Literatures and Cultural Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

El presente artículo propone un análisis de los cuentos de Largo noviembre de Madrid, además de otros relatos de La trilogía de la guerra civil de Juan Eduardo Zúñiga desde un planteamiento multidisciplinar basado en el concepto de la mirada. Partiendo de un marco teórico lacaniano, y con la evidencia de la construcción lectora que requiere el estilo elíptico y elusivo del autor, se ofrece un abordaje en clave escópica que incide en la diferencia entre “ver” y “mirar” como elementos que articulan las relaciones psicológicas entre personajes, y como técnica que redunda en la inmersión lectora. En los cuentos ...

Apocalipsis Cultural E Imaginación Política: El Caso De Madrid En El Periodo Entre Crisis (2008–2020), Natalia Castro Picón 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Apocalipsis Cultural E Imaginación Política: El Caso De Madrid En El Periodo Entre Crisis (2008–2020), Natalia Castro Picón

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation studies the current Spanish economic, political, and social crisis and its representations through apocalyptic imaginaries. I seek to establish a fundamental political and cultural distinction between two models of these imaginaries traceable in representations of Madrid. On one hand, it looks at cultural discourses that display catastrophist projections of the present and the future, insisting on alarmistic and deterministic messages. On the other hand, it looks at other discourses that subvert this representation of the capitalist crisis as the end of the world, shifting the symbolic value of the apocalyptic imaginaries towards figurations of the end of capitalism ...


El Peligro De Contar Historias: Un Análisis De ​Tu Rostro Mañana​, De Javier Marías, Madison Morgan 2020 James Madison University

El Peligro De Contar Historias: Un Análisis De ​Tu Rostro Mañana​, De Javier Marías, Madison Morgan

Senior Honors Projects, 2020-current

Tu rostro mañana ( 2002-2007), una novela en tres partes de Javier Marías (Madrid, 1951), mira el mundo a través de los ojos cautelosos del protagonista Jacques Deza, un agente de observación, encubierto, que trabaja bajo una presión insuperable para mantener el silencio mientras escribe la historia y las consecuencias de no hacerlo. La extensión de la novela sola es un apunte irónico a la incapacidad humana de mantener el silencio que uno pretende establecer. Con más de mil páginas, divididas entre los tres libros, Marías utiliza su técnica de escritura de flujo de conciencia para comprometerse con el lector en ...


Literatura Viva: Formas De Conocer La Literatura Y Agricultura Desde Chiapas, Jesse Nichols 2020 Portland State University

Literatura Viva: Formas De Conocer La Literatura Y Agricultura Desde Chiapas, Jesse Nichols

Dissertations and Theses

Literatura Viva reflects the links between agriculture and literature in Chiapas, Mexico, demonstrating how the ways of knowing the environment which are culturally expressed through literature and the practices of sustainable agriculture are deeply linked. It argues that the experience of the agricultural working class is central not just to a physical movement towards tangible agricultural change but to a society's ability to understand its socio-cultural and natural environment. The thesis first explores indigenous literature, then agricultural practices and finally educational movements which seek to express pluriversal understandings and ways of interacting with the planet. It argues that these ...

Cinema "Turns": Catalan Creative Documentary, Celia Sainz Delgado 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Cinema "Turns": Catalan Creative Documentary, Celia Sainz Delgado

Masters Theses

This thesis focuses on four women-directed films as a way to illustrate some characteristics shared by the new Catalan creative documentary: El cielo gira ( The Sky Turns, dir. Mercedes Álvarez, 2004), Nedar (Swim, dir. Carla Subirana, 2008), La plaga (The Plague, dir. Neus Ballús, 2013), and Penèlope (Penelope, dir. Eva Vila, 2018). My aim is to highlight their alternative cinematographic strategies, which stray from the hegemonic discourses of documentary filmmaking. In so doing, I analyze these films from three different angles: the relationship between the filmmaker and the material world; the alternative modalities of time; and the haptic connection between ...


Borderless Flows In Federspiel’S Die Ballade Von Der Typhoid Mary, Charlotte Melin 2020 University of Minnesota - Twin Cities

Borderless Flows In Federspiel’S Die Ballade Von Der Typhoid Mary, Charlotte Melin

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Jürg Federspiel’s novel Die Ballade von der Typhoid Mary (1982) offers a fictionalized account of the notorious heroine’s life that ultimately sympathizes with her plight as an immigrant who faced exclusionary cultural barriers. Drawing on Rob Nixon’s concept of “slow violence” and recent approaches developed by material ecocriticism theory, my essay reinterprets this work from an environmental humanities perspective. The interpretation focuses on the interconnection of discourses related to disease, food, and pollution flows. Exploration of these themes leads to the conclusion that Federspiel’s work was prescient in its parallel engagement with both immigration issues and ...


Poetry For Seers Or The Peruvian Visual Poetic Tradition In Front Of New Media, Michael Hurtado, Pamela Medina, Enrique García, Michael Prado 2020 Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru

Poetry For Seers Or The Peruvian Visual Poetic Tradition In Front Of New Media, Michael Hurtado, Pamela Medina, Enrique García, Michael Prado

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

Since the first decades of the twentieth century, Peruvian poetic tradition has been characterized by experimental uses of language. Among these possibilities, some records tensioned this medium from the link with the plastic arts, as in the case of the poetry of José María Eguren, while others opted for the playing with the spatiality and visuality of the blank sheet, such as in the case of the work of Carlos Oquendo de Amat. However, it is not until the appearance of the poetry of César Vallejo, specifically with a poems like Trilce in 1922, that these breakages force us to ...

Through comprehensive close reading, it examines three novels (Clavícula by Marta Sanz, Ordesaby Manuel Vilas and El amor del revés by Luisgé Martín) and three films (Mapa by Elías León Siminiani, True Love by Ion de Sosa, both representative of the Other Spanish Cinema, and Dolor y gloria by Pedro Almodóvar) in order to identify the “inclinations of the I” carried out ...

Contrapunteo de la literatura de la isla y la diáspora dominicanas (1965-2018)

Jose Luis Peralta Genao

Advisor: Carlos Riobó

The literary works written by Dominican Diaspora as well as the ones written in the island have been dealing with a very complicated phenomena grown as the result of Dominican massive emigration of twenty century, namely the definition of dominicaness (dominicanidad). In the search of a broader notion of this concept the idea of being Dominican gets build and transforms in different Dominican literary spaces. By searching national discursive elements that construct that Dominican identities in ...

La Obra Dramatica De Lope De Vega: Temas Y Motivos Neoestoicos, Rosa M. Herrera-Rodriguez

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Neostoicism had a strong influence in Europe during the seventeenth century. This influence was reflected in philosophy, politics, art and literature. In this dissertation we first discuss the importance of stoicism and neostoicism in Europe and in Spain. Then we analyze the neostoic elements found in two plays of Lope de Vega: Barlaan and Josafat (1611) and El caballero de Olmedo (1620).
