Texto, Contexto Y Cultura En Los Comentarios Sobre Teología De La Liberación, Sara Heist 2017 Liberty University

Texto, Contexto Y Cultura En Los Comentarios Sobre Teología De La Liberación, Sara Heist

Senior Honors Theses

The critical dialogue sparked by Latin American liberation theology in the 1970s has involved diverse authors from various creeds and cultures. Although dozens of critics have offered an analysis of both Liberation Theology and its foundational text, Gustavo Gutiérrez’s A Theology of Liberation, the discussion has not reached consensus. Some critics, such as Ray Hundley, Ronald Nash, C. F. H. Henry, Harold O. J. Brown and Michael Novak, dismiss the movement as a hopeless entanglement of social goodwill, economic ignorance, and insidious Marxist philosophy. Others, among them the Catholic Magisterium, Michael Löwy, Juan Carlos Scannone, and João B. Chaves ...


English As A Global Commodity, Katarina Bouton 2017 Liberty University

English As A Global Commodity, Katarina Bouton

Senior Honors Theses

English is currently the language of diplomacy, higher education, business, science, the internet, and more. In order to understand what this means for the present state of English and its future, one must begin by looking at this language’s diachronic journey, followed by a synchronic picture of English today. In addition to statistics on English, this analysis will consider potential language competitors of Chinese, Arabic, Spanish, and Hindi, among others, in displacing the English language. Compared to these prospective challengers, English has broad roots in world history, lending to its depth and growing breadth; however, not only do the ...

El Rock En Nicaragua: Un Discurso De Resistencia Contra La Neoliberalización O Una Re-Definición De La Tradición., Martina Barinova 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

El Rock En Nicaragua: Un Discurso De Resistencia Contra La Neoliberalización O Una Re-Definición De La Tradición., Martina Barinova

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Abstract in English

This work, which parts from the premise that music is a medium of communication with the potential to transform and create identities, explores rock music in Nicaragua since its beginning until the present. Nicaraguan rock music is born in a sociopolitical context of extreme economic instability and during a crisis of values in the last decade of the 20th century, with the end of the Sandinista Revolution and the establishment of neoliberal government. The young cultural movement, and rock in particular, constructs a discourse dissident from the patriarchal and capitalist hegemony and interrogates the social reality ...


La Magie Comme Paradoxe Dans Moi, Tituba, Sorcière Noire De Salem, Jamie Gaffin 2017 Wright State University - Main Campus

La Magie Comme Paradoxe Dans Moi, Tituba, Sorcière Noire De Salem, Jamie Gaffin

The University Honors Program

Le roman de Maryse Condé Moi Tituba, Sorcière Noire de Salem est une oeuvre de fiction historique qui invente une adaptation de la vie de Tituba Indien, une esclave accusée de sortilèges pendant les procès des sorcières de Salem. Les critiques littéraires discutent souvent du roman dans les termes du criticisme postcolonial et féministe. Tituba Indien est, comme le titre suggère, une sorcière, compétente dans les pouvoirs surnaturels lui communiqués par Man Yaya. Même-si Tituba est littéralement sorcière, les capacités magiques de Tituba fonctionnent aussi au niveau symbolique. L'usage de la magie symbolise la façon de laquelle son oppression ...


Making The Case For Exploratory World Language Instruction In Catholic Elementary Schools Through University Partnerships, Brigid M. Burke, Eric D. Howard 2017 Bowling Green State University - Main Campus

Making The Case For Exploratory World Language Instruction In Catholic Elementary Schools Through University Partnerships, Brigid M. Burke, Eric D. Howard

Journal of Catholic Education

As a result of a university partnership, elementary students at two midwest Catholic elementary schools have been provided with exploratory world language instruction (FLEX) from pre-service teachers. To investigate students’ attitudes and learning of Spanish, researchers interviewed second and fourth graders. The students’ parents and pre-service teachers answered open-ended questionnaires. The research questions for this qualitative study were: 1) How does exploratory world language instruction (FLEX) affect children’s attitudes about learning world languages and cultures? 2) How does exploratory world language instruction (FLEX) affect children’s learning of a world language? The results showed that students possessed positive attitudes ...

Lejos de aquí de Roberto Cossa y Mauricio Kartun: familia, absurdo y temporalidad en una re-escrituradel grotesco criollo

Mariana Pensa

UCLA Extension

En este trabajo realizamos un acercamiento a la obra teatral Lejos de aquí (1993) escrita en colaboración por los dramaturgos argentinos Roberto Cossa y Mauricio Kartun. A través de nuestro análisis observamoscomo los elementos de la tradición del “grotesco criollo” de principiosdel siglo XX se han ido desarrollando y re-formulando hacia finesdel mismo siglo en lo que se ha dado en llamar el “neo-grotesco criollo”. Principalmente nos referimos a los cambios y permanencias que se producen por el ...

Mario Rufino Méndez Y La Caricatura Política En Nuestra Raza: Estudio Testimonial De Una Rica Producción Cultural De Los Afro-Uruguayos (1933-1948), María Cristina Burgueño

María Cristina Burgueño

This work is a one volume published by the National Library of Uruguay with a prologue by Dr. George Reid Andrews. It provides an in depth analysis of the corpus of caricatures made by Mario R. Mendez, an afro-Uruguayan artist, for the magazine “Our Race” during its second period 1933-1948. These editorial caricatures made a strong statement against the Fascism in Europe and the League of Nations’ attitude towards the invasion of Ethiopia ordered by Benito Mussolini. They also satirized the political and social reality in Uruguay. Both, the caricatures and the magazine provide a testimony of an extensive cultural ...

Culturally And Linguistically Humble: A Preparation For Living Abroad, Diana Gonzalez 2017 Northwestern College - Orange City

Culturally And Linguistically Humble: A Preparation For Living Abroad, Diana Gonzalez

Northwestern Review

Presented in 2016 at Baekseok University in Cheonan City, South Korea at the 8th international conference of the International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE), this paper lays out the rationale for the approach taken in Northwestern College’s required preparations for students studying abroad. Elements in the preparation include getting students to identify influences on them of their home culture; to talk about their motivations and goals for studying abroad; to engage with Duane Elmer’s Cross-Cultural Connections and David Smith’s Learning from the Stranger; and perhaps most importantly, to engage with E. Hockett ...


Phonetic And Phonological Research Sharing Methods, Cory C. Coogan 2017 Liberty University

Phonetic And Phonological Research Sharing Methods, Cory C. Coogan

The Kabod

This paper reviews the materials linguists use to compile and share research in the linguistic sub-fields of phonetics and phonology. It summarizes the content and purpose of major books, journal publications, and databases within these two fields, especially those with broad selections of data that have been collected for cross-linguistic study and research reference. This paper discusses the various uses of these materials and then analyzes how well equipped the linguistic research community is for compiling and sharing comprehensive-oriented language data.
