Place-Names In Shakespeare's Grand Design For The Henry Vi Plays, Dorothy E. Litt 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Place-Names In Shakespeare's Grand Design For The Henry Vi Plays, Dorothy E. Litt

Literary Onomastics Studies

The Henry VI plays of Shakespeare are among his earliest and first of his English history cycle. In them occur a profusion of topographical references which add an imaginative geographical dimension to the panorama of English history: the power struggle between the contending factions of Lancaster and York, the battles with France in the Hundred Years' War, and the internal upheaval of the Cade revolt.

Poly-Anthroponomical Technique In Buero Vallejo's Drama Las Meninas, Grace Alvarez-Altman

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, the introductory paragraph is included here.

Twenty-five years after the Civil War (1936-1939), known as the "Little World War" in Spain, the United States brought Antonio Buero Vallejo to visit American colleges and universities as part of its cultural exchange program. He has been a special guest at the Modern Language Association meetings numerous times. His play Las Meninas, acclaimed to be his masterpiece out of his over 35 classical plays, is also the name of the masterpiece painting by the famous Vehizquez, who revolutionized art by introducing the technique of painting the atmosphere, light ...

Tom Stoppard And Ferenc Molnar: A Comparison Of Onomastics, Elizabeth M. Rajec

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, the introductory paragraph is included here.

Tom Stoppard's hilarious play Rough Crossing was premiered in London in 1984. It had been freely adapted from Ferenc Molnar's classic farce Jatek a kastelyban (literally 'Play at the Castle'). The original play was first produced in Budapest in 1925. Most likely Stoppard's adaptation is based on P. G. Wodehouse's English translation known as The Play's the Thing which premiered in 1926 at the Henry Miller Theatre in New York.


Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, here is the introductory paragraph of the article.

During the nearly forty-year regime of Generalissimo Francisco Franco, Spain's literary production entered a period of semi-dormancy occasioned by severe limitations of censorship and repression of creative energies, particularly in the area of the theater.1 While theaters, especially in Madrid, were economically solvent and successful, the dramatic offerings presented onstage in the main afforded audiences inoffensive fare of bourgeois superficiality with scant, or virtually no probing of the complex realities of post-Civil War Spain.2 Writers who remained in Spain following the devastation were constrained ...


Nominal Jests In Shakespeare's Plays, Dorothy E. Litt 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Nominal Jests In Shakespeare's Plays, Dorothy E. Litt

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, this is the first paragraph of the article.

Nominal jests were very popular among the literati of the English Renaissance. The plays and poems of the period are studded with name-play, and Shakespeare, with his lively mind, excelled at the game. 1 Much has been written of his jests on his own name in the Sonnets 2 and on his name usage in the plays. 3 Although much name-play may at times seem trivial or obvious, when it appears in a consistent pattern linked to the play's function we may gain insight into Shakespeare ...


Name-Calling As Power Play In Shakespeare's 1 Henry Iv, Frederick M. Burelbach 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Name-Calling As Power Play In Shakespeare's 1 Henry Iv, Frederick M. Burelbach

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu on an abstract, here are a few sentences from an early paragraph of the article.

The main premise of this paper is that name-calling- as when youngsters call each other Fatty, Skinny, or Sissy-is a form of authorship as well as an instrument used in maintaining social norms. The name-caller is creating a specific role for the victim by use of a name with particular denotations, connotations, and assumed social values. By so doing, the name-caller is defining an appropriate scope of action or behavior, with expected patterns of response to external events- a plot, if you will- ...

The Psychology Of Competitive Dance: A Study Of The Motivations For Adolescent Involvement, Samantha Sobash 2014 Chapman University

The Psychology Of Competitive Dance: A Study Of The Motivations For Adolescent Involvement, Samantha Sobash

e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work

"Competition is a social process that is so pervasive in Western civilization that no one can escape it" (Robson 2004). Dance training for most people begins at an early age, and thus the art form akin to sports introduces youth to competition. The booming dance competition industry has only enhanced the competitive aspect of the art form. Currently there are upwards of 200 local, regional, and national competitions held annually with participants as young as four years old. Is competition innate or are we introducing it as part of youth development in the Western world? Youth are increasingly pushed by ...


Sleep Patterns In Collegiate Dancers, Beth Nicks, Jacque Price 2014 Chapman University

Sleep Patterns In Collegiate Dancers, Beth Nicks, Jacque Price

e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work

As college dance majors, the investigators have witnessed firsthand the effects that sleep and the lack thereof can have on the performance quality of University level dancing. It has been shown that lack of sleep can compromise nearly every physiological process such as memory, coordination, metabolism, and new learning (Wozny 2008). Studies on disruptions of the human circadian rhythms have shown that athletes involved in endeavors where sleep is restricted or totally deprived have severe consequences on behavior and performance. (Edwards 2007). However, the environment of college dance programs is different than athletics due to there being no off season ...

The Art Of Polyfoam Puppetry, Rafeeq I. Roberts, Terry Pieritz, Russell Borski

Undergraduate Research Posters 2014

The construction of polyfoam puppets for theatrical productions is a highly specialized art form and requires a process that is often learned via mentorships and apprenticeships. Limited learning materials and resources presently exist or are publicly available on the techniques for producing these complex and genre specific puppets. This project investigated and visually documented the creative process and craftsmanship in the creation of polyfoam puppets. Working collaboratively with an undergraduate student of film and digital media, theatre Faculty Designers created an instructional video presentation of the step by step stages of polyfoam puppetry construction. The resulting video documents the creative ...


Dark Awakening: Transmedia And Narrative Transportation, Rafeeq Roberts, Kimberly Neuendorf 2014 Cleveland State University

Dark Awakening: Transmedia And Narrative Transportation, Rafeeq Roberts, Kimberly Neuendorf

Undergraduate Research Posters 2014

Media convergence has led content creators to produce narratives that stretch across platforms, known as Transmedia. A Transmedia narrative titled Dark Awakening was created using three different platforms: A short film, an interactive short story, and a text based role playing game. All of these share overlapping themes, characters, and settings. Each narrative platform was designed to be taken and understood on its own, or viewed in conjunction with the others. A study of audience response to the Transmedia experience of Dark Awakening has been planned. The conditions for the study include the order in which the media are consumed ...
