I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, Yasmin Mazloom Apr 2018

I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, Yasmin Mazloom

Art Practices MFA Theses

The life of immigrants is discussed in two chapters: living in the country of origin and living abroad. The space that exists in between these two countries and places, is diminished and not discussed because it is not physical but more of a mental space that is rarely recognized unless it is experienced firsthand. Even though only a minority of people will understand this liminal space, it is important to be aware of its existence. Those who reside in this space need to recognize they are not alone, even if their liminal space is different from others, so that they ...

Dust & Blood: Famine And Fertility In The Age Of Akhenaten, Alyssa Grace James Jan 2016

Dust & Blood: Famine And Fertility In The Age Of Akhenaten, Alyssa Grace James

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis expands on the ongoing inquiry into the unusual life of the pharaoh Akhenaten. Amongst the incongruities of his reign, the central deity known as the Aten has been one of the most elusive and heavily debated. The relationship between the pharaoh and the Aten was clearly central to much of the oddity of his reign, affecting the visual depiction of the pharaoh and the many alterations to the notion of kingship Akhenaten implemented. However, no clear understanding of Akhenaten or the Aten exists. Recent excavations at Amarna have allowed for a clearer view into these unanswered questions. It ...

From Monuments To Ruins: An Analysis Of Historical Preservation In Jordan, Mason Seymore Oct 2014

From Monuments To Ruins: An Analysis Of Historical Preservation In Jordan, Mason Seymore

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

The city of Amman, Jordan manages a plethora of archaeological sites that date back several millennia. Unfortunately, with the limited resources the government has at its disposal, the city is unable to conserve the sites in the best way possible. Because of this, a public disconnect between the value of history and attempts that are made to preserve it has emerged. This study explored the effects of historical conservation in Jordanian society. More specifically, the study focused on the relationship between how the public and the government perceives historical conservation efforts in Jordan. This study attempted to answer two research ...


A Period Of Transition: Early Islamic And Umayyad Coinage, Anna Tiner Jan 2014

A Period Of Transition: Early Islamic And Umayyad Coinage, Anna Tiner

Featured Research

A study of four coins from 620 to 680 AD provides a meager yet insightful glimpse into the coinage minted by Islamic rulers during their conquest over the Holy Land and the transition of rule from the Byzantine Empire to the Islamic Caliphate. With the help of an innovative technology called Reflective Transference Image (RTI), on loan from USC, I created high-resolution images that can be adjusted with respect to light and reflectivity. Creating RTI images of the coins administers a deeper alternate perspective giving light to aspects of the coin that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Using ...


Momentary Memorials: Political Posters Of The Lebanese Civil War And Hezbollah, Megan Miller Jan 2014

Momentary Memorials: Political Posters Of The Lebanese Civil War And Hezbollah, Megan Miller

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The Lebanese civil war (1975-1990) is a product of its diverse participating factions. With more than a dozen political, religious, and social parties, the streets of Lebanon became flooded with contradicting political imageries, influencing public perception of the ‘other’ and inciting military action. Their unique role in Lebanon’s political atmosphere allows such graphics to transcend mere propaganda to become physical sites of memorialization, despite their ephemerality. Posters exhibiting martyrs, political icons, and spiritual references control viewers’ field of vision and prompt their physical accumulation around the images, much like one would see at a funeral or sculptural memorial. These ...

Teaching Classical Sociological Theory In Singapore: The Context Of Eurocentrism, Syed Farid Alatas Jan 2011

Teaching Classical Sociological Theory In Singapore: The Context Of Eurocentrism, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

We argue that there is a need to rethink the teaching of classical sociological theories given our concern with the limitations of the received theoretical canon, and through our encounters with students of sociology who also persistently ask that the classics be shown to be meaningful and of contemporary relevance. In our teaching, we highlight Eurocentrism as an additional and essential context for understanding the rise of classical sociological theory, and to attune students in more meaningful ways to the works of Marx, Weber, and Durkheim. Ironically, such an approach constitutes a new form of legitimating the classics by revealing ...

Modeling The Mechanics Of Temple Production In The Middle Kingdom: An Investigation Of The Shena Of Divine Offerings Adjacent To The Mortuary Temple Of Senwosret Iii At Abydos, Egypt, Vanessa E. Smith Aug 2010

Modeling The Mechanics Of Temple Production In The Middle Kingdom: An Investigation Of The Shena Of Divine Offerings Adjacent To The Mortuary Temple Of Senwosret Iii At Abydos, Egypt, Vanessa E. Smith

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

During the Middle Kingdom, the term Sna or shena, was used by the ancient Egyptians to denote a food production area, primarily of bread and beer, which was attached to religious institutions. As a production area, the shena represented a place of pivotal importance in the economic structure of the Egyptian temple as a producer of divine offerings, wages and pensions for temple personnel, and as a taxpayer to the Egyptian state. In theory, every temple would have had a shena to provide for its cultic and economic needs. Although there are thousands of temples identified archaeologically from ancient Egypt ...


Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser Dec 2009

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.

Corrections And Updates To "Identifying Biblical Persons In Northwest Semitic Inscriptions Of 1200-539 B.C.E.", Lawrence J. Mykytiuk

Libraries Research Publications

This article does two things. First, it corrects things in the book, Identifying Biblical Persons in Northwest Semitic Inscriptions of 1200-539 B.C.E. (2004), abbreviated IBP below:
• Regarding potential forgeries, the article applies the principles for treatment of unprovenanced inscriptions set forth in Christopher A. Rollston, “Non-Provenanced Epigraphs II: The Status of Non-Provenanced Epigraphs within the Broader Corpus of Northwest Semitic,” Maarav 11 (2004): 71–76.
• It disqualifies proposed IDs in eight (8) inscriptions that are forgeries or probable forgeries, notably including the two bullae frequently attributed to the biblical Baruch.
Second, it evaluates 32 proposed identifications (IDs) of ...

The Rahmi M. Koç Museum, Istanbul, Amy Bix, Taner Edis Jan 2004

The Rahmi M. Koç Museum, Istanbul, Amy Bix, Taner Edis

History Publications

The past decade has witnessed the establishment, rapid growth, and gradual maturing of the Rahmi M. Koç Museum in Istanbul, Turkey's only museum of science, technology, and the history of technology. Its focus on transportation, industrial, and communications technologies is familiar to European and American visitors, but new for Turkish citizens. While the Koç Museum displays objects from all over Europe and the United States, it seeks to highlight Turkish perspectives on history of technology. A small but dedicated staff has significantly expanded and improved the exhibits over just the last two years.

The Inscriptions Of Assurnasirpal Ii And His Son, Tammi J. Schneider Jan 1989

The Inscriptions Of Assurnasirpal Ii And His Son, Tammi J. Schneider

CGU Faculty Publications and Research

The existence of written records at a site is viewed with great joy because texts impart information that cannot be gleaned from other material remains. When no such texts are found, the archaeologists and other associated scholars must work that much harder to understand what happened at the site. One way this is done is by analyzing the remains of the site in light of other contemporary information, as has been done for Hasanlu in this issue. Contemporary sites of Assyria have produced historical texts recounting the activities of the Assryian kings that not only shed light on the period ...
