Title

Learning How to Listen to Dance – A Phenomenological Analysis of Inclusive Methodologies

Synopsis:

In this article, I will analyze my experience as a dancer involved in the collaborative inclusive performance project Translation. This project is based on questions of accessibility, inclusion and the potential of the dancing body to move us. By building on Merleau-Ponty’s notion of incorporation, I will argue for the possibility of incorporating other people in our phenomenal field.

The Ultimate Goal: Reflections on the Philosophy and Science of the Pursuit of Happiness

Synopsis:

This essay synthesizes some contemporary cognitive studies on the topic, liberally referencing what classical philosophers have said about it. I also sprinkle the scholarship with personal reflections. Schematically, the essay discusses social factors of happiness, such as money, marriage, and children, and then psychological factors, such as personal values and religious beliefs. Then it explores more philosophical issues, such as how best to define and measure happiness; should we conflate it with virtue (as classical philosophers do); what is its relationship to melancholy and to the perception of beauty; and is it something we should even attempt to pursue–that is, is there any value in thinking of it as a goal, especially given that our cognitive habits make it so elusive.

Development of a Large Solar-shading Structure that Provides Human Thermal Comfort While Achieves Net-zero Status at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona, USA

Synopsis:

The Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona, USA, is transforming its campus to become the first Net-Zero operating park in the U.S.A. The House Energy Doctor Master of Science program’s faculty and graduate students at the College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture have been working on that project for the last three years. To achieve the Net-Zero goal, the existing four built areas of the park have been redesigned through Studio 601 faculty and students. These four areas are 1) the visitor center, 2) the one-mile residential loop, 3) the Maintenance Yard, and 4) the law enforcement and the research center complex. This paper demonstrates how the four built areas of the park were studied and how the maintenance yard energy consumption and operating cost was redesigned and redeveloped to include large solar-shading structures that provided human thermal comfort and achieve the goal of net-zero operation campus. 470 modules producing 345 watts distributed over 3 arrays on one of the maintenance yard scheme produced 1.1 GW capacity while acted as a water catchment and harvesting device for the research center.

1989: Fall of the Berlin Wall. The Cold War and the Crisis of Democracy

Synopsis:

The Cold War dominated every aspect of life in the second half of the 20th century. It may be reasonable to expect that it ended in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, this paper argues that the Cold War and its ideology, despite good intentions and proclamations, did not end, but indeed continues until this day. In order to prove this point three internationally acclaimed German movies, Run Lola Run (1998), Good Bye, Lenin!(2003), and The Lives of Others (2006), are analyzed.

“‘Pop’” Goes Hawaii: The 20th Century Origins of Tourism in Hawai’i & the Impact of U.S. Pop Culture on Women in the Islands of Aloha”

Synopsis:

Far off the western coast of the U.S. lie the breath-taking, mythical, magical islands of Hawaii—the country’s premier paradise playground and the ultimate alluring island fantasy for tourists worldwide, like a tropical Disneyworld. In this idyllic tropical paradise, Native Hawaiian women serve as cultural hostesses, whose bodies, dress, ‘suggestive’ dances, smiles and costumes are commoditized embodiments of an allegedly primitive, pre-commercial society. In short, Hawaiian women’s femininity has been exploited by the equally powerful forces of colonialism, imperialism and tourism.

Despite its centuries-long status as an independent nation of islands in the South Pacific, Hawaii became the fiftieth U.S. state in 1959—after its 1898 annexation in the country’s turn-of-the-century imperialistic drive. During the twentieth century, tourism became the main, driving economic force in Hawaii; in tourism brochures, even pineapples were a promotional ‘agent’ of tourism. Once World War II exposed the beauty and magic of the islands to the U.S., Amercian pop culture co-opted this fantastical image for its own use in movies and television shows. World War II, then, was an important historical turning point, transforming the public representation of Hawaii in the American imagination. Specifically, my research in the Hawaiian/Pacific Collections at the Univ. of Hawaii at Manoa found depictions of “exotic” Native Hawaiian hula dancers, in leis and hula skirts, touring nightclubs in the U.S. to promote tourism to Hawaii before and after World War II. These hula shows, sketched by American artist John Melville Kelly, created an “imagined intimacy” between Hawaii and the U.S., allowing Americans to possess their island colony physically and figuratively. As Hawaiian women danced the hula, they feminized and eroticized Hawai’i, implying that like a woman, the islands willingly submitted to American tourist and military ambitions.

Country-specific Sentiment on Microblogs

Synopsis:

Can expressed sentiments (positive, neutral, negative) within text messages of microblogging services be differentiated by the users’ country? Are there indeed country-specific emotional patterns of microblogging behavior? Using the example of the service Twitter, the work in hand intends to introduce a measure for the expressed sentiments of countries. This idea assumes that people of different regions and cultures have a specific emotionality, not only in daily life but also in writing microblogs. 14,192,182 tweets have been analyzed from different countries, languages, and topics to be able to get significant results in how distinct people represent their positive and negative feelings and opinions to the outside depending on their home and culture. We applied a lexicon-based approach and adjusted the term lists (words as well as emojis) intellectually. As indicators we introduced sentiment strength (general emotionality), sentiment climate (difference between positive and negative sentiment values) and the amount of positive as well as negative microblogs. Finally, we compared our findings with other indicators on country level (as Human Development Index or average temperature).

Predicting Risk Behavior in College Students: A Function of Family Dysfunction

Synopsis:

Two measures of elements of family dysfunction (scores on Minuchin’s “family Dynamics” scale and naïve rater ratings of student free writing about how his or her family would handle a family crisis) were gathered along with scores on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Results showed that higher self-reported levels of dysfunction of Minuchin’s scale were positively correlated with scores on multiple subscales of the Risk Behavior Survey.

Echo Chambers and Filter Bubbles of Fake News in Social Media:
Man-Made or Produced by Algorithms?Patterns and Trends in Contemporary Canadian Literature for Young People: Spotlight on Mental Health

Synopsis

SynopsisConcerning fake news and deception on online media, some authors stress notions of “echo chambers” or “filter bubbles” in order to describe communities of people which believe the same (maybe false) propositions. In the popular press, the construction of such communities is made by “bad algorithms.” However, what is the truth and what are lies as well as deceptions? What is the role of the algorithms when it comes to forming filter bubbles and supporting echo chambers? And what are the roles of individuals and their information behavior (posting fake content as well as reading, commenting, liking, or sharing it) in this process? Are there human selection biases or really misleading algorithms? In this article, we are going to analyze the interrelationship of knowledge, information and truth, ranking algorithms with side effects of producing filter bubbles (with the example of Facebook’s sorting algorithm), and, finally and most important, the role of individuals in the process of making and cultivating echo chambers. Here, we empirically study the effects of fake news on the information behavior of the audience while working with two case studies, applying quantitative and qualitative content analysis of online comments and re-plies. We describe the reactions of audience members to deepen our understanding of the pat-terns of the users’ cognitive states. Do users really produce or live in echo chambers?This presentation presents data from three original studies relating to patterns and trends in contemporary Canadian fiction for young people. A key part of the discussion spotlights picture books as well as junior and middle grade novels and young adult fiction that present mental health issues.
