Project: SUBJECTIVITY, IDENTITY AND DISCOURSE: THE DISCOURSE CREATION OF WORKERS IN LITERATURE BASED ON THE DIALOGIC DISCOURSE ANALYSIS

Description: This project is linked to the Research Group “Discourses about work, technology and identity”, inserted in the Program of Post-Graduation in Literary Theory of Uniandrade, area of Literature.

The project analyzes how the universe of work, important human dimension, is recreated by literary discourse in several texts (novels, chronicles, short-stories, poems). Several milenar discourses about the world of work have already been produced. Since Greek Antiquity, passing through the Bible until our days, thousands of literary voices, from the everyday world, from the newspapers, from Law, from the field of Economy, History and Sociology were built in order to reflect and organize men’s and women’s laboral activities. In the analysis of the area of Literature this theme has only been recently discussed by some national groups of investigation. Therefore, it is possible to verify, in the literary context, how writers see the extraliterary universe of work and how they make it migrate to the interior of the fictional world, representing it in several manners. This representation occurs from many angles in which varied ideologies linked to the writers may emerge. We also seek to analyze how the subjectivity of the workers represented by the characters are formed in the texts studied, printing a certain particularized and generic identity for the worker. As a theoretical basis, we will use the works by Mikhail Bakhtin and the Russian Circle, dealing more specifically with dialogism, carnavalization, relations of the author with the characters and constitution of subjectivity applied to the Dialogical Discourse Analysis. In this dialogue, we will talk to Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, George Lukács, Paul Lafargue, Robert Kurz, André Gorz, whose works are important sources of knowledge about human laboral activity. Nowadays, the research aggregates analysis of journalistic discourses about work and literary works about this theme. The writers studied are Maria Firmina dos Reis, Pagu, Roniwalter Jatobá and Maya Angelou.

Project 1: FROM DRAMA TO POST-DRAMA: SCENIC AND DRAMATIC LANGUAGES IN REVIEW

Description: The project aims to study the subversion of traditional protocols based on Aristotle and Hegel in texts of theater and scene to promote a wide debate about the development of new themes, languages and aesthetical propositions in the field of scenic arts, from drama to post-drama, having as a basis literary, artistic, philosophical and cultural perspectives of critics from contemporaneity like Peter Szondi, Patrice Pavis, Hans-Thies Lehmann, Jean-Pierre Sarrazac, Josette Féral, Marvin Carlson, Anne Ubersfeld, Sílvia Fernandes, Ingrid D. Koudela, Luiz Fernando Ramos, among others. The project still seeks to approach topics related with identity matters and with the change in the status of the theater characters, including the crisis of the subject and the new conception of subjectivity from the second part of 19th century; the character as a process and a product of social relationships; the deconstruction or fragmentation of individualized character; the character tailored, or a human figure made into pieces; the allegorical character built from a choral dimension with features that are characteristic of a social category; the condensation of human features; the impossibility of the biographical return of oneself; the character’s depersonalization or disfigurement and the questioning of the possibility of identity existence on its own. The project is linked with the disciplines “Theories of the Theater” and “Poetics of Contemporary Scene”.

Project 2: MEDIUM(META)MORPHOSIS: RELATIONS BETWEEN LITERATURE AND OTHER ARTS AND MEDIA

Description: The project seeks to study the relationships between the literary text and other arts and media, such as theater, movies, television, painting, graphic novels and photography in several cultural, historical amd geographical contexts. Based on the theoretical contemporary perspectives of Claus Clüver, Linda Hutcheon, Gérard Genette, Irina Rajewsky, Liliane Louvel, Henry Jenkins, Robert Stam, Randal Johnson, Ismail Xavier, Júlio Plaza, Haroldo de Campos, Patrice Pavis, Peter Burke and Silviano Santigo, the (inter)textual, (inter)midiatic and (inter)cultural practices which conduct to new modes of perception and generate new senses will be investigated, including rewritings, novelizations, ecphrasis, visual poetry, Sound Art; the adaptation as historic, cultural and intermidiatic; the midiatic transposition or intersemiotic translation; the combination of several media in mixmedium, multimedia and intermedia; the intermidiatic references; the crossing of borders and transmidiality; the remediation and its importance in the creation of new media and digital media; and the interfaces and hibridizations between two or more media. The project is linked to the discipline “Poetics of Recycling”.

