A presente dissertação tratou da relação entre política e literatura nos escritos carcerários de Antonio Gramsci, em especial nos Cadernos 21 e 23. Para isso, considerou o método de restauração, proposto pela edição crítica dos Cadernos por Valentino Gerratana (1975). Propôs, para tal, duas categorias principais, crítica literária e literatura nacional-popular, que transitam entre os campos de conhecimento envolvidos. A hipótese mais geral, ou o ponto de partida da pesquisa, foi a de que a relação entre literatura e política fez parte de um esforço mais geral por Gramsci de, ao mesmo tempo, sobreviver às condições de vida no cárcere e buscar a elaboração de uma filosofia, a filosofia da práxis. No que diz respeito à crítica literária, a pesquisa buscou estabelecer uma tradução possível entre as notas carcerárias sobre a construção do intelectual orgânico moderno e aquelas sobre o "retorno a De Sanctis" como modelo de crítico literário, oposto à figura de Benedetto Croce. Aqui, a contradição entre o literato e o político é tomada como ponto de partida para compreender o nascimento do novo intelectual como "especialista + político". A pesquisa recuperou, ainda, o momento nacional-popular em Gramsci...

This dissertation explores the nexus between Buddhism and literature in Japan’s early medieval period. Specifically, it elucidates the process by which forms of court literature such as Chinese-language verse (kanshi), Japanese poetry (waka), and romance tales (monogatari) were incorporated into Buddhist rites and liturgies from the tenth through twelfth centuries and attempts to show how this process supported and was supported by Esoteric Buddhist discourse. I call special attention to a discourse on ritual performance that understands the chanting of a mantra, hymn, or poem as an act of giving the joy of the Dharma (hōraku) to the kami and buddhas. By attending to this discourse and the rituals through which it was articulated, this dissertation sheds light on the doctrinal reasons why and the practical paths by which even literary genres that were considered to be “worldly” such as nature poetry, love poetry, and romance tales were reconceived as vehicles for offering the joy of the Buddha’s teachings. The three body chapters examine a variety of rites and liturgies intended for a lay audience—often called “Dharma assemblies” (hōe) in Japanese-language scholarship—and endeavor to demonstrate how they contributed to key transformations in Japanese literature. Chapter 1 investigates the liturgy of the lecture assembly (kō-e) at Shinto shrines and elucidates how it shaped the formation of a key genre of medieval Japanese poetry called “Dharma joy” waka (hōraku waka). Chapter 2 analyzes repentance rites dedicated to Fugen (Sk. Samantabhadra) bodhisattva and considers their impact on the invention of Buddhist love poetry. Finally...

Entre 1853 et 1870, de multiples quartiers de la ville sont éventrés pour permettre la mise en place de nouveaux boulevards par le baron Haussmann, préfet de Paris sous Napoléon III. Ces travaux majeurs ont frappé l’imaginaire social et constitué un objet de fascination pour la littérature. Le mémoire se situe sur le terrain de la sociocritique. La chercheuse cherche à comprendre comment des textes de Verne, Hugo et Zola lisent la nouvelle configuration urbaine parisienne. Dans Paris au XXe siècle (1863), Jules Verne projette la destruction dans le futur et, en retour, imagine les rémanences d’un passé étrangement constructif. Bien qu’il soit en exil, Victor Hugo est très au courant des changements urbains et sociaux en cours. Dans Paris (1867), son écriture travaille à rendre compatibles les idées de ruine et de progrès. Émile Zola, avec Paris (1898), exprime les contradictions accompagnant le changement urbain par le biais de métaphores médicales et organiques proches de « l’esprit de décadence » qui caractérise la fin du siècle. En conformité avec les visées de l’approche sociocritique, c’est à partir d’une lecture interne des oeuvres, mettant à profit les ressources de l’analyse de texte...

Bipolar disorder (BD) is associated with significant impairment in multiple domains of function that often persists after clinical recovery. Current literature suggests that neurocognitive function may contribute to functional impairment in adult populations (18–60 years). However, literature in this area is heterogeneous, and no consistent correlations have been found between neurocognitive domains and general function. This review examines literature on the cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships between neurocognitive function and general function restricted to BD aiming to clarify the symptomatic and prognostic relationships between the two important clinical domains.; Bernhard T.

In this paper we study new computational methods to find equilibria in general equilibrium models. We first survey the algorithms to compute equilibria that can be found in the literature on computational economics and we indicate how these algorithms can be improved from the computational point of view. We also provide alternative algorithms that are able to compute the equilibria in an efficient manner even for large-scale models, based on interior-point methods. We illustrate the proposed methods with some examples taken from the literature on general equilibrium models

In this paper, I construct a new general equilibrium model of the United States economy that is better able to analyze energy and gross receipts taxes than previous models. Existing models in the energy literature fall into two groups: general equilibrium models of the entire economy with exogenous energy resource supply and partial equilibrium models of the energy sector with endogenous resource supply. I combine the main advantages of these two strains of the literature by incorporating endogenous resource supply in a computable general equilibrium model with highly disaggregated and flexible industry cost and consumer expenditure functions. My new model is able to analyze all the major inefficiencies caused by energy taxation, i.e. those related to production, consumption, resource rents, and externalities. In addition to its application in energy, my model is also ideal for looking at gross receipts and retails sales taxes. Gross receipts and retail sales taxes are important revenues sources for most US states and share many of the same issues as energy taxes. Retail sales taxes are commonly viewed as more efficient than gross receipts taxes because the latter apply to intermediate goods and thus result in production and consumption inefficiencies. However...

