1. Willis, Zoë F. Saint cults and the politics of power in the Dalmatian commune of Zadar (1000-1468).

Degree: PhD, 2012, University of Warwick

The city of Zadar lies upon the Dalmatian coast of modern Croatia. Zadar’s position during the medieval period was that of an affluent port, poised between the markets of East and West, the Balkan hinterland and maritime Adriatic. Such a location made it a strategic colonial target for both Venice and the Kingdom of Hungary. This thesis examines the influence of these political, economic and cultural forces upon the commune’s powerful markers of local identity: its saints’ cults. Zadar’s past wealth created a significant cache of associated metalwork and ecclesiastical architecture that has received little attention beyond the Balkans. Beginning with a grand historical narrative - drawn together from the scholarship of Zaratine, Venetian and Hungarian histories - the complex rivalries and ambitions of the various regional protagonists are highlighted. Zadar’s role within these relations, be it peripheral or central, had an impact upon the commune’s social structures and networks. A study of archival sources indicates a blurring of boundaries between identities, both local and foreign, rather than the stark contrasts that often define the city’s histories. Patronage is also an important aspect of this study, showing how sacral works of art and monumental ecclesiastical structures were important tools in strengthening position and power. The results of such largesse were developments in the cults of Saints Chrysogonus, Simeon the Prophet and Mark the Evangelist. These reveal the flow of cultic practices and artistic trends through Europe, with Zaratine audiences aware of and demanding the most current in their local commissions. Each case study considers ritual, iconography and architectural space, thus contributing additional facets to the understanding of Medieval Zaratine identity.

2. Clancy, Hannah Elizabeth. The historical re-evaluation of cultural heritage in modern post conflict situations.

Degree: m_ph, College of Arts & Law, 2010, University of Birmingham

The loss of cultural heritage is familiar to us all in both current times with the looting of the Iraqi Museum in Baghdad and in the past as seen in the bombing of many cities during World War Two. The reasons for destruction are often complex and difficult to determine despite much speculation in the news. What is perhaps given less news coverage is what comes next; the equally complex task of reconstructing the damaged heritage. Throughout this study it became apparent that there was a problem with the current post-war approach, looking at heritage in terms of destruction and reconstruction. This thesis attempts to create a new term for approaching heritage post-war; historical re-evaluation. This approach hopes to provide a deeper understanding of cultural heritage and how it reflects and is reflected by a society post-war.

3. Boeddha, Navin. Pediatric Sepsis: Determinants of outcome.

Degree: 2018, Erasmus University Rotterdam

markdownabstractBacterial infections are one of the leading causes of death and disability among children. The host response to infection involves complex interplays between inflammation, coagulation, and fibrinolysis. In meningococcal sepsis, the inflammatory response induce excessive coagulation and downregulation of fibrinolysis, contributing to the need to amputate extremities, multiple organ dysfunction, and eventually death. In this thesis, we characterized children with severe bacterial infections and we studied the following six determinants in relation to outcome: neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), human leukocyte antigen-DR (HLA-DR) expression on monocyte subsets, glycosylation of the fragment crystallizable (Fc) region of immunoglobulin G (IgG), A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase with Thrombospondin motifs (ADAMTS)-1, ADAMTS-18, and plasminogen-activator-inhibitor-1 (PAI-1). In addition, we explored the role of genetic variation within individuals in the host response to infection. This thesis shows that community-acquired sepsis continues to cause a devastating effect in high-income countries, mainly by high incidence of disability. Furthermore, this thesis provides considerable insight into the host response to sepsis by studying specific inflammatory, hemostatic, genetic, and environmental factors in relation to outcome. These determinants could help to detect patients at risk for poor outcome at an early stage, and have given us new directions to individualize sepsis treatment.
