Virginia Brindis De Salas: La Voz De Un 'Yo' Afro, María Cristina Burgueño

María Cristina Burgueño

Virginia Brindis de Salas, poeta afro-uruguaya nacida en 1916 y muerta . en 1958, fue la autora de dos libros de poemas: Preg6n de Marimorena {1946, reeditado en 1952) y Cien carceles de amor {1949). Su vida, de la que no se conocen muchos datos concretos, esta rodeada de controversias, especialmente en torno a la autorfa de su obra, que segU.n sugiere Alberto Britos Serrat en su Antologia de poetas negros uruguayos {1990), fue producto del plagio, posturaque rechaza Marvin Lewis. Algunos incidentes de su vida crean una atmosfera de dudas y misterio en torno a la escritora, . por ejemplo ...

Cómo Mejorar Las Clases De Idioma Para Los Estudiantes Introvertidos, Katie Burba Jun 2015

Cómo Mejorar Las Clases De Idioma Para Los Estudiantes Introvertidos, Katie Burba

World Languages and Cultures

The intent of this project is to research and observe how current language teaching techniques could be improved to better accommodate introverted students. One third of the population identifies as introverted, yet language classes are obviously designed for extroverted students. Introverted students have unique learning styles that are being overlooked, and this project aims to create options that would improve introvert’s language acquisition.

This project consists in three parts: first, an observation of identified introverts and extroverts in beginning and intermediate language classes at Cal Poly. I kept an informal journal on what is working and what isn’t ...


Order Of Acquisition: A Comparison Of L1 And L2 English And Spanish Morpheme Acquisition, Kyle A. Mcferren Apr 2015

Order Of Acquisition: A Comparison Of L1 And L2 English And Spanish Morpheme Acquisition, Kyle A. Mcferren

Senior Honors Theses

This paper examines the order of acquisition for grammatical morphemes in Spanish and English first and second language learners. Brown’s first morpheme order study, conducted in 1973, laid the foundation for what would become one of the most common types of study conducted within the field of second language acquisition. The four orders of acquisition relevant here are examined and compared in order to support the roles of salience, morphophonological regularity, complexity, input frequency, and native language transfer in first and/or second language acquisition. The conclusion is that these five determinants work interdependently in determining the difficulty of ...

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

Translation specialists Esther Allen, Mary Ann Caws, Peter Constantine, Edith Grossman, Nancy Kline, Burton Pike, Damion Searls, Karen Van Dyck and Alyson Waters respond to the TQC question:

“Lost in translation”; “Found in translation”: Are these just useless commonplaces or are they indicative of something relevant to your own practice?

Promoting Awareness Of Teen Pregnancy Through Multimedia Storytelling: The Case Of Elizabeth House In Ecuador, Mary Hall Apr 2015

Promoting Awareness Of Teen Pregnancy Through Multimedia Storytelling: The Case Of Elizabeth House In Ecuador, Mary Hall

Honors Program Projects

Advocacy journalism takes the basic principles of journalism — factual integrity, clear concise writing, storytelling, and educating the public — and uses them to tell the story of a particular cause or organization. Advocacy journalism moves one step past the traditional confines of journalism to reach an audience with a particular message. As Reader (2011) said, "Objectivity is about presenting what is, but advocacy is about changing what will be" (p. 2).

The goal of this project was to use advocacy journalism within a blog platform to raise awareness of the work for the not-for-profit organization, Casa Elizabeth, a home for pregnant ...


A Corpus For Investigating English-Language Learners' Dialog Behaviors, Nigel Ward, Paola Gallardo Apr 2015

A Corpus For Investigating English-Language Learners' Dialog Behaviors, Nigel Ward, Paola Gallardo

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

We are interested in developing methods for the semi-automatic discovery of prosodic patterns in dialog and how they differ between languages and among populations. We are starting by examining how the prosody of Spanish-native learners of English differs from that of native speakers. To support this work, we have collected a new corpus of conversations among college students. This includes dialogs between a nonnative speaker of English and a native, dialogs between native speakers of English, and Spanish conversations.


Antonio Vallejo Nágera And The Discourse Of Eugenics In Francoist Spain, Ethan F. Pearlstein Apr 2015

Antonio Vallejo Nágera And The Discourse Of Eugenics In Francoist Spain, Ethan F. Pearlstein

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis examines Francoist medicalization, or the characterization of the Spanish Civil War in medical terms, as suggested by Spanish psychiatrist Dr. Antonio Vallejo Nágera. This work looks to address the function that medicine served for the Franco regime, and to justify the introduction of a directorship in psychiatry in the Nationalist camp as early as August of 1936. Through close textual analysis of three key publications by Vallejo Nágera, El factor emoción en la España nueva (1938), Política racial del nuevo estado (1938) and “Psiquismo del fanatismo marxista. Investigaciones psicológicas en marxistas femeninos delincuentes” (1939), this thesis traces the ...


