Using A Smart Phone To Learn Spanish: Does It Work And Will Students Use It?, Andrew J. Demil, Alysha Assaf, Ryan Cragun

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Over time, mobile devices have penetrated the classroom, requiring new and beneficial ways to implement classroom instruction. Research suggests that Short Message Service (SMS) based instruction is an effective tool for acquiring second language (L2) vocabulary and idiom knowledge (Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu,). Additionally, studies have found that students believe that mobile learning (m-learning) is beneficial to acquiring a second language (Cavus & Ibrahim; Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu, 2008). This study examined whether m-learning can lead to Spanish vocabulary familiarity and if sentence comprehension outperforms reading definitions. Participants were 29 native English speakers studying Spanish as a second language at the intermediate level. Learners ...


Ficción Y Cientificismo: Opendoor Y Paraísos De Iosi Havilio Y La Comemadre De Roque Larraquy” [Fiction And Scientism: Iosi Havilio’S Opendoor And Paraísos And Roque Larraquy’S La Comemadre], Martín L. Gaspar 2021 Bryn Mawr College

Ficción Y Cientificismo: Opendoor Y Paraísos De Iosi Havilio Y La Comemadre De Roque Larraquy” [Fiction And Scientism: Iosi Havilio’S Opendoor And Paraísos And Roque Larraquy’S La Comemadre], Martín L. Gaspar

Spanish Faculty Research and Scholarship

La presencia del cientificismo positivista de fines del siglo XIX es legible en novelas de Roque Larraquy (en particular, La comemadre, 2010) y Iosi Havilio (Opendoor, 2006 y Paraísos, 2011) ambientadas en parte o en su totalidad en el siglo XXI. Argumento que Larraquy encuentra en instituciones y archivos finiseculares un tono narrativo y un tipo de personaje y Havilio una motivación para una protagonista en general exenta de pasiones. Para ambos novelistas, el uso del archivo está más emparentado con el aprovechamiento narrativo que –por ejemplo, en las novelas del boom– con la búsqueda de saberes revelatorios y centros ...


Ganar Local: La Política Cantera Del Athletic Club Y La Construcción De Lo Vasco, Sam Orenstein 2021 Colby College

Ganar Local: La Política Cantera Del Athletic Club Y La Construcción De Lo Vasco, Sam Orenstein

Honors Theses

El Athletic Club de Bilbao es un club único en el fútbol español debido a su política cantera. Esta política declara que para jugar por el Athletic Club, hay que ser vasco. Este concepto, que cuestiona quién es vasco, cómo se expresa, y cómo contamos la identidad nacional, es un pilar central de esta tesis. Esta tesis analiza la cantera en su habilidad de definir qué es ser vasco, lo cual tiene implicaciones más anchas para el fútbol y nacionalismo en España. Sugiero que la cantera es un agente ...

Cultural Resistance And Textual Emotionality In The Sahrawi Poetic Anthology Versahara, Alberto López Martín 2020 Valparaiso University

Cultural Resistance And Textual Emotionality In The Sahrawi Poetic Anthology Versahara, Alberto López Martín

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

A group of Hispanophone Sahrawi poets founded their own Generación de la Amistad ‘Friendship Generation’ in Madrid in 2005. Ever since, Sahrawi poetry in Spanish has found in the anthology an ideal format to present itself to the Spanish reader, counting more than a dozen publications of poetry collections. Such profusion has nothing to do with the struggle for the cultural hegemony characteristic of other currents within the Spanish poetic field. By contrast, these collections keep to the anthologists’ double logic of cultural preservation and literary activism, which emphasize the communitarian character of their poetry. In this paper, I examine ...


Exhuming Labor: Alienation And Rural Affiliation In Spanish Migrant Poetry, Carlos Varón González 2020 UC Riverside

Exhuming Labor: Alienation And Rural Affiliation In Spanish Migrant Poetry, Carlos Varón González

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

One of the consequences of the 2008 financial crisis was that many young college graduates from the Spanish state left the country, faced with unemployment rates over 40% at home. Whereas Spanish economic growth before the crisis had pushed the narrative that a young generation was predisposed to transnational circulation, the experience of migration challenged the identification of large transnational cities as sites of emancipatory modernization. Fruela Instead, Fruela Fernández’s Una paz europea (A European Peace) and Lara Dopazo Ruibal’s ovella (sheep) point to them as the background to vulnerable, animalized, racialized, alienated bodies. The transnational city is ...


Dissident Poetry In Post-Crisis Spain: A Challenge To Fluidity, Olga Bezhanova 2020 Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville

Dissident Poetry In Post-Crisis Spain: A Challenge To Fluidity, Olga Bezhanova

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The global economic crisis of 2008-9 had an especially severe impact on Spain and resulted in the publication of many works of literature that address the effects and the causes of the crisis. Daniel Macías Díaz and Antonio Rómar, two contemporary Spanish poets, belong to different artistic generations, yet their response to the devastation caused by the economic collapse centers on a rejection of the neoliberal worldview that inspired the creation of the current economic system. The poets question the rhetoric of fluidity and mobility that accompanies the implantation of the neoliberal world order and call for the creation of ...

