Interdiskurzívne konštruovanie reality v literatúre
The Interdiscursive Construction of Reality in Literature
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Mikuláš Roman PhD.
Anotácia: The project is focused on ways of exploring literature as an interdiscourse from a theoretical literary perspective. The research team will focus on the analysis of the potential of literary studies to describe literature as a phenomenon of interdiscourses, i.e. mutual communication and interrelation of the system of literature with other systems at various levels within the preconceived framework of interaction. These other systems constitute specific discourses (such as those of philosophy, mathematics, physics, biology, cognitive sciences, medicine, information technology and many others), producing knowledge that is communicated both within its original discourses and outside these discourses, either within the scientific system (interdisciplinary approach) or across various social systems via interdiscourses (such as literature, art, journalism and politics).

The attention of researchers is mainly focused on their philosophical content and textual criticism. The aim of the project is to analyze the main Upanishads from a poetological point of view and to explore how contemporary literary theories of ambiguity can contribute to understanding the diversity of their interpretations, ranging from monism to dualism. The main output of the project will be a commented Slovak translation of the Upanishads, which will be based on explicit knowledge of their poetics.

Konverzácia a európska literatúra
Conversation and European Literature
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. Mgr. Bžoch Adam CSc.
Anotácia: The aim of the project is cultural historical research of the conversation in European literatures from the Early Modernity till the XXth century (Italian, French, English, German, Dutch, Slavonic literatures). By comparative analysis of the images of non-formal communication, the project targets on evaluation of conversations in novels and other fictional and factual literary genres (drama, autobiography, memoirs) as civilisatory factors which stimulate erudition, urbanity, politeness, gender adequate communication and empathy, and helps to polish language and style, developes tolerance and ethical norms across epoches and cultures. These qualities, recorded in literary dialogues, conversational plays, memoirs and autobiographies, but also manuals of rethoric and stylistics, are transfered in literary communication across cultures and stabilize norms of civilisation. The main output will be a monograph on history of conversation in European literatures.

Literárny/umelecký artefakt a jeho kontexty (Komparatistika a sociálne vedy)
Literary/artistic artefact and its contexts (Comparative literature and social sciences)
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. PhDr. Bátorová Mária DrSc.
Anotácia: The project deals with the conceptualization of new approaches to analyses of literary work and its contextes and subsequently processes, where it plays the main part. Their identifrication is complicated in theory, consisting of multiple approaches of various disciplines, in this case chiefly the sociology. The well established paradigm of creative-artistic process: author, text, reader – is completed by context survey of each of mentioned components. The project aims to build a new methodology and theory of contextes, as well as the incorporation of the concept of the author as a main part of the complex approach to literary work, where each aspect has its fundamental role.

Preklad ako súčasť dejín kultúrneho procesu III. Preklad a prekladanie – texty, osobnosti, inštitúcie v interdisciplinárnych a transdisciplinárnych vzťahoch
Translation as part of the cultural process history III. Translation and translating – texts, personalities, institutions in inter- and transdisciplinary relations
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. PhDr. Kusá Mária CSc.
Anotácia: The aims of this inter- and even transdisciplinary project reflect the current developments in translation studies and issues in world literature and comparative literature. Moreover, the project has been designed to connect these discourses to what is currently going on in other fields of the humanities (philosophy, cultural history, sociology, oral history, etc.) and natural sciences (human geography, inferential statistics, ecology, etc.). The aims of the projects are as follows: a) interpretation of significant translations in the Slovak cultural space (with the assessment of their canonical status); b) examination of culturally significant, yet less defining texts, i. e. educational, pragmatic or religious texts, which have not been thoroughly examined so far; c) examining the broad and still evolving field of audio(and/or)visual texts operating in the popular culture. Given the scope of the project’s aims and the research team’s expertise, it is only natural that the research will focus not only

