Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés

Books/Book Chapters

En este artículo se analiza cómo en El bandido doblemente armado de Soledad Puétolas se hace un tributo a El largo adiós de Raymond Chandler.

Marlowe aparecía en El largo adiós como el verdadero protagonista que nos muestra su visión de la realidad más que nunca, permitiéndonos un mayor conocimiento de su interior. Del mismo modo, el narrador de El bandido doblemente armado, consigue una identidad propia al hacer que los encuentros y desencuetros con los otros personajes trasciendan.

El segundo personaje principal en las dos novelas tiene el mismo nombre, Terry Lennox. Si la similitud de los narradores es ...


"Unos Seres Nacen Para Vivir": Un Análisis Psicosocial De Nada, Nathan Douglas 2015 Illinois Wesleyan University

"Unos Seres Nacen Para Vivir": Un Análisis Psicosocial De Nada, Nathan Douglas

Honors Projects

Winner of the first Premio Nadal in 1945, Nada, the first published work of then-unknown author Carmen Laforet, has remained a captivating, yet elusive work of Spanish literature. Since its very publication, readers, critics, and even censors have debated the true emancipatory message (or lack there of) within the pseudo-autobiographical, confessional work. While the majority of critics maintain the novel’s characterization as a feminist, female bildungsroman, dissenters cite traces of palimpsestic ennui mediated by the novel’s complex narrative schema as reason to believe otherwise. This critical reading of Nada seeks to shed new light on these debates through ...


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 ...

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal

Translation specialists Esther Allen, Mary Ann Caws, Peter Constantine, Edith Grossman, Nancy Kline, Burton Pike, Damion Searls, Karen Van Dyck and Alyson Waters respond to the TQC question:

“Lost in translation”; “Found in translation”: Are these just useless commonplaces or are they indicative of something relevant to your own practice?


A Corpus For Investigating English-Language Learners' Dialog Behaviors, Nigel Ward, Paola Gallardo 2015 University of Texas at El Paso

A Corpus For Investigating English-Language Learners' Dialog Behaviors, Nigel Ward, Paola Gallardo

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

We are interested in developing methods for the semi-automatic discovery of prosodic patterns in dialog and how they differ between languages and among populations. We are starting by examining how the prosody of Spanish-native learners of English differs from that of native speakers. To support this work, we have collected a new corpus of conversations among college students. This includes dialogs between a nonnative speaker of English and a native, dialogs between native speakers of English, and Spanish conversations.


Reseña De Pagafantas, Una Comedia De Borja Cobeaga, Naroa Puente-Ortiz 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Reseña De Pagafantas, Una Comedia De Borja Cobeaga, Naroa Puente-Ortiz

Spanish Language and Literature

La enseñanza de una lengua extranjera a través de realia no es nada nuevo. Han sido muchos los defensores de esta práctica, al igual que no han sido pocos tampoco los detractores de la misma. No es la intención de este documento entrar en dicha discusión, puesto que daremos por hecho, sin explayarnos mucho en el porqué, que, efectivamente, son muchos los beneficios que los estudiantes adquieren mediante la utilización de elementos de uso cotidiano y real a la hora de aprender una lengua. En el presente documento se muestra un ejemplo de reseña de la película Pagafantas (2009) de ...


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 ...


A Importância De Nara Leão Para O Descobrimento De Grandes Compositores: O Desenvolvimento Da Música Popular Brasileira, Renata Godoy Tymoschenko 2015 Brigham Young University - Provo

A Importância De Nara Leão Para O Descobrimento De Grandes Compositores: O Desenvolvimento Da Música Popular Brasileira, Renata Godoy Tymoschenko

All Theses and Dissertations

As mudanças políticas das décadas de 50, 60, 70 e 80 foram pano de fundo para a transformação da música nacional no Brasil e Nara Leão fez parte desse processo. Através de sua carreira artística podemos recontar a história da Música Popular Brasileira (MPB) e descobrir compositores antes não conhecidos e que vieram a luz através de sua performance. Nos anos 50, a Bossa Nova surgiu como uma mistura do samba, que não era aceito pela sociedade moderna por sua associação à pobreza, com o jazz americano, criando uma nova identidade na música. Nara fez parte do grupo que desenvolveu ...

