  1. 1. Design And Body : Exploring Conceptions Of The Body In Fashion Design Processes

    Author : Faseeh Saleem; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Body alternatives; alternative body expressions; fashion design processes; conceptions of the body; design thinking; artistic research; fashion design education programmes;

    Abstract : The human body has been considered to be an active element and is a common starting point of fashion design processes. However, during these processes, understanding of the body and how it is used to design is often confined by the body’s standard spatial and structural characteristics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Body acts queer : Clothing as a performative challenge to heteronormativity

    Author : Maja Gunn; José Teunissen; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Artistic research; design; fashion; ideology; performativity; pleasure; power; queer.; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : This artistic, practice-based thesis has been developed based on the idea that design creates social and ideological change. From this perspective, Body Acts Queer — Clothing as a performative challenge to heteronormativity introduces an artistic way of working with and exploring the performative and ideological functions of clothing with regard to gender, feminism, and queer.

  3. 3. Improvements in Bioimpedance Spectroscopy Data Analysis : Artifact Correction, Cole Parameters and Body Fluid Estimation

    Author : Rubén Buendía López; Fernando Seoane; Hermann Scharfetter; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Bioimpedance; Cole; Body Fluid; Medicinteknik;

    Abstract : The estimation of body fluids is a useful and common practice in the status assessment of disease mechanisms and treatments. Electrical bioimpedance spectroscopy (EBIS) methods are non-invasive, inexpensive, and efficient alternatives for the estimation of body fluids. READ MORE

  4. 4. Food webs and the distribution of body sizes

    Author : Tomas Jonsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Many ecologically relevant life-history traits of organisms, (such as generation time and ingestion rate) are significantly correlated to body size. Since these individual and species characteristics can affect the interactions between the species in a community, it is possible that the distribution of body sizes (in communities) can affect different properties of foodwebs as well.
