Biological and Ethical Considerations of Subsistence Harvest
Date of Award
Subsistence harvest of several wildlife species typically allows a particular subset of individuals to harvest species that are otherwise protected. Although these harvests are an important aspect of certain cultures, are harmful, such as texting and driving. As the world moves at a faster pace with information always available, the idea of efficiency has become ingrained in people. Students keep up with school, work, personal relationships, family and more using their devices to contact those they may not have time to see, or can replace spending time with someone by talking on the phone. Isolation and the Victorian Female Artist: The Double Edge of Necessary Solitude By: Isabella Guyton This project is an examination of the woman artist in Victorian era literature. In both poetry and fiction, the Victorian woman artist is often alone, existing in a physical and social separateness from society. The Victorian woman artist’s isolation is often necessary for her professional success, as in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë; however, as detailed in works like Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market”, being alone leaves women vulnerable to forces that may deal them harm. This connection in many Victorian texts between the solitary woman and the artist characterizes gender roles of the time. By revealing the role of isolation in the experience of women artists, these Victorian texts serve to highlight the ways that going against the hegemonic ideals of the time can both empower and disenfranchise women. This investigation of gender roles and isolation can even be seen today, as isolated women continue to feel the same pressures that existed for the women within these Victorian texts. ~~~ Biological and Ethical Considerations of Subsistence Harvest By: Emma Hazen Subsistence harvest of several wildlife species typically allows a particular subset of individuals to harvest species that are otherwise protected. Although these harvests are an important aspect of certain cultures, they simultaneously could be damaging to both the wildlife population and the consumer. Conversely, harvests may play a valuable role in controlling nuisance wildlife populations in areas where the majority of predators have been removed. The potential issues surrounding subsistence harvests are complex, with humans attempting to manage wildlife populations as a public resource while simultaneously permitting exceptions by select groups of peoples.