Reflexia ruského formalizmu v slovenských prekladoch a literárnovedných prácach Mikuláša Bakoša (metodológia, terminológia, recepcia).
Reflections on Russian Formalism in Slovak Translations and Literary Studies by Mikuláš Bakoš (Methodology, Terminology, Reception)
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: doc. PhDr. Pašteková Soňa CSc.
Anotácia: Proposed project focuses on the theoretical and translatological reflection of the methodology concepts of Russian formalism in the works of a Slovak literary scientist of the last century, M. Bakoš (1914-1972). As an interdisciplinary humanities researcher (founder of the Society for Scientific Synthesis, 1937) and translator of scientific texts, he responded to the impulses of the formalism accentuating the literary science terminology. He directed his interests towards the increasing rigor of Slovak scientific thinking, towards defining the subject of literary science, and towards refining the literary science terminology and categories. He contributed significantly to the higher quality of the reception of World literature in Slovak scientific space. In the very center of attention of today’s literary science, therefore, appear reflections of Bakoš’ scientific thinking, his contribution to literary science as a whole and to world literature studies in the Slovak context, and the Russian literatur studies.

MULTITRANSPOSTHU – Analýza multidimenzionálnej podoby trans- a post-humanizmu
Analysis of the multidimensional character of trans- and posthumanism
Program: SRDA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Suwara Bogumiła PhD.
Anotácia: The main objective of the project is a multidimensional transdisciplinary research of mutual dynamic relationshipsrelated to the issue of human gene editing and posthumanism in five research domains: biology-biotechnology,philosophical reflection, (bio)ethical reflection, biopolitical analysis and democratization of science, art andculture. In particular, the project focuses on a philosophical reflection of the concept of trans- and posthumanismwith an emphasis on human germline cells genome editing in relation to human nature, genetic determinism andaesthetic transformation of the human body. The issue of a transformation of the human biological species(homo sapiens) is analyzed in the context of the conflicts between a realis and social-constructivistunderstanding of biological categorization. At the level of bioethical and biopolitical reflection, the projectanalyzes the impact of trans- and posthumanist modification of the human genome on the society, its politicalinstitutions and regulatory abilities, the process of science democratization and the phenomenon of biohacking.At the cultural and artistic level, the project focuses on the analysis of artistic portrayal of trans- andposthumanism in dystopian literary, new media, film and television works. This also includes an analysis of themetaphorical language of molecular geneticists recently represented by the term "gene editing".

Spoločenská angažovanosť, identita a modernita v súčasnej africkej anglofónnej literatúre
Social engagement, identity and modernity in contemporary African Anglophone writing
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Dr. Pucherová Dobrota D.Phil.
Anotácia: The project is a continuation of the previous, preparatory 2-year project titled Dissent and Resistance in Contemporary African Writing. It will contribute to the discussion on social resistance, engagement, and personal responsibility that has been at the fore-front of recent philosophical discourses on African modern identity. It concerns the issues of personal and communal responsibility vs oppression and victimhood, cultural authenticity vs interculturality, and political resistance vs complicity, all of which seem to point to the question of „African modernity“ in its philosophical and material meaning. In the socio-historical context where African societies have increasingly become dysfunctional due to lack of civil society, literature has been seen as an instrument of resistance, functioning as testimony, dissent, political protest, and philosophy. The project will analyze the ethical, aesthetic and political aspects of this literary imagination.

Hyperlexikón literárnovedných pojmov a kategórií II
Hyperlexicon of Concepts and Categories in Literary Studies II
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Mikuláš Roman PhD.
Anotácia: This project is the continuation of an existing project bearing the same name. Its chief objective was, and still is, the creation of a lexicon of literary studies in hypertext medium. The hyperlexicon contains terms describing aspects of literary texts and also concepts that belong to the literary meta-discussion. The necessity to continue with the project and fulfill its objectives are due to the fact that the conclusions of the discussions in the ongoing project infer high degrees of complexity and, simultaneously, the difficulty of the problem of orientation within the language of literary studies in various areas of research traditions. Yet another motivation for the continuation of the project resides in the great dynamics of transformation of knowledge between disciplines (in recent times increasingly among the natural, technological and human sciences), however always wanting to benefit from the anticipation of trends in the field of meta-theory or methodology.

