09/12/2019 – D’Annunzio and the dimension of beauty

Biblioteca di Studi Letterari e Linguistici

Gianni Oliva
Università degli Studi “G. d’Annunzio” Chieti-Pescara

Domenica Falardo

The lecture investigates the concept of beauty, fundamental in the varied activity of Gabriele D’Annunzio. His destiny of aesthete revolves around this idea, but it is an aestheticism which has nothing theoretical or superficial and directly involves institutions. D’Annunzio fights against a society made ugly by the “profit”, based on banking and financial systems: in this way the dimension of beauty becomes an instrument far from vacuous, responsible for penetrating in the most intimate fibers of the social life.

23-25/10/19-1820. Global Revolution.

1820-21 Global revolution
Seminary on the ongoing research
Salerno-Napoli, 23- 25 ottobre 2019

The proximity of the Bicentennial of the liberal revolutions of Cadiz and Naples (1820) and of the connected extension of the crisis to the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, gives the opportunity for an initial assessment of ongoing research and historiographical perspectives related to this topic. It was a global crisis, which played a major role in the origins of the contemporary world. The new questions formulated by the political, institutional and cultural historiography open a profitable space for research innovation, which is the main objective of this open seminar.

The conference was born with the aim of reflecting on the issues concerning the migratory phenomenon that affected southhern Italy from the last twenty years of the XIXth century toward specific areas of Latin America.
The chosen theme will be analysed from a perspective both historical and literary in order to frame the phenomenon more widely, gaining the different interpretative bases that define it.

The seminar focuses the debate on the relationship between politics and the notion of future during the Cold War. Great ideological assumptions have been involved in the global reasoning about history and its directions. Political concepts such as “the end of history” are explored at the crossroads of different disciplines such as semantics of history, politology and philosophy of history.


14/03/19-Cycle of lessons “From use to grammar”

Biblioteca di Studi Letterari e Linguistici, Edificio D3, 3°piano

E. Calaresu
Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia

Dialogue strategies to reactivate shared knowledge and introduce a new topic: the exemplary case of «(do you have) present X?» And «do you know X?»

In this presentation I will discuss some conversational routes of two Italian expressions (“(hai) presente X?” and “Sai X?”) and how they can grammaticalize into two different types of markers (topic-introducer markers and meta-knowledge parenthetical markers). I will especially dwell upon their function of introducing new topics in conversation, and argue the need of critically re-thinking both the (too often taken for granted) relations between topic and referent, and the rather too simplistic clear-cut divide between sentence-topic and discourse-topic.

Repetitions and resonance in class discussions

The presentation will be devoted to analyzing repetitions in class discussions and in other conversations between primary school pupils and their teachers, with the aim of discussing some first data on the presence and role of repetition in children’s conversations and of investigating the relations between repetition and cognitive and psycholinguistic factors (in particular, priming effects) which may facilitate repetition and, therefore, determine or condition this type of functional correlate. Repetition will be considered in the perspective of Du Bois’ dialogic syntax, as generating “dialogic resonance” between the utterances produced during an interaction, with the effect of activating affinities across the utterances and of linking them “along multiple dimensions of linguistic form and meaning” (Du Bois 2014).

07/03/19-I lincei per la scuola/4 – From inferences to comprehension of texts

Aula P1- “Guido Sodano”, Facoltà di Scienze MM.FF.NN., Edificio F3, piano 1


Grazia Basile

Fabiana Rosi

The aim of this talk is to focus on some nodal aspects of the process of understanding a text.
As linguistic and psycholinguistic studies have shown, it is not a linear (or cumulative) process, given by the simple comprehension of a sequence of sentences. In order to have an effective understanding of a text, linguistic knowledge must be complemented by a series of basic knowledge or knowledge of the world that allows to attribute meaning to information.
In this regard, a crucial role is played by inferences, operations that can ensure local coherence in the development of the representation of the meaning of the text.
In the laboratory activity will be considered some types of text (narrative, regulatory, descriptive-expositive, etc.) to see how, depending on the textual types, the inferences are diversified and put the reader in front of different tasks.

06/03/19-National and international experiences of e-learning in the Humanities Expériences nationales et internationales de didactique distancielle en SHS

Biblioteca Studi Letterari e Linguistici

As the need of academic e-learning courses is nowadays burgeoning, in June 2018 the CRUI (Conference of Italian University Rectors) promoted the “National Programme for Digital University” with the scope to enhance teaching innovation, courses’ inclusiveness, interaction between university and industry, lifelong learning. To win such challenges, it is fundamental to meditate on the best practices to exploit technological instruments and e-learning environment in order to enrich the courses with shared dynamic and interactive spaces, multimedia contents, hypertextual links, frequent updates and either assessment or self-assessment sessions, without reducing teaching quality.
Within this perspective, the workshop co-organized by the Università di Salerno and the Université Grenoble Alpes aims to create a common ground for discussion about e-learning experiences carried out in Italy, Europe, and United States for courses for undergraduate, graduate and PhD students as well as for teacher training. The comparison among the different experiences will enable to individuate effective strategies for academic e-learning courses, with particular attention to Humanities, such as Foreign Languages, Language Teaching, Linguistics, Literature, Romance Philology, History.

28/02-01/03/19-Genealogy and morphology of the “extravagant” character

Aula Nicola Cilento
edited by MOD (Italian society for the study of literary modernity)

We will do a research on the eccentric characters, out of the norm, unpredictable, who have populated a lot of twentieth century literature (and not only).
The weirdo is a leading actor, a participant in literary modernity, difficult to pigeonhole in a statute (escapes the categories of Genette), as, instead, happens, with relative simplicity, for the character-fool or the character-stupid.
