Re-dressing America's frontier past by Peter Boag( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans have long cherished romantic images of the frontier and its colorful cast of characters, where the cowboys are always rugged and the ladies always fragile. But in this book, Peter Boag opens an extraordinary window onto the real Old West. Delving into countless primary sources and surveying sexological and literary sources, Boag paints a vivid picture of a West where cross-dressing#x14;for both men and women#x14;was pervasive, and where easterners as well as Mexicans and even Indians could redefine their gender and sexual identities. Boag asks, why has this history been forgotten and erased? Citing a cultural moment at the turn of the twentieth century#x14;when the frontier ended, the United States entered the modern era, and homosexuality was created as a category#x14;Boag shows how the American people, and thus the American nation, were bequeathed an unambiguous heterosexual identity. #x13;
Environment and experience : settlement culture in nineteenth-century Oregon by Peter Boag( )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pioneer battling with a hostile environment--whether it be arid land, drought, dust storms, dense forests, or harsh winters--is a staple of western American history. In this work, Peter Boag takes issue with the image of the settler against the frontier, arguing that settlers viewed their new surroundings positively and attempted to create communities in harmony with the landscape. Using Oregon's Calapooia Valley as a case study, Boag presents a history of both land and people that shows the process of change as settlers populated the land and turned it to their own uses. By combining local sources, ranging from letters and diaries to early maps and local histories, and drawing upon the methods of geography, natural history, and literary analysis, Boag has created a grass-roots portrait of a frontier community, analyzing the connections among environmental, cultural, and social changes in ways that illuminate the frontier experience throughout the American west. --From publisher's description

The power of political chatter : Settler colonialism and the construction of race, gender, and citizenship in Oregon by Jacki Hedlund Tyler( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transformation of Oregon and its relationship with the United States demonstrate how the construction of these Oregon laws, and the arguments surrounding their construction, reified and institutionalized legal definitions and national perceptions of race, gender, and citizenship in the United States on the eve of the Civil War. Oregon's exclusionary laws either served as a supportive continuation of racial and gender restriction to specific rights, or established a legal precedent for such restrictions, evidenced in the development of legislation throughout the remainder of the century. Additionally, Oregon's experience provides an American example of settler colonialism and demonstrates how a settler colony can impact an empire

Denver's mountain playground: The Denver Mountain Parks, the City Beautiful, and the rise of modern wilderness recreation in Colorado, 1900--1940 by Wendy Rex-Atzet( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the Denver Mountain Parks exposes the profound connections between city life and scenic preservation, outdoor recreation, and wilderness appreciation during the early twentieth century. By examining the cultural roots of Denver's mountain parks this study links the conservation and preservation movements of the Progressive Era to specifically urban concerns. Denver's history highlights the central role that urban reform, urban planning, and municipal politics played in shaping the scenic natural landscape parks of these years. Denver developed its mountain parks at a time of growing federal commitment to resource conservation and the national parks. In Denver, however, these trends were less significant in conceptualizing the mountain parks than the City Beautiful movement. In 1912 a coalition of Denver's commercial interests persuaded voters to fund municipal development of extra-urban mountain parks. Building upon the popularity of exiting Mayor Robert Speer's urban beautification program, these advocates extended City Beautiful thinking beyond the bounds of the city proper, applying urban park geographies and ideologies to justify the distant mountain parks and join them to the city. These ideas included the pursuit of tourism, thereby linking City Beautiful thought with the See America First idea and the coincident boom in national tourism. Denver commissioned a mountain park plan from Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., which provided a template for preserving vast tracts of essentially wild mountain land. Over time, however, Denver's park planners moved away from Olmsted's large tracts toward an urban geography of smaller parks. The city created a legal framework that extended its political power into the mountain hinterland, giving Denver the right to buy or condemn land outside its corporate limits, and to develop, police, and manage its mountain parks. Denver developed a range of attractions and amenities in the mountain parks including a game preserve, rustic lodges, and Buffalo Bill's grave that connected the mountain landscapes with the popular symbolism of the frontier. These images were joined with a wealth of promotional literature that celebrated modernity, especially the technologies that paved the way for new forms of outdoor recreation in nature made accessible by road and car

