ISSN 2280-6849

 

This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

« Il y a longtemps, fort longtemps, le monde tel que nous le connaissons aujourd’hui n’était qu’un vaste océan. Il était peu habité, sauf par quelques animaux aquatiques. À cette époque, les ancêtres des Wendat vivaient plutôt au-dessus, dans un autre monde : le Monde-Ciel. »

In the past decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added elements of intercultural and global awareness to their discipline, degree, and course outcomes. Whether titled “intercultural awareness” or “global citizenship,” “intercultural competence” or “global awareness,” these new focal points center on a more international, cross-cultural understanding of the world and its interactions. The American Association of Colleges and Universities, for example, has generated a “Global and Social Responsibility Initiative” that articulates three main outcomes for students in the 21st century:

1.) Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.

The Milton Society of America seeks to assemble a roundtable at the RSA 2024 on the shifting role of teaching and writing about the work of John Milton in the academic profession today, in different places across the world. Although some of our conversations will revolve around the serious institutional and vocational challenges that many Miltonists confront, we also hope to hear about creative responses to those challenges as well as contexts in which Milton scholarship is beginning to take hold or developing in new ways. Participants will be asked to open with brief (approximately seven-minute) prepared remarks in order to allow ample time for conversation and discussion.

deadline for submissions:

The Milton Society of America will propose a panel at the RSA 2024 that commemorates the 350th anniversary of the second edition of Paradise Lost—the twelve-book version that would become familiar to us and regarded as the great epic poem in the English language. We invite papers on any aspect of the twelve-book Paradise Lost or on the ways its significance has been reshaped between 1674 and now. Topics may include (but are not limited to) the revision of the original ten-book poem, book history, reception history, and adaptation. For consideration, please submit an abbreviated CV and a 200-word abstract to Eric Song at MiltonSocietySec@gmail.com, no later than June 30, 2023.

English as a foreign language (EFL) education provides valuable opportunities to introduce global and intercultural perspectives on the challenges of the Anthropocene. One way to engage EFL learners critically with the Anthropocene and make its complexity more accessible, immediate, and meaningful to them is through literary studies. Literature has the power to challenge established ideas, inspire change, and offer fresh perspectives on real-world problems associated with the Anthropocene.

Pratiques de l’hésitation : pour une observation des tremblements 

 

Si, p. ex., quelqu’un disait « je ne sais pas s’il y a là une main », on pourrait dire : « Regarde de plus près ». – Cette possibilité de se convaincre de quelque chose fait partie du jeu de langage. (Wittgenstein 1969, 16) 

 

Depuis, j’ai tout oublié de l’inconnu, mais le timbre de sa voix, au creux de cette houle, résonne encore en moi. Émoi définitivement présent :

 – Ma main en tremble encore, disait-il, regardez!  (Djebar 1985, 162)

Aestheticizing Politics/Politicizing Aesthetics: St. Louis Symposium on Radicalism in U.S. Arts

The past six years have seen a resurgence of the radical right. In this resurgence, art and literature have played a prominent role. Senior advisors to the Trump administration cited novels as specific influences on federal policy; Jordan Peterson has disguised right-wing manifestos as self-help volumes, hoodwinking young men to the tune of millions; the internet has seen an overwhelming explosion of white supremacist digital art. Walter Benjamin’s dictum that fascism seeks to “aestheticize politics” endures.

CFP: “Intelligence,” Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association (JMMLA), Spring 2024

The Journal of the Midwestern Modern Language Association invites submissions for a Spring 2024 special issue on the theme of “Intelligence.”

In 2021, as a consequence of the pandemic, schools and colleges across the country placed a temporary freeze on standardized testing, reinforcing doubts regarding the necessity and efficacy of such tests to assess intellectual potential. Soon thereafter, the November 30th 2022 launch of ChatGPT-3 elicited responses ranging from the apocalyptic (the software is a huge step toward artificial general intelligence) to the skeptical (the software is not and cannot be intelligent).
