Discursive Study On Centrality Of Dutch Society, Religiosity, And Female Body: How Five Women Reflect, On Faith, On Embodiment, And On Dutchness., Mollie Rachel Garber 2010 SIT Study Abroad

Discursive Study On Centrality Of Dutch Society, Religiosity, And Female Body: How Five Women Reflect, On Faith, On Embodiment, And On Dutchness., Mollie Rachel Garber

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

My research examines the personal narratives of five (5) women living in Northern Netherlands, in and around Amsterdam. The focus of these narratives is on the diversity of national and religious backgrounds as these bear on body-image in Dutch culture. My purpose is to bridge the gap of knowledge between modern female body image, religiosity, and the conflicting messages of modernity and traditionalism. These five personal narratives begin to unpack my informants‟ “Dutch” identity, their social and personal views concerning the female body, and how religion conflicts, combines and in some cases complements the modern, secular female body message communicated ...


Arts-Based Social Inclusion: An Investigation Of Existing Assets And Innovative Strategies To Engage Immigrant Communities In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Arts-Based Social Inclusion: An Investigation Of Existing Assets And Innovative Strategies To Engage Immigrant Communities In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert

Arts-Based Social Inclusion and Immigrant Communities—2010-2011

This document reports on a study of the role that arts and culture play in Philadelphia’s migrant communities—that is, Puerto Rican and foreign-born residents and their families, including children born in the U.S. The project explored the concept of “arts-based social inclusion”—the idea that organizations and artists use culture and the arts as a means to improve the life circumstances of new Philadelphians and integrate them more fully into community life. The study confirmed that arts-based social inclusion is a productive perspective with which to make sense of this work.

The report first examines the changing ...


Espe Alegria: Cultural Advisor And Voice Of The Basques In American Radio, Erin Passehl 2010 Boise State University

Espe Alegria: Cultural Advisor And Voice Of The Basques In American Radio, Erin Passehl

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

This presentation will showcase Basque immigrant Espe Alegria (1906-1991), who spent her life preserving and promoting Basque language, culture, and identity in Boise, Idaho. Espe Alegria’s continuous work left a legacy on the American Diaspora in three areas: her work in radio broadcasting, translation and immigration services, and the arts. Espe hosted The Basque Program, a one-hour radio program that aired every week from 1955-1981. Known as the “Voice of the Basques,” Espe used her social connections to personalize the program in ways that connected with listeners in both cities and Basque-speaking sheepherders. This presentation will also look at ...


The Effect Of First Language Dialect Vowel Mergers On Second Language Perception And Production, Christine Elaine Gardner 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

The Effect Of First Language Dialect Vowel Mergers On Second Language Perception And Production, Christine Elaine Gardner

All Theses and Dissertations

Previous second language (L2) acquisition research has assumed that L2 learners from a common first language (L1) have the same problems in an L2, ignoring the potential impact of a speaker's L1 dialect on L2 acquisition. This study examines the effects of L1 dialect on the acquisition of L2 German vowels. In particular, this thesis investigates two questions: 1) Do speakers from L1 dialects with vowel mergers perceive or produce vowel contrasts in the L1 and/or L2 differently than speakers from dialect areas without the same mergers? and 2) Are subjects' patterns of L1 perception or production paralleled ...

Reconstructing Indo-European Syllabification, Andrew M. Byrd 2010 University of Kentucky

Reconstructing Indo-European Syllabification, Andrew M. Byrd

Linguistics Faculty Publications

The chief concern of this dissertation is to investigate a fundamental, yet unsolved problem within the phonology of Proto-Indo-European (PIE): the process of syllabification. I show that by analyzing the much more easily reconstructable word-edge clusters we may predict which types of consonant clusters can occur word-medially, provided that we assume a special status for certain consonants at word’s edge. Having thus analyzed the entire PIE phonological system, I believe I have developed the first working hypothesis of Indo-European syllabification, which we may now use to pre- dict which types of syllable-driven rules of consonant deletion and vowel epenthesis ...

