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 ...


“El Inglés Y El Spánich”: Translating The Heterolingualism Of La Frontera–A Critical Translation Of Luis Humberto Crosthwaite’S Estrella De La Calle Sexta, Nora E. Carr 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

“El Inglés Y El Spánich”: Translating The Heterolingualism Of La Frontera–A Critical Translation Of Luis Humberto Crosthwaite’S Estrella De La Calle Sexta, Nora E. Carr

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation offers an original translation and critical analysis of Crosthwaite’s Estrella de la calle sexta. In so doing it engages with recent work on contemporary Latin American literature, translation theory, and border theory, while also offering a version of Crosthwaite’s text—itself a seminal work in studies of the Tijuanan imaginary—that will be accessible to anglophone readers. The critical chapters, too, will allow scholars of the border to revisit the stories of Estrella through the lenses of language, translation, and heterolingualism. Chapter One offers a reevaluation of the mode of translation theory that posits translation as ...

Domesticación Y Extranjerización En La Traducción Literaria De Uproot, A Memoir De Josefina Beatriz Longoria, Dania Saucedo

Theses and Dissertations

ABSTRACT

Domesticación y extranjerización en la traducción literaria de Uproot, a Memoir de Josefina Beatriz Longoria (May 2022)

Dania Denin Saucedo, B.A., Texas A&M International University;

Chair of Committee: Dr. Lola Orellano Norris

Throughout history, translation and interpreting have been key in facilitating communication among peoples and in advancing our knowledge and understanding of literature, religion, and the law, among others. Literature is a passport to exotic lands and different moments in time. Without literary translation, our imagination would not be able to wander off to these distant lands, the readers would not be exposed to other cultures nor learn from ...


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 ...

A Survey To Highlight Areas Of Focus For Patient Care In Settings Utilizing Medical Interpretation, Azayzel DeRegis 2022 East Tennessee State University

A Survey To Highlight Areas Of Focus For Patient Care In Settings Utilizing Medical Interpretation, Azayzel Deregis

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis recounts my personal experience working as a volunteer medical interpreter for the Language and Culture Resource Center at East Tennessee State University. The result of my time spent volunteering as a medical interpreter, shadowing professional medical interpreters, and witnessing patient-provider interactions during interpreted sessions was an inspiration to study medical interpretation further and delve into the challenges faced by patients who require medical interpreters. During my time researching this topic, I found that the United States is severely lacking in Spanish medical interpreters—with some healthcare facilities employing no medical interpreters—even though the size of the Hispanic ...

Criadero, Marilyn Noray a Ccoyure 2022 The University of Texas at El Paso

Criadero, Marilyn Noray A Ccoyure

Open Access Theses & Dissertations

Se denomina comúnmente Criadero al lugar destinado a la crianza de animales, y esta referencia me ayudó a configurar un espacio en cual establecí mi imaginario del hogar gracias al recurso poético de la animalización. Mis padres Marcelina Talaverano y Esteban Ccoyure, mis hermanos y yo somos “pájaros” en este universo, nacidos y criados bajos los aleros de la violencia, la migración y los obstáculos propios del asentamiento en la capital. De modo que Criadero es un motivo para escarbar en mi historia familiar y en la trasmisión del primer dolor. Criadero también es un tratado de la crianza de ...


Articulación Y Desarticulación Opresora En Dos Novelas: Una Lectura Abigarrada De La Genara De Rosina Conde Y La Giganta De Patricia Laurent Kullick, Angélica Rey Acevedo 2022 The University of Texas at El Paso

Articulación Y Desarticulación Opresora En Dos Novelas: Una Lectura Abigarrada De La Genara De Rosina Conde Y La Giganta De Patricia Laurent Kullick, Angélica Rey Acevedo

Open Access Theses & Dissertations

La presente investigación tiene por objetivo interpretar a las novelas La Genara de Rosina Conde y La giganta de Patricia Laurent Kullick como relatos explicativos donde tienen lugar una praxis de intelectualidad orgánica, de quehacer anti-hegemónico; feminista, de quehacer anti-opresor; y ch’ixi, de quehacer anti-colonizador. Busco una lectura crítica para identificar claves del posicionamiento de ambas novelas respecto a discursos hegemónicos que producen relaciones sociales de opresión.


