A Portfolio Of Lesson Plans For A High School Spanish Classroom With Critical Reflection, Jasmyn Chacko

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

This Capstone projects features a portfolio of lesson plans along with assessments of these lesson plans, written by a site supervisor, and journal entries, written personally after teaching the lesson in the classroom. After reviewing and analyzing all of these documents, general reflections were written to show the changes I made over time and to consider what future improvements I commit to make. These general reflections will be supplemented with current research in the field of second language pedagogy and the critique written by my site supervisor. Overall, the goal of this Capstone project is to produce useful materials in ...


Colombian Readings Of Paradise Lost: Gabriel García Márquez’S Literary Conversation With John Milton, Daniela M. Maestre, Angelica Duran 2017 University of Los Andes, Colombia

Colombian Readings Of Paradise Lost: Gabriel García Márquez’S Literary Conversation With John Milton, Daniela M. Maestre, Angelica Duran

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Englishman John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost has twenty European Spanish translations. Despite the high number of translations, three Latin American writers, one Mexican and two Colombians published three more versions. Our project seeks to discover what motivated the Colombian translators to publish more versions of Paradise Lost, as part of the influence of Milton’s works in Colombian literature in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. There is little information about Colombian readings of this epic poem: we do not yet know how Colombians read the epic poem and why. To get a better sense of Colombian reception of ...


Precisiones Sobre La Identidad Dialectal De Las Islas Del Caribe Hispánico, Orlando Alba 2017 Brigham Young University - Provo

Precisiones Sobre La Identidad Dialectal De Las Islas Del Caribe Hispánico, Orlando Alba

All Faculty Publications

El objetivo de esta presentación consiste en mostrar que, a pesar de la creencia extendida sobre la homogeneidad lingüística antillana, no existe un solo español del Caribe. Se demuestra que Cuba, Puerto Rico y la República Dominicana mantienen su particular identidad dialectal. Se llega a esta conclusión, tanto desde la perspectiva subjetiva de la percepción que tienen los antillanos de su modo de hablar, como por medio del análisis de una serie de fenómenos fonéticos, sintácticos y léxicos.


Investigating Female Indigenous Leadership In Latin America, Roseangela G. Hartford 2017 Ursinus College

Investigating Female Indigenous Leadership In Latin America, Roseangela G. Hartford

Spanish Summer Fellows

This project investigates gender constructs and the complex assigned gender roles in settings of female indigenous leadership in Latin America. It examines two distinct indigenous communities, including the BriBri society in Yorkín, Costa Rica and the Maya peoples in Santa Anita, Guatemala that demonstrate the circumstantial spectrum in which women can obtain leadership roles and what actors directly influence this process. Each case study explores the fluidity of gender identities in which concepts of masculinity often guide female empowerment and liberation. With Costa Rica abolishing their military in 1948 and Guatemala experiencing a 36-year civil war (1960-1996) and a major ...


Critical Ethics: Witnessing Otherness In La Última Niebla, Christine Garst-Santos 2017 South Dakota State University

Critical Ethics: Witnessing Otherness In La Última Niebla, Christine Garst-Santos

Christine Garst-Santos

La última niebla [The Final Mist] (1935) by María Luisa Bombal presents a female protagonist traumatized by the restrictive gender norms of 1930s Argentina. One would expect that the protagonist’s increasing alienation throughout the novel and her ultimate surrender to an identity that she loathes would generate a compassionate response from readers. However, the text has generated a significant body of notably unsympathetic—and even censorious—criticism from scholars. In an effort to analyze why Bombal’s novel and the protagonist’s performance have been problematic for critics, I turn from literary theory to philosophy. By combining Richard Rorty ...


(De)Constructing And (Re)Negotiating Identities: (Re)Dressing For Carnival In Fernando Trueba's "Belle Époque" (1992), Chad M. Gasta 2017 Iowa State University

(De)Constructing And (Re)Negotiating Identities: (Re)Dressing For Carnival In Fernando Trueba's "Belle Époque" (1992), Chad M. Gasta

Chad M. Gasta

The function and centrality of the carnival scene in Fernando Trueba's Oscar-winning film Belle Epoque (1992) leads to a topsy-turvy, upside-down world in which traditional political, religious and social institutions are systematically subverted. In simple terms, the costumes and masks customarily associated with carnival merely provide a means for participants to hide their true identities and become something they are not. In more complex terms, the very nature of carnival establishes a displaced time in which hierarchies are undermined and the possible is juxtaposed with the improbable. As the film's main characters "re-dress" for carnival, a new atmosphere ...


"Señora, Donde Hay Música No Puede Haber Cosa Mala": Music, Poetry, And Orality In Don Quijote, Chad M. Gasta 2017 Iowa State University

"Señora, Donde Hay Música No Puede Haber Cosa Mala": Music, Poetry, And Orality In Don Quijote, Chad M. Gasta

Chad M. Gasta

In Cervantes's Spain, music was considered one of the foremost arts, and cultural elites aspired to learn to sing different genres and to play fashionable instruments. Music's special status was most visible at the Universities of Salamanca and Alcalá, both having chairs of music charged with the instruction of trendy polyphonic styles. However, Miguel de Cervantes never attended these universities and he was not a professionally trained musician. Yet, throughout Don Quijote he includes a considerable number and variety of lyrical poems set to an abundance and diversity of period instruments. Entire episodes in the novel turn upon ...

Marcelle Capy And The Pacifist Female Voices Amidst The Conflict, Cecilia Benaglia 2017 Johns Hopkins University

Marcelle Capy And The Pacifist Female Voices Amidst The Conflict, Cecilia Benaglia

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

This article analyses the writings of French writer and journalist Marcelle Capy (1891–1962), who held an uncommon position in the French intellectual field throughout the First World War. Going against the mainstream French feminist groups, who all prioritized loyalty to the fatherland over pacifism, Capy remained faithful to her socialist and anti-war creed. Although little known to the larger French public, Capy’s double marginality as a woman and as a pacifist makes her work a singular testimony of the war years as well as a significant example of the rejection of the national climate and Union sacrée’s ...

From The National Context To Its Margins: When The World Used Literature To Respond To The Great War, Toby Garfitt, Nicolas Bianchi 2017 Magdalen College, Oxford

From The National Context To Its Margins: When The World Used Literature To Respond To The Great War, Toby Garfitt, Nicolas Bianchi

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

By shedding light on some original responses to the Great War that are today hardly known, and by asking the same questions of many works written in contexts which were radically different, this STTCL special issue advocates for a genuinely comparative approach to this literature. Born in a context of nationalist withdrawal, these cultural objects also had a paradoxically wide circulation (due to early translations, commentaries, literary reactions, and so on), which is why study of these apparently isolated writers is so valuable.

A Discordant Voice From The Trenches: Juan José De Soiza Reilly’S War Chronicles, María Inés Tato 2017 CONICET - Universidad de Buenos Aires. Instituto Ravignani (IHAYA), GEHiGue

A Discordant Voice From The Trenches: Juan José De Soiza Reilly’S War Chronicles, María Inés Tato

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The First World War represented a deep crisis of the European civilization that called into question the values and certitudes of the Belle Époque society. Trenches became the symbol of the dehumanization produced by a conflict that marked a watershed in modern history. As a global conflict, its impact was felt beyond the confines of Europe, involving even neutral countries, puzzled by that unexpected spectacle of violence.

In this new scenery, war correspondents were first-hand witnesses of the horrors of the battlefields, transmitted through their journalistic contributions to a public opinion profoundly shaken by this new kind of warfare. Non-European ...
