AbstractKnowing the history of craft and the material traditions are important to making my work. I insist on having this metalsmithing label, and I purposely challenge and subvert the discourse of what a metalsmith is. As a metalsmith I investigate like an archaeologist, and I search for objects and people that reflect the history of post colonialism in America. I had to take a critical look at the effects of slavery had on this country. How this country was built with was on the backs of slaves. History excludes working class minorities: The faceless and nameless who worked the land picking cotton, digging coal, and cleaning ditches.

A tune to the teatro: the relationship between Spanish theatre of the golden age and modern day musicBrown, Emily G. (2019-05)For my thesis, I have decided to study Miguel de Cervantes’ famous play, “El retablo de las maravillas”, and choose specific, key scenes and interpret them through song. I will be discussing the significance of the themes of the play and how the songs I have chosen illustrate the relevance of the play to modern day society. In addition, through the usage of various articles from theatre and music theorists, I will be analyzing the role and importance of music in theatre and how music tells a story. At the conclusion, I will explain the connections of contemporary music and old theatre and how the play relates to and is meaningful to the modern day.
Don’t keep it bottled up: an analysis of black glass wine bottles at Historic Huguenot Street New Paltz, NYSlater, Reuben (2019-05)Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz New York has been a site of human activity stretching back well over nine thousand years, including the Native American Munsee speakers and the French Huguenots who settled New Paltz in 1677. Archaeological excavations over the past twenty years have helped to uncover the rich prehistory and history at the site. In this paper I introduce and examine seventeenth century English black glass wine bottles, as objects of analysis that help illuminate the material culture and foodways of these early Huguenots. Furthermore, I demonstrate how an analysis of this material culture and their foodways, excavated from Historic Huguenot Street builds a data set on the social and economic lives of the Huguenots that the written record does not. This paper will draw heavily from the theoretical framework of Louis Binford’s trinomic categorization of artifacts into the ideotechnic, sociotechnic and technomic spheres to analyze the artifacts in question and gain insight on the interaction between the Huguenots and the world around them.
Comedy and tragedy : a history of theatre as a reflection of social identityO'Grady, Ryan (2020-05)In The Poetics, Aristotle outlines the origins and history of Greek theatrical performance to set up his analysis of Tragedy as the successor to the Epic poem...As such, Aristotle, although most likely unintentional, frames Comedy and Tragedy as two genres that share little to no similarities other than being forms of theatrical performance. I acknowledge the two genres possess many differences in terms of plot structure, staging and the audience's emotional response, but these differences do not make them inherently oppositional. In fact, my paper will hopefully show by analyzing how Tragedy and Comedy functioned during eras when the theatre was a central artform in society--Greece, Rome, Renaissance England, and the post-WWII Theatre of the Absurd--that not only do these two genres share many similarities as art forms, but they also share the same communal function by reinforcing the ideologies of the time period.
