Review Of Building Nineteenth-Century Latin America: Re-Rooted Cultures, Identities, And Nations, Lee Joan Skinner Jun 2012

Review Of Building Nineteenth-Century Latin America: Re-Rooted Cultures, Identities, And Nations, Lee Joan Skinner

CMC Faculty Publications and Research

Recent years have seen the publication of several excellent collections of essays devoted to nineteenth-century Latin American cultural studies. Works such as Beyond Imagined Communities: Reading and Writing the Nation in Nineteenth-Century Latin America, edited by Sara Castro-Klarén and John Charles Chasteen, and special numbers of journals such as Revista Iberoamericana’s issue on cultural change and periodical reading in nineteenth-century Latin America (January–March 2006), to adduce but two examples, have amplified our understanding of the complex ways in which hegemonic and nonhegemonic discourses functioned in the nineteenth century and how the divisions between elite and popular cultures were ...


Review Of: Women In The Prose Of María De Zayas, Joan M. Hoffman Jun 2012

Review Of: Women In The Prose Of María De Zayas, Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

With Women in the Prose of Maria de Zayas, Eavan O'Brien presents a remarkable, exception ally well-researched addition to the ever-increasing Maria de Zayas library, albeit with what is, in my estimation, an unfortunate and inexpressive title. O'Brien wholly succeeds in her stated intention to study "the complex ramifications of women's interaction in [Zayas's] prose" (5). Without a doubt, this study does represent "a new contribution to the study of Zayas's prose, unearthing a neglected and innovative aspect, its gynocentrism" (6). Using a very close reading of all twenty tales in Novelas amorosas y ejemplares ...

Reseña De La Película Smoking Room (2002), Ana M. López-Aguilera Mar 2012

Reseña De La Película Smoking Room (2002), Ana M. López-Aguilera

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Una empresa española es comprada por otra estadounidense. Una de las consecuencias derivadas de esta compra es una nueva política con respecto a fumar en el lugar de trabajo. Nuevas directivas prohiben hacerlo en el área de trabajo. Si los empleados quieren fumar durante su jornada tienen que salir a la calle. Uno de ellos inicia una recogida de firmas entre los trabajadores para pedir que una habitación desocupada en el edificio de oficinas se destine a sala de fumadores o, como la definen sus desconocidos superiores estadounidenses, smoking room. A partir de esta anécdota en apariencia irrelevante y sin ...


Review Of: From The Outside Looking In: Narrative Frames And Narrative Spaces In The Short Stories Of Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman Mar 2012

Review Of: From The Outside Looking In: Narrative Frames And Narrative Spaces In The Short Stories Of Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

In a nicely bound volume of the sort for which Juan de la Cuesta is well-known, Susan Walter undertakes the study of thirteen of Emilia Pardo Bazan's short stories published between 1892 and 1909. All of these tales have in common two narrative levels - an introduction presented by one framing narrator and a central narration as told by a second, internal, narrator - thus allowing Walter to "untangle the distinct voices of narrative authority in the texts in order to uncover the ideological positioning of the tale" (22). Also, the author views such stories as "an ideal place to look ...
