“New Directions” In Translation Studies: Norms And Industrial Constraints In Linguistic Adaptation, Laurena Bernabo Dec 2016

“New Directions” In Translation Studies: Norms And Industrial Constraints In Linguistic Adaptation, Laurena Bernabo

Laurena Bernabo

Given the complex multidirectional global flows of programming that mark the current era, we must interrogate the power dynamics at play when American programming is translated for foreign audiences. I do so in this project using the Latin American dub of the U.S. television series Glee as a case study. Beyond comparing and contrasting Glee and its Latin American dub, this project has two primary interventions within the field of global television studies. First, this project modifies theorizations of dubbing norms and constraints to include industrial elements. I build on prior research into technical and cultural aspects of adaptation ...


Mrs. Mcintyre’S Fateful Struggles: The Innocent Bystander, Mrs. Mcintyre, Is Inherently Good In Flannery O’Connor’S “The Displaced Person”, Ruby T. Zimmerman Nov 2016

Mrs. Mcintyre’S Fateful Struggles: The Innocent Bystander, Mrs. Mcintyre, Is Inherently Good In Flannery O’Connor’S “The Displaced Person”, Ruby T. Zimmerman

Russell Library Undergraduate Research Award

In Flannery O’Connor’s short story “The Displaced Person” there are many themes that pertain to religion, but in addition O’Connor develops secular concepts throughout the story. One such character, Mrs. McIntyre comes across to the readers as a self centered, racist, and xenophobic woman. She treats her tenant farmers, the Shortleys, Astor, Sulk, and the Guizacs with great disrespect and wants to or threatens to dismiss all of them at different points throughout the story. Critics of Mrs. McIntyre, such as Miles Orvell author of Invisible Parade: The Fiction of Flannery O’Connor, argues that her character ...


Chinese Cubans: Transnational Origins And Revolutionary Integration, Kevin J. Morris Oct 2016

Chinese Cubans: Transnational Origins And Revolutionary Integration, Kevin J. Morris

Russell Library Undergraduate Research Award

As a transnational group, Chinese Cubans or “colonos asiaticos” existed neither within the black-white racial binary standard in Cuban culture nor within the niche this paradigm provided to "mulatto" Cubans or other “mixed” Cubans of African-descent. While assimilation and various racial re-classifications offered some degree of integration, Chinese Cubans often appeared as wholly foreign to Cuban society until the extensive participation of Chinese Cubans in the Communist Revolution. This paper demonstrates that the extensive participation of Chinese Cubans in the Communist Revolution as well as implemented Revolutionary racial policies finally legitimized and normalized the Cuban peoplehood and nationhood of Chinese ...


A Shelf Of Reds, Rowan Cahill Dr, Terry Irving Sep 2016

A Shelf Of Reds, Rowan Cahill Dr, Terry Irving

Terry Irving

These are some of the books by Australian radical historians that have meant a lot to us as scholars and activists writing and exploring radical history for ten years together, and for much longer separately. We have selected books that either never made it into the academic history canon or, if they did, are now neglected.


Strength And Weakness: Gendered Dualities In Chopin's Polonaise-Fantaisie Op. 61, Hannah C. Young Jan 2016

Strength And Weakness: Gendered Dualities In Chopin's Polonaise-Fantaisie Op. 61, Hannah C. Young

Undergraduate Honors Theses

My thesis examines the ways in which Chopin's music is understood as gendered through an examination of his Polonaise-Fantaisie Op. 61. I explore the associations of the titular genres with musical gestures perceived as either feminine or masculine, and the ways in which Chopin inverts listeners' gendered expectations. This leads into a discussion on how an understanding of gender in this piece might influence one's performance decisions.


Review Of Sherry F. Colb And Michael C. Dorf Beating Hearts: Abortion And Animal Rights, Nathan M. Nobis Dec 2015

Review Of Sherry F. Colb And Michael C. Dorf Beating Hearts: Abortion And Animal Rights, Nathan M. Nobis

Nathan M. Nobis, Ph.D.


