Ripping through a storified place: an exercise in critical breaking

Kravets, Olga
Karababa, Eminegül
This paper is an exercise in critical breaking. We take the promotional material for a newly ‘rejuvenated’ area in Ankara, Turkey, and tear out images and text. This is not to re-assemble a critical story of the urban development project; instead, we seek to mirror the process of its marketing. We explore the dynamic shifting and splintered nationhood constructed and marketed in this tourist site. This project is distinct in embracing its fragmented-ness into what/if space, embodying divergent historical trajectories. It implicates a speculative aspect, which is consequential for the political imagination reflected within the site. We use zine, as a mode of presentation, which with its DIY ethos mounts a polyvocal critique of stagecraft and a feminist-inspired challenge to heritage storytelling.

This paper considers the job (lot) scheduling problem for two-stage flow shops in which the movement of transfer batches (sublots) from the first stage to the next are allowed. Set-up, processing and removal times are considered as separable and independent of the order in which jobs are processed at any of two stages. An optimal transfer batch sizing and scheduling algorithm which has an objective of minimizing the maximum flow time (makespan) is developed and demonstrated by a numerical example.
Comparison of Efficiency of Two dc-to-ac Converters for Grid Connected Solar Applications
Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Yilmaz, Arif (2012-05-26)
In this paper; requirements from grid connected photovoltaic (PV) converters are briefly reviewed. Traditional buck-converter, line-frequency transformer topology is taken as reference, which satisfies all of the requirements imposed by standards and the utility. However, this topology employs a bulky transformer. Furthermore, a large electrolytic capacitor is needed in this circuit, which is expensive and also limits the life of the converter. This is not desirable in modern applications where PV module st...
Application of Project-Based Learning in a Theoretical Course: Process, Difficulties and Recommendations
CODUR, K. Burak; Karatas, Sercin; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2012-01-01)
This paper presents a case study about the application of a project-based learning approach. In this case study, software development projects are performed by the students, using historical software development methods in order to demonstrate evolution of the subject. The presented case study differs from others reported in the literature in its utilization of historical methods for project execution. Getting feedback and reaction of students and assessing the success of the project-based learning implemen...
The Effect of Problem-Based Learning on Self-Regulated Learning: A Review of Literature
TAŞ, Yasemin; Sungur, Semra (2012-01-01)
The purpose of this paper is threefold. Firstly, self-regulated learning is described from the social cognitive perspective and why self-regulated learning should be targeted in schools is discussed. Secondly, problem-based learning is proposed to facilitate self-regulated learning. Literature on the effects of problem-based learning on students' self-regulated learning in K-12 science classes is reviewed. An empirical base for how particular aspects of problem-based learning can improve students' self-regu...
Relationship between familiarity, attitudes and preferences: Assisted living facilities as compared to nursing homes
İmamoğlu, Çağrı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-11-01)
In this paper, the authors aim to (a) explore attitudes toward and preferences for living in the newly emerging place type of assisted living facilities in comparison to nursing homes, and (b) assess the possible impact of familiarity on those attitudes and preferences. Ninety-eight respondents (with a mean age of 62) were surveyed. Respondents were found to be more favorable toward assisted living facilities than nursing homes. A three-factor model was proposed in which attitudes mediated between familiari...
