Congratulations to UI&U graduate Jeannie Carlisle (ECL, 2011), whose dissertation was one of six (6) finalists out of 109 submissions for the annual Frederic M. Jablin Doctoral Dissertation Award presented each year at ILA in partnership with the Jepson School of Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond. Jeannie’s dissertation committee was chaired by Dr. Diane Allerdyce and co-chaired by Dr. Richard Couto. Chris Hables Gray was the third member of the committee. Although the dissertation, “Imperial Cowboy: Theodore Roosevelt and the Militarization of America,” was not the final winner of the Jablin award, its selection for as a finalist is a great honor and speaks to its exemplary quality.
Jeannie is currently a partner and associate editor of Integral Leadership Review and Integral Publishers. Her workkeeps her connected with both the applied practice and the theoretical understanding of leadership worldwide. Her first book, The Cowboy and the Canal: How Theodore Roosevelt Cheated Nicaragua, Stole Panama, and Bamboozled America, will be available Summer 2014.
In January 2014, Jeannie will be launching “The More Things Change,” a blog exploring the historical underpinnings of many of today’s issues–such as racism, gender identity, prison reform, veterans policy, and mental illness– along with interviews of leaders who are working within those domains to make a positive change.
Jeannie Carlisle is the kind of scholar of whom the Cohort Ph.D. Program in Interdisciplinary is honored to count among our graduates!
Below is a link to an August 23, 2013 newspaper article about a community garden project by the Greater St. Matthew A.M.E. Church in Lorain, Ohio. This communal project is spearheaded by Pastor Angela Walker-Dudley, who is currently completing her dissertation project at Union Institute & University.
“The model I am developing is a combination of the things I have been reading about the distributive justice strain in cosmopolitan theory, which aligns closely with some of Dr. King’s statements regarding the Great World House,” Angela explained in a recent email. “At my first residency in 2009, the MLK session included a piece about food justice around the world. I didn’t get the connection then but I do now because of the current work in my community, which is 40 percent minority and highly impoverished. The majority of the volunteers in the garden are ex convicts who cannot find employment. I am currently working on a way to make this project and their work in it a paid position, building their skills and credibility to position them for employment at a higher level for lack of better terminology.”
Serving as Angela’s dissertation chair, I felt compelled to share this example of her outstanding community work with the rest of you.

Estelle Freedman: Redefining Rape – Sexual Violence in the Era of Suffrage and Segregation
Location: New York, United States
Lecture Date: 2013-09-11 (in 27 days)
Date Submitted: 2013-08-12
Announcement ID: 205820
In Redefining Rape, Professor Estelle Freedman of Stanford University explores not only the ways in which rape has defined citizenship throughout American history but also how aspiring citizens have tried, repeatedly, to redefine rape. Long before second-wave feminists adopted an anti-rape platform, generations of women’s rights and racial-justice advocates rejected the narrow understanding of rape as a brutal attack on a chaste, unmarried, white woman by a stranger, often depicted as a black man.
Freedman shows how these critiques exposed the ways that white men’s freedom to be sexually coercive or violent lay at the heart of their political power. The modern civil rights and feminist movements, she points out, continue to grapple with both the insights and the dilemmas of these first campaigns to redefine rape in American law and culture.
