DISPRO - Digital Collection of Slovak Prose

Digitálna zbierka slovenskej prózy

Duration: 1. 7. 2021 - 30. 6. 2025
Program: APVV
Project leader: Mgr. Navrátil Martin PhD.
Annotation:The project is focused on applied interdisciplinary research in digital humanities. The aim of the project is to create an online accessible and comprehensively annotated full-text digital collection of Slovak prose until 1951 (with regard to copyright and GDPR). The digital collection of literary texts of this scope and characteristics is still absent in Slovakia, which is especially felt by literary scholars and the wider professional public. The collection will be processed and annotated according to European standards (ELTeC) so that it can be applied to advanced methods of computer processing of literary texts, generally referred to as "distant reading". The project also includes the education of scholars and the general public in the use of the digital collection of Slovak prose, and dissemination of scientific methods based on distant reading to the wider range of humanities. The main applied outputs of the project are following: an online digital collection of Slovak prose until 1951, an interactive web portal, user guides, and a series of educational workshops

Hyperlexikón - Interactive hypertext lexicon of literary studies with a corpus of key literary studies texts

Interaktívny hypertextový lexikón literárnej vedy s korpusom kľúčových literárnovedných textov

Duration: 1. 7. 2021 - 30. 6. 2025
Program: APVV
Project leader: PhDr. Kuzmíková Jana CSc.
Annotation:The main aim of the project is the creation of an interactive lexicon of literary studies terms in hypertext format together with a corpus of texts from the said field. The project follows up on the work on the electronic Hyperlexicon of Concepts and Categories in Literary Studies which was created in two VEGA research projects. The updated and expanded Hyperlexicon will adopt new content-related and functional elements. In terms of function, the work will be more interactive and open; in terms of content, the Hyperlexicon will now include important texts which in their time helped spearhead new modes of thinking or even whole new paradigms. However, the hypertextuality of the lexicon will still be retained. The experts who will author the new entries will not only summarize the current body of knowledge but also conduct their own research and other related publication activities in accordance with the aims of the project to provide even more up to date findings on the subject matter. We are convinced that such a broad and synthesizing collaborative endeavor must be rooted in basic research. As of today, Slovak literary scholars do not have access to a dictionary that would summarize the state of the art knowledge in the field in a broad manner and across individual philological specialization and would be fully available to them online

Literary-historical, cultural-historical and editorial treatment of Samuel Ferjenčík's manuscript notebook

Literárnohistorické, kultúrnohistorické a edičné spracovanie rukopisnej poznámkovej knihy Samuela Ferjenčíka

Duration: 1. 1. 2021 - 31. 12. 2024
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Braxatoris Martin PhD.
Annotation:The subject of the project is a comprehensive scientific treatment of the German-language manuscript of the notebook of Samuel Ferjenčík, an important, though in many ways underappreciated, the personality of Slovak and Hungarian cultural history. This relic (approx. 160 manuscript pages) has so far been the subject of many publications (Slovak, Czech, German, Hungarian, etc. This is also true of its relation to the author's printed literary production. Editorial processing of the text includes its transcription, translation, elaboration of the textual-critical apparatus and provision of its trilingual edition. The editorial treatment will be organically linked to the linguistic research of the text aimed at with regard to the issues of translation and the problems of Slovak-Hungarian linguistic relations. Literary-historical research will focus on the literary interpretation of the monument as a reflexive artistic text. Emphasis will also be placed on aspects of the text related to the context of Slovak and wider regional cultural history and the history of religious or philosophical thought.

LIPCES - Literature in a processes of cultural-ethnic self-identification of the Slovak community in Serbia

Literatúra v procesoch kultúrno-etnickej sebaidentifikácie slovenskej komunity v Srbsku

Duration: 1. 3. 2022 - 31. 12. 2023
Program: APVV
Project leader: Mgr. Hučková Dana CSc.
Annotation:The project will focus on problem cultural memory and national/ethnic and cultural identity in Slovak and Serbian literature from the 19th century until the present day, with an emphasis on the processes of cultural-ethnic selfidentification of the Slovak enclaves in Serbia. The project is using the impetus of the cultural studies, the focus is placed on the area of literary history and its cultural, social and political contexts: 1. Researching processes of creating and modifying cultural memory and identity of Slovak literature in Serbian Vojvodina; 2. Following breaking points and shift of cultural strata created by means of literature, as well as their overlaps; 3. Identifying and interpreting manifestations of cultural presentations and representations in their original and updated dimensions, as well as in the dimension transformed by actualization processes. The project will build on the earlier research of the issue of Slovak-Serbian relations. At the same time, with the application the broad actually conceptual framework of the category of identity to deepen the current state of the knowledge of this research area. The project´s interpretative strategy can be deacribed as a fusion of hermeneutic, pragmatic and cultural materialist approaches.

