1. Aslam, Feriyal Amal. Choreographing [in] Pakistan: Indu Mitha, Dancing Occluded histories in "The Land of the Pure".

Degree: Culture & Performance Studies, 2012, UCLA

This critical biography of Indu Mitha, a Pakistani dancer and choreographer, lays out an alternate, creative history of sixty-four years of post-Partition Pakistan. Her life and work enable choreographing an occluded space on stage and beyond, which I call space of hope  – a space of alterity, a place where narratives countering the nation state boundaries enforced by the 1947 Partition of British India into the three independent states of Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh (1971). This space is not a post-colonial one, but is based on a longer shared historical specificity of South Asia. Indu Mitha's life and work enable this journey into occluded spaces, into an alternate history of sixty-four years of post-Partition Pakistan. These spaces of hope are foci to probing broader questions about the place of the outliers, i.e. Muslims in India, and non-Muslims and "non-Pakistanis" in Pakistan (Post 1971), in the aftermath of the 1947 Partition of India. This dissertation stages the untold history of these minority voices of classical dancers and musicians in Pakistan, and in the process questions whether their marginal statuses are due to factors connected to the aftermath of Partition, or to a redundant pre-colonial baggage, or both.By taking a creative approach to writing a shared history of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh beyond Partition, this dissertation presents controversial, contested histories that are closer to the ground realities of people in the region. Methodology involved triangulating Indu's bharata natyam, kathak and Uday Shankar choreographies with her life history, parallel to key moments of South Asian history from the early twentieth century to the first decade of the twenty-first century. This new "creative approach" brings together, for the first time, cutting edge work in the fields of post-colonial histories and Partition aftermath studies with dance history scholarship, in particular critical bharata natyam studies. This project uses the rich lyric mode and story-telling tradition of bharata natyam, syncrethic aspects of kathak, and the creative style of Indu's Uday Shankar repertoire to narrate alternative histories that have been silenced and/or ignored in official narratives. These histories call for a rethinking of the occluded inclusive and secular vision of founding father Jinnah as protector-general of the minorities.

2. [No author]. The Journey of Men in Nursing: A Critical Ethnography .

Degree: University of Texas Medical Branch – Galveston

Patient health outcomes are linked to the quality of nursing care, which in turn is linked to adequacy of nurse staffing. Changing population and nurse demographics are anticipated to exacerbate the current nursing shortage. Men are underrepresented in nursing, and enhanced recruitment of men has been identified as a possible solution to the shortage. Research has suggested that men face gender-specific challenges in nursing and other gender-atypical occupations, which may influence the low recruitment and high turnover of male nurses. The study employed critical ethnography, as described by Thomas (1993), to explore and describe how others perceive men in nursing and how gender may influence men when choosing their career paths. For this study, nine male nurses who practiced at the bedside were interviewed. Data were obtained using a bio-demographic questionnaire, semi-structured interviews, and participant observation. Data were analyzed using a modified version of Carspecken’s (1996) six-step coding method. Measures to ensure study rigor and trustworthiness included credibility, fittingness, and auditability (Beck, 1993; Lincoln & Guba, 1985). Findings revealed that men in nursing experience gender-specific challenges during three timeframes: choosing to become a nurse, becoming a nurse, and being a nurse. During the first timeframe, choosing to become a nurse, the men decided whether nursing was a fitting profession for them. Three factors positively affected men’s decisions to become nurses: a) exposures to nurses, especially males; b) understanding the benefits of a career in nursing; and c) support from family and friends. Social influences, such as stereotypes about nursing and men in nursing, negatively impacted men’s decisions to become a nurse. During the second timeframe, becoming a nurse, the participants’ primary focus was to survive the often rigorous nursing program. Participants experienced both supportive and stereotypic responses to their career choice, and they began to learn ways in which to process stereotypic responses. Although the men continued to experience gender-specific challenges during the third timeframe, being a nurse, they felt confident and comfortable with themselves as men and as nurses. Study findings have implications for the recruitment and retention of men in nursing, nursing practice, nursing education, and theory development.
