1. Courtney, Chloë L. Arts of Resistance: Ecologic History and Contemporary Interventions in the Valley of Mexico.

Degree: UNM Department of Art and Art History, 2018, University of New Mexico

This thesis analyzes two contemporary artworks concerning Mexico City’s complex socio-ecologic history: the installation The Return of a Lake (2012), by Maria Thereza Alves, and the performance Plan Acalote (2015) by the collective Plan Acalli (Carlos Huitzil and Ehecatl Morales). Mexico City faces land subsidence, flooding, and water shortages. Systemic power imbalances and ongoing efforts to transform a wetland landscape to a city conforming to Eurocentric ideals concentrate these problems in marginal communities. Using strategies of eco-criticism, decolonial thought, and performance studies, I argue that The Return of a Lake and Plan Acalote link broad social and ecologic problems with the daily realities of Mexico City’s inhabitants, restructure perceptions of urban space, and forge community solidarity, imagining future environmental justice in the Valley of Mexico. Both artworks connect with local communities, creating reciprocal relationships. I consider how these relationships demonstrate art’s capacity to reframe discourses of urbanity and the environment. Further, I analyze The Return of a Lake’s use of indigenous cosmology to connect today’s struggle for justice with colonial history. Finally, I address the importance of the bodily experience of urban space, and mourning as a response to environmental devastation. Plan Acalote and The Return of a Lake demonstrate that when community-based artworks are rooted in networks of solidarity honoring local histories of injustice and resistance, they offer new ways of seeing and thinking about extraction and predatory development in colonized places, and support collective efforts toward environmental justice and local autonomy.

2. Plascak, Jesse John. Disparities of Invasive Cervical Cancer Incidence and Related Factors in Ohio: An Integrated Approach.

Degree: PhD, Public Health, 2013, The Ohio State University

Despite reductions overall, socioeconomic and geographic disparities of invasive cervical cancer incidence (ICCI) persist. Elevated rates of ICCI within Central Appalachia have remained for decades. The goals of this research were to theoretically integrate current knowledge of the causes of socioeconomic disparities with the causes of ICCI disparities within Central Appalachia, to describe the multilevel and spatial characteristic of ICCI in Ohio, and to investigate relationships between sociopolitical, economic, and biobehavioral factors together with the prevalence of cervical abnormalities.Ecosocial theory posits that population patterns of health are consequences of historically interacting, social, economic and political processes. Literature searches of various databases, directories, and websites was conducted to integrate the current understanding of the processes contributing to both socioeconomic and ICCI disparities within Central Appalachia. Individual-level demographic and ICCI data from the Ohio Cancer Incidence Surveillance System were used to describe the multilevel and spatial characteristics of ICCI. Area-level data were gathered for census tract- school district- and county-levels from various Federal and State sources. Hierarchical logistic regression models were used to investigate variation of ICCI at individual- and area-levels. Spatial data analysis techniques described the spatial variation of ICCI at each level and quantified the degree and location of clustering.Individual-level data from the Community, Awareness, Resources and Education Project were used to investigate the relationships between sociopolitical, economic, and biobehavioral factors together with the prevalence of cervical abnormalities. Area-level data were gathered for from various Federal and State sources. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to investigate relationships between several latent variables. Mediating effects were also investigated.Ecosocial theory suggests that relationships may exist between historically dependent sociopolitical (i.e., land-use/land-tax policy, public education funding), environmental (i.e., rurality), built environment (i.e., physical activity facilities), socioeconomic factors (i.e., community resources, individual-level SEP), and ICCI or ICCI -related factors (i.e., HPV infection and persistence, tobacco use) in Central Appalachia. Multilevel analysis indicates that county-level teen birth rate and percent without health insurance, and school district-level childhood poverty were associated with increased odds of ICCI, while county-level Chlamydia rate, school district-level taxable land value per a pupil, and census tract-level SEP were associated with decreased odds of ICCI. The spatial distribution of school district-level ICCI changed with model covariate adjustment. Less than 4.3% of ICCI variation was due to area-level factors. SEM analysis indicated positive relationships between risky sexual behavior and HPV infection and persistence and cervical abnormalities; negative… Advisors/Committee Members: Paskett, Electra (Advisor).
