Female Desire, Pop Rock, And The Tiananmen Generation: The Synergy Of Sexual And Political Revolutions In The Banned Chinese-German Film Summer Palace (2006), Qinna Shen 2021 Bryn Mawr College

Female Desire, Pop Rock, And The Tiananmen Generation: The Synergy Of Sexual And Political Revolutions In The Banned Chinese-German Film Summer Palace (2006), Qinna Shen

German Faculty Research and Scholarship

The year 1989 comprises a vital part of the Tiananmen generation’s memory and identity. Yet any attempt to address the turbulent events of that year, however obliquely, carries a high risk of censorship. Lou Ye took that risk in Summer Palace (2006). His iconoclastic exploration of sex and politics at a thinly disguised Beijing University was banned in China and languishes in relative obscurity in the West. This article endeavors to ensure that Summer Palace receives the serious recognition it deserves. The film’s narrative arc stretches from Beijing to Berlin and uses a delayed death in Berlin as ...


Stuart Hall & Theory Of Representation In The Media: Exploring Get Out And Candyman, Lashanna Bryant 2021 Arcadia University

Stuart Hall & Theory Of Representation In The Media: Exploring Get Out And Candyman, Lashanna Bryant

Capstone Showcase

Media representation has aided in creating a toxic manifestation of what it means to be Black in America. More specifically, the exploration of Black characters in horror films has opened many doors to hidden racism, discrimination, and oversimplification of their culture and their value in society. In looking into the films Candyman and Get Out there is a clear progression throughout the early 1990s to the mid 2010s that detail a very rapid change from taking a Black character from a background role to the main character.

The Myth & Legend Of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial On The Atari 2600: The Fan’S Quick Start And Strategy Guide, Miguel Ramlatchan, William I. Ramlatchan

Distance Learning Faculty & Staff Books

As an instructional designer and technologist, my goal with this book is remarkably simple, to consolidate and create a job aid for a complex and often frustrating/misunderstood quest. Rather than hunting all over the Internet, the map, tips, and information about the game are all gathered and summarized here. Also, rather than being an obscure Easter Egg in Amazon (like an Earnest Cline/James Halliday egg, especially on the hidden Pacman arcade game), I want to make this guide easier to find. Along with the nostalgia, classic video games and the technology and applied message design behind their creation ...


Using A Smart Phone To Learn Spanish: Does It Work And Will Students Use It?, Andrew J. DeMil, Alysha Assaf, Ryan Cragun 2021 University of Tampa

Using A Smart Phone To Learn Spanish: Does It Work And Will Students Use It?, Andrew J. Demil, Alysha Assaf, Ryan Cragun

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Over time, mobile devices have penetrated the classroom, requiring new and beneficial ways to implement classroom instruction. Research suggests that Short Message Service (SMS) based instruction is an effective tool for acquiring second language (L2) vocabulary and idiom knowledge (Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu,). Additionally, studies have found that students believe that mobile learning (m-learning) is beneficial to acquiring a second language (Cavus & Ibrahim; Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu, 2008). This study examined whether m-learning can lead to Spanish vocabulary familiarity and if sentence comprehension outperforms reading definitions. Participants were 29 native English speakers studying Spanish as a second language at the intermediate level. Learners ...

Mental Health Consequences Of Covid-19 Media Coverage: The Need For Effective Crisis Communication Practices, Zhaohui Su, Dean Mcdonnell, Jun Wen, Metin Kozak, Jaffar Abbas, Sabina Šegalo, Xiaoshan Li, Junaid Ahmad, Ali Cheshmehzangi, Yuyang Cai, Ling Yang, Yu Tao Xiang

ECU Publications Post 2013

© 2021, The Author(s). During global pandemics, such as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), crisis communication is indispensable in dispelling fears, uncertainty, and unifying individuals worldwide in a collective fight against health threats. Inadequate crisis communication can bring dire personal and economic consequences. Mounting research shows that seemingly endless newsfeeds related to COVID-19 infection and death rates could considerably increase the risk of mental health problems. Unfortunately, media reports that include infodemics regarding the influence of COVID-19 on mental health may be a source of the adverse psychological effects on individuals. Owing partially to insufficient crisis communication practices, media and news ...


¿Escuchas El Susurro? Tras Las Huellas De La Llorona Blanca En J-Ok'el., María Teresa Grazón Martínez 2020 Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas

¿Escuchas El Susurro? Tras Las Huellas De La Llorona Blanca En J-Ok'el., María Teresa Grazón Martínez

Journal of Hispanic and Lusophone Whiteness Studies (HLWS)

El presente artículo analiza la película J-Ok´el (2007) bajo la lente de la blanquitud. Dicha coproducción mexicanoestadounidense recrea la historia de la Llorona dándole un giro respecto a su figura, ya no se caracteriza como una mujer indígena o mestiza, sino blanca. De esta manera se abona al análisis de la blanquitud a través de la reflexión sobre las condiciones históricas, sociales y ficcionales, geopolíticamente situadas en el sureste mexicano –Chiapas, en específico, San Cristóbal de Las Casas– que permiten la aparición de un fantasma que no reta el orden colonial establecido y sus relatos hegemónicos, sino que, al ...


