Connecting To The Self: Increasing Self-Awareness In Children With Asd, Development Of A Method, Madison Janke

Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses

Dance/movement therapy is a popular method utilized with the autism spectrum population due to its focus on increasing social skills, developing relationships, improving function, increasing positive body image, and expanding movement repertoire. The literature indicated that mirroring is the most common and most utilized DMT intervention for this population, but it provided minimal alternative dance/movement therapy interventions. The dance/movement therapy method implemented through this research attempted to provide an alternative to mirroring through the creation of a body outline. This method was developed through the theoretical framework of relational-cultural theory, emphasizing the impact that relationships can have ...

Bridging The Gap: Relationship Building Through The Use Of Dance Movement Therapy With Older Adults With Dementia: Literature Review, Goni Rubel Zlotnik 2020 Lesley University

Bridging The Gap: Relationship Building Through The Use Of Dance Movement Therapy With Older Adults With Dementia: Literature Review, Goni Rubel Zlotnik

Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses

The purpose of this capstone thesis is to examine how the use of dance movement therapy (DMT) can be a beneficial intervention for relationship building when working with older adults with dementia. Studies have shown that dementia is a state where body and mind are in distress (Hill, 2009; Karkou & Meekums, 2017). Therefore, caring and understanding of dementia treatment is vital for maintaining relationships and developing new ones. Person-centered care (PCC) has been used in this thesis as a theoretical psychological framework to support relationship building with elders with dementia. Karkou and Meekums (2017) suggested that due to the condition ...

Through The Lens Of Koreans: The Influence Of Media On Perceptions Of Feminism, Neha Cariappa

Master's Projects and Capstones

Regardless of country and culture, the media has the power to influence the opinions and perceptions of its viewers. This project evaluates specific Korean movies—and the reactions of South Koreans to gender representations in films that are considered “feminist”—along with the variety show genre, which also tends to reinforce gender stereotypes and imbalances. With these media representations as a framework, this research explores the impact of the internet in forwarding feminist views along with unearthing the reactions of Koreans. Given the anonymity of the internet and social media, these platforms allow for honest expression and counterpoints to sexist ...


Alternative Methods, Hunter Stabler 2020 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Alternative Methods, Hunter Stabler

LSU Master's Theses

ABSTRACT

In the realm of precognitive artmaking, the artist’s role is that of an antenna. One must be receptive to the subtle, invisible flow of creative novelty in order to participate in the involuntary channeling of new ideas, new processes, and alternative methods of creative production. Carving out new territory within the realm of static art is a primary objective for my artistic process. By utilizing digital fabrication tools, paired with my affinity for intricate craft and optical metagrobolization, I have created a body of work that invents alternative processes and unique aesthetic languages.

Digital imaging, digital modeling and ...

The Spiritual Nature Of The Italian Renaissance, Kaitlyn Kenney 2020 Liberty University

The Spiritual Nature Of The Italian Renaissance, Kaitlyn Kenney

Senior Honors Theses

This study seeks to investigate the influence of faith in the emergence and development of the Italian Renaissance, in both the artwork and writing of the major artists and thinkers of the day, and the impact that new expressions of faith had on the viewing public. While the Renaissance is often labeled as a secular movement by modern scholars, this interpretation is largely due to the political motives of the Medici family who dominated Florence as the center of this artistic rebirth, on and off again throughout the period. On close examination, the philosophical and creative undercurrents of the movement ...


Apparatgeist And Mobile Communication: Considering Interpersonal Communication Practices, Lisa Enright 2020 Duquesne University

Apparatgeist And Mobile Communication: Considering Interpersonal Communication Practices, Lisa Enright

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Mobile communication is embedded into our daily life increasing our connection to social networks. The development of mobile communication occurred during the second half of the twentieth century and has become domesticated into everyday life. One consequence of the widespread adoption of mobile communication device use is an increase in connectivity. This increase in connection has led to a shift in interpersonal relationships. People now must be aware of when to connect and disconnect to develop meaningful relationships in private, public, and social realms. This project seeks an understanding of how the consequence of increased connectivity and the development of ...


"Is It A True Thing": The Pastoral Mode In Shakespeare's "As You Like It", Dianna Rahmey 2020 Rowan University

"Is It A True Thing": The Pastoral Mode In Shakespeare's "As You Like It", Dianna Rahmey

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This paper argues that Shakespeare's "As You Like It" is illustrative of the necessary misappropriation of nature embedded within a successful pastoral narrative. The pastoral genre is predicated upon the necessity of a green world where characters can free themselves from typical, societal restraints. In "As You Like It" it is not the way the characters are positively affected by the green world that is noteworthy, but rather the way the green world is negatively affected by the characters. From the moment the characters arrive in the forest of Arden, they remain set on locating art in a supposedly ...

