Hemingway's Writing Style and Voice: The 10-Point Discussion
Heay! Josh here, welcome to the WriteRightRite (: All literary critics understand that Hemingway as a minimalist writer, and that his style — his voice was one of the most unique writing styles of the time, and still is. But our question is, how can I write like him? How do I find the voice and style of the minimalist writer, like Hemingway? This list of 10 ways Hemingway wrote like a minimalist should point us in the right direction. 1. The "Hard Boiled" Style Hemingway wrote in a masculine, scientific, and at times rigid and abrupt way... 2. Be Efficient Hemingway despised superfluous literature... 3. Write the Truth "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." 4. Find Solitude "Although far from a recluse, Hemingway always wrote in solitude or near solitude when conditions didn't allow. In A Moveable Feast he recalls the cold of his room, warmed by sticks in the winter: "It was either six or eight flights up to the top floor and it was very cold and I knew how much it cost for a bundle of small twigs, to make a fire that would warm the room." 5. Write Standing up In 1958 a reporter named George Plimpton interviewed Hemingway. He writes: "A working habit he has had from the beginning, Hemingway stands when he writes. He stands in a pair of his oversized loafers on the worn skin of a lesser kudu -- the typewriter and the reading board chest-high opposite him." 6. Find a Secret Writing Place This is not just a place of solitude, but a different place than your normal haunts. 7. Write With Pencil and Paper It's not everyone's forte, especially in the modern world of laptops and wi-fi. But this was Ernest Hemingway's way. 8. Short Sentences Are Successful Hemingway was once challenged to write a story using only 6 words. He wrote: "For sale: baby shoes, never used." 9. Use Language Aggressively That doesn't mean cuss every other word, although at times Hemingway did that too. The more energetically forceful words are, the less need there is for more of them. Consider these 10. Keep the Good, Trash the Bad In 1934, Hemingway told F. Scott Fitzgerald: "I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of sh**. I try to put the sh** in the wastebasket." -Josh Photos by: Thanks for the great photos! - Marie-Lan Nguyen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiled_egg#mediaviewer/File:Egg_spiral_egg_cup.jpg Janet Ramsden https://www.flickr.com/photos/ramsd/11075130845/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Improvana http://improvana.tumblr.com/ Geraint Rowland https://www.flickr.com/photos/geezaweezer/13519812124/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Tobias Vemmenby https://www.flickr.com/photos/toobydoo/11350433966/in/photolist-hyH1UN-cResdL-6fWNYP-9aXQzK-6YEhtv-fhCMtq-jUqYE-4uLWG6-4MfCNH-7SyD2r-cUv4i3-6YJjjy-4f2GNe-btBcgy-cXfuvm-8uAuod-ihZWzm-84G99h-8gVDyg-jg1yUu-9EwYzB Laura Ritchie https://www.flickr.com/photos/lauraritchie/7874958188/in/photolist-cZTdHb-b3JagT-5b7m8i-7GHQjM-6iriP7-74kT37-iTBuer-aafHex-fUw3tp-b18J7g-8FDhnK-atwsgk-73EYvL-dVr5uX-963van-9vNiDT-9vZQbU-6CAqjw-6tbFKY-8kCy1P-6KDN3R-aNgqzX-7fw487-ax9Wxo-6FdyvF-8rEo7Q-ar28sq-ba2bue-b18FWx-6KDvJR-74gcCn-b18JHa-aubwL4-azLAn1-6w5iMm-jeNbbb-bifZjM-mmjP9P-8Z25y7-aiuSwC-613NTr-eetGE3-81uiaD-6zMFTc-6tbFU3-9WhLYe-6NjxHx-iAn97x-9TfHCw-8KffUP

Turning Superheroes Into Gods - How Zack Snyder changed the game
If you’ve ever wondered what the current superhero movie boom owes to Adolf Hitler, today at last your questions will be answered. That’s the aim, at least, of this first episode of Robbie Collin On..., a new series of video essays on film that I’m making for the Telegraph. The idea is to get under cinema’s skin in ways the written word can’t quite manage: to unpick trends, to decode images, to prise open directors’ toolboxes and rummage through their spanners. First up is Zack Snyder, the director who - love him or loathe him - has left his unmistakable stylistic mark on every comic book movie made today.

