Archaeological Investigations Of The South Blairsville Industry Archaeological District: A Functional And Landscape Analysis, Hannah E. Harvey Aug 2017

Archaeological Investigations Of The South Blairsville Industry Archaeological District: A Functional And Landscape Analysis, Hannah E. Harvey

Theses and Dissertations (All)

The South Blairsville Industry Archaeological District near Blairsville, Pennsylvania includes the remains of an early-twentieth century plate glass factory and associated workers’ housing. Between 1903 and 1935 the factory produced plate glass for numerous applications, including storefront windows and automobile windshields. The factory and housing are linked to major themes of industrial change, the development of modern infrastructure, and the experiences of immigrant workers. An archaeological survey conducted within the district has identified extensive intact architectural remnants of the factory, as well as intact stratigraphy and house foundations within the workers’ housing. Analysis of the factory remains, soil profiles, artifacts ...

The Queen Anne Style In Houses Of Boone, Iowa: A Social And Economic Interpretation, Lori Osmus Kappmeyer Jun 2017

The Queen Anne Style In Houses Of Boone, Iowa: A Social And Economic Interpretation, Lori Osmus Kappmeyer

Lori O. Kappmeyer

One of the premises of this thesis was that the way in which the Queen Anne style was manifested in Boone, Iowa was a reflection of the social and economic characteristics of that town in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The Queen Anne style was the dominant style used for American houses built between 1880 and 1900, when Boone experienced its greatest building boom. While it would be reasonable to expect that many of the houses in Boone would be in the Queen Anne style, surprisingly few houses in Boone are full expressions of that style. A popular ...

Embodying Rhythm Nation: Multimodal Hip Hop Dance As A Site For Adolescent Social-Emotional And Political Development, Lauren M. Roygardner

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This exploratory study employed qualitative methodology, specifically values analysis, to learn more about how being involved within Hip hop dance communities positively relates to adolescent development. Adolescence was defined herein as ages 13-23. The study investigated Hip hop dance communities in terms of cultural expertise (i.e. novice, intermediate and advanced/expert) to look specifically at dance narratives (i.e. peak experience narratives and “I dance because” essays) and hip hop dance performances. The primary purpose of this dissertation was to (1) explore how adolescents use multimodal Hip hop dance discourse for social-emotional development and critical consciousness, and to (2 ...


The Possibilities Of The Video Game Exhibition, Elizabeth Legere 2762328 May 2017

The Possibilities Of The Video Game Exhibition, Elizabeth Legere 2762328

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

This paper is an examination of video games as an artistic medium, and of their current presentation in art museums like the Museum of Modern Art in New York, as well as an attempt to come up with better modes of presentation for them within a museum space. Using a general understanding of video game theory and aesthetics, it might be possible to begin to look at solutions to the issues posed by current methods of presentation and interpretation, and to examine whether video games’ complicated aesthetic and artistic importance can be better highlighted by a new mode of display ...

Visual Culture Project: Confederate War Etchings: Searching For Arms By Adalbert Johann Volck, Lynn B. Hatcher Apr 2017

Visual Culture Project: Confederate War Etchings: Searching For Arms By Adalbert Johann Volck, Lynn B. Hatcher

Student Publications

Adalbert Johann Volck’s 1861 sketch of Union soldiers, “Searching for Arms,” represents a substantial contribution to the narrative about gender relations during the American Civil War. This simple, small sketch offers the observer a window into the past. It is a collision of symbols and meaning—from gender to war to the household—all wrapped up in one image. This is a portrait sketch of a woman being invaded in her domestic, private sphere, revealing so much about gender relations during the time. The mistress herself seemed to embody a vast range of sentiments such as anger, fear, frailty ...


