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 ...

Knowledge Of Adjective Reference By Monolingual Spanish- And English-Speaking Children, Martha Elizabeth Rayas Tanaka 2014 Western University

Knowledge Of Adjective Reference By Monolingual Spanish- And English-Speaking Children, Martha Elizabeth Rayas Tanaka

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

Previous studies (Waxman, Senghas and Benveniste, 1997 and Waxman and Guasti 2009) have concluded that there are crosslinguistic differences in the interpretation of adjectives by English, French, Spanish and Italian- monolingual speaking children. Their results show that only Spanish and Italian-speaking children categorized a novel adjective as an object responding in the same way for the categorization of a noun. According to the authors this is due to the Determiner-Adjective syntactic constructions in these languages that refer to the named objects or entities and to other members of that object category (e.g. los pobres). The present study looks more ...


What's The Subjunctive, Again? Preparing English Speakers For Learning Spanish, Emmy Lou Pearl Olsen 2014 Western Oregon University

What's The Subjunctive, Again? Preparing English Speakers For Learning Spanish, Emmy Lou Pearl Olsen

Honors Senior Theses/Projects

Fostering communicative competence goes far beyond throwing students into conversation groups. A communicative approach to language teaching involves using authentic language from the very beginning of instruction, presenting real or at least plausible language tasks, and focusing on use of language not on specific grammatical function. What this tends to mean for a classroom is much less time spent on explicit grammar instruction and more time spent on students “getting their hands dirty” and exploring the language for themselves. For all the shifting away from constant grammar lessons in second language teaching, there is still a time when some of ...

Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes 2014 Dickinson College

Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes

Honors Theses By Year

Ves una foto: un grupo de unos jóvenes asiáticos, todos vestidos con ropa que indica que son turistas (las camisetas rojas con la palabra, “London” escrito bajo una imagen de la bandera británica) posando con un libro. Al mirar con más detenimiento, observas que el libro lleva un título chocante: Maldito chino. Esta imagen, que está disponible en la página de Facebook de Paco López Mengual, el autor de Maldito chino, lleva una descripción que explica que esos jóvenes, en vez de sentirse ofendidos por el título y el argumento de la novela, tienen ganas de “saludar” al autor. Las ...

The Subjunctive Selecting Habits Of Spaniards And Spanish Language Learners In Jaén, Spain, Ashleigh M. Ladner 2014 The University of Southern Mississippi

The Subjunctive Selecting Habits Of Spaniards And Spanish Language Learners In Jaén, Spain, Ashleigh M. Ladner

Honors Theses

Because the Spanish subjunctive mood is so variable and does not adhere to a straightforward set of rules, research about its everyday uses by native speakers is very useful and enlightening for learners of the Spanish language. This particular study focuses on several matrices that have exhibited variation in other studies on the topic such as no pensar que, no creer que, dudar que, no dudar que, creer en la posibilidad de que, alegrarse de que, and dar pena de que. This study found that the second language learners (SLLs) demonstrated more variability regarding subjunctive/indicative mood selection than the ...


In A House, But Not A Home: Spanish Republican Exiles Find Refuge In Mexico The Question Of Memory And Identity For Republican Refugees, Alyssa Marie Trudeau 2014 Syracuse University

In A House, But Not A Home: Spanish Republican Exiles Find Refuge In Mexico The Question Of Memory And Identity For Republican Refugees, Alyssa Marie Trudeau

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

After the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), the victorious fascist Nationalists dominated the liberal sympathizers and established Republican government and forced those unwilling to comply into exile. Once in a state of exile, how were Republican Spaniards able or unable to maintain their Spanish identity? By focusing on Mexico as a location of refuge for these exiles, this thesis seeks to determine the important role played by memory, both collective and individual, and how allowing themselves to connect to the past helped exiles and influenced future generations to learn about the past of their relatives. Using support from personal interviews and ...


The Surrealist Woman: The Art Of Remedios Varo, Jacquelyn Yvonne White 2014 Syracuse University

The Surrealist Woman: The Art Of Remedios Varo, Jacquelyn Yvonne White

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Surrealism—a literary and artistic movement that has often been criticized for being misogynistic—stemmed from the idea of representing the unconscious mind, unburdened by societal norms. Several female surrealist artists and writers did emerge during the movement, including Remedios Varo, a Catalan surrealist painter. Throughout the early stages of her career, Varo was barely recognized by her male surrealist counterparts. Varo’s gender and background influenced her interpretation of femininity. When comparing Varo’s paintings with those of another famous Catalan surrealist, Salvador Dalí, the difference in the representation of women is striking. Unlike Varo, Dalí conformed to the ...

