A Longitudinal Study On Language Learning Vocabulary In L2 Spanish, 2018 Iowa State University
A Longitudinal Study On Language Learning Vocabulary In L2 Spanish, Cristina Pardo-Ballester
World Languages and Cultures Conference Papers, Posters and Proceedings
Some learners perform better on listening tests that include visual input instead of audio only (Wagner, 2008) while others have found no difference in the performance of participants in the two test formats (Batty, 2015). These mixed results make it necessary to examine the role of using audio and video in listening comprehension (LC). This study examines the effect of input modality on the learning of new vocabulary with intermediate L2 learners. The study gave four versions of the same text: a baseline in audio format, a baseline in video format, a redundancy-enhanced version in audio format and a redundancy-enhanced ...
Communicative Equality: Needs Assessment Of Sign Language Interpreters In South Dakota, 2018 Western Oregon University
Communicative Equality: Needs Assessment Of Sign Language Interpreters In South Dakota, Cyndi Fisher
Master's of Arts in Interpreting Studies (MAIS) Theses
Data compiled for this research will be used as a pilot study to support further research needed to consider an interpreter education program in West River region of South Dakota. Surveys were distributed to businesses, individuals in the Deaf community, and interpreters who are registered in the state of South Dakota. Face-to-face interviews were scheduled with two owners of two interpreting agencies that schedule interpreter requests throughout South Dakota. Data collection hinted at the need for qualified interpreters in the state, with a more enhanced focus on the western region of the state. Survey results suggest that interpreters are needed ...
Called To Service And Finding A Purpose: A Mixed-Method Study Of Signed Language Interpreters Volunteering In Church And Religious Settings, Jennifer Kinnamon
Master's of Arts in Interpreting Studies (MAIS) Theses
Many non-professional interpreters volunteer their services in church and religious settings to give Deaf congregants access to the message. Church interpreting has been a unique way many interpreters have gained interest into the profession and entered the interpreting field. Although they continue to volunteer in religious settings on a regular basis out of a sense of calling and act of service (Berg, Grant, & Johnson, 2010; Hokkanen, 2014), according to the literature, interpreters in their first 10 years of work choose benevolence as their number one value for entering the interpreting field (Ramirez-Loudenback, 2015). Often that desire to help and provide a service ...
New Identities New Voices: Introducing The Choreographer-Notator, 2018 Moorpark College
New Identities New Voices: Introducing The Choreographer-Notator, Beth Megill
Journal of Movement Arts Literacy
In this practitioner’s perspective paper, the author discusses an experience in which she notated a piece of her choreography using a combination of Labanotation and Motif Notation with the intent of setting the repertory from the score on a group of contemporary dancers, who had never read notation before. She explains her goals as a choreographer and notator proposing a fused creative identity, the Choreographer-Notator. This paper describes how the process of drafting the score and then teaching from the score provided new insights into her work and her identity as a dance artist. The paper concludes with the ...
Voices Of Notators: Approaches To Writing A Score--Special Issue, 2018 Loyola Marymount University
Voices Of Notators: Approaches To Writing A Score--Special Issue, Teresa L. Heiland
Journal of Movement Arts Literacy
In this special issue of Voices of Notators: Approaches to Writing a Score, eight authors share their unique process of creating and implementing their approach to notating movement, and they describe how that process transforms them as researchers, analysts, dancers, choreographers, communicators, and teachers. These researchers discuss the need to capture, to form, to generate, and to communicate ideas using a written form of dance notation so that some past, present, or future experience can be better understood, directed, informed, and shared. They are organized roughly into themes motivated by relationships between them and their methodological similarities and differences. The ...
A Model Of The Process African American Adolescents Use To Integrate Their Bilingual Identity With Their Overall Identity In A Foreign Language Immersion Environment: A Grounded Theory Study, 2018 Liberty University
A Model Of The Process African American Adolescents Use To Integrate Their Bilingual Identity With Their Overall Identity In A Foreign Language Immersion Environment: A Grounded Theory Study, Kim Romero
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
The purpose of this grounded theory study was to develop a model that illustrates how African American adolescents in a foreign language immersion environment integrate their bilingual identity with their overall identity. For this study, bilingualism is defined as the ability to use two languages for academic and/or business purposes. I used multiple interviews, focus groups, questionnaires, and journals to collect data. The most important part of the identity integration process for African American adolescents in a foreign language immersion environment is choice. The loss of choice caused conflicts during the identity negotiation process. The participants perceived their bilingual ...
The Lebanese Diaspora: An Exploration Of Assimilation And Success In The United States, 2018 University of San Diego
The Lebanese Diaspora: An Exploration Of Assimilation And Success In The United States, Elissa Haddad
Starting in the mid-nineteenth century, people from Lebanon began moving in large numbers to North and South America, Africa and Northern Europe. Today, the Lebanese diaspora is estimated to be around 14 million people. Many Lebanese entrepreneurs worldwide have proven to be very successful in a variety of contexts. However, while there is evidence suggesting that the Lebanese diaspora has been among the most successful around the world, the reasons for this success have not yet been systematically studied. For this reason, there is a pressing need for studies that identify and examine the individual and cultural factors that may ...
Indigenous Language Revival: The Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project As A Case Study In Indigenous Identity, Representation, And Place-Based Knowledge, Kyle Woodward
James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal (JMURJ)
Indigenous societies face issues related to cultural preservation, representation, and declining autonomy in resource and land management. For most indigenous groups, native languages serve as the medium through which culturally unique identities are expressed, and allow a highly contextualized environmental knowledge base to be passed down intergenerationally. Native language preservation therefore facilitates the overall survivability of an indigenous group’s culture, traditions, and collective knowledge. Unfortunately, many indigenous languages today are in danger of extinction or have already been lost. The Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project serves as a prominent example of native language revival in the United States. Wampanoag progress ...
“At War For Oppa And Identity”: Competitive Performativity Among Korean-Pop Fandoms, 2018 The University of San Francisco
“At War For Oppa And Identity”: Competitive Performativity Among Korean-Pop Fandoms, Brittany Tinaliga
Master's Projects and Capstones
Literature surrounding K-Pop is mostly focused on the reactionary, participatory, promotional, consumer and identity-forming roles of the Korean-Pop fandom. However, this research sheds a light on the dark side of the K-Pop fandom and the structures that sustain it: namely toxic practices and values. The study determines what practices and beliefs are at the core of competitive performativity and subsequently toxic fan conduct among international Korean-Pop fans and whether fans engage in reflexivity regarding these practices. To address this gap, this study incorporates a multi-methods approach, including CDA analysis, online corpus analysis, qualitative and quantitative data. The results reveal that ...
Storytelling Through Movement: An Analysis Of The Connections Between Dance & Literature, 2018 East Tennessee State University
Storytelling Through Movement: An Analysis Of The Connections Between Dance & Literature, Zoe Hester
Undergraduate Honors Theses
Movement and storytelling are the links between past and present; both dance and literature have the same artistic and primal origins. We began to dance to express and communicate, to worship and feel. We tell stories for the same reasons: to learn from the past and to be able to communicate in the present.
This work explores the many connections between literature and dance through examinations of six dance forms: Native American, Bharatanatyam, West African, Ballet, Modern, and Post-Modern dance.
Diary Of A Runagate, 2018 Dominican University of California
Diary Of A Runagate, David Jon Phillips
Master's Theses and Capstone Projects
Ztratil sem kolíček. The linchpin is lost, and our young hero’s quest for a new one is highlighted by his faith, awareness of his natural surroundings, and an awakening desire to make sense of life and love. Set in Moravia during the early twentieth century’s technological, political and cultural upheaval, the quest takes him away from his family and the tenant farm. Becoming a runagate is Jano’s destiny; he leaves with the gypsy girl Zefka to begin a new life and family.
The translation finds unexpected discoveries in the poet’s language. Following a dramaturgical thread, the ...
Understanding Deaf Culture, 2018 University of Rhode Island
Understanding Deaf Culture, Meghan Flanagan
Senior Honors Projects
Culture defines people and gives them a sense of identity. It provides a community for individuals with similar beliefs and values to communicate with one another using a shared language. Deaf Culture encompasses these principles, but it is unique in that it has it’s own fully developed language known as American Sign Language (ASL). ASL is a verbal language that incorporates all of the linguistic components of a spoken language such as syntax, idioms, and dialect variation. It allows the deaf community to have a distinct sense of humor along with their own traditions, literature, and theater. All of ...
A Song Of Arms And Of The Woman: Confronting Cleopatra In The Augustan Era Through The Carmen De Bello Actiaco, 2018 College of William and Mary
A Song Of Arms And Of The Woman: Confronting Cleopatra In The Augustan Era Through The Carmen De Bello Actiaco, Rachel Dubit
Undergraduate Honors Theses
This project consists of a translation and literary analysis of the Carmen de Bello Actiaco, a fragmentary Latin epic from the Villa dei Papiri at Herculaneum. The epic describes the events surrounding the battle of Actium and Octavian's conquest of Egypt. This analysis explores the importance of the Carmen as a product of a distinctly Augustan ideology, regardless of the exact date of its writing. The first chapter addresses the character of Cleopatra VII and how her portrayal is indicative of the contemporary Roman imperialistic conceptualization of Egypt and other foreign territories. The second chapter explores the theme of ...

