Afecto Impropio Y Estética Huacha: Relatos Íntimos De Alejandra Costamagna, Nona Fernández, Andrea Jeftanovic, Andrea Maturana Y Lina Meruane, Nan Zheng

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This work examines selective novels and short stories about Chile during and after Augusto Pinochet’s the military regime, written by five contemporary female writers that share generational traits: Alejandra Costamagna, Nona Fernández, Andrea Jeftanovic, Andrea Maturana and Lina Meruane. Their intimate stories on family relations that the common society brands as non-ideal and deviant, epitomize the aesthetics defined as symbolically huacho. This is a term that originally refers to the mestizo orphans or illegitimate children born during the European conquest and colonization, but appropriated by the author of this work to address the prevailing discontent and malaise that contradict ...

Developing And Validating A Methodology For Crowdsourcing L2 Speech Ratings In Amazon Mechanical Turk, Charles Nagle 2019 Iowa State University

Developing And Validating A Methodology For Crowdsourcing L2 Speech Ratings In Amazon Mechanical Turk, Charles Nagle

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Researchers have increasingly turned to Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) to crowdsource speech data, predominantly in English. Although AMT and similar platforms are well positioned to enhance the state of the art in L2 research, it is unclear if crowdsourced L2 speech ratings are reliable, particularly in languages other than English. The present study describes the development and deployment of an AMT task to crowdsource comprehensibility, fluency, and accentedness ratings for L2 Spanish speech samples. Fifty-four AMT workers who were native Spanish speakers from 11 countries participated in the ratings. Intraclass correlation coefficients were used to estimate group-level interrater reliability, and ...

The Spanish Civil War Memory Project: Constructing And Enhancing A Digital Archive, Luis Martin Cabrera, Andrea R. Davis

Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

The Spanish Civil War Memory Project consists of over one hundred audiovisual testimonies of victims, militants, survivors, and witnesses of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and Francoist repression (1939-1975). The testimonies were recorded by researchers between 2006 and 2010 as part of an initiative of UC San Diego in collaboration with several human rights associations in Spain, including: the Asociación para la Recuperación de la Memoria Histórica (ARMH), the Asociación de Ex-presos y Represaliados Políticos, and the Federación Estatal de Foros por la Memoria, among others. This article discusses the origins and development of the project, as well as current ...

El Cambio De Código Dentro De Una Compañía Bilingüe, Montserrat Ricossa 2019 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

El Cambio De Código Dentro De Una Compañía Bilingüe, Montserrat Ricossa

Spanish: Student Scholarship & Creative Works

Las personas bilingües frecuentemente se pueden encontrar en una situación en que cambian de un idioma a otro. Con la población de hispanohablantes aumentando rápidamente en los Estados Unidos, se nota el “cambio de código” entre inglés y español en contextos laborales. ¿Cómo y cuando ocurren cambios de código? ¿Porque ocurren? ¿Qué significa para el ambiente laboral? Este ensayo argumentará que el cambio de código se puede usar dentro de un ambiente formal por varias razones, sin que sea por falta de conocimiento lingüístico. Primero se analizará la historia de cambio de código y cómo difiere del espanglish. Se explicará ...


The Man Who Had It All But Her: The Construction And Destruction Of The Macho Image In Four Mexican Novels, Adriana Marmolejo 2019 University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Man Who Had It All But Her: The Construction And Destruction Of The Macho Image In Four Mexican Novels, Adriana Marmolejo

Masters Theses

The ideas of Mexican Machismo have been crystallized in the image of the Macho, a virile man who represents the ideals of masculinity in a determined time and space. This work aims to examine how four Mexican Novels (Juan Rulfo’s Pedro Páramo, Elena Garro’s Los Recuerdos del Porvenir, Yuri Herrera’s Trabajos del Reino, and Fernanda Melchor’s Temporada de huracanes) present their unique macho ideals, and how the male characters fail to fulfill them. Through a textual examination of the four novels, this work asks: how is a macho image formed in each pair of novels? And ...
