Presentato alla 5a edizione di SCIECONF (International Virtual Conference on Advanced Scientific Results – 2017; vedi post) nella sezione Educational sciences, THE ‘ACTIVE STAGE’: Whereabouts in Writing Processes affronta le dinamiche della scrittura e della lettura introducendo un nuovo strumento di comprensione e analisi delle storie nel momento del loro concepimento. Si tratta del “palcoscenico attivo”, una pratica griglia interpretativa mutuata dal concetto di “campo analitico”, introdotto per la prima volta dai coniugi Madeleine e Willy Baranger, che permette la fluida osservazione del “lettore”, dell’“autore” e di tutti gli altri “attori” del diagramma narrativo descritto nel lontano 1978 da Seymour Chatman.

Abstract

This study shows how the concept of „field‟ borrowed and aptly reviewed from the psychoanalytic perspective fits the needs of writing educational settings, and creative writing workshops in particular. Practical examples and theoretical observations from totally different contexts are discussed in the framework of the empirical studies of literature, reporting some emblematical tests provided by “Bartleby – Practices of Writing and Reading”, a project wholly committed to an uninterrupted field testing of new methods and procedures for creative writing. Venturing into the „sensitive space‟ wide opened by the gestures of reading and writing, in fact, especially at the starting point of a project, asks for a skill which consists in recognizing and handling multiple points of view. Correctly reshaped into the idea of active stage, being aware of the plurality of simultaneous conceptual (psychic) full-stage “performances” the syntagma alludes to – included the alternative meaning represented by „phase‟, which works anyway – the „active stage‟ model offers a concrete frame to locate whereabouts we are from or are going to while writing, insomuch as to improve the meanings mining a writing project encounters or stumbles upon along its way.
