The Cosmological Significance Of Animal Generation, Devin Henry Dec 2104

The Cosmological Significance Of Animal Generation, Devin Henry

Devin Henry

This paper explores the relation between Aristotle’s mature theory of animal generation and his broader cosmology.


All Things To All People, Part One, Peter J. Aschenbrenner Dec 2104

All Things To All People, Part One, Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Our Constitutional Logic has identified the fundamental predicate of Government I, which operated, more or less, under Constitution I, the Constutiton of the year One, as a disposable government. See The Standard Model at War, 17 OCL 350. if government asserts, affirmatively, that it is disposable, isn’t it also asserting that it can replicate its systems (= structures political society) at will? OCL builds on its assertion of political society as a three-goaled contrivance. See Why Do Political Societies Exist? 2 OCL 883. Isn’t such a government asserting the primacy of the needs of civil society? By offering to ...


How Do We Know When Political Societies Change?, Peter Aschenbrenner Jan 2104

How Do We Know When Political Societies Change?, Peter Aschenbrenner

Peter J. Aschenbrenner

Predicates, features, attributes and properties of a system are liable to change. How does the change get marked down? For this purpose what facet of a system should command our attention? Any system worth the name, Our Constitutional Logic argues, is aware of its own standing in civil society. OCL considers the issues raised.


Rape Culture.Docx, Lynell Hodge Nov 2019

Rape Culture.Docx, Lynell Hodge

Lynell Hodge, EdD

Rape culture is a highly contested topic often framed by sexual assault as a central focus. As result, when feminists and social justice activists attempt to have a more expansive conversation to include coercive relationships or street harassment it isn’t always received well. In some cases the conversation is labeled as divisive. Having a rape culture discussion can be already contentious, there is also a subgroup of women who lean anti-rape culture rhetoric. Rape culture requires an understanding of the normalization of violence due to the pervasiveness of sexism. As a result, exploring why women deny rape culture’s ...


The Regime Of Sex Trafficking Of Women In The United States, Julia Wilson Jun 2019

The Regime Of Sex Trafficking Of Women In The United States, Julia Wilson

Julia Wilson

Sex trafficking is a vicious crime and has been denoted as a form of modern-day slavery, accumulating nearly 21 million victims worldwide. Women and girls make up 95% of victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation, which reflects the dominance of patriarchy operating in the U.S. and across the globe. When it comes to the sex trafficking of women, it is often seen as a problem that happens elsewhere, never close to us. This hegemonic narrative that exoticizes sex trafficking contributes to keeping the problem in the dark. Yet an estimated 200,000 people are forced into the sex trade ...


Administration, Emotional Labor, And Gendered Discourses Of Power: A Feminist Chair’S Mission To Make Service Matter, Michelle Payne May 2019

Administration, Emotional Labor, And Gendered Discourses Of Power: A Feminist Chair’S Mission To Make Service Matter, Michelle Payne

Michelle Payne

Michelle Masse’ and Katie Hogan’s edited collection, Over Ten Million Served (2010), argues that “complaining about service is not the same as critically analyzing service as a significant dimension of academic labor” (15). Nor, as Phillips and Heinert argue, is the admonition to “just say no” an ethical solution to the gendered inequity of academic labor. In this essay, I not only illustrate the consequences of saying yes to service and analyze its significance, but I illustrate the ways that service positioned me to advocate for change at my own institution. More specifically, I focus on the unique administrative ...


Contradictions Regarding Teaching And Writing (Or Writing To Learn) In The Disciplines: What We Have Learned In The Usa, David R. Russell May 2019

Contradictions Regarding Teaching And Writing (Or Writing To Learn) In The Disciplines: What We Have Learned In The Usa, David R. Russell

David Russell

This article describes a tradition of Anglophone North American higher education (HE) research concerning the role of writing in learning and development. The research tradition is associated with a forty-year-old education reform movement called Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) or Writing in the Disciplines (WID). The movement encourages teachers in different disciplines to become interested in their students’ writing and to improve their writing and their disciplinary education (formation) through writing. The research on WAC/WID uses methods familiar in educational research (and to a lesser extent applied linguistics) to understand the roles writing plays in disciplinary work and disciplinary ...


Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms May 2019

Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms

David Russell

What is the relationship between medium and genre in learning and development? North American genre theory suggests following Miller (1984, 1994) that genre is social action. Genres evoke expectations, direct attention, guide action and suggest ‘what motives we may have.’ Yet the relationship between media and genres, as Miller suggested at SIGET IV (1997), is complex. The blog, for example, quickly evolved from being one genre to many genres and, today, might be said to be a medium more than a genre. Bazerman at SIGET IV (2007) argued, following Vygotsky (1997), that genres −particularly written genres− ‘provide highly differentiated, scaffolded ...


