“Because Like – And So I Don’T – So I Think It’S Maybe, I Don’T Know”: Performing Traumatic Effects While Reading Lynda Barry’S The Freddie Stories, David Lewkowich, Michelle Miller Stafford May 2020

“Because Like – And So I Don’T – So I Think It’S Maybe, I Don’T Know”: Performing Traumatic Effects While Reading Lynda Barry’S The Freddie Stories, David Lewkowich, Michelle Miller Stafford

SANE journal: Sequential Art Narrative in Education

As a picture of childhood composed from the point of view of a young boy named Freddie, who suffers the effects of repeated and ongoing trauma, the experience of reading The Freddie Stories presents a number of interpretive challenges: its main character is often split and in various states of disassociation, the difference between dreaming and waking life is not always obvious, multiple monsters appear in different and changeable forms, and as Freddie experiences repeated difficulties with language and cognitive function, his traumatic past enfolds upon the time in which the story is set. In this paper, we analyze how ...


Effects Of Gender And Ethnicity On Stem Self-Competencies In Classroom Interactions, Baudelio Abrica May 2020

Effects Of Gender And Ethnicity On Stem Self-Competencies In Classroom Interactions, Baudelio Abrica

UCARE Research Products

Well established is a connection between gender stereotypes and children’s STEM perceptions. STEM self-concept, for example, is consistently identified as stronger for boys than girls (Cvencek et. et al 2011). While research has documented differences in STEM self-competencies between adolescent boys and girls (Miller et. al 2018), there remains much to be learned about the classroom conditions that may explain how children understand stereotypes and act on that understanding in their interactions with other children. This research examined how informal classroom activities reveal both racial and gendered stereotypical preference patterns and how those patterns relate to students’ self-competencies. Moving ...

Gendering Art History In The Victorian Age: Anna Jameson, Elizabeth Eastlake, And George Eliot In Florence, Antje Anderson May 2020

Gendering Art History In The Victorian Age: Anna Jameson, Elizabeth Eastlake, And George Eliot In Florence, Antje Anderson

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

This thesis investigates how three professional Victorian women writers, Anna Jameson, Elizabeth Eastlake, and George Eliot, wrote about Renaissance art in Florence. As nineteenth-century women, they were excluded from certain realms of knowledge, agency, and influence. This exclusion (complicated by their privilege in terms of class, nationality, and education) influenced the way they experienced and wrote about art. The introduction addresses how changing modes of travel, broader access to publication, and art history’s gradual emergence as an academic discipline helped shape their careers as women art writers—the well-known “Mrs. Jameson” as a popularizer of art history for a ...


A Bright Size Transformation: Examining Pat Metheny's Improvisatory Evolution Through Select Original Compositions From The Album Bright Size Life (1976), Lee Heerspink May 2020

A Bright Size Transformation: Examining Pat Metheny's Improvisatory Evolution Through Select Original Compositions From The Album Bright Size Life (1976), Lee Heerspink

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Pat Metheny has consistently been one of the most widely celebrated and prominent jazz guitarists from the mid-1970s to present day. Over the course of Metheny’s 45-year career, he has accumulated 44 albums as a band leader, 20 Grammy awards, and numerous “Best Jazz Guitarist” awards from DownBeat and JazzTimes. Despite the general sources, articles and interviews conducted about Metheny’s life and music, there is a lack of scholarly research which addresses how Pat Metheny’s improvisatory approach has changed throughout the course of his career.

This document provides a better understanding of Pat Metheny’s improvisatory evolution ...


In Time Gone By: Song Cycle For Baritone And Six Players, Bryan Grosbach May 2020

In Time Gone By: Song Cycle For Baritone And Six Players, Bryan Grosbach

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

In Time Gone By is a song cycle for Baritone vocalist and Pierrot Ensemble + percussion that explores the value of life being a byproduct of its finitude. Only during the most vulnerable and difficult events of that life can self-realization occur. These topics are wrapped into a “love-story” narrative crafted from select poems from Chamber Music by James Joyce and select quotes from the prose Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions by John Donne. Using intervallic focus as a tool for development, the piece transitions from sparse quintal harmony to lush tertian harmony as a musical metaphor for the self-realization of the ...


