    Menezes, Igor; Alchieri, João Carlos
    This chapter addresses the application of psychometrics into neuropsychology

  2. Amara West and the shrinking Nile

    Woodward, Jamie; Macklin, Mark
    A series of well-preserved old river channels is a distinctive feature of the landscape around Amara West. One of the palaeochannels lies immediately north of the town: it may have been much like the small channel beside Ernetta Island today (below). The dried-up channel at Amara West raises key questions, fundamental to our understanding of life here. When did flow in this channel cease to be permanent? Was the town founded on an island? Was the abandonment of the town linked to the failure of this channel and resulting changes to living conditions?

  3. Light and its interaction with antiquities and works of art: a conservator’s perspective

    Kotoula, Eleni
    This chapter addresses issues related to light–object interaction along with its resulting phenomena, taking into consideration materiality issues. It presents light and its role in artefacts studies, either as a tool for finds analysis or as a corrosion agent. It attempts a balanced investigation into past and contemporary approaches towards light from the conservator’s perspective. It discusses traditional raking and oblique light examination, along with its advanced digital analogue, Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), which bridges the gap between digital photography and three-dimensional modelling. Applications of dome and/or Highlight RTI in a wide variety of material and artefact types, as well...

  4. CHER-Ob: a tool for shared analysis in cultural heritage

    Weiqi, Shi; Kotoula, Eleni; Akoglu, Kiraz Goze; Yang, Ying; Rushmeier, Holly
    The study of cultural heritage involves many different activities, including digital data visualization, information analysis and sharing results. Current technologies focus on providing better tools for data representation and processing, neglecting the importance of analysis and sharing. In this paper, we present a software system, CHER-Ob, which offers powerful tools for evaluation and publication of the results of cultural heritage research, and at the same time supports visualization of various data formats. CHER-Ob also introduces the concept of Cultural Heritage Entity, which serves as a template for cultural heritage research and a model to manage projects. We use typical case...

  5. Menselijke waardigheid en inclusief HRM beleid

    Bal, P. Matthijs; De Lange, Annet
    Dit hoofdstuk gaat over de rol van waardigheid in inclusief HRM. Ten eerste wordt beschreven wat de rol is van de moderne HR-manager in organisaties en in welke rol de HRmanager opereert. Vervolgens wordt een breder perspectief geboden op basis van waardigheid waardoor inclusief HRM inhoud krijgt en kan bijdragen aan een meer circulaire economie. Het hoofdstuk schetst een model waarin inclusief HRM in een waardigheidsperspectief wordt geplaatst en onderlinge relaties worden besproken.

  8. The layout book [2nd ed]

    Tullett, Barrie
    Bloomsbury have published the second edition of The Layout Book, written by Gavin Ambrose and Paul Harris, and The Caseroom Press appear twice. Both Philippa Wood and Barrie Tullett are members of the International Society of Typographic Designers and Barrie is on the Education Panel of the Student Awards Scheme. One of Barrie's projects for the ISTD – Flatland – has been used as one of eight ‘exercises’ in the book. Flatland asked students to re-imagine the conventions of the book itself. The work chosen to illustrate a successful solution was by Matt Crowe, a Lincoln graduate from 2011.

  9. Reflectance transformation imaging beyond the visible: ultraviolet reflected and ultraviolet induced visible fluorescence

    Kotoula, Eleni
    This paper presents the recent developments of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) beyond the visible spectral area, with an emphasis on Ultraviolet (UV) RTI and in particular Reflected UV (UVR) RTI and UV induced visible fluorescence (UVF) RTI. A painted and incised ceramic vessel from the Archaeological Collection of the University of Southampton as well as fragments of Faenza maiolica ceramics from the Southampton City Council Archaeological Collection were used as case studies. Results indicate that a complete multispectral RTI visualization, including additional captures in the infrared and ultraviolet spectral region, can be a valuable addition to the examination protocol. In...

  10. Lifespan perspectives on psychological contracts

    Bal, M.; Vantilborgh, T.
    This chapter discusses the role of psychological contracts along the lifespan and careers of workers. It explains the meaning of the psychological contract, and discusses lifespan theories in relation to how psychological contracts may change with age. In particular, there are three ways through which psychological contracts evolve over time. First, the content of mutual obligations between employees and organizations may change over time, where older workers may perceive different obligations from themselves and their employer compared to younger workers. Second, the type and features of psychological contracts may change over time, with older workers generally experiencing more stable, yet...

  11. Rachela through the looking glass: researching the occupational subculture of lapdancers

    Colosi, Rachela
    Book Abstract: The Subcultural Imagination discusses young adults in subcultures and examines how sociologists use qualitative research methods to study them. Through the application of the ideas of C. Wright Mills to the development of theory-reflexive ethnography, this book analyses the experiences of young people in different subcultural settings, as well as reflecting on how young people in subcultures interact in the wider context of society, biography and history. From Cuba to London, and Bulgaria to Asia, this book delves into urban spaces and street corners, young people’s parties, gigs, BDSM fetish clubs, school, the home, and feminist zines to...

  12. Localism in the late-nineteenth-century Armenian churches of Ottoman Upper Mesopotamia

    Wharton, Alyson
    This chapter draws attention to the particular adherence to local models of architecture, decoration, building materials and techniques in Armenian churches built in the south-east of present-day Turkey, grouped together under the geographical term of Upper Mesopotamia. It looks to examples from the cities of Diyarbakır, and Mardin, which were situated in the Ottoman provincial unit (vilayet) of Diyarbakır, and the cities of Urfa and Antep, which were in the vilayet of Aleppo. These cases show how the usage of local styles was prevalent not just in one province but in the region of Upper Mesopotamia as a whole. Each one of these cities expresses a different...

