Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr 2009 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Sketch Of A Typology Of Abstract Memristic Machines, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

A typology of memristic machines is sketched. This sketch gives an overview and orientation to the paper “Towards Abstract Memristic Machines”. It also intents to propose a concise systematization of the newly introduced terms and strategies to memristics and morphogrammatics. This sketch is introducing four types of sign-use for four types of machines of fundamentally different paradigms: 1. semiotic, 2. monomorphic, 3. polymorphic and 4. bisimilar abstract machines. Further definitions of abstract machines have to be based on those graphematic notational systems. A realization of such constructions of abstract machines, in contrast to existing abstract machines of the theory of ...


Metalinguistic Awareness, Jonathan Yovel, Elizabeth Mertz 2009 Yale Law School

Metalinguistic Awareness, Jonathan Yovel, Elizabeth Mertz

Jonathan Yovel

Theories of metalanguage have a long and venerable history in a number of traditions, from logic through cognitive science. However in recent years, an exciting new approach to the study of metalanguage - focused upon the issue of metalinguistic awareness - has emerged from empirical research on language pragmatics and metapragmatics. This work moves beyond an older conceptualization of metalanguage as language that talks about language, analyzing in depth how metalanguage also creates, structures, and forms language and ongoing speech. Speakers have varying degrees of awareness of metalanguage as it both refers to and performatively formulates communication. At times, participants explicitly recognize ...

Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

Mieć czy być? Czy chrześcijanie powinni opowiadać się za czy przeciw wolnemu rynkowi? Dlaczego konsumpcjonizm ,,pożera" konsumentów? Dlaczego prezesi wielkich firm nie znają umiaru w zwiększaniu własnych wynagrodzeń? Dlaczego związki zawodowe są coraz słabsze? I dlaczego ulega zatarciu różnica między pracownikiem a niewolnikiem? Ta książka odpowiada nie tylko na te pytania. Jest w niej zawarta także potężna dawka teologicznej refleksji nad zagadnieniami takimi jak Bóg, sprawiedliwość, globalizacja i wolność. Nie brak również konkretnych przykładów rozwiązań gospodarczych, spójnych z życiem w Ciele Chrystusa. A takowe już istnieją i - jak wykazuje Autor - funkcjonują z pożytkiem dla ogółu. Tę rozprawę z przyjemnością przeczytają ...

The Invention Of Common Law Play Right, Jessica Litman 2009 University of Michigan

The Invention Of Common Law Play Right, Jessica Litman

Jessica Litman

In this paper, written for Berkeley’s symposium on the 300th birthday of the Statute of Anne, I explore the history of the common law public performance right in dramatic works. Eaton Drone dubbed the dramatic public performance right “playright” in his 1879 treatise, arguing that just as “copyright” conferred a right to make and sell copies, “playright” conferred a right to perform or “play” a script. I examine case law and customary theatrical practice in England, and find no trace of a common law play right before 1833, when Parliament established a statutory public performance right for plays. Similarly ...


Simon De Passe's Cartographic Portrait Of Captain John Smith And A New England (1616/7), Matthew Edney 2009 University of Southern Maine

Simon De Passe's Cartographic Portrait Of Captain John Smith And A New England (1616/7), Matthew Edney

Matthew H Edney

The article discusses the cartographic portrait titled "John Smith<>New England," designed and engraved by Simon de Passe. George Low has printed the image of adventurer and explorer Captain John Smith in London, England in 1616/1617. The article describes the portrait as an image of a cultural moment in England. The aesthetic fashions of the royal court has defined the forms and tone of English portraiture in the 16th and early 17th century. Also cited is the aim of Smith to persuade people who received the portrait to support his colonizing efforts.


A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia McAndrew 2009 John Carroll University

A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia Mcandrew

Malia McAndrew

This study examines the careers of African American beauty culturists as they worked in the United States, Europe, and Africa between 1945 and 1965. Facing push back at home, African American beauty entrepreneurs frequently sought out international venues that were hospitable and receptive to black Americans in the years following World War II. By strategically using European sites that white Americans regarded as the birthplace of Western fashion and beauty, African American entrepreneurs in the fields of modeling, fashion design, and hair care were able to win accolades and advance their careers. In gaining support abroad, particularly in Europe, these ...

William Penn’S Garland Songs: An Orchestration And Examination Of Music And Text Association, Eric Smedley 2009 University of Washington

William Penn’S Garland Songs: An Orchestration And Examination Of Music And Text Association, Eric Smedley

Eric M. Smedley

William Penn’s A Cornfield in July and The River for Medium Voice and Twenty Five Performers, orchestrated in 1991 from the final song of his piano and voice cycle Garland Songs, represents a creative association of music and text. The author of the text, Hamlin Garland, was a Midwestern realist whose works are from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Inspired by this union of music and text, the author of this paper orchestrated the remaining Garland Songs, employing the same spirit of text and music alliance. This document explores the biographies and artistic styles of Penn and ...

Realism And The Ethics Of Risk At The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Kim Solga 2009 The University of Western Ontario

Realism And The Ethics Of Risk At The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Kim Solga

Kim Solga

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival is notoriously risk-averse, creating quality "classical" theatre without rocking any audience worlds. Or is it? This paper re-examines the history of "risk" at Stratford and explores two key productions directed by Peter Hinton at the Festival. I conclude that, perhaps, risk-taking directors and a "conservative" acting company serve the work very well indeed.


Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips

Charlie Sweet

“Triple Play” presents three procedural techniques nicely reduced to related mnemonics for making the most of class time by embedding three different approaches to assessing students’ learning right there in the class that day. The fruits of such exercises doubtless will give faculty who try them important information on what’s working with their students and what is not, but a point the authors don’t emphasize is that the exercises will also compel students to become conscious of where they stand in their own learning as learning rather than as a response to how they felt about the class ...
