As the father of cinematic Surrealism, extensive critical attention has been devoted to Luis Buñuel’s cinema. Much has been written about his first Surrealist films of the 1920s and 1930s and the French art movies of the 1960s and 1970s, and analysis of his films has tended to be through the lens of male heterosexuality. However, here for the first time is a queer re-reading of Buñuel’s Spanish-language films allowing us to view Buñuel’s cinema through a lens of queer spectatorship. Focusing on the films Buñuel produced in Mexico and Spain during the 1950s and 1960s, Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla argues not that Buñuel’s films have a homosexual subplot, but that there are multiple forms of identity, subjectivity and sexuality present in these five representative films. The approach may at first glance seem unusual, given Buñuel’s more habitual association with reactionary attitudes, but Gutiérrez-Albilla successfully and convincingly demonstrates that for all his prejudices Buñuel complicates questions of desire and subjectivity in surprising ways._x000D_ Gutiérrez-Albilla covers Los olvidados (1950), Viridiana (1961), El ángel exterminador (1962), Ensayo de un crimen (1955), and Él (1952), providing the opportunity for detailed analysis. Through these films Gutiérrez-Albilla challenges traditional analysis and proposes that we can re-read Buñuel’s Spanish-language films as invalidating the prevalent model of gender, sexual identity and subjectivity within patriarchal and heterosexist ideology. Instead Gutiérrez-Albilla offers the reader a new methodological and theoretical framework to re-read Buñuel’s films: he draws on psychoanalysis and contemporary queer and feminist theory, comparing them with Surrealist-informed visual arts. _x000D_ 'Queering Buñuel ' brings together the fields of film studies, feminist and queer theory, Hispanic studies, psychoanalysis and art theory. Gutiérrez-Albilla succeeds in reconceptualizing Buñuel’s Mexican and Spanish films beyond geographical, historical and disciplinary boundaries, questioning not just how we see Buñuel, but also how we see cinema._x000D_

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,7, Universität Passau, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Un filme más personal y arriesgado que levantó ámpulas entre periodistas e intelectuales mexicanos al mismo tiempo que consagró al cineasta en el panorama internacional” 1 „Los Olvidados“ entstand während der so genannten mexikanischen Phase Luis Buñuels. Er floh vor dem Bürgerkrieg aus Spanien nach Mexiko und drehte dort in den Jahren 1946 bis 1955 zahlreiche Filme. In dieser Zeit lernte Buñuel mit wenig Aufwand und vor allem sehr geringem Budget, beeindruckende Filme zu drehen. Anfänglich musste er sich der Kritik stellen, ausschließlich rein kommerzielle Filme zu drehen, um die kosten schnellstmöglich wieder aufzufangen. Bei der genaueren Betrachtung der Filme der mexikanischen Phase aber wird deutlich, dass Buñuel es trotzdem vermochte, Elemente späterer Filme in diesen Werken einzubauen, beziehungsweise bestimmte Rituale oder Verhaltensweisen von Schlüsselfiguren folgender Filme bereits hier aufzubauen. Ihm gelang es, trotz der Budgetbeschränkung und Konzentration auf kommerziellen Erfolg, seine Motive und Themen nie aus den Augen zu verlieren. Er selbst bestätigt dies in folgender Aussage: „[...] I was forced to make cheap films. But I never made a film which went against my conscience or my convictions.” 2 Dies zeigt sich auch im hier analysierten Film „Los Olvidados“. 1950 drehte Buñuel den Film, der eigentlich dokumentarisch die Geschichte der verwahrlosten Straßenkinder von Mexiko - City erzählt, und dennoch kein sozialkritisches Dokument im eigentlichen Sinne darstellt. Buñuel stellt in diesem Film die brutale, ungerechte und scheinheilige Welt dar, die er hinter den schönen Fassaden der großen Weltstädte sieht. Der Film zeigt die irrationale und absurde Seite des Lebens an sich. Einzig die Träume und Wünsche der Protagonisten halten diese am Leben. Der Titel des Filmes verweist bereits auf das eigentliche Thema: Die von der Gesellschaft vergessenen (Kinder), ließe sich hinzufügen. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es nachzuweisen, dass „Los Olvidados“ durchaus sozialkritische Aspekte aufweist, diese aber in einer ungewohnten Form dem Zuschauer präsentiert werden. Wie und auf welche Weise dies geschieht, soll im Folgenden geklärt werden, da sich nach wie vor Kritiker uneins sind über diese Fragestellung. Um diesen Aspekt ausreichend erörtern zu können, müssen sowohl die Hauptprotagonisten, als auch zwei Schlüsselsequenzen näher betrachtet werden.

