1. DeBrosse, Jim. "Lost in the Master's Mansion": How the Mainstream Media Have Marginalized Alternative Theories of the JFK Assassination.

Degree: PhD, Journalism (Communication), 2014, Ohio University

Despite growing evidence to the contrary over the last fifty years, the mainstream media in America have stubbornly clung to the Warren Commission's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and was himself murdered there two days later by Jack Ruby, who also was acting alone. This dissertation examines the patchwork of misleading, suspect and narrowly selected evidence that supports the Warren Report's theory and then documents via content and textual analyses and in-depth telephone interviews how the mainstream media have marginalized and at times ridiculed critics of the lone gunman theory in book reviews, newspaper columns, magazine articles, TV news broadcasts, and the selection of books for publication. Herman and Chomsky's Propaganda Model of the Mass Media helps explain why the mainstream media, especially its elite newspapers and news magazines, have failed for a half century to delve more deeply into the full range of evidence and connections that appear to underlie a conspiracy in what has been called The Crime of the Century. But the model falls short of explaining why both the media and nearly everyone in the JFK research community have failed to examine the broadest possible set of connections that may include the complicity of the French secret army (OAS), Israeli leaders and the Mossad. To understand "the firewall" that has been built around a full investigation into the Kennedy assassination, one must turn to the theories of Political Correctness and Spiral of Silence. Advisors/Committee Members: Sweeney, Mike (Committee Chair).

2. Taylor, Amber. Ezra Taft Benson and the State of Israel: A Mormon American Leader's Support for the Jewish State.

Degree: 2012, Brandeis University

Within the emergent study of the complex relations between the State of Israel and American Christianity is a little-known story of a Mormon-American leader whose friendship with the nascent Jewish State spanned nearly five decades. Ezra Taft Benson, apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly referred to as Mormons) from 1943-1994, also served as Secretary of Agriculture in President Dwight D. Eisenhower's cabinet from 1953-1961. During that time, and thereafter, he proclaimed his assurance, both to his Mormon followers and to the world, of the State of Israel's miraculous fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Likewise, through his political leadership he created lasting friendships with early Israeli leaders, particularly David Ben Gurion. His interest in the fate of the Jewish people was relatively representative of his Latter-day Saint heritage, but his relationship with Israeli leaders, as well as his consistently zealous message of religious-based support for the State of Israel, made him distinctive among both religious and political leaders of his day.

3. Hilmy, Hanny. Sovereignty, Peacekeeping, and the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), Suez 1956-1967: Insiders’ Perspectives.

Degree: Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, 2015, University of Victoria

This research is concerned with the complex and contested relationship between the sovereign prerogatives of states and the international imperative of defusing world conflicts. Due to its historical setting following World War Two, the national vs. international staking of claims was framed within the escalating imperial-nationalist confrontation and the impending “end of empire”, both of which were significantly influenced by the role Israel played in this saga. The research looks at the issue of “decolonization” and the anti-colonial struggle waged under the leadership of Egypt’s President Nasser. The Suez War is analyzed as the historical event that signaled the beginning of the final chapter in the domination of the European empires in the Middle East (sub-Saharan decolonization followed beginning in the early 1960s), and the emergence of the United States as the new major Western power in the Middle East. The Suez experience highlighted a stubborn contest between the defenders of the concept of “sovereign consent” and the advocates of “International intervention”. Both the deployment of the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) and its termination were surrounded by controversy and legal-political wrangling. The role of UNEF and UN peacekeeping operations in general framed the development of a new concept for an emerging international human rights law and crisis management. The UNEF experience, moreover, brought into sharp relief the need for a conflict resolution component for any peace operation. International conflict management, and human rights protection are both subject to an increasing interventionist international legal regime. Consequently, the traditional concept of “sovereignty” is facing increasing challenge. By its very nature, the subject matter of this multi-dimensional research involves historical, political and international legal aspects shaping the research’s content and conclusions. The research utilizes the experience and contributions of several key participants in this pioneering peacekeeping experience. In the last chapter, recommendations are made –based on all the elements covered in the research- to suggest contributions to the evolving UN ground rules for international crisis intervention and management. Advisors/Committee Members: Blue, Gregory (supervisor), Schmidtke, Oliver (supervisor).
