The Prospects For Change: The Question Of Justice In A Law & Society Framework, Michael W. Raphael Jun 2016

The Prospects For Change: The Question Of Justice In A Law & Society Framework, Michael W. Raphael

Graduate Student Publications and Research

What is the law and society framework and where has it gotten us? A student in a classroom might raise their hand and offer "understanding legal pluralism" as a possible answer. However, the conceptual problem with legal pluralism is the coexistence of potentially conflicting bases of justification. Given this, desiring to understand how the law shapes the structural underpinnings of whichever "legal" phenomena and its "ongoing transformation", is nevertheless an immense achievement that stops short of its underlying goal – the achievement of human dignity through human rights. For example, to talk about 'multi-stakeholder consultations' and other pithy phrases that describe ...


Ideology, Access, And Status: Spanish-English Bilinguals In The Foreign-Language Classroom, Michael E. Rolland Jun 2016

Ideology, Access, And Status: Spanish-English Bilinguals In The Foreign-Language Classroom, Michael E. Rolland

Graduate Student Publications and Research

Spanish language teaching in US higher education is today generally divided between ‘foreign language’ courses for novice learners and ‘heritage language’ courses for Hispanic/Latinx students with some knowledge of the language. However, ‘heritage’ students are a linguistically diverse group, and are also often enrolled at institutions where heritage courses are not offered. Little research to date has studied ‘heritage’ speakers enrolled in ‘foreign’ language courses. For this study I conducted semi-structured interviews to explore the affective and ideological characteristics of bilingual students enrolled in elementary Spanish courses. As the literature suggests, I find that these students have a generally ...

A "Digital Wasteland": Modernist Periodical Studies, Digital Remediation, And Copyright, Roxanne Shirazi Mar 2015

A "Digital Wasteland": Modernist Periodical Studies, Digital Remediation, And Copyright, Roxanne Shirazi

Graduate Student Publications and Research

The nonlinearity of magazine reading is an important consideration in the emerging field of modernist periodical studies, one that deserves greater attention in the development of digital collections. As modernist scholars begin to generate a theoretical foundation for periodical studies it becomes evident that digital technologies must go beyond reproducing the printed page. This paper reviews recent scholarship and digital projects in modernist periodical studies and introduces non-consumptive research methods as a partial solution to the post-1923 copyright conundrum.


Young Activists, New Movements: Contemporary Chinese Queer Feminism And Transnational Genealogies, Wen Liu, Ana Huang, Jingchao Ma Feb 2015

Young Activists, New Movements: Contemporary Chinese Queer Feminism And Transnational Genealogies, Wen Liu, Ana Huang, Jingchao Ma

Graduate Student Publications and Research

As young, diasporic feminist activist–scholars involved in queer feminist move- ments across China, Taiwan, and New York City, we reflect on the emergent ‘‘new’’ queer feminism in China today, with its amorphous cohesion and dramatic impact, as highlighted by the subway protest. Drawing on transnational feminism, we are part of this latest ‘‘new’’ response to growing global inequalities and neo-colonial feminist discourses that calls for a critical re-engagement with global politics (Grewal & Kaplan, 2001). However, as activists who center our political involvement in Asia, ‘‘transnationalism’’ is not only a vision, but an already exist- ing state, as we see ...


The Two Indexical Uses Theory Of Proper Names And Frege's Puzzle, Daniel S. Shabasson Jan 2015

The Two Indexical Uses Theory Of Proper Names And Frege's Puzzle, Daniel S. Shabasson

Graduate Student Publications and Research

This paper is an earlier version of my 2017 dissertation, “The Two Indexical Uses Theory of Proper Names and Frege's Puzzle.” The final version can be found at https://academicworks.cuny.edu/gc_etds/2605/.

To solve Frege’s puzzle, I develop a novel theory of proper names, the “Two Indexical Uses Theory” of proper names (the “TIUT”), according to which proper names are used as indexicals. I distinguish two types of indexical uses: (1) ‘Millian’ uses on which a proper name merely refers (contributing its referent alone to the proposition expressed); and (2) ‘Conception-indicating’ uses on which a proper ...

"The Problem Of Locomotion": Infrastructure And Automobility In Three Postcolonial Urban Nigerian Novels, Danica B. Savonick Jan 2015

"The Problem Of Locomotion": Infrastructure And Automobility In Three Postcolonial Urban Nigerian Novels, Danica B. Savonick

Graduate Student Publications and Research

This essay analyzes automobility in three postcolonial urban Nigerian novels: the fantasy of self-propulsion that subtends a colonial modernity materialized through the erection of urban infrastructure. Tracing the disjuncture between automobility and infrastructure—the “problem of locomotion” (Achebe)—reveals the inextricability of mobility, modernity, urbanism, and colonial violence even into Nigeria’s formally postcolonial period. By exploring how characters both invest in and move beyond inherited colonial narratives, these novels challenge top-down images of Lagos, instead depicting it as a city “otherwise fashioned” (Abani) from their characters’ perspectives on what it feels like to dwell and sell on the streets.

