CAMERA OBSCURA AND ITS SUBJECT
Author Jonathan Crary
Summary: An annotated and commented translation of the notes, taken from Jonathan Crary, on the development of the optical models at the Early Modern time. The idea of Crary on the camera obscura as mean of generalisation of the optic as both scientific and aesthetical work is actual for art criticism. Crary, who integrates research of the scientific revolution and progress and of the practices of everyday life, links new models of the Universe and new moods of publicity. The translation aims to show productive character of the idea in different contexts of contemporary studies.

THE COMMUNICATION CRISIS AS A MEANS OF GENRE TRANSFORMATION
Author Shvets Anna, 4th year undergraduate in Arts (major in American Literature), Moscow State University of M.V.Lomonosov (Philological Faculty, Media Studies Department), Moscow, Russia, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: The author treats Herman Melville’s story “Bartleby the Scrivener” as an example of a complex communicative strategy: performing an infelicitous speech act, or, to be more precise, an abuse (according to speech act theory as introduced by J.L.Austin). The abuse is defined as a violation of a set of rules prescribed by the print medium (a monthly magazine). Given that this premise is valid, the author aims to investigate how the violation of a formula genre (a magazine story) is achieved (by what means) and how it affects the reader. Focusing on the narrator and the composition of the story, the author concludes that 1) the narrator is unreliable and thus the attention of the reader is directed to the expression plane rather than to the content plane, 2) the structure of composition is devoid of functional elements and thus forms a “gap” to be filled in by the reader. This leads to the conclusion that the story is an example of violated genre clichés which form a new genre model for reading and writing which is open to the interpretations and consequently more demanding.
Keywords: Herman Melville, the pragmatics of literary communication, genre, art experiment, the American Renaissance

Summary: The essay is on Jim Jarmusch Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) as a representation of the past, framed with mythological pattern of immortality.
