Lecture by Anouk Kruithof
This lecture was recorded on February 6, 2014, in Timken Lecture Hall on the San Francisco campus of California College of the Arts as part of the college's Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program. Kruithof, a Dutch artist born in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, considers photography as a starting point of infinite possibilities. Research in the form of interviews, temporary installations, and performative interactions with unknown people and space form the basis of her photographs. In March 2014 she

John Haldon, Princeton University: History, Remote Sensing, and GIS - The Avkat Survey Project PDF
This talk introduces briefly the Avkat Archaeological Survey, a collaborative research project in north-central Anatolia which seeks to integrate a number of different approaches to studying the past, using recent technological advances to integrate disparate datasets into a cohesive framework of analysis. From the 1980s, there has been continued development of methodologies of archaeological field survey, as well as remote sensing techniques ranging from ground-penetrating radar to airborne rad

Problem Based Learning tasks in Economic Growth: growth analysis and policy
Student handout outlining a PBL (Problem Based Learning) task on a final year course on economic growth, growth analysis and policy.
Transportation and Spatial Modelling
The objective is to get insight and practice in the design and use of mathematical models for the estimation of transport demand in the framework of major strategic transportation planning. The course consists of a number of lectures and several exercises. Study Goals: 1. Insight in the function of mathematical models in transportation and spatial planning; 2. Knowledge of theoretical backgrounds of models; 3. Knowledge of application areas of models; 4. Ability to develop one's own plan of anal
Distance Learning Material
The materials provided are taken from three postgraduate modules which students study as part of the School's distance learning MA degree programmes in 'Literary Linguistics', 'Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching' and 'Modern English Language'. Our courses generally consist of 10 units which cover the key areas of study within particular disciplines, in conjunction with material documenting the latest developments within each field. The 'Descriptive Linguistic
Economics of Law: module outline
A module outline for a course on the Economics of Law delivered by Professor Antony Dnes at the Central European University. It is typical of a modern law and economics syllabus. The course provides an overview of standard models of the economic analysis of law, based on common-law and civil-law countries: studying property rights, contracts, torts, crime, legal costs regimes, and litigation issues from an economic perspective.
The Slave Trade
The slave trade touched the lives of people around the globe, explains Colonial Williamsburg's Educational Program Development director Bill White.
Retailing in Leeds - Consumer Shopping preferences
Leeds is a major city in the UK and as such is a magnet for shoppers from the surrounding region. Around 1.7 to 1.9 million people are in the catchment area as shoppers in Leeds city centre. Consequently retail is an important business for Leeds. John Temperley Senior Lecturer in Marketing in the Business School and a retail specialist, explains the choices that face consumers and what their preferences are, based on research by students sponsored by Leeds city centre management. The results ar

4.2 The piezoelectric effect at the atomic scale It has been mentioned above that by changing the state of polarisation of a piezoelectric material we can generate movement, and vice versa. Let's examine a little more deeply what is meant by ‘state of polarisation’ and how we can maximise its effect to get the best out of electrically controlled micro-actuators. In order to electrically polarise a material we need, by definition, to cause a separation of charges within the material. The more we can do this the greater the d

Topics include gains from trade, Ricardian models of technological differences, Heckscher-Ohlin models of factor endowment differences, intermediate input trade, wage inequality, imperfect competition, firm heterogeneity, multinational firms, international organization of production, dynamics, trade po
The Hazor Excavations in memory of Yigael Yadin: Zooarchaeological Analyses This dataset represents the zooarchaeological identification and analysis conducted by Justin Lev-Tov as part of the Hazor Excavations in memory of Yigael Yadin . The majority of the faunal remains come from Late Bronze Age and Iron Age contexts. These ongoing excavations are led and directed by Professor Amnon Ben-Tor of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. The majority of the excavation staff as well as the dire
