Lingüística experimental y contraargumentación

Un estudio sobre el conector del español


Laura Nadal

Esta monografía sustenta experimentalmente estudios teóricos sobre el significado procedimental y la contraargumentación. El análisis expuesto hace posible determinar desde una perspectiva cognitiva, a partir de datos obtenidos mediante la lectura controlada por eyetracking y mediante tests de comprensión, el valor del conector argumentativo sin embargo durante el procesamiento de enunciados. Se confirma que esta relación discursiva necesita ser marcada: el uso de sin embargo asegura la adecuada reconstrucción de una implicatura basada en la cancelación de inferencias. La investigación muestra que la combinación de enfoques teórico-descriptivos con el enfoque experimental constituye un método eficaz para el desarrollo de estudios aplicados (traducción, enseñanza de lenguas o escritura).

Enlivening Faith

Music, Spirituality and Christian Theology


Edited by June Boyce-Tillman, Stephen Roberts and Jane Erricker

The relationship between Christian theology and music has been complex since the early days

of the Church. In the twentieth century the secularization of Western culture has led to further

complexity. The search for the soul, following Nietzsche’s declaration of the Death of God has

led to an increasing body of literature in many fields on spirituality. This book is an attempt

to open up a conversation between these related discourses, with contributions reflecting a

range of perspectives within them. It is not the final word on the relationship but expresses a

conviction about their relationship. Collecting together such a variety of approaches allows new

understandings to emerge from their juxtaposition and collation. This book will contribute to

the ongoing debate between theology, spirituality, culture and the arts. It includes contexts with

structured relationships between music and the Church alongside situations where spirituality

and music are explored with sometimes distant echoes of Divinity and ancient theologies

reinterpreted for the contemporary world.

Sophie Heine

While anti-European forces are still raging, pro-Europeans seem impotent and deprived of a strong, clear and convincing alternative. This book is an attempt to fill that void: reacting to the anti-European wave, it also outlines a strong criticism both of the current EU and of its advocates. Far from the Europeanist defence of the status quo, it proposes an original and radical project of European sovereignty. Its message is both critical and propositional.

This book is therefore original in its method, approach and content. It distinguishes itself from most of the literature on the subject by going beyond the narrow cleavage opposing mainstream anti- and pro- Europeans. In this general polemic, anti-European arguments usually promote a return to sovereignty at the national level, while pro-Europeans justify the existing EU configuration and its so-called "sharing" or "division" of sovereignty. Despite being clearly in favour of a deeper European integration in some fields, Sophie Heine refuses to throw away the classical concept of sovereign power. Relying on a rich literature and deploying a theoretical and strategic argument, she proposes to rehabilitate this notion at a supra-national level while avoiding the common traps of national sovereignty. This allows her to propose a redefinition of European federalism connected to her broader liberal approach.

Le constitutionnalisme environnemental

Quel impact sur les ordres juridiques ? - Préface de Stéphane Pierré-Caps

Edited by Jochen Sohnle

Environmental constitutionalism is founded on ideological doctrines, such as liberalism and environmentalism. It aims to enhance comparative law methods leading to the establishment of general principles that protect the environment within the constitution. This is the first book that presents the topic to European readers working in the field of environmental protection – involving members and organizations within civil society, policymakers, national and international officers, law students, and legal and non-legal scholars. The book begins with detailed studies of France, Germany, Switzerland, India and Brazil. Thereafter, it highlights the impact of the French Environmental Charter on administrative law, company law, and compensation methods for environmental harm. Finally, the book takes an unprecedented look at EU law, whose legal standards are discussed in light of environmental constitutionalism. The various contributions are written either in French or in English, as befits the comparative nature of the subject matter.

Le constitutionnalisme environnemental constitue un champ de l'analyse juridique qui souligne les fondements idéologiques (comme le libéralisme ou l'écologisme) de toute constitution. À cette fin, il valorise les méthodes du droit comparé pour construire des principes généraux du droit protecteurs de l’environnement. Ce livre est le premier sur cette thématique qui s’adresse spécialement à des lecteurs européens actifs dans la protection de l’environnement, y compris les membres de la société civile, les décideurs nationaux et internationaux ainsi que les étudiants et les enseignants-chercheurs, juristes et non juristes. Le livre commence à explorer la thématique à travers l’étude des systèmes de la France, de l’Allemagne, de la Suisse, de l’Inde et du Brésil. Il approfondit ensuite les répercussions de la Charte française de l’environnement sur le droit administratif, le droit des sociétés et les méthodes économiques appliquées au préjudice écologique. Enfin, les normes de l’UE sont revues à travers le prisme inédit du constitutionnalisme environnemental. Les différentes contributions sont écrites soit en français, soit en anglais, conformément à la dimension comparative du sujet

Voices and Visions

Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales

Kathryn Gray

Voices and Visions: Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales captures the perspectives of key Anglophone Welsh and Wales-associated poets who have emerged in the wake of devolution and Wales’s 1997 «yes» vote – or whose career profiles and development were consolidated in its wake. The post-1997 era has been a dynamic one – notably characterised by a striking gender shift, in which women are now at the very centre of Anglophone Welsh poetics. It has also been a period in which a number of idiosyncratic younger voices have emerged and established themselves both within Wales and further afield. Compelling and candid, these interviews examine poets’ practice and preoccupations, their native and elective poetic identities, their personal insights into a changing Wales, the prevailing conditions which may have enabled them, and their place within the wider firmament of British poetics. Voices and Visions: Interviews with the Contemporary English-Language Poets of Wales is a fascinating record of play, seriousness, ambition, and local and international interests from the point of view of some of Wales’s most significant contemporary poets. Poets included: Zoë Brigley, Sarah Corbett, Jasmine Donahaye, Jonathan Edwards, Dai George, Ian Gregson, Philip Gross, Meirion Jordan, Patrick McGuinness, Pascale Petit, Deryn Rees-Jones, Gwyneth Lewis, Rhian Edwards, Zoë Skoulding, and Tiffany Atkinson.