Crisis Masculina En Dos Cuentos De Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Lucía Villarreal

Asimismo analizo cómo el autor usa la memoria, la temática social ...


Teaching Culture Using E-Portfoliosin A 4th-Semester University Spanish Classroom, Ricardo Gustavo Cetz 2015 Brigham Young University - Provo

Teaching Culture Using E-Portfoliosin A 4th-Semester University Spanish Classroom, Ricardo Gustavo Cetz

All Theses and Dissertations

The World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages (ACTFL, 2014) encourage teachers to help their students use the target language to “investigate, explain, and reflect” on the relationships between cultural products, practices, and perspectives. However, while most language instructors agree that language and culture should be connected, many fail to teach culture explicitly because they are so focused on the language components of their courses. Of those who do teach culture explicitly, many either teach only about the cultural products and not the perspectives, or they teach the culture in English because of its complexity.This project explores the use of e-portfolios ...


Bailamos Juntos: Salsa En Los E.E.U.U. Y El Mundo, Betty Tran 2015 University of Southern California

Bailamos Juntos: Salsa En Los E.E.U.U. Y El Mundo, Betty Tran

First-Gen Voices: Creative and Critical Narratives on the First-Generation College Experience

This composition traces the history of Cuban-American cultural identity formation through the lens of music and dance. As the author explains, Cuban immigrants cultivated a rich music and dance culture in New York City by creating a series of Latin and Afro-Cuban music genres and dances that brought diverse groups of people together. As a Vietnamese-American woman, Tran sees several connections between her family’s Vietnamese heritage and the cultural histories of Cubans who came to the United States as refugees seeking asylum from political oppression. As a first-generation college student, Tran believes it is important to share this composition ...

Restoration Or Invention? Archbishop Cisneros And The Mozarabic Rite In Toledo, Susan Boynton 2015 Columbia University

Restoration Or Invention? Archbishop Cisneros And The Mozarabic Rite In Toledo, Susan Boynton

Yale Journal of Music & Religion

As archbishop of Toledo from 1495 to 1517, Francisco Ximénez de Cisneros carried out a multifaceted campaign of support for the Mozarabic rite, which had been preserved in the Middle Ages by Christians living in Toledo under Muslim rule. Although the Roman rite was introduced into the cathedral in 1086, the Toledan Mozarabs had continued to follow their ancient liturgy in their parishes. By the end of the Middle Ages, however, the rite was rarely celebrated. Fearing that it might become obsolete, in 1501 Cisneros endowed a chapel in his cathedral for the Mozarabic rite and established a clergy of ...


Scintillating Scotoma: Migraine, Aura, And Perception In European Literature, 1860-1900, Janice Y. Zehentbauer 2015 The University of Western Ontario

Scintillating Scotoma: Migraine, Aura, And Perception In European Literature, 1860-1900, Janice Y. Zehentbauer

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation focuses upon the ways in which nineteenth-century physicians in the emergent field of neurology conceptualized and catalogued the neurological condition, migraine, and the ways in which European literary texts reimagined and interrogated such medical classifications. A recognized condition for hundreds of years, migraine in the nineteenth century became pathological; migraineurs became a “nervous” modern figure that haunted medicine and literary fiction. Anxieties regarding the construction of fragmented vision, bodies, gender, and consciousness render the migraine figure a relevant symbol for the modern era. The nineteenth-century medical treatises by Jean-Martin Charcot, Edward Liveing, and Hubert Airy reveal that a ...

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 ...


Cutting Off Cardiologists: The Disappeared In “Puro Corazón” By Luisa Valenzuela, Diane E. Marting 2015 University of Mississippi

Cutting Off Cardiologists: The Disappeared In “Puro Corazón” By Luisa Valenzuela, Diane E. Marting

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Luisa Valenzuela’s neglected short story “Puro corazón” ('All Heart') uses surreal imagery and plot to write about the increasing violence in Buenos Aires during the time immediately prior to the Dirty War (la Guerra Sucia). By mimicking a police report, Valenzuela’s story manages to reproduce the experience of censorship and repression that denied the fate of the disappeared. This article shows how the story forges ludic connections between the human body (especially hearts, blood, and cardiologists), the censorship and repression in the early 1970s in Argentina, and the discourse that marked the official response to los desaparecidos, the ...
