De-Coding Intertextuality In Classic And Postmodern Russian Narratives, Natalia Olshanskaya Jun 2015

De-Coding Intertextuality In Classic And Postmodern Russian Narratives, Natalia Olshanskaya

Natalia Olshanskaya

Based on the comparison of intertextual references in several English translations of Fedor Dostoevskii’s Notes From the Underground and Victor Pelevin’s “The Ninth Dream of Vera Pavlovna,” the article addresses general issues of translating intertextual references in narratives. Special attention is devoted to the problems of reception of postmodern texts and the question of the translator’s ‘invisibility.’

Speed And Resolution In The Age Of Technological Reproducibility, Shawn Taylor Jan 2015

Speed And Resolution In The Age Of Technological Reproducibility, Shawn Taylor

Theses and Dissertations

The rate of acceleration of the biologic and synthetic world has for a while now, been in the process of exponentially speeding up, maxing out servers and landfills, merging with each other, destroying each other. The last prehistoric relics on Earth are absorbing the same oxygen, carbon dioxide and electronic waves in our biosphere as us.

Prince Myshkin As A Tragic Interpretation Of Don Quixote, Slav N. Gratchev Phd Jan 2015

Prince Myshkin As A Tragic Interpretation Of Don Quixote, Slav N. Gratchev Phd

Modern Languages Faculty Research

Surprisingly, although virtually no one doubts Dostoevsky’s profound and direct indebtedness to Cervantes, and the Quixote–Myshkin identity is obvious, no one has ever mentioned or analyzed how Myshkin, the character more dialogically elaborate and versatile, turned out to be more limited in literary expressivity than his more “monological” counterpart. The focus on this essay is the question of what weakened the realness of Dostoevsky’s favorite hero, and what negatively affected his literary answerability.

Los Límites De La Herencia: Inmigración Y Postnacionalidad En La Literatura Española Contemporánea, Alicia Maria Barron Lopez Jan 2015

Los Límites De La Herencia: Inmigración Y Postnacionalidad En La Literatura Española Contemporánea, Alicia Maria Barron Lopez

Spanish and Portuguese Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Globalization and the phenomenon of widespread immigration have changed the ways communities and feelings of belonging are conceived. This dissertation analyzes Spanish literature's portrayal of how immigration has affected Spanish society as it becomes the subject of a process of transnationalization in the European framework and as recipient of a large number of immigrants during the decade of 1990s.

Based on the critical theory on globalization and migration delivered by Néstor García Canclini and Iain Chambers, this research focuses on the study of the ways immigration is perceived by several Spanish mediating literary characters and how they describe their ...


Siting The Periphery: Representations Of Space In The Contemporary French Basque Novel, Caroline Whiteman Jan 2015

Siting The Periphery: Representations Of Space In The Contemporary French Basque Novel, Caroline Whiteman

French & Italian Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation explores the dynamic but often overlooked peripheral literature of the French Basque Country, examining the different ways in which space is represented in the contemporary novels of that region. In four chapters focusing on physical, literary, linguistic and narratological spaces, my analysis examines on the work of four authors from Bayonne: Itxaro Borda, Marie Darrieussecq, Marie Cosnay, and Xabi Molia. Using a variety of novels by these four authors, I examine some of the diverse approaches they have taken to those spaces in their work.

At the same time, however, their work also exhibits certain shared characteristics, such ...

Children And Young People's Emotional Literacy In A Networked World, Donell Holloway Jan 2015

Children And Young People's Emotional Literacy In A Networked World, Donell Holloway

ECU Publications Post 2013

After nearly 15 years of research into the risk and harm of the internet for children and young people, research attention is beginning to turn towards investigating the social and emotional skills children and young people need to successfully engage in the digital world. This turn, from a protectionist-only approach to a more nuanced research agenda, examines the positive and negative implications of minors’ internet use, including all the protective factors children need to engage effectively and safely online. This change in research agenda will go some way towards helping children develop the skills they need to participate and navigate ...


La Manzana Mordida: Sexo Y Religión En El Cine De Luis Buñuel, Micaela Downey Jan 2015

La Manzana Mordida: Sexo Y Religión En El Cine De Luis Buñuel, Micaela Downey

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

La extensa y variada obra fílmica de Luis Buñuel permite observar la repetición obsesiva de motivos, imágenes y objetos que constituyen lo que podría denominarse el universo personal de Buñuel. La proliferación de zapatos, pies, cajas misteriosas y armas de fuego (sin olvidar los tambores de Calanda, los insectos y las gallinas) ha atraído la atención de la crítica convirtiéndolos en objetos detallados de análisis. Este ensayo no intenta proponer una “obsesión” más, sino reparar en un motivo que, a pesar de su recurrencia (y, por lo tanto, de su importancia) ha pasado inadvertido: la reescritura de la historia bíblica ...


Perspectivas Dialógicas En Colección Privada De Ramón Cote, Diego Fernando Burgos-Gomez Jan 2015

Perspectivas Dialógicas En Colección Privada De Ramón Cote, Diego Fernando Burgos-Gomez

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

Este trabajo ofrece un acercamiento crítico al libro Colección privada (2003) del poeta colombiano Ramón Cote Baraibar. Partiendo de la propuesta del propio Cote, quien pide en la “Entrada” de su libro que se lo acepte como una sala de exhibición donde los poemas son equivalentes a las obras de arte, propongo una aproximación desde dos perspectivas dialógicas: una interna y otra externa. Estas perspectivas dependen básicamente de la distancia que existe entre el hablante con su objeto y con su interlocutor. Para este acercamiento he elegido un corpus de cuatro poemas que representan diferentes modalidades de estas dos perspectivas ...
