Lucia Amelia SALVATO, Dialogical interaction in the arts: Is social change possible through literature?


Abstract: The paper proposes to consider literary writers as a potentially powerful driver of social change. It investigates how the implicit response of the readers is made apparent by a personal habit change. The viewpoint offered emerges from an analysis of poems and narratives by contemporary German and Italian writers. The analysis used to enhance student learning caused a positive personal change within them and developed into a new way of facing further challenging interpersonal circumstances.

Keywords: Habit Change; Social Change; Implicit Dialogical Interaction; Medieval and Renaissance Art; Werner Lutz; Ada Negri; Franz Kafka.
