The Dynamic Ecology Of The Writing Process And Agency: A Corpus-Based Comparative Case Study Of Stancetaking Among Native Speakers And Non-Native Speakers Of English In First-Year Composition Conferences, Kirk Marshall Wilkins Jan 2015

The Dynamic Ecology Of The Writing Process And Agency: A Corpus-Based Comparative Case Study Of Stancetaking Among Native Speakers And Non-Native Speakers Of English In First-Year Composition Conferences, Kirk Marshall Wilkins

Kirk Marshall Wilkins

While previous research into writing conferences and tutorials has found that sessions with non-native speakers of English (NNSs) differ from those with native speakers of English (NSs), these studies using conversation analysis have tended to approach conferences through more qualitative methodologies. This thesis builds upon and enriches these previous studies by incorporating more of a quantitative analysis through the use of corpus linguistics to systematically analyze the frequency with which particular grammatical devices that express the attitude of the speaker, otherwise known as stance, and power are used and how these frequencies may vary within a specific set of NS …

Some Observations On The Weddings Of Tokugawa Shogun’S Daughters – Part 2, Cecilia Seigle Jan 2012

Some Observations On The Weddings Of Tokugawa Shogun’S Daughters – Part 2, Cecilia Seigle

Cecilia S Seigle Ph.D.

This section discusses the complex psychological and philosophical reason for Shogun Yoshimune’s contrasting handlings of his two adopted daughters’ and his favorite son’s weddings. In my thinking, Yoshimune lived up to his philosophical principles by the illogical, puzzling treatment of the three weddings. We can witness the manifestation of his modest and frugal personality inherited from his ancestor Ieyasu, cohabiting with his strong but unconventional sense of obligation and respect for his benefactor Tsunayoshi.

Open Records, Open Possibilities, John Mark Ockerbloom Jan 2009

Open Records, Open Possibilities, John Mark Ockerbloom

John Mark Ockerbloom

Slides and prepared remarks for an ALA panel discussion on sharing bibliographic records and OCLC's proposed WorldCat policy.

I give some examples of useful innovations that can advance the mission of libraries when records are openly shared, and argue that more restrictive policies like OCLC's proposal can cost the library community dearly in lost opportunities. I show how the open source community has alternative ways to license work openly, and to cover costs. Finally, I argue that, even if WorldCat is not prepared to open access to all its bibliographic records, the members of the cooperative should be empowered to …

Watching Our Backs: Community Verification Of Digital Preservation Systems, John Mark Ockerbloom Nov 2008

Watching Our Backs: Community Verification Of Digital Preservation Systems, John Mark Ockerbloom

John Mark Ockerbloom

Librarians and faculty agree that information preservation is one of the essential roles of libraries. Yet, as the information we manage increasingly becomes digital, we have to rely on new methods of preserving this information that have not been fully tested. While developing and auditing for best practices is important, we must also verify that preservation systems actually perform as we hope they will, preferably long before we have to fall back on them.

In this talk, I will show ways in which this verification can be done now, by the community, with reasonable cost and demonstrable efficacy. Specifically, I …


Polar Bear Population Forecasts: A Public-Policy Forecasting Audit, J. Scott Armstrong, Kesten C. Green, Willie Soon Jun 2008

Polar Bear Population Forecasts: A Public-Policy Forecasting Audit, J. Scott Armstrong, Kesten C. Green, Willie Soon

J. Scott Armstrong

Calls to list polar bears as a threatened species under the United States Endangered Species Act are based on forecasts of substantial long-term declines in their population. Nine government reports were written to help U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managers decide whether or not to list polar bears as a threatened species. We assessed these reports based on evidence-based (scientific) forecasting principles. None of the reports referred to sources of scientific forecasting methodology. Of the nine, Amstrup, Marcot, and Douglas (2007) and Hunter et al. (2007) were the most relevant to the listing decision, and we devoted our attention to …


High Quality Discovery In A Web 2.0 World: Architectures For Next Generation Catalogs, John Mark Ockerbloom May 2008

High Quality Discovery In A Web 2.0 World: Architectures For Next Generation Catalogs, John Mark Ockerbloom

John Mark Ockerbloom

Issues of information and systems architecture underly many of the current debates over the future of cataloging. This talk discusses some ways in which the architecture of the catalog is being redesigned to combine the rich information architecture of library metadata with the robust systems architecture of many Web-based discovery systems. I will show "subject map" discovery systems that better exploit the relationships in complex ontologies like LCSH, and discuss a Digital Library Federation initiative to promote standards supporting interoperability between discovery systems and ILS data and services. I will also touch on the role of networked architectures in improving …


Language Socialization And The Linguistic Anthropology Of Education, Betsy R. Rymes Jan 2008

Language Socialization And The Linguistic Anthropology Of Education, Betsy R. Rymes

Betsy Rymes

To understand how the field of Language Socialization has developed with respect to the Linguistic Anthropology of Education, this entry traces the connections between these categorizations of research from their current coinage to their roots in linguistic anthropology as a whole.


The Relationship Between Mass Media And Classroom Discourse, Betsy R. Rymes Jan 2008

The Relationship Between Mass Media And Classroom Discourse, Betsy R. Rymes

Betsy Rymes

In this paper, I illustrate the cyclical proliferation of mass-mediated communicative repertoires through small-scale mechanisms of classroom discourse. I draw on examples of current advertising, classroom discourse data from diverse studies, my own study of an elementary ESL group’s interaction, and mass mediated representations of classroom discourse on websites and TV shows about school to illustrate the relationship between mass media and classroom discourse. I analyze how mass-mediated metadiscourse creates new participation frameworks in classrooms that propel small-scale changes in classroom discourse and potentially facilitate the integration of new voices. Finally I discuss the implications of this analysis for how …

The Ftc And Consumer Privacy In The Coming Decade, Joseph Turow, Chris Jay Hoofnagle, Deirdre K. Mulligan, Nathaniel Good, Jens Grossklags Nov 2006

The Ftc And Consumer Privacy In The Coming Decade, Joseph Turow, Chris Jay Hoofnagle, Deirdre K. Mulligan, Nathaniel Good, Jens Grossklags

Joseph Turow

Large majorities of consumers believe that the term "privacy policy" conveys a baseline level of information practices that protect their privacy. In short, "privacy," like "free" before it, has taken on normative meaning in the marketplace. When consumers see the term "privacy policy," they believe that their privacy will be protected in specific ways. In particular, when consumers see the "privacy policy" they assume that a web site will not share their personal information. Of course, this is not the case. Privacy policies today come in all different flavors. Some …

Periodical Use In A University Music Library: A Citation Study Of Theses And Dissertations Submitted To The Indiana University School Of Music From 1975-1980, Richard Griscom Jan 1983

Periodical Use In A University Music Library: A Citation Study Of Theses And Dissertations Submitted To The Indiana University School Of Music From 1975-1980, Richard Griscom

Richard Griscom

In an effort to measure in-house use of music periodicals, a citation study based on bibliographies in theses and dissertations was conducted at the Indiana University Music Library. A total of 256 titles were cited, but only 30% were cited more than once. While the periodical literature cited by musicologists has a low rate of obsolescence, the periodicals cited by theorists and educators becomes obsolete at a rapid rate, making the rate of obsolescence for the field as a whole, fairly high, unlike other subject areas in the humanities.
