Consociational Power Sharing Arrangements as a Tool for Democracy: The Experiences of Macedonia and Kosovo

Entela Culcani
The protection of the different communities involved in the ethnic conflicts and power sharing arrangements among them have become necessary corollaries to democracy in the western Balkan region. In the case of Macedonia and Kosovo, power sharing arrangements have been imposed by the international actors through the peace agreements, in order to initially reach the goal of establishing peace in the countries. However the establishment of real democratic participation through power sharing settlements still remains...

From norms to macro-norms? The translation of classics seen in a global, diachronic framework

Massimiliano Morini
Recently, Descriptive Translation Studies has been busying itself with single case studies rather than general surveys, with individual translations rather than normative tendencies. Ostensibly, this has been done in an attempt at avoiding the pitfalls of excessive ‘globalism’, and in order to shift the focus from the pressures exerted by society to the contributions given by translators, each according to his/her habitus. While recognizing the value of these ‘localizing’ studies, the present article argues that...

Vom Textarchetyp zum Textprototyp. Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der prototypischen Hypothese in der Textlinguistik

Giancarmine Bongo
The present study aims to discuss the significance of the prototypical hypothesis with regard to text-theoretical questions. The prototypical hypothesis in text linguistics can be traced back to the basic assumption that the bundle of features, which can be attributed to a text, shows a fundamental openness. This means that a definition of ‘text’ in the most literal sense of the word (i.e., the demarcation of a series of fixed text features, at the same...

The Languages of Afrofuturism

Adriano Elia
Afrofuturism is a transdisciplinary cultural movement based upon the unusual connection between the marginality of allegedly “primitive” people of the African diaspora and “modern” technology and science fiction. At a first glance, Afrofuturism may sound like an oxymoron. “Afro” and “Futurism” are likely to be considered as terms in opposition, the former which used to evoke images of primitivism and backwardness, the latter – ever since F. T. Marinetti’s definition in 1909 – celebrating instead...

Una propuesta de reflexión sobre la tarea didáctica del error

Roberta Giordano
El objetivo del trabajo es analizar el uso que hacen nuestros estudiantes italófonos de español como lengua extranjera con respecto a la selección modal, siguiendo los presupuestos teóricos y metodológicos del análisis de los errores. Las necesidades procedentes de la globalización, y la inserción en realidades cada vez más multiculturales, donde la comunicación tiene que ser rápida y certera, obligan al desarrollo de destrezas en términos de individuación ágil de los errores y, por consiguiente,...

Motion events in English as a fourth language: a linguistic analysis of a selected episode in multilingual learner narratives

Martina Irsara
This article reports on a study that investigated the description of motion events in narrative texts written by 13-14 and 17-18 year olds learning English as a fourth language at schools where multilingualism is a key objective. The focus was placed on the learners’ references to the animate beings featured in the story and their use of verbs and satellites in order to describe the movement situations elicited from the image selected for analysis from...

Spazi complessi, territorialit� plurime. Spunti di riflessione attorno ai concetti di territorio, territorializzazione e territorialit� (ed al loro utilizzo in ambito storiografico)

Francesco Somaini
En The article is focused about the idea that territory, territorialisation and territoriality are polysemic concepts. Efforts to come up with a shared notion have been numerous, and also quite effective. But the etymology of the Latin word territorium had actually a plurality of meanings. In the Middle Ages the concept was mainly associated to the notion of Jurisdiction (jurisdictio), and this link implied that for medieval jurists it became quite normal to imagine that...

Uno spazio per città medie e “micropoli”. Il caso della Calabria

Liberata Nicoletti
IT Il sistema insediativo calabrese viene studiato seguendo il percorso delle trasformazioni che, ieri come oggi, guidano il mutamento sociale e politico del territorio regionale con riferimento a quanto intervenuto nell’urbanizzazione, nell’abbandono delle aree interne e delle campagne, ma anche nei mutamenti del sistema infrastrutturale e delle attività produttive. L’analisi si inquadra all’interno degli scenari economici e sociali che interessano le modificazioni di lungo periodo dello spazio economico regionale rivolgendo particolare attenzione alla configurazione di...

«Quest’abuso pur troppo insolente, ed insoffribile». Le politiche giurisdizionali sui testamenti dell’anima nel Regno di Napoli (secoli XVI-XVIII)

Francesco Gaudioso
En The essay reconstructs the jurisdictional policy that, in the Modern Age, the central authorities of the Kingdom of Naples adopted to oppose the «ancient and immemorial» custom (widespread in France, England and Spain) of the so-called testaments of the soul, imposed by some bishops of the Kingdom on the assets of the ab intestato dead, committing a series of abuses (refusal of the celebration of masses for the souls and of the christian burial)...

