The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, JEANNE GILLESPIE 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, Jeanne Gillespie

JEANNE GILLESPIE

From the early fifteenth century to the end of the eighteenth century, the Spanish colonial process involved the settling of vast tracks of land. From their first colonial experiment in the Canary Islands in 1402, the Spanish administration learned that it was sometimes more effective to import assimilated settlers from already established colonial possessions than to attempt massive conversion and cultural assimilation. To shore up the vast spaces of the northern Gulf Coast, particularly "West Florida" and eastern Texas, the Spanish governors sent for colonists including groups of Canary Islanders who settled outposts along the Red River, as well as ...

Shakespeare & Service Learning, Tiara Thompson, Sandra Loera, Phil Bode

Service-Learning Program

Because Shakespeare holds such a prominent position in English-speaking world culture, it is important to open and expand access to understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of Shakespeare to a constituency as wide-ranging as possible.

“Pour Out The Pack Of Matter To Mine Ear” : Dramatization Of Language In Antony And Cleopatra, Chloe Jenkins-Sleczkowski 2010 Occidental College

“Pour Out The Pack Of Matter To Mine Ear” : Dramatization Of Language In Antony And Cleopatra, Chloe Jenkins-Sleczkowski

ECLS Student Scholarship

Shakespeare’s "Antony and Cleopatra" presents a beautiful narrative through its elaborate and eloquent passages. The masterful descriptions and dialogues make use of the ideals of Renaissance rhetorical practices with which Shakespeare was undoubtedly familiar. Emblematic of these linguistic devices are the messengers who transfer information amongst the characters. They hold the power of knowledge, but with the responsibility of moving the textual language faithfully; they thus become the functionaries of Renaissance rhetoric. Through a study of contemporary Renaissance rhetorical manuals, as well as an examination of criticism of Shakespeare and his play, this paper finds significance in the various ...


Don Juan In Pre-Brechtian Hell, Or Shaw The Unexpected Terrorist, Sarah Flocken 2010 Occidental College

Don Juan In Pre-Brechtian Hell, Or Shaw The Unexpected Terrorist, Sarah Flocken

ECLS Student Scholarship

According to nineteenth and twentieth-century playwright George Bernard Shaw, a theatergoer with an appetite for “true comedy” in the late Victorian era was hard-pressed to find any at all. Shaw defines true comedy as "the fine art of disillusionment"; one found, instead, in the late-Victorian comedy, a lot of "harmless laughter," or frothy escapism without a lot of deeper meaning(Meisel 122-123). Shaw's work, consisting of over sixty plays, is unusual because it attained much commercial success as it shattered Victorian theatrical tradition; a prime of this type of work is found in the "Don Juan in Hell" episode ...

University of Minnesota, Morris production of As You Like It by William Shakespeare and directed by Ray Schultz.

Synopsis: In one of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic pastoral comedies, we follow the young heroine Rosalind from the court of her vindictive uncle, Duke Frederick, into the Eden-like Forest of Arden, where her banished father is living in exile. In order to avoid running into trouble, Rosalind disguises herself as a young man, “Ganymede,” and, accompanied by her faithful cousin Celia and the court clown, Touchstone, makes her way into the woods. She soon encounters the young, handsome Orlando, who is ...


Committed Drama Within Postdramatic Theatre: A Study Of Contemporary German Language Plays, Paulo Ricardo Berton 2010 University of Colorado, Boulder

Committed Drama Within Postdramatic Theatre: A Study Of Contemporary German Language Plays, Paulo Ricardo Berton

Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation challenges the view that drama has been divested of its critical functions under the dominant cultural paradigm of postmodernism and its socio-political correlative, late capitalism. To be sure, contemporary cultural circumstances have pressured “committed drama,” that is, drama that invites audience members to reflect critically on the world they inhabit by raising social and political issues, and by challenging mainstream aesthetic norms. On the one hand, the mainstream theatre, while still making use of some dramatic structural features, dissociates drama from any subversive political purpose. On the other hand, the postdramatic theatre theorized by Hans-Thies Lehmann eliminates the ...

The island of Trinidad is home to one of the world’s largest annual performances of the Hindu epic drama known locally as Ramleela. Far away from their ancestral homeland, Indo-Trinidadians perform their own identities as a Caribbean people in a drama of exile that hauntingly replicates their diasporic experience.


The World In Chaos: A Paragon For Comedic Plays, Lisa Akintilo '11 2010 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

The World In Chaos: A Paragon For Comedic Plays, Lisa Akintilo '11

2010 Spring Semester

When Samuel Beckett wrote his tragicomedy Waiting for Godot in France, the French nation was in turmoil due to the destructiveness of World War II. One generation later, an American named Tom Stoppard also wrote a play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, during a time of crisis; the United States was in utter confusion because of the Vietnam War. Both of these plays, as a result of the tumultuous times in which they were created, demonstrated how confusion in one’s surroundings can cause a loss of certainty and identity.

Sobre Lo Visible Y Lo Invisible: Barcelona Y El Teatro, Sharon G. Feldman

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Durante el invierno del año 2000, el director catalán Lluís Pasqual llevó a la escena del Teatre Lliure, la casa histórica de una de las compañías de repertorio más estable, consolidada y distinguida de Barcelona, una versión catalana de El jardín de los cerezos de Antón Chekov. En la obra de Chekov, Madame Ranyévskaya, emblema de la elegancia marchita y de la ya desvanecida supremacía de la aristocracia rusa, se ve obligada, por su situación de desesperanza económica, a vender su finca y su jardín de cerezos al nuevo-rico Lopatkhin y, después, a volver a París, cuando Rusia se encuentra ...
