Mikhail Bakhtin’S Heritage In Literature, Arts, And Psychology. Introduction, Slav N. Gratchev, Howard Mancing Sep 2018

Mikhail Bakhtin’S Heritage In Literature, Arts, And Psychology. Introduction, Slav N. Gratchev, Howard Mancing

Dr. Slav N. Gratchev

This volume celebrates hundred years of Bakhtin’s heritage: in September 13 of 1919 in the literary journal Den Iskusstva (The Day of the Art) was published the first work of Mikhail Bakhtin, Art and Answerability, the work that became his literary manifesto.

This book aims to examine the heritage of Mikhail Bakhtin in a variety of disciplines. To achieve this end, we drew upon colleagues from eight different countries across the world--United States, Canada, Spain, Great Britain, France, Russia, Chile, and Japan--in order to bring the widest variety of points of view on the subject. But we also wanted ...


Don Quixote In Russia In The Early Twentieth Century: The Problem Of Perception And Interpretation, Slav N. Gratchev Phd Jul 2018

Don Quixote In Russia In The Early Twentieth Century: The Problem Of Perception And Interpretation, Slav N. Gratchev Phd

Dr. Slav N. Gratchev

This study logically continues my previous examination of the perception of Don Quixote in Russia throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and how this perception changed over time. In this new article, I will again use a number of materials inaccessible to English-speaking scholars to demonstrate how the perception of Don Quixote by Russian intelligentsia shifted from humorous to complete admiration and even idealization of the hero. Don Quixote was more and more frequently compared with Prometheus, the most powerful and most romanticized personage of Greek methodology. Indeed, “начав юмористический роман, осмеивающий увлечение современников рыцарскими похождениями, Сервантес и не думал ...

‘Dritter Raum’ Und ‘Hybridität’: Der Fall Des Argentinisch-Deutschen Schriftstellers Robert(O) Schopflocher, Reinhard Andress May 2018

‘Dritter Raum’ Und ‘Hybridität’: Der Fall Des Argentinisch-Deutschen Schriftstellers Robert(O) Schopflocher, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

The percentage of German immigrants in Argentina, measured by the total population of the country, never exceeded the 2% threshold, but their integration took many different forms. ' This was already proven by the 2008 colloquium in Buenos Aires on the subject "La inserci6n de la minoria alemana en Argentina entre 1900 y 1933" (published in 2008 as Volume IV of the Anuario Argentino de Germanfstica). Even this colloquium, which does not commit itself to any period of time, will further broaden the integration therna. What makes the writer Robert {o) Schopflocher interesting in this context is an incorporation in Argentina ...


Erinnerungen An Robert(O) Schopflocher: Ein Multikulturelles Leben Als Vorbild, Reinhard Andress May 2018

Erinnerungen An Robert(O) Schopflocher: Ein Multikulturelles Leben Als Vorbild, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Ich kam vor etwa zehn Jahren auf Robert Schopflocher zunächst über seine Doppelsprachigkeit. Damit meine ich nicht nur eine relativ beliebige Mehrsprachigkeit, sondern auch die Fähigkeit, literarisch in zwei Sprachen schreiben zu können, oft als Ergebnis des Exils. In seinem ersten Erzählband auf Deutsch, Wie Reb Froike die Welt rettete, las ich mich fest, und da ich Spanisch durch Studium und Ehe kann, nahm ich mir ebenfalls seine früheren, in der Sprache geschriebenen Texte vor, etwa den Erzählband Ventana abierta (Offenes Fenster) oder den Roman Extraños negocios (Seltsame Geschäfte). Auch seine weiteren Bücher auf Deutsch schaffte ich mir immer schnell ...

Fritz Kalmars “Das Wunder Von Büttelsburg”: Eine Österreichische Stimme Aus Dem Südamerikanischen Exil Zur Vergangenheitsbewältigung, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Fritz Kalmar, 1911 in Wien geboren und aufgewachsen, studierte Jura und arbeitete zunächst in einer Anwaltskanzlei, bevor ihn der „Anschluss” 1938 zur Flucht zwang. Er landete schließlich in Bolivien, wo er bei einem deutsch-englischen Nachrichtensender in La Paz Arbeit fand und 1941 zum Mitbegründer der Federación de los Austríacos Libres wurde, die sich überparteilich antifaschistischen und karitativen Tätigkeiten widmete. Ebenfalls wurde er Schauspieler und Bühnenautor einer österreichischen Theatergruppe um Georg Terramare und Erna Terrel. 1953 heiratete er Terrel, und zusammen zogen sie nach Montevideo, wo Kalmar seine künstlerische Arbeit fortsetzte. Später als Konsul Österreichs in Uruguay konnte er politischen Gefangenen ...


The Role Of Working Memory Among Non-Traditional Foreign Language Students, Gabriela Olivares-Cuhat, Michelle H. Ploof May 2018

The Role Of Working Memory Among Non-Traditional Foreign Language Students, Gabriela Olivares-Cuhat, Michelle H. Ploof

Gabriela Olivares-Cuhat

Over the last 40 years, a growing number of nontraditional students have joined the ranks of higher education. However, due to a number of internal and external factors, these students face multiple social, economic, and academic challenges that may limit their success in postsecondary education. The focus of this article is to examine the implications of these challenges on the learning of a foreign language (FL), and more specifically on the role played by working memory (WM) with nontraditional FL learners. To this end, research studies in the fields of psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology and neuroscience are reviewed and their findings ...
