Do Gender Differences in Undergraduate Engineering Orientations Persist when Major is Controlled?
Harriet Hartman,Moshe Hartman
International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology , 2009,
Abstract: The question posed in this paper is how persistent are gender differences in engineering orientation and achievement, once we control for engineering discipline, cohort, and year in the program. The data come from a multi-year survey of engineering students at a mid-Atlantic public university, which has four engineering disciplines: chemical, civil/environmental, electrical/computing,and mechanical, which vary by proportion of women in them. Using multivariate analysis, we control for gender, cohort, year in the program, and major in the analysis of differences in engineering self-confidence, satisfaction with the core course and interpersonal climate, engineering grades, expectations from the undergraduate degree and long-term commitment to a career in engineering.We then are able to isolate the significant gender differences and interaction effects that persist when these other factors are held constant. We find that gender clearly matters with respect to engineering grades, self-confidence, satisfaction with the core course, and commitment to the engineering career, even when major, year, and cohort (and grades, for all of the other dependent variables) are controlled. However, gender differences with regard to peer integration are insignificant; and there are few remaining gender differences with regard to expectations from an engineering degree. Suggestions for further research are proposed.
A Thermodynamic Model for the Global Economy and Its Implications for Macroeconomic Theory and Policy Formulation  [PDF]
Stephen J. Palmer, Harriet Alford
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.812173
Abstract: Over recent decades the share of income produced by global the economy has increased for capital and decreased for labour. Picketty’s analysis of wealth and income data implies that there is increasing inequality in income share developing in economies including advanced economies. Further investigation by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) confirms that capital’s share of income is increasing versus labour’s share but the data does not fit with Picketty’s r > g growth model, instead indicating that technology is involved. This paper presents a physical model concept for an economy and the global economy that explains how and why capital’s share of income is increasing at the expense of labour and what policymakers need to do to adjust this trend. The macroeconomic policies that correct this trend have also significant concomitant benefits—they address strategic risks such as global warming which are physically linked by the way the economy currently functions through technology. Current policy is driving and increasing income inequality. Physical evidence based macroeconomic policymaking such as that advocated in this paper, can manage these long term risks.
Bernardo Atxaga, Obabakoak
Harriet Hulme
Opticon1826 , 2011, DOI: 10.5334/opt.101110
Abstract: In 1992, Bernardo Atxaga’s Obabakoak, a collection of short stories about a mythical village in the Basque Country, was translated into English, to great acclaim. Nearly twenty years later, in January 2011, the announcement of a ceasefire by Basque Separatist group ETA has led to a number of articles, each accompanied by a picture of three masked figures, fists raised, in front of a poster emblazoned with ETA’s motto, Bietan Jarrai (“Keep up on both”). While the ‘mythology’ of this image concentrates and accentuates elements of violence and hostility, Obabakoak offers a different perspective, one which encourages us, as readers, to look beyond the masks.

Dilmun revisited: excavations at Saar, Bahrain
Harriet Crawford
Archaeology International , 1997, DOI: 10.5334/ai.0111
Abstract: About 2000 BC the island of Bahrain was at the centre of a prosperous trading community - the Early Dilmun civilization - that stretched from Mesopotamia to the Indus Valley. Excavations at the site of Saar have, since 1989, recovered much new information about the layout of the settlement and its local economy and social system.

‘[...] in all respects as if she were a feme sole’: married women’s long road to a legal existence
Harriet Clements
Skepsi , 2011,
Abstract: Looking back from our vantage point in the second decade of the twenty-first century, we may all too easily be distracted by the high-profile campaign for women’s suffrage that occupied the years before the Great War and forget that the feminist movement began at least half a century earlier. In the mid-1850s a campaign began which would improve the lot of all women in years to come, although it addressed an issue which at the time only affected a proportion, albeit a sizeable one, of adult women. The hardship that it addressed was one that married women suffered through the operation of the common law maxim enunciated by Bracton in the thirteenth century but already long established, that ‘vir et uxor sunt quasi unica persona’, and reiterated by Blackstone five centuries later in the words ‘[b]y marriage, husband and wife are one person in law’.The article briefly explains the effect at law of this maxim and the steps taken by equity to mitigate it, before charting the progress of the campaign to redress the position. This campaign began not long after Barbara Leigh Smith published her booklet A Brief Summary in Plain Language of the Most Important Laws concerning Women together with a Few Observations thereon in 1854 and culminated in the Married Women’s Property Act 1882. However, as the article will demonstrate, there still remained some unfinished business so far as the legal status of the married woman was concerned which would not be resolved until well into the next century.
