Airborne Lidar Acquisition, Post-Processing And Accuracy-Checking For A 3d Webgis Of Copan, Honduras, Jennifer von Schwerin, Heather Richards-Rissetto, Fabio Remondino, Maria Grazia Spera, Michael Auer, Nicolas Billen, Lukas Loos, Laura Stelson, Markus Reindel 2016 German Archaeological Institute

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 ...


El Narrador En La Ciudad Dentro De La Temática De Los Cuentos De Emigración Y Transición Puertorriqueña (1948-1968), Sandra Margarita Stern 2016 Graduate Center, City University of New York

El Narrador En La Ciudad Dentro De La Temática De Los Cuentos De Emigración Y Transición Puertorriqueña (1948-1968), Sandra Margarita Stern

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)

As a result of the political and economic upheavals in Puerto Rico’s governing structures during the mid-twentieth century, changes occurred in the social and cultural contexts as well. Rapid industrialization and installation of modernity became the goals for the island, which resulted in mass movement of people from agricultural rural communities to cities, namely, San Juan and New York. A reflection of this phenomenon appears in different genres of literary production during this time. This new form of writing, with its innovative approaches, grew and found preference mostly in the short story.

This dissertation focuses on the stories of ...

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este trabajo pretende hacer hincapié en que la metodología de CALL, mediante los Módulos de Desarrollo, Implementación y Evaluación, debe explorarse aún más con motivos de presentarles experiencias educativas significativas a los estudiantes de lenguas extranjeras. Se postula, debido al aumento en el uso de aplicaciones multimediales para otros campos de estudio, que la utilidad de esta nueva tecnología para la didáctica de lenguas puede lograr grandes alcances, promocionando así la enseñanza-aprendizaje diversificada. Se intenta mostrar el diseño de un software docente-educativo basado en la metodología de CALL que centra su atención, principalmente, en la expresión oral, una de las ...


Indigenous Trauma In Mainstream Peru In Claudia Llosa’S The Milk Of Sorrow., REBECA MASEDA 2016 UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA ANCHORAGE

Indigenous Trauma In Mainstream Peru In Claudia Llosa’S The Milk Of Sorrow., Rebeca Maseda

Dissidences

Despite winning several international awards and being praised by the critics, the Peruvian film La teta asustada (The Milk of Sorrow, Claudia Llosa, 2008) was deemed racist by some blogospheres and critics. The indigenous peoples have not traditionally controlled their own representations, and thus have been subject to misrepresentations; exoticization, criminalization, infantilization, etc. This paper offers a nuanced multivalent analysis that regards not only images and stereotypes, but also voices, points of view, music and mise-en-scène, in order to argue that The Milk of Sorrow provides an ethnocentric view. Several trauma authors speak of the moral obligation of talking about ...

The Amazon In Brazilian Speculative Fiction: Utopia And Trauma, M. Elizabeth Ginway 2015 University of South Florida

The Amazon In Brazilian Speculative Fiction: Utopia And Trauma, M. Elizabeth Ginway

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

There are two key moments when the Amazon is used as the setting for Brazilian science fiction, both during periods of dictatorship in the twentieth century. The first takes place during the authoritarian government of Getúlio Vargas (1930-1945), the second after the decades-long push for modernization and technological change imposed by the military government from 1964 to 1985. My study shows that, for writers of the first half of the twentieth century, the Amazon is a place of adventure, a setting for stories whose imaginative events ignore the region’s anthropology, history and indigenous cultures. Among the early Brazilian Amazonian ...

Recuerdos Que Curan. Memoria Y Ciencia Ficción En Chile, Kaitlin R. Sommerfeld, Juan C. Toledano

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

A través del análisis de la novela Synco de Jorge Baradit y el cuento "Exerion" de Pablo Castro, se propone el uso de la literatura de ciencia ficción como vehículo para la curación de traumas producidos por la dictadura chilena de Augusto Pinochet. Los autores creen que a través del extrañamiento y la heterotopía, la ciencia ficción puede ser útil y pertinente a lo que se ha venido a llamar como literatura del trauma.

Freedom For Ramsey Muniz, Chicano Political Prisoner, Ruben B. Botello Jd

Ruben B Botello JD

SUBJECT: Ramsey Muniz, Prisoner #40288-115 Mr. President: We pray you and your loved ones are doing well. The 1994 Three Strikes law used, to sentence Mr. Ramsey Muniz (Federal Prisoner #40288-115) should never have been applied to his case according to U.S. Assistant Attorney General Jo Ann Harris. (see her below 1995 Memo to all U.S. lawyers) Furthermore, this federal Three Strikes law now held unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, in Johnson vs. United States, June 26, 2015 (see http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/13-7120_p86b.pdf). It was enacted, to put serious violent felons behind ...

Los Héroes De Macondo: Una Investigación Del Tema De Heroes En Cien Años De Soledad, John S. Oliveras 2015 Clark University

Los Héroes De Macondo: Una Investigación Del Tema De Heroes En Cien Años De Soledad, John S. Oliveras

Scholarly Undergraduate Research Journal at Clark

Cien años de soledad es un aviso de lo que ha de venir para latinoamérica. En esta investigación, comprobaremos que García Márquez sitúa a cada uno de sus lectores como personajes principales en su obra. El libro está supuesto a llamarnos a la aventura, y crear en nosostros un espíritu de héroe. Usando una reserva basta de diferentes investigadores literarios esperamos argumentar que mediante los temas y personajes centrales, el autor construye y define lo que es un héroe, y espera que sus lectores se inspiran a ser héroes también.


Reproductive Rights In Latin America: A Case Study Of Guatemala And Nicaragua, Katherine W. Bogen 2015 Clark University

Reproductive Rights In Latin America: A Case Study Of Guatemala And Nicaragua, Katherine W. Bogen

Scholarly Undergraduate Research Journal at Clark

A lack of access to contraceptives and legal abortion for women throughout the nations of Nicaragua and Guatemala creates critical health care problems. Moreover, rural and underprivileged women in Guatemala and Nicaragua are facing greater limitations to birth control access, demonstrating a classist aspect in the global struggle for female reproductive rights. Although some efforts have been made over the past half-century to initiate a dialogue on the failure of medical care in these nations to adequately address issues of maternal mortality and reproductive rights, the women's reproductive health movements of Nicaragua and Guatemala have struggled to reach an ...
