Documented: The Colonial Archive And The Future Of The Americas, 2018 Florida International University

Documented: The Colonial Archive And The Future Of The Americas

Hemisphere

In the last three years, guest editor Bianca Premo has participated in and led a series of hemisphere-wide seminars on the archives of colonial Latin America, specifically what the historical record reveals and what it hides, and how records affect the stories we tell and the lives we lead. For example, one of the objectives of opening the archives is to tell the human stories of the colonial disempowered and use those to better understand today's disenfranchised. This approach to examining the archives reveals far more than past accounts and parallels to the present; in many ways it also ...


De Crepusculares Y Garotas Modernas: Las Columnas Travestidas De Alfonsina Storni Y Clarice Lispector, Mariela Méndez 2018 University of Richmond

De Crepusculares Y Garotas Modernas: Las Columnas Travestidas De Alfonsina Storni Y Clarice Lispector, Mariela Méndez

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Este artículo se propone resaltar el gesto transgresor de Alfonsina Storni y Clarice Lispector, oponiéndolo al de Alejo Carpentier, a partir de la travestización que cada una realiza de un espacio discursivo tan altamente codificado, estructurado, como arguye Dulcília Schroeder Buitoni, en torno a la tríada moda/casa/corazón (Imprensa Feminina 15). Entendiendo al acto travesti como la performance sobreactuada de lo que culturalmente es etiquetado como femenino o masculino, el análisis revela las formas en que Storni y Lispector instauran una voz y una mirada que se adelantan a las teorías contemporáneas sobre el carácter performativo del género. Las ...

Remembering Violent Pasts In Argentina And Chile: An Exploration Of Diverging Memorial Landscapes, Zara Ferro 2018 Bard College

Remembering Violent Pasts In Argentina And Chile: An Exploration Of Diverging Memorial Landscapes, Zara Ferro

Senior Projects Spring 2018

What can explain Argentina and Chile’s post-dictatorial divergence in modes of memorializing violent pasts, considering they underwent similar brutal dictatorships and essentially simultaneous transitions to democracy? While in Argentina, public memorials convey a sense of retribution toward the old regime; in Chile, these memorials emphasize reconciliation and a desire to move on from past violence. Looking beyond differences in their democratic transitions and the state of their economies pre- and post-dictatorship, this project identifies activism of human rights organizations as the primary variable for understanding different textures in the politics of memorializing in Argentina and Chile. In Argentina, the ...


Who Controls Haiti's Destiny? A Examination Of Haiti's Underdevelopment, Endless Poverty, And The Role Played By Ngos, Patrick Scheld 2018 University of Vermont

Who Controls Haiti's Destiny? A Examination Of Haiti's Underdevelopment, Endless Poverty, And The Role Played By Ngos, Patrick Scheld

Graduate College Dissertations and Theses

The presence of NGOs and development agencies is often considered an apolitical phenomenon, and that the very presence of NGOs within a country is a symbol of a global humanity in action; in short, NGOs equal charity which equals good work. Unfortunately, the reality is often much more complicated as NGOs can also be found to be self-serving, anti-democratic and strictly in pursuit of their next funding source. In this thesis I advance the central hypothesis that the international community’s continued pursuit of an NGO-led neoliberal economic development model has systematically failed to contribute to the sustainable development of ...


Fake News: Latinos, Representacion, Ciudadanizo Y Trump, Grace Thieme 2018 Claremont Colleges

Fake News: Latinos, Representacion, Ciudadanizo Y Trump, Grace Thieme

Scripps Senior Theses

This thesis uses in-depth analysis of historical Los Angeles Times articles to trace the changing representations of the Latino community in the media. Focusing on themes of patriotism and citizenship, this thesis draws out the subtleties of syntax and semantics that silently influence public opinion. The Zoot Suit Riots and the Chicano Moratorium serve as the main historical backdrop, leading to a concluding exploration of Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric surrounding immigration and the Latino community.


The Promise And Perils Of Radical Left Populism: The Case Of Venezuela., Gabriel Hetland 2018 University at Albany, State University of New York

The Promise And Perils Of Radical Left Populism: The Case Of Venezuela., Gabriel Hetland

Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Studies Faculty Scholarship

Mainstream critics argue that populism inevitably leads to economic disaster and political authoritarianism. Venezuela is often pointed to as proof of this. Yet, while the profound crisis gripping Venezuela is undeniable, comprehensive analysis of Chavismo shows that populism, and specifically the radical left populism found in Venezuela, is more ambiguous. From 2005-2013 radical left populism in Venezuela reduced poverty and inequality, deepened democracy, and built popular support for a "transition to socialism." These gains were erased in the post-2014 crisis, which revealed two flaws of the Chavista model hidden by its earlier success: its unsustainable material foundation and inability to ...


El Viaje Desde Centroamérica A Los Estados Unidos: How Us Foreign Policy Impacts Migration From Central America To The United States, Cecilia Cerja 2018 James Madison University

El Viaje Desde Centroamérica A Los Estados Unidos: How Us Foreign Policy Impacts Migration From Central America To The United States, Cecilia Cerja

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

In the face of ever increasing civil conflict in Central America, the United States is attempting to grapple with immigration reform as the number of refugees continues to rise. Though the dominant narrative seems to indicate that people are flocking to the United States for economic opportunity, upon further analysis it seems that there are a variety of push and pull factors for migration to the United States. In this thesis three case studies of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala are analyzed to determine the push and pull factors causing migration to the United States. After examining the push and ...

Guitar Arrangements Of Selected Danzas Of Juan F. Acosta, With New Considerations Of His Music And Musical Life, Hermelindo Ruiz Mestre

Theses and Dissertations--Music

Juan Francisco Acosta (1890-1968) was a prolific composer, band conductor, and educator from Puerto Rico who created 1,256 original compositions. Even though his activities and influence were integral to the musical life of Puerto Rico in the twentieth century, many details of his life and works remain unknown.

This project centers on Acosta’s contribution to the Puerto Rican tradition of the danza—a dance-based genre originating in the nineteenth centurythrough the study and arrangement of five of Acosta's danzas. Although Acosta composed most danzas for piano, he adapted them for performances by the municipal bands that ...

Jenyffer Nascimento’S Epic Poetry Of Black Female Empowerment Jenyffer Nascimento: A Poesia Épica De Empoderamento Da Mulher Negra, Sarah S. Ohmer

Publications and Research

This article presents results of auto-ethnography, literary analysis, and fieldwork research to answer an underlying, perhaps unresolved, concern, relevant to this dossier: how can we produce an ethical dialogue as transnational Black Feminists, among Black Brazilian women, and North American Black women, in an ethical manner, while realizing that one may (not ever) be a part of the “carnival without you in it.” Fertile Earth/ Terra Fertil tells a long overdue epic story to an audience within the poetry: Black women, family members, other times a Black man, Brazil, white women, or “you,” undefined. Joy to pain to chaos, sensuality ...