  13. ‘I Understood that he Is entrusted to serve some great business undertaking’: Armenian architects reshaping the Ottoman east in the Hamidian era (1876–1909)

    Wharton-Durgaryan, Alyson
    Ottoman urban change in the nineteenth century has been associated with two ‘top down’ factors: firstly European influence (in the form of foreign architects, new building types, planning methods, civic bodies, etc.) and secondly, the state’s implementation of reforms centralising the supervision of building works. This paper looks to the cities of the Ottoman east to stress the agency of Armenian architects over local building activities. These architects not only provided a service at a time when the state was incapacitated, but they reformulated the urban image in these locations so that it was, at once, modern (conceived in terms of a European or Russian metropolitan model), local, and...

  14. Ghost-al erosion: beaches and the supernatural in two stories by M. R. James

    Armitt, Lucie
    Haunted landscapes dominate the writings of the Edwardian writer of ghost stories, Montague Rhodes (M. R.) James (1862-1936) and the fragile geological structure of Britain’s coastline has long suggested the sea as a threat to human habitation. For James, one of the most compelling narrative features of this coastline derives from the ease with which buried (but haunted) objects are unearthed by his protagonists and the fatal consequences that ensue. This chapter interrogates the relationship between the “real” predatory erosion of the Suffolk coastline by the North Sea and the fictive “ghost-al” erosion depicted in two of James’s seaside ghost...

  15. Schopenhauer on the metaphysics of art and morality

    Came, Daniel
    Schopenhauer’s accounts of art and morality emerge from his metaphysics and pessimism. In Book 1 of his main work, The World as Will and Representation, the empirical world is argued to be merely an idea or representation of the thing-in-itself, which, in Book 2, is identified as a fundamental force or energy (the will) that is generative of all things. The world of phenomena, the empirical world, appears as objectifications of the noumenal will. There are multiple grades of objectification: forces of nature, rocks, plants, animals, humans, states of consciousness, and so on. The will is “present and undivided in...

  16. Nietzsche on the aesthetics of character and virtue

    Came, Daniel
    This essay addresses the question of the relation of aesthetic to ethical value in Nietzsche's early and later writings. My central contention is that Nietzsche wanted to effect a rapprochement between aesthetics and ethics, to extend the structure of aesthetic judgment into the ethical domain, and, indeed, to effect the substitution of aesthetic for moral concepts when dealing with such typically ethical domains as action, motivation and character, and their adoption as the predominant terms in practical reasoning. The paper explores the development and transformations of this theme from its introduction in The Birth of Tragedy to Nietzsche’s imperative to...

  17. To what extend are the migrant workers’ rights positioned within the discourse of human rights

    Sonmez Efe, Sureyya
    “World community has entered into the varying degrees in to a universal community and violation of rights in one part of the world is felt everywhere…the idea of cosmopolitan right is therefore not fantastic and overstrained; it is a necessary complement to the unwritten code of political and international rights, transforming it into a universal right of humanity. Only under this condition can we flatter ourselves that we are continually advancing towards perpetual peace” (Immanuel Kant, 1795). This statement succinctly summarises an ideal picture of an international system of rights through the lenses of cosmopolitanism; the only way to accomplish perpetual peace...

  18. Living with a changing river and desert landscape at Amara West

    Woodward, J. C.; Macklin, M.; Spencer, N.; Binder, M.; Dalton, M.; Hay, S.; Hardy, A.
    The arid environment and lack of modern develop-ment around Amara West has preserved distinctive and high-resolution records of changing Holocene river behaviour, both in a palaeochannel immediately adja-cent to the town, and in one 2km further north. Com-bining optically stimulated luminescence and 14C dating, alongside investigation of channel morphology and reach-scale flood inundation simulation, a chronologi-cal framework for the dynamic riverine environment in this part of the Nile Valley is reconstructed for the 2nd and 1st millenniums BC. The palaeogeographical setting of Amara West changed dramatically and rapidly after the founding of the town as channels dried out and the...

  19. Women and society in native life in South Africa: roles and ruptures

    Hughes, Heather
    Examines Solomon Plaatje’s views on women’s position in society and in the struggle for emancipation in South Africa in the early twentieth century. There are three main sections. The first focuses on Plaatje’s network of support in the UK, including Olive Schreiner, Sophie Colenso, Jane Cobden Unwin, Georgiana Solomon and Alice Werner. The second discusses Plaatje’s wife Elizabeth (nee M’Belle) as a role model for African women, both in her role as a mother and in the way she articulated her public and domestic responsibilities. The third discusses the Plaatje’s attitude to the role of women in organisational politics. The...

  20. A musician in the field: the productivity of performance as an intercultural research tool

    Balosso-bardin, Cassandre
    This chapter offers new perspectives on the relationship between performance and fieldwork. Anchored in ethnomusicological theory, the chapter focuses on the ethnomusicologist’s experience as both a researcher and a performer in the field. Research was perceived as a performance (after Barz 1997) and this contributed towards legitimising the researcher’s role and identity. As the ethnomusicologist became an accepted outsider, the field developed into a two-way experience between the people on the field and the researcher. However, the “lived experience” (Titon 1997) of music performance was still essential to gain cultural insights, learning what could only be experienced.