By the end of the Spanish Civil War in March of 1939, almost 500,000 Spaniards had fled Francisco Franco's newly established military dictatorship. More than 275,000 refugees in France were immediately interned in hastily constructed concentration camps, most of which were located along the open shorelines of France's southernmost beaches. This book chronicles the cultural memory of this war refugee population whose stories as camp inmates in the early 1940s remain largely unknown, unlike the wide dissemination of the literature and testimony of the survivors of Nazi death camps. The hidden history of France's seaside camps for Spanish Republicans spawned a rich legacy of cultural works that dramatically demonstrate how a displaced political community began to reconstitute itself from the ruins of war, literally from the sands of exile. Combining close textual analyses of memoirs, poetry, drama, and fiction with a carefully researched historical perspective, Spanish Culture behind Barbed Wire Investigates how the most significant literature of the early post-civil war exile period appropriated the concentration camp as a discursive vehicle.

The story revolves around its two central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army and his unfaithful ensign, Iago. Given its varied and enduring themes of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance, Othello is still often performed in professional and community theatre alike, and has been the source for numerous operatic, film, and literary adaptations...El personaje principal, Otelo, se presenta piadosamente, a pesar de su raza. Esto era poco habitual en la literatura inglesa en tiempos de Shakespeare, la cual presentaba como villanos a los moros y otros pueblos de piel oscura. En esta obra Shakespeare evita cualquier discusión respecto del islam. Otelo se ha destacado por su gran profundización en la retórica y la tragedia.

The law of work has evolved as a patchwork of legal interventions in the labor market, sometimes by statute, and sometimes through the common law of judicial decisions. Most law school curricula divide the law of work into three topical areas--Labor Law, Employment Law, and Employment Discrimination--and offer separate courses in each area. Labor law in the United States is understood to encompass the study of the National Labor Relations Act, the law governing union organizing and collective bargaining. It is the law of collective rights at work. Employment law refers to the statutes and common law governing individual rights at work. It ranges from minimum standards legislation to judicially created doctrines based in tort and contract law. Employment discrimination law deals with the statutes and interpretative case law advancing the antidiscrimination norm in the workplace. These statutes address the problem of status discrimination at work (e.g., discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin, ethnicity, religion, disability, or sexual orientation). A comprehensive study of the law of work also provides an opportunity to assess critically what form enforcement of rights should take. Should conflicts between employers and employees be channeled into private resolution systems such as collective bargaining or contractual arbitration, or is the public interest sufficient to justify committing administrative, judicial and legislative resources to it? What is the significance of casting employee rights as collective--and therefore entrusting their enforcement to an employee representative such as a union--versus conceptualizing them as individual? Must such a collective representative be independent of the employer, or do employer-initiated employee committees further worker voice just as effectively? Doesn't history also warn of the risks of subordinating individual interests to those of the collective, particularly in the context of a diverse workforce with minority groups characterized by race, ethnicity or gender? Accordingly, the casebook is called " Work Law" and it endeavors to present basic materials on each system of labor market regulation. The book identies core themes of conflict and concern in the workplace, canvass the governing law, and offer a vantage point for assessment. Several themes furnish the organizing structure for the book. The book asks how law should mediate the perennial conflict between employer and employee rights; what difference it makes whether employee rights are conceptualized individually or collectively; what significance the increasing racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of the workforce should have for legal policy; whether dispute resolution systems should be privatized (via collective bargaining or individual contract) or remain in the public fora (courts and legislatures); and whether law is the most effective way to address interests of employers and employees (as contrasted, for example, with human resource practices, employer initiatives, or employee self-help measures). The book will be most useful in Employment Law courses that address the significance of conceptualizing rights at work individually as opposed to collectively. Its strength is its refusal to categorize the law of the workplace in doctrinal boxes that may be out-of-date by the time the book reaches maturity. The book adverts to Labor Law principles at a number of points throughout the book, but at a policy level rather than a doctrinal level, as a way of introducing and evaluating an alternative model of employee representation; the book does not assume any knowledge of Labor Law on the part of teacher or student and makes no effort to provide a satisfactory substitute for a Labor Law text. The book offers some detail in the law of Employment Discrimination but does so primarily with an eye toward surveying the field and assessing antidiscrimination regulation as a response to an increasingly diverse workforce, rather than providing an in-depth study of Employment Discrimination principles. The text surveys the existing legal landscape, but it does not stop there. Work Law is an exciting and intellectually stimulating practice area because it is of necessity in a constant state of flux, responding to labor market innovations. Flexibility in thinking is vital to this area of practice.
