The future of long-form journalism and archives

Marco Braghieri

Digital news production has gained increasing relevance in the last two decades. This book focuses on the affordances of contemporary, accelerated digital news production, proposing a new conception and connection between long-form journalism and archives. This approach is based on a theoretical framework of the contemporary digital experience which is defined as the «Digital Landscape».

Moreover, this book focuses on platforms and their practices as influential factors regarding long-form journalism and archival production, distribution and consumption. Assessing the shared features of these two entities – long-form journalism and archives – this book investigates how they can be re-imagined and re-used within the contemporary digital landscape.

Using a combination of multiple approaches, such as digital methods, text analysis as part of critical discourse analysis and semi-structured interviews, this book identifies common traits between longform journalism and archives. It aims to satisfy the need for novel approaches in the analysis, organization and output of digital news content, identifying novel connections and pathways which can be adopted in order to establish a fuller comprehension of contemporary digital news production.

Although Mozart’s Don Giovanni (1787) is the most analysed of all operas, Lorenzo Da Ponte’s libretto has rarely been studied as a work of poetry in its own right. The author argues that the libretto, rather than perpetuating the conservative religious morality implicit in the story of Don Juan, subjects our culture’s myth of human sexuality to a critical rewriting. Combining poetic close reading with approaches drawn from linguistics, psychoanalysis, anthropology, political theory, legal history, intellectual history, literary history, art history and theatrical performance analysis, she studies the Don Giovanni libretto as a radical political text of the Late Enlightenment, which has lost none of its ability to provoke. The questions it raises concerning the nature of compassion, seduction and violence, and the autonomy and responsibility of the individual, are still highly relevant for us today.

Edited by Maria Jose Olaziregi Alustiza and Prof. Amaia Elizalde Estenaga

Este volumen reúne trece artículos firmados por investigadores del ámbito de las literaturas ibéricas, procedentes de distintas universidades del Estado Español y de los Estados Unidos. Todos ellos se centran en la literatura del escritor vasco Kirmen Uribe, cuya obra goza de un considerable impacto internacional, ya que ha sido ampliamente traducida. Se trata de la primera obra colectiva dedicada al estudio del trabajo literario de Uribe, y, a pesar de que su novelística sea el principal objeto de análisis de los artículos que contiene este volumen, también se incluyen trabajos que versan sobre sus libros de poesía, la literatura infantil y juvenil o estudios más generales sobre la poética del escritor. El compendio de artículos se inaugura con un interesante texto de Uribe, titulado "Manual de desobediencia", donde explica su actitud en torno al propio quehacer literario y los principios que han regido su andadura hasta el momento.

El objetivo de esta investigación consiste en analizar modalidades discursivas tales como ironía y parodia, el funcionamiento narratológico y redes de sentido en novelas del realismo social latinoamericano. El corpus es sometido a un estudio riguroso en que el autor descubre relaciones intertextuales y las clasifica como signos representativos en el marco de una vasta producción a la cual esos textos pertenecen. El estudio se lleva a cabo en base a herramientas de la Pragmática Lingüística y de la Sociocrítica. La lectura general enfatiza la manera en que los narradores construyen sus imaginarios desde voces dialógicas y monológicas. El trabajo describe la riqueza cultural de ciertas sociedades latinoamericanas, tradiciones, conflictos políticos e ideológicos así como también movimientos estudiantiles y obreros que combaten contra sistemas opresivos en el siglo XX. El análisis de los imaginarios sociales se traza como meta última reevaluar la relevancia del género.

Reframing Reformulation: A Theoretical-Experimental Approach

Evidence from the Spanish Discourse Marker "o sea"

Series:

Shima Salameh Jiménez

Reformulation studies offer a recent debate on reformulation and its semasiological-onomasiological treatment. Some researchers argue for a clear distinction between reformulation and other functions such as conclusion or correction; others defend the existence of different subtypes of reformulation based on such other functions, which are expressed by the same group of discourse markers in different languages. Both approaches are valid although their arguments and theoretical basis are opposed. The book presents an Eye-Tracking proposal to complement this debate experimentally. Results support an onomasiological approach to reformulation since experimental boundaries for each function (paraphrase, reformulation, conclusion and correction) have been detected.

