    The perpetuation of the masculine-feminine dichotomy in La plaza del diamante : an analysis of the representation of gender by Withrow, Kira Rose Chase

    En este estudio, discutiré cómo La plaza del Diamante de Mercè Rodoreda representa una visión de la Guerra Civil española, incluyendo la pre- y posguerra, como un conflicto no militar ni político, sino de género. Para ello, este estudio se centra en el análisis de las relaciones abusivas contra la mujer, prestando especial atención a cómo la dicotomía masculina-femenina afecta a los personajes femeninos. Más aún, este proyecto analiza cómo esta dicotomía limita tanto a hombres como mujeres en los distintos contextos políticos y sociales que transcurren desde la Segunda República (1931-36), hasta la dictadura franquista (1939-75). En relación a estos contextos, y sin olvidar la Guerra Civil como punto de inflexión histórico entre estas dos etapas, este estudio analiza cómo los papeles de género vacilan dinámicamente entre la tradición conservadora—vinculada al régimen franquista—y la liberal—asociada al proyecto democrático de la Segunda República, superando toda concepción estática del género en la España del siglo XX.

    ¿Héroe o monstruo? : La ambigüedad de heroísmo y monstruosidad del campesino Español durante los siglos XIX y XX by Lyng, Gabrielle Sara

    ¿Puede un monstruo ser un héroe y viceversa? En la sociedad europea y campesina durante los siglos XIX y XX ésta era una de las preguntas que la gente solía hacerse.

    Martha Gellhorn and Maria Teresa Leon : exilic intellectuals with different political messages because of what they leave behind by Hutcherson, Sarah

    Martha Gellhorn (1908-1998), an American writer and journalist, and María Teresa León (1903-1988), a Spanish writer and activist, happen to be two women writing during the Spanish Civil War. They also happen to be in relationships with the renowned authors: Ernest Hemingway and Rafael Alberti. However, the reason for comparison is not founded in their gender nor their relationships with their famous literary husbands. The point of comparison that is intriguing lies in the fact that they are both intellectuals in metaphorical exile who bring double perspective to their writing, according to the theories of Edward Said, a Palestinian-American theorist. Through analyzing how León and Gellhorn bring their double perspectives to their writings, the paper will show how because their metaphorical exiles are different, the way in which they deliver their political messages in their writings varies.

    Theft as occupation : assessing the relationship of crime with unemployment rates and benefit expenditure in Spain by Mahan, Laila

    This paper will examine the relationship that unemployment benefit expenditure and unemployment rates have on crime rates. The study will focus on Spain, but will include analysis of five other European Union member states in the years 1993 to 2012. In times of unemployment and poor economic health, more individuals choose to perform criminal acts to make ends meet. We will use data from the European Commission and OECD databanks to create a reduced-form OLS model that is controlled for time. We found that this reduced-form is insufficient for analyzing the complex behavioral economics that go into the financial motivations for committing a crime. Our research did present opportunities and guidelines for further research to be done focusing on Spain’s metropolitan districts.
