Elementary ratiocination
Michelle Gadpaille, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The paper reevaluates an obscure, German-language crime novel from the nineteenth century and its better-known English translation: Carl Adolf Streckfuss’s Das einsame Haus: nach den Tagebüchern des Herrn Professor Döllnitz: Roman (1888), translated as The Lonely House (1907). Although written in German by an author from Berlin, the novel is set on the territory of Slovenia. The paper situates the novel geographically and historically, while considering its place in the developing genres of crime and later detective fiction. Moreover, the novel’s depiction of intra- ethnic tension in the Slovenian village where the crime occurs will be shown to reflect the ethnic tensions on the frontiers of Austro-Hungarian territory, and to align with later trends in English detective fiction towards the use of ethnic taxonomies in constructing and solving crime.

Emigration gothic
Michelle Gadpaille, 2006, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Ellen Ross (l816?-1892) emigrated from Scotland to Montreal at mid-century and wrote two Gothic novels, in one of which - Violet Keith, An Autobiography (1868) - she used the Canadian setting as a fantastic Gothic locale in which to explore areas of social and sexual transgression. Drawing on earlier traditions of European Gothic, including Sir Walter Scott's mythologized Scottish landscape, and on an emerging North American genre of convent exposes, Ross's writing accommodates female protest, distances it from reality and allows its dissipation in conventional denouements. If female Gothic can be read as an analogue of realistic women's problems, then perhaps this analogy can be extended to encompass emigration and immigrant life. The paper analyzes Ross's motifs of loss, imprisonment, solitude, surveillance and deliverance and considers the possibility that Gothic motifs in her work both conceal and express features of the immigrant's psychic battle with the transition to the New World.

Psyche's daughter of today: Sara Jeannette Duncan and the new woman
Michelle Gadpaille, 2007, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The Canadian novelist Sara Jeannette Duncan (1861-1922) constructed a New Woman heroine in the fin-de- siècle novel, A Daughter of Today (1894). Writtenin the popular mode of the transatlantic novel, the work engages in debate on the appropriate construction of femininity in art and public life. The heroine, Elfrida Bell, descends from artist, to muse, to model, to paintedimage-a descent framed by a rival male artist and a hostile London art scene. Represented as Psyche, the heroine undergoes a quest and failure similar to the mythical one. Adaptation of the Psyche myth clarifies the position of Duncan in the spectrum of gender ideologies of the fin-de-siècle.

Trans-colonial collaboration and slave narrative
Michelle Gadpaille, 2011, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: In 1831 in London, two formidable women met: Mary Prince, an ex-slave from Bermuda, who had crossed the Atlantic to a qualified freedom, and Susanna Strickland, an English writer. The narrative that emerged from this meeting was The History of Mary Prince, which played a role in the fight for slave emancipation in the British Empire. Prince disappeared once the battle was won, while Strickland emigrated to Upper Canada and, as Susanna Moodie, became an often quoted 19th century Canadian writer. Prince dictated, Strickland copied, and the whole was lightly edited by Thomas Pringle, the anti-slavery publisher at whose house the meeting took place. This is the standard account. In contesting this version, the paper aims to reinstate Moodie as co-creator of the collaborative Mary Prince text by considering multiple accounts of the meeting with Prince and to place the work in the context of Moodie's pre- and post-emigration oeuvre on both sides of the Atlantic.

Dejan Hrovat, 2015, magistrsko delo

Opis: Magistrsko delo je z ozirom na stoto obletnico prve svetovne vojne tematska primerjava treh literarnih del o slednji, razdeljeno na tematske sklope o ideologiji, razčlovečenju in ugovoru vesti. Avtorji in dela, ki jih v nalogi obravnavam, so: Lovro Kuhar – Doberdob, Henri Barbusse – Le Feu in William March – Company K. Skozi analizo teh je prva svetovna vojna predstavljena v okviru sedmih sklopov literarnih tem, ki si jih obravnavana dela delijo. Kuhar, Barbusse in March so vidni predstavniki slovenske, francoske in ameriške vojne književnosti, njihova dela pa so primerljiva v luči številnih vsebinskih in strukturnih podobnosti. Z analizo teh želim ustvariti holističen portret prve svetovne vojne, kot so jo doživeli in predstavili Kuhar, Barbusse in March, ter odkriti pomen in smisel, ki so ga vojaki iskali v prvi svetovni vojni.

