  • "Yo soy una drag queen, no soy cualquier loco". Representaciones del dragqueenismo en Lima, Perú

    Villanueva Jordán, Iván Alejandro (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Centro Peninsular en Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales, 2017-07)
    El estudio exploratorio sostiene que el dragqueenismo surge de procesos de representación por parte de las drag queens, mediante sus prácticas discursivas y la manera en que se exhiben frente a un público. Estas representaciones les permiten, en su dimensión productiva, establecer una base identitaria que, en una dimensión reactiva, las diferencia de otras identidades transgénero. El análisis de los datos obtenidos mediante entrevistas semiestructuradas a drag queens de Lima (Perú) permitirá identificar la manera en que articulan las representaciones en torno a la tradición, la poética y el arte del dragqueenismo.

  • Exploración sobre la inserción laboral de los intérpretes en el mercado peruano

    Argandoña Jara, Andrea; Martínez Morales, Zoila X.; Silupu Larronda, Dayana C. (Universidad de Antioquia, 2017-07-01)
    By the late 40's, the political scenario of the Second World War was mainly characterized by the high necessity to establish diplomatic relationships between the Axis and Allies powers. Within this framework, the Nuremberg trials were the scenario where simultaneous interpreting emerged. Since then, this industry has flourished differently around the world. In Peru, not many studies have been carried out on this professional activity. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to explore the employability process of interpreters in the Peruvian market. The researchers carried out eighteen interviews that explore the testimonies of interpreting graduates from two Peruvian universities: Universidad Ricardo Palma (URP) and Universidad Femenina del Sagrado Corazón (UNIFE). This paper was able to demonstrate that a successful job placement in the interpretation market depends on the appropriate management of soft skills, i.e. the effective use of contact networks, as well as technical and management skills.

  • Experiencias profesionales y percepciones sobre la subtitulación interlingüística en Lima, Perú

    Villanueva Jordán, Iván Alejandro; Hermoza Vega, Fiorella; Bravo Diaz, Monica; ivan.villanueva@upc.pe (Universidad de Antioquia, 2017-07-01)
    The following article explores the work experiences and individual perceptions of a group of professionals from Lima (Peru) regarding interlingual subtitling. Such study was conducted using qualitative methods. A total of twelve semi-structured interviews were made, including four groups of participants: companies and professionals of the translation field, as well as companies and professionals of the audiovisual communication field. Although participants believe that subtitling does not have an established market in the Peruvian capital, they do think that it is a niche with a growing demand. Likewise, there is also a distinction between the way translation and audiovisual companies and professionals work, particularly with regard to the subtitling process and the use of guidelines, as well as other criteria used to ensure the quality of the service.

  • “You better werk.” Camp representations of Rupaul’s Drag Race in Spanish subtitles

    Villanueva Jordán, Iván Alejandro; ivan.villanueva@upc.edu.pe (Consortium Érudit, 2015-04)
    Condragulations, fierce, realness, werk or «Shante, you stay» are only some of the expressions from the contestants’ lexicon of RuPaul’s Drag Race (RPDR), a popular reality television show that started airing in 2009 in the USA. Through an academic lens, the study of this type of expression was anecdotally called “lavender linguistics,” during the first explorations of the sexual minorities’ ways of talking. Since then and till now, concepts related to gender, sexuality, and the works of representation have influenced both linguistics and Translation Studies, which in turn has led to critical perspectives on translation, identity transfer, acculturation and, of course, the way language works. This paper begins by briefly referring to drag queens living in Lima, Peru, and how they have changed the way they talk to each other and about themselves. As will be argued, a cultural product such as RPDR and the necessary interlingual subtitling into Spanish –commercial or fan-made– have been influencing their linguistic engagement. Further on, the concepts of camp and camp talk will be presented as they were first introduced to Translation Studies with the work of Keith Harvey during the late 1990’s. Camp representations will be then analyzed in commercial and fan-made subtitles to reveal the semiotic and pragmatic constraints resulting from cultural-specific gay identities. From this first approach, new inquiries on audiovisual translations in general and identity acculturation in particular will be proposed.

  • Influence of Songs in Primary School Students' Motivation for Learning English in Lima, Peru

    Aguirre, Diego; Bustinza, Daisy; Garvich, Mijail (Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2016-01-26)
    Many studies have shown that using music and songs while learning a new language can be of great benefit to students in aspects such as grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. However, the use of songs in class as motivation to learn English is a subject that has not been explored thoroughly. The purpose of this study is to explore how the use of songs in English helps motivating students while learning English as a Second Language (ESL). The participants were primary school students at a private school located in the Lima Metropolitan Area. This study used a mixed-method design that included observations carried out by the research team and questionnaires completed by students. The results show that students are motivated to participate and become more engaged in classroom activities when songs are used in their English classes. This result was more strongly confirmed with the observations than with the questionnaires.
