Henry James and the Ethics of Recollection

Greg Zacharias
Henry James’s melancholic quality of mind enabled him to understand his relation to the past so that he could free himself of its hold without, at the same time, separating himself from it. It shaped his way of living. As James demonstrates in his notebooks, his past remains with him through his awareness and naming of it. His melancholy relation to the past enables him to use it as part of his identity and, at...

Schindler’s List Revisited

Melenia Arouh
Schindler’s List, directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 1993, recounted the true story of Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party and war profiteer, who saved over a thousand Jews during World War II. Since then, other, likewise mainstream, films dealing with the Holocaust have been released, provoking some critical discussion but very little compared to the heated debate that followed the release of Spielberg’s film. Leaving aside this initial skeptical reaction, this...

The Evolution of Fantastical Storyworlds: A Study of Tabletop Role-Playing Settings

Dimitra Nikolaidou
Landscapes evolve. Forests turn into cities, rivers change course and even mountains slowly erode. Perhaps it stands to reason then, that the landscapes of the fantastic evolve as well. In recent times, the evolution of the imaginary worlds found in speculative works of fiction appears to favour diversity and inclusiveness, keeping in touch with wider societal trends. This transition in fantastic chronotopes is extensively chronicled in the genre of Tabletop Role-Playing Games, or TRPGs for...

Videogames as “Minor Literature”: Reading Videogame Stories through Paratexts

Souvik Mukherjee
Videogames have, since the beginning of game studies as a discipline, been placed at a problematic cusp between games and narratives. Stories are important in videogames, especially in those such as Grand Theft Auto IV (2008), Fallout 3 (2008), and other games with a pronounced narrative intention. However, the element of play and multiplicity of the narrative makes it difficult to analyze them with traditional critical tools: it is easy, therefore, to dismiss them from...

The prosodic colon in stress, tone and prosodic templates: Evidence from Iquito and elsewhere

Nina Topintzi
This paper revisits the colon, a prosodic constituent that has received marginal attention mainly in the stress literature (cf. Hammond 1987 and Green 1997). I argue that the colon may prove relevant also elsewhere in phonology, such as tone and prosodic templates. Data from Matumbi and Japanese, among others, exemplify. Moreover, a detailed case study of the less discussed Iquito (Michael 2011), illustrates the significance of the colon in its stress assignment. A formal analysis...

Mapping Texts Differently: A Case for Re-Reading the South African Imaginary

Liz Gunner
This essay argues that an overly narrow conception of what constitutes a national or regional literature can skew the way in which literary history is "read" and a national and regional identity is understood. In the African and the South African case, the ongoing production and consumption of performed art in the form of song constitutes a major part of the way in which people imagine themselves in the world, both locally and globally. Such...

\"Our Worldly Work Supplies Us\": \"Vulgarizing\" Heidegger Through Argentinean Literature

Gisle Selnes
Against the background of Gayatri Spivaks concept of "worlding," this article stages four encounters between a major representative of Argen­tinean literature (Echeverria, Sarmiento, Borges, Cortdzar) and a specific figuration of the Other (Nomad, Oriental, Hyperborean, Monster). It is argued that the target texts, all belonging to the "mainstream" of the Argentinean tradition, achieve their literary effect in a surprisingly invari­able manner. Whereas the foundational fictions of Echeverria and Sar­miento seem to solicit a Spivakian reading,...

Genitive non-head nouns in L2 English compounds: The effect of LI formal properties

Eleni Agathopoulou
This is a cross-sectional study on the acquisition of English compounds, e.g. 'a bell designer' and 'truck industry', by Greek adults. Despite the structural similarity between the LI and the L2 forms, due to a difference they have at PF it was hypothesized that learners misanalyse the L2 items as complex DP phrases and that, consequently, the interlanguage forms would exhibit the effect of LI formal properties involved in phrasal noun combination. As a result,...

Globality is not Worldliness

R. Radhakrishnan
This essay argues that worldliness and globality do not signify the same phenomenon. Whereas "worldliness" is an attempt to understand reality as simultaneously one and multilaterally produced, as objective and perspectival, globality is the fait accompli of processes of globalization that resolutely disavow their ideological intentionality. Focusing on the issue of Global Language and Global English, this essay seeks to implicate the regime of Global English in the genealogy of its dominance, and suggests that...

Η προσφυματική επανάλυση στην ελληνική

Asimakis Fliatouras
The basic aim of the current paper is to determine, describe and classify the derivational reanalysis in the Greek language, as well as to locate the basic factors that activate it. Specifically, we will try to give a definition of reanalysis based on Ralli's morphological model (2002, to appear) and taking into account the morphological category of the components, the amount of the participating affix (complete, partial), the output (merging, expansion, reduction, etc.) and the...

