The Construction Of The Memory Of Italy In Argentina Through A Choice Of Translated Essays, Maria Belén Hernández-González 2016 University of Murcia

The Construction Of The Memory Of Italy In Argentina Through A Choice Of Translated Essays, Maria Belén Hernández-González

CALL: Irish Journal for Culture, Arts, Literature and Language

As a country of immigrants, Argentina assimilated several languages in its idiolect. The languages spoken by the majority of newcomers were amalgamated with Spanish. In this respect, the birth of Argentina as an independent nation is connected to migration and translation. In fact, in Argentina, exiled or immigrant Spanish and Italian writers earned their living primarily as translators for publishers and journals, and in many cases their work was of outstanding quality. As part of an ongoing research project entitled "Essay, cultural memory and translation in Sur (1931-1970)", this paper reveals a particular interpretation of Italian culture through the translations ...


The Choral Intensification Of A Chronotope, Lluís Muntada Vendrell 2016 University of Girona

The Choral Intensification Of A Chronotope, Lluís Muntada Vendrell

CALL: Irish Journal for Culture, Arts, Literature and Language

According to an ancient constant, literature can be regarded as a struggle against oblivion, as an attempt to preserve individual and collective memory. On the grounds of the Pragmatics of Literature, we can consider that the processes of (re)construction of the literary memory of rootlessness, exile, persecution and imprisonment reveal two basic types of creative models: the objective description of reality and a plausible fictionality. This paper focuses on the first of these two creative models through the exploration and critical analysis of the book Allez! Allez!, which contains a set of texts by several authors compiled by Professor ...


"Dad, Yo Soy Una Chica Americana": Migration, Identity And Language In Eduardo González Viaña's El Corrido De Dante, Fredrik Olsson 2016 University of Gothenburg

"Dad, Yo Soy Una Chica Americana": Migration, Identity And Language In Eduardo González Viaña's El Corrido De Dante, Fredrik Olsson

CALL: Irish Journal for Culture, Arts, Literature and Language

The focus of this article is the representation of language and identity in Hispanic immigrant literature. It provides a framework for the analysis of linguistic and cultural constructions of migrant identities in literary texts, on the basis of the exploration of the novel El Corrido de Dante, by Eduardo González Viaña. The most significant finding is that González Viaña applies linguistic homogenization in order to stress a common Hispanic identity without effacing cultural, national and ethnic differences, as these are stylistically marked by means of strategic (re)creations of different varieties of Spanish and instances of code-switching between Spanish and ...


“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi 2016 Independent Scholar

“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi

Dissidences

Cinematic structure remains constitutively collaborative. While critics like André Bazin have described cinema as mixed or impure, this article advances the concept of cinema as collaborative aesthetics. The conventional understanding of collaboration is that it represents aggregation, namely the gradual growth toward a total and completed whole. After all, collaborative practice generally works toward identifiable goals. Conversely, I argue here that The Hour of the Furnaces shows us how cinematic collaboration also operates by subtractions, unresolved dissonances, unfinished instances, and contradictions rather than syntheses or cohesive totality. Despite the filmmakers’ express intentions, I contend that their political documentary film lacks ...


La Visión Del Colombiano En La Hojarasca, El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, De Gabriel García Márquez, Luz S. Valencia Galvis 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

La Visión Del Colombiano En La Hojarasca, El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, De Gabriel García Márquez, Luz S. Valencia Galvis

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

El presente trabajo tiene el propósito de analizar la construcción identitaria del colombiano en las obras La hojarasca, El coronel no tiene quien le escriba y Crónica de una muerte anunciada de Gabriel García Márquez. Bajo esta perspectiva, se indagará sobre algunos aspectos que intervienen en la configuración y expresión de la identidad cultural del colombiano representado en los personajes de cada obra, como el lenguaje, las costumbres sociales y culturales, los estereotipos en su lugar/época. Con lo antes indicado, intento esclarecer la visión del colombiano según García Márquez. Asimismo, se realizará una descripción de la evolución de los ...


Espacio, Movimiento Y Afecto En Lumpérica Y Vaca Sagrada, De Diamela Eltit, Alberto Lopez Martin 2016 Davidson College

Espacio, Movimiento Y Afecto En Lumpérica Y Vaca Sagrada, De Diamela Eltit, Alberto Lopez Martin

Dissidences

En este trabajo analizo dos de las novelas más significativas de la autora chilena Diamela Eltit, Lumpérica y Vaca sagrada. Presto especial atención a la forma en que la autora plasma en su prosa el uso del cuerpo como significante y la conceptualización del lenguaje como espacio, al tiempo que aporto ejemplos textuales de la noción de zonas de dolor, acuñada por la propia Eltit. Si bien la crítica se ha referido a sus novelas como ficciones elusivas de su cualidad representativa, ningún trabajo hasta la fecha las ha estudiado desde la teoría no-representacional de Nigel Thrift, sumamente relevante por ...


