Modern Chinese Development Of Latin America, Alexander Tripp 2019 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Modern Chinese Development Of Latin America, Alexander Tripp

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

China, a rising global hegemon, has become increasingly interested in close economic and political relations with Latin America since the turn of the century. These relationships have been centered around two traits, foreign direct investment (FDI) and the export of raw materials. China has fully invested itself into the region in order to develop and maintain the production of certain goods necessary for upkeep of its massive population and industrializing economy. I test the significance of four prominent raw materials in Chinese trade with Latin America to determine their impact on Chinese FDI. Using this method, I gather and gauge ...


A Pilgrim’S Progress For The Digital, Post-Human(Ist) Age?: Social And Religious Allegory In Russell Banks’S Lost Memory Of Skin, DAVID J. BUEHRER Dr. 2019 Valdosta State University

A Pilgrim’S Progress For The Digital, Post-Human(Ist) Age?: Social And Religious Allegory In Russell Banks’S Lost Memory Of Skin, David J. Buehrer Dr.

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

In Lost Memory of Skin (2011), his twelfth novel, Russell Banks continues his exploration of the dark underbelly of American society—in this instance, the moral wilderness of a group of convicted sex offenders exiled to living beneath a concrete causeway in the south Florida city of Calusa, a fictionalized Miami. Banks, who has long been “our premier chronicler of the doomed and forgotten American male” (Schulman 8), focuses in Lost on a twenty-two-year-old parolee referred to throughout only as “The Kid.” While guilty and duly convicted of propositioning an underage girl online for sex, The Kid is still presented ...


Realismo Y Exasperación: Un Estudio De Los Personajes Femeninos En La Pata De La Sota Y La Nona De Roberto Cossa, Mariana Pensa 2019 UCLA Extension

Realismo Y Exasperación: Un Estudio De Los Personajes Femeninos En La Pata De La Sota Y La Nona De Roberto Cossa, Mariana Pensa

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

En esta presentación analizamos las obras teatrales La pata de la sota (1967) y La Nona (1977), del dramaturgo argentino Roberto Cossa. Estos textos se constituyen en textos-faro del subsistema teatral del realismo reflexivo. El primero, uno que define la ortodoxia del universo realista, mientras que el segundo la supera, incorporando un universo muy cercano al absurdo y el sin sentido. Trabajando, entonces, desde las coordenadas del realismo y su evolución, nos focalizamos aquí en la relación madre-hija, para señalar cuáles y cómo son los cambios en la construcción de los personajes femeninos en el pasaje de una fase a ...

La Reproducción De Negritud In Murales Y Estatus En Esmeraldas, Ecuador, Ethan Johnson 2019 Selected Works

La Reproducción De Negritud In Murales Y Estatus En Esmeraldas, Ecuador, Ethan Johnson

Ethan Johnson

En Ecuador y en otras partes de América Latina el racismo Anti-negro se ha estructurado a través del discurso dominante de la identidad nacional, el mestizaje o la mezcla racial y cultural. El discurso dominante de la identidad nacional en América Latina resultó de los esfuerzos de los grupos de élite para desarrollar ideologías en respuesta a la crisis percibida en sus naciones europeas sobre todo no blancas. Para evitar el estigma asociado a las personas negras e indígenas estas elites desarrollaron el concepto de mestizaje, es decir, mezcla racial y cultural. Sin embargo, estas élites también mantuvieron las jerarquías ...


Herencia Y Memoria Afro En Las Américas. Una Mirada A La Pedagogía Desde Los Saberes Afrodescendientes, Ethan Johnson 2019 Porland State University

Herencia Y Memoria Afro En Las Américas. Una Mirada A La Pedagogía Desde Los Saberes Afrodescendientes, Ethan Johnson

Ethan Johnson

Mis pensamientos sobre los aportes de la gente de ascendencia africana en América Latina empiezan de mis ideas del mismo grupo de América del Norte. Primero, quiero decir que no soy un investigador sobre la influencia de la cultura africana en la Américas. No es que no tengo interés en África, solo es que siempre me haya sentido muy lejos de África. Para mi era el racismo, interpersonal e institucional, que era lo más central en mi vida creciendo en los Estados Unidos. Espero que ustedes no lo tomen esto como un ejemplo de lo tanto que estoy colonializado, pero ...

El Crimen Institucional, Hannah Anderson 2019 Pepperdine University

El Crimen Institucional, Hannah Anderson

Global Tides

From the beginning of human civilization, various levels of society have been clearly stratified. Larger, stronger groups, those with more resources and might, have been able to wield power over the alternate side of the spectrum. In modern society, we are able to see this through institutionalized crime. Through this research, the Chilean dictatorship in the late twentieth century will be analyzed from society’s literary and cinematic response. Through the film No directed by Pablo Larraín, and Ramón Díaz Eterovic’s novel La ciudad está triste, we can begin to understand the perspective of the institution through the lens ...


Tracing Trans Bodies In Neobaroque Literature, Huber David Jaramillo Gil 2019 The Graduate Center, CUNY

Tracing Trans Bodies In Neobaroque Literature, Huber David Jaramillo Gil

Publications and Research

This document briefly explores the ways in which trans people have been written through Baroque aesthetics in the social and cultural imaginary of Latin America, despite the various unjust forces that have attempted to make them invisible and exclude them from the national narrative. The differences between Severo Sarduy’s Neobaroque, Néstor Perlongher’s Neobarroso, and Pedro Lemebel’s Neobarrocho are analyzed, while exploring their individual limitations and potentialities for voicing the joys and pains of being trans in an exclusionary society.

Listening With Humility, Diana Gonzalez 2019 Northwestern College - Orange City

Listening With Humility, Diana Gonzalez

Northwestern Review

Presented in 2017 at the Internationalizing Christian Higher Education conference of the International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE) at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan, this paper extends the results presented in the author’s 2016 paper, “Culturally and Linguistically Humble: A Preparation for Living Abroad.” Taking the virtue of humility and integrating that into the training for Northwestern College students going abroad for a semester, the author’s new paper both establishes how reflecting on humility has helped students to engage cross-culturally and also links humility with the conference theme of “listening to learn; learning to ...

Comandantas And Caracoles: The Role Of Women In The Life And Legacy Of The Zapatista Movement, Roxanne Rozo-Marsh 2019 Claremont Colleges

Comandantas And Caracoles: The Role Of Women In The Life And Legacy Of The Zapatista Movement, Roxanne Rozo-Marsh

Scripps Senior Theses

This thesis delves into the role of women in the Zapatista movement and how that role has changed over time in the private, public and political spheres. It also draws parallels between the struggle for female liberation within Zapatismo and the struggles of working-class, women of color movements in the United States. Chapters are focused on topics including women's involvement in the San Andrés Accords, the Women's Revolutionary Law, the Other Campaign and Marichuy's electoral campaign as well as personal observations from time spent in Oventik, a Zapatista caracol. As complement to the text, the thesis includes ...
