Jonathan D. Amith
Department of Latin American Studies

Jonathan D. Amith Amith, Jonathan D. "Place Making and Place Breaking: Migration and the Development Cycle of Community in Colonial Mexico." American Ethnologist 32.1 (2005): 159-179.

This work presents an examination of the tactical engagement of indigenous peasant migrants with the colonial Mexican state over spatial rights and the migrants' emergent sense of place in a newly settled locale.

Amith, Jonathan D. The Mobius Strip: A Spatial History of Colonial Society in Guerrero, Mexico . Stanford University Press, 2005.

Focusing on Guerrero on the southwestern coast, anthropologist Amith offers a spatial history of colonial society as a particularly effective way to explore the dynamics of structure and process. He emphasizes land, labor, and capital as the basic parameters that influenced geographic patterns in colonial Mexico in his discussion of the natural and social context of land and property, the dynamics of economic transformation in rural central Guerrero, and struggles for control over grain in the late colonial period.

Matthew H. Amster
Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Matthew H. Amster Amster, Matthew H. "Cross-border Marriage in the Kelabit Highlands of Borneo." Anthropological Forum 15.2 (2005): 131-150.

By examining details of cross-border marriages in highland Borneo, this paper highlights the ways in which Kelabit embrace the opportunities created by the existence of an international frontier and, in the process, harness the power of the state for uniquely local purposes.

Amster, Matthew H. "The Rhetoric of the State: Dependency and Control in a Malaysian-Indonesian Borderland." Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power 12.1 (2005): 23-43.

This article explores the unique position of the Kelabit people of Borneo as they attempt to appropriate aspects of state power or use the rhetoric of state power in their efforts to maintain a status quo with regard to neighboring, and closely related, migrant workers from across the border. The article seeks to offer a contribution to the ethnography of border regions and understandings of local forms of agency and state power in anthropology.

Robert E. Bohrer II
Department of Political Science

Bohrer II, Robert E., and Glen S. Krutz. "The Devolved Party Systems of the United Kingdom: Sub-national Variations from the National Model." Party Politics 11.6 (2005): 654-673.

In this article, Bohrer and Krutz examine the emerging party systems of the devolved environments, with an eye toward shedding light on the factors that influence the number of parties in a system where parties are already mobilized but the institutional context is new. Our findings demonstrate that electoral rules have an independent effect on the number of parties. More specifically, the use of proportional representation has increased the number of parties. In addition, two social cleavage structure factors appear to affect the design of the party system: class and center-periphery. All of these forces lead to a more complex governing arrangement in the devolved settings than that of the United Kingdom.

Department of Environmental Studies

John A. CommitoCasu, Marco, Ferruccio Maltagliati, Piero Cossu, Tiziana Lai, Marco Curini Galletti, Alberto Castelli, and John A. Commito. "Fine-grained Spatial Genetic Structure in the Bivalve Gemma gemma from Maine and Virginia (USA) as Revealed by Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat Markers." Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology 325.1 (2005): 46-54.

This paper represents the first application of a molecular genetics technique, Inter-Simple Sequence Repeats (ISSRs), for a marine invertebrate. It demonstrates that small-scale genetic heterogeneity in populations of this ubiquitous bivalve does not follow a simple, consistent pattern but forms a dynamic, ephemeral genetic patchiness. The fine-grained heterogeneity may result from temporal variation in numbers and genotypes of individuals, which indicates that passive dispersal is not sufficient to give rise to genetic homogeneity at local scales. The paper has implications for natural resource management and the protection of biodiversity in the coastal zone.

Commito, John A., Emily A. Celano, '00, Holly J. Celico, '98, Serena Como, and Craig P. Johnson, '98. "Mussels Matter: Postlarval Dispersal Dynamics Altered by a Spatially Complex Ecosystem Engineer." Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology 316.2 (2005): 133-147.

Brendan Cushing-Daniels
Department of Economics

Cushing-Daniels, Brendan. "Even the Errors Discriminate: How the Split Population Model of Criminal Recidivism Makes Justice Even Less Color Blind." The Review of Black Political Economy 33.1 (2005).

In their 1989 paper on criminal recidivism, Schmidt and Witte developed the split-population model to capture a particular form of heterogeneity; that is, there are some criminals who will never repeat offend. This paper identifies and corrects that bias present in the earlier model. While 54% of actual recidivists are non-white, the earlier model predicts that over 75% of recidivists will be non-white. The correction in this paper eliminates some, but not all, of the bias against non-whites in these predictions. Our results show that policymakers who, for example, consider parole decisions based on the constrained model, will incorrectly deny parole to non-white offenders.

Cushing-Daniels, Brendan, and Patrick Murray, '04. "Welfare Effects of Increased Train Noise: A Comparison of the Costs and Benefits of Train Whistle Use at Highway-Railway Crossings." Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment 10.5 (2005): 357-364.

A U.S. Federal Railroad Administration rule requires trains to sound their whistles while approaching and entering public highway-rail crossings. In an attempt to assess the likely impact of this policy change, they investigated the tradeoff between housing values and railroad safety due to the use of train whistles in Wisconsin. They found that even using the highest estimates of the benefits, the costs imposed by the increased train noise are likely to be greater by an order of magnitude. Furthermore, the costs are borne by homeowners, while the benefits accrue to commuters. Where commuters come largely from outside the political jurisdiction, policymakers are more likely to apply for an exception to prevent the new rule from taking effect.

Jennifer Hansen Hansen, Jennifer. "Existential Fright or Ferocious Market Forces? A Critique of Mark Rego's "Existential Loss Hypothesis"." Philosophy, Psychiatry and Psychology 12.2 (2005): 129-136.

Hansen criticizes Mark Rego's defense of the high rates of antidepressant use. Rego argues that our concern over these rates is misapplied and misdirected fears over existential loss. Hansen argues, however, that some concern about the high rates of antidepressant use may be warranted because of the power of the pharmaceutical industry to market diseases such as depression.

Elizabeth Lambert
Department of English

Lambert, Elizabeth. "Lavender and Politics: Gilbert Elliot's Letters to his Wife." Studies in Burke and his Time 20.1(2005): 66-81.

The biographer in search of Edmund Burke's personality has few viable sources from which to choose, and most are snapshot renderings. The exception is Gilbert Elliot's letters to his wife. Elliot, twenty years Burke's junior, was a Member of Parliament and held several important diplomatic posts, among them, Governor General of India. Elliot's correspondence gives us a rich and even-handed portrait of Burke as well as filling in the elements of Burke's world so as to make the people and events of that time come alive to the modern reader.

This is an analysis of Anne Dubreuilh, a quasi-autobiographical character in one of Simone de Beauvoir's most autobiographical novels, The Mandarins . Because Anne undergoes an identity crisis during which she seesaws back and forth between two conflicting personae, it appears that Beauvoir was calling into question her own sense of self. It is Anne Dubreuilh's language that exposes this questionable balance.

Robert M. Viti
Department of French

Viti, Robert M. "Just Passing Through: Crossing Borders with Félicité and Company in Zola's Rougon-Macquart." Excavatio 19.1-2 (2004): 1-12.

The Rougon side of Zola's fictional family, although ostensibly representative of Napoléon III's parti de l'ordre, spreads chaos by their incessant violation of spatial borders, mixing outside and inside, private and public space. Such a "trait" is hereditary, inherited from the matron of the family, Félicité, a border crosser of the first order. By showing the devastation such disorder occasions, Zola condemns not only the Rougon clan but the entire Second Empire, whose spatial reordering of Paris, so-called Haussmannisation, spreads chaos across the lower classes, forcing them to move, and advantaged the wealthy class in power.
