Hit By Cupid's Arrow: Hidden Violence In Love Metaphors, Isis Dornbrook 2022 Portland State University

Hit By Cupid's Arrow: Hidden Violence In Love Metaphors, Isis Dornbrook

Anthós

Love is an emotion that typically brings joy. However, the ways in which society talks about love suggest otherwise. The process of metaphor analysis makes the violence in societal expressions of love salient. Additionally, metaphor analysis shows that violent metaphors can inform the way people interact with one another throughout the stages of relationship formation, such as using metaphors to justify sexual and other types of physical abuse. Thus, this paper argues that metaphors, by shaping our attitudes and expectations about love, sex, and relationships, have observable social and cultural implications.


Cultural Familiarity Through Mentorship: A Way To Increase People Of Color Retention Within Interpreting Education And The Profession, Valerie Manseau 2022 Western Oregon University

Cultural Familiarity Through Mentorship: A Way To Increase People Of Color Retention Within Interpreting Education And The Profession, Valerie Manseau

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

The goal of this study is to explore one way to increase the retention of People of Color (PoC) within the interpreting field in hopes of increasing numbers within Interpreter Training Programs (ITPs). Short term mentoring experiences consisted of four stages with various mentors of different backgrounds. I gathered reflective data via journaling pre- and post-mentorship meetings. This is a personal narrative from a recent ITP graduate entry-level interpreter who is continuing to seek mentorship and growth while starting in the professional field. Interpreter mentoring for this project consists of discussions centered around interpreting skills, decision making, self-care aspects, self-identity ...


Examining The Divide: Understanding The Perceptions And Relationships Between Community And Educational Interpreters, Jordan Ward 2022 Western Oregon University

Examining The Divide: Understanding The Perceptions And Relationships Between Community And Educational Interpreters, Jordan Ward

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

Interpersonal relationships lay the foundation for the work of ASL–English interpreters. Professional relationships can have a significant impact on one’s behaviors, physical health, and psychological health, all of which can have impact on the work of an interpreter. This thesis explores the perceptions of, and relationships between, interpreters working primarily in community and K-12 educational settings. Prior to this study, no known research has been conducted examining the nature of interpersonal relationships between professional interpreters working in settings different from their own. An exploratory study was conducted through a survey and an interview to understand if and how ...


Esteem, Why Should We Care? The Importance Of Work-Esteem In Our Field, Our Work, And Ourselves, Katrina N. Wadsworth 2022 Western Oregon University

Esteem, Why Should We Care? The Importance Of Work-Esteem In Our Field, Our Work, And Ourselves, Katrina N. Wadsworth

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

Esteem is an important part of our lives as human beings both personally, with selfesteem, and professionally, with work-esteem. Work-esteem is important to the work of interpreters, and it can also affect the work produced by interpreters. Esteem encompasses a lot of different aspects, but this research on work-esteem focuses on the theories of Maslow and his hierarchy of needs of motivational theory and Rosenberg’s self-esteem theory and the corresponding self-esteem scale. The literature review explores Maslow’s and Rosenberg’s connection to work-esteem, self-esteem’s impact on work, life experiences impact on esteem, work-esteem as a perception/outcome ...


Playfully Expanding Interpreter Development, Keyanda Hall 2022 Western Oregon University

Playfully Expanding Interpreter Development, Keyanda Hall

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

According to research, new experiences that start from creating interactions such as role playing, stimulus, or group discussions are a result of participant actively learning (Terehoff, 2002). The focal point of this study is exploring a method of experiential learning while adults students learn new language. Basic understanding of early language acquisition and second language acquisition is used to better understand how and why play can be a much-needed component in the classroom. The experiential method of learning through play has been used to gain perspective about adult learning preferences in the interpreting field. The participants were American Sign Language ...


¿Tú No Entiendes? Medical Interpreters And Dominican Spanish, Ashley Lilón 2022 Western Oregon University

¿Tú No Entiendes? Medical Interpreters And Dominican Spanish, Ashley Lilón

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

Spanish interpreters working in health care can often be expected to handle a wide variety of accents and dialects though they may not always be familiar with the specific dialects they are interpreting. Codes of ethics and standards of practice are lacking in solutions that interpreters can employ when working with unfamiliar dialects, outside of recusing themselves from assignments or managing with clarifications (California Healthcare Interpreting Association, 2002; Hernandez-Iverson, 2010; National Council on Interpreting in Health Care, 2004). There is currently little to no research available on medical interpreters’ management of unfamiliar dialects and also limited to no educational opportunities ...


Assessing The Accessibility Of The Judicial System's Arrest-To-Parole Timeline For People Who Are D/Deaf And Hard-Of-Hearing, Evelyn G. Birnbaum 2022 Portland State University

Assessing The Accessibility Of The Judicial System's Arrest-To-Parole Timeline For People Who Are D/Deaf And Hard-Of-Hearing, Evelyn G. Birnbaum

University Honors Theses

The judicial system is inaccessible to many groups of people for a variety of reasons, one of those populations being the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing community (DHH). This community faces prejudice and discrimination in many institutions because of their identity, but within the justice system, this prejudice is compounded and controlled by poor legislation and either the lack of, or barriers to, effective communication. At every point in the chronological timeline from getting arrested to achieving parole, individuals who are d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing face discrimination and obstacles that their hearing counterparts do not. The discrimination ...