The Capitalist-Marxist Dichotomy Within The Hudson River School: Conceptualizing American Property Through The Career Of Worthington Whittredge (1820-1910), Astrid Tvetenstrand Mar 2017

The Capitalist-Marxist Dichotomy Within The Hudson River School: Conceptualizing American Property Through The Career Of Worthington Whittredge (1820-1910), Astrid Tvetenstrand

MA Theses

The Hudson River School artistic movement has been regarded as one of the foremost examples of American painting. These images of landscape have embodied the spirit of the United States and its perpetually changing relationship with nature. While these nineteenth-century paintings are consistently analyzed through the lenses of Romanticism and Idealism, there is a lacuna in the narrative which accentuates economic and political philosophies as important influencers of these works. The impact of capitalism and Marxism is identifiable through not only the country’s economic system, but also the nation’s artistic movements. These theories are well-defined by paintings highlighting ...

Under Water: Aesthetics And Function In Alexis Rockman's Flooded Landscape, Amy Folkedahl Meehleder Jan 2017

Under Water: Aesthetics And Function In Alexis Rockman's Flooded Landscape, Amy Folkedahl Meehleder

University of Iowa Honors Theses

This thesis is focused on Alexis Rockman’s large-scale oil painting Manifest Destiny (2004) as a case study for the role and functionality of artistic depictions of environmental catastrophe in an age of ecological crisis and activism. Many read Rockman’s paintings as works of artistic activism, advocating for the prevention of a catastrophic future, and that is in part the artist’s intention. However, Rockman himself has expressed conflicted feelings about his dual role as artist and activist, suggesting that he may not be the right person to bring an environmental message to a broader audience and acknowledging that ...


The "Postmodern Geographies" Of Frank Gehry's Los Angeles, Katherine Shearer Jan 2017

The "Postmodern Geographies" Of Frank Gehry's Los Angeles, Katherine Shearer

Scripps Senior Theses

This thesis examines the ways in which Frank Gehry’s architectural contributions to Los Angeles’ social and built environment have shaped the region’s “postmodern geographies” throughout the 20th and 21st century. Through a focused exploration of three of Gehry’s postmodernist structures in Greater Los Angeles—a house, a library, and a concert hall—this thesis analyses how Gehry and his designs reflected and affected the artistic and socio-spatial development of Los Angeles’ “decidedly postmodern landscape.”

The Denver Museum Of Nature And Science And The Denver Art Museum: A Comparative Study Of Repatriation, Natalie R. Rudd Jan 2017

The Denver Museum Of Nature And Science And The Denver Art Museum: A Comparative Study Of Repatriation, Natalie R. Rudd

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, anthropologists, archaeologists, and hobbyists removed over 200,000 human bodies and 1 million of Native American cultural items, including sacred objects, and burial objects, from Indigenous village and burial sites. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was enacted in 1990 to address and redress this human rights issue. NAGPRA requires all U.S. museums that receive federal government financial support to inventory their collections, consult with tribal nations, and return all materials that meet NAGPRA criteria, including sacred objects, burial objects, human remains, and objects of cultural patrimony to their ...

History In Collaboration: Equalizing The Arts And The Humanities In San Francisco, Nicole C. Meldahl Dec 2016

History In Collaboration: Equalizing The Arts And The Humanities In San Francisco, Nicole C. Meldahl

Master's Projects and Capstones

Historically, there has been a critical imbalance in the way history and preservation organizations are civically supported in comparison with the amount of funding that is available to arts organizations in the United States. To correct this imbalance in San Francisco, I propose the creation of a San Francisco Department of Culture that would place the San Francisco Arts Commission equally alongside a San Francisco History Commission within a department that absorbs responsibilities currently managed by other divisions with in city government, such as the Planning Department and the Office and Economic and Workforce Development. City government necessarily takes time ...


Iain Muirhead, Iain Muirhead Dec 2016

Iain Muirhead, Iain Muirhead

CGU MFA Theses

Artist IAIN MUIRHEAD seeks possibility in a world of massive change. His work cultivates instability and chases an ungrounded experience. Systemic complexity and creative destruction are characteristic. Muirhead uses paint, objects, photography, installation, and video to break apart and reconfigure form and space. Terror often looms. Entropy gives way to emergence.
