Jan Kajfosz

The book deals with manifestations and relics of magical thinking in the narrative folklore of Cieszyn Silesia (Teschen Silesia, Těšín Silesia). The point of departure is a phenomenological and social constructivist approach to human cognition. The author follows the cognitive dimensions of pre-modern folklore and popular texts in general. They are conventional in the sense that they are repeated in many variants inside one communicative group. Habituation based on more or less accurate reproduction of stereotypes (and corresponding experiences), motives, action scenarios, rationalizations, and motivations, is the source of relatively stable world image. The key concept developed in the book is redefined categorization understood as the simplification and stabilization of too complex and changing reality through shared narratives.

The Polish Reason of State in Austria

The Poles in the Political Life of Austria in the Period of the Dual Monarchy (1867–1918)

Series:

Dorota Litwin-Lewandowska

The monograph describes the history of the Polish diaspora in the Habsburg monarchy in the historical, institutional, legal, political, and organizational context. In the period of the Dual Monarchy (1867–1918), the Poles who lived under the Austro-Hungarian regime sought to influence the fate of their nation and state primarily through an active involvement in parliamentary life and state administration. The study of the social and political activity of the Poles in the Austrian partition reveals their political heritage, which influenced not only the Polish idea of patriotism but also the formation of the Polish political culture rooted in the European tradition of parliamentarism and constitutionalism.

Agnieszka Kluba

Is the prose poem revolutionary and subversive, or marginal and lyrical? What makes a piece of prose a prose poem? Is its identity vague or precisely defined? Can every poem written in prose be considered a prose poem, a form influenced by the brilliant invention of French literature and by authors such as Baudelaire or Rimbaud? Agnieszka Kluba discusses the prose poem by providing a comprehensive summary of the existing approaches to it, but also by proposing an original conception of this form of writing. Kluba does not limit herself to considerations within literary genre theory and remains close to the poetic texts she considers. Following the intricate line of the prose poem, in Polish and European literature, she carefully assigns to prose poetry a place in Modern literary history.

Isabelle Leveque Lamotte

La Dordogne, anciennement Périgord, est située dans l’historiographie en périphérie de la zone des familles souches du Sud-Ouest. Le mode de transmission et de reproduction familiale permet de comprendre comment s’organise la famille et comment se nouent les liens en son sein. Outre les relations juridiques, économiques, patrimoniales, est-il possible d’approcher les relations d’ordre affectif? L’étude porte sur les familles ayant vécu dans le village de Saint-Léon-sur-l’Isle, entre 1780 et 1839. Une lecture très fine des sources, notamment des actes notariés, met en évidence les logiques de comportement et leur évolution pendant une période de bouleversements qui malmènent les équilibres familiaux. Elle livre également un aperçu de l’intimité familiale, celle du couple en particulier.

Urban Now

A Human in the Face of Borderliness and Urbanisation in Juba, South Sudan

Series:

Maciej Kurcz

The subject of the study is the spontaneous city spreading process of Juba after the end of the civil war in South Sudan (2005). The book presents the complex dynamics of transformations within the new urban settings of post-war Juba. The viewpoint taken while describing these phenomena is the adaptation of an average migrant to a new urban environment. This was not an easy task. At that time the city was characterised by extremely harsh living conditions, harsh even for post-war South Sudan. Despite the difficulties, the city’s development was visible. The phenomenon of borderlineness – the closeness of the state’s borders – appeared to be helpful in this process. It influenced the effectiveness of human activities, it is an answer to the spontaneous city spreading processes – it brought danger, but most of all, infinite possibilities. The presented material comes from the author's ethnographic research conducted in Juba in 2007 and 2008.

La négation et ses emplois spéciaux en chinois mandarin

négation explétive, métalinguistique, métaconceptuelle et double négation

Baiyao Zuo

Cette recherche a pour objet quatre emplois spéciaux de la négation en chinois mandarin, à savoir la négation explétive, la négation métaconceptuelle, la négation métalinguistique et la double négation.

Les mécanismes de production et de compréhension de ces emplois de la négation sont les buts d’étude principaux de ce travail. En utilisant les théories et stratégies pragmatiques et cognitives, nous proposons différents mécanismes de production et de compréhension pour chaque emploi spécial. Basés sur cette analyse, nous proposons que les emplois spéciaux de la négation aient trois liens profonds : (i) la subjectivité est la motivation commune de la production des emplois spéciaux de la négation ; (ii) la conventionnalisation influence tous les emplois ; (iii) la compréhension des emplois spéciaux dépend du contexte et est dirigée par la recherche de pertinence optimale.

Les résultats de ce travail pourraient inspirer l’analyse typologique de phénomènes négatifs analogues dans des langues différentes ainsi que les recherches futures sur la négation en chinois. Les chercheurs dans le domain pragmatique pourraient également y trouver des argumentations intéressantes reliant les théories pragmatiques et les emplois de la négation.

Nach der Einsprachigkeit

Slavisch-deutsche Texte transkulturell

Series:

Diana Hitzke

Postkoloniale Konstellationen lassen sich nicht (mehr) in das Eigene und das Andere, in das Originäre und das Nachgeahmte, in ein Hier und Dort auseinanderdividierenden. Sie sind geprägt von Verflechtungen, Hybri-disierungen und wechselseitigen Aneignungsprozessen. In diesem Band analysiert die Autorin Texte von Jurij Brězan, Irena Brežná, Mascha Dabić, Róža Domašcyna, Olga Grjasnowa, Barbi Marković, Olga Martynova und Aleksandar Tišma. Sie zeigt auf, dass alle Werke sich mit multiplen Zuge-hörigkeiten, Mehrsprachigkeit und Übersetzung auseinandersetzen. Die Texte dekonstruieren Grenzen sprachlicher und kultureller Zugehörigkeit, thematisieren aber auch Diskriminierung, Rassismus und Antisemitismus. Damit beschreiben sie mehrsprachige Welten jenseits von hegemonialer Einsprachigkeit.

Psychoanalysis – the Promised Land?

The History of Psychoanalysis in Poland 1900–1989. Part I. The Sturm und Drang Period. Beginnings of Psychoanalysis in the Polish Lands during the Partitions 1900–1918

Series:

Paweł Dybel

The book is the first systematic study of the beginnings of psychoanalysis on Polish lands in Galicia (Austria-Hungary) and Congress Poland (Russia) during the partitions of Poland in the years between 1900 and 1918. The birth of the movement was presented on a broad cultural background, as an element of the assimilation processes among Polish Jews. At the same time, Freud's and Jung's theories began to gain popularity in Polish medical, philosophical, artistic and literary circles. By 1918, over a dozen articles on psychoanalysis had been published in Polish scientific and philosophical journals. Freud himself was vitally interested in this process, sending Ludwig Jekels to Krakow in the role of – as he wrote – an "apostle" of his theory in the circles of the Polish intelligentsia.
