Gaspar Octavio Hernández, Un Poeta Modernista, Karina Ayodele Clarke Murrain Nov 2018

Gaspar Octavio Hernández, Un Poeta Modernista, Karina Ayodele Clarke Murrain

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Panama is known empirically for its geography, climate and natural environment, so it is not surprising that the Afro-Panamanian writer and journalist, Gaspar Octavio Hernández (1893-1918) uses climate and natural conditions as inspirations for his writing. As a modernista, it is entirely plausible that Hernández was attracted to and compelled by both the process and the production of writing poetry. As we approach his work critically, it is evident that Hernández explores nature in his work and his acknowledgment thereof is the principal motivation of his poetry. From this point, Hernández establishes not only a framework for exploring themes identity ...

El Rock En Nicaragua: Un Discurso De Resistencia Contra La Neoliberalización O Una Re-Definición De La Tradición., Martina Barinova

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Abstract in English

This work, which parts from the premise that music is a medium of communication with the potential to transform and create identities, explores rock music in Nicaragua since its beginning until the present. Nicaraguan rock music is born in a sociopolitical context of extreme economic instability and during a crisis of values in the last decade of the 20th century, with the end of the Sandinista Revolution and the establishment of neoliberal government. The young cultural movement, and rock in particular, constructs a discourse dissident from the patriarchal and capitalist hegemony and interrogates the social reality ...

Mass Culture As Domination Or Resistance In Latin American Narratives, Tim Robbins Nov 2011

Mass Culture As Domination Or Resistance In Latin American Narratives, Tim Robbins

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Since the introduction of radio to Latin America in the 1930’s and later television in the 1950’s, mass culture has become an important and even contentious part of Latin American identity, and as such has also become an important part of Latin American narratives. In looking at the issue of mass culture, two basic approaches emerge: one can see mass culture as a force of domination or one can see it as a force of resistance. It is possible to trace these approaches through different time periods and geopolitical situations. The Mexican Onda writers, for instance, utilize the ...

Para llevar a cabo este análisis se aborda primeramente lo polisémico que significa ser hombre en varios contextos socio-culturales, la hipermasculinidad, y también los términos que se conocen popularmente como ...