Epistemologías Culturales Del Caribe: Modelos Conceptuales Metafóricos En El Ensayo Caribeño Del Siglo Xx, Diana M. Grullón-García Mar 2015

Epistemologías Culturales Del Caribe: Modelos Conceptuales Metafóricos En El Ensayo Caribeño Del Siglo Xx, Diana M. Grullón-García

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

El Caribe ha sido reconocido por considerarse una pluralidad de espacios que simultáneamente son solo uno. Contrario al contexto de su fragmentada geografía, su segregada historia colonial y su diversidad racial y lingüística, los intelectuales caribeños han establecido puentes de unidad cultural con la intención de configurar una identidad pan-caribeña. Por consiguiente, los ensayistas del siglo XX se enfrentan a la necesidad de examinar críticamente los factores que formulan sus respectivas identidades, en contraste con aquellas tradicionalmente impuestas bajo el discurso colonial y metropolitano. Desde el tercer cuarto del siglo, pensadores como Aimé Césaire (1913-2008), Fernando Ortiz (1881-1969), Fidel Castro ...


Estrategias Desestabilizadoras En La Narrativa De Silvina Ocampo, Lorena Loguzzo Mar 2015

Estrategias Desestabilizadoras En La Narrativa De Silvina Ocampo, Lorena Loguzzo

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

La narrativa de Silvina Ocampo (1903-1993) no goza del lugar que merece en la ficción argentina y latinoamericana como obra de la principal cuentista del siglo XX. Hace relativamente poco que su obra comenzó a despertar el interés de la crítica, atención que se evidencia en la cantidad de artículos y disertaciones recientes.

Mediante una disección de la narrativa ocampeana a partir de las grandes coordenadas que la intersectan se pueden caracterizar los aspectos peculiares y distintivos de su estilo. Desarrollada tras la consolidación del psicoanálisis y su influencia en la estética surrealista, la narrativa de Ocampo incorpora algunos de ...


A Cross-Generational Analysis Of Spanish-To-English Lexico-Semantic Phenomena In Emerging Miami English, Kristen Mullen Mar 2015

A Cross-Generational Analysis Of Spanish-To-English Lexico-Semantic Phenomena In Emerging Miami English, Kristen Mullen

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Sociolinguists have documented the substrate influence of various languages on the formation of dialects in numerous ethnic-regional setting throughout the United States. This literature shows that while phonological and grammatical influences from other languages may be instantiated as durable dialect features, lexical phenomena often fade over time as ethnolinguistic communities assimilate with contiguous dialect groups. In preliminary investigations of emerging Miami Latino English, we have observed that lexical forms based on Spanish lexical forms are not only ubiquitous among the speech of the first generation Cuban Americans but also of the second. Examples, observed in field work, casual observation, and ...

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 ...

De Niño Del Exilio A Hombre De La “Nueva España”: Masculinidad Y Nacionalismo Español En El Otro Árbol De Guernica, De Luis De Castresana, Iker González-Allende Jan 2015

De Niño Del Exilio A Hombre De La “Nueva España”: Masculinidad Y Nacionalismo Español En El Otro Árbol De Guernica, De Luis De Castresana, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Este artigo analisa a representação da masculinidade e identidade nacional espanhola na obra El otro árbol de Guernica (1967), de Luis de Castresana. Nessa narrativa, o exílio implica um momento de rito de passagem, por meio do qual o protagonista acentua sua identidade como homem e como espanhol. Santi deixa de ser um menino para transformar-se num modelo de homem da “nova Espanha” franquista, ao possuir valores como o patriotismo, a capacidade de liderança, a independência e a religiosidade. O surgimento do amor é um sinal de entrada do protagonista no mundo dos homens, o que se fortalecerá com seu ...

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 ...


Ways Of Seeing Language In Nineteenth-Century Galicia, Spain, José Del Valle Jan 2015

Ways Of Seeing Language In Nineteenth-Century Galicia, Spain, José Del Valle

Publications and Research

This article discusses a language-ideological debate surrounding Galician between two Spanish intellectuals – one Andalusian, Juan Valera, and one Galician, Manuel Murguía – who clashed on the desirability of the literary cultivation of the language. This encounter is framed as a language ideological debate and interpreted in the context of Spain’s late nineteenth-century politics of regional and national identity.

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 ...
