findings from a 2017 study of instructor and learner perspectives on writing in French.


Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, Sylviane Ngandu-Kalenga Greensword 2017 Louisiana State University

Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, Sylviane Ngandu-Kalenga Greensword

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Black women wearing fabulous braids are a striking feature of the Afro-diasporic cultural landscape. However, the braiders and salon owners who enable this aesthetic engineering are seldom acknowledged. This dissertation investigates the experience and role of Caribbean and West and Central African women in the hair braiding industry, a rapidly growing business in the U.S. I address the complexity of these women’s multiple social roles and the multiple consciousness (King, 1988) associated with their demographic characteristics (color, ethnicity, gender, nationality, and immigrant status). The commonalities between the braiders and their mostly African American customers contrast vividly with their ...


Clemence Of Barking And Valdes Of Lyon: Two Contemporaneous Examples Of Innovation In The Twelfth Century, Lisa Murray 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Clemence Of Barking And Valdes Of Lyon: Two Contemporaneous Examples Of Innovation In The Twelfth Century, Lisa Murray

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Twelfth Century in Western Europe was a remarkable time in history. Scholars have noted that Roman law was being revived, Aristotelian theory was being studied, Romanesque and Gothic art was being produced, scholasticism was being cultivated, and economic growth was being fostered by the rise of towns. These are just some of the developments that help give this era the well-known term “twelfth-century renaissance.” Despite the flourishing of creativity that this label suggests, there are few surviving, specific examples of innovation from this time that have been passed down to us. In AD 1175 the Benedictine nun Clemence of ...

Marguerite Abouet: Une (Im)Posture Dans La Bande Dessinée Africaine Francophone, Rosemonde Assanvo-Kadjo

Mouvances Francophones

La bande dessinée est un genre ou un art dans lequel l’image (le dessin) et l’écrit se mettent ensemble et se mêlent intimement pour raconter une seule et même histoire. S’intéressant à sa construction et à son fonctionnement, Thierry Groensteen la perçoit comme un ‘’système’’, créé par la « combinatoire originale d’une (ou deux, avec l’écrit) matière(s) de l’expression, et d’un ensemble de codes», qui demande à son lecteur de trouver en son sein « une voie d’accès […] qui permette de l’explorer dans sa totalité et d’en faire apparaître la cohérence ...


L'Eutrapélie Au Fondement De La Bande Dessinée Francophone De Mayotte. Comparaison De Vincent Liétar Et Cyrille Le Corre, Christophe Cosker 2017 Centre universitaire de Mayotte

L'Eutrapélie Au Fondement De La Bande Dessinée Francophone De Mayotte. Comparaison De Vincent Liétar Et Cyrille Le Corre, Christophe Cosker

Mouvances Francophones

Île restée française dans l’archipel des Comores, Mayotte est considérée par l’un de ses écrivains francophones comme une « miette d’Afrique » (Baco, 2011 : 52) perdue dans l’océan Indien. Pour cette raison, on peut considérer la bande dessinée francophone de Mayotte comme une africaine, voire swafricaine étant donné que la langue de l’île provient du swahili, comme le confirment les étymons recueillis par Sophie Blanchy dans son dictionnaire de la langue de Mayotte (Blanchy, 1996). La « littérature en estampes », pour reprendre l’expression par laquelle la désignait son père Töpffer, apparaît à Mayotte dans les années 1980 ...

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

This study aimed at examining the pedagogical needs and challenges of children and young adults living in a refugee camp in France known as the Calais Jungle. Through the researchers’ observations and interviews with volunteer teachers and workers at the camp, insights into their perspectives shed light on the pedagogical needs of refugees. Also, utilizing Paulo Freire’s philosophical stance, this study provides a contextual approach to the educational practices and ideological viewpoints represented within unregulated refugee camp settings.

La Emigración A Norteamérica, La Peregrinación Y La Hospitalidad, Charli Tyree 2017 University of Alabama at Birmingham

La Emigración A Norteamérica, La Peregrinación Y La Hospitalidad, Charli Tyree

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

¿Qué es la peregrinación?: Hay varias definiciones de la palabra “peregrinación.” Una peregrinación es un viaje largo hecho a un lugar especial o sagrado para la urificación, como un acto de algún tipo de afiliación religiosa (Duque 270). Por ejemplo, cuando los cristianos van en peregrinación, viajan a un lugar que se considera especial para su fe personal, un práctico más viejo que cosmocentrismo teocrático (Duque 273). Estos lugares podrían ser donde nació Jesús, donde han ocurrido milagros, donde está enterrado un santo, como el Camino de Santiago, o cualquier otro lugar mencionado en la Biblia y que contiene un ...


