¿Poder Del Discurso O Discurso De Poder? La Representación De Los Migrantes Ecuatorianos En La Utopía De Madrid, Francesco Masala 2019 Florida Gulf Coast University

¿Poder Del Discurso O Discurso De Poder? La Representación De Los Migrantes Ecuatorianos En La Utopía De Madrid, Francesco Masala

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

After enduring a decade of economic, climatic, and political problems, between 1999 and 2006, more than 900,000 Ecuadorians left their country (INEC 2007). This process marked the beginning of a major migratory movement which has caused Spain to become a premier destination. The response to such migration has been disparate, yet both Ecuadorian and Spanish artists (as well as the Spanish press) have shown the different perspectives related to a discriminatory ideology. This article focuses on the representation of Ecuadorians in Spain in the 21st century. Despite the large production of novels related to this topic, the one that ...

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

En este estudio se explora el mantenimiento del gallego en las comunidades que emigraron a Latinoamérica en los siglos XIX y XX. Primero se contrastan las motivaciones de la comunidad gallega durante los periodos de emigración con el uso activo del gallego en varios centros culturales en las Américas. A continuación se analizan varios textos de la prensa gallega en La Habana y en Buenos Aires, y se comparan con revistas publicadas en los últimos años por centros gallegos en Buenos Aires y en México, DF. De este primer estudio exploratorio se propone que un factor que contribuyó al mantenimiento ...

The Mother Narrative Transformed: Criminalizing The Immigrant Mother In Jordi Sierra I Fabra’S “Barrios Altos”, Diana Aramburu 2019 University of California, Davis

The Mother Narrative Transformed: Criminalizing The Immigrant Mother In Jordi Sierra I Fabra’S “Barrios Altos”, Diana Aramburu

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

With the ongoing financial crisis and the influx of refugees and other migrant communities in Spain, the "immigrant problem," combined with a narrative that reflects upon the economic crisis, has become a focal point for numerous genres, including that of crime fiction. While the immigrant narrative has been mostly presented from the vantage point of the autochthonous community, recent contributions to migrant literature in Spain have refocalized this perspective, and privilege the immigrant’s plight to evoke the reader’s empathy. This article examines how Jordi Sierra i Fabra’s 2013 “Barrios altos” (“A High-End Neighborhood,” 2011) problematizes the representation ...


Undocumented Crime In Juan Mayorga’S Animales Nocturnos, Jeffrey K. Coleman 2019 Marquette University

Undocumented Crime In Juan Mayorga’S Animales Nocturnos, Jeffrey K. Coleman

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The link between criminality and immigration is often personified in the undocumented immigrant. As nations have constricted the flow of immigrants, laws have inscribed a criminal culpability attached to the lack of documentation. The lack of papers becomes such a part of their persona that in Spanish the colloquial term for an undocumented immigrant is a sin papeles ‘illegal immigrant.’ Juan Mayorga’s chilling 2003 play Animales nocturnos (Nocturnal) explores the lengths to which laws can be used to criminalize and psychologically abuse undocumented immigrants. This paper will explore how immigration law manifests itself in the play and how said ...

Sueños De Tánger: Extraterritorial Basque Crime Fiction On Immigration To Spain, Shanna Lino

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

As the world increasingly turns its attention to the European refugee crisis and to the 1.8 million who have arrived on that continent since 2014 as a consequence of being forced to flee their native countries’ war-torn cities and villages, questions continue to arise regarding the ethical and political responsibilities of Western nations to facilitate this exodus and to provide refugee and immigration services en route and at destination. Spain remains the intended port of arrival for thousands of Malians, Mauritanians, Moroccans, and Western Saharans who sometimes manage to escape war and extreme poverty only to find themselves stalled ...


When The Bubble Bursts: A Spatial Interrogation Of Spanish Crisis In José Ángel Mañas’ Sospecha, Nick Phillips 2019 Grinnell College

When The Bubble Bursts: A Spatial Interrogation Of Spanish Crisis In José Ángel Mañas’ Sospecha, Nick Phillips

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

José Ángel Mañas’s detective novel Sospecha investigates the consequences of the 2008 economic crisis by focusing on the unsustainable development of the Madrid urban area. I argue that the novel’s depiction of the Spanish capital serves as a case study for coming to terms with the identity and effects of crisis. By employing elements of the police procedural, Sospecha creates multiple trajectories through these suburban communities, allowing the novel to trace the impacts of a globalized economic model that presents these spaces as products of consumption. In turn, it is the spatial production of the city’s urban ...
