Seeing (As) The Eroticized And Exoticized Other In Spanish Im/Migration Cinema: A Critical Look At The (De)Criminalization Of Migrants And Impunity Of Hegemonic Perpetrators, Maureen Tobin Stanley 2019 University of Minnesota Duluth

Seeing (As) The Eroticized And Exoticized Other In Spanish Im/Migration Cinema: A Critical Look At The (De)Criminalization Of Migrants And Impunity Of Hegemonic Perpetrators, Maureen Tobin Stanley

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article examines cinematic perspective in six Spanish im/migration films to show that by resituating the identification from an alignment with that of a hegemonic character (who accepts the systematic bias that confers impunity to perpetrators) to identification with a criminalized migrant subject, these films 1) denounce systemic intersectionality that confers impunity to perpetrators and criminalizes the racialized and/or feminized other and 2) aim at fostering empathy in the hegemonically identified viewer. Parameters for the selection of the six films are: immigration to Spain, African (whether geographic or ethnic) origins, eroticization of the migrant, objectification/(ab)use/commodification ...


Immigrants And National Anxieties In 21st-Century Spanish Film, Julia C. Barnes 2019 Berry College

Immigrants And National Anxieties In 21st-Century Spanish Film, Julia C. Barnes

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article analyzes the ways that gender and race inform the portrayals of native-born Spaniards and immigrants in Flores de otro mundo (Flowers from Another World) (1999), Un novio para Yasmina 'A Fiancé for Yasmina' (2008), Retorno a Hansala (Return to Hansala) (2008), Biutiful (2010) and 15 años + 1 día (Fifteen Years and One Day) (2013). These films position the white Spanish man at the center of their stories, even when they are not the sole protagonists. Immigrant men of color, in contrast, are most frequently portrayed as parasitical, delinquent, and criminal. White Spanish women are portrayed negatively as well ...

Special Focus Introduction. Set Up And Shut Out: Immigration And Criminality In Contemporary Spanish Fiction, Diana Aramburu, Jeffrey K. Coleman

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The beginning of the twenty-first century has seen mass immigration from the Global South to the Global North. Unfortunately, the geopolitical and racial dynamics of this migration flow often lead to a purported nexus between immigration and criminality. In immigrant-receiving nations, this is especially the case, where sometimes the government, the media, and even the population support a xenophobic perspective based on the interconnection between immigration and criminality. Spain serves as an interesting case study for understanding how cultural productions reflect and/or critique that tendency because between 2000 and 2010 it had the world's second largest net immigration ...

Cost-Benefit Analysis Of Studying Spanish And Construction In Tandem, Daniel Joseph Eide 2019 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Cost-Benefit Analysis Of Studying Spanish And Construction In Tandem, Daniel Joseph Eide

Construction Management

Does Spanish bilingualism have measurable fiscal value in the U.S. construction industry? Studying and becoming proficient in Spanish is feasible, affordable, and can be accomplished at Cal Poly in conjunction with a Construction Management major. In a dynamic industry that values versatile employees, where communication is key to success, the capability of speaking Spanish is a substantial value-add in the workforce. Using qualitative and quantitative data analysis, it is concluded that individuals who possess English and Spanish-speaking abilities in the U.S. construction industry can expect a 3 percent wage premium when compared to English-only speakers. This study weighs ...


Yucatán's Pirate Novels And The Discursive Mayan Rebel In The Nineteenth-Century Criollo Imaginary, Sarah West 2019 Northeastern Illinois University

Yucatán's Pirate Novels And The Discursive Mayan Rebel In The Nineteenth-Century Criollo Imaginary, Sarah West

Sarah West

During Yucatán’s Caste War, described in the nineteenth century as the Mayan
rebel uprising against criollo (European-identified) hegemony, more than half
the Yucatán Peninsula’s population either perished or fled, fearing for their lives.
As one of the most violent indigenous uprisings in the Americas, it was also one
of the longest: the Caste Wars tormented the Mexican Southeast for over 50 years.
While historical scholarship has examined the Caste War at length, the study of
the peninsula’s literary production has yet to be considered for the contribution it
makes to fully understanding the sociohistorical context of the ...

