      Using a postcolonial methodology within a German Cultural Studies framework, this thesis applies a close reading to Uwe Timm’s 1978 novel Morenga and Gerhard Seyfried’s 2003 novel Herero. Both novels narrate the colonial ...
    • The Macroeconomics of Rare Events 

      Olaberria, Eduardo Augusto (2010)
      People in developing countries are more often affected by rare events, such as natural disasters and epidemics, than people in developed nations. Furthermore, the intensity of these events is usually higher in poor countries. ...
    • MACROINVERTEBRATE COMMUNITY STRUCTURE AND ECOLOGICAL FUNCTION IN MARYLAND COASTAL PLAIN STREAMS 

      Baer, Nicholas Arthur (2004-08-17)
      Abiotic conditions within streams, especially those conditions impacted by human activities, often influence the community structure and ecosystem function. While coastal regions have been strongly impacted by urban ...
    • Macroinvertebrate predators and their role in shaping freshwater communities in constructed wetlands 

      Culler, Lauren Elizabeth (2008-07-29)
      The recent increase in the number of wetland construction projects has led to numerous studies investigating the response of the macroinvertebrate community in wetlands. Little is known, however, about the factors structuring ...
    • Macromodeling for Mixed Signal Circuits 

      Chen, Jie (1992)
      Macromodels of functional blocks of VLSI circuits are used to reduce the computational effort involved in the detailed simulation of general-purpose circuits. However the macromodeling approaches in the literature have ...