Henry Armstrong's Legendary Infighting Explained - Technique Breakdown
http://www.modernmartialartist.com/downloads/footwork-wins-fights/ In the days when there were only 8 weight classes, Henry Armstrong held championship belts in three of them at the same time. Armstrong was in many ways the complete prototype of a pressure fighter. He had so many tools in his arsenal that nearly any fighter could watch him and take something away. He gained the respect and praise of boxers as stylistically diverse as Sugar Ray Robinson and Jack Dempsey, with Dempsey proclaiming that there would never be another like him. Armstrong was crafty, pulling off brilliant traps before smoothly weaving out of harm's way. But he was also brutal, once earning a streak of 27 knockouts in a row. What was it about his style that earned Armstrong his legendary reputation and earned him so much admiration among his peers? First and foremost, Armstrong was a master at controlling his opponents posture, balance, and positioning. I talk a lot about how fighters use footwork to maneuver themselves into superior angles, but an equally important element to fighting is the ability to maneuver the opponent in inferior angles. In other words, Armstrong didn’t so much move himself into a good position as move his opponents into a bad one.

What is MEDIATED STYLISTICS? What does MEDIATED STYLISTICS mean? MEDIATED STYLISTICS meaning - MEDIATED STYLISTICS definition - MEDIATED STYLISTICS explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Mediated stylistics is a new and still emerging approach to the analysis of media texts (e.g. news programs, newspaper articles). Its aims are twofold: first, to take seriously the idea that media texts (e.g. news programs, newspaper articles) involve 'the construction of stories by other means'; and second to take seriously the idea that in an age marked by digital connectivity, media texts are inherently interactive phenomena. To meet these aims, mediated stylistics has brought together the analytic toolkits of discursive psychology—which is finely attuned to the contextual specificities of interaction—and stylistics—which is finely attuned to the grammatical/rhetorical/narratorial specificities of texts as texts. Recent research in which mediated stylistics has been put to work, for instance, has shown that and how mediated representation of issues like sexism, sexualisation, alleged rape and violence against women can differ, and differ in rhetorically consequential ways, from the original un-mediated source material. As a broadly ethnomethodological approach, mediated stylistics is strongly influenced by discursive psychology (DP), as well as the sociology of scientific knowledge (SSK), membership categorization analysis (MCA) and the work of stylisticians like Mick Short, Paul Simpson and Lesley Jeffries in which the analytic utility of stylistics to and for an understanding of data other than strictly 'literary' texts becomes immediately apparent. What unites these approaches is their rejection of a particularly widespread understanding of language in which words-in-here-on-a-page name things-out-there-in-the-world. Because this understanding assumes a natural link between descriptions and the events so described it also assumes a non-linguistic sense of the world as the final arbiter of the in/accuracy of descriptions. For DP, SSK and MCA, however, there can be no socially meaningful sense of the non-linguistic without the founding, constitutive force of language. Although language might not be all there is in the world, it is, nevertheless, all there is in the world that allows for the world to become accountable and knowable to ourselves and others. And once you reject—as these approaches reject—the possibility of some non-linguistic arbiter of accuracy, it follows that all descriptions (whether those we decide to treat as accurate or those we do not) have to be understood as the products of particular, locally specific contexts. The issue is no longer whether mediated texts transmit in/accurate in-formation, but how they act as "vehicles for action", where such actions might include defending someone, accusing someone, confessing to something, or any number of other things besides. It is here that we see how an ethnomethodological approach to language opens the possibility for a mediated stylistics; that is, for analytical tools traditionally associated with stylistics to be adopted for use within media studies. A journalist writing a news article about 'real events' and a novelist constructing a believably-real-yet-imaginary-world may well be working with different materials, but they are both engaged in essentially the same kind of literary task: building descriptive vehicles with the potential to pull off a certain set of contextually specific actions such as detailing, characterizing, informing, confessing, defending, accusing, and so on, in what constitutes an infinitely extendable list of other such social actions.

