Making Meaning of the 2006 Territorial Conflict in Caledonia and Reflecting Upon the Future of the Impacted Communities

Norm Desjardins
This thesis contributes to the study of reconciliation of Indigenous – Settler community conflicts in Canada (aka Turtle Island) through an understanding of: how the Six Nations and residents of Caledonia have made, and continue to make, meaning of the 2006 territorial conflict; the ongoing impact of actions by activists and counter-activists on the general populace–both members of the Six Nations and residents of Caledonia; the degree of healing that has taken place over time...

Impact of Maternal Iron Deficiency on Cortisol Levels and Auditory Brainstem Responses in the Young and Adult Guinea Pig

Nora Shero
Maternal iron deficiency is a world wide and major public health issue. Despite recent researchers’ interest related to this topic, its impact in the offspring still remains unclear. The aim of this study is to understand the impact of maternal iron deficiency on the auditory functions and serum cortisol levels in the young and adult guinea pig at post-natal day (PNd) 24 and PNd84, respectively. Pregnant guinea pigs were given an iron deficient (ID) or...

Cellulose Nanocrystals: Renewable Property Modifiers for Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

Zahra Dastjerdi
Pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) are polymeric materials with versatile applications in industrial and consumer products such as protective films, product labels, masking tape, and sticky notes, to name a few applications. World demand for emulsion–based products is on the rise due to worldwide legislation on solvent emissions. In order to completely replace emulsion-based PSAs with their solvent-based counterpart, the property modification of emulsion-based PSAs is required. The use of nanomaterials to modify polymer properties is...

Religious Peacebuilding: The Life and Work of Archbishop Raya as a Model for Religious Peacebuilding

Lesya Michalina Sabada
Throughout this dissertation, I argue that the same religion that incites people to hideous acts of violence and destruction can also influence people to act in love, to work toward healing in all stages of conflict, and to offer hope in difficult situations. As Katrien Hertog argues in her major work, The Complex Reality of Religious Peacebuilding, religion has much to contribute to the work of peacebuilding. Unfortunately, as John Paul Lederach and Cynthia Sampson,...

“Localisation” and the “Arab Spring”: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Translation-Mediated Arabic News Articles on the Unrest in the Arabic-Speaking World (The Case of Robert Fisk and Al Jazeera)

Samir Khidir
This study is a critical analysis of translation-mediated Arabic news items on the “Arab Spring”. It explores the influence of social, historical, political, localic, and socio-ideological aspects of news translation via certain media agendas, by applying Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and qualitative descriptive methods in the analysis of the localised news items, interviews with translators, and a corpus of comments by the Arabic-speaking readership. The data analysed in this case study comprise a four-year (2010-2014)...

Intelligent Stereo Video Monitoring System for Paramedic Helmet

Yang Liu
During the first aid process, when patients are threatened by poor medical conditions, ambulance paramedics are required to administer emergency treatment based on instruc- tions provided by a remote emergency doctor through voice communication. However, such voice communication is always limited in expressing abundant detailed information for the patient. This thesis presents a framework for a stereoscopic and intelligent telemedicine sys- tem that can provide 3D live video communication between paramedics and emergency doctors. The...

High Resolution Stratigraphy of the Lower Silurian (Rhuddanian-Aeronian) Paleotropical Neritic Carbonates, Anticosti Island, Québec

Pascale Daoust
Anticosti Island, located in Eastern Canada, displays one of the most complete, best exposed, and most fossiliferous carbonate successions spanning the Ordovician-Silurian (O/S) Boundary in the World. This study develops a new high-resolution framework for the post End-Ordovician extinction strata (~ 260 m thick) exposed in coastal outcrops and recovered from a continuous drill core (La Loutre #1), both located in the western part of the island. In total, eight facies, all associated with a...

Création et procréation : métaphores chez Hélène Cixous et Nancy Huston

Catherine Voyer-Léger
Cette thèse de maîtrise s’intéresse à une métaphore commune qui trouve ses racines dans la pensée grecque de Platon et qui se déploie sous diverses formes jusqu’à nos jours : la création artistique comme procréation. Nous proposons la lecture de deux essais écrits par des écrivaines de la deuxième moitié du XXe siècle, « La venue à l’écriture » de Hélène Cixous (1977) et Journal de la création de Nancy Huston (1990). Au croisement de...

Theory of Image Formation in Non-linear Optical Microscopy

Jarno Nicolaas Van Der Kolk
Nonlinear optical microscopy is a collection of very powerful imaging techniques. Linear optical microscopes probe the refractive index and absorption, which both stem from the first-order linear electric susceptibility. Especially in biological tissue, the variation in the refractive index is often small and the tissue is, in many cases, transparant. Nonlinear optical microscopes on the other hand probe the nonlinear higher-order susceptibilities, which can be chemically sensitive, leading to the capability to achieve label-free imaging....