Participants: Fátima Maria Ortiz Lour (master's student); Silvandra Mara Henrique Rodrigues (undergraduate).

Project 1: MIDIATIC TRANSPOSITIONS AND/OR INTERMIDIATIC REREADINGS

Description: This project aims to work with the midiatic transpositions and rereadings of literary texts. The notion of “text” is used to signify any creative work or rereading, any artistic manifestation in the art or media. Considering, however, that Literature and Intermidiality is one of the lines of research of the program of Literary Theory, the literary perspective will always have priority over other objectives; literature will always have priority over other artistic expressions. This umbrella project intends to encompass several unfoldings that will be developed throughout the years, and that will result in publications. The majority of them will deal with novels and filmic adaptations, including theater plays and its adaptations and adaptations of television series, among others, and will have, as a theoretical basis, the concepts of Gérard Genette (narrative structures), Jacques Aumont (aesthetics of film), Brian McFarlane (novel for cinema), Robert Stam (theory of cinema), Claus Clüver (intermidiality), Irina Rajewsky (intermidiality, intertextuality and remediation), among others.

Participants: Brunilda Reichmann (professor), Francis Raime Zagury Matos e Claudia Regina Camargo (master's students); Amanda Cilião; Felipe Eduardo Alves da Silva; Helena Bittencourt e Thais dos Santos Pires (undergraduate students).

Project 2: MULTIPLE NARRATIVE READINGS

Description: This project is related to the line of research Poetics of Contemporary Literary Productions and to the discipline Theories of Narrative and Theory and Literary Studies. The main objective of this project is to demonstrate how literary texts – short-stories, novels and novellas – may be critically read with many different angles. The participants of this project will give their attention to several texts and, based on a detailed reading, will see which critical approaches of 19th and 20th centuries, studied in the mentioned disciplines, will be more suitable for analyzing a narrative. Based on this, they will demonstrate that the text arouses multiple critical looks or multiple readings. The critical approaches the project will work with are: genetic criticism (Salles, Grésillon), aesthetics of reception (Iser and Jauss), deconstructionism (Derrida, Culler), psychoanalytical criticism (Freud, Jung, Lacan), gender studies (Butler, Holanda), queer theory (Foucault, Sedfwick, Butler, Rich), new historicism (Gallager and Greenblat), among others.

Project: INTERARTS STUDIES: TEXT, STAGE AND SCREEN (PHASE 2)

Description: the project INTERARTS STUDIES: TEXT, STAGE AND SCREEN (PHASE 2) is a proposal which predicts, on the one hand, the inclusion of the students who are under my supervision in the Master’s and the Doctorate’s courses, and whose research is perfectly integrated in the lines of research “Literature and other languages” and “Intermidiatic Studies”. On the other hand, as the title itself announces, the project is constituted by subprojects which dialogue with aesthetical contemporary tendencies in the context of the visual, theatrical and literary arts. The dialogic relationships between texts cross a variety of media, challenge the encounter with a better way of studying them in order to unravel the conceptual implications on which they are sustained.

Project: DIARY, CHRONICLES, BLOG AND OTHER SHORT WRITING OF THE SELF AS A CONSTRUCTION OF IDENTITY AND AESTHETICAL PROCEDURES

Description: If, in principle, Philippe Lejeune's concept of autobiography referred to a textual genre with a proper crystallized form, over time it has extended the concept to all the modalities of writing itself, in which a I have yourself as an object. Thus, autobiographical genres such as the diary, the letter, the chronicle, the essay and even those modern, digital forms, which have not yet been categorized, such as blogs, have become. This broadening of the concept certainly fits into the phenomenon of "subjective turning" as defined by Beatriz Sarlo, or what has been called "autobiographization", the growth of the production of texts with autobiographical intent, a tendency to accept the writings of itself not only as a legitimate attitude, but also as a possibility for elaborations that go beyond documentary and gain value as literary art. Thus, these manifestations that pursue an intentionality as a work of art must be carefully investigated by literary theory. The aim of the present project is to investigate these possibilities of writing oneself as literature. In the same way, it is to observe the way in which these writings of themselves, through their inner gaze, are seen by those who produce them as a form of constitution and understanding of subjectivity, a problematic concept of postmodern culture. The concept of subject, therefore, becomes one of the project's focus of attention, observed in such genres.

