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 ...


Fragmentation And Multiplicity In Cuban-American Identity: In Cuba I Was A German Shepherd By Ana Menéndez And Memory Mambo By Achy Obejas, Daimys E. Garcia 2016 Graduate Center, City University of New York

Fragmentation And Multiplicity In Cuban-American Identity: In Cuba I Was A German Shepherd By Ana Menéndez And Memory Mambo By Achy Obejas, Daimys E. Garcia

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

Maria Lugones offers a new way of perceiving the world, which makes visible that fragmentation is not a valuable and transgressive understanding of identity, as Western philosophy and some political theory suggests. What Lugones believes in, as a strategy of resistance to the dominant gaze, is multiplicity – mestizaje. Using Lugones’s framework, this thesis will look at the different aspects of Cuban-American characters in In Cuba I was a German Shepherd by Ana Menéndez and Memory Mambo by Achy Obejas. Each novel offers insight into how characters develop and understand themselves (and others) when they use language that shows that ...


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 ...


A Daring Voice: Confessional Poetry Of The 1970s From Argentina And The United States, Julia Eva Leverone 2016 Washington University in St. Louis

A Daring Voice: Confessional Poetry Of The 1970s From Argentina And The United States, Julia Eva Leverone

Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Daring to confront difficult socio-political realities on the page, Argentine and United States poets writing in the late 1960s and early 1970s strove against systems of silence. Implementing direct and indirect poetics, each set of poets embodied, in differing and overlapping ways, elements of the confessionalist mode, at once relational and witnessing. Their poetry in collections from these particular years reflected the risk in their auto-positioning as subjects within their poems and with complex relationships with their audience, and in their usage of language, sometimes fragmented, protective, or urgent. They committed personal experience to the page, and in conveying their ...

A Never Ending Journey: The Impossibilities Of Home In Sirena Selena Vestida De Pena And Flores De Otro Mundo, Irune del Rio Gabiola 2016 Butler University

A Never Ending Journey: The Impossibilities Of Home In Sirena Selena Vestida De Pena And Flores De Otro Mundo, Irune Del Rio Gabiola

Irune Gabiola

Reconsiderations of home have been crucially examined in Caribbean cultural productions. As Jamil Khader argues in her article on “Subaltern Cosmopolitanism: Community and Transnational Mobility in Caribbean Postcolonial Feminist Writings,” Caribbean feminists are faced with the task of challenging a conventional idea of home that has historically located women and other marginal subjects under conditions of oppression and exploitation. In focusing on the narratives by Aurora Levins Morales, Rosario Morales and Esmeralda Santiago, she points out the infinite sense of homelessness that invades, in particular, these Puerto Rican individuals who need to find more productive manners to articulate “home” while ...


Al Niño Y La Voz A Ti Debida: Dos Realidades Ideales, Irune del Rio Gabiola 2016 Butler University

Al Niño Y La Voz A Ti Debida: Dos Realidades Ideales, Irune Del Rio Gabiola

Irune Gabiola

PEDRO Salinas es el poeta moderno del amor influido tanto por el gusto renacentista, con alusiones implicitas a Jorge Manrique y Garcilaso, como por el gusto romintico -Espronceda o Becquer-. Su obra poetica se enmarca en tres fases claramente diferenciadas por Juan Marichal en Tres Voces de Pedro Salinas. "La primera que corresponde alas dos d6cadas 1913-1933, es la fase de lo que podrfamos denominar fase de encentraci6nl;a segunda, de 1933-1936, es la fase de lo que podrfamos denominar de descentracio6enn el th de la amada, y la tercera, de 1936 a 1951, es la fase final de sobre-centracioe6nn ...

Civilizando El Carnaval: La Retórica Del Progreso En Las Obras De Lola Rodríguez De Tío, Irune del Rio Gabiola 2016 Butler University

Civilizando El Carnaval: La Retórica Del Progreso En Las Obras De Lola Rodríguez De Tío, Irune Del Rio Gabiola

Irune Gabiola

La escritora puertorriqueña Lola Rodríguez de Tió (1843–1924) contribuyó a la cultura puertorriqueña mediante sus escritos a favor de la independencia de la isla, su inserción en terreno político y su participación en los diagnósticos nacionales. Desgraciadamente, la crítica apenas se ha acercado a la obra de esta prolífica escritora decimonónica que además reivindicó la presencia femenina en las artes, lo social y cultural. Tomando como punto de partida la representación narrativa del carnaval de Caracas y de Puerto Rico, mi acercamiento a su obra se encuadra en un análisis de la modernidad y en cómo esta tendencia eurocéntrica ...


Two Terms Of The Cuban Counterpoint: Transculturation In The Poetry Of Nicolás Guillén, Alanna L. Fulk 2016 University of Central Florida

Two Terms Of The Cuban Counterpoint: Transculturation In The Poetry Of Nicolás Guillén, Alanna L. Fulk

Honors in the Major Theses

The history of Latin America and the Caribbean was irreversibly altered by the arrival of the conquistadors, destruction of native civilizations and implementation of colonialism for hundreds of years. However, Spain also introduced the high culture of the baroque to Latin America and the Caribbean, which mixed with the cultures of native and African peoples, creating new, distinct forms of literary expression. Subsequent post-colonial cultural movements attempted to explore and reaffirm the variety of cultures that shaped both regions, including the movement of Afrocubanismo in Cuba, which occurred from 1910-1940. Afrocubanismo was a movement intended to incorporate African folklore and ...