The Meaning Of Peace: William Faulkner, Modernism, And Perpetual Civil War, Jason Luke Folk May 2020

The Meaning Of Peace: William Faulkner, Modernism, And Perpetual Civil War, Jason Luke Folk

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Much of scholarship regarding the presence of war in literary modernism has foregrounded psychic trauma endured by veterans of World War I. The returning soldier is often figured as representative of the war’s infiltration of the homefront. The common argument claims that the erosion of the distinction between war and peace (as well as private and public) is a mirror image of the veteran’s wounded psyche. This thesis, however, argues that peace and war in the West have always been indistinct. The body politic is, in actuality, constituted by a perpetual civil war. Furthermore, the novels of William ...


At The End Of The Dock, Christina D. Ensign May 2020

At The End Of The Dock, Christina D. Ensign

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Highly emotional and wildly eclectic, At the End of the Dock is a nine-movement work for string quintet, jazz quintet, and piano. As a culmination of my studies of composers who have been most inspirational to my work as a student, theorist, and composer, I have written a piece which strives to encapsulate the styles of many into a single harmonious package. Standing as the foundation are three interludes, namely movements three, five, and seven, which reflect upon a childrens’ tune heard in the opening movement, “Prologue.” These movements, which represent loneliness, tie together the larger and more overtly “jazz ...


Desire Satisfaction Theories And The Problem Of Depression, Andrew Spaid Apr 2020

Desire Satisfaction Theories And The Problem Of Depression, Andrew Spaid

Philosophy Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

This dissertation argues that the desire satisfaction theory, arguably the dominant theory of well-being at present, fails to explain why depression is bad for a person. People with clinical depression desire almost nothing, but the few desires they do have are almost all satisfied. So it appears the theory must say these people are relatively well-off. A number of possible responses on behalf of the theory are considered, and I argue that each response either fails outright, or requires modifications to the desire satisfaction theory which make the theory unattractive for other reasons.

Inscribing The South For Harper's Weekly In 1866, Ashlyn Stewart Apr 2020

Inscribing The South For Harper's Weekly In 1866, Ashlyn Stewart

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

The top weekly publication in the nineteenth-century United States, Harper’s Weekly, faced a new challenge after it had survived the Civil War: what would keep readers subscribing to the periodical in peacetime? To maintain their remarkably large readership, the editors looked southward and produced abundant content about the Reconstruction South for its primarily Northeastern readership. A noteworthy portion of that content was a series of powerful illustrated articles known as “Pictures of the South,” which ran from April to October 1866. Seasoned war correspondents Alfred R. Waud and Theodore R. Davis travelled through the rapidly rebuilding South on behalf ...

"You Have Witchcraft In Your Lips": Sensory Witchcraft In Shakespeare's Antony And Cleopatra And Macbeth, Hannah Kanninen Apr 2020

"You Have Witchcraft In Your Lips": Sensory Witchcraft In Shakespeare's Antony And Cleopatra And Macbeth, Hannah Kanninen

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Scholarship on witches and witchcraft within Shakespeare’s plays has been a popular subject for many scholars. But one of Shakespeare’s most famous characters has not yet been integrated into this scholarship: Cleopatra from Antony and Cleopatra. Although scholars have often noted her “witchiness,” none have argued for an interpretation of Cleopatra as a witch. This is because traditional definitions of witchcraft have not been able to include Cleopatra. In comparison, Lady Macbeth from Macbeth has often been cited as the fourth witch in the play. But this interpretation relies upon examining Lady Macbeth’s perceived masculinity, which subsequently ...


Vagueness And The Logic Of The World, Zack Garrett Apr 2020

Vagueness And The Logic Of The World, Zack Garrett

Philosophy Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

In this dissertation, I argue that vagueness is a metaphysical phenomenon---that properties and objects can be vague---and propose a trivalent theory of vagueness meant to account for the vagueness in the world. In the first half, I argue against the theories that preserve classical logic. These theories include epistemicism, contextualism, and semantic nihilism. My objections to these theories are independent of considerations of the possibility that vagueness is a metaphysical phenomenon. However, I also argue that these theories are not capable of accommodating metaphysical vagueness.

