Ecopsychology Revisited: For Whom Do The “Nature” Bells Toll? (In Progress), Jorge Conesa-Sevilla 2016 European Ecopsychology Society

Ecopsychology Revisited: For Whom Do The “Nature” Bells Toll? (In Progress), Jorge Conesa-Sevilla

Jorge Conesa-Sevilla PhD

"[...] A recurring theme in “ecopsychology,” in its present and inchoate form, is the continuation and extension of “spirit” in juxtaposition with other privileged and/or habitually preferred (perhaps even psychologically needed) practices or causes (spirituality-somethings, farcical chemistry or physics, yoga, coopted and partially understood indigenous lore, extreme diets, and various fetishes). That these mostly emotion-laden, unreasoned, and/or idiosyncratic amalgamations are prevalent says more about the psychological needs of the persons espousing these sentiments or beliefs (their hobbies or interests) than about “nature.” Certainly, it is nothing new that humans project their hopes, desperations, and wish-fulfillment thinking onto the shifting ...


José Tamayo In Spanish America, 1949-1951, Carey Kasten 2016 Fordham University

José Tamayo In Spanish America, 1949-1951, Carey Kasten

Teatro: Revista de Estudios Culturales / A Journal of Cultural Studies

“José Tamayo in Spanish America, 1949-1951” relies on previously overlooked archival material from Spain and Spanish America to reconstruct the performance schedule and study the financial management and critical reception of the Lope de Vega Company in Cuba, Puerto Rico and Colombia. In doing so, it sheds new light on Tamayo’s administration of the artistic agenda and fiscal needs of his company’s international tour, helping us to understand how Tamayo built and cultivated his growing fame, at home and abroad, in the early part of his career. The performance calendar featured in the article’s appendix provides a ...


Guerrilla Flamenca Contra El Capitalismo: Performance, Espacio Y Política En Las “Acciones” De Flo6x8., Ana Maria Diaz-Marcos Prof 2016 University of Connecticut - Storrs

Guerrilla Flamenca Contra El Capitalismo: Performance, Espacio Y Política En Las “Acciones” De Flo6x8., Ana Maria Diaz-Marcos Prof

Teatro: Revista de Estudios Culturales / A Journal of Cultural Studies

Este artículo analiza las acciones performativas que el colectivo sevillano Flo6x8 viene realizando desde el año 2008 en sucursales bancarias y cajeros automáticos, utilizados como espacios simbólicos que encarnan los abusos del sistema capitalista y que son ocupados durante estos performances cuyo archivo posteriormente reverbera en internet. Se aborda el papel subversivo del cuerpo en las acciones de Flo, la conversión de los espacios bancarios en heterotopías y el poder del flamenco para transmitir un espíritu de rebeldía que encarna la desobediencia ciudadana.

Traditions And Proficiency Abroad - Spain (Tapas) Program: A High School Study Abroad Program For District 128, Michaela Kendzior

Capstone Collection

As colleges begin to internationalize campuses and global competencies continue to become a demand in the workforce, secondary schools should also aim to internationalize the curriculum and offer international education opportunities to their students. In an effort to do this, I have created the Traditions And Proficiency Abroad - Spain (TAPAS) Program for Community High School District 128 in Illinois. The TAPAS program is a 20-day summer intensive cultural and language immersion program created to maximize learning potential in D128 students. While the program’s focus is on Spanish language and culture education, the orientation and instructional activities have been designed ...


Virtual Communities Of Practice For Non-Native K-12 Spanish Educators As Professional Development, Javier Gerardo Gómez 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

Virtual Communities Of Practice For Non-Native K-12 Spanish Educators As Professional Development, Javier Gerardo Gómez

Dissertations

Many world language and culture educators are non-native speakers of the language they teach. Although the current face-to-face professional development sessions do a good job in helping educators acquire technology tools to implement in their world language classrooms, professional development lacks in target language enrichment and providing ongoing collaboration among world language educators who are geographically dispersed. Additionally, the cost of attending state-wide, regional, and national world language professional development is very expensive and thus many world language educators cannot take part in these trainings. Consequently, many world language educators do not have the professional training they need to improve ...

Task Design Challenges: The Meta Task Of Building Plns For Foreign Language Acquisition, Jaya Kannan, Pilar Munday

Pilar Munday

Our latest collaborative research has primarily focused on studying challenges for digital pedagogy in promoting active learning and learner autonomy. These action research projects have been anchored in foreign language contexts in higher education settings. Here is a summary of two projects from 2014-2015: 1) With the goal of enhancing teaching practices in foreign language classrooms, the research project analyzed the use of student created videos to promote active learning. Using a case study of concrete tasks integrating student created videos in strengthening Spanish Language Acquisition (SLA), we were able to a)identify key characteristics of active learning, b)present ...


