To My Beloved, BB4N: The history of “woman’s writing”, or the epistolary novel

To My Beloved, BB4N: The history of “woman’s writing”, or the epistolary novel Patch, Laura A series of memorandums on the epistolary novel as established in the 1700s and its development in the modern age with the inclusion of electronic communications. Grown from a tradition of males imitating females, epistolary novels in modern times subvert gender expectations and stratification. Rather than a male chasing a woman, these modern novels give women the opportunity to participate as equal participants in their relationship. Case study: Meg Cabot’s “Boy” series.

Looking at connections between innovation and sport: How sporting cultures identify and manage new technologies

Looking at connections between innovation and sport: How sporting cultures identify and manage new technologies Goldsher-Diamond, Emily The contemporary public perception of sport as heavily regulated by sets of established rules, thanks in part to popular media coverage of binding expedited decisions handed down within a 24 hour timeframe by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) during the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, can perpetuate the view that cultures of sport are orderly and negotiations within them are neat; however, this is far from the case. The view of sporting cultures as beholden to top-down regulation occludes many of the practices that embed techniques and technologies within sporting cultures. This paper seeks to explore the space often concealed by the dominant narratives that privilege governing bodies in sport, spaces that simultaneously deny agency to the multiple actors and artifacts implicated in the history of sporting technology. The project draws examples from preexisting studies on mountain biking, ultimate fighting, pole vaulting and speed skating in order to identify the processes within each sport that end up designating an object as a technology, motivations for management of that technology and the practices that eventually do or do not lead to adoption of the technology within the sport. This exercise will lead to the final section of this paper, a framework-in-progress outlining potential routes through which barefoot running, Vibram FiveFingers and other minimalist running shoes might eventually be adapted by one or more running cultures. This is partially a corrective endeavor, revealing more complicated running cultures that incorporate lived experience, and a speculative project that might aid other scholars in making connections between innovation and sport that attend to and are embedded in deeply social fields of practice.

Have you ever opened up a database that someone else built and felt a little lost? Or ever thought of designing your own simple database and been unsure of where to start? Or perhaps you need to work with a team of database professionals and don't know how to speak their language? This course will help you overcome these hurdles. Adam Wilbert teaches the basics of relational database design, regardless of whether you are using Access, FileMaker, Open Office, or SQL Server. Learn common database mistakes to look out for, discover how to diagram use cases and requirements to plan your design, and develop a conceptual data model—translating your ideas into components like tables, relationships, queries, and views.


3D Printing with Photoshop

Lynda.com - Mon, 05/12/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Ryan Kittleson

Released On: 5/13/2014

Now you can use Photoshop CC to make 3D printing easier than ever. Photoshop's new tools take a lot of the heavy work out of 3D printing preparation, helping automate the process of hollowing models and exporting for full-color printing.

In this course, Ryan Kittleson shows you how to import 3D models or create your own right inside Photoshop. You can use texture maps, opacity maps, and bump maps to define the details and then export the models in print-ready formats. The finished models can then be printed at home or through a service like Shapeways.

This course was created by Ryan Kittleson. We're honored to host this training in our library.
