Dual-Interval Spaces: Interrelations Between Interval Classes 1 And 5, Local Pitch Centers And Form In Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 12, Tae Young Hong 2015 University of Southern Mississippi

Dual-Interval Spaces: Interrelations Between Interval Classes 1 And 5, Local Pitch Centers And Form In Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 12, Tae Young Hong

Master's Theses

Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Sonata No. 1, written in 1926, is one of his most complex and lengthy works for piano. In contrast to the conservative style used in his critically-acclaimed Symphony No. 1, Op. 10, composed a year earlier, the sonata employs a highly modernistic idiom which predominated the composer’s output in the late 1920’s. The musical surface of the sonata was crafted by an extensive use of interval classes 1 and 5 which serve as the primary means of structuring pitch material.

This paper examines the surface combinations of two interval classes as well as their ...

Behind The Meatball: A Reflection On Italian Cuisine, Lost And Found, Christina DeRay 2015 Seton Hall University

Behind The Meatball: A Reflection On Italian Cuisine, Lost And Found, Christina Deray

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This thesis is a memoir about the lives of the matriarchs of my family: my grandmothers, Carmina and Marie, but in many other ways the memoir becomes a point of entry for a personal essay that explores the culture of authenticity in American cuisine. As a memoir, I offer a personal history of an original Italian cuisine from my very Italian family— how it was transplanted from the European “boot” to American soil, how it flourished through the lessons Carmina taught my family, and how it got transformed when it hit American. I reflect upon the appearance, after the Second ...

Rendering And Compositing For Visual Effects, Jensen Abler

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The methods used to create visual effects for feature film production are quickly evolving. Cutting edge techniques are constantly being improved upon, and the capability to solve unique problems is paramount in real world production. I present a creative project which utilizes novel applications of common techniques, such as projection mapping, multi-tile UV workflows, procedural texture generation, normal mapping, and image based lighting.


“’A Poem Among The Diagrams’”: Poetry As Archival Work In Muriel Rukeyser, Susan Howe, And M. Nourbese Philip, Anne Kingsley 2015 Northeastern University

“’A Poem Among The Diagrams’”: Poetry As Archival Work In Muriel Rukeyser, Susan Howe, And M. Nourbese Philip, Anne Kingsley

English Dissertations

"A Poem Among the Diagrams: Poetry as Archival Work in Muriel Rukeyser, Susan Howe, and M. NourbeSe Philip" presents three case studies of contemporary women poets' sustained interventions in conventional methods of archival recovery. Focusing on Muriel Rukeyser, Susan Howe, and M. NourbeSe Philip, this project seeks to understand how poetry becomes a tool for and critique of academic work in the archives. Each chapter examines how the poet not only intervenes in the reading of manuscripts, but also disrupts the scholarly history around these documents. In doing so, the poets open their archival subjects to new arrangements of form ...

Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés 2015 DIT School of Languges

Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés

Books/Book Chapters

En este artículo se analiza cómo en El bandido doblemente armado de Soledad Puétolas se hace un tributo a El largo adiós de Raymond Chandler.

Marlowe aparecía en El largo adiós como el verdadero protagonista que nos muestra su visión de la realidad más que nunca, permitiéndonos un mayor conocimiento de su interior. Del mismo modo, el narrador de El bandido doblemente armado, consigue una identidad propia al hacer que los encuentros y desencuetros con los otros personajes trasciendan.

El segundo personaje principal en las dos novelas tiene el mismo nombre, Terry Lennox. Si la similitud de los narradores es ...

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De ruysscher 2015 Vrije Universiteit Brussel

A Business Trust For Partnerships? Early Conceptions Of Company-Related Assets In Legal Literature, And Antwerp Forensic And Commercial Practice (Later Sixteenth-Early Seventeenth Century), Dave De Ruysscher

Dave De ruysscher

The Antwerp example demonstrates that in the early modern period entity shielding for partnerships existed in some form by law, and that it was devised in doctrine and the practice of courts rather than in legislation. The affectation of assets for the business venture that did not entail limited liability nonetheless allowed for some separation of personal from partnership-related assets. This innovation, which was devised in doctrine in the early 1600s, was important in a mercantile context in which partnerships with open goals and with active partners or directors engaged in diverse business activities. Yet, according to an older rule ...

What Fanon Said: A Philosophical Introduction To His Life And Thought, Lewis R. Gordon, Sonia Dayan-Herzbrun, Drucilla Cornell

Philosophy

Challenging the notion of theory as white and experience as black, Lewis Gordon here offers a philosophical portrait of the thought and life of the Martinican-turned-Algerian revolutionary psychiatrist and philosopher Frantz Fanon as an example of “living thought” against the legacies of colonialism and racism, and thereby shows the continued relevance and importance of his ideas.

Researching Long Island History During The Ceta Program: How I Became An Archivist, Burt Altman 2015 Florida State University

Researching Long Island History During The Ceta Program: How I Became An Archivist, Burt Altman

Library Faculty Publications

Introduction by John A. Strong Professor Emeritus, Long Island University:

About twenty years ago when I was working with Gaynell Stone on the Suffolk County Archaeological Association series on Long Island Indians she sent me to the Nassau County Parks facility at Sands Point to look at a collection of bibliographic cards that were stored there. Dan Kaplan, a park staff member, ushered me to a big empty library area, seated me at a long table, and brought me several long rectangular boxes filled with hundreds of three by five index cards with writing on both sides. I was amazed ...

Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder 2015 University of Massachusetts

Euphony In Paul: Sound Matters In Romans 1:18–2:29, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

This is an annotated oral reading of the Romans 1:18–2:29, using the phonemic Koine pronunciation promoted by Randall Buth. The oral reading is supplemented by a detailed aural mapping of the text, laid out and formatted somewhat following "Sound Mapping the New Testament" by Lee and Scott. The features discovered here demonstrate that this text is a unified piece, with definite beginning and ending, exhibiting a style distinct from the rest of Romans. The author uses a variety of sound structures, from character level, to syllables, words, and phrases, even sorting a long list by sound. As ...

From Aristotle’S Teleology To Darwin’S Genealogy: The Stamp Of Inutility, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, Forthcoming: February 2015, 208 Pp., Isbn: 9781137445766, Marco Solinas 2015 Florence University

From Aristotle’S Teleology To Darwin’S Genealogy: The Stamp Of Inutility, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, Forthcoming: February 2015, 208 Pp., Isbn: 9781137445766, Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Starting with Aristotle and moving on to Darwin, Marco Solinas outlines the basic steps from the birth, establishment and later rebirth of the traditional view of living beings, and its overturning by evolutionary revolution. The classic framework devised by Aristotle was still dominant in the 17th Century world of Galileo, Harvey and Ray, and remained hegemonic until the time of Lamarck and Cuvier in the 19th Century. Darwin's breakthrough thus takes on the dimensions of an abandonment of the traditional finalistic theory. It was a transition exemplified in the morphological analysis of useless parts, such as the sightless eyes ...
