Breaking The Feedback Loop: Experimental Filmmakers Confronting Everyday Surveillance Technologies, Taz Coffey 2021 Portland State University

Breaking The Feedback Loop: Experimental Filmmakers Confronting Everyday Surveillance Technologies, Taz Coffey

University Honors Theses

Along with shifts in how surveillance technologies work to control and capitalize on everyday life comes a need to understand and critique them. What past and present paranoid dystopian stories and other pop-culture parables seem to leave out is any thoughtful consideration of how surveillance racializes bodies and consolidates power in favor of racist hegemony, specifically in a post-9/11 context. We often fail to question in what ways popular discourse on surveillance and resistance to surveillance practices reinforce violence against--and consolidate control over--marginalized populations. Part of this almost willful negligence, I believe, is symptomatic of visibility’s status as ...


Translations As Representations Of Cultural Bias, Sarah Theimer 2021 University of New Hampshire, Durham

Translations As Representations Of Cultural Bias, Sarah Theimer

Faculty Publications

A presentation at the American Library Association's Midwinter Conference this presentation discusses how translations are not simply the movement of a resource from the source language to the target language. Transitioning a work into another language necessarily carries with it the bias of the target culture. Bias is demonstrated in different ways. Publishers decide what should and should not get published. Translators decide what should get included in the text to be meet the expectations of the source culture. Translations are often are incompletely described in library catalogs, which further inhibit the users' ability to make an informed choice.


Cross-Cultural Adaptation Of Mandarin-Speaking Undergraduate Students In The United States, Enhao Wang 2020 The University of San Francisco

Cross-Cultural Adaptation Of Mandarin-Speaking Undergraduate Students In The United States, Enhao Wang

Master's Projects and Capstones

ABSTRACT

Studying in the United States is many Chinese students' dream, but those who manage to achieve it encounter two main problems. The first one is the language barrier and the second one cultural shock. Chine is the highest provider of international students with 30% from statistics of 2017/2018 class. The primary language spoken by Chinese is the Mandarin language. All the other languages come in as a second language to most Chinese, including English. When they travel out of their country to further education as students, they are hampered by language barriers as they navigate through their struggle ...


“Fetch M’Dear”: Healers, Midwives, Witches, And Conjuring Women In Select Ya And Toni Morrison Novels, Diane Mallett-Birkitt 2020 East Tennessee State University

“Fetch M’Dear”: Healers, Midwives, Witches, And Conjuring Women In Select Ya And Toni Morrison Novels, Diane Mallett-Birkitt

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Accusations and persecution of witchcraft have been embedded in global culture for centuries. For as long as these persecutions have occurred, women have found themselves accused most frequently. Older women with herbal knowledge were often called on to assist with childbirth or termination of pregnancies and this “secret knowledge” often led them to be suspected of supernatural abilities, often of a satanic nature. Intrigued by these wise women who appeared to have mysterious powers and a penchant for arousing the ire of men in the legal, medical, and religious communities, I began to notice their frequent appearance in novels. Does ...

Time Travel: Teaching Australian History Through Speculative Fiction, Lynnette Lounsbury, Charlotte O'Neill 2020 Avondale College of Higher Education

Time Travel: Teaching Australian History Through Speculative Fiction, Lynnette Lounsbury, Charlotte O'Neill

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

When Mark Salber Phillip’s suggested that history could be written as a type of combinational genre, with traditional empirical elements and fictional, literary elements working together to create temporal distance between the reader and the events, he saw this as a way of forcing us to look more broadly at the meanings of history, rather than focusing on a singular event. Using his claim that history cannot be understood as a singular form, but rather as "a cluster of overlapping and competing genres" that press the reader to a new degree of involvement in a story, it can be ...

