Letting The Body Lead, Amanda Boggs 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Letting The Body Lead, Amanda Boggs

Masters Theses

Letting the Body Lead is an exhibition and workshop series that focuses on embodiment in social context and invites attendees to engage with the work, both as viewers and active participants. Embodiment in social context refers to the understanding of lived experiences in the body. Within my creative practice, I explore the body's creativity, knowledge, and agency while bridging and brining together the fields of fine arts, movement-based and socially just art making. I believe in the transformative potential of how movement and contemplative practices can support a more liberated way of being both within an individual and, by ...


Contemporary MoʻOlelo: Filling The Literature Stream With Pacific Water, Kalilinoe Detwiler 2020 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Contemporary MoʻOlelo: Filling The Literature Stream With Pacific Water, Kalilinoe Detwiler

Horizons

Introduction: This paper discusses the essentialness of drawing from moʻolelo and traditional knowledge in creative works and conducting the production of those works through an Indigenous lens. Methods: I first identify the discourse community through which the research and conclusions are oriented, which is the Native Hawaiian community interested in telling stories through new mediums. I identify a concern of this community which is the number of storytellers who use Hawaiʻi as a backdrop for stories that misrepresent the community and culture in the entertainment industry as a commodity. Results: Through the research, I identify the harm of allowing non-Indigenous ...


El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València 2020 University of Colorado Boulder

El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

El abrazo de la serpiente es una de las obras cumbre del cine latino americano que más reconocimiento internacional ha obtenido, pero ¿por qué el filme de Ciro Guerra fascinó a un público tan amplio y diverso, obteniendo premios en lugares tan alejados y dispares como Montreal o Yereván, por nombrar alguno? Esta presentación realiza un análisis en profundidad de la puesta en escena en El abrazo para explicar el lenguaje audiovisual con el que el filme de Ciro Guerra construye una narrativa cinematográfica alejada de las formas dominantes, pero habilitada para emocionar a audiencias de todo el mundo. Tomando ...

Toward A Fluid Cinematic Spectatorship And Desire: Revisiting Laura Mulvey’S Psychoanalytic Film Theories, Taylor Ashton McGoey 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Toward A Fluid Cinematic Spectatorship And Desire: Revisiting Laura Mulvey’S Psychoanalytic Film Theories, Taylor Ashton Mcgoey

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis project re-evaluates Laura Mulvey’s film theories regarding psychoanalysis and the “male gaze,” first found in her essay “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema” (1975). By re-evaluating the limitations of Mulvey’s use of the Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalytic model this project seeks to understand the desires and processes of identification of cinematic spectators who reject the ideological imperative of the “male gaze”. As many critics have noted, Mulvey’s initial examination of cinema does not account for LGBTQ+ spectators and/or black spectators who occupy looking relations that reject cis-normative and heteronormative white Hollywood cinematic conventions. From this ...

盜亦有道 : 關於中國網絡字幕組的記憶和敘述 (2001-2020), Yayuan Ma

Cultural Studies@Lingnan 文化研究@嶺南

二零零一年中國加入世界貿易組織(WTO),在與世界接軌的同時,也抓緊時機大力發展文化產業以輸出文化產品和價值理念。同年,互聯網開始在中國普及,以翻譯歐美日韓影視劇爲主的網絡字幕組應運而生、發展壯大,且因工作高效和免費服務而廣受互聯網用戶追捧和好評。網絡字幕組以游走於法律灰色地帶的方式為中國互聯網用戶引入海量影視劇資源,而中國官方從起初的視而不見到為加强知識版權和文化審查而接連打擊、查封字幕組,並把字幕組在跨文化傳播上的巨大貢獻排除在中國文化產業發展的敘述邏輯之外

The Modes Of Intervention In Alvin Lucier’S I Am Sitting In A Room, Daniel Fox 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Modes Of Intervention In Alvin Lucier’S I Am Sitting In A Room, Daniel Fox

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Alvin Lucier’s I am sitting in a room (1969) is an icon of experimental music and sound art. The sizable literature addressing the aesthetic and philosophical implications of this piece rarely discusses the performance practice beyond what is indicated in the score itself. This is problematic for two reasons: 1) The meaning that is derived from the piece often hinges not just on what sounds are obtained, but on how they are obtained. 2) Over the past 50 years, changes in the performance practice have altered what constitutes the work: magnetic tape was used until 2000 when it was ...

