Forging Alliances Across Fronteras: Transnational Narratives Of Female Migration And The Family, Vanessa de Veritch Woodside 2017 Selected Works

Forging Alliances Across Fronteras: Transnational Narratives Of Female Migration And The Family, Vanessa De Veritch Woodside

Vanessa de Veritch Woodside

This dissertation examines the effects of transnational migration on women with particular attention to the (re-)negotiation of personal and cultural identity resulting from the adoption of novel roles within Chicana narratives of Mexican migration. Chapter One offers a historical background regarding the U.S.-Mexico border, (im)migration, and more specifically, women and migration, as well as an overview of pertinent Chicano migrant literature that serves as an appropriate point of departure for discussion of Chicana re-writings of such texts. This discussion offers border feminism as a framework for analyzing the representation of evolving feminine roles and familial configurations ...

Indigenous Experiences In Agricultural Production In Ecuador: Sustaining And Ancient Cultural Tradition Of Growing And Consuming Quinoa, Sumac Elisa Cárdenas Oleas 2017 Iowa State University

Indigenous Experiences In Agricultural Production In Ecuador: Sustaining And Ancient Cultural Tradition Of Growing And Consuming Quinoa, Sumac Elisa Cárdenas Oleas

Elisa Cardenas

Colonialization’s racism and discrimination in Latin America have pushed many indigenous populations to poverty in isolated rural areas with limited access to resources, education, and technology, particularly as relates to agriculture, their main source of income and employment. Governments and development organizations recognize agriculture as a key channel for developmental growth in rural areas. Fundamyf, a non-governmental organization, has focused on promoting agricultural growth to increase the quality of life of small-scale indigenous producers through the production, consumption, and sale of quinoa. While quinoa is an ancient crop traditionally consumed and produced by indigenous populations in the Andes of ...


Rodríguez Studies America’S Image Of Cuba And Of Itself, Aldemaro Romero Jr. 2017 CUNY Bernard M Baruch College

Rodríguez Studies America’S Image Of Cuba And Of Itself, Aldemaro Romero Jr.

Publications and Research

“It has to do with my emotional DNA— storytelling and maternal love are linked together. I was brought up by women who read to me as a kid. I love storytelling because I associate it with love, and that has carried over tremendously throughout my life.” That is how Dr. Rick Rodríguez explains his love for literature.

A native of Havana, Cuba, Rodríguez went on to receive his bachelor’s in English from Florida International University and his doctorate, also in English, from the University of Chicago. Today he is an assistant professor in the Department of English of the ...


Cinematographic Resources As Meaningful Affordances In A Foreign Language Class, Denise Osborne 2017 University at Albany, State University of New York

Cinematographic Resources As Meaningful Affordances In A Foreign Language Class, Denise Osborne

Views from Below: The Underdog in Contemporary Latin American and Spanish Film

Cinematographic resources as meaningful affordances in a foreign language class.” In this presentation, Osborne will discuss a proposal for use of films as works of art in foreign languages classes. She will show how cinematographic features (e.g., sound, color, lighting, camera angles, mise-en-scène) and their implication for film narrative − rarely emphasized in foreign language classrooms − can be a powerful tool to engage students in a dialogical and ecological construction of knowledge. Consideration of cinematographic features in scenes from the Brazilian Portuguese films Abril Despedaçado (Cohn & Salles, 2001) and Raízes e Asas (Cabral & Pimenta, 2011), and how these features can ...


Scapegoating In The Films By Alejando Fernández Almendras, Ilka Kressner 2017 University at Albany, State University of New York

Scapegoating In The Films By Alejando Fernández Almendras, Ilka Kressner

Views from Below: The Underdog in Contemporary Latin American and Spanish Film

Chilean filmmaker Fernández Almendras has examined the processes of victimization of the “poor man” in several of his feature films, most prominently Matar a un hombre [To Kill a Man] (2014, Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Price at Sundance Festival) and Aquí no ha pasado nada [Much Ado About Nothing] (2016). Both works exemplify processes of victimization through verbal performative acts: words in the form of humiliations, menaces and blackmail become the fatal weapons of scapegoating.


