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 ...

Sophie's Low Blood Sugar, Kelsey Willardson Aug 2018

Sophie's Low Blood Sugar, Kelsey Willardson

Synthesis: A Digital Journal of Student Science Communication

Having been a type 1 diabetic nearly my entire life, I was inspired to write and illustrate a children’s book for diabetics age six and under called ‘Sophie’s Low Blood Sugar’. This age group is seeing the largest rise in type 1 diagnoses but most of the related education materials are focused on parents. My goal is to engage type 1 diabetic children in their own diabetes care, help them identify tools they can use to manage their diabetes, as well as provide them a protagonist with whom they can relate.


Medicine And Humanity, Mason Lamarche Aug 2018

Medicine And Humanity, Mason Lamarche

Synthesis: A Digital Journal of Student Science Communication

Science is becoming increasingly more complicated as our understanding of the world increases. While the practice of science continues to yield new technology and information, its findings are not the only thing that matters. Science struggles to explain why certain human experiences and connections are powerful, but the value of their occurrence cannot be dismissed. Sometimes, it takes a challenging personal situation to pull those who fixate on the answers science provides back to the world we share, back to the humanity which is central to our being.


Lilliputian Arctic Deviation, Jonah Lloyd Elrod Aug 2018

Lilliputian Arctic Deviation, Jonah Lloyd Elrod

Theses and Dissertations

Lilliputian Arctic Deviation is a work for small orchestra inspired by average snow and ice extent in the Northern Hemisphere over four decades. Something so large as forty years of snow and ice coverage can be interpreted as what Timothy Morton calls a hyperobject, an entity so vast in space and time that we as human beings cannot experience it within our limited senses and lifespans. For example, we can’t experience 150 years of global warming directly, but we can conceptualize it as an idea, or observe it as a graph. Like a graph, Lilliputian Arctic Deviation is an ...


Requiem For A Drink, Lindsay Godin Aug 2018

Requiem For A Drink, Lindsay Godin

Theses and Dissertations

In today’s college culture, more universities in the United States are confronted with the escalating societal problem of alcohol abuse. Some say college-aged alcohol consumption is a rite of passage, or a way of enjoying college life. Others say such behavior is a start of a life-long tragedy of addiction and destructiveness. The photographs in Requiem for A Drink were taken at the University of Iowa which capture the excessive profanity of disoriented intoxication, inhibition, and disregard for the environment. The stark scenes of the aftermath ultimately signify the morning after, a sunrise filled with nausea, hangovers, and regret ...


A Performance Guide For Trombone Quartet: An Application Of Pedagogical Concepts And Techniques For Developing Ensembles, Robert Carlisle Parker Aug 2018

A Performance Guide For Trombone Quartet: An Application Of Pedagogical Concepts And Techniques For Developing Ensembles, Robert Carlisle Parker

Theses and Dissertations

Despite the prominence of trombone quartets for student trombonists, there is a lack of pedagogical and performance technique literature related to the genre. Consequently, this project seeks to provide a much-needed resource that developing ensembles and instructors can use to hone their craft and enjoy a more productive quartet experience. This guide for trombone quartets will provide ensembles with fundamental knowledge concerning important aspects of trombone quartet performance such as rehearsal technique, collaboration, logistics, repertoire, and specific musical elements. This essay draws upon an analysis of chamber music literature and resources, interviews with prominent professionals, and the personal experience of ...


God And The Grounding Of Morality, David James Redmond Aug 2018

God And The Grounding Of Morality, David James Redmond

Theses and Dissertations

I argue that, if God exists, moral facts ontologically depend on him. After distinguishing a variety of ways in which moral facts might ontologically depend on God, I focus my attention on the most prominent and most well-developed account of the relationship between God and morality viz., the account developed by Robert Adams in his Finite and Infinite Goods. Adams’ account consists of two parts—an account of deontic moral properties and an account of axiological moral properties. Adams’ account of deontic moral properties is a version of divine command theory according to which the property of being morally right ...
