Há vários estudos sobre as relações entre Literatura e Imprensa, livros e periódicos, suas confluências e divergências, seus produtores e seus leitores. Quando o assunto é a literatura destinada ao público infantil, esses estudos tornam-se bastante reduzidos. Este trabalho tem como seu principal objetivo preencher essa lacuna, demonstrando a importante contribuição do jornal português O senhor doutor e da revista brasileira O Tico-Tico para a formação de leitores, assim como para a educação informal e a história da Literatura Infantil. . Verificamos, em uma perspectiva histórica e comparatista, como a literatura infantil foi construída além do suporte livro, levando em conta diferentes concepções de infância, tendências pedagógicas e a própria materialidade dos textos, além das diferentes práticas de leitura suscitadas. A partir desse pressuposto, levamos em conta a estrutura dos periódicos, a periodicidade dos gêneros, o contexto de produção e como a literatura infantil e seus leitores formaram-se além dos livros. É importante ressaltar que a forma como os textos literários para as crianças eram apresentados nos jornais, revistas e almanaques, no início do século XX, imprime-lhes uma legibilidade específica...

Primo Levi (1919-1987), de origem judaica, antifascista e químico de formação, passa quase um ano de sua vida como prisioneiro em um dos campos de concentração de Auschwitz. Preso como partigiano, deportado como judeu, e sobrevivente por acaso, Levi faz daquela experiência, através da necessidade de narrar, o ponto de partida de sua literatura. Seu percurso parte da literatura de testemunho, matéria de suas duas primeiras obras, Se questo è un uomo e La tregua. Porém, sua grande vocação narrativa faz com que cultive os mais diversos gêneros ao longo de sua carreira, indo desde a autobiografia, até a poesia, o romance e os contos fantásticos e de ficção científica. A análise da obra literária de Levi, obrigatoriamente, deve considerar dois aspectos, que estão na gênese e na construção de seus escritos: o primeiro é a origem de sua literatura, nascida da experiência como prisioneiro e da observação daquele universo e que dele nunca se desprendeu; o segundo é a sua formação, pois, como químico, o olhar que dirigia ao mundo era determinado pelos preceitos da ciência que escolheu, e pela qual era apaixonado. Assim sendo, pretendemos analisar a literatura de Levi a partir da relação que ela estabelece com a ciência...

Esta tese defende a relação complementar entre as práticas da literatura de viagem e da tradução, vistas como importantes divulgadores da imagem de uma literatura e de uma cultura além de suas fronteiras linguísticas e nacionais. Defendemos ainda a importância de ambas as atividades na formação da literatura nacional brasileira, por meio da atuação de importantes mediadores entre nossa nação e os centros culturais com os quais o Brasil dialogou ao longo de sua história. Para tal, abordamos a trajetória de quatro viajantes tradutores de diferentes origens nacionais e momentos históricos, proporcionando um breve panorama de nossas relações culturais com o estrangeiro. Foram selecionados para objeto de nosso estudo: o francês Ferdinand Denis, que esteve no Brasil em 1816; o inglês Sir Richard Burton, que viveu no país entre 1865-69 como cônsul britânico; o franco-suíço Blaise Cendrars, que visitou o país por três vezes, na década de 1920; e a norte-americana Elizabeth Bishop, poeta que viveu no Brasil entre 1951 e 1971. Cada um deles desenvolveu sua trajetória própria, divulgando suas imagens do Brasil no exterior, e atuando em diferentes níveis como influência junto a nossos escritores. Denis foi figura chave na origem do movimento romântico no Brasil...

