Moving Upstream: Voices Of Asian Americans In Higher Education, Charles F. Van Rossum, Mary E. Taylor, Pablo Bueno Mendoza, Tom Nishi, Jason Minh Alt

Seventh Annual National Conference, POCPWI

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have traveled the professional waterways of higher education on different streams. For some, those streams have been very tranquil, yet for many the waters have been rather choppy. These experiences have been no different from other people of color who serve at predominantly white institutions.

Latino Reference Resources, Susan A. Vega Garcia Nov 2002

Latino Reference Resources, Susan A. Vega Garcia

Reference and Instruction Publications and Papers

The Hispanic and Latino presence in the US predates the existence of the US itself. Spanish exploration and colonization of North, Central, and South America in the sixteenth century began with the establishment of colonies in Puerto Rico in 1509. Florida, Texas, California, and the Southwest were regions of intense Spanish and (in Texas and further west) Mexican exploration, colonization, and cultivation throughout the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. As recently as 160 years ago, Texas was still part of Mexico; California and the entire Southwest comprised northernmost Mexico until 1848, when the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended hostilities in ...

Termination’S Legacy: The Discarded Indians Of Utah, H. Bert Jenson Oct 2002

Termination’S Legacy: The Discarded Indians Of Utah, H. Bert Jenson

English Faculty Publications

STARTING IN 1954 the Federal Government terminated onehundred plus Indian tribe across the Unit d States. All have subsequently been reinstated, that is, with one exception: the so called mixed-blood Utes in the Uintah Basin of Northeastern Utah. It is this still disenfranchised group of people that form the stimulus driving R. Warren Metcalf's book Termination's Legacy: The Discarded Indians of Utah. It is about these people that he writes; it is their cause he champion.


Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec Oct 2002

Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

The neoclassical design was the dominant design movement in landscape architecture at the turn of the last century, dictating the form and design of public parks for most of the first half of the twentieth century. Meridian Hill Park, located just north of the White ouse in Washington, DC, is considered the most ambitious neoclassical park ever conceived in the United States. The paper provides an overview of the design development of the park, illustrating how classical design precedents were used to create a contemporary neo-classical park.

Four School Leadership Teams Define Their Roles Within Organizational And Political Structures To Improve Student Learnign, Janet H. Chrispeels, Kathleen J. Martin Sep 2002

Four School Leadership Teams Define Their Roles Within Organizational And Political Structures To Improve Student Learnign, Janet H. Chrispeels, Kathleen J. Martin

Ethnic Studies

A shift in educational policy and practice is to involve teachers in school reform. Many reform programs require school leadership teams for involving teachers, yet few studies have examined how teachers take up such new roles and responsibilities. Using the dual conceptual lenses of open-systems and micropolitics, we investigate how four middle school teams engaged with their colleagues to construct an identity, assume leadership roles, and situate themselves in their schools. We argue that the influence of training enabled teams to assume four roles: communicators, staff developers, problem-solvers, and leaders of change. The findings suggest that teams and educational leaders ...

Transforming Chicana/O And Latina/O Politics: Globalization, And The Formation Of Transnational Resistance In The U.S. And Chiapas, Anna Sampaio Aug 2002

Transforming Chicana/O And Latina/O Politics: Globalization, And The Formation Of Transnational Resistance In The U.S. And Chiapas, Anna Sampaio

Ethnic Studies

In 1993 Congress passed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), with great anticipation at home and abroad that the newly formed regional alliance between Mexico, the United States, and Canada would increase productivity, reduce inefficiency, and strengthen the states' economies. However, the agreement was not met with universal enthusiasm. Among many of the rural poor, campesinos, working classes, racial minorities, and indigenous populations of all three states, NAFTA's passage signaled an unprecedented move toward globalization and mounting economic pressures (Mander and Goldsmith, 1996). In particular, in Chiapas, Mexico, peasants, campesinos/farmers, and indigenous populations had for some time ...


Introduction: Processes, New Prospects, And Approaches, Carlos Vélez-Ibáñez, Anna Sampaio Aug 2002

Introduction: Processes, New Prospects, And Approaches, Carlos Vélez-Ibáñez, Anna Sampaio

Ethnic Studies

One of the best ways to begin to understand the cultures of the Latina/o populations of the United States is to consider the term as it has been used and appropriated over time. The term "Latino" (Spanish Latino Americana), according to David Bushnell 0970: 3) was first used by the Colombian publicist Jose Maria Torres Caicedo in 1856 (Miguel Tinker Salas, personal communication, 2001). "Latin" was used in the United States, especially in films from the 1920s through the 1960s as a cover designation that masked the origin of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans superseding the word "Spanish" to accomplish ...


