‘Dritter Raum’ Und ‘Hybridität’: Der Fall Des Argentinisch-Deutschen Schriftstellers Robert(O) Schopflocher, Reinhard Andress 2018 Loyola University Chicago

‘Dritter Raum’ Und ‘Hybridität’: Der Fall Des Argentinisch-Deutschen Schriftstellers Robert(O) Schopflocher, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

The percentage of German immigrants in Argentina, measured by the total population of the country, never exceeded the 2% threshold, but their integration took many different forms. ' This was already proven by the 2008 colloquium in Buenos Aires on the subject "La inserci6n de la minoria alemana en Argentina entre 1900 y 1933" (published in 2008 as Volume IV of the Anuario Argentino de Germanfstica). Even this colloquium, which does not commit itself to any period of time, will further broaden the integration therna. What makes the writer Robert {o) Schopflocher interesting in this context is an incorporation in Argentina ...

Erinnerungen An Robert(O) Schopflocher: Ein Multikulturelles Leben Als Vorbild, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Ich kam vor etwa zehn Jahren auf Robert Schopflocher zunächst über seine Doppelsprachigkeit. Damit meine ich nicht nur eine relativ beliebige Mehrsprachigkeit, sondern auch die Fähigkeit, literarisch in zwei Sprachen schreiben zu können, oft als Ergebnis des Exils. In seinem ersten Erzählband auf Deutsch, Wie Reb Froike die Welt rettete, las ich mich fest, und da ich Spanisch durch Studium und Ehe kann, nahm ich mir ebenfalls seine früheren, in der Sprache geschriebenen Texte vor, etwa den Erzählband Ventana abierta (Offenes Fenster) oder den Roman Extraños negocios (Seltsame Geschäfte). Auch seine weiteren Bücher auf Deutsch schaffte ich mir immer schnell ...

Fritz Kalmars “Das Wunder Von Büttelsburg”: Eine Österreichische Stimme Aus Dem Südamerikanischen Exil Zur Vergangenheitsbewältigung, Reinhard Andress 2018 Loyola University Chicago

Fritz Kalmars “Das Wunder Von Büttelsburg”: Eine Österreichische Stimme Aus Dem Südamerikanischen Exil Zur Vergangenheitsbewältigung, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Fritz Kalmar, 1911 in Wien geboren und aufgewachsen, studierte Jura und arbeitete zunächst in einer Anwaltskanzlei, bevor ihn der „Anschluss” 1938 zur Flucht zwang. Er landete schließlich in Bolivien, wo er bei einem deutsch-englischen Nachrichtensender in La Paz Arbeit fand und 1941 zum Mitbegründer der Federación de los Austríacos Libres wurde, die sich überparteilich antifaschistischen und karitativen Tätigkeiten widmete. Ebenfalls wurde er Schauspieler und Bühnenautor einer österreichischen Theatergruppe um Georg Terramare und Erna Terrel. 1953 heiratete er Terrel, und zusammen zogen sie nach Montevideo, wo Kalmar seine künstlerische Arbeit fortsetzte. Später als Konsul Österreichs in Uruguay konnte er politischen Gefangenen ...


Coarticulation In Two Fricative-Vowel Sequences Of Latin American Spanish, Jeff Renaud 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Coarticulation In Two Fricative-Vowel Sequences Of Latin American Spanish, Jeff Renaud

Celebration of Learning

Dialectal surveys of Latin American Spanish (Perissinotto 1975, Resnick 1975) describe three main possible pronunciations for fu (fuego 'fire') and fo (foco 'focus') sequences: faithful [f], velarized [x], and bilabialized [ɸ], in order of frequency. While the velar realization has received phonetic and theoretical consideration (Lipski 1995, Mazzaro 2011), little is understood about the voiceless bilabial fricative [ɸ] in Spanish. This paper describes a three-part production study to uniformly account for the unfaithful velar and bilabial realizations.

Mazzaro (2011) explains the velar [x] variant by arguing that, given the acoustic similarity of, e.g., [fu]/[xu], listeners misperceive a speaker ...

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender 2018 Fordham University

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender

Student Theses 2015-Present

This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...


From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, Rita Ewing 2018 The University of San Francisco

From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, Rita Ewing

Master's Theses

In the field of migration studies, research on transnationalism has been well

established. Applying an intersectional framework of post-colonial narrative and

linguistic anthropology to transnational migration, this research allows us to better

understand how the transnational immigrant deploys language. Through a nostalgia

studies approach, this study is able to analyze how transnational immigrants place value

on their heritage and second languages, and reflexively deploy their language sets to

reflect their unique positionality. This paper is a case study examination of five adult

members of the 1.5-generation of Filipin(a/o) American immigrants, who immigrated to

the US before the ...

The University Honors Program

La Grande Guerre : une guerre de seulement quatre années de durée, mais qui était le résultat de tensions historiques et dont les sillages avaient amené à la deuxième guerre mondiale trois décennies plus tard. Pendant ces quatre années, plus d’un million trois cents de soldats français sont morts ou disparus et quatre millions blessés (Winter 1077). Comme on peut imaginer, cela eu de grands effets pour la France. Aujourd’hui on entend parler de cette « guerre pour mettre fin à toutes les guerres » souvent comme cause de la deuxième guerre mondiale. Les « poilus », « les tranchées », Verdun, et Joffre sont ...

