CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

“This glossary contains over 250 key terms and is illustrated with more than 100 images. A few of the key terms are repeated to give a different context to the term with each use. In such cases, a different illustration may be used, in keeping with the culture and time period under which the key term is listed. This resource can be used digitally, as a series of webpages (on Canvas, for example) or as a PDF of this entire glossary that is made available on certain platforms. As a series of webpages, the book is organized in modules. The PDF, when available, can also be printed into a hard copy of the entire glossary. The structure of this glossary follows art historical periods culturally. When viewing this glossary as a series of webpages, each of the topics listed under Table of Contents (see previous page) is contained on its own page. The length of each page varies a great deal due to the arbitrary “length” of a webpage. All image captions, as well as their attributions and licenses, are listed at the bottom of each page.”

This OER was made possible through the support of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges Open Educational Resources Initiative (ASCCC OERI). This textbook was developed with the intention to support customizability and allow instructors to adopt and adapt the materials to fit their own course needs through the use of an open license and open resources. Because of this, this textbook can be transferred fully or as chapters (modules). It is meant to be used as you (the instructor) see fit. Alignment to Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC): At the beginning of each module chapter, learning objectives and LSSC competency sets are listed that the content aligns to. This is done to provide further insight into how the material can best support your course. In the appendixes, you will also find perspectives from students and professionals that can be incorporated into your classroom discussions about the profession. These insights were gathered by alumni of LSS certificate programs, advisory board members of LSS programs, and other library community members. This text was also written with the intention to not just highlight EDI efforts and priorities for libraries, but also with EDI practice in mind - meaning, we wanted to use and incorporate resources that provided a diverse range of experiences and perspectives as well. This includes checking for accessibility and usability.

This YouTube channel features a series of videos recorded in 2014 by Hayley Smith, a university student who studied in Jordan in 2014. Before her trip to Jordan, Smith conducted a survey of K-12 Arabic teachers, asking them to recommend topics for the videos that would be helpful in teaching Arabic. The result is this series of videos, arranged in playlists that follow each individual participant through different scenarios and questions. The short clips are wonderful for exposing Arabic students to colloquial Arabic, spoken in daily situations and at a natural pace. This is a great way for students to see what young Jordanians are like, and to learn about their interests, their studies, and their relationships. Also on this channel are other playlists of popular videos, such as Arab Idol, which have been edited down for classroom use.

The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Questions about access to scholarship go back farther than recent debates over subscription prices, rights, and electronic archives suggest. The great libraries of the past—from the fabled collection at Alexandria to the early public libraries of nineteenth-century America—stood as arguments for increasing access. In The Access Principle, John Willinsky describes the latest chapter in this ongoing story—online open access publishing by scholarly journals—and makes a case for open access as a public good.

A commitment to scholarly work, writes Willinsky, carries with it a responsibility to circulate that work as widely as possible: this is the access principle. In the digital age, that responsibility includes exploring new publishing technologies and economic models to improve access to scholarly work. Wide circulation adds value to published work; it is a significant aspect of its claim to be knowledge. The right to know and the right to be known are inextricably mixed. Open access, argues Willinsky, can benefit both a researcher-author working at the best-equipped lab at a leading research university and a teacher struggling to find resources in an impoverished high school.

Willinsky describes different types of access—the New England Journal of Medicine, for example, grants open access to issues six months after initial publication, and First Monday forgoes a print edition and makes its contents immediately accessible at no cost. He discusses the contradictions of copyright law, the reading of research, and the economic viability of open access. He also considers broader themes of public access to knowledge, human rights issues, lessons from publishing history, and "epistemological vanities." The debate over open access, writes Willinsky, raises crucial questions about the place of scholarly work in a larger world—and about the future of knowledge.

The purpose of this tutorial (along with the “Advanced Keyword Searching, Part I” tutorial) is to help the student master comprehensive, keyword searching. Performing a truly comprehensive, keyword search is more difficult than performing a similarly thorough, subject heading search. We hope that this tutorial will make the steps involved in this complex process easier to understand and master.

