NATURE CONTRE CULTURE : COMMENT LE POUVOIR INTERPRÈTE-T-IL SON HISTOIRE ?

Posted On Nov 10 2015 by

L’analyse des images de la tragédie du « 11 Septembre » produite et manifestée dans l’effondrement des Tours du World Trade Center va constituer le point de départ d’une réflexion sur l’articulation des mécanismes symboliques de l’imaginaire politique de la société capitaliste. Il y sera questionné la valeur symbolique des différents éléments du « décor », isolés tout d’abord les uns des autres, et par la suite associés, au travers d’une grille de lecture proposée par un type de récits mythologiques inscrit dans la tradition indo-européenne (et plus particulièrement judéo-chrétienne), à la genèse de notre civilisation. Nous prendrons ainsi comme récits référents ceux de …

AN INTEGRATED VIEW UPON POSTMODERNIST CONCEPTUAL IDENTITY

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

Nowadays, identity is continually changing. In order to assume a valid social identity, an individual needs the others’ recognition. In this case, modernity involves targeting the others. The individual is able to build and/or rebuild his identity depending on the opportunities life offers to him and which he chooses deliberately. He does not know for sure whether he has made the right decision but he has to discover on his own, the ‘true’ identity that suits him. From a postmodernist point of view, identity becomes less stable and more fragile. Postmodernist identity builds itself by assuming some roles and images. …


AMERICAN CULTURE AND UNDERSTANDINGS OF BLACKNESS

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

Around the latter half of the 1960’s, in the academic circles around the world, and especially in the American academy, race and ethnicity came to the forefront as a new and important approach to the study of literature. Theorists belonging to all sorts of ethnic minority groups – Asian, African, Hispanic, etc. – became actively concerned with identity problems and with representing the white majority’s others. They became involved with the way in which the life of ethnic minorities was represented in a society dominated for centuries by white interests and cultural institutions. They were among the first to realize …


IDENTITY IN TRANSLATION: THE CASE STUDY OF ‘MEMORIES OF MY BOYHOOD’ – ION CREANGĂ

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

In the age of globalization, recognizing and preserving identity is essential, especially with translation as mediator between cultures. The task of the translator remains as difficult as ever in the face of translating foreign, often untranslatable concepts and structures. This paper takes a closer look at the translation of Ion Creangă’s Amintiri din copilărie, produced by Ana Cartianu and R.C. Johnston in 1978. Such an enterprise becomes problematic given the abundance in terms associated with the life and customs of Romania’s countryside in the 19th century, making it all the more complicated to create a clear cut image of Creangă’s …


THE EMERGENCE OF IDENTITY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EARLY AMERICAN DRAMA

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

American drama was not totally American until the second half of the 18th century. Europeans and other ethnic and racial groups presented plays in their various languages, and the main motif of the plays was religion. After the Declaration of Independencein 1776, drama started to flourish in Americaunder the European (especially British) influence in style, and American myth and manners in subject matter. Yet, in the plays, such as John Leacock’s The Fall of British Tyranny and John Burk’s The Battle of Banker’s Hill, performed before 1830, a new American character and American subjects began to appear. Early American dramatists …


THE AMERICAN CONCEPT OF HOME. A MULTIFACTORIAL CORPUS DRIVEN STUDY

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

This study examines the concept of HOME in19Cand20CAmerican culture. It draws on the theoretical assumptions of Cognitive Linguistics (Lakoff 1987, Langacker 1987), and seeks to capture the cultural patterns of this concept by examining language structure. Previous approaches in this line of research lack a means for result verification or hypothesis falsification. In response to this important shortcoming, we employ quantitative corpus-driven methods. Adapting these methods to the study of abstract concepts allows a means for verifying results but also for more accurate representation of variation inherent in society and cultural system.


LA TROISIEME CULTURE ET LA POSSIBILITE D’UNE COMMUNICATION INTERCULTURELLE AUTHENTIQUE ; POUR UNE POSSIBLE THEORIE DE LA TOLERANCE INTERCULTURELLE

Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

Le lien entre la communication interindividuelle et celle interculturelle devient évident au moment où l’on comprend la culture dans le paradigme de l’anthropologie culturelle – par exemple, telle qu’elle est définie par E. B. Tylor, T. Parsons ou Chombart de Lauwe. Dans l’étude introductive au volume Images de la culture, intitulée « Systèmes de valeurs et aspirations culturelles », Paul-Henry Chombart de Lauwe classifie les approches de la culture comme il suit: 1) la culture en tant que développement de la personne dans la société, 2) les cultures propres à des sociétés et milieux sociaux particuliers et 3) le problème du développement …

Scopul principal al acestui articol este de “a lua pulsul” ideologiei în fiecare din cele trei jurnale ale lui Ionesco, încercînd să studiem modul de inserare a discursului social, a discursului celuilalt în propriul său discurs pentru a pune în evidenţă rolul pe care acestea îl joacă în economia jurnalelor ionesciene.
