Geekreformation.Com, Jacob Leonhardt

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

Several years back, my best friend and I were discussing how there seemed to be no outlets for Christian geeks to enjoy being geeks without having to worry about inappropriate content. As there did not seem to be a place, we thought we should make one. Fast-forward to my senior year at Western Kentucky University, I am an Interactive Design major, and my friend has graduated with a degree in Film and Marketing; and what was once just conversation has now become a reality. This work explains what Geek Reformation is and how we went about branding and designing it ...

Ant Tribe, Yan Zhao 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Ant Tribe, Yan Zhao

Yan Zhao

"Ant Tribe" describes the post-80s generation university graduates who live together in poor conditions without social security in communities around China's major metropolises. They dream of a better life in big cities but struggle with low-paying jobs. These struggling "elites" have become the fourth weak social group, after peasants, migrant workers and unemployed people. The reason why these college graduates are compared to ants is that they are like ants: clever, hardworking, politically weak and living in groups. The real world is always different from the ideal world of the "Ant Tribe" in China. They often lose their purposes ...

Hidden Wku: Abstract Photography As A Tool For Discovery, Logan Houchens

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

As Western Kentucky University has become a larger and more professional international school, its outward appearances have been polished to be more attractive. This creative research project focuses on appreciating the stark contrasts, visual characteristics, and beautifully authentic areas of campus that have persisted through this systematic cleaning. The result is a “reverse showcase” of the university, which aims to appreciate what is not normally considered to be attractive or worthy of attention. This project was created through the medium of abstract photography resulting in a collection of images that focus on unusual textures, colors, and shapes. These images will ...

First-Gen Voices: Creative and Critical Narratives on the First-Generation College Experience

First To Go Abroad" is a partnership between the Loyola Marymount University First To Go Program, LMU Study Abroad, and the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), which seeks to increase study abroad opportunities for first-generation college students. In May 2017, fifteen first-gen students and two first-gen faculty mentors traveled together to Santiago, Dominican Republic, where they spent ten days exploring the country and learning about the local cultures, customs, and histories of the people who call the DR home.

Travel is a privilege not all students have the same access to; for some students, this trip was the first ...


Les Recueils D'Ornements Latino-Américains. Instrumentalisations Nationales Et Internationales (1923 - 1947), élodie vaudry 2017 Université Paris-Nanterre

Les Recueils D'Ornements Latino-Américains. Instrumentalisations Nationales Et Internationales (1923 - 1947), Élodie Vaudry

Artl@s Bulletin

L'étude des recueils d'ornements latino-américains publiés au cours de la première moitié du xxe siècle propose une nouvelle lecture de l'indigénisme et une approche spécifique des processus de resémantisation des motifs précolombiens à l'époque contemporaine. Cette analyse permet de cerner la volonté des gouvernements d'Amérique latine d’établir un socle culturel national mais aussi continental et de les étudier comme une des manifestations plastiques des processus indigénistes. Ce sujet tente de montrer, par le biais de l’ornement, les dynamiques communes et l’hybridation diachronique et diasporique de la culture visuelle latino-américaine.

Exploration Of Body-To-Pattern Shape And Measurement Relationships For Women's Trouser Patterns Found In Usa And Uk Pattern Drafting Methods: Implications For Garment Fit, Ellen Mckinney, Simeon Gill

Ellen C. McKinney

Block patterns should accurately reflect the measurements and shape of the individual human form used in their origination to achieve well fitted garments, however, pattern drafting often uses only limited surface measurements and therefore may not be suitably developed to reflect individual forms. Two methods of block drafting (Aldrich, 2008; Joseph-Armstrong, 2010) were selected for investigation of the resultant measurement relationships (ease) and shape relationships between the leg form and drafted trouser patterns
