Picturing nature : American nineteenth-century zoological illustration by Ann Shelby Blum( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematic zoology and its illustration developed within the social context of divergent definitions of science and art, maintains Blum, and the production of zoological illustration reflected the division of labor and demotion of technique at work in society at large. She examines how zoology, in consolidating its self-definition as a profession, also consolidated certain conventions of pictorial representation for its own use, and how developments in printing exerted pressures on the discipline to adopt new technologies and mediums. Her focus on pictorial convention and disciplinary practice gives historical depth to recent sociological approaches to twentieth-century scientific illustration that challenge the traditional supremacy of theory in science studies
Domestic economies : family, work, and welfare in Mexico City, 1884-1943 by Ann Shelby Blum( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Porfirio Diaz extended his modernization initiative in Mexico to the administration of public welfare, the families and especially the children of the urban poor became a government concern. Reforming the poor through work and by bolstering Mexico's emerging middle class were central to the government's goals of order and progress. But Porfirian policies linking families and work often endangered the children they were supposed to protect, especially when state welfare institutions became involved in the shadowy traffic of child labor. The Mexican Revolution, which followed, generated an unprecedented surge of social reform that was focused on families and accelerated the integration of child protection into public policy, political discourse, and private life." "In ways that transcended the abrupt discontinuities and conflicts of the era, Porfirian officials, revolutionary leaders, and social reformers alike invoked idealized models of the Mexican family as the primary building block of society, making families, especially those of Mexico's working classes, the object of moralizing reform in the name of state construction and national progress. Domestic Economies: Family, Work, and Welfare in Mexico City, 1884-1943 analyzes family practices and class formation in modern Mexico by examining the ways in which family-oriented public policies and institutions affected cross-class interactions as well as relations between parents and children." --Contraportada
Children without parents : law, charity and social practice, Mexico City, 1867-1940 by Ann Shelby Blum( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the experience of poor children outside their families in Mexico City through the lens of public welfare, from the Restored Republic in 1867 through the 1930s, the decade of consolidation of the Mexican Revolution's social program. Analysis of law, organization and clienteles of public orphanages, and community circulation of children provides a complex view of the interactions between family practice and the expanding state sphere
