Art History And The Global Challenge: A Critical Perspective, Paula Barreiro López 2017 Universitat de Barcelona

Art History And The Global Challenge: A Critical Perspective, Paula Barreiro López

Artl@s Bulletin

The challenge of globalization and the “decolonization” of our way of thinking have become a major concern for most art historians. While it is still too early to assess the impact on the discipline of the “Global turn”—a turn that is all the more timid that it materializes more slowly in public collections and public opinions than in books—we nonetheless wanted to probe scholars who are paying close attention to the new practices in global art history. Coming from different cultural milieus and academic traditions, and belonging to different generations, they agreed to answer our questions, and to ...

Will That Surrogate Do?: Reflections On Material Manuscript Literacy In The Digital Environment From Islamic Manuscripts At The University Of Michigan Library, Evyn C. Kropf 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Will That Surrogate Do?: Reflections On Material Manuscript Literacy In The Digital Environment From Islamic Manuscripts At The University Of Michigan Library, Evyn C. Kropf

Manuscript Studies

The widespread dissemination of digital surrogates for Islamic manuscripts certainly has the potential to impact scholarship both positively and negatively. Realizing a positive impact is contingent on the accessibility and quality of the digital surrogates and the training extended to the scholars working with them. Indeed, while manuscript digital surrogates have the potential to enhance access for those scholars who might otherwise neglect manuscript evidence, they may also enable neglect of material qualities and with them the essential historical context for the content of a codex. This is particularly concerning for the field of Islamic manuscript studies for which so ...


Citation And Alignment: Scholarship Outside And Inside The Codex, Christopher Blackwell, Christine Roughan, Neel Smith 2017 Furman University

Citation And Alignment: Scholarship Outside And Inside The Codex, Christopher Blackwell, Christine Roughan, Neel Smith

Manuscript Studies

We describe a hierarchical approach to modeling text that allows machine-actionable canonical citation of text at many levels of specificity. This model address the problem of overlapping or mutually exclusive analyses. In turn, this flexibility in citation allows rich linking of textual transcriptions and other data to regions-of-interest on digital images, of particular value to codicological and paleographic study. Our examples are from work on Byzantine manuscripts containing Greek epic poetry and scholarly commentary, but our approach can apply to any image-based project in documenting books, manuscripts, inscriptions or other text-bearing surfaces.

Manifesto, Mitch Fraas, William Noel

Manuscript Studies

Manuscript Studies is a new journal that embraces the full complexity of global manuscript studies in the digital age. It has been conceived with four main goals in mind. First, to bridge the gaps between material and digital manuscript research; second, to break down the walls which often separate print and digital publication and serve as barriers between academics, professionals in the cultural heritage field, and citizen scholars; third, to serve as a forum for scholarship encompassing many pre-modern manuscripts cultures—not just those of Europe; and finally to showcase methods and techniques of analysis in manuscript studies that can ...


Clara Lemlich Shavelson: An Activist Life, Sarah B. Cohn 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Clara Lemlich Shavelson: An Activist Life, Sarah B. Cohn

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

Clara Lemlich Shavelson is primarily known for her impassioned speeches during the 1909 Uprising of 20,000. The majority of histories written about her address her involvement in organizing women garment workers in New York’s Lower East Side from her arrival in New York in 1903 up through the eleven-week general strike in 1909. After this, the literature would have you believe she fades into obscurity, for there is only one book that addresses her life post 1909. Shavelson did not give up organizing after 1909. She got married, moved to Brooklyn, and started a family. In Brooklyn, she ...

Beyond The Vale: Visualizing Slavery In Craven County, North Carolina, Marissa N. Kinsey 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Beyond The Vale: Visualizing Slavery In Craven County, North Carolina, Marissa N. Kinsey

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

Beyond the Vale is a data visualization project dedicated to the study of slavery in antebellum North Carolina. Focusing on Gooding’s Township, a rural farming community in the eastern county of Craven, it is designed to address basic questions about the experiences of the county’s antebellum enslaved population. These questions represent points of contention between local heritage narratives and the direct testimonies of former slaves. Where former slaves describe a complex, yet undeniably exploitative system in which they had only minimal control over their own lives, county literature echoes larger themes in North Carolina state scholarship by either ...


Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing And Reception Of Catherine Of Siena, Lisa Tagliaferri 2017 Graduate Center, City University of New York

Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing And Reception Of Catherine Of Siena, Lisa Tagliaferri

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

Lyrical Mysticism: The Writing and Reception of Catherine of Siena (https://caterina.io) affirms the 14th-century mystic Catherine of Siena as a writer through contextualizing her texts among the corpus of contemporary Italian literature, and studying her reception in the Renaissance period of Italy and England. Joining an increasing body of recent meaningful scholarship that has been making significant progress to recover many overlooked and peripheral female voices of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, this work serves to fully assert Catherine as a writer of work that is literarily significant and worthy of textual analysis alongside contemporary male Italian ...

Your Abjection Is In Another Castle: Julia Kristeva, Gamer Theory, And Identities-In-Différance, Ricardo R. Ramirez 2017 California State University - San Bernardino

Your Abjection Is In Another Castle: Julia Kristeva, Gamer Theory, And Identities-In-Différance, Ricardo R. Ramirez

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Typified rhetorical situations are often a result of normalized ideologies within cultures; however, they also have the capability to produce new ideology. Within these discursive sites, identities are constructed among these normalized social acts. More importantly, these identities are constructed across many layers, not limited to one social act, but many that overlap and influence each other. In this paper, I focus on the identities that are constructed in marginalized spaces within sites of interacting discourse. Focusing on the rhetoric of abjection posited by Julia Kristeva, along with McKenzie Wark’s exploration of gamespace, a liminal theoretical space that encompasses ...

After delving into the history of the industries, this paper discusses two integral systems within Korea and Japan’s industries, the idol system and the tie-up system, and how hybridization and globalization has impacted these industries. This paper then ...


Sharing [True] Stories: Supporting And Sustaining Collaborative Digital Oral History Archives And Research, Rachel Walton, Charlotte Nunes 2017 Rollins College

Sharing [True] Stories: Supporting And Sustaining Collaborative Digital Oral History Archives And Research, Rachel Walton, Charlotte Nunes

Rachel Walton

The grant-funded [True] Stories project aims to provide instructors from a variety of disciplines and on multiple campuses the critical resources and expertise needed to make student-driven oral history work possible, impactful, accessible, and a permanent part of collections. As such, the project PIs are committed to building and vetting a practical model for oral history classroom collaborations between smaller, moderately-funded college archives or libraries. In addition to the expected challenges of technological and interdisciplinary collaboration, the [True] Stories face critical digital preservation decisions and roadblocks: shared and sustainable digital storage solutions; a standard set of acquisition, processing, and curatorial ...
