Mountain sisters : from convent to community in Appalachia by Helen Matthews Lewis( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mountain Sisters: From Convent to Community in Appalachia chronicles the efforts of the Glenmary Sisters to overcome the stifling rules of the Catholic Church and work for social change with struggling mountain communities. The sisters adopted new freedoms encouraged by the Second Vatican Council in 1962, challenging the Church hierarchy on matters of etiquette and behavior. Their most visible move toward independence was the exchange of their long, dark habit for shorter, more modern dress. The Church resisted these changes, however, and after several failed attempts to reconcile this and other differences, seventy sisters took dramatic action and left the order in 1967. As one sister put it, they felt called to "walk on water."" "Monica Appleby, a former Glenmary Sister and the first president of FOCIS, joins Appalachian sociologist and activist Helen Lewis to reveal the largely untold story of the women who exchanged tradition for feminism and life in the Church for the support of each other. Based on twelve years of research and a wealth of personal experience and oral history, Mountain Sisters is an account of the history of American Catholicism, the war on poverty, and the influence of the turbulent 1960s on the cultural and religious communities of Appalachia."--BOOK JACKET
Colonialism in modern America : the Appalachian case by Helen Matthews Lewis( )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book illustrate a conceptual model for analyzing the social and economic problems of the Appalachian region. The model is variously called Colonialism, Internal Colonialism, Exploitation, or External Oppression. It highlights the process through which dominant outside industrial interests establish control, exploit the region, and maintain their domination and subjugation of the region. Appalachia is an example of colonial domination by outside interests. Its history demonstrates the concerted efforts of the exploiters to label their work as progress and to blame problems they caused on the ignorance or deficiencies of the Appalachian people. This anthology: (1) explains the Colonial Model and its application to the study of Appalachian history and experience; (2) describes the acquisition of resources by outside influences; (3) documents the ways in which outside interests sought to establish their enterprises through political corruption and cultural discrediting of opposition; (4) shows how the region has become vulnerable to the cultural and economic definitions, interests, and whims of the larger society; and (5) extends and improves the Colonial Model for scholarly analysis leading to proposals for corrective social action. Essays contain text notes and references. (All)

"Shows the development and effect of stereotypes as technological change collides with tradition in the Southern mountains. The film traces the evolution of the "hillbilly" image through Hollywood films, network news and entertainment shows, dramatic renderings of popular literature, and interviews with contemporary Appalachians to demonstrate how stereotypes are created, reinforced, and often used to rationalize exploitation."--Container
