ACTA IASSYENSIA COMPARATIONIS, SPECIAL 2019: MAGELLAN & ELCANO 500. CIRCUMNAVIGATION TO GLOBALIZATION
In order to celebrate the 5th Centenary of the Circumnavigation of the Earth and its heroes, as well as the invaluable material and cultural legacy that the Age of Discovery bequeathed to Humanity, the 2019 special issue of AIC brings together articles from a range of disciplines such as Comparative Literature, Linguistics, Historiography, Colonial and Postcolonial Studies or Education Sciences, signed by specialists from Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Greece and Romania.
The 500 years elapsed since the Portuguese Ferdinand Magellan and the Spaniard Sebastián Elcano embarked on what is considered to be the greatest nautical feat in history have completely and forever changed the way we understand the world. The naval expedition that returned to Spanish soil after a three-year journey (1519-1522) had not only found a new route to the coveted Spice Islands, but also proved that the Earth was round. This epochal voyage opened the way to the globalized world, promoting the rapprochement between different countries and continents, widening the cultural horizon and promoting the dissemination and exchange of new ideas.
ACTA IASSYENSIA COMPARATIONIS, 23 (1/2019)
The 23rd issue of AIC encompasses approaches, submitted by researchers from France, Italy, Greece, United States and Romania, to the INIMICAL BROTHERS theme.
Sibling relationships are thoroughly analysed as basic family interaction – the way it is usually depicted in literature –, but also as metaphors of the split personality, of differing characters and love-hate feelings among brethren artists and poets, of conflicting racial, social, religious and geopolitical entities.
AIC 24 (2/2019), REALITATE – IREALITATE / REALITY – UNREALITY / RÉALITÉ – IRRÉALITÉ.
