La Lengua Gallega En La Diáspora Latinoamericana: La Tensión Entre Nacionalismo Y Sentimentalismo Y Sus Efectos En El Habla, Luke A. Bishop

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

En este estudio se explora el mantenimiento del gallego en las comunidades que emigraron a Latinoamérica en los siglos XIX y XX. Primero se contrastan las motivaciones de la comunidad gallega durante los periodos de emigración con el uso activo del gallego en varios centros culturales en las Américas. A continuación se analizan varios textos de la prensa gallega en La Habana y en Buenos Aires, y se comparan con revistas publicadas en los últimos años por centros gallegos en Buenos Aires y en México, DF. De este primer estudio exploratorio se propone que un factor que contribuyó al mantenimiento ...


Creando Cultura A Través De La Comida: Un Cuento De La Perseverancia Y El Ingenio Cubano, Gabriel Hatcher Jun 2019

Creando Cultura A Través De La Comida: Un Cuento De La Perseverancia Y El Ingenio Cubano, Gabriel Hatcher

World Languages and Cultures

This project analyzes the cultural impacts of Cuban culinary history starting with the 16th-century Spanish colonization. Cuba is an incredible case example for culinary adaptations due to its tumultuous history of population demographic shifts, political uprisings, and economic downturns. I will begin by analyzing the culinary shifts brought about the importation of African and Asian workers associated with the sugar cane industry. I then discuss the impact of the fall of the Batista government and the rise of the Cuban Revolutionary government. The Revolutionary government brought about standardization of available ingredients and helped popularize specific Cuban dishes until the fall ...

Una Polémica En La Habana: La Poesía Erótica De Mercedes Matamoros, Jorge L. Camacho Jan 2018

Una Polémica En La Habana: La Poesía Erótica De Mercedes Matamoros, Jorge L. Camacho

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Mercedes Matamoros was considered one of Cuba’s leading poets in late nineteenth century. She was also an outstanding representative of the modernist movement. However, very little have been written about her, the reason being the uneasiness some of her poems caused among her male readers. In this article I would like to explore the polemic that followed the publication of “El último amor de Safo” in Cuba’s journal El Fígaro, and the anonymous reviews that appeared in the Diario de la Marina. I would like to highlight how these poems were read at the time for their transgressive ...

Poesía E Historicidad En Ernesto Cardenal Y Roberto Fernández Retamar, Alberto David Rivera Vaca Dec 2013

Poesía E Historicidad En Ernesto Cardenal Y Roberto Fernández Retamar, Alberto David Rivera Vaca

Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation analyzes the meta-poetic and historicist thought in Ernesto Cardenal and Roberto Fernández Retamar’s poetry. The concept these poets have poetry is closely related to the historical moment of their times. They ponder about poetry and its function, poetic thought that is nourished by a historical consciousness. This close relationship between poetry and history inevitably includes sensitivity to the social situation in their respective countries and in Latin America. These poets seek to understand the concrete reality thus coming closer to the truth of things. The study shows that these poets, based on history and poetic thought, assume ...

La Voz Y La Violencia Invisible En El Cuento Caribeño Contemporáneo, Carmen Bourbon Jun 2009

La Voz Y La Violencia Invisible En El Cuento Caribeño Contemporáneo, Carmen Bourbon

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Some short stories by Caribbean women writers feature a female protagonist speaking in her own voice, telling her own story and coming to understand herself and her circumstances. In other texts, the protagonist's voice is challenged, overwhelmed or replaced by other voices, and she continues suffering psychologically. We examine the relationship between changes in the narrative voice and the female protagonist’s fate in twelve texts, demonstrating the consequences of her ability or inability to tell her story.

Each text displays a distinct correspondence between the protagonist’s life and how it is narrated. In "Masticar una rosa", "El ...
