La Guerra De 1898 O La Historia De Una (Incómoda) Foto De Familia, Francisco Moran 2018 Southern Methodist University

La Guerra De 1898 O La Historia De Una (Incómoda) Foto De Familia, Francisco Moran

Dissidences

La guerra de 1898 cuenta ya con una abundante bibliografía. Sus ángulos más importantes, tales como la cuestión racial, la de género y la política imperialista de los Estados Unidos, y la de los símbolos, entre otras, han sido objeto de discusión. Partiendo precisamente de la noción del 98 como «guerra simbólica», propuesta por Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, en este artículo argumento que la tesis de este autor permite plantear una lectura del 98 más abarcadora de cualquiera de las que se han hecho hasta ahora; una que además de incluir los contendientes más discutidos – España, Cuba, Estados Unidos – dé cabida ...

Las Montañas Desheredadas: Lo Fantástico Y Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) Como Docuficción, Mario Sánchez Gumiel 2018 University of Michigan

Las Montañas Desheredadas: Lo Fantástico Y Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) Como Docuficción, Mario Sánchez Gumiel

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

En este ensayo me propongo argumentar dos ideas: la primera, cómo, pese a su conocido e incuestionable carácter subversivo, Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) respeta en verdad las convenciones del género documental y, en consecuencia, cómo el cineasta calandino, a pesar de sus juegos formales con el surrealismo, era un hombre conocedor de (y alineado con) la práctica vigente de tales códigos genéricos. La segunda, que por medio de dicho respeto escrupuloso a las convenciones del documental, Buñuel consigue articular ese momento que Tzvetan Todorov (1938-2017) localiza alrededor de la duda que, entre creencia y descreencia, surge hacia aquello que ...


Breve Panorama Del Discurso Teórico Sobre El Género Fantástico, Licet García Simón 2018 Florida International University

Breve Panorama Del Discurso Teórico Sobre El Género Fantástico, Licet García Simón

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

Este ensayo intenta sintetizar las principales líneas de investigación sobre el género fantástico, y lleva a cabo un cotejo elemental de los puntos principales que derivan de las mismas. Los criterios de selección no responden necesariamente a un orden cronológico; más bien me interesa la dinámica de continuidad conceptual entre las diferentes hipótesis ya sea por afinidad o por divergencia. En ese sentido, el principio estructurador es la continuidad entre las diferentes posturas teóricas, y la relevancia de los aportes.

Second Language Acquisition Of Voicing Patterns In Spanish Sibilants, William Hagerman 2018 Harding University

Second Language Acquisition Of Voicing Patterns In Spanish Sibilants, William Hagerman

Honors College Research

In the current study, English-speaking students enrolled in an upper-level university Spanish class read a series of sentences that are designed to elicit alveolar sibilants [s, z] in coda position, both word-internal and word-final. Samples are analyzed using Praat (Boersma & Weenink 2005), and data analysis compares the duration of voicing of each sibilant to the total sibilant duration to determine the percentage of voicing assimilation. Given that voicing assimilation in native Spanish is variable rather than categorical (Romero 1999; Schmidt & Willis 2011; Garcia 2013), a control group of native speakers provides a comparison sample. Given the differences of the /s/ in English and Spanish, results are discussed comparing the production of the /s/ by native English speakers to the production of native Spanish speakers.

The Other At War: Performing The Spanish-Cuban-American War On U.S. And Cuban Stages, Juan R. Recondo 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Other At War: Performing The Spanish-Cuban-American War On U.S. And Cuban Stages, Juan R. Recondo

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Spanish-Cuban-American War, declared by the United States on April 25, 1898, marks a colonial shift in the history of the Caribbean and solidified the expansionist thrust of the United States outside national borders. Theatres in turn-of-the-century New York, which at this point was one of the theatrical centers of the nation, debated for audiences the imperialist character of the U.S. The Cuban struggle and the resulting Spanish-Cuban-American War permeated U.S. drama, thereby portraying a Caribbean in need of salvation by the military intervention of the United States. New York stages of the time became locations where various ...


