Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse 2017 Seton Hall University

Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Over the past few decades, advancements in technology have changed society entirely. Every bit of information about world news, popular culture, and art is just a tap of a touchscreen away. So many aspects of the contemporary world have become digitized so that it was only a matter of time before museums would have to face the issue of born-digital media in their collections. From videos to web-based art, museums have to tackle how to save this new form of cultural heritage. Museums have to do so now before it gets lost forever. The challenge of born-digital objects lies in ...


Un-Othering The Albino: How Popular Communication Constructs Albinism Identity, Niya P. Miller 2017 The University of Southern Mississippi

Un-Othering The Albino: How Popular Communication Constructs Albinism Identity, Niya P. Miller

Dissertations

This study examines the rhetoric of whiteness framing albinism in the general public. It is argued that the albinic body is a unique space from which the typical coding of race, and the very act of difference making can be deconstructed. This analysis brings into focus observations about how whiteness operates rhetorically and ideologically in popular discourse to create negative verbal and visual trope of albinism, called the albino trope. Through the albino trope, White privilege maintains its invisible rhetorical silence. By examining the complexities that arise when albinism is communicated about in the general public, we gain more insight ...


Hollywood, The Media, And The Alteration Of Image In The 1940s, Sean M. Conrad 2017 Pepperdine University

Hollywood, The Media, And The Alteration Of Image In The 1940s, Sean M. Conrad

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

I am currently writing a feature-length screenplay entitled Klara based on true events and people surrounding the rise of Nazi Germany and the exile of Jewish-German intellectuals to America during 1933-1945. The narrative is grounded in the work of the European Film Fund (1938-1948), the Paul Kohner Talent Agency, and the various agents of propaganda at work both in Nazi Germany and America during this time period. Through my research I hope to explicate how Jewish-German exile in America influenced not only those exiled, but also the burgeoning American film industry and how the cross-cultural intersection of media propaganda, both ...

Visual Rhetoric Through The Years, Leah Kind 2017 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Visual Rhetoric Through The Years, Leah Kind

Leah Kind

This exercise gives students an introduction to some of the language and terminology of visual rhetoric in a brief teacher-guided discussion. Following the discussion, students, in small groups, will find both a vintage print advertisement and a current print ad within the same general category and examine how different forms of appeals have evolved through time, how ads now target their specific audiences, and, in general, how ads have changed, and why. Groups will present their findings to the class. Having the opportunity to see what in advertising has changed (as well as what has not changed) will allow students ...


Ted Talks As An Emergent Genre, Julia Ludewig 2017 Allegheny College

Ted Talks As An Emergent Genre, Julia Ludewig

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "TED Talks as an Emergent Genre" Julia Ludewig analyzes TED talks—short, informational, and entertaining presentations that are given during TED conferences in North America and abroad—as a hybrid and emerging genre. Based on a qualitative interpretation of 14 such talks, she offers a list of recurring thematic, argumentative, and rhetorical features, which she aligns with three parent genres—the sales pitch, the memoir, and the academic lecture. Comparing recent versions of TED talks with three older talks from the 1980s and 1990s, she suggests an historical trajectory, which emphasizes the professional performance character of recent ...


The Dramatization Of Cultural Hybridity And The "In-Between" Turkey In Fazıl's Künye, Önder Çakırtaş 2017 Bingöl University

The Dramatization Of Cultural Hybridity And The "In-Between" Turkey In Fazıl's Künye, Önder Çakırtaş

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "The Dramatization of Cultural Hybridity and the "In-Between" Turkey in Fazıl's Künye" Önder Çakırtaş addresses Turkey's historical context and exposes how political, social and cultural changes were expressed in Turkey's public sphere. Using Niyazi Berkes's theory of secularism as proceeding of modernism Çakırtaş discusses different examples of stylistic strategies of cultural hybridity in the playwright's historical-based play, Künye. He investigates how political changes in pre-Turkey times signify Turkey's national striving, and how the Ottoman-conservative past metamorphoses into Turkic-secular. The study juxtaposes the perceptions of 'introduction to Westernization' and 'departure from Islamic ...

Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama And The Manic Pixie Dream Girl, Claire T. Solomon 2017 Oberlin College

Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama And The Manic Pixie Dream Girl, Claire T. Solomon

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Anarcho-Feminist Melodrama and the Manic Pixie Dream Girl (1929-2016)" Claire Solomon analyzes the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope as an apparatus of capture (Deleuze and Guattari, A Thousand). More precisely, her article models how such tropes imply modes of reading anachronistically and metafictionally that decontextualize gestures of resistance and conflate female writers, performers, and characters across time and place. Solomon offers a situated formalist reading of Argentine playwright Salvadora Medina Onrubia's 1929 drama, Las descentradas, revealing an avant-garde counterpoint of melodrama and metafiction as an ambiguous alternative to capture.

In Defense Of Film Art: The Effects Of Digital Media On Narrative, Live-Action Film, Scott Williams

Scott Williams

A man named Jared is playing with his dog. It is mid-May in a rural area of the Northern Plains of the United States. Jared has a Frisbee that he tosses ahead of him as he follows behind his companion. They are in a hilly, tree-filled park with warm sun beams penetrating the dust that follows the dog in a trail as he runs. The dog grabs the Frisbee off the ground after it falls and gallops back to his owner. Jared bends down to take the toy and feels the wetness of the dog's mouth on it, as ...
