Nha Terra, Nha Cretcheu: A Escrita Do E Pelo Amor À Terra Em Manuel Lopes, Susana L. M. Antunes 2021 University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Nha Terra, Nha Cretcheu: A Escrita Do E Pelo Amor À Terra Em Manuel Lopes, Susana L. M. Antunes

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Este ensaio tem como objetivo revisitar dois romances do escritor cabo-verdiano Manuel Lopes (1907-2005), Chuva Braba (1956) e Os Flagelados do Vento Leste (1960), apresentando uma perspetiva revitalizada pela relação amorosa, em silêncio, do ser islenho com a Terra. Esta abordagem, permite ampliar e redimensionar as perspetivas dos romances em questão, atribuindo-lhes uma dimensão global que extravasa a ilha de Santo Antão, Cabo Verde. Neste sentindo, contextualizam-se igualmente os romances numa perspectiva de anticolonialidade na conjuntura socio-histórica dominada pela repressão das políticas impostas pelo Estado Novo português.

This paper aims to reexamine two novels by Cape Verdean writer, Manuel Lopes ...


Anti-Black Agencies: Maria Archer's Colonialist Feminism, Daniel F. Silva 2021 Middlebury College

Anti-Black Agencies: Maria Archer's Colonialist Feminism, Daniel F. Silva

Portuguese Cultural Studies

This essay critically explores the colonialist racial and gender politics of Portuguese writer Maria Archer (1899-1982), specifically in her book Brasil, fronteira da África (1963). Though she is often remembered within the scholarly and canonizing circles of Portuguese literature for her contributions to an emerging national women’s literature in the 20th century, a substantial part of both her literary work and essayistic non-fiction regarding the roles of women in society and cultural production is profoundly informed by what we may consider her colonialist feminism — a vindication and articulation of women’s agency (specifically white metropolitan women) grounded in colonial ...


Literatura Colonial De Autoria Feminina: O Último Batuque, De Maria Do Céu Coelho, Jessica Falconi 2021 CEsA-Centro de Estudos sobre África e Desenvovimento, Universidade de Lisboa

Literatura Colonial De Autoria Feminina: O Último Batuque, De Maria Do Céu Coelho, Jessica Falconi

Portuguese Cultural Studies

O artigo pretende aprofundar e alargar o conhecimento da escrita das mulheres portuguesas sobre temática colonial, proporcionando uma leitura do livro O último batuque (1963) de Maria do Céu Coelho, publicado em Moçambique em princípios da década de 1960. Trata-se de uma obra singular, por focar o tópico eminentemente masculino da caça a partir da perspetiva de uma mulher, e também por ser um livro híbrido que combina a escrita memorialística e breves novelas sobre o universo rural do Moçambique colonial. O artigo discute algumas das caraterísticas essenciais da literatura colonial portuguesa, tal como tem vindo a ser conceitualizada por ...


As Donas Da Zambézia Na Ficção Narrativa: Da Imaginação Colonial À Imaginação Nacional, Fátima Mendonça 2021 Universidad Eduardo Mondlane Clepul-Universidade de Lisboa

As Donas Da Zambézia Na Ficção Narrativa: Da Imaginação Colonial À Imaginação Nacional, Fátima Mendonça

Portuguese Cultural Studies

O texto analisa a forma como as chamadas Donas da Zambézia e os acontecimentos históricos em que participaram, são representados quer na ficção colonial portuguesa quer em narrativas pós-coloniais da autoria de escritores moçambicanos. Pretende mostrar, com o exemplo de Zambeziana, publicado em 1927 em Portugal, a intersecção existente entre o discurso exótico e o discurso colonial, incidindo sobre os tópicos raciais e sexuais, entre outros. Numa perspectiva comparada mostra igualmente como os mesmos acontecimentos históricos e personagens, nomeadamente a Dona, são apropriados e reinterpretados por escritores moçambicanos nos dias de hoje.

The essay analyzes how historical Zambezia women—the ...


Ambiguidades Luso-Tropicais Em Rodrigues Júnior, Sandra Sousa 2021 University of Central Florida

Ambiguidades Luso-Tropicais Em Rodrigues Júnior, Sandra Sousa

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Este artigo pretende revisitar um dos mais importantes escritores da literatura colonial portuguesa, Rodrigues Júnior (1902-1990). Ao analisar duas das suas obras, Sehura (1944) e Muende (1960), pretende-se demonstrar a sua relevância para a compreensão das relações sociais e raciais no Moçambique colonial, enfatizando a ambiguidade retratada nestes romances. Ao mesmo tempo, é intenção desmistificar a ideia luso-tropicalista ou do excepcionalismo português em relação a outros modos europeus de colonizar.

