Nationalism And Its Expression In Cuba’S Art Music: The Use Of Folklore In Mario Abril’S “Fantasia (Introduction And Pachanga)” For Clarinet And Piano, Nikolasa Tejero 2011 University of Kentucky

Nationalism And Its Expression In Cuba’S Art Music: The Use Of Folklore In Mario Abril’S “Fantasia (Introduction And Pachanga)” For Clarinet And Piano, Nikolasa Tejero

University of Kentucky Doctoral Dissertations

In the centuries since the colonization of the New World, the people of Cuba created a strong musical tradition. Initially, their music mirrored the European composition canons of structural, melodic and harmonic order. The eventual confluence of its distinct cultural elements (i.e. the European, African, and, to a lesser extent, Amerindian) led to the emergence of a new, distinctly Cuban musical tradition.

The wars for independence that began in the United States and Europe in the eighteenth century created a surge towards political and cultural autonomy that swept across the Latin American colonies, generating a wave of nationalism during ...


From The Other Side Of The River: The Mexican Revolution In El Paso Collections, Claudia A. Rivers 2011 University of Texas at El Paso Library

From The Other Side Of The River: The Mexican Revolution In El Paso Collections, Claudia A. Rivers

Mexican Revolution Resources

The Mexican Revolution affected El Paso and the surrounding border region in many ways, and some of its first important events occurred right across the border in Ciudad Juarez. Reporters flocked to the area to photograph and report on the events, and members of Mexican political factions came to El Paso to publish and publicize their points of view. The El Paso Public Library, El Paso County Historical Society, and the University of Texas at El Paso participated in a collaborative project to make many of the historical resources relating to the Mexican Revolution on the border available in digital ...

The 1937 International Sugar Agreement: Neo-Colonial Cuba And Economic Aspects Of The League Of Nations, Michael Fakhri 2011 University of Oregon

The 1937 International Sugar Agreement: Neo-Colonial Cuba And Economic Aspects Of The League Of Nations, Michael Fakhri

Michael Fakhri

To many in the West, the League of Nations was to establish political peace between nations. To the Cuban sugar-producing elite of the 1920s and 1930s, however, the League was an important socioeconomic institution used to augment many of Cuba’s first modern state institutions. This article explores how and why Cuban delegates were the principals behind the 1937 International Sugar Agreement – one of the League’s few operational economic treaties. This treaty sheds light onto how actors from the so-called industrial core and agricultural periphery used international law, institutions, and practice to negotiate and renegotiate their relationship with each ...

THE MEXICAN HYDRA: HOW CALDERÓN’S PURSUIT OF PEACE LED TO THE BLOODIEST WAR IN MEXICAN HISTORY. WILL THE MEXICAN PEOPLE INHERIT A FAILED STATE IN 2012?

Abstract

Marco Antonio Pinon-Farah

The drug-war in Mexico (2006-present) has accelerated at a chilling rate, claiming the lives of 35,000 Mexican people. Since President Felipe Calderón assumed office, Mexico has been battling an internal beast unlike any it has known, the Mexican Hydra. Like the mythical creature, the Mexican cartels have proven capable of not only combating the government forces, but also of regenerating and strengthening themselves in the face of increasing ...


La Vida En Pobreza: Oscar Lewis, Puerto Rico, And The Culture Of Poverty, Steven Andrew Dike 2011 University of Colorado at Boulder

La Vida En Pobreza: Oscar Lewis, Puerto Rico, And The Culture Of Poverty, Steven Andrew Dike

History Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Oscar Lewis was a cultural anthropologist whose work documented the lives of the world‘s poor. He developed a hypothesis called the ―culture of poverty‖ which held that the desperately poor in modern nations live within a distinct subculture that transcends national boundaries and separates the poor from the broader societies in which they live. Lewis also developed a novel ethnographic method that relied on a combination of tape-recorded interviews, material culture analysis and psychological examination. This dissertation traces the development of Lewis‘s theory and method through several of his works, focusing on La Vida, Lewis‘s final major ...


Modelos Masculinos Y Violencia En Sanctuary Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, Cesar Valverde 2011 Illinois Wesleyan University

Modelos Masculinos Y Violencia En Sanctuary Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, Cesar Valverde

Scholarship

This essay analyzes how two novels, William Faulkner’s Sanctuary and Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold, present masculine models that juxtapose power and violence during times of social crisis. Both novels present violent masculinities that overcome peaceful masculinities, in conflicts that result in murders and rapes; but rather than acuse the individuals responsible for the violent acts, the texts point out the social mechanisms that inexorably move the authors of the crimes. In both works we also see violence against women and resulting public deaths of men wrongly accused, which happen due to an inability to ...


Alvar Nuñez Cabeza De Vaca Y Sus Narrativas Sobre La Exploracion Del Rio De La Plata (1540-1545), Maria del Pilar Lopez-Castilla 2011 Western Michigan University

Alvar Nuñez Cabeza De Vaca Y Sus Narrativas Sobre La Exploracion Del Rio De La Plata (1540-1545), Maria Del Pilar Lopez-Castilla

Dissertations

Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca remains one of the most enigmatic and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, from the ruling elite to the wider public, are given the tools to understand and shape the new spheres of public life. Writing becomes a powerful tool in the shaping of a new reality, and as such, it must be studied with extreme care, so that a modern reader is able to discern where history ends and fiction or manipulation of history begin. The contact and constant negotiations for power between the two worlds cause a restructuring of the old discursive ...


From Out Of The Earth: Water, Maize And Caves In Ancient Maya Myth And Religion, Clara Scillian Kennedy 2011 Western Oregon University

From Out Of The Earth: Water, Maize And Caves In Ancient Maya Myth And Religion, Clara Scillian Kennedy

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (History)

Before the conquest of Central America by the Spanish, and before the Aztec empire came into its prime, the Maya dominated the Central American landscape. This civilization stretched from what is today southern Mexico, down through modern day Guatemala, Belize and parts of Honduras. Contrary to popular belief, these people were not a homogeneous group, but various separate city-states with their own political systems and agendas. However, most of these distinct groups seemed to have a good deal in common, namely their religious rituals and beliefs. Polytheistic to a large extent, the ancient Maya had a religious system that modern ...


American Merchants And The Chinese Coolie Trade 1850-1880: Contrasting Models Of Human Trafficking To Peru And The United States, Austin Schultz 2011 Western Oregon University

American Merchants And The Chinese Coolie Trade 1850-1880: Contrasting Models Of Human Trafficking To Peru And The United States, Austin Schultz

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (History)

The involvement of American merchants in the Chinese coolie trade which was at its height from 1850 to 1880 was inextricably linked to both the Peruvian guano trade and the growing demand for cheap labor in the United States. The discovery by English merchants of significant deposits of guano on the Chincha islands off of the coast of Peru in the early 1820's began a period of immense wealth as merchants realized the potential use of guano as fertilizer for European farmers.


Commitment Beyond Morality: American Complicity In The Massacre At El Mozote, El Salvador, 1981, Dustin Hill 2011 Eastern Kentucky University

Commitment Beyond Morality: American Complicity In The Massacre At El Mozote, El Salvador, 1981, Dustin Hill

Online Theses and Dissertations

In order to highlight the complicity of the American government, this thesis will discuss in depth the most important massacre perpetrated by the Salvadoran military. While the American government maintained publicly that respect for human rights was one of the main goals of its mission in El Salvador, the six billion dollars of aid and American actions in the region belied another reality. This examination argues that it is clear that the massacre at El Mozote in late 1981 was the direct result of U.S. foreign policy initiatives. Although the Americans kept themselves insulated to provide for plausible deniability ...
