1. Vieira Avendaño, Carla Catherine. Addressing the different information needs of diverse visitors to Arthur’s Pass National Park .

Degree: 2012, University of Otago

The New Zealand landmass encompasses a vast diversity of wilderness areas, including fourteen national parks and other conservation lands. These natural environments attract a large number of domestic and international visitors, who consult a many different sources of on-line and printed information before and during their visit. However, these resources are usually designed to suit a generic visitor, and take no account of the different needs and expectation of diverse individuals. In this thesis, I investigate the use of information resources by different users groups as categorized by the Wilderness Perception Scaling (WPS) method. I begin with a review of relevant studies and statistics relating to domestic and international visitors’ experiences of the New Zealand wilderness. I then report on the results of my direct observations of visitors to three destinations, and I discuss the findings that I gathered from surveys that I conducted in two of these locations. This work includes pilot studies of two sites — the Catlins Conservation Park and the Orokonui Ecosanctuary — and a more detailed study of Arthur’s Pass National Park. Following a discussion of my observations and findings, I argue for a redesign of the Department of Conservation (DOC) Website, and I present sketch ideas for a new site that is informed by mobile media interface designs. This work hints at future possibilities for smartphone applications. I conclude that current technologies allow us to address the needs and expectations of different visitors to wilderness areas. Furthermore, I argue that mobile media can enable individuals to create and share, as well as download and use, information resources that address their various and different requirements. I conclude that, if we want younger people to engage with wilderness environments, we should be using the technologies that they are using. Advisors/Committee Members: McGuire, Mark (advisor).

2. Brown, Aubrey E. A Palace for the Poor: The Knox County Infirmary and Nineteenth Century Social Reform in Rural Ohio.

Degree: MAin History, Department of Humanities, 2013, Youngstown State University

During the nineteenth century, middle- and upper-class citizens often viewed poverty as a form of moral delinquency among members of the working class rather than as an economic imbalance influenced by the rise of industrialization. The poorhouse, sometimes called an almshouse, poor farm, poor asylum, and later infirmary or city/county home, is one among a small variety of formal, legal institutions of social reform created to manage those individuals who consciously or unconsciously digressed from the “normal” social order of the working class. The Knox County, Ohio welfare system of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries stands as an exemplary model of rural self-reliance and community preservation. The Knox County Infirmary served as a centralized location to provide relief and general care to the poor, physically disabled, elderly, widowed, orphaned, and even mentally ill of the county. What may have started as a means of separating the social classes, by the mid-nineteenth century it functioned more as a means of unifying citizens of Knox County in combatting the threat of industrialization to its traditional, agricultural roots. It was also a struggle between self and collective identities. Advisors/Committee Members: Pallante, Martha (Advisor).
