Ciclo di eventi “Conosci la Bulgaria?” 2017

Venerdì 7 aprile

 

The Cultural and Historical Heritage of Sofia

After the end of World War II, the task to build the new centre of the capital city of Sofia was formulated at the level of the state and of the Bulgarian Communist Party (BCP) leadership. The overall socialist reconstruction of the city’s centre started in 1951. The new principal buildings that were to be the symbols of the new state and of the new regime were to be erected at the place of the buildings destroyed by the bomb raids. While working on the urban planning ensemble of the Largo, the builders came across many ruins of the ancient city of Serdica. Unfortunately, the deadlines were too short and the opportunities for archaeological exploration – minimal…

LOSTOVA Sofia graduated with Master's degree in Architecture in VSU "Lyuben Karavelov", Sofia in 2012. In 2016, she graduated from Master's program of Preservation of architectural heritage. Since then she has been working as a Chief Expert at the Regional History Museum – Sofia (Department “Preservation of Architectural heritage”). In 2016 she participated in the creation of the exhibition “ATRIUM – Architecture of the Totalitarian Regimes in the 20th Century”. A year later, Lostova started a PhD degree in the theory and history of architecture and is currently working on a thesis  entitled “Establishment and visual aspects - the new architectural appearance of Bulgarian cities during the period 1945 – 1961”. She has participated in many architectural competitions relating to the conservation and preservation of architectural heritage.

La conferenza sarà tenuta in bulgaro. Sarà fornito servizio di interpretazione consecutiva a cura degli studenti interpreti.

 

L'idea della Bulgaria e dei Bulgari in Italia

La domanda “Conosci la Bulgaria?” presuppone che si debbano dare delle risposte a riguardo, ponendo interrogativi non sempre di facile soluzione. Che cosa si sa, ma anche che cosa si sapeva nell’ Italia dei secoli passati, dei Bulgari, della Bulgaria e della loro storia? Che cosa sapevano della Bulgaria i nostri studenti di lingua prima che iniziassero il loro percorso accademico? È cambiato qualcosa e in quale direzione, nel mondo di Google e dei Social Network?

La relazione intende sottolineare le tappe fondamentali della conoscenza (o non-conoscenza) dei Bulgari e della storia della Bulgaria in Italia, dal medioevo ai nostri giorni, passando per l’umanesimo e l’epoca barocca, facendo riferimento anche alle testimonianze di studenti ed ex-studenti di lingua bulgara, senza tuttavia pretendere di pervenire a risposte esaurienti.

VLAEVSKA Anna (nata a Plovdiv, Bulgaria), laureata in Lettere presso l’Università di Sofia, ha lavorato come redattore nella sezione “Studi storici” della Casa editrice “S. Clemente d’Ocrida” dello stesso ateneo, curando edizioni nell’ambito della medievistica. Trasferitasi in Italia, durante l’a.a. 1993-94 ha collaborato come borsista al piano di ricerca del Dipartimento di Studi eurasiatici dell’Università di Venezia “Ca’ Foscari” e dal 1998 insegna lingua bulgara presso l’Università di Pisa. Membro dell'Associazione Italiana per lo Studio della Santità, dei Culti e dell'Agiografia (AISSCA).  Gli interessi scientifici della dott.ssa Vlaevska sono concentrati su due temi: la complicata questione della presenza dei protobulgari nell’Italia altomedievale e l’interpretazione della cristianizzazione del Primo impero bulgaro nella tradizione storiografica e letteraria occidentale dal Tardo Medioevo all’età Barocca. Sul secondo tema ha effettuato delle ricerche negli archivi vaticani e veneziani e sta realizzando una serie di pubblicazioni basate su documenti inediti o non studiati da questo punto di vista.

La conferenza si terrà in italiano.

Canon and Translation (canonical translation/translative canon)

In order for two cultures to intertwine and explore each other, it is essential to what extent the literary canon of one culture is possible in the other; how capable the receiving country is of creating a proper receptive context as a way to absorb the other literature’s esteemed original texts and what kind of selective approach will it choose to apply. 
When it comes to Slavic identity models, do all the similarities in language, historical “faith”, mentality and stereotypes push us further apart or bring us closer together? What is our presence in our kindred literatures and what is the others’ presence in ours?
How deeply is this phenomenon called canonical translation ensconced in Bulgarian socio-cultural space and can we say that certain works that have become popular in Europe and the world, are being marginalized (reduced) in our country despite the fact that they have been published in Bulgarian for decades – just because the translation was not imposed and it was formally rejected? Is there a recipe for a successful translative approach? 
How does the translated Slavic canon look in the realm of Bulgarian literature? Upon what principles and selectivity it is grounded?

In the zone of the untranslatable

How to translate into Bulgarian the innovative radical prose of Friederike Mayröcker – prose in which the narration is erased, the story is missing, causality has been degraded and reality is revealed to its phenomena? Whether the translation should adhere closely to the original, recreating  the weird style of the author, with violated syntax and specific spelling, or vice versa – may it be unduly poetic, carrying aesthetic delight and unlimited use of the grammatical resources of Bulgarian language?

Advantage or Zift: the Sift of Translation (on contemporary reception abroad of two Bulgarian movies)

I have been teaching the Bulgarian classic Avantazh (Advantage) and the most successful recent Bulgarian movie Zift for years now. My Trinity College students’ response was inevitably identical: they happened to like both movies but they strongly preferred Zift to Advantage. What might be the reasons behind such a puzzling choice? Is this a question of the notorious fast fading of cinematic language? Is this an effect of the massive failing of tastes today? Or is it rather the shrinking capacity to cope with cinema as an art form? Or is this simply a question of Zift’s much better translation? Or is it a problem of translation but on a deeper level: the one that sifts out the (star-)dust of art and “buys” only the crude particles of narration and the overall message?
The fundamental question than would be: how should we teach/ comment/ recommend/ propagate/ advertise Bulgarian high art of the past, the Communist past in particular, in order to “sell” it abroad today?

Teaching Bulgarian Language, Literature and Culture at the University of Athens. The Project “Humor in Bulgarian culture and literature”

A Lectorat of Bulgarian Language, Literature and Culture in collaboration with the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Sciences was established three years ago, at the University of Athens – Faculty of Russian Philology & Slavic Studies. As first lecturer, I am honored to be part of the Facility’s activities and, thus, encouraged students’ participation in conferences and research projects. The paper presents the particularities of the learning of Bulgarian language by the Greek students, as well as the methods and techniques used for the perception of both language and literature. Special attention is paid to the use of audio books and movies inspired by literature also to the translation of subtitles and comparative studies. As an example of a new approach, the perspectives of the Project “Humor in Bulgarian culture and literature” will be analyzed.
