  1. 1. CONSTRUCTING SAFE SPACES The potential of performing feminist critical utopia analyzed through zine-making

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för kulturvetenskaper

    Author : Louise Mazet; [2019-10-10]
    Keywords : safe space; feminist utopia; performativity; zine-making; environmental activism;

    Abstract : Safe spaces are constructed to offer a space of acceptance to an otherwise marginalized or vulnerable group. This thesis explores the connections between safe spaces and feminist (critical) utopianism through their inherent paradoxality. While safe spaces attempt to make people feel included, they often function through the exclusion of others. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigating In-plane Shear Behaviour of Uncured Unidirectional Prepreg Tapes

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Ming Kai Chea; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Steering of prepreg tows in an automated fibre placement (AFP) process allows geodesic layup trajectory over a doubly-curved surface, as well as the potential to improve the efficiency of composite structures by tailoring their stiffness. However, defects (such as out-of-plane buckling and tow pull off) are commonly generated when the steering radius exceeds a critical limit, which impact the mechanical properties of the finished product.

  3. 3. Digital wellbeing, according to Google

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap

    Author : Daniel Svensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Digital wellbeing; Google; technology; smartphones; science and technology studies; social shaping; Cultural Sciences;

    Abstract : In May 2018, Google presented a new initiative called Digital wellbeing at their annual developer conference, Google I/O. Digital wellbeing consists of part a new design philosophy guiding the company’s products, part a set of tools to improve people’s relationship with digital technology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dispersion management and characterization of ultrashort laser pulses for the optimization of parametric processes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Axel Elfving; [2019]
    Keywords : frequency resolved optical gating; optical parametric amplification; difference frequency generation; nonlinear optics; laser pulse compression; lasers; optics; Technology and Engineering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis set out to continue the development of a short-wave infrared (SWIR) optical parametric amplifier (OPA). The system is based on a Yb-ber chirped pulse amplification (CPA) laser delivering 400 fs long pulses, centered around 1030 nm, at 200 kHz repetition rate and 40 W average power. READ MORE

  5. 5. Unravelingthe molecular mechanism behind metabolic reprogramming caused by alterations of the enzyme PI3-kinase

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Angana Heet Patel; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes play a key role in cancer induction and progression. They directly or indirectly regulate critical metabolic pathways, phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase pathway being frequently activated pathway in cancer. READ MORE
