1. Niebaum, Jens. "St. Peter’s and Its Palace: A Conflictual Relationship, ca. 1505–46" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p526316_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The relationship between the New St. Peter’s and the adjacent Papal Palace is a particularly telling example of the difficulties that could arise between a plan composed according to its proper architectural logic and the future edifice’s physical surroundings. The paper will examine this conflictual coexistence, focusing on three moments of its long history: first, the strategies Bramante used to override the limitations caused by the existence of the Benediction Loggia (ceremonially a part of the Palace) towards the Piazza; second, the strange tension in Antonio da Sangallo’s earlier projects that prove to be rather utopian, providing for a church up to 420 meters in length, but do not lose the reality of its surroundings completely out of sight; third, the problem of the Cappella Paolina built by Sangallo for Paul III but strangely blinded-out by himself in his great wooden model for the basilica.

Abstract: The emergence of the welfare state provided a countervailing force against the social ills of industrial production and capital markets, namely economic inequality. However, issues of legitimate pay and income inequality spark bitter polarizations, public debates and protests throughout the history of industrial development. In this paper, we investigate the possibility that attitudes are not merely a product of individual self-interest based on location in the status hierarchy, or of the level of development in terms of wealth of an individual’s home country. We test hypotheses about the consequences of the degree of development of a country's welfare institutions (welfarism) on individual attitudes. Specifically, we seek to identify what are the core attractions that lead citizens of welfare states to accept the welfare state as a package, including the less appealing policies. Despite ideological and institutional theoretical perspectives, we find that individual attitudes are attracted to the returns of the welfare state and envy of those who have more. This finding is true in the broadest range of countries investigated to date in either the legitimate pay or welfare state research traditions using ISSP data (46 countries; 112 country-time points). We conclude that resource acquisition as opposed to equality or social cohesions drive the impact of welfare state institutions on individual attitudes.

3. Goss, Brian. ""Taking Cover from Progress: Michael Winterbottom's Code 46"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p74639_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This essay examines director Michael Winterbottom’s film, Code 46 (2003, United Kingdom) within a pre-standing tradition of social-political interpretation of film (eg, Miller 1990; Ryan and Kellner 1988; Wood 1998). Code 46 fits uneasily within the science-fiction genre as it is set in a near future of global integration and environmental catastrophe. The ferociously classist social order is governed by a panoptic corporation, The Sphinx, that also regulates gene-environment interactions. I argue that Winterbottom’s film engages with a stringent cross-examination of “The Narrative of Progress” as it intersects with globalization. In particular, the narrative and mise-en-scene presents some of the enabling and --- with greater emphasis --- the dystopic possibilities that are implicit within liberalism that is channeled through capitalism with its concomitant class striation. Code 46 also engages with the Oedipal narrative that informs the critical gaze that film directs at the future/present and its implications for gender and the internalization of bureaucratic authority.
