La Gran Aldea De Lucio Vicente López Como Crítica De La Argentina De 1880, Vicente Gomis-Izquierdo 2013 University of Kansas Main Campus

La Gran Aldea De Lucio Vicente López Como Crítica De La Argentina De 1880, Vicente Gomis-Izquierdo

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This paper analyzes the relationship that La gran aldea (1884) proposes between the lower-middle classes and the Argentinean process of modernization in order to criticize the lack of progress due to socio-economic factors. The author, a member of the Generation of 1880, shows this criticism in the text in aspects such as education, the mix of social classes, family disintegration, the contrast between Buenos Aires in 1862 and 1882, immigration and the deficient role that the upper classes played in the development of a strong national industry and economy.


Lispector Y Valenzuela: Hacia Una Poética Del Devenir, Fatima R. Nogueira 2013 The University of Memphis

Lispector Y Valenzuela: Hacia Una Poética Del Devenir, Fatima R. Nogueira

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Considering the metaliterary focalization as well as the importance of sensible and sensorial traits in the novels El gato eficaz by Luisa Valenzuela and Un soplo de vida by Clarice Lispector this study proposes the realization of a becoming poetics in both literary works, in the sense that Deleuze and Guattari have developed the theory of becoming. Such an aesthetic is based mainly on two significant factors: first, the transformation of the subject in a virtual entity; secondly, the conversion of the discourse into a modality of becoming guided by a proliferation of voices, planes and fictions.


Criollismo Femenino Y Mestizaje En Mah Rap De Malín D’Echevers, Claudia García 2013 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Criollismo Femenino Y Mestizaje En Mah Rap De Malín D’Echevers, Claudia García

Foreign Languages and Literature Faculty Publications

Este ensayo propone una lectura de Mah Rap (1946) de la guatemalteca Malín D’Echevers, que articula l novela con la teosofía, el regeneracionismo y el feminismo moderado de la época, mostrando cómo la autora constituye una versión femenina del criollismo. A partir del cruce de este género con elementos de la novela sentimental y la hist6rica, y recurriendo a elementos autobiograficos que determinan una cercanía personal o familiar con el material histórico así como una simpatía interior con el mundo indígena plasmados en la novela, D’Echevers se desvía de los tópicos del criollismo masculino e inscribe la progresiva ...


Writing The Visual In "Baroni: Un Viaje" And Other Recent Work By Sergio Chejfec, Margaret Carson 2013 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Writing The Visual In "Baroni: Un Viaje" And Other Recent Work By Sergio Chejfec, Margaret Carson

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation has three parts. First, I explore the ways in which word intersects with image in several recent texts by the contemporary Argentine writer Sergio Chejfec, whose oeuvre is replete with verbal descriptions of visual artifacts. Second, as a complement to the critical essay, I present my English translation of Chejfec's Baroni: un viaje (2007), a novel featuring the Venezuelan artist Rafaela Baroni, whose extraordinary wood carvings of Virgins, saints and other figures are described in key passages. Third, as a bridge between these two parts, I reflect on the related critical discourses of ekphrasis and translation and ...

An Allegory For Life: An 18th Century African-Influenced Cemetery Landscape, Nassau, Bahamas, Grace S. Turner 2013 College of William & Mary - Arts & Sciences

An Allegory For Life: An 18th Century African-Influenced Cemetery Landscape, Nassau, Bahamas, Grace S. Turner

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

I use W.E.B. Du Bois' reference to the worlds 'within and without the veil' as the narrative setting for presenting the case of an African-Bahamian urban cemetery in use from the early eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. I argue that people of African descent lived what Du Bois termed a 'double consciousness.' Thus, the ways in which they shaped and changed this cemetery landscape reflect the complexities of their lives. Since the material expressions of this cemetery landscape represent the cultural perspectives of the affiliated communities so changes in its maintenance constitute archaeologically visible evidence of ...


