I Go Gray.Com: A Photographic Celebration And Oral History Of Gray-Haired Women, Tabitha Deering 2019 Dominican University of California

I Go Gray.Com: A Photographic Celebration And Oral History Of Gray-Haired Women, Tabitha Deering

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

This paper describes the creation of the igogray.com website which celebrates gray-haired women by featuring their oral histories and showcasing the aesthetic beauty of gray hair through fine art photography. The website is a platform to listen to what gray-haired women have to say on the subject of gray hair, and to encourage the audience to take a closer look at gray-haired women. When the author stopped dyeing her gray hair she experienced an ageist shift in society’s perceptions toward her, and she wondered if other graying women were having the same types of experiences, so this project ...


Dynamis Of Healing, Pia Sophia Chaudhari 2019 Fordham University

Dynamis Of Healing, Pia Sophia Chaudhari

Religion

This book explores how traces of the energies and dynamics of Orthodox Christian theology and anthropology may be observed in the clinical work of depth psychology. Looking to theology to express its own religious truths and to psychology to see whether these truth claims show up in healing modalities, the author creatively engages both disciplines in order to highlight the possibilities for healing contained therein. Dynamis of Healing elucidates how theology and psychology are by no means fundamentally at odds with each other, but rather can work together in a beautiful and powerful synergia to address both the deepest needs ...


You Were Home: Women's Work And Creation In Darren Aronofsky's Mother!, Sydney Rice 2019 Murray State University

You Were Home: Women's Work And Creation In Darren Aronofsky's Mother!, Sydney Rice

Honors College Theses

In my senior honors thesis, I analyze Darren Aronofsky’s film, mother!,as an allegory centered around man’s effect on the earth’s environment and, inherently, the female experience. mother!is an allegory about the shriveling earth that uses the Christian creation narrative to drive its plot, but because the film is centered in Mother's limited perspective, it is a film about the experience of woman's devalued creation and the struggle to move from the object into the subject. I argue that because the story is grounded in a female character, the mother, it describes the struggles ...

From Unseen To Undaunted: Mrs. Tulliver’S Rise In The Mill On The Floss, Anemone Hansen 2019 Pepperdine University

From Unseen To Undaunted: Mrs. Tulliver’S Rise In The Mill On The Floss, Anemone Hansen

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

In George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss, Mrs. Tulliver seems to be a two-dimensional character who favors her steady son Tom over her passionate daughter Maggie. At face value, Mrs. Tulliver is the passive object who suffers the consequences of her husband’s ego and her sister’s family pride because she makes no decisions on her own. However, in the last book of the novel, Maggie comes back home in disgrace, and Mrs. Tulliver makes the drastic decision to leave Tom and the conventional life he represents in order to align herself with Maggie. Mrs. Tulliver’s ...

Podium Girl: Time To End The Tradition, Emily J. Houghton 2019 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Podium Girl: Time To End The Tradition, Emily J. Houghton

Emily J. Houghton, Ph.D.

Recently, organizers of the professional cycling event the Tour Down Under made the decision to eliminate “podium girls” and replace them with male junior riders on the men’s tour, thereby breaking from the tradition of other major professional cycling events like the Tour De France, Vuelta a Espana and Giro D’Italia. Podium girls are a highly visible component of the awards ceremony at the conclusion of bike races. The women are often impeccably dressed in matching outfits while presenting winners with prizes, flowers and kisses on the cheek. The role of podium girls and, in some instances, podium ...

Jellies, Sabrina Skerston, Ellen C. McKinney 2019 Iowa State University

Jellies, Sabrina Skerston, Ellen C. Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

Jellies are colorful plastic shoes that were very popular in the 1980s in mainly Europe and the United States. Women and children of all classes wore them because they were fun, easy-to-care-for summer footwear that was relatively inexpensive. They were available in many different colors, textures, and styles, from slip-ons to sandals. Although jellies were the most prevalent during the 1980s, they come back into style every few years.

Traditionally, the barong is made of white, transparent cloth with embroidery around the buttons. The shirt is usually woven out of pina fiber, which is harvested from the leaves of the pineapple plant.


Faja, Ellen C. McKinney 2019 Iowa State University

Faja, Ellen C. Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

The faja is a compression undergarment, similar to a girdle. The faja is worn very tight on the body to create an extremely curvy hourglass figure. The undergarment shifts organs and flesh and has been said to reduce one's appetite. The degree of figure shaping and body compression depends on the fabric composition. Versions can be found in mixtures of spandex, cotton, nylon, or latex; the less forgiving the material, the more flattering the effect. The undergarment may be closed with hooks, a zipper, or both.
