"Introduction." In Don Quixote: The Re-Accentuation Of The World’S Greatest Literary Hero, Slav N. Gratchev Phd Dec 2017

"Introduction." In Don Quixote: The Re-Accentuation Of The World’S Greatest Literary Hero, Slav N. Gratchev Phd

Dr. Slav N. Gratchev

This book is a unique scholarly attempt to examine Don Quixote from multiple angles to see how the re-accentuation of the world’s greatest literary hero takes place in film, theatre, and literature. To accomplish this task, nineteen scholars from the United States, Canada, Spain, and Great Britain have come together, and each of them has brought his/her unique perspective to the subject. For the first time, Don Quixote is discussed from the point of re-accentuation, that is, having in mind one of the key Bakhtinian concepts that will serve as a theoretical framework. A primary objective was therefore ...

Asl: A Visual Language, Laura L. Wood Ph.D., Lmhc, Rdt_Bct, Miako Villanueva, Deanna Twain

Laura L. Wood

This chapter outlines the main concepts in the linguistic study of American Sign Language (ASL), a language used by deaf people in the United States and a large part of Canada. While the study of languages has been around for centuries, the vast majority of research has focused on spoken languages; approaching the signs used by deaf people as full-fledged, natural languages in their own right and therefore equally worthy of linguistic study is a relatively new concept. The first documented linguistic studies of signed language in the United States were carried out in the late 1950s and early 1960s ...


Promoting Student Success: Bilingual Education Best Practices And Research Flaws, Lillian Fassero Dec 2017

Promoting Student Success: Bilingual Education Best Practices And Research Flaws, Lillian Fassero

Senior Honors Theses

This paper first determines the benefits which bilingual education offers and then compares transitional, dual-language, and heritage language maintenance programs. After exploring the outcomes, contexts, and practical implications of the various bilingual programs, this paper explores the oversight in most bilingual studies, which assess students’ syntax and semantics while neglecting their understanding of pragmatics and discourse structures (Maxwell-Reid, 2011). Incorporating information from recent studies which question traditional understandings of bilingualism and argue that biliteracy requires more than grammatical and vocabulary instruction, this paper proposes modifications in current research strategies and suggests best practices for transitional, dual-language, and heritage maintenance programs.


Introduction. The Polyphonic World Of Cervantes And Dostoevsky, Slav N. Gratchev Phd Dec 2017

Introduction. The Polyphonic World Of Cervantes And Dostoevsky, Slav N. Gratchev Phd

Dr. Slav N. Gratchev

The communication and interrelation between Spanish and Russian literature have lasted for several centuries. At times, the connections grew weaker and at other times stronger, but they never disappeared completely. Throughout this period, which extends roughly from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, there were single instances when the relationship between Spanish and Russian literature was becoming very intense, and we can admit that these interactions were very productive for both sides. The careful study of motives, forms, and all possible aspects of such communication, even if reviewed only in part, can be both revealing and productive for Spanish literary ...


Mental Health Stigma In English And Spanish-Speaking Countries, Quinn Lambert Dec 2017

Mental Health Stigma In English And Spanish-Speaking Countries, Quinn Lambert

Honors College Theses

Mental health stigma, defined as negative attitudes and behaviors targeted towards individuals that appear to have a mental health disorder, is one of the most pressing issues faced by individuals with mental disorders (Corrigan, 2004). As a result, many individuals facing psychological health issues elect not to seek treatment due to fears of how they will be perceived and treated by other members of society. Research has shown that mental health stigma is a global phenomenon and is not limited to the US and other English-speaking nations (Pescosolido et al. 2013). The aim of this study was to examine differences ...

