  • The Anxiety of Feminist Influence: Concepts of Voice in Margaret Atwood and Carol Shields 

    Stead, Nicola Jayne (University of ExeterEnglish, 2009-04-14)
    This thesis explores the concepts of “voice” and “influence” through the case studies of two famous English-speaking Canadian women writers, Margaret Atwood and Carol Shields. The “voice” is multiple, ambiguous and ...
  • Anxiety, Attention and Performance Variability in Visuo-motor Skills 

    Vine, Samuel J. (University of ExeterSport and Health Sciences, 2010-10-11)
    The aims of the current program of research were to examine the impact of anxiety on performance and attentional control during the execution of two far aiming tasks, and to examine the efficacy of gaze training interventions ...
  • Anxiety, Attentional Control, and Performance Impairment in Penalty Kicks 

    Wilson, Mark R.; Wood, G; Vine, Samuel J. (HUMAN KINETICS PUBL INC, 2009-12)
    The current study sought to test the predictions of attentional control theory (ACT) in a sporting environment. Fourteen experienced footballers took penalty kicks under low- and high-threat counterbalanced conditions while ...
  • Any Curriculum will do: Structure as a Catalyst for Adult Transformation 

    Cook, Paul Alexander (University of ExeterEducation, 2013-05-01)
    This thesis employs phenomenological hermeneutic circle analysis, to investigate structure versus agency and adult identity change in lifelong learning. Achieving transformed agency and enhanced identity is argued to be ...
  • Anyon exciton revisited 

    Parfitt, D.G.W.; Portnoi, M.E. (2003)
    We review the main results of the anyon exciton model in light of recent criticism by Wojs and Quinn. We show that the appearance of fractionally charged anyon ions at the bottom of their numerically calculated excitation ...
  • Anyon exciton revisited: Exact solutions for a few-particle system 

    Parfitt, D.G.W.; Portnoi, M.E. (American Physical Society, 2003)
    The anyon exciton model is generalized to the case of a neutral exciton consisting of a valence hole and an arbitrary number N of fractionally charged quasielectrons (anyons). A complete set of exciton basis functions is ...
  • Anyon excitons 

    Rashba, E.I.; Portnoi, M.E. (American Physical Society, 1993)
    We propose a model of an anyon exciton consisting of a hole and several anyons, and apply it to the spectroscopy of an incompressible quantum liquid. Fractionalization of the electron charge makes properties of such entities ...
  • 'Anywhere Out of the World': Restlessness in the work of Bruce Chatwin 

    Chatwin, Jonathan Michael (University of ExeterDepartment of English, 2008-06-20)
    This thesis is centrally concerned with the theme of restlessness within the work of the British author Bruce Chatwin. Critical interpretation of Chatwin’s work has tended to focus on the generic and political status of ...
  • Apocalipse 1,11 in São Paulo: Aesthetic Vertigo or Exploitation? 

    Stanton, William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press), 2002)
    Performed in an abandoned prison, Apocalipse I, II re-enacts a 1992 massacre at São Paulo's Carandiru prison where 111 prisoners were shot by the military police. But the inclusion of a live sex show and gratuitous violence ...
  • Apologia in Xenophon's Anabasis 

    Brennan, Shane Geoffrey (University of ExeterClassics and Ancient History, 2011-01-06)
    Xenophon of Athens probably did not write his Anabasis until thirty years or more after the events which it describes. This remarkable gap, taken together with the absence of a prologue, the presence of a number of prominent ...
  • Apostasy versus legitimacy: relational dynamics and routes to resource acquisition in entrepreneurial ventures 

    Stringfellow, Lindsay; Shaw, Eleanor; Maclean, Mairi (Sage, 2014)
    What causes some business owners to be marginalized by a social structure that empowers others? This paper explores the relational dynamics of legitimation within a professional service venture context, using a Bourdieusian ...
  • Appeals to the Bible in ecotheology and environmental ethics: a typology of hermeneutical stances 

    Horrell, David G.; Hunt, Cherryl; Southgate, Christopher (SAGE Publications, 2008-08)
    This article surveys and classifies the kinds of appeal to the Bible made in recent theological discussions of ecology and environmental ethics. These are, first, readings of ‘recovery’, followed by two types of readings ...
  • Appendix 2. The Claypool Study 

    Bradley, Bruce A.; Stanford, Dennis J. (Academic Press, 1987)
  • An appetite for creative destruction: should the senior academic technology officer be modelled on the CIO or the CTO? 

    Shurville, Simon; Browne, Tom (ICICTE, 2009)
    We examine the emerging role of Senior Academic Technology Officer and the shift from having acknowledged expertise to acquiring legitimate organizational power. We are particularly interested in the match or mismatch ...
  • Application and support for high-performance simulation 

    Mustafee, Navonil; Taylor, Simon J. E. (Sage, 2013)
    High performance simulation that supports sophisticated simulation experimentation and optimization can require non-trivial amounts of computing power. Advanced distributed computing techniques and systems found in areas ...
  • Application of an Evolutionary Data Mining Technique for Constitutive Modelling of Geomaterials 

    Ahangarasr, Alireza (University of ExeterCollege of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, 2012-12-31)
    Modelling behaviour of materials involves approximating the actual behaviour with that of an idealised material that deforms in accordance with some constitutive relationships. Several constitutive models have been developed ...
  • The application of automated mineralogy to the provenance study of red-bed successions: a case study from the Permo-Triassic of SW England 

    McVicar Wright, Sarita Eleanor (University of ExeterCSM, 2014-10-07)
