The Spanish Arcadia : sheep herding, pastoral discourse, and ethnicity in early modern Spain by Javier Irigoyen-García( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Spanish Arcadia analyzes the figure of the shepherd in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spanish imaginary, exploring its centrality to the discourses on racial, cultural, and religious identity. Drawing on a wide range of documents, including theological polemics on blood purity, political treatises, manuals on animal husbandry, historiography, paintings, epic poems, and Spanish ballads, Javier Irigoyen-García argues that the figure of the shepherd takes on extraordinary importance in the reshaping of early modern Spanish identity. The Spanish Arcadia contextualizes pastoral romances within a broader framework and assesses how they inform other cultural manifestations. In doing so, Irigoyen-García provides incisive new ideas about the social and ethnocentric uses of the genre, as well as its interrelation with ideas of race, animal husbandry, and nation building in early modern Spain."--
"Moors dressed as Moors" : clothing, social distinction, and ethnicity in early modern Iberia by Javier Irigoyen-García( Book )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In early modern Iberia, Moorish clothing was not merely a cultural remnant from the Islamic period, but an artefact that conditioned discourses of nobility and social preeminence. In Moors Dressed as Moors, Javier Irigoyen-Garcia draws on a wide range of sources: archival, legal, literary, and visual documents, as well as tailoring books, equestrian treatises, and festival books to reveal the currency of Moorish clothing in early modern Iberian society. Irigoyen-García's insightful and nuanced analyses of Moorish clothing production and circulation shows that as well as being a sign of status and a marker of nobility, it also served to codify social tensions by deploying apparent Islamophobic discourses. Such luxurious value of clothing also sheds light on how sartorial legislation against the Moriscos was not only a form of cultural repression, but also a way to preclude their full integration into Iberian society. Moors Dressed as Moors challenges the traditional interpretations of the value of Moorish clothing in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Spain and how it articulated the relationships between Christians and Moriscos."--
The Dialectics of Orientalism in Early Modern Europe( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uniting twelve original studies by scholars of early modern history, literature, and the arts, this collection is the first that foregrounds the dialectical quality of early modern Orientalism by taking a broad interdisciplinary perspective. Dialectics of Orientalism demonstrates how texts and images of the sixteenth and seventeenth century from across Europe and the New World are better understood as part of a dynamic and transformative orientalist discourse rather than a manifestation of the supposed dichotomy between the 'East' and the 'West.' The volume's central claim is that early modern orientalist discourses are fundamentally open, self-critical, and creative. Analyzing a varied corpus--from German and Dutch travelogues to Spanish humanist treaties, French essays, Flemish paintings, and English diaries--this collection thus breathes fresh air into the critique of Orientalism and provides productive new perspectives for the study of east-west and indeed globalized exchanges in the early modern world. -- Back cover

In her place: geographies of urban female labor in Spanish culture (1880-1931) by Maria Del Mar Soria Lopez( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation demonstrates how three aesthetic and ideological movements⁰́₄ such as costumbrismo, realism, and avant-garde⁰́₄construct characterizations of urban female workers in turn-of-the-century Spanish literature and culture as symbols of middle-class anxieties and desires as a reaction to experienced social and political instability in turn-of-the-century Spain. Costumbrismo, realism, and avant-garde highlight as the main social category from which writers such as Emilia Pardo Bazán, Benito Pérez Galdós, María Martínez Sierra, or Ramón Gómez de la Serna fashioned fictional urban working women⁰́₉s gender and work identities and their trajectories in various narratives. In particular, I claim that in these texts, the working woman⁰́₉s class conflicts with gender in the process of narrative signification, producing a multiplicity of contradictory meanings that expose turn-of-the-century bourgeois anxieties about women⁰́₉s emancipation and working-class unrest. My analysis of urban female working characters reveals that middle-class representations of working women result from a dominant conceptualization of class and gendered spaces in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Spain. For that reason, my thesis draws a geography of urban female labor through the analysis of the symbolic condensation of class, gender, and space in the cultural representations of urban working women. By doing so, I shed light on the ambivalent cultural location that working women have occupied in cultural representations of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Even though the construction and development of modern Spain could not have taken place without the participation working women⁰́₉s labor, this segment of the population has been ⁰́out-of-place⁰́₊ for too long in literary and cultural criticism. It is my hope that this dissertation will reposition these marginalized characters to their legitimate place in critical discourse
Fictional matters: death, emotion and representation in nineteenth-century Spain by Megan Kelly( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Furthermore, I argue that the emphasis on unresolved upward and forward movement speaks to the unnarratability of death as well as the equally irreconcilable notion of eternity
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
Constructing the Artistic Subject in Golden Age Spain by Carmen B Ripolles( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dissertation, I examine the development of artistic identity in Golden Age Spain by elucidating the cultural, social, and economic contexts which framed notions of the artist during this period. More particularly, I focus on the notion of artistic nobility as it relates to contemporary evolving aristocratic ideals. Seventeenth-century Spain was a period marked by the continuous reconfiguration of the traditional model of nobility. Through a close analysis of theoretical artistic discourses, popular portrayals of the artist, and actual artistic practice, I offer a critical re-assessment of the artistic assimilation of aristocratic values. I offer a new approach to studies of Spanish art by regarding artistic identity as an unstable and fluctuating category that is in constant dialogue with broader cultural, social, and economic frameworks, and the discourse of artistic nobility as an arena in which alternative forms of artistic identity could paradoxically be advanced. This entails detailed analyses of some of the issues surrounding noble identity in the Golden Age and how these permeated notions of the artist during this period. I also consider how, conversely, the artist became a particularly visible site where constantly changing aristocratic ideals could be embodied

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