The Rebirth Of Chile In Relation To Childbirth And Female Pain, Melissa Carella 2013 Salem State University

The Rebirth Of Chile In Relation To Childbirth And Female Pain, Melissa Carella

Honors Theses

Chilean novelists Isabel Allende and Diamela Eltit wrote during a time in which Augusto Pinochet’s reign created chaos within the government and suffering for its citizens. In the works The House of the Spirits by Allende and The Fourth World by Eltit, emphasis is placed on the female characters’ inability to have full freedom of speech, and also how the burdens of conceiving a child and giving birth became not just an infliction upon their bodies but upon their existence as women in a disadvantaged society. By analyzing the conceptions, pregnancies, and births of various characters in the novels ...

Aprendices, Fabriqueras Y Obreros: El Trabajo Industrial En La Narrativa Argentina Del Siglo Xx (1930-2007), Karina Elizabeth Vázquez

Bookshelf

El tema central de este libro es la relación entre trabajo, literatura y cultura tal como ésta aparece representada en las figuraciones literarias del trabajo industrial. No obstante, la propuesta analítica de la autora va más allá de los aspectos narratológicos de los textos estudiados e indaga el conjunto de discursos socioculturales y políticos sobre la historia argentina de los últimos setenta años con los cuales los discursos literarios y críticos han estado en continuo diálogo. Las experiencias de ascenso social, el ingreso masivo de las mujeres al mercado de trabajo, la incorporación de los asalariados al escenario político, el ...

"A Medley Of Contradictions": The Jewish Diaspora In St Eustatius And Barbados, Derek Robert Miller 2013 College of William & Mary - Arts & Sciences

"A Medley Of Contradictions": The Jewish Diaspora In St Eustatius And Barbados, Derek Robert Miller

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

During the 17th and 18th century a number of Jews settled on the English island of Barbados and the Dutch island of St. Eustatius. The Jews on both islands erected synagogues and a number of key structures essential for a practicing religious community. Although they had strong connections that spanned across geo-political boundaries, the synagogue compounds on each island became key places for the creation and maintenance of a Jewish community. I argue that these synagogue compounds represented diasporic places that must be understood through a tri-partite model that explores the relationships between the Jewish community and its hostland, other ...

Everything In Di Dark Muss Come To Light: A Postcolonial Investigation Of The Practice Of Extra Lessons At The Secondary Level In Jamaica's Education System, Saran Stewart 2013 University of Denver

Everything In Di Dark Muss Come To Light: A Postcolonial Investigation Of The Practice Of Extra Lessons At The Secondary Level In Jamaica's Education System, Saran Stewart

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Despite the vast research examining the evolution of Caribbean education systems, little is chronologically tied to the postcolonial theoretical perspectives of specific island-state systems, such as the Jamaican education system and its relationship with the underground shadow education system. This dissertation study sought to address the gaps in the literature by critically positioning postcolonial theories in education to examine the macro- and micro-level impacts of extra lessons on secondary education in Jamaica. The following postcolonial theoretical (PCT) tenets in education were contextualized from a review of the literature: (a) PCT in education uses colonial discourse analysis to critically deconstruct and ...

This study assesses the origins of Arizona’s state-sponsored immigration policy. It attempts to identify the social dynamics within Arizona that contributed to the overwhelming public support for SB 1070. Since it has been two years after the law was passed, this analysis determines what impact the law has had thus far within the state. Finally, it postulates the future of Arizona’s immigration policy.


The Triumph Within: Carolina Maria De Jesus And Strategies For Black Female Empowerment In Brazil, Dawn Duke 2012 Selected Works

The Triumph Within: Carolina Maria De Jesus And Strategies For Black Female Empowerment In Brazil, Dawn Duke

Dawn Duke

After generations of being rendered virtually invisible by the US academy in critical anthologies and literary histories, writing by Latin Americans of African ancestry has become represented by a booming corpus of intellectual and critical investigation. This volume aims to provide an introduction to the literary worlds and perceptions of national culture and identity of authors from Spanish-America, Brazil, and uniquely, Equatorial Guinea, thus contextually connecting Africa to the history of Spanish colonization. The importance of Latin America literature to the discipline of African Diaspora studies is immeasurable, and this edited collection provides a ripe cultural context for critical comparative ...