Climate Change, Colonialism, And Second-Class Citizenry: A Case Study Of The Impacts Of Hurricane María In Puerto Rico, Aislyne Calianos 2018 University of Rhode Island

Climate Change, Colonialism, And Second-Class Citizenry: A Case Study Of The Impacts Of Hurricane María In Puerto Rico, Aislyne Calianos

Senior Honors Projects

The hurricane season of 2017 was a historic one, with mammoth storms making landfall one after another, in what seemed like an unrelenting assault on our coastal cities and communities. Hurricane Harvey inundated Houston, Irma plowed through Florida, and Maria devastated Puerto Rico, but one of these storms was unlike the others. Why is it that the American citizens of our southern states were able to recover so much more quickly than our citizens in Puerto Rico? In the era of climate change, we will be forced to reckon with the modern legacy of colonialism, as vulnerable communities must face ...


Redactándome A Mi Misma: Writing Place, Process, And Identity Across Two Languages, Jenna Ziegelmayer 2018 University of Rhode Island

Redactándome A Mi Misma: Writing Place, Process, And Identity Across Two Languages, Jenna Ziegelmayer

Senior Honors Projects

Emily Dickinson once wrote a poem titled “Tell all the truth but tell it slant,” where she advises writers to do just that. One should tell the truth about their experiences, but tell it through their own unique perspective in order to make it “dazzle” on the page. My slant? Una segunda lengua.

As a student of Spanish, learning a different language has impacted the way that I see the world and my place in it. Studying abroad taught me about the language and culture of Spain, but it also taught me a lot about myself, my own native language ...


Perspectives From The Streets And The Classrooms In The Same 'Hood: Linguistic Landscapes Of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Luis Guzman Valerio 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Perspectives From The Streets And The Classrooms In The Same 'Hood: Linguistic Landscapes Of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Luis Guzman Valerio

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation studies the linguistic landscape of the neighborhood of Sunset Park, in Brooklyn, New York by taking into account both a main commercial avenue and a public school with a dual language bilingual program in English and Spanish. Sunset Park is a multi-ethnic and immigrant neighborhood (Hum, 2014). While research has been done into the linguistic landscape of streets, cities, and communities, on the one hand, and about the linguistic landscape in education, on the other, the co-existence of these two in the same context has barely been studied (cf. Maldonado, 2015). This dissertation makes a contribution to the ...

Storytelling Through Movement: An Analysis Of The Connections Between Dance & Literature, Zoe Hester 2018 East Tennessee State University

Storytelling Through Movement: An Analysis Of The Connections Between Dance & Literature, Zoe Hester

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Movement and storytelling are the links between past and present; both dance and literature have the same artistic and primal origins. We began to dance to express and communicate, to worship and feel. We tell stories for the same reasons: to learn from the past and to be able to communicate in the present.

This work explores the many connections between literature and dance through examinations of six dance forms: Native American, Bharatanatyam, West African, Ballet, Modern, and Post-Modern dance.


Los Matices Varios Del Feminismo En Las Comunidades Indígenas De América Latina: Yorkín, Costa Rica Y Santa Anita, Guatemala, Roseangela G. Hartford 2018 Ursinus College

Los Matices Varios Del Feminismo En Las Comunidades Indígenas De América Latina: Yorkín, Costa Rica Y Santa Anita, Guatemala, Roseangela G. Hartford

Spanish Honors Papers

This project investigates gender constructs and the complex assigned gender roles in settings of female indigenous leadership in Latin America. It examines two distinct indigenous communities, including the BriBri society in Yorkín, Costa Rica and the Maya peoples in Santa Anita, Guatemala that demonstrate the circumstantial spectrum in which women can obtain leadership roles and what actors directly influence this process. Each case study explores the fluidity of gender identities in which concepts of masculinity and femininity often guide female empowerment and liberation. Costa Rica and Guatemala offer contrasting experiences in terms of governmental stability, as Costa Rica abolished its ...
