1. Almuhammadi, Anas Hamed. English Language Instructors’ Perceptions of Their Professional Development and Teaching at King Abdulaziz University.

Degree: PhD, Teacher Education, 2015, Florida State University

This study focuses on how instructors at the English Language Institute, ELI, at King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia, perceive the programs of professional development programs and how do they perceive those programs' value on their teaching. This qualitative study uses an interview protocol to explore participants' opinions to reach thematic findings. Findings discuss the importance of communication between providers of professional development and beneficiaries. There is also a discussion on the necessity of building professional development programs on instructors' needs. Findings also show how professional development programs should focus on reform teaching approaches to help EFL instructors. While the ELI strives to make excellent professional development plans, instructors think that the ELI should communicate better with instructors and reach to them with their programs' offerings. Instructors also think that the ELI should focus on their instructors' needs to help them in overcoming challenges of daily teaching such as the focus on the progression of students and the need to focus on reform-teaching practices.

2. Colón, Jennifer A. Mothers and Sons in Hispanic Short Fiction by Women: A Quarter Century of Erotic, Destructive Maternal Love.

Degree: PhD, Modern Languages and Linguistics, 2003, Florida State University

During the last quarter century, the traditional division of works in Spanish into Peninsular versus Latin American has become obsolete. In a global literary market, increasing attention should be paid to themes or tendencies within genres. These short stories - "Omar, amor" by Cristina Fernández Cubas, "Viaje" by Luisa Valenzuela, "Ayer" by Herminia Paz, "Historia de amor" by Cristina Peri Rossi, "Piel adentro" by Griselda de López, "Yokasta" by Liliana Heker, "Yocasta" by Alejandra Basualto, and "Yocasta confiesa" by Ángelina Muñiz-Huberman - are published between 1982 and 2000 and address the mother-son relationship in mythical contexts from the unique perspective of the mother, thus reversing the tendency to view them from the perspective of the emerging masculine identities. Drawing on the feminist and psychoanalytic theories of Julia Kristeva, Adrienne Rich, Nancy Chodorow, Melanie Klein, and Donald Winnicott, this eclectic approach shows the role of the mother as it relates to rearing a son. It recognizes that the female's development as an individual continues to unfold as she experiences the stages of motherhood which culminate not in the physical separation at birth, but in the emotional separation of the child as he enters adulthood and is reborn as a separate and distinct entity from the mother. Her role as the mirror has ended. The mother desires to maintain her mirror status with her son and struggles with the greatest incest taboo: that between mother and son. If he fails to comply with his innate matricidal drive, described by Kristeva, the dutiful mother kills him so that he may be reborn as an individual. Thus the mother witnesses and even provokes a cycle of birth-death-rebirth in her son. This study explores the mother-son theme as written by both well-known and lesser-known women authors from a variety of countries. In fact, the chapters are organized by mythical theme rather than geographical origins of the authors. Chapter One is "Kali, the Mother Goddess," Chapter Two is "Echo, Voice of Narcissus," and Chapter Three is "Yocasta, Mother of Oedipus." The chapters expose the previously ignored mother's perspective of the son.