Edited by Margarita Alfaro Amieiro, Stéphane Sawas and Ana Belén Soto Cano

Le présent volume s’intéresse au phénomène de la littérature interculturelle en Europe depuis les dernières décennies du siècle passé jusqu’à l’actualité. Les onze essais réunis dans ce volume analysent différentes thématiques (déplacement, exil, déracinement, changement de langue, création littéraire et société d’accueil) traitées par des auteures aux optiques très variées en fonction de leur pays d’origine, l’Europe étant leur lieu d’arrivée.

Le terme xénographie féminine désigne une vaste constellation de situations de femmes liées à l’immigration, à l’exil et au voyage volontaire, dont la caractéristique principale est la rencontre avec l’altérité sous différentes manifestations (linguistiques, sociales, culturelles, artistiques et idéologiques). Les xénographies occupent donc une place privilégiée dans la littérature européenne contemporaine, articulée autour d’une diversité d’espaces et de champs littéraires révélateurs d’une identité européenne supranationale.

Les textes sont articulés autour de trois grands axes où les auteures étudiées montrent leur apport et leur originalité à la conception des xénographies féminines. Ainsi sont objet d’étude dans le premier axe, « Entre deux mondes », Fatou Diome, Marzena Sowa, Najat El Hachmi, Laila Karrouch et Kaha Mohamed Aden. Dans le deuxième axe, « Questionnements identitaires », sont abordées Calixthe Beyala, Sema Kiliçkaya, Fatima Gallaire et Anna Moï. Dans le troisième axe, « Figures du retour », figurent Hélé Béji, Fawzia Zouari, Éléni Dikaiou, Cypris Kophidès, Allain Glykos et Nahal Tajadod.

Ce recueil collectif offre une réflexion littéraire sur la réalité plurielle de la société européenne contemporaine en tant que terre d’accueil et de dialogue interculturel et montre le dynamisme et l’intérêt des productions littéraires produites par des femmes venues d’ailleurs.

Boom e dintorni

Le rappresentazioni del miracolo economico nella cultura italiana degli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta


Edited by Inge Lanslots, Lorella Martinelli, Fulvio Orsitto and Ugo Perolino

Cinquant’anni sono un segmento di tempo ragionevolmente collaudato per guardare indietro, nel tempo, senza il pericolo della nostalgia e senza il rischio di enfasi. Cinquant’anni ci separano dagli avvenimenti che gli autori di questo libro prendono in esame: il Sessantanove e poi, a ritroso, i fatti dell’anno precedente e quelli ancora prima, quando l’Italia si trova immersa dentro le trasformazioni della modernità. Nostalgia ed enfasi sono atteggiamenti nocivi allo sguardo dello studioso: la prima indulge verso un compiacimento emotivo che può finire nella retorica del come eravamo..., la seconda corre il pericolo di amplificare i dati, ingigantire gli esiti, falsificare la percezione. Entrambi i rischi si corrono quando si analizza un periodo felice e lo si mette soprattutto a confronto con un presente di minore spessore. Ma è un rischio da cui non sono stati toccati gli autori dei saggi radunati in questo volume. In nessuna pagina si avverte il sospetto del compiacimento e nemmeno l’ombra di una malinconica retrospettiva. Semmai è forte il tentativo di ricostruire un’epoca che ha i contorni del mito: ricostruirla settore per settore, dalla letteratura al cinema, dalla pubblicità alla comunicazione aziendale, dalla musica alla televisione, confermando una scelta di metodo che privilegia la dimensione politecnica del libro, il suo essere punto di convergenza di indagini sviluppate su forme e linguaggi diversi.

Now more than ever, students need support. To meet their needs, educators should encourage their students to break from the mainstream by inspecting their experiences, and therefore expressing their own values. This endeavor will lead students to make choices that are best for themselves and others. It is important to support students in both relating and connecting to society, and to have hope and joy for meeting the day full on.

Educators need to give their students the opportunity to reveal their life histories, experiences, perspectives, and expectations in ways that are themed with the educators' class curriculums. Doing so will naturally build inter-subjectivity. Increased inter-subjectivity leads to meaningful relationships and higher achievement. In turn, this will lead to stronger social relatedness and connectedness.

The purpose of Building, Maintaining, and Repairing Classroom Relationships is simple: to quickly build classroom relationships in a metaphorical, colorful, and creative way. This can be accomplished by theming curriculum with phenomenology, experience, and values clarification (PEVC) strategies. This book is set up in a concrete, sequential, and linear fashion, and is designed to meet the needs of a variety of educators and leaders. It is arranged to be browsed for quick reference for teachers who are busy and need relationship building strategies, fast.

This book covers two fields of research. The first part of the volume includes essays authored by Polish, German, Czech, and Ukrainian archeologists and historians on the genesis and unique nature of the roads whereby Christianization proceeded in Polish lands in the early Middle Ages in the context of the kindred processes underway especially from the 10th century in neighboring lands. The second part of this publication includes considerations on the politics of memory as applied to the beginnings of statehood in Poland and Kievan Rus’. Chosen examples reveal the uniqueness and the evolution of various politics of memory related to the founding myths of statehood in modern Poland, Russia, and Ukraine.
