Text As Resistance In Holocaust Literature: Struggles For Personhood In Wiesel, Levi, And Delbo, Gillian M. Mozer 2010 University of Connecticut - Storrs

Text As Resistance In Holocaust Literature: Struggles For Personhood In Wiesel, Levi, And Delbo, Gillian M. Mozer

Honors Scholar Theses

This thesis is an examination of the memoirs of three core Holocaust writers, Elie Wiesel (Night and Day), Primo Levi (If This is A Man), and Charlotte Delbo (Auschwitz and After), exploring the ways in which each of the three authors uses his or her memoir to simultaneously document and resist the dehumanizing influence of the concentration camp experience.


A Comparative Analysis Of The Correct Usage Of "Nicht" And "Kein" In Satznegation According To Daf Grammars, Kathleen Maureen Schuster 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

A Comparative Analysis Of The Correct Usage Of "Nicht" And "Kein" In Satznegation According To Daf Grammars, Kathleen Maureen Schuster

Masters Theses

The varying presentations of the rules for nicht and kein found in intermediate grammar books for students in North America and DaF-learners in Germany highlight the difficulty in finding sources that are both reliable and consistent as well as easily applicable. This thesis seeks to compare the explanations found in A.E. Hammer’s German Grammar and Usage (revised by Martin Durrell), Helbig/Buscha’s Deutsche Grammatik, and Hall/Scheiner’s Übungsgrammatik, comparing all three to the basis of their information, Duden: die Grammatik. In order to assess how and where these sources converge and diverge, the analysis compares the ...


Focus On Frequency: A Comparison Of First-Year German Vocabularies, Ronald Eric Johnson 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Focus On Frequency: A Comparison Of First-Year German Vocabularies, Ronald Eric Johnson

Masters Theses

Foreign language teachers, experts of pedagogy, and textbook publishers often cite frequency as an important tool in the creation of textbooks, as well as in teaching students a foreign language. These same figures, however, rarely question the application of frequency in these works. This thesis examines the application of frequency over a range of first-year German textbooks compared to a textbook that is explicitly based on a particular frequency dictionary. These textbooks are compared to each other and to the Jones and Tschirner Frequency Dictionary of German and Pfeffer’s Grunddeutsch: Basic (Spoken) German Word List, Grundstufe.


Decoding Charlotte's Prevalence. A Kristevian Approach To The Representation Of Femininity In Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften, Zsuzsanna Rothne Zadori 2010 The University of Tennessee

Decoding Charlotte's Prevalence. A Kristevian Approach To The Representation Of Femininity In Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe's Die Wahlverwandtschaften, Zsuzsanna Rothne Zadori

Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation examines Goethe’s portrayal of femininity in Die Wahlver-wandtschaften and how his depiction of all three central female characters relates to feminine ideals that were promoted through the theoretical gender debate of the late 1700s in Germany and Western Europe. I analyze Charlotte’s, Luciane’s, and Ottilie’s actions and interactions in various triadic character constellations in order to offer new insights into Goethe’s portrayal of femininity. In so doing, I argue that Goethe’s depiction of Charlotte holds the key to understanding how far Die Wahlverwandtschaften functions as (critical) commentary on the late Enlightenment gender ...


Breaking Down Generational Barriers: Gottfried Keller's Novella 'Das FäHnlein Der Sieben Aufrechten' And Its Contemporary Reception, Amber Rose Wozniak 2010 University of Iowa

Breaking Down Generational Barriers: Gottfried Keller's Novella 'Das FäHnlein Der Sieben Aufrechten' And Its Contemporary Reception, Amber Rose Wozniak

Theses and Dissertations

Literary works contribute to the traditions of culture and unity. Gottfried Keller uses this notion to portray a realistic image of his society in which there is a need for social and political change and progression. Keller's novella Das Fähnlein der Sieben Aufrechten explores the discontinuity between generations in nineteenth-century Switzerland. This investigation explores Keller's presentation of his critique through the portrayal of the existing barriers between generations. It examines how Keller's novella depicts to overcome generational differences through the breaking down of these barriers. In addition, it discusses how a contemporary portrayal adapts and interprets Keller ...

