1. Watkins, Bradley J. Beleaguered resonance: Loyalist entrenchment and division in the early troubles, 1963–1985.

Degree: MA, History and Philosophy, 2015, Eastern Michigan University

Taking as a starting point the framework that the Northern Ireland Troubles were largely fought on confessional sectarian, ethno-national grounds, this essay will analyze the internal and external forces that incited Ulster Protestant political responses from the premiership of Terence O’Neill, beginning in 1963, to the 1985 signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement. Through an extrapolation of socioeconomic class dynamics, and geographical imperatives informed by such source material as population demographics, election results, distribution of political violence, as well as numerous Protestant organizational publications, it is clear that throughout the early Troubles Protestant Northern Ireland increasingly undertook strategies of various modes of political extremism in order maintain their provincial autonomy. Under the constant pressures of drastically reoriented institutional circumstances disputes between elite Protestant politicians, their constituent bodies, and grassroots working class paramilitary bodies emerged as the single largest ideological cleavage that defined the trajectory of Ulster Protestant political action. Advisors/Committee Members: Jesse Kauffman, Ph.D., Chair, Robert Hendershot, Ph.D., John Knight, Ph.D..

2. Penix, Matthew David. The Ottoman Empire in the first world war: A rational disaster.

Degree: MA, History and Philosophy, 2013, Eastern Michigan University

The Ottoman Empire's entry into the First World War in October 1914 represents a break in over a century of diplomacy in the Middle East. Previous study of late Ottoman politics has focused more upon the European states with imperial interests in the Middle East and has not adequately explained why the weak Ottoman state decided to enter the war. This study utilizes both British and German diplomatic documents, along with published secondary works, to reframe the Ottoman entry into the war in a way that highlights Ottoman agency and illuminates the internal and external constraints faced by Ottoman statesmen. The study concludes that the Ottoman Empire entered the war on terms dictated by Istanbul and did so only because Britain, France, and Russia pursued a policy of active hostility to Ottoman interests.
