Geographies of transit: representations of the Dominican body in contemporary film and literature by Kristina Medina Vilariño( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the literary and cinematic constructions of Dominican bodies in the context of different geographical locations: the Dominican Republic, the United States, Puerto Rico, and Haiti. I argue that the artistic representations of these bodies are marked by issues of race, gender, and migration in which the Dominican body is always perceived in transit from one locality to another. The dissertation also looks at how colonial history and present-day economic structures affect the manner in which the main characters viewed their own bodies in relationship to others within very specific national spaces
Corporeal rhetoric and social order in the viceroyalty of New Spain: from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment by Yolopattli Hernandez-Torres( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the use of corporeal rhetoric in textual and visual representations of the colonial subject in New Spain. By corporeal rhetoric, I refer to the multiple ways in which the body is represented discursively to persuade readers in accordance with their personal agendas. In this dissertation, the body is understood as the material body, but additionally considered in its symbolical nature when it is related to systems of power and control. By focusing on the manner in which the body is utilized as a rhetorical device to depict New Spain⁰́₉s political, cultural, and religious reality, I will demonstrate how the representation of the colonial subject through the body is intrinsically embedded in the construction of New Spain⁰́₉s social order. This project encompasses a timeframe that ranges from 1579 to 1803, situating each work in relation to its historical, literary, and cultural tradition. The early writings are analyzed in light of the period traditionally denominated as ⁰́conquest⁰́₊, in which corporeal rhetoric was employed by Spanish religious authorities to evangelize the Amerindian groups. In the early colonial period, the concept of social order was defined by the interaction of elements such as the enforcement of Catholicism carried out by the missionary men, as well as the Amerindian population⁰́₉s adherence to these rules. The analysis of these texts suggests that the body of the missionary man embodies the Euro-Christian tradition. The tools they used in this process, written and visual, coexisted among the Amerindian cultures and sometimes clashed with their ancient traditions, especially the way in which the body is conceived by both cultures. The first chapter is devoted to the study of religious conversion of the Amerindian population and the manner in which the indigenous body works within that process in the illustrated book ⁰́Retórica cristiana⁰́₊ written by Diego de Valadés (1579). The second chapter analyzes the religious life of Sebastián de Aparicio, a Spanish man living in colonial Mexico who was the protagonist in the text ⁰́₋Vida y milagros del glorioso confessor de Cristo, Sebastián de Aparicio⁰́₊ (1629) by Bartolomé Sánchez Parejo. In this text, Aparicio⁰́₉s body incarnates the characteristics of sainthood for the local community. In the written works of the late colonial period, corporeal rhetoric is associated with the body politic. These texts deeply rooted in the tenets of the Enlightenment correlate the physical and psychological health of the individual with the health of the body politic. My contention is that in the Mexican texts of the late colonial period, the concept of social order can only thrive through the attempt to categorize and objectify those colonial bodies that are in need of social control. Nevertheless, the diverse shape of the colonial population and the vast geographic areas that they inhabited make this political effort very challenging. Chapter 3 focuses on two legal documents: ⁰́₋Relación de la causa de Juana María, mulata. Esclava, mulata y hechicera⁰́₊ (1750), which describes the legal process of Juana María, a woman accused of practicing witchcraft. And also the legal process ⁰́₋María Rita Vargas y María Lucía Celis. Beatas Embaucadoras de la colonia⁰́₊ (1803). This chapter examines the dangerous connotations that civil authorities attributed to certain women of the late colonial period based on her religious practices, her sexual gender, and her racial background. Lastly, chapter 4 studies the political treatise ⁰́₋Enfermedades políticas que padece la capital de esta Nueva España⁰́₊ (1787), which demonstrates the interrelation between the body politic and the social order. Villarroel⁰́₉s work evidences the relations between the health of an individual, the health of the entire population, and the measures of hygiene. His critique shows his interest in the promotion of the Bourbon reforms to heal the symbolic body of New Spain

