Food Matters: Alonso Quijano’S Diet And The Discourse Of Early Modern Food In Spain, Carolyn Nadeau 2016 Illinois Wesleyan University

Food Matters: Alonso Quijano’S Diet And The Discourse Of Early Modern Food In Spain, Carolyn Nadeau

Carolyn A Nadeau

In the second sentence of Don Quixote, Cervantes describes the diet of the protagonist, Alonso Quijano: “A stew made of more beef than mutton, cold salad on most nights, abstinence eggs on Saturdays, lentils on Fridays, and an additional squab on Sundays.” Through an inventive and original engagement with this text, Carolyn A. Nadeau explores the shifts in Spain’s cultural and gastronomic history. Using cooking manuals, novels, poems, dietary treatises, and other texts, she brings to light the figurative significance of foodstuffs and culinary practices in early modern Spain. Drawing on the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Stephen Mennell ...


La Pluralisation Du Verbe Impersonnel Haber Dans L’Espagnol Des Caraïbes Et De L’Amérique Latine Continentale, Angelica Hernandez Constantin 2016 Western University

La Pluralisation Du Verbe Impersonnel Haber Dans L’Espagnol Des Caraïbes Et De L’Amérique Latine Continentale, Angelica Hernandez Constantin

Western Papers in Linguistics / Cahiers linguistiques de Western

Selon la grammaire prescriptive de la langue espagnole, un verbe impersonnel ne peut se conjuguer qu’à la troisième personne du singulier. Un tel verbe en espagnol est le verbe haber qui s’utilise pour exprimer la présence ou existence d’un objet.

  1. Había muchas personas.

    Il y avait beaucoup de personnes.’

Cependant, on trouve fréquemment que des formes plurielles du verbe impersonnel haber sont utilisées par les locuteurs natifs de la langue.

Ce phénomène, connu comme la pluralisation du verbe haber (Claes 2014). Selon Claes (2014) il montre un changement linguistique où on voit une forme personelle du verbe ...


Los Usos De La Lectura Realista: Ficción Y Crítica, Dagoberto Caceres Aguilar 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Los Usos De La Lectura Realista: Ficción Y Crítica, Dagoberto Caceres Aguilar

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

La presente tesis examina el proceso de negociación de modelos de realidad que surge desde el circuito de comunicación literaria. Se argumenta que mediante el tratamiento realista de los textos narrativos la recepción crítica contemporánea expresa y reafirma estrategias de aceptación, rechazo o trascendencia de paradigmas de espacio y subjetividad. La instrumentación de las narraciones se traduce en un rango muy amplio de respuestas. Con todos sus matices, las experiencias del uso realista de la ficción pueden oscilar desde la asimilación acrítica hacia el distanciamiento del lector de los modelos que mediatizan su visión de las culturas hispánicas. En la ...

The Tragedy Of Alcazarquivir: The Collapse Of Kingship, Empire And Narrative, Ruth MacKay 2015 xxxxx

The Tragedy Of Alcazarquivir: The Collapse Of Kingship, Empire And Narrative, Ruth Mackay

Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

After the death of King Sebastian in the Battle of Alcazarquivir (1578), Portugal lost its independence, and the Avis dynasty ended. Many chronicles recounted the defeat, especially as the unwise Sebastian was said to have survived and imposters soon appeared. This article describes the intersection of two genres, epic poetry and poetic historiography, and how their conjunction in the Alcazarquivir chronicles, which were copied and modified for decades and centuries (in Spanish more than in Portuguese), shaped subsequent narratives. The chronicles also were a way of assessing good kingship, conspicuously absent in the case of Sebastian. Features from classical literature ...


