Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn

Exhibition Catalogs

"Emigdio Vasquez created artwork that challenged Orange County’s more prominent narrative of wealthy beachside neighborhoods. He painted the brown bodies and brown histories that defined our earliest communities and economy... Vasquez produced much of the local art history that Orange County should be known for and should protect. It is with this perspective that Chapman University is proud to present the exhibition, My Barrio: Emigdio Vasquez and Chicana/o Identity in Orange County, in conjunction with the Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative. We hope to initiate discourse not only about Vasquez’s prolific career, but also about ...

Graphic Language In The Library: A Visual Glossary Of Information Literacy Terms, Gayle Schaub, Vinicius Lima, Stephen Dobrzynski, Jacob Luet, Micah Martin, Carissa Storms 2017 Grand Valley State University

Graphic Language In The Library: A Visual Glossary Of Information Literacy Terms, Gayle Schaub, Vinicius Lima, Stephen Dobrzynski, Jacob Luet, Micah Martin, Carissa Storms

Open Teaching Tools

Understanding a discipline requires a fundamental understanding of its terminology. The terminology of information literacy, used by librarians and professors, comprises a language integrated within all disciplines. Critical to academic success, it’s often assumed to be widely understood by students.

The students of Graphic Arts V, fall 2016, created a visual glossary to help students learn this critical terminology. This bold, eye-catching informational campaign, produced and disseminated in and outside of the Library, promotes learning through innovative designs created by students for students. The materials, introduced in a 2017 ACRL presentation, Warning! This Program Contains Graphic Content: Facilitating Understanding ...

Sonifying Hamlet, Ashleigh Cassemere-Stanfield 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Sonifying Hamlet, Ashleigh Cassemere-Stanfield

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Sonifying Hamlet uses data-mining techniques and algorithmic composition to read Shakespeare's Hamlet through sound. In so doing, it attends to pre-semantic, textual data that is only visible when one steps back from reading for narrative and instead focuses on formal details that, being individually small, but collectively numerous, are more visible to computational sorting than they are to human eyes that have been trained to look for broad semantic content. This use of algorithmically generated sound to reconstruct textual data continues the western trend towards ubiquitous quantification, while also challenging that trend's underlying assumption that reality is reducible ...


Never Forgets: Traumatic Trace Within Public Space, Jan Descartes 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Never Forgets: Traumatic Trace Within Public Space, Jan Descartes

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This paper will interrogate the ways in which ephemera from events affects the human and non- human environment and how the absence, manipulation or presence of traumatic trace weaves itself into the atmosphere of the past, present and future. It will look at space and the ways that trace manifests itself in hierarchal spaces and Lebbeus Woods’ concept of heterarchial spaces, which are organic and/or horizontally organized. A thread throughout is the question that if trace from trauma can exist in the visual field, i.e. the physical or digital landscape, in a way that maintains a discourse without ...

The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

An overemphasis on exams or tests marks the present educational scenario in India (Majumdar & Mooij, 2011; Mehrotra, 2007) and the United States (Eisner, 2002; Noddings, 2003; Pinar, 2004; Schubert, 2010). The mainstream schooling system in India disregards the student’s individual needs, abilities, and lived realities (Sarangapani, 2003; Thapan, 2015). My experience of schooling in a mainstream school in India was marked by a sense of monotony, boredom, disengagement, and drudgery. The search for a pedagogical site where the students’ experiences differ from mine motivates this research.

The Learning Home, an alternative school in Pune, India, is a pedagogical site where every ...

The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson 2017 The University of Western Ontario

The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Rationality points to the complete annihilation and end of a life when the body perishes, and yet when a loved one dies we continue to experience that person in a myriad of ways. The focus of this thesis will be a phenomenological exploration of the earthly afterlife of those we have loved and lost. By positing the subject as always intersubjective and as temporal in nature, this thesis will investigate how we continue to create and interact with the deceased upon the earth. In the introduction, this work will be placed in the context of the phenomenological tradition. The first ...
