Abstract

The presence of religion in Greek literature has been thoroughly analysed in the most relevant historical and philological studies. Nevertheless, there exists a lack of detailed research on the tension between “religiosity and irreligiosity” which starts to become apparent particularly in Classical Athens. Therefore, this volume aims to focus on the appearance of irreligious elements in the most important literary genres of Classical Athens: drama, oratory and historiography. After a scientific update of those contributions especially relevant to our subject, we provide commentary on selected passages from the genres mentioned above to illustrate the significance of irreligious terminology in the literature of Classical Athens. The methodological principal we have used is the verification of the irreligious terms in the texts by means of inductive criteria which form the basis of our commentaries. An epilogue completes this work: the reflections of the most significant posterior authors, from Plato to Plutarch, on the “irreligious problem”.

A comprehensive collection spanning five decades of full-length book reviews and short synopses by Giovanni Tabacco, whose scholarly concerns were never separate from a lifelong engagement as an exacting critical reader. Inspired by wide-ranging historical interests and with a special emphasis on issues of power and culture, these essays provide a valuable commentary to the progression of Medieval Studies during the twentieth century.

Abstract

This volume tells the story of the case study genre at a time when it became the genre par excellence for discussing human sexuality across the humanities and the life sciences. A History of the Case Study takes the reader on a transcontinental journey from the imperial world of fin-de-siècle Central Europe to the interwar metropolises of Weimar Germany, and to the United States of America in the post-war years. Foregrounding the figures of case study pioneers, and highlighting their radical engagements with the genre, the work scrutinises the case writing practices of Sigmund Freud and his predecessor sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing; writers such as Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Weimar intellectuals such as Erich Wulffen. There result new insights into the continuing legacy of such writers, and into the agency increasingly claimed by the readerships that emerged with the development of modernity—from readers who self-identified as masochists, to conmen and female criminals.

Abstract

The book brings together seven essays on Cicero written by specialists in the Author. The essays are grouped into two sections: in the first one, papers on Cicero’s works (the dialogues: Lucullus, De finibus, De oratore, De officiis); in the second one, papers on both the early and late reception of Cicero (in Seneca, Petrarch and Erasmus). The essays belong to professors from Brazilian (Adriano Scatolin, Bianca Fanelli Morganti, Elaine Cristine Sartorelli, Sidney Calheiros de Lima), French (Carlos Lévy) and Italian universities (Aldo Setaioli, Ermanno Malaspina). The book avoids biographical approach, which sometimes takes the works of Cicero as a reliable witness of political and family events, sometimes distrusts them as a distorted picture of public and private actors; or yet, conceives of them as either the Author’s profession of faith in a philosophical doctrine, or a tendentious presentation of the theses of philosophical schools. Instead, the essays adopt another interpretative key, so that, when analyzing a philosophical dialogue of Cicero, instead of seeking references to its historical moment, focus on its controversial aspects (due to the dispute between the schools of philosophy), rhetorical aspects (the amplifying devices through which the Author compares the strength of one thesis with the weakness of another), fictional aspects (including the description of the scene and the picture of the characters). Thus, it can be said that the book seeks a more appropriate approach to Cicero’s works, not taking them as mere source of historical knowledge, but considering their historicity, that is, the devices for discursive production of their own time.

Abstract

Stage women, 1900–50 explores the many ways in which women conceptualised, constructed and participated in networks of professional practice in the theatre and performance industries between 1900 and 1950. A timely volume full of original research, the book explores women’s complex negotiations of their agency over both their labour and public representation, and their use of personal and professional networks to sustain their careers. Including a series of case studies that explore a range of well-known and lesser-known women working in theatre, film and popular performance of the period. The volume is divided into two connected parts. ‘Female theatre workers in the social and theatrical realm’ looks at the relationship between women’s work – on- and offstage – and autobiography, activism, technique, touring, education and the law. Part II, ‘Women and popular performance’, focuses on the careers of individual artists, once household names, including Lily Brayton, Ellen Terry, radio star Mabel Constanduros, and Oscar-winning film star Margaret Rutherford. Overall, the book provides new and vibrant cultural histories of women’s work in the theatre and performance industries of the period.&#xD;

Abstract

El libro ofrece una revisión de la rica historiografía jurídica mexicana sobre el siglo XIX (1808-1910) publicada en los últimos veinte años. Dos décadas en las que derecho ha dejado de ser materia exclusiva de abogados, y se ha convertido en preocupación fundamental de sociólogos, economistas, filósofos, politólogos e historiadores. Manifestándose así la permeabilidad de la investigación jurídica frente a los cambios desatados por la transición democrática. Dos décadas en las que factores institucionales que han contribuido a la renovación de la historiografía jurídica mexicana: revistas especializadas, congresos internacionales, seminarios y asociaciones profesionales, cursos de licenciatura y posgrado, y nuevos cuadros de investigadores formados en ambas disciplinas. Este ensayo busca evaluar lo que hemos aprendido e indicar algo de lo mucho que aún nos falta por hacer, reflexiona sobre las orientaciones historiográficas e invita a sumergirse en la investigación especializada, cuyas valiosas aportaciones son prácticamente desconocidas por los historiadores ajenos al derecho y los juristas desvinculados de la historia. El autor espera que El nuevo pasado jurídico mexicano pueda servir de guía para una nueva historia general del derecho mexicano, que tanta falta hace en nuestras universidades.

Abstract

El presente intenta mostrar la amplitud de perspectivas teórico- metodológicas desde el análisis del discurso. Luego, el libro se propone exponer un abanico diverso sobre los tópicos, períodos y problemáticas de abordaje y, con ello, las distintas posibilidades de construcción de datos y de análisis de fuentes. Así, retoma una línea que intenta que el campo historiográfico se nutra de perspectivas teórico-metodológicas provenientes de disciplinas como la Sociología, la Antropología y la Lingüística, entre otras. En conjunto, todo ello conduce a una reflexión sobre la dinámica de la investigación a través de la puesta en práctica de los distintos procesos metodológicos y a una lectura reflexiva sobre el propio campo disciplinar.
