Framing The “Minor” In Marjane Satrapi And Vincent Paronnaud's Persepolis, Stacey Weber-Fève 2011 Iowa State University

Framing The “Minor” In Marjane Satrapi And Vincent Paronnaud's Persepolis, Stacey Weber-Fève

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Satrapi’s work illustrates, on various levels, current debates in the profession surrounding the boundaries of twenty-first-century French and Francophone studies. For example, her texts both directly and indirectly treat in varying degree issues concerning fragmented societies and cultures; intermedial or splintering forms of artistic and cultural production; political and ethnographic boundary transgression; and continuities and differences in racial, sexual, and gender consciousness. These issues are all at the forefront in calls for papers from recent preeminent conferences in the field; including but not limited to the 2009 Modern Language Association Annual Meeting and the 2009 20th- and 21 ...


Still Free, Still Alive: Images Of Haitian Collective Values Portrayed Through Child Characters In Lamartine’S Toussaint Louverture And Agnant’S Alexis D’Haïti, Vanessa C. Marcano 2011 South Dakota State University

Still Free, Still Alive: Images Of Haitian Collective Values Portrayed Through Child Characters In Lamartine’S Toussaint Louverture And Agnant’S Alexis D’Haïti, Vanessa C. Marcano

The Journal of Undergraduate Research

In this paper, I argue that the fundamental Haitian values of the struggle for freedom and the prevailing desire for independence are portrayed through the morals and personality of two child characters found in texts set in Saint-Domingue/Haiti. The first character is a young girl named Adrienne in Alphonse de Lamartine’s play Toussaint Louverture (1850) and the second is a young boy named Alexis in Marie-Célie Agnant’s novel Alexis d’Haiti (1999). Through these two characters, Lamartine and Agnant depict Haiti’s struggle to achieve freedom and to retain its unique cultural identity that has allowed this ...

Poética De La Dictadura: El Poder De Las Palabras En La Era De Trujillo, Medar Serrata

Medar Serrata

In the year 1930, Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, a military officer of humble origin trained by the United States Marines, took the presidency of the Dominican Republic to begin one of the longest and most brutal dictatorships in the history of Latin America. His rise to power meant the beginning of a massive and continuous effort spanning thirty years to depict General Trujillo as a messianic figure predestined to rescue his nation from a long history of political disarray and economic backwardness. To lead this effort, Trujillo secured the collaboration of the country’s most prominent intellectuals, a group made up ...

Aquí Se Vende Todo: La Ciudad Y La Desmemoria En La Capital Del Olvido De Horacio Vázquez-Ria, Amalia Ran

Spanish Language and Literature

Aunque « memoria » sea la palabra más usada en el contexto histórico reciente de Argentina, es el olvido aquello de lo que más se habla, y lo que domina al final el discurso público de las últimas décadas. ¿ Cuáles son las distintas formas de « recordar » el pasado doloroso en un entorno que intenta silenciarlo al transformar la memoria en un objeto-fetiche ? ¿ De qué modo conserva el espacio urbano —la ciudad y sus múltiples lugares abiertos y cerrados— una memoria de la desgracia y del horror ?, y ¿ cómo se refleja ese espacio urbano dentro del texto narrativo ? El presente trabajo estudia la ...

Cine E Inmigración: Espacios De Inclusión Y Exclusión, Ana M. López-Aguilera 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Cine E Inmigración: Espacios De Inclusión Y Exclusión, Ana M. López-Aguilera

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

El tema de la inmigración representa una novedad para la sociedad española. Aunque habituada a las visitas de turistas extranjeros, la llegada de personas cuya estancia responde a motivos económicos y laborales (no ociosos) y que se prevé más prolongada, ha creado una nueva situación social. El cine ha respondido a este cambio incluyendo personajes inmigrantes en las obras y planteando en las mismas cuestiones relacionadas con el tema. Este tipo de cine se denomina “de inmigración” o “de inmigrantes” y muestra una preocupación de los directores por tratar contenidos sociales en sus obras. No obstante, existe una tendencia a ...
