Aye Thanda Lwin

The focus of the work is on modelling blood flow in a medium-to-large
systemic arteries assuming
cylinderical geometry, axially symmetric flow, and viscoelasticity of
arterial walls.The aim is to develop a
reduced model that would capture certain physical phenomena that have
been neglected in the derivation
of the standard axially symmetric one-dimensional models, while at the
same time keeping the numerical
simulations fast and simple,utilizing one-dimensional algorithms.
We study the flow of incompressible viscous fluid through a long tube
with compliant walls. the flow
is governed by a given time-dependent velocity and pressure. The Navier-
Stokes equations for an incompressible

CFP: [Graduate] ACLA - Feminism's Journeys

What does it mean to talk about arrivals and departures within the
development of (political) movements such as feminism? Rather than
describing feminism as being a single linear and progressive journey, it
becomes one filled with fragmentation and non-linear "progress": battles,
contradictions, paradoxes, problems, and limitations that a feminist
approach has brought up and continues to bring up.

We invite abstracts to form a panel on objects and memory for the 2008
Cultural Studies Association conference at New York University in May.
This panel will explore the function of objects, whether private mementos
or public relics, as material representations of past identity.
Possible topics may include the relationship between object memory and
trauma, history, the body or space, as well as the role of material
memory in forensics, the city, domestic identity, warfare, advertising
and museum culture. We welcome proposals from interdisciplinary
perspectives addressing a variety of cultural texts including film,
material culture, literature, photography, etc. To submit to this panel,
