Does It Translate

by Aoran Peng, Does It Translate Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Does It Translate books, Design theory and methodology has had concept generation and selection as one of its focuses due to their link to students' creative and innovative abilities. However, much of the literature has focused on its application and response in sample populations in the United States. This is problematic because the demand for more innovative and creative individuals is needed on a global scale. For example, in Morocco, high unemployment rate in the youth population is one of the reasons why its inhabitants seek to improve themselves. To do so, there have been an increase in programs that aim to promote entrepreneurship, innovation, and design thinking in Morocco. Yet there is limited evidence on how the findings of this research transfer to Moroccan culture. In response to this, the thesis was developed to identify similarities and differences in concept generation and screening practices and performances between a U.S. and a Moroccan student population. In addition, it sought to identify the role of risk taking in concept generation and screening practices in a Moroccan student sample. In order to accomplish this, data was captured during a two-day workshop held in Marrakech, Morocco with 40 students through a partnership with Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakech, Morocco. The same workshop format, timeframe, design task, and administrators were used at both locations as a previous study conducted with a U.S. student sample. Specifically, during the workshop, the participants were asked to generate as many concepts as possible for a new, innovative product that can froth milk in a short amount of time with minimal instruction. The participants were separated into three to four people teams, where they generated concepts individually, and then exchanged their ideas as a group for evaluation. The results of this thesis showed that while the U.S. student sample produced a higher number of ideas on average than the Moroccan sample, the quality of the ideas generated between these two samples was not significantly different. U.S. females were found to produce more ideas (idea fluency) than U.S. male participants, although this gender difference was not observed for the Moroccan sample. In addition, ownership was shown to transcend culture for ideas perceived by team members to have little to no future value in the design process. And finally, ideas with low goodness were found to have a higher probability of passing concept screening if it was evaluated by its owner for both populations. This contributes to the understanding of concept generation, showing that culture may play a role in affecting the quantity (idea fluency) but not the quality (idea goodness) of concept generation. It may also help to show that idea goodness and ownership bias may impact concept screening preferences regardless of the cultural background of the participants. The second goal of this thesis was to investigate the impact of risk-taking on the concept generation and screening abilities of the Moroccan student sample. It was achieved by exploring the impact of the four factors of preference for creativity and one factor of willingness to take risks on concept generation and screening. The results showed that individuals in the Moroccan sample with higher levels of conscientiousness, lower levels of team centrality and influence, and higher levels of willingness to take risks will have a higher idea fluency. On the other hand, for each idea screened, it was found that higher levels of idea goodness and agreeableness result in a higher probability that an idea passes concept screening for further consideration. In addition, it was found that for ideas owned by others, higher levels of agreeableness and neuroticism of the evaluator would result in higher probability that the idea passes concept screening for further consideration. This contributes to a better understanding on the concept generation and screening practices of Moroccan students. As a whole, this thesis provides some of the first empirical evidence on the cultural differences in concept generation and screening practices between a U.S. and Moroccan student populations. It also provides one of the first attempt at investigating how risk-taking impacts the concept generation and screening habits of Moroccan students. The results from this thesis can be used to aid int he development of future teaching methods relating to the creative design process in Morocco, as well as help the adaption of existing design methodologies for Moroccan students.

Arab Modernism As World Cinema

by Peter Limbrick, Arab Modernism As World Cinema Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Arab Modernism As World Cinema books, Arab Modernism as World Cinema explores the radically beautiful films of Moroccan filmmaker Moumen Smihi, demonstrating the importance of Moroccan and Arab film cultures in histories of world cinema. Addressing the legacy of the Nahda or “Arab Renaissance” of the nineteenth and early twentieth century—when Arab writers and artists reenergized Arab culture by engaging with other languages and societies—Peter Limbrick argues that Smihi’s films take up the spirit of the Nahda for a new age. Examining Smihi’s oeuvre, which enacts an exchange of images and ideas between Arab and non-Arab cultures, Limbrick rethinks the relation of Arab cinema to modernism and further engages debates about the use of modernist forms by filmmakers in the Global South. This original study offers new routes for thinking about world cinema and modernism in the Middle East and North Africa, and about Arab cinema in the world.

Generations Of Dissent

by Alexa Firat, Generations Of Dissent Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Generations Of Dissent books, Situated in the fields of contemporary literary and cultural studies, the ten essays collected in Generations of Dissent shed light on the artistic creativity, cultural production, intellectual movements, and acts of political dissidence across the Middle East and North Africa. Born of the contributors’ research on dissidence and state co-option in a variety of artistic and creative fields, the volume’s core themes reflect the notion that the recent Arab uprisings did not appear in a cultural, political, or historical vacuum. Rather than focus on how protestors "finally" broke the walls of fear created by authoritarian regimes in the region, these essays show that the uprisings were rooted in multiple generations and various acts of resistance decades prior to 2010–11. Firat and Taleghani’s volume maps the complicated trajectories of artistic and creative dissent across time and space, showing how artists have challenged institutions and governments over the past six decades.

Sensuous Cinema

by Kaya Davies Hayon, Sensuous Cinema Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sensuous Cinema books, Sensuous Cinema: The Body in Contemporary Maghrebi Film examines a cluster of recent films that feature Maghrebi(-French) people and position corporeality as a site through which subjectivity and self-other relations are constituted and experienced. These films are set in and between the countries of the Maghreb, France and, to a lesser degree, Switzerland, and often adopt a sensual aesthetic that prioritizes embodied knowledge, the interrelation of the senses and the material realities of emotional experience. However, despite the importance of the body in these films, no study to date has taken corporeality as its primary point of concern. This new addition to the Thinking Cinema series interweaves corporeal phenomenology with theological and feminist scholarship on the body from the Maghreb and the Middle East to examine how Maghrebi(-French) people of different genders, ethnicities, sexualities, ages and classes have been represented corporeally in contemporary Maghrebi and French cinemas. Via detailed textual and phenomenological analyses of films such as Red Satin (Amari 2002), Exiles (Gatlif 2004), Couscous (Kechiche 2007) and Salvation Army (Taïa 2014), Kaya Hayon Davies conveys the pivotal role that corporeality plays in articulating identity and the emotions in these films.
