ItemRacial Profiling(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Meehan, Albert J.; Ponder, Michael C.; Brieger, GottfriedWe have three goals for this presentation: 1) to briefly review why racial profiling-specifically driving while black-catapulted to national attention in the 1990's; 2) to present our research which focuses on the importance of residential segregation or what we call "race and place" to understanding profiling behavior, and; 3) to discuss the implications of our research for the proposed "solutions" to this problem. ItemFashion and Politics: How Roman Women Groomed their Public Images(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Wood, Susan; Brieger, GottfriedHow Roman women portrayed their public image through the use of hair styles and fashion. ItemMemory and the Dark Dream of Irish History(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Moran, Seán Farrell; Brieger, GottfriedIrish history has left its traces in memory, legible vestiges which survive no matter how often they seem to be erased. It is these traces which reiterate Irish history and in the process control the past and the present. ItemDetroit: Techno(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Bowen, Johnathan; Brieger, GottfriedDetroit has long been known by many names: Motown, the Motor City, Hockey Town, and even the less than flattering Murder City. However, with the passing of time and the dimming and brightening of trends, Detroit would come to be known by another name: TechnoTown. ItemHair of the Dog(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Oakley, Barbara A.; Brieger, GottfriedIn the 1970s through the 1980s, a group of American fishermen and businessmen teamed up with the Soviets to form one of the only joint Soviet-American companies in the world Marine Resources Company. In this Joint Venture, Americans were to catch fish within the newly defined 200-mile limit, then pass them off at sea for the Soviets to process. To serve as translators, Marine Resources hired a dozen or so American speakers of Russian: university students, mostly, with a sprinkling of adult children of Russian immigrants thrown in. They were to live on board the Soviet trawlers and keep tabs on the amount of fish brought on board so that the fishermen would be properly reimbursed. ItemThe Contributions of The Jam Handy Organization to American Commerce and Culture(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Eberwein, Robert T.; Sandy, Bill; Brieger, GottfriedFilm to Jamison Handy was not an end in itself, but a means to an end, one of many ways to reach out and penetrate into the mind of the viewer..Where Hollywood used film as a substitute for the stage, a way to entertain, Handy saw it as a window, a way to take the viewer anywhere in the world. ItemWellness, Health Promotion and Injury Prevention Advocacy(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Rorke, Stafford C.; Goslin, Brian R.; Brieger, GottfriedApproximately fifty percent of all untimely disease and death is preventable. This paper outlines public health issues and initiatives of concern to the Oakland community. The longterm cost to society of not addressing these issues, is immeasurable. We argue that no student educational experience is complete without exposure to such subject matter. Further, we advocate that every student should be given the opportunity to address personal wellness issues within the curriculum. ItemWhat Profiteth the Not-For-Profit University? Notes From the Dismal Science(Oakland University, 2002-04-01) Folland, Sherman T.; Brieger, GottfriedThe biblical phrase I recall is "What profiteth a man if he gain the whole world but lose his own soul." At times I think that the "soul" of the university is the pursuit of truth, art, and knowledge. Yet, at other times I think our main work is to pass the best of our knowledge and culture on to the next generation; 'we touch the future, we teach.' Perhaps it is best to say that both are the soul of a university.