Project 1: INTERTEXTUALITY AND CONFLUENCE IN MACHADO DE ASSIS’S WORKS

Description: The project aims to analyze the relations of intertextuality and confluence established between Machadian works and the works from Brazilian, Portuguese, Latin-American, North-American and English literatures. Even though these relationships had already been extensively explore by literary criticism, as it is possible to notice in the analysis of José Luiz Passos, Gilberto Pinheiro Passos and Marta de Senna, many aspects still need to be analyzed, such as the relationships between Machado’s texts and North-American writers, including Henry James and Edgar Allan Poe. The concepts of parody and emulation formulated, respectively, by Linda Hutcheon and João Cezar de Castro Rocha are important for the comprehension of the ways in which Machado establishes a dialogue with other texts, a dialogue which reflects, in its last instance, the geometry of literary power in non-hegemonic contexts. In this sense, the reflections of Pascale Casanova, Silviano Santiago and Boaventura de Sousa Santos, among others, will offer a relevant contribution for the survey of the aspects related to intertextuality and confluence in Machado de Assis’s works, aspects which are intimately related to political matters present in contexts characterized by what Antonio Candido called “dialetics of the local and the cosmopolitan”, materialized in the oscillation between imitating foreign models and seek for a literary identity of its own.

Project 2: THE CHRONICLES OF MACHADO DE ASSIS: THE MAN IN HIS TIME AND IN HIS PLACE

beginning of his literary career, up to 1890, in which he writes the magnificent series entitled A semana. In the chronicles, it is possible to see Machado’s critical view of social, political and historical facts in his time, which are completely materialized in formal and style resources. Based on what Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht and João Cezar de Castro Rocha (2019) call gelassenheit, translated into Portuguese as “serenidade”, we will make a structual mapping of Machado’s critical discourse in relation to the problems observed in his time, a discourse which covers the chronicles with a zeitgeist that, until nowadays, remains almost unexplored by Machadian critics.

Participants: Johnes Tadeu Gomes (UNIANDRADE); Beatriz Pires Pacheco and Simone Aparecida Rodrigues (undergraduate students from the Letras course at UNIANDRADE); Rex Nielson (professor at Brigham Young University) and James Remington Krause (professor at Brigham Young University).

Project 1: THE REFERENTIAL STATUS OF THE NARRATIVES OF THE SELF: INQUIRIES AND REFLECTIONS

Description: The distinction between fictional and non-fictional becomes even more problematic nowadays, following the avalanche of confessional literature written by academics, scientists, or people who transitorily occupied the focus of public attention. At the same time, social networks followed this tendency, offering an accessible vehicle for the human being’s insatiable impulse for narrative identification. The critical analysis about autobiographical writing grows in the same rhythm, including since the inquiries regarding authenticity until analytical studies about the role of the imagination in these narratives. This project continues others that were previously developed by us about the same theme, and that had thesis, articles and communications as a result, besides stimulating subsequent researches, with the central objective of developing studies about the poetics of life narratives. The main references are the works of Phillipe Lejeune, James Olney, Paul John Eakin, Leigh Gilmore and others, according to the particularities of the researches developed by undergraduate and graduate, regular and special students. For the indispensable study of the mechanisms of memory in the reconstitution of the past, we will use, as a theoretical basis, the concepts of Maurice Halbwachs. In the process of rememoration, the autobiographical narrative inevitably conducts to sel-analysis and, as a corollary, to matters of identity. The researches about the narratives of the “self” as a form of self-assertion, identification and rights claim are a consequence of this. Another aspect to be researched is the autobiographical hallmark of works of canonical writers and the autobiographical projects that underlie the works of contemporary writers. The paradox of literary autobiography, its essential double game, as Phillipe Lejeune indicates, is to pretend to be, at the same time, a true discourse and a work of art. At this particular point, this project includes the specific study of the concepts of autofiction, in order to research theoretical sources as well as literary production about the theme directed to the discipline “Writings of the Self – Autofiction”, recently introduced in our curriculum.

