Nazisploitation And The Problem Of Violence In Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Jared Welling Cook 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

Nazisploitation And The Problem Of Violence In Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Jared Welling Cook

All Theses and Dissertations

In this thesis, I explore the representation of Nazis and violence in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (2009), including how the film proposes justification for violence and murder, and how the film participates in cultural fantasies. The film presents an alternate outcome of World War II in which the Allies achieve victory by assassinating Hitler and the High Command of the Third Reich in a movie theater. The Nazis in the film, far from being a complex enemy, are used for their token villain status. Using the Nazis in this way both participates in and reinterprets the Nazisploitation genre. The ...


Terminology Validation, Uwe Muegge 2011 SelectedWorks

Terminology Validation, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

It is generally accepted that terminology plays a particularly important role in translation and localization of life science products and services. But how do you make sure that linguists use the client’s preferred terminology? If terminology is available before the source text is authored and client-validated terminology is available in all languages before translation, the translation process in general and translation review in particular can be a much less painful and time-consuming process. Participants in this session take away a better understanding of the value of implementing a comprehensive terminology management program as part of a risk management and ...

Introduction To American Law: Class 1, Jennifer Allison

Jennifer Allison

In June 2011 I taught a four-session "Introduction to the American Legal System" course to law students at the University of Augsburg in Germany. This is the presentation for the first session, which covers a basic introduction to the American legal process and the unique features of judge-made law.


Identitat-Anlage Durch Warter Und Aussehen, C. David Robba 2011 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Identitat-Anlage Durch Warter Und Aussehen, C. David Robba

Honors Theses

The identity of a person is his most important aspect. It has a big impact on the way someone sees himself, and how other people recognize him. Without a unique identity, a person has no characteristic character. In their lives, everyone creates an identity. However, identity becomes most important when one is a foreigner or visits a foreign country. Because of this, many aspects of society and everyday life could be very different, and if one lacks what he knows, he can find solace in his identity. However, if a person's identity is not certain, they may feel lost ...


The Mirror Of Laughter: Mediation, Self-Reflection, And Healing In E.T.A. Hoffmann's Princess Brambilla, Alexander M. Schlutz 2011 CUNY John Jay College

The Mirror Of Laughter: Mediation, Self-Reflection, And Healing In E.T.A. Hoffmann's Princess Brambilla, Alexander M. Schlutz

Publications and Research

E.T.A. Hoffmann’s capriccio Princess Brambilla explores a narrative realm of liminality and metamorphosis that reveals the fundamental instability of our most basic epistemological distinctions. Set during the irreverent days of the Roman carnival, Brambilla delights in a disorienting chaos of masks, costumes, dream images and hallucinations as Hoffmann pulls all the stops in a fantastical narrative of extraordinary complexity. The text unfolds a carnivalesque universe that – in the spirit of Early German Romantic irony – plays with the inescapable mediatory “distortions” brought about by the structures of human consciousness itself. Just as the carnival is a ritual of ...

A New Approach To Teaching Collaborative Translation In The Classroom, Uwe Muegge 2011 SelectedWorks

A New Approach To Teaching Collaborative Translation In The Classroom, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

The availability of so-called cloud-computing services in the translation tools space has changed the way CAT is being taught at the Monterey Institute since this technology was first used in the classroom in 2008: Not only does this new tools paradigm eliminate many major cost factors (e.g. computer lab, licensing fees, local servers), cloud-based translation memories also enable new forms of online collaboration among students and, in fact, the wider translation community.

German Demonstrative Adverbs Of Spatial Deixis: Evidence From Native Speakers, L2 Learners, And Corpora, Johnathan Lee William Gajdos 2011 University of Iowa

German Demonstrative Adverbs Of Spatial Deixis: Evidence From Native Speakers, L2 Learners, And Corpora, Johnathan Lee William Gajdos

Theses and Dissertations

The use of demonstrative adverbs is a function of making reference to a real or abstract location. In German, there are three principle demonstrative adverbs that are used spatially--hier, da, and dort. This thesis provides an overview of the primary theories proposed in the literature to explain the German hier/da/dort system of reference and examines those claims from the context of a study of L2 learners and L1 speakers combined with a corpus-based analysis of the frequency, distribution, and use of the demonstrative adverbs, both in isolation and in unison. The evidence from learner data, native speaker interpretations ...


Theological Conviviality In “The Religious Banquet”: The Case For Reconciliation Between Erasmus And Luther, Kathleen Borchers 2011 Valparaiso University

Theological Conviviality In “The Religious Banquet”: The Case For Reconciliation Between Erasmus And Luther, Kathleen Borchers

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

The relationship between the two well-known theologians, Erasmus of Rotterdam and Martin Luther, has been thoroughly discussed over the centuries, especially concerning their debate over free will. Although this debate would eventually lead to a parting of the ways, there was a time during the Reformation when Erasmus and Luther worked to bring about reconciliation between the Roman Catholic Church and the Evangelical Protestants. As a humanist, Erasmus communicated his religious ideas and opinions through a variety of texts and discourses. His dialogue, "The Religious Banquet," is an unexpectedly useful prism through which to view Erasmus' commentaries on the Church ...


Beyond Google Translate: The Future Of Machine Translation, Uwe Muegge 2011 SelectedWorks

Beyond Google Translate: The Future Of Machine Translation, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

This presentation examines some of the drawbacks of using free machine translation services, focusing on users’ complete lack of control over the translation output, often caused by the generic or unhelpful data used to train public systems; and offer solutions for driving higher quality in machine translation, including using rule-based systems, and ensuring that engines are only fed domain-accurate data.

Andrew Donson, “Youth In The Fatherless Land: War Pedagogy, Nationalism, And Authority In Germany, 1914-1918″, Marshall Poe, Andrew Donson

Andrew Donson

I was a little kid during the Vietnam War. It was on the news all the time, and besides my uncle was fighting there. I followed it closely, or as closely as a little kid can. I never thought for a moment that "we" could lose. "We" were a great country run by good people; "they" were a little country run by bad people. I spent my time building models of American tanks, planes, and ships. I read a lot of "Sergeant Rock" and watched re-runs of "Combat." My friends and I played "war" everyday after school. Given all this ...


Zu Nietzsches Statuen: Skulptur Und Das Erhabene, Babette babich 2011 Fordham University

Zu Nietzsches Statuen: Skulptur Und Das Erhabene, Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

Metaphern aus dem Feld der Bildhauerein kommen überraschend oft bei Nietzsche vor: von der Statue als einem Ideal von Unweglichkeit ebenso wie von der Skulptur als einer Metapher der Selbst-Darstellung, bis hin zu Nietzsches ikonoklastischer Klärung: wie mit dem Hammer zu philosophieren sei.

In Bezug auf die griechische Platik sowie Nietzsche’s Texte argumentiert die Autorin mit Nietzsche gegen eine damals und noch heute weit verbreitete Auffassung, wonach wir solche Statuen fast unvermeidlich aus einem jüdisch-christlichen Gesichtspunkt betrachten. Außerdem geht sie besonders ein auf Nietzsches Beschwörung der Skulptur in dem Zarathustra-Abschnitt Von den Erhabenen.


Adorno On Science And Nihilism, Animals, And Jews, Babette Babich 2011 Fordham University

Adorno On Science And Nihilism, Animals, And Jews, Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

No less than Heidegger or Nietzsche, Adorno had his own critical notions of truth/untruth. But Adorno’s readers are unsettled by the barest hint of anything that might be taken to be anti-science. Thus it is argued that Adorno opposes not science but scientism. But, and here not unlike Arendt, Adorno argued that so-called “scientistic” tendencies are the very conditions of society and of scientific thought.” I ask how we are to read Adorno by exploring his thought on animals and nihilism.


“I Don’T Even Know Why They Love Me Ranting About This Shit”: An Analysis And Annotated Videography Of The “Hitler Reacts” Videos, Devlyn C. Tedesco 2011 Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures

“I Don’T Even Know Why They Love Me Ranting About This Shit”: An Analysis And Annotated Videography Of The “Hitler Reacts” Videos, Devlyn C. Tedesco

Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures Publications and Other Works

Adolf Hitler has been called many things since his rise to power in 1933 – cruel, maniacal, crazy, evil, just to name a few. Today’s youth, however, know him as “funny.” They associate him not with the Holocaust or World War II, but rather, with the Der Untergang YouTube parody videos in which he stars. It is these videos, along with a handful of other humorous Hitler facsimiles that represent contemporary society’s shift in their stance on the dictator. Though these videos were created to incite laughter, they have provided a glimpse into the way that many people deal ...
