Matthew H. Amster, "New Sacred Lands: The Making of a Christian Prayer Mountain in Highland Borneo." Sacred Places and "Modern" Landscapes: Sacred Geography and Social-Religious Transformations in South and Southeast Asia Ed. R. Lukens-Bull (Southeast Asian Studies Monograph Series, Arizona State University, 2003)..

"This chapter examines the emergence of a prayer mountain in the interior of Borneo and the local contestations of religious values, politics and power that occur in the context of pilgrimages to this new "sacred" site."

"This chapter offers an ethnohistorical reconstruction of gendered dimensions of Kelabit ritual, and particularly mortuary ritual, among the Kelabit. It draws particular attention to the concept of "bad death" and the ways in which gender served as the basis of a complementary ritual spheres prior to Christian conversion."

Marc H. Bornstein and Martha Arterberry, "Recognition, Discrimination, and Categorization of Smiling by 5-Month-Old Infants." Developmental Science 6 (2003): 585-599.

"This paper presents a study addressing whether infants treat different intensities of smiling (like a big grin and a small smirk) as the same type of expression and whether they differentiate these smiles from another expression like fear. We found that they treat different smiles as similar and they can tell smiles are different from fearful expressions, even when the expressions are modeled by different people."

William D. Bowman
Department of History

"Pietas Austriaca" cover William D. Bowman, Pietas Austriaca (West Lafayette, IN: Purdue University Press, 2003).

"Anna Coreth's Pietas Austriaca was a groundbreaking work on the relationship of religious culture to politics in the House of Habsburg. It covers a long chronological period: from the late medieval period until the early twentieth century. The book's central argument is that Catholic religious attitudes and practices were crucial to the Habsburgs' political practices. For this translation, which involved working with German, old German, and Latin texts, I also wrote a critical introduction, provided a set of translator's notes, and constructed two bibliograpies--one based on the original author's footnotes and another from contemporary sources on the topic."

Jennifer L. Hansen, "Listening to People or Listening to Prozac? Another Consideration of Causal Classifications." Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 10 (2003): 57-62.

"This article is a commentary on Jennifer Radden's piece "Is This Dame Melancholy? Equating Today's Depression and Past Melancholia." Radden argues that the methodology of psychiatric nosology should be and is descriptivism. Because descriptivism is the method of psychiatric nosology, Radden argues that one cannot consider historical diagnoses of melancholia to be the same disorder as clinical depression. In my piece, however, I argue that we ought to reconsider finding underlying causes to psychiatric disorders (even if those causes are not necessarily biological in nature). Causall classifications allow us to find patterns and similarities cross-culturally, and may lead us to ask important questions about the socio-political context in which we find illnesses such as depression."

"Mesoamerican Archaeology, which I co-edited, is the first book in the series, Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology. Intended as an alternative to traditional textbooks or readers containing reprinted articles, Mesoamerican Archaeology contains specially commissioned essays by leading archaeologists working in Mexico and Central America. The chapters focus on key time periods, sites, and the issues these times and places require us to confront, placing the reader in the middle of contemporary debates. In addition to being the co-editor, I wrote Chapter 12."

"The article discusses the role that important social events revolving around the consumption of food and drink (feasts) played among the Maya elite of Mexico and Central American during the 6th-9th centuries A.D. Drawing on archaeological evidence from Copan, Honduras, I argue that these events were a form of competitive generosity through which social identity and status were negotiated and reaffirmed."

"In this [chapter], I consider the meaning of Maya burial practices as reflective of decisions and beliefs of the living. In this sense, I reverse the usual archaeological preoccupation with burials as indicators of the status and significance of the person buried. Reviewing burial practices in the Maya area in this light, I argue that the living used burials as a way to create a social landscape informed by knowledge of past and present."

"This article looks at two German plays, both first performed in 1933, one fascist (Schlageter) and one anti-fascist (The Races). Both plays are important historically since SCHLAGETER is considered the first successful fascist drama produced in the Third Reich, and THE RACES, performed in exile in Zurich, was the first major literary work protesting German fascism to be produced. In both, the protagonist undergoes a conversion process to the respective ideological ideal. I argue, using contemporary critical and psychoanalytic (object relations)theories, that crucial to these opposite "conversions" in the plays is a commitment to traditional patriarchal gender roles and the designation of "proper" male or female behavior."

"This work evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of using the workplace in a national program to reduce HIV transmission and to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on the nation's well-being. While the workplace is a pragmatic choice and a convenient venue for health promotion, including HIV prevention, its use raises serious political, philosophical, and practical problems that are addressed in this paper."

Eileen M. Stillwaggon, "AIDS and Poverty in Africa." The Sexuality and Society Reader Ed. Stombler et al. (Allyn and Bacon, 2003).

"This article critiques the reigning paradigm that attributes differences in HIV prevalence almost exclusively to differences in sexual behavior. The failure of social science to incorporate biomedical data into the analysis of HIV and AIDS has led to narrow policy prescriptions that have failed to stem the spread of HIV epidemics in poor populations."

Eileen M. Stillwaggon, "Racial Metaphors: Interpreting Sex and AIDS in Africa." Development and Change 34:5 (2003): 809-832.

"This article demonstrates that western preconceptions regarding African sexuality distorted early research on the social context of AIDS in Africa and limited the scope of preventive policies. Africans are portrayed in much of the AIDS discourse as the social 'Other' in works marked by sweeping generalizations and innuendo, rather than useful comparative data on sexual behavior."

The similarities in their fictionalized accounts are so striking that Annie Ernaux recognized herself in Beauvoir's novel. However, the most prominent resemblance is the fact that each woman chose a foreigner as a lover and found his alien status to be what made him most irresistable."

John A. Volkmar, "Context and Control in Foreign Subsidiaries: Making a Case for the Host Country National Manager" Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies 10 (2003): 93-105.

"This article challenges the conventional wisdom that equates expatriate managers with increased control of foreign subsidiaries. The study integrates theory from the control, leadership, and organizational change literatures in developing a model that identifies specific conditions in which Host Country National managers (HCNs) can be expected to afford greater control at the subsidiary level than expatriates. Relevant factors include cultural (national, organizational, professional) asymmetry, leadership of organizational change, and parent company legitimacy."

"We find that inflation episodes in industrialized countries since the 1960s have been caused primarily by policymakers' pursuit of overly ambitious targets for economic growth, sometimes for political reasons, as well as the export of inflation from the United States. Exchange rate agreements such as the European Exchange Rate Mechanism prove to be effective deterrents to inflation."

Randall K. WilsonRandall K. Wilson, "Community-Based Management and National Forests in the Western United States: Five Challenges." Policy Matters 12 (2003): 216-224.

The article examines the major issues facing community-based collaborative resource management on public lands in the American West. These include the challenge of public representation, the authority and role of scientific knowledge, translating public input into policy, implementation and monitoring issues, and adaptation to place-specific contexts. The article then illustrates how these challenges are exacerbated by the 19th century institutionalization of public lands that continues to frame community-forest relations in the region.
