SOUP AT THE DISTINGUISHED TABLE IN MEXICO CITY, 1830-1920 by Nanosh Lucas( )

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

This thesis uses soup discourse as a vehicle to explore dimensions of class and hierarchies of taste in Mexican cookbooks and newspapers from 1830-1920. It contrasts soups with classic European roots, such as sopa de pan (bread soup), with New World soups, such as sopa de tortilla (tortilla soup) and chilaquiles (toasted tortillas in a soupy sauce made from chiles). I adopt a multi-disciplinary approach, combining quantitative methods in the digital humanities with qualitative techniques in history and literature. To produce this analysis, I draw from Pierre Bourdieu's work on distinction and social capital, Max Weber's ideas about modernization and rationalization, and Charles Tilly's notions of categorical inequality. Results demonstrate that soup plays a part in a complex drama of inclusion and exclusion as people socially construct themselves in print and culinary practice. Elites attempted to define respectable soups by what ingredients they used, and how they prepared, served, and consumed soup. Yet, at the same time, certain soups seemed to defy hierarchical categorization, and that is where this story begins
NOT ANOTHER FISHING TALE : LAKE ERIE'S STORY OF EUTROPHICATION, REMEDIATION, AND THE CURRENT STRUGGLE FOR LIFE by Kyle Penzinski( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lake Erie. One of the most influential bodies of water in The United States is dying. It has a history of struggle, and it continues this very day. Whether the failings are due to pollution, agricultural run-off, or an invasive alien entity, Lake Erie is besieged by human based effects. In this project, the chapters run chronologically through the most recent history of remediation and issues at hand. It starts off with discussion on the role of industrialization and the increase of the agricultural sector. The project then makes its way into the discussion of Lake Erie's remediation. Lastly, the current issues of the present are addressed. The project discusses what has been, what is, and what could be, in the scope of Lake Erie's life
SERVANTS TO THE LENDER : THE HISTORY OF FAITH-BASED BUSINESS IN FOUR CASE STUDIES by Zack Taylor Burton( )

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

Tyson, Chick-fil-A, Walmart, and Hobby Lobby's presence within the faith-based business community is mostly thanks to corporate lineages that reached well into the previous century. Tyson was founded in 1935, Chick-fil-A in 1946, Walmart in 1962, and Hobby Lobby in 1972, each undergoing various business model and philosophical shifts along with their executives' changing understanding of Christian faith. This thesis analyzes these businesses through a series of case studies, highlighting various uniting themes in their corporate narratives, exploring the ways they interact with their customers and the cultures in which they flourish, while noting that there is a discernible, yet-unexplored gap between faith-based business and workplace spirituality. Ultimately, this thesis concludes that faith-based businesses choose to identify as such as an expression of belief in a Christian supernatural deity's influence in their careers rather than as a way of garnering specific markets or making a profit

HOW TEXAS DISCOVERED COLUMBUS by Michael Horton( )

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

This project examines the Columbus legacy in U.S. history textbooks used in Texas from 1919 to 2017. This study argues that the traditional and glorified interpretation of the life of Columbus dominated his coverage in U.S. history textbooks adopted for use in junior high and high school classes in Texas during the twentieth century. The wave of scholarly criticisms of Columbus at the end of the twentieth century had only sporadic effects on textbooks published at the turn of the century. Inconsistent representations of the new debate over Columbus' legacy in these textbooks show at best a delayed response and at worst a reluctance to change the traditional story of Columbus as an American hero
"A BITTER WET-DRY FIGHT :" : HOW AN INFANTRY REGIMENT INFLUENCED THE NEBRASKA PROHIBITION VOTE OF 1944 by Lindsey Bauman( )

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

This thesis examines the often-overlooked connection between the home front and battle front during World War II, specifically between Nebraska communities and the 134th Infantry Regiment, which was originally part of the Nebraska National Guard. The Allied Dry Forces of Nebraska petitioned to put a prohibition initiative on the state ballot during the election of 1944, while thousands of servicemen were overseas. This case study discusses the ways in which Nebraska residents and servicemen responded to it. Most significant was a petition from members of the 134th Infantry, which was sent to the Committee of Men and Women Against Prohibition to denounce the initiative due to the timing of its proposal. Already viewed as important figures in the war in Europe, their military service gave their voices more credence within the community. A vote against the initiative was portrayed by anti-prohibitionists as a way to support the troops, a resident's patriotic duty during World War II. The servicemen became an essential point of contention and their unexpected involvement in the election ultimately resulted in a bitter struggle between individuals and organizations on both sides. This case study examines how their petition, as well as the letters of other servicemen, impacted the outcome of the vote on the initiative during the election in November
