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

8 editions published between 1883 and 1983 in English and held by 418 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 It is surrounded by previously unpublished materials written both before and after the essay was completed.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
The language of physics : the calculus and the development of theoretical physics in Europe, 1750-1914 by Elizabeth Garber( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 from the era of Euler and Bernoulli to that of Hilbert and Einstein." "Mathematicians and physicists, as well as historians of both disciplines, will find this provocative work of great interest."--Jacket

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 34 WorldCat member libraries 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

Makers, crafters, educators : working for cultural change( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Makers, Crafters, Educators brings the do-it-yourself (DIY) ethos of maker and crafter movements into educational environments, and examines the politics of cultural change that undergird them. Addressing making and crafting in relation to community and schooling practices, culture, and place, this edited collection positions making as an agent of change in education. In the volume’s five sections—Play and Hacking, Access and Equity, Interdependence and Interdisciplinarity, Cultural and Environmental Sustainability, and Labor and Leisure—authors from around the world present a collage of issues and practices connecting object making, participatory culture, and socio-cultural transformation. Offering gateways into cultural practices from six continents, this volume explores the participatory culture of maker and crafter spaces in education and reveals how community sites hold the promise of such socio-cultural transformation

Hepatitis C virus infection in vulnerable populations: a seroprevalence study of homeless, people who inject drugs and prisoners in London, UK( )

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

Abstract: Background: Injecting drugs substantially increases the risk of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and is common in homeless people and prisoners. Capturing accurate data on disease prevalence within these groups is challenging, and this problem hinders efforts to develop targeted strategies to reduce HCV transmission. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of HCV in these vulnerable populations. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study between May 1, 2011, and June 30, 2013, in London, UK. Using the National Health Service Find and Treat service, we recruited participants from 39 hostels for the homeless, 20 drug treatment services, and a prison. Inclusion criteria were age over 18 years, capacity to consent, and being identified as homeless (living in a homeless hotel), having a history of drug use (using services at drug treatment centres), or being a prisoner at the time of the study. A questionnaire was administered and blood samples were collected to be tested for HCV. Findings: We recruited 1207 individuals, of whom 491 were homeless (40·7%), 205 were drug users (17·0%), and 511 were prisoners (42·3%). 98 (8·1%) of the 1207 participants had active HCV infection and 38 (3·1%) had a previous HCV infection. Among HCV-positive individuals, 77 (56·6%) had a history all three risk factors (homelessness, imprisonment, and drug use), 37 (27·3%) had two risk factors, and 22 (15·4%) had one risk factor. Multivariate logistic regression identified three factors associated with increased risk of HCV infection: duration of injecting (odds ratio for <1 year 12·62, 95% CI 6·22-25·57; 2-9 years 50·04, 24·80-100·95; and ≥10 years 67·34, 32·29-140·46), age more than 30 years (3·00, 1·33-6·76), and UK-born non-white (0·38, 0·15-0·99). Separate multivariate analysis showed that alcohol problems (2·92, 1·24-6·89), age 30-49 years (8·29, 1·06-64·73), and age more than 50 (13·85, 1·67-114·85) increased the risk of HCV infection in individuals who were not injecting drugs. Interpretation: Homeless services, drug treatment services, and prisons provide good opportunities for identifying HCV-positive individuals. More than half of HCV-infected individuals had the three intersecting risk factors, highlighting the vulnerability of these patients. Reducing the burden of HCV among these vulnerable groups is fundamental to lessen HCV transmission.

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
