Maxwell on Saturn's rings by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

7 editions published between 1883 and 1983 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Clerk Maxwell's 1856 Adams Prize Essay, "On the Stability of the Motion of Saturn's Rings," forms the central body of this book and is the work that first established his reputation as one of the greatest mathematical physicists of any generation. It is surrounded by previously unpublished materials written both before and after the essay was completed. The former group consists of sixteen letters - to William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), George Gabriel Stokes, Peter Guthrie Tait, and other friends and colleagues - written while Maxwell was working out the problems and preparing the essay for publication, and they reveal both the sureness of his approach and false starts and errors. The post-essay documents include a review of the work by George Biddell Airy, the Astronomer Royal, and correspondence with the Harvard astronomer George Bond in 1863. Here Maxwell attempts to extend his analysis to include the effects of collisions among the particles of the ring, employing his own newly developed kinetic theory of gases. The editors' introduction provides a historical context for Maxwell's contribution

This work is the first explicit examination of the key role that mathematics has played in the development of theoretical physics and will undoubtedly challenge the more conventional accounts of its historical development. Although mathematics has long been regarded as the "language" of physics, the connections between these independent disciplines have been far more complex and intimate than previous narratives have shown. This study encompasses engagements across discipline boundaries and many nations rom the ear of Euler and Bernoulli o that of Hilbert and Einstein. At all times physicists and mathematicians retained their distinct sets of disciplinary standards and goals. Interactions within historical ears are handled using the standards of the time to define mathematics and physics. In this context, the works of Lagrange, Laplace, Fourier, Jacobi, William Thomson, Maxwell, Helmholtz, and many others are discussed, and by 1870, it is evident that the essentials of modern theoretical physics are in place. The epilogue, spanning the decades from 1870 to the First World War, deals with the decline of these interactions and the building of new connections. It is particularly significant that these new patterns of interactions became paradigmatic for the rest of the twentieth century. The unique perspectives concerning the history of theoretical physics will undoubtedly cause some raised eyebrows, as the author convincingly demonstrates that practices, methods, and language shaped the development of the field, and are a key to understanding the mergence of the modern academic discipline. Mathematicians and physicists, as well as historians of both disciplines, will find this provocative work of great interest

The Artist-run Gallery: Examining the Artist-Curator's Perspective in Curating Exhibitions in University and College Galleries by Charles Dodoo( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Through this research study I aimed to critically examine the perspectives and experiences of five artist-curators who curate exhibitions at university and college galleries in southwestern US cities. Specifically, I explored how their arts background and their dual roles of artist and curator influenced both their curation and artmaking practices. Two research methods were employed to collect data: case study and arts-based research. These methods resulted in data collected in oral, written and visual documentation formats. As a participant in this study, my individual art and curation practices were documented in part through arts-based research. The findings indicated that (a) all five artist-curators use their curation practice as a teaching tool and that their individual artistic perspectives are reflected in their curation practice; (b) all of the artist-curators use the gallery as an educational tool in conjunction with the mission of their respective institutions; (c) the artist-curators are cognizant of the complex interrelationships that affect their dual roles as artist-curators and educators; (d) reflection on professional curatorial practice plays a significant role in creating and curating artwork as well as in the education process. These findings are consonant with Dewey’s theory of experience and, in particular, continuity of experience where artist-curators reflect on past curation experience to gain a better understanding of their current curation practices, which they then "transfer" to viewers through their acts of creating artwork and curating exhibitions. Additionally, I found (e) a correlation exists between the artist-curators' curation and artmaking practices that suggests that the artists reflected upon their artmaking when curating and vice-versa, which to some extent benefitted both practices; and (f) artists bring fresh perspectives to gallery work. The findings from this study may serve as a springboard for thoughtful conversations concerning the diverse experiences of artist-curators and their perspectives when they curate in university/college galleries. For those individuals interested in pursuing a career in curation, this study will illuminate the experiences of the artist-curator and show how a background in curation not only influences one’s artmaking, but is a valuable tool for educating the community and raising artistic awareness

Fostering New Spaces: Challenging Dominant Constructions of Power and Knowledge in Early Childhood Art Education by Shana Cinquemani( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Within this dissertation I discuss my experience as both teacher and researcher in an early childhood art education research project with the goal to challenge traditional conceptions of power and knowledge in work with young children. Inspired initially by the idea of reactivating children's traditionally subjugated knowledges, in this research I aimed to foster a space where children and adults could ethically collaborate in art, making, and research. Over the course of 10 weeks, this art classroom was built as a space created for children, grounded in notions of change, movement, trust, and respect. The children were not only encouraged to create their own opportunities for making, and also to challenge what it means to exist and make in the early childhood art classroom by engaging in play, exploration, and collaborations with adults. In what follows, I share some of the children’s words and work in order to make their experience in this classroom space visible. Both their artworks and experiences are analyzed through various theoretical lenses, including theories surrounding nomadism and movement, ethical encounters, collaborations between adults and children, and chaos theory in play. Ultimately, I argue that challenging conventional understandings of power, authority, and knowledge in the art classroom demands resistance from both adults and children. However, this resistance is coupled with a responsibility for educators to listen deeply to what their students both want and need, and to embrace curricular spaces that welcome the unknown. Throughout this dissertation it is my hope to present new and different ways of being and engaging with young children in spaces of art education