La Peste Y El Distanciamiento En "El Ganso De Oro" De Lope De Vega, Christopher C. Oechler 2020 Gettysburg College

La Peste Y El Distanciamiento En "El Ganso De Oro" De Lope De Vega, Christopher C. Oechler

Spanish Faculty Publications

Despite presenting a widespread threat during the Golden Age, the plague was rarely dramatized in comedias. Lope de Vega’s El ganso de oro serves as a notable exception to this general trend. With its blending of genres, from the pastoral to the palatial with a strong dose of magic, the play provides insight into life during such a time of pestilence. The current COVID-19 health crisis suggests a new reading of the work, which has previously suffered from a lack of critical attention. This article reviews the key role of the plague in El ganso de oro to highlight ...

La Ficción Revelada. La Poética De La Autoficción En La Literatura Mexicana Contemporánea, Alba Devo Colis 2020 The University Western Ontario

La Ficción Revelada. La Poética De La Autoficción En La Literatura Mexicana Contemporánea, Alba Devo Colis

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Esta disertación investiga el estatuto genérico de la autoficción, el cual se ha entendido como un género híbrido entre autobiografía y novela o como un producto derivado de la autobiografía posmoderna. Mientras que teóricamente se ha defendido la ambigüedad genérica a partir de la identidad nominal y los elementos autobiográficos compartidos entre autor, narrador y protagonista, el presente trabajo sigue la perspectiva que sitúa a la autoficción como un género ficcional y no como un género híbrido. Por ello, se busca identificar las estrategias utilizadas por los autores para erigir la obra como una ficción que no depende de gradientes ...


The Forest, The Trees, The Bark, The Pith: An Intensive Look At The Circulation Rates Of Primary Texts In Ten Major Literature Areas At The University Of Oregon Libraries, Jeff D. Staiger 2020 University of Oregon

The Forest, The Trees, The Bark, The Pith: An Intensive Look At The Circulation Rates Of Primary Texts In Ten Major Literature Areas At The University Of Oregon Libraries, Jeff D. Staiger

Charleston Library Conference

This poster looks at the circulation rate for literary primary texts, which constitute a unique area of collecting in academic libraries: while they do not in most cases meet immediate research needs, it is assumed that libraries ought to acquire them, for reasons including future research needs, preservation of the cultural record, and the ability of members of the intellectual community to stay current, those these remain primarily tacit. The circulation trends of contemporary literary works in ten areas of literature (English, American, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin American, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian) over the past twenty years at the ...


The Validity Of Online Learning And Teaching Of A Spanish Using An Online Delivery Mode, Rosalind Arthur 2020 Clark Atlanta University

The Validity Of Online Learning And Teaching Of A Spanish Using An Online Delivery Mode, Rosalind Arthur

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

Incorporating Online learning as an optional delivery mode of instruction in tertiary institutions with traditional campuses has been the trend in recent years. The question is whether it should be offered universally or with some discrimination. The presenter teaches Spanish at an HBCU which has been offering some general education courses online during the summer.

Needless to say, while online programs are lucrative, it behooves the instructors and institutions to ascertain the viability of the product in terms of the learning needs of the target population. Must enrollment into these courses be open to all or be vetted in order ...


El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València 2020 University of Colorado Boulder

El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

El abrazo de la serpiente es una de las obras cumbre del cine latino americano que más reconocimiento internacional ha obtenido, pero ¿por qué el filme de Ciro Guerra fascinó a un público tan amplio y diverso, obteniendo premios en lugares tan alejados y dispares como Montreal o Yereván, por nombrar alguno? Esta presentación realiza un análisis en profundidad de la puesta en escena en El abrazo para explicar el lenguaje audiovisual con el que el filme de Ciro Guerra construye una narrativa cinematográfica alejada de las formas dominantes, pero habilitada para emocionar a audiencias de todo el mundo. Tomando ...

El Asadito Y El Cumple: Personajes Y Espacio Como Formas De Significado, Mariana Pensa

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

El asadito y El cumple: personajes y espacio como formas de significado

En este ensayo se realiza una aproximación a los filmes El asadito (2000) y El cumple (2002) ambos dirigidos por el cineasta argentino Gustavo Postiglioni. Nos detendremos especialmente en la función connotadora del espacio y los personajes en los dos filmes, que remite tanto a una atmósfera espacial sofocante como a personajes alienados, anclados en una innacción existencial.

Observaremos cómo se va construyendo la tensión, expresando así la radiografía de un grupo de personajes que tienen una memoria común, y que se constituyen en síntomas y a la ...
