  • Abstract:

    From introduction: “On November 10, 2014, American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift released the music video for “Blank Space,” the second single off of her fifth studio album, 1989. Since its debut, the music video has racked up over 2.7 billion views on YouTube and has been met with great critical acclaim (1). Randall Roberts of the Los Angeles Times praised Swift’s delivery of an “Oscar-worthy” performance as she played the role of a clingy, obsessive, and crazy girlfriend whose relatio…

    From introduction: “The chant started in the northern end of the stadium. It was faint at first, but it soon grew into a deafening roar as thousands of fans inside Stade de Lyon cried “EQUAL PAY!” during the closing seconds of the US Women’s National Team’s (USWNT) 2019 World Cup victory. Moments later, millions more fans watched on television as Nike aired an advertisement celebrating the players as leaders “fighting not just to make history, but to change it – forever” (1). This outpou…

  • Abstract:

    Editor’s Note: “Podcast America” focused on telling about America’s past and present through listening to and creating podcasts. One of the central goals was to examine how students can include more varied identities in the stories we tell about America, especially in terms of race, class, gender, and sexuality. The class explored different topics and narrative forms by listening to a wide variety of podcasts, from This American Life and 1619 to This Day in Esoteric Political History and 99% …

  • Abstract:

    From the introduction: “The social integration of schools serves as one of the key components of improvement in educational landscapes worldwide. The social stratification that has defined many educational landscapes has resulted in the marginalization of students from lower socio-economic status (SES) backgrounds and/or who belong to minority groups. Social integration has been recognized as an equalizer of sorts simply because it places these students in the same building. As the follo…

  • Abstract:

    From the introduction: “It seems natural that the upstart movements that characterized the 1960s in America began with someone who went against the grain, the firebrand sociologist C. Wright Mills. The leather jacket-wearing and motorcycle-riding Texan turned New Yorker fit in nicely with the rebellious aesthetic of the ‘60s, but it was his ideas that mattered the most in spawning the decade that many say changed America forever. Mills acted as the connective force between postwar Americ…

  • Abstract:

    From the accompanying essay: “In creating an album cover and Spotify playlist for our final project, we hope to draw attention to the problematic nature of the dominant narratives of the United States and the incongruence between these narratives and the reality of life for the majority of Americans. For decades now, Americans have embraced and proclaimed the misleading ideals that the United States is a meritocracy, a melting pot, and a place where upward mobility is not only possible, …

    Abstract:

    From introduction: “Most of history’s fashion controversies have a common denominator: they involve women. Many of these controversies consist of women donning attire less restrictive than that which society permitted them. Tennis has been one of the most regulated sports in the U.S., especially since women started playing in the late 19th century. Both the clothes men permitted them to wear and the scrutiny towards that attire have detracted from their playing and ultimately from the co…

    Abstract:

    From introduction: “In the late 1960s, the Civil Rights Movement struggled in pursuit of social justice and equal rights under the law for Black Americans in the United States. At the forefront of the movement were artists like David Hammons, who used their work to progress the cause. Hammons resided in and around Watts during the 1960s, a key battle ground in the fight for equality. As a result, his work was politically driven and rooted in the Civil Rights and Black Power Movement. Dav…

    Abstract:

    From introduction: “Is the concept of Blackness, as it has been defined throughout history, inextricably rooted in colonization? Is there a chance for this racialized classification to be decolonized? Can it ever be permanently removed from its historical association with degeneracy, subordinacy, and sub-humanity? Frank B. Wilderson, in his essay “Afropessimism and the End of Redemption,” proposes ‘no,’ that those associated with Blackness, often those of predominantly African ancestry, …

    From the introduction: “When I talk to the Spirits, they don’t understand English,” laments Andrew Windy Boy (Chippewa/Cree), a former student at Wahpeton & Flandreau Indian School, with tears and pain in his eyes (1). The Bureau of Indian Affairs and many Christian missionaries outlawed Native tongues at their boarding schools, and some languages died out due to these concerted efforts to eliminate them.​ ​However, many Indigenous communities today are revitalizing their mother tong…

  • Abstract:

    From the introduction: “It’s summer in Detroit, Michigan. Between the lofty tower of the GM Renaissance Center and the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle lies the city’s Warehouse District. As the sun beats down upon a collection of abandoned buildings, the former home of Northern Engineering Works stands, its dull red brick glowing brighter, albeit slightly, in the rays. From the outside, the building seems devoid of life, completely vacant; the faded “Northern Engineering Works” sign and “…
