Trace Elements, Cathy Theresa Thomas 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

Trace Elements, Cathy Theresa Thomas

English Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Leona James wants to remember her life before she dies, and after others have written about her. Now in her nineties, her personal life is a negative space set around amassed praise and awards that emerge from a scientific discovery she made in her twenties. Old age compels Leona to (re)trace her life with a process called PreEmpt (Premortis Extractable Mnemonic Product & Technologies). Their motto is: “How do you want to be remembered?” This narrative woofs and warps past and future leaving the “present” ambiguous as Leona tempers demons. Her first person narration breaks down into a shared space ...


The Life And Work Of Gloria Anzaldúa: An Intellectual Biography, Elizabeth Anne Dahms 2012 University of Kentucky

The Life And Work Of Gloria Anzaldúa: An Intellectual Biography, Elizabeth Anne Dahms

Theses and Dissertations--Hispanic Studies

The writings and life of Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa (1942-2004) have had an immense impact in a variety of disciplines. Her oft-cited text Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987) is included in many university courses’ reading lists for its contributions to discourses of hybridity, linguistics, intersectionality and women of color feminism, among others. Unfortunately, most scholars content themselves with the intricacies of Borderlands to the neglect of her corpus of work, which includes essays, books, edited volumes, children’s literature and fiction/autohistorias. This analysis presented here wishes to expand our understandings of Anzaldúa’s work by engaging with her ...

The Representation Of Traumatic Realism In The Early Novels Of Martín Caparrós, Paul Alexander Roggendorff 2012 University of Kentucky

The Representation Of Traumatic Realism In The Early Novels Of Martín Caparrós, Paul Alexander Roggendorff

Theses and Dissertations--Hispanic Studies

The Spanish expression haciendo memoria is almost always translated as "remembering." I chose the literal translation "making memory" because it more adequately describes the task of mourning that takes place when dealing with trauma. Psychology tells us that when a traumatic event occurs, only a non-narrative imprint of an event is recorded--seared--in the mind, and the narrative form must be created. Only then can it be mentally manipulated and even communicated and --in both a literal and literary sense-- made history.

The trauma explored in this study is centered on the dirty war in Argentina of the 1970’s and ...


Ayllu On The Airwaves: Rap, Reform, & Redemption On Aymara National Radio, Karl Frederic Swinehart 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Ayllu On The Airwaves: Rap, Reform, & Redemption On Aymara National Radio, Karl Frederic Swinehart

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

Of the indigenous languages of the Americas, Aymara counts among the few with more than one million speakers; yet, in the country with its greatest number of speakers, Bolivia, concerns of language shift to Spanish are widespread, making it the focus of varied political, linguistic, educational, and cultural interventions. This dissertation provides a comparative linguistic ethnographic account of three media platforms in Bolivia from which models of Aymara language emanate-a Jesuit radio station, a hip-hop collective, and the radio station of the Aymara Education Council--to address the following questions: In what ways do these centers of institutional authority advance or ...


Monstruos, Maniobras Y Mundos: Lo Fantástico En La Narrativa Cubana, 1910-2010, Sandra M. Casanova-Vizcaíno 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Monstruos, Maniobras Y Mundos: Lo Fantástico En La Narrativa Cubana, 1910-2010, Sandra M. Casanova-Vizcaíno

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

This dissertation examines the Fantastic mode in Cuban narrative between 1910 and 2010. Each chapter explores the work of a different author to explore the ways in which the Fantastic manifests and evolves vis à vis other literary modes present in Cuban literature, such as Naturalism and the Marvellous Real. In chapter one, “‘El confesor de monstruos’: Alfonso Hernández Catá y el fantástico-gótico,” I suggest that in several of Hernández Catá’s short stories in Los frutos ácidos (1915), Piedras preciosas (1924), Manicomio (1931) and Cuatro libras de felicidad (1933), grotesque and monstrous bodies are the site of horror and ...


Theaters Of Power: Inka Imperial Performance, Lawrence S. Coben 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Theaters Of Power: Inka Imperial Performance, Lawrence S. Coben

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

Military and police power has proven time and again to be necessary but not sufficient to create and maintain an empire. Empires must employ a multitude of strategies to expand and survive, one of the most important of which is state-sanctioned public spectacles, ceremonies, and rituals. This dissertation examines the roles of these large-scale non-quotidian performances that are organized and directed by political agents, occur generally at specified times and locations, and include elements of the spectacular, theatricality, cosmological invocation, and feasting.

These, state-sanctioned public spectacles, ceremonies, and rituals, have received inadequate attention from archaeologists. Archaeologists traditionally focused on the ...

If I Value Myself, I Value School: The Protective Effect Of Self-Esteem Among Abused Females, Kelly B.T. Chang, Diomaris E. Jurecska, Chloe E. Lee-Zorn, Joav Merrick

Faculty Publications - Psychology Department

Children who have been severely maltreated tend to perform significantly below their non-maltreated peers in standardized tests, earn lower grades and have the most discipline issues in the school setting. There is evidence that self-esteem (SE) may be a protective factor for youth with regard to negative emotional outcomes. The role of self-esteem needs to be explored further in more collectivistic cultures. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between physical abuse, SE and school attitudes. Participants included 14 females rescued from a city landfi ll in Nicaragua (ages 7 – 17 years, M = 12.44), half of ...