Gísli’S Súrsson’S Saga: A Conversion Case Study, Sarah S. Penney 2020 University of Maine

Gísli’S Súrsson’S Saga: A Conversion Case Study, Sarah S. Penney

The Macksey Journal

This paper examines an Icelandic Saga, Gísli Súrsson’s Saga, with the aid of key readings in liminal space theory, medieval Christian philosophy, and The King’s Two Bodies by Ernst Kantorowicz. Building on prior scholarship by William I. Miller and other scholars of medieval outlawry, the paper focuses on Gísli's symbolic status as a break from Iceland’s pagan background due to his liminal state, outlawry, apparent belief systems and values, and suggested relation to medieval Christian philosophy. Gísli is an outlier, but he is also a precursor to Iceland’s eventual conversion to Christianity because of his ...


Metaphor And Emotiveness As Rhetorical Devices In Abbas’S Address To The Pope, Aysar Yaseen 2020 Arab American University

Metaphor And Emotiveness As Rhetorical Devices In Abbas’S Address To The Pope, Aysar Yaseen

Journal of the Arab American University مجلة الجامعة العربية الامريكية للبحوث

Managing any linguistic event means steering the situation towards serving one’s own purpose or goals via careful wording of one’s message. This is immensely achieved through using emotive words that address the receiver’s emotions rather than his/her intellect since managing linguistic occurrences is closely intertwined with subjectivity and emotiveness. In other words, language must be warm, intimate, and sentimental and addresses conscience to effect persuasion. Furthermore, Language is the carrier of image. For the image to be understood, two conditions must be met. First, image must be accessible, i.e. exists or can be imagined in ...


Preservice English Teachers’ Evolving Conceptions Of 21st-Century Writing, Amber Jensen 2020 Brigham Young University

Preservice English Teachers’ Evolving Conceptions Of 21st-Century Writing, Amber Jensen

Teaching/Writing: The Journal of Writing Teacher Education

This study used stimulated-recall interviews throughout four secondary English preservice teachers’ (PSTs) semester-long student teaching internships to examine how critical teaching moments shaped their evolving conceptions of 21st-century writing. The article first describes the participants’ collective definitions of features and experiences of 21st-century writing in the ELA classroom, focusing specifically on how they understood digital and multimodal composition. It then examines two case studies that demonstrate how PSTs’ teaching experiences destabilized, challenged, and contradicted their emerging definitions. Findings suggest that English educators may engage PSTs in conceptualizing nuanced and flexible 21st-century writing pedagogies as they construct field experiences as reflective ...


A Study Of Selected Poems By Nikki Giovanni, م.م ايناس عبد المنعم 2020 الجعامة العراقية كلية الاداب

A Study Of Selected Poems By Nikki Giovanni, م.م ايناس عبد المنعم

Midad AL-Adab Refereed Quarterly Journal

The paper sheds light on the literary achievement, ideas and inclinations of one of the revolutionary postmodern American poets, Nikki Giovanni (1943- ). It presents the Afro-American poet, Nikki Giovanni, her revolutionary temperament and rejection of racial discrimination and discrimination against the woman in poems like “The True Import of Present Dialogue, Black vs Negro,” “Nikki-Rosa,” “Poems for Black Boys” and “A Litany for Peppe.” The poet mirrors her time for its sex and race prejudice, and for its daily violence and unpredictable atrocities. The paper shows her condemnation of America’s political and social racial courses of action through an ...

In An Other’S Time: Re-Reading Hamlet With Lacan And Ljubljana To Discover Metametatextuality Beyond The Metatextual, Riley Spieler 2020 University of Chicago

In An Other’S Time: Re-Reading Hamlet With Lacan And Ljubljana To Discover Metametatextuality Beyond The Metatextual, Riley Spieler

The Macksey Journal

This paper offers a new reading of Hamlet based in Lacanian psychoanalysis and continental philosophy. Modern and contemporary readings of Shakespeare’s Hamlet attempt to reconcile the titular Dane by either criticizing or spurning his subjectivity. I see the play’s intense focus on his iconoclasm not as a failure nor a red herring best understood through another conceptual vehicle, but as a field of inquiry and judgement yet under-explored. By leveraging Jacques Lacan’s theories of the subject, particularly through the Ljubljana school’s (Slavoj Žižek and Alenka Zupančič) interpretations, this paper takes a careful view of the drama ...