Un’Analisi Di Sei Poesie Di Sibilla Aleramo, Olivia Mazza 2017 Kennesaw State University

Un’Analisi Di Sei Poesie Di Sibilla Aleramo, Olivia Mazza

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Sibilla Aleramo è lo pseudonimo di Rina Faccio, un’autrice italiana, nata a Alessandra, in Italia, il 14 agosto 1876 e morta il 13 gennaio 1960 a Roma. Lei era una femminista meglio conosciuta per le sue raffigurazioni autobiografiche della vita come una donna nel tardo XIX secolo in Italia. Aleramo dice che si sente come se lei avesse vissuto tre vite. "La sua 'vita prima,' come madre e moglie, è delineata nel suo romanzo Una Donna. Una citazione da Una Donna spiega: “Ubbidisci al comando della tua coscienza, rispetta sopra tutto la tua dignità, madre: sii forte, resisti lontana ...

Florecitas Roqueras: Rock, Punk Y El Problema De Género En Hispanoamérica, Micaela Lyons

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Se puede afirmar que la sociedad latinoamericana en general es predominantemente patriarcal, una en la que sus miembros tienen ideas rígidas sobre las vidas de las mujeres y en la que los hombres tienen cierta ventaja. En este sentido, el rock y la industria de música no son diferentes. Sin embargo, a lo largo de la historia moderna la música rock ha abierto varias posibilidades para otorgar poder a las mujeres, ofreciéndoles herramientas para rechazar la naturaleza patriarcal y dominante de su entorno. En este ensayo, exploro las relaciones entre las mujeres y el rock para mostrar como estas mujeres ...

Gedichte Als Antwort Auf Den 2. Weltkrieg: Gomringers Und Jandls Konkrete Poesie In Der Nachkriegszeit, Miranda Gilgore

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Die konkrete Poesie wurde erstmals schriftlich als solche 1955 genannt (McCullough ix; Bornscheuer 418). Die Art stammt aus dem Altgriechischen und Lateinischen, aber zwei brasilianische Dichter sowie der Schweizer Eugen Gomringer brachten konkrete Poesie zur bedeutenden Rolle in der Diskussion von Poesie (McCullough ix; Bornscheuer 418). Konkrete Poesie diente als Bruch von der Dichtung der Vergangenheit und den zugehörigen Regeln (Gomringer Theorie der konkreten Poesie 12-18). Was bedeutend an konkreter Poesie ist, ist dass sie keine bestimmte Syntax und kein festgelegtes Reimschema hat (McCullough vii). Der Name konkrete Poesie bezieht sich auf die Wichtigkeit der Form und Gestalt der Poesie ...


Geräusche Von Innen: Musik Und Der Kuleschow Effekt Im Film Die Wand, Brianna Bean 2017 Butler University

Geräusche Von Innen: Musik Und Der Kuleschow Effekt Im Film Die Wand, Brianna Bean

The Kennesaw Tower Undergraduate Foreign Language Research Journal

Musik ist ein wichtiger Teil jedes Films, weil Musik die Emotionen der Zuschauer so stark manipulieren kann. Es gibt wenig Musik in Julian Pölslers Film, Die Wand, aber die Musik, die es gibt, ist wichtig, weil sie eine unerwartete Tiefe in den Film bringt. Der Film beginnt mit einem fröhlichen Popsong, darauf folgen verschiedene Klänge, die sich im Film wiederholen und die ich hier als „Musik“ lese und analysiere. Schließlich gibt es wiederholt Stücke der Partita Nummer Zwei für Violine von J. S. Bach. Diese Musikbeispiele drücken das zentrale Filmthema der Selbstisolation aus. Wegen des Popsongs zu ...


Agency And Political Engagement In Gide And Barrault's Post-War Theatrical Adaptation Of Kafka's The Trial, Yevgenya Strakovsky 2017 Stanford University

Agency And Political Engagement In Gide And Barrault's Post-War Theatrical Adaptation Of Kafka's The Trial, Yevgenya Strakovsky

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article, "Agency and Political Engagement in Gide and Barrault's Post-war Theatrical Adaptation of Kafka's The Trial" Yevgenya Strakovsky considers the political themes of André Gide and Jean-Louis Barrault's Le Procès (The Trial, 1947), the first theatrical adaptation of Franz Kafka's Der Prozess (The Trial, 1914). Strakovsky demonstrates that Le Procès, written and staged in the immediate aftermath of World War II, levels a critique against the passive complicity of citizens in unjust persecution in both its script and its staging. The paper also considers the elements of Kafka's prose that lend themselves to ...

The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson 2017 The University of Western Ontario

The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Rationality points to the complete annihilation and end of a life when the body perishes, and yet when a loved one dies we continue to experience that person in a myriad of ways. The focus of this thesis will be a phenomenological exploration of the earthly afterlife of those we have loved and lost. By positing the subject as always intersubjective and as temporal in nature, this thesis will investigate how we continue to create and interact with the deceased upon the earth. In the introduction, this work will be placed in the context of the phenomenological tradition. The first ...
