    Literatura, locura y malestar

    Revista Internacional de Estudios Literarios "Impossibilia"

    El propósito del monográfico consiste en el estudio de las relaciones entre literatura, locura y malestar en las producciones literarias contemporáneas y su recepción en los discursos teóricos y críticos recientes. El nexo entre locura y literatura es uno de los ejes presentes en la cultura: escritoras/es diversas/os han configurado su vínculo con el lenguaje desde el límite que les sitúa más allá de cierta normalización. En los últimos años, sin embargo, pareciera que el imaginario de la locura se hubiera desplazado de manera progresiva hacia una suerte de literatura o poética del malestar donde, de modo transversal, se convoca la medicamentalización generalizada de la población, la expansión de diagnósticos de trastornos afectivos o ansiosos, y, en suma, se hiciera oír la voz de una subjetividad doliente a la que tradicionalmente le estaba vedada la palabra.

    Undergound Atmospheres. Renewing the debate

    This special issue of Ambiances aims to highlight shared topics and possible bridges between actors who usually operate on different scales. We encourage reflections questioning the stakes and methods of the construction of inhabited space in its verticality by reintroducing the question of the underground, not as a soffit but as a living and evolving interface. The issue invites researchers, practitioners of the operational world and designers from different fields, who will share their work on the questions of undergrounds and ambiances – built, experienced and lived by humans – by highlighting case studies, in-situexperiences and new methodological tools. This call is organised around three, non-exclusive thematic lines open for articles from urban studies, architecture, engineering, humanities and social sciences.

    Delinquency, crimes and repression in History

    The question of delinquency, in the most general sense of the term, is particularly complex because criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, doctors, lawyers, and historians who have studied this subject extensively have often expressed very different and even contradictory opinions. Difficulties arise as soon as the phenomenon is to be defined. In French law, the word “delinquency” designates all types of offenses. These fall into three categories: transgressions; which constitute very light offenses, crimes which are at an intermediate level, and crimes among including murders, non-premeditated voluntary homicides, and the assassinations, premeditated voluntary homicides. In recent years, in many countries, rape has entered this category of crimes. The Arabic language differentiates between delinquency (“inhiraf”) which designates minor crimes and the crime (“jarima”) which applies to the most serious crimes and offenses.

    In praise of women in poetry: thinking rhetorical exaltation

    L’éloge se définit comme un discours épidictique né d’une vigoureuse admiration, impliquant une instance énonciative, productrice d’un discours évaluatif saturé d’amplification et de valorisation. L’éloquence de l’acte célébratif, éminemment rhétorique, établit ainsi la singularisation et l’élévation d’un objet, produisant un jugement mélioratif de l’objet visé. Omniprésent dans la poésie amoureuse et érotique (les odes et fragments saphiques, le cantique des cantiques biblique, la tradition du ghazal dans la poésie courtoise arabe et perse, les Amours et Odes ronsardiennes, L’union libre d’André Breton, l’hommage à la Femme noire de Léopold Sédar Senghor, The lesbian body de Monique Wittig se lisent comme autant de variantes encomiastiques), l’éloge a traditionnellement servi à chanter le féminin—geste qu’il s’agira d’interroger, tant sur le plan philosophique, énonciatif, rhétorique, genré qu'épistemologique.

    Work and cooperation

    Laboreal Dossier

    If human beings are the result of a historical process and not the product of a pre-established plan, it is important to emphasize the significance of cooperative actions for their preservation throughout this process. A path in which work – as a constitutive element of our species – plays a decisive role in these actions. How has cooperation been taking place in formal and informal work activities? How have the current modes of management and their evaluation and training systems contributed to the construction or weakening of cooperative acts at work? What are the requirements to build cooperation?
