Is Episodic Future Thinking Important For Instrumental Activities Of Daily Living In Neurological Patients?, Amanda M. Brunette Aug 2018

Is Episodic Future Thinking Important For Instrumental Activities Of Daily Living In Neurological Patients?, Amanda M. Brunette

Theses and Dissertations

Episodic future thinking is defined as the ability to mentally project oneself into the future into a specific time and place. Episodic future thinking has been explored extensively in neuroscience. However, it has not been determined whether the measurement of episodic future thinking might be valuable in a clinical neuropsychological setting. The current study examined the relationship between episodic future thinking and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), which is a domain of adaptive functioning frequently assessed by neuropsychologists to examine independent living potential including the ability to handle finances, prepare food, complete household duties, and manage medications. A secondary ...

The Age Of Innocence, Nina Morrison May 2018

The Age Of Innocence, Nina Morrison

Theses and Dissertations

My work as a queer, feminist playwright is centered around reimagining the presentation of women and other marginalized people on stage. I write highly theatrical comedies meant to highlight and satirize aspects of presentation and representation related to gender, race and power. This play is titled The Age of Innocence, like the Edith Wharton novel which I have never read. I learned from the internet that Wharton wrote the novel in 1920 when she was 50 years old and thinking about her childhood days in New York City in the 1870’s long before the horrors of WWI. The novel ...


Colorism In The Music Industry And The Women It Privileges, Aja Witt Jan 2018

Colorism In The Music Industry And The Women It Privileges, Aja Witt

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

Colorism research over the American music industry has largely focused on the lyrics and music videos of male rappers and singers. This purposefully ignores the work of women, removing female artists of any complacency or responsibility within the perpetuation of the skin tone hierarchy of which lighter skinned female artists regularly benefit. Looking at the careers and music videos for prominent Black female artists, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj, who have been largely successful within the contemporary industry, I find instances of colorism by the women themselves and the industry men who sign them. Examining the “Formation”, “Man Down”, and ...

Am I Not A Woman And A Sister And An Immigrant?: Approaching Intimate Partner Violence In Black Immigrant Communities Within An Intersectional Framework, Azzah Nasraddin Jan 2017

Am I Not A Woman And A Sister And An Immigrant?: Approaching Intimate Partner Violence In Black Immigrant Communities Within An Intersectional Framework, Azzah Nasraddin

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This Honors thesis presents a review of the literature on the magnitude and impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) in Black immigrant communities in the U.S. I argue that IPV must be approached within an intersectional framework in order to account for the ways in which multidimensional identities and experiences occur in conjunction with abuse. The intersectional identities of Black Immigrant Women (BIW); as Black, foreign, and woman, render them essentially invisible in U.S. immigration discourse and especially vulnerable to IPV due to multifaceted layers of oppression as well as specific cultural and religious implications. This thesis first ...

Shapes And Noise: Does Border Geometry And Capital Location Affect The Prevalence Of Insurgency In A State?, Ryan B. Hall Jan 2016

Shapes And Noise: Does Border Geometry And Capital Location Affect The Prevalence Of Insurgency In A State?, Ryan B. Hall

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

The destruction brought by World War II fashioned an intense fear of any instability in the international system. The primary result of this fear is the institution of the United Nations, which, in turn, has been compelled to undertake a number of state building and peace keeping operations. While the international community has seen success in these operations, many states continue to fail – for these states all variables should be on the table. Among the most under-explored variables in state failure is state geometry; for years, a select few political scientists have attempted to explore the relationship between the two ...


The Problematic Epic Of Finland: An Exploration Of Tricky Heroes, Silent Women, And Absent Fathers In The Kalevala, Carolyn S. Brugman Jan 2016

The Problematic Epic Of Finland: An Exploration Of Tricky Heroes, Silent Women, And Absent Fathers In The Kalevala, Carolyn S. Brugman

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis explores the complex and arguably under-examined written oral narrative, Elias Lönnrot’s the Kalevala. It is the national epic of Finland, a compiled work of both medieval oral and 19th-century written tradition. This thesis examines how the Kalevala works as a national epic and what makes it so distinct, including exploration of the problematic hero, the role of women, and familial norms within the text. The Kalevala, as it survives, is a 19th-century written work based on the traditional folk songs of Finland and surrounding Karelian areas. Furthermore, through examining issues of oral transmission ...

Broaching The Subject: The Geometry Of Anglo-Saxon Composite Brooches, Anna Luella Isbell May 2015

Broaching The Subject: The Geometry Of Anglo-Saxon Composite Brooches, Anna Luella Isbell

Theses and Dissertations

The various surviving disc and composite brooches provide proof of the skill and craftsmanship of Anglo-Saxon metalsmiths. Surprisingly, no one has conducted a full geometrical analysis of these brooches to discover the design process preceding the casting and decoration. This thesis endeavors to rectify this through a geometrical investigation of the sophisticated geometrical planning principles used by Anglo-Saxon craftsmen in the creation of these elaborate brooches. Through the use of simple geometrical constructions, smiths were able to create works of great beauty and sophistication. Closer inspection reveals that Anglo-Saxon smiths produced all the composite disc brooches in this study using ...