Conclusion: New Projects And Old Reminders, Carlos Vélez-Ibáñez, Anna Sampaio Aug 2002

Conclusion: New Projects And Old Reminders, Carlos Vélez-Ibáñez, Anna Sampaio

Ethnic Studies

Globalization and the transnational networks established by economic integration have produced a context in which the gathering of knowledge about Latina/o and Latin American communities is largely devoid of any processual perspective. This means that we must construct an alternative methodology to capture the international and transnational social fields and arenas of this multinational population. Nowhere does this type of dialogue appear more necessary than in studies of immigration from Latin America to the United States. In particular, we maintain that the integration of Latin American and Latina/o studies requires viewing these new waves of migrants as part ...

The Filipino Question In Asian And Pacific Islander America: Rethinking Regional Origins In Diaspora, Joanne L. Rondilla Aug 2002

The Filipino Question In Asian And Pacific Islander America: Rethinking Regional Origins In Diaspora, Joanne L. Rondilla

Faculty Publications, Sociology

About the book: Pacific Islander Americans constitute one of the United States' least understood ethnic groups. As expected, stereotypes abound: Samoans are good at football; Hawaiians make the best surfers; all Tahitians dance. Although Pacific history, society, and culture have been the subjects of much scholarly research and writing, the lives of Pacific Islanders in the diaspora (particularly in the U.S.) have received far less attention. The contributors to this volume of articles and essays compiled by the Pacific Islander Americans Research Project hope to rectify this oversight. Pacific Diaspora brings together the individual and community histories of Pacific ...

Asian American Voter Registration In Massachusetts: A Preliminary Report On Ten Cities And Towns, Paul Watanabe, Michael Liu Jul 2002

Asian American Voter Registration In Massachusetts: A Preliminary Report On Ten Cities And Towns, Paul Watanabe, Michael Liu

Institute for Asian American Studies Publications

The 2000 Census reports that Massachusetts’ Asian American population is the state’s fastest growing racial group, increasing by 68% since 1990. By 2025, the number of Asian Americans in Massachusetts is projected to expand to 534,000 from the current total of 238,124. This dramatic growth, however, has apparently not been accompanied by high levels of Asian American electoral participation and political clout. A major challenge for Asian Americans, therefore, is to substantially increase their participation and influence.

Professor Vibhuti Patel

Census 2001 has revealed a deterioration in the juvenile malefemale sex ratio in Kerala. Hospital birth records can help establish sex ratios at birth and thus the prevalence of female foeticide. However, civil society and the state will need to pitch in to check the misuse of technology for female foeticide in Kerala

The Integration Of The Hispanic/Latino Immigrant Workforce State Of Nebraska Mexican American Commission Project Report, Miguel A. Carranza, Lourdes Gouveia

Latino/Latin American Studies Reports

The main purpose of the study was to explore the degree to which Latino newcomers are being effectively and positively integrated into the economic, social, and political lives and institutions of the state and local communities. The project consisted of three phases. The first was based on analysis of Census 2000 figures, government documents, media archives, and published research. The second phase developed a survey questionnaire mailed to a wide array of agencies and organizations directly or indirectly charged with integrating newcomer populations. In the third phase we conducted focus groups with newcomers and key organizations in three Nebraska communities ...


Deconstruction Of Stereotypical Images And Mediated Messages In African-American Sitcoms, Shenetha L. Wilburn May 2002

Deconstruction Of Stereotypical Images And Mediated Messages In African-American Sitcoms, Shenetha L. Wilburn

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

This study examines the images of African Americans in black-themed sitcoms and mediated messages presented here. The study was based on the premise that the images of African Americans on television sitcoms are one dimensional and comedic. A content analysis approach was used to analyze various television sitcoms. Definitions were used to determine what type of image existed using the foundation provided by Donald Bogle and Stewart Hall. The researcher found that although many of the African-American-themed sitcoms investigated represented traditional stereotypical images, there were mediated messages in these sitcoms, which offered a new and different perspective on African Americans ...

Antecedents And Consequences Of Consumer Ethnocentrism Across Russia's Three Sub-Cultures, Shawn Thelen Apr 2002

Antecedents And Consequences Of Consumer Ethnocentrism Across Russia's Three Sub-Cultures, Shawn Thelen

Theses and Dissertations in Business Administration

Shimp and Sharma (1987) extended the concept of ethnocentrism to commercial products with the development of a 17-item Consumer Ethnocentrism Scale [CETSCALE]. Consumer ethnocentrism is the belief that purchasing imported products harms the local economy, increases unemployment, and is morally wrong (Skimp and Sharma 1987). Shimp and Sharma (1987) called for studies to determine antecedents to consumer ethnocentrism and to apply the CETSCALE across geographic and regional segments. This dissertation addresses a void in the literature by examining antecedents; Inglehart's Materialism/Post Materialism (1977) and Holbrook's Nostalgia (1993), and outcome variables; product purchase preference, of consumer ethnocentrism across ...
