Ciclo di eventi “Conosci la Bulgaria?” 2017

Martedì 4 aprile

Is Bulgarian an exotic language?

When thinking for a new language to learn, we normally would base the choice on the previous language knowledge and language competence we have. English, German, French, Spanish, Italian are among the foreign languages most often chosen by the students at different levels. From this ‘statistically-based’ point of view Bulgarian is rare and hence could be seen as an exotic one. The main goal of this lecture is to make a brief overview of some grammar features specific for Bulgarian such as definiteness and system of past tenses. Word order and dislocations also will be discussed. Considering that Indo-European languages have number of common morpho-syntactic features expressed by different structures or grammatical markers, Bulgarian may be called not ‘exotic’, but ‘lesser-known’.

The East in West European Art

The paper traces the durable presence of the East (especially of the „Turkish“ theme) in West European art (literature, opera, theatre, painting) and discusses the tendencies evident in the interpretation of the image of the „barbarian“ from the Middle Ages until the 19th c. It offers an analysis of the factors which participate in the dynamic appearance of „Turkish plots and characters“ and how they construct the philosophical and political ideas regarding slavery and freedom, fanaticism and tolerance, and political order, as well as the concepts of „native“ and „foreign“, „civilized“ and „barbarian“, „European“ and „Asian“. The presentation charters the significant transformations in rendering the „Turkish theme“ during the Age of Enlightenment, more specifically, in terms of how the art of painting consolidates the views of Europeans from Western Europe about the Orient, and of how Turkish fashion enters interiors, dress codes and everyday life.