Bomba is an Afro Puerto Rican music and dance tradition that was born out of the struggle and survival of enslaved people all over the island. Resistimos documents the resurgence of this music as a tool to fight corruption, gender inequality and the austerity measures imposed in Puerto Rico by the US Fiscal Control Board in 2016.


Cinema "Turns": Catalan Creative Documentary, Celia Sainz Delgado 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Cinema "Turns": Catalan Creative Documentary, Celia Sainz Delgado

Masters Theses

This thesis focuses on four women-directed films as a way to illustrate some characteristics shared by the new Catalan creative documentary: El cielo gira ( The Sky Turns, dir. Mercedes Álvarez, 2004), Nedar (Swim, dir. Carla Subirana, 2008), La plaga (The Plague, dir. Neus Ballús, 2013), and Penèlope (Penelope, dir. Eva Vila, 2018). My aim is to highlight their alternative cinematographic strategies, which stray from the hegemonic discourses of documentary filmmaking. In so doing, I analyze these films from three different angles: the relationship between the filmmaker and the material world; the alternative modalities of time; and the haptic connection between ...


Election Day — Documentary, John Thomas Tarpley 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Election Day — Documentary, John Thomas Tarpley

Theses and Dissertations

Election Day is a three-channel documentary chronicling the places, personalities, and tone of Little Rock, Arkansas, during its titular midterm Election Day in November 2018. Throughout the course of the day, the film branches across the city, capturing mini-narratives, bits of conversation, and tableau of civic activity in the public sphere. It is less concerned with the quantitative facts of the day as it is with conveying the transitory social expressions and moods of a modern, southern city on a uniquely American day. This project represents my continued documentary interest in creating inclusive, contemporary local portraits and counter-historical chronicles of ...


A Screenplay For Bystander Intervention For Sexual Harassment Scenarios For College Students, Shanti Herzog 2020 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

A Screenplay For Bystander Intervention For Sexual Harassment Scenarios For College Students, Shanti Herzog

The resulting screenplay was written to provide college students at Cal Poly with strategies to identify and take action when encountering sexual harassment, especially in small group gatherings ...

I Think of Your Mother is a short observational film that documents Valentine’s Day weekend at a 131-year old, family-owned-and-operated flower shop in East Elmhurst, Queens. The once thriving business of providing flowers for funerals at the nearby St. Michael’s Cemetery has diminished, but seven days a week the 92-year old owner, Gladys, still answers the phone and takes orders while her family tries to accommodate her way of doing things. As they struggle to keep the store relevant, the film captures a family business that has persevered, if not necessarily triumphed, over the profound changes taking place ...

This paper will also outline the biggest lessons I learned about fictional narratives, and discuss the successes and failures of the film as a whole. I also plan on discussing how those lessons will further my academic and ...


Female Leaders Navigate The Arts, Post 'Me Too', Peyton Kennedy 2020 James Madison University

Female Leaders Navigate The Arts, Post 'Me Too', Peyton Kennedy

Senior Honors Projects, 2020-current

As the lights dim and the curtain rises on a theatrical production, there are roles to fill onstage and off. Perhaps the most important roles in modern theatre are those of leadership. Leaders in the arts have the power to influence company communication, shape the culture of the rehearsal room and navigate through a crisis. However, leadership and power can be manipulated, as the world witnessed through the ‘me too’ movement. As allegations rose against prominent leaders, the push for change strengthened. We are now three years past Hollywood’s ignition of the ‘me too’ movement, which prompts the question ...
