La chanson dans l'Espagne contemporaine (XIXe-XXIe siècles)

Variations, appropriation, métamorphoses

Series:

Edited by Marie Franco and Miguel Olmos

Les chansons populaires, les hymnes politiques, les chants traditionnels, les compositions savantes ou les morceaux produits au sein de la culture de masse ont en commun d’exprimer, du xixe siècle à nos jours, les combats ou les rêves des Espagnols ; ils témoignent également, dans leurs avatars successifs, des sentiments identitaires en évolution et des crises traversées. Les contributeurs de ce livre s’interrogent sur la chanson comme forme musicale autonome associant un texte à une mélodie et générant une pluralité d’expériences de partage et d’écoute, dans une perspective d’histoire culturelle qui s’attache à examiner les interactions de l’individuel et de l’émotionnel, du sensoriel, du collectif et du politique.

Les notions de « variation » et d’« appropriation » permettent d’éclairer cette nature mouvante en soi de la chanson, dans laquelle surgissent parfois les échos du passé, ou les traces d’autres « performances ». Interprétée, adaptée, traduite, parodiée ou tout simplement incarnée dans des voix et des corps différents, elle se caractérise par cette aptitude à se laisser transformer en profondeur au fil des époques, des crises et des variations de goûts.

Les articulations thématiques de cet ouvrage la présentent successivement, à travers quelques cas d’étude, dans sa construction comme spectacle et expérience sensorielle et intellectuelle, comme investissement collectif, comme outil mémoriel ou témoin des rapports aux modernités successives et, enfin, comme un enjeu technique, en vue de sa reproductibilité, qui s’accompagne toujours d’évolutions esthétiques, mais aussi économiques. Forme mouvante en soi, nourrie de voix individuelles et collectives, la chanson est l’expression ultime de la culture comme circulation et bouillonnement infatigables.

Quand Jacques et Paul se paraphrasent

Étude d'intertextualité entre 1 Corinthiens, Jacques et Romains

Series:

Jean-Baptiste Stern

Ce livre est une étude comparative, essentiellement lexicologique, de trois épîtres du Nouveau Testament : I Corinthiens, Jacques et Romains. La première partie rouvre le débat autour de Jacques, considéré, surtout depuis la Réforme luthérienne, comme peu conforme, sous certains aspects, à la doctrine paulinienne. L’examen des sources et de l’intertextualité permet sur ce point d’avancer de nouvelles hypothèses. La deuxième partie, qui met en parallèle Jacques et I Corinthiens, montre que le premier texte suppose une connaissance du second. Dans la troisième partie en revanche, où l’on confronte Jacques et Romains, il semblerait que ce soit l’apôtre Paul qui, pour un écrit jugé majeur, ait effectué des emprunts et subi des influences. Cette passionnante dynamique textuelle, fondée sur des interférences et similitudes, se comprend mieux si l’on tient compte des pratiques d’écriture du temps, et en particulier de la technique de la paraphrasis, propre à la rhétorique antique.

Sci-Fi

A Companion

Edited by Jack Fennell

What is Sci-Fi?

Science fiction is a non-realist genre that foregrounds a sense of material plausibility, insisting that despite seeming outlandish, it is consonant with history and the laws of nature. By turns subtle and bombastic, sci-fi revels in discovery and revelation, whether through human ingenuity or world-altering paradigm shifts. The same impulse informs both the idealism of Star Trek and the existential terror of Frankenstein.

Each chapter of this book examines a specific trope or theme through a different critical lens – including eco-criticism, feminism and historicism – while also providing a historical overview of the genre, from its disputed origins to the pulp era, the New Wave, and the exponential growth of Afrofuturism and Indigenous Futurisms. Revered masters such as Isaac Asimov, Octavia Butler and Iain M. Banks are considered alongside newer talents, including Rebecca Roanhorse, N. K. Jemisin and Kameron Hurley. Other chapters provide overviews of different media, from television (Doctor Who, Westworld) to comics/manga (2000AD, Métal Hurlant, Attack on Titan), video games (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) and theatre (Alistair McDowall’s X).

Sci-Fi: A Companion not only provides an accessible introduction to sci-fi for general readers and researchers alike, but also illuminates new approaches to a familiar genre.

Growth, Unemployment, Inequality and Poverty

Constitutional Courts in Post-Soviet States

Between the Model of a State of Law and Its Local Application

Series:

Jacek Zaleśny

In the book, authors from eleven post-communist countries analyse the specific legal and political character of the organs of the control of law constitutionality in post-Soviet states. This is done through explaining the legal and political character of those bodies as well as their place in the system of the state power. The authors also examine tasks assigned to those bodies, the manner of their establishment, the course of their work, the legal force of their decisions and the legal status of their members. In the conclusions, the authors refer to the optimisation of the political status of the organs controlling the constitutionality of law as organs of the protection of the constitution.

Research findings, conclusions and recommendations formulated in the book can be applied with a view to changing the mechanisms of the protection of constitutionality in post-Soviet states or presenting lawmakers in other countries with consequences of adopting particular legal solutions.

Language as an essential and constitutive part of national identity is what obviously gets lost in translation, being substituted by the language of another nation. For this reason, one could perceive national identity and translation as contradictory and proclaim a total untranslatability of the former. However, such a simplified conclusion would clearly deny the actual translation practice, where countless successful attempts to preserve the element of national identity can be testified. The authors of the book focus on the possibilities of various approaches to national identity as a research subject within Translation Studies. The authors hope that the variety of topics presented in this book will inspire further research.
