apr 1993

Poisons And Antidotes Among The Taman Of West Kalimantan, Indonesia, Jay H. Bernstein

Publications and Research

Among the Taman of kabupaten Kapuas Hulu, West Kalimantan, certain oils are used to cast and counteract spells. Antidotes are said to be made from the same substance as poisons, and thus a given antidote implies ownership of the poison, and this is one reason people are furtive in using, exchanging, and discussing this aspect of folk-medicine. Magical oils are generally obtained outside Taman society, and are used most often to cure illnesses presumed to have been contracted outside the society. These oils contain essences, and so can be reproduced by adding oil. However, specific knowledge is needed to use ...


The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook Apr 1993

The Kavousi Coarse Wares: A Bronze Age Chronology For Survey In The Mirabello Area, East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook

Margaret S. Mook

This paper presents the results of the Kavousi-Thriphti Survey coarse-ware study. It is argued that coarse utilitarian pottery can be used for dating sites in archaeological survey, and further, that coarse pottery on the surface of any site with a domestic or storage function may represent a wider, and thus more accurate, chronological range than the associated fine wares. Detailed descriptions of 18 coarse fabric types identified in the survey region are presented. Thirteen of these fabrics were determined to be chronologically diagnostic. These fabric types, with their proposed chronological ranges and proveniences, provide sufficient data to begin analyzing the ...


New Excavations Of A Middle Minoan Cemetery In East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Jennifer L. Tobin, B.J. Hayden Apr 1993

New Excavations Of A Middle Minoan Cemetery In East Crete, Donald C. Haggis, Margaret S. Mook, Jennifer L. Tobin, B.J. Hayden

Margaret S. Mook

The Kalo Khorio Archaeological Rescue Project (KARP) is the excavation of a Middle Minoan (I-II) cemetery in the region of Kalo Khorio-Istron, at the southern edge of the Bay of Mirabella in eastern Crete. Excavation was conducted in September 1991 by members of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, and under the auspices and general directorship of Metaxia Tsipopoulou and Costis Davaras of the Greek Archaeological Service of eastern Crete.


The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson Apr 1993

The Late Minoan Iiic Pottery From The Kastro At Kavousi, East Crete, Margaret S. Mook, William D.E. Coulson

Margaret S. Mook

The last phase of the Bronze Age on Crete, Late Minoan IIIC, is poorly understood both culturally and chronologically. Although much has been said about the shapes and decoration of LM IIIC pottery, the analyses are primarily stylistic and lack a precise stratigraphical basis. The stylistic development within the pottery sequence is ill defined because the remains from type sites (such as Kastri, Karphi, and Phaistos) are incompletely published, extremely meager, or stratigraphically discontinuous. On the Kastro at Kavousi, however, three distinct chronological phases of LM IIIC occupation, representing the entirety of the period, in addition to a transitional LM ...


The Red Hawk's Cry, Malaika Anne King Apr 1993

The Red Hawk's Cry, Malaika Anne King

Institute for the Humanities Theses

The Red Hawk's Cry, a collection of twenty-eight poems, is arranged in three sections. "Calling It Back," the first section, consists of eight poems. The title and the poem rely on the concept of resurrecting people, the past, and pieces of the self in order to release them. Several of the poems' subjects are childhood and the personal mythology one weaves growing up. "Dialogue" has nine poems which revolve around relationships with lovers and friends. Though there appears to be a chronological order, the poems are placed more for interplay than for a constructed time line. The final section ...

Data Recovery At Justiceburg Reservior (Lake Alan Henry), Garza And Kent Counties, Texas: Phase Iii, Season 2, Douglas K. Boyd, Jay Peck, Steve A. Tomka, Karl W. Kibler

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The second of three seasons of Phase III data recovery at Justiceburg Reservoir (Lake Alan Henry), located on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in Garza and Kent counties, Texas, was conducted during the summer of 1991. 11le work included survey of dam borrow areas and site recording in and near these construction zones, limited work at selected rock art sites, geological investigation of an upland playa, and intensive investigations at two primarily Protohistoric period archeological sites. Pedestrian survey of active borrow areas resulted in the discovery and emergency recording and evaluation of site 41GR606 at the mouth ...

Lun Bawang Beads, Heidi Munan Jan 1993

Lun Bawang Beads, Heidi Munan

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

The Lun Bawang and related peoples of east Sarawak, west Sabah and Brunei have a long tradition of using beads for personal ornamentation and as value objects. They share in the general Borneo bead heritage, but follow their own tastes and fashions. Some Lun Bawang have started reproducing their favorite opaque beads from clay to sell as well as to wear on informal occasions. This new cottage industry brings a satisfactory income to the beadmakers, and helps to preserve their heirloom property.