Clocks and Clouds -- Gyorgy Ligeti
"Clocks and Clouds" for 12-part women's chorus and orchestra. Music accompanied by the video "A Space Journey" and the original video can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un5SEJ8MyPc from the user "Impermanence". It should also be noted that the idea of pairing this work with outer-space scenery is not mine. A similar video was posted a while back, but it is no longer here. Ligeti's "Clocks and Clouds" is a relatively-short composition from 1972-1973 that takes its title from Karl Popper's 1966 philosophical essay "Of Clouds and Clocks". In this, Popper makes a compelling and easily-understood argument that scientific phenomena can be broken down into two main categories. The "clocks" are things that we can depend on such as, well, clocks. A clock can be easily measured, taken apart, and reconstructed. "Clouds", on the other hand, are things that we can only get a general, macroscopic view of -- things whose inner-workings we are unable to understand in a deterministic way. A cloud cannot be easily measured nor can it be taken apart. Furthermore, Popper argues that clouds are really made up of a cumbersome number of clocks -- so many that the whole cannot be understood completely. It isn't at all surprising that the meteorologist Edward Lorenz was making major breakthroughs in what we now tend to call "chaos theory" -- most easily defined by a sensitivity to initial conditions. Lorenz's major work in this area is known as "The Butterfly Effect" from the famous question he posed "can the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil cause a tornado in Oklahoma?" Throughout the 1960s, Ligeti was composing in two distinct styles described perfectly by Popper's essay. The "clouds" category includes works such as "Atmospheres" (1961), Lontano (1967), and the first movement from his "Cello Concerto" (1966). Examples of pieces falling under the "clocks" description are the third movement of his "Chamber Concerto" (1969) and the third movement of his "String Quartet No. 2" (1968). This "mechanical" style can be traced back to his semi-comical 1962 "Poem Symphonique pour 100 Metronomes", in which 100 metronomes are wound-up and left to unwind at various tempos. While compositions such as the "Chamber Concerto" and "String Quartet No. 2" do include both "clouds" and "clocks", they are presented in separate movements. It is in "Clocks and Clouds" where Ligeti seamlessly connects one to the other. Being one of his last works in this micropolyphonic style, it is a great summing up of a stylistic period.

The Eternal Influence of 'Citizen Kane'
There is no denying that Citizen Kane is a cinematic monument. Often regarded as the "greatest film of all time," Orson Welles' 1941 masterpiece is still watched and widely praised today. Why is that? Is it just because the film has held up so well over the years? Well, partially. But the main reason that Citizen Kane has stayed so relevant almost eighty years later is because of its influence on cinema. If you watch Citizen Kane now for the first time, you might think that it is nothing out of the ordinary, but that's because so many filmmakers were inspired by what Welles created. In the early 1940s, Welles was breaking new cinematic ground. In an era where studios were pumping out cookie-cutter films, Citizen Kane was pushing the boundaries of what a film could be narratively and stylistically. With a single film, Orson Welles changed the filmmaking industry forever. Orson Welles was a pioneer who changed the movie game multiple times.

The relationships among formalism, semiotics, and linguistics are explored. Claude Levi-Strauss's structural interpretation of the Oedipus myth is discussed in some detail. In order to differentiate Jakobson's poetic functions, Professor Fry analyzes the sentence "It is raining" from six perspectives. Significant attention is paid to the use of diagrams in literary linguistic theory. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Synchrony and Diachrony 06:47 - Chapter 2. The Emergence of Structuralism 11:24 - Chapter 3.

√ Interpretation in Action | Understanding Complex Texts | English
#iitutor #English #TextAndContext https://www.iitutor.com/ Interpretation in action requires you to look at a piece of text closely and consider not only interpretation strategies, but text, context and theme. This enables you to not only interpret a text effectively, but give a strong case when justifying it in a response. The style and type of text has the most influence upon interpretation. Language, Visuals, Structure, Style, Techniques, Voice, Characters, Story. Context is related to the construction and background of a text: Social, cultural, religious background. Nationality and identity of the author. Fragment vs. whole text. Narrative arc and representation. Ask: ‘does my interpretation ‘fit in’ with what the rest of the text does?’ Another consideration is ‘theme’, or the purpose and message of the text. If you ‘know’ the theme: Interpretation should match the ideology contained within that theme. If you don’t ‘know’ the theme: Interpretation should match the mood and style of representation used. 'a walk through the rain’, Sadnedd, Forgot Umbrella, Cleaning, Recklessness, Renewal, Bad Day, Bad omens, bad luck, freedon of spirit, apprehension, shroud, discomfort. Text; Visual text shows two people (M/F), look like lovers. Theme; Mood feels ‘happy’ with warm lighting and close proximity. Context; Moonlit night, modern city couple, solitary image. So? ‘Freedom of Spirit’ of two people young and in love. To interpret a text Use frame work of text, context and theme Connect them with the best meaning.

