Por Uma Avaliação Objectiva, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Por Uma Avaliação Objectiva, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Com base em mitos educativos muito difundidos, e cavalgando o corcel do temor reverencial dos docentes antes o educativamente correcto, têm-se instalado perspectivas muito injustas sobre o que se deve e como se deve avaliaro dito "desempenho" dos professores, designadamente do ensino superior. Este artigo, sem discutir as questões filosóficas de base de toda a avaliação, procura minimizar os danos do processo em curso propondo concretos critérios de uma avaliação que não seja a manifestação do puro arbítrio dos poderes académicos pontuais, manipulando grelhas subjectivas e complexíssimas. Pretende, pois, uma avaliação justa, pela objectividade.

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Muito do que se passa nas nossas sociedades, actualmente, depende de termos ou não termos um olhar filosófico, e de termos ou não termos a capacidade perspectivista do antropólogo. O presente artigo chama a atenção para a necessidade de a Filosofia, tentando furtar-se à tirania do Logos na versão dos ares "grão senhores", de que falava Kant, procure o olhar de "terceiro", e o despojamento de recursos da Antropologia cultural.

Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan 2010 Illinois Wesleyan University

Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan

Scholarship

This essay examines the manuscript context of the songs of Thibaut de Champagne that were either marginalized in or excluded from A. Wallensköld’s 1925 edition. An evaluation of the placement and ordering of Thibaut’s songs in the codices, as well as their rubrics and melodies, affords an understanding of the construction of these chansonniers, obscured through decades of reliance on print editions. A rapid scrutiny of these linguistically (C) and musically (R) marginal manuscripts both reveals how little we know about the transmission of trouvère lyric and underscores the importance of a material-philological approach for all future editions ...

Translating Slavery, Volume 2: Ourika And Its Progeny, Doris Kadish, Françoise Massardier-Kenney

Translating Slavery explores the complex interrelationships that exist between translation, gender, and race by focusing on antislavery writing by or about French women in the French revolutionary period.

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher 2010 Institute of Technology, Tallaght

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher

Articles

The name Pierre Joannon is synonymous with Irish studies and with Franco-Irish relations. I can think of few, if any, people who are more worthy recipients of this beautifully presented Festschrift than the Honorary French Irish Consul, scholar and former President of the Ireland Fund de France. You get some idea of his stature from the list of contributors to this book: two former Taoisigh, Garret FitzGerald and John Bruton, two Nobel Laureates, John Hume and Seamus Heaney, poets Brendan Kennelly and John Montague, a host of historians including Dermot Keogh, Joe Lee, Eunan O’Halpin and Kevin Whelan, distinguished ...

À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers 2010 University of Richmond

À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

Dans le drame bourgeois de Diderot, il n'y a pas de « bourgeois». Pas de personnages bourgeois (par exemple, pas de M. Jourdain ou de Turcaret dans le rôle du bourgeois à ridiculiser), pas de valeurs bourgeoises (qui sont après tout une invention du XIXe siècle), pas d'esprit de groupe bourgeois - de conscience de classe - qui unirait et distinguerait les protagonistes du Fils naturel (1757) et du Pere de famille (1758). Béatrice Didier, dans son Diderot dramaturge du vivant, remarque ce flottement conceptuel sans pour autant s'en distancer : « il s'agit de représenter la vie de bourgeois ...

Cixous, Hélène, Abigail Rine 2010 George Fox University

Cixous, Hélène, Abigail Rine

Faculty Publications - Department of English

Excerpt: "Hélène Cixous is a highly prolific Francophone theorist, poet, novelist, playwright, philosopher, and literary critic: indeed, she is a writer whose work resists easy categorization. Although the majority of her publications are works of experimental fiction, she is most widely known in the English-speaking world for her contributions to French feminist and literary theory and for formulating the concept of écriture feminine, or feminine writing."