Attending To Phenomenology: Rethinking Cognition And Reflection In North American Writing Studies, Dylan B. Dryer, David R. Russell May 2019

Attending To Phenomenology: Rethinking Cognition And Reflection In North American Writing Studies, Dylan B. Dryer, David R. Russell

David Russell

As detailed elsewhere in this collection (esp. Bazerman; Carillo; Talbot), when North American Writing Studies of higher education and workplaces (henceforth, NAWS) turned to European continental philosophies, it turned away from information-processing (IP) cognitive theories. Those theories were early casualties of this “social-turn” (e.g., Bartholomae, 1985; Bizzell, 1982; Brand, 1987); today, NAWS seems somewhat squeamish about the fact that the brain is an organ with a broadly generalizable structure, predictable development, capacity constraints, operating costs, and so on. Yet cognitive research is a dynamic and thriving field that does not much resemble the after-image that persists in NAWS. Some ...

The Kind-Ness Of Genre: An Activity Theory Analysis Of High School Teachers' Perception Of Genre In Portfolio Assessment Across The Curriculum, David R. Russell May 2019

The Kind-Ness Of Genre: An Activity Theory Analysis Of High School Teachers' Perception Of Genre In Portfolio Assessment Across The Curriculum, David R. Russell

David Russell

At the 1998 Genre conference, Peter Medway asked, "Is genre such a capacious concept that it is too fuzzy to do much analytical work?" In this chapter I look at a group of high school teachers from different disciplines who must, as part of the work of assessing student portfolios of writing across the curriculum, discuss genre, work with it, to decide which student texts meet the statewide criteria for a "good" text. In a broader sense, they must work with genre to decide what genres they will assign and teaching their (discipline specific) classes to help students meet the ...


Analyzing Gm Food Risk Arguments Through An Online, Multi-Media Case Study, Tosh Tachino, David R. Russell May 2019

Analyzing Gm Food Risk Arguments Through An Online, Multi-Media Case Study, Tosh Tachino, David R. Russell

David Russell

We constructed an online, multi-media simulation of an environmental debate, and analyzed the uses of scientific information from it that 41 college students included in arguments about the issue. Analysis of the ways students appropriate information to reason about science suggests they do so much as scientists do in public policy debates.


The Fractal Geometry Of Life, Ling Zhang, Su Kyoung An May 2019

The Fractal Geometry Of Life, Ling Zhang, Su Kyoung An

Ling Zhang

The goal of this design project was to bridge the intentions of mathematical theory and wearable art design by experimenting with the mergence of fractal art theory and the aesthetic of the artwork of Piet Mondrian to create an interesting, complex, and aesthetically pleasing visual form of wearable art. The garment patterns were created using Lectra Modaris and exported into DXF format for motif arrangement in Adobe Illustrator. The designers utilized laser cutting technology to represent the effects of the fractal geometric art and the concept from Mondrian’s painting. The primary colors inspired by the Mondrian’s painting were ...


Synthesis Of Handcrafts And Digital Printing: Creative Sustainable Apparel Design, Ling Zhang, Eulanda A. Sanders May 2019

Synthesis Of Handcrafts And Digital Printing: Creative Sustainable Apparel Design, Ling Zhang, Eulanda A. Sanders

Ling Zhang

Apparel manufacturing processes are one of the most prevalent sources of environmental problems at almost every stage (Gam & Banning, 2011). Some apparel designers/manufacturers are striving to incorporate sustainable and socially responsible processes to create non-toxic, healthy, biodegradable textiles and apparel products. This apparel design project combined handcraft techniques and digital printing to create an eco-friendly line entitled Life of Earth. The design process model used was created by LaBat and Sokoloskwi (1999) including: (a) problem definition and research, (b) creative exploration, and (c) implementation; and the designer included an evaluation step.

The Chinese Wisteria, Ling Zhang

Ling Zhang

The purposes of this design were to: (1) fuse the techniques of Chinese painting and art philosophy with Western garment silhouettes; (2) experiment with nuno felting technique as a dart replacement technique to achieve “zero waste” in the garment, which is tenant of sustainable design; and (3) apply a variety of textile surface design and handcraft techniques to silk fabrics throughout the garment, such as heat/wet felting, silk painting, hand beading, and bead embroidery. The silk chiffon and 8mm silk organza were nuno felted to achieve the goals of “zero waste” and “biodegradable”. This design demonstrates ...

