Migrating Diseases: Triangulating Approaches--Applying Qualitative Inquiry as a Global Endeavor
Understanding qualitative inquiry as a global endeavor and using it in a globalizing context leads to several challenges. Differences in concepts of what qualitative research is may become visible. like interviews may have a different connotation in other cultures, where our interviewees come from. We may have to conduct and analyze interviews differently. These challenges are discussed here on...


Socio-Translational Collaboration in Qualitative Inquiry: The Case of Expert Interviews
In the face of long-standing neglect for issues of multilingualism in qualitative inquiry, this article proposes a novel collaborative approach to coping with translation issues in interviewing. Building on recent efforts at developing a better understanding of linguistic challenges to research methodology, the authors call for the systematic involvement of qualified interpreters and translator...
Qualitative Research and Our Digital Futures
Those who lived through the 1960s recall a time of rapid social change and political turmoil. Commentators discern parallels with present times, citing the Arab Spring, the West’s fiscal crisis, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Social science saw its own upheavals in the 1960s-the emergence of Grounded Theory, postmodernism, and perspectives based on the counter-culture, feminism, and mi...


Like You Know It All: The Power of Godard and Breillat at the 63rd Melbourne International Film Festival (July 31-August 17, 2014)
“As directors such as Godard, Herzog, and Wenders take on 3D, we sense that for this generation of the avant-garde, the goal is no longer to test the audience’s reliance[.]The post Like You Know It All: The Power of Godard and Breillat at the 63rd Melbourne International Film Festival (July 31-August 17, 2014) appeared first on Bright Lights Film Journal....
Strange Voices: Subjectivity and Gender in Forbidden Planet’ s Soundscape of Tomorrow
As the first Hollywood film to employ an all-electronic score, Forbidden Planet (1956) helped cement the association of science-fiction films with electronically produced sounds and music. While sounds lacking real-world referents were crucial for representing sonically the nature of fantastic objects and beings, Louis and Bebe Barron's soundscape also had to serve the more conventional musical...


Before Kong Was King: Competing Methods in Hollywood Underscore
In many histories of American film music, Max Steiner's score for King Kong (1933) marks a new era by establishing norms in original, symphonic underscoring that would dominate Hollywood for decades. Kong's reign, however, eclipses diverse approaches to underscoring practiced at studios before and after its release. In this study, I compare the methods of Max Steiner at RKO and Nathaniel Finsto...
Multiple classes of transcription factors regulate the expression of VASCULAR-RELATED NAC-DOMAIN7, a master switch of xylem vessel differentiation
The secondary cell walls of xylem cells, including vessel elements, provide mechanical strength and contribute to the conduction of water and minerals. VASCULAR-RELATED NAC-DOMAIN7 (VND7) is a NAC-domain transcription factor that regulates the expression of genes required for xylem vessel element formation. Transient expression assays using 68 transcription factors that are expressed during xyl...

That's hip-hop to me!”: Race, space, and temporal logics of authenticity in independent cultural production
In producer-saturated fields such as popular music scenes, claims to and judgments of authenticity are ever salient in contention for limited resources and prestige. By mobilizing meanings attributed to sounds, objects, individuals, and ideas associated with the past, present, or future of a genre, cultural producer groups are distinguished from each other and unified within themselves. Observi...

Making art work: Creative assessment as boundary work
Conflict in creative work is sometimes thought to emanate from the contentious personalities of creative workers. Drawing on several months of ethnographic field work at an advertising agency and semi-structured interviews with advertising professionals, I propose an alternate explanation for this antagonism, grounded in creative workers’ and their market-oriented colleagues’ competing defi...
UDP-Arabinopyranose Mutase 3 is Required for Pollen Wall Morphogenesis in Rice (Oryza sativa)
L-Ara is a one of the main constituents of cell wall polysaccharides including pectic rhamnogalacturonan I (RG-I), glucuronoarabinoxylans (GAX), and other glycoproteins. It is found predominantly in the furanose form rather than in the thermodynamically more stable pyranose form. UDP-arabinofuranose (UDP-Araf), rather than UDP-arabinopyranose (UDP-Arap), is a sugar donor for the biosynthesis of...
The Cotton WRKY Transcription Factor GhWRKY17 Functions in Drought and Salt Stress in Transgenic Nicotiana benthamiana through ABA Signalling and the Modulation of Reactive Oxygen Species Production
Drought and high salinity are two major environmental factors that significantly limit the productivity of agricultural crops worldwide. WRKY transcription factors play essential roles in the adaptation of plants to abiotic stresses. However, WRKY genes involved in drought and salt tolerance in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) are largely unknown. Here, a group IId WRKY gene, GhWRKY17, was isolated ...
What's feeling got to do with it? Decoding emotional bottlenecks in the history classroom
The understandings and preconceptions students bring into the history classroom can interfere with student learning. Analyses of student and professor interviews in light of emotional bottlenecks revealed two different, though related, student preconceptions: procedural preconceptions about history as a field of study and pre-existing worldviews that link students’ identities to the past....