Estudio Y Edición De Las "Poesías Varias" De José Navarro (1654), Almudena Vidorreta

Graduate Student Publications and Research

José Navarro Bermuz, an Aragonese intellectual who worked for the Italian family of the Ludovisi, was known for his active participation in the literary academies and poetic competitions of his time, and for his collection of Poesías varias. My research entails an in-depth study of the intellectual and political landscape of the second half of the 17th century in which Navarro lived and wrote. My aim was emphasize the significance of his literary production within the context of Spanish Early Modern literature, together with the critical edition of both his Poesías varias, and the Loa para la comedia de la ...


El Vicio De La Utopía. Un Acercamiento A La Poética De Emilio Gastón, Almudena Vidorreta Jan 2013

El Vicio De La Utopía. Un Acercamiento A La Poética De Emilio Gastón, Almudena Vidorreta

Graduate Student Publications and Research

La poesía de Emilio Gastón había merecido hasta el momento escasos trabajos de investigación por parte de la crítica, que se limitaba a remitir a las mismas fuentes generales sobre literatura aragonesa. Este prólogo, que presenta una nueva edición de El despertar del hombre selva, libro publicado por vez primera en 1987, así como una continuación del mismo, presenta una temática actual, dentro de los parámetros de la llamada “poesía ecológica”. A su vez, su lenguaje se construye a base de abundantes metáforas que proceden del léxico del Derecho. A partir del estudio de este libro se propone un acercamiento ...

Enfermedad Y Sátira Contra Los Médicos En Las Poesías Varias De José Navarro (1654), Almudena Vidorreta Jan 2013

Enfermedad Y Sátira Contra Los Médicos En Las Poesías Varias De José Navarro (1654), Almudena Vidorreta

Graduate Student Publications and Research

La originalidad de algunos poetas satíricos del Siglo de Oro ha querido ser justificada por la crítica únicamente en la reformulación de un tema tan antiguo como el de la sátira, de la medicina en este caso. Sin embargo, la imitatio de los clásicos no implica la falta de contacto con la experiencia cotidiana, cuyo análisis ha de ser considerado un aspecto ineludible a la hora de apreciar la vituperación de personajes y acontecimientos ligados al autor. A pesar de que la crítica ha querido dar primacía a las fuentes literarias, a los modelos de Luciano y el erasmismo, y ...


Phenomenological Theories Of Crime, Peter K. Manning, Michael W. Raphael Jan 2012

Phenomenological Theories Of Crime, Peter K. Manning, Michael W. Raphael

Graduate Student Publications and Research

The distinctive aspect of phenomenological theories of crime is that they are based upon a stated epistemology: how things are known and a specific ontology—the nature of social reality. This specificity aligns itself with neo-Kantian concern with forms of knowing, interpretation, and meaning, as well as with 20th-century concern with perception, cognition, and the framing of events. While there are influences of phenomenological thinking on varieties of theorizing, such as symbolic interactionism, critical theory, queer theory, and gender-based theories of crime, these ideas are refractions and are inconsistent in their reference to and understanding of the foundational phenomenological works ...


Acts Of Recognition: Gesture And National Identity In Agnes De Mille's 'Civil War Ballet', Ryan Donovan Jan 2012

Acts Of Recognition: Gesture And National Identity In Agnes De Mille's 'Civil War Ballet', Ryan Donovan

Graduate Student Publications and Research

Through both her dances and writings Agnes de Mille explored what it means to be American. I argue that, in addition to the explicitly America-themed material de Mille chose, her choreography performs national identity through its use of gesture – informed by de Mille’s interest in folk dance and the collective unconscious. When looking at much of de Mille’s choreography, one is visually struck by its Americanness. It is this act of recognition that begins this enquiry: how does one see de Mille’s choreography and recognize its intrinsic Americanness? How did de Mille’s choreographic process allow for ...

Como Si Fuese Una Memoria, Trasfondo Común En Mausoleo Y Escalada, De Jesús Hilario Tundidor, Almudena Vidorreta Jan 2009

Como Si Fuese Una Memoria, Trasfondo Común En Mausoleo Y Escalada, De Jesús Hilario Tundidor, Almudena Vidorreta

Graduate Student Publications and Research

Estas páginas exploran dos de las obras del poeta Jesús Hilario Tundidor, desde la perspectiva de la imagen tradicional de la peregrinatio vitae, tan importante en la literatura española del Siglo de Oro, así como en el seno de las relaciones entre la biografía y la literatura. El poeta se dibuja como un lector reflexivo de la poesía clásica, de cuya pluma se desprende una constante preocupación teórica por la naturaleza de la palabra y el lenguaje. Se trata del único estudio filológico dedicado a la obra Escalada (2006), que ayuda a comprender mejor la trayectoria del poeta.


Strokes Of Existence: The Connection Of All Things, Mari Gorman Jan 2007

Strokes Of Existence: The Connection Of All Things, Mari Gorman

Graduate Student Publications and Research

Acted or real—and all life is real whether one is acting or not—the common denominator and consistent, ubiquitous reality of life and all behavior is that it manifests in the form of relationships on all scales. But what is a relationship? Until now, the answer to this question has not been sufficiently known. As a result of many years of empirical research that began with the aim of discovering what is going on in a gifted actor when s/he is playing a character that can be observed and experienced as a living, intuitive being, and based on ...