Linguistic Transfer: Studying Third Language Acquisition In University Context, Jordan E. Rehbock, Rebeca Acevedo 2015 Loyola Marymount University

Linguistic Transfer: Studying Third Language Acquisition In University Context, Jordan E. Rehbock, Rebeca Acevedo

Research & Exhibition

While much past work in linguistics has focused on second language acquisition and the interlanguage that is developed within such an individual, this project would investigate the way that such an interlanguage influences a learner of a third language. Previous studies on third language acquisition (TLA) have largely focused on determining the initial state of L3 interlanguage. To contribute to the discussion on TLA, this study would be concerned specifically with students with experience in the formal classroom setting and gauge interference from an L1 or L2 on the acquisition of an L3. While various forms of interference can be ...


Strategies To Enhance Self-Efficacy Amongst Esl Students, Alanna Quinn, Yvette V. Lapayese 2015 Loyola Marymount University

Strategies To Enhance Self-Efficacy Amongst Esl Students, Alanna Quinn, Yvette V. Lapayese

Research & Exhibition

My research will examine which teaching techniques and classroom structures contribute to higher levels of self-efficacy amongst Spanish-speaking English as a Second Language (ESL) students in Los Angeles public elementary school classrooms. Most published research only examines the self-efficacy levels of high school students, and don’t center specifically on Spanish speakers. I will perform a year of classroom observation at an L.A. public school that has an equal split of ESL students and native English speakers. I will dissect the teaching strategies, self-efficacy enhancing techniques, and classroom environment utilized in these classrooms, and I will use first-hand interviews ...


Extra-Textual, Intra-Textual, And Neo-Baroque Constructions Of Violent Space In Three Women Writers From The Southern Cone, Gail Bulman 2015 Syracuse University

Extra-Textual, Intra-Textual, And Neo-Baroque Constructions Of Violent Space In Three Women Writers From The Southern Cone, Gail Bulman

Gail A. Bulman

The purpose of this dissertation is to use feminist theories, semiotics, and current theories on the Neo-Baroque, to analyze the way in which three 1970's and 1980's Latin American women writers from the Southern Cone configure artistic space, in order to reveal how their representations of space reflect the poly-dimensional nature of violence. In each of the texts presented, (Informacion para extranjeros by Argentine Griselda Gambaro, Una pasion prohibida by Uruguayan Cristina Peri Rossi, and Por la patria by Chilean Diamela Eltit), the intra-textual space carries extra-textual signification in its representation of the local political and cultural violence ...

La Ciencia Ficción Y La Narrativa Posmoderna: Hacia La Convergencia, Mikel Peregrina 2015 Universidad Complutense de Madrid

La Ciencia Ficción Y La Narrativa Posmoderna: Hacia La Convergencia, Mikel Peregrina

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

En Postmodernist Fiction Brian McHale defendía un acercamiento entre la ciencia ficción y la narrativa posmoderna. Mientras que la novela posmo­derna toma topos de la ciencia ficción, la ciencia ficción usa herramientas narrativas de la posmodernidad. Tanto Slaughterhouse-Five, de Kurt Vonnegut, como Dying Inside, de Robert Silverberg, reflejan esa conver­gencia. Además, la imbricación también aparece en las letras españolas, como demuestran los análisis de El mundo en la era de Varick , de Andrés Ibáñez, y de Lágrimas de luz, de Rafael Marín.


The Amazon In Brazilian Speculative Fiction: Utopia And Trauma, M. Elizabeth Ginway 2015 University of South Florida

The Amazon In Brazilian Speculative Fiction: Utopia And Trauma, M. Elizabeth Ginway

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

There are two key moments when the Amazon is used as the setting for Brazilian science fiction, both during periods of dictatorship in the twentieth century. The first takes place during the authoritarian government of Getúlio Vargas (1930-1945), the second after the decades-long push for modernization and technological change imposed by the military government from 1964 to 1985. My study shows that, for writers of the first half of the twentieth century, the Amazon is a place of adventure, a setting for stories whose imaginative events ignore the region’s anthropology, history and indigenous cultures. Among the early Brazilian Amazonian ...
