«Dall’ombre al chiaro lume» - The Enigma and its declensions in Literature

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.

2020 PEAKS Interdisciplinary Conference 

Thresholds and Threshold Concepts 

Saturday, February 29, 2019

 

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.
