Children and Cultural Capital in the Americas
A class of child artists in Mexico, a ship full of child refugees from Spain, classrooms of child pageant actors, and a pair of boy ambassadors revealed facets of hemispheric politics in the Good Neighbor era. Culture-makers in the Americas tuned into to children as producers of cultural capital to advance their transnational projects. In many instances, prevailing conceptions of children as innocent, primitive, dependent, and underdeveloped informed perceptions of Latin America as an infantilized region, a lesser "Other Americas" on the continent. In other cases, children's interventions in the cultural politics, economic projects, and diplomatic endeavors of the interwar period revealed that Latin American children saw themselves as modern, professional, participants in forging inter-American relationships.

Conceptualized as a tool to expand creativity, questioning, and experimentation in arts research, Disruption and Convergences: Generating New Conversations through Arts Research offers timely narratives, musings, and descriptions of experimental and scholarly practice that ignite new creative considerations for graduate students and aspiring arts research practitioners.

The book features a collection of practice-based research projects for which the experiential unfolding leads to unexpected outcomes. In its openness and generativity, this mode of questioning removes the need for conclusive findings. Prominent threads that emerged from the collection encompass collaboration and interconnectedness, disputed and shared spaces, and transformation through storytelling. Contributors to the book address ways of knowing that complicate familiar categories, learning with and listening to the fragile, the provisional, and heralding unthought futurity.

Disruption and Convergences offers a scholarly and artistic exchange through dialogues between contributors and invites artful and multisensorial expressions, imaginative experimentations, poetic and critical propositions that carry the voices of creators at different stages in their research careers. This form of publication is itself an international symposium of sorts, and therefore an opportunity for readers to engage in wide-ranging approaches to making, writing, and arts thinking.

Contributors are: Cathy Adams, Jelena Aleksic, Carolina Bergonzoni, Rébecca Bourgault, Rachel Epp Buller, Aurora Del Rio, Christine D’Onofrio, Hannah L. Drake, Emese Hall, Damali Ibrek, Rabeya Jalil, Estée Klar, Linda E. Kourkoulis, David LeRue, Stephanie Loveless, Katri Naukkarinen, Yolanda M. Manora, Rachel Payne, Patti Pente, Nicole Rallis, Roni Raviv, Catherine M. Roach, Catherine Rosamond, Myrtle Sodhi and Alex Wexler.
Sound-Worlds of Central Europe explores the sound-world of early modern Silesia via the writings of humanists active there in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries who both observed musical culture and actively participated in it: a poet, a publisher, a pedagogue, a physician, a historian, and a regionalist. Such an approach makes it possible to reconstruct their perceptions and understandings of music—a constitutive element of this community. As these authors concentrated more on the representation of music than the art itself, the book reflects the collective memory of the republic of scholars: their individual and common imaginarium.
Damascus under the Mamlūk sultans (1260–1516 CE)
The goals and tactics of a state's ruling elite influence its artistic and architectural output, shaping the overall characteristics, orientation, and themes of its creations. Architecture reflects political ideology and historical events, showcasing the power and cultural values of the state, with implications for politics and authority.
This book presents a comprehensive and nuanced exploration of the intricate interplay between art, politics, and religion within the architectural legacy of Mamluk Damascus. It sheds light on how these dynamics enrich our comprehension of the past and contribute to contemporary dialogues concerning the preservation of cultural heritage.

Contemporary art must get inspiration from somewhere. In Tea, Automatons, and Time Machines, the subculture of Steampunk art is studied in relation to art history. Addressing three main topics within social and environmental justice, a comparison of art styles and creativity stems from an artist’s passion within popular culture.

Using arts-based research methods and personal introspection viewed through the lens of nostalgia, a unique perspective of art history studies comes to life. Nostalgia, being primarily a psychological study, is used as a lens to view art, culture, and memoir into a complete research project.

We live in a world in need of change. Historically, artists have provided a means for change through their work and the lives they choose to live. The vastness of art history provides plenty of room for inspiration and interpretation. In this study, the contemporary sub-culture of Steampunk looks nostalgically at Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco eras in a way that paves the way for social change and environmental preservation using fantasy, cos-play, and art to demonstrate needed changes. Through the art and culture of Steampunk, we explore areas that could use improvement in our modern world, and yet, they do tie in with similar occurrences of the past. We find that we’re not that different but with art and demonstration, we too, can make positive changes for our future.
