World Languages and Cultures Senior Capstones

This essay explores the history and development of the Romantic movement within Spain. Considering the historical context of the 18th century, topics such as the influences of the monarchy and the Catholic Church, the authors Mariano José de Larra and José Zorrilla and the literary works produced in this era are investigated. The presentation reveals unique aspects of romanticism within Spain. Additionally, it investigates how these themes were reflected in popular culture values. Finally, it examines the perception of a Spanish national identity, as well as the relationship between Spain and the rest of Europe.


"And Then There Were None:" The Silencing And Censorship Of Translated Works Under Francisco Franco, Avery Austin 2024 Chapman University

"And Then There Were None:" The Silencing And Censorship Of Translated Works Under Francisco Franco, Avery Austin

Student Scholar Symposium Abstracts and Posters

We tend to live under the assumption that translations will always attempt to be faithful to their original texts, blindly believing in the infallibility of the translator. However, in doing so, we ignore how translation can be used to take advantage of the reader – how can one know that a change has occurred in a translated work if they have no knowledge of the text’s original language? This paper studies the power dynamics of translation, and how it can be used as a tool to aid censorship. By focusing on translated literary works under the Franco regime, this work …

El Público De Federico García Lorca A La Luz De María Zambrano, Giovanny Salas Torres 2024 University of Massachusetts, Amherst

El Público De Federico García Lorca A La Luz De María Zambrano, Giovanny Salas Torres

Teatro: Revista de Estudios Escénicos / A Journal of Theater Studies

RESUMEN

La cercanía intelectual, artística y biográfica entre Federico García Lorca y María Zambrano ya ha sido señalada por algunos investigadores —entre ellos, Virginia Trueba Mira y Goretti Ramírez— y sin embargo, no es una especialidad de los estudios lorquianos. Esta proximidad se suele estudiar sobre la base de la antología de Lorca que Zambrano editó y prologó durante su exilio en Chile, luego de la muerte del poeta, y al explorar la faceta de Zambrano como crítica literaria. Pero, más allá de eso, la hipótesis de este estudio consiste en que el teatro de García Lorca —y especialmente …


Pedro Mexía And The Politics Of Translation In The Early Modern World, Erin Fairweather, Robert Fritz 2024 Murray State University

Pedro Mexía And The Politics Of Translation In The Early Modern World, Erin Fairweather, Robert Fritz

Posters-at-the-Capitol

Spanish humanist Pedro Mexía (1497-1551) wrote two highly influential texts in the sixteenth century, the Silva de varia lección (1540) and the Historia imperial y cesárea (1545), which were, notably, written in Spanish, a vernacular language, as opposed to Latin, the academic language of the age. As these books presented previously inaccessible scientific and historical knowledge to the common person, they were soon translated into several languages, achieving widespread fame and influence. However, the texts have been mostly forgotten and have seen little study in recent times. Nevertheless, the Silva and the Historia can help us better understand the politics …


Learning Chinese Vocabulary: Understanding Students' Perspectives, Austin Gasiecki, Zuotang Zhang 2024 Georgia Southern University

Learning Chinese Vocabulary: Understanding Students' Perspectives, Austin Gasiecki, Zuotang Zhang

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This study used a survey to investigate self-study and university-enrolled Chinese learners’ habits in studying Chinese vocabulary in order to determine what study methods influence a.) learners’ confidence in learning Chinese vocabulary and b.) what aspects of Chinese vocabulary they consider easy or difficult. We were particularly interested in seeing what the data had to say about students’ attitudes towards characters and the written language, given that the field of Chinese language pedagogy is known for a stronger focus on the written language as opposed to the spoken language. We found that aspects of Chinese vocabulary associated with the spoken …


Horror Stories: Oblivious Women In Luis Puenzo’S La Historia Oficial (1985) And Santiago Mitre’S Argentina 1985 (2022), Stephanie R. Orozco 2024 University of South Carolina Aiken

Horror Stories: Oblivious Women In Luis Puenzo’S La Historia Oficial (1985) And Santiago Mitre’S Argentina 1985 (2022), Stephanie R. Orozco

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Adriana Cavarero's conceptualization of Medusa serves as a potent metaphor for the subtle redirection of violence of oblivious women who ignored the brutalization of pregnant victims during Argentina’s military dictatorship (1976-83). In Luis Puenzo’s La historia oficial (1985) and Santiago Mitre’s Argentina 1985 (2022), skillfully unveil the ghastly practice of torturing pregnant women, unraveling the vulnerability of both mothers and their infants, evoking a sense of disgust and repugnance that is eventually shared by oblivious women. Beyond mere storytelling, these films challenge prevailing power dynamics and discourses, shedding light on the complicit ignorance of elite women during an era marked …

