Interrupting heteronormativity by The Graduate School of Syracuse University( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Syracuse universiteit in de Verenigde Staten voert diversiteit hoog in haar beleidsvaandel. Al bij haar ontstaan heeft de universiteit er een punt van gemaakt om open te staan voor alle studenten, ongeacht hun afkomst. Zo behaalde de eerste zwarte vrouwelijke arts hier haar diploma. Terwijl in het verleden veel aandacht ging naar thema's als etniciteit en racisme, zijn er recent gender en seksuele oriëntatie als aandachtspunten bijgekomen. In deze publikatie staan de holebi-studenten centraal. Wil de universiteit haar claim waarmaken dat ze al haar studenten een diverse en veilige leeromgeving wil bieden, dan is het zaak om deze groep studenten niet te vergeten. De auteurs willen vooral de problemen die deze jongeren in het dagelijks leven ervaren zichtbaar maken

Spinoza's philosophy of divine order by Ben Stahlberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation argues that Baruch de Spinoza's conception of God plays a decisive, and often unappreciated, role in his conceptions of politics and religion. While Spinoza is often interpreted as an early secular or liberal thinker, this work argues that such interpretations neglect the senses of order and authority that are at the heart of Spinoza's idea of God. For Spinoza, God is an organized and directed totality of all that exists. Moreover, for Spinoza, God is entirely immanent to this totality, to such an extent that all things are fundamentally of God. When we fully appreciate the extent to which God permeates and orders every aspect of our reality, the full sense of Spinoza's theories of tolerance and the social contract come into view, for rather than assuming that the human beings involved in political relationships are independent, autonomous individuals, we can see that for Spinoza they are parts of a larger whole who are subject to distinct natural laws. Spinoza maintains that such laws manifest themselves equally and identically in the seemingly distinct realms of religion and politics. In this respect, then, Spinoza's theories of religion and biblical interpretation are not properly secular in character but rather blur the standard boundary between the religious and the political, as they try to recognize and codify the inviolable laws of nature--or God
Promoting research ethics training understandings of community, partnership, virtue and diversity by Dianne Quigley( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dissertation, "Promoting Research Ethics Training: Understandings of Community, Partnership, Virtue and Diversity," I argue for expanding traditional research ethics training beyond a sole focus on the individual for human subjects protections to protections and beneficence for the geographic community as a subject of research. Health and environmental researchers who conduct interventions in geographic communities require new ethics training on community-based engagement and participatory research approaches. These new approaches are being implemented to overcome past research experiences that produced too few benefits for many geographic communities with multiple disparity conditions and multiracial groups. Researchers now need to engage community members in partnerships; learn about local contextual conditions and subjective meanings of the community of study; and conduct cultural appropriate interventions with diverse groups. I argue for expanded training on meanings of community, on ethical theories that can support community-based partnerships and on intercultural models of community research to promote more respect with diverse cultural groups. I demonstrate the value of Religious Studies training, its texts and methods for conducting this expanded ethics training. With an investigation of the varied meanings of community associated with health and environmental interventions, researchers can be more prepared for engaging community members for collaborative research designs and methods and for producing beneficent outcomes. A need for building community solidarity and capacities is dramatic in geographic communities with disadvantaged conditions. Understandings of moral solidarities, the movements of robust socialities and creative interpersonal relationships are extremely useful to the conduct of participatory research approaches. More integration of biomedical research principles in research reports of community-based studies can advance the acceptance of partnership approaches with research ethics committees and academic research disciplines. A development of virtue training and analyses in community-based approaches is also proposed. The design and conduct of intercultural or interworld research models can be developed with more study on culturally-based meanings of community and knowledge values. New case studies on culturally diverse research methods demonstrate new creative arrangements in participatory research. I urge Religious Studies scholars to offer more expertise to all these ethical dimensions of community-based approaches to health and environmental research

Clouds, graphs, and maps : distant reading and disciplinary imagination by Derek Norton Mueller( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Clouds, Graphs, and Maps: Distant Reading and Disciplinary Imagination" examines recent efforts by scholars in rhetoric and composition to account for patterns and trends indicative of the discipline's maturation. Many of these "discipliniographic" appraisals resort, on the one hand, to anecdotal, experience-based accounts or, on the other hand, to methods too laborious to reproduce. Within this project, however, I identify and apply new methods that expand our means of apprehending patterns latent in the growing mass of disciplinary materials. Influenced by the work of Franco Moretti, this dissertation theorizes and also carries out variations of a methodology he calls "distant reading," which seeks to mine and aggregate data from large collections of texts to then build experimental models for engaging with non-obvious relationships. After establishing the exigency of this work for the field of rhetoric and composition and after establishing a conceptual groundwork for these methods, this dissertation presents three types of models--tag clouds, graphs, and maps--designed as a means to examine scholarship published in "College Composition and Communication" from 1987 to 2006. I contend that these models deepen and also complicate existing accounts of the discipline. By shedding light on large-scale patterns, the models also implicitly promote what I describe as a network sense of the field, which is crucial both for introducing newcomers to the shifting terrain of disciplinary knowledge and for sustaining a generalist's wherewithal in the midst of a growing archive of increasingly specialized scholarship. As a consequence of distant reading methods, network sense makes it possible for compositionists both to specialize in their work and also to keep abreast of developments in the field at the periphery of their narrow areas of teaching and research.