The purpose of this study was to understand the experiences and perceptions of 12th-grade literature teachers about curriculum, Post-Colonial literature, and students. Theories posed by Piaget (1995), Vygotsky (1995), and Rosenblatt (1995) formed the framework for this micro-ethnographic study. Seven teachers from public and private schools in South Florida participated in this two-phase study; three teachers in Phase I and four in Phase II. All participants completed individual semi-structured interviews and demographic surveys. In addition, four of the teachers were observed teaching. The analysis yielded three themes and two sub-themes: (a) knowledge concerned teachers’ knowledge of British literature content and Post-Colonial authors and their literature; (b) freedom described teachers’ freedom to choose how to teach their content. Included in this theme was dilemmas associated with 12th-grade classrooms which described issues that were pertinent to the 12th-grade teacher and classroom that were revealed by the study; and (c) thoughts about students described teachers’ perceptions about students and how literature might affect the students. Two subthemes of knowledge were as follows:(1) text complexity described teacher responses to a Post-Colonial text’s complexity and (2) student desirability/teachability described teachers’ perception about how desirable Post-Colonial texts would be to students and whether teachers would be willing to teach these texts. The researcher offers recommendations for understanding factors associated with 12th-grade teachers perceptions and implications for enhancing the 12th-grade experience for teachers and curriculum...

This is a narrative paper that tracks a story of Aboriginal representation and the concept of nation across the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries through some important Australian texts. I read this assemblage of settler literature through the cultural metaphor of tracking, because tracking is as much about anticipation as it is following. Tracking is about reading: reading land and people before and after whitefellas. It is about entering into the consciousness of the person or people of interest. Tracking is not just about reading the physical signs; it is about reading the mind. It is not just about seeing and hearing what is there; it is as much about what is not there. Tony Morrisson wrote of mapping ‘the critical geography’ (3) of the white literary imagination in her work on Africanist presence in American Literature, Playing in the Dark. This paper tracks the settler imagination on Aboriginal presence in Australian literature in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Seit es menschliche Kulturgeschichte gibt, gibt es Versuche, den Tyrannen Zeit zu begreifen, ihn zu bekämpfen. Der Tempuswechsel des Jahres 2000 war erneut Anlaß eines intensiven Nachdenkens über die Zeit. Die Moderne ist auf die Zeit und Bemühungen um ihr Verständnis, ihre Gestaltung, ihre Überwindung fixiert. Betrachtet man all die Diskurse über die Zeit, so wird deutlich, daß seit der Aufklärung das Leiden am Tyrannen 'Zeit' eine neue Qualität und Quantität angenommen hat, die in der Gegenwart kulminiert und spezifische Merkmale der Zeitdiskurse konstituiert - wobei rasch deutlich wird, dass allem Reden über die Zeit zum Trotz die Zeit weiter als 'große Unbekannte' betrachtet werden muß, die noch von keiner Disziplin, insbesondere aber auch nicht von der Germanistik ausreichend aufgearbeitet wurde. So betritt diese Arbeit somit weitgehend unsondiertes Terrain: Was ist der 'state of the art' der Zeitdiskussion zum Tempuswechsel? Welchen Anteil an dieser Diskussion hat die deutschsprachige Gegenwartsliteratur? In diesem Zusammenhang werden drei Leitfragen an die Literatur formuliert, Diese richten sich auf das Zeitempfinden des modernen Menschen, v.a. auf die Frage, wie sich sein Leiden an der Zeit äußert und was er diesem Leiden entgegensetzt...

Facing the Limits of Fiction: Self-Consciousness in Jewish American Literature

This thesis explores the limits of fictional language by studying the work of Jewish American writer-critics, novelists who significantly engaged with literary criticism, and critics who experimented with the novel or short fiction. These writer-critics all believed in Literature: they believed that literature could effect social change and educate the masses; or they believed in literature as an art-form, one that exposed the myths underlying American society, or that revealed something fundamental about the human condition. Yet it is because they believed so stridently in the concept of Literature that they turned to non-fiction. Writing fiction exposed problems that Literature could not resolve. They describe being haunted by “preoccupations” that they could not exhaust in fiction alone. They apologetically refer to their critical texts as “by-products” of their creative writing. Writer-critics were forced to decide what the limits of fiction were, and they adopted other types of writing to supplement these unexpected gaps in fiction's power. This dissertation contains four chapters and an introduction. The introduction establishes the methodological difficulties in writing about author-critics, and introduces a set of principles to guide the study. Chapter 1 approaches Abraham Cahan's The Rise of David Levinsky (1917). I argue that many of the novel's difficulties result from Cahan's desire to present the way that ideology shades our understanding of reality while minimizing direct narratorial intrusions. Chapter 2 studies how politics affected the work of Mike Gold...