Antonio Baldacci: Italia e Austria alleate-concorrenti in Albania e Adriatico orientale (1896-1903)

Francesco Martelloni
IT Questi studi naturalistici e geopolitici del geografo – e semi-diplomatico – Antonio Baldacci vennero redatti tra la fine dell’Ottocento e il primo Novecento e pubblicati per conto della Società Geografica Italiana. Analizzavano la ancora marginale penetrazione economico-politica dell’Italia nei Balcani, nella Turchia europea e soprattutto in Albania dove, invece, era tradizionalmente ben più attivo l’Impero austro-ungarico. Cosicché tra Italia e Austria, sebbene alleate nella Triplice, crescono tensioni e concorrenzialità economico-politiche e militari che, oltre...

La confraternita «dei morti» di Tricase nel giurisdizionalismo napoletano del XVIII secolo

Pierpaolo Panico
IT Il saggio ricostruisce le dinamiche amministrative ed economiche di due istituzioni ecclesiastiche (la «Confraternita de’ Morti» e il «Monte Piccolo de’ Morti») legate alla chiesa parrocchiale di Tricase nella seconda metà del Settecento. Particolare attenzione viene rivolta alle relazioni tra gli amministratori degli uffici religiosi e la popolazione locale. Essendo l’attività economica incentrata sul mercato della terra, attraverso l’enfiteusi, e sul sistema creditizio, queste fitte relazioni rappresentavano dei veri e propri networks strettamente connessi...

New record of the toothpony, gazza minuta (osteichthyes: leiognathidae) from the coasts of Muscat City at the Sea of Oman, Sultanate of Oman

Guglielmo Forges Davanzati & Andrea Pacella
IT Il saggio si propone di fonire una ricostruzione analitica della teoria monetaria keynesiana così come esposta nel Trattato sulla moneta del 1930. Si verificano, a tal fine, elementi di affinità con la teoria monetaria neoclassica del periodo e soprattutto rilevanti elementi di “eterodossia” rispetto alle tesi dominanti in quel periodo. In particolare si conferma che, anche prima della Teoria Generale, Keynes sottolineava la superiore efficacia delle politiche fiscali rispetto alle politiche monetarie al fine...

I comunisti pugliesi negli anni del «compromesso storico»

Valerio Vetta
IT La «svolta democratica» e la proposta di «compromesso storico», che segnarono l’inizio della segreteria di Enrico Berlinguer nei primi anni Settanta, posero le periferie del PCI di fronte al compito di rielaborare e declinare la strategia del partito sul territorio. Assumendo la regione Puglia quale caso di studio, il contributo interpreta tempi e modi della circolazione della linea politica dal centro alle federazioni provinciali e ai quadri di base. L’indagine svela che lo studio...

In their best seller book ‘Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think’ (2013) Mayer-Schönberger and Cukier argue that...

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) for the evaluation of Public Healthcare Structures.

Carmine Viola & Marco Benvenuto
As stated in the Economist Intelligence Unit report (2011), the failure to develop a coherent plan of action in health care systems is linked to deeprooted problems related to the organization of health care structures. These problems form the starting point of this work: the aim of the present study is to develop the potential of a Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) Model creating a non-parametric pattern for evaluating the eciency of healthcare structures in a...

On the structure of involutions and symmetric spaces of dihedral groups

K. K. A. Cunningham, T. Edgar, A.G. Helminck, B.F. Jones, H. Oh, R. Schwell & J.F. Vasquez
We initiate the study of analogues of symmetric spaces for finite groups, with the current work focusing on the family of finite dihedral groups. In particular, we investigate the structure of the automorphism group, characterize the involutions within the automorphism group, and determine the fixed-point subgroup and symmetric space of each automorphism.

The intersection graph of ideals of a lattice

M. Afkhami & K. Khashyarmanesh
For a finite lattice L, we define and study the intersection graph of ideals, denoted by G(L). We study the interplay of lattice-theoretic properties of L with graph-theoretic properties of G(L).

Geometric programming approach in multivariate stratified sample surveys in case of non-response

Irfan Ali, Shafiullah Ullah & Sanam Haseen
This paper provides an attempt to utilize the geometric programming approach in multivariate stratified sample surveys in case of non-response. The problem has been solved in two phases. In first phase the multivariate stratified sample surveys in case of non-response has been formulated as geometric programming problem (GPP) and the solution is obtained. The obtained solution is the dual solution of the formulated GPP. In second phase with the help of dual solutions of formulated...
