Las Montañas Desheredadas: Lo Fantástico Y Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) Como Docuficción, Mario Sánchez Gumiel May 2018

Las Montañas Desheredadas: Lo Fantástico Y Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) Como Docuficción, Mario Sánchez Gumiel

Nomenclatura: aproximaciones a los estudios hispánicos

En este ensayo me propongo argumentar dos ideas: la primera, cómo, pese a su conocido e incuestionable carácter subversivo, Las Hurdes (Luis Buñuel, 1933) respeta en verdad las convenciones del género documental y, en consecuencia, cómo el cineasta calandino, a pesar de sus juegos formales con el surrealismo, era un hombre conocedor de (y alineado con) la práctica vigente de tales códigos genéricos. La segunda, que por medio de dicho respeto escrupuloso a las convenciones del documental, Buñuel consigue articular ese momento que Tzvetan Todorov (1938-2017) localiza alrededor de la duda que, entre creencia y descreencia, surge hacia aquello que ...


Modeling Deponency In Germanic Preterite-Present Verbs Using Datr, Marie G. Bourgerie Hunter Jan 2017

Modeling Deponency In Germanic Preterite-Present Verbs Using Datr, Marie G. Bourgerie Hunter

Theses and Dissertations--Linguistics

In certain Germanic languages, there is a group of verbs called preterite-present verbs that are often viewed as irregular, but in fact behave very predictably. They exhibit a morphological phenomenon called deponency, often in conjunction with another morphological phenomenon called heteroclisis. I examine the preterite-present verbs of three different languages: Old Norse, Modern Icelandic, and Modern German. Initially, I approach them from a historical perspective and then seek to reconcile their morphology with the modern perspective. A criteria is established for a canonical preterite-present verb, and then using a lexical programming language called DATR, I create code that generates the ...

Re-Thinking Paris At The Fin-De-Siècle: A New Vision Of Parisian Musical Culture From The Perspective Of Gabriel Astruc (1854-1938), Cesar A. Leal Jan 2014

Re-Thinking Paris At The Fin-De-Siècle: A New Vision Of Parisian Musical Culture From The Perspective Of Gabriel Astruc (1854-1938), Cesar A. Leal

Theses and Dissertations--Music

Gabriel Astruc (1864-1938), a French impresario of Jewish background, is mostly known for his collaborative work as an impresario with Sergei Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes. His role within Parisian musical culture at the fin de siècle, however, was much broader. He was a critic, creator of a leading periodical, producer of musical and circus events, music publisher, and associate of many important cultural figures of his day. Although Astruc has been mentioned in scholarly literature, his multifaceted activities have never been carefully studied.

Following the revisionist initiatives of previous scholars (e.g., Pasler, Huebner, Garafola, Fauser), this project offers ...


Reconstructing Indo-European Syllabification, Andrew M. Byrd Jun 2010

Reconstructing Indo-European Syllabification, Andrew M. Byrd

Linguistics Faculty Publications

The chief concern of this dissertation is to investigate a fundamental, yet unsolved problem within the phonology of Proto-Indo-European (PIE): the process of syllabification. I show that by analyzing the much more easily reconstructable word-edge clusters we may predict which types of consonant clusters can occur word-medially, provided that we assume a special status for certain consonants at word’s edge. Having thus analyzed the entire PIE phonological system, I believe I have developed the first working hypothesis of Indo-European syllabification, which we may now use to pre- dict which types of syllable-driven rules of consonant deletion and vowel epenthesis ...
