Through A Wheat Field; To A Pond, Ian Mikyska 2015 Guildhall School of Music & Drama

Through A Wheat Field; To A Pond, Ian Mikyska

The Goose

This piece inhabits a space between field recording, performance documentation and musical text, with particular emphasis on the role of disembodied listening and remediated experience as factors that constrict our orientation within and aesthetic response to a sonic environment. The original impetus for this series of pieces, called partitury, was the nascent form of YouTube videos that are accompanied by musical scores, so you can read along as you listen. My interest is in problematizing the relationship between what is heard and what is understood, both emergently and conventionally. The moment of particular interest is the creation of rifts; of ...

Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s, Marcelline Hutton 2015 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s, Marcelline Hutton

Zea E-Books

The stories of Russian educated women, peasants, prisoners, workers, wives, and mothers of the 1920s and 1930s show how work, marriage, family, religion, and even patriotism helped sustain them during harsh times.

The Russian Revolution launched an economic and social upheaval that released peasant women from the control of traditional extended families. It promised urban women equality and created opportunities for employment and higher education. Yet, the revolution did little to eliminate Russian patriarchal culture, which continued to undermine women’s social, sexual, economic, and political conditions. Divorce and abortion became more widespread, but birth control remained limited, and sexual ...


The Unheard New Negro Woman: History Through Literature, Shantell Lee 2015 University of New Orleans

The Unheard New Negro Woman: History Through Literature, Shantell Lee

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

Many of the Harlem Renaissance anthologies and histories of the movement marginalize and omit women writers who played a significant role in it. They neglect to include them because these women worked outside of socially determined domestic roles and wrote texts that portrayed women as main characters rather than as muses for men or supporting characters. The distorted representation of women of the Renaissance will become clearer through the exploration of the following texts: Jessie Fauset’s Plum Bun, Caroline Bond Day’s “Pink Hat,” Dorothy West’s “Mammy,” Angelina Grimke’s Rachel and “Goldie,” and Georgia Douglas Johnson’s ...

Critiquing The Critic: A Case For Journalistic Criticism In The Theatre, Tara Nicole Haas 2015 Brigham Young University - Provo

Critiquing The Critic: A Case For Journalistic Criticism In The Theatre, Tara Nicole Haas

All Theses and Dissertations

This thesis suggests that journalistic theatre criticism is a necessary and vital aspect of the theatre, promoting a healthy theatre community and culture. A healthy theatre community is supported by critics and artists alike, and is one where citizens are excited about the theatre, desiring to participate and engage with it often. It is one where artists and spectators listen, respect, and trust one another, being open to opinions and suggestions that may enhance and improve the theatre community. A healthy theatre community strives to provide theatre that may be multi-faceted in purpose, but allows for opportunities to challenge, uncover ...

Conscious Conversations: An Experiential Study Of Improvisation In Sound And Movement, Maya S. Gonzalez 2015 The College at Brockport

Conscious Conversations: An Experiential Study Of Improvisation In Sound And Movement, Maya S. Gonzalez

Senior Honors Theses

Art is a conscious practice. It is a method of live manifestation and a process of creative and individual expression. We perceive art and its meaning both physically and metaphysically through the vessels of body and mind, bridging connections between the abstract and the explicit. Creative process offers a method through which we may open our minds and channel inspirations so that we can explore and manifest greater meaning than ourselves. Art is the connective tissue of consciousness. Art offers truth beyond what we seem to know, and it intrigues us in ways that pull us deeper into the void ...


Ophelia And The Feminine Construct, Lilly E. Romestant 2015 Oglethorpe University

Ophelia And The Feminine Construct, Lilly E. Romestant

Oglethorpe Journal of Undergraduate Research

In Shakespeare's celebrated tragic masterpiece, Hamlet, one of the most controversial and seminal characters, Ophelia, continues to have a heavy influence on contemporary culture today in some unexpected ways. Her prevalence in mainstream media––including film, literature, drama, and music homages––validates not only her importance now but also reimagines and reinforces her parallel importance at the time of her debut in 1603. Her association with global teenage culture, suicide, and mental illness, puts her in the unique position of being heralded, generation after generation, as an icon of depression in female youth. This can be both positive and ...


Hybrid, Subversive, And Skeptical Performances Of Gender, Power, And Space In The Postcolonial Avant-Garde, Alyson T. Inouye 2015 Seattle Pacific University

Hybrid, Subversive, And Skeptical Performances Of Gender, Power, And Space In The Postcolonial Avant-Garde, Alyson T. Inouye

Honors Projects

In her one-woman play, Iraqi-American playwright and actress Heather Raffo performs the testimonies of nine resilient Iraqi women, emphasizing their diverse experiences of the American occupation and life under the Baathist regime. Near the end of the play, one of the soliloquies breaks down into incoherence: an instance of poetic rupture. There is revolutionary potential latent in this avant-garde technique, and by applying it to her urgent and immediate postcolonial context Raffo simultaneously enacts and demands a response of justice to the injustices attested to throughout. Through the poetic rupture of Layal’s textual/psychological breakdown, Raffo undermines the system ...

War Of The Words, Traer Schon, Renae Mienes, Isaac Biehl

Ethos

If you’ve attended an open mic night in the M-Shop this year, you may have noticed something different. Amidst the singers, comedians and lovably awkward magicians-in-training were…battle rappers? It may seem out of place at Iowa State, but members of the BattleRap club are hoping to change that—one verse at time.


Mourning Wave: Grieving The Loss Of The Natural Environment, Kayla Stewart 2015 University of Washington - Tacoma Campus

Mourning Wave: Grieving The Loss Of The Natural Environment, Kayla Stewart

Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences Master's Projects and Theses

Informed and inspired by the sudden passing of my uncle, Mourning Wave is a physical manifestation of my own experience with grief as it relates to the natural environment. My own personal grief opened the door to experiencing collective grief. Constructed as a wave-shaped altar composed of discarded plastic, Mourning Wave aims to highlight the role of oceanic plastic debris in relation to the damage being done to the environment by humans. The wave is painted black, a traditional color of mourning. Colorful discarded plastic lies within the crest of the wave. This debris was collected several times as a ...

Adolescents and teens are surrounded by a myriad of influences that affect how they see and present themselves.

Further research was performed to identify how that identity can be expressed through theatrical performance.

Where Are Those Good Old Fashioned Values? Family And Satire In Family Guy, Reilly Judd Ryan 2015 Brigham Young University - Provo

Where Are Those Good Old Fashioned Values? Family And Satire In Family Guy, Reilly Judd Ryan

All Theses and Dissertations

This paper explores the presentation of family in the controversial FOX Network television program Family Guy. Polarizing to audiences, the Griffin family of Family Guy is at once considered sophomoric and offensive to some and smart and satiric to others. Though neither judgment of the show is necessarily mutually exclusive, the intention of this study is to reconcile those disparate viewpoints in order to measure the show's purposefulness. After all, if Family Guy succeeds in its satire, it is full of social purpose, offensiveness notwithstanding. This thesis focuses on arguably the main point of contention in Family Guy: the ...