As I move into my positive theory, I first argue for the possibility of metaphysical ...

Study Of Native Colombian Tribes' Art As A Mean Of Inspiration, Sofia Fernandez

UCARE Research Products

Culture is one of the most important aspects of a human being, it shapes our behavior and identity since we are born. It is our lifestyle and it refers to many aspects such as the language we use, our values, traditions, beliefs, etc. Cultural diversity is one of the aspects communities nowadays emphasize the most, they want people to be mindful and respectful of the different cultures represented within the community itself. This creative project examines Latin American art, particularly Indigenous Colombian art as a source of inspiration for the creation of a series of artworks. This project aims to ...

A compilation of short fiction from Dr. Bev’s ‘Introduction to English Studies’

Throughout history, humankind has gathered together collections of beautiful things, ranging from bottle-caps to coins to seashells or even flowers. No matter the season, humans have devoted hours of their time to admire and share the world’s beauty with those around them. These relationships then become their own collections of the beautiful, friends and family gathering together to appreciate that which they find most lovely, spanning across distance, hardship, and time. Today, we continue to admire the world’s beauty and cherish the love we find ...

Expropriation And Forced Migrations: The Displacement Of Colonial Agricultural Laborers In Mohammed Dib’S Algerian Trilogy, Benjamin Sparks Apr 2020

Expropriation And Forced Migrations: The Displacement Of Colonial Agricultural Laborers In Mohammed Dib’S Algerian Trilogy, Benjamin Sparks

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

Mohammed Dib, in his Algerian trilogy, demonstrates the effects of expropriation and mendicancy on the patterns of migration of agricultural laborers, illustrating the historical context of colonial Algeria through the act of storytelling. Mohammed Dib in 1949 devised the idea to write “un roman aux proportions assez vastes qui devait présenter une sorte de portrait divers de l’Algérie” (Déjeux 145) which would later become what constitutes the Algerian trilogy consisting of La Grande maison published in 1952, L’Incendie in 1954, and finally Le Métier à tisser in 1957. The trilogy tells the story of Omar’s upbringing in ...


“Traduit De L’Américain” As Text And Paratext, Mort Guiney Apr 2020

“Traduit De L’Américain” As Text And Paratext, Mort Guiney

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

The online translation forum Wordreference.com contains a thread that began in July of 2005, discussing the use and possible abuse of the expression “traduit de l’américain” as it often, though not always, appears in the front matter of French translations of American literature. The discussion contains 197 posts covering a period of more than eight years; clearly, the use of “américain” in this context elicits strong reactions among literary experts, both Anglophone and Francophone. Does it imply that “Américain” is a different language from “Anglais”? Or that it is an inferior version of English? Why are some American ...


La Dimension Cinématographique Du Paysage Dans L’Œuvre Littéraire De Julien Gracq, El Arbi El Bakkali Apr 2020

La Dimension Cinématographique Du Paysage Dans L’Œuvre Littéraire De Julien Gracq, El Arbi El Bakkali

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

Classé parmi les maîtres de la littérature contemporaine en France, Julien Gracq de son vrai nom Louis Poirier (professeur de géographie) a pu marquer sa carrière d’écrivain sans qu’il s’inscrive à aucun courant littéraire précis. Sa production littéraire est protéiforme et s’étale sur deux grandes périodes littéraires: la première (1938-1967) prenait du surréalisme et de la fiction comme cadre principal de création littéraire tandis que la seconde période (1967-1992) était axée sur des fragments d’autobiographie, réflexions sur la littérature et médiations géographiques. Il est important de souligner que le point commun entre ces deux périodes ...

L’Art Féminin, Un Cri D’Espoir Pour L’Humanité, Zohra Lhioui

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

A travers une étude réalisée au Maroc, dans la Région de Meknès-Tafilalet (Centre-Est du royaume), et qui a été couronnée par la publication d’un ouvrage d’art portant le titre Femmes artistes de Meknès- Tafilalet (voir couverture jointe à cette proposition de communication), il ressort que l’art chez les femmes de cette région n’est pas une simple question de créativité et de passion, il est aussi un moyen esthétique d’exprimer la richesse du patrimoine, la culture de leur société et leur attachement à la nature, à l’environnement, bref à la vie tout court. Que ce ...

