Toward The History Of Study Of Symbiogenesis: On The English Translation Of B. M. Kozo-Polyansky’S A New Principle Of Biology (1924), Victor Fet Dec 2016

Toward The History Of Study Of Symbiogenesis: On The English Translation Of B. M. Kozo-Polyansky’S A New Principle Of Biology (1924), Victor Fet

Victor Fet

We reproduce the text by Victor Fet, which was read on 6 October 2011 at the Moscow Society of Naturalists during the presentation of new book translation (B.M. Kozo- Polyansky. Symbiogenesis: A New Principle of Evolution / transl. by Victor Fet; ed. by Victor Fet & Lynn Margulis. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2010. 138 p.) This half- forgotten book by Boris M. Kozo-Polyansky was known only by name to Western biologists. Victor Fet gives a brief history of this new translation, enthusiastically initiated and supported by Lynn Margulis (1938–2011), a famous naturalist who was always eager to gave credit where credit was due. Kozo- Polyansky, along with Merezhkovsky, Portier, and Wallin, pioneered symbiogenetic ideas that were brilliantly developed and vindicated starting from 1960–1970s. It was Lynn Margulis who noticed also that Kozo- Polyansky preceded E. Chatton in recognizing the profound diff erence between prokaryotes and eukaryotes; in fact, he maintained that this difference was due to symbiogenetic, complex nature of the eukaryotic cell! Two “scientistic” poems (in Russian) by Victor Fet are included, dedicated to all the prophets and martyrs of science.

Poetic Threshold Moments: From Fledgling To Published Author, Carolyn Rickett, Judith Beveridge, Maria T. Northcote, Anthony Williams, David Musgrave

Maria Northcote

This paper presents perspectives from award-winning poets on an initiative where they were involved in publishing with undergraduate students who were completing a creative writing class at a tertiary education institution in NSW, Australia. This initiative provided students with the opportunity to be both taught by and publish with world-class poets. As a culmination of the semester’s class the students also had an opportunity for selected work to be published alongside high profile writers in a collaborative anthology. The recent Wording the World (2010) and Here Not There (2012) poetry anthologies are printed artefacts of this process. While reflecting ...

Real-World Design Team Activity: What Is Poetry For?, Carolyn Rickett, Anthony Williams

Anthony Williams

Shared understanding is often the ultimate goal driving any communication exchange. In an industry-based context where Multi-Disciplinary Design Teams are commercially employed to deliver timely and concrete outcomes, establishing a common understanding amongst team members is imperative for achieving this end. One of the challenges faced by Multi-Disciplinary Design Teams is the clear communication of discipline-specific information to colleagues who may not share the same technical or procedural frame of reference. It is not uncommon for senders of expert-specific messages to find that intended recipients do not comprehend the message’s original meaning. In such instances where a message fails ...

The Writing Cure?: Ethical Considerations In Managing Creative Practice Life Writing Projects, Sue Joseph, Carolyn Rickett Oct 2016

The Writing Cure?: Ethical Considerations In Managing Creative Practice Life Writing Projects, Sue Joseph, Carolyn Rickett

Carolyn Rickett

The autobiographical turn in literary studies has increasingly placed value on self -representation as a strategic means of reclaiming voice, identity and agency. By and large, the narrating ‘I’ is circulated and read as a storied performance/product which empowers the writer. Typically such texts are often ones that rehearse, record and expiate individual trauma, and also produce a set of readings that textually frame the work as ‘therapeutic’. There is a growing selection of texts which narrativise personal trauma now being set for literary examination in tertiary syllabi. Concurrent to the formal reading of trauma texts in the context ...

Swimming In A Sea Of Hypocrisy?: The Ethical Ambiguity Of David Rieff's Memoir, Carolyn Rickett, Paul T. Race, Jill Gordon

Carolyn Rickett

When noted intellectual Susan Sontag died from myelodysplastic syndrome in 2004 aspects of her illness trajectory and death were captured and curated by photographer Annie Leibovitz. The harrowing photographs of Sontag’s diseased body – and later her corpse laid out in a New York mortuary – were included in travelling global exhibitions and were further commodified in Leibovitz’s book which she titled A Photographer’s Life. The historical events of Sontag’s illness and death were therefore (re)written and (re)presented in a way that involved commercial gain. Sontag’s son, the journalist David Rieff, registered his contempt for ...

Something To Hang My Life On: The Health Benefits Of Writing Poetry For People With Serious Illnesses, Carolyn Rickett, Cedric Greive, Jill Gordon Oct 2016

Something To Hang My Life On: The Health Benefits Of Writing Poetry For People With Serious Illnesses, Carolyn Rickett, Cedric Greive, Jill Gordon

Carolyn Rickett

Objective: We aimed to explore the effect of a poetry writing program for people who had experienced a serious illness. Method: For this study we randomly assigned 28 volunteer participants with a history of serious illness, usually cancer, to one of two poetry writing workshops. Each group met weekly for 2 hours for 8 weeks. The second group was wait-listed to enable comparison between the two groups. We used the Kessler-10, a measure of wellbeing, before and after the workshops and also interviewed the participants at these times. Results: Participants responded enthusiastically and each group demonstrated an increase in wellbeing ...

Unbalancing Acts: Plagiarism As Catalyst For Instructor Emotion In The Composition Classroom, Ann E. Biswas Sep 2016

Unbalancing Acts: Plagiarism As Catalyst For Instructor Emotion In The Composition Classroom, Ann E. Biswas

Ann E. Biswas

In this essay, the author reflects on her experiences while researching composition instructors’ emotional responses to plagiarism. The research found that instructors faced a variety of complex and competing feelings when students plagiarized, and those responses threatened to upset relationships, power structures, and professional identities in the classroom. The author considers how and why her own emotional labor was altered in light of these findings and what this might suggest about the need for increased professional conversation in our discipline regarding the impact of emotions in the writing classroom.

Alone In The Crowd: Appropriated Text And Subjectivity In The Work Of Rirkrit Tiravanija, Liz Linden Jul 2016

Alone In The Crowd: Appropriated Text And Subjectivity In The Work Of Rirkrit Tiravanija, Liz Linden

Liz Linden

The practice of Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija is perhaps the best-known exemplar of relational aesthetics, a distinction first made by Nicholas Bourriaud and affirmed in the writings of many subsequent art critics; but the critical focus on the interactive aspect of his works has tended to rely on utopian modes of community engagement, which ignore Tiravanija's strategic deployment of relational, interactive structures to implicate the viewer, publicly, in problematic political positions. Tiravanija commonly uses appropriation in his artworks as a way of exposing viewer's biases and this paper focuses specifically on his use of appropriated text to explore ...

This chapter presents selected findings from our study of a well-established ESL writing program at a U.S. university with a large population of international undergraduate students.

The instruments included demographic data from university registrars; one instructor survey, administered at the end of the semester; and two student surveys, one administered at the beginning of the semester and one at the end. The instructor survey response rate was 100% (13 teachers); the student survey response rates were 82.5% (161 students) and 88% (171 students), respectively.

The reported findings inform five ...

“Gaurav’s troubles began when he was very young, actually before he had learned to walk. While removing a pot of hot oil from the stove, his mother had stumbled, sloshing some of the oil over the edge of the pot and splashing little Gaurav on his lower left leg and foot, and across the back of his left hand and arm…”
