Richard Lewontin And The Argument From Ethos, David J. Depew Jan 2018

Richard Lewontin And The Argument From Ethos, David J. Depew

Poroi

This essay uses rhetorical analysis to defend the population geneticist Richard Lewontin from accusations made by E. O. Wilson and others that his Marxist social philosophy distorts his empirical science. I suggest that Lewontin’s appeal to his own authority as an experimental evolutionary biologist supports his claim that racism has no biological justification and that it is his opponents whose assumptions about society distort their scientific arguments.

A Neurorhetoric Of Incongruity, Michelle Gibbons Jan 2018

A Neurorhetoric Of Incongruity, Michelle Gibbons

Poroi

As a conceptual resource for rhetoric, contemporary neuroscience has considerable potential. Yet how exactly rhetoricians should deploy it as such requires careful consideration. While some engage neuroscience in a foundationalist fashion, using it to ground rhetoric in empirically tested claims, I make the case for a non-foundationalist approach, arguing that neuroscience can serve as a resource for rhetoric on the basis of epistemologies that value the speculative, indeterminate, and contingent. That is, we can use neuroscience to achieve perspective rather than proof and continued conversation rather than resolution. More specifically, I suggest placing neuroscience in incongruous contact with rhetoric, using ...


Technology, Hyperbole, And Irony, Alan G. Gross Jan 2018

Technology, Hyperbole, And Irony, Alan G. Gross

Poroi

Except for metaphor, tropes are arguably irrelevant to the analysis of science and technology. Among tropes, moreover, hyperbole and irony seem particularly ill-suited as the former exaggerates, while the latter undermines, two strategies at odds with a language intent on closely following the contours of the world of experience. While neither hyperbole nor irony has a place in the professional discourses of science and technology, both play a role in their popular representations. Hyperbole expresses our sense that these achievements exemplify the sublime, a form of experience applied at first to feelings of awe generated by great literature, then in ...


Codex Conquest: A Game Of Book History, Amy H. Chen Jan 2018

Codex Conquest: A Game Of Book History, Amy H. Chen

University of Iowa Libraries Open Educational Resources

Codex Conquest teaches students to recognize the most important printed books of Western civilization by their nation, century, genre, and current monetary value. Along the way, students learn world history and the scenarios that influence the shape of collections at institutions. Suiting a variety of curricular objectives and student levels, the game can be tailored to fit subject and time specifications and is accessible to students from high school through graduate school. How deeply students engage with the content of Codex Conquest depends on your pedagogy.

Modelling Participatory Design In Digital Humanities Pedagogy And Research, Hannah Scates Kettler, Joyce Tsai, Matthew T. Butler, Theresa Hercher, Paul Schmitt, Lindley Warren

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

With the support of the Mellon-funded Digital Bridges Initiative, the semester-long course, “Museum without Walls,” invites students to conduct new research and engage digital interface development related to the history of the Intermedia program at the University of Iowa. Renowned as one of the first MFA programs that encouraged art students to work across disciplines in their research and practice, Intermedia produced work that often integrated new technologies and media.

Focused on the study of a partially digitized corpus of videos made by students, faculty, and visiting artists between 1969-2003 in the program, the course pursues art historical lines of ...


The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte Aug 2017

The Learning Home: An Ethnographic Case-Study Of Curriculum, Place, And Design, Asavari Thatte

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

An overemphasis on exams or tests marks the present educational scenario in India (Majumdar & Mooij, 2011; Mehrotra, 2007) and the United States (Eisner, 2002; Noddings, 2003; Pinar, 2004; Schubert, 2010). The mainstream schooling system in India disregards the student’s individual needs, abilities, and lived realities (Sarangapani, 2003; Thapan, 2015). My experience of schooling in a mainstream school in India was marked by a sense of monotony, boredom, disengagement, and drudgery. The search for a pedagogical site where the students’ experiences differ from mine motivates this research.

The Learning Home, an alternative school in Pune, India, is a pedagogical site where every ...

Make-Believe: Uncertainty, Alterity, And Faith In Nineteenth-Century Supernatural Short Stories, Justin David Cosner Aug 2017

Make-Believe: Uncertainty, Alterity, And Faith In Nineteenth-Century Supernatural Short Stories, Justin David Cosner

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis, “Make-Believe: Uncertainty, Alterity, and Faith in Nineteenth-Century Supernatural Short Stories,” illustrates the confluence in nineteenth century America of a philosophical investment in uncertainty and the emergence of a genre suited to its expression. I argue that supernatural short story collections, characterized by stories with explicit fantastical elements or which leave open that possibility, helped voice and explore uncertainty as a critique of prevailing master narratives of both Enlightenment rationalism and religious orthodoxy. My study examines Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Mosses from an Old Manse (1846), Herman Melville’s The Piazza Tales (1856), Charles Chesnutt’s The Conjure Woman, and ...


Gravitas, Robert Scott Aug 2017

Gravitas, Robert Scott

Theses and Dissertations

This body of work was created during my time at the University of Iowa. The work operates as an embodiment of personal traumas and memories. Materials and processes are at the forefront of the work as they link me to my past. The scale of the work remains small not only for the sake of portability, but for its intimate relationship to the viewer.


Nocturnal Toys, Lee Allen White Aug 2017

Nocturnal Toys, Lee Allen White

Theses and Dissertations

I’m interested in the scar tissue, the blemishing of our perception from the ache of longing and estrangement that comes from repression and returns as enigma. I’m investigating the notion that the body itself is a puppet that succumbs to the control of outside forces, making it vulnerable to mistreatment. The paintings come from cathected suffering through reminiscences brought forth from amorous memories, resulting in new encounters that replace old associations. It is the memory, not the event, that becomes traumatic.
