Faulkner and humor by Doreen Fowler( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the essays in this volume explore various aspects of Faulkner's rich and inexhaustible comic art, they all hold in common one axiom: that William Faulkner, the recognized genius of tragic art, is a master of comic forms as well and, further, that neither mode, tragic or comic, is ever very far from the other in Faulkner's world. James Cox and Wiliam Claxon reassert a familiar but helpful reminder of the outlandish humor in Jason Compson's world. The comic world of As I Lay Dying, Light in August, and Go Down, Moses is treated variously as irony of miscommunicaton, as framing device for character portrayal, and as comedy of incongruity--three qualities that offer new insights about these richly funny works.

Faulkner and psychology by Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characteristically, William Faulkner minimized his familiarity with the theories of psychology that were current during the years of his apprenticeship as a writer, especially those of Freud. Yet, Faulkner's works prove to be a trove for psychological study. These original papers from the annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, held in 1991 at the University of Mississippi, vary widely in their approaches to recent psychological speculation about Faulkner's texts. In recent years psychological analysis of literature has shifted largely from investigation of a writer's life to a focus on the work itself. Whether applying the theories of Freud and Lacan, drawing upon theoretical work in women's studies and men's studies, or emphasizing the rigid determinacy of psychological pressure, the essays included in this collection show Faulkner's works to be unquestionably rich in psychological materials

Proceedings of a conference on sustainability of wetlands and water resources : how well can riverine wetlands continue to support society into the 21st century? : Oxford, Mississippi, May 23-25, 2000 by Marjorie Holland( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conference focused on recent work in freshwater wetlands [both natural and constructed] with a view toward understanding wetland processes in a watershed context. Since humans have played important roles in watershed dynamics for years, attention was given to the human dimensions of wetland and watershed uses. Contributed sessions were organized on: biogeochemical cycling in wetlands; human health issues related to water; wetland restoration and reforestation; the role of wetlands in agricultural systems; wetlands and USA environmental law; chemical ecology and natural products from wetlands; water and wetlands in science education; and regional water strategies

Sediment transport modeling : proceedings of the international symposium by International Symposium on Sediment Transport Modeling( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the Proceedings of the International Symposium on Sediment Transport Modeling, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, August 1989. It reviews the state of the art and presents the latest findings in sedimentation research. These findings are the result of the use of mathematical, numerical or physical models, and field observation. They cover such topics as sedimentation in lake, reservoir, river, estuary and coastal waters; scouring and deposition; channel migration; blank erosion and stability; and, nonequilibrium transport. This collection of papers provides the civil engineer with a review of the field and guidelines to future developments
Archaeological site stabilization in the Tennessee River Valley - phase III by Patricia Marie Fay( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several apparently appropriate preservation techniques were identified in early 1983 and suitable areas were sought for the installation of those technologies. Tennessee Valley Authority owned and managed land extends through the majority of the Tennessee River system, and as a result, a wide variety of site forms (middens, mounds, etc.) and an equally diverse number of environmental microniches were available for consideration during the planning phase of this project. Since the entire project was viewed as experimental, the need for caution in dealing with sites were recognized as was the need to protect the resource from any detrimental effects of the stabilization techniques that were to be tested

