Traces Of Identity: Portraiture In The Work Of Teresa Margolles, Alexandra M. Perez 2019 Southern Methodist University

Traces Of Identity: Portraiture In The Work Of Teresa Margolles, Alexandra M. Perez

Art History Theses and Dissertations

Teresa Margolles, born in Culiacán, Mexico, is a socially engaged conceptual artist whose work examines the causes and consequences of death from the 1990s to the present in her home country. Margolles’s work has been largely discussed in the context of death and violence, and this thesis expands upon this literature by including the concepts of identity and portraiture. By examining how Margolles’s installations, sculptures, and photography use material remains to display identity and memorialize victims, this thesis argues that Margolles not only creates memorials, but also portraits of the fallen victims.

Using the frameworks of portraiture, the ...

"Actividades Femeninas" Collective Exhibitions Of Women In Chile Between 1914 And 1939, Gloria Cortes

Artl@s Bulletin

In 1927 the Great Female Exhibition was held in Chile within the framework of the fiftieth anniversary of the Amunátegui Decree (1877), a precept that allowed women to go to university. The Exhibition was the result of a series of initiatives by the high bourgeoisie that began in 1914 with the creation of women's organizations such as the Women's Art Society.

Twelve years later, in 1939, the MEMCH Pro Emancipation Movement of Women in Chile held the Feminine Activities exhibition, conceived as a response to previous experiences led by the elite, and focused on the political and social ...

Revitalización Económica: The Change of Chilean Economic Principles in the 1970s

Socio-economic policy reforms of the 1970s had a profound impact on Chilean society. These reforms were highly controversial and sharply debated both nationally and internationally. My project investigates the impact of foreign interventions on Chile’s economy and society. These interventions resulted in a rise in economic activity and, at the same time, produced substantial social unrest. Despite social instability and human rights violations, these economic interventions forged the framework for a stable economic future. At the center of these economic reforms stood the 'Chicago Boys' and their program ...

It will begin by delving into the influence of European artistic styles blending with Latin American culture and style of painting and vice versa. The final goal of this paper is to uncover the syncretism that took place across Latin America ...

From The Spanish Atlantic Archives To The Classroom In The Arctic: Perspectives On Linking Digital Projects And Undergraduate Research In History, Rachael Ball, Caroline Streff, Brittney Anderson, Lauren Caraghar, John Macy

Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

This article discusses the creation, development, and use of a digital archive of early modern Spanish and colonial Cuban sources from faculty and undergraduate student perspectives. The student authors of this essay include members of a digital team, who researched specific topics and aided in the development of the ePortfolio, and students who piloted the digital archive as a resource for the classroom, including for use in research papers. We make the case for using digital tools to broaden access to materials and to help students understand historical research methodologies. We see this as a potential model for faculty, including ...


Chinese Cubans: Transnational Origins And Revolutionary Integration, Kevin J. Morris 2019 Georgia College and State University

Chinese Cubans: Transnational Origins And Revolutionary Integration, Kevin J. Morris

The Corinthian

The Chinese legacy in Cuba exists in a dual state, at once both a fundamental aspect of the Cuban people and the Cuban nationality while also an oft-overlooked strand in the fabric of Cuban society and culture. While today the official number of Chinese-born Cubans in Cuba is low, the number of Chinese-descendants in Cuba may well number in the hundreds of thousands. This duality merits exploration, as it sheds light on the unique experiences of Chinese Cubans and Chinese-descendants through several eras of Cuban history. Most interestingly, the role and presence of Chinese Cubans in the Cuban Revolution provides ...


Teresa Carreño’S Early Years In Caracas: Cultural Intersections Of Piano Virtuosity, Gender, And Nation-Building In The Nineteenth Century, Laura Pita 2019 University of Kentucky

Teresa Carreño’S Early Years In Caracas: Cultural Intersections Of Piano Virtuosity, Gender, And Nation-Building In The Nineteenth Century, Laura Pita

Theses and Dissertations--Music

This dissertation studies the musical activities of the Venezuelan pianist and composer Teresa Carreño (1853-1917) during her formative years in Caracas. It examines the sources that pertain to her musical environment, early piano training, and first compositions in the context of the growth in Caracas of the practices of recreational sociability, the increasing influence of virtuosic music, and the tradition of private concert-making sponsored by devoted music amateurs. This study argues that Teresa Carreño’s musical upbringing occurred in a social and cultural context in which Enlightenment-framed ideologies of civilization and social progress, shaped in fundamental ways the perceptions of ...


Spanish California Missions: An Economic Success, Lynne Doti 2019 Chapman University

Spanish California Missions: An Economic Success, Lynne Doti

Economics Faculty Articles and Research

Starting in 1769, the Spanish established missions in Alta California. A small band of soldiers, Franciscan priests and volunteers walked from Baja California to San Francisco Bay through semi-arid, scarcely populated land stopping occasionally to establish a location for a religious community. Usually two priests, a few soldiers and a few Indians from Baja California settled at the spot. Their only resources for starting an economy were themselves, a few animals and a nearby source of water. They attracted the local Indians to join the community and perform the work necessary to create a strong economy. After only a few ...


Truth, Knowledge & Storytelling: Postcolonial Aspects Of Epistemological Problems In The Works Of Gabriel García Márquez, Anne Carrica 2019 Regis University

Truth, Knowledge & Storytelling: Postcolonial Aspects Of Epistemological Problems In The Works Of Gabriel García Márquez, Anne Carrica

All Regis University Theses

The purpose of this thesis is to explore epistemological problems in various works of Gabriel García Márquez. Understanding and questioning who tells the story and who has the right to tell the story is an important question that guides this project. Through understanding important historical events of Colombia like the Banana Massacre and key events within One Hundred Years of Solitude different epistemological issues become apparent.

The question of representation and who tells the story matters because it greatly affects the story that is told. Countries and people who have been stripped or denied a voice often face challenges in ...

Entwined Threads Of Red And Black: The Hidden History Of Indigenous Enslavement In Louisiana, 1699-1824, Leila K. Blackbird 2018 University of New Orleans

Entwined Threads Of Red And Black: The Hidden History Of Indigenous Enslavement In Louisiana, 1699-1824, Leila K. Blackbird

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

Contrary to nationalist teleologies, the enslavement of Native Americans was not a small and isolated practice in the territories that now comprise the United States. This thesis is a case study of its history in Louisiana from European contact through the Early American Period, utilizing French Superior Council and Spanish judicial records, Louisiana Supreme Court case files, statistical analysis of slave records, and the synthesis and reinterpretation of existing scholarship. This paper primarily argues that it was through anti-Blackness and anti-Indigeneity and with the utilization of socially constructed racial designations that “Indianness” was controlled and exploited, and that Native Americans ...