Prepísanie naratívnej tradície: próza maďarského postmodernistu Pétera Esterházyho
Rewriting the Narrative Tradition: The Fiction of the Hungarian Postmodernist Péter Esterházy
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Görözdi Judit PhD.
Anotácia: Péter Esterházy (1950), a notable Hungarian postmodernist, is present also in the Slovak cultural space through translations. However there has been a dearth of analytical confrontation of his work in its own referential contexts (e.g. the tradition of mimetic/referential fiction, autobiographical writing, historical narrative, confessional narration, the linguistic tradition of the literary expression, the problem of the originality of a text and cultural tradition). The project will result in a monograph consisting of interpretations of individual works from the point of view of their aesthetic/literary/poetological issues, as well as their literary-historical place in the history of Hungarian literature and postmodernism.

Preklad ako súčasť dejín kultúrneho priestoru II
Translation as a Part of the Cultural Space History II. Fact, Phenomena and Personalities in Translation Activities in the Slovak Cultural Space and the Forms of their Functioning
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. PhDr. Kusá Mária CSc.
Anotácia: Translation as a Part of the Cultural Space History II. Fact, Phenomena and Personalities in Translation Activities in the Slovak Cultural Space and the Forms of their Funcioning represents further and systematic long-term literary, cultural and historical research of translation in Slovakia. In European context, the perception of translation as a part of the history of the given cultural space has won wider recognition only in the recent years. The project is unique due to its potential of creation a synergic effect of the cultural, literary and historical, and, at the same time, generalizing theoretical thinking on translation. This combined approach to the basic source and material research and application of the resultind theoretical concepts thanks to the participation of relevant Slovak translatological institutions assumes a background for a systematic research of the "fate" of translation in the Slovak cultural space.

Discursive Impulses for Literary Historiography: Insights to the Work of Selected German Writing Female Authors (from End of the18th Century till Today)
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: PhDr. Cviková Jana PhD.
Anotácia: The project focuses on producing discursive impulses for literary historiography in two key periods for women’s writing (from end of the 18th to the beginning of 20th cent. and second half of 20th to the beginning of 21st cent.). The project explores concrete works of selected German writing female authors (geograficaly and culturally linked to Slovakia and Switzerland) in the background of literary and aesthetic as well as social-political and cultural changes. Considering existing attempts in the field, the project aspires to evolve international knowledge and approaches of gender studies, which are still underrepresented in Slovakia. The project also attempts to hinge on cultural and post-colonial studies using their interdisciplinary potential and conscious reflection of the situatedness of research. The case studies of the female authors are focused on such a text analysis, which can improve the critical and intersectionally-inclusive literary-historical writing open to diverse text interpretation.

Anotácia: The proposal of grant is conceived as a continuation of projects: Literature in cyberspace and Text on the Internet as a phenomenon of cultural (r)evolution, both of which focused on studying literature/text in the context of programmable media. The new project should study mainly digital texts, electronic literature and electronic art from the perspective of postdigital media – the global net interactivity and its consequences for reflecting electronic literature/art/culture. The research into hypermedia artefact (represented by digital texts, electronic literature and art) should be linked with the answers by literary studies to the urgent appeal to “humanization” of scientific results gained by information technologies and their influence on artistic (and cultural) discourse.

Anotácia: The aim of the project is research the contribution of the Dutch cultural historian Johan Huizinga (1872-1940) to the “cultural turns” for contemporary Humanities and Cultural Studies. The main result will be a monograph in Slovak language on Huizinga, stressing two points: 1. Huizinga’s innovations of interpretation methods, significant to contemporary Humanities and Cultural Studies 2. New problems and thematic issues opened by Huizinga. The project focuses on the main points of Huizinga´s thinking (his theory of image, relations between world and image and between several forms of knowledge, cultural materialism, holistic view on cultural periods) which prefigure the vital forms and aspects of contemporary Humanities and Cultural Studies (Bildwissenschaft, intermedial studies, New Historicism and discourse analysis, cultural analysis, history of mentalities and history of everyday life).