This quasi-experimental study (N = 139) measured the effect of a reader response based instructional unit of the novel Speak on adolescents' rape myth acceptance. Participants were eighth grade language arts students at a Title I middle school in a major metropolitan school district. Seven classes were randomly assigned to treatment ( n = 4) or control (n = 3) condition. Two teachers participated in the study and both taught both treatment and control classes. The study lasted a period of five weeks. Participants were pretested using the Rape Myth Acceptance Scale (Burt, 1980) and a researcher created scale, the Adolescent Date Rape Scale (ADRMS). ^ Analysis of pretests showed the ADRMS to be a reliable and valid measure of rape myth acceptance in adolescents. Factor analysis revealed it to have two major components: "She Wanted It" and "She Lied." Pretests supported previous studies which found girls to have significantly lower initial levels of rape myth acceptance than boys (p < .001). A 2 (group) x 2 (instructor) x 2 (sex) ANCOVA using ADRMS pretest as a covariate and ADRMS posttest as a dependent variable found that treatment was effective in reducing rape myth acceptance (p < .001, η2 = .15). Boys with high rape myth acceptance as demonstrated by pretest scores of 1 standard deviation above the mean on ADRMS did not have a backlash to treatment. Extended analysis revealed that participants had significantly lower scores posttest on Factor 1...

O trabalho propõe investigar o potencial pedagógico que pode existir entre a literatura e a ciência a partir do estudo de Monteiro Lobato e o ensino de química. Para isso nos fundamentamos nos referenciais teóricos que têm subsidiado as recentes pesquisas sobre literatura e ciência e as contribuições que as mesmas têm trazido para o ensino de ciências. A pesquisa focou três eixos principais: a literatura como possibilidade de humanizar a ciência, a aproximação que existe entre a imaginação artística e a científica e os \"escritores com veia científica\". Buscamos identificar os referidos eixos por meio de três importantes personagens da obra infantil de Monteiro Lobato, que distintamente, incorporam a ciência em suas falas: Dona Benta, Emília e o Visconde de Sabugosa. Também investigamos a \"veia pedagógica\" do escritor que permitiu uma aproximação com a pedagogia de Paulo Freire, uma vez que foi possível identificar a curiosidade, o diálogo, a problematização e a dúvida como pressupostos pedagógicos e metodológicos presentes nas abordagens feitas por Dona Benta, principalmente no livro Serões de Dona Benta. Realizamos a leitura de praticamente toda a obra infantil de Monteiro Lobato que demonstrou possuir um potencial pedagógico possível de ser explorado no ensino de química por meio da problematização de questões sobre a ciência e o ensino e aprendizagem de conceitos químicos. A partir da pluralidade de sentidos que as personagens e o texto literário podem dar à ciência...

‣ Literature, Interculture and teaching education – a between-place to be visited; Literatura, intercultura e formação docente – um entre-lugar a ser visitado

In this essay I bring to reflection some questions concerning the literature as a teaching education territory. The literature saw not just as a technique, but also as a territory of production of knowledge (BARCELOS, 2001). The literature saw as a between-place (BHABHA, 2003) of symbolical and intercultural exchanges. How the relations between the literature and the education in general, and in private, as teaching education are established? How can the literature contribute to the construction of the knowledge in education in general and, in private, to the teaching education taking in account the production of the professor being? It is to designate this role of the literature that we refer to it as something similiar to what Bhabha denominates of a between-place of happening(s). In the case of the education professional, it would be a between-place of teaching education. We defend in this text that this plot that is created around the reader/text/office/ society is more a between-place of teaching education. And this between-place may need to be visited by plenty. In other way, to those that already visited or are visiting it, it is necessary to recall what the Mexican poet and essayist Ocatvio Paz teaches, to whom, the books are as cities made of letters...

