Abstract

From its earliest manifestations on the street corners of nineteenth-century Buenos Aires to its ascendancy as a global cultural form, tango has continually exceeded the confines of the dance floor or the music hall. In Tango Lessons, scholars from Latin America and the United States explore tango's enduring vitality. The interdisciplinary group of contributors—including specialists in dance, music, anthropology, linguistics, literature, film, and fine art—take up a broad range of topics. Among these are the productive tensions between tradition and experimentation in tango nuevo, representations of tango in film and contemporary art, and the role of tango in the imagination of Jorge Luis Borges. Taken together, the essays show that tango provides a kaleidoscopic perspective on Argentina's social, cultural, and intellectual history from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first centuries.

Abstract

The ROTOЯ partnership between Huddersfield Art Gallery and the University of Huddersfield was established in 2011. ROTOЯ I and II was a programme of eight exhibitions and accompanying events that commenced in 2012 and was completed in 2013. ROTOЯ continues into 2014 and the programme for 2015 and 2016 is already firmly underway. In brief, the aim of ROTOЯ is to improve the cultural vitality of Kirklees, expand audiences, and provide new ways for people to engage with and understand academic research in contemporary art and design. Why ROTOЯ , Why Now? As Vice Chancellors position their institutions’ identities and future trajectories in context to national and international league tables, Professor John Goddard1 proposes the notion of the ‘civic’ university as a ‘place embedded’ institution; one that is committed to ‘place making’ and which recognises its responsibility to engaging with the public. The civic university has deep institutional connections to different social, cultural and economic spheres within its locality and beyond. A fundamental question for both the university sector and cultural organisations alike, including local authority, is how the many different articulations of public engagement and cultural leadership which exist can be brought together to form one coherent, common language. It is critical that we reach out and engage the community so we can participate in local issues, impact upon society, help to forge well-being and maintain a robust cultural economy. Within the lexicon of public centered objectives sits the Arts Council England’s strategic goals, and those of the Arts and Humanities Research Council – in particular its current Cultural Value initiative. What these developments reveal is that art and design education and professional practice, its projected oeuvre as well as its relationship to cultural life and public funding, is now challenged with having to comprehensively audit its usefulness in financially austere times. It was in the wake of these concerns coming to light, and of the 2010 Government Spending Review that ROTOЯ was conceived. These issues and the discussions surrounding them are not completely new. Research into the social benefits of the arts, for both the individual and the community, was championed by the Community Arts Movement in the 1960s. During the 1980s and ‘90s, John Myerscough and Janet Wolff, amongst others, provided significant debate on the role and value of the arts in the public domain. What these discussions demonstrated was a growing concern that the cultural sector could not, and should not, be understood in terms of economic benefit alone. Thankfully, the value of the relationships between art, education, culture and society is now recognised as being far more complex than the reductive quantification of their market and GDP benefits. Writing in ‘Art School (Propositions for the 21st Century)’, Ernesto Pujol proposes:‘…it is absolutely crucial that art schools consider their institutional role in support of democracy. The history of creative expression is linked to the history of freedom. There is a link between the state of artistic expression and the state of democracy.’ When we were approached by Huddersfield Art Gallery to work collaboratively on an exhibition programme that could showcase academic staff research, one of our first concerns was to ask the question, how can we really contribute to cultural leadership within the town?’ The many soundbite examples of public engagement that we might underline within our annual reports or website news are one thing, but what really makes a difference to a town’s cultural identity, and what affects people in their daily lives? With these questions in mind we sought a distinctive programme within the muncipal gallery space, that would introduce academic research in art, design and architecture beyond the university in innovative ways.