Zobrazovanie Indie v slovenskej literatúre
Imagining India in Slovak Literature
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: doc. Mgr. Gáfrik Róbert PhD.
Anotácia: India has played a significant role in the imagination of the Western civilization since antiquity. In the 18th century the British imperial activities in India brought closer contacts and new knowledge of Indian culture which also shows in European literature. Once can observe a reception of Indian culture in Slovakia already in the works of the leaders of Slovak national awakening such as J. Holly or J. Kollar, it shows in the works of modernist poets I. Krasko and V. Roy and in present in the works J. Litvak, R. Bielik, J. Banas and others. The aim of the project is to map the reception of India in Slovak literature, review it in the European context and to explore if and how the orientalist or some other discourse manifests in it.

Disent a odpor v súčasnej africkej literatúre
Dissent and resistance in contemporary African writing
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Dr. Pucherová Dobrota D.Phil.
Anotácia: The project will analyze contemporary African writing in English in the context of social engagement. The object of study will be dissent and political resistance against the totalitarian power of the African postcolony in this literature and what kind of identities this literature offers in the atmosphere of fear and instability, which forces the citizens to adapt to permanent change by creating unstable, fragmented identities. The basic difference between anti-colonial and postcolonial engaged literature is the difference between the understanding of identity and subjectivity: while the anti-colonial narrative understands subjectivity in the spirit of social realism as firmly anchored and essential, the postcolonial narrative can no longer afford this kind of understanding of subjectivity, which changes also the understanding of resistance. The methodological approach will utilize impulses of psychoanalytical approaches to literature, postmodern cultural theory and theories of trauma narrative.

Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. PhDr. Bátorová Mária DrSc.
Anotácia: The proposed project presents a continuation of the current research about alternative art and art of the so called “internal emigration”. Socialist realism creates a sort of a contrast, which is highly necessary and suitable material for the research. Its analysis, based on historical conditions, can define the ground problem, reasons and functioning of its collapse and direction of cultural activities. The research will have interdisciplinary character. Comparative method will be applied, as well.

Hyperlexikón literárnovedných pojmov a kategórií
Hyperlexicon of Concepts and Categories in Literary Studies
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Mikuláš Roman PhD.
Anotácia: Project´s aim is to create a lexicon of concepts and categories in literary studies in the hypertext medium. A need to clarify the language of literary studies is significant due to the interdisciplinary transfomations in the system of literary studies resulting in the growing complexity of knowledge in the field of literary studies. Based on the contemporary discussions at domestic and foreign literary research institutes, we can deduce a high degree of importance in the problematics of clarification of the language of literary studies. This condition is on the one hand a result of dynamic transformations of knowledge among scholarly disciplines in favour of the creation and consolidation of their identities and on the other hand a result of the contemporary process of democratisation of the scholarly knowledge. The project outlines, concretized mainly in the hyperlexicon entries, will be grounded in the interpretation of the problem itself and will have a character of the „primary research“.

Dejiny rumunskej literatúry (literárny život v kontexte)
The history of Romanian literature (literary life in context)
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: PhDr. Vajdová Libuša CSc.
Anotácia: The aim of the project is to produce the first history of Romanian literature in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Despite more than a 100-year existence of Romanian Studies as a discipline there is no coherent book-length work of this kind in this linguistic region. The collective monograph The History of Romanian Literature will be the result of the collaboration of Slovak, Czech and Romanian specialists and will fill in a blank space in the primary research of this subject in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Methodologically, it emerges from the changes in the historiographic paradigm and follows up on the current research of literature as part of a multicultural universe, cultural topography and contextual understanding of phenomena. In this way, it problematizes literary canons based on causality and binary patterns. The project is implicitly comparatist and relativizing, as it studies Romanian literature from a foreign environment. It understands this literature contextually, as emerging from the heterogeneous character of Romanian culture on the crossroads of Central Europe, the Balkans and the Romance regions of Western Europe.