The adult scale of parental attachment-short form : item selection, factor structure, and psychometric properties by Anthony A Michael( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine if an abbreviated version of the Adult Scale of Parental Attachment (ASPA; Snow, Sullivan, Martin, & Helm, 2005) could be developed with an emphasis on the instrument's item selection, factor structure, and psychometric properties. The ASPA, building upon attachment theory, is a self-report measure that assesses individuals' patterns of relating based on their relationships with both mother and father figures in childhood. Utilizing the conceptual underpinnings of Classical Test Theory and factor analysis, a 40-item version of the ASPA (called the ASPA-SF) was created from 1,075 archived responses through a test construction and test tryout. Building upon this procedure, the substantiation of the ASPA-SF was established through confirmatory factor analysis and validity to the Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI; Parker, Tupling, & Brown, 1979) with a separate group of 250 archived responses. Lastly, the theory of the instrument was tested on a population of 222 prison participants to evaluate the factor structure and psychometric properties. While the reliability of the instrument was maintained, the validity of the ASPA-SF could not be verified in working with a prison population. Due to the 84-item length of the original ASPA, the study was significant as an abbreviated version of the ASPA has the potential to save time for both the participant and administrator, and contribute to counseling research literature on patterns of relating
The influences of gender and race on the attachment styles within a criminal population by M. Morgan Litchfield Bryant( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study utilizes tenets of attachment theory to examine how patterns of relating to parental figures vary according to the race and gender of subjects residing in a correctional facility. The study can perhaps influence rehabilitation services within the prison system and modify anti-recidivism programs attended by individuals released from a correctional facility. Second year doctoral students originally collected the data. The participants in the study were given the Adult Scale of Parental Attachment (ASPA) and a general questionnaire in an effort to gather information regarding race, gender, and patterns of relating. The participants were above the age of 18, have been convicted of a crime, and are currently serving time in a prison for that crime. Informed consent forms were attached to the testing material, and issues of confidentiality were addressed verbally. A series of MANOVAs were run to analyze the data that was gathered on the participants. It was found that the Mother Dependent, Father Dependent, and Father Safe variables were significant when looking at the gender of a prison inmate. Further investigation found that the Dependent patterns of relating are lower in males when compared to their female counterparts, and lower for the prison population as a whole when compared to the general population. When investigating the Father Safe subscale of the ASPA, it was found that males report less safety in the relationship with the father figure than the females, and that the prison population perceived a less safe relationship with the father than the general population. The Mother Parentified variable showed significance when looking at the race of a prison inmate. The Non-White participants displayed a higher degree of parentified feelings when compared to the White/Caucasian group. The prison population showed a higher degree of parentification when compared to the general population. The present study indicates that patterns of relating to the mother and father figure tend to differ according to the race and gender of the inmate surveyed. The study also suggests a need for continued research within the prison population concerning specific ways patterns of relating are differentiated by gender and race
Sex-related alcohol expectancies and perceptions of sexual assault : recognition response latency and blame attribution by Walter Thomas Rueff( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcohol use has often been linked with sexual violence. Pumphrey-Gordon and Gross (2007) note that "among the numerous factors that have been associated with the occurrence of sexual assault, the use of alcohol is the most reliable" (p. 476). Novel autonomy places undergraduates at a nexus alcohol use and sexual experiences, as well as the potential negative consequences of both. This confluence of factors contributes to proportionally higher rates of risky sexual behaviors and sexual assaults among undergraduates. Alcohol expectancies, beliefs about the outcomes and consequence of drinking alcohol, have been shown to influence drinking behaviors, which have, in turn, been linked with higher rates of sexual activity and an increased incidence of sexual assault. (Goldman & Roehrich, 1991; Cooper, Frone, Russell, & Mudar, 1995). Individuals' endorsements of sex-related alcohol expectancies (SRAE) have also been demonstrated to be predictive of various potentially detrimental behaviors such as increased drinking, and risky sexual behaviors. However, research regarding the role of SRAE in people's perceptions of sexual violence as third-party observers is scarce. The purpose of this present investigation is to build upon extant sexual assault literature related to alcohol consumption, AE, SRAE, and perceptions of sexual violence, with a particular emphasis on response latency (how quickly individuals are able to recognize assaultive behavior) and victim blame attribution. This study evaluated the relationship between AE, SRAE, and perceptions of sexual assault using an audio vignette depicting an acquaintance rape (Marx & Gross, 1995). Measures assessing demographic factors, alcohol consumption patterns, AE, and SRAE were employed. Participants listened to the audio vignette depicting a sexual assault, which was prefaced as either involving alcohol or not involving alcohol, and were instructed to indicate when during the vignette the encounter had become inappropriate. They subsequently completed measures assessing blame attribution related to the vignette. It was expected that AE would account for unique variance in predicting response latency and victim blame attribution, after controlling for demographic factors, alcohol context, and drinking habits. It was also expected that SRAE would account for unique variance in response latency and victim blaming after all factors and AE were controlled for. These hypotheses were tested using hierarchical multiple regression analyses for response latency and victim blame models using the following steps: demographic factors (step 1), drinking habits (DDQ; step 2), alcohol context (step 3), AE (AEQ; step 4), and SRAE scores (AEQ SRAE subscale; step 5). Findings indicate that, for response latency, AE was the only variable which was a unique predictor. For victim blame, demographic variables, alcohol context, and AE were all identified as unique predictors. SRAE were not found to account for unique variance in either model. Implications of findings are discussed
