Getting Down In The Muds: A Ludological Perspective On Arguers, Michael A. Yong-Set Jun 2020

Getting Down In The Muds: A Ludological Perspective On Arguers, Michael A. Yong-Set

OSSA Conference Archive

Dan Cohen (2018) and Michael Gilbert (1997) have variously emphasized the need for argumentation theorists to pay attention to ‘arguers’ and not just ‘arguments.’ Following Yong-Set (2016), this paper will suggest that ‘games’ can be leveraged to enrich an understanding of the ‘person’ aspect of argumentation.

Ludology is the academic and critical study of games qua games, especially in terms of system design, player experience and the socio-cultural dynamics of gaming. By drawing upon and extending the lessons learned from ludologist Bartle’s (1996, 2012) analysis of the relation between player-types and games that successfully implement Multi-User-Dungeons (MUDs), I argue ...


"Family Portrait: Insert Here"An Artistic Multi-Media Manipulation Of Familial Cultural And Racial Identity Exploration As A Multiracial Student., Josie Szankiewicz May 2020

"Family Portrait: Insert Here"An Artistic Multi-Media Manipulation Of Familial Cultural And Racial Identity Exploration As A Multiracial Student., Josie Szankiewicz

Scholars Week

"Family Portrait: Insert Here" by Josie Szankiewicz (Photograph printed with graphite pencil drawings, white pencil, acrylic paint on watercolor paper) I have gazed deeply into every face of the individuals photographed in this family portrait of the Szankiewicz family. This photograph was most likely taken in 1923 in New York, shortly after the family’s immigration from Poland. Though I will never know much of the stories of each of these individuals, I have constantly felt the pull to delve into the mystery of my family’s history. Although I feel a clashing of cultural identities, due to my Japanese-American ...

Using Design To Advocate For Transit Justice, Aneesha Solomon, Tanvi Muruges, Valerie Bravo May 2020

Using Design To Advocate For Transit Justice, Aneesha Solomon, Tanvi Muruges, Valerie Bravo

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

As a group of three design students from USF, we collaborated with SOMCAN to design a series of posters and stickers in support of their transit justice campaign. SOMCAN is a non-profit organization that provides services to help community members with common struggles such as evictions, searches for affordable housing, employment, childcare, discrimination, and most recently transit justice. The transit justice campaign is meant to bring awareness to the high cost of MUNI fares and the impact it has on communities who depend on it the most. We created a series 7 posters that each represented a variety of SF ...


Bordando Asas Para Os Que No Puderam Voar (Embroidering Wings For Those Who Did Not Get To Fly): Activism And Grief In Zuzu Angel's Politically-Engaged Fashion, Luiza Repsold Franca May 2020

Bordando Asas Para Os Que No Puderam Voar (Embroidering Wings For Those Who Did Not Get To Fly): Activism And Grief In Zuzu Angel's Politically-Engaged Fashion, Luiza Repsold Franca

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

This essay explores how Brazilian seamstress-turned-designer Zuzu Angel produced politically-engaged fashion collections as a means for processing her personal grief and denouncing the atrocities faced by the Brazilian youth during the Military Dictatorship (1964-1985). After Angel's son Stuart, a leftist activist, was kidnapped and brutally tortured to death by the military regime, Zuzu began to incorporate allegorical details into her commercial fashion designs. These primarily took the form of delicate, seemingly naive embroidered images, such as angels, toy soldiers, ships and trucks- concealed synthesized references that expressed Angel's grief for her son and her country. Drawing from original ...


Visual Arts Education For Grades 6-12 In Arkansas And Its Changes Since The Twentieth Century, Callie Anna Dunlap Oxner May 2020

Visual Arts Education For Grades 6-12 In Arkansas And Its Changes Since The Twentieth Century, Callie Anna Dunlap Oxner

Scholars Day Conference

The field of education in the United States has changed greatly in many ways since its foundation. No longer do students meet in small log cabins with all ages together to learn the basics of a few practical subjects before returning to regular life. The federal government seeks to provide consistently updated standards for how children of all ages should be instructed and have frequently modernized the education system. From creating mandated subjects of learning, such as math, science, reading, writing, foreign languages, and art, raising teacher salaries, and instigating assessments to ensure complete subject literacy, America has shown in ...


