Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, Brianna R. Burke Jan 2019

Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, Brianna R. Burke

English Publications

Island Road in Louisiana seems to lead to nowhere. An hour and forty minutes southwest of New Orleans, deep in the bayou, Island Road was built on marshlands in 1953, but in the sixty years since, those have melted into the sea. Now hemmed in by water on both sides, for portions of the year Island Road is flooded and impassable, and it dead- ends into the Gulf of Mexico; not much to see and no reason to go out there, or so some folks might think. In fact, many think it is “irresponsible” to live in such a place ...

Animal Joy: Poems, Eric Fisher Stone Jan 2019

Animal Joy: Poems, Eric Fisher Stone

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

"Animal Joy" is a collection of poems which explores environmental and anthrozoological issues such as animal cognition, extinction, and weighs the problem of finding joy during our ecologically and politically tumultuous time. In several poems, the idea of childhood as a romantic ideal is explored. I see my collection, as with all my work up to this point, as part of the American Transcendentalist vision. This vision diffuses hierarchical binaries of human and nonhuman beings, civilization and the natural world, and the sacred and profane into an affirmation of life and the universe. Overall, I wanted to create a romantic ...

“No More Blackface!” How Can We Get People To Change Their Minds About Zwarte Piet?, Janelle Ward, Renata Rocha Mar 2018

“No More Blackface!” How Can We Get People To Change Their Minds About Zwarte Piet?, Janelle Ward, Renata Rocha

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

When Sinterklaas arrives in the Netherlands in December, he is accompanied by Zwarte Pieten made up in blackface, with afro wigs and bright red lips. Zwarte Piet, translated as “Black Pete,” has created growing controversy as a hurtful, racist caricature. Increasing voices demand change, but most of the population is opposed to altering the tradition. One way forward is to examine attitude change, and gain insight into how we can facilitate this process. This paper introduces the topic and reviews recent academic work on the controversy. Then, using autoethnographic vignettes (Humphreys, 2005), we explore our experiences with the tradition, weaving ...

Personae Non Gratae, Laura Bisaillon

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis has traditionally published creative pieces. We believe that this expression is a reflective way to contribute to critical issues in social justice. It was important to the author that this poem has a bilingual appearance. The poem was originally written in English and translated to Amharic.


Innovative Implementation Of A Web-Based Rating System For Individualizing Online English Speaking Instruction, Hyejin Yang, Elena Cotos Feb 2018

Innovative Implementation Of A Web-Based Rating System For Individualizing Online English Speaking Instruction, Hyejin Yang, Elena Cotos

English Publications

The primary goal of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in general, and of online language instruction in particular, is to create and evaluate language learning opportunities. To be effective, online language courses need to be guided by an integrated set of theoretical perspectives to second language acquisition (SLA), as well as by specific curricular goals, learning objectives and outcomes, appropriate tasks and necessary materials, and learners’ characteristics and abilities – to name a few factors that are essential in both online and face-to-face teaching (Xu & Morris, 2007). Doughty and Long (2003) articulate pedagogical principles for computer-enhanced language teaching, which highlight the importance ...


From Somewhere To Nowhere And Back Again: Emplaced Abstraction In Science Communication, James T. Spartz Jan 2018

From Somewhere To Nowhere And Back Again: Emplaced Abstraction In Science Communication, James T. Spartz

Iowa State University Summer Symposium on Science Communication

Science and environmental communication often relies on place-based narrative elements to explore relationships between particularity and abstraction. By combining Hayakawa’s abstraction ladder with Sack's relational geographic framework, a useful tool emerges for identifying narrative dimensions for creating compelling place-based nonfiction. This tool may be particularly useful in science communication teaching and learning. Hayakawa’s ladder of abstraction extends from particularity low on the ladder to higher-order abstractions up top. Sack's relational geographic framework explores the role of place in creating knowledge, stretching from a focal point of emplaced ontological forces – materiality, meaning, and social relations – through increasingly ...


Modern Chinese Essays: Zhou Zuoren, Lin Yutang And Others, Tonglu Li Jan 2018

Modern Chinese Essays: Zhou Zuoren, Lin Yutang And Others, Tonglu Li

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Modern essay, or creative nonfiction prose, whose success almost surpasses that of poetry, theater and fiction,1 was born out of the marriage of traditional Chinese and Western culture.2 On a superficial level, it distinguishes itself from traditional essay by using vernacular instead of classical or literary Chinese, and thus is more accessible to the masses. In terms of genre, it is narrower in scope than traditional essay which includes all non-verse writings, literary or not. More importantly, as Yu Dafu points out, modern essay values the expression of individuality and personality more than any other writings.3 By ...


Architecture In A Book, Daniel J. Naegele Jan 2018

Architecture In A Book, Daniel J. Naegele

Architecture Publications

In 1955, the year in which his renowned chapel at Ronchamp was completed, the Swiss-French architect, Le Corbusier—perhaps the most influential architect in the world at the time—drew a book for the Livres d’Artiste series produced by the famous publisher, Tériade. The series was begun in 1943 and featured books by Rouault, Bonnard, Laurens, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Léger, and Gris. Le Corbusier’s Le Poème de l’angle droit [1] was comprised of a poetic text written in a broad, cursive script and twenty full-page lithographs (32cm x 42cm). The lithographs were to be removed from the ...
