“Fixing The Italian Problem”: Archbishop Of New Orleans John W. Shaw And The Oblates Of Mary Immaculate, 1918-1933, 2016 University of New Orleans, New Orleans
“Fixing The Italian Problem”: Archbishop Of New Orleans John W. Shaw And The Oblates Of Mary Immaculate, 1918-1933, Emily E. Nuttli
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
In 1918, Archbishop Shaw invited the Texas Catholic religious order, Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, to New Orleans to manage the St. Louis Cathedral and its filial parish for Southern Italians, St. Mary’s Church. This thesis will look at the personalities and preferentialism that affected this early 20th century transfer of religious power from secular priests to a religious order. Comparing the language used by Archbishop Shaw in correspondence with Oblate Fathers with the language he used with his secular priests will determine that Shaw displayed favoritism in his decision to invite the Oblates. This decision was affected ...

Pinocchio: Traduttore, Traditore, 2016 Lake Forest College
Pinocchio: Traduttore, Traditore, Vincent A. Cerda
This thesis is in Italian. This research examines Walt Disney and Carlo Collodi and their respective stories of Pinocchio through a historical and contextual perspective. A careful analysis of primary and secondary sources examines the backgrounds and personal beliefs of each author. After an examination of these sources, it becomes clear that Collodi wrote his story in order to establish a shared culture and unite a nation, and Disney made his film in a subtle way to express his Nazi convictions and earn money. Collodi's story and the Disney film are then directly compared in order to support these ...

Penelope’S Daughters, 2016 Beykent University
Penelope’S Daughters, Barbara Dell`Abate-Çelebi
A feminist perspective of the myth of Penelope in Annie Leclerc’s Toi, Pénélope, Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad and Silvana La Spina’s Penelope.
At the origin of Western literature stands Queen Penelope—faithfully waiting for her husband to come home: keeping house, holding on to the throne, keeping the suitors at arm’s length, preserving Odysseus’ place and memory, deserted for the pursuit of war and adventures, and bringing up a son alone, but always keeping the marriage intact. Yet recently the character of Penelope, long the archetype of abandoned, faithful, submissive, passive wife, has been reinterpreted by ...

Spanish Milan, Rome, and Sardinia during 1492-1700.
Nationalism has become a main focus for many countries in the last century. Countries have attempted to build up a national identity often forgetting to include the influences other countries may have had on them. Italy and Spain are often studied separately since they are two different countries now, but these countries have a long history in common. These two countries have interacted dating back to when the Roman Empire expanded and conquered Hispania. After the decline of the Roman Empire, the Spanish Empire became a leading power and would take control of ...
L’Impatto Dell’Isis Sulle Politiche Interne Italiane, 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut
L’Impatto Dell’Isis Sulle Politiche Interne Italiane, Michael Richard Battista Jr.
Senior Theses and Projects
I have researched how Italian domestic policies has been impacted by ISIS in recent years, in particular through the lenses of the threat of terrorism, and the refugee crisis. Recent examples include the terrorist attacks in neighboring France and Belgium, and the multilateral agreement to relocate refugees to Turkey. My two hypotheses based on my research are that the threat of terrorism has caused Italian domestic policies to become more conservative, such as attempted bans on religious iconography like the hijab, while the refugee crisis has actually caused resultant policies to become more liberal, such as the ambitious humanitarian program ...
Storia Orale Di Immigrati Italiani, 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut
Storia Orale Di Immigrati Italiani, Stephen A. Falcigno
Senior Theses and Projects
While growing up in an Italian family, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to a different culture. I was told some of the most amazing stories about life in Italy as well as the journey it took to come to America. My grandparents, Salvatore and Lina Mangione, like many other Italian immigrants, have a remarkable story. For my thesis, I documented this story and connected it back to some of the historical data that we now have. Their story focuses on their journey to the United States including the trials and tribulations they faced. It also includes how they ...
Mose: Salvare Venezia, 2016 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut
Mose: Salvare Venezia, Salvatore T. Siciliano
Senior Theses and Projects
Since 1900, the water levels in the Venetian Lagoon have risen almost 16 centimeters. In the same timeframe the city of Venice has gone from averaging 7 floods a year to over 100 in 2004 alone. It’s clear that in order for Venice to survive this problem a solution must be found. Fortunately, in 2003 MOSE (Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico), a network of floodgates constructed at each entrance to the lagoon that prevents flooding during high tides, finally began its long awaited construction, that today is in its final stages.
When looking at MOSE from an engineering perspective, the mechanics ...
Production, Consumption, And Marketing Italian Wine Culture, 2016 Trinity College
Production, Consumption, And Marketing Italian Wine Culture, Shannon Farrell
Senior Theses and Projects
Wine has been produced and consumed for centuries and, therefore, reflects wide ranging social and cultural practices. In my study, I recount the story of wine in Italy, from the Greek influence on southern Italian viticulture to the present. I mainly consider modern production, the market for wine, government regulations, and the publication of popular wine "guides". Using Italian wine guides, we can track the developments in production and consumption over the last twenty years, when Italian wines began to enjoy greater international favor. By focusing also on recent marketing of different regional wines, we can also see how both ...
Redefining Place Through The Mazarinades: The Pont-Neuf And The Place Royale, 2016 Brigham Young University - Provo
Redefining Place Through The Mazarinades: The Pont-Neuf And The Place Royale, Nathan Kent Jellen
Theses and Dissertations
In 1649, during the Fronde Parlementaire (1648-1650), Paris was teetering between opposing political camps that were trying to seize control of the city. The city's bourgeois parliament, in open rebellion to the political policies of King Louis XIV's Chief Minister, Cardinal Jules Mazarin, was raising an army and threatening to oust the Italian imposter. With the rise in violence within the city limits, Parisian printers and booksellers began circulating political propaganda in the form of booklets, mini-plays, brochures, and pamphlets that came to be known as mazarinades. Because these mazarinades—which took their name from the very man ...