Preklad ako súčasť dejín kultúrneho priestoru
Translation as a Part of the Cultural Space History
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. PhDr. Kusá Mária CSc.
Anotácia: The project Translation as a Part of the Cultural Space History represents continuous and systematic literary, cultural and historical research of translation in Slovakia that has been started several years ago. In broader European context, a definition of translation and its history as a part of history of particular cultural space was created no sooner than several years ago (France, Bulgaria, etc.). This project is exceptional mainly (due to the direct involvement of several foremost Slovak translatologists) for its ability to create a synergistic effect (cultural, literary and historical) and at the same time generalized theoretical thinking on translation which seems to be a crucial and necessary factor especially if translation is understood to be a part of history of Slovak cultural territory.

Anotácia: The project History of Russian Literature is methodologically based on the results achieved in the previous successful project of the same research team Russian Literature of the 11th – 20th Centuries (Literary Life, Literary Process). Its main objective was to publish The Dictionary of Russian Literature. In order to write the first complete Slovak history of Russian Literature the project will draw upon the knowledge and experience gained from the work on the dictionary. Alongside with the factographic material it will reflect the contemporary methodological principles of literary historiography as well as the reception context of Slovak and Central-European literature and culture.

Jozef Felix (1913-1977) a cesta k vedeckému konštituovaniu slovenskej romanistiky
Jozef Felix (1913-1977) and the Rout to the scholarly constitution of the Slovak Romance Studies
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: doc. Mgr. Kučerková Magda PhD.
Anotácia: The aim of the project is a systematic assessment of the work and scholarly method of Jozef Felix (1913 – 1977), the founder of the Slovak Romance Studies as a scholarly discipline. The project focuses on a consistently Romanist research of the literary-historical and translation works of J. Felix and its complex elaboration, which, hitherto, has not been written in the Slovak literary scholarship. As the need for it has been felt for a longer time, there is an occasion for a synthetic view – the 100th anniversary of the author’s birthday (May 2013). The project also focuses on examining the non-published materials and implications of the author’s works, especially in international dimension. Attention is paid to the connection of research in the field of French, Spanish and Italian literatures, which is a novelty also in the framework of the Romance studies. The outcome of the project is a preparation of a conference to 100th anniversary of the author\’s birthday and a publication of a collective monograph.

Ruský symbolizmus v diele Andreja Belého vo svetle súčasných európskych vízií multikulturality a zjednotenia
Russian Symbolism in the Work of Andrei Bely in the Context of Contemporary European Visions of Multiculturalism and Unification
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Maliti Eva CSc.
Anotácia: The project examines the importance and the special character of Russian symbolism for European culture with respect to the works of poet, fiction-writer and literary theorist Andrei Bely (1870 – 1934). A penetration into the artistic and ideological heritage of the writer\’s experimental work placed between art and criticism, if confronted with present-day European visions of multiculturalism and unity, and their genesis, shows a continuity of thinking and spirituality on the East-West and Russia-Europe axes. The project is also devoted to his traced reception in Slovak literature and literary theory and creates an image of the Central European reception of the works of a Russian symbolist in connection with the epoch\’s ideological trends.

Súčasná africká anglofónna exilová literatúra
Contemporary Anglophone African exile literature
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Dr. Pucherová Dobrota D.Phil.
Anotácia: The project will contribute to the debate about the impact of globalization on African identities through analysis of recent African Anglophone exilic writing and the debate about the understanding of "African literature" and "literariness". Many sociological and economic analyses argue that although the historical development of postcolonial Africa has been marked by political and economic regression, Africa is finally entering the global community, as demonstrated by the rise of Chinese investment on the continent. The project aims to problematize this view. African exilic and diasporic literature published over the last 15 years opens nex viewpoints on Africa\’s position in the world. It suggests that the phenomenon of globalization is not based on the inclusion of all, but on the exclusion of some from the global community. In the view of African exilic/diasporic authors, Africans abroad are not welcome in their host countries and are denied cosmopolitan hybrid identities.

