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.

Representing Modern Female Villain: On Feminine Evil, Perverse Nationhood, And Opposition In Rómulo Gallegos’ Doña Bárbara And Salman Rushdie’S Midnight’S Children, Barbara Guerrero 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Representing Modern Female Villain: On Feminine Evil, Perverse Nationhood, And Opposition In Rómulo Gallegos’ Doña Bárbara And Salman Rushdie’S Midnight’S Children, Barbara Guerrero

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis aims to contribute to the scholarship on modern female villainy by further exploring the ways in which 20th century female villains are represented as well as the functions they carry out in the text. In this study, I look at Rómulo Gallegos’ doña Bárbara from Doña Bárbara (1929) and Salman Rushdie’s Indira Gandhi from Midnight’s Children (1981). I argue that both villains are a combination of already-existing forms of evil in more recognizable contexts as well as a rejection of and opposition to modern values. Firstly, I examine how the villains both conform and resist ...


The Crafting Of The Self In Private Letters And The Epistolary Novel: El Hilo Que Une, Un Verano En Bornos, Ifigenia, Querido Diego, Te Abraza Quiela, And Cartas Apócrifas, Angelica A. Nelson 2016 Florida International University

The Crafting Of The Self In Private Letters And The Epistolary Novel: El Hilo Que Une, Un Verano En Bornos, Ifigenia, Querido Diego, Te Abraza Quiela, And Cartas Apócrifas, Angelica A. Nelson

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The inherent flexibility of the letter form or epistolary mode of writing frees the writer within the framework of salutations and closings to use vocabulary and language to create, to omit or to invert conventional constraints imposed on women by a patriarchal society. The letter begins as a blank page but becomes the space for writing one’s personal thoughts and emotions to the absent other in a communicative effort to minimize the separation.

This dissertation examines the female narrator in actual letters written during the Spanish emigration to the New World in the sixteenth century and four epistolary novels ...


“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi 2016 Independent Scholar

“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi

Dissidences

Cinematic structure remains constitutively collaborative. While critics like André Bazin have described cinema as mixed or impure, this article advances the concept of cinema as collaborative aesthetics. The conventional understanding of collaboration is that it represents aggregation, namely the gradual growth toward a total and completed whole. After all, collaborative practice generally works toward identifiable goals. Conversely, I argue here that The Hour of the Furnaces shows us how cinematic collaboration also operates by subtractions, unresolved dissonances, unfinished instances, and contradictions rather than syntheses or cohesive totality. Despite the filmmakers’ express intentions, I contend that their political documentary film lacks ...


La Visión Del Colombiano En La Hojarasca, El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, De Gabriel García Márquez, Luz S. Valencia Galvis 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

La Visión Del Colombiano En La Hojarasca, El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba Y Crónica De Una Muerte Anunciada, De Gabriel García Márquez, Luz S. Valencia Galvis

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

El presente trabajo tiene el propósito de analizar la construcción identitaria del colombiano en las obras La hojarasca, El coronel no tiene quien le escriba y Crónica de una muerte anunciada de Gabriel García Márquez. Bajo esta perspectiva, se indagará sobre algunos aspectos que intervienen en la configuración y expresión de la identidad cultural del colombiano representado en los personajes de cada obra, como el lenguaje, las costumbres sociales y culturales, los estereotipos en su lugar/época. Con lo antes indicado, intento esclarecer la visión del colombiano según García Márquez. Asimismo, se realizará una descripción de la evolución de los ...


Espacio, Movimiento Y Afecto En Lumpérica Y Vaca Sagrada, De Diamela Eltit, Alberto Lopez Martin 2016 Davidson College

Espacio, Movimiento Y Afecto En Lumpérica Y Vaca Sagrada, De Diamela Eltit, Alberto Lopez Martin

Dissidences

En este trabajo analizo dos de las novelas más significativas de la autora chilena Diamela Eltit, Lumpérica y Vaca sagrada. Presto especial atención a la forma en que la autora plasma en su prosa el uso del cuerpo como significante y la conceptualización del lenguaje como espacio, al tiempo que aporto ejemplos textuales de la noción de zonas de dolor, acuñada por la propia Eltit. Si bien la crítica se ha referido a sus novelas como ficciones elusivas de su cualidad representativa, ningún trabajo hasta la fecha las ha estudiado desde la teoría no-representacional de Nigel Thrift, sumamente relevante por ...