Collective, Collage, And Translative Authorship: Writing To And From Multilingual Europe, Jamie H. Trnka 2024 Xavier University

Collective, Collage, And Translative Authorship: Writing To And From Multilingual Europe, Jamie H. Trnka

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Letters to Europe (2011) is a collectively authored, transnational literary engagement with Europe as an idea, a place, and a set of socio-political relationships. A print publication and performance, the ambivalent generic status of the Brussels-based project raises productive questions about how collective translation, transnational authorship, and multimedial performance strategies combine to advance new modes of aesthetic and political representation for subjects in transit in twenty-first century Europe. I argue for attention to multilingual and multimedial translations as sites of creative self-documentation on the part of mobile subjects as a critical counterpoint to state-sanctioned forms of documentality (Favorini). To that …

Between Pain And Glory: Memory Disputes Of The Brazilian Dictatorship In Retrato Calado And O Que É Isso, Companheiro?, Angela R. Mooney 2024 Texas Woman's University

Between Pain And Glory: Memory Disputes Of The Brazilian Dictatorship In Retrato Calado And O Que É Isso, Companheiro?, Angela R. Mooney

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This article analyzes Luiz Roberto Salinas Fortes’ Retrato calado (Silent Portrait) published in 1988, considering the theoretical discussions on testimonio's epistemology—addressing the challenge of narrating trauma and the risk of stylization. It compares Fortes' memoir with Fernando Gabeira's O que é isso, companheiro? (What's This, Comrade?) from 1979, examining diverse approaches to capturing historical trauma through literature and its impact on collective memory about Brazilian Dictatorship (1964-1985).


Unha Vez Tiven Un Cravo (Once I Had A Nail), Roslie de Castro, Scott Cooper 2024 College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University

Unha Vez Tiven Un Cravo (Once I Had A Nail), Roslie De Castro, Scott Cooper

Obsculta

Rosalia de Castro was a nineteenth-century Spanish Catholic writer now best-known for her novels, but her poetry is widely admired in the Spanish-speaking world as well. This devotional poem is written in the language of her native region of Galicia, and the translator hopes that this new version will awaken interest in Castro's work in the English-speaking world.


Todos Las Naciones, Tribus, Pueblos Y Lenguas: The Growing Need Of Hispanic Protestant Churches In The United States, Paula Harvie 2024 Gardner-Webb University

Todos Las Naciones, Tribus, Pueblos Y Lenguas: The Growing Need Of Hispanic Protestant Churches In The United States, Paula Harvie

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This thesis covers the growing movement of Protestantism amongst Hispanics in the United States. Although significant growth in this movement has occurred in the 21st century, the roots of this movement come from the early 20th century and started in Latin America. Today, more and more Hispanics are converting from Catholicism to Protestantism. Furthermore, more Hispanics are immigrating to the United States and may struggle to find a sense of belonging in their new home due to language and cultural barriers. This is where Hispanic churches rise to the occasion as they provide a place in which Hispanics …

Interminables Encrucijadas: El Dilema Ético En Tomás Nevinson, Isabel Cuñado 2023 Bucknell University

Interminables Encrucijadas: El Dilema Ético En Tomás Nevinson, Isabel Cuñado

Faculty Journal Articles

La muerte de Javier Marías en 2022 ha convertido de manera fortuita Tomás Nevinson (2021) en el colofón de una extraordinaria trayectoria literaria que cumplía cincuenta años con esta novela. Es posible apreciar en ella la culminación de los grandes ejes de pensamiento que se han venido desarrollando a lo largo de décadas en esta obra, más característica por dejar preguntas abiertas que por proponer respuestas. Las preocupaciones epistemológicas en torno a la crisis referencial del lenguaje emergen de nuevo aquí y entroncan con la segunda cuestión clave de esta narrativa: la ética. En este artículo propongo que el dilema …


Decades Of Don Quixote: Tracking Social Progression Through Marcela And Grisóstomo, Allison Jackson 2023 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Decades Of Don Quixote: Tracking Social Progression Through Marcela And Grisóstomo, Allison Jackson

Honors Theses

In this essay, I will track the evolution of academic opinions in the late 20th and early 21st century of two main components of the episode: Marcela’s character and what it says about Cervantes’ perception of women’s autonomy, as well as Grisóstomo’s death and the rejection of the notion of suicide by past academics. Marcela’s dramatic rejection of societal demands and Gristósomo’s tragic and confusing death are radically exciting since there is so much left to be assumed about the two main characters that is not explicitly written. The story relies on irony and subversion to enunciate a certain message; …
