Crafts Of Color: Tupi Tapirage In Early Colonial Brazil, Amy Buono 2012 Chapman University

Crafts Of Color: Tupi Tapirage In Early Colonial Brazil, Amy Buono

Art Faculty Books and Book Chapters

"Tyrian purple. Lamp black. Lead white. Cadmium yellow. Ultramarine blue. The materiality of color, as it is often discussed, has a fixed quality. Pigments and dyes derived from many natural substances-minerals, earths, plants, and animals-have stable optic qualities. Lapis lazuli can be reliably counted upon to be blue. Dyes made from cochineal consistently fall within a certain range at the red end of the spectrum. Similarly, we might expect that the green feathers of a bird such as the Festive Parrot (Amazona festiva), after molting, would be replaced by equally green plumes. As the excerpt above suggests, from a letter ...


Kinect And 3d Gis In Archaeology, Heather Richards-Rissetto, Fabio Remondino, Jim Robersson, Jennifer von Schwerin, Giorgio Agugiaro, Gabrio Girardi 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Kinect And 3d Gis In Archaeology, Heather Richards-Rissetto, Fabio Remondino, Jim Robersson, Jennifer Von Schwerin, Giorgio Agugiaro, Gabrio Girardi

Anthropology Faculty Publications

This paper explores the potential of using Microsoft's Kinect to create a low-cost and portable system to virtually navigate, through a prototype 3D GIS, the digitally reconstructed ancient Maya city and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Copan in Honduras. The 3D GIS, named QueryArch3D, was developed as part of the MayaArch3D project (http://mayaarch3d.unm.edu), which explores the possibilities of integrating databases and 3D digital tools for research and teaching on ancient architectures and landscapes. The developed system, based on the Flexible Action and Articulated Skeleton Toolkit (FAAST), controls in a remote and touchless mode the movements in ...


La Mentira Como Una Estrategia De Cortesía Verbal: Estudio Pragmalinguístico De La Telenovela La Saga, Maria Carolina Torres 2012 Minnesota State University - Mankato

La Mentira Como Una Estrategia De Cortesía Verbal: Estudio Pragmalinguístico De La Telenovela La Saga, Maria Carolina Torres

All Theses, Dissertations, and Other Capstone Projects

Even though languages have many things in common they all differ in the way politeness is present in verbal interactions. What might be polite in certain cultures can be considered impolite in other cultures, and this is due to the relationships among the speaker and the hearer, their context, their social needs, desires, and expectations. In this thesis I will try to provide a contextual explanation for some Colombians' use of lies (as a means of politeness to deceive) in their daily life through conversations based on some of Colombia's history. Lies have become so internalized by many Colombian ...

“To Say Nothing”: Variations On The Theme Of Silence In Selected Works By Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz, Sandra Cisneros, And María Luisa Bombal, Hannah M. Frantz 2012 Gettysburg College

“To Say Nothing”: Variations On The Theme Of Silence In Selected Works By Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz, Sandra Cisneros, And María Luisa Bombal, Hannah M. Frantz

Student Publications

This paper explores the various ways in which Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s La Respuesta, Sandra Cisneros’s “Woman Hollering Creek,” and María Luisa Bombal’s “The Tree” address the theme of silence. It interrogates how the female characters in each of these works are silenced as well as their responses to that oppression. Meaning is subjective, so writing is a safe outlet for the oppressed. These works each identify an oppressor, either a husband or the male dominated church, as well as an oppressed individual, who is the female lead. In La Respuesta, the Catholic church, and ...


Afro-Brazilian Religious Suppression In 1920s And 1930s Rio De Janeiro, Brittney Teal-Cribbs 2012 Western Oregon University

Afro-Brazilian Religious Suppression In 1920s And 1930s Rio De Janeiro, Brittney Teal-Cribbs

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (History)

This paper shows how academics and the Brazilian government suppressed Afro-Brazilian religions in Rio de Janeiro in the 1930s. Both United States and French anthropologists had a role in developing attitudes toward Afro-Brazilian religions. They corresponded with race attitudes about whitening the Brazilian population. Whereas prominent United States anthropologists often evidenced negative attitudes toward these religions, the French presented a much more positive perspective. These new attitudes created an environment for greater tolerance to religions formerly persecuted.


The Cuban Ripple Effect: Writing Cubanidad In The Diaspora, Isabel Valiela 2012 Gettysburg College

The Cuban Ripple Effect: Writing Cubanidad In The Diaspora, Isabel Valiela

Spanish Faculty Publications

The article, inspired by Antonio Benítez-Rojo’s postmodern work on Caribbean identity, The Repeating Island, applies the metaphor of a ripple effect to the writers of the Cuban Diaspora. These are writers who have left Cuba after the Cuban Revolution, but who belong to different generations, have left at different times, have established themselves in different countries, and write in different languages on themes unique to their particular experiences and interests. Yet, they share a Cuban identity based on the experience of displacement from their place of origin. Their collective trajectory resembles the ripple effect in water, which expands and ...
