Event Re-cap: PoeTEA, Quechua & Kreyòl Showcase

This past September 13th, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies celebrated a night of languages and culture. Our Quechua & Kreyòl showcase included presentations by language instructors Odi Gonzales (Quechua) and Wynnie Lamour (Haitian Creole).

Students also shared poetry and participants enjoyed a playlist curated by Haitian-American DJ Sabine Blaizin, as well as delicious food and tea. It was a wonderful coming together of poets and community and a testament to the cultural relevance of the Indigenous and Diasporic Language Consortium.

Please enjoy a video re-cap of the event below:

Profesor de CLACS presenta estudio crítico de la versión quechua del Quijote

Post and interview by Raúl A. Rodríguez Arancibia,MA Candidate at CLACS – Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU

Para más información sobre la presentación del estudio crítico del Dr. Odi Gonzales en NYU el 18 de noviembre de 2015 visite http://ow.ly/Ufutn.

En Latinoamérica, una región con una amplia población indígena, en las últimas décadas las traducciones de textos de la lengua dominante, castellano, hacia lenguas indígenas se han ido incrementando. En muchos casos, esfuerzos similares hand  promovidos por las políticas de multiculturalidad de los respectivos gobiernos. A su vez esto ha problematizado la posición del traductor en una sociedad en la cual el acceso a la producción de conocimientos ha estado sesgada a un grupo privilegiado no-indígena. En las últimas décadas, la emergencia de intelectuales indígenas ha hecho más dinámico y fructífero, tanto el traducir, como sus fines del mismo y compromisos. Estas nuevas posiciones de enunciación, más allá del clásico pensar latinoamericano desde su “heteregeneidad”–contenido en los trabajos de los 80’s y 90’s de Ángel Rama, Néstor García Canclini y Antonio Cornejo Polar—han mostrado que también dentro de aquel grupo que fue subalternizado hay posiciones críticas y un creciente debate.

En 2005, Demetrio Túpac Yupanqui, laureado traductor peruano publicó el segundo volumen en quechua de “El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote De la Mancha ” (1615) con el título “Yachay sapa wiraqucha dun Qvixote Manchamantan.” En este contexto de intercambio y en ocasion del cuarto centenario de la publicación original de “Don Quixote”, el Dr. Odi Gonzales peruano quechua hablante profesor de la NYU presentará una forma de mirar al texto Túpac Yupanqui desde aquella pluralidad del mundo indígena del cual el también es parte. La presentación del estudio crítico del Dr. Gonzales se llevará a cabo el miércoles, 18 de noviembre a las 6pm en NYU en una charla titulada “Juicio Oral: Los Entuertos del Quijote en la Versión Quechua.”  En esta entrevista, el Dr. Gonzales nos habla sobre su charla.

QUECHUA DIALECT IN TARABUCO, BOLIVIA

Posted by: Gladys Camacho Rios – MA Candidate at CLACS / Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU

I have come to Bolivia to gather data in two Quechua-speaking communities: one in the town of Tarabuco northwest of Sucre, and the other in Toro Toro north of the city of Potosí. Specifically, I am interested in doing a post-acoustic analysis of the uvular sound effects in high vowels /i u/ comparing the Quechua dialects of these two communities.

I started in Tarabuco which is the center of the Yampara culture. To get there, I flew to the city of Sucre, the constitutional capital of Bolivia. Tarabuco is located 64 kilometers from Sucre and it is known for its colorful knitted fabrics.
When I got to the community, I looked for Quechua-speaking subjects originally from Tarabuco to record them. I met a young girl, Emiliana, with whom I spoke in Quechua the entire time. She was very friendly and helped me find other Quechua-speaking subjects.

A Successful Quechua Night with Filmmaker Gabina Funegra

1610866_894333003922532_637536265200100234_n

On January 30, filmmaker and academic Gabina Funegra joined the Runasimi Outreach Committee of NYU for a screening of the director’s award-winning documentary “Quechua, The Fading Incan Language.” In the film, Gabina — herself Peruvian but currently living in Australia — documents her journey to the town of Huallanca in the Peruvian Andes. It is here that Funegra explores the fading Quechua language, which her mother spoke but did not pass on to Funegra herself. After the film, NYU Quechua professor Odi Gonzales facilitated an enlightening Q&A with Gabina, which spilled over into an intimate reception where conversations about Quechua, language preservation and Andean culture continued well into the night.