Bilingual Behaviors: Learning Context In Second Language Acquisition, Sydney M. Fulton 2022 University of South Dakota

Bilingual Behaviors: Learning Context In Second Language Acquisition, Sydney M. Fulton

Honors Thesis

Language separates human beings from other species in the animal kingdom. Not only does language provide humans with a means to communicate, but it represents one’s family, cultural identity, and personality. There are over six thousand spoken languages in the world today, and around half of the earth’s inhabitants speak more than one language. First language acquisition is a natural process for all humans that begins before birth. The human brain can acquire multiple languages during infancy, but many people acquire a second language after the brain has fully developed. Knowledge of more than one language allows one ...


El Nuevo Cuento Latinoamericano: El ‘Terror Aparente Y Externo’ Versus El ‘Terror Real E Interno’ En Pelea De Gallos Y Grita De María Fernanda Ampuero, Y Las Voladoras De Mónica Ojeda, Alejandra Anahi Gaeta 2022 Texas A&M International University

El Nuevo Cuento Latinoamericano: El ‘Terror Aparente Y Externo’ Versus El ‘Terror Real E Interno’ En Pelea De Gallos Y Grita De María Fernanda Ampuero, Y Las Voladoras De Mónica Ojeda, Alejandra Anahi Gaeta

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis focusses on the new Latin-American short story; the ‘obvious and external horror’ vs. the ‘real and internal horror’ found in the works of Maria Fernanda Ampuero: Pelea de gallos (2018) and Grita (2020) as well as in Monica Ojeda’s Las voladoras (2020). The analysis encompasses situations that different protagonists experience in each short story to illustrate the message that the Ecuadorian writers intend to address the reader. Ampuero and Ojeda use their platform to expose the injustice that women and minors endure through their Latin American narratives. In the short stories that belong to the horror and ...


Sum Christiana: Perpetua's Patriarchy-Defeating Agency, Katherine McCarthy 2022 Macalester College

Sum Christiana: Perpetua's Patriarchy-Defeating Agency, Katherine Mccarthy

Religious Studies Honors Projects

The early Christian text, Passio sanctarum Perpetuae et Felicitatis, outlines the martyrdom of Vibia Perpetua and fellow catechumens in North Africa in 203 B.C. By looking at the original Latin text and contextualizing the story in its Carthiginian context and focusing on the words exchanged between Perpetua and her paterfamilias and the descriptions concerning them, this deeper analysis situates Perpetua’s agency. Perpetua inverts the role of the paterfamilias, which can be seen through her language choice. Moreover, Perpetua’s paterfamilias’ change in word choice reflects Perpetua’s ability to make her own choices in the male-dominated Roman society ...


"Je Vous Donne Toute Mon Âme" : Une Traduction De L'Intimité Féminine Dans Isidora De George Sand, Shelby M. Kruger 2022 Macalester College

"Je Vous Donne Toute Mon Âme" : Une Traduction De L'Intimité Féminine Dans Isidora De George Sand, Shelby M. Kruger

French Honors Projects

Malgré la célébrité de l’écrivaine prolifique George Sand, plusieurs de ses œuvres restent non traduites et inaccessibles aux lecteurs anglophones aujourd’hui. Ce projet examine le livre Isidora, écrit par Sand en 1846, et fournit une traduction partielle du texte. Un essai critique accompagne cette traduction qui explore les raisons de l'obscurité de ce texte en comparaison avec d’autres œuvres de Sand, et affirme la pertinence du livre aux lecteurs anglophones du XXIe siècle. Je propose que le cœur de la pertinence et l’excellence d’Isidora réside surtout dans les relations féminines intimes que Sand a ...


From Handmaids To Princesses: How Identity And Politics Impact Definitions Of Biblical Rape, Gabrielle R. Isaac-Herzog 2022 Macalester College

From Handmaids To Princesses: How Identity And Politics Impact Definitions Of Biblical Rape, Gabrielle R. Isaac-Herzog

Classics Honors Projects

The politics of sex in the Bible are complex. They are impacted and limited by the time of the stories, as well as the political landscape and laws of the region. However, since many modern religions have emerged from the text of the Hebrew Bible, it is important for scholars to continue the work of critically examining the texts in the contemporary context. This paper offers a textual analysis of several biblical stories through a feminist and decolonial lens. Through the generation of a taxonomy by which these stories can be categorized, this paper posits that the biblical definitions of ...


An Application Of Skopos Theory To German Literary Translation, Craig Nolan VanDemark 2022 Cedarville University

An Application Of Skopos Theory To German Literary Translation, Craig Nolan Vandemark

Linguistics Senior Research Projects

This project translated the German short story “Ein neues Paradies” by Hans Dominik using skopos theory in order to observe how the theory interacted with the text and to critique its application to literary translation. The skopos theory states that all translation decisions are to be made with respect to the skopos, or purpose, of the target text, intentionally deprioritizing faithfulness to the source text in the translation process. The skopos of the target text of this project was to produce a modern American English translation of the source text, that provides the reader with an understanding of the source ...


Mephistopheles' Atopy, Allotry, Lottery. On Textual Proliferations In Goethe's Faust I And Ii, Pasqual Solass 2022 Brown University

Mephistopheles' Atopy, Allotry, Lottery. On Textual Proliferations In Goethe's Faust I And Ii, Pasqual Solass

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

Combining a careful reading of selected passages from Goethe’s Faust I and II and of marginal but nevertheless revealing lines on maybe the actual protagonist of the “Tragödie”, Mephistopheles, this paper aims to present aspects of what one could call Goethe’s vision of a modern devil. Taking departure from etymological considerations on the root of “diabolus”, i.e. diabállein, meaning to cast apart, to scatter, but also to accuse, as well as from different beliefs of German “Aberglaube” (superstition), it will become clear that one if not the major feature of Goethe’s Mephistopheles-figure is movement, not just ...
