    Voice and Environment
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This workshop will bring artists and scholars together for a sustained conversation on the theme of voice and environment. It will explore physical, cultural, sonic, and social interactions between voice and environment, as well as issues relating to atmosphere, climate change, precarious vocality, and varied physical and cultural dynamics of breath and breathlessness. How do our voices interact with the physical, cultural, political, historical, and cosmological milieus in which they are...

    Keynote Speaker: Sean Franzel (University of Missouri) Presented in Conjunction with the Ann ual Grilk Lecture: Celia Applegate (Vanderbilt) During the 1980s German media theorist Friedrich Kittler published a series of highly influential books and essays outlining a materialist approach to literary and cultural history, one freed from hermeneutic fantasies of immediacy and focused instead on the medial conditions that made thought possible in the first place, the hardware that...

    Sound Waves (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    “Voice” is both a key metaphor and a key medium of politics. Political participation is figured as “having a voice”; the word vote has its origins in the Latin vovere , “to vow.” But what of the sonic and acoustic occurrences not encompassed by such presumed promises, declarations, and rightful audiences? What of the sonic scenes that cannot be readily counted or that do not coalesce into a coherent event? In this moment globally, “voice” seems remarkably weak as a metaphor and medium for...

    This study questions how early twentieth-century auditory technologies altered sound perception, and how these developments shaped the modernist novel. Without polarizing vision and audition, this book reveals how modernists tend to use auditory perception to connect characters, shifting the subject from a distanced, judgmental observer to a reverberating body, attuned to the moment

This book examines metaphors drawing on combinations of visuals, language, gestures, sound, and music. Investigated texts include advertising, political cartoons, comics, film, songs, and oral communication. Where appropriate, the influence of genre and cultural factors is thematized.

    The Sound of the Past. A special issue of The Journal of Historical Fictions
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    What is the role of sound in historical fictions? How can we try to replicate what the world sounded like in the past? What is the role of music in period dramas? Why are contemporary musicals with historical settings so popular? How can sound be described in historical novels? The Journal of Historical Fictions is looking for papers on any aspect of “sound”, broadly defined (music, mechanical sounds, songs that tell a historical narrative, voices, etc.) for a special issue on sound...

    The Voices of Literature: Radio, Periodicals, and Cultural Conflict (1922-1939)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This project is situated at the intersection of periodical studies and literary radio studies. With the introduction of sound studies into literary studies, radio has become an important focal point in modernist studies. Modernist authors made use of radiogenic features in their work and engaged in broadcasting. If radio is no longer the forgotten medium it once was, the relationship between the radio and the periodical press has not yet been well understood. Literary scholars focus on either...

    In his paper, "The Canonization of German-language Digital Literature," Florian Hartling discusses "Net Literature," a relatively young phenomenon, that has its roots in experimental visual and concrete poetry and hypertext. With the use of new media technology, this new genre of literature has acquired much interest and is now considered to be one of the most important influences in contemporary art. Not only does Net Literature connect sound, video, and animation with interactivity and allows new forms of artistic expression, it also impacts significantly on the traditional functions of the literary system. Hartling suggests that, in relation to Net Literature, the notion of the "death of the author" gives birth to the "writing reader." Hartling presents the results of his study where he applies the concept of "canon" to German-language Net Literature and where he attempts to find out whether, in this new form of literature, a "canon" has already been formed. Based on Karl Erik Rosengren's framework of "mention technique," a sample of Germanlanguage reviews of Net Literature was analyzed. The study intends to test the applicability of Rosengren's method to the analysis of Net Literature, that is, whether it is valid to use a method that was originally developed for the empirical study of the traditional literary canon for the study of an emergent Net Literature.

    This fourth volume of the Iconicity series is like its predecessors devoted to the study of iconicity in language and literature in all its forms. Many of the papers turn the notion of iconicity 'inside-out', some suggesting that 'less-is-more'; others focus on the cognitive factors 'inside' the brain that are important for the iconic phenomena that are produced in the 'outside' world. In addition this volume includes a paper related to iconicity in music and its interaction with language. Other papers range from the theoretical issues involved in the evolution of language, to those that offer many 'inside-out' claims, such as claiming that nouns are derived from pronouns, and as such should more properly be called 'pro-pronouns'. Also, this volume includes perhaps the first English-language analysis of the iconic aspects of sound symbolism in a prayer from the Koran. This is a truly interdisciplinary collection that should turn some of the notions of iconicity in language and literature 'outside-in' and 'inside-out'.

