Leer Y Escribir En Español: Una Manera De Mantener La L1 De Inmigrantes Mexicanos En Canadá, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

Basado en la idea de que las prácticas de lectoescritura son formas culturales de usar el lenguaje escrito (Barton et al. 2000), este trabajo examina las prácticas de lectoescritura en el hogar de cuatro familias mexicanas inmigrantes en el oeste de Canadá usando métodos etnográficos de investigación. Algunos de los resultados son que las prácticas de lectoescritura en el hogar son una manera en que los niños y sus padres pueden permanecer en contacto con su país de origen, con sus redes sociales y con su cultura; asimismo, son una manera de preservar y compartir sus prácticas culturales y la ...

What Code-Mixed Dps Can Tell Us About Gender, Elena Valenzuela, Joyce Bruhn De Garavito, Ewelina Barski, Maria De Luna Villalón, Ana Faure, Yolanda Pangtay, Alma Ramírez Trujillo, Sonia Reis

Joyce Bruhn de Garavito

There has been a growing interest in the examination of the steady state of simultaneous bilinguals. An understanding of what leads to the possible weaknesses in the grammar of early bilinguals can contribute to our understanding of the possible causes of the apparent characteristic ‘failures’ in second language acquisition (Montrul 2008). Spanish has a gender feature for nouns (Carroll 1989) and gender agreement for determiners and adjectives. Problems with the acquisition of gender marking on the noun and/or with gender agreement are well-known in the L2 literature (Hawkins 1998; Fernández–Garcia 1999; Franceschina 2001; Bruhn de Garavito and White ...

Prácticas De Lectoescritura En Los Exvotos, Maria De Luna Villalón 2010 University of Western Ontario

Prácticas De Lectoescritura En Los Exvotos, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

En este trabajo estudio las prácticas de lectoescritura en los exvotos, su producción y usos, tomando en cuenta que las prácticas de lectoescritura nos ayudan a tener una mejor idea del concepto de cómo se unen en la práctica la escritura y la lectura con las estructuras sociales (Barton, Hamilton & Ivanic, 2000). Exvoto quiere decir ‘por voto’ o ‘por promesa’ y es una práctica a través de la cual los fieles católicos dan testimonio de un favor o milagro obtenido por parte de un Santo, Virgen o Cristo. En su versión pictórica los exvotos son arte espontáneo sujeto a un ...

Art Fronts: Visual Culture And Race Politics In The Mid-Twentieth-Century United States, Erin P. Cohn 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Art Fronts: Visual Culture And Race Politics In The Mid-Twentieth-Century United States, Erin P. Cohn

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

ART FRONTS: VISUAL CULTURE AND RACE POLITICS IN THE MID-TWENTIETH-CENTURY UNITED STATES Erin Park Cohn Supervisor: Kathy Peiss Art Fronts argues that visual culture played a central and understudied role in the African American freedom struggle in the middle part of the twentieth century. In particular, it traces the political lives and cultural productions of a generation of visual artists, both black and white, who seized on the Depression-era ethos of art as a weapon to forge a particular form of visual activism that agitated for social, political, and economic equality for African Americans. Participating in the proliferation of visual ...

Ele: Una Comunidad De Práctica Donde Se Puede Promover El Diálogo Colaborativo Sobre Temas Interculturales, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

El diálogo colaborativo es una actividad que promueve la producción oral a través del compromiso activo y la participación constructiva. A partir del modelo World Café (2008), que tiene como objetivo promover el diálogo colaborativo, se pretende crear una atmósfera acogedora donde los estudiantes se puedan sentir cómodos para poder escuchar, comprender, pensar y hablar en español creativamente. Para poder realizar este tipo de actividad de manera exitosa, se recomienda que la clase de español como lengua segunda (L2) sea ya una Comunidad de Práctica. Una comunidad de práctica (CdP) está compuesta por un grupo de personas que comparten prácticas ...


Multilingual Landscape: A Manifestation Of Linguistic And Social Segregation, Maria De Luna Villalón 2010 University of Western Ontario

Multilingual Landscape: A Manifestation Of Linguistic And Social Segregation, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

The term Linguistic Landscape (LL) is used to name the written language used in “public road signs, advertising billboards, street names, place names, commercial shop signs, and public signs on government buildings” (Landry and Bourhis, 1997, 4) of a specific territory with informative or symbolic functions, where objective and subjective ethnolinguistic vitality can be perceived. In the Canadian setting, the presence of one, other, or both of the official languages of the country implies the demographic presence of a particular ethnolinguistic group. However, within a multicultural and varied ethnolinguistic population, the presence or absence of a non-official language seems to ...


From Fishing Weirs To Fancy Baskets: How Changes In Native American Basketry Forms Reflect Changes In The Economic Independence Of Native American Women During Colonization, Heidi J. Pickering 2010 Skidmore College

From Fishing Weirs To Fancy Baskets: How Changes In Native American Basketry Forms Reflect Changes In The Economic Independence Of Native American Women During Colonization, Heidi J. Pickering

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

Contrary to the absence of Native American women in many reports and journals of early explorers and colonists, Native American women from the Coastal Algonquin and Wasco/Wishram communities played a central role in early trade with Euro-Americans through their traditional socioeconomic status as agricultural and subsistence gatherers and inter/intra-tribal tradeswomen. These native women harvested available natural resources for food, bark, and fiber with which they fed their communities and constructed baskets in standard units of measurement for trade reflecting that pre-contact trade networks and food value systems were well established and highly valued. Through an examination of scholarly ...
