Tracing The Origins Of Success: Implications For Successful Aging, Nora M. Peterson, Peter Martin 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Tracing The Origins Of Success: Implications For Successful Aging, Nora M. Peterson, Peter Martin

French Language and Literature Papers

Purpose of the Study: This paper addresses the debate about the use of the term “successful aging” from a humanistic, rather than behavioral, perspective. It attempts to uncover what success, a term frequently associated with aging, is: how can it be defined and when did it first come into use? In this paper, we draw from a number of humanistic perspectives, including the historical and linguistic, in order to explore the evolution of the term “success.” We believe that words and concepts have deep implications for how concepts (such as aging) are culturally and historically perceived.

Design and Methods: We ...

Funny Or French: How Humor Varies Across Cultures, Audrey Mefford 2014 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Funny Or French: How Humor Varies Across Cultures, Audrey Mefford

Honors Theses

This paper examines the works of four cartoonists (Saul Steinberg, Jean-Jacques Sempé, Roz Chast, and Claire Bretécher) in order to determine similarities and differences between French humor and American humor. It incorporates compiled data from each of the above artist's lifetime works, as well as knowledge from the fields of cartoons and comics, sociology, and cross-cultural psychology, to answer the question "What is funny?" in each of these two disparate cultures.


La Prostitution Dans La Culture Française Du Dix-Neuvième Siècle: Classe, Sexe, Et Contagion, Kelsey Callahan 2014 University of New Orleans

La Prostitution Dans La Culture Française Du Dix-Neuvième Siècle: Classe, Sexe, Et Contagion, Kelsey Callahan

Senior Honors Theses

The creation of the French Penal Code of 1791, which failed to address the legality of prostitution, and the social climate of nineteenth-century France led to the rapid development of sexual commerce. The spread of syphilitic diseases soon became a serious crisis, and the fault of the spread of syphilis and disease was quickly ascribed to purchasable women. Other social crises of the time, such as problems with sewage and the spread of disease and decay also came to be associated with prostitution. My thesis will examine ways in which male artists of the time used literature and painting to ...

English Dissertations

My project explores a diverse group of novels from different cultures and countries to reach beyond the earlier model of Postcolonial Literature structured around Edward Said's seminal Orientalism with Great Britain as the center. I consider the histories and literature of nations farther afield than those that make up the canon of Commonwealth Literature to address the role of U.S. imperialism, as well as other forms of European colonialism, that are not taken into account by the orientation of global literature around Said's paradigm. This opening up of the field will make room for the complex reverberations ...

Attitude Of French Writer-Priest, Dead 33 Years, Reflected In Word And Deed By Pope Francis, Eamon Maher 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology

Attitude Of French Writer-Priest, Dead 33 Years, Reflected In Word And Deed By Pope Francis, Eamon Maher

Articles

On October 30th, 1913, in the French village of Montauban-de- Bretagne, Joseph Lemarchand was born, the only child of a tenant-farming family that was ripped asunder by the death of his father in the Great War. A few decades later, as a writer-priest stationed in the Breton capital, Rennes, Lemarchand took the pseudonym Jean Sulivan, a name inspired by his fascination with the movie Sullivan’s Travels . When reading Pope Francis’ groundbreaking interview last August, I had the uncanny feeling that the new pontiff’s views strongly echo what Sulivan was writing in the 1960s and 1970s. A commitment to ...

Partir Marron: Un Parcours Sémantique À Travers Les Trous De La Mémoire Collective Haïtienne, Lucie Carmel Paul

Dissertations and Theses, 2014-Present

The word "marron " represents both a totality, and a specificity. Totalizing, the term refers to the slave who fled from the plantation, against the colonial order, that is, the fugitive slave. Specific, in the Haitian lexicography, it stands for a shifty and cunning individual, particularily a " Woule m debò "1. One has to recognize that there is a double meaning associated with the word, and at the same time, the syntagmatic locution "partir marron " reflects the individual's dependency on phenomenology. The moment of crisis is one of an explosion, through which one can only be free by severing all ...


“Nedjma As Salammbô: Kateb’S Intertextual Narrative Of National Plurality”, Sage Goellner 2014 SelectedWorks

“Nedjma As Salammbô: Kateb’S Intertextual Narrative Of National Plurality”, Sage Goellner

Sage Goellner

Kateb Yacine’s 1956 novel Nedjma is read as articulating a moment of national awakening. The pursuit of the mysterious character Nedjma by four lovers has been read as an allegory of the quest for an independent Algeria. In this article, I explore the questions opened up by Nedjma’s designation as Salammbô, Gustave Flaubert’s Carthaginian heroine in Salammbô (1862). Nedjma as Salammbô creates a figure of métissage in which one or more cultural traditions is interwoven. In addition, whereas the name “Salammbô” evokes the specific intertext of Flaubert’s novel, any precise reference is made uncertain by the ...