“Nous Étions Ici Pour Durer”: Memorialization And Environmental Advocacy In Véronique Tadjo’S En Compagnie Des Hommes, Marda Messay

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

Detected for the first time in 1976 in Northern Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and in Southern Sudan (now South Sudan), the Ebola virus has reemerged periodically mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa. The deadliest outbreak of Ebola occurred in Guinea, eventually spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone from 2014-2016. At the end, there were 28, 652 cases and 11, 325 deaths (cdc.gov). The outbreak generated international news coverage and sparked panic, especially once cases were reported in the U.S., in Spain and in the UK. It also incited Veronique Tadjo’s latest work, En compagnie des Hommes ...


Desire To Know: Erudition, Empiricism And Personal Identity, Sophia Helverson Apr 2020

Desire To Know: Erudition, Empiricism And Personal Identity, Sophia Helverson

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

Literary erudition, erudition displaced from the realm of fact and research into the space of fiction, presents a curious paradox; can fiction help us understand facts? In this essay, I will explore literary erudition for its effects on the reader. To do this, I will first offer a working hypothesis on the shape of literary erudition today, then offer a limit case: the autofictive novels of Nina Bouraoui, specifically Mes mauvaises pensées (2005) and Tous les hommes désirent naturellement savoir (2018) in order to make the argument that the erudite approach to scholarship can provide an essential mode of engaging ...


Remembering And Experiencing The Land In Exile In Marie-Célie Agnant’S La Dot De Sara And Gisèle Pineau’S L’Exil Selon Julia, Marie Paillard Apr 2020

Remembering And Experiencing The Land In Exile In Marie-Célie Agnant’S La Dot De Sara And Gisèle Pineau’S L’Exil Selon Julia, Marie Paillard

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

In novels that stage migratory pathways, the exploring characters can perform circulation through different channels and processes, without necessarily operating a physical movement. A geographical and a corporeal process exist, but even when the concrete, physical exploration stops, it is somehow also both lived, experienced, reconstructed and imagined differently through the body and through corporeal exploration. In this paper, I argue that embodied memory can circulate through points of entanglement without any process of movement physically occurring, and these points of entanglement can all be observed interacting in the body of the migrant. For instance, sensations enable the characters to ...


Writing After The Human: Marie Darrieussecq’S And Anne Garréta’S Posthumanisms, Annabel L. Kim Apr 2020

Writing After The Human: Marie Darrieussecq’S And Anne Garréta’S Posthumanisms, Annabel L. Kim

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

In our current moment of climate catastrophe and impending planetary doom, the posthuman seems like a harbinger of an all too imminent reality (felt especially keenly in the age of COVID-19). In the twenty-first century, the humanities, grappling with the multifarious failures and excesses of traditional humanism, are attempting to abandon the anthropocentric epistemologies and practices that have characterized Western thought and culture and to create new models for thinking the world—models that are able to accommodate the nonhuman and welcome other forms of life and matter as objects of focus, moving thus from an imperialist vertical mode of ...


Claiming The Land: The Spanish Presence In Colonial Algeria, Lavinia Horner Apr 2020

Claiming The Land: The Spanish Presence In Colonial Algeria, Lavinia Horner

20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium

Emmanuel Roblès: Both parents – Spanish descent

Albert Camus: Father – French; Mother – Spanish descent

Roblès’ and Camus’ literary as well as epistolary testimonies disrupt the French-Arab/Berber dichotomous colonial narrative, thus expanding pied-noir legacies and unraveling little-known aspects of the mostly forgotten, yet indelible Spanish presence in colonial Algeria.

The theoretical framework follows a multidisciplinary approach drawing from literature, psychology and legal studies to investigate how assertive literary testimonies can switch perspectives on what will be remembered.

If the understanding of history is not finalized, but open, then bringing to light little-known testimonies extant in both Roblès’ and Camus’ discourses will ...
