The novel may be categorized as a neoslave narrative, telling the story of a slave girl, Cora, and her escape from a Georgia plantation using the “Underground Railroad” mentioned in the title. My working hypothesis takes cue from the explicit, literal rendering of the Underground Railroad in the text, which may be considered as symptomatic of Whitehead’s approach to the slave narrative convention, in that his novel discloses or makes visible aspects which, in slave narratives, were left unnarrated.</p> Paula Martín Salván ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 11 33 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.11-33 ‘White Trash’ Resistance, Women’s Interactions and Identity in Dorothy Allison’s Cavedweller. An Intersectional Approach <p>Considered a pioneer in unveiling the human aspect of ‘white trash,’ Dorothy Allison’s work has been centered on women resisting social oppression for being white poor in a male-dominating environment. Yet, her last novel, <em>Cavedweller</em>, presents women of all classes interacting to fight social stereotyping, and thus initiate a process of identity reconstruction. This article explores women’s resistance against white trash stigmatization at the juncture of class, gender, race and other axles of convergence in Dorothy Allison’s <em>Cavedweller</em>. Adopting Leslie McCall’s intersectional theoretical constructs, an analysis of women’s interactions through the figure of Delia, the mother-protagonist of Allison’s <em>Cavedweller</em>, within both the community and the family unit, serves as a tool to reflect upon social stigmatizing for the benefit of creating new identities.</p> Concepción Parrondo ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 35 55 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.35-55 Young Girls on the Move in Charlotte Smith’s Didactic Miscellany Collections <p>This paper analyses the didactic miscellany collections for young female readers by the English writer Charlotte Smith. In these texts, through dialogues and conversations, the young protagonists are seen to learn from their daily experiences of walking in the natural world. Smith’s texts also offer remarkable examples of girls on the move in another sense, in that some of the young female protagonists appear to be escaping from distressing family and financial circumstances, in search of better life opportunities.</p> Begoña Lasa-Álvarez ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-28 2020-10-28 41 57 76 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.57-75 Bibliometric analysis of utopian literature <p>Given the clear revival of the interest in literary utopias over the last decades, this study offers an overview of Utopian Literature through a bibliometric analysis using a database specialized in literature: ProQuest’s Literature Online. The results offer objective and quantitative information on the evolution of the genre in terms of research volume per year, on the most common document format, the most prolific authors, the most common languages of publication, the publishing houses and journals that have published the most, and these journals’ visibility. The study may be used as a starting point or reference document for young and established researchers, journal editors, and students.</p> Andrea Burgos-Mascarell ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 77 103 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.77-103 “An entire past comes to dwell in a new house”: Topophilia and Jeremiad in Joan Didion’s Run River <p>In this paper, I will analyse Joan Didion’s poetics of praise and mourning in her first published novel, <em>Run River</em>, understanding the Western landscape she presents in it as an instance of Gaston Bachelard’s idea of the childhood home as a felicitous, eulogised space. I will argue that Didion’s depiction of the Sacramento Valley and the struggle of the families inhabiting it to accept the changing face of the landscape results in a jeremiad narrative of the West as paradise lost. Reflecting on the limitations both of Bachelard’s discussion of the childhood home and of the West as a mythographic space, I will conclude by assessing Didion’s topophilia and her ambiguous stance as a Western writer.</p> Sofía Martinicorena ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 105 121 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.105-121 Post-Apocalyptic Redefinition of Homeless Spaces in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road <p>Homelessness undergoes an important change in a post-apocalyptical setting: it becomes the norm, the only reality for the survivors. Through a process of defamiliarization and reinterpretation of the new reality, space goes back to its mythical sphere, where a permanent sense of anxiety and distress dominates everything. In the present paper, a new vision of homelessness in the characters and spaces portrayed in <em>The Road</em> is presented. Focusing on the new spatial conception will offer a fresh perspective to interpret how a father struggles in his attempts to instill in his boy a strong system of moral values while travelling through the vastness of a space without boundaries that only has one defining and common characteristic: the road.</p> Samuel Tascón Olmedo ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 123 142 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.123-142 Anglicisms in the Field of IT (GitHub and 3D Slicer): Multilingual Evidence from European Languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) <p>This paper provides evidence of the noticeable adoption of Anglicisms in the professional field of IT by different European languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish). Two different domains, GitHub and 3D Slicer, have been examined, and a multilingual glossary has been created with the contributions of European and African engineers and technicians cooperating in the European project MACbioIDi. This multilingual glossary is a useful tool for engineers, as it provides equivalent terminology in these five languages. The use of the studied Anglicisms is documented with interviews to different engineers to verify the oral uses, and the written uses are recorded with examples in context taken from different Internet websites and forums. This is an interdisciplinary research that involves people from different areas of knowledge (linguists, engineers and technicians), and from different continents (Africa, America and Europe).</p> Carmen Luján García Soraya García-Sánchez ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-10-26 2020-10-26 41 143 171 10.24197/ersjes.41.2020.143-171 O’Donnell, Peadar. ¡Salud!
