People will be able to liberate themselves only after the legal superstructure itself has begun to wither away. And when we begin to overcome and to do without these [juridical] concepts in reality, rather than merely in declarations, that will be the surest sign that the narrow horizon of bourgeois law is finally opening up before us.

Call for Papers: 

In a physical sense, a threshold is the bottom of a doorway that must be crossed to enter into a room. Kathleen Blake Yancey views threshold concepts as the “articulation of shared beliefs” that leads to the “modification, extension, and boundary marking” of spaces in social, professional, academic and other communities. Threshold concepts are entry points of knowledge that impact ideas and participants in discourse communities.

In recent years, Europe has witnessed the rise of various protest movements: Extinction Rebellion, the Yellow Vests in France, “Stop the Coup” protest in the UK, to name but a few. These protests were fuelled by the deterioration of the social, political and environmental situation in Europe and the rest of the world, as well as by citizens’ increasing demands for social, political and environmental justice.

Doctoral Conference - University of Padua
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 30, 2020

The International Doctoral Conference at the University of Padua is an interdisciplinary and bilingual forum which takes place every year. This year the conference is open to PhD students, researchers and scholars interested in the topic of literary and linguistic enigmas from a broader historical and socio-cultural perspective.

Agreeing with Fortini (1991), the difference between obscurity and complexity lies on the nature of “darkness”, which «cannot and must ever not be […] ‘won’ or ‘overcome’ since its raison d’être lies in being […] a particular kind of ‘figure of speech’». In fact, complexity implies at least one chance of effectively decoding the hidden meaning.
