        Subject: space in literature and literature in space

Dear colleagues, national philologies communicate predominantly in
national languages and are thus limited to those who speak the
language, in case of minor cultures limited only to the members of the
national community. Wishing to get a broader echo, Slavistična revija,
Slovene journal for linguistics and literary studies (all the volumes
of the journal since 1948 are freely available through the journal's
web archive http://www.srl.si/) has published its special issue
entitled Space in Literature and Literature in Space--SRL 60/3
(2012)--as a bilingual (Slovene-English) edition, edited by Urška
Perenič. Current issue contents:

Space in Slovene Literary Studies: Critical Editions of the Classics
At the Juncture of Literature and Geography: Literature as a Subject
of Geographic Inquiry in the Case of Slovene Istria
The Network of Memorials of Slovene Literary Culture as Semiotic
Appropriation of (National) Space
The Reading Societies Network and Socio-Geographic Dynamics
The Capital and Centers of Slovene Literature
Space and its Geographical Presentation in Slovene Historical Narrative
[...]
The reviews of the books are available in Slovene only: on the spatial
turn in narratology, on Barbara Piatti: Die Geographie der Literatur,
Barney Warf and Santa Arias (eds.): The Spatial Turn:
Interdisciplinary Perspectives, David Bodenhamer, John Corrigan, and
Trevor Harris (eds.): The Spatial Humanities: GIS and the Future of
Humanities Scholarship, and a report of Erfurt 2012 workshop Mapping
Spatial Relations, their Perceptions and Dynamics.

The majority of the articles in the issue was generated by the project
The Space of Slovene Literary Culture: Literary History and Spatial
Analysis using the Geographic Information System
(http://sl.wikiversity.org/wiki/Literatura_in_prostor). -- miran