Project 2: INTERMIDIALITY AND INTERMEDIAL REFERENCES IN LITERARY STUDIES

Description: the wide title translates the aims of the project: to encompass different academic subprojects in the Letras courses (undergraduate) and the Master’s Course in Literary Theory dedicated to the research of the relationships between literature and other media. As part of the work of the group Intermedia, which deals with the relationships between writing, image and sound since 2005 in UFMG, this project develops studies of the concepts of intermidiality, in the theoretical line of Claus Clüver and Irina Rajewsky, in both the wide sense of the generic term for phenomena which occur between different media, and the restrict sense of transposition and midiatic combination, or the intermidiatical references. As a theoretical basis, we include the contemporary studies of Linda Hutcheon, Gérard Genette, Robert Stam, Randal Johnson, Ismail Xavier and Bolter & Grusin.

Project 1: LITERATURE AND BIOGRAPHICAL SPACE

Description: This project’s intention is to continue a research process as well as the further development of the doctoral dissertation defended at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, in 2014, and the post-doctoral research at the Universidade do Minho, in Portugal. The biographical space (ARFUCH, 2008), expressed in literary and artistic works, involves configurations of social networks proposed by Norbert Elias (1993) as aspects of internalizations of civilizatory schemes denominated as habitus. Having solitude as a common thread, Norbert Elias enables the approximation between the writings of the self, the biographical and the autobiographical spaces visible in the historic relations in which the habitus changes and so does the individuals. The plot of social web expressed in the formulation of biographical and autobiographical spaces included in the changes between private and public spaces in the architecture of the houses reflects that reading, intimacy and solitude compose an expressive biographical and imagetical internalization in the simbolic construction of the spaces that intertwine between literature, philosophy, and the individuals. It is interesting, for this study, above all, literary works inserted in the wide concept of Biographical Space, as well as Brazilian and Latin-American contemporary writers that are part of this context, among them Mário Levrero, César Aira, Ricardo Lísias and Felipe Charbel.

Project 2: REINVENTING THE WORLD: THE CREATION OF SHORT FORMS

Descrição: A Hora da Estrela, de Clarice Lispector, é um exemplo contundente no qual se interelacionam dimensões estéticas, filosóficas e literárias. Nessa pequena novela, a estória de Macabéa inova na linguagem centrada no próprio ato da pergunta, da dúvida. Ao invés da certeza do cógito, o narrador se coloca diante da incerteza de tudo, das relações sociais, do valor da própria escrita na sociedade capitalista. A morte e a vida são uma das condições inexoráveis próprias da humanidade. A obra pode ser compreendida como uma metáfora do conhecimento e do próprio ato de escrever como incompletude. Como a epígrafe aponta, “a palavra é fruto da palavra”. Mas a palavra delineia histórias, narrativas, fatos, ou aparência de fatos, assim epistemologicamente os espaços de fala. Pretendo, nesse projeto, assim como os narradores de Clarice, realizar exercícios de criação literária que surjam da incompletude e do espanto diante do vazio do mundo hodierno. O objetivo maior é a criação de formas breves, para dizer com Ricardo Piglia, textos quase sempre fronteiriços, que expressem de algum modo a fluidez e a aceleração contemporânea: contos, crônicas, prosa poética, trechos de diários íntimos ou pequenos aforismos.

Project: THEORY OF NARRATIVE AND CREATIVE WRITING

Description: In light of the narratology defended by Roland Barthes, Gérard Genette, Paul Ricoeur, Umberto Eco and Yves Reuters, we intend to examine the procedures and the constitutive elements of the narrative, from focalization to the relation between the time of the narrated events and the time of the narrating process, passing through the anacronies (analepsis and prolepsis) and the other elements of the narrative text. Based on that, our target is to exercise the most diverse narrative modes. GENERAL OBJECTIVE: study, analyze and exercise the main elements of the narrative. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: a) have a general view of the internal operation of the literary “machine”; b) update the knowledge related to narratology and articulate them with the other areas of literary studies; c) based on these studies, produce narrative texts in which these elements are experimented; d) relate the modes of representation and the represented modes, using the theoretical approaches of Bakhtin, Walter Benjamin, Lukács and Franco Moretti.

