Ground-Truthing Excavations At Los Adaes (16na16) May, 2010, George Avery

Faculty Publications

In May 2010, Stephen F. Austin State University—funded by the Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL)—conducted excavations at Los Adaes State Historic Site (16NA16) to ground-truth the results of a geophysical survey of the presidio area of the site conducted by ERDC CERL and the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) in May 2009. The geophysical investigation was a component of a 5-year study funded by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). Los Adaes State Historic Site was that project’s demonstration site. This monograph focuses ...


Barometers Of Gdr Cultural Politics: Contextualizing The Defa Grimm Adaptations, Qinna Shen 2011 Bryn Mawr College

Barometers Of Gdr Cultural Politics: Contextualizing The Defa Grimm Adaptations, Qinna Shen

German Faculty Research and Scholarship

This essay examines adaptations of the Grimms' fairy tales by the East German Film Studio, die Deutsche Film-Aktiengesellschaft (DEFA). After a brief discussion of the condemnation and rehabilitation of fairy tales in the Soviet Union and GDR (German Democratic Republic), it analyzes selected fairy-tale film adaptations against their political, ideological, and cultural-historical background. This investigation shows that the conception of the films, as well as their reception, responded quickly to vacillating liberal and repressive trends and thus functioned as a barometer of cultural politics in the GDR. As children's films, these adaptations illustrate an interesting synthesis of art and ...


England [Medieval Music], Peter M. Lefferts 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

England [Medieval Music], Peter M. Lefferts

Faculty Publications: School of Music

English musical life in the Middle Ages is often treated in standard textbook surveys as peripheral to that of France and Italy. This approach has several causes, but is rooted especially in musicology's preoccupation over the past 150 years of scholarship with medieval France. Noteworthy also in this negligence is the pairing of France and Italy late in the era in the emergence of polyphonic refrain songs as the chief new artefacts of secular high music culture in the 1300s, an attractive trend with no contemporary English-language counterpart. Musicology's paradigmatic narrative of English entrance onto the international stage ...


The Structure And Genesis Of Copland's Quiet City, Stanley V. Kleppinger 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Structure And Genesis Of Copland's Quiet City, Stanley V. Kleppinger

Faculty Publications: School of Music

Aaron Copland’s Quiet City (1940), a one-movement work for trumpet, cor anglais, and strings, derives from incidental music the composer wrote for an unsuccessful and now forgotten Irwin Shaw play. This essay explores in detail the pitch structure of the concert work, suggesting dramatic parallels between the music and Shaw’s play.

The opening of the piece hinges on an anhemitonic pentatonic collection, which becomes the source of significant pitch centres for the whole composition, in that the most prominent pitch classes of each section, when taken together, replicate the collection governing the music’s first and last bars ...


Reconsidering Pitch Centricity, Stanley V. Kleppinger 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Reconsidering Pitch Centricity, Stanley V. Kleppinger

Faculty Publications: School of Music

Analysts commonly describe the musical focus upon a particular pitch class above centricity. But this seemingly simple concept is complicated by a range of factors. can be understood variously as a compositional feature, a perceptual effect arising from or listening strategies, or some complex combination thereof. Second, the relation the theoretical construct of tonality (in any of its myriad conceptions) is often not consistently theorized. Finally, various musical contexts manifest or evoke pitch centricity in seemingly and to differing degrees. This essay examines a range of compositions by Ligeti, Carter, and others to arrive at a more nuanced perspective of ...

Strategies For Defusing The Demandingness Objection, Justin J. Moss 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Strategies For Defusing The Demandingness Objection, Justin J. Moss

Philosophy Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

Bernard Williams’s formulation of the Demandingness Objection holds that living a moral life, as the consequentialist understands it, is incompatible with living a life that is good for human beings. This is because the demands of consequentialist morality threaten to overwhelm the life of the person who cares about being moral, thus leaving no time for their own projects and interests. Several prominent consequentialists have responded to the Demandingness Objection by seeking a more moderate and indirect form of consequentialism that does not require as strong a duty of beneficence as classical utilitarianism. I review and criticize three prominent ...

Living The Martial Way, Blair Schur 2011 Linfield College

Living The Martial Way, Blair Schur

Senior Theses

In this thesis, I will examine what the idea of a warrior entails, looking at its ethical facets, as well as its historical development, particularly in the East, since this is where the values which seek cultivation are best preserved. I conclude that a warrior is a person who seeks knowledge and the betterment of themselves through honorable virtues. Section two looks at what it means to be a warrior, whereas section three focuses on the different philosophies that constitute the mentality of a warrior. This continues to section four, where I examine how to apply the mindset of a ...