Slovensko-chorvátske literárne vzťahy po roku 1948
Slovak-Croatian Relations after 1948
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: PhDr. Jankovič Ján DrSc.
Anotácia: The aim of the project is to give a complex and systematic view of the history of translation from Croatian to Slovak in the horizon of five decades; to define the character of these changes from the aspect of continuity and discontinuity of literary relations. To pursue, on the basis of material and factual entirety, to what extent the translations (published and staged) contributed to the development and identification of the Slovak culture, to evaluate the contribution of the most important translations and translators, shed light on the reception and positions of Croatian literature in the Slovak culture. It is important to assess the reception of translations in the arch from the period of dogmatism to nowadays; in particular to pursue the fact that the tradition of national relations lays on a Slavonic basis, while the tradition in the sphere of artistic translation is a part of integrative andintellectual motion in Europe.

Text na internete ako jav (r)evolúcie kultúry
Text on the Internet as the Phenomenon of (r)evolution of Culture
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Suwara Bogumiła PhD.
Anotácia: The proposal of the grant project Text on the Internet as the Phenomenon of (r)evolution of Culture is planned as the sequel of the grant assignment Literature in Cyberspace (2/7090/07). Its task will be besides studying the manifestation of the democratization of the literary expression, reception and criticism also dealing with the questions of hypertextuality of culture, intermedial transport of various text types (blogs, literary web sites, internet forums and their alternative voice). Apart from the perspective of McLuhan\’s notion of the medium created message, the grant project will consider the problems regarding the way the internet medium excesses the message (information) in the traditional sense and supplements it with new aspects: interactivity, contextuality, immersion, etc. A question regarding the historical perspective appears in this context: are we dealing with the evolutionary or revolutionary change in the culture?Scientific goals1. The examination of the process of penetration of the voices of professional criticism on the website of literary works and democratization of the literary communication, or medial hybrids (texts in other media). 2. The analysis of blogs (linked internet pages) as the display of contemporary hypertext cultural form.3. The analysis of media consciousness of the print literature authors. 4. The examination of the question, to what extent the virtual reality can be understood as the new but evolutionary legitimate immersive art space, or to what extent it is just the other example of the cultural genealogy (analogy, proximity, convergence, adaptation…), or the possibility of the application of the chaos theory principles on the process of literary creation. Above that it seems, that the term immersion is the effort of the description of the “verisimilitude”/”conditions” – Popper) of the technologically new, virtual environment, characteristic by a specific type of the interaction among various worlds. (Are they Popper\’s worlds? Is it the biological world versus the artificial world?).

Anotácia: The presented project examines the particularities of the Hungarian postmodern novels on the basis of individual poetic worlds of the specific texts, understood as artistic responses to postmodern philosophic-aesthetic appeals. The project\’s basis lies in the literary-historical status of the Hungarian literature, it is engaged in postmodern analogies to novelistic subgenres from the point of view of deconstruction of the tradition as well as from the point of view of the concrete poetical examples of the fragmented narration. Project\’s aim is also to map the Slovak reception of these works.

Reprezentácie prirodzeného v moderne a v avantgardách
Representations of the Natural in the Modernity and Avant-gardes
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: prof. Mgr. Bžoch Adam CSc.
Anotácia: The project continues the previous research project of modernity and avant-gardes realized on the IWL, SAS. It concentrates on cultural notions of the natural and artistic representations which root in these notions. Esp.the period between 1890 and 1946 is focused, as the "nature" ("naturalness") is recognized as the key-term for the whole thinking in the humanities in the 20th c. The chief problems are: relations between arts/literature and the problems of naturalness as empirical, rational but also psychical side within the human creativity; to what extention the status of the natural interferes with or even changes the considerations of the functions and the notions of the natural within the artistic and literary representations, in synergy with its philosophical understanding in the modern times (Hume, Hegel, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Spengler, Bergson etc.). The necessity of the interdisciplinary approach is necessary as this question cannot be answered without help of other human sciences.