Projeto 2: ESCRITA CRIATIVA E CONTEMPORANEIDADE

Description: This research project is centered on the discussion of aesthetical and discourse foundations which are present in the fictional texts produced in recent decades in both Brazil and foreign countries. The approaches of research are extended to the field of adaptations of novels and short-stories for the audiovisual media and graphic narratives. Besides, literary creation is analyzed based on its relations with the recent midiatic phenomena, as well as its dialogical relations with the extraliterary texts, which can be verified in the processes of graft and mixture of statements in contemporary fictional narratives. The studies regarding fictional architecture enable a deeper comprehension of the relationships between form and contente, creation and language.

Project: LITERATURE IN THE BORDERS

Description: This research project is centered around the study of cultural studies in its intersections between gender, race and ethnicity, in the comprehension of the reflection of the literary works produced in the African continent, with an emphasis on Moçambique, in South America and the Caribbean in a decolonial perspective. The idea is to think about the literature of representation and with representativity in cosmogonies founded in the autonomy of identities and subjectvities related with politics and its significants, when making visible the voices and individuals in the space of literature in its relation with various social segments and the intersections of genders, races and ethnicities both in literature for children and the big literary area. In this sense, writing designates the result of experiences that reflect an ancestral rescue in the perspective of Achille Mbembe, Aimé Cesaire, bell hooks, among others, and finds in the afrodiasporic perspective a place of origin in memorialistic, diaristic and collective spaces. Thus, literature is not only a space of identity affirmation, but inauguration of a story told with another perspective, breaking counter-hegemonic models by images-words in the process of recognizing the literature with black characters, written by black writers according to theories and studies in Brazil that see it as a central and not borderline process. Thus, the rupture of models and discourses of resistance inaugurates a reflection that (re)ssignifies and dislocates frontiers from the borders to the center.

Project: FOREIGN LITERATURES IN DISCUSSION: CRITICAL CHALLENGES

Description: The theme of study for the next period of two years, entitiled “Foreign literatures in discussion: critical challenges”, has, from the start, these basic objectives: interrogate the notion of “foreign literature” nowadays, reflect about the critical challenges that follow this designation, as well as the demand for a necessity of rethinking the condition of the “foreign” and its multiple reverberations nowadays, and, besides, question the relations between literature and nation; literature and language; literature and territory; literature and native country; literature and (de) colonizing processes; literature and translation; as well as the process of teaching a foreign literature.

Line of research: LITERATURE AND INTERMIDIALITY

Project: ARTS, MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGIES

Descrição: O projeto trabalha com o conceito de mídia em dois sentidos distintos: a) veículo de comunicação; b) tipo de arte. Desse modo, articulam-se os conceitos de interartes e intermidialidade (ELLESTRÖM, 2017; MÜLLER, 2012; SCHRÖTER, 2012). Nas análises que integram o trabalho, a literatura tem espaço privilegiado. Dessa forma, interessam as conexões do texto literário com outros tipos de textos, seja no processo de composição (obras híbridas — que utilizam signos verbais e não-verbais — e obras intertextuais) ou de adaptação (fílmica, teatral, pictural, etc.). No que se refere à tecnologia, objetiva-se identificar e avaliar as mudanças que ela possibilita na produção, na recepção e na divulgação do texto literário (LÉVY, 2010), com ênfase à literatura digital (BEIGUELMAN, 2003; SANTAELLA, 2003). Essa comparação, por sua vez, possibilita que a mídia literária seja analisada em seus formatos tradicional (livro impresso) e contemporâneo (e-books e textos on-line). Do mesmo modo, as demais mídias e artes serão avaliadas, a partir da confrontação dos formatos atual e anterior, diferenciados amplamente, pelo uso dos recursos tecnológicos (BOLTER; GRUSIN, 2000).