This class is developed around the concept of disobedient interference within the existing models of production of space and knowledge.
Modeling is the main modus operandi of the class as students will be required to make critical diagrammatic cuts through processes of production in different thematic registers – from chemistry, law and economy to art, architecture and urbanism – in order to investigate the sense of social responsibility and control over the complex agendas embedded in models that supports production of everyday objects and surroundings. Students will be encouraged to explore relations between material or immaterial aspects and agencies of production, whether they emerged as a consequence of connection of mind, body and space, or the infrastructural, geographical and ecological complexities of the Anthropocene. These production environments will be taken as modeling settings.

This interdisciplinary course surveys modern European culture to disclose the alignment of literature, opposition, and revolution. Reaching back to the foundational representations of anarchism in nineteenth-century Europe (Kleist, Conrad) the curriculum extends through the literary and media representations of militant organizations in the 1970s and 80s (Italy's Red Brigade, Germany's Red Army Faction, and the Real Irish Republican Army). In the middle of the term students will have the opportunity to hear a lecture by Margarethe von Trotta, one of the most important filmmakers who has worked on terrorism. The course concludes with a critical examination of the ways that certain segments of European popular media have returned to the "radical chic" that many perceive to have exhausted itself more than two decades ago.

This course considers films spanning the entire career of pioneering Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel (1900–1983), from his silent surrealist classic of 1929, Un perro andaluz, to his last film, Ese oscuro objeto del deseo (1977). We pay special attention to his Mexican period, in exile, and the films he made in, and about, Spain, including his work in documentary. It explores Buñuel's early friendship with painter Salvador Dalí and poet Federico García Lorca, surrealist aesthetics, the influence of Freud's ideas on dreams and sexuality, and the director's corrosive criticism of bourgeois society and the Catholic church. We will focus on historical contexts and relevant film criticism.

North American ecosystems have fundamentally changed over the late Pleistocene and Holocene; from a system dominated by mammoths, to bison, to domestic livestock. Given the very different body size and herd formation of these 'ecosystem engineers', it is likely that animals influence soil structure, water tables, vegetation and other animals in the ecosystems. What has been the ecological influence of the continued 'downsizing' of the largest animals in the ecosystem?

Sometime after 1492, the concept of the New World or America came into being, and this concept appeared differently - as an experience or an idea - for different people and in different places. This semester, we will read three groups of texts: first, participant accounts of contact between native Americans and French or English speaking Europeans, both in North America and in the Caribbean and Brazil; second, transformations of these documents into literary works by contemporaries; third, modern texts which take these earlier materials as a point of departure for rethinking the experience and aftermath of contact. The reading will allow us to compare perspectives across time and space, across the cultural geographies of religion, nation and ethnicity, and finally across a range of genres - reports, captivity narratives, essays, novels, poetry, drama, and film. Some of the earlier authors we will read are Michel Montaigne, William Shakespeare, Jean de Léry, Daniel Defoe and Mary Rowlandson; more recent authors include Derek Walcott, and J. M. Coetzee.

After the Fall: The Conservation of Tullio Lombardo's "Adam"
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Conservators, scientists, and curators tell the story behind the unprecedented conservation of Tullio Lombardo's Adam. The life-size marble statue of Adam, carved by Tullio Lombardo (Italian, ca. 1455–1532), is among the most important works of art from Renaissance Venice to be found outside that city today. Made in the early 1490s for the tomb of Doge Andrea Vendramin, it is the only signed sculpture from that monumental complex. The serene, idealized figure, inspired by ancient sculpture, is deceptively complex. Carefully manipulating composition and finish, Tullio created God's perfect human being, but also the anxious victim of the serpent's wiles. In 2002, Adam was gravely damaged in an accident. Committed to returning it to public view, the Museum undertook a conservation treatment that has restored the sculpture to its original appearance to the fullest extent possible. The exhibition allows Adam to be viewed in the round and explains this unprecedented twelve-year research and conservation project. It also inaugurates a new permanent gallery for Venetian and northern Italian sculpture. The installation of this gallery was made possible by Assunta Sommella Peluso, Ignazio Peluso, Ada Peluso, and Romano I. Peluso.

Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" Interpretation Pack
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This SALT Interpretation Pack has been designed as a resource for educators and students as they explore the themes of the Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu in Istanbul, Turkey. Designed for use in high school classrooms, its contents include activities, multimedia resources, terminology and opportunities for discussion. Educators are encouraged to adapt, shape and build upon these materials to best meet the needs of their students and teaching curricula.

"Across the Slope" was first exhibited at Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona, in 2008. An installation of a modified Seat 131 (the Fiat 131 Mirafiori model produced in Spain) hovering over a man-made slope, "Across the Slope" responds to the dream of an emerging working class. When, in the 1970s, Fiat began licensing automobile production to manufacturers in Turkey, Spain and Morocco, car prices in these countries dropped. Cars were no longer luxury items. They became affordable consumer products—and symbols of a “modern,” Western lifestyle. Though modification of the Fiat was common, as Öğüt demonstrates, no matter how advanced or decorative the modifications, a car’s capacity remains the same: “A slope is always a slope, and it is always possible for a car to get stuck on one.”

Ahmet Öğüt "Yokuş Boyunca" Yorumlama Rehberi
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

SALT Beyoğlu’nda düzenlenen “Yokuş Boyunca” sergisindeki temaları açıklayan bu Yorumlama Rehberi, eğitimciler ve lise öğrencileri için bir kaynakça olarak hazırlanmıştır. Eğitimcilerin, rehberin içeriğindeki aktiviteler, multimedya kaynakları, terminoloji ve tartışma olanaklarını öğrencilerinin ihtiyaçlarına en iyi cevap verecek şekilde düzenleyerek müfredatlarına uyarlamalarını öneririz.

“Yokuş Boyunca” ilk olarak 2008 yılında, Barselona’daki Centre d’Art Santa Mònica’da [Santa Mònica Sanat Merkezi] sergilenmiştir. Sergi alanında oluşturulmuş bir yokuşta kalmış modifiye bir Seat 131 (İspanya’da üretilmiş Fiat 131 Mirafiori modeli) enstalasyonu olan “Yokuş Boyunca,” gelişmekte olan orta sınıfın mütevazı hayallerine gönderme yapmaktadır.

Fiat’ın 1970’lerde Türkiye, İspanya ve Fas’taki imalatçılara otomobil üretim ruhsatı vermeye başlamasıyla bu ülkelerdeki araba fiyatları düşer. Araba artık bir lüks olmaktan çıkar; bütçeye uygun bir tüketim ürünü ve “modern”, Batılı yaşam tarzının bir simgesi haline gelir. Fiat’ın modifikasyonu yaygındır; ancak Öğüt’ün “Yokuş Boyunca”’da gösterdiği gibi, modifikasyonlar ne denli gelişmiş ya da dekoratif olursa olsun, bir arabanın kapasitesi hep aynı kalır: “Yokuş hep yokuştur ve bir arabanın bir yokuşta kalakalması her zaman mümkündür.”

The albumen silver print, invented in 1850, was the most popular photographic printing process of the 19th century. To make albumen silver prints, a sheet of paper is coated with albumen (egg white) and salts, then sensitized with a solution of silver nitrate. The paper is exposed in contact with a negative and printed out, which means that the image is created solely by the action of light on the sensitized paper without any chemical development. Because the paper is coated with albumen, the silver image is suspended on the surface of the paper rather than absorbed into the paper fibers. The result is a sharp image with fine detail on a smooth, glossy surface. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, grant number MA-10-13-0194.
