The Modern Book: The Forms, The Essence, The Experience, Melanie J. Renton
Capstones and Theses
The digital era has changed the way we humans read a book. No longer are words confined to a bound leaflet of pages sitting on a bookshelf. Now, technology has transformed the mediums upon which books are written. Electronic books are sweeping the book market, digitizing the stories to display them to a larger audience. Audiobooks are whispering tales in our ears, resting our eyes while igniting our imaginations. With stories jumping off the traditional medium of print, we are able to experience the new possibilities of how books are published, each with its own advantages and drawbacks. This essay ...

Reflect & Connect- Helping Students Make The Most Of Their Study Abroad Experience, 2016 SIT Graduate Institute
Reflect & Connect- Helping Students Make The Most Of Their Study Abroad Experience, Rachael L. Dean
In our world of internationalization and global networking, students that study abroad have a definite advantage when transitioning into the professional world after graduating college. However, when asked, many have a difficult time articulating and marketing their international experience. When transitioning back to the United States and campus culture, students also go through varying degrees of reverse culture shock. They want to talk about their experience and share their newfound love of another culture, however many run into disinterested friends and glossy eyes.
The Education Abroad office at Central Palm International University is looking to expand their outreach and commitment ...

This paper analyzes what has worked and what has not worked in either state in providing ...

Influence Of Students’ Industrial Training On The Academic Performance Of Mass Communication Students In Babcock University Ogun State, Nigeria, Ifeoma Helen Ayeni
Andrews Research Conference Programs
There is a school of thought that suggests that tertiary institutions cannot and should not be the only source of training for future journalists; proponents argued that there is a need for the gown to reach out to town in terms of curriculum development and delivery so that both the philosophy and theory taught in the classroom might conform to the expectations and needs of the society. The study therefore examined the influence of industrial training on mass communication students of Babcock University. The study adopts the survey research method with questionnaire as the research instrument which was administered on ...

The narrative was constructed directly following the sudden death of my father, which had a direct effect on my ability to produce artistic work.

Two Thousand Words: Aphrodite And Kali Reimagined, 2016 Dominican University of California
Two Thousand Words: Aphrodite And Kali Reimagined, Aleta Walsh
Senior Theses and Capstone Projects
Kali and Aphrodite are archetypal goddess images that have stood the test of time because of their universal symbolism. Each represents aspects of human nature and of life itself. Although their representations may be particular to their cultural origins, the symbolic significance of these two goddesses can be recognized universally. For example, Aphrodite is the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality. In artistic renderings of her myth, she is often depicted in the form of a beautiful young woman rising from the sea at her birth or bathing near water. On the other hand, Kali is a Hindu ...
A Reception History And Conductor’S Guide To William Grant Still’S And They Lynched Him On A Tree, 2016 University of Southern Mississippi
A Reception History And Conductor’S Guide To William Grant Still’S And They Lynched Him On A Tree, Harlan Zackery Jr.
William Grant Still’s lynching drama …And They Lynched Him on a Tree is a rarely performed work for white choir, black choir, contralto soloist, narrator and orchestra. The title and subject matter of the work have been significant hurdles for many conductors who have considered the piece for performance. Additionally, the piece exists in several editions, and among each edition there are inconsistencies in terms of scoring and text, further making the piece difficult to program. Further, the piece, published as a choral ballad, is often labeled as a cantata, oratorio, ballad or play. It is true that the ...
National Human Rights Museums: An Engine For Social Or Economic Growth? A Comparative Analyses Of Conscience Museums Of Canada, Usa And Russia., Shabnam Shermatova
Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD
Human rights have become highly discussed topic and one of the dominant themes in the museum field. The main reason that the idea of social inclusion is popular is that society constructs a sense of reliability and creativity, and hence becomes an important power element in politics. Therefore, social issues can be discussed, constructed and politicized in museums. More specifically, this research will compare and analyze three case studies – Canadian Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg, Canada, Civil and Human Rights Center, Atlanta, USA and GULAG, Perm - 36, Kuchino, Russia).

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
The experimental hip-hop group Death Grips, formed in 2010, quickly rose to prominence and signed with the major label Epic Records in 2012. Their first Epic album, The Money Store, (2012) did well and the band appeared to be settling in to a profitable and productive relationship with the company. Yet in 2013 Death Grips released their second album, No Love Deep Web, online, for free, and without authorization from the label. Despite this breach of contract, Epic Records did not do the expected and seek to enforce their contract or sue for damages. Instead, Death Grips were released from ...

Understanding Social Presence And Subject Position In Online Environments, 2016 University of Tennessee - Knoxville
Understanding Social Presence And Subject Position In Online Environments, Michael Miceli
EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement
Within various fields of linguistics, language is perceived as a social mechanism, always carrying the meanings and values of community, social groups, networks, culture, identity, and more. Language is at the heart of our interaction with the world around us. In a gaming environment, this translates in discursively created actions and interactions that regulate the relationships between players and, consequently, the outcome of the game. In order to be successful in such environments, players will need to develop a strong social presence, that is to say, the ability to project themselves through their characters in the social community and present ...

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement
Baracksdubs puts words in people’s mouths. Since 2012, this popular YouTube channel has entertained millions through musical mashups of President Obama’s speeches.

I credit Baracksdubs for helping me gain digital media acumen as well as entrepreneurial aptitude. As the channel’s first video came out only a week after conceptualization, the video series is a testament to the ideas that rough prototypes are better than perfect products. YouTube is a great way ...

Through collaboration over a four-month period, Chapman's future teachers and Yorba's junior high journalists engaged a deep writing process to write a series of features, editorials, and news articles, all connected in some way to the overarching theme of safety. Thank you to Ms. Andrea Lopez, Ms. Tracy Knibb, and the Lloyd E. and Elisabeth H. Klein Family Foundation for supporting this project.
