Abstract

Cuando la oralidad era imperante, siete soldados de la Monarquía sintieron la necesidad de escribir sus autobiografías en la primera mitad del siglo xvii. Entre ellos, el capitán Alonso de Contreras, cuya obra, vital, cautivó a Ortega y Gasset. Con sus plumas retrataron al Imperio, del Mediterráneo al Índico. Esa fotografía del Leviatán —el Estado Moderno—, en sus años formativos, constituye el principal propósito de este libro, en un acercamiento pragmático, inmerso en la cotidianidad, jocosa o trágica. Se siguen vidas a «salto de mata», rescatando sus sueños y tropelías, restituyendo sus vivencias y, con ellas, las de una época, así como parte de la maquinaria imperial, cuando el sol se ponía sobre la Monarquía. Todo se ensarta, en definitiva, alrededor de dos preguntas. ¿Cómo se pasó de la espada a la pluma, otro ejercicio de esgrima? ¿Cómo las dos dibujan universos, de Italia a Filipinas, pasando por España, hacia 1600-1650?

Abstract

In the 125 years of research, the legendary temple of Artemis was always the focus of the archaeological fieldwork, while the once densely built up sacred enclosure remained unexplored. Since 2009 the Austrian Archaeological Institute investigated for the first time a roman building southwest of the Temple, which was up to the present named ‘Tribune’ and whose function could be finally clarified. Due to close typological parallels as well as equipment and furnishing, the building can be identified as roman Odeion of the Early Empire.

Abstract

Some of the most pressing contemporary issues (ecological crisis, migration and integration, fragmented worldviews, social media, fake news, extremist politics and terrorism) can be understood more profoundly through how they interact with both individual and collective forces of nostalgia. Nostalgia is politics, but these politics are also interwoven with media and culture. Notwithstanding how nostalgia is used or contextualized in terms of politics and social practices, commodification or personal development, its power is primarily situated within its efficacy as a governing, influential human emotion. The vast and luminous contributions to this special issue on contemporary nostalgia are all investigating the role different aesthetic media formats (film, music, literature, computer games) plays in nostalgic negotiations with style, history, migration, love, nationalism, diaspora, irony, modernity, colonial and postcolonial discourses, and adoption. Mutually, these essays stand out as important, original, critical contributions to the expanding field of nostalgia studies and offer a valued insight on our world.
