Design In The Performing Arts And Innovative Recital Models: How Design Affects Musical Aesthetics, Dena Kay Jones 2011 University of Texas at El Paso

Design In The Performing Arts And Innovative Recital Models: How Design Affects Musical Aesthetics, Dena Kay Jones

Dena Kay Jones

This sixty minute workshop will provide a brief methodology and overview of how production elements and design (stage set-up, costume/dress, instrument placement, technology usage, lighting and movement) affect musical aesthetics. The goal of the workshop is to demonstrate how when carefully considered, design enhances live musical performances. The presenter will then provide an example through a short performance of solo piano works, incorporating select techniques offered, with audience participation in critically analyzing the performance through a questionnaire and discussion scenario. As these techniques can be applied, not only in the piano performance realm, but in innumerable differing circumstances, conference attendees …

Applying Brain Research To Classroom Strategies, Diane C. Persellin, John W. Flohr 2011 Trinity University

Applying Brain Research To Classroom Strategies, Diane C. Persellin, John W. Flohr

Music Faculty Research

Research in the field of neuroscience has exploded in the past decade. The word brain appears in the title of nearly 40,000 books and CDs indicating intense interest in this area of study. What can music educators learn from recent investigations—often termed brain research—to guide music teaching and learning? The following ideas are intended to have broad applications and may inspire you to investigate this fascinating area of literature more thoroughly. While some findings are new, other studies affirm what music educators have previously found to be effective.


Exploring The Fundamental Paradox Of Being An Organizational Leader, Michael E. Cafferky 2011 Southern Adventist University

Exploring The Fundamental Paradox Of Being An Organizational Leader, Michael E. Cafferky

Faculty Works

This paper explores a fundamental, universally experienced leadership tension of caring for the needs of the individual and caring for the needs of the organization. The paper draws a distinction between the three concepts of paradox, dilemma and tradeoff. It describes the nature of the individual-community tension. It reviews the tension from the perspective of management scholarship and themes found in Biblical theology. The exploration reviews some of the issues that Christian leaders face as they attempt to manage this tension. It concludes by offering implications for leadership education.

Meriting Concern And Meriting Respect, Jon Garthoff 2011 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Meriting Concern And Meriting Respect, Jon Garthoff

Jon Garthoff

Recently there has been a somewhat surprising interest among Kantian theorists in the moral standing of animals, coupled with a no less surprising optimism among these theorists about the prospect of incorporating animal moral standing into Kantian theory without contorting its other attractive features. These theorists contend in particular that animal standing can be incorporated into Kantian moral theory without abandoning its logocentrism: the claim that everything that is valuable depends for its value on its relation to rationality. In this essay I raise doubts about the prospects for accommodating animal moral standing within a logocentric Kantianism. I argue instead …


Terrorism From Above And Below In The Age Of Globalization, Asafa Jalata 2011 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Terrorism From Above And Below In The Age Of Globalization, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

This paper explains how the intensification of globalization as the modern world system has increased the oc- currence of terrorism from above (i.e. state actors) and from below (i.e. non-state actors). We cannot adequately grasp the essence and characteristics of modern terrorism without understanding the larger cultural, social, eco- nomic, and political contexts in which it takes place. Since terrorism has been conceptualized, defined, and theo- rized by those who have contradictory interests and objectives and since the subject matter of terrorism is com- plex, difficult, and elusive, there is a wide gap in establishing a common understanding among the …

The Religification Of Pakistani-American Youth, Ameena Ghaffar-Kucher 2011 University of Pennsylvania

The Religification Of Pakistani-American Youth, Ameena Ghaffar-Kucher

GSE Faculty Research

This article describes a cultural production process called religification, in which religious affiliation, rather than race or ethnicity, has become the core category of identity for working-class Pakistani-American youth in the United States. In this dialectical process, triggered by political changes following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the Muslim identity is both thrust upon Pakistani-American youth by those who question their citizenship and embraced by the youth themselves. Specifically, the article examines the ways in which schools are sites where citizenship is both constructed and contested and the roles that peers, school personnel, families, and the youth themselves play in …


Age And Arts Participation: A Case Against Demographic Destiny, Mark J. Stern 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Age And Arts Participation: A Case Against Demographic Destiny, Mark J. Stern

Age and Arts Participation: A Case against Demographic Destiny—2011

The author used the National Endowment for the Arts' 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts and previous versions of the survey to examine changes in the role of age and cohort in arts participation since 1982. The study concluded that age and cohort had a relatively minor effect on arts participation ranging from live attendance at events to personal participation as well as literary reading and media-based participation. In short, despite concern about the graying of arts audiences, the findings suggest that age is not destiny. The ability of established or emerging arts groups to attract audiences will …


Culturally Universal Or Culturally Specific: A Comparative Study Of The Anticipated Female Leadership Styles In Taiwan And The United States, Chin-Chung Chao, Dexin Tian 2011 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Culturally Universal Or Culturally Specific: A Comparative Study Of The Anticipated Female Leadership Styles In Taiwan And The United States, Chin-Chung Chao, Dexin Tian

Communication Faculty Publications

Guided by Bass and Avolio’s leadership frameworks and Hofstede’s modified cultural dimensions, the present cross-cultural study aims to compare and explore the relationships between cultural values and anticipated female leadership styles in non-profit organizations in Taiwan and the US. Regression and t-test analyses of 307 participants in 138 Rotary Clubs in the two societies reveal two research findings. First, Rotary Club members in Taiwan have higher scores in all the cultural dimensions of collectivism, masculinity, and life-long relationships than their US counterparts. Second, transformational leadership proves to be the most anticipated leadership style among Rotary Club members in both cultures. …