Eimear McBride on A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing
Eimear McBride speaks about winning the Baileys Prize for her experimental novel A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing. When debut novelist Eimear McBride won the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction -- formerly known as Orange -- on June 4 2014, the book world was stunned that she had beaten known quantities Donna Tartt and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. But perhaps no one was as surprised as McBride herself. Her novel, A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing, experiments with syntax and is stylistically indebted to James Joyce, which makes it difficult to read at first. As she told the Telegraph's Gaby Wood, she didn't think Baileys, the prize's new sponsor, would want to be associated with such a book. But her win has done something on behalf of committed readers everywhere: expanded the idea of what mainstream fiction can be. As Professor Mary Beard, who was one of the judges, later put it: "accessible" doesn't mean "easy". Before it was picked up by the tiny independent publisher Galley Beggar Press (it was only the second book they'd ever published), A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing had been turned down for almost a decade, by more publishers than McBride can count. When she met us, the morning after her triumph, at the offices of her paperback publishers Faber and Faber, McBride explained how she became a novelist -- and why, after so much rejection, she never gave up.

The Rise and Fall of Half-Life
Please consider supporting us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/GVMERS In 1998, a little known company named Valve released a first-person shooter named Half-Life and changed the face of gaming. Where other shooters struggled to provide even a semblance of a story, Half-Life had brains to match its brawns; a stirring tale featuring a realistic human cast and a protagonist that was more than a hand and a gun unfolded before the player’s eyes as they progressed through each level. As Valve grew, so too did Half-Life’s reputation, with Half-Life 2 in 2004 once again revolutionizing the genre, and its episodic expansions, Half-life 2: Episode One and Episode Two, further raising the bar. The series didn’t release consistently, and occasionally suffered unexpected and painful setbacks; but when it did, it seemed as if Valve could do no wrong – until the series suddenly stopped. Shifting priorities, a lack of motivation, and other, more nebulous factors would lead Valve to put Half-Life on ice in the middle of its prime, leaving a generation of gamers adrift, and an opus unfinished. And yet – Half-Life lives on. Be it in the innumerable games and series it inspired or provided the computative bedrock for, an undying stream of mods, or other media based on the franchise, Half-Life’s DNA is permanently embedded in the fabric of the video game industry, and will likely remain so for some time. As sad as it is that a Half-Life 2: Episode 3 or a Half-Life 3 will likely never happen, and as frustrating as it is that Valve remains belligerent as to precisely why, the series, for the most part, has only really fallen… out of Valve’s hands. This is the rise and fall of Half-Life. ------------------------------------------------------------- Cinematic shots by Other Places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LQqo67W2ZY ------------------------------------------------------------- #gvmers #halflife #valve Subscribe to GVMERS: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=GVMERS Follow @GVMERS on Twitter: https://twitter.com/GVMERS Like GVMERS on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GVMERS Join the GVMERS Discord channel: https://discord.gg/sZApcwx Subscribe to the GVMERS subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/GVMERS/