"Queen Sugar": Sweetening Black Representation One Show At A Time, Doris Njeri Kariuki

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The topic of representation in the media is a conversation that is on-going. Most of the arguments are still about how there seems to be a prevalence of negative representation of people of color, especially women, in the media; from characters in series, movies and even the portrayal of female stars in reality television shows such as "Love and Hip Hop" using concepts like "That Hoe Over There" (Lundy, 2018, p. 62). Presently, a more positive perspective has been illustrated through the television show "Queen Sugar," which is executively produced by Ava DuVernay. Through the rhetorical critic lenses of patriarchy ...


Undoing The Leges: Marketization And Citizens United, Emily Ann Donlevy 2020 Roanoke College

Undoing The Leges: Marketization And Citizens United, Emily Ann Donlevy

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission was hailed by some as a victory for free speech and economic freedom, but others decried the outcome as a prioritization of corporate interests over the individual. What both groups failed to notice was that a shift had occurred in law itself: the content was no longer legal or political. Using the work of Wendy Brown and David Harvey, I will track the cause and implications of this shift. Brown describes the process of marketization, in which the content of the political is hollowed out and replaced ...

The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich

Information Systems Undergraduate Honors Theses

There has long been an established relationship between art and business, finding its roots in the Industrial Revolution when the effects of arts on the economy were first explored. Since then, creative economies have been influenced by adaptation of businesses through urban development and revitalization and by continuous growth in artistic and cultural spaces. Capturing the relationship between arts and urban design, cultural districts establish strong economic communities within vastly creative, business- and culture-centered spaces. Current research provides insight to the economic, social, and cultural outcomes of creative economies.

As a contribution to that narrative, I will use this analysis ...

The Impact Of Healing Arts On Students At The University Of Nebraska At Omaha, Wala Albahrani 2020 University of Nebraska at Omaha

The Impact Of Healing Arts On Students At The University Of Nebraska At Omaha, Wala Albahrani

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

A recently emerging way to decrease stress of individuals is by practicing therapeutic art. The aim of this form of therapy is to provide a sense of expression and relief to individuals who suffer from constant anxiety and stress. Therapeutic art can be performed by a therapy session where an individual express themselves using art to communicate their thoughts and emotions. Since this form of therapy does not require artistic sense or skills, many individuals can benefit from it. Moreover, another form of this therapy is surrounding stressed individuals with calming art, such as photography, music, sculpture, and painting, etc ...


Reconciliation And Resistance From The Ground Up: The Power Of Affect In Chicago's Community Gardens, Olivia Lee 2020 The University of Illinois at Chicago

Reconciliation And Resistance From The Ground Up: The Power Of Affect In Chicago's Community Gardens, Olivia Lee

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Chicago is the second city -- after Milwaukee in segregation. In the impoverished, primarily black neighborhoods on the South Side of the city, community gardens are a spatial break with and grassroots activism against the grim landscape of economic, structural, and physical violence. But what is the gardens' social valence when they seem unable to countervail the corrupt city politics, not to mention domestic and global economies which circumscribe the courses of the residents' lives? Drawing on affect theory, I illustrate how the slow and uneventful healing of personal tragedies in Chicago's community gardens is a quiet, nascent resistance against ...

Perfecting Blackness: An Analysis Of Respectability And Security In Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give, Precious Thompson

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Respectability politics are a set of codes that were created by many late 19th and early 20th century black thinkers and philosophers such as W.E.B. Dubois and Nannie Helen Burroughs. This idea garnered support from prominent members of the black community in the hopes of proving black humanity to a racist majority American culture. Author Angie Thomas critiques respectability politics and police brutality in her 2017 young adult novel The Hate U Give. Though Starr Carter, the novel's protagonist, experiences police brutality first hand, the novel is about how she navigates between her school Williamson Prep and ...


Black Evangelicals And The Democratic Party: Intersectionality And The Myth Of The Monolithic Black Vote, Meanna Gray 2020 Johns Hopkins University

Black Evangelicals And The Democratic Party: Intersectionality And The Myth Of The Monolithic Black Vote, Meanna Gray

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The intersectional identity of race, class, gender, and religious beliefs complicates the introduction of presidential candidates whose identities do not uniformly prescribe to the traditional white male identity. The introduction of Barack Obama as a presidential candidate was a critical paradigm shift in the relationship between voters and presidential candidates because he was the first candidate whose race did not ascribe to this political norm. There exists a misguided notion in academia that Black-identifying voters represent a monolithic voting bloc that conforms to a singular political identity. A key variable in understanding Obama's pivotal role in Black-identifying voting behavior ...


Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogenitiety In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr 2020 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogenitiety In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The idea of a need for oneness in the black community at large has been unrefuted and celebrated. This notion has been supported by many popular figures and paradigms, in particular, the Pan Africanism paradigm, which calls for the unity of all black people regardless of origin, on all levels and aspects of life. In this research the author aims to show that the assumption of homogeneity in the black community is the root of tensions in the black community between African Americans and black immigrants. Through an autoethnography, the researcher a black immigrant living in America argues that negating ...
