The Culture of (Im)Pudicity: A Romanian Case Study

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


Shame and pudicity are key concepts in our daily human interaction. Veiling and unveiling, showing or hiding are not only constitutive social conventions or public "laws" in our societies, but also a way of expressing our emotional structure in accordance to the nature of our inner Self and our relations within a group.

This book is concerned with the theoretical and practical approaches of the concepts of "shame" and "(im)pudicity". It responds to the eternal provoking question of how a ground concept could transgress its field of analysis and immerge within literature, linguistics, translation studies, philosophy and journalism. Featuring essays from specialists in these fields, this book is surprisingly defining for the formation of the Romanian modern culture, both past and future, demonstrating its European cultural vocation.
