    Abstract:

    Scientific research, considered in isolation, is often regarded as an amoral activity. In this view, ethics exists only around the margins of research – perhaps in the choice of topics pursued, the treatment of experimental subjects, or the use of results. Such an account seems to explain why brilliant scientists can be deeply flawed, at times even vicious, human beings. It also reflects a distinction between “making” and “acting” that found its most influential formulation in Aristotle’s dis…

    Abstract:

    Malcolm Rorty is best known to historians of economics as the primary organizer and founder of the National Bureau of Economic Research. This essay situations Rorty’s interest in economics against the backdrop of his early career in telephone engineering at American Telephone & Telegraph. I argue that distinct structural features of telephone engineering in general, and AT&T in particular, created overlaps between the practices engineering and economics, and also opened space for Rort…

    Abstract:

    “Chaucer’s Ghoast” is an anonymous collection of twelve short poems (one set within a short story in prose) published in London in 1672, and evidently never reprinted since. It has been described as a loose translation of selections from Ovid, and sometimes (e.g. by the NUC) attributed to Charles Cotton (1630-87). Joshua has identified it as a modernization of selections from CA, and reprints ten lines from the two works (from the story of Pygmaleon) to demonstrate the closeness…

    Abstract:

    The picturesque theorists disagree vehemently over whether the picturesque deformity that can be appreciated in buildings and landscapes could also be appreciated in people with deformities, be these people real or represented. William Gilpin writes about ruins and people in ways that suggest that they possess the same aesthetic value. Fitness for representation is Gilpin’s criterion for a certain type of aesthetic appreciation, and, using this criterion, he regards picturesque deformity in a…

    Abstract:

    Observes that George Bernard Shaw’s play “Pygmalion” is read in a mythographic context that has generally focused exclusively on its connections to Ovid’s version of the myth, contained in “Metamorphoses.” Argues, borrowing from the theories of Lévi-Strauss, that alternative versions of the Pygmalion myth should be studied, as mythic tales are not “static,” but constantly refined through retellings. Explains the use of “contextualisation” in the…

    Abstract:

    The “Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals” names the radical Scottish journalist William Weir, 1802-1858, as the author of an unsigned series of seven articles, published in Henry Colburn’s “New Monthly Magazine”, entitled “Recollections of a Gottingen Student”, 1829-1830. While the old “Dictionary of National Biography”, which is referenced in “Wellesley”, is silent on the dates of Weir’s time in Gottingen and does not attribute a…

    Abstract:

    Rice University’s Culture of Care represents a commitment to ensuring that all are treated with respect, compassion, and deep care. Rice leveraged information technology (IT) to deliver its Culture of Care, in responding to Hurricane Harvey. IT tools were used to gather key information on Rice’s over 12000 community members. These data were fused with structured university data, enabling data-driven disaster response, with actionable information pushed to local managers. Our successful commun…

    Abstract:

    Thermoelectric generators are an environmentally friendly and reliable solid-state energy conversion technology. Flexible and low-cost thermoelectric generators are especially suited to power flexible electronics and sensors using body heat or other ambient heat sources. Bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) based thermoelectric materials exhibit their best performance near room temperature making them an ideal candidate to power wearable electronics and sensors using body heat. In this report, Bi2Te3 t…

    Abstract:

    on migration represents an intrinsic instability of metal halide perovskite solar cells. Here we show that triple-cation FAxMAyCs1-x-yPbI3 [FA+ = (NH2)2CH+, MA+ = CH3NH3+] active layers with mixed orthorhombic, post-perovskite (δortho-CsPbI3), and cubic perovskite (α) phases (i.e., α/δ-phase FAxMAyCs1-x-yPbI3) exhibit improved cation stability against applied bias relative to pure α-phase perovskites (i.e., FA0.85Cs0.15PbI3 and FA0.76MA0.15Cs0.09PbI3). Infrared photothermal heterodyne imaging…

    Abstract:

    Understanding water behavior in confined volumes is important in applications ranging from water purification to healthcare devices. Especially relevant are wetting and dewetting phenomena which can be switched by external stimuli, such as light and electric fields. Here, these behaviors are exploited for electrochemical processing by voltage-directed ion transport in nanochannels contained within nanopore arrays in which each nanopore presents three electrodes. The top and middle electrodes …
