1. Kent, Mark (author). X-eo: Researching & Designing for Rebellious play.

Degree: 2019, Delft University of Technology

This reports the graduation project aimed to investigate the occurrence of rebellious play through the X-eo prototype. Rebellious behaviour is often referred to as going against the norm and derives its value from breaking rules. Previous academic research (Gielen & Van Leeuwen, 2013), on the subject, has provided suggestions and techniques to design for this. However, there has been no clear or obvious conclusion as of yet, whether or how rebellious play can be promoted and supported through design.Therefore the brief for this graduation assignment was to “ re-think the bangerik & develop the Bangerik concept and investigate the occurrence of rebellious behaviour during play. As secondary goals; gain insights in designing and researching for rebellious play.”X-eo builds upon the bangerik concept developed during the compulsory DFI master‘s course Interactive Technology Design (ITD) during the 2013/2014 academic year at the faculty of IDE at the Delft University of Technology. Bangerik is an interactive free-flowing game that encourages children to be rebellious in a playful context. It consisted of a wearable worn on the wrist, where the goal of the game to raise their opponent‘s heart rate by scaring them and then steal their lives by tapping their wristband. The project is broken down into four distinct phases: Understand, Ideate, Make and Evaluate. Understand: The “understand“ phase was an immersion into the terminology behind the assignment through literature, an investigation of the original concept, online research of current rebellious concepts and potential technology that could be integrated into the final design to be tested at the end of the project. A definition of rebellious play was created and defined as “Where children can actively challenge what is in place and explore their behavioural boundaries, without having to face or endure any serious or lasting consequences“ This definition accompanied by a model of rebellious play was used to support the start of the ideate phase. The phase concluded with the establishment of research gaps to be investigated during the next stage of the project.Ideate: The “ideate“ phase consisted of 2 iterative design loops to find information that could not be obtained from traditional research methods such as literature reviews and interviews. Ideation focussed on the following research gaps, with prototypes created for each aspect and tested with children at a local school:How to play tag with Bangerik?How to attach something to the body?Where to place the tagging locations on the upper body?How to raise and lower heart rate during play and should this aspect remain in aspect?The video data from the testing sessions were analysed with the following conclusions established: The upper arms and chest are the most suitable tagging locations on the upper body. A garment is best to accommodate the tagging areas on the upper body. The heart rate aspect was a vital element and should be integrated into the final design. Feedback should be integrated into the final… Advisors/Committee Members: Gielen, Mathieu (mentor), Ruiter, Anna (graduation committee), Delft University of Technology (degree granting institution).

2. Imounga, Flavienne Nadège. La généricité du discours rebelle dans la littérature africaine. À partir de l'oeuvre d'Emmanuel Dongala. : The genericity of rebel discourse in African literature. From the work of Emmanuel Dongala.

Degree: Docteur es, Sciences du langage, 2018, Limoges

Depuis sa naissance, la littérature africaine s’est penchée sur les maux qui minent son continent. La situation politique instable de nombreux pays africains, le mode gestion, et le quotidien du peuple suffisent aux écrivains pour peindre des tableaux obscurs de leurs pays respectifs. C’est dans cette optique qu’Emmanuel Dongala en tant qu’écrivain de l’ « urgence » s’empresse d’écrire dès qu’il constate une anomalie autour de lui. Son écriture tournée vers la dénonciation ne manque pas d’aborder des problématiques qui sont toujours d’actualité. D’où l’intitulé de notre thèse, « La généricité du discours rebelle dans la littérature africaine. À partir de l’œuvre d’Emmanuel Dongala ». L’objet de ce travail est de montrer que l’écriture de notre auteur respecte une certaine logique. Ecrivain engagé, le discours rebelle chez Emmanuel Dongala est toujours d’actualité que ce soit dans le théâtre, le roman ou la nouvelle. De même, les thématiques qu’il aborde, le type de personnage qu’il met en scène, leurs discours, participent non seulement à mettre en évidence les maux et les dérivent de ces gouvernements au pouvoir mais, ils nous permettent de mieux comprendre sa posture. Enfin, l‘étude de son style d’écriture nous permettra de voir comment il se démarque de ses confrères écrivains africains afin de capter l’attention de son destinataire.

Since its birth, African literature has looked at the evils that undermine its continent. The unstable political situation of many African countries, the management mode, and the daily life of the people are enough for writers to paint obscure pictures of their respective countries. It is in this perspective that Emmanuel Dongala as a writer of "urgency" is quick to write as soon as he finds an anomaly around him. His writing turned to the denunciation does not fail to address issues that are still relevant. Hence the title of our thesis, "The Genericity of Rebellious Discourse in African Literature. From the work of Emmanuel Dongala ". The purpose of this work is to show that the writing of our author respects a certain logic. A committed writer, Emmanuel Dongala's rebellious discourse is still relevant whether in the theater, the novel or the short story. Similarly, the themes he addresses, the type of character he puts on the scene, their speeches, not only help to highlight the evils and derives of these governments in power but, they allow us to better understand its posture. Finally, the study of his writing style will allow us to see how he stands out from his fellow African writers in order to capture the attention of his recipient.
