Book Synopsis Finding Flamenco by : Stephany Borges
Download or read book Finding Flamenco written by Stephany Borges and published by Archway Publishing. This book was released on 2019-11-06 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In her teens, Stephany Borges saw her first flamenco show at Los Flamencos de la Bodega in North Beach, San Francisco. From the first note of the flamenco guitar and the first throaty cry of the singer, she knew she had found a world of music and dance that thrilled her to the core. She then studied with the legendary Isa Mura and Ernesto Hernandez until her mother put a stop to it because dancers rarely made a decent living. Borges chose another career path teaching English and creative writing. At around sixty, she retired from teaching at a California university, sold her house in Northern California, and moved to New Mexico. Though much rehearsed and carefully orchestrated, the reality of leaving her job, her community, and her home in the redwoods to live a new life in the high desert was not easy. And, then unexpectedly, she found flamenco. It never occurred to her that her abiding love of dance would be resurrected at this stage in her life. In Finding Flamenco, she shares the stories of her adventures and passions, telling her tales of loss, travel, friendships, relationships, and so much more.

Book Synopsis Women and Bullfighting by : Sarah Pink
Download or read book Women and Bullfighting written by Sarah Pink and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-07-12 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book investigates the popularity and success of contemporary women performers in bullfighting culture, which has been framed by a discourse of 'traditionalist' masculinity. This examination of the changing situation of women in the bullfighting world is used to explore the ways in which gender is represented, enacted and negotiated in contemporary Spain. The bullfight in the 1990s is in an ambiguous position: it is a 'traditional' performance in a changing consumer society. In order to survive, it needs to adapt itself to a wider social context and, in particular, to international media coverage. It is in this context that the current success of women performers is located. However, women performers are a contested phenomenon in the bullfighting world: there is heated debate over their acceptability, much of which focuses on the body. Moreover, the entry of women into the bullfight questions existing definitions of the sport's ritual structure and of gender relations in Spain. Thoroughly researched and compelling to read, Women and Bullfighting addresses these issues and argues that existing traditionalist approaches to gender, bullfighting and ritual in Spain need to be revised in order to locate women bullfighters in the context of a richly varied culture which is increasingly affected by the media and contemporary patterns of consumption. This provocative book will be of interest to researchers and students of anthropology, gender studies, sociology, cultural studies, media studies and Spanish studies.

Book excerpt: Travel and Teaching in Portugal and SpainA Photographic Journey is another in the series Stories I Told My Students. It follows the pattern of books listed above on Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico, and Colombia. The book tells the tale of travel in Portugal and travel and summer teaching in the Arizona State University summer program in Spain in 1987. The format of the book combines notes from the travel diary, vignettes on the history of the places visited, and in particular notes, on major literary figures like Lus de Cames or Miguel de Cervantes. Major universities like the University of Coimbra in Portugal and the University of Salamanca in Spain are highlighted. Emphasis is also given to places and figures of the Catholic tradition, like the Cistercian Monastery of Alcobaa in Portugal and the stories of Santa Teresa de Jess, San Juan de la Cruz, and Ignacio de Loyola in Spain. All are represented in the 256 photos in the book. Cities and places in Portugal are Lisbon, Belm, Sintra, Nazar, Batalha, Ftima, Leiria, Coimbra, O Porto, Viana do Castelo, and Guimares.

A side trip to the sanctuaries of Spain and France emphasizes Zaragoza, Barbastro of Opus Dei fame, Lourdes in France, and Loyola in the Basque Country. The book is written in a colloquial style, the author conversing with the reader, perhaps over a Vinho Verde from Portugal or a Clarete from La Rioja in Spain. One discovers adventures in travel time in Portugal, in Mlaga, and Madrid for classes and social life, and travel in other parts of Spain, all accompanied by a nice overview of history and culture.