Transatlantic transactions: writing hispanism at the centennial of 1892 by Diana Arbaiza( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation analyzes the emergence of Hispanist discourse surrounding the celebrations of the Fourth Centennial of the ⁰́Discovery⁰́₊ in Spain in 1892. These celebrations became the first moment after the independence of continental Latin America in which intellectuals from both sides of the Atlantic revisited their common history and articulated a transatlantic Hispanic identity based on shared language, race and ⁰́spirit.⁰́₊ Hispanism offered them an alternative to the Anglo-Saxon and French modernities from which they were excluded as peripheral not-yet-modern nations. Both Latin American and Spanish authors implemented the myth of Hispanic anti-materialist spirituality to paradoxically reinforce transatlantic commercial exchange. Latin American authors imagined themselves as more modern than Spain, but Hispanic identity provided a white genealogy and the promise of a common economic front. Spanish intellectuals, on the other hand, sought to regain cultural authority and so capture the profits of the Latin American markets. In spite of convergence over the "Hispanic" as a strategic identity with which to claim modernity, intellectuals did not produce a homogeneous discourse, but constructed multiple and conflicting interpretations of the Hispanic bond, deployed by each author in their own nation-building projects. Transnational identity became subordinated to national interests and ultimately would turn into an ideological battleground in the definition of cultural and economic power relations between the former colonies and the ex-metropole. The writings of Hispanism are an ideal point of access for reconsidering issues of postcoloniality, neocolonialism, and internal colonialism from the unique vantage point of transatlantic relations between Spain and Latin America
Race under dictatorship: the political articulation of blackness in the Dominican Republic and Brazil by Pamela Cappas-Toro( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I open my discussion with an introduction in which I provide a historical and cultural background to understand how race and dictatorship functioned in these regimes. I argue that the instruments of control adopted under colonial rule, especially those implemented during slavery, were preserved and rearticulated during these dictatorships to politically oppress and subjugate black subjects. I also discuss the main theoretical concepts that frame my discussion. Chapter one examines visual representations of black bodies in newspapers such as La Nacin (1945) in the Dominican Republic and Acervo Folha (1975) in Brazil. I show how black bodies are depicted as foreign subjects through demarcations of difference, exoticism, and objectification. Chapter 2 explores literary constructions of Afro descendants through state approved newspapers, radio, and television communications in the novels Massacre River (1989) and Cidade de Deus (1997). In these novels, mass media is an essential tool for the regimes to project black subjects as criminal and undeserving citizens. Chapter 3 studies cultural citizenship through music in El hombre del acorden (2003) and Tenda dos Milagres (1969). These authors explore the ways in which Afro descendants used music to articulate new forms of politicized black identity. Chapter 4 examines Afro descendants religious practices in Del rojo de su sombra (1992) and Sangue de Coca Cola (1985). Afro descendant religions in these novels are represented as crucial cultural manifestations whereby black populations can openly denounce economic exploitation and demand equal citizenship under dictatorial regimes. Finally, the epilogue offers insights into how the historical legacies of race and dictatorship in Brazil and the Dominican Republic are still being fought over

De la patria criolla a la nación Mexicana: Surgimiento y articulación del nacionalismo en la prensa Novohispana del siglo XVIII, en su contexto transatlántico by Jose M Lemus( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

FROM THE CREOLE COUNTRY TO THE MEXICAN NATION: THE SURGE AND ARTICULATION OF NATIONALISM IN THE PRINT JOURNALISM OF THE 18TH-CENTURY NEW SPAIN, IN ITS TRANSATLANTIC CONTEXT Spanish American creoles constructed an epistemological alternative to Europe. For such a project, 18th-century creoles relied on two forces that their predecessors did not enjoy: the cultural environment of the Enlightenment, which allowed them to question traditional sources of authority, and print journalism, which gave them the space to disseminate their ideas and construct an alternative identity. These New Spanish intellectuals who were linked to newspapers adopted the name literato and were an elite who sustained dialogues and debates in the viceroyalty, throughout the continent, and in different European countries, becoming a group whose discussions and alliances reached a transatlantic scope. As part of their rhetorical strategy for constructing both their own epistemology and a patriotic identity, they used particular words to refer to the political entity to which they belonged. Especially in the second half of the 18th century, the literatos privileged the use of certain nouns (like ⁰́country, ⁰́₊ ⁰́nation, ⁰́₊ and ⁰́₋America⁰́₊) when referring to New Spain. At the same time, they relegated the use of other nouns (like ⁰́₋monarchy, ⁰́₊ ⁰́₋court, ⁰́₊ and ⁰́₋viceroyalty⁰́₊) that carried a semantic charge associated with the colonial system. This dissertation studies the evolution of that patriotism in New Spanish newspapers and how it gave rise to a new idea of nationalism. In the last quarter of the 18th century, the literatos fostered the idea that what⁰́₄until then⁰́₄they had called ⁰́₋country, ⁰́₊ could be converted into a new nation. Their nation. What eventually would be called Mexico
