Engaging the emotions in Spanish culture and history by Luisa Elena Delgado( )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rather than being properties of the individual self, emotions are socially produced and deployed in specific cultural contexts, as this collection documents with unusual richness. All the essays show emotions to be a form of thought and knowledge, and a major component of social life--including in the nineteenth century, which attempted to relegate them to a feminine intimate sphere. The collection ranges across topics such as eighteenth-century sensibility, nineteenth-century concerns with the transmission of emotions, early twentieth-century cinematic affect, and the contemporary mobilization of political emotions including those regarding nonstate national identities. The complexities and effects of emotions are explored in a variety of forms--political rhetoric, literature, personal letters, medical writing, cinema, graphic art, soap opera, journalism, popular music, digital media--with attention paid to broader European and transatlantic implications"--
La nación singular : fantasías de la normalidad democrática española (1996-2011) by Luisa Elena Delgado( )

12 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

España vive una crisis sin precedentes que ha reducido los problemas de la ciudadanía a cifras y balances que no cuadran. Una crisis que ha enrarecido un ambiente político y mediático en constante ajuste de cuentas, literal y simbólico. A pesar de ello, políticos y personajes públicos de todo signo instan a la ciudadanía a superar «particularismos» para unirse firmemente en defensa de «lo que nos une». Lo que se espera, de hecho, es la adhesión de una ciudadanía cohesionada y dócil a lo que se determina que constituye el «sentido común». La cultura democrática española se sostiene sobre una fantasía de normalidad y consenso que requiere la identificación incuestionable con el todo como única forma de «ser en común». De esta manera, cuando una parte importante de la ciudadanía, por motivos diferentes, no se siente incluida en ese todo, la discrepancia se interpreta como una fractura que debe ser soldada para preservar la cohesión social y nacional. Este libro plantea la posibilidad de analizar la situación con una lógica diferente: la lógica del disenso, que sostiene que la cualidad esencial de la democracia consiste en la apertura a formas singulares de pertenecer a ella, así como en la posibilidad de cuestionamiento de las formas de compartir, dividir, adjudicar y relacionarse dentro de lo común
Social-ecological Systems of Latin America : complexities and challenges by Luisa Elena Delgado( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human societies are influencing nature in such a way that their independent analysis is no longer suitable. Fortunately, social-ecological systems provide a conceptual framework for the interconnected analysis of societies and ecosystems. However, in the case of Latin America, the complexity of social-ecological processes undermined a much-needed compilation of theoretical concepts, methods and case studies. Increasing readers understanding of such systems using a postnormal approach, the book discusses current concepts and methods with examples of studies from eight countries. It is a useful resource for social actors, government decision makers and scholars

La cultura de las emociones y las emociones en la cultura española contemporánea (siglos XVIII-XXI)( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta colección de estudios evidencia que las emociones, a menudo identificadas con propiedades individuales del ser, son inseparables de los contextos culturales y sociales específicos en que se expresan e interpretan. Tomados en su conjunto, estos ensayos coinciden en la interpretación de las emociones en cuanto formas de conocimiento y de pensamiento, así como en su valoración como un componente fundamental de la vida social, incluidos aquellos momentos en que fueron relegadas a la esfera privada y al ámbito de lo femenino, como sucedió a partir del siglo XIX. Se abordan temas tan diversos como el concepto de la sensibilidad en el siglo XVIII; la preocupación decimonónica por la transmisión y los efectos sociales de las emociones; la articulación de los afectos en la retórica política y en las nuevas manifestaciones culturales de principios del siglo XX, como el cine; la codificación emocional de la masculinidad y la sexualidad femenina, así como la movilización de las emociones políticas en relación con el patriotismo y el nacionalismo en los siglos XX y XXI. Los efectos y la complejidad de la expresión de las emociones se estudian a la luz de una amplia variedad de documentos, lenguajes y formatos, en los que se incluyen el discurso político, los textos literarios, las cartas personales, el cine, la telenovela, la doctrina y los informes médicos y los nuevos medios digitales

Escribir la democracia : literatura y transiciones democráticas by Anne-Laure Bonvalot( )

