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 ...

A Translation Of João Domingos Bomtempo's Piano Method: A Portuguese Contribution To Piano Pedagogy, Germano Gastal Mayer Aug 2017

A Translation Of João Domingos Bomtempo's Piano Method: A Portuguese Contribution To Piano Pedagogy, Germano Gastal Mayer

Theses and Dissertations

This essay offers an English translation of Elementos de Musica e Methodo de Tocar Piano Forte (Elements of Music and Method of Playing the Piano-Forte), op. 19, by the Portuguese composer-pianist João Domingos Bomtempo (1775-1842). His method, the first of its kind written by a Portuguese national, was published in 1816 by Clementi & Co. in London. Bomtempo later rewrote his book, expanding its scope, but the second version survives only as an unfinished manuscript. My translation presents both versions of this instructional work in a single text, distinguishing the contents according to the two sources, with the aim of providing ...


A 'Mity' Life: The Career Of Miles H. Johnson, Matthew David Wanken Aug 2017

A 'Mity' Life: The Career Of Miles H. Johnson, Matthew David Wanken

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis provides a historical account of the career of Miles “Mity” Johnson. Johnson taught music for thirty-seven years at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. During those years, he led the St. Olaf Band to national and international prominence. Johnson’s professional influences traverse his work as a collegiate band director, and horn recitalist and teacher, as well as his contributions to professional development for conductors and the adult community band movement.

This research draws heavily on archival materials from the Shaw-Olson Center for College History at St. Olaf College along with several personal collections, including Johnson’s own ...


Latin Labyrinths, Celtic Knots: Modernism And The Dead In Irish And Latin American Literature, Jacob Bender Aug 2017

Latin Labyrinths, Celtic Knots: Modernism And The Dead In Irish And Latin American Literature, Jacob Bender

Theses and Dissertations

The Irish throughout their tumultuous history immigrated not only to North America but across Latin America, particularly to Cuba, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Mexico. Ireland and many of these Latin American countries share a close yet under-examined relationship, inasmuch as they are predominantly Catholic, post-colonial, hybrid populations with fraught immigrant experiences abroad and long histories of resisting Anglo-centric imperialism at home. More particularly, the peoples of these nations engage intimately with the dead (as shown, for example, by the Mexican Day of the Dead and Celtic roots of Halloween), and the dead appear frequently in literature from these ...


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 ...


Art Unto Death, Stephen W. Evans Aug 2017

Art Unto Death, Stephen W. Evans

Theses and Dissertations

As people living in 2017, what, if anything, have we come to know about art as a whole? What can we say about the artistic impulse? What is art for, and what does it stand to show us about ourselves today? In this paper, I try to address these questions, from the standpoint of both an artist and a human being. Examining art as ancient as the prehistoric cave paintings, as well as art of the present day, I discuss certain ontological traits that art-making has both lost and maintained over the years. Through Heidegger’s philosophy of Being, Tillich ...


Visualizing Temporality In Music: Music Perception – Feature Extraction, Nima Hamidi Ghalehjegh Aug 2017

Visualizing Temporality In Music: Music Perception – Feature Extraction, Nima Hamidi Ghalehjegh

Theses and Dissertations

Recently, there have been efforts to design more efficient ways to internalize music by applying the disciplines of cognition, psychology, temporality, aesthetics, and philosophy. Bringing together the fields of art and science, computational techniques can also be applied to musical analysis. Although a wide range of research projects have been conducted, the automatization of music analysis remains emergent. Importantly, patterns are revealed by using automated tools to analyze core musical elements created from melodies, harmonies, and rhythms, high-level features that are perceivable by the human ear. For music to be captured and successfully analyzed by a computer, however, one needs ...


Naissance Et Évolution D’Une Mentalité Populaire Urbaine Au Xxe Siècle: Paysage Urbain Et Litterature Populaire, Stève Levillain Aug 2017

Naissance Et Évolution D’Une Mentalité Populaire Urbaine Au Xxe Siècle: Paysage Urbain Et Litterature Populaire, Stève Levillain

Theses and Dissertations

The literatures of Immigration from North Africa to France represent one of the constitutive fields of investigation for Postcolonial Francophone studies. As such, approaches to this are often locked in a postcolonial perspective. Through my courses in 20th century literature, I discovered several aspects of literature of immigration that relate to French popular literature. In light of this, my dissertation establishes a link between these two literary genres by analyzing the evolution of urban spaces in the Parisian periphery. The primary objective of this dissertation is to translate aspects of the contemporary issues of the French banlieues from a purely ...


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.
