“Dale Evans: Girlie-Girl With a Six-Gun,” in Westerns: Paperback Novels and Movies from Hollywood, edited by Paul Varner. Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Press, 2007.

In Western films of the 1940s we generally find two types of women: the good girl, pious and genteel, and the bad girl who is far from chaste. There was another model of femininity in the Western, however, and that was provided by Dale Evans. No longer was the cowgirl the backdrop for the heroic cowboy, at least not in the Roy Rogers/Dale Evans movies. In each of the films she made with Rogers, Evans introduced the feminine into a fully masculine world, and by doing so she managed to sublimate the Western’s masculinity and use it to both emphasize and showcase her femininity, a femininity that was never threatened even when she rode and roped and shot her six-guns.

“‘Why doesn’t make any difference. It’s time you moved on faith.’: Detection, Redemption and Saving Grace,” Christianity and the Detective Story, edited by Walter Raubicheck and Anya Morland. Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Press, 2013.

As a member of Oklahoma City’s major case squad, Detective Grace Hanadarko constantly moves through a world of violence, but she speaks eloquently for the dead and works tirelessly for justice. Having lost her Catholic faith as a child, and suffered personal tragedies (some of them self-inflicted), Hanadarko operates purely in the here-and-now in her own life, drinking too much, having an affair with her married partner, and driving too fast. After a terrible accident, God sends Grace a “last chance angel,” a good ol’ boy named Earl, who is there to help bring her back to God. The mysteries that lie at the heart of Saving Grace are twofold: first, each week Grace and her colleagues solve a crime, usually a murder. The story follows the clues as they are unveiled by the detectives and, generally, the mystery is solved at the end of the hour. The second set of mysteries, the metaphysical ones, are not solved so easily. Even after accepting (grudgingly, after much resistance) that Earl is an angel, Grace continues to question the existence of God; and, if he does exists, whether he is benevolent, indifferent, or cruel. This essay examines the ways in which the earthly mysteries, and how they are investigated by Grace, are connected to the metaphysical mysteries with which she and Earl are struggling. For Grace Hanadarko, detection and redemption are inextricably linked, and Earl’s mission, Saving Grace, is vital not only to Grace’s survival, but to that of those around her (possibly even mankind’s) as well.

Coral reefs and their associated ecosystems such as mangroves and seagrass beds are in crisis the world over. They provide billions of dollars of ecosystem services that include fish for human food, protection from hurricane damage, and livelihoods from ecotourists that enjoy snorkelling and/or scuba diving on the coral reefs and in the mangroves. There are measures that people can take that will ensure the survival of these precious ecosystems, which will enhance the quality of not just aquatic life, but of human life as well.

Comic Book Crime:
Truth, Justice, and the American Way

Co-authored with Staci Strobi

Comic Book Crime is a cultural criminological analysis of themes of crime and justice in contemporary American comic books. Through their analysis of over 200 titles and immersion in the comic book fan subculture, the authors explore the ideological orientation of the books as they relate to issues of crime and justice. With a focus on comic books published after 9/11, Phillips and Strobl demonstrate how the rhetoric of retributive justice reverberates through the books and contextualize reader's acceptance and justification of vigilante justice. Their study examines how fans make meaning from the powerful ideological messages about what motivates crime. In their analysis, Phillips and Strobl show how race, gender, and sexual orientation are used to construct difference, and conclude that comic books should be taken seriously as important cultural artifacts that contribute to American ideological identity that often center around ideas of the apocalypse, utopia, retribution, and nationalism.

Sculpting Doughboys: Memory, Gender and Taste in America’s World War I Memorials

“In an absorbing study…art historian Jennifer Wingate examines the cultural, political, and economic forces that gave shape to these monuments. She highlights the opportunities that war commemoration offered to immigrant sculptors, outsiders to the artistic elite, and she reveals the hitherto unacknowledged contributions of women artists. Doughboy statues, we learn, memorialize much more than American service in the Great War: etched in their designs are national anxieties about race, masculinity, and political radicalism, as well as warring notions of who should define aesthetic standards for public commemoration.” –Steven Trout, author of On the Battlefield of Memory: The First World War and American Remembrance(Ashgate, 2013)

The Silver Lining of Project Uncertainties

Co-authored with Dr. Thomas Lechler and Ting Gao

This book provides readers with a critical foundation for how to differentiate the management of project risks and uncertainties, how to differentiate project success from project value and how to clearly identify the key elements of project risk, uncertainty and value opportunity. Based on case studies, this research is summarized for practical use by project managers, their teams and senior management. (2013)

