1. Latinez, Alejandro. Narrativas de aprendizaje, narrativas de crecimiento: el personaje adolescente y los límites del discurso del desarrollo en Latinoamérica entre 1950 y 1971.

Degree: PhD, Spanish and Portuguese, 2006, Vanderbilt University

The validity of “development” in Latin America as a cultural force has not been thoroughly questioned – either by those from the industrialized world or by Latin American politicians, technicians, and military personnel. Within the Latin American cultural world, although the ideological effects of development have been considered, yet critics have neglected literary discourses. Recognizing the specific nature of development as a discursive construction and the adolescent character as a representation of the future of Latin American nations, this dissertation attempts to recognize the cultural discussion on the power of development, a key aspect of its modernity. The study shows the limits of development practices in Octavio Paz’s 1950 essay El laberinto de la soledad, Mario Vargas Llosa’s 1963 novel La ciudad y los perros, Clarice Lispector’s short stories and chronicles, José Lezama Lima’s 1966 novel Paradiso, and Elena Poniatowska’s 1971 testimony La noche de Tlatelolco. These narratives exemplify the interplay between the rhetoric of development and the ensuing literary responses: texts and contexts feeding each other through characters and plots. Additionally, the traditions of the Bildungsroman and picaresque give insightful commentaries on the society, subject development, and integration with the nation, relating in different ways education and survival in preparation for the adolescent’s tasks for the future. All these aspects together conjugate to examine critically this chapter of the modernity. In this perspective, the incorporation of a social category such as "development" in the narrative creates a different registry within the Latin American literary tradition. The relationship between this symbolic representation of an adolescent group – the Latin American nation’s future – and the goal to mold them into industrious “good citizens” or “new men” exposes the interpellation of the development ideology inherent in Latin American literature and culture. Hence, this study reveals both the continuity and disruption of development discourse during Post War Latin America culture, using examples exemplary of the period. Advisors/Committee Members: William Luis (committee member), Earl Fitz (committee member), James Lang (committee member), Cathy Jrade (Committee Chair).

2. Martinez-Zuniga, Sandra Monica. Cultural factors affecting food preference: the case of tarwi in three Quechua speaking areas of Peru.

Degree: MA, Latin American Studies, 2007, Vanderbilt University

Cultural factors affecting food preference and tarwi consumption in three departments of the Peruvian Andes were evaluated. This study suggests that tarwi consumption in Peru is location specific. Moreover, the contact between “lo capitalino” and “lo serrano” affects people’s food preferences. Andahuaylas, which has the least amount of contact with the capital, was the place where tarwi was eaten openly and proudly. Cusco, even though further from Lima, has many new “capitalino” businesses because of the tourist industry, resulting in shame at the fact that they still eat tarwi. In Ayacucho, the consumption of tarwi has disappeared. Furthermore, Ayacucho suffered more from terrorism than any other department in Peru. Thus, even secondary factors like civil turmoil and tourism, which act indirectly, still modify food preference and dietary choices. Finally, there are cultural factors not always visible to the naked eye, such as whether a food is inherently “cold” or “hot,” “male” or “female,” or a food fit only for the poor or acceptable for the middle class. Advisors/Committee Members: Edward Fischer (committee member), Bettina Lippert (committee member), James Lang (Committee Chair).
