    • Winter ecology of the gray vireo Vireo vicinior in Sonora, Mexico

      Russell, Stephen M.; Bates, John Marshall, 1961- (The University of Arizona., 1987)
      A marked population of wintering Gray Vireos (Vireo vicinior) was studied for two seasons (1985-1986 and 1986-1987) on two study sites near Puerto Lobos, Sonora, Mexico. Eleven of the 15 individuals banded in the first winter returned to the same areas in the following winter. Territories were defended throughout the winter and averaged 0.9 ha in size (N = 9). Territorial interactions occurred frequently along boundaries as neighbors trespassed to forage on each others' territories. All birds appeared to defend individual territories. First year birds appeared to occupy marginal territories on the periphery of the best habitats. Fruit from the elephant tree, Bursera microphylla, became a dominant part of the vireo's diet as winter progressed and the fruit ripened. The importance of B. microphylla to the vireos' winter diet and the high degree of overlap between the winter range of the vireos and the distribution of the plant suggested a mutualistic interaction between them. Gray Vireos acted as the primary dispersers for the plant.
    • "Within and Without His Religion": The Formation of the Colonial Mexican Jesuits, 1600-1650

      Lotz-Heumann, Ute E.; Plummer, Marjorie E.; McClain, Hannah Grace; Gosner, Kevin M. (The University of Arizona., 2020)
      This thesis examines processes of identity formation among the colonial Mexican Jesuits in the first half of the seventeenth century. Recent historiography has emphasized the central role played by the early modern Jesuits in European imperial and missionary expansion. While the global significance of the Society of Jesus is asserted in these works, little attention has been paid to the identity and day-to-day activities of the Jesuits, especially as these were religious in nature. This project seeks to address this gap in the literature by closely analyzing Jesuit identity as it was conceived and performed in the province of New Spain. Utilizing contemporary manuscript and print sources composed by the Jesuits, this thesis explores the ways in which Jesuit priests formed their identity through both internal discourses and external interactions in colonial Mexican society. It accomplishes this through a social and cultural analysis of the Mexican Jesuit community as a whole, while also referring to a comparative case study of an individual Jesuit in the province, namely the Irish-born Padre Miguel Godínez. By examining identity at the level of the individual and the group, this thesis argues that a distinctly Jesuit identity was formed internally through a textual discourse of perfection that required constant negotiation. Externally, Jesuit identity was formed through social interactions with other actors in colonial Mexico, including the indigenous subjects of the Jesuit mission. As missionaries, the Jesuits constructed an identity that prioritized sacramental and pastoral duties within local communities, duties that were simultaneously logistical and spiritual. By providing a clearer view of the colonial Mexican Jesuits as they understood themselves, this study enriches our grasp of transregional early modern phenomena, particularly global Catholicism.
    • Without Conscience: A Critique of Pharmacist Refusal Clause Rhetoric

      Silleck, Jennette Lynn; Geary, Adam; Briggs, Laura; Nye, Jennifer (The University of Arizona., 2008)
      The thesis analyzes the political and scientific rhetoric used to enact pharmacist refusal clauses. I examine how refusal clauses are rhetorically framed in politics as well as the "scientific" rhetoric advocates use to generate support for these laws. Additionally, I highlight the consequences these clauses have for women.Chapter one focuses on the political discourse of refusal clauses. I develop an analysis of the phrase "conscience" versus "refusal" clause. I expose how pharmacists and refusal clause advocates make discrimination claims using Cindy Patton as a theoretical framework. Finally, I examine "refusal narratives" from women who have been denied contraceptives by pharmacists. The second chapter analyzes "scientific" rhetorical strategies. Refusal clause advocates rhetorically reclassify contraceptives as an abortion method. I will discuss how this strategy of reclassification has wide implications on public policy. In the conclusion I present the negative consequences refusal clauses have on women.
    • Wittgenstein and metaphysics

      Macy, Vaughana (The University of Arizona., 1968)
    • Wittgenstein's private language argument and its major critics

      Nuttycombe, Louis Gerald, 1937- (The University of Arizona., 1965)
    • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756-1791) Completed Wind Concertos: Baroque and Classical Designs in the Rondos of the Final Movements

      Koner, Karen Michelle; Kolosick, J. Timothy (The University of Arizona., 2008)
      Analysis of the wind concerto finales reveals characteristics of several different concerto forms. Mozart incorporated ideas from the French Rondeau, the Baroque Concerto Grosso, and the Classical Sonata. His early concertos seem to favor earlier forms and ideas, and his final concerto exemplifies a more advanced Classical form. This research has revealed style relationships between forms of the Baroque compositions and Mozart's use of Rondo form in the finales of his wind concertos. This places historically Mozart's wind concerto Rondos between the Baroque Concerto grosso and the fully developed Rondo of Beethoven and Haydn.

    • A woman's work is never done: Changing labor at Grasshopper Pueblo

      Reid, J. Jefferson; Dahlen, Sarah Paige (The University of Arizona., 2001)
      After being a dominant decorated ware in the northern Southwest for centuries, Cibola White Ware ceased to be produced in the Grasshopper region of Arizona within a single generation, sometime between A.D. 1300--1325. The demise of Cibola White Ware and the increase in locally-produced Roosevelt and Grasshopper red wares coincided with the transition to full dependence on agriculture in this region. This study draws on feminist theory, theories of technological change, and an extremely robust archaeological record to construct an explanatory model of this ceramic transition by exploring one critical feature of the context in which it occurred: the labor of Grasshopper women. The model proposes that Roosevelt and Grasshopper red ware pottery were less labor-intensive than Cibola White Ware pottery to produce and that their adoption was related to women's scheduling constraints associated with the rapid transition to agriculture.
    • Women and childhood trauma: A handbook for substance abuse counselors

      Newlon, Betty J.; Banks, Beth Ellen Lawing, 1959- (The University of Arizona., 1993)
      Research indicates that at least half of all women substance abusers were abused in childhood and this trauma negatively impacts substance abuse recovery. Professionals in the field agree that substance abuse counselors need to understand trauma, its effects, and treatment in order to work with their female clients. The purpose of this thesis was to develop a handbook to assist substance abuse counselors in private practice in assessing and treating child abuse trauma in women substance abusers. The handbook was developed through the historical research method and the action method of applied research. The handbook outline and completed manuscript were evaluated by substance abuse counselors in private practice with experience counseling trauma survivors. The evaluations indicated the handbook would be useful for substance abuse counselors. Recommendations for changes suggested by the evaluators will be made prior to publication. Implications for further research on women substance abusers and childhood trauma are presented.

    • Women in nineteenth-century Pullman

      Carter, Paul; Hoover, Douglas Pearson (The University of Arizona., 1988)
      Built in 1880, George Pullman's railroad car manufacturing town was intended to be a model of industrial order. This Gilded Age capitalist's ideal image of working class women is reflected in the publicly prescribed place for women in the community and the company's provisions for female employment in the shops. Pullman wanted women to establish the town's domestic tranquility by cultivating a middle class environment, which he believed was a key to keeping the working class content. Throughout the course of the idealized communitarian experiment, however, Pullman's policies and prescriptions changed to meet the needs of working class families who depended on the wages of women. This paper will study the ideologies and realities surrounding women in nineteenth century Pullman.
    • Women in the plays of Tennessee Williams: studies in personal isolation and outraged sensibilities
