1. Hogers, Fabian. Social justice of the Maya people in the Guatemalan education system.

Degree: 2017, Leiden University

During the Guatemalan Civil War, which lasted from 1960 to 1996, the indigenous Maya people of Guatemala have suffered immensely. Namely, 170.000 Mayas were killed and thousands have had to flee to Mexico. In 1996, the Peace Accords were signed and promises were made for social justice of the Maya people in the education system, which had excluded them for centuries. At the same time, the World Bank started sponsoring a programme of heavily decentralized schools in Guatemala, called PRONADE schools, where local communities could easily open and manage primary schools through funding of the Ministry of Education. This thesis seeks to test to what extent social justice of the Maya people has been realized in these PRONADE schools compared to traditional public schools. Thereby, the approach of the Word Bank in schooling will be evaluated, using Fraser’s three-dimensional model of social justice as an indicator of success. Fraser’s dimensions of social justice consist of economic justice, cultural justice and political justice, which have frequently been applied to the education system. Fieldwork in Guatemala was carried out in March-April 2017, combining source analysis with in-depth semi-structured interviews. The results of this research show that, although the goals of the World Bank of equal access to quality education and the provision of bilingual education might have been partially realized, social justice still has a long way to go in the Guatemalan education system. Realization of economic justice in the PRONADE schools remains ambivalent, however, the PRONADE schools did score slightly better on cultural and political justice compared to traditional public schools, although by far not satisfactorily. Advisors/Committee Members: van der Maat, Eelco (advisor).

2. Cruz Coutiño, José Antonio. Integración de secuencias discursivas. El caso de los mitos y leyendas de ascendencia maya en Chiapas (México), vinculadas a la creación del hombre y su entorno .

Degree: 2008, Universidad de Salamanca

Ubica socio-etnográficamente a la provincia de Chiapas (México), con base en información estadística de los años 2005 a 2007; describe la cosmología y la cosmogonía de los mayas clásicos y posclásicos, y define al mito desde la lengua, la cultura y la ideología, pero sobre todo, caracteriza los relatos míticos tradicionales, transmitidos oralmente, como unidades discursivas, macroestructuras semánticas y macroactos de habla , de acuerdo con las propuestas metodológicas de Teun A. Van Dijk. Selecciona y segmenta analíticamente trozos de nueve textos mayas coloniales conocidos, presenta una selección de 143 leyendas vigentes de los pueblos de ascendencia maya, relacionados con la creación del hombre y su entorno, y procede a su análisis conceptual, diacrónico y comparado.La tesis central de la disertación radica en que los relatos míticos tradicionales de los pueblos indios y mestizos de Chiapas, forman parte de su sincretismo religioso y cultural. Que están conectados con la mitología maya específica sobre la creación del hombre y su entorno; ascendencia u origen que se confirma al identificar coincidencias entre el summum cosmológico expresado en el conjunto de relatos y la esencia cosmogónica, cosmológica y religiosa de los antiguos mayas. En suma, los mitos que se expresan en la mayor parte de las leyendas contemporáneas de los pueblos de Chiapas, se corresponden, mutatis mutandis, con los tópicos fundamentales de la mitología vinculada al pensamiento cosmológico y antropocéntrico de la civilización maya, durante las diversas fases de su desarrollo histórico. Advisors/Committee Members: Zamora Salamanca, Francisco José (advisor).
