Dysphoric History: A Trans/Historical Approach

Description: Video recording of a presentation by Dr. Gabrielle M.W. Bychowski which unpacks how dysphoria has been an organizing pattern within trans literature since the premodern period, predating the adoption of the term within the modern medical sciences, and she emphasizes the need for critical trans literary and historical theory to better identify and analyze trans history and narratives that have been silenced in archives. The event was organized for LGBTQ History Month and held virtually on November 14, 2022.

Impact of TAT Card Selection on Evaluation of Object Relations Functioning Following Childhood Physical Abuse

Description: The purpose of this study is to show principles of TAT card pull are applicable to object relations theory, and card pull effects are greater in subjects with greater impairments. Stories of physically abused and control child and adolescent subjects were evaluated on object relations scales of the SCORS (Westen et al., 1985). Scores varied systematically as a function of card stimulus characteristics. Analysis of scales assessing internalization of self supported stimulus inhibition interpretation while scales measuring views of others or individual affective experiences advanced stimulus pull explanation. Abused individuals' response patterns were similar to controls except on CR. Results of this study may increase TAT utility for evaluating object relations functioning by guiding card selection.

Igor Stravinsky's Use of the Bassoon in his Compositions from 1908 to 1948

Description: Igor Stravinsky is widely considered one of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century and a pivotal figure in modernist music. This study analyzed how Stravinsky absorbed the bassoon's solo and ensemble functions which he inherited and later significantly extended the scope of these functions by adapting them to his individual needs. The study concluded that Stravinsky's compositions are and will remain important landmarks in the history of bassoon literature.

Penetrations VII

Description: Recording of Alcides Lanza's Penetrations VII. Penetrations VII (1972-III), the chamber version of Penetrations VI, moves from the individual's memories to a concern for mankind's global memories. This piece also deals with communication...or the lack of it. The performer is at the same time a child and a woman experiencing all the memories of humanity. The accumulated hatred and evil of our human history becomes too much to remember, causing a collapse. However, the piece ends in a rebirth of hope such as children perennially inspire in us all - and a reminder to "listen". The work uses the voices of Meg Sheppard, Alejandro Puente and Alcides Lanza. Some sounds were created using modules created by Hugh Le Caine. Composed at the composer's studio SHELAN, in Montreal, and finalized at the EMS, McGill University.

Bone

Description: Recording of Gerald Siclovan's Bone. Text: "Cacophany" by Marc Christensen, read by the author and Mary M. Miller. Language cut to the bone: the piece begins with an isolated phoneme compressed and looped into a synthesizer-like texture, which gradually expands until it is transformed into the first word of the text. All sounds up to the end of the second stanza are manipulations of the human voice. Language conflated with non-language: the human voice as both means of communication and as instrument of incoherence. Language abandoned and superseded by the din of the world: voices embedded in desultory noise, failing to convey meaning; voices of birds and dogs which, though unpenetrated by human comprehension, at least remain recognizably articulated; voices of insects, which are not even articulated (at least to human perception); and voices of machines, inhabitants of a menacing wonderland, matter devoid of spirt. Among the noises heard in this piece: motorcycles, automobiles, ice cream trucks, the air brake of a school bus, a gasoline-powered generator; an especially obnoxious car alarm; radio junk emanating from automobiles and homes; firecrackers and fireworks; birds, dogs, crickets and cicadas; and of course the omnipresent hiss and rumble of the dystopic industrial world, all recorded out of a window in suburban Detroit.
