ASURE Immune Response and Behavior 2020
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

Our class is part of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE) at Indiana University Bloomington. This program, which is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, includes a two-semester lab experience where students design and conduct their own authentic research projects. All of the projects described in this eBook were designed and carried out by small groups of students in their first through second year of college as part of their course work in the ASURE Immune Response and Behavior Lab. The ASURE class of 2019-2020 certainly faced some unique challenges. In the spring of 2020, we were abruptly sent home to continue our coursework remotely. This interruption reduced the students’ time to collect data in the lab, but gave them the opportunity to learn R and other data analysis skills. In the fall of 2020, all of the students were able to return to campus and continue work on their projects, though there were several interruptions as students were forced to isolate and/or quarantine. Nevertheless, the students were very dedicated and persisted in their work, which is evident in their final projects.

The Birth of a Nation: The Cinematic Past in the Present
Only Sharing Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

More than one hundred years since it premiered on cinema screens, D. W. Griffith’s controversial photoplay, The Birth of a Nation, continues to influence American film production and to have relevance for race relations in the United States. While lauded at the time of its release for its visual and narrative innovations and a box office hit with film audiences, it provoked African American protest in 1915 for racially offensive content. In this collection of essays, contributors explore Griffith’s film as text, artifact, and cultural legacy and place it into both the historical and transnational contexts of the first half of the 1900s and its resonances with current events in America, such as #BlackLivesMatter, #HollywoodSoWhite, and #OscarsSoWhite movements. Through studies of the film’s reception, formal innovations in visual storytelling, and comparisons with contemporary movies, this work challenges the idea the United States has moved beyond racial problems and highlights the role of film and representation in the continued struggle for equality.

Chasing Moths: Studying Fantastic Literature to Develop Creative Writing
Restricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

The essay is divided into Fantastic Philologies and Strange Structures to focus on certain elements of style at a time. The goal of all this, essaying business, is to develop a foundation upon which a fantastic mode, or a style guide, or something, may be built. While the writing beyond is analyzing the literary characteristics of the texts, my goal is to formulate a more developed theory on creating works with high literary value. Fantastic Philologies formulates a way to apply an extremely academic concept to an extremely fantastic foundation of a certain genre. Strange Structures ties in the literary techniques of Weird fantastic fiction. This overall creates a suite of options for analyzing the literary value of a piece of Fantasy.

Image-ing Our Foremothers: Art as a Means of Connecting with Women's History
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This is an 8 week experience for the college student that begins by setting a learning context through using library resources, especially online databases, for locating images and art that reflect a chosen research topic and creating a mural that demonstrates the students’ comprehension of the chosen topic. The experience includes conducting research on 3 significant events or people in women’s US history. The written research will be accompanied by images or art that the student has chosen (described) as reflective of, or related to the researched event or person. In order to determine the students’ level of information literacy, the research will include a detailed description of how the students located the images. The students will also draw or describe a personalized sketch of one of the researched events or people. The culmination of the research is the design and painting of a collaborative mural depicting the students' research topics.

This Reusable Learning Object (RLO) was created out of the desire to infuse university courses with information literacy or research activities. A traditional research project on significant events or people in history is enhanced with the discovery and analyzing of art and images within the context of history. Analysis not only includes written text but the painting of a mural. The RLO is structured in a way that allows for easy replication and alteration to a variety of subjects and learning levels.

Phil-P102 Critical Thinking and Applied Ethics
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

As an “applied ethics” course, the goal is to help you understand the role that ethical (and other) values play in our lives, and how argumentation that involves values both depends on and differs from reasoning about non-evaluative matters. For even if agreement about matters of value is sometimes challenging, it is possible to think critically in ethical matters and to have better and worse arguments for our beliefs. Gaining proficiency in this sort of critical thinking isn’t just an academic need — it will help you understand and engage the world around you and be able to resist those who either intentionally or unintentionally would deceive you. This course is driven by concrete scenarios and real-world issues we face today, but it is framed by 2500 years of Western philosophy and the conceptual and analytical tools developed in this tradition. Thus, the course provides a good introduction to philosophy, and it will hopefully encourage some of you to pursue further study within the philosophy department.
