Loengusari "Töid märgisüsteemide alalt"
Iga kolmapäev, kell 16.15
Tartu Ülikool, Jakobi 2-306

Tartu Ülikooli semiootika osakond tähistab sel semestril ajakirja “Töid märgisüsteemide alalt” 50. juubelit rea üritustega, millel saate silma peal hoida lehel https://www.facebook.com/sisyst50.

Juubeliürituste rea avame loengusarjaga “Loenguid märgisüsteemide alalt”. Sari pole juubilarilt inspiratsiooni saanud üksnes oma nime, vaid ka sisu jaoks, tuues kokku interdistsiplinaarsed perspektiivid erinevatele semiootika huviorbiiti jäävatele teemadele. Esinejateks on oma valdkondade silmapaistvad esindajad Tartust, Tallinnast ja väljastpooltki: vene filoloog ja Lotmani arhiivi uurija Igor Pilshchikov, ajaloolased Carlo Ginzburg ja Marek Tamm, orientalist Märt Läänemets, kultuuripsühholoog Peeter Tulviste, narratoloog Marina Grišakova , meediauurija Indrek Ibrus, kirjanikud Berk Vaher ja Valdur Mikita, arheoloog Valter Lang, vene filoloog Ljubov Kisseljova, kultuurisemiootikud Daniele Monticelli, Mihhail Lotman ja Peeter Torop ja kirjandussemiootik Ülle Pärli.

Loengusari leiab aset igal kolmapäeval kell 16:15 semiootika osakonnas, Jakobi 2-306.
Septembrikuisteks esinejateks on Mihhail Lotman (10. september), Igor Pilshchikov (17. september) ja Carlo Ginzburg (24. september).

Sarja avaloengu peab kultuurisemiootik Mihhail Lotman teemal "Tartu semiootika intellektuaalsed lätted”.
Loengus räägitakse koolkondadest vene kirjandusteaduses 1920.-1950. aastatel (formalistid ja antiformalistid: Gukovski, Bahtin jt). Samuti folkloristikas (Propp ja Asadovski) ja keeleteaduses. Lääne mõjud: Saussure, Wiener. Riivamisi käsitletakse semiootika ja filosoofia vahekorda.

Ajaloolistel radadel jätkab ka Igor Pilshchikov loenguga "The Tartu-Moscow School of Semiotics in Transnational Perspective” (loeng on inglise keeles).
The lecture will focus on: a) the evolution of structural and semiotic approaches to languages, literatures and cultures in Estonia, and the role of "Sign Systems Studies"; b) the continuity and transfer of ideas and organizational forms between Russian formalism, Polish formalism, Czech interwar structuralism and, finally, post-WWII Estonian, Russian, Italian, and French structuralism and semiotics; c) the influence of TMS on literary theory and semiotics of culture in Europe and worldwide, and the prospects for its recalibration in the context of contemporary cultural and literary theory.

Carlo Ginzburg peab loengu teemal "Dialogue as Fight, Dialogue as Challenge” (loeng on inglise keels)
Abstract. For many years, I have been trying to develop in many different directions Mikhail Bakhtin's reflections on the dialogic dimension. I would like to illustrate this point, focusing on a few case studies, related to my own research as a historian.

Truth and Proof

Thinking Historically with Carlo Ginzburg
September 19–20, 2014, Tallinn University

Graduate course of the Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts
2 ECTS credits

Organized by the Estonian Institute of Humanities, Tallinn University, and Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts

This intensive seminar invites Ph.D. (and advanced M.A.) students in various fields of cultural research to discuss together with Prof. Carlo Ginzburg, one of the most original and influential historians of our time, the current issues of cultural history and culture studies. The seminar, consisting of lectures and discussions, addresses more specifically the complex relationship between truth and proof, both in historical and epistemological terms.

The general aim of this seminar is an interdisciplinary discussion of current research topics methodologies in culture studies, the enhancement of international cooperation in scholarship, and the involvement of young researchers or graduate students in an academic exchange of ideas that would go beyond the usual conference or lecture outline. The participants will include, in addition to prof. Ginzburg, five established Estonian scholars and about twenty-five doctoral students.
Carlo Ginzburg (born in Turin in 1939) is a Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Los Angeles, author of a considerable oeuvre, comprising about twenty books. He has ranged very widely in his scholarly work, but his main and major contributions have been made as an historian of early modern Europe. A pioneering work of microhistory, Il formaggio e i vermi (The Cheese and the Worms, 1976) remains one of the most successful and widely-imitated examples of the genre. As well as being a highly imaginative and productive historian, Professor Ginzburg has been a methodological innovator of wide influence. He has written about the nature of historical evidence in Miti emblemi spie (1986; Clues, Myths and the Historical Method, 1989), and about the idea of historical proof in History, Rhetoric and Proof (1999). He has also reflected in his historical works on the nature of his own practice, highlighting in particular the importance of the connections between anthropology and cultural history.

