1. Bush, Travis Jerard. Social Violence in Molly Keane's "The Rising Tide".

Degree: English Department, 2011, Oklahoma State University

The purpose of this study is to examine Molly Keane's novel 'The Rising Tide', approaching it as more than simple farce or satire. Beginning with a brief description of the cultural and historical background of the Anglo-Irish, I analyze Keane's descriptions of specific "Big Houses" and how they act on the thoughts and behaviors of the main characters who live within these estates. I continue to examine how each character is portrayed as a powerless or paralyzed victim within Anglo-Irish culture, something that develops sympathy for the protagonists. I also attempt to illustrate the narrator's role in shaping through her tone and diction the insular lives of the characters and the trivial events of the story into a historical record of Anglo-Irish domestic life. I conclude that the social dynamics of the Anglo-Irish and the cultures of the family estates in 'The Rising Tide' marginalize each of the main characters socially, culturally, or financially. Looking at the text this way leads to a more serious and dramatic interpretation of Molly Keane's novel. I also conclude that the narrator is essential in portraying the events of the novel as sober and tragic through her tone, diction, and, phrasing. Ultimately, Molly Keane and, perhaps, many other Anglo-Irish authors used satire and wit to allow the reader to observe the deeply rooted and often disturbing psychological state of the early twentieth-century Anglo-Irish. Advisors/Committee Members: Walkiewicz, Edward (advisor), Grubgeld, Elizabeth (committee member), Smth, Lindsey (committee member).

2. MacLeod, Suzanne. From the "rising tide" to solidarity: disrupting dominant crisis discourses in dementia social policy in neoliberal times.

Degree: School of Social Work, 2014, University of Victoria

As a social worker practising in long-term residential care for people living with dementia, I am alarmed by discourses in the media and health policy that construct persons living with dementia and their health care needs as a threatening “rising tide” or crisis. I am particularly concerned about the material effects such dominant discourses, and the values they uphold, might have on the collective provision of care and support for our elderly citizens in the present neoliberal economic and political context of health care. To better understand how dominant discourses about dementia work at this time when Canada’s population is aging and the number of persons living with dementia is anticipated to increase, I have rooted my thesis in poststructural methodology. My research method is a discourse analysis, which draws on Foucault’s archaeological and genealogical concepts, to examine two contemporary health policy documents related to dementia care – one national and one provincial. I also incorporate some poetic representation – or found poetry – to write up my findings. While deconstructing and disrupting taken for granted dominant crisis discourses on dementia in health policy, my research also makes space for alternative constructions to support discursive and health policy possibilities in solidarity with persons living with dementia so that they may thrive. Advisors/Committee Members: (advisor), Strega, Susan (supervisor).
