    Languages in European University Alliances: challenges and issues

    Strategic partnerships across the EU between higher education institutions encouraged the emergence of European Universities, a key driver for improving the quality of Higher Education and strengthening links with the European research and innovation landscape, but also with society and the economy. Which will be the role of languages in University Alliances’ strategies for interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches, maintaining different contextual linguistic, rhetorical, and disciplinary traditions? Will multilingualism be enhanced, and with what perspectives? The CEL/ELC (European Language Council) Forum intends to bring together contributions, experiences, and reflections on the role of languages in HELP (Language Policy in Higher Education), on strategies for their valorisation, on intercomprehension practices, on methodologies and actions to promote plurilingualism.

    Digital Humanities in the Web 3.0 Era

    The publication of critical editions and their use for scientific purposes—two essential realities for research in the humanities—have transformed considerably in step with the digital revolutions of our time. With the adoption of the Open Science principles and their dissemination within the scientific community, the Web has become an indispensable place for the publication and digital exploitation of source texts. All things considered, we are still a long way from exploiting the full potential of Web 3.0 (the Web of data). This issue of Methodos aims to explore new methodologies, technologies, standards, data models, computational tools and applications that allow the integration of major aspects of Web 3.0 into digital editions, including: the Semantic Web, Artificial Intelligence, automatic natural language processing, and visualization or graphical representation of data.

    Transmediatization and transwriting

    During the last decades, new concepts revolving around mediality and intermediality entered the arena of theoretical debates concerning the links between cinema and the established arts. Our conference aims to reassess two of these terms, namely transmédiagénie (transmediatization) and transécriture (transwriting). André Gaudreault and Philippe Marion’s concept of transécriture distances itself from the old paradigm of “fidelity” toward the original text and rethinks adaptations in accordance with the specific semiotical reconfigurations of the target medium. Transmédiagénie, on the other hand, is a wider notion defined by Philippe Marion as “a narrative’s capacity for star-like expansion, circulation and transmedial propagation.”

    Emerging Terminologies and Specialised Translation

    Issue 1/2024 of the journal Studia Universitatis Babe ş-Bolyai, series Philologia will be focused on interdisciplinary approaches to emerging terminologies and the problems of specialised translation in these thematic and textual contexts. This issue aims to deepen the analysis of and expand debates in the new fields of terminological investigation of lesser-researched specialised domains of the contemporary world, as well as in already existing specialised domains which are enriched by emergent concepts, based on their corresponding neological needs.

    Hybridity: Text, Translation, Teaching

    In our globalized world, life in or with several languages has become a socially accepted fact and is continuously gaining momentum, ranging from simple code switching to such complex and systematic phenomena as diglossia, multilingualism and hybrid teaching formats. This year's symposium will discuss the topic of hybridity from a research and methodological perspective in an effort to raise interest and concern for its complexity and prospects in a research and teaching environment. The discussion of the many facets of multilingualism in its translatory and methodological dimensions will hopefully contribute to greater knowledge and acceptance of this global phenomenon in our everyday lives.

    “Phusis kai phuta”. Nature and plants in Ancient Greece

    Phusis kai phuta is a research network that aims to gather and share ongoing research on nature (phusis) and plants (phuta) in ancient Greece. We are currently running our fourth online seminar series. We are particularly interested in three sets of interrelated topics. (1) Vegetal poetics: when and to which ends were plants mentionend in Greek poetical, philosophical and medical texts? (2) Botanical analogies: what models did plants offer to ancient Greek authors for speculating about cosmogony and cosmology, politics and society, psychology and ethics, the body and kinship? (3) The history of phusis: what concepts did this term cover exactly and how are we to grasp them without ironing out their differences from our concept(s) of nature?

