The politics of dignity : social Christianity and the making of global Los Angeles by Sean Thomas Dempsey( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This politics of dignity, forged at this vital intersection between postwar social Christianity and the globalizing metropolis of Los Angeles had several characteristics which affected the political and social trajectory of the city and which constitute the heart of this project. First, it created the possibilities for interdenominational and interreligious cooperation on a host urban issues, in part because of postwar theological commitments to interreligious dialogue, ecumenism, and social justice. Second, it was inherently devolutionary, advocating for greater community empowerment and organizing at the grassroots level. Third, it grappled with the increasing pluralism and diversity of Los Angeles by relying on a global and inclusive vision of human community. Fourth, it sought to advance a broad agenda of racial liberalism and economic justice, but in ways that departed significantly from secular counterparts. Lastly, it was internationalist in orientation and increasingly transnational in practice, as post-1965 immigration transformed the religious, racial, and ethnic demographics of Los Angeles. Like Los Angeles itself, the politics of dignity was complex, contradictory and diffuse, but succeeded in offering a moral vision for a city undergoing rapid social change
"Lest they perish" : the Armenian genocide and the making of modern humanitarian media in the U.S., 1915-1925 by Jaffa L Panken( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between celebrity spokesmen and late night informercials, international humanitarian aid organizations use multiple media strategies to generate public interest in their programs. Though this humanitarian media has seemingly proliferated in the past thirty years, these publicity campaigns are no recent phenomenon but one that emerged from the World War I era. "Lest They Perish" is a case study of the modernization of international humanitarian media in the U.S. during and after the Armenian genocide from 1915 to 1925. This study concerns the Near East Relief, an international humanitarian organization that raised and contributed over $100,000,000 in aid to the Armenians during these years of violence. As war raged throughout Europe and Western Asia, American governmental propagandists kept the public invested in the action overseas. Private philanthropies were using similar techniques aimed at enveloping prospective donors in "whirlwind campaigns" to raise funds. The Near East Relief was among the earliest philanthropic organizations to undertake these publicity blitzes. After Armistice, the NER established relief operations that dispensed humanitarian services in cities throughout Asia Minor. It is in this latter period that the media appeal for humanitarian aid for witnessing publics solidified into a consumer-centered model of advertising. From the NER's earliest fundraisers, images were crucial tools that bridged the distance between the spectators-the prospective donors--and the sufferers. Images of starving children were used to power philanthropic giving. Rather than focus on the reception of these images, the project is concerned with the production of this media and vehicles for its message. This perspective reveals considerable overlap between advocacy campaigns and the actual relief work. The dissertation finally reflects on the emerging role of private enterprise in sponsoring humanitarian relief. By this point, the rise of public relations had turned donors into consumers and Armenians into their objects of pity
Mexican migrants and the rise of the deportation regime, 1942-2014 by Adam S. I Goodman( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation traces the rise of the deportation regime in the United States from 1942 to the present. It reveals that the origins of the regime are inextricably intertwined with the history of Mexican migration. It uses a diverse array of English- and Spanish-language archival sources from the United States and Mexico, more than twenty oral histories, and materials obtained through the Freedom of Information Act to show how deportation has changed--qualitatively and quantitatively--over the last seventy-two years. This dissertation sheds light on deportation's magnitude, both past and present. It interrogates the inaccurate and inconsistent ways that scholars, journalists, and government agencies have defined deportation and puts forth a definition that incorporates the variety of methods immigration authorities have employed to effect expulsions--from formal deportations and "voluntary" departures to scare tactic-driven publicity campaigns meant to encourage people to "self-deport." This, in turn, forces us to reassess our understanding of immigration policy and "the immigrant experience" in US history. This dissertation also offers a fine-grained social history of deportation, showing how individuals, communities, and organizations on both sides of the border shaped--and were shaped by--US and Mexican state policies. It argues that we must go beyond the gendered history that paints migrants and deportees as one-dimensional, temporary male laborers, and instead examine deportation's impact on men, women, and children who belonged to familial, local, national, and transnational networks. An analysis of the political economy of deportation reveals that, in some cases, expulsion resulted not only from negotiations between two states, but also from interpenetrating and corrupt public-private relations. This dissertation shows how deportation and the possibility of being deported became a quotidian part of Mexican migrants' lives. It shows how immigration raids created ever-present internal borders, and it examines how migrants and activists took to the streets and the courts in response. Finally, it lays bare the connection between the deportation regime's punitive turn and the growth of the carceral state in recent decades
Commandeering empires: Egypt, Tripoli, and Tunis in the age of revolution, 1774-1835 by Mukaram Hhana( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation interrogates our conceptualizations of space, our understanding of the topographical borders of regions, and our historiographical depiction of the margins between imperial administration and local autonomy the Ottoman Maghreb. It does so by juxtaposing the history of corsairs, Bedouins, desert caravans and empires in turn-of-the-nineteenth-century North Africa. Further, it examines the horizontal connections among the North African provinces and their corresponding systems of governance. The central premise of this dissertation is that one cannot fully understand the policy and affairs of turn of the nineteenth century Egypt, or the Porte, without a firm grasp on the historical context of neighboring Ottoman Tripoli and Tunis
"In the age of freedom, in the name of justice" : slaves, slaveholders, and the state in the late Ottoman Empire and early Turkish Republic, 1857-1933 by Ceyda Karamürsel( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation concerns itself with the practice of slavery in the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic in the second half of the nineteenth and early decades of the twentieth centuries. It places slavery at the intersection of the new liberal political order that began to form in the mid-1850s, the expulsion of the Caucasian peoples and their subsequent transplantation in the Ottoman Empire, and the international anti-slavery law that was taking shape simultaneously. It examines the social and legal (trans)formations at this particular juncture, traces the legal making and perpetuation of "Circassianness" as an "enslavable" ethnic category, and consequently argues that slavery bore a key significance in defining what citizenship came to mean in the Ottoman Empire and Turkish Republic. Ottoman slavery comprised both male and female slaves, employed respectively for agricultural work in rural areas and for domestic and sexual services in the large urban centers of the empire. Their social destinies were markedly different from each other throughout the long course of the practice, but especially so in the "age of freedom," which was laden, above all, with the Ottoman state's promise of equality before the law. Male slaves demanded their "equality" in conspicuous ways by bringing lawsuits against their owners or through occasional armed resistance. Female slaves, on the other hand, whose flow towards the elite households of Istanbul did not cease at least until the second decade of the twentieth century, developed other forms of relationships both with their owners and slavery as a practice. Clinging on to the slave trade and at times wielding it as a weapon, they continued building extensive patronage networks across the empire, although their political participation became marginalized within an increasingly gendered political community, as the nineteenth century drew near its end. Based on slave petitions, slaveholding elites' correspondences, police interrogations, legal records, and parliamentary minutes, this dissertation probes the entangled histories of slave emancipation and citizenship in the Ottoman Empire and Turkish Republic. Without dismissing its distinctive features, such as the multiple legal systems that governed it or the lack of its abolition, my aim is to place the Ottoman practice of slavery in its larger political context, not only within the Ottoman Empire but also the entire globe, and dismantle the categories of Islam and nationalism, which respectively essentializes Ottoman slavery and overcodes citizenship, along the way