FRENCH VERSION (LANGUAGE OF THE DISSERTATION) Cette thèse doctorale vise à définir les aspects sous lesquels le récit peut saisir un espace afin de le représenter aux lecteurs. Pour ce faire, nous avons choisi une approche poétique, laquelle est soutenue par des études théoriques et critiques contemporaines tirées, notamment, des champs de la phénoménologie, de l’anthropologie, de la géographie, de la géocritique et de la théorie théâtrale. Notre recherche nous aura permis de dresser une typologie générale composée de cinq modes de représentation : les aspects géométrique (qui aborde un espace selon ses mesures, formes et proportions), localisé (qui capte son passage vers les caractéristiques stables du lieu), allégorique (consacré à son développement parallèle à un autre objet), dynamique (d’un espace qui entre en relation directe avec un personnage) et technique (où il est médié par un savoir spécialisé). Chaque chapitre s’ouvre sur un état présent des recherches essentielles à l’établissement de notre aspect, offre une définition détaillée de celui-ci, puis explore les facettes de notre définition au moyen d’études de cas. Ces études sont basées sur un corpus littéraire ouvert...

‣ Anthropomorphic Attachments in U.S. Literature, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence

"Anthropomorphic Attachments" undertakes an examination of the human as a highly nebulous, fluid, multiple, and often contradictory concept, one that cannot be approached directly or in isolation, but only in its constitutive relationality with the world. Rather than trying to find a way outside of the dualism between human and not-human, I take up the concept of anthropomorphization as a way to hypersaturate the question of the human. Within this hypersaturated field of inquiry, I focus on the specific anthropomorphic relationalities between human and humanoid technology. Focusing primarily on contemporary U.S. technologies and cultural forms, my dissertation looks at artificial intelligence and robotics in conversation with their cultural imaginaries in contemporary literature, science fiction, film, performance art, and video games, and in conversation with contemporary philosophies of the human, the posthuman, and technology. In reading these discourses as shaping, informing, and amplifying each other and the multiple conceptions of the human they articulate, "Anthropomorphic Attachments" attends to these multiple humans and the multiple morphologies by which anthropomorphic relationalities imagine and inscribe both humanoid technologies and the human itself.

Focusing on a diverse set of creative work from Europe, East and South Asia, the Americas, Middle East, and Africa, Minor Measures investigates modalities of world writing through modernist, postcolonial and contemporary transnational literatures in the intertwined moments of imperialism, developmentalism and globalism. It studies the category of world literature as a heterogeneous set of narrative-cognitive forms and comparative modes of gauging from a particular positionality the world-systemic pressures on individual and collective bodies. To this end, Minor Measures focuses on the dynamic and increasingly central role of geoliterary imagination in fashioning a secular hermeneutic that maps the relationships and overlaps between the local and the global, here and there, past and present, self and other. Moreover, it highlights the capacities of the literary aesthetics in configuring local subjectivities, affiliations and histories in relation to the abstract cartographic totality of global modernity. Shuttling back and forth between the two poles, literature as world writing refers to the unconscious framework of representing the contingencies of the lived experience of economically, racially, and geographically differentiated subjects from metropolitan...

Our task was threefold: (1) to examine what is and is not known about evacuation in peacetime disaster situations; (2) to systematically order and organize the literature and other research data; and, (3) to make recommendations from our findings and observations. About 150 literature sources and other newly gathered as well as previously gathered research data were examined. An analytical model of evacuation behavior was developed positing a relationship between community context, threat conditions, social processes, patterns of behavior including the withdrawal movement, and consequences for community preparedness for evacuation. Policy, planning, operational and research implications were derived suggesting future actions and efforts. Our study did find that we do currently have some research-based knowledge and understanding about evacuation phenomena in disasters. The literature and research data give us a comprehension beyond common sense notions, and in fact, at times, the evidence suggests that citizens in general and officials in particular may be working with incorrect assumptions and beliefs about the phenomena. On this topic, as is true of many other matters about disaster behavior, mythologies and misconceptions about evacuation abound. For example...

The General Health Questionnaire-12 is a widely used screening instrument for detecting psychological strain in the general population. A literature search of the PsycInfo database extracted 167 studies that used the GHQ-12 since 1990. The literature investigating the factor structure of the GHQ-12 has relied primarily on conventional factor analysis methods, the results of which are inconclusive. There is evidence in the literature supporting unidimensional, two-factor and three-factor conceptualizations of the GHQ-12. In the present paper we assess the adequacy of the factor structure of the GHQ-12 for one-factor, two-factor and three-factor solutions, using structural equations modelling and a longitudinal dataset drawn from 23 large New Zealand organizations. The results favour a two-factor model consisting of a 'Social Dysfunction' factor and an 'Anxiety/Depression' factor measured by four items each. Concurrent validity of the two factors was assessed separately through correlations with five criterion variables, and all correlations were in the expected direction. Theoretical implications for research using the GHQ-12 are discussed.

"Afghanistan in Ink: Literature Between Diaspora and Nation." Nile Green and Nushin Arbabzadah. C Hurst & Co Publishers. February 2013. --- Afghanistan In Ink uses a wide and largely unknown corpus of twentieth century Afghan Dari and Pashto literature to show not only how Afghans have reflected on their modern history, but also how the state has repeatedly sought to dominate the ideological contours of that history through the patronage or exile of writers. Emily Coolidge-Toker is extremely impressed with the essays collected here, and recommends the book to students of culture, politics, and linguistics.
