  • The Kalaripayattu and the Capoeira as Masculine Performances: From Bodies
           of Resistance to Neoliberal Tourism Bodies

    • Authors: Indrani Mukherjee, Sanghita Sen
      Abstract: This essay proposes to look at the emergence of two embodied martial arts from Brazil and India as tools of resistance against colonization on one hand while also comprising different kind of masculinities in postcolonial national narratives, on the other. The bodies of African slaves and Kalaripayattu martial artists became the spaces over which the contesting colonial powers met and then wrote their violent histories of dominance and power. These bodies, however, reacted violently through their disguised or secret martial moves, thus creating a counter-narrative with which to write back. Perceived as a threat, they were banned by their colonial masters; modern democratic Brazil and independent India later welcomed them back and ‘flaunted’ them to accommodate them in a deserving space of dignity within their respective national tourism industries.[1]However, today they risk being appropriated by neoliberal and global promoters of hyper-masculinity or by conservative right-wing ultra-nationalists. These people have continued to resist such moves as political and epistemological interests are increasingly challenged by the above mentioned forces.
      [1] The use of the verb ‘flaunt’ in this paper refers to a kind of celebratory aspect of affirmative action aimed at national belonging.

  • Transcultural and Imagological Figures: Disenchantment, Allophilia, and
           Belonging in Enrique Vila-Matas and Antonio Tabucchi

    • Authors: Maria João Simões
      Abstract: In some contemporary literary works, the presence of the ‘other’ and the representation of the ‘foreigner’ emphasize the problematic ways by which human beings relate to foreign people, revealing how those issues are pressing concerns in modern society.This study questions how the shift in the way we perceive identity and belonging are depicted in Enrique Vila-Matas and Antonio Tabucchi’s fictions. Both authors aesthetically represent episodes and situations where characters’ relation to space is problematic, showing how the idea of belonging can be related not only to a specific country or a special space, but also to a desired space. Furthermore, based  on the pregnancy of the notion of ‘dwelling’ theorized by Emmanuel Levinas, this study  analyses how characters and narrators aesthetically represent the complexity of belonging and examines some of the transnational transfers and multicultural connexions displayed by both autors, mainly in Never Any End to Paris and It’s Getting Later All the Time.

  • Two Smokers in Search of Identity: Comparing the Representations of
           Tobacco Use in Alastalon salissa and Der Zauberberg

    • Authors: Mika Hallila
      Abstract: The essay compares the representations of tobacco use in two modernist novels. By analyzing the smoker characters from Volter Kilpi’s Alastalon salissa and Thomas Mann’s Der Zauberberg the essay considers particular literary representations of tobacco use and, in terms of that, also particular cultural meanings of tobacco. The comparison is between pipe smoking and cigar smoking and the analysis focuses on how they differ in terms of constructing the identities of the fictitious characters. As a result, it is stated that the pipe represents the stability of identity whereas the cigar represents the instability of identity.

  • Belonging and Longing of the Beautiful Jewess and the Jewish Villain in
           the Nineteenth-Century German, English and French Novel

    • Authors: Catherine Jeannine Bartlett
      Abstract: The antithetic pair of the Jewish Villain and his daughter the Beautiful Jewess made their entry into literature with Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’ and Marlowe’s ‘The Jew of Malta’. Nineteenth-century non-Jewish novelists re-use them to reflect their ambiguous feelings towards Jews. As an object of conquest and conversion, the character of the Beautiful Jewess is portrayed as belonging to the Bible and the Orient. Due to his resistance to conversion the Jewish villain is confined to the fading ghettos where he withdraws into an inanimate world of his own creation. Although following different paths, their longing to belong to society is denied. At the end of the nineteenth century a passage from religious to racial Anti-Semitism takes place, leading them back to the status of pariah. From now on both of them are accused of coveting the money of a decadent aristocracy, who is struggling to cope with economic change. She is reduced to a prostitute and he to a dangerous cosmopolitan parvenu, exposing the shattered values of nineteenth-century society.

