Poesía italiana contemporánea

Del Crepuscularismo al Neoexperimentalismo y la Neovanguardia

Series:

José Muñoz Rivas

Este estudio aborda distintas corrientes artísticas que conformaron la Poesía italiana del Novecientos, a partir de la obra de Guido Gozzano, uno de los autores que más ha influido en la poesía italiana de entre siglos. Y efectivamente, muchas de sus propuestas técnicas lo sitúan como precursor del Hermetismo italiano de los años treinta.

El autor analiza las poéticas de cinco protagonistas de esta poesía, desde Giuseppe Ungaretti a la obra de Alfredo Giuliani, teórico de la neovanguardia de los años sesenta. Además estudia con detenimiento distintas propuestas artísticas de autores como Cesare Pavese, Vittorio Sereni y Pier Paolo Pasolini, poetas que revitalizan las corrientes de pensamiento literario que se cruzan en la poesía italiana contemporánea, y que realizaron una literatura de altísima calidad artística.

Translation, Interpreting and Culture

Old Dogmas, New Approaches

Edited by Emília Perez, Martin Djovčoš and Mária Kusá

This book about the clash between old and new approaches to translation and interpreting focuses on the theoretical, methodological, empirical as well as paradigmatic tensions and intersections between various traditions in translation and interpreting studies. It does so not only from a generational perspective but also from geographical, sociocultural and political points of view, aiming to foster communication among them and reveal synergies between the latest research trends and pre-existing methodologies and approaches. It includes chapters on translation theory, history and criticism, interpreting in changing contexts, translation of texts that transcend genre, text type and media borders, and changes and challenges in translator and interpreter training. The book provides a platform to new voices in translation and interpreting studies and presents the ideas of traditionally less represented geographical areas in the mainstream of our discipline.

Fehlerquellen im Ermittlungsverfahren – ein rechtspsychologischer Diskurs

Eine dissonanztheoretische Untersuchung einseitiger Ermittlungstätigkeit bei Polizeibeamten

Series:

Vanessa Czuba

Die Ergebnisse polizeilicher Ermittlungen sind immer wieder Gegenstand medialer Berichterstattung und öffentlicher Diskussionen. Vornehmlich geraten dabei Ermittlungsfehler in den Fokus, die unter Umständen in einem Fehlurteil münden können. Damit einhergehend besteht die Gefahr einer Vielzahl nicht zu revidierender Folgen für alle Beteiligten. Ermittlungsfehler können unter anderem auf kognitiven Wahrnehmungsverzerrungen der Ermittler beruhen. Kognitive Dissonanz und ihre Reduktion sind dabei mögliche Auslöser, die einen Erklärungsansatz für eine (fehlerhafte) selektive Informationssuche der Ermittler bieten. Die Verfasserin untersucht dieses Phänomen unter Berücksichtigung rechtlicher und struktureller Besonderheiten.

The aim of this book is to take a look—in terms of communication—at the pandemic year, in which the normal flow of life was changed to abnormal throughout the world. An analysis has been made from different perspectives on public relations, advertising, cinema, mass media, and even interpersonal communication etc. We also examined the digital innovations that the Covid-19 pandemic brought to our lives and the changing behavior-attitudes associated with the pandemic.

This book aims to provide a picture of what happened in Turkey in terms of communication in the general panorama. It contains important information for communication academics, students, and anyone who is curious about what happened during the pandemic period in the coming years. We hope this book will contribute to the readership.

Elżbieta Perkowska-Gawlik

The book focuses on contemporary staff-centred mystery novels set in the academic domain, written by scholars who enrich the generic convention of the detective novel with their academic expertise. The author delineates the academic mystery genre conventions and their connection with the characteristics of both the classical detective novel and the academic (university) novel. The analysis shows that the academic mystery novel not only fills in the classical detective formula with academic discourse, university settings, and the characters and conflicts of academics from different echelons of the university hierarchy but also, and more importantly, refers to and comments upon the current situation of tertiary education.

From subordination to insubordination

A functional-pragmatic approach to if/si-constructions in English, French and Spanish spoken discourse

Series:

Cristina Lastres‐López

This book explores if/si-constructions in spoken English, French and Spanish, from a functional-pragmatic and corpus-based perspective. The analysis comprises instances of subordination, namely, conditional constructions – including prototypical cause-consequence patterns as well as other conditionals in which the conditional meaning is weaker – and cases of insubordination introduced by if and si. The theoretical framework is based on the three metafunctions distinguished in Systemic Functional Linguistics, and the data analysed are retrieved from parliamentary discourse and conversations corpora. The examination of conditional constructions and cases of insubordination in parallel offers new light on the characterization of if/si-constructions and their uses and functions in interaction.

Jewish Warsaw – Jewish Berlin

Literary Portrayal of the City in the First Half of the 20th Century

Series:

Alina Molisak

This book is a reflection on the Jewish presence in two European capitals, Warsaw and Berlin, in the first half of the 20th century. It was inspired by the works of Polish-Jewish, Yiddish and German-Jewish authors, as well as by the connections between urban spaces and the formation of different varieties of modern Jewish identity. The spotlight is cast on images preserved in literary works, namely those concerning separate Jewish neighborhoods and the sphere of cultural interethnic contacts. By attempting to restore the presence of Jewish inhabitants of both cities, destroyed by the Holocaust, it may become possible to see how the imagined communities of the time were created and preserved in the texts, even if, in reality, the metropolises were transformed into necropolises.

Edited by Peter Kosta and Katrin Schlund

Scientific insight is obtained through the processes of description, explanation, and prediction. Yet grammatical theory has seen a major divide regarding not only the methods of data eliciting and the kinds of data evaluated, but also with respect to the interpretation of these data, including the very notions of explanation and prediction themselves.

The editors of the volume organized a conference bringing together adherents of two major strands of grammatical theory illustrating this clash, traditionally grouped under the labels of formalist and functionalist theories. This book includes five keynote lectures given by internationally renowned experts. The keynotes offer insight into the current debate and show possibilities for exchange between these two major accounts of grammatical theory.

Cognition is a paradoxical process, from the moment of the formation of human subjectivity, through its relationship with the Other (or more precisely: l'autre) and with the world, to the ontological status of the world as such. This is what this book has at stake.

The book deals with selected aspects of poststructural thought which are introduced into the language of contemporary science, prose, and poetry. Such an enterprise is possible by treating philosophy, science, and poetry as languages which can try to enter into a dialogue through metaphors. This is the ground on which the project is implemented.