Children’s literature flourished in Edo-period Japan, as this dissertation shows through a survey of eighteenth-century woodblock-printed picturebooks for children that feature children in prominent roles. Addressing a persisting neglect of non-Western texts in the study of children’s literature and childhood per se, the dissertation challenges prevailing historical understandings of the origins of children’s literature and conceptions of childhood as a distinct phase of life. The explosive growth of print culture in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Japan not only raised expectations for adult literacy but also encouraged the spread of basic education for children and the publication of books for the young. The limited prior scholarship on Edo-period Japanese children’s books tends to dismiss them as a few isolated exceptions or as limited to moralistic primers and records of oral tradition. This dissertation reveals a long-lasting, influential, and varied body of children’s literature that combines didactic value with entertainment. Eighteenth-century picturebooks drew on literary and religious traditions as well as popular culture, while tailoring their messages to the interests and limitations of child readers. Organized in two parts...

Children's Literature Grows Up

Children’s Literature Grows Up proposes that there is a revolution occurring in contemporary children’s fiction that challenges the divide that has long existed between literature for children and literature for adults. Children’s literature, though it has long been considered worthy of critical inquiry, has never enjoyed the same kind of extensive intellectual attention as adult literature because children’s literature has not been considered to be serious literature or “high art.” Children’s Literature Grows Up draws upon recent scholarship about the thematic transformations occurring in the category, but demonstrates that there is also an emerging aesthetic and stylistic sophistication in recent works for children that confirms the existence of children’s narratives that are equally complex, multifaceted, and worthy of the same kind of academic inquiry that is afforded to adult literature. This project investigates the history of children’s literature in order to demonstrate the way that children’s literature and adult literature have, at different points in history, grown closer or farther apart, explores the reasons for this ebb and flow, and explains why contemporary children’s literature marks a reunification of the two categories. Employing J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels as a its primary example...

PDF poster and MPEG4 video file; In 1996, a small group of Bushmen, known as the ?Khomani San, launched a claim to South Africa's second most important National Park. This was one of the first such land claims in Africa, and led to research, negotiation and, in 1999, a settlement. A set of research projects - recording oral histories, mapping relationships to land and resources, filming with the community - put together the land claim, and then monitored its consequences. In this lecture, Hugh Brody, who co-ordinated the research projects with the ?Khomani San from 1997-2008, will describe the process and invite discussion of how the results of such work can have maximum value, both for the people who told the stories and made the claim, and for those who wish to draw on and analyse the materials. Professor Brody is the Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley and an Associate of the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge. He has worked with governments and indigenous communities on land claims issues in Canada and South Africa since the 1970s. He was an adviser to the Mackenzie Pipeline Inquiry, a member of the World Bank's Morse Commission and chairman of the Snake River Independent Review...

.wav and .mp3 versions of audio recording of part of the lecture; The Encyclopaedia of Literature in African Languages (ELLAF) project focuses on oral and written literature in African languages. The ELLAF project proposes the creation of a website presenting and analysing literary texts in African languages, in order to make a wide range of these written or oral texts, in Sub-Saharan African and Malagasy languages, available to enthusiasts, students and specialists from around the world. The project aims to build up a research database based on literary works produced in their original languages, translated into French and/or English and presented in their linguistic, social and cultural contexts.The website signifies the creation of new tools for presenting and analysing textual data, centred on written/oral African literature in African languages regardless of their sociolinguistic status. This presentation favoured research through various fields (language, author, literary genre, predefined keyword and/or full text keyword) using a cross-disciplinary and comparative method. The method provides access to, for example: every text from a particular literature, the same genre found in several literatures, one theme in several literatures...

