  1. 1. The Role of Arts in Nordic Society: Health and Lifestyle

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad

    Author : Soledad Zamora; [2019]
    Keywords : Arts; Education; Lifestyle; Society; Sustainable development; Welfare;

    Abstract : The role of arts in both formal and non-formal education has been scientifically demonstrated to create positive outcomes in people to deal with all kinds of social problems in daily life. At present, there are international public and private institutions that support this view, such as the International Arts Education Week, celebrated for the first time by UNESCO on 21-27 May 2012 when not only artists participated, but also educators, researchers, NGO actors, and international associations.

  2. 2. HDR and the Colorist : How new technology affects professionals in the motion picture industry

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Ljud- och musikproduktion

    Author : Jonas Westling; [2019]
    Keywords : HDR; High Dynamic Range; Colorist; Color correction; Color grading; Cinema; Motion picture; Digital video; Film; Postproduction;

    Abstract : By utilizing a Research through Design approach this master thesis studies how technological changes might affect professionals working in the motion picture industry, specifically; how the advent of HDR (High Dynamic Range) affects the colorist. The research questions formulated are the following; (1) How can color grading in HDR be approached? (2) What effect can HDR have on visual modality? (3) What specific affordances can HDR offer the colorist? (4) How can HDR affect the creative space of the colorist? Three of the research questions are derived from the theoretical framework applied in this master thesis; starting with the social semiotic implementation of the term modality (models of reality), the Gibsonian term affordance (possibilities for action and meaning making) and its use in communications research, and lastly; the concept of creative space in motion picture production.

  3. 3. Stability of electron acceptor materials for organic solar cells : a work function study of C60/C70 derivatives and N2200

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik (from 2013)

    Author : Sebastian Ekhagen; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Thin films of the fullerenes PC60BM and PC70BM and the non-fullerene N2200, three popular electron acceptor materials in organic photovoltaics, have been studied, using both the Kelvin probe method as well as ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy. With these methods the work function was measured, as well as the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) onset. READ MORE

  4. 4. Harry Potter and the Fat Stereotypes

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för film och litteratur (IFL)

    Author : Olsson Hanna; [2019]
    Keywords : Harry Potter; Fat Studies; Film Studies; Gender Studies; Children s Films; Young Adult Series; Intersectionality; Fat Stereotypes;

    Abstract : In the field of research within film studies which consider how aspects such as gender or race affect the portrayal of a character, the aspect of characters' body sizes are not always taken into account. By analysing the fat characters in the popular children's and young adult film series about Harry Potter, I bring attention to the fact that the use of stereotypes is significant in these characterisations, and further contributes to the marginalisation of this particular group of people.

  5. 5. Model of Thermal EHL Based on Navier-Stokes Equations : Effects of Asperities and Extreme Loads

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Marko Tošić; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A common approach in numerical studies of elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) is based on solving the Reynolds equation that governs pressure distribution in thin lubricant films. The Reynolds equation is derived from the Navier-Stokes equations by taking assumptions that are considered valid when the thickness of the lubricant film is much smaller than its length. READ MORE
