El Rock En Nicaragua: Un Discurso De Resistencia Contra La Neoliberalización O Una Re-Definición De La Tradición., Martina Barinova 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

El Rock En Nicaragua: Un Discurso De Resistencia Contra La Neoliberalización O Una Re-Definición De La Tradición., Martina Barinova

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Abstract in English

This work, which parts from the premise that music is a medium of communication with the potential to transform and create identities, explores rock music in Nicaragua since its beginning until the present. Nicaraguan rock music is born in a sociopolitical context of extreme economic instability and during a crisis of values in the last decade of the 20th century, with the end of the Sandinista Revolution and the establishment of neoliberal government. The young cultural movement, and rock in particular, constructs a discourse dissident from the patriarchal and capitalist hegemony and interrogates the social reality ...

La Violencia: Los Semas De Rasgos Diegéticos Y Miméticos De La Literatura Colombiana De La Segunda Mitad Del Siglo Xx., Omar Fernando Sánchez Forero 2017 University of Nebraska

La Violencia: Los Semas De Rasgos Diegéticos Y Miméticos De La Literatura Colombiana De La Segunda Mitad Del Siglo Xx., Omar Fernando Sánchez Forero

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Los fenómenos de la realidad tienen repercusión en la ficción literaria. La ficción se vale de elementos reales para develar las problemáticas sociales. Podría ser comprendido como una forma de decir “verdades usando mentiras; la mentira de los personajes, con una trama muy real” (Monroy 3). Es oportuno entonces analizar la posible relación casi simbiótica existente entre la realidad y la ficción, presente en la praxis literaria colombiana de gran parte del siglo XX, e incluso de nuestros días. Argüimos que los personajes de las obras utilizan semas, o rasgos de significado distintivo mínimos, tanto diegéticos como miméticos que caracterizan ...


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

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 ...