Schwabstedt und die Bischöfe von Schleswig (1268-1705)

Beiträge zur Geschichte der bischöflichen Burg und Residenz an der Treene

Series:

Edited by Oliver Auge and Stefan Magnussen

Der Band umfasst die Beiträge eines 2018 in Schwabstedt veranstalteten Symposiums. Expertinnen und Experten aus dem In- und Ausland präsentierten aus archäologischer, historischer wie kunsthistorischer Perspektive erstmals eine umfassende Bewertung der bischöflichen Burg- und Residenzgeschichte in Schwabstedt. Die Autoren und die Autorin schlagen einen weiten Bogen von der Entstehung der Burg infolge der Übertragung Gottorfs an die Schleswiger Herzöge im Jahr 1268 bis zum Abriss des daraus hervorgegangenen frühneuzeitlichen Schlosses. Sie skizzieren dabei einerseits die überregionale Bedeutung, illustrieren jedoch auch das Wirken der Bischöfe vor Ort. Der Band ist somit ein wichtiger Beitrag für die stärkere Berücksichtigung dieses heute weitgehend vergessenen mittelalterlichen und frühneuzeitlichen Herrschaftszentrums in der regionalen wie überregionalen Geschichte.

Struggle of Faith and Reason: A History of Intolerance and Punitive Censorship

Part II: From Mediaeval Cathars to Giordano Bruno and Lucilio Vanini

Juhani Sarsila

Humanists look up to Hellas as the cradle of European culture. The book spans nearly five centuries of a later epoch of this worthy tradition. Starting with the awesome high-mediaeval Cathars, the exposition proceeds in chronological order. Eventually, we meet Giordano Bruno and Lucilio Vanini, both of them red-letter heretics. The work affords cognisance of a neglected branch of learning. History of morals in general, and that of the struggle of faith and reason in particular, provides in-depth insights into the allotted fate of dissentient man. A potentially fateful nexus appears to be interweaving between book and author. Organised religion is evermore based on the politically beneficial idea of anthropomorphism or metaphysical projection. For has Man not made God in his image?

Was der Verhaltensbiologie gelungen ist – nämlich die Entwicklung von einer beschreibenden zu einer erklärenden Wissenschaft – das sollte auch Ziel der Linguistik sein. Der Autor zeigt auf, wie sich dieses Ziel im systemtheoretischen Rahmen erreichen lässt. Zunächst ist das Grundlagenproblem unzureichender Begriffsdefinitionen und Testverfahren zu lösen, um zu korrekten Beschreibungen und induktiv abgeleiteten Gesetzmäßigkeiten zu gelangen. Dadurch lassen sich bereits viele neue Erkenntnisse gewinnen. Sodann kann man für empirisch ermittelte Sachverhalte nach Erklärungen suchen, die auf allgemeinen Prinzipien oder Erwartungen beruhen. Diese Suche ist unter anderem dann zumeist erfolgreich, wenn sie durch Symmetriebrüche und eine konsequente Faktorenanalyse erleichtert wird.

The research presents, first, a brief historical overview of the decades of political violence in Peru as well as relevant approaches to racial discrimination and miscegenation. From a hybrid approach appealing to Gender Studies, Feminist and Post-Feminist Studies, Cultural Studies, Subaltern Studies, Memory and Post-memory studies, we propose three axes of analysis through Rocío’s Silva Santisteban poetic and narrative works: The patriarchal system and gender inequality, sexual violence against women during the internal armed conflict and post-memory. It is an approach that attends to the analysis of the articulations between different systems of signs and discursive practices, literary or not.
