Making The Invisible, Visible: The Body And The Nation In Laura Ruiz Montes’ A Ciegas, Yvette Fuentes Oct 2013

Making The Invisible, Visible: The Body And The Nation In Laura Ruiz Montes’ A Ciegas, Yvette Fuentes

Quadrivium: A Journal of Multidisciplinary Scholarship

This study analyzes A Ciegas, a one-act playby the Cuban writer Laura Ruiz Montes (Matanzas, 1966). In this work, Ruiz Montes relies upon both the erotic (specifically the female body) and the supernatural, to underscore the complex nature of gender and sexuality within Cuba’s national history. In A Ciegas, the female body and female sexuality appear in the shadows, “invisible” within the nation. Ruiz Montes juxtaposes present and past, realism and the supernatural, and heterosexual and homosexual desire in order to elucidate the various forms of difference that remain outside official national discourses.

Feast Your Eyes On This—Markets In Ponta Delgada, Azores, And Granada And Barcelona, Spain: A Photographic Essay, Edwin Stieve

Quadrivium: A Journal of Multidisciplinary Scholarship

Before Publix, Winn Dixie and other chain supermarkets emerged in the 20th Century, there were markets on open, cobblestone streets somewhere near the center of many small towns throughout America. But for contemporary Americans, the open-air market has become more remote and might now be a small area in a park or public lot where weekend farmers’ markets and flea markets offer a few bins of organic fruits and vegetables and homemade or handmade goods. While the tradition has disappeared from many U.S. cities, permanent, open-air markets still thrive in Africa, Asia, and Europe where vendors set up carts ...

Exploring Life And Death At The Cellular Level: An Examination Of How Our Cells Can Live Without Us, Emily F. Schmitt Lavin

Quadrivium: A Journal of Multidisciplinary Scholarship

During the academic year (2012–2013) students and faculty in the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences focused on the annual theme of “Life and Death.” To this end, we have been focusing all aspects of academic growth around this theme.

America’S Idol? How The Contestant Most Voted For Doesn’T Always Win, Jason Gershman Apr 2012

America’S Idol? How The Contestant Most Voted For Doesn’T Always Win, Jason Gershman

Quadrivium: A Journal of Multidisciplinary Scholarship

The reality television show American Idol has some biases which display themselves in data charts and curves of contestants’ telephone voting patterns. Some of the biases examined include issues of geography and performance order. This paper shows that the format of the show leads to biases in favor of contestants who are from, and have large fan bases in, certain parts of the country. Another major flaw is a bias in favor of contestants who sing later in the show. I show that the order the contestants sing in is not random chance but instead carefully chosen by the producers ...
