Letters from Filadelfia (eBook, ePUB)
58,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For many Spanish Americans in the early nineteenth century, Philadelphia was Filadelfia, a symbol of republican government for the Americas and the most important Spanish-language print center in the early United States. In Letters from Filadelfia, Rodrigo Lazo opens a window into Spanish-language writing produced by Spanish American exiles, travelers, and immigrants who settled and passed through Philadelphia during this vibrant era, when the city's printing presses offered a vehicle for the voices advocating independence in the shadow of Spanish colonialism.The first book-length study of Philadelphia publications by intellectuals such as Vicente Rocafuerte, José María Heredia, Manuel Torres, Juan Germán Roscio, and Servando Teresa de Mier, Letters from Filadelfia offers an approach to discussing their work as part of early Latino literature and the way in which it connects to the United States and other parts of the Americas. Lazo's book is an important contribution to the complex history of the United States' first capital. More than the foundation for the U.S. nation-state, Philadelphia reached far beyond its city limits and, as considered here, suggests new ways to conceptualize what it means to be American.

Outside the Imagined Community?
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Outside the Imagined Community is concerned with the current discourse on Latin American immigration in the United States, as represented in four recent socio-political publications. It identifies the key burning issues within the debate and analyzes in how far the linkage of the discourse on immigration and that on national identity contributes to the constitution of the current image of Latino immigrants. The publication draws from Michel Foucault's theory of discourse, which defines discourse as a regulated way of speaking that produces knowledge at a particular historical moment and is strongly related to issues of power. Outside the Imagined Community goes on to examine the metaphoric mappings underlying the current immigration discourse and by doing so shows the crucial role that socio-political publications play for the production of immigration-related knowledge and a perceived crisis in U.S.-American identity.

The Promotion and Distribution of U.S. Latino F...
33,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book documents the barriers to success encountered by U.S. Latino films over the past three decades, as their proponents sought to secure distribution deals and prove the films' worth as commodities. Over time, more studio and studio specialty divisions have acquired and circulated them, but many film distributors still do not understand the nuances of the U.S. Latino market and how to promote these films. The book includes interviews with marketers, publicists, and producers, and secondary research material from trade publications, newspaper articles, and websites, centering on marketing strategies, release dates, and box office figures. One of the first academic works to analyze the concurrent social and industrial factors within the U.S. Latino community and the larger Hollywood marketplace, this book examines and illuminates the history of U.S. Latino films.

Seminar paper from the year 1999 in the subject American Studies - Literature, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0/A, University of Dusseldorf 'Heinrich Heine' (Anglistik II, Amerikastudien), course: Latino/a Literature, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the following paper I want to examine the traits of Native and Roman Catholic religion described in Rudolfo Anaya`s novel Bless me, Ultima1, which was first published by TQS Publications, Berkeley, California in 1972. It shall be revealed how the different characters in the novel deal with the Mexican pagan past and the Roman Catholic influences which affect and determine their lives. I chose to examine the most important persons separately, to stress the individuality of searching a way through the number of beliefs which are offered to each of us during our lives. Nevertheless the complexity of personal relations and their mutual influences are regarded as well; although a comprehensive analysis would also have been possible without splitting the story. According to the fact that every person is dealt with individually, the conclusion shall provide the reader with an overall picture of the relationships between the main characters in the novel. Native religion touches the region of curanderismo and witchcraft, which certainly is an interesting chapter, but has to be dealt with only as far as it is necessary. On the other hand there is Roman Catholic religion, which the Spanish under Hernan Cortés brought to America. One chapter is dedicated to The Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of the Chicanos- the descendants of Indians and Spaniards. Bless me, Ultima as a work of the Mexican American author Rudolfo Anaya represents the religious opposites Mexican Americans have to deal with and it shall therefore serve as a source of examples to show the complexity of Chicano beliefs.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7 (A-), University of Tubingen (New Philology, Anglistics), course: HS: Latino/Latina Literature in the US, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The poem 'AmeRícan' by Tato Laviera is part of the poet's latest collection published in 1985. This work is, like his previous publications 'Enclave' (1981) and 'La carreta made a U-turn' (1979) considered as an outstanding example of 'Nuyorican' poetry, that is to say poetry written by Puerto Ricans living in New York. When trying to understand the poem, it is necessary to understand the circumstances in which it was written. Therefore, a description of the artistic and personal environment of Tato Laviera will be given and the Nuyorican movement will be examined. On this basis, the language and structure of the poem will be studied in detail, concentrating on vocabulary, bilingualism, the title and rhythm. In the third part, the themes and topics of the poem will be analysed with the help of Juan Flores' concept of the 'four definitive moments in the awakening of Nuyourican consciousness'1. Finally, all these aspects will be brought together in a conclusion in which the attempt of pinpointing Tato Laviera's view on Puerto Rico, America and his own identity will be made.
