Mash-Up. Forms and Meanings of Hybridization in Literary Writing

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 8:43am
«Ticontre. Teoria Testo Traduzione»

This «Ticontre» monographic issue aims at investigating the artistic practices grounding on the concepts of blending, transgression, fusion, and which seem to re-enact the romantic attempt to conceive a total and absolute work, merging all the different arts.

At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

Reminder: Edited Collection / Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale [Abstracts May 29th]
