Aesop's Fables And George Eliot's Brother And Sisters Sonnets, Margaret Wolfit Dec 2005

Aesop's Fables And George Eliot's Brother And Sisters Sonnets, Margaret Wolfit

The George Eliot Review

It is always exciting to discover something new and to come upon it unexpectedly. That was my happy experience a few years ago. I had decided to try my hand at devising a biographical programme on George Eliot and to attempt to portray her at the end of her life, reminiscing on past events. I wanted to absorb as much as I could about her, starting with her early days. What were the influences that shaped her life and writing? What books had she read as a child?

She tells us: 'I could not be satisfied with the things around ...

Publications from the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy

Strategies For Advocacy In Higher Education, Marie Byrd-Blake, Linda Hampton Wesson Oct 2005

Strategies For Advocacy In Higher Education, Marie Byrd-Blake, Linda Hampton Wesson

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The feminist phase theory (Tetreault, 1985) was used to examine the cultural patterns embedded in a department of a large, urban university, to classify how the faculty in the department perceived women, and to examine how our own behavior as two newly hired associate and assistant professors contributed or did not contribute to these patterns of behavior. Three years of field notes, anecdotal records, transcriptions of meetings, interviews, and student comments were categorized to develop experienced-derived strategies. These strategies encourage women in higher education to: (a) recognize their own enmeshment in patriarchal practices; (b) disrupt these practices through their own ...

Review Of 5 Leadership Essentials For Women: Developing Your Ability To Make Things Happen Compiler Lisa Clark, Clarissa M. Craig

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Because much of the scholarship on leadership has been constructed using male norms (Nidiffer, 2001), there is added attraction when the essentials of successful leadership are targeted for women. 5 Leadership Essentials for Women: Developing Your Ability to Make Things Happen addresses five leadership skills that, according to the "compiler" [sic] Linda Clark, are designed with women's needs in mind. The leadership essentials explored are communication, relationship essentials, time management, group building, and conflict management.

There are some fundamental principles that relate to writing. For instance, you must sit down and begin. Writing is an illusive task. Procrastination and hesitation are poor companions to the work of the writer.

Women In Educational Leadership Finding Common Ground, Kathleen Murphey, Glenda Moss, Susan Hannah, Roberta Wiener

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The purpose of this research project was to engage in self-reflective analysis of leadership development as an ongoing process of social action towards democratizing education. Four White women connected by their work as educational leaders, teachers and administrators, engaged this topic by conducting a dialogical analysis of their experiences in leadership. They dialogued from what were technically different positions in the hierarchy at their University and implemented a research process to speak across or marginalize those technical differences to produce a text that explored the rich terrain of leading in which they shared experiences of growth, the conceptual frameworks that ...

Identity, Marilyn L. Grady, Barbara Lacost

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

For women who have been unrecognized for their work in education, being lost due to name changes, phone changes, and email changes does not seem to be very helpful to the cause of recognizing the work of the 51 %. We have had enough invisibility and enough flying around like ivory-billed woodpeckers.

Women In History--Dr. Susan Laflesche Picotte: American Physician And Heroine, Bernita L. Krumm

Susan LaFlesche Picotte walked in two cultures and, by any measure, served as a model for both.

She dedicated her life to the service of others; she is without a doubt the true American heroine. References

Changing Ideals Of Womanhood During The Nineteenth-Century Woman Movement, Susan M. Cruea Sep 2005

Changing Ideals Of Womanhood During The Nineteenth-Century Woman Movement, Susan M. Cruea

General Studies Writing Faculty Publications

This article focuses on the Woman Movement, an organization which was developed as a result of the effort of women to improve their status in and usefulness to society. The objectives of the movement were to initiate measures of charitable benevolence, temperance and social welfare and to initiate struggles for civic rights, social freedoms, higher education, remunerative occupations, and the right to vote. The setting of these goals resulted from women's rising awareness of the precariousness of their situation in the patriarchal society of the 1800s.

Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum: A New Gospel For Women By Women, Agnieszka Markiewicz

To See Her Face, To Hear Her Voice: Profiling The Place Of Women In Early Upper East Tennessee, 1773-1810., Sσndra Lee Allen Henson Aug 2005

To See Her Face, To Hear Her Voice: Profiling The Place Of Women In Early Upper East Tennessee, 1773-1810., Sσndra Lee Allen Henson

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Following the Proclamation Act of 1763 growing numbers of colonists arrived in upper East Tennessee to settle and build wherever they could make arrangements with local groups of Cherokee. While these first families were occupied with survival, the British colonies continued to thrive. Concurrent with growing prosperity was the increasing determination of colonists to exercise control over their property and economic interests. Frontier exigencies affected family strategies for dividing labor and creating economic endeavors. A commonly held view asserts that where women were scarce and needed, rigid sex-role distinctions could not prevail. This thesis will present research of the earliest ...

Inducible Dna Breaks In Ig S Regions Are Dependent On Aid And Ung, Carol E. Schrader, Erin K. Linehan, Sofia N. Mochegova, Robert T. Woodland, Janet Stavnezer

Women’s Health Research Faculty Publications

Class switch recombination (CSR) occurs by an intrachromosomal deletion whereby the IgM constant region gene (Cmu) is replaced by a downstream constant region gene. This unique recombination event involves formation of double-strand breaks (DSBs) in immunoglobulin switch (S) regions, and requires activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID), which converts cytosines to uracils. Repair of the uracils is proposed to lead to DNA breaks required for recombination. Uracil DNA glycosylase (UNG) is required for most CSR activity although its role is disputed. Here we use ligation-mediated PCR to detect DSBs in S regions in splenic B cells undergoing CSR. We find that the ...