Critical Pedagogy And Language Acquisition: Benefiting From A Country’S Crisis To Improve Second Language Instruction, Jamile Forcelini 2016 Florida State University

Critical Pedagogy And Language Acquisition: Benefiting From A Country’S Crisis To Improve Second Language Instruction, Jamile Forcelini

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

Education has the power to influence learners to either accept reality or critically deliberate and change it. Critical thinking is vital to empower learners and society as a whole to move from a practice of inertia to Freire’s practice of freedom as well as humanization. Change, however is only attainable if pursued with one of the most powerful social tools: Language; the most perceptible manifestation of culture and culture is our connection to the world, what unites us in society, identifies us communally, and serves us as guidance for civic conduct (Larson and Smalley, 1972). The present article aims ...


The Universality Of Traditional Tales Of The Portuguese Speaking Countries, M.Margarida Pereira-Müller 177152 2016 infobus, Queluz, Portugal

The Universality Of Traditional Tales Of The Portuguese Speaking Countries, M.Margarida Pereira-Müller 177152

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

Throughout the ages, the traditional tale has been the vehicle used for transmitting the culture from generation to generation - the memory of a community. Since the beginning of mankind there have always been tales in all countries and in all cultures of the world. Many of the traditional stories we think are Portuguese or European are to be found as well in other parts of the world, told in a very similar way. Sometimes the only difference is the physical frame: the landscape, the flora and the fauna, how people dress or eat.

Most of these tales have animals as ...


Blending Myth And Reality: Maritime Portugal And Renaissance Portraits Of The Royal Court, Barbara von Barghahn 2016 George Washington University, Department of Fine Arts and Art History, Washington, DC

Blending Myth And Reality: Maritime Portugal And Renaissance Portraits Of The Royal Court, Barbara Von Barghahn

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

Historians have long recognized the singular nautical achievements of sixteenth-century Portugal. The Renaissance age of navigation was characterized by intrepid Portuguese mariners who charted unknown waters in double or triple-masted caravels. Vasco da Gama opened a route around Africa to India in 1497. Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500 basically steered the same course to South Asia, but deviated on his return to set anchor off the coast of Brazil, the “Land of the True Cross.” Fernão Magalhães’s ship “Victoria” managed to circumnavigate the earth between 1519 and 1521. These Portuguese voyagers substantially changed the medieval world picture. Their maritime ...

Una exploración de las figuras simbólicas que encarna el personaje Carlos, protagonista de la novela Missing, de Alberto Fuguet: el huérfano, el desaparecido, el abandonado, lo abyecto, el cimarrón blanco, el loser...

En Missing. Una investigación, el escritor y cineasta chileno Alberto Fuguet desarrolla una variación sobre el tema de la búsqueda del progenitor desaparecido. Al principio, dice, se proponía novelar la conflictiva relación con su padre; al encontrar a su tío Carlos encuentra simultáneamente la historia de la relación de éste con su progenitor (el abuelo del novelista), y del mismo con esa otra autoridad suprafamiliar que es el ...


Santería And Resistance In Tomás Gutierrez Alea And Juan Carlos Tabío’S Strawberry And Chocolate And In Fernando Pérez’S Life Is To Whistle, David S. Dalton 2016 Pittsburg State University

Santería And Resistance In Tomás Gutierrez Alea And Juan Carlos Tabío’S Strawberry And Chocolate And In Fernando Pérez’S Life Is To Whistle, David S. Dalton

Journal of Religion & Film

The 1990s were a politically, socially, and economically turbulent decade for Cuba. It is neither surprising that it was during these years that the state amended its approach to religious freedom nor that it was during this time that Pope John Paul II made his historic visit to the island. Following the pontiff’s visit, the state amended the constitution and declared itself secular rather than Marxist, thus removing much of the stigma that believers had previously faced. In this article I analyze the relationship between the national cinema and religious freedom by showing that many Cuban directors challenged official ...


El Español En Estados Unidos Y La Academia Norteamericana De La Lengua Española: Una Historia Glotopolítica, Lorena Hernandez Ramirez 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

El Español En Estados Unidos Y La Academia Norteamericana De La Lengua Española: Una Historia Glotopolítica, Lorena Hernandez Ramirez

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The North American Academy of the Spanish Language (henceforth ANLE, from the Spanish Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Española), and more specifically, the discourses about Spanish in the US that emerge in certain moments of this institution’s history, will constitute the object of this study. ANLE was founded in 1973 and in 1980, after some controversial episodes, was finally accepted into the network of academies known as Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española (henceforth ASALE), led by the main normative institution for Spanish, the Spanish Royal Academy (henceforth RAE, from the Spanish Real Academia Española). Through an analysis ...