1 edition published in 2019 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage questionne la place et le rôle de la littérature dans les processus de transition de la troisième vague démocratique des années 1974-2005, depuis les transitions latino-américaines des années 1980 jusqu'aux expériences les plus récentes des révolutions démocratiques des printemps arabes. Les études de spécialistes venus de disciplines et d'horizons culturels divers (France, Espagne, Portugal, États-Unis, Royaume-Uni) permettent de saisir à l'échelle globale les mutations contemporaines des enjeux de la démocratisation dans le champ littéraire, et explorent la construction politique d'un monde commun dans l'expérience de la littérature

The national award in narrative literature and the role of art in democratic Spain (1977-2011) by Sally Perret( )

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

In this dissertation, I examine the history and function(s) of the National Award in Narrative Literaturea prize that is sponsored by the Spanish stateto highlight the role the award has played in the creation of "national cohesion" and therefore in maintaining a specific idea of Spain and of Spanish literature in the democratic period. Although the issuing of the National Award is just one of many practices that informs how the concept of the nation is understood, I argue that it is one of few that allow us to analyze ways in which literature has explicitly contributed to the image of Spain as a multicultural, yet cohesive nation-state
Fictional matters: death, emotion and representation in nineteenth-century Spain by Megan Kelly( )

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

Ultimately, my dissertation demonstrates that the liminal status of emotion, mediating between the body and the mind, makes it an appropriate vehicle for representing death, that liminal space between being alive and being dead, between the material and the ideal. As emotions inherently speak to the body, represented emotion facilitates a more comprehensive representation of the otherwise unknowable state of death
Common ground: Nature, gender and labor in representations of rural communities in Spanish literature, 1895-1920 by Kristina Pittman( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study spans a divisive period in Spanish history, 1895-1920, in which the 1898 Disaster and the uneven and lagging processes of modernization exacerbated differences between Spain and other European nations, differences between regions and classes within the country, and differences between the sexes. In their search for answers to the social question and ideas for national regeneration, the natural environment provided many artists and intellectuals with a subject that could potentially represent common ground among Spaniards in a tangible, relevant and seemingly authentic form. At the same time, the traditional identification of nature as female and its perceived subordination to culture since the Enlightenment complicate its role as the source of national regeneration during a time when Spain's place relative to other European colonial powers was in sharp decline and the nation was further disgraced by its failure to keep up with the processes of modernization that were boosting the power and influence of foreign countries. My analysis of the representation of commoning and its relationship with the natural environment in Jose Mar©Ưa de Pereda's Pe©łas arriba, published in 1895, Vicente Blasco Ib©Ł©łez's Ca©łas y barro, published in 1902, Pio Baroja's El Mayorazgo de Labraz, published in 1903, and Concha Espina's El metal de los muertos, published in 1920, explores what constitutes community practices, what sustains or impedes these practices and who they include or exclude. Through the lenses of ecocriticism and ecofeminism, I consider how representations of the natural environment during the fin de siglo period reflect social hierarchies and gender differences. I ask how the processes of modernization in Spain are represented as a challenge to the consolidation of the nation by alienating the rural population from the natural environment that provides the structure for social life while failing to offer an alternative for their endangered local communities. Finally, I consider what these texts by important canonical authors say about the roles of literature and education in community practices in a country with high rates of illiteracy

