Dreadful Sorry: Spots Of Passion And The Memory Of Being Human In Kaufman’S “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” And Pope’S ‘Eloisa To Abelard’, June-Ann Greeley 2010 Sacred Heart University

Dreadful Sorry: Spots Of Passion And The Memory Of Being Human In Kaufman’S “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” And Pope’S ‘Eloisa To Abelard’, June-Ann Greeley

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

Memory is a journey of infinite possibility, a continuous passage through time and sense that offers each person an opportunity not merely to recall and to reflect on former occasions and previous experiences, but to reconsider and to reexamine the past as a guide, as instruction, for healthy individuation. Memory, then, can be understood to be the aggregate of experiential and emotional recollection that frames the essential ground in forming and realizing individual identity. Both Alexander Pope in his poem “Eloisa to Abelard” and Michel Gondry/Charlie Kaufman in the film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” offer portraits of ...


Research Report: Violence In Children’S Films, Ann Wheeler, Kristyn Birkeland 2010 Old Dominion University

Research Report: Violence In Children’S Films, Ann Wheeler, Kristyn Birkeland

OUR Journal: ODU Undergraduate Research Journal

The goal of this research is to find out if violence in children’s films has increased within the past five decades. In order to achieve this goal, 22 children’s films were given multiple reviews by college students, who carefully analyzed them using the same questionnaire. Using a simple random sampling method of research, films were chosen within clusters of decades and were analyzed using variables that depict violence. After collectively studying the results of the twenty-two children’s films, we discovered that violence in children’s films has increased over the past five decades.


Remember The Titans, Historical Fact Or Fiction?, Amy S. Tate 2010 Old Dominion University

Remember The Titans, Historical Fact Or Fiction?, Amy S. Tate

OUR Journal: ODU Undergraduate Research Journal

In the late 1990s, screen writer Gregory A. Howard wrote a screen play called Remember the Titans, based on the true story of T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Pictures bought the script based on the fact that it is a true story, but much of the film‟s content is fictional. Gregory Howard admitted to ESPN writer Jeff Merron that “he made some big assumptions when writing his script” (qtd. in Merron 5). Though the film is not entirely historically accurate, it is successful because it appeals to Americans through its intense ...


Para-Romantic Love And Para-Friendships: Development And Assessment Of A Multiple-Parasocial Relationships Scale, Riva Tukachinsky 2010 Chapman University

Para-Romantic Love And Para-Friendships: Development And Assessment Of A Multiple-Parasocial Relationships Scale, Riva Tukachinsky

Communication Faculty Articles and Research

Parasocial-relationships (PSR) are viewers' imaginary relationships with media personae. Despite the growing body of research on PSR, the field is still lacking a clear conceptualization and precise measure of this phenomenon. The present study suggests a novel theorization of PSR as para-friendship and para-love. Study 1 demonstrates construct validity of a new Multiple-PSR scale using the logic of a multi-trait multi-method approach. Study 2 replicates the factorial solution using confirmatory factor analysis. Finally, Study 3 provides evidence for the criterion validity of the scales. Together, these findings suggest that PSR encompass several types of relationships that might mediate different media ...


12 Eylül'Ü Konu Alan Filmlerde Karşı Anlatı Olarak Ses Ve Hafıza, Pelin Basci 2010 Portland State University

12 Eylül'Ü Konu Alan Filmlerde Karşı Anlatı Olarak Ses Ve Hafıza, Pelin Basci

World Languages and Literatures Faculty Publications and Presentations

During the last three decades, the 1980 military coup has acquired increased visibility in Turkish cinema. Films that treat the 1980 coup record two aspects of it as parts of a cinematographic narrative: some films explore the socio-political reasons behind the coup by capturing the period preceding the takeover, while others explore the human impact of the coup by capturing the period following it. Films in both groups interrupt the silence maintained by the official narrative about the coup, critique the justifications for military intervention, and expose the violence that was perpetrated in the name of the state.

Making The Student Film, Rance Collins 2010 Ouachita Baptist University

Making The Student Film, Rance Collins

Honors Theses

Every filmmaker creates their own unique path to producing motion pictures. Some start out at the bottom of the chain, getting cups of water for the director while learning the craft. Steven Spielberg started as a boy by filming a nine-minute feature with a 8mm camera that earned him a merit badge in Boy Scouts (Steven). I started learning the craft at the early age of eleven, and have since completed seven films, a dozen episodes of a sitcom, and countless news stories, wedding ceremonies, senior videos, and recruiting films. When I enrolled at Ouachita four years ago I knew ...


Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms 2010 Iowa State University

Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms

English Publications

What is the relationship between medium and genre in learning and development? North American genre theory suggests following Miller (1984, 1994) that genre is social action. Genres evoke expectations, direct attention, guide action and suggest ‘what motives we may have.’ Yet the relationship between media and genres, as Miller suggested at SIGET IV (1997), is complex. The blog, for example, quickly evolved from being one genre to many genres and, today, might be said to be a medium more than a genre. Bazerman at SIGET IV (2007) argued, following Vygotsky (1997), that genres −particularly written genres− ‘provide highly differentiated, scaffolded ...

British Cinema And The Manipulation Of Public Opinion During The Inter-War Years, Merle Kenneth Peirce 2010 Rhode Island College

British Cinema And The Manipulation Of Public Opinion During The Inter-War Years, Merle Kenneth Peirce

Master's Theses, Dissertations, Graduate Research and Major Papers Overview

Little notice has been paid to the British film industry and the way in which it was able to effect changes during the inter-war years, in particular 1930-1939. Members of the Foreign office and the Special Intelligence Services were able, through the subtle choice and influencing of specific filmic texts, to bring the British populace from a pacifist attitude, to one of resigned acceptance of the inevitability of war and the need for re-armament in the face of a growing German menace.


Red Soil And The Silver Screen: The Evolution Of Realism In American World War Two Films, Paul W. Ossou 2010 Seton Hall University

Red Soil And The Silver Screen: The Evolution Of Realism In American World War Two Films, Paul W. Ossou

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

The purpose of this thesis is to determine if there has been any change in the incorporation of realism in World War II films since the end of the war. A content analysis was preformed on eight films that cover a range of years, to monitor the change in certain key aspects of realism. The films spanned 1955 to 2007. The key factors revolved around the plot, characters and depiction of combat. This thesis then offers an analysis of the changes and what effect those changes have had on World War II combat films.

The Warrior Women Of Transnational Cinema: Gender And Race In Hollywood And Hong Kong Action Movies, Lisa Funnell 2010 Wilfrid Laurier University

The Warrior Women Of Transnational Cinema: Gender And Race In Hollywood And Hong Kong Action Movies, Lisa Funnell

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

In The Warrior Women of Transnational Cinema, I consider the significance of transnational Asian action women in the post-1997 Hong Kong cinema; more specifically, I explore how Pan-Asian (e.g. Michelle Yeoh, Pei Pei Cheng, Ziyi Zhang), Asian American (Lucy Liu, Maggie Q, Marsha Yuen), and Asian Canadian (e.g. Francoise Yip, Charlene Choi, Kristy Yang) warrior women function as a source of transnational female identity for local, Pan-Asian (i.e. East and Southeast Asian), and diasporic Asian audiences. I argue that the post-1997 Hong Kong cinema—and not Hollywood—has offered space for the development of Pan-Asian and Asian ...

O artigo aborda quatro filmes produzidos e estreados no século XXI, analisando os seus diferentes modos de representação da ditadura e as respostas que a câmara convertida em historiadora dá ao problema da construção da memória.


“The Superman Exists, And He Is American”: Graphic Novel Film Adaptations And Masculine Heroism In Post-9/11 Culture, Richard Charles Abate 2010 Connecticut College

“The Superman Exists, And He Is American”: Graphic Novel Film Adaptations And Masculine Heroism In Post-9/11 Culture, Richard Charles Abate

Film Studies Honors Papers

This senior thesis paper discusses the representation of masculinity and heroism in post-9/11 culture and how filmic adaptations of graphic novels have helped to shape these representations. Following the events of September 11th, the cultural definitions of the masculine hero shifted, allowing the average, working class man to become the embodiment of American heroism. This new understanding of the American hero was marked by sexual difference and a redefinition of the masculine “hard-body” that allowed for the possession of a heroic masculine identity to appear more attainable. This thesis primarily examines the filmic adaptations of works by Frank Miller ...


What Are You Looking At? : Gazing At The Non-Western Other, Annika Schaffroth 2010 University of Redlands

What Are You Looking At? : Gazing At The Non-Western Other, Annika Schaffroth

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This paper will investigate three images which reflect colonial and post-colonial attitudes: Women of Algiers in Their Apartment by Eugene Delacroix, 1834; Harem Fantasy by Antoin Sevruguin, ca 1900; and Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry, 1985. These representations of the non-Western Other exhibit strong similarities despite the spans of time between them. The link that an artistic representation claims to reality makes it much easier for viewers to overlook their complicity in visual (as preceded by cultural, economic, military, etc) conquest and confinement. However, upon further examination, these images can complicate preexisting relationships, despite the West's continued prescription to ...
