Enseñar Superpoderes: La Importancia De Una Educación Bilingüe, 2018 Wright State University
Enseñar Superpoderes: La Importancia De Una Educación Bilingüe, Camryn Potter
Best Integrated Writing
This argumentative essay deals with a well-known topic in the field of linguistics, methodology and education. The topic, however, has not been exhausted, so Camryn Potter’s reflections insert her in a generation of new advocates of second language teaching. In detailed progression and with a clear style, Potter conveys her vision: it is true that when learning a second language, a person acquires skills beneficial for the brain and the holistic human condition. Although passionate about the topic, Potter does not jump to conclusions. On the contrary, she explores different pros and cons. An educator at heart, she invites ...
Cuban Vintage Car Culture, 2018 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Cuban Vintage Car Culture, Zachary H. White
Beyond: Undergraduate Research Journal
The purpose of this research was to investigate the culture surrounding the vintage American cars found in Cuba. Through preliminary research, the researcher determined Cubans are continuing to use these cars as a means of transportation as well as a source of income. They have kept the cars maintained by recycling parts from other cars, tractors, and boats, as well as buying new parts from the black market. Once they have been repaired, many owners around major cities use them as taxis. This is so that the owners can afford to maintain them as well as provide additional income for ...
Modeling Sound In Ancient Maya Cities: Moving Towards A Synesthetic Experience Using Gis & 3d Simulation, 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Modeling Sound In Ancient Maya Cities: Moving Towards A Synesthetic Experience Using Gis & 3d Simulation, Graham Goodwin
Anthropology Department Theses and Dissertations
Digital technologies enable modeling of the potential role of sound in past environments. While digital approaches have limitations in objectively rendering reality, they provide an expanded platform that potentially increases our understanding of experience in the past and enhances the investigation of ancient landscapes. Digital technologies enable new experiences in ways that are multi-sensual and move us closer toward reconstructing holistic views of past landscapes. Archaeologists have successfully employed 2D and 3D tools to measure vision and movement within cityscapes. However, built environments are often designed to invoke synesthetic experiences that also include sound and other senses. Geographic Information Systems ...
The Variable Expression Of Transitive Subject And Possesor In Wayuunaki (Guajiro), 2018 Universitiy of New Mexico
The Variable Expression Of Transitive Subject And Possesor In Wayuunaki (Guajiro), Andres M. Sabogal
In Wayuunaiki, verbal affixes cross-reference clausal arguments in various ways. Most notably, there are two ways to express transitive subjects, and two ways to express possessors. Much like voice alternatives, the variable expression of subject and possessor impart different perspectives on a situation type, but unlike traditional voice categories, syntactic valence remains equal. This dissertation characterizes these constructions with a specific question in mind: what do these two cross-referencing alternations communicate and what influences their usage? To answer these questions, I consider the linguistic properties observed in the usage of these constructions in narratives (Jusayú 1986, 1994), and informal conversations ...

The Health Of Migrant Farmworkers In The Pacific Northwest: Access, Quality, And Health Disparities, 2018 University of Washington Tacoma
The Health Of Migrant Farmworkers In The Pacific Northwest: Access, Quality, And Health Disparities, Marleny Silva
Global Honors Theses
The health and well-being of migrant farmworkers have been neglected in the U.S. despite the prevalent reliance on undocumented foreign labor to fill the needs of the agricultural industry. In 1942, the U.S. signed a bilateral agreement with Mexico which allowed the recruitment of Mexican workers for temporary work in U.S. fields until the end of the program in 1964. This program contributed to the increase of Mexican migration even after its termination and reaffirmed our nation’s dependence on migrant farm workers, both documented and undocumented. Due to their undocumented status, undocumented migrant farmworkers experience neglect ...
