The Local History Of An International Type: The Structural Panel Building In Czechoslovakia, Kimberly Elman Zarecor 2010 Iowa State University

The Local History Of An International Type: The Structural Panel Building In Czechoslovakia, Kimberly Elman Zarecor

Architecture Publications

Focusing on the state-run system of architectural offices as a mediator between politics and practice, this article considers how the 1948 Communist Party takeover of Czechoslovakia affected architectural practice and the establishment of housing types in the early 1950s. The legacy of a strong local construction industry before 1948 was critical to these developments. At the new Institute of Prefabricated Buildings, created in 1952, architects and engineers continued earlier research on prefabricated construction technologies. Through this work, the Czechoslovak government and its architectural administration soon concluded that its best long-term option for solving the country's housing crisis was the ...


Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović 2010 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

From the 9th-century conversion to Christianity until the 11th century, the ecclesiastical art and architecture of the Serbs, both Orthodox and Roman Catholic, shared the concurrent accomplishments of the Croats, Latins, and Greeks. All of these groups cohabited the territories between the rivers Bojana and Cetina in Duklja (Zeta, Montenegro), Zahumlje (Herzegovina), and their littoral. Wall *paintings, donor *portraits, inscriptions in Greek and Latin, and architectural *sculpture on *windows, portals, capitals, *chancel screens, *ciboria, and baptismal fonts, reveal influences of pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, and Byzantine models. Instructive examples come from the 9th-century *rotunda of St. Triphon at Kotor (809?), replaced by ...

Rescripting Stalinist Masculinity: Contesting The Male Ideal In Soviet Film And Society, 1953-1968, Marko Dumancic

Marko Dumančić

This dissertation traces the evolution of a new type of cinematic masculinity in the
fifteen years following Joseph Stalin’s death and examines how controversial post-Stalinist
movie heroes became a battleground for the country’s postwar values and ideals. During the
1950s and 1960s, postwar Soviet leadership faced the kinds of sociopolitical ruptures that
were also evident on the other side of the Iron Curtain; the Communist Party leadership
struggled to moderate the combined destabilizing effect of consumerism, a recalcitrant youth
(sub)culture, and Cold War anxieties. Nowhere was the angst of the postwar period more
obvious than in the ...
