Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s, Marcelline Hutton 2015 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s, Marcelline Hutton

Zea E-Books

The stories of Russian educated women, peasants, prisoners, workers, wives, and mothers of the 1920s and 1930s show how work, marriage, family, religion, and even patriotism helped sustain them during harsh times.

The Russian Revolution launched an economic and social upheaval that released peasant women from the control of traditional extended families. It promised urban women equality and created opportunities for employment and higher education. Yet, the revolution did little to eliminate Russian patriarchal culture, which continued to undermine women’s social, sexual, economic, and political conditions. Divorce and abortion became more widespread, but birth control remained limited, and sexual ...

A Poetic Poioumenon: Coterie And Ekphrasis In David Lehman's "The Breeders' Cup", Anna Beth Rowe 2015 University of Southern Mississippi

A Poetic Poioumenon: Coterie And Ekphrasis In David Lehman's "The Breeders' Cup", Anna Beth Rowe

Master's Theses

David Lehman’s poem “The Breeders’ Cup” uses cross-generational coterie and ekphrasis to create a poetic poioumenon. When read in terms of art criticism, Lehman’s “The Breeders’ Cup” models creative processes from the past and calls for a rehabilitative ethic in postmodern poetics. Lehman follows the ekphrastic form, which associates a poem with a work of visual art, from his New York School predecessor Frank O’Hara. “The Breeders’ Cup” addresses Édouard Manet’s 1865 painting Olympia through ekphrasis, and the painting of a prostitute becomes a patron saint of parody for postmodern poetics. The poem introduces lust as ...


Mining And Civilization, Fathi Habashi 2015 Laval University, Quebec City, Canada

Mining And Civilization, Fathi Habashi

Fathi Habashi

Ancient ruins or an ancient stone statue recalls the work of miners who brought the material from a quarry so that the sculptor can create a work of art. Carving of massive stone blocks and piercing tunnels in mountains are arts in which the same tools of mining are used and mining engineers are involved. Studying history of mining necessitates also the study of archaeology, art, architecture, and world history in general since it is the history of civilization. The pyramids of Egypt, the gold of Tut Ankh Amoun, the Coloseum in Rome, the Taj Mahal in Agra, and the ...


Standing At The Gates Of Heaven And Hell, Julianne Henderson 2015 University of San Francisco

Standing At The Gates Of Heaven And Hell, Julianne Henderson

julianne e. henderson ms.

:: Gates of Heaven and Hell ::

I am surrounded by Auguste Rodin’s angels and demons. One gets the sense that for every muscle employed to wrap them in their own embrace, there is an unattended muscle somewhere else that has resulted in a mid-motion limb stretching or groping for something or someone else that may or may not be within reach. I am in awe of the fluidity that each of them represents and immortalizes.

Some force led me to this place that houses the Gates of Hell the day after I sat before Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise. The ...

The Intersection Of Art And Medicine: Tanya Sheehan Breaks Down The Boundaries Between Disciplines, Gerry Boyle

Colby Magazine

Tanya Sheehan arrived at Georgetown University intending to become a medical doctor. She aced her organic chemistry lab section, eventually was turned off by the rote memorization the program emphasized, and then discovered art history and film studies. "That changed everything," she said, "but I never forgot about science and medicine."


Fr 371 Writing The Self / L'Ecriture De Soi, 2015 Colby College

Fr 371 Writing The Self / L'Ecriture De Soi

Colby College Museum of Art Digital Archive

In the spring of 2015, Colby students from the course FR 371 "L'écriture de soi / Writing the Self," taught by Assistant Professor Audrey Brunetaux, analyzed a variety of written and visual texts to understand how French writers, artists, and filmmakers conceptualize the notion of the "self." Research projects on Alex Katz, James McNeill Whistler and Mary Cassatt, accessible in French and English below, enabled students to apply the concepts and theories from class to textual and visual material in the Colby College Museum of Art.

Abstraction And Libidinal Nationalism In The Works Of John Boyle And Diana Thorneycroft, Matthew Purvis 2015 The University of Western Ontario

Abstraction And Libidinal Nationalism In The Works Of John Boyle And Diana Thorneycroft, Matthew Purvis

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis examines the work of Canadian artists John Boyle and Diana Thorneycroft. It analyzes their imagery in aesthetic, political, and strictly materialist terms using the theoretical work of Wilhelm Worringer, Wyndham Lewis and Gilles Deleuze. Both artists have appropriated elements of Canadian history (historical figures, cultural archetypes and aspects of material culture) to create art works that are alienating and abstract. With Boyle, this has involved constructing a wall of noise to operate as a territorial marker, one that both parodies and reinforces the traditions of the nation. His art has been one devoted to nonsense, nihilism and a ...
