SSHRC IG awarded 2017: The importance of the body in fashion and the radical adoption of street styles by the elite go back to eighteenth-century Europe. This study examines the effects of the French Revolution on European and American style. It asks how 1790s fashion drastically changed to...
Accounting for Pure Consciousness: An Examination of the Ability of the Representationalist Approach to Phenomenal Consciousness to Account for Pure Consciousness ExperiencesDownload
Any successful theory of phenomenal consciousness must be able to account for all types of phenomenally conscious experience. Representationalist theories of phenomenal consciousness take phenomenally conscious experience to be intentional and explain phenomenally conscious experience in terms...
This study is about a series of operational acts of identification, such as interpretations, categorizations, representations, classifications, through which past materials have acquired their meaning and therefore identity. Furthermore, this meaning-making will be demonstrated always to be...
Competitive Discourse in an Imitational Democracy: The Multifaceted Image of the Opponents in the Online Materials of Russian Political Parties and LeadersDownload
In contemporary Russia, the Internet serves as the most diverse and open platform of sharing and contrasting ideas. While the most life-like imitational democracy elements do manifest themselves to a limited extent in the mainstream print and electronic media, only online do all political forces...
In this thesis, we establish some ergodic theorems related to Ap(G), the Figà-Talamanca-Herz algebra of a locally compact group G. This thesis is divided in two main portions. The first part is primarily concerned with the study of ergodic sequences in Ap(G) and with a newly introduced notion of...
A ﬂag of a ﬁnite dimensional vector space V is a nested sequence of subspaces of V . The symplectic group of V acts on the set of ﬂags of V . We classify the orbits of this action by deﬁning the incidence matrix of a ﬂag of V and show- ing that two ﬂags are in the same orbit precisely when...
Genre and the representation of violence in American Civil War texts by Edmund Wright, John William De Forest, and Henry JamesDownload
This dissertation investigates the relationship between genre and the representation of war-time violence in five texts written during and shortly after the United States Civil War (1861-1865). The texts are The Narrative of Edmund Wright (1864), John William De Forest’s Miss Ravenel’s Conversion...
The present study explores the possibility of systematic acoustic differences that could be used to differentiate ‘homophones’. This study investigates productions of like in western Canadian English, focusing specifically on acoustic characteristics and whether they differ across multiple...
This study explores the meaning of commodification in modern yoga and finds that commodification often contradicts yoga’s ethical principles. Two different analyses of this phenomenon also produce contradictory accounts. One analysis attempts to understand how practitioners experience...
Given an algebraic group G over a field k and a k-algebra R, the role of maximal abelian k-diagonalizable subalgebras (MAD for short) of G(R) is the same as that the split maximal torus play in G(k). Let G be a reductive group such that the derived subgroup is simply connected and let Spec(R) be...
