Estudio sobre el uso lingüístico en las familias chilenas, o de descendencia chilena, residentes en UK.

Hola a [email protected]!

Soy estudiante en la Universidad de Lausana en intercambio con la Universidad de Sheffield para un semestre. Estoy escribiendo mi HolaHellomemoria de Máster sobre el uso lingüístico en las familias chilenas, o de descendencia chilena, residentes en Sheffield.

Me interesa entender qué lenguas se usan en el ámbito familiar. ¿Dónde, cuándo y con quién se habla español o inglés? También, me interesa conocer tu percepción acerca de ambas lenguas, es decir, ¿qué representan y qué significan para ti? ¿En qué medida son importantes para ti?

Estas preguntas ayudarán a entender, por ejemplo, si es probable que el español sigua manteniéndose en las siguientes generaciones.

Para llevar a cabo mi estudio, necesito ponerme en contacto con personas dispuestas a responder a mis preguntas. Se harán entrevistas individuales de unos 30 minutos como mínimo.

Languages of Head, Heart and Home: The meaning of exile

546158_106592812812462_969625856_nMy name is Jasmine Gideon I am an academic researcher based in the Dept of Geography at Birkbeck, University of London and have previously worked with first generation Chilean exiles in the UK looking at questions of health and well-being. Based on some of the responses I received while doing this work I felt it would be useful to extend the project to subsequent generations of Chileans in the UK.

Through focusing on language ability in Spanish and English we are trying to understand the ways in which this impacts on the transmission of trauma from one generation to the next, how this impacts on well-being and what it means to be an exile – neither from ‘here’ nor ‘there’.

This is an online questionnaire that can be accessed via the following link.

Ana’s husband was taken by security forces and became one of the disappeared; she lives a life between reality and fantasy which he inhabits with her. Pedro was arrested in 1973 and taken to a concentration camp in the north of Chile; his journey to retrace his past and face his demons takes him back to the place, where he was incarcerated. Miguel came as a young boy with his parents; he reconnects with his roots as an adult and questions his identity as he struggles between his adopted country and the place of his birth. This is a powerful representation of a deeply moving story that takes you on a journey of struggle, hope, fear and determination, highlighting critical moments that changed a nation.

Written by Francisco Carrasco; this new theatre piece incorporates theatre, storytelling, live music, movement and multi-media as well as songs from the Chilean popular song movement of the time.

They tell their life stories, from their initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievements they were part of, and their personal experiences in the run-up to, and on the day of the military coup (Sept 11th 1973) and its aftermath.

Four Chileans with widely different experiences tell of the euphoria of being part of huge social advances, the repression they suffered, the solidarity they received, and their arrival in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.

The University of Warwick is pleased to invite you to a special evening of poetry and film to mark the launch of the project ‘Chilean Exiles and World University Service (WUS)’  on 25 May 2017 at 18.00 in the Warwick Arts Centre cinema.