Lo Fantástico Y La Historia: La Polémica Entre La Sombra Del Caudillo Y Tirano Banderas, Juan Velasco

Juan Velasco

Sobre Ia base del debate que asento Martin Luis Guzman a raiz del articulo "Tirano Banderas", publicado en "La Opinion" de Los Angeles el 17 de marzo de 1927, se dejan planteadas una serie de preguntas que cuestionan el uso del discurso fantastico en Ia representacion de Ia historia Iatinoamericana. La polemica sobre Ia ideologia de Ia forma tiene un especial relieve en tanto que viene a sumarse a Ia de Ia siempre compleja relacion cultural entre Europa y America. En este trabajo me propongo explorar cuales son los criterios determinantes de esta problematica geograficoideologica y sus consecuencias esteticas.


Automitografías: The Border Paradigm And Chicana/O Autobiography, Juan Velasco 2019 Santa Clara University

Automitografías: The Border Paradigm And Chicana/O Autobiography, Juan Velasco

Juan Velasco

For Chicana/o cultural critics, the border paradigm has defined the boundaries of writing and experience in contemporary Chicana/o autobiography, and has constituted a valuable contribution to American Studies. In fact, the unique voices coming from Chicana/o autobiography are expressed through a network of cultural codes involving liminality and hybridity, the rewriting of borders, and the challenging of boundaries created by mainstream cultures and official truth. Based on this deep relationship of border paradigm, Chicana/o experience, and the writing and representation of that experience, in this article I will discuss the possibility of building an organic and ...

Revitalización Económica: The Change of Chilean Economic Principles in the 1970s

Socio-economic policy reforms of the 1970s had a profound impact on Chilean society. These reforms were highly controversial and sharply debated both nationally and internationally. My project investigates the impact of foreign interventions on Chile’s economy and society. These interventions resulted in a rise in economic activity and, at the same time, produced substantial social unrest. Despite social instability and human rights violations, these economic interventions forged the framework for a stable economic future. At the center of these economic reforms stood the 'Chicago Boys' and their program ...

Hay 23 idiomas indígenas hablados en Guatemala hoy. Los idiomas son parte de la identidad de los grupos indígenas, pero de todas estas lenguas indígenas, hay 13 que son vulnerables a la extinción, siete que están definitivamente en peligro de extinción, una que está gravemente en peligro y dos que están en peligro crítico. Mi investigación es sobre qué esfuerzos se están haciendo para promover y enseñar los idiomas.

El propósito de mi estudio es investigar la política lingüística en Guatemala con respecto a las lenguas indígenas. Investigo la historia de los pueblos indígenas y cómo sus culturas y ...

Spanish Education In Montana, Bret Charlton

Importance of Spanish Education in Montana

Currently, in the United States, Spanish speaking English language learners are the largest growing population. This includes large numbers of families and individuals from El Salvador, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Mexico, most of whom reside in Texas, California, Arizona, Florida, and New Jersey. So why is Spanish education important in Montana? Most students taking Spanish classes in high school will take the recommended two years and never look back. With this in mind, it is the responsibility of the teacher to help form well-rounded, respectful individuals with the time they have.

Part Of Her: An Exploration Of The Bodily Boundaries Between Parent And Child And The Limits Of Personhood In Lina Meruane’S Sangre En El Ojo, Sawnie Smith 2019 University of Oxford

Part Of Her: An Exploration Of The Bodily Boundaries Between Parent And Child And The Limits Of Personhood In Lina Meruane’S Sangre En El Ojo, Sawnie Smith

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Lina Meruane (1970-) is a contemporary Chilean author whose novels began to captivate at the turn of the twenty-first century. Her works are replete with unsettling meditations on the fragility of human flesh. And the promise of illness—its infectious potential—clings to the air in her literary worlds, such as those found in Fruta podrida (2007) and Sangre en el ojo (2012). This latter novel in particular serves as a vivid example of Meruane’s talent for writing sickly atmospheres. It is a novel saturated with bodily imagery, such as disembodied eyes, parasitic embraces, and grim sexual foreplay. All ...
