1. Sass, Maurice. "Magical Conceptualizations of Performative Images in the Cinquecento: “Image-justice,” “Image-medicine,” and “Image-love"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2020-02-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p525190_index.html>

Abstract: My paper will illustrate three different types of performative images of the Italian Renaissance: frescos that were used to banish the delinquent; pictures that were used to heal people from diseases via their material, iconographical, and formal characteristics; and love gifts that should evoke the love of the person desired. To achieve this aim, I will demonstrate how Renaissance scholars (e.g., Ficino, Paracelsus, Agrippa of Nettesheim, Giordano Bruno) have conceptualized these performances of images, and that the huge amount of alchemical and astrological tracts has been the base for discourses about the power of images within the “ordinary” Renaissance art theory. Furthermore, this will prove how images were thought to receive their magic power in the “era of art” no longer of the cult (legend, typology, etc.), but from hermetic knowledge that allowed the artists to instrumentalize the occult powers of nature for the production of performative images.

Abstract: Hidden figures in rocks and landscapes from Jérôme Bosch to Hendrick Goltzius testify to the interest of Netherlandish artists for the so-called natural image. Far from being reduced to simple optical games, these visual traps are reflections of a sophisticated visual culture and imply fundamental artistic and spiritual issues. Following Hieronymus Bosch and Herri met de Bles, Pieter Bruegel also incorporated hidden images in his landscapes, which have been overlooked by specialists. This paper proposes to address the various forms and artistic issues at stake in the natural and hidden images of the « second Bosch » (Guicciardini) and, in particular, their link to the central questions of imitation (imitation of nature and imitation of art), and to the Christian conception of vision opposing moral blindness and discernment, the ‘peel and the core.’

Abstract: Media reports provide information to consumers and often serve as the bases of their opinions about various social issues, including crime. The use of images in newspaper articles, an otherwise text-based medium, is likely to enhance reporters’ arguments by allowing the reader to visualize the facts being presented in more detail. This study explores how the inclusion of images in newspaper articles relating to homicide cases relates to characteristics of the crime and presentation of the story. Data collection identified 2,885 articles relating to homicide published by The Vancouver Sun between 2004 and 2010. Of these, 1,210 (42%) were accompanied by at least one image. The articles were coded for crime details such as location of the homicide, characteristics of the victim, word count, and mention of drugs or gangs, among others. The associations between these variables and the likelihood that an image would accompany a homicide-related article were identified. The discussion centers on what characteristics make certain articles about homicide more ‘image-worthy’ in the eyes of the media.

"The New Pilgrimage and the Old-Style Image: An Image of Nirvana in Baoguang Temple, Xindu District, During the Late Qing Dynasty" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAS-in-Asia, Kyoto, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, <Not Available>. 2020-02-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1100984_index.html>

Abstract: The mural preserved in Baoguang Temple in the Xindu District dates back to the thirtieth year of Emperor Guangxu reign (circa 1904),which is the last known nirvana image produced during the Chinese imperial period. It was made to commemorate Zhenxiu’s 真修 pilgrimage to India and Sri Lanka as part of a new nation-wide wave of pilgrimages incited by national crisis and by improvements in transportation during the late Qing period. However, different from this revolutionary background, the image seems more conservative: both in its external presentation and its inherent thoughts. The image is made up of three scenes: the Nirvana with Two Sala Trees, the Return to the Source and King Asoka Building the Pagoda. This paper shows that these scenes are mainly borrowed from several illustrations of the traces of the Sakyamuni Buddha’s Manifestation 《释迦如来应化事迹》first published in 1808. It graphically emphasizes Sakyamuni Buddha as he passes over from mortality and returns to Actual Reality Body. This image also illustrates how Avatamsaka Sutra《华严经》is revived during the Qing Dynasty because of support from Emperor Yongzheng(1723-1735).

Abstract: Social psychologists have amassed a large body of work demonstrating that overweight African American women and girls feel better about themselves and have more positive attitudes about their bodies than do overweight females from other racial and ethnic groups. Substantial theoretical work has proposed that elements of African American cultural experience may contribute to these differences. In this paper, we evaluate these arguments by testing whether racial socialization within the family diminishes the influence of body size on the social self esteem of African American adolescent girls. Using a socio-economically diverse sample, we find that respondents with larger body sizes display lower social self esteem but also find that racial socialization moderates this relationship. In families where racial socialization activities are frequent, body size makes little difference in respondents’ social self esteem. In contrast, when families engage in little or no racial socialization, larger girls display significantly lower social self esteem.