Functional characterisation of the RIO kinase family by Tasha K Mendes( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The riok family of atypical protein kinases are evolutionary conserved; however their precisefunctions remain unknown. riok-1 and riok-2 exist in all eukaryotes and have predicted roles in cell cycle regulation and rRNA biogenesis, while riok-3 exists exclusively in metazoans withlittle known about its function. The riok family were examined in the C. elegans model system. Expression of riok-1, -2, -3 was highest in the first larval stage, consistent with the riok-1 andriok-2 deletion mutants early larval arrest phenotype. To investigate the tissue and developmental expression of RIOK in vivo, GFP tagged transgenic animals were created. RIOK-1 was expressed in a range of different tissues, including the spermatheca, intestinal cells and a subset of neurons. RIOK-2 displayed expression in the pharynx, while riok-3 animals revealed expression in a small subset of neuron. RNAi was used to further analysis riok members, as it bypassed the genetic mutant arrest stage. Our data identified a new novel role for riok-l in oogenesis. Interestingly, knockdown of riok-1 in hermaphrodite animals results in 100% sterility, while males produce viable/functional sperm. Adult riok-1 (RNAi) hermaphrodite gonads are smaller in size and display endomitotic oocytes, where large DNA aggregates were observed. Interestingly, riok-1 knockdown resulted in increased MAP kinase activation in gonads, which has previously been shown to induce endomitotic oocyte formation. To assess the somatic vs. gonad contribution towards the riok-1 (RNAi) defect, riok-1 was knocked down in a genetic background where gonad RNAi only occurs. A major impact on the reproductive capacity of these animals was still apparent, suggesting riok-1 is primarily a germ cell mediated defect. Therefore, riok-1 and riok-2 are required for normal development, with riok-1 possessing a major function in oogenesis. Our data suggests that riok-1 plays a role in meiosis and has an important cell cycle regulator role; however a mechanistic understanding remains to be elucidated
Functional analysis of the TRIM-NHL family protein, NHL-2, in the germline of Caenorhabditis elegans by Gregory Mark Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

TRIM-NHL family proteins are highly conserved and regulate various cellular processes by functioning as co-factors of the micro RNA pathway (miRNA), or as E3 ubiquitin ligases. A member of this family, NHL-2, has previously been shown to function as a miRNA co-factor in the somatic tissues of Caenorhabditis elegans. Additionally, NHL-2 is highly expressed in germ cells, although its function in this tissue is unknown. Therefore, this study used a combination of genome-wide RNAi screening, deep-sequencing and proteomics to explore the role of NHL-2 and its contribution to germline function. Genome-wide RNAi screening identified 42 genes that gave strong synthetic phenotypes when knocked down in nhl-2 null mutants. This included members of the WAGO and CSR-1 small 22G RNA pathways, including drh-3, ekl-1 and cde-1. Knockdown of these genes in nhl-2 null mutants leads to abnormal chromosomal morphology, reduced brood size and highly penetrant embryonic lethality. In addition to this, nhl-2 is required for the downregulation of WAGO-1 22G RNA targets and deep-sequencing of nhl-2 null mutants shows decreased levels of CSR-1 and WAGO-1 small 22G RNAs. Levels of miRNAs and 21U RNAs appear unchanged in nhl-2 null mutants, suggesting that nhl-2 is specifically required for 22G RNA biogenesis or stability. Furthermore, NHL-2 associates with CSR-1 as well as the ubiquitin machinery, but absence of nhl-2 does not alter CSR-1 levels, suggesting that this interaction is not associated with CSR-1 turnover. Collectively, this study suggests that NHL-2 maintains germline function by functioning as a co-factor of the WAGO and CSR-1 small RNA pathways

Thomas Moran and the Snake River Region : an inquiry into the environmental values of a landscape painter by Peter Boag( Recording )

1 edition published in 1994 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Side 1. Boag reflects on the work of the great landscape artist, Thomas Moran, and its role in American West environmental history. Although Moran's art may have led to the rise of preservation and the formation of national parks, he also saw many areas as valuable for resource development and unworthy of preservation. Side 2. Neel stresses the popular image of Yellowstone as a tourist attraction and discusses the connection between consumption, preservation and tourism
