Adenine Uracil Guanine: An Exploration Of Certainty In Science, Alicia M. Hendrix 2012 Scripps College

Adenine Uracil Guanine: An Exploration Of Certainty In Science, Alicia M. Hendrix

Scripps Senior Theses

Collaboration and communication between conventionally diverse fields can allow for deeper understanding and clearer analysis of the concepts within each. Two fields traditionally seen as dichotomous are those of art and science. Historically they approach problems in opposite ways. However, I would argue that they in fact investigate very similar questions, hoping to discover the ways that the world works. It makes sense, then, that historically these fields have sometimes been able to interact. Artists have engaged with science by creating work through scientific processes including crossbreeding flowers, genetically modifying organisms, and sequencing nucleotides. Others have referenced scientific ideas, like ...

The Novel As Drama: Staging Theatrical Aspects Of The Narrative In Jane Austen’S Mansfield Park, Ann M. Shanahan 2012 Loyola University Chicago

The Novel As Drama: Staging Theatrical Aspects Of The Narrative In Jane Austen’S Mansfield Park, Ann M. Shanahan

Department of Fine & Performing Arts: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Of Jane Austen's full-length novels, Mansfield Park deals most directly with theatrical subjects, yet it is the least frequently adapted for the stage. Plots, themes, and characters in the novel echo those of the popular late eighteenth century play Lovers' Vows, and the first volume includes a performance of that play as part of a "home theatrical." ·In 2011, I completed a workshop adaptation and staging of Mansfield Park. I used the method of Chamber Theatre founded by Robert Breen, a technique of literary adaptation that retains the narrative voice by use of an embodied narrative and assignment of ...


Permitted Memories And Ornamentation, Salima Mohammed Hasan 2012 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Permitted Memories And Ornamentation, Salima Mohammed Hasan

LSU Master's Theses

Hasan, Salima, B.F.A, University of South Alabama, 2009. Master of fine Art, spring commencement, 2012. Major: Studio Art, painting and drawing. Permitted Memories and Ornamentation. Thesis directed by professor Denyce Celentano. Pages in thesis, 18, word in abstract, 116. ABSTRACT My thesis project is a collection of paintings and drawings that juxtapose iconic Islamic ornamentation with portraits of members of my family, both living and dead. The creation of images of living beings, particularly people, has long been banned in Islam and, as a result, the faces of my loved ones have long lived only in my memory ...


"Speak To Me In Vernacular, Doctor": Translating And Adapting Tirso De Molina's El Amor Médico For The Stage, Sarah A. Brew 2012 University of Massachusetts Amherst

"Speak To Me In Vernacular, Doctor": Translating And Adapting Tirso De Molina's El Amor Médico For The Stage, Sarah A. Brew

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Considered one of the greatest playwrights of the Spanish Golden Age, Tirso de Molina (1580?-1648) lived something of a double life, alternating—much like the characters in his plays—between two separate and often conflicting lives. Though Tirso, whose real name was Gabriel Téllez, spent the greater portion of his life in the church as a Mercedarian friar, his dramatic output as a playwright was prodigious in scope. Fewer than 90 of his plays survive today, and only a handful have been translated into English. This M.F.A. thesis therefore presents the first-ever English-language translation and adaptation of ...


In The Colonies, Nicolas A. Sansone 2012 University of Massachusetts Amherst

In The Colonies, Nicolas A. Sansone

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

In the Colonies is a work of fiction. It tells the story of a young German harpist, C––, who is seduced into a life of luxury by a venal American, Sansone. She is invited to spend a year at his artists’ colony, where she works on composing a transcendent work of music and, in the process, realizes that she has lost sight of the material realities around her. Ultimately, she comes to realize that her single-minded pursuit of an ideal Beauty has driven her away from the very ideals she aspired to in the first place.