El Teatro Afro-Hispano Y La Emergencia De Una Ciudadanía Global: Diálogos Del Sur En Espacios Migratorios, Elisa G. Rizo
World Languages and Cultures Publications
Al hablar de espacios migratorios hay que comenzar por reconocer que la migración internacional no es un tema nuevo sino uno muy antiguo y diverso. Como nos recuerda Boaventura de Sousa Santos, a lo largo de la historia y sobre todo a partir del siglo XX, han existido grandes flujos transnacionales de personas por turismo, negocios, estudios, trabajos especializados, política, catástrofes, guerras, condiciones económicas, etc. A su vez, las circulaciones de un país a otro han dependido de las relaciones entre las naciones de origen y las naciones receptoras, así como de dinámicas de pertenencia y acceso a oportunidades dentro ...

I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder
I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, Yasmin Mazloom
Art Practices MFA Theses
The life of immigrants is discussed in two chapters: living in the country of origin and living abroad. The space that exists in between these two countries and places, is diminished and not discussed because it is not physical but more of a mental space that is rarely recognized unless it is experienced firsthand. Even though only a minority of people will understand this liminal space, it is important to be aware of its existence. Those who reside in this space need to recognize they are not alone, even if their liminal space is different from others, so that they ...

LSU Master's Theses
This thesis studies Iranian student immigrants in the United States in the special political tensions between the two countries from 2000 until present. This research provides a holistic view of understanding the new identity which Iranian students have reconstructed at the intersection of Iranian culture and U.S. culture through their past identity in confronting a new situation. It describes how Iranian students use individual, intellectual, and social resources to deal with the ignorance was that imposed on them when the governments of the two countries began to fight each other to achieve more political power. Data is collected from ...
