Abstract: Gustav Jaeger (1832-1917), the eccentric German zoologist, homeopath and discoverer of the human soul in scents (Die Entdeckung der Seele, 1878) also developed a line of clothing to promote health by regulating body emanations. In the framework of the late-nineteenth-century life reform movements in Germany that included both physical and spiritual dimensions, Jaeger uniquely combined the olfactory with the sartorial. This paper traces primarily Jaeger’s later work as a successful textile entrepreneur as he moved from science toward popular science and focuses on liminality, membranes, and exchanges – concepts that can be used to analyze both smells and clothing.

Abstract: There is open agreement that tax reform in Hong Kong is now a matter of when rather than if. The Hong Kong Government itself acknowledges that Hong Kong’s revenue law is out-dated. The expected keystone of the reform process is the introduction of Hong Kong’s first ever general consumption tax, in the form of a Goods and Services Tax. The introduction of a GST will represent the most radical tax reform in Hong Kong since 1947 when the jurisdiction's first income tax system was introduced. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the PRC is also notable for retaining a comparatively outmoded political system. Given that Hong Kong is by most measures a first-world, city-state and has been so for some time, this conjunction of attenuated development in two fundamental public policy regimes raises several questions. First, how has this come to pass? Second, what relationship, if any, lies between the development and maintenance of the tax and political regimes? Third, if major tax reform is to come, is this bound to add significant impetus to the calls for increased democracy in Hong Kong?

5. Rowe, Leroy. "Citizen Reformers: Industrial Education and the Reform of Black Delinquent Girls at the State Industrial Home for Negro Girls at Tipton, Missouri, 1916-1941." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 94th Annual Convention, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Cincinnati, Ohio, <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p377329_index.html>

Abstract: This paper argues that in an era when blacks had little access to government resources, educational and job training opportunities, the Tipton Home was uniquely positioned to have a positive effect on Missouri’s most vulnerable African American girls. An analysis of clients’ case files demonstrate that an all-black staff at this institution promoted moral behavior, respectability, and self-sufficiency as part of the reform program. However, these reformers also stressed the need for black girls to empower themselves with a skill or to continue their education before taking their “place in the world.” By and large, the work of rehabilitating African American female delinquents at the Tipton Home revolved around teaching the girls, among other things, moral values, job skills and poise. Thus, the institutional experience of the girls demonstrates that the institution existed, not just for the sole purpose to be punitive, but to also serve the purpose of preparing the girls for what one superintendent of the institution called, “useful citizenship.”
