The Murcian student investigates in her study the figure of Elizabeth Bennet, the protagonist of Jane Austen’s novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’
The UNED of Tudela hosted the II ‘Urania’ Congress of Young Researchers, in which five of its ten winners are students from the Region of Murcia. During the event, 28 scientific works selected from among the 58 proposals received from different parts of Spain were presented. The 28 finalist studies were carried out by 40 students from schools and institutes in Navarra, Madrid, the Valencian Community, the Region of Murcia and Castilla-León.
Of the ten awards, five went to students from the Region, four from the IES Los Albares de Cieza and one from the IES Prado Mayor de Totana. The first prize, endowed with 1,000 euros, went to Carla María Martínez Moxó, a student at the IES Los Albares de Cieza, who presented her research work entitled ‘Elizabeth Bennet: the permanence of a literary archetype on contemporary screens’.
In her study, the Murcian student investigates the figure of Elizabeth Bennet, the protagonist of Jane Austen’s novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and how she has been transferred to the cinema screens in the last 30 years. The work combines two subjects of analysis: on the one hand, the nature and characteristics of the literary heroine converted into an archetype and, on the other, the way in which this figure was approached in the adaptations to the screen, preserving or not its breadth of registers, and the fundamental reading of both the work itself and its main character.
