According to the United States Census Bureau, approximately 5.2 million people in the U.S., or 1.7% of the total population, identified as Native American or Alaska Native in combination with another ethnic identity in
2010. About 2.9 million, or 0.9% of the population, identified themselves only as American Indian or Alaska Native. There are currently around 365 federally recognized tribes in the United States, and most of these have
recognized national home-lands. Almost 80% of those identifying as American Indians or Alaska Natives live outside Native areas, many in large cities.
The government has treaty ...

The Yuma Territorial Prison Cemetery: Cold Cases Of Grave Importance, Michael D. Gillespie Ph.D., Gary S. Foster Dec 2012

The Yuma Territorial Prison Cemetery: Cold Cases Of Grave Importance, Michael D. Gillespie Ph.D., Gary S. Foster

Michael Gillespie

Cemeteries, via grave markers and burial records, usually offer sufficiently scant data to enable a reconstruction of the communities they represent, but cemeteries of total institutions, here, the Yuma Territorial Prison, often yield even less data. With only the variables of ethnicity, sex, prisoner number, date of death, and cause of death, prison conditions were reconstructed for the 111 who died during the prison’s operation (1876-1909), and likely for the other 2,958 who were incarcerated there. First, prisoner number had a high, positive correlation with year of death, indicating that those who died in prison did not live ...


The Economic Deterioration Of The Family: Historical Contingencies Preceding The Great Recession, Michael D. Gillespie Ph.D. Dec 2012

The Economic Deterioration Of The Family: Historical Contingencies Preceding The Great Recession, Michael D. Gillespie Ph.D.

Michael Gillespie

The “Great Recession” in the United States exposed contradictions between the economic wellbeing of families and capital that developed in the decades prior to this latest downturn. Using social structure of accumulation theory, a qualitative institutional analysis, and quantitative time-series models, this article investigates historically-contingent relations between the nature of public assistance, family economic deterioration, and capital accumulation. To sustain the circuit of capital, I argue that the family propped up economic growth first through public cash assistance and then through private expenditures, the latter of which lead to the economic deterioration of families dependent on unprecedented levels of debt.

The Social Construction Of Technology: A Case On Mechanical Watches And The Development Of Escapements, Edson Kieu Dec 2012

The Social Construction Of Technology: A Case On Mechanical Watches And The Development Of Escapements, Edson Kieu

Edson Kieu

Mechanical clocks and watches is a technology that we exceedingly take for granted in today’s modern society. As with all technologies that exist today, it has its humble beginnings. In this essay we will explore the conception of a vital mechanism within watches (or clocks) known as the escapement. In examining the evolution of the escapement, this essay will utilize the conceptual underpinnings of the Social Construction of Technological (SCOT) artifacts as well as the Empirical Programme of Relativism (EPOR) to review the development of the escapement within watches stretching across the 13th century till the first half of ...

Spreading The Word: Service Learning In A Media Literacy Course, Carrie Buchanan, Margaret O. Finucane Ph.D.

Carrie Buchanan

Proliferating media and other digital tools have created a landscape that beckons children and adolescents as consumers and producers. It is imperative that young people develop knowledge and skills to effectively leverage those media for entertainment, learning, and critical analysis. This research focuses on an undergraduate media literacy course that teaches how children and adolescents absorb and interact with different types of
media. The course sent undergraduate students into the surrounding community to teach what they are learning on campus to children in elementary and middle-school programs, either in the classroom or after school. The authors used participant action research ...

The shortage of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is well-documented.
Many efforts address women’s low representation in fields such as computing target high
school girls in an effort to solidify their commitment to these fields before they enter college and create
computing “potential selves.” This paper describes one such effort in the rural South, the Women in
Cyber Security residential camp for girls in Mississippi. Consistent with existing literature, we find
girls are interested in the social relevance of various technological skills and desire hands-on, applied
learning exercises. We also find girls are poorly informed about ...

Family Life Cycle Revisited: Age And Life Course Effects On Church Attendance At “Conventional” And Middle Age, Nehal A. Patel Dec 2012

Family Life Cycle Revisited: Age And Life Course Effects On Church Attendance At “Conventional” And Middle Age, Nehal A. Patel

Nehal A. Patel

We examined the effects of marital status and parenthood on church attendance using panel data from the 1975 and 1992 Wisconsin Longitudinal Study. Consistent with prior research, both cross-sectional and fixed effects ordered logit models indicated that marriage and parenthood were positively associated with church attendance. However, prior research has examined only adults in more “conventional” ages of family formation, and our findings indicated that the effects of parenthood extend into middle age. We also found support for prior notions that divorce/separation has negative effects on church attendance and that this effect is present among adults in their thirties ...
