Kuroda Seiki: Setting and Transversing Artistic Boundaries in Meiji Japan

Djojohadikusumo, Sitie I 01 April 2013 (has links)
Kuroda Seiki (1866-1924) is widely considered as the father of Japanese Modern Art. After studying in France for nearly a decade, he returned to Japan and brought the Western-style oil painting (yōga) to a larger audience. His controversial and progressive artwork forced the public to consider the larger questions in play within the political backdrop of the Meiji restoration. He integrated the nude genre and the plein-air art theories into the art pedagogy. He not only influenced and informed the public with his paintings. He made sure to educate the public, served on committees and taught in schools. Being at the right place at the right time, he had an outsized influence on artistic development in Meiji Japan, changing the course of Japanese Modern Art.

Hearts of Stone

Hite, Marcel S 01 January 2014 (has links)
Hearts of Stone is about the power of friendship and love. Jamie and Spencer become very close friends after neutralizing a bully. Jamie is an only child and really wants a friend. Spencer is the youngest of a few children but the only child still left at home, which has turned rather tumultuous. In trying to process elementary school and the struggles of being 8 and 9 years old, they find comfort in each other. 20 years after Spencer's mom moves them away from Spencer's father, Jamie and Spencer reconnect at a mutual friend's wedding. It's like time hasn't passed. They catch up and it comes out that Jamie now identifies as gay. Spencer has been having trouble with relationships but self-identifies as straight. After a long night of talking and drinking, Jamie and Spencer end up sleeping together. Will Spencer be able to move past labels and accept his love for Jamie or will he close himself off to the only real love he's ever had?

"Votes For Mothers": The National Woman's Party's Conflicted Arguments for Women's Suffrage, 1913-1920

Varney, Gillian H. 01 January 2014 (has links)
This is a study of the National Woman’s Party’s Arguments for Woman Suffrage, from 1913 to 1920. This study explores the ways in which the National Woman's Party (NWP) appropriated classed and racially exclusive ideologies to legitimize women’s right to vote; the ways in which the NWP’s arguments for suffrage predicated the empowerment of white middle-class women on the marginalization of non-white and working-class Americans. It investigates the factors that facilitated the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, including World War I and the NWP’s militancy. Additionally, it examines the degree to which the NWP’s arguments for suffrage have fragmented and delegitimized the American feminist movement as well as perpetuated and strengthened white patriarchy in America.

Snakes in the grass: visual research into myth themes as a means of understanding and interpreting current environmental issues, and as a vehicle for generating art works in response to those issues : an exegesis of the serpent archetype in Mesopotamian/biblical and aboriginal Australian belief systems

Rhys, Gillian Lenin Unknown Date (has links)
Snakes in the grass is a visual research endeavour that utilises an arts and science disciplinary interface, to develop a method for generating a series of contemporary allegorical artworks that engage a study of Serpent symbolism and mythology. On the side of Trinity Catholic College beside St. Carthage’s Cathedral in Lismore stands a life-sized sculpture of the Virgin Mary standing on a Serpent. Inside the school can be found a smaller version of the same sculpture, where priests and students light candles and incense, and place them around the statue. This thesis researches and questions the iconography of the ‘cursed Serpent’ as a primary signifier in the European Biblical tradition in Australia, as it stands alongside the iconography of the existing Indigenous cultures of this land, cultures that have a tradition of Serpent veneration. The intention is to identify correlations between differing cultural and social attitudes that are embedded in religious traditions, and different attitudes to the use of natural resources. Material collected through studying the history of Biblical traditions is superimposed, in a form of cultural montage, on to images of technical procedures of research undertaken by scientists researching an innovative water remediation process on Mt Carrington in northern NSW. The scientific research was focused at a disabled gold mine, where acid mine drainage contamination was severe, and represents a small yet significant example of environmental issues being faced all over the world. This research used salt water neutralised bauxite, or red mud, a waste product from aluminium mining to remediate water and soil affected by gold and silver mining. The creative process developed into a contemporary allegorical narrative that operates as a personification and an enactment of a subjective re-reading of issues surrounding Serpent symbolism and the environment. The resulting artworks include paintings, photographs and an earthwork sculpture on the mine site at Mt Carrington. These works are generated to research, focus attention on, and stimulate discussion about cultural and environmental changes and challenges in Australia.

Perspectives on Black Africa; The National Geographic Magazine, 1931-1941 and 1957-1967

Winslow, Marti Smith 01 December 1976 (has links)
The objectives of this thesis are to determine what information was presented about Black Africa in the National Geographic Magazine articles published during two ten year periods; pre-World War II, 1931-1941 and post-Ghanaian Independence, 1957-1967; to describe the authors’ attitudes towards Black Africa as expressed in the articles; to evaluate to what extent the content of the Black African-related articles published during those two decades reflected the atmosphere of the time and the degree and level of interest prevalent during those periods; and to compare and contrast the two periods examined to determine whether or not there was a change of attitude about Black Africa expressed by the authors through their articles. The researcher worked under the assumption that the attitudes expressed in the two ten year periods under analysis would be significantly different. In undertaking this work the researcher drew on the articles relating to Black Africa in the National Geographic Magazine Vols.59-80 and Vols. 111-132. The 42 volumes of the National Geographic Magazine covering those two ten year periods were examined to identify the articles relating to Black Africa. The twenty-six articles that contained a discussion of some aspect of African life and culture were selected for review. Historical information about the National Geographic Magazine is provided in the introduction of this work. Articles appearing in the publication during the decade 1931-1941 are considered in Chapter One. Generally, the articles during that period focus on the old and ‘primitive’ Africa, minimizing contemporary change and evolution. Chapter Two considers articles published during the period from 1957-1967. In the selections from that period, change (contrast of old and new) is the pervading theme. The third and final chapter serves as a synopsis as well as a contrast and comparison of the two periods examined to determine whether there was a change of attitudes towards Black Africa expressed in the articles. The assessment concludes that attitudes expressed in the two periods have undergone a significant change primarily in the latter period’s.subtle fascination with the ‘exotic,’ ‘primitive,’ alien cultures south of the Sahara.

A comparative analysis of Jean Anouilh's L'Alouette, Charles Peguy's Jeanne d'Arc and Andre Obey's La Fenetre

Woods, Rose Mary 01 May 1980 (has links)
Although there have been numerous and varied treatments of Joan of Arc throughout the ages, there is to date no detailed, analytical study of Joan of Arc based on Jean Anouilh’s L’Alouette, Charles Peguy’s Jeanne d’Arc and Andre Obey’s La Fentre. The ob jective of this comparative study is to show the relationships, similarities, and differences that exist in these representative works. After an introductory chapter which includes a biographical sketch of Joan of Arc and a brief summary of the historical facts which occurred during her lifetime, Chapter Two presents a bio graphical sketch of the playwright, Jean AnouiIh, emphasizing those forces and influences that helped to determine his philoso phy. It also reveals his treatment of Joan in L’Alouette through theme and characterization. Chapter Three examines the life and influences of Charles Peguy and his intensive interest in Joan of Arc. This examination reveals Peguy’s extreme devotion to historical accuracy in his drama. Chapter Four presents Obey’s biography, Ms influences, philosophy, ideas and attitudes. His one-act play La Fentre is analyzed, reflecting a unique treatment of Joan through the character in absentia technique. This chapter is followed by a conclusion which, while highlighting the similarities and differences evident among the three works with reference to charac ter delineation, themes and influences, shows how each playwright has succeeded in creating a distinctly original drama about the Maid of Orleans.
