 Library Athenaeum to feature Dr. Tucker Brown | April 12, 2010

On Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 2 p.m., Dr. Tucker Brown will present "Clever Marketing or Subcultural Mantra: Hegemonic Ideology and Thrasher Mag"

Dr. Tucker Brown, assistant professor of sociology, will examine hegemonic processes specific to the formation of subcultural identities among skateboarders. (Hegemony refers to the political, economic, ideological or cultural power exerted by a dominant group over other groups, regardless of the explicit consent of the latter.)

The analysis primarily focuses on Thrasher Magazine as an agent of socialization and the publication's role in fostering the hegemonic ideology of commitment among skateboarders. Of particular interest is the Thrasher generated content including featured articles and interviews, letters to the editor, and user submitted content and the subsequent cultivation of hegemonic ideologies among skateboarders. It is theorized that the hegemonic ideology of commitment pervades the skateboarding subculture and serves as a subtle marketing tool for the furthering of the publication's capitalist interests. Qualitative interviews and observations are incorporated to further analyze relevant findings.

 Library Athenaeum to feature Dr. Bert Randall | April 5, 2010

On Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2 p.m., Dr. Bert Randall will present "The Shi'a, the Sunni Wahhabi,
the Taliban and Al-Qaeda"

For over thirteen centuries the major religious conflict in the Muslim world has been the Sunni–Shi'a conflict that goes back to the very beginnings of Islam. The extent and periodic intensity of this conflict has often been overlooked, especially by politicians. America experienced this in major ways in Iraq, and it is a factor in Afghanistan as well as one of the major hurdles to peace in the Middle East.

Dr. Bert Randall’s presentation will explore this centuries old conflict as it influences the current situation in the Middle East, especially Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Dr. Randall will use the material recently developed for training sessions with the First Squadron–32nd CAV at Fort Campbell prior to their spring Deployment to Afghanistan.

 Library Athenaeum to feature Dr. Jill Franks | March 29, 2010

On Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 2 p.m., Dr. Jill Franks will present Finding Their Voice: 20th Century Irish Women Writers

Feminism comes later, and in a different form, to Irish women than to either their American or British counterparts. In part, this is due to national struggles for independence from England, and for creation of a uniquely Irish identity. In large part, this lag is due to legislation against abortion, divorce, and contraception. Dr. Jill Franks, professor of English, will explore the lives and work of a handful of women novelists and memoirists to describe how a uniquely Irish women’s voice emerges in the latter half of the twentieth century.