In this book[1], law professors Sherry F. Colb and Michael C. Dorf argue that:
  1. many non-human animals, at least vertebrates, are morally considerable and prima facie wrong to harm because they are sentient, i.e., conscious and capable of experiencing pains and pleasures;
  2. most aborted human fetuses are not sentient -- their brains and nervous systems are not yet developed enough for sentience -- and so the motivating moral concern for animals doesn't apply to most abortions[2];
  3. later abortions affecting sentient fetuses, while rare, raise serious moral concerns, but these abortions -- like all abortions -- invariably involve the interests and ...


The Final Showdown: 7 Men From Now (1956), Elaine P. Lennon Dr Nov 2013

The Final Showdown: 7 Men From Now (1956), Elaine P. Lennon Dr

Dr Elaine Lennon

Plot unity in the Western 7 Men from Now (1956) derives from classical tenets of story structure and simplifies the narrative syntax so that every action relates to the central theme of revenge. The film’s hero is a corruption of the traditional cowboy and exemplifies the mid-1950s transition of the genre to more adult representation, leading the Western into its mature phase.


Year Of The Gun: 1950 And The Rebirth Of The Western, Elaine P. Lennon Dr Nov 2013

Year Of The Gun: 1950 And The Rebirth Of The Western, Elaine P. Lennon Dr

Dr Elaine Lennon

In 1950 two Westerns were released that marked the genre’s entry to a new mature phase questioning the role of violence. Their screenplays contain templates of inner reflection and psychological complexity that would forever change the direction of the category.


The Joycean Sublime, Anthony Moreno Jun 2013

The Joycean Sublime, Anthony Moreno

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of my thesis is to analyze notions of the sublime in James Joyce’s Ulysses and how the sublime is evoked and presented in Joyce’s work. The present work will examine concepts of the sublime from the Classical and Medieval period, through the Enlightenment, and into the Romantic era to develop my own definition. Placing the sublime in a historical perspective allows me to discover how the sublime is at work through Joyce’s creative use of complex narrative approaches. The beauty of aesthetic perfection was achieved by employing all of Joyce’s artistic faculties. My thesis ...


Federal Prohibition Of Medical Marijuana In Pain Management: Undue, Unimportant, And Irrational, Michael L. Timm Jr. Mar 2013

Federal Prohibition Of Medical Marijuana In Pain Management: Undue, Unimportant, And Irrational, Michael L. Timm Jr.

Michael L. Timm Jr.

This paper provides a review of the historical right of the people of the United States to seek, and use, alternative medicinal treatment options in the realm of managing both the pain and symptoms associated with a variety of illnesses. The focus then turns to the right involved: a patient’s ability to employ medical marijuana instead of a commonly prescribed narcotic or mass-market non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesic (NSAIA) drug to manage pain and increase quality of life under the advice and consent of a treating physician. No one article has argued that there is a fundamental, important, or at least ...


The Olympic Games And The Secret Cold War: The U.S. Government And The Propaganda Campaign Against Communist Sport, 1950-1960, Toby C. Rider Aug 2011

The Olympic Games And The Secret Cold War: The U.S. Government And The Propaganda Campaign Against Communist Sport, 1950-1960, Toby C. Rider

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In the aftermath of the Second World War, the Soviet Union and its East European satellites used international sport as a diplomatic tool to convince the world that communism was a vibrant and superior political ideology. This study explores the U.S. government’s effort to counter the communist “sports offensive.” In particular, it is demonstrated that the U.S. government harnessed the Olympic Games as a platform to wage a propaganda campaign against communist sport during the early years of the Cold War. Based on declassified documents and a range of previously unexamined archival material, this dissertation argues that ...

Critiquing The Elite In The Barataria And 'Ricote' Food Episodes In Don Quijote Ii, Carolyn A. Nadeau Dec 2005

Critiquing The Elite In The Barataria And 'Ricote' Food Episodes In Don Quijote Ii, Carolyn A. Nadeau

Carolyn A Nadeau

In Don Quixote II the multiple food episodes revolve around Sancho Panza who experiences and discusses the changing face of Spain's gastronomy. From simple peasant food to elaborate noble banquets, from a village wedding celebration to spontaneous roadside meals, and from detailed food preparations to post prandial conversations, the visceral Sancho experiences fully sensual pleasures of consumption. Characters in the novel, specifically Don Quixote and the doctor Pedro Recio who attends to Sancho while governor of Barataria, reveal cultural assumptions that consuming certain foods was a sign of social identity and maintained proper social equilibrium. In addition to confronting ...
