Great Britain and the Russian Ukase of September 16, 1821

Great Britain and the Russian Ukase of September 16, 1821

Date: January 1970
Creator: Ward, Richard Allen
Description: The affair of the Ukase of September, 1821, evokes such questions as these: What was its real purpose? Was Alexander guilty of aggression in North America or was he only attempting to solve a domestic problem, viz., smuggling in the Alaskan colony? Why did George Canning negotiate separately with Russia after he had expressed a desire to cooperate with the United States? Did he really believe that Russia would be more impressed by separate negotiations, as Harold Temperley has suggested? Did the tsar deliberately appease Britain in the hope of securing her aid in a Russo- Turkish war, as S. B. Okun and Hector Chevigny have contended, or did he follow a policy of expediency?

Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Joyce, Megan & Owen, Lisa N.
Description: This presentation accompanies a paper discussing research exploring the use of photography in colonial India. The thesis of the paper is that British photographers, through their choice of subjects and editing of their works, created a romanticized image of India as the British wished to see it. More recent photography has focused on the reality of the lives of the Indian people. Thus photography has moved from functioning as an agent of colonial domination and political propaganda to a tool used to bring aid and compassion to those in need.

Uganda: The Pearl of Africa: A Shattered Nation

Date: April 3, 2008
Creator: Egan, Laura & Rollins, Christine
Description: This paper discusses research on Uganda. In 1908, a young Winston Churchill, during his travels declared Uganda to be the pearl of Africa. One hundred years later, that pearl has become lacking in luster and lost in the midst of all the baggage Uganda now carries with it. Today, conflict has marred the landscape, the people and the future of Uganda. Peace, though it may seem elusive at best, needs to be achieved as it currently affects the lives of everyone, including women, youth, and those living in Internally Displace Persons (IDP) camps. Both the local and internationally community will need to have a hand in bringing back the luster to Uganda.