Citizen Kane Visual Essay
Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane 1941 is a watershed film which re-defined many of the techniques and technologies used in storytelling and cinematography. It was Welles first film and was not a high budget production, so many of the innovations were achieved as much for cost saving purposes as for artistic reasons, but this necessity created a compelling visual aesthetic which gives the film much of its dynamic character. Is it possible for a director to be established as an auteur with his first film? Being the producer, writer, director and main actor in the film, Welles contribution is obvious, but does his work fit the description of an Auteur – someone who is technically competent, has an identifiable personal style and is able to convey deeper meaning for artistic expression in the film. By using the narrative and the cinematography artistically, as a way of reinforcing the story, Welles created depth of meaning and a visually rich scene where the meaning of the scenes is described minimally through acting and script but expressed fully through manipulation of light, dark, sound, scale and focus – the construction of the story is pieced together in the viewers mind much more powerfully than if there had been actors describing the scene. This sophisticated approach integrating the technical components of filmmaking with the artistic endeavor of story telling is what marks Orson Welles as a director of genius and as an auteur. Starting with the initial credits, the directors name and title shot linger in silence and then cut to a ‘No Trespassing’ sign accompanied by sinister music. A series of vignettes of opulent decay follow, leading to a dark castle with a single lit window. This cuts to the interior of a gothic bedroom with a man in bed, he is holding a snow globe which falls and breaks when he dies, having uttered his final word ‘Rosebud’. A woman enters and is reflected in the snow globe, the scene then cuts to news reel footage and a voice over describing Kane and Xanadu and the opulence and decadence that they represent, cutting to funeral footage the sequence then ends with a montage of newspaper headlines announcing Kane’s death. Citizen Kane is not a film Noir, but it has many of the characteristic elements of the genre. Film Noir are essentially gritty detective stories set around a central mystery which use voice over narration, flashbacks, chiaroscuro and reflections as stylistic techniques to convey artistic meaning and give depth and immediacy to the plotline. Citizen Kane lacks a detective, but has a central mystery in the character of its protagonist, and uses multiple voice overs, flashbacks and chiaroscuro to convey meaning and help to both drive the pace of the plotline and enable the dramatic visual aesthetic of the film which is gothic verging on baroque. When we see his films we, the audience, immediately recognize that Welles is the director and know that this will not be a predictable film, but will be a poetic, cinematic journey through light and dark, near and far, and dynamic visual composition. The opening sequence to citizen Kane is a perfect encapsulation of the whole style of the film and of Welles’ style – all of the elements are present in his use of cinematography, mise-en-scene, chiaroscuro and all are conducted in a manner which reinforces storyline in a creative and visually interesting way.

JRBB - The Euclidean Trip through Paintings by Escher (Brandt Brauer Frick Interpretation)
Download: https://www.beatport.com/release/moebius-strip/2161143 JRBB: Moebius Strip EP (Additional beat production by COEO. Remix by Brandt Brauer Frick) Label: Kryptox "...surprising, individualistic, cutting-edge and irrepressibly fun" (The New York Music Daily) JRBB is a German 15 person big band that combines Jazz with Electronica. Additional beat production by COEO (Toy Tonics). On this EP is a rework from JRBB friends BRANDT BRAUER FRICK included. This EP is the first release on KRYPTOX: a new Berlin based label for Neo-Krautrock/JazzElectronica/Experimental music. The new label is made by Mathias "Munk" Modica. The producer behind indiedance labels Gomma and Toy Tonics. (Modica produced records with people like James Murphy, WhoMadeWho, Peaches, Daniel Avery, The Rammellzee a.o.) With the new label he goes a step further. Searching for new artists who experiment on a high musical level and go beyond boundaries. Far away form the traditional dance universe. The first release on Kryptox comes from JRBB. A 15 piece Jazz group that has a very own, new way to combine Jazz with electronic elements. A New York newspaper called it ODM: Organic Dance Music. A term that fits well. Even if it's hard to pin down JRBB's music - as it is so unique. There is no other band like this. But there is growing new scene of musicians that combine Jazz with electronic styles: Artists like The comet is coming, Kemasi Washington, Moses Boyd, Yussef Kamaal, ... All of the JRBB's members are in their end 20ies and studied Jazz at international high profile jazz universities. Leonhard Kuhn is the composer and arranger of most of JRBBs music and trombonist Roman Sladek is the band leader and producer. The four compositions on Moebius Strip are all based on a straight 4/4 beat pattern (that has been sound designed by Munich's upcoming house producers COEO). Over that rhythmic base JRBB expand their ostinato-horn/bass patterns that often start with simple one tone unisono lines, but slowly grow into huge, emotive, complex structured arrangements. Imitating the structures of dance tracks with breakdowns and DJ tool dynamics, but going much further. In JRBB's compositions you can hear influences from certain late 1960 Hardbob music, as well as 1970ies Jazzfunk and Modern Jazz and certain artists that came out of New York's Knitting Factory scene from the 1990ies. In Germany there is already a buzz for JRBB's energetic live shows. Last year they played more then 90 shows. Creating huge euphoria wherever they come on stage. The buzz reached the artistic directors of Lincoln Center in New York: the holy place of Jazz in the USA. The director Meera Dugal invited JRBB. And so in August 2016 the band played there and was euphorically received by press and audience. Lincoln Center impresario Meera Dugal talked to The New York Music Daily about the band: „Who here has heard German techno big band jazz before? This was a first for me! And I have to say: This large scale German ensemble is surprising, considering how individualistic, cutting-edge and irrepressibly fun they are – their instrumentation follows the standard big band jazz model. Stylistically, they're all over the map. This seventeen-piece outfit validated their reputation as one of the world's most distinctive and adrenalizing dance outfits.“

