Anti-Capitalist Critique and Travelling Poetry in the Works of Lorna Dee Cervantes and Rage Against the Machine

Donna Maria Alexander
Margaret Randall states that “as we re-search our histories ... infrequently there is an exploration of an uncharted, complex terrain, and some new mapping happens” (8). Adopting Randall’s statement, this paper examines travelling poetry and anti-capitalism in the poetry of Lorna Dee Cervantes and the song lyrics of Rage Against the Machine (RATM) both of whom are based in California. With reference to Randall’s assertion Cervantes and RATM present complex transnational mappings of silent and...

Providing Help In Hard Times : A Blueprint For Successful Strategic Planning

William Buck
In response to a lack of funding during the 2007–2009 recession, many library systems reduced or eliminated professional and library support positions. Traditional outcome measurements were not sufficient to convince tax-depleted legislatures to allocate more funds to libraries. In response to the crisis authors recommended cost-saving measures and tactics for perception management. Studies have shown that the demand for library services increases during times of economic hardship. The production of a strategic plan justifying budget...

La barbarie y su superación en Francisco Javier Clavijero

Víctor Zorrilla
In his studies on the indigenous cultures of the territory of New Spain, the Enlightenment-influenced Jesuit Francisco Xavier Clavijero makes frequent use of the term “barbarian”. This notion, whose implications Clavijero expressly develops, has a specific function in his works as an interpretative instrument for social reality. The notion of barbarianism is oriented, ultimately, towards promoting the human and cultural development of the Indians via education. Clavijero thus continues the Hispanic tradition of missiology and...

"A cantar, dançar, bailar". La música en diálogo con los textos teatrales de Juan del Encina

Sara Sánchez-Hernández
Desde la convicción de la dualidad del texto dramático, como texto literario y espectacular, y del convencimiento de que para estudiar el género teatral, en concreto el quinientista, es necesaria una mirada bajo la óptica de la semiótica, este trabajo focaliza el análisis del corpus teatral del dramaturgo Juan del Encina a partir la perspectiva del carácter plurisígnico del teatro. El objetivo es realizar un examen de las posibilidades dramatúrgicas de sus églogas atendiendo a...

‘A Rather Ungoverned Bringing Up’: Postwar Resistance and Displacement in The World My Wilderness

Ian Whittington
Rose Macaulay’s The World My Wilderness (1950) rewrites post-Second World War crises of displacement, child combat, and state re-integration through the genre of the domestic melodrama. Adolescent protagonists Barbary and Raoul move from France to London at the end of the war as both combatants and refugees, having spent the conflict aiding the Resistance.

The Morality of Musical Men: From Victorian Propriety to the Era of #MeToo

Linda Shaver-Gleason
During an interview, Andris Nelsons, music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, stated unequivocally that sexual harassment was not a problem in the world of classical music because, “If [people] could realize how important [music and art] are…I believe they would become better human beings.” The interview was in response to the recent spread of the hashtag #MeToo, in which people described personal experiences of sexual harassment and/or abuse, some within the classical music community....

La Philosophie des Mathématiques chez Leibniz. Lignes d’investigation

Enrico Pasini
This study of Leibniz's philosophical views on mathematics starts from the rank he assigned to them in the encyclopedia of knowledge. Mathematics, in many Leibnitian writings, is proposed to other disciplines as an example to follow: they are an essential component of the new, at the same time encyclopaedic and demonstrative knowledge he is advocating. If we then consider the object of mathematics and their foundations, we see that Leibniz grants an ideal existence to...

Sherlock and Global Transfandom

Lori Morimoto
When I proposed this paper, the idea was to examine a number of global iterations of Sherlock fandom from a transfandom perspective. However, as doing this in fact involvesgoing ‘deep’ in at least two popular cultural contexts in order to effectively pull out examples of how I believe transfandom works more generally in a transnational setting, my talk today will center mostly on Japanese Sherlock transfandom.

La fonction des niches dans les bibliothèques romaines

Alaya Palamidis
In the libraries of Celsus at Ephesus and of Rogatianus at Timgad, the function of which is attested by inscriptions, bookcases are usually reconstructed in the niches. These examples have been used to identify other buildings which contained niches as libraries. However, Lora Johnson, in her 1984 Ph.D. thesis, rightfully questioned such an interpretation of the niches. The reconstruction of bookcases seems implausible, since the access to them would have been either impossible, or at...

Der Akt des Fotografierens – Ein performativitätstheoretischer Blick auf die Häuser Mattern und Moll von Hans Scharoun

Waltraud Indrist
Im Œuvre des Architekten Hans Scharoun lässt sich ab den 1930er-Jahren eine besondere und spezifische Art der Fotografie ausmachen. Hinter diesen Fotografien liegt dabei weit mehr – zum Teil Brisantes – verborgen als ihnen beim ersten Anblick anzusehen wäre. Anhand der Häuser Mattern und Moll werden diese Fotografien im vorliegenden Text untersucht. Dabei soll gezeigt werden, inwieweit ein Blick auf den Akt des Fotografierens und damit auf die Fotograf*innen sowie auf die an der Fotografie...

Arcanum Artis Inveniendi: Leibniz and Analysis

Enrico Pasini
Leibniz was undoubtedly a many-sided man, and a polymathic mind, if ever there was one. The concept of analysis is notoriously, for its part, a polycephalous monster, and nearly all its meanings are spread through Leibniz’s works, in juridical, scientific, mathematical, or philosophical contexts, under different conditions and with different purposes. Yet even for such manifold uses should exist some common ground and univocal meaning. The analysis of thoughts and that of truths, the analysis...
