Everyone Has an Accent

"When we say that someone speaks with an accent, we generally mean one of two things: a nonnative accent or a so-called nonstandard accent. Both can have consequences for their speakers. In other words, it is worth acknowledging that people discriminate on the basis of accent within their own language group, as well as against those perceived as language outsiders. The privileged status of the standard accent is, of course, rooted in education and socioeconomic power."

Chair, Silvia Spitta Interviews Lucrecia Martel

"LucreciaMartel’s Zama (2017), set on the outer colonial frontiers of the Spanish Empire during the last decade of the eighteenth century, pushes traditional notions of a colonial adventure tale to its parodic limits. Based on Argentine writer Antonio Di Benedetto’s 1956 novel of the same title, the film follows the plight of Don Diego de Zama (Daniel Giménez Cacho), a Creole (defined as a Spaniard born in the Americas and, therefore, considered a second-class citizen) magistrate in the service of the Spanish crown. Resentful of his demotion to the provinces, he yearns for a transfer to the city of Lerma, where his wife and family live, and where he hopes to escape the deadening routine of his assignment."

Rafael Nuñez ’18 presents his Honors Thesis at the University at Buffalo

Rafael’s Honors thesis investigates the renaissance of Argentine tango and its poetics of resistance in the 21st century. In his presentation, Rafael connects his findings to the overall theme of this year’s conference which is  “Spectacular, Spectacular! Truth, Violence, Politics and Performance”. He connects the political resistance found in contemporary tango to Guy Debord’s theory of the spectacle in order to demonstrate the processes by which cultural expressions can subvert traditional capitalist hegemony.
