Google's #Freeandopen Campaign: Using A Documentary To Raise Awareness Of Internet Regulation Among University Students, Shelby N. Rice 2015 Western Kentucky University

Google's #Freeandopen Campaign: Using A Documentary To Raise Awareness Of Internet Regulation Among University Students, Shelby N. Rice

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

The internet was founded as a non-proprietary tool by which computers could connect and share information reciprocally. This philosophy has allowed the internet to become a fundamental resource in higher education and provides a window by which students can experience the world around them. The primary focus of The #freeandopen Documentary is to maintain an uncensored web by raising awareness of the forces that act against the freedom of the internet and of the resources available to contribute to the cause. The short, 13-minute documentary is funded by Google’s #freeandopen Microgrant of $2,000. It features interviews from students ...

Rise And Fall Of An Information Technology Outsourcing Program: A Qualitative Analysis Of A Troubled Corporate Initiative, David A. Johanek 2015 University of St. Thomas, Minnesota

Rise And Fall Of An Information Technology Outsourcing Program: A Qualitative Analysis Of A Troubled Corporate Initiative, David A. Johanek

Education Doctoral Dissertations in Leadership

Information technology outsourcing (ITO) is a common business practice and a widely studied topic in academic literature. However, far less attention is paid to the implications and social dynamics of executives’ pursuit of personal career achievement through the implementation of ITO programs. Focused mainly on gaining organizational power for career advancement and accomplishment, executives can create unintended consequences for their employees, their suppliers, their company, their shareholders, and their own careers.

This research focused on a large information technology outsourcing program from its inception to early implementation at a single Fortune 1000 firm. The time span covered was just over ...

Institutional Repositories And The Humanities: A New Collaborative Model For Scholarly Publishing, Laura M. Ruschman 2015 Wayne State University

Institutional Repositories And The Humanities: A New Collaborative Model For Scholarly Publishing, Laura M. Ruschman

ASIS&T Student Chapter Events Archive

Presentation by Laura Ruschman at the Symposium on Information and Technology in the Arts and Humanities (April 22 & 23, 2015). The Symposium was sponsored by the Special Interest Groups for the Arts and Humanities (SIG AH) and Visualization, Images, and Sound (SIG VIS) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T).

Traditionally, academic library systems have used institutional repositories to preserve, collect, and provide access to scholarly work produced by those comprising their respective university community. This places libraries near the end of the total information lifecycle, acting in the roles of secondary distributors and collectors. By better utilizing institutional repository software, academic libraries are able to go beyond these roles and instead act as a participant in the creation and distribution of scholarly work. Institutional repositories now have the ability to turn libraries into digital publishers. This is particularly important for humanities scholars, a group that is still largely dependent on the traditional publishing model for sharing scholarly information. By embracing institutional repositories and digital publishing, humanities scholars will be encouraged to reconsider what defines a scholarly work in the 21st century, which may then lead to new methods for creating and sharing scholarly information in a digital environment.

Laura Ruschman is currently finishing her Master's in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University, in Detroit, MI, with a specialization in Digital Content Management; she will be graduating in May 2015. While earning her MLIS, Laura interned with the Wayne State University Press and the Digital Publishing department of the Wayne State Library System, where she helped digitize and manage scholarly journals in Wayne State's institutional repository (Digital Commons), and thereafter became intensely interested in the intersection between academic libraries, digital content, and scholarly publishing. Laura holds bachelor degrees in English Literature and Journalism from Miami University, and a Certificate in Publishing from New York ...

Jewish Games For Learning: Renewing Heritage Traditions In The Digital Age, Owen Gottlieb 2015 Rochester Institute of Technology

Jewish Games For Learning: Renewing Heritage Traditions In The Digital Age, Owen Gottlieb

Articles

Rather than a discontinuity from traditional modes of learning, new explorations of digital and strategic games in Jewish learning are markedly continuous with ancient practices. An explication of the close connections between traditional modes of Jewish learning, interpretive practice, and gaming culture can help to explain how Jews of the Digital Age can adopt and are adapting modern Games for Learning practices for contemporary purposes. The chapter opens by contextualizing a notion of Jewish Games and the field of Games for Learning. Next, the chapter explains the connections between game systems and Jewish traditions. It closes with a case study ...


Creating A Digital Scholarly Edition Of Walt Whitman’S Short Fiction: A Case Study In Tei/Xml, Stephanie M. Blalock 2015 University of Iowa

Creating A Digital Scholarly Edition Of Walt Whitman’S Short Fiction: A Case Study In Tei/Xml, Stephanie M. Blalock

School of Library and Information Science Graduate Student Posters

The increased accessibility of nineteenth-century newspapers and magazines in online archives represents an opportunity for new literary discoveries. Many nineteenth-century writers, including the poet Walt Whitman, made contributions to periodicals. In the 1840s, well before the publication of the first edition of Whitman’s poetry volume Leaves of Grass (1855), he authored a novel and several short stories that first appeared in periodicals, ranging from literary journals to popular newspapers. Since 2010, I have discovered 324 previously unknown printings or reprints of Whitman’s fiction in periodicals. Based in part on my research, The Walt Whitman Archive’s NEH-funded Pre-Leaves ...


Navigating The Social Landscape: An Exploration Of Social Networking Site Usage Among Emerging Adults, Kristen Colbeck 2015 The University of Western Ontario

Navigating The Social Landscape: An Exploration Of Social Networking Site Usage Among Emerging Adults, Kristen Colbeck

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This study explores how emerging adults (Arnett, 2000) in their first- and second-year of undergraduate study make use of social networking sites (SNSs) for their day-to-day sociality. This study compares emerging adults’ use of Facebook, which is the most popular and widely used SNS among this particular demographic, to increasingly popular SNSs Twitter and Instagram. This project seeks to discover how the use of different SNSs supplements, changes, or replaces the use of Facebook, considering social capital exists on each platform, and if and how each sites’ uses and gratifications differ. This study employs face-to-face semi-structured interviews to pursue the ...

Digital Expressionism And Christopher Wheeldon’S Alice’S Adventures In Wonderland: What Contemporary Choreographers Can Learn From Early Twentieth-Century Modernism, Kelly Oden 2015 Butler University

Digital Expressionism And Christopher Wheeldon’S Alice’S Adventures In Wonderland: What Contemporary Choreographers Can Learn From Early Twentieth-Century Modernism, Kelly Oden

Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research

How can classical ballet adapt to a world that is in an ever more rapid state of flux? By uncovering an example of the kind of interdisciplinary artistic collaboration that contributed to the thriving artistic environment of the early twentieth century, a model for artistic success emerges. By examining modernism and Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in relation to Christopher Wheeldon’s groundbreaking 2011 ballet Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, a correlation between the success of the Ballets Russes and the success of Wheeldon is exposed. I argue that by applying the modernist practice of interdisciplinary interaction to his own ...


Toxic Femininity 4.0, Roopika Risam 2015 Salem State University

Toxic Femininity 4.0, Roopika Risam

English Faculty Publications

This paper examines constructions of toxic femininity within fourth-wave feminism. Taking hashtag feminism as its focus, this article contends that charges of toxicity lobbed online reproduce divisive dynamics that have shaped earlier trends within feminist movements in the United States. It further suggests that Twitter, as a platform, amplifies deep discomfort with theories of intersectional feminism while shaping how normative gender is reproduced online.
