Assessment of Demographic situation in the city of Denver
...The main intention of this research project is to identify and study the interaction between the minorities living in Denver. This paper is intended to look into demographic situation in the city and its historical background.
In the year 1864, Colonel John Chivington led a group of Colorado volunteer militia against a peaceful Arapahoe and Cheyenne Indian camp located west of Denver. Using both cavalry and cannon, they effectively wiped out this camp, killing an estimated 150 men, women, and children. History has recorded many of the very gruesome details of torture and corpse disfigurement committed and bragged about by the militia...
What it means to be Caribbean? What effects did Globalization have on the Caribbean identity?
...What it means to be Caribbean? What effects did Globalization have on the Caribbean identity?
An apt description of the typical Caribbean is that he or she is part-African, part-European, part-Asian, part Native American but totally Caribbean; to understand this is to understand creative diversity”.
We speak of this region of some 30 million inhabitants as Hispanic Caribbean, Anglophone Caribbean, Francophone Caribbean, Dutch-speaking Caribbean, emphasizing by this hyphenation, a fragmentation which is the legacy of a heritage of separation and shattered identities. Yet, this has not posed any limitations on us as we go through that “awesome process of becoming”...
Latin America and its Relationship with Postmodernism
...García Canclini is the author of “ Hybrid Cultures” a book which will be the basis of this essay and through which the major points will be argued. For the author, postmodernism helps recognise the impureness of traditions and dissenting result of the modern project. Moreover, the written style of the book gives the impression of flirtations with a post-modern style. Nevertheless, despite the alleged ability of postmodernism to incorporate dissenting components, the reader is left with some puzzling questions in his mind at the end of the book. Inquiries such as why the author chooses a post modern approach as the most suitable for Latin America or, the intended audience the book was written for?...
Women of the working class influenced by the current welfare structure in Britain
...The structure of the British workplace saw huge changes in the post war decades. Across the nation more and more women were taking up paid employment, many had started working in place of men who had gone off to fight in the war.
They formed a “reserve army of labour” a term derived from the work of Marx which refers to a disadvantaged sector of the workforce who supply labour for a sudden expansion of production in times of economic boom and who can be disposed of easily in times of economic slump. (Hakim 1992)...
Changes in women’s life as a result of Industrial Revolution
...Patriarchy is a social system through which men dominate, exploit and oppress women. However, in recent decades, changes in the economy and society have altered the situation – several of these changes will be outlined below.
One of the most important areas to look at for the changes in women’s lives is in terms of pay and employment relative to men. Women are less likely than men to be in paid employment, but the gap has closed steadily over recent decades. The proportion of those in employment who are women rose from 38.1% in 1971 to 49.6% in 1995. However, most of the increase in women’s employment has been in part time work. The proportion of women working part time has increased steadily, from 34% in 1971 to 47% in 1995...