Creating With Anger: Contemplating Vendetta. An Analysis Of Anger In Italian And Spanish Women Writers Of The Early Modern Era, Luisanna Sardu Castangia
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
In the vast gamut of human emotions, anger is one of the most complex, provocative, and enduring. From Greek philosophers working in antiquity to today’s most recent theories on emotions, most scholars agree that anger has a multifaceted nature. This near universal agreement across the barriers of time and geography stems from the following facts: in order to exist, anger involves the participation of other emotions; anger does not have an opposite; anger leads an individual to engage in an act of self-analysis and in an evaluation of other individuals; and, finally, anger inspires action to right a wrong ...

Casting Sound: Modality And Poetics In Gabriella Ghermandi’S Regina Di Fiori E Di Perle, 2016 Santa Clara Univeristy
Casting Sound: Modality And Poetics In Gabriella Ghermandi’S Regina Di Fiori E Di Perle, Laura Dolp, Eveljn Ferraro
Modern Languages & Literature
This article investigates Gabriella Ghermandi’s novel Regina di fiori e di perle (2007) through two disciplinary perspectives: the first considers music as a historical and social practice through historical observation of Ghermandi’s characters who reference Ethiopian oral traditions; the second explores the contemporary dynamics of migration and transnational identity through textual analysis that critiques how storytelling practices are carried into an Italian context. We argue that the novel reflects a dissemination of oral memory across generations and gender and into a postcolonial setting, and that its characters reflect adaptations to institutional and twentieth-century technological change. Crucially, and more ...

Facilitating Lexical Acquisition In Beginner Learners Of Italian Through Task-Induced Involvement Load, 2016 University of Tampa
Facilitating Lexical Acquisition In Beginner Learners Of Italian Through Task-Induced Involvement Load, Vanessa J. Natale Rukholm
The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal
This empirical study explores the facilitation of lexical acquisition and retention through an incidental experiment examining the effect of Involvement Load on Italian vocabulary growth among beginner learners. The experiment, with a pre-test/post-test design investigates the facilitative effects of elaborate processing on L2 lexical acquisition and retention. Participants in sections of the same first-year Italian course were divided into one of five groups consisting of a Control Group and four Treatment groups. Treatment groups were divided based on level of Involvement (Laufer & Hulstijn, 2001) such that some groups processed target words elaborately (Craik, 2002; Lockhart, 2002) through vocabulary exercises while others completed low involvement activities limited to comprehension of the lyrics ...