Critically Interrogating Oregon History In The Archives: Spanish Heritage Learners In The Pcun Records, David Woken 2017 University of Oregon

Critically Interrogating Oregon History In The Archives: Spanish Heritage Learners In The Pcun Records, David Woken

OLA Quarterly

Critical librarianship has emerged over the past decade or so as one of the main thrusts of the library profession’s longstanding commitment to social justice. Growing from the application of insights from critical theory to libraries as an institution, the critical librarianship movement explores how hierarchies of power, particularly those around race, gender, sexuality, and class, shape our work, and how we can challenge our profession’s complicity in those hierarchies. Critical librarianship’s insights have been applied perhaps most thoroughly in the areas of cataloging and classification and, especially, information literacy instruction (Garcia, 2015). Critical information literacy instruction ...

Remembering To Prevent: The Preventive Capacity Of Public Memory, Kerry E. Whigham 2017 Columbia University

Remembering To Prevent: The Preventive Capacity Of Public Memory, Kerry E. Whigham

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

It is without doubt the case that memory of the past has been and is being used in certain places to justify radical intolerance and unspeakable violence. But for every instance where that is the case, a dozen alternative cases exist where memory creates cohesion, positive change, and a less violent society. This article focuses on the instances where memory does the latter. It first discusses why and how the formation of a public memory culture can be preventive of future violence. Next, it introduces several categories of memory practices, each of which exemplifies the embodied nature of public memory ...


“Those Who Don’T Remember Don’T Exist Anywhere:” Historical Redemption In Patricio Guzmán’S Nostalgia For The Light (2010), Cristina Ruiz-Poveda Vera 2017 University of Florida

“Those Who Don’T Remember Don’T Exist Anywhere:” Historical Redemption In Patricio Guzmán’S Nostalgia For The Light (2010), Cristina Ruiz-Poveda Vera

Journal of Religion & Film

The poetic aesthetic of Patricio Guzman’s documentary Nostalgia for the Light (2010) ponders the nature of memory and history. The film uses a metaphysical approach to explore the traumatic past of Chile, creating a sense of historical redemption as defined by Walter Benjamin (1940). Contemporary Latin American documentaries have abandoned the idea of objectivity to focus on subjective portrayals of memory as a way to capture the plurality of personal experiences of historical events. As a result, these documentaries have become more artistic and formally innovative than the previous epic informative films of the region. In the case of ...

This is a collection of works by a distinguished Latin American literary family.

The anthology includes uncollected pieces and English translations by Bruce Phenix.

Latina School Leadership: Breaking The Mold And Rising To The Top, Velma D. Menchaca, Shirley J. Mills, Filomena Leo

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

For this qualitative research study, interviews with two Latina school leaders revealed their journeys to leadership. The theoretical framework used was Latina critical race theory, feminist theory, and counter storytelling. Identified themes were strong supportive mother, fervent faith, humble beginnings, mentors, intelligent, and challenges not obstacles. These guiding themes serve as a path for Latinas who aspire to public school leadership positions.


On The Road To Nowhere: A Reading Of Franz Galich’S Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame Otra Vez!), Kerri A. Muñoz 2017 Auburn University

On The Road To Nowhere: A Reading Of Franz Galich’S Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame Otra Vez!), Kerri A. Muñoz

Dissidences

On the Road to Nowhere:

A Reading of Franz Galich’s Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame otra vez!)

This article examines how Franz Galich, in Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame otra vez!), narrates the Central American neoliberal experience from the perspective of the underprivileged. I explore how, beginning with the title, the author positions his protagonists in the neoliberal, fragmented moment. From there, Galich proceeds to document a night in the life of the marginalized. Here, Beatriz Cortez’s concept of cinismo is used to understand how the role-playing, that is central to the novel, brings into question arbitrary social barriers. In ...


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 2017 Colgate University

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 ...


Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn 2017 Chapman University

Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn

Exhibition Catalogs

"Emigdio Vasquez created artwork that challenged Orange County’s more prominent narrative of wealthy beachside neighborhoods. He painted the brown bodies and brown histories that defined our earliest communities and economy... Vasquez produced much of the local art history that Orange County should be known for and should protect. It is with this perspective that Chapman University is proud to present the exhibition, My Barrio: Emigdio Vasquez and Chicana/o Identity in Orange County, in conjunction with the Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative. We hope to initiate discourse not only about Vasquez’s prolific career, but also about ...
