Haunted Stories, Haunted Selves: Ghosts In Latin American Jewish Literature, Charlotte Gartenberg 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Haunted Stories, Haunted Selves: Ghosts In Latin American Jewish Literature, Charlotte Gartenberg

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This study approaches haunting in Latin American Jewish Literature from the 1990s through the 2010s as it appears in works by and featuring the descendants of Jewish immigrants. In these decades, this trope is frequently invoked as both a literary metaphor and a critical lens. It arises from and activates a number of themes common in trauma studies and in postmodernism, such as loss, the transmission of memory, our relationships to the past, the rupturing of traditional realities and questions of what can be known and represented. It is particularly prevalent amongst those who pen and protagonize the works examined ...


Las Novelas De La Violencia Y La Revolución En La Formación Del Frente Nacional En Colombia Y El Estado Revolucionario Mexicano, Luis J. Henao Uribe 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Las Novelas De La Violencia Y La Revolución En La Formación Del Frente Nacional En Colombia Y El Estado Revolucionario Mexicano, Luis J. Henao Uribe

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In the face of the social and political crises that were both cause and consequence of the Mexican Revolution and the period in Colombia known as “la Violencia”, two state projects were consolidated and dominated the field of power throughout the 20th century. The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in Mexico and the bipartisan coalition of the National Front in Colombia made use of the notions of revolution and violence, respectively, to legitimize their nation projects. This project investigates the role of the novel in the formation of these two new founding myths, from the urgent literary works that were written ...


Cuentistas Mexicanos Modernos, Entre Tópicos, Cánones Y Creación Crítica, Lourdes Castañón 2018 Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana

Cuentistas Mexicanos Modernos, Entre Tópicos, Cánones Y Creación Crítica, Lourdes Castañón

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

Cuentistas mexicanos modernos is a short story anthology of fiction stories that bring together Mexican authors of the 1950’s. This anthology was compiled by Emmanuel Carballo, a Mexican literary critic, journalist and promotor of cultural affairs during the second half of the twentieth century. This analysis focuses on the prologue and profiles broached in the anthology, as well as on the very concept of anthology. Alfonso Reyes, Alberto Porqueras, and Justo Serna provide the theoretical basis for the study, which sets aside the stories gathered in the publication and concentrates mainly on topics which Carballo treated, like Mexicanism and ...


La Economía De La Violencia: La Ciudad Juárez Y El Mercado Libre De La Muerte, Kritika Amanjee 2018 Union College

La Economía De La Violencia: La Ciudad Juárez Y El Mercado Libre De La Muerte, Kritika Amanjee

Honors Theses

This thesis explores the utilization of human life to further the parallel economies of manufacture and narco-trafficking in Mexico. It begins by recalling the impacts of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Mexico’s local economies. Shifts in economic dynamics that resulted from NAFTA internally displaced thousands of impoverished Mexicans, ultimately pushing them into the growing economies of manufacture and narco-trafficking. The manufacture industry and its effects on the common people are examined with a specific focus on Ciudad Juárez, a border city in the state of Chihuahua. The growth of maquiladoras attracted thousands of young women to ...


La Genara: La Libertad Falsa De La Mujer Elite En México, Emily Sullivan 2018 Union College

La Genara: La Libertad Falsa De La Mujer Elite En México, Emily Sullivan

Honors Theses

The goal of feminism is to ensure the equality of all genders. This goal means that women are supposed to be seen as equal to men in society. However, despite the many feminist efforts to bring this equality into reality, many in the world still believe that women are inferior to men. This belief stems from historical oppression of women that has continued up until modern day times. In Mexico, there is still strong beliefs that exist that prevent women from achieving liberation and freedom in society. Ideas related to traditional family values, machismo, and internalized misogyny all act as ...


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 ...

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.


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 ...

The research for this presentation will explore the differences in the field of physical therapy between the United States and various countries in South America to compare and evaluate the preparation and implementation of physical therapy care, to formulate recommendations for possible improvements and pursue further research. The United States and selected South American countries have starkly different economic, social, and political backgrounds which impact the way in which physical therapy is administered and received. This allows for comparisons to be made between each respective model of physical therapy, creating a running dialog on how these programs can improve and ...


Artesana De Sí Misma: Gabriela Mistral, Una Intelectual En Cuerpo Y Palabra, Claudia Cabello Hutt 2018 Purdue University

Artesana De Sí Misma: Gabriela Mistral, Una Intelectual En Cuerpo Y Palabra, Claudia Cabello Hutt

Purdue University Press Book Previews

Artesana de sí misma by Claudia Cabello Hutt reevaluates the place of Nobel laureate Gabriela Mistral in the literary and intellectual history of Latin America, illuminating and filling a number of lingering voids in the study of this canonical figure. Cabello Hutt introduces readers to Mistral’s vast but scarcely studied journalistic prose as well as her unpublished manuscripts, letters, and images held in the United States and in newly opened Chilean archives. Moving beyond her amply discussed poetry, Cabello Hutt demonstrates that Mistral’s essays, visual representations, and gender performance are key to understanding Mistral’s self-construction as a ...


