Abstract: The Geospatial Summer Institute Fellowship Program is an Oklahoma NASA Space Grant fellowship program built around the intensive course that provides hands-on experience in GIS, GPS and remote sensing for students from all eight Space Grant affiliate universities in Oklahoma. For two weeks, May 16-19 & 23-26 , and with support from Oklahoma NASA Space Grant Consortium, the Geospatial Summer Institute provided twenty undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to explore technological, application, and industrial experiences in remote sensing, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and Geographic Information Science (GIS). The program includes intensive hands-on geo-techniques training and tours to geospatial industries and government agencies. Students also had the option to receive 3 credit hours (s/u graded) through the University of Oklahoma.The purpose of the program was to gain a basic understanding of geographic information systems. Students became familiar with the potential uses of geographic information systems, provided a basic introduction to effectively communicating spatial information through maps and gained knowledge to the ArcGIS desktop software which will provide a foundation to expand GIS expertise. The institute was taught under the direction of Dr. John McIntosh of the Center for Spatial Analysis and Geoinformatics Program at the University of Oklahoma on the Norman campus. The Center for Spatial Analysis is the nexus of geographic information science at the University of Oklahoma. Their unique and diverse strengths encompass research and education in geoinformatics, remote sensing, spatial analysis, visual analytics, database and knowledgebase development and geocomputational methods.

Abstract: Over 6 million acres of winter wheat are planted in Oklahoma annually. Although low- and no-till production practices reduce the amount of fossil fuel imputs required to establish a wheat crop, as an annual crop fossil fuel investment must be made each year. Wheat is a multiple purpose crop that can be grazed by sheep or cattle in the fall and winter, harvested for grain in early summer or grazed or cut for hay. Multiple use crops are an important economic tool that increases agricultural enterprise diversity, lowers economicrisk and adds stability to the economy of rural communities. Perennial cool- season grasses do not have to be established each year and can be used just like winter wheat to support grazing livestock in the fall and grazed or cut of hay in early summer. Perennial cool- season grasses can be established on erodible land to reduce soil erosion and used to replace some wheat acreages to decrease fossil fuel inputs. However, in animal performance trials at the USDA- ARS Grazing laboratory in El Reno, OK perennial cool-season grasses were not able to provide as much daily body weight gain as winter wheat. Possible reasons for the differences in daily gain between winter wheat and perennial cool-season grasses may be due to differences in digestibility and/or feed intake. To answer this question, and experiment was coducted to measure differences in forage intake between winter wheat and a perrennial cool-season grass (Triticulm aestivum Var. Pioneer 2174 and Festuca arundianaceace) harvested at the same stage of maturity in the spring and fed as high moisture hay.

Abstract: This research examines machismo through a comparative generational study of two groups of Mexican men living in the U.S. by examining how conceptions and understandings of machismo change across generations. Machismo has been attributed to Mexican men where the grand narrative of machismo characterizes Latino men as domineering and ruthless machos. Machismo has been ingrained in the Mexican culture and it affects those that experience it first hand, especially women. However, the literature on machismo shows that Mexican men aren't simply domineering and insensitive, but that they are also family men and caring. Latinos are the fastest growing minority group in the U.S., and Mexicans comprise the largest number of Latinos (U.S. Census 2010). Mexican women and men living in the U.S. are increasingly taking on different gender roles and it is important to examine if machismo is still an influence in Mexican culture. This research uses qualitative in-depth interviews with Mexican men living in the U.S. to explore these men’s understanding of machismo. The sample includes nine men between the ages of 18 to 28 which comprise the younger generation, and another nine men between the ages of 48 to 58 which comprise the older generation. This research will contribute to our understanding of machismo by exploring how Mexican men living in the U.S. in today’s society understand, enact, and define the concept of machismo, and how these concepts are similar and different for two generations of Mexican men living in the United States.

Abstract: This paper investigates the Latino Republican legislators’ views on their political partisanship. It elucidates on how the Latino legislators’ ethnicity affects their access to the Republican Party. Lastly, it also asks about their views of the future of the Republican Party among the Latino electorate. The case study is based on interviews conducted during the 82nd and 83rd legislative session. This is an interesting question since the 82nd legislative saw the emergence of seven Republican Latinos.

5. Hildebrand, Jennifer. "The Sound of Double Consciousness: A Case Study of the Life of Roland Hayes" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Hyatt Regency, Buffalo, New York USA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p35535_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One feels his twoness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.
—W.E.B. Du Bois


Using the lens of double consciousness seems the best way to understand Roland Hayes, a great tenor who made his breakthrough in 1917. Driven by his “Negro” soul, Hayes helped open the stage to black American artists; he brought spirituals to the American stage, and, fairly early in his career, recognized and celebrated the blackness he found in his voice. At the same time, Hayes felt pressure to conform to the standards of white America. Indeed, this mindset reverberated through his music, especially early in his career, as Hayes tried to pattern his singing after European masters. At the same time, on some level, Hayes was aware of the great importance of the culture of the black community. African American music and dance formed some of his earliest memories and shaped his childhood identity. Not until much later, however, would he come to understand the complex contributions of Africa to his own cultural background. My conference presentation will focus on Hayes’s struggle with “warring ideals” and his attempts to reconcile himself to his African cultural heritage.
