An Exploratory Study Of Acculturation Experiences Of Graduate Student Immigrants At The University Of San Francisco, Courtney Lamar Dec 2018

An Exploratory Study Of Acculturation Experiences Of Graduate Student Immigrants At The University Of San Francisco, Courtney Lamar

Master's Theses

This study explores the shared challenges during the acculturation process of graduate student immigrants pursuing higher education in the United States. 13 graduate student immigrants at the University of San Francisco discuss their experiences of cultural adjustment into U.S. culture. Through qualitative interviews and thematic analysis, this study seeks to understand the acculturation experiences of graduate student immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area of the United States. This analysis is based on the individual-level experience examining attitudes and acculturation strategies in the dominant society. Analysis, possibly policy implication for institutions of higher education, and possible directions for future ...


From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, Rita Ewing May 2018

From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, Rita Ewing

Master's Theses

In the field of migration studies, research on transnationalism has been well

established. Applying an intersectional framework of post-colonial narrative and

linguistic anthropology to transnational migration, this research allows us to better

understand how the transnational immigrant deploys language. Through a nostalgia

studies approach, this study is able to analyze how transnational immigrants place value

on their heritage and second languages, and reflexively deploy their language sets to

reflect their unique positionality. This paper is a case study examination of five adult

members of the 1.5-generation of Filipin(a/o) American immigrants, who immigrated to

the US before the ...


Undoing Ideologies In Diachronic Studies Of English : Towards More Realistic Pictures Of Language Changes From Late Oe To Me, Seiki Ayano May 1990

Undoing Ideologies In Diachronic Studies Of English : Towards More Realistic Pictures Of Language Changes From Late Oe To Me, Seiki Ayano

Master's Theses

For over a century, the development of English, especially its two waves of foreign influence during the period between late OE to ME, has been a controversial area. This paper attempts to examine the two instances of foreign influence exerted upon English using several important notions taken from pidgin-creole and bilingual theories to provide more realistic pictures of the two language contact situations. The paper does not provide a clear-cut conclusion, but rather it undoes age-old binary models, e.g., pro-Germanic vs. pro-Romance, introduces new insights, and raises questions regarding sociolinguistic aspects of language contact and the transformation of English ...

Job Opportunities In Virginia For Foreign Language Students, Patricia Lightfoot Brown May 1978

Job Opportunities In Virginia For Foreign Language Students, Patricia Lightfoot Brown

Master's Theses

A New York City taxi driver loses a fare because he does not know Spanish. A corporate president waits in silence while an interpreter closes a deal with important Japanese investors. A nurse in Maine cannot diagnose a complaint because the patient is French-Canadian. A government scientist learns about the latest breakthrough in solar energy a full year after it happened, because the news first came out in Russian. All of these people could do their work better if they knew a foreign language, yet none of their jobs would seem to require a language.

The connection between foreign languages ...


L'Imagination - Une Triade - Dans A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu, Lucie Mclawhorn May 1975

L'Imagination - Une Triade - Dans A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu, Lucie Mclawhorn

Master's Theses

Tant que vouse detournerez votre espirit de ses reves, il ne les connaitra pas; vous serez le jouet de mille apparences parce que vous en aurez pais compris la nature. Si un peu de reve est dangereux, ce qui en guerit ce n'est pas moins de reve, mais plus de reve, mais tout le reve.

Tel est l'admirable conseil donne par le peintre Elstir au jeune Marcel. C'est en le suivant et apres maints tatonnements que celui-ci decouvrira la veritable realite, la beaute et l'art. Si dans l'optique de Blanchot l'imaginaire est seulement le ...


Oreste Poursuivi Par Les Furies Dans L'Andromaque De Racine Et Les Mouches De Sartre, Ann Harrington Archer Apr 1974

Oreste Poursuivi Par Les Furies Dans L'Andromaque De Racine Et Les Mouches De Sartre, Ann Harrington Archer

Master's Theses

Le but de cet essai est de retrouver l'origine de ces deux différentes conceptions d'Oreste dans la littérature antique, puis de montrer comment chaque Oreste exprime les croyances et les idées de son propre créateur: Racine, chez qui la fatalité de la tragédie, le prédéterminisme du Jansénisme et peut-être le pessimisme naturel se mêlent pour accabler l'individu; Sartre , chez qui, Dieu étant mort, l'homme est "condamné a être libre" et pour qui la tragédie de 11 existence n'est que le point de départ pour l'individu forcé de créer sa propre destinée.


The Artistic Deformation Of Reality : An Ideological Portrait Of Tyranny In Tirano Banderas And El Señ̃Or Presidente, Roebrta Wynne Cohen Jul 1969

The Artistic Deformation Of Reality : An Ideological Portrait Of Tyranny In Tirano Banderas And El Señ̃Or Presidente, Roebrta Wynne Cohen

Master's Theses

Tyrants speak with many voices, bold many poses, and cast many shadows, but inevitably all wear the same face--the tragic face of tyranny itself. Many artists have painted the portrait; few have captured the essence of its tragedy. Valle Inclan and Asturias, each in his own way, depict the world of tyranny as grotesque and absurd in order to show the tragic condition of man. It is my intent to describe and analyze this grotesque world of tyranny, as portrayed in Tirana Banderas and Senor Preeidente; to compare the techniques used by each writer to create this world; to interpret ...