Looking At Latino Communities: Legal Cynicism, Acculturation, And Their Willingness To Cooperate With Police, Shayla Salais 2022 The University of Texas at El Paso

Looking At Latino Communities: Legal Cynicism, Acculturation, And Their Willingness To Cooperate With Police, Shayla Salais

Open Access Theses & Dissertations

Numerous studies have examined how acculturation affects Latino neighborhoods and how legal cynicism affects Latino neighborhoods. Acculturation has been linked with low crime levels, meanwhile legal cynicism is attributed to high crime levels. This study aims to address this contradiction in the literature. Based on 1059 surveys, 46 neighborhood clusters were used to examine how legal cynicism and acculturation to Mexico impact a neighborhoods willingness to cooperate with police. A multivariate ordinary least squares (OLS) regression found that acculturation to Mexico results in higher levels of legal cynicism and less willingness to cooperate with police. The OLS regression also found ...

Cuerpos Clandestinos E Indocumentados: Narrativas Transfronterizas Centroamericanas En La Literatura Y El Cine, Sara D. Rico Godoy

Doctoral Dissertations

The reality of migration is a phenomenon that has been present in the world for centuries. Latin America is mainly where immigrants in the United States reach high scales. However, Central America explicitly sees a shift in the ways people decide to migrate nowadays, for instance, in caravans with thousands of walkers. This dissertation analyzes six Central American contemporary works in narrative and four film productions: two film features and two documentaries. The purpose is to explore the significance of mobilities and their influence on perspectives of identity and the different narratives of migration and how these are portrayed in ...


Voicing Narrative Through Transatlanticism And Transformation In Historia De La Monja Alférez By Catalina De Erauso, Morgan Schneider 2022 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Voicing Narrative Through Transatlanticism And Transformation In Historia De La Monja Alférez By Catalina De Erauso, Morgan Schneider

Masters Theses

This thesis analyzes various aspects of Catalina de Erauso’s Historia de la Monja Alférez, escrita por ella misma (1829). The first chapter explores notions of interior and exterior as categories that determine not only the protagonist’s movement in space but also their expression of self-identity over the course of the text, focalized through first-person narration. Additionally, the chapter brings to light how the interior narrative parallels Erauso’s desire to share their transformation from nun in a Spanish convent to a soldier in the Americas with picaresque tendencies. Erauso leverages the power of exterior appearances through the self-fashioning ...

Misticismo Y Arcadismo En El Villancico Novohispano. Manuel De Sumaya Y Sus Contemporáneos, Luciana Kube Tamayo

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

El siglo XVIII trajo consigo una evolución estilística vertiginosa en todas las artes. La plástica, la literatura y la música confluyen y sirven de soporte a un arte nuevo, el Rococó. La floración churrigueresca está intensamente presente, además de en lienzos y biombos, en el vocabulario de la lírica de la Nueva España; a la vez que se afianzan los modelos religiosos, por un lado, se asientan los modelos pastoriles por otro. En cuanto a la espiritualidad, los modelos se encuentran encajados en la miniatura poética y el ingenio dieciochesco, desbordante de naturaleza y fantasía. En el presente trabajo me ...


Desde Hernández Hasta Haraway: Gaucho Y Caballo Como Companion Species, Elisabetta Rodio 2022 University of Colorado, Boulder

Desde Hernández Hasta Haraway: Gaucho Y Caballo Como Companion Species, Elisabetta Rodio

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

La siguiente investigación pretende cuestionar el análisis tradicional de la figura del gaucho, desde siempre considerado como un “tipo humano”, para apoyar la idea de que este personaje es una entidad constituida por las intra-acciones entre su esencia humana, y lo no-humano: el caballo, su fiel compañero. Tomando como bases de análisis el Martín Fierro de José Hernández y El Payador de Leopoldo Lugones, el trabajo se enfoca en las relaciones extra-humanas que el hombre-gaucho desarrolla en el entorno de la Pampa, para demostrar que la identidad gauchesca es, finalmente, una esencia posthumana. Más específicamente, el enfoque será puesto en ...


Identidad Y Progreso En El Caribe: La Ambigüedad Identitaria De Venezuela Y Puerto Rico, Gerardo Ruz 2022 University of Alabama

Identidad Y Progreso En El Caribe: La Ambigüedad Identitaria De Venezuela Y Puerto Rico, Gerardo Ruz

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

La presencia estadounidense, en naciones caribeñas como Puerto Rico y Venezuela, ha jugado un papel fundamental en el desarrollo de los pueblos del mar desde el siglo XIX. En la mayoría de los casos, esta presencia por parte de las políticas estadounidenses ha creado problemas con la formación de una identidad cultural. La realidad de Puerto Rico es diferente, debido a que esta nación aún no ha alcanzado su independencia y la presencia norteamericana ha influido de manera determinante en la cultura de este pueblo caribeño. José Luis González, en su ensayo El país de cuatro pisos (1980), expone la ...
