Hemispheric And Continental Scale Patterns Of Similarity In Mountain Tundra, George P Malanson, Risto Virtanen, Andrea J Britton, Borja Jiménez-Alfaro, Hong Qian, Alessandro Petraglia, Marcello Tomaselli, David Cooper, Christian Damm, Richard H Pemble, Robert B Brett Jul 2019

Hemispheric And Continental Scale Patterns Of Similarity In Mountain Tundra, George P Malanson, Risto Virtanen, Andrea J Britton, Borja Jiménez-Alfaro, Hong Qian, Alessandro Petraglia, Marcello Tomaselli, David Cooper, Christian Damm, Richard H Pemble, Robert B Brett

Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences Publications

Understanding the full range of biodiversity patterns from local to global scales, through the study of the drivers of multiscale plant community composition and diversity, is a current goal of biogeography. A synthetic understanding of to what extent vegetation compositional patterns are produced by biotic factors, geography or climate and how these patterns vary across scales is needed. This lack hinders prediction of the effects of climate change in global vegetation. Variation in community composition is examined in relation to climatic difference and geographic distance at hemispheric and continental scales. Vascular plants and bryophytes in 13 mountain regions were analyzed ...


Salient Ballot Measures And The Millennial Vote, Scott J. Lacombe, Courtney Juelich Jun 2019

Salient Ballot Measures And The Millennial Vote, Scott J. Lacombe, Courtney Juelich

Department of Political Science Publications

We explore the relationship between ballot measures on issues salient to Millennials and their turnout in presidential and midterm elections. Both scholars and observers in the media have worried about decreasing levels of citizen participation, particularly among young voters. We demonstrate that one way to engage Millennials into traditional forms of political participation is through ballot measures that focus on issues salient to their generation (marijuana liberalization and higher education reform). We show that not only do these measures increase Millennial voting, but they erase difference in turnout levels between Millennials and older generations. This effect is primarily concentrated in ...


Public Support For Higher Taxes On The Wealthy: California’S Proposition 30, Caroline J. Tolbert, Christopher Witko, Cary Wolbers Jun 2019

Public Support For Higher Taxes On The Wealthy: California’S Proposition 30, Caroline J. Tolbert, Christopher Witko, Cary Wolbers

Department of Political Science Publications

It has long been argued that growing inequality would lead to growing demands for redistribution, especially from less affluent individuals who would benefit most from redistribution. Yet, in many countries we have not seen tax increases and even when ballot initiatives allow individuals to directly vote to raise taxes on the wealthy they decline to do so. This raises the question of how economic self-interest shapes voting on tax proposals, and what factors may weaken the links between economic self-interest and tax policy preferences. In the U.S. context partisanship is a factor that has a major influence on attitudes ...


Reinventing An Online Business Research Course, Willow E. Fuchs Jun 2019

Reinventing An Online Business Research Course, Willow E. Fuchs

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

Instructors often think that an online course need not be more than recording lectures, moving content online, and doing exactly what one does in an in-person class. In fact, creating an engaging online course means adapting to change and considering the unique perspective of students in an online environment. In the fall of 2018 I participated in an intensive 8 week faculty development program, Design4Online, run by the University of Iowa’s Distance and Online Education instructional designers. This hybrid program, which had us meet in-person as well as complete additional online course tasks, took us through a number of ...


Quick Understanding Our Engineering Faculty Research Needs Using Topic Modeling, Qianjin Zhang, Kari Kozak Jun 2019

Quick Understanding Our Engineering Faculty Research Needs Using Topic Modeling, Qianjin Zhang, Kari Kozak

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

As engineering librarians, we recognize that understanding our faculty research needs is an ongoing endeavor. It is a continuing learning process throughout our time serving engineering faculty with diverse research interests. However, the time-intensive learning process may not efficiently help engineering librarians quickly develop an overall view of the changing and evolving departments. It’s also challenging for early-career librarians who are new to engineering librarianship or do not have relevant subject background.

In order to tackle the problem, the authors explored research topics of our faculty’s work using a topic modeling technique called Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) which ...

Wisdom (Hikmah) As Perceived By Iranian Muslim Scholars: Reflections On Ibn Sina, Ghazali, And Suhrawardi, Leyla H. Tajer, Amir H. Zekrgoo Apr 2019

Wisdom (Hikmah) As Perceived By Iranian Muslim Scholars: Reflections On Ibn Sina, Ghazali, And Suhrawardi, Leyla H. Tajer, Amir H. Zekrgoo

Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Multidisciplinary Studies

The evolution of the concept of spiritual/religious wisdom (ḥikamt) by the Iranian Muslim philosophers from the 10th to 12th century, may be studied under three main trends namely Mashā’i (Peripatetic), Kalām (theology), and Ishrāq (Illumination). Despite the correlation among these trends each of them grew independently. Among the three, the Hikmat-i Ishrāq (Illumination Wisdom) which is also known as Ḥikamt-i Dhawqi (Intuitive Wisdom) of Shahab al-Din Suhrawardi (1153-1191) found a special place as it tended to bring together the philosophical and theological aspects of wisdom. This survey would address the development of ikmat (wisdom) among ...

Quotidian Science Fiction: Posthuman Dreams Of Emancipation, Jonathan Hay Apr 2019

Quotidian Science Fiction: Posthuman Dreams Of Emancipation, Jonathan Hay

Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies

This article argues that Science Fiction is a posthuman art form, whose texts posit a utopian dream which emphasises that the process of becoming posthuman is both incremental, and conditional upon the equitable cultural, social, and environmental evolution of our societies. The genre provides a transient dreamscape for visitation by the (post)human mind, by which the reader gains an expanded perception of not only their own empirical environment, but also of posthuman possibility. This posthuman dream however, is not a simply literalised by SF’s estranging narrative strategy, but rather is located in the intersection between the SF narrative ...

Racialized Appetites In Four Girls At Cottage City, Malinda Russell's Domestic Cook Book, And Southern Soufflé, Molly Mann Apr 2019

Racialized Appetites In Four Girls At Cottage City, Malinda Russell's Domestic Cook Book, And Southern Soufflé, Molly Mann

Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies

Emma Dunham Kelley-Hawkins’ novel Four Girls at Cottage City (1898), Malinda Russell’s Domestic Cook Book: Containing a Careful Selection of Useful Receipts for the Kitchen (1866), and Erika Council’s food blog Southern Soufflé (2012-present) are texts that differ in form, genre, purpose, and period. Read together, these works, all three of which have received relatively little critical attention, however, help piece together a historical and cultural framework for contemporary views of Black women, food and professionalized labor, a subject which itself has received less attention, critically, than white women and the professionalism of their domestic labors. The three ...

Jane Austen’S Appetite For Stewardship, Hospitality, And Paternalism: Food In Pride And Prejudice, Randi Pahlau Apr 2019

Jane Austen’S Appetite For Stewardship, Hospitality, And Paternalism: Food In Pride And Prejudice, Randi Pahlau

Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies

A consideration of food and the appetite it satiates in Jane Austen’s most popular novel Pride and Prejudice must combine two hegemonies of her time: clerical teachings on biblical dominion and hospitality combined in the idealistic country estate of Pemberley. This paper examines Christian stewardship and biblical hospitality as disseminated by clergy when Austen was writing and applies them to demonstrate Austen’s ideal position on the appetite for food as embodied in Darcy, Elizabeth, and Pemberley, contrasted with the flawed appetites demonstrated by Mr. Hurst, Mrs. Bennet, and Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