Travesía De Zorros En La Última Novela De José María Arguedas, El Manuscrito Huarochirí Y Los Cuentos Orales De Los Andes Meridionales, Blanca Aranda Gómez García Ph.D 2016 Western Washington University

Travesía De Zorros En La Última Novela De José María Arguedas, El Manuscrito Huarochirí Y Los Cuentos Orales De Los Andes Meridionales, Blanca Aranda Gómez García Ph.D

Blanca Aranda

A partir del seguimiento del personaje del zorro en la novela El zorro de arriba y el zorro de abajo (1971) de José María Arguedas, este ensayo reconstruye una red intertextual que va más allá del texto escrito conectando la novela con el manuscrito del siglo XVI Dioses y hombres de Huarochirí y con los cuentos orales sobre el zorro en la región de los Andes meridionales. A través de esta lectura comparada, este artículo reconstruye el carácter cómico del personaje del zorro y confirma la relación entre la oralidad y la escritura en la región de los Andes. El ...

Una exploración de las figuras simbólicas que encarna el personaje Carlos, protagonista de la novela Missing, de Alberto Fuguet: el huérfano, el desaparecido, el abandonado, lo abyecto, el cimarrón blanco, el loser...

En Missing. Una investigación, el escritor y cineasta chileno Alberto Fuguet desarrolla una variación sobre el tema de la búsqueda del progenitor desaparecido. Al principio, dice, se proponía novelar la conflictiva relación con su padre; al encontrar a su tío Carlos encuentra simultáneamente la historia de la relación de éste con su progenitor (el abuelo del novelista), y del mismo con esa otra autoridad suprafamiliar que es el ...


Dos Rayanos-Americanos Rewrite Hispaniola: Julia Alvarez And Junot Díaz, Megan Jeanette Myers 2016 Iowa State University

Dos Rayanos-Americanos Rewrite Hispaniola: Julia Alvarez And Junot Díaz, Megan Jeanette Myers

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Juan Pablo Duarte, revered as a founding father of the Dominican Republic,2 recently found his nationalist message featured in a video on YouTube titled “ex Dominican@ os que juraron por la bandera de Haiti,” or “ex-Dominicans who swore on Haiti’s flag.” The short clip, about seven minutes in total, features a slideshow containing photos and names of Dominicans who, according to the nationalist, anti-Haitian producers of the video, have “betrayed their Dominican citizenship,” as the title slide suggests, and sworn allegiance to Haiti.3 What sparked the production of this video? The answer is muddled by centuries of ...


Heroísmo Y Conciencia Racial En La Obra De La Poeta Afro-Cubana Cristina Ayala, Maria A. Aguilar Dr. 2016 University at Albany, State University of New York

Heroísmo Y Conciencia Racial En La Obra De La Poeta Afro-Cubana Cristina Ayala, Maria A. Aguilar Dr.

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Faculty Scholarship

This article examines the poetry of Cuban writer Cristina Ayala emphasizing the political value of her use of a rhetoric of heroism, a discursive device that masks her demands for recognition of women’s rights and those of Afro-Cubans. The analysis of her poetry suggests that the symbolic manipulation of the “hero” and the representation of “colored” women as intellectuals and “heroes” expressed her desire to intervene in the public arena. By positioning herself within a political discourse that reconstructed slavery’s past, she narrated the revolutionary vicissitudes and created a utopian vision of the future for the Afro-Cuban community ...


Eugenia En Su Contexto: Utopía Y Proyecto Alterno De Nación, Miguel García 2016 University of California - Davis

Eugenia En Su Contexto: Utopía Y Proyecto Alterno De Nación, Miguel García

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

En fechas recientes la novela Eugenia: esbozo novelesco de costumbres futuras (Mérida, 1919), escrita por el doctor, funcionario público y pedagogo Eduardo Urzaiz, se ha vuelto una pieza clave para entender la ciencia ficción mexicana y latinoamericana, al ser uno de los ejemplos tempranos de especulaciones futuristas y por integrar en su discurso a la eugenesia, una ciencia alrededor de la cual se desarrolló un movimiento global cuyos alcances se siguen mapeando hoy en día. Sin embargo, dos problemas principales han impedido el entendimiento cabal de la novela: 1) una insuficiente comprensión de la relevancia de las ideas eugenésicas no ...


Televisual Subjectivities In Pepe Rojo’S Speculative Fiction From Mexico: 1996-2003, Stephen C. Tobin 2016 University of California, Los Angeles

Televisual Subjectivities In Pepe Rojo’S Speculative Fiction From Mexico: 1996-2003, Stephen C. Tobin

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

Pepe Rojo, a key author often tied to the Mexican cyberpunk movement of the 1990s, has been most effective in articulating a kind of visual dystopia in the country that focuses upon television as a key site for constructing dislocated subjectivities. His writing reacts to larger shifts occurring in the country’s field of vision that have been catalyzed by the neoliberal political-economic policy changes and have altered the way in which the mass media culture industry in Mexico functioned in the 1990s. This brought a multitude of changes in how the media industry functioned both internally and externally, ultimately ...
