Teaching Spanish Conversation Through The Uaps: A Pedagogy Of Jesuit Values And Mission, Richard D. Reitsma 2022 Canisius College

Teaching Spanish Conversation Through The Uaps: A Pedagogy Of Jesuit Values And Mission, Richard D. Reitsma

Jesuit Higher Education: A Journal

This praxis piece explores the development of a Jesuit focused pedagogy within the context of a Spanish language conversation course. The author begins by defining the origins of the pedagogy employed in this course and how it came to be centered around the Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Society of Jesus (UAPs) which consist of the following goals: 1) Showing the way to God/goodness/hope through discernment; 2) Walking with the excluded, the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice; 3) Journeying with Youth, to accompany young ...


Ephemeral Elsewheres: Locating Narratives Of Resignation, Resistance, And Refusal In The Poetry Of Black Cuban And Black Brazilian Women, Aidan Keys 2022 Dartmouth College

Ephemeral Elsewheres: Locating Narratives Of Resignation, Resistance, And Refusal In The Poetry Of Black Cuban And Black Brazilian Women, Aidan Keys

Comparative Literature M.A. Essays

This essay dissects the language of Latin American revolution and nationalism to locate the body of the black woman and the appropriation of her image. In two seemingly incommensurable radical movements—the Cuban Revolution (1952-1959) and the Brazilian Unified Black Movement (1978-)—the contributions of Black women are unevenly recognized. Reading the poetry of cubanas Nancy Morejón and Georgina Herrera and brasileiras Sônia Fátima and Esmeralda Ribeiro, this essay claims that in both contexts, the Black woman is marginalized to a geographic “elsewhere.” Expanding on this term, coined by scholar Carol Boyce Davies, this essay further identifies temporal and ephemeral ...

¿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 ...


La Cultura Que No Cambia, Karina Arreola-Gutierrez, Karina Arreola-Gutierrez 2022 Washington University in St. Louis

La Cultura Que No Cambia, Karina Arreola-Gutierrez, Karina Arreola-Gutierrez

MFA in Visual Art

In the text of La Cultura Que No Cambia, I mention how my work has been influenced by becoming more aware of generations of altar making that occur in my family. By collecting stories and photographs of altars, I can observe and create work based on how the legacies can change through generations or stay the same. The memory of my ancestors and family traditions is strengthened. Growing up seeing discrimination towards others has influenced me to highlight my Mexican heritage of traditions, culture, and language through several different methods. Using these elements, I can create work informing audiences about ...


España Rarita: Performances Festivas En Tiempos Queer (2008–2020), Daniel Valtueña Martínez 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

España Rarita: Performances Festivas En Tiempos Queer (2008–2020), Daniel Valtueña Martínez

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation studies performing arts practices that reimagine Spanishness after the 2008 financial crisis from a theoretical framework based in queer temporalities. I argue how the recession not only allowed Spanish citizens to claim their rights through the organization of social movements such as the 15M or through cultural objects mimetically representing the crisis through a variety of artistic expressions, but that the 2008 financial crisis also enabled a wide range of creators to reimagine how the Spanish State has been traditionally represented. The contemporary performers I study in my dissertation originally propose new visions of the commons by calling ...


Infrastructures Of Race? Colonial Indigenous Zoning And Contemporaneous Urban Segregation, Luis Baldomero-Quintana, Enrique de la Rosa-Ramos, Guillermo Woo-Mora 2022 William & Mary

Infrastructures Of Race? Colonial Indigenous Zoning And Contemporaneous Urban Segregation, Luis Baldomero-Quintana, Enrique De La Rosa-Ramos, Guillermo Woo-Mora

Arts & Sciences Articles

We study the persistent and adverse effects of colonial ethno-racial segregation on modern urban sorting patterns. After the conquest of Mesoamerica, Spaniards segregated natives into settlements called Pueblos de Indios. By the end of colonial times, there were two types of settlements: Pueblos with Indigenous inhabitants only and Pueblos with populations of diverse ancestry. We estimate the causal impacts of Pueblos and the degree of success in the segregation policy on modern outcomes within cities. We combine a research design that purges unobserved spatial heterogeneity with a novel instrumental variable to deal with endogeneity. We show that urban areas closer ...
