1. Ross, Elizabeth. "Points of View and an Indulgenced View in Mamluk Jerusalem" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p524249_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: From a certain spot on the Mount of Olives, fifteenth-century Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem earned indulgences for looking out on holy sites that the city’s Muslim rulers forbid them to visit. The first topographically accurate view of Jerusalem, published in a highly influential 1486 pilgrimage account, pictures the city from an identifiable vantage near the indulgenced one. The artist of this influential view takes a passing, partisan moment of the Franciscan-designed pilgrimage itinerary and fixes it in place through print as Jerusalem, truly depicted. Felix Fabri, a pilgrim who traveled with the artist and author of the 1486 book, wrote several books of his own where he uses description of Islamic architecture to lament the Muslim occupation. The artist of the 1486 view does the same. He pictures the city with a double purpose that offers up the center of sacred history and an object lesson on the contemporary threat.

Abstract: Social media platforms, such as Twitter, are changing the way people consume broadcast television media. For producers, social media metrics provide new insights and challenge incumbent measuring instruments, such as viewing rates. Within academia, Twitter’s relevance for audience research has developed only recently, whereby both opportunities and pitfalls are defined. In this paper, we depart from the idea that viewing rates and Twitter data enrich one another. We provide a conceptual and empirical comparison between both measures. Twitter data deepens our understanding of the viewing audience and viewing rates concurrently allow us to account for the relative importance of the tweeting audience. The data shows interesting inverse relations between ratings and Twitter traction for particular television programs, revealing low ratings in conjunction with high traction on Twitter and vice versa. Future endeavors for audience research and the role of social media data in social sciences are discussed.

Abstract: Police and community relations have historically been tenuous. Prior literature points to a police socialization that occurs whereby police officers develop and utilize a suspicious or cautious orientation when they interact with citizens. Recent high profile events in Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, Maryland, and New York City, among others, appear to have galvanized relations between police and citizens -- particularly minority citizens -- even further. What is often left out of the public discourse and commentary on high profile instances of police use of force against citizens is the perspectives of police officers. This study utilizes qualitative interviews conducted by virtue of a snowball sample of one author's police contacts at different locations throughout the nation. The focus of the study is police officer reaction to the public discourse that follows these high profile cases.

Abstract: The present paper seeks to understand pornography and erotic materials from a motivational viewpoint. Four vignettes of different types of eroticism were shown to participants, and emotional reactions were reported both for if the scenario were viewed alone or with a romantic partner. Emotional reports show that viewing softcore, hardcore, and kinky types of erotic stimuli produce larger amounts of positive affect than negative affect.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: El Greco’s View of Toledo (Metropolitan Museum), the most famous of all Spanish cityscapes, is generally understood as an “emblematic” view of the city, as opposed to the topographical type of cityscape that is more characteristic of Netherlandish draftsmen such as Anton van den Wyngaerde and Georg Hoefnagel (both of whom also recorded profile views of Toledo). The distinction has been common in the literature since Juergen Schulz employed it in his article on Jacopo de’ Barberi’s View of Venice (Art Bulletin, September 1978). El Greco’s picture, however, draws upon both traditions in order to depict an ideal view of the real Toledo, with topographical and other details that only a well-informed resident would understand.