This article aims to revisit one of the most important writers of Portuguese colonial literature, Rodrigues Júnior (1902-1990). By analyzing two of his books, Sehura (1944) and Muende (1960), I ...

Discursos Institucionales Y Manuales De Texto De La American Association Of Teachers Of Spanish (1912–1944): Un Estudio De La Historia Política De La Enseñanza Del Español En Estados Unidos, Inés Vañó García

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This study focuses on the political history of the teaching of Spanish in the United States during the first half of 20th century. Drawing from the history of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish – AATS (1926) as a normative agent, along with key linguistic instruments created by its well-known members, this research examines its role in the creation and shaping of a new academic field in which two ideological processes were key in the configuration of this disciplinary space: hispanism and panamericanism. By identifying a collection of teaching materials, this project explores the normative model and methodologies that were ...

Repensando La Discapacidad En España Y Latinoamérica: La Producción Cultural Hispánica De Autores/As Con Diversidad Funcional En Los Siglos Xx Y Xxi, Montserrat Fuente-Camacho

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Esta tesis se centra en el análisis de la producción cultural hispánica contemporánea de autores/as con diversidad funcional para investigar cómo se representan a sí mismos en sus obras y qué medios utilizan cuando cuestionan el discurso capacitista que los margina. Además, se comparan las semejanzas y diferencias que existen entre dichas representaciones y se señala cuál es su valor temático y estético. Mediante el análisis de la interconexión de la diversidad funcional con múltiples categorías como género, sexualidad, raza, edad y clase social, exploro varios tipos de obras –documental, poesía, diario, novela gráfica y ficción juvenil– creadas por ...

The Minatory Minotaur: Demythologizing Myth In “The House Of Asterion”, Evan Chiovari 2021 University of Central Florida, Orlando

The Minatory Minotaur: Demythologizing Myth In “The House Of Asterion”, Evan Chiovari

The Pegasus Review: UCF Undergraduate Research Journal

Recent critics of Jorge Luis Borges’s “The House of Asterion” (1947) have traced the author’s revisions in the original manuscript, charting his changing arrangement of information through the text. This essay investigates the information itself through structuralist and historicist theory. A structuralist reading analyzes Asterion’s worldview and shows how various narrators dock the integrity of his voice. Historicism probes aspects of religion, biology, and architecture to limn the true complexity of Asterion’s ties with society. Together, these theories reveal a trove of intricate intrigue and doubt. In this study I examine how Asterion, a reinvention of ...

Beyond "Viuda De": Practical Approaches To Promoting Mexican Books Printed At Women-Owned Businesses, Taylor Leigh, Colleen W. Barrett 2021 University of Kentucky

Beyond "Viuda De": Practical Approaches To Promoting Mexican Books Printed At Women-Owned Businesses, Taylor Leigh, Colleen W. Barrett

Library Presentations

Women print shop owners have existed for much longer than most people realize, including those in Latin America, where they have been active since at least the seventeenth century. Unfortunately, these texts are not always clearly cataloged or described in a way that is easy to locate beyond searching “viuda de,” in the publisher field. Though many title-pages describe their businesses in terms of being a widow of their husband, these female business owners deserve credit for their efforts and should be findable in their own right. This poster would highlight the strategies and steps taken by a Hispanic studies ...


En Busca De La Juventud Perdida, Reconciliación Y Desagravio En Carta Al Padre De Jesús Aguado, Kathryn A. Everly 2021 Syracuse University

En Busca De La Juventud Perdida, Reconciliación Y Desagravio En Carta Al Padre De Jesús Aguado, Kathryn A. Everly

Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics

Jesús Aguado's recent book, Carta al padre (2016), deals openly with both physical and emotional trauma suffered at the hands of toxic masculinity. The poetic voice vindicates his younger self, abused by the father, through the written word that transfers power to the weak and disenfranchised. Lacanian naming and patriarchal structures (family, language) become transparent through Aguado's unique poetic sensibility.


Distribución De Las Funciones Retóricas De Las Citas En Los Apartados Del Trabajo Fin De Máster Escrito En Español Y En Inglés, David Sánchez-Jiménez 2021 CUNY New York City College of Technology

Distribución De Las Funciones Retóricas De Las Citas En Los Apartados Del Trabajo Fin De Máster Escrito En Español Y En Inglés, David Sánchez-Jiménez

Publications and Research

This study correlates with a research study published in the journal Pragmalingüística, in which the contrastive use of the rhetorical functions of citations in master’s theses in Spanish and English was studied. The main objective pursued by this new research is to determine which rhetorical functions are used most frequently in the different parts of a master’s thesis and what these can accomplish in each part of the text. Following Petrić (2007), a computerized textual analysis of the rhetorical function of citation was used to study this phenomenon in a corpus of sixteen (16) theses of which eight ...
