1. Westfall, Heather. The Meaning Of A Moment : An Analysis Of The Photomicrographs Of Dr. Max Poser In Response To Their Physical Location And Trajectory.

Degree: 2012, Ryerson University

Dr. Max Poser was a researcher, scientist, and lecturer in the fields of ophthalmology and physiological optics at the New York based optics company, Bausch & Lomb. This thesis examines a group of his silver gelatin photographs located at George Eastman House and compares this series of 1930s photomicrographs to other images by Dr. Poser at the Bausch & Lomb archive. This thesis contextualizes the photographs within the history of photomicrography, the biography of Dr. Poser, and his work at Bausch & Lomb to understand why these photographs were made. Several of these photomicrographs were exhibited and published before arriving at the museum, and these frameworks show how the usage of a photograph can change how it is understood. Finally, the thesis examines the physical locations where each of the objects is kept and how those locations generate different connotations that reflect the mission of each institution. Advisors/Committee Members: Allen, Jamie M. (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).

2. Peterson, Nicholas L. A RIP IN THE SOCIAL FABRIC: REVOLUTION, INDUSTRIAL WORKERS OF THE WORLD, AND THE PATERSON SILK STRIKE OF 1913 IN AMERICAN LITERATURE, 1908-1927.

Degree: PhD, 2011, Temple University

English

In 1913, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led a strike of silk workers in Paterson, New Jersey. Several New York intellectuals took advantage of Paterson's proximity to New York to witness and participate in the strike, eventually organizing the Paterson Pageant as a fundraiser to support the strikers. Directed by John Reed, the strikers told their own story in the dramatic form of the Pageant. The IWW and the Paterson Silk Strike inspired several writers to relate their experience of the strike and their participation in the Pageant in fictional works. Since labor and working-class experience is rarely a literary subject, the assertiveness of workers during a strike is portrayed as a catastrophic event that is difficult for middle-class writers to describe. The IWW's goal was a revolutionary restructuring of society into a worker-run co-operative and the strike was its chief weapon in achieving this end. Inspired by such a drastic challenge to the social order, writers use traditional social organizations – religion, nationality, and family – to structure their characters' or narrators' experience of the strike; but the strike also forces characters and narrators to re-examine these traditional institutions in regard to the class struggle.
