Diversifying Shakespeare, Ruben Espinosa Feb 2016

Diversifying Shakespeare, Ruben Espinosa

Ruben Espinosa

Critical race studies in Shakespeare have generated a vital body of scholarship that affords us deeper insight both to racial formations in early modern England and to the way contemporary understandings of racial difference infuse Shakespeare with a culturally relevant currency. However, critical race studies remain relatively marginalized within the broader field of Shakespeare studies. This essay reviews and underscores the scholarship that has kindled an important conversation about race in Shakespeare in an attempt to bring it to the fore, and it draws attention to the promise behind ethnic studieswith particular attention to Latino and Latina identitywithin ...


Intersection Theory: A More Elucidating Paradigm Of Quantitative Analysis, Marla Kohlman Jan 2016

Intersection Theory: A More Elucidating Paradigm Of Quantitative Analysis, Marla Kohlman

Marla Kohlman

Intersection theory, a theoretical paradigm which calls attention to the interlocking forces of race, class, and gender, among other master status characteristics, is used to predict that respondents report having been targeted for sexual harassment under circumstances that are quite different from one demographic group to another. Sexual harassment is interpreted as primarily a power relation such that workers in less powerful positions are expected to be more vulnerable to targeting. This study may be distinguished from most studies utilizing intersection theory as a theoretical paradigm because it is a quantitative analysis of a broad, national set of data, the ...


Race, Rank And Gender: The Determinants Of Sexual Harassment For Men And Women In The Military, Marla Kohlman Jan 2016

Race, Rank And Gender: The Determinants Of Sexual Harassment For Men And Women In The Military, Marla Kohlman

Marla Kohlman

Purpose – To ascertain how the institutional environment of the armed forces has differentially impacted men and women in their experiences of sexual harassment.

Methodology – Logistic regression analyses of the 1995 Armed Forces Sexual Harassment Survey and the 2002 Status of the Armed Forces Survey – Workplace and Gender Relations.

Findings – Gender does not override all other factors in determining who is most likely to be targeted for sexual harassment in the military. Gender is shown to be most informative about the likelihood of experiencing sexual harassment for women only when combined with race and rank. For men, however, it seems that ...


“Turning To The Stranger In Shakespeare’S Henry V”, Ruben Espinosa Dec 2015

“Turning To The Stranger In Shakespeare’S Henry V”, Ruben Espinosa

Ruben Espinosa

This collection is currently under contract with MLA. With a twenty-first century American student demographic in mind, I aim to interrogate how attention to the negotiation of alterity in Henry V registers Shakespeare’s keen attention to the role of the immigrant/alien/stranger/other in the nation-building enterprise of the play, and also how it reveals the play’s rich cultural currency for today’s underrepresented students, whose own epistemological standpoints are informed by issues of immigration, xenophobia, and the imagined value of homogeneity.

Le (NéO)Colonialisme LittéRaire : Quatre Romans Africains Face À L'Institution LittéRaire Parisienne (1950-1970), Vivan Steemers Sep 2014

Le (NéO)Colonialisme LittéRaire : Quatre Romans Africains Face À L'Institution LittéRaire Parisienne (1950-1970), Vivan Steemers

Vivan Steemers

Le texte littéraire ne naît pas en apesanteur, selon Edward Saïd. Il se présente dans un contexte historique et social et dépend pour son existence d'instances de pouvoir spécifiques : maisons d'édition, presse, critique, comités de prix littéraires. Ce constat s'impose avec encore plus de force lorsque l'on considère la situation des auteurs africains francophones qui sont presque entièrement tributaires de l'infrastructure éditoriale parisienne et des autres instances légitimantes du pays (anciennement) colonisateur. Cette étude présente le discours éditorial et critique de la première édition de quatre romans africains francophones publiés en métropole pendant les années ...