Cultural Patterns and Life Stories
In memoriam Aili Aarelaid-Tart (1947-2014)
Konverents Tallinna Ülikoolis 27. august 2014, A-242 (Astra maja, Narva mnt 29)

9. jaanuaril 2014 lahkus Eesti mainekas kultuuriuurija Aili Aarelaid-Tart, Tallinna Ülikooli juhtivteadur ning Nüüdiskultuuri Keskuse looja ja juhataja 1995. aastast. 27. augustil korraldab Tallinna Ülikooli Eesti Humanitaarinstituudi Nüüdiskultuuri keskus tema mälestuseks konverentsi, kuhu on kutsutud rahvusvahelise mainega tunnustatud eluloouurijad, et avaldada austust Aili Aarelaiu elutööle ning arutleda eluloouurimuse aktuaalsetel teemadel.

Aili Aarelaid-Tart pühendas ja panustas palju Eesti elulugude uurimisse, kuuludes aastaid ka Euroopa Sotsioloogide Assotsiatsiooni biograafilise uurimisvõrgustiku juhatusse. Elulugude uurimises leidis Aarelaid-Tart väljundi inimeste eluteede järskude ajapöörete – ellujäämisstrateegiate – jäädvustamiseks ja seletamiseks. Elulood on midagi enamat kui üksikute eluteed ja nendel saavutatu. Oma elust jutustades kinnistame ja loome me oma identiteeti, aga ka oma ajastut, põlvkondlikkust ning sellest tulenevaid sotsiaalseid seoseid. „Kultuuriloolaste ülesandeks ongi konkreetse sotsiaalse ajajärgu „mälu” taastada võimalikult erinevaid jäädvustamisvahendeid silmas pidades,” kirjutab ta oma raamatus „Rahva mälumustrid” (1990).

27. augustil toimuval konverentsil kõnelevad Aili Aarelaid-Tarti kolleegid ja kaasamõtlejad.

Konverents on rahvusvaheline ning konverentsi keeleks on inglise keel. (vt. programmi allpool)

Soovijatel palume registreerida tuulip@ehi.ee hiljemalt 18. augustiks.
Kinnituskirjad registreerimise registreerimise kohta saadetakse hiljemalt 21. augustiks.

Responsibility and authority in drinking: Arctic workshop of the University of Tartu
30–31 May, 2014
Ülikooli 16-102
Department of Ethnology

Last May we successfully held an international workshop on drinking alcohol as sociocultural practice in the Arctic. Our focus was on drinking both in indigenous and non-indigenous communities. The High North is notorious for the excessive use of alcohol and is associated primarily with the negative themes like alcohol related injuries, violence, suicide, decline of indigenous traditions, culture shock and other misfortunes that result from binge-drinking. Despite the scholarly take and state institutions’ efforts to limit alcohol use, most people still continue to drink, an activity associated not only with death and loss but also with leisure, pleasure and celebration. Alcohol is deeply embedded within many rituals such as the greeting of an honoured guest, a demonstration of masculinity or as a part of religious ceremony.
Inspired by lively discussions at the last workshop, we decided to continue with the same topic from a slightly different angle. The aim is to widen both the scope as well as the geographic area. Our particular interest lies in the dimensions of morality and power related to the use of alcohol and the concept of (ir)responsibility both inside the communities as well as in the state discourse.

Martin Rundkvisti avalik loeng
7. mai 2014, kell 16.15
Jakobi 2-213, Tartu Ülikool

"From burial data to chronology and social interpretation via computer-aided statistics"

A furnished burial speaks to us about many things. Some of the more accessible parameters are the point in time when the funeral took place, how expensive the funeral was, the gender and other social roles of the deceased, and within what sort of religious framework the funeral was staged. For the archaeologist who wants to study any one of these parameters, it is far more powerful to base one’s arguments on a large sample of burials than on just a few cases. And with a sufficiently large sample, computer-aided statistics offer the swiftest and clearest way to identify and examine patterns in the data. Examples in the talk are taken from Gotland in the era AD 400-1100.

Martin Rundkvist on rahvusvaheliselt üks tuntumaid Rootsi noorema põlvkonna uurijaid. Ta töötab ajakirja Fornvännen tegevtoimetajana ning on Chesteri ülikooli külalisteadur. Tema blogi Aardvarchaeology on saanud tunnustuse kui Web's Top-5 archaeology blogs. Martin Rundkvist iseloomustab ennast kui empiirikut ja skeptikut: "Empirical archaeology, plainly spoken and open to all, is what this Swede is about".

