Szabist civilization 4 written word

  1. 1. The Importance of the Written WordMonday, February 6, 2012
  2. 2. Surah al-Alaq (Chapter 96, Verses 1-5) Read in the Name of thy Sustainer, who has created (2) created man out of a germ-cell (3) Read - for thy Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One (4) who has taught [man] the use of the pen (5) taught man what he did not knowMonday, February 6, 2012
  3. 3. Parchment: thin writing or drawing sheet prepared from the skin of a sheep or goat. Parchment was used as early as 2nd century BCE in Rome and the Near East. The skin is dehaired with lime then scraped, rubbed, and polished with abrasives (pumice) and fillers (chalk or talc) on one side to provide a smooth writing surface. Thin translucent sheets of parchment made from stillborn or newly born calves or lambs are called vellum. Paper: A thin, man-made sheet of matted cellulose fibers. Paper sheets are molded from a slurry of macerated fibers. The technique for making early handmade paper from vegetable fibers was patented in 105 CE by Tsai Lun in China. Ancient Egyptians made papyrus from coarse fiber strips of the paper reed plant. Paper is made from a variety of cellulose sources, such as grass, linen, cotton, wood, paper mulberry, straw, bagasse, esparto, bamboo, and jute. Good quality paper contains a high proportion of cellulose, such as those made from cotton or linen rags. Poor quality paper, such as produced by mechanical pulping of wood chips, contains one or more of the following: lignin, residual chlorine from bleaching, or excess alum from sizing. Each of these components increases the acidity of the paper leading to the decomposition of the cellulose fibers.Monday, February 6, 2012

  31. 31. Research Proposal DUE: February 20 (A) & 23 (B) Pick a research topic based within the subject of this course. Proposals should include the following: * A short summary (about 800 words) of the topic which will include some background of your research area and clearly articulates your research question. * An annotated bibliography of at least seven sources to be used in your paper. Annotated bibliographies contain a full citation of sources used and in 2-3 sentences explain the content of the source and why it is useful for your research. NOTE: Wikipedia and other similar websites (i.e. those that do not have peer review systems) are not acceptable sources of research.Monday, February 6, 2012
  32. 32. How to Cite There are three manners in which to cite references: 1. Direct Quote: “… attention increasingly shifted towards how artistic practices are conferred with meaning through their presentation and mediation…” (Richter & Wieder, 1) 2. Indirect reference: Current art discourse and art production both place emphasis upon the importance of contextual space in the interpretation of the object. (Richter & Wieder, 1) 3. Longer Quotes (>3.5 lines) In artistic production as well as in theoretical and historical reflection, the attention increasingly shifted towards how artistic practices are conferred with meaning through their presentation and mediation (from aspects of interior design or labeling, to questions of accessibility), and not only through the works themselves.Monday, February 6, 2012