The Middle Of Everything, Kathryn Jennifer Sukalich 2012 Iowa State University

The Middle Of Everything, Kathryn Jennifer Sukalich

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Middle of Everything is a collection of personal essays about language, place, and memory. The thesis is framed by stories of Alzheimer's disease and divided into sections that travel to different places to consider what memories, stories, and people are important. The settings of the essays range from Wisconsin to Spain, from Iowa to Mexico, and the narrator explores the relationship between people and places, the way place influences individuals and the way individuals impact place. The collection is also a personal journey about learning to deal with losses and about learning what home means. It explores personal ...


Inside And Outside, Joshua Harry George 2012 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Inside And Outside, Joshua Harry George

LSU Master's Theses

The boxing paintings and drawings are not about fighting as much as they are about the fighter’s existence. Many of the images show the boxer training or in an isolated environment in order to show how methodical their lives become. I see boxers as sacrificial athletes, not only because their health is at risk, but also because they must separate themselves from loved ones during training, as well as abstain from certain foods in order to maintain a certain weight. Every boxer is an underdog, in a sense. They are all at risk of losing something, whether it is ...


Eight Thousand Daughters Woven Into Bayou Birds, Megan Marie Singleton 2012 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Eight Thousand Daughters Woven Into Bayou Birds, Megan Marie Singleton

LSU Master's Theses

Over the course of the last year I have spent nearly every weekend investigating this aquatic landscape by canoe, deciphering the differences between native and invasive flora and fauna. I am interested in ways that art can address the natural world. My thesis exhibition, Eight Thousand Daughters Woven into Bayou Braids, depicts and interprets the Louisiana landscape, exploring the destructive beauty and materiality of invasive aquatic plants.

The Evolution Of The Modern Book: Understanding The Future Of The Printed Word In The Context Of Fine Printing Presses And Artist’S Books, Elisabeth Schyberg 2012 University of Puget Sound

The Evolution Of The Modern Book: Understanding The Future Of The Printed Word In The Context Of Fine Printing Presses And Artist’S Books, Elisabeth Schyberg

Summer Research

In this digital age, it is easy to predict that print is dead and soon people will be reading nothing but e-books. I wanted to explore the world of fine printing presses and artists’ books, where print is still very much alive, to see what this sector thinks about the future of the physical book. I visited several fine presses and book artists in Northern California and England, as well as some libraries with unique examples of these kinds of books. I read books and articles about the place of the physical book in today’s society. My initial thought ...


Growth / Decay, Yuri Kahan 2012 University of Puget Sound

Growth / Decay, Yuri Kahan

Summer Research

With or without organic matter, the Earth will continue to participate in its celestial dance with the rest of the Universe. For my work this fact is paramount. I am envisioning the Earth as a post-organic realm, as a space that will remain far beyond human existence. The Earth’s turning is not dependent on humanity, on flora or fauna, on any single living thing that inhabits it’s crust. This is an element of ‘our’ planet that I think is often ignored, forgotten, or simply unknown or not thought by most. As such, these pieces are about the purity ...


Turn-On's And Edible Friends: An Imaginal Menagerie, Matthew Ryan Henderson 2012 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Turn-On's And Edible Friends: An Imaginal Menagerie, Matthew Ryan Henderson

LSU Master's Theses

Turn-on’s and Edible Friends explores alternative sexual behavior. Societal standards have an overwhelming interest in imposing judgment upon sexual identity. The imagery is influenced by taboo and peculiar sexual fetishes. Animal personifications of the fetish are used as satire to detach the viewer from the action, and also as a metaphor for the reins with which the general public takes control over our private relationships. Thus the work becomes confrontational with the viewer and forces them to question their perceptions and comforts about sexual identity.


North To South, Mercedes Jelinek 2012 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

North To South, Mercedes Jelinek

LSU Master's Theses

North to South is a series of photographs that reflect ideas of home and community. The images and video components depict portraits of my neighbors taken over the last two years. The individuals I photographed were crucial to my process, for with their help and a simple homemade photo booth, I found a “home” here in the south.
