L’Analisi Linguistica e Letteraria è una rivista internazionale di linguistica e letteratura peer reviewed. Ha una prospettiva sia sincronica che diacronica e accoglie ricerche di natura teorica e applicata. Seguendo un orientamento spiccatamente interdisciplinare, si propone di approfondire la comprensione dei processi di analisi testuale in ambito letterario come anche in ambito linguistico. La rivista è organizzata in tre sezioni: la prima contiene saggi e articoli; la seconda presenta discussioni e analisi d’opera relative alle scienze linguistiche e letterarie; la terza sezione ospita recensioni e una rassegna di brevi schede bibliografiche riguardanti la linguistica generale e le linguistiche delle singole lingue (francese, inglese, russo, tedesco). La rivista pubblica regolarmente articoli in francese, inglese, italiano e tedesco, e occasionalmente anche in altre lingue: nel 2010, ad esempio, ha pubblicato un volume tematico interamente in russo.

In the tiny borderlands of Istria and Italy, from the forests of Monte Nevoso, to the hidden valleys of the Tyrol, to a Trieste café, Microcosms pieces together a mosaic of stories - comic, tragic, picaresque, nostalgic - from life's minor characters. Their worlds might be small, but they are far from minimalist: in them flashes the great, the meaningful, the unrepeatable significance of every existence.

By bringing the concepts of identity, comparativism, and communication together, this volume invites a reinterpretation of these defining concepts of postmodernism. Composed of contributions from Australia, Azerbaijan, Japan, Romania and the Ukraine, this interdisciplinary and intercultural book investigates the multiple identities activated in broader discursive contexts. This collection of nineteen chapters opens with an introductory overview followed by two parts: the first, focusing on Plural identities and comparativism, contains a series of case studies that can be subsumed within imagology and comparativism; the second, Communication and discourse, illustrates two directions of research: literary communication and terminology. In spite of the methodological and thematic polyphony of its contributions, the volume adopts a unified and coherent tone. By integrating the study of contextual and discursive identities, this book will be of interest to all those involved in image and literary studies, in both linguistics and culture.

A Different Sea
Author: Claudio Magris
Publisher: Random House
Early this century Enrico, a young intellectual, leaves the city of Gorizia with its abundant population and culture, to spend several years living on the Patagonian pampas, alone with his ancient Greek texts, his flocks and, every now and then, a woman. He has been taught by his closest friend, Carlo, a philosopher/poet who commits suicide in his early twenties, to search for an authentic life, free of social falsehoods. But in his search for this unattainable goal, Enrico destroys every chance he has of a normal existence. This is portrait of a world in ferment, a decaying empire shaken by war and revolution, and a life-long search for meaning.

Ever since the discovery, in 1977, of the royal tombs of Vergina and the treasures they contained, an increasingly rich and nuanced portrait of ancient Macedonia has emerged from the ongoing archaeological excavation and historical research. The evidence testifies to the enormous cultural wealth of this ancient kingdom, which, despite its many internal and external conflicts, brought the fruits of Greek civilization to the very ends of the known world, while preserving its own distinctive cultural features. This book, intended for general readers and specialists alike, conveys the excitement of the recent discoveries by combining splendid illustrations with a synthesis of up-to-date archaeological and art historical information provided by leading French and Greek experts in both fields. Together the authors cover Macedonia from the ascendancy of Philip II to its defeat by the Romans. A kingdom located at the outskirts of the Greek city-states, Macedonia in many respects may appear to have been backward in its lifestyle. But the evidence of an original currency and the exploitation of forests and precious metals reveals that its cities had developed sophisticated economies. A flourishing of artistic activity has also been detected in the unearthing of astounding examples of funerary architecture, frescos and paintings that tell us much about Greek painting, and an extraordinary body of mosaics and metal work. Incorporating these and many more discoveries, this book is both a technical reference and a lavish work of art history. The contributors, in addition to René Ginouvès, are Iannis Akamatis, Manolis Andronicos, Aikatérini Despinis, Stella Drougou, Anne-Marie Guimier-Sorbets, Miltiade Hatzopoulos, Lilly Kahil, Georgia Karamitrou-Mendessidi, Kalliopi D. Lazaridou, Dimitris Pandermalis, Olivier Picard, and Michel Sakellariou.
Contrastive Linguistics, roughly defined as a subdiscipline of linguistics which is concerned with the comparison of two or more (subsystems of) languages, has long been associated primarily with language teaching. Apart from this applied aspect, however, it also has a strong theoretical purpose, contributing to our understanding of language typology and language universals. Issues in theoretical CL, which also feature in this volume, are the choice of model, the notions of equivalence and contrast, and directionality of descriptions. Languages used for illustration in this volume include English, German, Danish, and Polish.
English Medium Instruction
Author: Ernesto Macaro,
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Ernesto Macaro brings together a wealth of research on the rapidly expanding phenomenon of English Medium Instruction. Against a backdrop of theory, policy documents, and examples of practice, he weaves together research in both secondary and tertiary education, with a particular focus on the key stakeholders involved in EMI: the teachers and the students. Whilst acknowledging that the momentum of EMI is unlikely to be diminished, and identifying its potential benefits, the author raises questions about the ways it has been introduced and developed, and explores how we can arrive at a true cost–benefit analysis of its future impact. “This state-of-the-art monograph presents a wide-ranging, multi-perspectival yet coherent overview of research, policy, and practice of English Medium Instruction around the globe. It gives a thorough, in-depth, and thought-provoking treatment of an educational phenomenon that is spreading on an unprecedented scale.” Guangwei Hu, National Institute of Education, Singapore Additional online resources are available at www.oup.com/elt/teacher/emi Ernesto Macaro is Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Oxford and is the founding Director of the Centre for Research and Development on English Medium Instruction at the university.