The First Congress of Qur'anic Translation and Interpretation
The Quran, literally meaning “the recitation”, is the central religious text of Islam, which was verbally revealed by God to Prophet Muhammad. The book employs many stylistic, linguistic & rhetorical features that result in an effective and sublime style. This use of linguistic and rhetorical features challenges the translators of the holy Quran, who try to convey the intended meaning of the Quranic Verses. In the Islamic Republic of ran, the first Congress of Quran Translation is held in one of its prominent universities, hosting a number of translators of the book into languages such as Chinese, French, Russian, German, English and many other ones. An issue of concern, raised during this congress was the ill will of some sects being reflected in their interpretation of Quran, while the original text of this holy book has been immune to any distortion since its revelation more than 1400 years ago. Professor Mohammad Khavaninzade from Tabataba'i University in Tehran warned that " these Wahabi translations, which are being carried out with Saudi oil money support, dramatically present a twisted and false account of our Prophet and Imams' teachings. If we are to present the true Islam to the world, there's no other choice than doing the translations and interpretations ourselves." The congress enjoyed the presence of Iranian officials who admired the core message of this event and its contributions to making accurate and precise translations and interpretations of Quran, more accessible. According to official reports, the highest number of translations and interpretations among religious scripts belongs to holy Quran, which has been translated to over 145 different languages. This congress being the first of its kind signifies Islamic scholars' initiative to once again reiterate referencing to true and righteous translations and interpretations of this holy book.

Mini-Symposium: Collected Works: The Concept of the Corpus
February 5, 2015 How do scholars define and organize bodies of work? For art historians, the effort to delimit categories and boundaries among objects is typically based on their apparent similarities and differences, whether visual, stylistic, material, or cultural. This mini-symposium, the sixth in our annual series, builds thematically upon previously examined topics. It brings together a diverse group of scholars and specialists whose work has transformed and refined the concept of the corpus in the textile arts and in the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

Himalayan Connections - Panel 6 Visual and Literary Representations
This workshop interrogates the notion of Himalayan Studies writ large, foregrounding connections between academic disciplines, local geographies, and trajectories of study over time. Our collective considerations will highlight links across the landscapes of Himalayan research while considering the often-contested nature of "Himalaya" as an analytical category. We hope this attention to the diverse interests that comprise contemporary Himalayan Studies will lead to new insights and collaborative research platforms. Organized by Andrew Quintman (Religious Studies) and Sara Shneiderman (Anthropology). Participants reflect the multidisciplinary nature of work in the region, including scholars from Asia, Europe, and North America, who together span the academic fields of Anthropology, Art History, Conservation Biology, Development Studies, Environmental Studies, History, Political Science, and Religious Studies. The workshop also includes a broad group of Yale faculty from across the university, representing the departments and schools of Anthropology, Forestry and Environmental Studies, History, History of Art, and Religious Studies. http://himalayanconnections2013.commons.yale.edu/ Panel 6 Visual and Literary Representations: What do we see when we look at the Himalaya? What kinds of strategies and techniques have people in the Himalaya used over time to represent themselves, their aspirations, beliefs, identities, etc? How have different disciplines emphasized specific forms of self-representation in their own processes of scholarly representation? What kinds of materials and objects come to the fore and shape both scholarly and popular understandings of the region? What kinds of links or gaps exist between disciplinary approaches to visual, literary, linguistic representation?