March 7-9, 2014, Tartu

Hosting Institutions: Nordic Summer University research circle Heterologies of the Everyday; Estonian Literary Museum; University of Tartu; Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts, Centre of Excellence in Cultural Theory.
The last decade has witnessed a shift of academic interest from the individual or collective subject towards emotional states, moods, and affects. Motivated by ‘the affective turn’ in the human sciences, this interdisciplinary seminar will explore the role of moods, affects and attunements in different spheres connected to everyday existence. Different problems in the sphere of the everyday will be discussed, including natural and built environments, cultural representations, entertainment, advertising, and human relations.

Invited speakers include: Ben Highmore (University of Sussex),Jonathan Flatley (Wayne State University), Tim Edensor (Manchester Metropolitan University), Epp Annus (Estonian Literary Museum / Ohio State University), Britta Brenna (University of Oslo), Anna-Lena Carlsson (Maelardalen University), Carsten Friberg (Aalborg University), Ossi Naukkarinen (Aalto University), Xavier Pla(University of Girona), Noora Pyyry (University of Helsinki), Bryony Randall (University of Glasgow), Dan Eugen Ratiu (Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca), Jennie Schaeffer (Maelardalen University),Tõnu Viik (Tallinn University), Raine Vasquez (Helsinki University).

Seminar consists of:
1) lectures and discussions conducted by Estonian and guest lecturers;
2) six thematic sessions (phenomenology of moods and affects; affective places and spaces; everyday aesthetics; intensified everyday life in fiction and visual arts; the role of affect in late modernity; moods, mediation and public memory).
The Course will be held in conjunction with the Winter symposium organized by the Nordic Summer University research circle Heterologies of the Everyday. The event is supported by the European Union Structural Assistance (Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts and the Centre of Excellence in Cultural Theory) and by Nordic Council of Ministers (Nordic Summer University Network).

4th Winter School of GSCSA "Absence, Presence, Distance: Ways of Seeing the Past"

January 20-24, 2014, Tallinn

The fourth Winter School of the Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts focuses on our relations with the past, assuming that the way we think about the past shapes the way we view both the present and the future. Questions of ‘distance’, ‘absence’ and ‘presence’ have been debated in a number of disciplines, including visual studies, history, philosophy, cultural theory, and anthropology. In the complex matter of constructing a past that we can engage with problems of proximity and distance, presence and absence, arise at a multitude of levels – temporal, spatial, visual, cognitive, esthetical and other. ‘Representation’, the main conceptual tool in culture studies and arts, means strictly speaking a making present of, or the granting of presence (again) to something that is absent. However, this immediately raises the question of what it might mean to give presence to something that is absent; how could something possibly be present in its absence. Therefore, we invite the participants of the Winter School to revisit the traditional distinction between absence and presence; to discuss how far from an object or event do we need to be to see it clearly; to debate what does it actually mean for something or someone to be ‘past’.

Please find more information about the programme, registration and requirements on winter school homepage.

IN MEMORIAM Aili Aarelaid-Tart (2.05.1947 - 9.01.2014)

9. jaanuaril 2014. aastal suri mainekas Eesti kultuuriuurija, Tallinna Ülikooli juhtivteadur ning nüüdiskultuuri keskuse looja ja juhataja Aili Aarelaid-Tart.
2. mail 1947. aastal sündinud Aili Aarelaid-Tarti elutöö oli suunatud eesti kultuuri kandvate mehhanismide otsinguile. Kultuuritrauma teooria, elulooline meetod, kultuurimälu ning oma eluloo endale sobivaks jutustamine olid tema märksõnad. Viimastel aastatel keskendus ta põlvkondlikele ilmingutele eesti kultuuris ning 2012. aastal ilmus tema eestvedamisel kogumik „Nullindate kultuur“ kahes köites. Tema raamatutest omavad suuremat kaalu 2006. aastal ilmunud "Kultuuritrauma ja elulood" (Cultural Trauma and Life Stories), 1998. aastast pärinev „Ikka kultuurile mõeldes“ ning 1990. aastal ilmunud „Rahva mälumustrid“.
Aili Aarelaid-Tart oli 1988. aasta legendaarse loomeliitude pleenumi ekspertide seas. 1991-1999 oli ta UNESCO Eesti Rahvuskomisjoni nõukogu liige. 2002. aastal pälvis ta oma tegevuse eest "Valgetähe" teeneteklassi medali.