Precarious embodiments: Narratives of disability and belonging in Spain of the crisis (2005-2015) by Emily DiFilippo( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Precarious Embodiments focuses upon literary and cultural production of the Spanish State between 2005 and 2015, the precarious years of the economic crisis. I examine how differences in ability as well as gender and sexual identity work together to determine the paradigm of viable citizenship in a climate of crisis. I investigate how the requirements of binary gender and heterosexuality inform the construction of the medically-approved, able body, helping to construct a ⁰́₋normalized⁰́₊ subject⁰́₄an ideal citizen whose body is capable of work and full participation in society according to traditional gender roles. I examine neoliberal capitalist ideologies of productivity and self-reliance, interrogating the way these concepts are intertwined with requirements for gendered citizenship. The unifying thread of this corpus is the representation of non-normative subjects at risk of becoming superfluous to society. It is unsurprising that these figures should abound in cultural production in time of capitalist crisis. Considering that the capitalist economy itself is destined to concentrate wealth in the hands of a few, it is inevitable that some percentage of humanity will become excessive to the system, and that this percentage will increase with a stagnation of the global flow of capital. Among those most expendable are those with disabilities who cannot participate in the labor market, and caregivers of the disabled⁰́₄often women⁰́₄who are also barred from ⁰́₋productive⁰́₊ work. Others who lack a valued place in industrial society include women not fulfilling the role of mother and caregiver and LGBTQ people not engaged in reproductive sexuality. In reading selected narratives of non-conformity, I ask how these vulnerable individuals are either included or excluded from notions of Spanishness, attentive to the manner in which their precarious lives tell the story of the economic crisis in Spain
La herencia intransmisible. Din©Łmicas de sucesi©đn en la novela espa©łola (2006-2017) by Mario Lopez Gonzalez( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation studies the succession dynamics as manifested in novels by canonical ⁰́₈Cultura de la Transici©đn⁰́₉ authors, published during the years framing the recent crisis (2006-2017), in an attempt of understanding the logic of the generational block evidenced in Spanish society during that period. In a social environment of massive protests against the dysfunctionality of the Spanish democratic system, the cultural elites castle themselves in their defense of both the system and their very own hegemonic position, thus authoritarianly refusing to pass the baton to the younger generations. In order to explore this idea, I examine these elites⁰́₉ conceptualization of the relation between their own time and that of their parents. My analysis suggests that the generation that led the Spanish Transition to democracy claims to have created a brand new temporality, resulting from their very own personal and generational formation process ⁰́₃ a temporality forged in their own image and likeness. In these narratives, the new temporality redeems unpaid debts and unresolved conflicts left by the previous temporality, thus closing it down, that is, dissociating themselves from it. Furthermore, the younger generations are depicted in these works as infantile, unable to succeed them. Having redeemed the past and cancelled the future, the ⁰́₈Cultura de la Transici©đn⁰́₉ generation clings to their hegemony in present continuous tense. Finally, I contrast these narratives with those by other voices outside the dominant cultural paradigm. These latter question the lineal succession of independent, unrelated temporalities, suggesting on the contrary that the alleged new temporality is actually an updated patriarchal and authoritarian traditionalism
Antonio Saura's Monstrifications: The monstrous body, melancholia, and the modern Spanish tradition by Fernando Herrero Matoses( )

The findings from this analysis suggested that the strengths of the evaluation were that it provided good contextual understanding of the program, fairly represented multiple stakeholders, and that the program theory structure aided the readers' understanding of the program and led to new insights about how programs might be improved. As for weaknesses of the evaluation, the study found that the contextual factors surrounding the mentoring program were not explored as broadly as they should have, evidence of causuality was not presented, and the easy convergence of multiple stakeholder program theories suggested a possible bias. The thematic analysis found three themes that highlight the importance of context in program evaluation, the difficulty of representing program complexity, and the importance of identifying clear criteria of merit and worth and clarifying their sources

Geografias de conocimiento y poder: La construccion especial de la Real Audiencia de Quito by Clara Valdano( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Geografas de conocimiento y poder: La construccin espacial de la Real Audiencia de Quito en el perodo colonial" analyzes the construction of the Real Audiencia de Quito as a political, economic, corporeal, and patriotic space. Quito refers to the city, the village, the reign, the province, the point of reference, and the audience. Quito has fluctuated over time: It was perceived in the 16th and 17 th centuries as an ideal space for religious and political colonial expansion, whereas in the 18th century Quito was represented as a productive space for scientific and economic exploration. Most of the studies on colonial Ecuador have paid attention to the social and ethnic historiography of this colonial territory, but this dissertation underscores that the study of space contributes to our understanding of the manner in which the Real Audiencia de Quito was conceived by colonial authorities as well as by its colonial subjects. Through the analysis of textual and visual material, I contend that conflicting political agendas and practices of subjugation transformed the Real Audiencia de Quito into the object of numerous discourses; namely those pertaining to political governance, science, and economics