  • Les Juifs de la Mitteleuropa : le « ciment » perdu

    • Authors: Igor Fiatti
      Abstract: From the expulsion from paradise to the expulsion from hell: this parable signifies the fate of the “cement” of the Mittel-European tradition: Central Europe’s Jewish intellectual élite. It is clear, however, that its body has never been homogeneous; indeed, the dissolution of this “cement” has showed in advance – in all its metaphorical drama – the itinerary of the Western civilization, its identity crises, its processes of resistance and assimilation. We intend to approach our subject through the paths of the literary Mitteleuropa, from the Habsburg mythogenesis to the unspeakable confusions of the post-Nazi Austria.

  • La Palestine d’Edward Said : La dernière frontière ou l’impossible
           appartenance

    • Authors: Yves Clavaron
      Abstract: Out of Place (1999), Said’s Memoir, brings the Palestinian nation into play, which is characterised by a double loss, both personnal and political. Even if the title seems to account for the impossibility of going back to a place impossible to repatriate, the Memoir’s purpose is at the same time to implement a reconstruction of the self and an historical restoration through the conjuring-up of the lost nation. Being worked by the double belonging proper to exile, Said is built as a « border-man » towards Palestine, that he’ll never know as a formal nation within internationally recognized borders and which will always represent for him an impossible belonging.

  • Longing and Belonging Within an Academic Family of the 19th Century: The
           Example of Clarissa and Leopold von Ranke

    • Authors: Andreas Dieter Boldt
      Abstract: This essay will examine the perceptions of longing and belonging of Clarissa von Ranke, nee Graves (1808-71) and her husband, the German historian Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886). While Leopold was greatly influenced by his firmly rooted belonging to the historically grown state of Prussia, not the nation-state of Germany created in 1871, Clarissa was an Anglo-Irish living in Berlin, since her marriage in 1843. Clarissa incorporated many aspects of her Irish cultural heritage into her daily living in Berlin, thus creating an international and diverse environment. Even if, over time, Clarissa felt more like a Prussian, she never forgot her home in Ireland. Regardless of the varying national aspects of belonging, both Leopold and Clarissa shared a common identity with a cultural European unity represented in the cosmopolitan cultural atmosphere of the Salon Ranke run by Clarissa and the writing of European national histories by Leopold.

  • Beyond the East-West Dilemma: Rethinking Greekness Through Diffracted
           Gazes in Contemporary Greek Travelogues

    • Authors: Peggy Karpouzou
      Abstract: Travel writing has been viewed as one of the main sources of national typologies and is often held responsible for the consolidation of stereotypes about otherness and for the promotion of an imperialist agenda. This paper aims to investigate conceptions of Greekness in contemporary Greek travelogues which involve a rethinking of stereotypical national representations. The analysis proceeds by proposing the method of “questioning home” in travelogues through diffracted gazes towards the traveller’s homeland as a result of his encounter with otherness. In the second part, Greekness is explored beyond the nation-state approach and the long-held national stereotype of the “Greek particularism”, Greece’s isolation because of the country’s unresolved tension between East and West. A. Vistonitis’ and M. Kassolas’s travelogues reporting their travels to the East (China) and to the West (USA) respectively at the end of the 20th century are examined as case-studies. Through narrators’ dialogues with their hosts and the raising of relevant political and geopolitical issues, “transnational” conceptions of Greek identity are explored: the notions of “diaspora”, “cosmopolitan citizenship”, “openness” and “connectivity” challenge the national narration based on “purity” and “exclusion”, and facilitate the investigation of potential roles for Greece in the globalized world of the early 21st century.

  • Belonging in Ancient Greek Oral Tradition

    • Authors: Blaž Zabel
      Abstract: In the paper I will discuss the notion of belonging in Ancient Greek oral tradition. I will argue that oral literature, because of the specific nature of oral language, promotes belonging to a particular locus, community and culture. I will demonstrate my argument with an analysis of Homeric Hymn to Artemis 9 and its expressions of belonging to polis Smyrna. In the conclusions I will discuss how all forms of literature, even written literature, to some extent posses these oral characteristics and thus promote belonging to a particular place and culture.

  • Poetry and Community in the Work of José Ángel Valente

    • Authors: Manus O'Dwyer
      Abstract: This article examines the work of Spanish poet José Ángel Valente (1929-2000) in terms of his exploration of the relation between the poet, poetic language, and community. In it I discuss the tension in Valente’s work between a desire to create a language that would be foundational of community and the ethical commitment to alterity. I argue that the poetry of the second half of Valente’s career, which has been considered hermetic, or even solipsistic, can be read in terms of a contemporary philosophical discourse that seeks to think community in terms that are not exclusive of alterity.

