Aquí Se Vende Todo: La Ciudad Y La Desmemoria En La Capital Del Olvido De Horacio Vázquez-Ria, Amalia Ran Dec 2010

Aquí Se Vende Todo: La Ciudad Y La Desmemoria En La Capital Del Olvido De Horacio Vázquez-Ria, Amalia Ran

Spanish Language and Literature

Aunque « memoria » sea la palabra más usada en el contexto histórico reciente de Argentina, es el olvido aquello de lo que más se habla, y lo que domina al final el discurso público de las últimas décadas. ¿ Cuáles son las distintas formas de « recordar » el pasado doloroso en un entorno que intenta silenciarlo al transformar la memoria en un objeto-fetiche ? ¿ De qué modo conserva el espacio urbano —la ciudad y sus múltiples lugares abiertos y cerrados— una memoria de la desgracia y del horror ?, y ¿ cómo se refleja ese espacio urbano dentro del texto narrativo ? El presente trabajo estudia la ...

Blogs & Glogs: Revitalizing Class Projects, Krista Bittenbender Royal

INTO Faculty and Staff Publications

This workshop looks at two technologies that can be used to energize traditional poster and writing assignments to bring them beyond text: Glogster and Blogger. Both are free, easy to use websites with which students can create web pages with images, text, and audio to share with their classmates and the world. In the workshop, intended for instructors and curriculum coordinators, we will look at each of these platforms, discuss examples of project assignment guides using each of the sites, and talk about other ways they could be integrated into courses. I will also share some student feedback and some ...

Cine E Inmigración: Espacios De Inclusión Y Exclusión, Ana M. López-Aguilera Aug 2010

Cine E Inmigración: Espacios De Inclusión Y Exclusión, Ana M. López-Aguilera

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

El tema de la inmigración representa una novedad para la sociedad española. Aunque habituada a las visitas de turistas extranjeros, la llegada de personas cuya estancia responde a motivos económicos y laborales (no ociosos) y que se prevé más prolongada, ha creado una nueva situación social. El cine ha respondido a este cambio incluyendo personajes inmigrantes en las obras y planteando en las mismas cuestiones relacionadas con el tema. Este tipo de cine se denomina “de inmigración” o “de inmigrantes” y muestra una preocupación de los directores por tratar contenidos sociales en sus obras. No obstante, existe una tendencia a ...

Using Ning For Conversation Partner Networks, Krista Bittenbender Royal Jul 2010

Using Ning For Conversation Partner Networks, Krista Bittenbender Royal

INTO Faculty and Staff Publications

Providing opportunities for conversation practice is one way that an IEP can help students improve their English as well as enhance their engagement in the language learning process. However, matching individual language learners to fluent English speakers can be difficult and time consuming. This workshop will introduce participants involved in setting up such interactions to Ning, a free online social networking platform which can facilitate the creation of individualized networks. Participants will gain insights into how one IEP used Ning to connect ELLs to university students interested in having conversation partners.

Masculinities In Conflict: Representations Of The Other In Narrative During The Spanish Civil War, Iker González-Allende Jun 2010

Masculinities In Conflict: Representations Of The Other In Narrative During The Spanish Civil War, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

In this article, I analyze the representation of the Other in three texts that were published during the Spanish Civil War: El infierno azul (1938?), by Republican Isidro R. Mendieta, and two closely related works by Falangist Jacinto Miquelarena: Cómo fui ejecutado en Madrid (1937) and El otro mundo: La vida en las embajadas de Madrid (1938). Although these texts adhere to different political ideologies and are stylistically very divergent, they are similar in their constant criticisms of the enemy. Furthermore, both Republicans and rebels tend to depict the enemy as possessing an inadequate masculinity. He is described, on one ...


Verbal Complex Phenomena In West Central German: Empirical Domain And Multi-Causal Account, Shannon A. Dubenion-Smith Jun 2010

Verbal Complex Phenomena In West Central German: Empirical Domain And Multi-Causal Account, Shannon A. Dubenion-Smith

Modern & Classical Languages

This paper is a synchronic investigation of verbal complex phenomena in the West Central German dialects. The types of verbal complexes attested in 187 recordings of West Central German from the Zwirner Corpus are first classified and analyzed. A GoldVarb analysis reveals that in subordinate clause two-verb complexes, the factor groups syntagm and verbal prefix type have statistically significant effects on word order, while in main clause two-verb complexes the factor groups syntagm, verbal prefix type, and a grammatical correlate to focus have statistically significant effects. Taking as a point of departure Lötscher 1978 and Sapp 2007, a multi-causal account ...


Review Of: Auxiliary Verb Constructions, Edward J. Vajda Jun 2010

Review Of: Auxiliary Verb Constructions, Edward J. Vajda

Modern & Classical Languages

This monograph offers much to typologists and historical-comparative linguists alike. Although some readers may balk at including under the single rubric of auxiliary verb construction the entire range of structurally diverse types of complex predicates examined here, the results of this study thoroughly vindicate bringing them together in a single analysis.

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman Feb 2010

Verbal Inflectional Morphology In L1 And L2 Spanish: A Frequency Effects Study Examining Storage Versus Composition, Harriet Bowden, Matthew Gelfand, Christina Sanz, Michael Ullman

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study examines the storage versus composition of Spanish inflected verbal forms in first language (L1) and second language (L2) speakers of Spanish. L2 participants were selected to have mid-to-advanced proficiency, high classroom experience, and low immersion experience, typical of medium-to-advanced foreign language learners. Participants were shown the infinitival forms of verbs from either Class I (the default class, which takes new verbs) or Classes II and III (nondefault classes) and were asked to produce either first-person singular present tense or imperfect forms, in separate tasks. In the present tense, the L1 speakers showed inflected-form frequency effects (i.e., higher ...