Nature's Dna, Ling Zhang, Li Jiang May 2019

Nature's Dna, Ling Zhang, Li Jiang

Ling Zhang

Abstract

The goal of this design was to utilize apparel design as a communication tool to represent the relationship between fashion, the human body, and natural scenery. The question we asked was how we can aesthetically appreciate the natural environment and how can we express the conceptual and material values of the relationship between fashion and natural scenery through the application of digital textile printing, digital pattern making, and textile designs. The designers explored methods for creating textile prints based on photographs of the Upper Antelope Valley from the first author’s own photo collection and utilized the structures of ...


Examination Of Two Decades In Used Clothing Trade: The Case Of The United States And Selected Developed Economies, Youngji Lee, Ling Zhang, Elena E. Karpova May 2019

Examination Of Two Decades In Used Clothing Trade: The Case Of The United States And Selected Developed Economies, Youngji Lee, Ling Zhang, Elena E. Karpova

Ling Zhang

This research examined two decades of the U.S. used clothing exports to the world. All countries (209) were classified into four groups based on the level of economic development. Between 1996 and 2012, U.S. used clothing exports shifted away from low-income economies to high-income economies. For the first time, our research demonstrated that the majority of used clothing discarded by American consumers is exported to high-income economies instead of poorest nations of the world. Next, used clothing exports and imports by volume and value in seven high-income countries were analyzed. The high-income countries not only exported but also ...


Eternal Perspective: Synthesis Of Faith And Digital Printing In Creative Apparel Design, Augusta Overy, Ling Zhang May 2019

Eternal Perspective: Synthesis Of Faith And Digital Printing In Creative Apparel Design, Augusta Overy, Ling Zhang

Ling Zhang

This apparel design collection combines origami techniques and digital printing to create an inspiring and faith-filled line entitled Eternal Perspective. The line was inspired by the designer's faith and the importance of always maintaining an eternal perspective. Flat patterning techniques were used to create origami garments which fold into a vortex, spiral, and diagonal stair steps in the completed garments. Two different digital prints were inspired by eternal ideas represented by images which were modified in Adobe Photoshop. The main print motif used is an altered image of stained glass windows on the San Diego LDS temple. A sunflower ...


From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang, Brent Holland, Eulanda Sanders May 2019

From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang, Brent Holland, Eulanda Sanders

Ling Zhang

Applying design process model as the framework during the creative process facilitates documenting the process in a method easy to interpret and replicate for other wearable artists or designers. Thus, the purpose of this research were to: (a) fuse the techniques of Chinese painting and art philosophy with contemporary garment silhouettes to create three lines of wearable art that are inspired by the three most prominent motifs found in Dafang Zhang’s (the researcher/designer’s father) Xie Yi painting, (b) propose a model outlining a design system for creating wearable art useful to other designers and artists based on ...


From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang May 2019

From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang

Ling Zhang

Wearable art is “art composed of materials structured so they can be worn on the body and that exhibit visually exciting design elements and principles” (Bryant & Hoffman, 1994, P.86). It is a unique (Becker, 1987) and visible symbol that not only depicts the mood of a designer, but also communicates her/his belief, life style, culture, knowledge, and aesthetic tastes to the world. The goals of creating this wearable art collection were to: (a) incorporate traditional Chinese Xie Yi painting themes, ideals or motifs into modern fashion designs with the silhouettes of Western clothing through the use of a ...

Ptolemaic Elephants In Iii Maccabees And The Social Stratification Of The Kingdom Of Kush, Leslie Sam May 2019

Ptolemaic Elephants In Iii Maccabees And The Social Stratification Of The Kingdom Of Kush, Leslie Sam

Leslie Sam

Trade helped to catapult early societies from hunter gatherers – living in small communities of friends and family – to living in sprawling urban environments of ideas and exchange. Socialization and the exchange of ideas – and war—molded our modern times into what it is now. Ancient Nubia found itself in a conundrum that would test their resolve. Ptolemaic-ran Egypt was at their border, forcing themselves in as conquerors, unapologetic towards the millennia old culture that contributed much to their society. With a truce made between the Greeks and Meroe, trade was inevitably was enacted between the two power houses, helping to ...

The True University: Yale's Library From 1843 To 1931, Elizabeth D. James May 2019

The True University: Yale's Library From 1843 To 1931, Elizabeth D. James

Elizabeth D. James

By the summer of 1930, Sterling Memorial Library was nearing completion, lacking only the university’s 1.6 million books. At 6:00 AM on July 7, with a ceremonial parade of the library’s earliest accessions, the two-month project of moving the books commenced. Leading the trail of librarians was the head librarian, Andrew Keogh, and the head of the serials cataloguing department, Grace Pierpont Fuller. Fuller was the descendant of James Pierpont, one of the principal founders of Yale, and was carrying the Latin Bible given by her ancestor during the fabled 1701 donation of books that signaled ...