Empoderamiento - La Cultura, Reclamando Derechos E Identidad Y Expresión Poética En El Valle Del Chota, Hannah Roth 2010 Hamilton College

Empoderamiento - La Cultura, Reclamando Derechos E Identidad Y Expresión Poética En El Valle Del Chota, Hannah Roth

Hannah Roth

Mi proyecto es una encrucijada de muchos temas: Apelar a la identidad y la historia Afroecuatoriano a través de la educación. El reconocimiento de la historia, la cultura, la identidad, y los derechos afroecuatorianos es una manera de empoderarse y esto es lo que yo observé en la familia Chalá Lara y en las comunidades en el Valle del Chota.

Yo hice una investigación sobre la identidad afroecuatoriana, el impacto de Etnoeducación, y poesía como una herramienta de empoderamiento. En las clases de Etnoeducación aprendí mucho sobre el origen y la importancia de valorar la historia afroecuatoriana. Sin embargo, vi ...

Memristics: Memristors, Again? – Part Ii, How To Transform Wired ‘Translations’ Between Crossbars Into Interactions?, Rudolf Kaehr 2010 ThinkArt Lab Glasgow

Memristics: Memristors, Again? – Part Ii, How To Transform Wired ‘Translations’ Between Crossbars Into Interactions?, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

The idea behind this patchwork of conceptual interventions is to show the possibility of a “buffer-free” modeling of the crossbar architecture for memristive systems on the base of a purely difference-theoretical approach. It is considered that on a nano-electronic level principles of interpretation appears as mechanisms of complementarity. The most basic conceptual approach to such a complementarity is introduced as an interchangeability of operators and operands of an operation. Therefore, the architecture of crossbars gets an interpretation as complementarity between crossbar functionality and “buffering” translation functionality. That is, the same matter functions as operator and at once, as operand – and ...

Memristics: Memristors, Again?, Rudolf Kaehr

Rudolf Kaehr

This collection gives first and short critical reflections on the concepts of memristics, memristors and memristive systems and the history of similar movements with an own focus on a possible interplay between memory and computing functions, at once, at the same place and time, to achieve a new kind of complementarity between computation and memory on a single chip without retarding buffering conditions.


Die Selbstkonstruktion Des Fiktiven Serienmörders Als Grundlage Der Narratologischen Grenzsetzung- Und Überschreitung, Johanna Asmuss 2010 Georgia State University

Die Selbstkonstruktion Des Fiktiven Serienmörders Als Grundlage Der Narratologischen Grenzsetzung- Und Überschreitung, Johanna Asmuss

World Languages and Cultures Theses

Die Problematik der Darstellung eines Serienmörders in der Fiktion, liegt darin, daß es bereits bei der Konstruktion eines realen Serienmörders insofern Schwierigkeiten gibt, als daß er selbst sich als jemand der Realität übergeordnet betrachtet. Damit gestaltet sich die Porträtierung des fiktiven Gegenstückes anders herum und reflektiert die Identität des wahren Mörders. Dieses wird aufgezeigt anhand der fiktiven Figuren Hans Beckert aus Fritz Langs M – Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder (1931), Jean-Baptiste Grenouille aus Patrick Süskinds Das Parfüm (1985) und Peter und Paul aus Michael Hanekes Film Funny Games (1997). Jeder dieser vier Mörder zeichnet sich dadurch aus willens zu sein ...


Revisiting Fukuyama: The End Of History, The Clash Of Civilizations, And The Age Of Empire, Chan-young Yang 2010 Wesleyan University

Revisiting Fukuyama: The End Of History, The Clash Of Civilizations, And The Age Of Empire, Chan-Young Yang

Honors Theses - All

This thesis is devoted to reassessing Fukuyama's End of History, first by correcting some common misconceptions about it, and second by reinventing it through synthesis with Huntington's Clash of Civilizations and Hardt and Negri's Empire. The first objective of this thesis is to unearth as many relevant nuances, qualifications, clarifications, and modifications the authors attach to their paradigms as possible; and to organize these findings clearly enough to articulate the internal logic of the paradigms-to iron out the conceptual wrinkles into a smooth surface. The second objective is to apply those basic findings to accommodate creative syntheses ...