Whiteness And Social Change: Remnant Colonialisms And White Civility In Australia And Canada, Colin Salter Jul 2014

Whiteness And Social Change: Remnant Colonialisms And White Civility In Australia And Canada, Colin Salter

Colin Salter

In the early hours of the Sunday 19 September 2004, two men were seen running away from McCauley's Beach towards the coastal village of Thirroul, located south of Sydney in the northern suburbs of the Illawarra region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Moments later the nearby Sandon Point Aboriginal Tent Embassy (SPATE) burst into flames. The complete destruction of the embassy's structure and the life-threatening situation for the five people who were asleep inside marked a significant point in the long-running dispute over the future of the Sandon Point area. The assailants' actions provide a stark contrast ...

Environmental Justice And Health: An Analysis Of Persons Of Color Injured At The Work Place, Jennifer Schoenfish-Keita, Glenn Johnson

Glenn S Johnson

Occupational and environmental hazards have a direct impact on people of color lives. People of color are disproportionately employed in the dirtiest and low-paying jobs in the United States. This study investigates workplace safety for persons of color from the analysis of three personal injury cases. These personal injury cases include two African-American females and one African American male who were killed or severely injured as a result of their job or the type of transportation they used trying to get to their place of work. The authors use the Environmental Justice Framework to examine how persons of color are ...

Curriculum Leadership Theorizing And Crafting: Regenerative Themes And Humble Togetherness, Vonzell Agosto, Omar Salaam, Donna Elam Dec 2013

Curriculum Leadership Theorizing And Crafting: Regenerative Themes And Humble Togetherness, Vonzell Agosto, Omar Salaam, Donna Elam

Vonzell Agosto

This chapter illustrates how indigenous concepts, philosophies, and traditions were introduced into a doctoral course on curriculum theory and undertaken by students to inform their development of cultural and curriculum leadership. A central activity in the course was clay-molding. Qualitative data in the form of personal reflections and student work samples (pottery, book review, essay) are accompanied by academic literature to provide insight into the question of how indigenous concepts support sense-making in the development of curriculum leadership that is culturally emancipatory. Personal reflections on the course from the professor and student are extended by a critical friend who contributes ...

Phoebe Snow: Odd, Rare And Sublime, Vincent L. Stephens May 2013

Phoebe Snow: Odd, Rare And Sublime, Vincent L. Stephens

Vincent L Stephens

A draft from my work-in-progress essay collection on post-war American popular singing "Sound Love." The essay argues that Phoebe Snow is unique among her generation of singer-songwriters as she is more notable as an interpreter than as a writer. Her synthesis of elements from blues, jazz, pop, gospel and R&B defy category as does her artistry.


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 ...

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 ...

Anay's Will To Learn: A Woman's Education In The Shadow Of The Maquiladora, Elaine Hampton Dec 2012

Anay's Will To Learn: A Woman's Education In The Shadow Of The Maquiladora, Elaine Hampton

Elaine Hampton

The opening of free trade agreements in the 1980s caused major economic changes in Mexico and the United States. These economic activities spawned dramatic social changes in Mexican society. One young Mexican woman, Anay Palomeque de Carrillo, rode the tumultuous wave of these economic activities from her rural home in tropical southern Mexico to the factories in the harsh desert lands of Ciudad Juárez during the early years of the city’s notorious violence.

During her years as an education professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, author Elaine Hampton researched Mexican education in border factory (maquiladora) communities ...

War Baby / Love Child: Mixed Race Asian American Art, Laura Kina, Wei Ming Dariotis Dec 2012

War Baby / Love Child: Mixed Race Asian American Art, Laura Kina, Wei Ming Dariotis

Laura Kina

War Baby / Love Child examines hybrid Asian American identity through a collection of essays, artworks, and interviews at the intersection of critical mixed race studies and contemporary art. The book pairs artwork and interviews with nineteen emerging, mid-career, and established mixed race/mixed heritage Asian American artists, including Li-lan and Kip Fulbeck, with scholarly essays exploring such topics as Vietnamese Amerasians, Korean transracial adoptions, and multiethnic Hawai’i. As an increasingly ethnically ambiguous Asian American generation is coming of age in an era of “optional identity,” this collection brings together first-person perspectives and a wider scholarly context to shed light ...
