Anthropology Faculty Publications
Archaeological projects increasingly collect airborne LiDAR data to use as a remote sensing tool for survey and analysis. Publication possibilities for LiDAR datasets, however, are limited due to the large size and often proprietary nature of the data. Fortunately, web-based, geographic information systems (WebGIS) that can securely manage temporal and spatial data hold great promise as virtual research environments for working with and publishing LiDAR data. To test this and to obtain new data for archaeological research, in 2013, the MayaArch3D Project (www.mayaarch3d.org) collected LiDAR data for the archaeological site of Copan, Honduras. Results include: 1) more accurate ...

Arts 344, Padma Kaimal
From rock-cut halls carved into cliffs to elaborately ornamented constructions with multiple interior spaces, the buildings that have housed worship of the Goddess, Shiva, Vishnu, and other deities of the Hindu pantheon honor the ideals of the divine palace and of the silent cave embedded in a mountain. This course will explore what characteristics the wide range of Hindu temples share, how they vary from one region to another, and how they changed from the 3rd century BCE to 12th century CE. What do they share with structures for Buddhist, Jaina, and Muslim worship? How did ritual shape buildings and ...

So You Think You Can Model? A Guide To Building And Evaluating Archaeological Simulation Models Of Dispersals, 2015 University of Southampton
So You Think You Can Model? A Guide To Building And Evaluating Archaeological Simulation Models Of Dispersals, Iza Romanowska
Human Biology Open Access Pre-Prints
With the current surge of simulation studies in archaeology there is a growing concern for the lack of engagement and feedback between modellers and domain specialists. To facilitate this dialogue I present a compact guide to the simulation modelling process applied to a common research topic and the focus of this special issue of Human Biology—human dispersals. The process of developing a simulation is divided into nine steps grouped in three phases. The conceptual phase consists of identifying research questions (step 1) and finding the most suitable method (step 2), designing the general framework and the resolution of the ...
Discover Joyce's Dublin By Reading And Running, 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology
Discover Joyce's Dublin By Reading And Running, Barry Sheehan
James Joyce told his friend Frank Budgen. “‘I want’ said Joyce, as we were walking down the Universitätstrasse, ‘to give a picture of Dublin so complete that if the city one day suddenly disappeared from the earth it could be reconstructed out of my book.’” (Budgen, 1960, p.67, 68).
This research looks at the relevance of Dublin to Joyce’s writings and to the relevance of Joyce’s writings to Dublin. It is concerned with the virtual Dublin of Joyce’s writings, the physical manifestation of Dublin over time, and the relationships between them.
Numerous scholars read and analyse ...

Female Artists And The Spanish Pavilion In The International Exhibition In 1937, 2015 Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas
Female Artists And The Spanish Pavilion In The International Exhibition In 1937, Carmen Gaitán Salinas
This article aims to elucidate why the majority of Spanish female artists did not participate in the Spanish Pavilion of the International Exhibition in 1937. Only two of them took part in this event. However, there were a lot of female artists in that period. In fact, some artists had a promising career, but it seems that they did not dare to be involved in this exhibition in the Spanish Pavilion. In some cases, the no participation of some female artists could have been a simple coincidence, although it should be pointed out that there could be other reasons related ...

Dialectical Despair: Gherasim Luca, Gellu Naum, And The Hazards Of A Non-Oedipal Life, 2015 American University of Beirut
Dialectical Despair: Gherasim Luca, Gellu Naum, And The Hazards Of A Non-Oedipal Life, Catherine Hansen
This article looks closely at an argument that took place in the 1940s between the Romanian Surrealists Gherasim Luca and Gellu Naum. This argument centered on the question of whether love can ever act as a transformative social force, or whether it is too fatally embedded within the existing social situation ever to work in this way. In the 40s Luca had just published a series of texts laying out his “anti-oedipal” theory of love and revolutionary action, and Naum responded to this with his sharply critical “Inventatorii banderolei” (The Inventors of the Banderole), which to my knowledge has never ...

Pricing In Opaque Markets: Paintings Old And New, 2015 Tennessee State University
Pricing In Opaque Markets: Paintings Old And New, Sharon V. Thach
Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings
Pricing is one of the more difficult aspects of marketing management and poses interesting problems for economists trying to account for what are really a collection of microsales that are not well reflected in aggregate macroterms. The developed models and processes work best for mass produced products but grow increasingly problematic when products are intangible services or unique goods. This paper looks at paintings as a product within a specific “industry” , but many of the issues are similar to those in the professional services (law, medicine, education) and auxiliary services (consulting, IT outsourcing, insurance). There are also aspects of this ...
The ‘Continuing Misfortune’ Of Automatism In Early Surrealism, 2015 Radboud University, The Netherlands
The ‘Continuing Misfortune’ Of Automatism In Early Surrealism, Tessel M. Bauduin
In the 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism surrealist leader André Breton (1896-1966) defined Surrealism as ‘psychic automatism in its pure state,’ positioning ‘psychic automatism’ as both a concept and a technique. This definition followed upon an intense period of experimentation with various forms of automatism among the proto-surrealist group; predominantly automatic writing, but also induced dream states. This article explores how surrealist ‘psychic automatism’ functioned as a mechanism for communication, or the expression of thought as directly as possible through the unconscious, in the first two decades of Surrealism. It touches upon automatic writing, hysteria as an automatic bodily performance of ...
The Virago, Hermaphrodite, And Jan Gossaert: A Metamorphosis In Netherlandish Art, 2015 University of Kentucky
The Virago, Hermaphrodite, And Jan Gossaert: A Metamorphosis In Netherlandish Art, Heidi Caudill
In this paper, I examine the origins of the 1516 painting The Metamorphosis of Hermaphroditus and the Nymph Salmacis by the artist Jan Gossaert. Because there are no known representations of the myth in post-classical European art before Gossaert’s version, the existence of the painting provokes questions about its patronage, background, and possible implications. Derived from the myth of Salmacis and Hermaphroditus in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the focus of the work is on the physical struggle between a male and female figure. The artist casts these individuals into the roles of victim and aggressor, with the female as the ...
Pigs Feet, 2015 St. Margaret's
Pigs Feet, Jesse W. Standlea
The STEAM Journal
My sculpture “Pigs Feet” has literal foundations upon casts of live pig’s feet. I locally sourced the pig’s feet before casting them. My sculpture makes use of a once cutting edge casting technology, alginate. Alginate molds were once the standard in dentistry. Alginate is an appealing casting material as it is refined from brown seaweeds, is both food and skin safe, it is suitable for educators, for artists and engineers alike.
The Perfect Machine: The Reason Behind The Anatomical Studies Of Leonardo Da Vinci, 2015 University of Kentucky
The Perfect Machine: The Reason Behind The Anatomical Studies Of Leonardo Da Vinci, Amanda M. Cothern
The legacy of Leonardo da Vinci is most often characterized by the works of his brush — however, there is more to Leonardo than what meets the art lover’s eye. His notebooks overflow with scientific studies, the most amazing of which are his detailed drawings of human anatomy. Scholars have long assumed that Leonardo dissected corpses in order to better represent the human form in his painting. In this paper, I counter that assumption, making the following points:
- Leonardo’s anatomical findings did not significantly influence his painting.
- Leonardo was an accomplished scientist and engineer.
- Leonardo applied his knowledge of ...

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