PDF poster, PDF of presentation, MP3 and WAV of audio; Digital tools are providing exciting new possibilities for linguists and ethnographers to collate and compile fieldwork data, and to share the results with communities of origin. In this lecture, Dr Thieberger will outline the methods he used in his work on South Efate (Vanuatu) which involved building a corpus at the same time as developing his linguistic analysis. He will then profile a more recent initiative to design an open-source method for hosting texts linked to streaming media online (EOPAS). Thieberger suggests that integrating such processes into fieldwork naturally results in better outcomes, both for speakers and for the research community, and reflects on the associated challenges and opportunities provided by these technologies. Nicholas Thieberger is an Australian Research Council QEII Fellow at the University of Melbourne and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai'i at M?noa.

What Can Philosophical Literature Do? The Contribution of Simone de Beauvoir

"What Can Philosophical Literature Do? The Contribution of Simone de Beauvoir" examines Simone de Beauvoir's existentialist aesthetic theory of the philosophical novel alongside two fictional works, L'invitée (1943) and Le sang des autres (1945), which constitute Beauvoir's first experiments in writing works of this hybrid genre. Throughout this dissertation, I mobilize Beauvoir's theoretical and literary writing to challenge implied notions that literature somehow acts as a supplement to philosophy and that philosophical literature does not offer distinct advantages to the philosophical system.

In her theoretical writings on philosophical literature - including "Littérature et métaphysique" (1945), her auto-analysis of her novels in La Force de l'âge (1960), her contribution to the forum, Que peut la littérature? (1965), and her lecture, "Mon expérience d'écrivain" (1966) - Beauvoir confronts a potential impasse in the conception of the philosophical novel, which risks devolving into being either a roman à thèse or a concrete example of a pre-existing philosophical system. This aesthetic impasse becomes particularly acute when Beauvoir begins to write ethical fiction after WWII. This dissertation catalogs Beauvoir's unique philosophical solutions to this aesthetic problem...

Goodman, Susan; The first urban capitals that emerged in the United States remain among the ranks today: Philadelphia, Boston, and New York. Novels that portray the development of neighborhoods within these cities comprise the focus of my dissertation during a crucial period of American literature that saw a push toward internationalism and a consequent re-imagining of what constitutes the American identity. As seats of the nation's economic and cultural production, nineteenth-century American cities became exponents of modernity and ubiquitous subjects of literary endeavor. An analysis of narrative methods and genre, Neighborhood Novels in American Literature traces numerous forms of writing the city, including travel accounts, journalism, and sociological studies, that authors incorporated into quintessential, and lesser known, city novels. Walking narratives set in distinctive neighborhoods prove crucial to showing the adjustment to life in the big city. The Philadelphia novels of George Lippard and Frank Webb reveal how remarkably integrated the city is through an awareness of its social geography; the neighborhood alternately festers with greed, corruption, and scandal among its loftiest ranks and stands as a bastion of civility for an insurgent middle class during a period of social conflict that distinguishes this period of Philadelphia history. As antecedents to the social reform impulse evident in novels of realism at the end of the century...

http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1807-9288.2012v8n1p138In this article we would like to talk about our experience in translating digital poetry. In a text there are always elements that seem to be/are untranslatable. There will always be a certain degree of loss in meaning when a text is translated, but what does it mean to translate Electronic Literature? Electronic Literature is a transnational (thus translingual), interdisciplinary, and multimodal practice.  Electronic literature creates a text which is unstable; a text that can change its form and its content. The electronic text is causing a true reconfiguration of the literary creation, how can/should we translate a text that is unstable by its nature, that moves, changes and interacts with other semiotic systems? Though we are still at the beginning of this new discipline, nowadays, there are some examples of translation of e-literature: for instance the Finnish website nokturno.org provides translations into several languages of electronic literature. But what do we need to translate, to transfer into another language and into another culture, when we are translating electronic literature? What happens, for instance, to the aesthetic effects created by moving letters and their meaning when these words are translated to another languages whose structure could be very different from the departing language. How does one describe the intralingual and the intersemiotic translation process in e-literature? And how are different semiotic systems related to each other in an intersemiotic translation?
