  • Literature in Politics

    • Authors: Imogen Birkett
      Pages: 1 - 47
      Abstract: The relationship between English Literature and Politics has, historically, been understated and underexplored in academia. This article recognises the value of this relationship, significantly contributing to the field through original research which explores the political appropriation of literature. Using politicians’ references to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four in parliamentary debate as a precedent, this research shows how fiction is used as a strategy of political argument. In supporting this claim, this research engages with the rising approach of Rhetorical Political Analysis, and wider theory which views political rhetoric as argumentation.

  • An Aesthetic Portrayal of Republican-era Shanghai

    • Authors: Ambra Minoli
      Pages: 48 - 61
      Abstract: This article examines the aesthetic representation of Republican-era Shanghai in Zhang Ruogu’s 張若谷 Duhui jiaoxiangqu 都會交響曲 (‘Urban Symphony’). Guiding the construction of the city are Zhang’s aesthetic principles of cijimei and podiaomei, two concepts taken from Japanese modernism, which convey a unique vision of Shanghai modernity. On the one hand, cijimei refers to a kind of ‘exciting beauty’, which, according to Zhang Ruogu, is the apex of modern aesthetics. Zhang Ruogu locates cijimei within modern Shanghai in places such as the city’s cafés, dance halls, and cinemas. On the other hand, podiaomei can be translated as ‘discordant beauty’. This kind of beauty differs from the traditional concept of harmonic beauty, as it originates in more modern surroundings that emphasise simplicity and excitement. Zhang Ruogu characterises podiaomei as ‘simplification’ and ‘excitement’. When reading Zhang Ruogu’s works, it is possible to identify these aesthetic elements in relation to his depiction of Shanghai. Thus, these concepts enhance our understanding of Zhang Ruogu’s representation of urban culture in Republican-era Shanghai.

  • McGahern

    • Authors: Mark Wakefield
      Pages: 62 - 76
      Abstract: The creative kingdom of the writer of fiction is an imaginative space full of potential. There is no shortage of examples of such writing in the work of the late Irish writer John McGahern. This text seeks to link McGahern’s fictive world with notions of utopian thinking in how it can liberate the conscious from false notions of values and belonging that, in turn, affect the nature and quality of freedom of expression.

  • The Use of Miro in Teaching Practice

    • Authors: Raad Khair Allah
      Pages: 77 - 91
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has hugely affected our lives, including the daily work of university students and teachers. However, such difficulties can emerge as drivers for change to discover new pedagogical possibilities. Miro is a tool which can help students and teachers cope with the challenges faced during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this critical reflection, I will explore my experience of using Miro in a digital project created on the website of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Warwick in 2022. The major aim behind this reflection is to show how Miro can be used as a novel way of engaging with students in a physical classroom or virtual spaces. The article discusses using the versatile digital platform Miro as a pedagogical tool for motivating students’ creativity in composition or literature classrooms. The key question that my reflection seeks to answer is ‘how can teachers use Miro to increase student engagement and consequently adapt to the modern and post-pandemic needs of education'’ It is expected that this reflection will deepen both teachers’ and students’ knowledge of Miro as well as provide teachers with a new tool and method for online teaching.

  • The Doctor-Writer Experience of Intissar Haddiya

    • Authors: Abdelhafid Jabri
      Pages: 92 - 98
      Abstract: Intissar Haddiya is a researcher and Professor of Nephrology in the faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, Oujda, Morocco. So far, she has published impactful works in her field of research. As a writer, I. Haddiya has published widely on social, cultural, and health issues in French in addition to some earlier promising endeavours in English as a student. Being an active citizen, she is highly engaged in community life through her key roles in several nephrology associations. In this interview, Professor I. Haddiya shares with the Anglophone reading community her writing experience and sources of inspiration, the intersection between being a writer and being a doctor, as well as her future literary projects. Her successful experience will most probably inspire emerging talents, particularly women.

  • Review of Wang and Munday (2021) Advances in Discourse Analysis of
           Translation and Interpreting

    • Authors: Ran Yi
      Pages: 99 - 104
      Abstract: Evidence that our research has become increasingly interdisciplinary is mounting. In Translation and Interpreting Studies, the cross-fertilisation of linguistics and sociology through the use of discourse analysis methods at micro- and macro levels has enabled our researchers to examine the nuanced understanding of the role of our translators/interpreters as social agents in cultural and ideological mediation. The book under review enriches our understanding of the immense potential of discourse analysis methods in translation studies and beyond. The informative volume captures the advances in discourse analysis in translation and interpreting studies and explores the interconnectedness between linguistic choices, communicative goals and socio-cultural contexts. It serves to bridge the gap in the mostly Eurocentric landscape by concentrating on language-specific issues when translating between European languages and non-European languages. It is intended for interested readers, researchers, scholars and practitioners who engage in communicative, social, and cultural discursive practices.
