Vincenzo Idone Cassone, Jenny Ponzo, Mattia Thibault (2020 Eds.) Languagescapes. Ancient and Artificial Languages in Today’s Culture (Aracne, Rome)
Ancient and artificial languages have many roles and uses across cultures and textual genres. Far from sterile or dead, they are highly productive cultural artefacts. By exploring case studies pertaining to religion, literature, music, video games, cinema, and social media, we attempt to map and understand them. This volume collects works by specialists in semiotics, linguistics, media and literary studies, philosophy, history of religions and culture.
Essays by: Andrea Bianchi, Ilaria Fiorentini, James Hamrick, Martin Lehnert, Gabriele Marino, Markus May, Simona Stano, Bruno Surace, Andrea Valle, Ugo Volli, Françoise Waquet, Robert Yelle.
