Winter Birches At York Redoubt, Irene Oore 2018 Dalhousie University

Winter Birches At York Redoubt, Irene Oore

The Goose

This painting of Winter Birches at York Redoubt in Halifax, Nova Scotia reflects the grandeur and beauty of the historic site on which it sits and evacuates the fortification from it. York Redoubt, now a National Historic Park, was constructed in 1793 (just as war broke out between Britain and France) on a bluff at the narrowest point on the outer harbour. It overlooks the entrance to Halifax Harbour at Ferguson's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada.


Landscape Series, Young Lee 2018 University of North Georgia

Landscape Series, Young Lee

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

The series of artworks are called Landscape Series. As medium, it incorporates a concept of collage that different figures and shapes constitute an artwork. Each artwork of the series exploits different images of sceneries and composite it with different shapes. Aesthetic and sublime aspects of landscape have inspired numerous artists over centuries. The series intentionally uses images to bring the aspects of landscape to each artwork. The series relates to the theme “The Scientific Method” in a philosophical way. As civilization progress, people often and easily alter or ruin the nature for convenience. Accordingly, it is hard to notice the ...

The Novel As Drama: Staging Theatrical Aspects Of The Narrative In Jane Austen’S Mansfield Park, Ann M. Shanahan 2018 Loyola University Chicago

The Novel As Drama: Staging Theatrical Aspects Of The Narrative In Jane Austen’S Mansfield Park, Ann M. Shanahan

Ann Shanahan

Of Jane Austen's full-length novels, Mansfield Park deals most directly with theatrical subjects, yet it is the least frequently adapted for the stage. Plots, themes, and characters in the novel echo those of the popular late eighteenth century play Lovers' Vows, and the first volume includes a performance of that play as part of a "home theatrical." ·In 2011, I completed a workshop adaptation and staging of Mansfield Park. I used the method of Chamber Theatre founded by Robert Breen, a technique of literary adaptation that retains the narrative voice by use of an embodied narrative and assignment of ...

Playing House: Staging Experiments About Women In Domestic Space, Ann M. Shanahan 2018 Loyola University Chicago

Playing House: Staging Experiments About Women In Domestic Space, Ann M. Shanahan

Ann Shanahan

The relationship between women and the houses they inhabit has been repeatedly explored in literature and drama, where the house operates as a complex, often contradictory referent for women’s social position. The principal location of women’s lives through history, a house represents, on the one hand, a space of restrictions and limitation; and on the other, a creative domain. In drama, playwrights have used the setting of a house to inform conflicts surrounding women’s freedom, and have manipulated spatial dramaturgy to enrich these subjects. As ongoing experiments in the performance of gender, I am staging a series ...


Un-Blocking Hedda And Medea Through Feminist “Play” With Traditional Staging Forms, Ann M. Shanahan 2018 Loyola University Chicago

Un-Blocking Hedda And Medea Through Feminist “Play” With Traditional Staging Forms, Ann M. Shanahan

Ann Shanahan

Hedda walks to the center of the room clutching to her belly a gun wrapped loosely in red and gold leaves. She sinks to the floor, her black satin dress ballooning around her. Only feet away, the audience can see her expression and interpret her thought process. Hedda looks vaguely around the space for an exit. She responds to Judge Brack (Ibsen 246), her focus less on him than on the gun which she lets rise to her line of vision, trailing leaves as it comes. She raises it slowly to her head and pulls the trigger, then falls gently ...

Taking Cues From Online Learning Offline In The Visual Classroom, Kimberly Datchuk 2018 University of Iowa

Taking Cues From Online Learning Offline In The Visual Classroom, Kimberly Datchuk

Art History Pedagogy & Practice

Theories of online learning can inform how academic museums provide a student-centered approach to teaching. Technology has four main advantages for teaching in the museum: it is open-ended, self-paced, collaborative, and empowering. In order to activate the art works and encourage students to contribute their ideas, I have drawn on the best practices of online teaching tools when designing university class visits. The chance to discuss works among themselves enables students to make personal connections to the works and each other. The informal environment of the class visit helps to produce a student-led experience. Encouraging students to ask questions, following ...
