    Performatyzm albo koniec postmodernizmu (American Beauty)
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Eshelman, Raoul
    The presented text is a translation of the first chapter of Eshelman’s book Performatism, or the End of Postmodernism (2008). Its main thesis is based on the assumption that along with the exhaustion of postmodernism a new aesthetic paradigm emerges, namely – performatism. Deriving his project from a new notion of sign (grounded on the anthropological theory of ostensivity by Eric Gans) and the description of a crucial aesthetic device called ‘double framing’, Eshelman tracks down symptoms of the epochal change in literary and visual works as well as in movies and architecture. The text also lays foundation for new monist concepts of subjectivity, time and history.

    Po co czytać literaturę?
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Miller, Joseph Hillis
    The essay in question is the translation of the fourth chapter of J. Hillis Miller’s book, On literature (2002), in which he circles around questions elemental yet convoluted for literary criticism. Miller reminds us about (as ancient as archetypal) dilemmas concerning the role of literature in society (e.g. Plato’s putdown of poetry and Aristotle’s defense of it) and discloses contemporary judgments covertly rooted in them. The fundamental issue is why Western culture has granted literature such great authority. His argument reposes on an assumption that literary works give us access to virtual realities that are not otherwise knowable.

    O Polsce i o Polakach w pozaantologijnych pismach osobistych cudzoziemców XVIII i XIX wieku
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Lubas-Bartoszyńska, Regina
    This text presents some autobiographical writings of foreigners, which concern Poland of 18th and 19th century with the exception of those treated in J. Gintel’s anthology. This is no problem of systematic information concerning Poland’s reality in these centuries which are to be found in commentaries and treaties. We are discussing foreign diaries, memoires and autobiographies of the following authors: G.G. Casanova, Ch.J. de Ligne, J. Michelet, V. Hugo, R. de Chateaubriand, G. Sand, E. and J. de Goncourts. These autobiographical enunciations are treated here as the credible source of information. These personal texts are destined for Polish readers, who feel specific pleasure finding some mentions concerning Poland. The readers encounter Poles as historical persons, artists, writers in the background of historical events, in travel, social and everyday life.

    Peiper w Madrycie, czyli hiszpański topos
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Kluba, BAgnieszka
    The pope of Polish avant-garde is a main character of a certain persistently recollected critical topos. It claims that, after spending World War I in Europe, Tadeusz Peiper took a basic shape of his poetical idea from avant-garde artists he then met. Critics who share this opinion believe that Peiper, aware of these “borrowings”, was developing a carefully planned strategy in order to conceal those external sources and to pretend originality. The author of the article disavows these harmful assumptions, reconstructing their possible genesis (rooted in and continued prewar suspicions of plagiarism) and analyzing some of their critical versions. In the same time she presents wider and not only avant-garde background of Peiper’s idea (baroque, gongorism).

    Muzyczny styl odbioru – muzyczny interpretant – literacka forma muzyczna
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Reimann, Aleksandra
    The paper is concerned with reception strategies where interdisciplinary competencies are connected to musical expectations towards a text, which – i.a. because of metatextual suggestions – needs a musical explanation – “musical supplement”. The objective of the article is the musical and literary dialog, which belongs to intermediality (definition by W. Wolf), and intertextuality in the large sense as well. Although the penetration of musical and literary correspondence does not threaten “scientist hysteria”, it also does not promise fruitful strategies and satisfactory conclusions. The paper includes terminological proposals which are an attempt at universal, semiotic transposition into musical and literary borderland, which in the practice of interpretation has too eclectic, and mostly one-time solutions.

    Estetyka, erotyka i parytet płciowy: Historia piękna i Historia brzydoty pod redakcją Umberta Eco
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Obremski, Krzysztof
    The topic of comparative analysis which is presented in this article is The Story of Beauty and The Story of Ugliness edited by Umberto Eco. Even the covers of these books show the contrast between men and women. How esthetic values build a feedback with sexual parity? Ugly men look at beautiful women – this patriarchal discrimination can’t be cancelled either by the parity of sex in The Story of Beauty, nor men who twice outnumber them in The Story of Ugliness. Also as the unfair sex they are prior sex: they humiliate themselves and elevate women

