Faculty Works: Clinical Mental Health Counseling

This chapter outlines the main concepts in the linguistic study of American Sign Language (ASL), a language used by deaf people in the United States and a large part of Canada. While the study of languages has been around for centuries, the vast majority of research has focused on spoken languages; approaching the signs used by deaf people as full-fledged, natural languages in their own right and therefore equally worthy of linguistic study is a relatively new concept. The first documented linguistic studies of signed language in the United States were carried out in the late 1950s and early 1960s ...

Cartografías Urbanas Y Marítimas: Género Y Modernismo En Concha Méndez, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Concha Méndez encarnó la modernidad tanto en su producción literaria como en su participación cultural y trayectoria vital. Ella misma lo afirma al comienzo de sus memorias: "Yo he visto nacer todos los inventos del siglo. Nací en medio de la modernidad, del canto a los medios de transporte, a la velocidad, al vuelo" (29). Fue poeta, dramaturga, guionista de cine, editora, campeona de natación, y en todas estas actividades siempre la impulsó el deseo de aventuras y de nuevas experiencias. A través de su amistad con Federico García Lorca, Rafael Alberti y Maruja Mallo, entre otros, incursionó en los ...

Writing Chinuk Wawa: A Materials Development Case Study, Sarah A. Braun Hamilton

This study explored the development of new texts by fluent non-native speakers of Chinuk Wawa, an endangered indigenous contact language of the Pacific Northwest United States. The texts were developed as part of the language and culture program of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon for use in university-sponsored language classes. The collaborative process of developing 12 texts was explored through detailed revision analysis and interviews with the materials developers and other stakeholders.

Fluent non-native speakers relied on collaboration, historical documentation, reference materials, grammatical models, and their own intuitions and cultural sensibilities to develop texts that ...

Cross-Dressing And Lesbian Representation In Belle Époque By Fernando Trueba, Nuria Cruz-Camara 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Cross-Dressing And Lesbian Representation In Belle Époque By Fernando Trueba, Nuria Cruz-Camara

Nuria Cruz-Camara

"The Oscar-winning film Belle Époque (1992), directed by Fernando Trueba, systematically deconstructs patriarchal forms of masculinities by mocking the “Iberian macho” stereotype, by representing actively desiring women, and by allegedly making the male protagonist the object of the female gaze. The inversion of traditional gender roles throughout the film reaches its peak at the carnival cross-dressing sequence, when Violeta, dressed as a male soldier, aggressively seduces Fernando, dressed as a maid, and maintains total control over the love-making process. However, as I will demonstrate in this article, this seemingly subversive reversal of sexual identities is superficial and, in fact, reinstates ...