    T. S. Eliot in translation

    On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of The Waste Land’s first publication, the LARCA (Laboratoire de recherches sur les cultures anglophones, UMR CNRS 8225, université de Paris) is very pleased to invite T.S. Eliot scholars, and specialists of Modernism more generally, to share and discuss their (re)assessment of the reception of T. S. Eliot’s works and ideas in the various languages of Europe. We are especially, but not exclusively, interested in probing the role of translation in reception and canonization processes, that is, in the formation and reshaping of literary canons and their effect on the circulation of literary theory.

    The Archaeology of Power through Discourse

    Interstudia n°33

    The changes from the socio-political life constantly bring about major transformations also encountered in contemporary communication and in the current ways of expression. More than ever, the clash with the dramatic events which have affected the whole world lately, imperatively demands us to ponder on words as a way to influence the actions and the power discourse or as a way to influence, to act upon and to control the others. Therefore, the current issue of our review, Interstudia, aims at a united effort to reflect upon the forms and ways through which discourse illustrates different degrees of power.

    Blended learning of foreign languages: A new reality in higher education

    Over the last decade, there has been a shift in education strategies from traditional methods of instruction to a more innovative methods of teaching, involving information and communication technologies (ICTs) and social interaction mediums. The theory of integrating ICTs in foreign language education combined with classical ways is a good example of what educationists call blended learning (BL). Attempting to put this theory into practice, this conference is expected to bring together different experiences of scholars worldwide to synthesize a common framework for action. Exploring teachers and students attitudes towards using different BL methods would familiarize practitioners for more professional development.

    Le corps envahi dans la littérature italienne (XIXe-XXIe siècle)

    Depuis quelques décennies ont fleuri les études, qui, dans des champs disciplinaires très divers, ont renversé la primauté traditionnelle que l’Occident octroyait à la dimension psychique de l’être humain (esprit, âme, intellect) pour faire place au corps, non comme simple substrat matériel et biologique, mais comme construction historique au statut varié, pensé et envisagé selon des perspectives culturelles très différentes, et pris dans un réseau dense de relations sociales, politiques et symboliques. Portés par ce mouvement, nous nous proposons d’examiner le rôle que joue la littérature dans la définition de cet habitat véritable des êtres vivants, et plus précisément, de mettre en évidence les différentes formes d’« invasion » qui se font jour dans la littérature italienne depuis le décadentisme jusqu’à nos jours.

    Dreaming Things

    Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Object Worlds and Dream Cultures

    While the close interconnection between the universe of things (expanding in a commodity-shaped way), the dream and its reflection in arts and media may be considered a founding trope of European modernity around 1900, the extension of our focus on pre-modern contexts and transcultural constellations in the present opens up new perspectives on connections between object cultures and dream cultures.

    Voix du poème en prose

    eLyra nº 19

    Ce numéro de la revue eLyra cherche à interroger et à remettre en perspective le poème en prose et / ou l’œuvre en prose poétique à partir de recherches centrées sur la notion de voix, et cela sans limites prédéterminées en matière d’époque, langues ou traditions littéraires. Cette approche, basée sur la voix, prétend donner de l’espace à des études qui requestionneront le lieu commun du choc formel associé au poème en prose à la lumière de nouvelles compréhensions du problème d’expression que ce genre pose. Étant associé autant au narrateur qu’au sujet lyrique, ou dissocié des deux, le poème en prose rend possible des interrogations spécifiques, par le biais de sa structure narrative ou de sa dimension lyrique, sur qui ou quoi y a la parole.

    Between ethics and semiotics. Signs and nature in the Anthropocene era

    “Filosofi(e)Semiotiche” journal (Il Sileno Edizioni), volume 9, n. 1, 2022

    The Anthropocene, unlike other previous eras, is commonly recognized as the era in which the impact of human beings is most incisive in determining the dynamics of the climate and the planet in which we live. With this Call we intend, therefore, to highlight some aspects of the Anthropocene in order to suggest a rethinking of the relationship between human nature and the surrounding environment ; this will allow us to specify how ethics and semiotics can be used in a rethinking of these two categories, and, in general, of the link between language and nature, which inevitably involves the need to review our ways of “making world”.