Abstract

Escritos em diferentes momentos e circunstâncias da carreira do pesquisador Alvaro Santos Simões Junior, este conjunto de dez ensaiostrata da produção, circulação e recepção de obras literárias no Brasil a partir do fim dos anos 1800.O primeiro texto reconstrói o ambiente em que, na virada século 19 para o século 20, da Monarquia para a República, do trabalho escravo para o livre, surgiram novas condições para o trabalho intelectual. O texto seguinte fala de uma modalidade bem-sucedida de atuação profissional dos escritores daquele período - as revistas de ano. Enquanto os romancistas seguiam os passos de Émile Zola e Eça de Queiroz, utilizando linguagem depurada, os “revisteiros” aderiam à metalinguagem e à paródia, e abusavam da fantasia, incorporando os variantes regionais e sociais.O terceiro e o quarto ensaios ainda olham para aquele momento histórico. Analisam, respectivamente, romances naturalistas brasileiros e notícias a respeito da morte de Zola, oferecendo, ambos, uma ideia de como era complexa relação dos intelectuais brasileiros com os amados e, eventualmente, odiados mestres europeus. O texto seguinte trata da literatura paradidática da Primeira República, à qual se dedicaram sistematicamente vários escritores daquele período.Os três ensaios subsequentes resultaram de investigação do autor sobre a repercussão do Simbolismo nos periódicos brasileiros e revelam a importância da imprensa periódica para a divulgação e circulação das obras literárias: o primeiro analisa um hebdomadário dirigido de 1893 a 1895 por Artur Azevedo; o segundo examina a atuação de Medeiros e Albuquerque como crítico literário do vespertino A Notícia de 1897 a 1905; o último aborda as intervenções do jovem Paulo Barreto, redator da Cidade do Rio, jornal de José do Patrocínio, contra o Simbolismo brasileiro na virada do século.O penúltimo estudo da coletânea reflete sobre a obra de Ana Cristina Cesar, autora mais representativa da “geração mimeógrafo”, que criou em pleno regime militar um circuito independente de produção e circulação de obras literárias. Encerra o volume um ensaio sobre a obra de Menalton Braff direcionada ao público jovem.

Abstract

O objetivo desta coletânea é demonstrar como a organização de corpora linguísticos diferentes atende aos diversos tipos de pesquisa linguística, sejam eles centrados numa mesma língua – abordando diferentes fenômenos dessalíngua – ou focados em outras línguas naturais.A obraagrega sete pesquisas linguísticas de diferentes estudiosos – que se amparam em aportes teóricos também diversos –,as quais têm como base para coleta de dados a organização de algum tipo de corpus linguístico. De enfoque tanto sincrônico quanto diacrônico, de cunho variacionista e também formalista, os trabalhos englobam os quatro níveis básicos de análise linguística: o fonológico, omorfológico, o semântico e o sintático.Talita de Cássia Marine apresenta, no primeiro capítulo, uma análise descritivo-comparativa do sistema de pronomes demonstrativos do Português do Brasil e do Português de Portugal. Ela analisa cartas de leitoras da revista brasileira Capricho, e da portuguesa Ragazza, para caracterizar a configuração, se ternária ou binária, em que se encontram tais pronomes nas referenciações anafóricas no uso contemporâneo da língua.No capítulo 2, Caroline Carnielli Biazolli avalia o uso de textos jornalísticos como fonte de extração de dados para o estudo de processos de variação e mudança linguística. Seu foco é a posição dos clíticos pronominais, adjungidos a lexias verbais simples e a complexos verbais, e o corpus são textos do jornal A Província de São Paulo (atualmente O Estado deSão Paulo), entre 1880 e 1920.O terceiro capítulo, de Juliana Bertucci Barbosa, apresenta um estudo diacrônico de textos do Português Brasileiro do século 16 ao 20, que procura, entre outros objetivos, verificar valores semânticos do Pretérito Perfeito Simples e do Perfeito Composto do modo Indicativo da língua.Leandro Silveira de Araújo, autor do capítulo 4, baseia-se em um corpus constituído de entrevistas radiofônicas, representativas de umagrande cidade de cada região dialetal da Argentina para estudar o uso doPretérito Perfecto Compuestono espanhol falado no país.No quinto capítulo Alexandre Monte analisa a presença ou a ausência da marca formal de plural no verbo na relação sujeito/verbo, com o objetivo de compreender os fatores linguísticos e sociais que condicionam/determinam a variação linguística no âmbito da concordância verbal. O corpus da pesquisa é uma amostra da língua falada de uma comunidade periférica de São Carlos, interior de São Paulo.As Cantigas de Santa Maria, de Afonso X compostas na segunda metade do século 13 em galego-português, e OsLusíadas (1572), de Camões serviram de corpora para Juliana Simões Fonte e Gladis Massini-Cagliari no estudo apresentado no capítulo 6. As autoras analisam rimas da poesia remanescente de períodos passados da Língua Portuguesa para demonstrar a contribuição de textos poéticos no estudo das vogais do Português Antigo.O último capítulo resume os resultados da tese de doutorado de Daniel Soares da Costa, que organiza a obra. Ele apresenta uma nova proposta metodológica, baseada em uma conexão entre a música e a linguística como ferramenta para a coleta de dados relativos à prosódia de línguas mortas. O autor toma as versões transcritas por Anglés (1943) das cem primeiras Cantigas de Santa Maria de Afonso X para analisar a atribuição do acento lexical e secundário no Português Arcaico.

