Abstract"This project, and its resulting exhibition, which includes text and images, is dedicated to those souls who are navigating the Sahara as well as those that have been lost among its dunes where their bodies 'instantly mummified'. Throughout, the intent of the project has been to identify traces of these migrants' journey from Africa into Europe; through data and policy analysis which are woven together with the images and texts so as to relate fragmentary memories of the journey. Given that words cannot express certain elements of the migratory condition, and statistical data can only represent the aggregations and that which is recorded, the images help provide the deeper insights that enable us to decipher such a complex phenomenon. Recognizing the imperative to sketch out a "new politics of truth, one founded in contingency and self-transformation," it is our aim to move away from a conventional interpretation of migration, which relegates the discussion to the dim space between illegality and victimhood."--Lorenzo Rinelli's academia.edu webpage.

Re-envisioning the 1876 Centennial Exhibition: New Exhibit Solutions for an Old Interpretive ProblemBruggeman, Seth C., 1975-; Winling, LaDale (Temple University. Libraries, 2011)This paper takes a fresh look at the Centennial Exhibition of 1876 and exhibits that interpret it, and suggests new exhibit strategies to re-interpret this complicated moment in American history.
PENNHURST: AN EXPLORATION OF EXHIBITION AND COLLECTION CARE INSIDE A HAUNTED ASYLUMLowe, Hilary Iris; Bruggeman, Seth C., 1975-; Flanders, Lowell (Temple University. Libraries, 2017)This study is an imaginative exercise which explores the use of historic artifacts at the haunted attraction Pennhurst Asylum in Spring City, Pennsylvania. It is understood here that the use of historic artifacts from the former Pennhurst State School within Pennhurst Asylum inevitably tethers the attraction to the difficult history of Pennhurst State School. This study explores the convergence of dark tourism, exhibiting difficult history, and performance as historical interpretation. Within the context of collections management and public history, Pennhurst Asylum acts as a case study exploring what can happen when difficult history is exploited and commodified.
Mechanically Robust Ordered Nanocomposites Exhibiting a NIR BandgapWunder, Stephanie L.; Stanley, Robert J.; Jansen Varnum, Susan; Brunette, Christine (Temple University. Libraries, 2009)This dissertation reports a simple route to synthesis nanostructured composites by immobilizing colloidal crystals (CCs) of monodisperse SiO2 spheres in crosslinked polymer network. The resulting ordered nanocomposites exhibited the highest modulus reported yet, to the best of our knowledge, for similar materials. The ordered nanocomposites were optically active and the Bragg diffracted light in a NIR region and wavelength of the Bragg peak could be tuned simply by changing the silica concentration in the composite. They also exhibited intense angle dependent iridescence.