La Reina De Los Carteles: Los Beneficios Y Los Peligros, 2018 Union College
La Reina De Los Carteles: Los Beneficios Y Los Peligros, Emily Monac
This paper examines the experiences of women in real life and television programs involved with drug cartels in Mexico. For women, life centered on narcotic trade in Mexico may be framed by both terror and abuse. However, there also exists a certain power dynamic achieved by women in positions of power in cartels. These real life women are known as “Las Flacas,” a self-given label that affirms both their reclamation of sexuality and also their acquiescing to a patriarchal society. Narcofiction exists as a new art form of processing and reacting to a life heavily influenced by drug trade in ...
La Economía De La Violencia: La Ciudad Juárez Y El Mercado Libre De La Muerte, 2018 Union College
La Economía De La Violencia: La Ciudad Juárez Y El Mercado Libre De La Muerte, Kritika Amanjee
This thesis explores the utilization of human life to further the parallel economies of manufacture and narco-trafficking in Mexico. It begins by recalling the impacts of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Mexico’s local economies. Shifts in economic dynamics that resulted from NAFTA internally displaced thousands of impoverished Mexicans, ultimately pushing them into the growing economies of manufacture and narco-trafficking. The manufacture industry and its effects on the common people are examined with a specific focus on Ciudad Juárez, a border city in the state of Chihuahua. The growth of maquiladoras attracted thousands of young women to ...
Santería In A Globalized World: A Study In Afro-Cuban Folkloric Music, 2018 Lawrence University
Santería In A Globalized World: A Study In Afro-Cuban Folkloric Music, Nathan Montgomery
Lawrence University Honors Projects
The Yoruban people of modern-day Nigeria worship many deities called orichas by means of singing, drumming, and dancing. Their aurally preserved artistic traditions are intrinsically connected to both religious ceremony and everyday life. These forms of worship traveled to the Americas during the colonial era through the brutal transatlantic slave trade and continued to evolve beneath racist societal hierarchies implemented by western European nations. Despite severe oppression, Yoruban slaves in Cuba were able to disguise orichas behind Catholic saints so that they could still actively worship in public. This initial guise led to a synthesis of religious practice, language, and ...
Coarticulation In Two Fricative-Vowel Sequences Of Latin American Spanish, 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois
Coarticulation In Two Fricative-Vowel Sequences Of Latin American Spanish, Jeff Renaud
Celebration of Learning
Dialectal surveys of Latin American Spanish (Perissinotto 1975, Resnick 1975) describe three main possible pronunciations for fu (fuego 'fire') and fo (foco 'focus') sequences: faithful [f], velarized [x], and bilabialized [ɸ], in order of frequency. While the velar realization has received phonetic and theoretical consideration (Lipski 1995, Mazzaro 2011), little is understood about the voiceless bilabial fricative [ɸ] in Spanish. This paper describes a three-part production study to uniformly account for the unfaithful velar and bilabial realizations.
Mazzaro (2011) explains the velar [x] variant by arguing that, given the acoustic similarity of, e.g., [fu]/[xu], listeners misperceive a speaker ...
Fear And Loathing On The Green Hills Of Africa, 2018 University of New Orleans
Fear And Loathing On The Green Hills Of Africa, Donald Miller
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
The purpose of this article is to establish a textual parallel between Hunter S. Thompson`s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Ernest Hemingway`s Green Hills of Africa. Thompson took Hemingway’s novel as a challenge to write under extreme duress. Thompson twisted many passages from Green Hills to fit his own text. He used bitter irony to translate Hemingway`s text into his own “Gonzo” reportage.
Thompson`s friend and traveling companion, Oscar Z. Acosta, is used as an example of how Thompson rewrote Hemingway. Acosta`s Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo is referenced as the nexus ...
La Guerra De 1898 O La Historia De Una (Incómoda) Foto De Familia, 2018 Southern Methodist University
La Guerra De 1898 O La Historia De Una (Incómoda) Foto De Familia, Francisco Moran
La guerra de 1898 cuenta ya con una abundante bibliografía. Sus ángulos más importantes, tales como la cuestión racial, la de género y la política imperialista de los Estados Unidos, y la de los símbolos, entre otras, han sido objeto de discusión. Partiendo precisamente de la noción del 98 como «guerra simbólica», propuesta por Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, en este artículo argumento que la tesis de este autor permite plantear una lectura del 98 más abarcadora de cualquiera de las que se han hecho hasta ahora; una que además de incluir los contendientes más discutidos – España, Cuba, Estados Unidos – dé cabida ...
