1. Réach-Ngô, Anne. "De l’hybridation générique à l’homogénéisation d’un produit éditorial: Le cas des Trésors imprimés en langue vernaculaire" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p750978_index.html>

Abstract: Si le procédé de la compilation à la Renaissance reste fortement marqué par l’héritage médiéval, les reconfigurations du marché de l’imprimé concourent à la naissance de nouveaux produits éditoriaux, aux usages et visées plus circonscrits : c'est le cas des Trésors imprimés en langue vernaculaire, qui connaissent une véritable vogue éditoriale en France au XVIe siècle. Composés suivant des pratiques de sélection, d’agencement et de présentation relativement similaires, ces ouvrages prennent le plus souvent la forme de manuels, malgré l’hétérogénéité des textes et formes sources. On s’intéressera à la manière dont le modèle des Trésors est révélateur des processus d’hybridation générique consécutif au recyclage des textes hérités à la Renaissance, lors de la confection de ses ouvrages « pratiques » destinés à fournir aux lecteurs les rudiments d’une culture héritée, en un volume de peu de coût, mais de haut prix.

"Francisco Manuel de Melo’s As Segundas Três Musas do Melodino: Towards a Poetics of Writing" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Park Plaza Hotel and Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1049055_index.html>

Abstract: My paper addresses the depictions of writing in the poetry of Francisco Manuel de Melo (1608-1666). A closer look at the second part of his Obras Métricas, As Segundas Três Musas do Melodino, corroborates how these meta-poetic images become a recurring motif in epistolary and panegyric compositions. In analyzing these texts, I intend to highlight three fundamental aspects of Melo’s work. First, his portrayal of the writer’s inherent dignity and independence from dynamics of royal patronage. Secondly, how “writing” as a poetic subject is conditioned by the author’s experience of incarceration and his later involvement in the aristocratic Academia dos Generosos, as well as by a readership determined by conventions proper to different poetic subgenres. And finally, how Melo’s predilection for scriptural metaphors allows him to meditate upon the use of Portuguese in the politically charged atmosphere of seventeenth century Portugal, and in contrast to his own poetry written in Spanish.

Abstract: Successful presidents often will hand pick the individual who will be entrusted to carry out the legacy they leave behind. In turn, these successors – these favorite sons – pledge their allegiance to the tenets of the legacy they inherit and profess continuity in their pursuits. Once elected, though, favorite sons may wish to establish their own legacy. Stepping out of the favorite son structure can be just as enticing as the decision to pursue it in the first place. If done well, by promising (either explicitly or implicitly) to learn from his predecessor’s mistakes, the successor can present himself as building upon and improving the inherited agenda. But if done poorly, a favorite son can be seen as violating the expectations that he will continue his predecessor’s policies. Furthermore, he runs the risk of not breaking free of the negative parts of the inherited agenda. This paper examines the foreign policies of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft to explore what may happen if a president seeks to step out of the favorite son structure by trying to turn an inherited agenda into his own. How Taft sought to differentiate his foreign policy from Roosevelt’s and why his policies failed are interesting cases in their own right, but more importantly offer lessons to presidents as to what not to do when trying to step out of a favorite son structure.

4. Green, Heather. "“The Great Upheaval”: Material and Cultural Change in the Relationship Between the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and the Local Environment in the Klondike Region, 1850-1940" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEH Annual Conference, Westin Seattle, Seattle, WA, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1052478_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, the indigenous population in Dawson City, refer to the Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899), and the immediate four decades following, as, “the great upheaval.” For them, the Gold Rush was not a single event, but a process in which outside forces brought rapid and profound change to their cultural, social, and economic lives which altered their relationship to the natural world. In three short years, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in experienced a physical transformation of their homeland and the implementation of southern administration. Between 1900 and 1940, these environmental implications not only meant that the landscape of the Klondike looked different, but the ways in which the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in interacted with the environment were remarkably different as well.
This paper examines both the short-term and long-term material and cultural impacts that the Klondike Gold Rush had on the environment and the ways in which mining activity altered the relationship between the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and the local environment. Material changes that contributed to an altered relationship include environmental dismantling and destruction of the local ecosystem, which worked against the traditional subsistence lifestyle of the Hwëch’in. Widespread landscape reorganization included gold seekers clearing forests, changing waterways, and dredging in the pursuit of gold. Mining activity affected the water quality and the ability of creeks and streams to support fish, hence, the traditional salmon fishery suffered. Mining activity also drove away game, forcing the Hwëch’in to travel further away from traditional hunting areas. Culturally, elements of the Gold Rush era that contributed to an altered relationship between the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and environment include dislocation from ancestral land, integration into a new cash economy, and restrictions stemming from the implementation of fish and game regulation.
