“ Mainz, Germany Dear Polyankina & readers, I don't know if I can help with "measures" but I think it may be useful to reflect a bit on conceptual matters. I am more familiar with the French "savoir faire," and though this has some usage in English, as a French phrase, the meaning of the phrase as used in English is somewhat distinct from the meaning it has in French. "Savoir-être" seems to be less frequently used even in French. In consequence, the question may arise as to whether one wants to teach a French concept or an English concept --to students of English. What comes to mind is... ” more

"The City and the Nazi Concentration Camps: Reading (In)Human Spaces"

In my dissertation, I investigate parallels, whether fictitious, perceived or remembered, between the Nazi system of concentration camps and human built environment as filtered through the survivors’ traumatic memory of the camps. By building on existing, albeit unsystematic, research by historians and art historians on the planning and architecture of Nazi concentration camps in relationship to National Socialist city planning and architecture, I analyze the uses and effects of these parallels in French literature and film produced by former political deportees. I further explore their role in establishing a distinctive relationship between reader and text in testimonial literature, as well as their role in shaping the postwar memory of the camps.

"French moraliste writing from Blaise Pascal to Joseph Joubert"

Situated somewhere between the fields of literary criticism, intellectual history, cultural history, philosophy and theology, my dissertation will study the development of French moraliste writing from the late seventeenth to the end of the eighteenth century; from the works of renowned seventeenth-century moralists such as Blaise Pascal, François de La Rochefoucauld, Jean de La Fontaine, Jean de La Bruyère, and the Marquise de Sablé, to those of eighteenth-century authors such as the Marquis de Vauvenargues, Alexis Piron, Antoine de Rivarol, Nicolas Chamfort, and Joseph Joubert. I aim to re-examine the idea that moraliste writing arose chiefly from the late-seventeenth century political context of aristocratic writers disillusioned by their loss of feudal power under absolute monarchy, and theological context of these writers' Augustinian or "Jansenist" beliefs. Contrary to these assumptions' basis in the biographies of the great moralistes of the late seventeenth century, moraliste writing continued to thrive throughout the eighteenth century in a diverse array of political and religious (or even irreligious) contexts - Royalists and Jacobins; aristocrats and bourgeois; Catholics, neo-Epicureans and neo-Stoics. What, then, motivated writers with such disparate views to use a style typified by the earlier moralistes? How was moraliste writing influenced by the social milieu with which it has become inextricably linked, the aristocratic salons organised chiefly by female hostesses? And can these writers' often cynical witticisms inspire us to moral improvement, as individuals or as a society? These are just some of the questions that I hope to address.

"Textual Mobility: The Medieval Journeys of Twelfth-Century Anglo-French Texts"

Works written in Plantagenet territory in the twelfth century traveled away from their site of production in both time and space, sometimes being copied centuries later in distant lands. Enthusiasts have long investigated the causes and contexts of the burgeoning literary production in the espace Plantagenet, but the medieval textual afterlife of texts produced in the Angevin empire has yet to be coherently studied. My study addresses this gap by tracing the mobility of a cluster of twelfth-century texts. These romans traveled between and across what we now perceive as nations, the lines of their itineraries knitting together a literary and historical past shared across Western Europe – including Britain.  I hypothesize that the transnational and enduring popularity of certain works has to do with their usefulness as sources of history in the medieval mode, when res digna memoria could be considered equal in value to res gestae. The routes texts took out of the Angevin empire created a map of shared knowledge and values validated by a common past.

If you are referring to machine-learning based language translation, an open question area is how different non-language feature sets (e.g. features of the social graph, analysis of sentiment, or other contextual factors) affect the quality of machine translation. A related and useful area is the “translation” between different levels of detail, such as glosses and the production of summaries for specific purposes.