Writing a Biography: Books, Examples, How To, Guidelines, Interview Questions (1998)
The sciences of psychology and sociology were ascendant at the turn of the 20th century, and would heavily influence the new century’s biographies.[6] The demise of the "great man" theory of history was indicative of the emerging mindset. Human behavior would be explained through Darwinian theories. "Sociological" biographies conceived of their subjects' actions as the result of the environment, and tended to downplay individuality. The development of psychoanalysis led to a more penetrating and comprehensive understanding of the biographical subject, and induced biographers to give more emphasis to childhood and adolescence. Clearly these psychological ideas were changing the way biographies were written, as a culture of autobiography developed in which the telling of one's own story became a form of therapy.[5] The conventional concept of heroes and narratives of success disappeared in the obsession with psychological explorations of personality. British critic Lytton Strachey revolutionized the art of biographical writing with his 1918 work Eminent Victorians, consisting of biographies of four leading figures from the Victorian era, Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Arnold and General Gordon.[10] Strachey set out to breathe life into the Victorian era for future generations to read. Up until this point, as Strachey remarked in the preface, Victorian biographies had been "as familiar as the cortège of the undertaker", and wore the same air of "slow, funereal barbarism." Strachey defied the tradition of "two fat volumes....of undigested masses of material" and took aim at the four iconic figures. His narrative demolished the myths that had built up around these cherished national heroes, whom he regarded as no better than a "set of mouth bungled hypocrites". The book achieved worldwide fame, due to its irreverent and witty style, its concise and factually accurate nature, and its artistic prose.[11] In the 1920s and '30s, biographical writers sought to capitalize on Strachey's popularity by imitating his style. This new school featured iconoclasts, scientific analysts, and fictional biographers and included Gamaliel Bradford, André Maurois, and Emil Ludwig, among others. Robert Graves (I, Claudius, 1934) stood out among those following Strachey's model of "debunking biographies." The trend in literary biography was accompanied in popular biography by a sort of "celebrity voyeurism", in the early decades of the century. This latter form's appeal to readers was based on curiosity more than morality or patriotism. By World War I, cheap hard-cover reprints had become popular. The decades of the 1920s witnessed a biographical "boom." The feminist scholar Carolyn Heilbrun observed that women's biographies and autobiographies began to change character during the second wave of feminist activism. She cited Nancy Milford's 1970 biography Zelda, as the "beginning of a new period of women's biography, because "[only] in 1970 were we ready to read not that Zelda had destroyed Fitzgerald, but Fitzgerald her: he had usurped her narrative." Heilbrun named 1973 as the turning point in women's autobiography, with the publication of May Sarton's Journal of a Solitude, for that was the first instance where a woman told her life story, not as finding "beauty even in pain" and transforming "rage into spiritual acceptance," but acknowledging what had previously been forbidden to women: their pain, their rage, and their "open admission of the desire for power and control over one's life." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biography

Archaeology and History of Art: study of Russian arms and armor
Archaeology and History of Art: Different Methodologies for the Common Purpose: study of Russian arms and armor Alexander Zhilin STATE HISTORICAL MUSEUM As scientific disciplines, archaeology and history of art often share the same interests. Many material sources are archaeological monuments and works of art at the same time. Ancient Russian arms and armor are being studied in interdisciplinary space. Methods of archaeology are mostly stratigraphy and typology. History of art has its “three whales” of methodology: depiction, analysis and comparative analysis. Sometimes both of the disciplines appeal to the term “style” which can be much undetermined. So called “big styles” are determined on the materials deriving from Western European territories and so are not very reliable in researches connected with, for example, Ancient Rus. In addition, there are many cases when a big number of new styles are being presented by scientists – not “big” but local styles, brought to life by studying of different material sources. It seems that sometimes the only way to learn all the information about material sources is to unite these methodologies. In my studies, I applied methods of art history to the material that traditionally is considered as purely archaeological: Russian arms and armor of the 9th – 15th centuries. Items of different categories (swords, battle-axes, helmets and so on) were placed in several stylistic groups according to their decoration (geometric, abstract, floral, animal, anthropological, and mixed groups). Comparison of typological and stylistic divisions of arms and armor helps to clarify ideas about the time of existence of things and the development of their decoration.
