Teaching Book History Through Card Games: Codex Conquest And Mark, Amy H. Chen Jan 2019

Teaching Book History Through Card Games: Codex Conquest And Mark, Amy H. Chen

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

Students learn more when they play—while the value of play often is emphasized only for those early in their education, play has a role in higher education as well. To teach book history across time and space, I developed two card games: Codex Conquest and Mark. Codex Conquest allows students to recognize the most important books of Western civilization by their nation, century, genre, and current monetary value. Along the way, students learn European history and the scenarios that influence the shape of institutional collections. Mark introduces students to the hallmarks of early modern visual culture by allowing them ...


Playing Around With Book History: Codex Conquest And Mark, Amy H. Chen Jan 2019

Playing Around With Book History: Codex Conquest And Mark, Amy H. Chen

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

While the value of play often is emphasized only for children, play has a role in higher education as well. Play encourages students to confront new information with curiosity rather than fear and with a flexible rather than fixed mindset. As book history is a complex field—curators, librarians, archivists, booksellers, auctioneers, collectors, artisans, conservationists, and a whole host of other professionals are just as involved in its work and study as students and scholars—play is a wonderful way to address this overwhelm because it generates a positive state of flow. In particular, specially-designed games help students begin to ...

ABANDONED MONUMENTS

School of Art and Art History

Everywhere around the world, there are traces of past civilizations which have been taken over or met their demise. The Marcus Aurelius bronze Roman statue and the bronze Egyptian Gayer Anderson Cat are some prominent examples. In the future, our society could also come to an end. The big question is: What will we leave behind? How will our cultural artifacts be found and what will they say about us? For this honors project, I investigated many ways a statue from my hometown could deteriorate and ...


Honor And Shame In The Sagas Of The Icelanders: Women's Struggle For Influence, Sarah A. Lauer Jan 2019

Honor And Shame In The Sagas Of The Icelanders: Women's Struggle For Influence, Sarah A. Lauer

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis explores the agency of women in Medieval Iceland through the examination of the Icelandic sagas. The Icelandic sagas are one of the most impressive bodies of literature to emerge from Medieval Europe. The sagas offer a trove of social information and a look into the society of Medieval Iceland. These narratives tell the story of the people of Iceland during the first 160 years of settlement, beginning in AD 870. While their focus is on the struggles of men, the sagas do not ignore women. In Medieval Iceland, women had no judiciary standing and relied on men for ...


More Than Cornfields, Kate Edwards Jan 2019

More Than Cornfields, Kate Edwards

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

When I started this project, I knew I wanted to use images of nature as my subject matter. Shortly after I made this decision, I realized that when people talk about all of the beautiful natural places one can go visit, rarely will you hear anywhere in Iowa on that list. We are often seen as little more than a flyover state: nothing to see here. As part of my work, I wanted to show the variety of interesting and unique landscapes that can be found in my home state, by using photographic silkscreen printing as well as foil printing ...


To Kill A Stereotype: An Examination Of Canonical Literature And Racial Representation In The Classroom, Tiphany Phan Jan 2019

To Kill A Stereotype: An Examination Of Canonical Literature And Racial Representation In The Classroom, Tiphany Phan

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This project examines racial representation in canonical texts frequently taught in the secondary English Language Arts classroom. Every year, the population of students in the American public school system becomes increasingly more racially diverse while the demographics of the teaching population and the literature within classrooms remain the same. As the student population continues to change, what type of literature and curriculum must educators teach in order to represent students’ diverse identities and encourage respect and responsiveness towards other cultures?

As an Asian-American pre-service teacher, I first discuss the current state of American public school education in this project and ...

Socially Engaged Art At The Reimagined 21st Century Museum: An Emerging Conceptual Framework, Allison Rowe Nov 2018

Socially Engaged Art At The Reimagined 21st Century Museum: An Emerging Conceptual Framework, Allison Rowe

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

Socially engaged art is a broad term used to describe contemporary visual art practices that are concerned with the creation of experiences and, as such, often involve participation as an integral component of a work. Art galleries and museums across the United States have embraced socially engaged art with increasing frequency over the past twenty-five-years, mirroring its uptake by artists throughout the country. Despite its prevalence, little scholarship has addressed why art institutions have embraced socially engaged art, nor what benefits they gain from supporting it. In this paper, I attend to this absence with an emergent conceptual framework that ...

The Shariah Scare Industry And The Clash Of Temporalities, Steven Fink Sep 2018

The Shariah Scare Industry And The Clash Of Temporalities, Steven Fink

Mathal

Islamophobic alarms over shariah have resounded in the United States during the second decade of the twenty-first century. These alarms perpetuate the notion of a clash of civilizations, pitting Islam versus the West. Instead of discussing the clash of civilizations thesis, however, this article proposes that a clash of temporalities has been constructed by a “shariah scare industry.” Focusing on the Center for Security Policy and Nonie Darwish, this article discloses the shariah scare argument that Muslims and non-Muslims experience time in two contrasting manners, what I call frozen past time and ominous future time.


Stem-O-Sphere: Creating An Immersive Blogging Experience, Steven Huang Sep 2018

Stem-O-Sphere: Creating An Immersive Blogging Experience, Steven Huang

Synthesis: A Digital Journal of Student Science Communication

The goal of this project was to provide individuals an immersive experience of what research looks like in a University laboratory setting. Blogs are an inexpensive way to convey an individual’s thoughts and experiences to the public. With the traditional blog, most experiences are presented in written form. However, some experiences can have bigger impacts if they can be seen rather than read. I created a more in-depth and detailed blogging experience for my viewers through virtual reality and a video log (vlog). I documented my process for producing the virtual reality videos and vlog and two of my ...


The Truth About Red Wine, Cassandra Poulos Sep 2018

The Truth About Red Wine, Cassandra Poulos

Synthesis: A Digital Journal of Student Science Communication

My dual passions for science and writing co-mingled as I managed and wrote for Stemosphere (stem-o-sphere.org), a science communication blog. I wanted to break down science publications into easy-to-understand pieces that are accurate but easily digested. In this piece, originally written for Stemosphere, I broke down the complicated relationship between researchers, journalists, and the public consumer in the consumption of science in the media. Quite often, publications can be disconnected from their public portrayals, and I attempt to ascertain where these inconsistencies stem from. While it may be easy to place blame with the content creators, each of us ...
