Modelización Social En Dos Novelas Novohispanas: Vida Y Hechos Del Famoso Caballero Don Catrín De La Fachenda Y El Periquillo Sarniento, Wilfrido M. Suárez 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Modelización Social En Dos Novelas Novohispanas: Vida Y Hechos Del Famoso Caballero Don Catrín De La Fachenda Y El Periquillo Sarniento, Wilfrido M. Suárez

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

En este trabajo analizo el modelo de sociedad —es decir, cómo las personas quedan agrupadas y qué tipo de relaciones las caracterizan— propuesto en las primeras novelas que aparecen en la América hispana a principios del siglo XIX. Mi investigación parte de los conocimientos aportados por la investigación socio-histórica en cuanto a la naturaleza de la sociedad establecida por el imperio español en el continente americano y, más en particular, en la Nueva España. Destaco la situación de los criollos dentro del estamento colonial, cuyos representantes son los protagonistas de Vida y hechos del famoso caballero don Catrín de la ...

L’Écriture Migrante Comme Pratique Signifiante: L’Exemple De L’Hétérolinguisme Et De L’Écriture Fragmentaire Chez Abla Farhoud Et Ying Chen, Simona Pruteanu 2012 Wilfrid Laurier University

L’Écriture Migrante Comme Pratique Signifiante: L’Exemple De L’Hétérolinguisme Et De L’Écriture Fragmentaire Chez Abla Farhoud Et Ying Chen, Simona Pruteanu

Languages and Literatures Faculty Publications

Cet article récupère le concept d’écriture en tant que pratique signifi ante (Kristeva) en parlant de deux romans migrants québécois, L’Ingratitude de Ying Chen et Le Bonheur a la queue glissante d’Abla Farhoud, afi n de montrer comment les indices d’hétérolinguisme dans ces deux textes, en conjonction avec une poétique du fragment, créent une esthétique propre à l’expression de l’identité migrante, ou ce que nous appelons une signifi ance migrante. Nous espérons confi rmer que refuser l’ancrage dans une appartenance culturelle ou langagière unique joue un rôle capital dans l’esthétique de l ...

Modern Languages and Literatures Student Publications

The magazine Por Granada publishes the students’ final project of the course Spain in Context taught by Prof. Lamas at Fordham in Granada. Rather than the academic research paper, the preferred format is the well-informed article of investigative journalism. Topics are chosen in consultation with Prof. Lamas and Begoña Calatrava, and must involve a demanding first-hand fieldwork in Granada. A number of interviews with locals are required to have the project approved. Students are requested to find their own sources and to create an adequate network of contacts to fully understand the chosen subject matter. All articles are the result ...

Genesis 31-34 As Spanish Comedia: Lope De Vega’S El Robo De Dina, Matthew D. Stroud 2012 Trinity University

Genesis 31-34 As Spanish Comedia: Lope De Vega’S El Robo De Dina, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

Lope de Vega’s El robo de Dina, based upon Genesis 31-34, focuses on the disturbing series of events involving Jacob’s daughter, Dinah, and culminating in the mass slaughter of an entire enemy people who were doing their best to accommodate the demands of the Hebrews. The primary focus of this article is not the Biblical story itself, but rather the techniques that Lope used to adapt his source text for a comedia audience. From the amplification of the scope of the source text by the inclusion of the story of Laban and Jacob to the depiction of women ...


Beauvoir For The Masses: Exploring Applications Of Her Philosophy In French Social Revolutions Of The 1960’S, Reille Acks 2012 Valparaiso University

Beauvoir For The Masses: Exploring Applications Of Her Philosophy In French Social Revolutions Of The 1960’S, Reille Acks

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

My project examines the feminism and existentialism of Simone de Beauvoir as they intersect with the ideas of the French social movements of the1960’s, using the movement of May '68 as a primary example. Beauvoir's ideas were politically in tune with the leftist philosophy of the students and workers who organized widespread demonstrations throughout the spring of 1968 and brought the French economy to a standstill in May of that year. But I argue that her existentialist philosophy, foregrounding the necessity of each individual to create a self and to reject accepted social paradigms, reflects the demands made ...


