Order Of Acquisition: A Comparison Of L1 And L2 English And Spanish Morpheme Acquisition, Kyle A. McFerren 2015 Liberty University

Order Of Acquisition: A Comparison Of L1 And L2 English And Spanish Morpheme Acquisition, Kyle A. Mcferren

Senior Honors Theses

This paper examines the order of acquisition for grammatical morphemes in Spanish and English first and second language learners. Brown’s first morpheme order study, conducted in 1973, laid the foundation for what would become one of the most common types of study conducted within the field of second language acquisition. The four orders of acquisition relevant here are examined and compared in order to support the roles of salience, morphophonological regularity, complexity, input frequency, and native language transfer in first and/or second language acquisition. The conclusion is that these five determinants work interdependently in determining the difficulty of ...


Considering Triple Self-Portraiture In The Work Of María Izquierdo, Brooke Lashley 2015 University of Connecticut

Considering Triple Self-Portraiture In The Work Of María Izquierdo, Brooke Lashley

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

This paper looks to María Izquierdo’s paintings, Prisioneras (Prisoners) of 1936 and Sueño y presentimiento (Dream and Premonition) of 1947, as case studies for activating a theory of triple self-portraiture. The theory reflects how plurality arises in the singular or in single significations of the self and disrupts homogeneity in thinking about identities for the self and others within the genre of self-portraiture. In activating a theory of triple self-portraiture, I found three forms of the self in Izquierdo's works: the self as oppressed (the past); the self as oppressing (the current); and the self as an emancipator ...


Otra Vez El Mar Y La Psicología De Carl Gustav Jung, Ángela Martín Pérez 2015 University of Connecticut - Storrs

Otra Vez El Mar Y La Psicología De Carl Gustav Jung, Ángela Martín Pérez

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

Poco antes de su muerte, el profesor Carl Gustav Jung aceptó realizar un trabajo de divulgación de sus ideas que se publicó bajo el nombre de El hombre y sus símbolos. En esta obra, el psicólogo ruso recupera su estudio de la estructura de la personalidad, que él entendía compuesta por cinco elementos conceptualizados por el Ego, la Persona, la Sombra, el Anima o Animus y el Sí Mismo. En el proceso de desarrollo del sí mismo, el sujeto se rodea de ciertas circunstancias en las que descubre su Persona, se enfrenta con la Sombra y se encuentra con el ...


La Malinche: Tres Paradigmas De Traducción, Denise Kripper 2015 Georgetown University

La Malinche: Tres Paradigmas De Traducción, Denise Kripper

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

Abstract: El siguiente trabajo rastreará los cambios discursivos alrededor de la figura de La Malinche, uno de los personajes más antagonizados del Nuevo Mundo. Se propone que éstos fueron variando según se sucedieron distintos paradigmas de traducción; a saber, el traductor entendido primero como entidad invisible y marginal, el traductor como traidor e infiel pero empoderado luego, y finalmente como una figura recuperada, un personaje deseable y necesario. Así, a través del lente de la traducción, es posible entender a La Malinche como instrumental a la conquista de México pero invisible en su relato, como una figura condenada y luego ...

Introduction: Highways Of The South, Daniel R. Quiles

Artl@s Bulletin

This introduction serves as a brief overview of this guest-edited issue of Artl@s Bulletin, which is dedicated to international networks in modern and contemporary Latin American art. Following a brief synopsis of the history of the field’s methodologies related to circulation, the articles that appear in this issue are summarized and compared. The author argues that a network- or circulation-based focus invariably incorporates heterogenous, even oppositional criteria.


Contrabienal: Latin American Art, Politics And Identity In New York, 1969-1971, Aimé Iglesias Lukin 2015 Department of Art History, Rutgers University

Contrabienal: Latin American Art, Politics And Identity In New York, 1969-1971, Aimé Iglesias Lukin

Artl@s Bulletin

This article focuses on a community of Latin American artists living in New York and the influence of regionalism and politics in their identification as a group, taking up the case of the Contrabienal, an art book published in 1971 as a call to boycott the XI São Paulo Biennial in protest of censorship and torture in dictatorial Brazil. The book was aesthetically eclectic and included artists from different generations. Still, its organizers were all part of the strong shift towards Conceptualism then taking place. In light of the current revision of the Latin American Conceptualism canon, this article analyzes ...

Vida Americana, 1919-1921. Redes Conceptuales En Torno A Un Proyecto Trans-Continental De Vanguardia, Natalia De La Rosa

Artl@s Bulletin

Este artículo analiza los orígenes cosmopolitas de la revista Vida-Americana, organizada en 1921 por el pintor mexicano David Alfaro Siqueiros. Se reflexiona sobre el concepto de universalismo y clasicismo artístico señalando las conexiones que Siqueiros tuvo en Barcelona con Joan Salvat-Papasseit, Joaquín Torres-García, Rafael Barradas, Diego Rivera, Marius de Zayas y Élie Faure. El estudio explica la alternativa que Siqueiros señaló para el desarrollo de nuevos centros de producción artística en América. El estudio presenta la unificación continental que el artista ideó desde la reflexión del impacto tecnológico en la modernidad, tomando como base la realización del dibujo Retrato del ...

