A Comparrision Between Formal Medical Spanish Terminology And The Terminology Used By Low-Income Hispanics, Kathryn Rothas, Christina Isabelli, Faculty Advisor 2017 Illinois Wesleyan University

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

Christina Isabelli

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 ...

Mario Rufino Méndez Y La Caricatura Política En Nuestra Raza: Estudio Testimonial De Una Rica Producción Cultural De Los Afro-Uruguayos (1933-1948), María Cristina Burgueño 2017 Marshall University

Mario Rufino Méndez Y La Caricatura Política En Nuestra Raza: Estudio Testimonial De Una Rica Producción Cultural De Los Afro-Uruguayos (1933-1948), María Cristina Burgueño

María Cristina Burgueño

This work is a one volume published by the National Library of Uruguay with a prologue by Dr. George Reid Andrews. It provides an in depth analysis of the corpus of caricatures made by Mario R. Mendez, an afro-Uruguayan artist, for the magazine “Our Race” during its second period 1933-1948. These editorial caricatures made a strong statement against the Fascism in Europe and the League of Nations’ attitude towards the invasion of Ethiopia ordered by Benito Mussolini. They also satirized the political and social reality in Uruguay. Both, the caricatures and the magazine provide a testimony of an extensive cultural ...


Networks Of Collaboration And Creation In Latin American Digital Literature, Carolina Gainza 2017 Universidad Diego Portales

Networks Of Collaboration And Creation In Latin American Digital Literature, Carolina Gainza

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Networks of Collaboration and Creation in Latin American Digital Literature" Carolina Gainza examines how production and reception of literature have been affected by digital technology, with special emphasis on issues related to Latin American digital literature. Gainza analyzes Jaime Alejandro Rodriguez's Narratopedia, Doménico Chiappe's La Huella de Cosmos, and Leonardo Valencia's and Eugenio Tiselli's El Libro Flotante in order to highlight collective practices of creation involved in digital productions. Through the discussion of these issues, Gainza offers an overview of ongoing changes wrought by digital technology in contemporary Latin American digital culture.

Lengua Y Violencias En Colombia: Discursos Sobre Patrimonio Lingüístico (1991-2010), Carolina Chaves-O'Flynn 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Lengua Y Violencias En Colombia: Discursos Sobre Patrimonio Lingüístico (1991-2010), Carolina Chaves-O'Flynn

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

This study explores the forms of invisible violence that inhabit contemporary representations of the Spanish language in Colombia and which, under institutional protection, manage to intervene in its social order. The general hypothesis proposed in this work is that, language representations in Colombia are discursively naturalized and reproduce categories oriented towards the nation’s social, political and cultural order. Once normalized in that sense, these beliefs produce invisible forms of violence that tend to be reproduced through language discourses in which the main ideological power lies in their apparently apolitical nature. These discourses are thus not read critically, but they ...


El Spill De Jaume Roig. Estudio De Relaciones Semióticas Con La Picaresca, Raul Macias Cotano 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

El Spill De Jaume Roig. Estudio De Relaciones Semióticas Con La Picaresca, Raul Macias Cotano

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

The Spill is a literary work written in the Catalan dialect of Valencia in 1460 by Jaume Roig, a prestigious doctor whose personal and public life is well known. The book presents numerous parallels with Lazarillo de Tormes, the 1554 novel written in Spanish (or “Castilian”) that has traditionally been considered the start of the picaresque genre in Spain. These similarities are so striking that it makes critics wonder if Spill may be a precedent of Lazarillo de Tormes. This dissertation studies the possible relations between those two books. The similarities are mostly thematic, for which the lens used to ...


Culturally And Linguistically Humble: A Preparation For Living Abroad, Diana Gonzalez 2017 Northwestern College - Orange City

Culturally And Linguistically Humble: A Preparation For Living Abroad, Diana Gonzalez

Northwestern Review

Presented in 2016 at Baekseok University in Cheonan City, South Korea at the 8th international conference of the International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE), this paper lays out the rationale for the approach taken in Northwestern College’s required preparations for students studying abroad. Elements in the preparation include getting students to identify influences on them of their home culture; to talk about their motivations and goals for studying abroad; to engage with Duane Elmer’s Cross-Cultural Connections and David Smith’s Learning from the Stranger; and perhaps most importantly, to engage with E. Hockett ...

Pos-Simulacro E Hipermodernidad En Como La Sombra Que Se Va, De Antonio Muñoz Molina, Sergio Restrepo 2017 The Catholic University of America

Pos-Simulacro E Hipermodernidad En Como La Sombra Que Se Va, De Antonio Muñoz Molina, Sergio Restrepo

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

Demostraré que Antonio Muñoz Molina, en su novela Como la sombra que se va (2014) supera el paradigma posmoderno de simulacro. La novela entrecruza geográficamente Lisboa tres relatos: una crónica de la escapada de James Earl Ray después de asesinar al reverendo Martin Luther King y las memorias de la creación tanto de su novela El invierno en Lisboa (1987) como de Como la sombra que se va. Muñoz Molina proyecta la crónica de Ray y la memoria de la creación de El invierno en Lisboa no sobre una Lisboa hiperreal, sino sobre un espacio concreto en el que se ...


Pijoaparte: El Pícaro Supermoderno En Últimas Tardes Con Teresa, De Juan Marsé, Nélida I. Devesa-Gómez 2017 University of Maryland

Pijoaparte: El Pícaro Supermoderno En Últimas Tardes Con Teresa, De Juan Marsé, Nélida I. Devesa-Gómez

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

En este ensayo propongo una lectura de Manolo “el pijoaparte”, protagonista de Últimas tardes con Teresa de Juan Marsé, como revisión de la figura del pícaro. Para ello, mi análisis se centra, por un lado, en la construcción del personaje, y por otro, en su relación con el espacio urbano. Apoyándome en las teorías de Marc Augé y Michel de Certeau, sugiero que Últimas tardes con Teresa presenta un contraste entre la modernidad representada por Barcelona y la burguesía, y el pijoaparte, que a través de su itinerario por la ciudad, motivado por la aspiración social, muestra una actitud supermoderna.