Queer Neo-Mexicanism: Negotiating Mexican And Gay Identities In The Art Of Nahum B. Zenil And Julio Galán, Nicholas Derda 2012 Valparaiso University

Queer Neo-Mexicanism: Negotiating Mexican And Gay Identities In The Art Of Nahum B. Zenil And Julio Galán, Nicholas Derda

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

The Mexican artists Nahum B. Zenil and Julio Galán have become the poster children for being gay and Mexican in contemporary art criticism. Critics have drawn comparisons between Zenil and Galán because of their thematic treatment of gay sexuality and Mexican nationalism. These comparisons, however, have often assumed that Zenil and Galán are representing a monolithic gay sexuality that is unaffected by their social class, their relationships to nationalism and Catholicism, and their views on the role of art in social activism. This paper aims to analyze specifically how Zenil and Galán represent two distinct gay identities, all the while ...

The Sounds Of Spanglish, Ilan Stavans 2012 Illinois Math and Science Academy

The Sounds Of Spanglish, Ilan Stavans

IMSA Great Minds Program ®

With the dramatic demographic growth of Latinos in the United States, a new form of communication has come to the fore: Spanglish, a hybrid tongue using elements from English and Spanish, yet having its own identity. Millions of people use it every day to speak as well as to read and write. Outside the country, in Latin America and the Caribbean, Spanglish is also a presence. But it is in this country where its effects are more palpable. Politicians, business big and small, religious organizations, and particularly the media employ it on a regular basis. What does the emergence of ...

Reseña De La Película Smoking Room (2002), Ana M. López-Aguilera

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Una empresa española es comprada por otra estadounidense. Una de las consecuencias derivadas de esta compra es una nueva política con respecto a fumar en el lugar de trabajo. Nuevas directivas prohiben hacerlo en el área de trabajo. Si los empleados quieren fumar durante su jornada tienen que salir a la calle. Uno de ellos inicia una recogida de firmas entre los trabajadores para pedir que una habitación desocupada en el edificio de oficinas se destine a sala de fumadores o, como la definen sus desconocidos superiores estadounidenses, smoking room. A partir de esta anécdota en apariencia irrelevante y sin ...


Review Of: From The Outside Looking In: Narrative Frames And Narrative Spaces In The Short Stories Of Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman 2012 Western Washington University

Review Of: From The Outside Looking In: Narrative Frames And Narrative Spaces In The Short Stories Of Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

In a nicely bound volume of the sort for which Juan de la Cuesta is well-known, Susan Walter undertakes the study of thirteen of Emilia Pardo Bazan's short stories published between 1892 and 1909. All of these tales have in common two narrative levels - an introduction presented by one framing narrator and a central narration as told by a second, internal, narrator - thus allowing Walter to "untangle the distinct voices of narrative authority in the texts in order to uncover the ideological positioning of the tale" (22). Also, the author views such stories as "an ideal place to look ...

Gender And Heritage Spanish Bilingual Grammars: A Study Of Code-Mixed Determiner Phrases And Copula Constructions, Elena Valenzuela, Ana Faure, Alma Ramirez-Trujillo, Ewelina Barski, Yolanda Pangtay, Adriana Diez

Alma P Ramirez-Trujillo

There has been a growing interest in the examination of the steady state of simultaneous bilinguals. An understanding of what leads to the possible weaknesses in the grammar of early bilinguals can contribute to our understanding of the possible causes of the apparent characteristic ‘failures’ in second language acquisition (Montrul 2008). Spanish has a gender feature for nouns (Carroll 1989) and gender agreement for determiners and adjectives. Problems with the acquisition of gender marking on the noun and/or with gender agreement are well-known in the L2 literature (Hawkins 1998; Fernández–Garcia 1999; Franceschina 2001; Bruhn de Garavito and White ...