Not Exceptions: Historic Views Of Women In Art And The Impact On Contemporary Women Artists, Abby Leal May 2020

Not Exceptions: Historic Views Of Women In Art And The Impact On Contemporary Women Artists, Abby Leal

Scholars Day Conference

The misconception that artists of centuries past were almost exclusively men is no accident. It is a direct result of institutional inequity that kept women artists, though they lacked neither the talent nor the initiative of their counterparts, in a less advantageous position. They were denied the same opportunities for education and employment as men, and many women artists, even those with successful careers, have been lost to history. With this essay, I hope to give women artists the credit they deserve for their diversity. Not all women experienced their position in the art world the same way. Some sought ...


Wearable Life: Translating Medicinal Plant Properties In Jewelry, Lucas White May 2020

Wearable Life: Translating Medicinal Plant Properties In Jewelry, Lucas White

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The fields of art and science have always been in a tempestuous relationship, sometimes inspiring one another, other times completely opposing the other. Botanical knowledge of native plant species is disappearing as human development expands, and how this knowledge is obtained is just as equally becoming scarce. With the combination of jewelry-making techniques and plant identification, the properties of native Virginia plants and what medicinal benefits those plants have on the human body are showcased through aesthetic pieces of jewelry and botanical imagery that correspond to specific points on the human form. These pieces include each plant's anatomy that ...


Vern Multilingual Font System, Nathan Zawadzki Apr 2020

Vern Multilingual Font System, Nathan Zawadzki

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

Vern is designed in Latin, Cyrillic, and Hebrew for a total of roughly 160 characters or glyphs in this writing system. Based on the research of these systems, a reverse contrast style fits Cyrillic and Hebrew, while normal contrast has more difficulty in adjusting to them. This slab serif, reverse contrast style keeps the look of a traditional serif font in Latin. Vern’s unified design across multiple languages works in media such as book text or large-scale signage.


A Sensual Exploration Of Melancholy, Rachel Blumer Apr 2020

A Sensual Exploration Of Melancholy, Rachel Blumer

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

What does it mean to be melancholy? It is a distinct and personal emotion—a type of sadness and a feeling all its own. Melancholy is not something people usually seek out, but it can be a comfortable, pensive, and creative space to sit in. The beautiful thing about melancholy is how one is able to be both joyful and sorrowful at the same time. I began the project by conducting a survey about what others think sadness smells, tastes, and sounds like. I have also researched poetry and music. I explore melancholy in different mediums and creative techniques, including ...


Unhinged: Anthology, Elizabeth Shepard Apr 2020

Unhinged: Anthology, Elizabeth Shepard

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

Unhinged explores women in mythology and religion that are perceived as “evil,” but in my telling, are reincarnated as modern, everyday female leads. The theme of Unhinged: Anthology is how women fight oppressive forces, not shying away from female identity and power. I’ve adapted my stories from myths and folklore from other cultures. The first three stories in Unhinged: Anthology are: “The Huldra“ (Norse), “The Rangda” (Balinese) and “The Maenad” (Greek). I’ve written these stories in the form of scripts, approved by my committee members. Because traditional black-and-white high contrast adds to the horror aesthetic, the medium for ...


Disguysed, Margaret Feltman-Ruiz Apr 2020

Disguysed, Margaret Feltman-Ruiz

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

Throughout history, women had to change themselves in order to accomplish their goals. My thesis brings attention to these often forgotten or dismissed women of the past. Disguysed is a nonfiction children’s book that focuses on 12 women from history who disguised themselves as men to further their careers or lives. Each spread contains an illustration of the woman, along with a biography from the research I collected. Separate from the biographies, the book contains extra historical context to shed light on the social climates that these women experienced. The design of the illustrations isn’t masculine or feminine ...


A Guide To African Princesses, Makayla Ray Apr 2020

A Guide To African Princesses, Makayla Ray

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

A Guide to African Princesses inspires young Black/African American girls and will encourage Black/African American storylines in Hollywood. It includes Princess Yennenga, Queen of Sheba, Queen Amina of Zazzau Kingdom, Kandake, the empress of Ethiopia, and Yaa Asantewa. To achieve this, the guide focuses on having text including each princess’s name, lifespan, legacy, and appropriate phonetic transcription. Phonetic transcription is important because the spelling of a word or name does not always tell someone how to pronounce it. The guide also includes decorative elements; the decorative elements, linking back to the culture of each African princess. Research ...