Modern Languages and Literatures: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Wir haben uns relativ spät kennen gelernt, erst im Jahre 2000, was ich immer bereut habe. Natürlich wusste ich davor von Egon Schwarz – wie hätte das in den Achtzigerjahren als Graduate Student der Germanistik an der University of Illinois auch anders sein können? Ich las seine literaturwissenschaftlichen Ausführungen etwa zu Hesse, Rilke, Thomas Mann, Schnitzler oder allgemeiner zur Exilliteratur und dachte mir, so möchte ich eines Tages schreiben können: nicht verschroben esoterisch übertheoretisierend, sondern elegant, verständlich und einleuchtend eingebettet in einen sozio-historischen Kontext. Ob ich das je geschafft habe, weiß ich nicht, aber ich weiß auf alle Fälle, dass Egons ...


Assertion And Its Many Norms, John N. Williams Dec 2017

Assertion And Its Many Norms, John N. Williams

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

Timothy Williamson offers the ordinary practice, the lottery and the Moorean argument for the ‘knowledge account’ that assertion is the only speech-act that is governed by the single ‘knowledge rule’ or norm, that one must know its content. I show that the emptiness of the knowledge account renders mysterious why breaking the knowledge rule should be a source of criticism. I then argue that focussing exclusively on the sincerity of the speech-act of letting one know engenders a category mistake about the nature of constraints on assertion. For Williamson and those in his tradition, assertion alls under purely epistemic norms ...


Citizens Of Memory: Affect, Representation, And Human Rights In Postdictatorship Argentina, Silvia Tandeciarz Nov 2017

Citizens Of Memory: Affect, Representation, And Human Rights In Postdictatorship Argentina, Silvia Tandeciarz

Arts & Sciences Books

Citizens of Memory explores efforts at recollection in post-dictatorship Argentina and the hoped-for futures they set in motion. The material, visual, narrative, and pedagogical interventions it analyzes address the dark years of state repression (1976-1983) while engaging ongoing debates about how this traumatic past should be transmitted to future generations. Two theoretical principles structure the book’s approach to cultural recall: the first follows from an understanding of memory as a social construct that is always as much about the past as it is of the present; the second from the observation that what distinguishes memory from history is affect ...


A Short Letter By Humboldt To Jefferson, Reinhard Andress Nov 2017

A Short Letter By Humboldt To Jefferson, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

At the tail end of his monumental trip of exploration and scientific discovery through Latin America from 1799 to 1804, the German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt visited President Thomas Jefferson in Washington. United by their common interests in the Enlightenment, they began a correspondence that endured until 1825. This contribution discusses a letter of 1811 by Humboldt to the former president, hitherto unpublished in English. Aside from closing a gap in their correspondence, the letter, although short, offers an illuminating insight into Humboldt’s personal, political, and scientific networks, which included such figures as Abbé José Correia da Serra and ...

Essay Writing Instructional Lexicon And Semantic Confusion, Amir Kalan Nov 2017

Essay Writing Instructional Lexicon And Semantic Confusion, Amir Kalan

Amir Kalan

“Introduction,” “body,” and “conclusion” are the most accessible words in the instructional lexicon for ESL writing teachers when they want to describe the structure of a typical five-paragraph persuasive or argumentative essay or its shorter variations for standardized tests such as TOEFL and IELTS. They are frequently employed to refer to the three tiers of the hamburger essay in textbooks, on classroom boards, and in YouTube tutorials.

Not surprisingly, English learners also might give you the same words if asked what the main components of an essay are. Like ESL teachers, students usually use the same terms or their equivalents ...


A Practice-Oriented Definition Of Post-Process Second Language Writing Theory, Amir Kalan Nov 2017

A Practice-Oriented Definition Of Post-Process Second Language Writing Theory, Amir Kalan

Amir Kalan

ENGLISH:

This article is a synthesis of the scholarly literature on the post-process approach to teaching second language (L2) writing, particularly college and university composition in English as an additional language. This synthesis aims to offer a definition of post-process L2 writing that can readily lend itself to practice and be more accessible to practitioners. All the publications that had either substantially or marginally discussed post-process theory since 1990 were systematically reviewed in order to answer the following question: What is a definition of post-process L2 writing theory that can readily lend itself to pedagogy and actual practice for helping ...