Ο ηθοποιός

Ευάγγελος Παντόπουλος
Ο «αυτοσχέδιος μονόλογος» Ο ηθοποιός του κορυφαίου ηθοποιού Ευάγγελου Παντόπουλου αποτελεί, ενδεχομένως, ένα από τα πρώτα κείμενα στην ιστορία του θεάτρου μας, όπου ένας καταξιωμένος επαγγελματίας ηθοποιός προβληματίζεται πάνω σε ζητήματα που αφορούν τη φύση, τα μέσα και την αποστολή της τέχνης του. Η ιστορική σημασία του μονολόγου προκύπτει, επίσης, από την προσπάθεια του δημιουργού του, να ξεκόψει από τη ρομαντική αντίληψη του οιστρηλατημένου καλλιτέχνη, που ερμηνεύει το ρόλο βασισμένος στο ταλέντο του, και να...

Είμαστε οι Πέρσες!: επινοώντας εκ νέου τη θρηνητική φωνή του αρχαίου δράματος

Μάριος Χατζηπροκοπίου
Η παράσταση Είμαστε οι Πέρσες! ήταν μια σύγχρονη διασκευή των Περσών του Αισχύλου, η οποία παρουσιάστηκε τον Ιούνιο του 2015 στο Φεστιβάλ Αθηνών και Επιδαύρου. Σκηνοθετημένη από τη Γιολάντα Μαρκοπούλου και με συμμετέχοντες πρόσφυγες και αιτούντες άσυλο από το Αφγανιστάν, το Πακιστάν και το Μπαγκλαντές, η παράσταση προέκυψε από τα πενταετή θεατρικά εργαστήρια της ομάδας StationAthens.

Going Out, Not Coming Out: Queer Affects, Secluded Publics, and Palestinian Hip-Hop

Alex Karaman
In an effort to a draw attention to queer, Palestinian cultural practices that resist homonationalism and colonialism, this paper begins as a conversation between the fields of Palestine studies and scholarship on sexuality and passing in order to identify the important relationship between, on the one hand, aesthetics and movement in public spaces and, on the other hand, Palestinian social life and identity formation. The conversation then shifts to grounded theorizations of two key elements...

Από την λογοτεχνία στο θέατρο. Μικρό σημείωμα της επιμελήτριας του αφιερώματος

Μαρία Αθανασοπούλου
«Δραματουργία είναι η πράξη της δημιουργίας νοήματος διά της αναγνώρισης και της οργάνωσης μοτίβων. Η πράξη της σύνθεσης ή της κατασκευής στο θέατρο σήμερα γίνεται αντιληπτή στο πλαίσιο της παράστασης ως όλου δυναμικής και διάρκειας. Ο Τιμ Έτσελς αποκαλεί την πράξη ‘κατασκευή χρόνου’, ο Ευγένιο Μπάρμπα την αναφέρει ως ‘το έργο των πράξεων’»: μεταφρασμένο απόσπασμα του Προλόγου (σ. xxi) στο έργο της K.Trencsényi, Dramaturgy in the Making, 2015. Στο εισαγωγικό κείμενο του αφιερώματος που ακολουθεί...

English collocations in EFL situations: towards a lexical approach in foreign language teaching

Christina Gitsaki
The present paper deals with the phenomenon of Collocation. There are two parts: the first part gives an introduction to collocations and how they have been dealt with by linguists and lexicographers. Methodological problems in the study of collocations and possible applications of such a study are outlined. The second part of the paper focuses on the pedagogical applications of a study of English collocations under the light of the Lexical Approach, with special reference...

Από το χαρτί στη σκηνή και από τις ιστορίες στην Ιστορία: Η διασκευή της Νυχτερίδας του Στρατή Τσίρκα

Έλσα Ανδριανού
Η διασκευή της Νυχτερίδας, τρίτου και τελευταίου βιβλίου από τις Ακυβέρνητες Πολιτείες του Τσίρκα, έγινε για την ομώνυμη παράσταση, σε σκηνοθεσία Τρουπάκη (συμπαραγωγή Εθνικού Θεάτρου / Θεάτρου Τέχνης), που παίχτηκε στο Θέατρο Τέχνης (Φρυνίχου), τον χειμώνα του 2018. Πρώτη μέριμνα για τη συγκεκριμένη διασκευή ήταν να κρατηθεί στο μεγαλύτερο δυνατό ποσοστό η γλώσσα του βιβλίου, και όχι απλώς η ιστορία του, διότι -κατά την δραματουργό της απόπειρας αυτής, και συγγραφέα του άρθρου- η φόρμα ενός...