Abstract

"Os artigos apresentados neste volume da coleção “Desafios Contemporâneos” têm como objetivo refletir sobre os problemas atuais que marcam o diálogo com o campo acadêmico e científico da Comunicação.Os 18 artigos reunidos aqui contemplam a área de Comunicação e envolvem diferentes linhas de pesquisa. A iniciativa teve como fim expor não apenas as discussões gerais sobre o campo, mas também a experiência singular e atuante dos pesquisadores da Unesp dedicados ao estudo da Comunicação.Três eixos nortearam a organização dos artigos. O primeiro, “Múltiplas formas de linguagem e produção de sentido”, reúne textos que investigam o campo da produção, da circulação e do funcionamento e das estruturas da linguagem nas diversas mídias e nas suas tipologias textuais.“Políticas e estratégias da Comunicação” trata dos processos e fluxos de comunicação no mundo atual e sua relação com a política na sociedade. Já o terceiro eixo, “Relações socioculturais e suas manifestações na esfera da indústria cultural e das mídias digitais”, analisa as dimensões dos processos, da difusão e da recepção dos produtos midiáticos em sua relação sociocultural.Entre os temas abordados estão a comparação entre as linguagens jornalística e publicitária, a censura judicial à liberdade de imprensa, o desafio teórico-metodológico na aplicação da antropologia interpretativa ao campo da comunicação, conjunturas e desafios da educação superior em comunicação no Brasil, a focalização da vida operária no cinema de Leon Hirszman pelo filme Eles não usam black-tie, entre outros."

Abstract

Nina Sadur, the playwright, occupies a prominent place in the Soviet/Russian drama pantheon of the 1980s and 1990s, a group that has with few exceptions been generally ignored by the Western literary establishment. The plays included in this volume offer some of Sadur’s most influential works for the theater to the English-speaking audience for the first time. The collection will appeal to readers interested in Russian literature and culture, Russian theater, as well as women’s literature. Sadur’s plays are inspired by symbolist drama, the theater of the absurd and Russian folklore, yet are also infused with contemporary reality and populated by contemporary characters. Her work is overtly gynocentric: the fictional world construes women’s traditionally downplayed concerns as narratively and existentially central and crucial. Sadur’s drama has exerted a tremendous influence on contemporary Russian literature.

Abstract

Could we understand, in biological terms, the unique and fantastic capabilities of the human brain to both create and enjoy art? In the past decade neuroscience has made a huge leap in developing experimental techniques as well as theoretical frameworks for studying emergent properties following the activity of large neuronal networks. These methods, including MEG, fMRI, sophisticated data analysis approaches and behavioral methods, are increasingly being used in many labs worldwide, with the goal to explore brain mechanisms corresponding to the artistic experience. The 37 articles composing this unique Frontiers Research Topic bring together experimental and theoretical research, linking state-of-the-art knowledge about the brain with the phenomena of Art. It covers a broad scope of topics, contributed by world-renowned experts in vision, audition, somato-sensation, movement, and cinema. Importantly, as we felt that a dialog among artists and scientists is essential and fruitful, we invited a few artists to contribute their insights, as well as their art. Joan Miró said that “art is the search for the alphabet of the mind.” This volume reflects the state of the art search to understand neurobiological alphabet of the Arts. We hope that the wide range of articles in this volume will be highly attractive to brain researchers, artists and the community at large.

Abstract

In the audience, art and society overlap. It is the place where aesthetic practice becomes public in a society and where political issues in artistic staging become visible and negotiable. This volume poses the question of the aesthetics of the public and the public of the arts. He collects contributions from art history, political philosophy as well as film, theater and media studies and seeks formations of the common in historical and contemporary artistic productions, processes and modes of reception.

Abstract

Once more we are made aware of the fact that during the first half of the 19th century Bohemian musicians performed successfully outside their home country, in Europe as well as in the New World and in the Russian Empire, including careers in Vienna and we also learn that the readers of Viennese journals in the first place of the “Theaterzeitung” got firsthand information about the repertoire of the theatres in Prague and of theatres elsewhere. Reports and reviews about the life in the applied arts in the Bohemian lands being a rather lesser known chapter of art history allow us an insight in this field. The volume in question offers a reach source of information concerning the history of music, applied and performing arts in the Bohemian lands under Habsburg rule in the first half of the 19th century from the perspective of Viennese media.

Abstract

Quand Voltaire débarrassait la scène des Comédiens-Français, un équilibre nouveau s'imposait entre la scène et la salle. L’auteur devait charger la mémoire des comédiens d’un faisceau de recommandations destinées à conjurer un vide soudainement révélé. Aux premiers temps du Théâtre-Libre, André Antoine devait retrouver le problème du côté du metteur en scène. Le texte théâtral ne se réduit donc pas au texte littéraire. Alors, doit-on, peut-on conserver l’éphémère de la représentation ? D’entr...
