Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney Feb 2013

Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Practical experiences of traditional and emerging processes in creative pattern cutting can be successfully documented and promoted through case study. Case study is a comprehensive research strategy for investigating an empirical topic by following a set of pre-specified procedures (Yin, 1994). The case study method is different from research methods such as experiments and surveys where statistical generalization is used to extend the results to a larger population. In the case study method, analytic generalization is used to generalize from the case study to theoretical propositions. This paper explores reasons and solutions for undocumented pattern cutting knowledge. Pattern cutters mentally ...

Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, Carl A. Rogers Jan 2007

Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, Carl A. Rogers

Landscape Architecture Publications

Design studio education separates design and visual representation as individual subjects requiring different educational objectives. Each subject employs distinct skills such as line and value for visual representation or form and experience for design. The potential of design decisions should be based upon integration creative ideas with observation and representation skills. This paper describes a drawing process conceived by the author which considers issues of drawing including i) the pictorial function of drawing, ii) the ability of drawing to illuminate ideas, and iii) the relationship between seeing and imagining when drawing. The goal is to consider the intrinsic relationship between ...

Simple backing, tear mending, tape removal, and re-housing procedures were also addressed. Proper selection of treatments was encouraged by stressing that students should begin with more innocuous treatment options before implementing more aggressive and invasive options. Several treatment options were developed to deal with specific situations common to the field of questioned documents. These include: a methyl cellulose backing technique, and a modified sink mat.

Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher Jan 2006

Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher

Special Collections Publications and Papers

Providing proper housing and storage of archival materials is a primary goal undertaken in all archives. Standard containers for manuscripts, documents, photographs, three-dimensional objects, and other archival materials are readily available. However, for nonstandard, unusual, or complex objects that require additional support, developing housing or specialized storage can be problematic. Thinking creatively about housing and storage of archival materials increases the wealth of housing options available to archives even when a conservator is not available. Archivists can incorporate premade and traditional archival supplies in innovative ways to create structures that store and protect, while at the same time, limit handling ...

Book Review: España: Temas De Cultura Y Civilización (Review), Chad M. Gasta Jan 2004

Book Review: España: Temas De Cultura Y Civilización (Review), Chad M. Gasta

World Languages and Cultures Publications

A Spanish civilization and culture text for American undergraduates is difficult to write. No particular approach will appeal to all audiences whether it is organized thematically, historically, politically, geographically, etc. Espana: temas de cultura y civilizacion will not satisfy all readers, either. This textbook is directed at intermediate-advanced learners and is organized geographically, devoting each chapter to a particular Spanish autonomous community, though some chapters focus on two regions. The only difference with regard to that organization is Chapter 1, "Espana y la Comunidad Europea" and the final chapter, "Espana en el mundo." It needs to be stated from the ...


Fine Bird Books, Becky S. Jordan Jan 1992

Fine Bird Books, Becky S. Jordan

Special Collections Exhibit Catalogs

The Department of Special Collections is fortunate to have a number of 19th Century illustrated bird books. These books, filled with hand-colored plates, were produced at a time when there was tremendous interest in the descriptions of new species of birds. At the same time, a new printing technique, lithography, made illustration of new species a simpler process. This combination of art and science resulted in lovely volumes like those on display.
