Sound has always been there. However, its ephemeral condition has prevented us from critically listening to the past and even from thinking about our everyday sonic experiences. Moreover, the sonic materialization of the Logos —voice—  has been systematically relegated to a second level, even when orality was present in the production of any kind of text.

The last few decades have witnessed a growing interest in the benefits of linking the learning of a foreign language to the study of its literature. In fact, the emphasis on working with culturally authentic texts is one of the central claims for curriculum reform in EFL/ESL teaching nowadays. Moreover, the latest developments in text-based teaching point to a curriculum in which language, culture, and literature are taught as a continuum. 

Nevertheless, the incorporation of literary texts into the language curriculum is not easy to tackle. Many linguists refer to literary content as extremely demanding for both teachers and students. Not surprisingly, many teachers tend to avoid using literary texts for this reason.

This panel takes W.S.

there is no singular ‘nature’ as such, only a diversity of contested natures; and that eachsuch nature is constituted through a variety of socio-cultural processes from which such natures cannot be plausibly separated.

Surface and ornament are periodically reviewed, discarded and pursued. More recently, there has been an interest in the writing of Aby Warburg, Alois Riegl, Gottfried Semper, Adolf Loos, Hermann Muthesius, and Le Corbusier. They have been made prominent by issues of animation (see, for example, Papapetros 2012, Payne 2013, van Eck 2014) and digitation (see for example Spuybroek 2008 and Schumacher 2009).

Works of literature can be viewed from many angles or schools of critical thought and yield "meaning" dependent on through what school you choose to critique a text. Marjorie Garber closes her book The Use and Abuse of Literature stating

Literary interpretation, like literature, does not seek answers or closure. A multiplicity of persuasive and well-argued "meanings" does not mean the death or loss of meaning, but rather the living presence of the literary work in culture, society, and the individual creative imagination. To say that closure is impossible is to acknowledge the richness and fecundity of both the reading and the writing process.