Literárna veda ako "Systemics"
Literary Studies as "Systemics"
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Mikuláš Roman PhD.
Anotácia: The project is an attempt at an analysis and systematization of the possibilities of the interconnection of constructivism, systems theory and chaos research in literary studies, which have recently featured more frequently also in the literary critical discourse. They are meta-discourses that by their mutual intersections form the background of the so-called postmodern literary studies. Without their detailed knowledge postmodern literary studies become just a vague metaphor and lose their validity. It should be taken into consideration that the radical constructivism as well as chaos theory belong to systems theory in the system of science. This new paradigm, which began to be known as systemics, represents a departure from the analysis of static structures in favor of the observation of movements in highly complex dynamic systems. We assume that literature can be understood only in the process of communication.

Perspectives of Contribution of Sanskrit Poetics to the Discourse of Contemporary Western Literary Science
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: doc. Mgr. Gáfrik Róbert PhD.
Anotácia: The Western literary science started by Plato\’s reflections in Republic and by Aristotle’s Poetics. Similarly, in India(2nd century BC?) Bharata by his Natyashastra laid the foundations of Indian literary science. From Bharata tothe 17th century, thought about literature was flourishing in Sanskrit tradition and many schools developed.However, Sanskrit literary theory is little known in the West and is often limited to indological circles, which see itto a great extent as a relict of the past. However, it is still flourishing, although in a modified form, in the study ofliteratures in modern Indian languages. The aim of the project is to explore the possibilities and areas in whichSanskrit poetics may enter into a dialog with Western literary science and enrich it by new solutions to knownproblems, by new concepts or problems.

Literatúra v kyberpriestore
Literature in cyberspace
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Suwara Bogumiła PhD.
Anotácia: Cyberspace is understood here as a space for functioning of virtual, multicultural and literary communication. Producing texts (also literary) in cyberspace forces to reassess the notion of communication – comunicare, namely in the meaning of: allow participation, offer, unite; as well as: electronic dispersion of information. It is needed to direct the study of literature, as a major form of communication (we suppose that it is so also in cyberspace), towards searching for relations and concerns the e-texts are accompanied with. Reading (lecture) is perceived as a non-unidirectional process, in which reading is blending with writing. The project Literature in Cyberspace aims to study thoroughly ontological, epistemological and aesthetic relations decisive for the participation of the reader on the creation of the story (creative writing, plays, random choice, computer programme) in an open, multi-ply and even transient (non-lasting) text spread by means of electronic canal.

Diskurzy literatúry pre deti a mládež
Discourse about Children´s and Juvenile Literature
Program: VEGA
Zodpovedný riešiteľ: Mgr. Mikuláš Roman PhD.
Anotácia: The project entitled “Discourse about Children’s and Juvenile literature” is an analytical exploration of the complex of utterances, conditions and rules of production and reception of academic studies influencing thinking about children’s and juvenile literature. In literary scholarship, the various discourse-analytical concepts are problematic. The term discourse itself is extremely ambivalent. We will understand the term in the sense of a system of thinking and reasoning focused on a particular object (of a speech act) which is governed by rules (of the speech act) and which is defined by the system of relations to other discourses. Basically, we are concerned about the analysis of the complexity of the term children’s and juvenile literature in its entanglement in sociological, psychological, aesthetic, didactic, pedagogic, literary-historical, literary-theoretical and other ideological concepts. We will follow the origins of the term on the example of its use in German speaking countries. We will draw on the genealogical concept of discourse analysis, which as the only one accepts the historical reconstruction of functions and conditions of discourses.
