Abstract: Metropolis: any large city or the chief; and sometimes capital city of a country, state, or region; or the mother city or parent state of a colony.

Gotham: journalistic shorthand for New York City or an English village, proverbial for the foolishness of its inhabitants.


While the definitions indicate broad urban experience, the comic book discourse linked to Metropolis and Gotham are informed and transformed by historic aspirations and apprehensions associated with city life in the United States. This paper explores the binary between triumph and failure associated with urbanism in superhero comic book narratives. More than the backdrop for fantastic adventures, Metropolis and Gotham are amalgamating fictive landscapes that act as spaces of emergent ideology continually reflecting splintered communal realities linked to conflicts linked to race, class, and gender in the city.

Abstract: The 1993 Russian constitution created a hybrid presidential-parliamentary system in which the president has the power to initiate and veto legislation and to issue normative decrees. We identify three sets of influences on the use of these law-making and decree-making powers by the president and parliament: those stemming from basic constitutional constraints on the use of decree-making power; those associated with long-term and short-term temporal considerations; and the effect of change in the policy distance between the president and the Duma. These factors shape the strategic context in which the two presidents and four Dumas since 1993 have operated. On the basis of a comprehensive examination of the record of laws and decrees promulgated from 1994 through 2004, we evaluate and largely confirm these propositions. A case study of the use of law and decree in setting policy in the area of land ownership illustrates the interplay of these forces.

Abstract: In this paper, I examine how nationhood is reproduced in and through the students’ everyday social relations. First, I demonstrate how a nationally demarcated university system patterns the students’ social relations along national lines. The students choose their friends not because they share the same nationality, but because they are there. These institutions make nationhood a parameter – not a criterion – of their friendship choices. Second, I examine how the students’ social relations are simultaneously reproduced through the interactional practices in which they routinely engage. Through language choices, discursive practices, and embodied stances, the students communicate, constitute, and reproduce nationhood as a relevant feature of their day-to-day interactions. Institutions provide national paths along which the students’ social relations take shape, and interactional practices make nationhood a salient feature of those relations. The students come to the university to pursue diverse objectives, but they leave as Romanians and Hungarians.

Abstract: This study expands communicative understandings of fund raising by analyzing the discourses of university fund raisers. We found potentially problematic juxtapositions between the language of corporate ideology and friendship. Specifically, we argue that fund raisers frequently rely on friendships of utility (Aristotle, Trans. 1999), suggesting a colonization (Deetz, 1992) of fund raising in higher education. While we question this colonization, we also find evidence that fund raisers are moving away from the language of friendship. Therefore, new questions arise about what fund raising processes will look like communicatively without the language of friendship.
