2004 College Author Citations


Matthew H. Amster
Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Amster, Matthew H. "The 'Many Mouths' of Community: Gossip and Social Interaction among the Kelabit of Borneo." Asian Anthropology 3 (2004): 97-127.

This article examines gossip and sociocultural change among the Kelabit, a small indigenous group in Sarawak, Malaysia. The paper unravels some of the nuances and complexities of changing social relationships within the Kelabit community and offers a theoretical contribution to the anthropological study of gossip.


Lidia Hwa Soon Anchisi
Department of French and Italian

Anchisi, Lidia Hwa Soon. "In Spite of D'Annunzio: Recoding Femininity in Trionfo della morte." Italian Studies in Southern Africa. 17 (2004): 3-22.

An analysis of Ippolita Sanzio in Trionfo della morte reveals that she oscillates between spiritual and sexual representations. By adopting Adriana Cavarero¿s notion of a ¿conceptual theft¿ it becomes possible to read Ippolita¿s oscillating body as a means of evading the phallogocentric system of its creator. Hence, in spite of the fact that she is the product of male thought, Ippolita contributes to representations of female subjectivities that can be understood outside of the traditional codes of a patriarchal system.

Jennifer Hansen
Department of Philosophy

Hansen, Jennifer. "Affectivity: Depression and Mania." The Philosophy of Psychiatry: A Companion. Ed. Jennifer Radden. New York: Oxford UP, 2004. 36-53.

In this chapter, I consider several different philosophical debates concerning what affective (mood) disorders, such as depression, are. Specifically, I highlight the debate between advocates of the moral and medical view of depression. The former believe depression brings the sufferer truthful insights about him/herself and the world, while the latter argues that depression is solely a medical problem in need of a physician's intervention. In addition to the moral and medical debate within philosophy, I consider broader social and political analyses of depression, e.g. whether or not depression might be a symptom of modernity, the pharmaceutical industry's role in marketing depression, and how depression affects race, sexuality, and gender.


Julia Hendon
Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Hendon, Julia A. "In the House: Maya Nobility and their Figurine-Whistles." Expedition 45.3 (2003): 28-33.

The article considers the role of figurine-whistles, small clay figures of men and women, in the ritual and social life of elite Maya living at Copan, Honduras. Since most of the figurines used at Copan were imported from central Honduras, I was able to draw on my recent work at Cerro Palenque for comparative purposes. The figurine analysis was carried out with the assistance of Gettysburg student Amy Yarnell.

Bachand, Holly, Rosemary A. Joyce, and Julia A. Hendon. "Bodies Moving in Space: Ancient Mesoamerican Sculpture and Embodiment." Cambridge Archaeological Journal 13.2 (2003): 238-247.

With Holly Bachand and Rosemary Joyce of the University of California- Berkeley, the article draws on Judith Butler's proposal that embodiment is a process of repeated citation of precedents, which led the authors to consider the experiential effects of Mesoamerican practices of ornamenting space with images of the human body. Comparison of the human figural images used by the Maya and Olmec allows them to consider the ways in which body knowledge was produced and body practices institutionalized.

This page has working papers and publications for my work with James Roumasset in Hawaii.

Kaiser, Brooks, and Louis Cain. "Public Goods Provisions: Lessons from the Tellico Dam Controversy." Natural Resources Journal. 43.4 (2003): 979-1008.

Although absent from the initial Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973, evidence of economic considerations first appeared in the 1978 amendments. The only controversial vote concerning the ESA was the one to exempt the Tellico Dam (1978). Although the dam was a local project with little expected net benefit, this article argues that broader economic considerations mattered. Working from public choice models for congressional voting decisions, a limited dependent variable regression analysis indicates the economic variables with the most explanatory power for this environmental decision are college education, poverty, the designation of critical habitat within a district, the number of endangered species in the state, dollars the state received due to earlier ESA funding, and the percentage of the district that is federal land. Comparisons with aggregated environmental votes in the same year highlight the intensity of economic considerations in the Tellico case. Our results imply that the ESA's prohibitions have worked successfully to give weight to non-quantifiable and dispersed benefits in the face of concentrated and visible costs.

In this paper we give necessary and sufficient conditions for discreteness of a group generated by a hyperbolic element and an elliptic one of odd order. This completes the classification of discrete groups with non-pi-loxodromic generators in the class of two-generator groups with real parameters. The criterion is given also as a list of all parameters that correspond to discrete groups. An interesting corollary of the result is that the group of the minimal known volume hyperbolic orbifold has real parameters.

The authors at three different types of institutions (highly selective, selective, and regional state university) investigated correlations between the SAT and PRAXIS I tests required for teacher certification. At all three institutions, moderately strong correlations were found between these measures raising the issue of unintended consequences for the use of PRAXIS I to screen teacher education candidates.

Ramanathapillai, Rajmohan. "Prisoners of Liberation: War, Trauma, and Story Telling." Pakistan Journal of Women's Studies: Alam-e-Niswan 10 (2003): 211-228.

The events in "Prisoners of Liberation" are typical of those that occur in the north and east of Sri Lanka, a region that has been devastated by more than 20 years of civil war. When survival becomes the supreme urgency in a war-torn society, personal or social reflections become its first casualty. Storytelling then emerges as an alternative to social reflection. Imaginative writing, Madison Smart Bell says, "is always a solitary and anti-social activity." "Prisoners of Liberation" is not an outcome of a solitary imagination or of anti-social activity. When critical thinking and reflection falter under the weight of tragic events, storytelling allows people to remember the unspeakable, transforming the unspeakable into narrative so that victims are protected from harm. Besides its therapeutic value, storytelling helps the victims to connect the past to the present and even to hope for the future.

Eleonora Petrova. Stobi Guide. Trans. Carolyn Snively. Skopje: Museum of Macedonia, 2003.

The Stobi Guide is a guide to the Hellenistic, Roman, and Early Byzantine city of Stobi in the Republic of Macedonia. It may be used as an on-site guide by visitors to the site, who need information about the city plan and the location, date, and purpose of the excavated buildings. Published, however, in Macedonian and English on facing pages in order to reach a wider audience, the guide also introduces the reader to the broader history of the site and its region and to some of the architectural and historical questions excavation and research at Stobi have raised.

The translator participated in a large Yugoslav-American excavation project at Stobi from 1971 to 1981 and spent the 2002-2003 academic year in the Republic of Macedonia in order to work on the publication of the Episcopal Basilica at Stobi.

These novels trace the lives of a Puerto Rican, a Mexican-American, and a Cuban-American adolescent. The three adolescents share certain traits and issues as adolescents. They also share the double burden of being adolescents belonging to a particular Latino group, in a particular historical context, living as members of a certain race and class in the United States. The article analyzes the three novels¿ unique techniques for capturing the complexities of these ¿Adolescent Borderlands.¿

Using data from industrialized countries from 1961-94, we find that increases in oil and commodity prices have a smaller inflationary effect in countries with independent central banks and stable governments. This indicates that monetary policy is affected in ways predicted by economic theory by the institutional framework within which it operates.