Gabriel Celaya: Vanguardia Y Rehumanización, Ramón Muñiz Sarmiento 2018 Florida International University

Gabriel Celaya: Vanguardia Y Rehumanización, Ramón Muñiz Sarmiento

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

En este trabajo se analizan, a través de una selección de textos poéticos, las dos etapas fundamentales del poeta vasco. Gabriel Celaya comienza su producción lírica bajo el amparo y la influencia de la estética vanguardista, aspecto que posteriormente cambia, teniendo en cuenta el proceso de rehumanización que vive la poesía española e hispánica en sentido general a partir de la década de 1930. Con una visión trasatlántica, intento comparar los poemas de Celaya con los de sus contemporáneos españoles y latinoamericanos, con el fin de establecer un parangón entre él y sus colegas, y así explicar las diferentes influencias ...


El Criollo Y La Esclavitud En Cecilia Valdés O La Loma Del Ángel: Potencia, Resistencia Y Empoderamiento, Elvira Aballí Morell 2018 Vanderbilt University

El Criollo Y La Esclavitud En Cecilia Valdés O La Loma Del Ángel: Potencia, Resistencia Y Empoderamiento, Elvira Aballí Morell

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

En “El criollo y la esclavitud en Cecilia Valdés o la Loma del Ángel: potencia, resistencia y empoderamiento” analizo las concepciones de lo criollo, principalmente desde el mestizaje en Cecilia Valdés (1882) de Cirilo Villaverde. Propongo una lectura diferenciada de lo criollo, teniendo en consideración que la exégesis de lo criollo desde los predios de lo caribeño presenta algunas divergencias con relación al concepto de lo criollo manejado para la masa continental. Privilegio, igualmente, una concepción de lo criollo desde lo femenino. Creo que una obra como Cecilia Valdés posee suficiente valor historiográfico como para demostrar que existe una visión ...


La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa 2018 UCLA Extension

La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa

SouthEast Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

Nos proponemos realizar un análisis del film argentino Un oso rojo (2002, dirigido por Israel Adrián Caetano). Un punto de entrada para el análisis nos remite al concepto mismo de lo que es una ciudad, tal como Lewis Mumford lo expone en su canónico artículo “What is a city?”. Si la ciudad se constituye, al decir de Mumford, en espacio simbólico de “unidad colectiva”, en donde los hombres realizan sus actividades mas “útiles”, las preguntas a las que nos llevan estos conceptos serán ¿cuál es el estatuto de una ciudad recorrida por la violencia? ¿Cómo el espacio refiere y significa ...

Teatro Por La Identidad: Derechos Humanos E Identidad En El Teatro Argentino De La Posdictadura, Grace O'Donnell 2018 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Teatro Por La Identidad: Derechos Humanos E Identidad En El Teatro Argentino De La Posdictadura, Grace O'Donnell

Senior Theses and Projects

This research project analyzes the political and social effect of Teatro por la identidad’s most prominent productions A propósito de la duda (2000) by Patricia Zangaro, and El archivista (2001) by Héctor Levy-Daniel, during the post dictatorship era in Argentine theater. I will draw attention to the military dictatorship (la Junta Militar) who seized power from 1974 to 1983, and was responsible for the disappearance of 30,000 Argentines and the displacement of over 500 children. In response to these violations, the performances have led to a resurgence in the establishment of human rights organizations in Argentina. Through the ...


“La Culpa Es De Los Tlaxcaltecas”: Gender, The Burden Of Blame, And A Re-Examination Of The Myth Of La Malinche, Erin M. Lanza 2018 Gettysburg College

“La Culpa Es De Los Tlaxcaltecas”: Gender, The Burden Of Blame, And A Re-Examination Of The Myth Of La Malinche, Erin M. Lanza

Student Publications

This paper explores Elena Garro’s short story “La culpa es de los tlaxcaltecas.” Supplementing close readings with analyses drawn from relevant authors and theorists, I highlight the key ideas regarding gender, identity, memory, and history that Garro weaves into her text, and I consider Garro’s emphasis on patriarchal control, the internalization of female culpability for the Spanish Conquest of Mexico, and women’s role in constructing and reconstructing historical discourses. By travelling into her own and Mexico’s past, Laura Aldama, one of the main female protagonists in the story, not only challenges gendered histories but also reveals ...


Resistencia Y Asimilación: El Espacio Liminal En El Teatro Cubanoamericano, Michael Mardoian 2018 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut

Resistencia Y Asimilación: El Espacio Liminal En El Teatro Cubanoamericano, Michael Mardoian

Senior Theses and Projects

The Cuban Revolution that took place in 1959 sparked a mass movement of Cubans to leave the island known as the Cuban Diaspora. To live in another place, a country and within a culture drastically different is a continual internal and external confrontation that many Cubans face living in the United States. Immigration and exile are central themes that emerge from Cuban literature and art. In the field of theater, many Cuban and Cuban-American playwrights such as Matías Montes Huidobro (1931), Alberto Pedro (1954-2005) and María Irene Fornés (1930), have illustrated the effects of immigration and exile on the displaced ...

Desplazamiento Y Distanciamiento Lingüístico En El Teatro De Víctor Hugo Rascón Banda: La Mujer Que Cayó Del Cielo, Vy T. Phan

Senior Theses and Projects

In the 1980s, Rita Quintero, a Tarahumara from northern Mexico, was detained in a mental hospital in Larned, Kansas for twelve years because of ignorance and maltreatment from Kansas state officials and health care workers. As a result of their inability and lack of effort to understand her culture, the doctors diagnosed Rita with schizophrenia and forced her to take psychiatric medications. Rita’s case eventually caught national and international attention, especially through the work of the Mexican playwright, Victor Hugo Rascón Banda (1948-2008) who produced the theater piece La mujer que cayó del cielo (2000) to detail the actual ...