A study of degenerate elliptic partial differential equations by Abdulsalam Almannaei( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this thesis, two types of second order elliptic partial differential equations will be studied. The first type is the following equation Ax, y6 2u6x2+2B x, y62u 6x6y+Cx, y 62u6y2 =0 for a function u of Sobolev class W2,2loc W. Here A, B and C are measurable functions on O with A> 0, C> 0 and AC - Bø> 0 a.e. Our main result will be that u is of class C1(O) provided that A+C2 AC-B2 is locally integrable on O. The second equation we will study is the non-homogeneous p-harmonic equation div & vbm0;1u & vbm0;p-2 1u=divf for a function u?W1,p & Re;n, where f?W1,q & Re;n with 1p+1q=1. Our main result is the following: THEOREM. Let u be a non-homogeneous p-harmonic function on & Re;n of class W1,p & Re; n, where 1 <p = 2. If gx=1u xp-2 21ux, then g?W1,2 & parl0; & Re;n, & Re;n & parr0; and the following uniform estimate holds Dg L2=C p, n f2-p2p-2 Lq Df Lq. Among other applications, this theorem will be used to establish higher integrability of?u

Geochemical evolution of the volcanic rocks in Puerto Rico by Johannes Hendrikus Schellekens( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puerto Rico, in the Greater Antilles, is a complex arc terrane with a basement of Late Jurassic to Early Tertiary volcanic, volcaniclastic, and sedimentary rocks, intruded by felsic plutonic rocks, that is overlain by Oligocene and younger sedimentary rocks and sediments. This investigation deals with the geochemical evolution of the volcanic rocks. Flow rocks of all formations distinguished were sampled and analyzed for major, trace, and rare earth elements. Volcano-Stratigraphic Associations (VSA's) were defined as packets of volcanic and associated sedimentary rocks in which the age of the volcanic rocks was determined based on the fossil ages of the associated rocks. The basement rocks are divided into the Southwestern, Central, and Northeast Igneous Provinces (SIP, CIP, NIP). Late Jurassic cherts and associated amphibolites of the Bermeja Complex (SIP) are considered to represent Pacific ocean floor fragments, whereas Early Cretaceous greenstones and metagabbros of the Bermeja Complex represent early island-arc products. The latter, with the Pre-Robles VSA (CIP) and the Daguao-Figuera VSA (NIP), formed part of an island-arc above the northward subducting Pacific Ocean floor. The SIP represents the frontal part of the arc, characterized by melange and fore-arc basin, the CIP the summit basin, and the NIP the trailing part. Magmas have a tholeiitic composition interpreted as generated through partial melting of the mantle wedge enriched by dehydration fluids. Late Cretaceous magmas show evidence for the involvement of pelagic oozes and continental material in concordance with the subduction of older oceanic crust and the approach of South America. With the attempted subduction of the buoyant oceanic platform at the end of the Cretaceous, subduction flipped. The chemistry of the volcanic rocks in the SIP confirms that the fore-arc basin changed into a back-arc basin during the Maastrichtian. Magmas show no evidence for the involvement of continentally derived material, but chemical characteristics suggest involvement of pelagic oozes in concordance with the scenario of subduction of old (proto-Caribbean) ocean floor. Early Tertiary magmas show evidence for both incorporation of pelagic oozes and continentally derived material resulting from subduction of ocean floor close to the North American continent and the Bahamas
Conditions that support the implementation of e-government through the Digital Towpath Project : an exploratory study by Deborah J Tyksinski( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the social environmental conditions perceived by local government representatives as relatively important for their implementation of e-government using the Digital Towpath Project (dtp) content management system, referred to as "websites". The survey population included individuals who administered the municipal websites for their towns and villages between 2000 and 2007. Based on Rogers' (1962/1995) framework for the implementation of innovations by organizations, the towns and villages were categorized by the degree to which they integrated the websites into their office routine, called "stage of implementation" ("soi") and also by the degree to which their websites were used, called "degree of use" (dou). Ely's (1999) Eight Conditions framework was used to inform the survey design and to analyze the responses. Ely's conditions include: "dissatisfaction with status quo", "knowledge and skills", "resources", "time", "rewards and incentives", "participation in decision making", "commitment" and "leadership". These conditions had been tested in previous studies, particularly in the k-12 environment with a focus on the adoption and implementation behavior of school teachers. (Bauder, 1993; Ravitz, 1999; Surry, Ely, Reiser, & Dempsey, 2002; Surry & Ensminger; Surry, Porter and Wright, 2004; Ensminger & Surry, 2008) This study investigated which, if any, of Ely's conditions were reported as relatively more important for implementation of local e-government and the degree to which they were associated with "stage of implementation" or "degree of use". Based on the results of this survey, municipal adopters of e-government who choose to fully implement their websites through the Digital Towpath Project should consider encouraging their web administrators to attend training sessions, conferences and other forms of "knowledge and skills" enhancement; and to consider these activities strategically important budget items.