Aproximaciones Al Léxico Gay Y Sus Asociaciones Con Estereotipos En El Discurso Heteronormativo De La Comunidad Universitaria En Madrid, Lorena García-Barroso 2016 The Graduate Center, CUNY

Aproximaciones Al Léxico Gay Y Sus Asociaciones Con Estereotipos En El Discurso Heteronormativo De La Comunidad Universitaria En Madrid, Lorena García-Barroso

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

Este trabajo es un análisis sobre el nivel de conocimiento de las expresiones léxicas utilizadas en las interacciones sociales por el colectivo homosexual de Madrid. Analizaré los datos de un corpus de cuarenta hablantes heterosexuales llevado a cabo en un estudio sobre la existencia de estereotipos en el lenguaje vinculados a la homosexualidad en el contexto universitario en Madrid y veré si esta jerga léxica es compartida y aceptada en el discurso por los heterosexuales. Los resultados ponen en evidencia el inminente auge de una jerga gay que revela datos novedosos acerca del uso y conocimiento de sus términos y ...

Adquisición De Los Contrafactuales Pasados En Español: Mapeo De Formas – Significados En Las Interfaces Morfología – Sintaxis – Semántica – Pragmática, Diana Patricia Botero Ibarra

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This study focuses on the acquisition of the compound form of the Pluperfect Subjunctive to express counterfactual meaning in the past through conditional clauses. The aim was to examine in which instances we can find the greatest difficulty in the acquisition and what are the sets of information that stem from universal mechanisms.

This study included two experiments: Experiment 1 consisted of a sentence completion task and a written production task to investigate morphological recognition and morphological written production of subjunctive and conditional forms. Experiment 2 included an interpretation and context task, a sentence selection task, and a picture-matching task ...

Introduction: Theories Of The Ghost In A Transhispanic Context, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas, Amanda Petersen

Alberto Ribas-Casasayas

Nuestros muertos quieren ser parte de nuestra conversaci6n, no nos permiten olvidar, nos dicen que las comunidades que formamos en vida son parte tambien de las comunidades ausentes. -Cristina Rivera Garza, in Monica Maristain 1

[Our dead want to be part of our conversation, they do not allow us to forget, they tell us that the communities that are no longer present are also part of the communities we create in life.]

The commonplace phrase, "the ghosts of the past," evokes remoteness, something intangible that nevertheless is ever present, a sort of historical sublime. 2 As the Mexican novelist Cristina ...


Espectros: Ghostly Hauntings In Contemporary Transhispanic Narratives, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas, Amanda Petersen 2016 Santa Clara University

Espectros: Ghostly Hauntings In Contemporary Transhispanic Narratives, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas, Amanda Petersen

Alberto Ribas-Casasayas

Espectros is a compilation of original scholarly studies that presents the first volume-length exploration of the spectral in literature, film, and photography of Latin America, Spain, and the Latino diaspora. In recent decades, scholarship in deconstructionist "hauntology," trauma studies, affect in image theory, and a renewed interest in the Gothic genre, has given rise to a Spectral Studies approach to the study of narrative. Haunting, the spectral, and the effects of the unseen, carry a special weight in contemporary Latin American and Spanish cultures (referred to in the book as “Transhispanic cultures”), due to the ominous legacy of authoritarian governments ...

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 Amortajada: La Influencia De Las Ciencias En La Novela Mágico-Realista, Abigail J. Walsh 2016 University of Minnesota, Morris

La Amortajada: La Influencia De Las Ciencias En La Novela Mágico-Realista, Abigail J. Walsh

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

Entre las dos Guerras Mundiales, surgió un cambio de los pensamientos de la realidad, evidente en los avances científicos. Las repercusiones de la Primera Guerra Mundial resultaron en un pesimismo internacional en que todo el mundo cuestionó la realidad como la había conocido antes. En los años 1900 a 1927, Albert Einstein desarrolló las teorías de la relatividad, que recibieron una atención más pública en el año 1919 y con su viaje a París en 1922. Einstein rechazó los principios antecedentes como el reposo absoluto y la moción absoluta. En vez del absoluto, él enfatizó la relatividad de aspectos físicos ...


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 ...