An Awakening Of The Hawaiian Way Of Life: Framing Kapu Aloha And The Mauna Kea Controversy, Kyleigh Manuel-Sagon 2020 Western Oregon University

An Awakening Of The Hawaiian Way Of Life: Framing Kapu Aloha And The Mauna Kea Controversy, Kyleigh Manuel-Sagon

PURE Insights

This essay undertakes a framing and melodramatic analysis of the media coverage of Mauna Kea and the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). The kiaʻi, known as protestors in the media, have prevailed through the attempts to resume the construction of this large telescope. More specifically, framing of the news media contextualizes the TMT controversy. The framing features selectivity and partiality in the news articles, mainly excluding the Native Hawaiian voice. Then, the melodramatic rhetoric elucidates a frame unique to the Hawaiian people also known as their philosophy of kapu aloha demonstrated in their social media accounts. Melodrama functions as the oppositional ...

Mysteries Solved And Unsolved In The Search For The Missing Cryptoqueen, Claudia Calhoun 2020 University of Wollongong

Mysteries Solved And Unsolved In The Search For The Missing Cryptoqueen, Claudia Calhoun

RadioDoc Review

The Missing Cryptoqueen, produced for BBC Sounds by Jamie Bartlett and Georgia Catt, investigates the cryptocurrency scam fronted by Dr. Ruja Ignatova, self-described “cryptoqueen.” The series benefits from the engrossing complexity of a sprawling conspiracy: The podcasters travel across continents to find both the scammers and their victims, making important stops in the U.K., Germany, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, and Uganda. The series also benefits from its own breathless narration, which keeps listeners in the present-tense of the storytelling. This was an especially compelling series for the large audience who listened as the weekly episodes were released, as the series ...

Cambodian Family Albums: Tian's "L'Année Du Lièvre", Angelica P. So 2020 Emory University

Cambodian Family Albums: Tian's "L'Année Du Lièvre", Angelica P. So

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

This article explores how Franco-Cambodian cartoonist Tian’s graphic novel, L’année du lièvre [Year of the Rabbit], represents second-generation postmemory in the form of, what I call, a “Cambodian family album,” or a personal-collective archive. The album serves to convey to subsequent generations: 1) the history of the Cambodian genocide, 2) the collective memories of pre-1975 Cambodia preceding the Khmer Rouge takeover of Phnom Penh, and 3) the Cambodian humanitarian crisis and exodus of the 1970s-1990s. The conceptualization of the family album is derived from the literal translation, from Khmer into English, of the term “photo album” – “book designated ...


War Of The Moon, Bibiana Medkova 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

War Of The Moon, Bibiana Medkova

Masters Theses

Space, in the post-World War context, was the new frontier of ‘global’ dominion. Space Race of the 1950s was a competition to signal technological capability and military strength. The objective of War of the Moon is to unpack the motivation for Moon race in 1950s. What did countries have to gain politically, economically, socially and technologically by conquering space and landing on the moon. At what cost? Who financed it, and where did the labor, land, and raw materials sourced come from. And how it was used to accomplish said landing. Space security is a massive aspect of all current ...


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 ...


Setting The Record Straight: Citizens’ First Amendment Right To Video Police In Public, Denae Lynn D'Arcy 2020 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Setting The Record Straight: Citizens’ First Amendment Right To Video Police In Public, Denae Lynn D'Arcy

Annual Research Symposium of the College of Communication and Information

There is an alarming trend in the United States of citizens being arrested for videotaping police officers in public. Cell phones with video capabilities are ubiquitous and people are using their phones to document the behavior of police officers in a public place. The goal of this paper is to study the trend of citizen arrests currently in the news and recommend solutions to the problem of encroachment upon First Amendment rights through case law.


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 ...


Poetic Walking Across Mobile Boundaries: Contemporary Southeast Asian Narratives In The Work Of Trinh T. Minh-Ha And Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Weiying Yu 2020 University of San Francisco

Poetic Walking Across Mobile Boundaries: Contemporary Southeast Asian Narratives In The Work Of Trinh T. Minh-Ha And Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Weiying Yu

Master's Projects and Capstones

This research investigates how personal politics, the poetics of cinematic narrative form, and current Southeast Asian landscapes are embodied in the work of filmmakers/artists Trinh T. Minh-ha (b. 1952, Hanoi, Vietnam) and Apichatpong Weerasethakul (b. 1970, Bangkok, Thailand). Trinh and Apichatpong’s transnational reflections and radical poetics challenge the West as the authoritative domain of modern knowledge, evoking a border rupture that questions hegemonic definitions of culture, history, geography, and society. Synthesizing art and politics, their works create experimental spaces to navigate the multidimensional consciousness associated with the Asia Pacific and global political issues of immigration, refugeeism, military action ...

Print Culture, Digital Culture, Poetics And Hermeneutics: Discussion With J. Hillis Miller, Liyuan Zhu 2020 Fudan University

Print Culture, Digital Culture, Poetics And Hermeneutics: Discussion With J. Hillis Miller, Liyuan Zhu

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

This paper is a response to Hillis Miller’s query on the author’s essay “Hillis Miller on the End of Literature.” The author basically agrees with Miller’s view on the shift from print culture to digital culture, explaining the special cultural context under which Chinese scholars emphasize the visual turn. Based on the rapid development of Chinese online literature, the author points out that print culture does not rival but coexists with digital culture. On the other hand, drawing on Aristotle’s Poetics and insights of several leading figures of contemporary hermeneutics, the author contends that Miller’s ...