Managing Creativity Efficiently in Filming: Consequences for Project Management
(Conference Presentation: 29th European Group for Organizational Studies Colloquium, 2013, Montreal, Canada)

Co-authored with Dr. Thomas Lechler

The film industry is predicated to successfully overcome the “creativity-efficiency paradox” and provides a rich source of examples as to how these two conflicting challenges can be managed with the least restriction to the creative process and with the least impact to efficiency in terms of time and expense. In this study we explore the making of independent films and demonstrate that classic project management could adopt some of the general best practices. Several in depth interviews with filmmakers of independent films were conducted and the results clearly demonstrate that classic project management could benefit from incorporating some of the practices and experiences of film production in coping with the C-E paradox.

Interfaces and Interphases in Analytical Chemistry

Edited by Robin Helburn and Mark Vitha

An interfacial layer and the chemistry that occurs there are at the heart of many analytical methods and techniques. From electrochemical sensing to chromatography to analyses based on surface spectroscopy, interfaces are where the critical chemistry in the method takes place. In this book, we look at ten diverse examples of interfaces and interphases, new and old, in which the authors design, build, characterize, or use an analytically relevant interfacial system. (2011)

Dominican Migration: Transnational Perspectives

Co-authored with Ernesto Sagas

The collection of articles in this book examines the migration of people from the Dominican Republic as a global, transnational phenomenon. Dominicans have been migrating massively over the last fifty years to the United States and other global destinations such as Spain, Italy and countries in Latin America. The questions: what has fueled the migration of Dominicans? And what is the nature of this massive movement of people? are answered by examining Dominican migration through the lens of transnationalism theory. This interdisciplinary work analyzes the Dominican diaspora as a multifaceted, global phenomenon, in which more often than not, Dominican transmigrants live, work, and participate in two or more societies. Dominican transmigrants create social networks which may extend over several regions of the United States, the Dominican Republic, and other foreign nations. The end result is people in a constant flux, where transnational practices and patterns are re-recreated out of the transmigratory experience. (University Press of Florida, 2004)

The Faces Behind Madame Alexander’s Dolls: A Dominican Labor Experience.

Gratereaux, Molina and Rodriguez (Cayena Publications, 2010)

Naturalism in Cuban Novels. University Press of America, 2001.

This book examines the term “naturalism” from a cultural, social, and political perspective. It shows that Cuban writers appropriated the European aesthetic to develop it into an ideology that dominated Cuban narrative for decades and how it evolved into a characteristically Cuban form of artistic expression. Drawing on modern studies about naturalism, it focuses on the unique characteristic of Cuban naturalism and its influence on early twentieth-century Cuban society.

Escritoras dominicanas a la deriva: marginación, dolor y resistencia

Escritoras dominicanas a la deriva: Marginación, dolor y resistencia reúne artículos y entrevistas que abordan temas sobre la mujer y, en particular, la mujer dominicana. Desde diferentes acercamientos críticos y académicos, los ensayos analizan aquellas situaciones y condiciones escasamente planteadas por la crítica dominicana. La narrativa y la poesía son los géneros puestos a debate. El volumen estudia la obra de un grupo de escritoras dominicanas de diferentes generaciones, antecedentes y formación. Las diversas escrituras se caracterizan por la búsqueda, la valoración y la aceptación de la condición de mujer en una sociedad plagada por una ideología patriarcal, una moralidad demagógica y la alienación de las mujeres. Estas escritoras han sido marginadas e ignoradas por la sociedad a la que pertenecen y, en consecuencia, permanecen desconocidas para muchos en su propio país y en el exterior, excepto la figura de Julia Álvarez, de mayor proyección mediática.

Dominican Women Writers on the Edge: Alienation, Pain and Resistance is composed of articles and interviews dealing with a variety of issues that affect the life of women in general, but particularly, Dominican women. The essays, which represent varied scholarly and critical approches, analyze situations and conditions rarely discussed by Dominican critics. The literary genres treated are narrative and poetry. This anthology studies the writings of a group of Dominican women writers of different generations, social backgrounds and careers. The writings are characterized by the search, value and acceptance of being a woman in a society plagued with patriarchal ideology, demagogy morality and alienation of women. These women writers have been marginalized and ignored by their society and consequently remain unknown by may in their own country and abroad, except for Julia Alvarez.