Methodological Procedures in Literary-Scholarship Research with an Impact on the Media Environment

Metodologické postupy v literárnovednom výskume s presahom do mediálneho prostredia (FF UPJŠ Košice)

Duration: 1. 7. 2020 - 30. 6. 2024
Program: APVV
Project leader: Mgr. Hučková Dana CSc.
Annotation:This four-year project is focused on the functional use of methodological procedures in an interdisciplinary oriented literary-scholarship research. It is based on the philological tradition of literary scholarship in Slovakia, it will be focused on the application of hermeneutic, formal, heuristic, structuralist, comparative, cognitive, and semiotic approaches with interdisciplinary overlaps into the media environment.The main objective is to increase the exactness in literary research, namely in the analytical-interpretative work with source texts (from the reception aesthetics, creation of perceptual codes to aperceptive methodological procedures) and in the review of inter-literary relations within the Czech-Slovak and Central European contexts (with the emphasis laid on genetic and poetological specifics of Slovak literature in wider cultural contexts). The overlap into the media environment follows the variability of the literary text (of not merely Slovak literature) as a media product (especially current trends in theatrical and audio-visual adaptations) especially with regard to the formal and thematic processing of the contemporaneous stereotypes in the socio-cultural context with functional use of specific methodological procedures. The objective of the project is to make available the monographically prepared outcomes of critical review of established theorems and their sustainable audio-visual mediation. Therefore, specific authors and artistic texts are in the centre of the monitored issues (on the genological axis of poetry, fiction, drama) with an emphasis on the late 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries. The scientific assumption is a change in the previous literary-historical classification of particular authors, in a qualitative re-evaluation of their poetics and creative contribution to the development of Slovak literature (with regard to the differentiation of Realism and Modern and aesthetic pluralism in the interwar literature).

Modernism in Slovak Literature II

Modernizmus v slovenskej literatúre II

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2023
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Habaj Michal PhD.
Annotation:The project continues a project VEGA on Modernism solved between 2016 and 2019. Besides previously researched Modernist forms, tendencies and aspects in Slovak literature between 1900 and 1948, it researches other problems, such as terminology, periodisation, typology of Modernist literature, as well as philosophical and aesthetic contexts and concepts of respective forms of Modernism (Slovak Modern School – Second Modern School – Expressionism – Avant-garde – Catholic Modern School, and others). It also researches Modernist discourse on autonomy of arts, as well as media and institutions of literary life in this period that were a venue for Modernist poetics and discussions. The reconstruction of Modernism in Slovak literature of the first half of the 20th century wishes to result in a new synthesis in literary history, using relevant and updated methodological approaches.

National Revival Representations – modes of realisation, transgressions and transitions

Národnoobrodenecké reprezentácie - mody realizácie, transgresie a tranzície

Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2023
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Taranenková Ivana PhD.
Annotation:The project aims to reconstruct the National Revival model of representations of the “long” 19th century in Slovak literature through semiotic analysis and interpretations of the literary corpus of the period under examination. The research will examine how the model changed through the transgressive and transitional processes it underwent in this period and identify the dominant aesthetic, poetic and genre categories in which this kind of representation took place, was modified and disrupted, focusing on three selected thematic areas: identity, space and time. The key analytical category used in the project will be the notion of mode, as used in Western literatury criticism (N. Frye, A. Fowler, G. Genette, C. Guillén) in terms of a genre-transcending category or a modifying genre indicator. The project further aims to identify the literary and genre techniques through which ideological elements are re-presented in individual texts and the converse effect it has on culture and society.

Prekusvet - TRANSLATION AND ASPECTS OF RECEPTION OF SOCIAL SCIENCE AND HUMANITIES TEXTS AS CULTURAL AND LITERARY TRANSFER IN THE 20TH CENTURY

PREKLAD A ASPEKTY RECEPCIE SPOLOČENSKOVEDNÝCH A HUMANITNOVEDNÝCH TEXTOV AKO KULTÚRNY A LITERÁRNY TRANSFER V 20. STOROČÍ

Duration: 1. 7. 2022 - 30. 6. 2026
Program: APVV
Project leader: doc. PhDr. Brtáňová Erika CSc.

SlovKa19 - Slovak preach literature in the 19th century

Slovenská kázňová spisba v 19. storočí

Duration: 1. 7. 2020 - 30. 6. 2024
Program: APVV
Project leader: doc. PhDr. Brtáňová Erika CSc.
Annotation:An important part of the Slovak literature is spiritual element, especially the genre of sermon or homily. In the history of the Slovak literature, it has so far been given only marginal attention (during the communist period this topic was deliberately circumvented and not all library and archival collections were accessible). This genre is also important because it influenced the broad strata of the population, shaped the modern Slovak national and cultural identity, and formed the same Catholic and Protestant communities. The project will map sermon writing in Slovak language from the 19th century, primarily printed and secondary preserved manuscript. This is a basic research project that will dominantly examine the original editions of sermons and the preserved manuscripts of sermons in memory institutions. The aim of the project is to create partial studies, two anthologies (pastoral letters of Catholic bishops; selection of classical sermons according to several criteria), preparation of the lexicon of sermon authors and the monographic analytical-synthetic processing of the whole issue.

Subject - Intention - Text (Subjects of Poetics of Older Slovak Literature)

Subjekt – intencia – text (Podoby poetiky staršej slovenskej literatúry)

Duration: 1. 1. 2021 - 31. 12. 2024
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Rišková Lenka PhD.
Annotation:The project has the ambition to move the research on the forms of the subject in Slovak literature to its earlier periods (from Great Moravian period. to the beginning of the 19th century). In an attempt to diversify the approach, the research team is designed so that the research is adequately covered by specialists in the individual periods of older Slovak literature. In addition to the temporal extension of the research, it also aims to broaden the key concept of the subject to include other possibilities of its role in literary expression as a creative act. In this respect, the project builds on the theories of domestic and foreign provenance (the communication model of the Nitrian school, the theory of speech acts, the Cambridge school Contextual Hermeneutics). It will focus on the category of the authorial subject and the possibilities of its realization in the different functions of lit. of speech, the problem of reader's reception and the category of intentionality, i.e. author's intentionality, strategy or function of a literary work. The results have a relevant value in the interpretation of lit. texts and in defining their social function.