Before You Knew Me, Isabel Ontiveros 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Before You Knew Me, Isabel Ontiveros

UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones

My thesis is a collection of short stories titled Before You Knew Me. The collection centers on people whose lives have been affected by addiction or loneliness. Families attempt to get through adversities and piece together the fragments of a life they once had. Happiness for both the adults and the children depends on their ability to resist the cycle of dysfunction and the pressures of their peers.

The collection begins with a Gothic story about an abduction. My story "Goldfish" was inspired by Joyce Carol Oates's "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been," where a young girl ...


Remembering The Perpetrators: Nationalist Postmemory And Andrés Trapiello’S Ayer No Más, Katherine O. Stafford 2014 Bowdoin College

Remembering The Perpetrators: Nationalist Postmemory And Andrés Trapiello’S Ayer No Más, Katherine O. Stafford

Dissidences

In the last decade, much scholarly work has been dedicated to “postmemory,” a term coined by Holocaust scholar Marianne Hirsch and defined as “the response of the second generation to the trauma of the first.” This framework, originally applied to the creative work of the second generation of Holocaust victims, has also been used to treat the legacy of pain of Spanish Civil War victims. In literature, the majority of 21st century Spanish Civil War novels center upon the Republican victim (see Bertrand de Muñoz “Tendencias”). Andrés Trapiello’s novel Ayer no más counters this trend, as the protagonist ...


Labor, Vera Bauluz 2014 Claremont Colleges

Labor, Vera Bauluz

CGU MFA Theses

I make sacred objects from scratch, from ready mades, from industrial materials, and sometimes from trash or recycling. I treat those objects with love and reverence to embed them with essence and soul. I propose conversations with objects exquisitely executed, that question our social order and the machine, easily understood by everybody, although still challenging our understanding of contemporary art.

The placement of the work and the lighting, as fundamental part of the installation, attempts to generate strokes of conscience that enhance human understanding and capabilities beyond a specific discourse.

Humor and sacred coexist in my installation and in my ...

A Comparrision Between Formal Medical Spanish Terminology And The Terminology Used By Low-Income Hispanics, Kathryn Rothas, '14, Christina Isabelli, Faculty Advisor

John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference

It has been observed by Illinois Wesleyan students enrolled in the Medical Spanish course that when translating for patients in a clinical setting one of the two situations can occur: 1) the Spanish-speaking patient will use terminology unrecognizable by the student when describing their conditions or symptoms; or 2) the student translator will use terminology taught in their Medical Spanish course to describe conditions, symptoms and treatment instructions, but the terminology is unrecognizable by the Spanish-speaking patients. This miscommunication between the translator and the patient can lead to lack of treatment adherence or improper diagnosis due to a misinterpretation of ...

Reading Through Don Quixote, Christopher Mark 2014 Olin College of Engineering

Reading Through Don Quixote, Christopher Mark

2014 AHS Capstone Projects

Throughout the semester I read through the classical Spanish novel Don Quixote in both English and Spanish. The novel is a classic for many reasons, most notably it is the first major example of character development throughout a work of literature. The historical context of Don Quixote in 15th and 16th century Spain adds to the intricacies of the novel; the themes, issues, and commentary throughout the novel have political relevance in terms of Miguel Cervantes’ view of the state of his country as well as broader opinions of the Spanish people. As I read through the novel, I explored ...


Clinica Madre De Dios: A Medical Spanish Service Learning Project, Alicia De Leon 2014 Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne

Clinica Madre De Dios: A Medical Spanish Service Learning Project, Alicia De Leon

IPFW Student Research and Creative Endeavor Symposium

As our diversity continues to rise throughout the Fort Wayne area, enriching various aspects of life in our community, we also welcome populations of various, non-English speaking minorities and with this a number of detrimental miscommunications throughout our community follow. These communication barriers are evident throughout our city; young, bilingual children often act as interpreters for monolingual parents, however, not all non-English speakers have this advantage, nor is it always appropriate. Due to HIPPA and a general lack of medical Spanish interpreters and translators, a stressful and terrifying situation for any native English speaker in his/her own country, can ...