The Collaborative Function Of Verbal Aspect And Aktionsart: A Distributional Analysis Of English Verb-Types, Marc A. Agee 2018 Cedarville University

The Collaborative Function Of Verbal Aspect And Aktionsart: A Distributional Analysis Of English Verb-Types, Marc A. Agee

Linguistics Senior Research Projects

This paper reviews literature in aspect studies from modern linguistics and Biblical language studies and proposes syntheses of multiple definitions given for these often-confusing verbal categories as the discussion has progressed from the Nineteenth Century to the present day. To inform these definitions, key studies such as Bache (1982), Comrie (1981), Lyons (1977), and Porter (1989) are consulted. In addition to suggesting definitions for these, this paper also discusses the best way to understand aktionsart as it functions in several related languages, and as it relates to aspect in usage. An analysis of evidence for this description as it functions ...


The Cool Medium. The Global Pedagogy Of Eportfolio In The Foreign Language Classroom, Giulia Guarnieri 2018 CUNY Bronx Community College

The Cool Medium. The Global Pedagogy Of Eportfolio In The Foreign Language Classroom, Giulia Guarnieri

Publications and Research

The student-centered and integrative pedagogy of ePortfolio finds perfect applicability in the foreign language classroom. In contrast, textbooks for Italian language elementary courses, for the most part, implement a traditional and grammatical based methodological approach which hiders the process of ePortfolio integration which instead places greater emphasis on global and integrative pedagogy. The study discusses the implications these factors hold in preparing foreign languages instructors to use ePortfolio technology underlining its role as a cool medium which provides meaningful impact on student learning and participation

El Español En El Pueblo Ngäbe. Factores Fonológicos Y Morfológicos, Kafda I. Vergara Esturaín 2018 University of New Mexico

El Español En El Pueblo Ngäbe. Factores Fonológicos Y Morfológicos, Kafda I. Vergara Esturaín

Spanish and Portuguese ETDs

This study examines phonological and morphological features involved in the release of plural marking –s in nominal phrases of Spanish as a second language (L2). The linguistic variety belongs to Spanish spoken by members of the Ngäbe pueblo of Panama.

Despite the preference of final /s/ deletion in Panamanian Spanish, morphology seems to activate the production of plural marking –s in certain nominal phrases. Meanwhile, other circumstances stimulating the application of alternative strategies for plural marks are detected.

This study also includes questions about the influence of the first language (L1), particularly by comparing Ngäbere and Spanish nominal phrases. It ...


Fresa Style In Mexico: Sociolinguistic Stereotypes And The Variability Of Social Meanings, Rebeca Martinez Gomez 2018 University of New Mexico - Main Campus

Fresa Style In Mexico: Sociolinguistic Stereotypes And The Variability Of Social Meanings, Rebeca Martinez Gomez

Linguistics ETDs

This dissertation examines the flexibility in the social meanings of sociolinguistic stereotypes and how linguistic and non-linguistic information affect these meanings. The investigation consists of four empirical studies surrounding the case of fresas in Mexico –members of the upper class that are perceived as using a unique linguistic style.

Study 1 investigates the linguistic and non-linguistic characteristics associated with the fresa stereotype. Through a qualitative analysis of 64 webpages and 3 performances of the style, it is shown that fresasare perceived as the counterpart of another construct, nacos,and that their linguistic style is linked to English due to ...


The Parallels Of White Supremacy Discourse In Bitita’S Diary And Racism In A Racial Democracy, Jerry Scruggs 2018 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Parallels Of White Supremacy Discourse In Bitita’S Diary And Racism In A Racial Democracy, Jerry Scruggs

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

This paper explores the workings of white supremacy within a rural Brazilian context. France Winddance Twine’s Racism in a Racial Democracy serves as an ideological basis for this analysis of Carolina Maria de Jesus’s Bitita’s Diary, and shows how systemic and rampant white supremacy has weighed on the psyche of Afro-Brazilians and how it persists to the present day.


Business And Plurilingualism: The Advantage Of A Foreign Language, Anabelis E. Martinez 2018 Andrews University

Business And Plurilingualism: The Advantage Of A Foreign Language, Anabelis E. Martinez

Honors Theses

Nowadays, global economy has implications that suggest the need for an adaptation to operate efficiently in this new environment. Is bilingualism a skill that professionals should be acquiring? To investigate this aspect, I am researching how many online job postings come out over the course of a week asking for language proficiency across three different business specialties (Accounting, Management and Marketing). My project will answer the following questions: How often do job openings require bilingualism within the sample? Which states have a higher demand for bilingual candidates? And which languages are the most sought after?


La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa 2018 UCLA Extension

La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

Nos proponemos realizar un análisis del film argentino Un oso rojo (2002, dirigido por Israel Adrián Caetano). Un punto de entrada para el análisis nos remite al concepto mismo de lo que es una ciudad, tal como Lewis Mumford lo expone en su canónico artículo “What is a city?”. Si la ciudad se constituye, al decir de Mumford, en espacio simbólico de “unidad colectiva”, en donde los hombres realizan sus actividades mas “útiles”, las preguntas a las que nos llevan estos conceptos serán ¿cuál es el estatuto de una ciudad recorrida por la violencia? ¿Cómo el espacio refiere y significa ...
