Is Participation in Community Media an Agent of Change?
In accounts of community media, participation is often described as a social process that is linked with social change. By encouraging participation, it is often argued, it should be possible to achieve socially progressive ...
Model design of a superconducting quantum interference device of magnetic field sensors for magnetocardiography
In recent years, there has been an increase in the study of magnetocardiography (MCG), complementary to electrocardiography (ECG) research, with the purpose of increasing accuracy in the diagnosis of heart and brain ...
Remote Sensing Scene Classification Based on Convolutional Neural Networks Pre-Trained Using Attention-Guided Sparse Filters
Semantic-level land-use scene classiﬁcation is a challenging problem, in which deep learning methods, e.g., convolutional neural networks (CNNs), have shown remarkable capacity. However, a lack of sufﬁcient labeled images ...
Still Wrong Use of Pairings in Cryptography
Several pairing-based cryptographic protocols are recently proposed with a wide variety of new novel applications including the ones in emerging technologies like cloud computing, internet of things (IoT), e-health ...
Applying Kinaesthetic Empathy and Extended Mind Theory to Invasive and Discreet Instruments in Sound-Based Live Performance
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-12-21)
I have taken the ambiguous psychology of Kinaesthetic Empathy and the relatively recent ideas that form Extended Mind Theory and re-contextualised them so they are relevant to sound-based live performance. I then used these ...
Enter the World’: James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) and the Family-Adventure Movie
In this chapter, I contextualise the extraordinary success of James Cameron's Avatar (2009) by relating it to dominant global box office trends, with a particular emphasis on the prominence of fantasy and Science Fiction ...
Deep penetration of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene composites by a sharp-tipped punch
The penetration of unidirectional (UD) and [0o/90o] cross-ply ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibre composites by sharp-tipped cylindrical punches has been investigated. While the measured penetration pressure for ...
Spiritual Science Fiction for the Whole Family: Spielberg, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and 1970s Hollywood
(Press universitaires de la Méditerranée, 2018)
In this essay I examine Steven Spielberg’s contribution to the fundamental reorientation of Hollywood cinema in the late 1970s (back towards all-inclusive family entertainment) by taking a closer look at the critical ...
An Angel in Hell: Artur Brauner and the Attempt to Make a German Oskar-Schindler-Biopic
Film Studies tends to deal only with film projects that have been completed and pays particular attention to the work of directors, thus largely ignoring the fact that the vast majority of attempts to make movies fail, ...
