Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis Jan 2005

Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis

English Publications

English has spread far beyond the boundaries of the traditional L1 varieties (eg British, American, Australian English). Not only is English a leading foreign language throughout the world, it is also a central language for many multilingual communities throughout the world. The speakers of these new Englishes are not yet fully seen as ‘native speakers’ by many speakers from the traditional L1 varieties but cannot be called ‘non‐native speakers’ in any meaningful sense of the word. Kachru (1990) calls these new varieties ‘outer circle’ Englishes, a contrast to the ‘inner circle’ native speaker varieties and the ‘expanding circle’ foreign ...

El Hombre Artificial De Horacio Quiroga Y Los Comienzos De La Ciencia Ficción Hispanoamericana, Luis Cano Dec 2004

El Hombre Artificial De Horacio Quiroga Y Los Comienzos De La Ciencia Ficción Hispanoamericana, Luis Cano

Luis C. Cano

Contrary to popular belief, science fiction has had a long tradition in Spanish American letters. Although preceded by the novels Viaje maravilloso del señor Nic-Nac by the Argentine writer Eduardo Holmberg and Desde Júpiter by the Chilean Francisco Miralles, Horacio Quiroga’s El hombre artificial (1910) has a special significance for the genre: it is certainly the first novel to illustrate the tensions among fantasy, esoteric tradition, and SF in Spanish American narrative, while at the same time establishing an explicit dialogue with the British tradition of the genre, especially with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Rewriting, Rereading Récidive, Brian G. Kennelly Jul 2004

Rewriting, Rereading Récidive, Brian G. Kennelly

World Languages and Cultures

Author of some dozen works of homoerotic fiction, two polemical essays, and recipient of the 1973 Prix Médicis1, Tony Duvert published his first novel Récidive in 1967. Seven years later he rewrote it, ultimately publishing a much shorter version in 1976 - which for reviewer A. Thiher resembles what the prose of Jean Genet might have become were it to have been rewritten by Alain Robbe-Grillet. This disturbing work by one of France's most aggressively homosexual writers, a self-proclaimed "pédhomophile" (L'Enfant 21), has largely escaped critical attention. In the only study to focus on Récidive to date, John ...

The Teenage Dissent Of Newman And Unamuno: Conscience As A Safeguard Against Coercive Manipulation, Kevin T. Fagan Jan 2004

The Teenage Dissent Of Newman And Unamuno: Conscience As A Safeguard Against Coercive Manipulation, Kevin T. Fagan

World Languages and Cultures

Teenagers seem easy targets for despotic groups, such as cults. Moral conscience, however, may be a dike against a sea of despotism. John Henry Newman and Miguel de Unamuno were giant defenders of conscience in their respective cultures. Their philosophies and phenomenologies of conscience depict conscience as supreme in the mind of the ordinary person, though subject to pressures, even death. This notion becomes alive in the deep religious crisis and conversion of their adolescence, marked by a sense of personal divine experience, confidence in final predestination or holy trust, and an ethical commitment. Both men, however, dissent from their ...

Freedom Of Conscience In John H. Newman And Miguel De Unamuno, Kevin T. Fagan Aug 2003

Freedom Of Conscience In John H. Newman And Miguel De Unamuno, Kevin T. Fagan

World Languages and Cultures

Deals with the issue of freedom of conscience in two of its principal advocates in the modem English and Spanish-speaking worlds, John Henry Newman and Miguel de Unamuno. Seemingly strange bedfellows, in their respective linguistic communities Newman is considered an intellectual defender of institutional Christianity, while Unamuno is oft characterized as its greatest heretic. This dissertation is a comparative study of both writers from a historical-critical perspective. Our aim is to suggest that the heroic defenses of conscience by both Newman and Unamuno towards the end of their lives are a logical corollary to a succession of actions and writings ...

Good Intentions Aren't Enough: Intellectuals And Violence In Luis Goytisolo's Mzungo, Terri Carney Jan 2003

Good Intentions Aren't Enough: Intellectuals And Violence In Luis Goytisolo's Mzungo, Terri Carney

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

In the 1990s Luis Goytisolo explores the possibilities of popular fiction, adapting various genres (travel, mystery, erotic, historical) to accomodate his long-term project of unpacking Western Values. Indeed, Goytisolo’s flirtation with the best-selling genre fiction constitutes a postmodern gesture of “complicitous critique.”For example, in Escalera hacia el cielo (1999) Goytisolo exploits the erotic genre to challenge the traditional paradigm of the dominant male gaze and the objectified female body and to offer instead expressions of mutuality. In Mzungo (1996), Goytisolo engages the travel novel to undermine the culturally dominant position of the white European male who “discovers” an ...

Truth And Consequences: Renaud Camus And The Personal, Brian G. Kennelly Apr 2002

Truth And Consequences: Renaud Camus And The Personal, Brian G. Kennelly

World Languages and Cultures

A year before his untimely death in 1980, in the days before the internet, before even the minitel bleu or rose, Roland Barthes compared the personals – at that time still print-based – of two popular French dailies. On the one hand, the advertisements in Le Nouvel Observateur belied artifice, he noted. The information their writers shared publicly with potential mates revealed a certain banal artificiality. Despite the obvious effort the creators of the ads had put into catching the eye of possible matches, in spite of the care with which they had weighed the words before ultimately selecting them and the ...