Wild Apparel: A Sustainable Clothing Line, Jogvan Andreas A. Jacobsen Apr 2020

Wild Apparel: A Sustainable Clothing Line, Jogvan Andreas A. Jacobsen

Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE)

The fashion industry has increasingly contributed to environmental waste through production and distrubution of crops, fibers, and garments that are dumped every day, polluting our water, soil, and air. My sustainable clothing line does the opposite, with clothes and packages built from recycled materials. With Wild Apparel, I will create casual streetware clothes with a subconcsious focus on being sustainable, contributing to bettering our earth, although not in a protesting or reprimanding way. The clothes are made from recycled plastic, driven by solar powered machines and fair wages to the employees. Wild Apparel will be working with organizations around the ...

S E L F: A Visual Study Of Dissociation, Bear Cooper Apr 2020

S E L F: A Visual Study Of Dissociation, Bear Cooper

Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship (SOARS)

Experiencing prolonged sexual abuse can lead to a shift in the sense of self as the mind tries to protect itself. Depression, low self-esteem, guilt –– these are all symptoms we frequently hear associated with the aftermath of trauma. They are mentioned enough that we consider ourselves familiar with them. However, symptoms like depersonalization and alexithymia are symptoms not commonly understood. This visual study examines these dissociatve symptoms by looking at the separation of the body and mind that occurs after sexual trauma. S e l f is an etching-based creative research to understand these psychological aspects of processing sexual trauma ...


Wood-Fired Train Kiln, Ryan Greene Apr 2020

Wood-Fired Train Kiln, Ryan Greene

Showcase of Osprey Advancements in Research and Scholarship (SOARS)

My research focused on constructing a wood-fired train kiln. I utilized ashlar fine tooled masonry techniques to create a dry-stacked formation. Primarily, I analyzed the different materials to which I had access and determined the proper steps to create an ideal structure. In order to accomplish this, I sorted, cut, and shaved various series of both insulating and dense fire bricks to create a perfect fit, an expansion joint or a level surface. If a level surface could not be attained using solely bricks then a compound termed “butter” was applied, but I utilized a high temperature refractory mortar when ...


Vacation Home Design, Megan Hall Apr 2020

Vacation Home Design, Megan Hall

Undergraduate Research Conference

A family of four requested a contemporary design for a 900 square-foot vacation home. Due to the husband’s limited mobility, the accessibility standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guided the design because the layout must accommodate a future wheelchair. The two sons requested a loft with a private bath for their sleeping quarters.


Mobile Application For Animal Health: A Design Research In User Interface, Sierra White Mar 2020

Mobile Application For Animal Health: A Design Research In User Interface, Sierra White

Georgia College Student Research Events

Apps function to increase productivity and allow the user to complete tasks conveniently from their mobile device. As a college student who has several pets, I have found that there is no good app on the market which caters to every pet parent’s needs, which forces them to download four or five apps. To combat this problem, FurPaws gives the user a way to document every aspect of their pet’s health and daily routine, as well as providing information on first aid and expert, real-time advice from veterinarians. The E-Vet page is available to guests who have not ...


Apology Dice - Collaborative Conversation About Reconciliation, Clement Yeh Feb 2020

Apology Dice - Collaborative Conversation About Reconciliation, Clement Yeh

Teaching Practices Colloquium

The Apology Dice is an interactive art performance that engages small groups in conversation—about Indian Residential Schools, colonialization, and possibilities of reconciliation— through the rolling of large, custom-made cedar dice. Each die is cast one at a time to form a sentence. The words on the first die read: “I am” / “We are” / “They are”. The second reads: “so” / “fairly” / “really” / “not” / “somewhat” / “deeply”. The third die displays “sorry” on five sides and “tired of this” on the remaining side. The participant reads the sentence aloud and interprets its meaning, in the context of First Nations reconciliation in Canada ...