Andrej Zupanič, 2014, diplomsko delo

Opis: The aim of this thesis is to determine a comparative stylistic model that can be used in literary translation for analysing texts of a specific genre: alternative world fiction. The model consists of two parts, general stylistic analysis of prose fiction and specific stylistic analysis of alternative world fiction, which depend on the stylistic approaches suggested by Leech and Short, and Sandig and Sowinski, as well as Mandala’s study of language in science fiction and fantasy. This is put to empiric use on the basis of George R. R. Martin’s heroic fantasy A Clash of Kings, translated into Slovene by Branko Gradišnik. The thesis confronts the source text (original) with the target text (translation) from general as well as specific stylistic viewpoints. However, the emphasis of this stylistic analysis lies on the latter part that is text- and/or genre-specific. Within this part of the analysis, attention is directed toward geographic, character and other proper names, text- or genre-specific lexical and grammatical categories, use of archaic forms and language contact. These categories are considered from the translation viewpoint, thus revealing certain problems a translator faces while translating and/or adapting certain terms. The analysis merges literary linguistics with literary translation and confronts these with translator’s creative freedom, an artistic function every literary translator should posses. The thesis thus deals in its separate parts with word-formation, grammatical structures, the lexicon of British and American English, archaisms and fictive languages, and compares them with corresponding translations. These comparisons are then used to yield important stylistic revelations a translator should abide while translating alternative world fiction.

Andrejka Šerbec, 2015, diplomsko delo

Opis: My graduation thesis focuses on four novels: Burger`s Daughter, July`s People, The World of Strangers and The Late Bourgeois World, written by Nadine Gordimer. In her novels she used point of view to signal her opposition to apartheid. Nadine Gordimer is a white author who lived in South Africa during the years when the policy of apartheid was very much alive. The novels were published between 1958 and1981. The time setting of all novels is during the apartheid, which plays a significant role in the lives and fates of the characters. These literary works present what it was like living under apartheid and the terrible consequences of it for black South Africans, but mostly for white people who wanted to make their contribution in the anti-apartheid struggle. Her anti-apartheid point of view is reflected through various themes. The main characters in her novels are whites, male and female, who strongly disagree with the institution of apartheid and want to overthrow it, but at the same time she shows the sufferings of exploited black people. She mentions many historical events that took place in South Africa, but she focuses on the lives and emotions of the protagonists and the relationships between them, and she builds a work of literature over historical details. Her literary works provide a mirror through which the people of South Africa in the decades of apartheid could view themselves. Through her characters the whole historical process is crystallized.

Tomaž Anclin, 2015, magistrsko delo

Opis: Privacy is a matter of ever greater concern in the modern world, and tackling it is increasingly difficult as technology and globalisation threaten it at every step. People have been foreseeing such problems since the last century, and the most imaginative of these are the authors of dystopian fiction. Their works show worlds where the individual is controlled by the State, where the concepts of privacy and sexuality are victims or do not even exist any more. This thesis aims at identifying privacy's role in dystopian literature and observes how sexuality fits into the grander scheme of various societies. With this knowledge, it becomes possible to observe the modern world to see where fiction and reality meet on these topics. In order to thoroughly analyse privacy, it was necessary to separate it into different fields. The structure of the thesis follows this separation throughout. Works included range from classic novels, to articles in journals and media outlets. Each author of a dystopia provides a different vision of the future; thus, a range of surveillance methods are shown, although their targets, whether it be the body or the mind, never differ. Some works give certain targets more attention, others less. Yet, in the end the breach of privacy is an important theme in all the dystopias. A lack of privacy helps find the few dangerous individuals who are sacrificed for the stability of the many, the society, which means the safeguarding of the leaders. Sexuality is used against the people in various ways based on the needs and views of the authority, usually the State. In the modern world similar methods for dealing with privacy and sexuality are used, with some authorities behaving in similar ways. Dystopias can thus function as an effective introduction to an understanding of the modern world.

Simona Predanič, 2015, diplomsko delo

Opis: The subject of this graduation thesis is Jack London’s unconventional novel The Call of the Wild. The work falls into the genre of animal fiction, as the protagonist is a dog which possesses human attributes. The author’s philosophy of life is highly reflected in the book, as well as the influences of the survival philosophies of Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer. The impact of Herbert Spencer’s “survival of the fittest” ethic on the author and its reflection in The Call of the Wild are the main focus of this study. To achieve this goal, historical research about the author’s biography, influences on his beliefs, survival theories of Herbert Spencer and Charles Darwin and facts about social Darwinism was conducted. Findings of the historical research were then used to conduct an analysis on the text. This investigation of the text showed that the “survival of the fittest” ethic does prevail throughout the work; however, Darwin’s ideas on sympathy are also reflected in some areas of the work, showing that the protagonist survives not merely because of his superior psycho-physical features but also because of the sympathy or affection expressed by other characters towards the protagonist.