Cervantes' "Ocho Comedias Y Ocho Entremeses Nuevos, Nunca Representados": A Theater Of Tradition And Innovation, Michael K. Predmore 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Cervantes' "Ocho Comedias Y Ocho Entremeses Nuevos, Nunca Representados": A Theater Of Tradition And Innovation, Michael K. Predmore

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This study closely examines the eight interludes and eight full-length plays that Cervantes published in a collection on the thirteenth of September, 1615. Although these theatrical works were published together, the collection has seldom been examined in its entirety as a coherent unit. The purpose of this study, therefore, will be to re-cast a critical focus upon these theatrical works as a whole, in order to provide insight into Cervantes as both a playwright and as an inquisitive and unconventional thinker of his day. Typically, Cervantes was seen as a fairly conventional dramatist until around 1950, when a significant number ...


Lengua Y Racismo-Motivación, Competencia Y Conciencia Lingüística En La Clase De Español Como Segunda Lengua: Integración De Contenidos Relacionados Con La Dimensión Socio-Política Del Lenguaje En Un Acercamiento Content-Based, Jose Magro 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Dentro de un modelo de instrucción lingüística basado en la transmisión de contenidos (content-based instruction), esta disertación trata de averiguar cómo influye en la conciencia lingüística, motivación y competencia lingüística de estudiantes de cursos avanzados de español como segunda lengua, la integración en el programa de contenidos relacionados con la dimensión socio-política del lenguaje (CSP). Desde la perspectiva epistemológica de la lingüística crítica aplicada, se hará un estudio cualitativo apoyado con componentes cuantitativos. Se desarrollarán e integrarán en el programa del grupo experimental materiales con CSP destinados a observar si influyen en el desarrollo de una conciencia lingüística explícitamente antirracista ...


Masculinidades En Crisis Y Prácticas De Resistencia Feminista En La Literatura Y El Cine Españoles De Autoría Femenina, Carmen Sanchis-Sinisterra 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Masculinidades En Crisis Y Prácticas De Resistencia Feminista En La Literatura Y El Cine Españoles De Autoría Femenina, Carmen Sanchis-Sinisterra

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation examines the representation of masculinity in crisis in films and novels by contemporary female authors of Spain. The films are El último viaje de Robert Rylands by Gracia Querejeta, Te doy mis ojos by Iciar Bollaín and La vida sin mí by Isabel Coixet. The novels are Amado amo by Rosa Montero, Los aires difíciles by Almudena Grandes and La conquista del aire by Belén Gopegui. The question this dissertation asks is if by introducing male characters that lack power, control and success the works promote practices of feminist resistance. The answer is that they do but, as ...


Intenciones Enmascaradas En La Pantalla Plateada. El Santo Y El Mimetismo Imperial, David S. Dalton 2016 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Intenciones Enmascaradas En La Pantalla Plateada. El Santo Y El Mimetismo Imperial, David S. Dalton

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

El cine Mexploitation de los 1960 y 1970 ha recibido poca atención académica debido a las supuestas fallas estéticas que emergieron cuando los directores de este movimiento yuxtaponían los tropos de la ciencia ficción y el horror hollywoodenses a películas protagonizadas por luchadores enmascarados. No obstante, este cine elucida los discursos imperialistas que abundaban en México a mediados del siglo veinte. En este ensayo analizamos el personaje del Santo —el luchador más exitoso del cine Mexploitation— a través de varias películas. Luego afirmamos que su cine postula una colonialidad liminal mexicana. El Santo interpretaba una versión ficticia de sí mismo ...


Science Fiction In The Spanish University: The Boundaries That Need To Be Broken, Sara Martín 2016 Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Science Fiction In The Spanish University: The Boundaries That Need To Be Broken, Sara Martín

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

The aim of this article is to trace what Rosi Braidotti calls an ‘accurate cartography’ as regards the limited space that science-fiction occupies in the Spanish university. SF has not yet overcome in Spain what Brian Baker has called its ‘crisis of legitimation’. Teaching this genre and doing research on it is, hence, still conditioned within our national borders by boundaries broken in the Anglo-American university many decades ago. Here I examine these boundaries, paying special attention to the institutional limitations preventing scholars from introducing innovations in teaching and research. Another main barrier, as I argue here, is the lack ...


Eugenia En Su Contexto: Utopía Y Proyecto Alterno De Nación, Miguel García 2016 University of California - Davis

Eugenia En Su Contexto: Utopía Y Proyecto Alterno De Nación, Miguel García

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

En fechas recientes la novela Eugenia: esbozo novelesco de costumbres futuras (Mérida, 1919), escrita por el doctor, funcionario público y pedagogo Eduardo Urzaiz, se ha vuelto una pieza clave para entender la ciencia ficción mexicana y latinoamericana, al ser uno de los ejemplos tempranos de especulaciones futuristas y por integrar en su discurso a la eugenesia, una ciencia alrededor de la cual se desarrolló un movimiento global cuyos alcances se siguen mapeando hoy en día. Sin embargo, dos problemas principales han impedido el entendimiento cabal de la novela: 1) una insuficiente comprensión de la relevancia de las ideas eugenésicas no ...
