2. Metcalf-Bergeron, Darlene. Building Bridges for Women Through Service-Learning: Bringing Students and Communities Together To Combat Domestic Violence in Honduras.

Degree: MA, Liberal Studies, 2013, University of Maine

This thesis defines service-learning and domestic violence, while describing how bringing students and communities together through service-learning courses can build and has already built bridges for victims of violence against women. Collaboration is essential in the quest to raise awareness about domestic violence through education. This thesis will demonstrate through data and photojournalism this collaboration between students of SPA/MLC Service-Learning Classes of UMaine from 2006 through to and including 2011. As the themes in this thesis develop the reader will also begin to question what lies just beyond our borders and behind closed doors for women of the twenty-first century. There are two compelling quotes that say in a few words what this thesis is all about. Isaac Newton stated, “We build too many walls and not enough bridges.” We (women) are often lost in society behind those walls, living in the shadows of forceful and oblivious patriarchal societies and communities. In order for these women to take a stand and feel empowered to demand equality, say nothing about their human rights, the entire community needs education: education of the what and why and when of violence against women, and then the how and where and who of combatting such violence against women. First we have to ask ourselves: What is violence against women? Why does violence against women happen? When do acts of violence against women occur? And then, we need to follow-up with: How can violence against women be prevented or greatly reduced? Where do we go from here? Where do we start? Who needs to take responsibility and who needs to step up and lead the society and communities toward equality for women and intolerance for violence against women? Violence against women is being perpetrated each and every day, but building bridges through education is a fundamental and vital component in combating this societal malaise. As Ralph Ellison points out, “Education is all a matter of building bridges.” “We build too many walls and not enough bridges.” Isaac Newton “Education is all a matter of building bridges.” Ralph Ellison Advisors/Committee Members: Kathleen March, Mazie Hough, Renate Klein.

3. Rave, Maria Eugenia B. Magical Realism and Latin America.

Degree: MA, Liberal Studies, 2003, University of Maine

This work is an attempt to present a brief and simple view, both written and illustrated, concerning the controversial concept of Magical Realism for non-specialists. This study analyzes Magical Realism as a form of literary expression and artistic style by some Latin American authors and two artists. First a definition of this term is given, in addition to a definition of other, related terms. Mention is made of the origin of the term in general and a short account of the history and its use is provided. There are other, related, concepts that critics, authors and artists believe have contributed to its development. The German art critic Franz Roh is said to have been the first to use this term officially, due to the necessity of providing a suitable title for the new art form. Continuing with its development are Miguel Angel Asturias, Angel Flores, and especially Alejo Carpentier. Also included are the commentaries of Gabriel Garcia Mikquez, one of the most notable authors of Latin America identified with Magical Realism, those of the Chilean author Isabel Allende, and the commentaries of the critics Enrique Anderson, Seymour Menton, Massimo Bontempelli and the French surrealist Andr6 Breton. There are several different ways in which the term Magical Realism has been used in Europe and especially Latin America. The use of Magical Realism as a means of artistic and literary expression continues to prevail for now, because while there exist problematic situations or changes in normal life in the countries of Latin America, there will always be inspiration for the creators and a motive to express their feelings. Its use will disappear for periods of time and will reappear at other times, as if it were manipulated by the magic of life. At the time that Magical Realism is observed, other styles will also be seen. But this is the one that many prefer and which will prevail. A large part of this project consists of the 26 works of art that are the Magical Realism interpretation by the author of this project Maria E. Rave Advisors/Committee Members: Kathleen March, Michael H. Lewis, Owen F. Smith.