Assembling The Pieces Of Personhood In Anne Carson's Nox, Rachel A. Seitz 2020 Illinois State University

Assembling The Pieces Of Personhood In Anne Carson's Nox, Rachel A. Seitz

The Macksey Journal

Life writing traditionally seeks to sort out confusion, trauma, identity, or to serve as memento; in Anne Carson’s Nox, many of these parameters are met while others are broken. I examine the modes by which Nox violates expectations of the genre through her highly marked text, fragmented imagery, and Latin translation, such that the text could more properly be called epitaph rather than narrative. The text was crafted as a scrapbook to honor Carson’s deceased, estranged brother, with whom her relationship was complicated due to his absence. Because Nox primarily focuses on the remnants of his life rather ...


“Of Follies, Vices, & Unspoilt Virtues”: 'The Travels Of Hildebrand Bowman,' Imperialist Mythmaking, And Violent European-Pacific Islander Encounters On The Cook Voyages, Ayden Thomas 2020 Illinois College

“Of Follies, Vices, & Unspoilt Virtues”: 'The Travels Of Hildebrand Bowman,' Imperialist Mythmaking, And Violent European-Pacific Islander Encounters On The Cook Voyages, Ayden Thomas

The Macksey Journal

The Travels of Hildebrand Bowman (1778) is a satirical travelogue that, despite its debated status as the “first New Zealand novel,” has been forgotten by time until only recently. As a dramatization of Captain James Cook’s second voyage to the Pacific, the work has attracted the interest of modern scholars who regard the Cook expeditions as symbols of progress. Yet the novel’s portrayal of the infamous Grass Cove Incident of 1773 and its contrast of European and indigenous New Zealander violence can be used to complicate the relationship between colonialist thinking and the British imagination that existed in ...


Tolkien's Work On The Oxford English Dictionary: Some New Evidence From Quotation Slips, Rachel A. Fletcher 2020 University of Glasgow

Tolkien's Work On The Oxford English Dictionary: Some New Evidence From Quotation Slips, Rachel A. Fletcher

Journal of Tolkien Research

This article presents previously undiscussed material, in the form of citation slips, relating to Tolkien’s work on the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). The separation of these slips from the OED archives means that they have been almost entirely overlooked, and their relevance to Tolkien studies has not been recognised. Nevertheless, they have the potential to be a valuable resource, especially for understanding the specialist skills Tolkien brought to the dictionary as a scholar of Old English. One item is of particular biographical interest, as it suggests that Tolkien was carrying out work for the OED earlier than previously believed.


Denying The Animosity: Understanding Narratives Of Harmony From The Nellie Massacre, 1983, Jabeen Yasmeen 2020 Indian Institute of Technology

Denying The Animosity: Understanding Narratives Of Harmony From The Nellie Massacre, 1983, Jabeen Yasmeen

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

This article tries to understand through oral narratives from the Nellie Massacre of 1983 to reflect on how societies in India adhere to a narrative of harmony between different communities and a familial structure before a conflict breaks out, denying the existence of any palpable enmity amongst the communities. It will see how and why the assertions of peaceful co-existence may differ in case of the majority and minority in India. While there may be genuine assertions of harmony, such assertions may also be based on different factors such as majority strength, fear of retaliation and the compulsions of co-existence.


Memorias | Electronic Literature + Live Coding Performance, Jessica A. Rodriguez Miss, Rolando Rodriguez, Alejandro Brianza, Luis M. Guzman 2020 McMaster University

Memorias | Electronic Literature + Live Coding Performance, Jessica A. Rodriguez Miss, Rolando Rodriguez, Alejandro Brianza, Luis M. Guzman

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

Memorias is a web-based artistic project by Jessica Rodríguez developed through the Estuary platform —an online platform to host live coding languages. It is based in six autobiographical writings connected to the way she “hears”, “writes”, “watches”, “reads”, “sees” and “listens” to the word. Through these texts, six code works were designed and programmed, hybridizing natural and computing languages by parsing three existing live coding languages: Tidal Cycles, Punctual, and CineCer0.

Together, Memorias’ languages collide different materialities as well as visual and sonic approaches, going from voices in English, Spanish, Cello and Paetzold samples, audio and visual synthesis, and pre-recorded ...