    Przyroda(i)kultura w epoce antropocenu
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Gajewska, Grażyna
    The article deals with a New Understanding of nature and culture, which is being crystallized in the intellectual current defined by the name of post-humanities. The starting point for the analysis of work of art from the area of bioart – transgenic plant named Edunia, which is a part of a larger project Natural History of the Enigma. Edunia, which does not occur in nature but was created by the artist Eduardo Kac by means of specialists in the field of genetic engineering. A new form of life defined as plantimal shows a DNA expression of the artist included into decorative flowers of petunia. Rose petals of flowers are “interspersed” by dark red vessels the feature of which is the expression of Kac’s gene; this because the artist took care of that that his DNA was found just in the venation of the flower. In the article I present two interpretation paths of this work of bioart which, however, are not a sharp counterpoint to one another, but somewhat differently place accents between nature and culture in their mutual entanglements. One of these paths may be defined as an attempt at making others realise or reminding them about our evolutional species condition, while the other one as an attempt at treating nature as an important actor of the sociopolitical activities.

    „Cinemagraphs” Jamie Beck w kontekście dramatycznej teorii literatury
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Woźniak, Ewelina
    The purpose of this article is to present works of a New York photographer Jamie Beck, who developed a new type of moving photography – cinemagraphs, and look at her work from the perspective of the dramatic theory of literature. Jamie Beck in her works redefines many notions related to the visual realm. Movement and time relationship, the model identity and the impact of material on the image perception are the most interesting problems, that are connected with cinemagraphs. All these issues are analyzed in relation to fields dealing with image: André Rouille’s and Roland Barthes’ photographic theories, art history represented by Georges Didi- Huberman and Rudolf Arnheim’s “the psychology of creative eye”.

    Rozbrajając Walczące słowa Judith Butler
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Stopel, Bartosz
    The aim of this essay is to attempt to engage in polemics with the theory of hate speech endorsed by Judith Butler in her book Excitable Speech. The text will try to show that the Butlerian strategy of textualization of hate speech. If it is understood as a main tool of fighting with injurious speech, fails and, in fact, hinders this fight. The argument will touch both upon the theory and its practical application. On the theoretical level, the deconstruction of J.L. Austin’s speech acts by Butler, along with a similar, earlier treatment of Austin by Derrida, will be criticized. In terms of practice, it will be attempted to view some of the recent, controversial events concerning hate speech through the lens of Butler’s theory, and to show the inadequacies of treating her theory as an effective tool of fighting injurious utterances

    Zwrot performatywny w teatrze postdramatycznym
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Grzymisławski, Piotr
    In this article I try to identify changes that occur in the communication process in the theatre, which I call acceptance process. The core of perception in dramatic theatre up to now was the denial (term proposed by Anne Ubersfeld), which allows to participate in theatrical work. In theatre which leaves dramatic form, so-called postdramatic theatre, there is an acceptance process. This new situation in the theatre, by turning towards enforcing performative functions in the communication theatre, leads to changes in the relationship between stage and audience, their mutual temporary and spatial arrangement. In the contemporary art, not only in theatre, Auditorium turns into an Autorium – watching works becomes literally a creative activity, within which there are as many performances as many persons participating in an event – or as many images in each of performative entity’s mind.

    Teoria literatury doby „zwrotów”: o jubileuszowej ankiecie „Tekstów Drugich”
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Bohuszewicz, Paweł
    After 20 years of appearance in print of “Teksty Drugie” magazine, its chief editor, Ryszard Nycz, has prepared some general questions and refers them to the closest collaborators. Many of them are poststructuralistic, but not only: the text of Ewa Domańska consists of the project of return of natural sciences into the core of humanities, and Danuta Ulicka’s text The Archival Turn (As I See It) announces the necessity of a turn to philology – not its 16th or 19th century versions, but postmodern philology.

    „Zwrot dramatyczny” a literaturoznawstwo performatywne
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM w Poznaniu, 2012) Krajewska, Anna
    This article presents performance studies as a proposal that would follow the era of disciplinarity. The author proposes to view the phenomenon from the perspective of the changes and transformations from the aesthetics of reception to performance studies, and introduces the category of the literary interlocking to define the performative functioning of text. The author then proceeds to interpret the relationships between the “dramatic turn” that has reoriented and restructured modern thought on reality and art, and the notions of anti-binarity and performativeness. Finally, the author makes an argument that the performative turn has profoundly and significantly transformed the humanities in its entirety. The performative breakthrough has ideological nature that is related to the foundations of understanding the substance of dramaticality.