An Analysis Of The Attribution Of The Louvre Abu Dhabi Salvator Mundi, Sydney Welch Jan 2020

An Analysis Of The Attribution Of The Louvre Abu Dhabi Salvator Mundi, Sydney Welch

Capstone Showcase

In 2017, the Salvator Mundi painting made headlines for its attribution to Leonardo da Vinci and subsequent recording breaking price tag. However, the attribution has raised many questions making us rethink the attribution process as a whole. Through a closer look at Leonardo’s role as a court painter and his place in the tradition of the Renaissance workshop, we can challenge our understanding of authorship. The problematic provenance and series of poor restorations further challenges the attribution of this painting. Through a close analysis of these aforementioned issues, and by developing an understanding of Leonardo’s process and his ...


Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson Dec 2019

Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson

Yale Day of Data

Using digital data necessarily involves software. How do institutions think about software in the context of the long-term usability of their data assets? How do they address usability challenges uniquely posed by software such as, license restrictions, legacy software, code rot, and dependencies? These questions are germane to the agenda set forth by the FAIR principles. At Yale University, a team in the Library is looking into the application of a novel approach to emulation as a potential solution. In this presentation, we will outline the work of the Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program, discuss our plans for ...


From Bird-Woman To Mermaid: The Shifting Image Of The Medieval Siren, Claire Cannell May 2019

From Bird-Woman To Mermaid: The Shifting Image Of The Medieval Siren, Claire Cannell

Student Research Symposium

During the Middle Ages, the siren transforms from its classical status as grotesque bird-woman into an alluring mermaid. A female monster, the siren represents what is considered monstrous in women. I plan to examine the unstable image of the siren in order to better understand the religious and social status of the medieval European woman. The siren is contextualized among contemporary secular images of female sexuality and the writings of religious authorities such as Leander of Seville, who wrote that all women were either nuns or sirens. I plan to analyze the implications of the nun-siren binary created by Leander ...


Mentality: Promoting Social Change Through Design, Rommel Ballesteros Apr 2019

Mentality: Promoting Social Change Through Design, Rommel Ballesteros

Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD

In “Mentality: Promoting Social Change Through Design,” I will discuss design’s potential to spark discussion and inspire social change. These themes will be explored through the examination of Mentality, a concept for a men’s self-care kit, which aims to normalize and promote the awareness of mental health while also bringing to light certain gender disparities in attitudes towards such topics. Through this analysis, I hope to demonstrate the importance of curated aesthetics in everyday life as a powerful tool for social change, as well as to highlight the designer’s responsibility to be aware of the implications and ...

Caddo Inspired Coil Pots, Jordan Weaver Apr 2019

Caddo Inspired Coil Pots, Jordan Weaver

Undergraduate Research Conference

When my bosses, John Handley and Alisa Steed, asked me to plan an educational program to go along with the upcoming Contemporary Caddo art show at the Cole Art Center I knew I wanted to find an art lesson to teach children. Creating is a great way to teach children about history because it invites them to take an active role in their education, rather than passively listening. After learning that traditional Caddo potters created coil pots out of clay, I knew I wanted to teach this art form to children in the community. Making coil pots requires children to ...


The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, Austin Cullen Apr 2019

The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, Austin Cullen

Undergraduate Research Conference

The artist residency is a critical and informative experience that is privileged to few, and revered by many. Creating work in a completely foreign environment can yield beautiful and new work that the artists could have never conceived of making. Artwork could be made about anything, but choosing a specific subject matter, or theme, can be very challenging. This difficulty arises from lack of knowledge, experience, or most importantly, being bored with one's surroundings. Artist residencies, often being in other countries and always providing a new atmosphere, can be a great way to jumpstart new artwork. Residencies are incredibly ...

5 X 5: Conceptual And Technical Challenge, Madeline Castillo

Undergraduate Research Conference

Goals for the Week to Week Project

As an undergraduate student pursuing a BFA, the apotheosis of my education is to find and develop the content for my art and convey it in the form of my capstone BFA exhibition. My creative research for this project consisted of building a finished work of art each week during a five-week time period. The intent of the project was to expedite concept development and increase my personal technical speed while focusing on craftsmanship and design. Having seven days to respond to a content prompt, I was challenged to focus on creating without ...
