A for Aurore and ambiguity : the reception of George Sand in the Slovenian literary field
Katja Mihurko, Primož Mlačnik, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: The first part of the title of the article is borrowed from the afterword A for Aurora, A for Autobiography in the Slovenian translation of George Sand’s seminal work Histoire de ma vie, published by the feminist publishing house Delta, marking the bicentenary of French writer’s birth. 1 Analyzing the discourse on George Sand in the Slovenian literary field, we have observed a unique ambiguity compared to the discourse on other canonized authors and their Slovene reception. We argue that George Sand is a site of ambiguous discourse. Departing from the approaches of the renowned American historian Joan Wallach Scott, herself inspired by the Foucauldian epistemology, we are interested in how and why this discourse came into being, how the representations of George Sand were discursively established, and what contradictions are inherent in this debate.

From Minor Literature to Neoliberal Noir: The Detective Novels of Sergej Verc
Primož Mlačnik, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: In this article, we analyze the politics of representation in the detective tetralogy (1991-2009) of the late Slovenian and Triestinian writer Sergej Verč. Addressing several aspects of Verč’s primary literary semiotic device of schizophrenia, we trace a simultaneous literary and chronological shift from minor literature to neoliberal noir. We expose the fundamental representational ambiguity by analyzing the detective triad (murder-victim-criminal), the fetishization of detective clues, the erotization of detection, and the underlying binary oppositions. Verč’s detective novels critique the Slovenian capitalist transition but also reproduce culturally conservative representations of gender, sexuality, and family.

Abstract: Translating children's books into different cultures means not only processing the text into another language, but also transferring the level of illustration, which is an additional challenge. There, the different realities of children's lives play a big role: environment, skin colour, religion, etc. as well as cultural paradigms.
