The topic of the new issue of Philologia Estonica Tallinnensis is „Intermediality of Literature”. Relations between literature and other media are observed; the focus is primarily on the movement of literary texts over the borders of the media. Research of intermediality requires interdisciplinary approach, and the authors of this issue also include researchers of literature, theatre and dance, and the topics range from the use of folk tradition to the latest forms of digital literature.

Tanel Lepsoo examines the manifestation of evil in A. H. Tammsaare’s novel „Põrgupõhja uus Vanapagan” („The New Devil of Hellsbottom”) and its screen version, and in Andrus Kivirähk’s novel „Rehepapp ehk november” and Rainer Sarnet’s film based on the novel. Piret Kruuspere writes about the relations of Estonian drama and theatre with national memory culture, including dramaturgic interpretations of historical prose and processing of the past using the forms of drama and staging. Madli Pesti analyses the development of the concept of physical theatre by the example of the production „Eine murul” by VAT Theatre in her article. Heili Einasto undertakes to address ballets on the theme of Kalevipoeg from the year 1934 until today and focuses in her comparative approach on how national and gender stereotypes have manifested themselves on dance stage. Anneli Mihkelev examines the mythological character of kratt (treasure-bearer) from Estonian folklore who has spread from the folk tradition to fiction, theatre and film. Anneli Kõvamees writes about the series of travelogues published by Petrone Print publishing company, considers the phenomenon of the series and attempts at bringing clarity in terms of its genre. Piret Viires focuses on relations between literature and computer technology, analyses digital literature, its connections with digital humanities, various definitions and periodisation, and discusses the social media literature.

This issue contains articles in Estonian with abstracts in English.

Estonian Yearbook of Military History (in English)
Visions of War. Experience, Imagination and Predictions of War in the Past and the Present

Editor: Kaarel Piirimäe

10 €

Buy

The popular maxim holds that generals and, by extension, their armies always plan for the previous war. The wide-ranging chapters of this volume show the limits of this truism. There is much more to thinking about future war: it is a dynamic and on-going process, influenced by a myriad of political, military, social, economic and cultural shifts. The imagining of future war is an important factor and often a causal element in historical processes, whether or not it is immediately followed by war. The study of the thinking about and the planning for wars in the past not only opens a window on wider societal conceptions and preoccupations at the time but is also a basis for thinking about, and hopefully implementing, military changes in peacetime.

This issue of the Estonian Yearbook of Military History includes a preface on the study of war by Martin van Creveld, and chapters by Gary Baines, Benedict von Bremen, Tobias J. Burgers, General Michael H. Clemmesen, Oliver B. Hemmerle, Robert A. Jacobs, Michael Jung, Iain MacInnes, Kaarel Piirimäe, Alon Posner and Blaž Torkar. The articles discuss a wide range of subjects: Mediaval strategy and tactics, concepts and imaginations of decisive battles and total wars in the 19th and 20th centuries, general staffs and war plans before the First World War and before the Second World  War, visions of a conventional and nuclear Third World War during the Cold War, historical analogies in thinking and speaking about war, and new technologies and present trends in the development of warfare.

The editor of the issue is Kaarel Piirimäe, the editor in chief of the yearbook is Toomas Hiio.

Linguistic, Social and Cognitive Aspects of Language and Multilingualism
Editor-in-Chief: Reili Argus
Editor: Anna Verschik

7,90 €

Buy 

This year's topic of Philologia Estonica Tallinnensis, a collection by international authors, is "Linguistic, social and cognitive aspects of language contact and multilingualism".

No language exists in isolation without contacts with other languages; whether it is a peripheral fact for the researcher, or, on the contrary, the main object of study, is another matter. Most articles included in this volume are focused on language contacts having Estonian language as one of the parties.

The article by Lea Meriläinen, Helka Riionheimo, Päivi Kuusi and Hanna Lantto provides an overview of the theories of loan translations. Jim Hlavac approaches loan translations in Macedonian-English bilingual speech from the angle of contact linguistics. Virve Vihman's and Jim Hlavac's articles test theoretical models known in contact linguistics and state that in the process of language contacts, innovations which do not follow the grammar of either language are born. Anette Ross covers the dialect of the Roma living in Estonia in the context of other Roma language forms. Kristiina Praakli's article which analyses the social group of Estonians living in Finland from the viewpoint of pragmatics, and Helin Kase's study on the impact of English in Estonian fashion blogs are centered on multilingual virtual communication. Elīna Joenurma examines Estonian-Latvian bilingual speech, following the code-copying model, and focuses on the impact in both directions. Daria Bahtina-Jantsikene and Ad Backus treat Estonian-Russian receptive bilingualism, using experimental methodology.
