Hur påverkar språket som en intervju hålls på uppfattningen hos mottagaren? Med avstamp i teorin om social representation är detta huvudfrågan i arbetet. För att undersöka hur publiken av ett dokumentärt material påverkas beroende på det språk som talas skapades två videoklipp med intervjuer på olika språk. Materialet testades på en respondentgrupp som efteråt intervjuats om sin uppfattning av personerna i klippen. Analysen visade hur respondenterna tilldelade de båda personerna olika attribut, dels med anledning av språket, men även på grund av andra skäl. Resultatet visar hur språket kan påverka uppfattningen men fler variabler att undersöka kvarstår för framtida arbeten.

Perspectives from the Deaf Community: Representations of Deaf Identity in the Toronto Star Newspaper (2005-2010)

Bath, Paula M. C. 20 September 2012 (has links)
This thesis is an analysis of the representations of Deaf identity in a major English Canadian newspaper, the Toronto Star. A qualitative case-based discourse analysis was used to examine a documented interaction between the Toronto Star and eleven Deaf community leaders and allies. This research found that the most frequent use of ‘deaf’ is metaphorical and of the non-metaphorical uses, ‘Deaf’ identity is predominantly constructed from a pathological paradigm. The findings of this research provide a valuable perspective from a non-dominate cultural group, the Canadian Deaf community, on the representation of Deaf identity in mainstream print news media. It also makes linkages between the representations of Deaf identity and the experiences of these representations by Deaf people, and links the perspectives of this cultural group to the broader body of research related to minority identity negotiation in mainstream media.

Towards a pedagogy of devised theatre praxis

Fryer, Nic January 2013 (has links)
This thesis attempts to develop a pedagogy for devised theatre conceived of as a praxis. Part One explores the status and history of both devised theatre and theatre pedagogy, particularly in the UK but also in other contexts. In doing so, it attempts to demonstrate the multitude of ways in which both devised theatre and the pedagogy of drama, theatre and performance have been conceived. Part Two goes on to look at three frames through which devised theatre might be conceptualised: contemporary theories of language, creativity and social practice. With a particular focus on the theories of Jacques Rancière, I suggest that each of these offers a potential vision of art as a realm which can exist at a remove from everyday life, whilst still functioning within structures that indicate its social basis. The frames each contain a focus on process rather than only focusing on a finished artistic product. They also each suggest simultaneous reflection and action. In the final part of the thesis I map these three notions, particularly that of social practice, onto theories of praxis. I suggest that the notion of praxis offers a vision of what a pedagogy for devised theatre might look like, recognising the importance of process as well as product; reflection as well as action. Finally I use the Chicago based performance company Goat Island, who made work between 1987 and 2009, as a case study of what devised theatre praxis might look like through a discussion of their process, performance and pedagogy.

Generalized Calogero-Moser spaces and rational Cherednik algebras

Bellamy, Gwyn January 2010 (has links)
The subject of this thesis is the interplay between the geometry and the representation theory of rational Cherednik algebras at t = 0. Exploiting this relationship, we use representation theoretic techniques to classify all complex re ection groups for which the geometric space associated to a rational Cherednik algebra, the generalized Calogero-Moser space, is singular. Applying results of Ginzburg-Kaledin and Namikawa, this classification allows us to deduce a (nearly complete) classification of those symplectic reflection groups for which there exist crepant resolutions of the corresponding symplectic quotient singularity. Then we explore a particular way of relating the representation theory and geometry of a rational Cherednik algebra associated to a group W to the representation theory and geometry of a rational Cherednik algebra associated to a parabolic subgroup of W. The key result that makes this construction possible is a recent result of Bezrukavnikov and Etingof on completions of rational Cherednik algebras. This leads to the definition of cuspidal representations and we show that it is possible to reduce the problem of studying all the simple modules of the rational Cherednik algebra to the study of these nitely many cuspidal modules. We also look at how the Etingof-Ginzburg sheaf on the generalized Calogero-Moser space can be "factored" in terms of parabolic subgroups when it is restricted to particular subvarieties. In particular, we are able to confirm a conjecture of Etingof and Ginzburg on "factorizations" of the Etingof-Ginzburg sheaf. Finally, we use Clifford theoretic techniques to show that it is possible to deduce the Calogero-Moser partition of the irreducible representations of the complex reflection groups G(m; d; n) from the corresponding partition for G(m; 1; n). This confirms, in the case W = G(m; d; n), a conjecture of Gordon and Martino relating the Calogero-Moser partition to Rouquier families for the corresponding cyclotomic Hecke algebra.