  • Être là ou ne pas être là – esquisse de typologie du spectral dans
           quelques œuvres littéraires occidentales contemporaines

    • Authors: Catherine Graal
      Abstract: RÉSUMÉ en français La fiction contemporaine soucieuse du monde actuel accueille parfois, de manière paradoxale, des phénomènes qui font penser aux récits de fantômes anciens : certains  personnages sont des revenants, d’autres, comme hantés, éprouvent de vraies difficultés à vivre au présent. Peut-on définir une typologie de ces personnages et celle-ci peut-elle être interprétée? Un corpus assez varié permet d’esquisser des hypothèses, à développer dans un travail plus ample. Des romans de langues française, anglaise, espagnole, portugaise, allemande, serbe révèlent au moins trois grandes catégories, qui ne sont pas exclusives : le passé, l’autre culture, la révolution non accomplie travaillent des écritures que l’on peut éclairer grâce à des théories du roman (Ricœur, Pavel), des emprunts à l’esthétique plastique (Warburg, Foster, Didi-Hubermann) et à des considérations culturalistes et philosophiques (Bhabha, Zizek, Derrida). Ces fictions qui mettent en scène un monde réaliste font éprouver une altérité radicale en son sein même, comme une nécessité à reconnaître : il s’agit d’une nouvelle dimension idéographique de la fiction (selon le mot de Pavel dans La Pensée du roman), où la paradigme actantiel cède au profit de formes pathétiques qui expriment des enjeux collectifs. ABSTRACT  in English Contemporary realistic fiction sometimes includes features which echo ancient ghost tales. Some characters come back after their death, other experience great difficulties inhabiting the present, as if they were haunted. Can we suggest and interpret a categorization of such novels ? A varied corpus enables us to make a few hypotheses, to be explored in further  research developments. Novels in French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German or Serbian reveal at least three non exclusive groups : the past, other  cultures, unaccomplished revolutions trouble realistic writings, that can be enlightened by theories of the novel (Ricœur, Pavel), theses taken from aesthtetics (Warburg, Foster, Didi-Hubermann), ideas coming from cultural studies and philosophy (Bhabha, Zizek, Derrida). Through such fictions, the reader is confronted with radical forms of alterity which he cannot ignore. It is a new « ideographic » dimension (to borrow Pavel’s word in La Pensée du roman), in which the paradigm of actions is replaced by pathetic patterns which take on broader social and ethical issues.

  • How to Study Literary Realism as Archive Art? The Case of Charles
           Dickens' Later Novels

    • Authors: Aleš Vaupotič
      Abstract: The paper proposes to approach the issue of literary realism through the prism of archive art, i.e. the artworks that are archives of objects, documents, statements, even other artworks by other artists etc. The preservation of the otherness of an entity, which is subsequently taken up and kept in an archive, is one of the key challenges involved in such projects. The second task of an archival artwork is to construct—in fact add—an encompassing totality that correlates with the authorship and gives significance to the archive-artwork as a whole. The paper scrutinizes possible links between the archival approaches to art production in the 20th and 21st centuries and the practices of realist writing beginning in the 19th century.

  • The Landscape of Theory, the Form of a Discipline. On La scrittura e il
           mondo: An introduction

    • Authors: Niccolò Scaffai
      Abstract: Between has always been attentive to the teaching of literature. The tools for teaching and studying the theory and the comparative history of literature are in fact important objects of our discussion. That is why we chose to dedicate the "In discussione" section to a volume like La scrittura e il mondo. Teorie letterarie del Novecento (2016) by Stefano Brugnolo, Davide Colussi, Sergio Zatti and Emanuele Zinato, which is a remarkable companion for studying the subject at university level. The section includes three contributions: by Giancarlo Alfano, Valentino Baldi (who promoted the discussion)  and Luca Marangolo. Alfano in his article highlights the strengths and some lacks of the volume; Baldi emphasizes some of the crucial aspects of the book and recalls the value of the theory on an international scale; Marangolo, finally, comment on the greatest theoretical references of the volume, reflecting in particular on the importance of formal theories. The dossier is completed by a collective response of the four authors.