The Coca Plant And Bolivian Identity, Matthew G. Russo 2015 Bowling Green State University

The Coca Plant And Bolivian Identity, Matthew G. Russo

International ResearchScape Journal

ABSTRACT

The political battle rages between the U.S. government, the U.N. and the Bolivian President, Evo Morales, about his efforts to protect, legalize and preserve the symbol of the Andean indigenous identity: the coca plant. The human rights of indigenous populations are being violated by culturally insensitive governments in compliance with U.S. and U.N. law. The questions posed are: Is coca cocaine? What are the economic benefits of the production of coca and who benefits? What is the relationship between coca and Bolivian identity? What would be the impact in the global community if coca is ...


The Welfare Crisis Of Central America, David Stoesz 2015 Hood College

The Welfare Crisis Of Central America, David Stoesz

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The crisis of Central America, fundamentally due to social injustice, is exacerbated as the Reagan administration seeks a "military polution" to political problems of the region. A humane approach to alleviating the devastating poverty of Central America necessitates reconciling two strategies of national development: a techno-economic strategy and a sociopolitical strategy. Both strategies leave important issues unresolved. The prospect of improving conditions for the people of Central America-diminishes as the region is increasingly militarized.

Nebulous Boundaries: Geographies Of Identity In El Hombre Del Acordeón, Julie A. Sellers 2015 Benedictine College

Nebulous Boundaries: Geographies Of Identity In El Hombre Del Acordeón, Julie A. Sellers

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Boundaries are never as definitive as they appear at first glance, for they create a broader zone, the borderlands, where the people, practices, and products from both sides comingle. Despite boundaries' demarcating intent, the borderlands they cross are a syncretic blend of the lands on each side. The borderland as fictional setting draws our attention not to the fixedness of boundaries, but rather to their flexibility. Set in the Dominican-Haitian borderland, Marcio Veloz Maggiolo's El hombre del acordeón ('The Accordion Man') draws upon the dynamism of that geopolitical border to call into question other apparently definitive boundaries, thus challenging ...

Enhancing Workplace Productivity And Competitiveness In Trinidad And Tobago Through Ict Adoption, Kennedy Jerome Swaratsingh 2015 Walden University

Enhancing Workplace Productivity And Competitiveness In Trinidad And Tobago Through Ict Adoption, Kennedy Jerome Swaratsingh

Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

The productivity of Trinidad and Tobago's public sector workplaces is related to their absorptive capacity for technological adoption. Guided by the technology acceptance model, which suggests that individuals' and institutions' use of technology increases in relation to perceived ease of use and apparent value, this case study explored how Trinidad and Tobago used information and communications technology from 2001 - 2010 to improve public sector workplace productivity. Study data were collected from 22 individual interviews with senior executives from the government of Trinidad and Tobago, members of the e-business roundtable, and local industry experts, and from reviewing the archives of ...


Citizenship Without Borders: Understanding Empathy And Domestic Direct Service As Powerful Approaches To Making Global Connections That Matter, Courtney Tielking 2015 Georgia Southern University

Citizenship Without Borders: Understanding Empathy And Domestic Direct Service As Powerful Approaches To Making Global Connections That Matter, Courtney Tielking

University Honors Program Theses

By unraveling a case study on Georgia Southern University's Alternative Break program, this research examines the relationship between empathy and globalization. Alternative Breaks are week-long trips, during University holidays, which facilitate and encourage direct service, immersion in a specific social issue, and guided reflection sessions. Four active Alternative Break participants and advisors were interviewed to outline accurately and depict their experience with culture-based Alternative Break trips. Their stories demonstrate an alternative to traveling abroad in order to achieve a sense of global citizenship. The research suggests that through empathy and direct service, one can become a global citizen without ...

Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg 2014 Princeton University

Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg

Dissidences

This article examines the ways in which writings by both Enrique Lihn and Roberto Bolaño enter into dialogue with the Chilean critical icon José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois. I argue that Lihn’s essay Sobre el antiestructuralismo de José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois (1983) and Bolaño’s novel Nocturno de Chile (2000) attempt to subvert the cultural dominance of Ibáñez Langlois through complex representations and interpretations of his theoretical relationship to language and silence. Keeping in mind Bolaño’s own admiration of Lihn, this article seeks to consider the ways in which Lihn’s polemic with Ibáñez Langlois during Pinochet's dictatorship ...


Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas 2014 Indiana University - Bloomington

Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas

Dissidences

This paper argues that the Left has not developed a theory for singular events such as Catalan separatism. Instead of conceiving it as a mere nationalist construct and rejecting it on behalf of federalism or universalism, I propose to focus on the transformative energies of this political and cultural movement. After tracing the historical links between separatism and radical leftist politics, my paper aims to extract three lessons from the project to build a new Catalan state: first, the possibility of formulating a right to vote based on residence and not on citizenship; second, the project to devise a non-culturalist ...
