Abstract

Corpus linguistics has much to offer history, being as both disciplines engage so heavily in analysis of large amounts of textual material. This book demonstrates the opportunities for exploring corpus linguistics as a method in historiography and the humanities and social sciences more generally. Focusing on the topic of prostitution in 17th-century England, it shows how corpus methods can assist in social research, and can be used to deepen our understanding and comprehension. McEnery and Baker draw principally on two sources – the newsbook Mercurius Fumigosis and the Early English Books Online Corpus. This scholarship on prostitution and the sex trade offers insight into the social position of women in history.

Abstract

The major principles and systems of C. S. Peirce's ground-breaking theory of signs and signification are now generally well known. Less well known, however, is the fact that Peirce initially conceived these systems within a 'Philosophy of Representation', his latter-day version of the traditional grammar, logic and rhetoric trivium. In this book, Tony Jappy traces the evolution of Peirce's Philosophy of Representation project and examines the sign systems which came to supersede it. Exploring the potential of the later sign-systems that Peirce scholars have hitherto been reluctant to engage with and extending Peirce’s semiotic theory beyond the much canvassed systems of his Philosophy of Representation, this book will be essential reading for everyone working in the field of semiotics.

Abstract

This volume presents a series of critical essays on the accentuation, rhythm, and intonation of contemporary French which offer new insight into the formal and functional characteristics of French prosody from three different perspectives (historical, epistemological, descriptive). These properties are interpreted in the context of the latest research into the prosody of languages.

Abstract

Molière, often considered the ‘godfather of Arab theatre’, was first introduced to the Arab world in 1847 by Marun Naqqaš and his adaptation of The Miser. Since then, Molière has never ceased to influence Arab dramaturgy. Discussing a series of plays by authors from Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco, this study aims at defining Molière’s role in the development of a national Arab theatre.

Abstract

The future of area studies lies in opening out into TransArea studies, which tie together area-connected competencies with transdisciplinary research practices. It is one of the loftiest and most urgent duties of philology to lift up this treasure in the awareness of the special relevance of literature, and to make it democratically available to the broadest possible sections of the population.

Abstract

Reescribir la violencia supone un acercamiento al conflicto armado en Colombia desde la obra de escritoras que narran las experiencias de víctimas de la guerra. Diarios, autobiografías, historias de vida, entrevistas y narrativa testimonial serán los cauces de expresión más idóneos para la perpetuación de la memoria de mujeres asediadas por la violencia. El presente volumen recoge un análisis de la obra híbrida, entre el periodismo y la ficción, de Silvia Galvis, Patricia Lara, Elvira Sánchez-Blake y Laura Restrepo, basado en la manera en la que estas escritoras llevan a cabo la resemantización de eventos históricos y el rescate del olvido de experiencias individuales, desde una perspectiva diferente a la oficial.

Abstract

Archivo, memoria, cine, literatura y política. Desde una perspectiva intermedial, los ensayos reunidos en el libro analizan las relaciones entre estos campos en Argentina y Chile durante las últimas décadas. Un eje aborda las estrategias de (anti)memoria en dictadura, postdictadura y las democracias neoliberales, entre los años 80 y la actualidad; otro eje reflexiona sobre las nuevas coordenadas del cine argentino como territorio paradigmático del arte contemporáneo. Se articulan textos y films de los chilenos Gonzalo Justiniano, Pablo Larraín, Enrique Lihn, Germán Marín, Gonzalo Millán, Pablo Perelman y varias documentalistas chilenas; y films de los argentinos Lisandro Alonso, Anahí Berneri, Albertina Carri, Santiago Loza, Lucrecia Martel, Santiago Mitre y Celina Murga.

Abstract

Este volumen constituye la primera monografía que aborda el haz entero de construcciones en las que, a lo largo de la historia, ha participado el auxiliar más conocido del español, HABERE > haber. Catorce especialistas de universidades europeas y americanas trazan, desde muy diversas ópticas teóricas (lingüística de área, gramática formal, gramática de construcciones, sociolingüística, dialectología o gramaticalización), una perspectiva de conjunto, exhaustiva en los detalles y novedosa en sus hipótesis, sobre los distintos caminos que históricamente ha emprendido el verbo ‘haber’ y hoy caracterizan su comportamiento en español (y otras lenguas románicas aquí abordadas: catalán, francés, portugués...), adentrándose igualmente en aspectos generales de la variación y el cambio morfosintácticos.
