Abstract

At all times, the socialist society, based on Marxist-Leninist ideology principles, claimed to be the master of the truth, having into the service of itself the conviction that the truth is one and every variant that competes with it is a lie. So the socialist system, as a semantic order (the way it understands the world, the human relationship with it), takes the place of truth, becomes the truth itself, after it has falsified the truth and itself. If a system is not falsified, as it happens in a normal society, its meaning in general is always below the truth, along with other orders of alternative meanings, with which it enjoys the same status of credibility. All these orders of meanings have the same opportunity to be true, but it is not possible to be all true. If we relocate or rather extend the concept of the order of prevailing meanings from the existential plane to that lecture plane, we notice that the prevailing order of meanings is embedded and transformed into a a habit (even as a vice), wherein the arbitrary relationship between the mark (the word) and the marked (the object) penetrate obligations that arise from the dominance of the order of meanings in power. This means that within the discourse there is the possibility that the prevailing meanings of the socialist order can guarantee themselves privileged and automatic places and positions.

Keywords: socialist realism, order of meaning, discourse automation, mark, the marked

TEACHING SHAKESPEARE AT TERTIARY LEVEL: PRIMARY AND SECONDARY BENEFITS

Abstract

Teaching Shakespeare at all levels of education (primary, secondary and tertiary) has a long history not only in English but in non-English speaking countries as well. The inclusion of mandatory courses on Shakespeare in the curriculum of university studies of English as a second/foreign language has proven to be particularly beneficial and worthwhile, although some concerns are voiced about the outdatedness of Shakespeare‘s works. What we propose in this paper is that Shakespeare should be preserved in the curriculum of English majors, especially in the curriculum of English majors of EFL as the benefits for the students are, in fact, multifarious. In fact, on the basis of careful class observation, introspection and self- evaluation, as well as students’ feedback, what we suggest here is that there are two types of benefits of teaching Shakespeare at university level – primary and secondary benefits. The former affect students’ knowledge of the English language, i.e. improve the development of students’ language skills (writing, reading, speaking and listening). The latter are more general and influence the development of students’ personality by improving their thinking processes, emotional intelligence and cultural awareness. All of these, we believe, are pivotal in generating well-rounded future English professionals who at the same time will be well-balanced individuals capable of handling all sorts of life challenges.

Keywords: Shakespeare, tertiary level, EFL, benefits
