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 ...


The Making And Breaking Of A Language: The French And Spanish Effect Upon The Catalan Regional Language, Margaret Emilyn Cychosz May 2012

The Making And Breaking Of A Language: The French And Spanish Effect Upon The Catalan Regional Language, Margaret Emilyn Cychosz

Undergraduate Honors Thesis Collection

Almost four hundred years ago, the French and Spanish governments divided the Catalan border regions located between their respective countries. The subsequent centuries have seen the expansion and development of the Catalan language in Spain and the demise of the Catalan language in France, where it has nearly deteriorated to disuse. Is this a reflection upon the French and Spanish culture or was it simply governmental policy? If so, what did the central governments of Madrid and Paris do in the centuries following the division that resulted in this contrasting development of Catalan? What effect did the usage of Catalan ...

Modern Languages and Literatures Student Publications

The magazine Por Granada publishes the students’ final project of the course Spain in Context taught by Prof. Lamas at Fordham in Granada. Rather than the academic research paper, the preferred format is the well-informed article of investigative journalism. Topics are chosen in consultation with Prof. Lamas and Begoña Calatrava, and must involve a demanding first-hand fieldwork in Granada. A number of interviews with locals are required to have the project approved. Students are requested to find their own sources and to create an adequate network of contacts to fully understand the chosen subject matter. All articles are the result ...

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 ...

Rhotic Metathesis In Algherese Catalan: A Harmonic Serialism Account, Francesc Torres-Tamarit, Clàudia Pons-Moll, Maria Cabrera-Callís Jan 2012

Rhotic Metathesis In Algherese Catalan: A Harmonic Serialism Account, Francesc Torres-Tamarit, Clàudia Pons-Moll, Maria Cabrera-Callís

Clàudia Pons-Moll

In the light of the diachronic process of rhotic metathesis that has applied in Algherese Catalan,1 in this paper we provide some empirical evidence for considering the left edge of the stem a prominent position, along the lines of Alber 2001. A Harmonic Serialism analysis of the data is presented, as well as a comparison with parallel OT. It is argued that the typological predictions that derive from Harmonic Serialism are more restrictive than those derived from parallel OT. Only resorting to Harmonic Serialism, indeed, long-distance metathesis can be discarded as a potential process of natural languages (Hume 2001 ...


When Diachrony Meets Synchrony. Phonological Change, Phonological Variation And Optimal Paradigms, Clàudia Pons-Moll Jan 2012

When Diachrony Meets Synchrony. Phonological Change, Phonological Variation And Optimal Paradigms, Clàudia Pons-Moll

Clàudia Pons-Moll

General goals. This paper has three goals. First, it aims to illustrate how the problems derived from access to intricate diachronic empirical data can sometimes be informed by a careful look at interdialectal microvariation, in that this linguistic microvariation can sometimes help to explain why a phonological process applies or has applied. Second, it intends to show how some of the machineries developed within Optimality Theory to account for synchronic surface resemblances between the members of an inflectional paradigm can be applied to account for phonological change. Third, it attempts to demonstrate how the analysis of phonological change and linguistic ...

Merengue, Lujuria Y Violencia: El Espectáculo De La Barbarie En El Imaginario De La Nación Dominicana, Medar Serrata Dec 2011

Merengue, Lujuria Y Violencia: El Espectáculo De La Barbarie En El Imaginario De La Nación Dominicana, Medar Serrata

Medar Serrata

This essay has two purposes. The first is to analyze the representation of popular music in the Dominican Republic since the mid-nineteenth century to the 1930s. The second is to explore the incorporation and subversion of the notion of merengue as a symbol of "barbarism" in the works of the Dominican writer Ramón Marrero Aristy.