Escribir La Pesadilla: Dávila Y Tario, Entre Lo Fantástico Y El Terror. Dos Ejemplos En La Literatura Mexicana Del Medio Siglo, 2018 Universidad de Salamanca, Spain
Escribir La Pesadilla: Dávila Y Tario, Entre Lo Fantástico Y El Terror. Dos Ejemplos En La Literatura Mexicana Del Medio Siglo, Adriana Álvarez Rivera
Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos
En este trabajo se analizan dos cuentos de escritores mexicanos cuya obra, hasta hace relativamente poco, fue considerada marginal: “El jardín de las tumbas” de Amparo Dávila y “La noche de los cincuenta libros” de Francisco Tario. Como sustento teórico se retoman, en especial, las posturas de David Roas y Tzvetan Todorov, defensor y detractor respectivamente de la idea del miedo como esencial a lo fantástico. El análisis más concreto de los textos se basa en conceptos de narratología -fundamentalmente la focalización y la voz narrativa- y teoría de la recepción -en particular el horizonte de expectativas- para poner en ...
Consumption And Education In Recent Uruguayan Cinema: Between Sobriety, Joy, And Excess, 2018 Metropolitan State University of Denver
Consumption And Education In Recent Uruguayan Cinema: Between Sobriety, Joy, And Excess, Cristina Miguez
Altering our physical and mental states through practices of consumption has formed a basis of our daily habits for hundreds of years. By the eighteenth century, consumption of stimulants such as alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea, sugar, opiates, cannabis, coca, and other substances was widespread and democratized. Drug consumption was mirrored by a new universality of leisure reading of travel accounts and maps, sentimental novels, and pornographic works. Psychotropic mechanisms transformed not only habits and economies, but also affected the fantasies of millions of people, and changed existing ecosystems over the last few centuries. (Baghdiantz 2015; Baumann 2007; Courtwright 2001; Herlinghaus ...

Undocumented Queer Latinx Students: Testimonio Of Survival, 2018 San Jose State University
Undocumented Queer Latinx Students: Testimonio Of Survival, Maria E. Fernández
McNair Research Journal SJSU
Recent U.S. political turmoil has deliberately embedded fear into many marginalized and underrepresented people living in the U.S. The fact that the United States was founded on the demanding work of diverse populations of immigrants is vitally important to how immigrants are being treated today. In 2016, the U.S. presidential electoral win for Donald Trump left many marginalized communities—including Undocumented Queer Latinx students—fearful of how his administration would affect their communities. This paper reviews literatures on Queer immigration history, the homophobic and transphobic psychological history behind legal immigration barriers, and the recent mobilization to include ...

El Mundo Anti-Negro Y Los Hip-Hop Blues: Los Rakas Y J-Cole, 2018 University of Connecticut - Storrs
El Mundo Anti-Negro Y Los Hip-Hop Blues: Los Rakas Y J-Cole, Josué R. López
The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal
Tenemos que contender con el mundo anti-negro. Los Rakas, un dúo artístico panameño-estadounidense, y J-Cole, un artista afro-estadounidense, utilizan al hip-hop como una avenida para comunicar sus ansiedades, sufrimientos y fortalecerse en la lucha infinita al ser el Otro Oscuro. Los blues forman parte de como uno lidia con la permanencia del racismo y nuestra existencia en un mundo anti-negro. A través de Frantz Fanon, Derrick Bell y Lewis Gordon, argumento que el estilo musical de J-Cole y Los Rakas constituye una forma de los hip-hop blues. Examino las canciones “Sueño Americano” y “Neighbors” para analizar cómo los artistas entienden ...
