Monographic section: Primo levi as a writer
edited by Matteo Fadini, Carlo Tirinanzi De Medici, Paolo Zublena
Over the last thirty years, British critics with an interest in cultural studies have substantially
contributed to the analysis of Primo Levi's oeuvre primarily addressed in its factual,
memoir-like facets and for its social and ethical significance in relation to the Nazi-fascist barbarism.
Hence, Levi the guardian of the Holocaust's memory, Levi the chronicler: such reception
has emphasised a recursive element in Levi's works, i.e. remembrance, thus overlooking
their merely literary aspect.
The aim of this monographic issue of «Ticontre» is to focus on the literary scope of

This year's MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of "human" and "animal" found within a variety of cultural textualities in the broad field of animal studies. Since "animality" has often historically been equated with "primitive," in a derogatory sense, and "human" with the rise of civilization and modernity, or the westernization of the world and globalization, this panel seeks papers that disrupt these categorizations through the examination of a wide range of perspectives on animals in diverse texts. To that end, we seek papers analyzing all types of "texts," broadly understood, from mythological sources and artistic representations to music, film, and literature.

Forging Ogun's Presence in a plastic society: A look at Wole Soyinka's The Interpreters

The aim of this article is two-fold. It will analyse how Ogun principles in The Interpreters have been compromised and discarded by individuals transformed by an alien culture. The article will also describe and evaluate the ways in which the Ogun presence manifests itself in a society that is reluctant to look at the past in order to forge a path of self-discovery. In the postmodern age the concept of identity and purpose calls for a psychological weaning from imported cultures with their hegemonic footprints. The absorption of an alien culture is at times not selectively done by members of these African societies.
