Empty Ritual: Young-Adult Stepchildren's Perceptions Of The Remarriage Ceremony, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite, Jody Kellas Aug 2014

Empty Ritual: Young-Adult Stepchildren's Perceptions Of The Remarriage Ceremony, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite, Jody Kellas

Dawn O. Braithwaite

This qualitative study investigated 80 young-adult stepchildren’s talk about one of their parents’ remarriage ceremony. The remarriage event was celebrated in six types of ritual enactments, five of which celebrated the couple’s marriage and one of which was family-centered in its celebration of the beginning of the new stepfamily. Three factors led stepchildren to find the remarriage ceremony empty: (i) a ritual form that was too traditional or not traditional enough; (ii) a ritual enactment that failed to pay homage to either the stepchild’s family of origin or the stepfamily as a unit; and (iii) a ritual ...

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 ...

Crisis, Tragedy And Recovery Network Case Study: Iowa City Flood Archive, Paul A. Soderdahl

Paul A Soderdahl

The rapidly expanding digital library network Crisis, Tragedy and Recovery (CTR) was funded in 2009 by the National Science Foundation through a three year grant. CRT captures and stores information for spontaneous events so users can access, search, analyze, and study these collections and learn from events and tragedies that happen around the world and across cultures and languages.

The panel will discuss the need for this distributed digital library and the project’s objectives, as well as some of the challenges faced. Topics will include lessons learned, best practices, and the connections between automated text mining, storytelling technologies, expert ...


Chinese Investment In Ethiopia: Devlopmental Opportunity Or Deepening China's New Mercantilism?, Asayehgn Desta Nov 2009

Chinese Investment In Ethiopia: Devlopmental Opportunity Or Deepening China's New Mercantilism?, Asayehgn Desta

Asayehgn Desta

The political warfare theorists argue that the so-called \"cooperative\" investments undertaken by China in Africa are devastating and exploitative. In contrast, the position of the South-South Cooperative school of thought stresses that China's increased aid, trade, and investment in Africa is a means to foster Africa's self-sufficiency and sustainable development in the 21st century. Before romanticizing on illusion, the two schools of thought need to be tested empirically. The empirical part of this study attempts to advance the understanding and rationalization of the various Chinese investments in Ethiopia. More specifically, the central motive of this study was to ...

A Limited Engagement: Mexico And Its Diaspora, Roger D. Waldinger Nov 2009

A Limited Engagement: Mexico And Its Diaspora, Roger D. Waldinger

Roger D Waldinger

Responding to migrants’ many, ongoing involvements with their home communities, sending states have increasingly adopted policies of diaspora engagement, seeking both to retain the emigrants’ loyalties and shape their attachments so as best to meet home state leaders’ goals. This paper seeks to gain traction on the politics of diaspora engagement by studying two contrasting aspects of the Mexican experience – expatriate voting, a relatively new development, and provision of the matrícula consular, a long-standing component of traditional consular services, though one that has recently been transformed. Focusing on the complex set of interactions linking migrants, sending states, and receiving states ...


Do Profit Maximisers Take Cold Showers? Another Look At Protection And Technical Efficiency, Neil Campbell, Jeffrey Kline Nov 2009

Do Profit Maximisers Take Cold Showers? Another Look At Protection And Technical Efficiency, Neil Campbell, Jeffrey Kline

Neil Campbell

In this paper we consider whether a 'cold shower' is possible if the firm we are analysing is a conventional neoclassical profit-maximising firm facing competitively determined prices. In the context of this analysis, the term 'cold shower' refers to a situation where the removal of a protective subsidy induces investment in a cost-reducing technology. First we show that if the investment lowers marginal cost everywhere, then our firm will never respond to the removal of the subsidy by making the investment. We then use this result to carefully construct examples where the investment does not lower marginal cost everywhere. These ...

Predicting Police Support For A Gang Prevention Program, Marc Ruffinengo Nov 2009

Predicting Police Support For A Gang Prevention Program, Marc Ruffinengo

Marc A. Ruffinengo

A gap is present in the police performance literature that exists due to the use of performance measures that are more in line with the reactive aspect of the police mission. The present study seeks to determine which individual officer and departmental characteristics are more indicative of tolerance and attitudinal compatibility with a proactive crime prevention program. Using surveys from police officers participating in the GREAT (Gang Resistance Education and Training) program, this study focuses on identifying officer and departmental characteristics that are indicative of tolerance and belief (i.e. support) in the potential for the program to reduce gang ...

Using Evidence-Basedresearch To Redirectaconversation: Newspapers’ Coverage Of Strategies To Address College Binge Drinking, Michelle Campo, Natoshia Askelson, Mary Slonske, Teresa Mastin

Michelle L. Campo

This study examines selected newspapers’ coverage of college binge drinking while also serving as an example of evidence-based practices that can be of use to public relations practitioners and health care professionals working to draw attention to important factors that are not being addressed in either public or policy conversations related to this issue. We examine newspaper coverage in 32 newspapers from 1997 to 2006 to determine which strategies to address college binge drinking are being covered and which of those are evidence-based and implemented by colleges. The mix of individual versus environmental strategies was examined based on Social Cognitive ...

Cooperation Before Contract: The Law And Policy Of Expenses Incurred During Negotiations In Comparative Perspective, Luigi Russi Oct 2009

Cooperation Before Contract: The Law And Policy Of Expenses Incurred During Negotiations In Comparative Perspective, Luigi Russi

Luigi Russi

Pending negotiations for a contract, one party may begin to incur expenses in fulfilment of the proposed economic operation in anticipation of the finalisation of a formal contract, which is a common practice in many settings, from building and lease contracts to contracts for services in general. This book, therefore, focuses on controversies that may arise when an expected contract collapses after one party withdraws from negotiations, with an ensuing attempt to determine what liability, if any, the withdrawing party should face regarding expenses incurred by the other. The laws of England and Italy, along with several non-legislative codifications – including ...

Inequitable Jeopardy: Exploring The Criminality And Culpability Of Child Sex Trafficking Victims, Joan A. Reid, Shayne Jones Oct 2009

Inequitable Jeopardy: Exploring The Criminality And Culpability Of Child Sex Trafficking Victims, Joan A. Reid, Shayne Jones

Joan A Reid, Ph.D.

While the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and its reauthorizations in 2003, 2005, 2008 safeguard all prostituted minors under the age of 18 as vulnerable victims of child sex trafficking unable to legally consent to being trafficked, local systems continue to treat U.S. minors as criminals. In such instances, the prostitution of a minor is categorized as a public nuisance crime by local law enforcement and juvenile justice agencies and the minor is arrested and adjudicated on prostitution charges. A review of the historical, neurological, and developmental vulnerabilities typical of child sex trafficking victims entrapped by sex traffickers ...


Homeland Calling? Political And Social Connectivity Across Borders, Roger D. Waldinger, Nelson Lim Oct 2009

Homeland Calling? Political And Social Connectivity Across Borders, Roger D. Waldinger, Nelson Lim

Roger D Waldinger

This paper seeks to understand the paradox of large-scale migrant connectivity with the significant others still at home, alongside far more limited engagement with the homeland polity left behind. We argue that, in the expatriate situation, homeland political involvement yields a decidedly unfavourable mix of costs and benefits for most migrants. On the one hand, the costs of expatriate political involvement are higher than the costs that would be entailed when “in country”; on the other hand, the home state can do much less for migrants than the state where they actually live. While the great majority of migrants consequently ...