The Biopolitical Unconscious: Not-All Persons Are Political, Ross G. Shields 2010 Macalester College

The Biopolitical Unconscious: Not-All Persons Are Political, Ross G. Shields

Media and Cultural Studies Honors Projects

It is a tenet of post-structuralist theory that discursive series fail in their attempts to constitute themselves as totalities. A system can fail in two distinct ways—from Kant’s dynamic and mathematic failures of reason, to Jacques Lacan’s equation of the two failures of language with the two failures (male and female) of sex. Biopolitical theory offers the most recent account of failure and collapse, now on the geopolitical scale. Given that the biopolitical subject too is sexed, this thesis asks the question: How does biopolitics fail? Franz Kafka’s aborted novels offer a premonition to a possible ...


Ex Aliquo Nihil: Nietzsche On Science And Modern Nihilism. Acpq, 84-2 (Spring 2010): 231-256., Babette Babich 2010 Fordham University

Ex Aliquo Nihil: Nietzsche On Science And Modern Nihilism. Acpq, 84-2 (Spring 2010): 231-256., Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

This essay explores the nihilistic coincidence of the ascetic ideal and Nietzsche’s localization of science in the conceptual world of anarchic socialism as Nietzsche indicts the uncritical convictions of modern science by way of a critique of the causa sui, questioning both religion and the enlightenment as well as both free and unfree will and condemning the “poor philology” enshrined in the language of the “laws” of nature. Reviewing the history of philosophical nihilism in the context of Nietzsche’s “tragic knowledge” along with political readings of nihilism, willing nothing rather than not willing at all, today’s this-worldly ...


Committed Drama Within Postdramatic Theatre: A Study Of Contemporary German Language Plays, Paulo Ricardo Berton 2010 University of Colorado, Boulder

Committed Drama Within Postdramatic Theatre: A Study Of Contemporary German Language Plays, Paulo Ricardo Berton

Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation challenges the view that drama has been divested of its critical functions under the dominant cultural paradigm of postmodernism and its socio-political correlative, late capitalism. To be sure, contemporary cultural circumstances have pressured “committed drama,” that is, drama that invites audience members to reflect critically on the world they inhabit by raising social and political issues, and by challenging mainstream aesthetic norms. On the one hand, the mainstream theatre, while still making use of some dramatic structural features, dissociates drama from any subversive political purpose. On the other hand, the postdramatic theatre theorized by Hans-Thies Lehmann eliminates the ...

Ten Good Reasons For Using A Translation Memory, Uwe Muegge 2010 Monterey Institute of International Studies

Ten Good Reasons For Using A Translation Memory, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

More than 20 years after the first commercial translation memory products became available, surveys indicate that while the vast majority of those surveyed do use a translation memory system, less than 30 percent of translators use this type of tool for every translation project or on a daily basis. Studies of translation memory usage among even the most technically advanced users show that the benefits of using a translation memory - beyond reusing existing translation - are still not well understood.

Uwe Muegge

With a terminology management strategy in place, organizations of any size are able to use the same terms consistently within and across the various documents and labeling that accompany a product or service. As these documents are typically created in a collaborative environment, terminology management is the most efficient solution for making sure that the organization as a whole uses the same terms to describe the same features and functions.

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz 2010 Western Michigan University

Pi(O)Us Medievalism Vs. Catholic Modernism: The Case Of George Tyrell, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

Investigates the use of "medievalism" by George Tyrell in his book, Medievalism. A Reply to Cardinal Mercier (1908). Tyrell, who argues in favor of a modern(ist), intelligent, Catholic faith, sees the Church's reorientation toward the Middle Ages in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as a misdirected form of originalism, which he rejects as "medievalism."