    It has become an axiom in comic studies that "comics is a language, not a genre." But what exactly does that mean, and how is discourse on the form both aided and hindered by thinking of it in linguistic terms? In Comics and Language, Hannah Miodrag challenges many of the key assumptions about the "grammar" and formal characteristics of comics, and offers a more nuanced, theoretical framework that she argues will better serve the field by offering a consistent means for communicating critical theory in the scholarship. Through engaging close readings and an accessible use of theory, this book exposes the problems embedded in the ways critics have used ideas of language, literature, structuralism, and semiotics, and sets out a new and more theoretically sound way of understanding how comics communicate. Comics and Language argues against the critical tendency to flatten the distinctions between language and images and to discuss literature purely in terms of story content. It closely examines the original critical theories that such arguments purport to draw on and shows how they in fact point away from the conclusions they are commonly used to prove. The book improves the use the field makes of existing scholarly disciplines and furthers the ongoing sophistication of the field. It provides animated and insightful analyses of a range of different texts and takes an interdisciplinary approach. Comics and Language will appeal to the general comics reader and will prove crucial for specialized scholars in the fields of comics, literature, cultural studies, art history, and visual studies. It also provides a valuable summary of the current state of formalist criticism within comics studies and so presents the ideal text for those interested in exploring this growing area of research.

    Emily Dickinson and the Anthropocene (ACLA 2020)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Scholars periodize Emily Dickinson’s poetry in several ways: of the American nineteenth century; as post-Puritan, post-Romantic, or pre-Modernist; of a secessionist moment. But how, we ask, does her life and work partake in what scholars today call the Anthropocene? Though the Anthropocene—the geological age we share with Dickinson—is a disputed term with varying meanings, it is most crucially recognized as a period in which human industry and activity has irreparably altered the global climate....

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Essai sur l’origine des langues traces how language once filled with song and emotion becomes divested of meaning, distorted by commerce and conventions to mere rational forms of rhetoric, devoid of its original musical inflection. The fall of language and music comes to embody moral degradation in the pursuit of private interests, away from the most universal and energetic initial language and song, that of le cri de la nature .

    This paper focusses On the discussion of the preservation of expressive aspects in translation., Considerations are grounded on the HJELMSLEVian concepts of the isomorphy between the planes of content and expression, which are both constituted by-substance and form. The present study intends to show that the connotative equivalence of a text can only be achieved in the target language when attention is paid to both the formal-stylistic and the textual-normative dimensions. This involves the appropriation of the stylistic values of the linguistic expression in the source language and, mainly, the understanding of the tropes and the relationships between them. Thus, the present study draws on discourse analysis, comprehending "enunciation" theories and the rhetorical and pragmatic considerations on the level of expression. Considering that the literary text is privileged in providing stylistically marked choices, it is important to highlight the phonetic and semantic correspondences, that is, the close relationship between sound and meaning, which harbours one of the major difficulties in translation. The theory is applied to "Os Sertões" (English translation: "Rebellion on the Backlands") by Euclides da Cunha. Der vorliegende Aufsatz diskutiert das Problem der Erhaltung expressiver Texteigenschaften bei der Übersetzung. Den Ausgangspunkt der Überlegungen bildet die HJELMSLEVsche Konzeption der Isomorphie zwischen Inhalts- und Ausdrucksebene, die ihrerseits beide aus Substanz und Form zusammengesetzt sind. Das Ziel ist zu zeigen, daß die konnotative Textäquivalenz in der Zielsprache nur erreicht wird, wenn man formal-stilistische und textnormative Gesichtspunkte in Betracht zieht, was die Aneignung der Stilwerte sprachlicher Ausdrücke der Ausgangssprache und besonders das Verständnis der Stilfiguren und der zwischen ihnen bestehenden Beziehungen voraussetzt. Es ist mithin eine diskursanalytische Perspektive (Theorien der Äußerung und rhetorisch-pragmatische Überlegungen zur Ausdrucksebene eingeschlossen), von der sich die vorliegende Arbeit leiten läßt. Wenn man den literarischen Text als den Ort markierter stilistischer Auswahlen par excellence auffaßt, ist es wichtig die phonetischen und semantischen Korrespondenzen hervorzuheben, d.h. die enge Beziehung zwischen Klang und Bedeutung zu berücksichtigen, die der Übersetzung besonderen Widerstand bietet. Angewandt werden die theoretischen Überlegungen auf den Roman "Os Sertões" (dt.: "Krieg im Sertão") von Euclides DA CUNHA.
