O. Zyma
Economics of Development , 2010,
Abstract: The carnival has always been aimed at getting emotional pleasure by acting and theatricalization. When organizing carnival tours one should take into account a number of tourists` requirements:hotel location – near the place where carnival events are taking place;presence of restaurants and quality food;hotel architecture ancient style;room interior and colour spectrum;a number of service staff;presence of shops or rentals of carnival costumes.The most popular South-American carnival is the one in Rio de Janeiro where only the tribunes of specially built dance floor accommodate over 850000 spectators. The biggest carnivals in North America are "West Indian carnival" in New York (3 million), "Caribbean carnival" in Toronto (1,5 million), winter carnival in St. Paul (USA).In Europe most of tourists are attracted by carnivals in London (up to 2 million people), Cologne (over 1,5 million people), Berlin (carnival of world cultures – about 1,5 million people), Nice (over 1 million people). Venetian, Roman, Valencia, Avignon, Lyons, Cologne and Nuremberg are considered the biggest in Europe. There are large carnivals in Africa (RSA, Angola), South Eastern Asia, and Australia.There are several reasons for carnivals popularity. First, any festivity is an effective recreation and people used the opportunity to rest after everyday work. Second, the carnival of later Middle Ages and the Renaissance was a specific protest against the church and royal power as well as the official culture. Third, the carnival is a holiday of permissiveness when a person ignored limitations and bans of the everyday life and could meet most of his/her physiologic and spiritual needs.
I Love You so Much I Have to Kill You:Eros and Thanatos in Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories
Studii de Stiinta si Cultura , 2011,
Abstract: The paper aims at discussing the two overarching topics of Carter’s short story collection: love and death. The primary focus is on the language and the imagery in the texts, and the metaphors and symbols employed. Special attention will be given to the images of food and eating habits as they are contrasted with or mirror the images of the body and the sexual act, the carnal aspect of both the characters and the situations being emphasized. In connection to this, something will be said about how the author uses recurrent symbols such as smells, colors and flowers.

Carnival and Comedy: on Bakhtin's Misreading of Boccaccio
Adrian Stevens
Opticon1826 , 2007, DOI: 10.5334/opt.030707
Abstract: Bakhtin’s theory of carnival as it is developed in the two seminal studies Rabelais and his World and Problems of Dostoevsky’s Poetics has impacted on a variety of disciplines. Although essentially literary in conception, it claims a historical underpinning. Bakhtin’s fundamental premise is that carnival, understood as the ‘sum total of all diverse festivities, rituals and forms of a carnival type’, was a historical and cultural phenomenon of incalculable importance for the development of European comic narrative from classical antiquity onwards.
Disrupting the nation : gender transformations in the Trinidad Carnival
Patricia A. De Freitas
New West Indian Guide , 1999,
Abstract: Author uses the presence and performance of women in Trinidad's Carnival, and the narratives surrounding them, to comprehend the linkages between Carnival and the Trinidadian national identity, between gender and the nationalist project. She contends that the public debates surrounding the perceived 'feminization' of Carnival are highly charged because it both exposes the dilemma of post-colonial nation-building and strikes at the heart of the nationalist project.

Babali Anna
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2012, DOI: 10.2298/gei1202229b
Abstract: The Boules of Naousa is taking place during the Carnival period. It is a dance event that incorporates a variety of elements from Greek history, tradition and religion. This paper describes the event, with reference to the special costumes, and the specific songs and dances that this includes. It also endeavors to retrieve its connection with Ancient Times, Byzantine Times, and later years, shaping an amalgam of influences and conceptions. Finally, it goes beyond the surface, trying to determine the meaning of this dance event, not as a simple custom, as most scholars face it, but as a reflection of Greek identity.
Love and Prosociality  [PDF]
Lumír Ries
Pedagogicka Orientace , 2011,
Abstract: The paper deals with pedagogic love in relation to prosociality in education.The word love keeps disappearing from pedagogic texts that are one-sidedly orientedtowards scientism. However, significant pedagogues of both the past and the presenttimes consider love to be the basis of any kind of education. While prosociality primarilyaffects the behavioural facet of human relations, love is aimed at the innermost level.It is necessary to look for the great truths about the depth of the anthropologicalphenomenon called love in philosophy. Philosophical beliefs concerning the role oflove in human life, in man’s individual and social existence, opinions of thinkers frromthe ancient times until today, provide pedagogy with the starting point leading towardsunderstanding the role of love in the sphere of education.
A Study of Aging and Love in “The Bear Came over the Mountain”  [PDF]
Ping Wei, Yu Tang
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/als.2015.32006
Abstract: Alice Munro, Canadian author and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013, has written a number of short stories. Her short story, “The Bear Came over the Mountain”, circles around an old couple, Grant and Fiona. The story tells of an evolution of love under the background of aging. The love and aging interweave and collide with each other to generate the great theme of the story—love evolves with time and it will finally defeat aging. This paper attempts to analyze the components and structure of love at different stages and illustrate how love evolves in time and how it survives the battle against aging.
“Love” Phenomenon and Neurobiology of Love Relations  [PDF]
Ali Evren Tufan,?rem Yalu?
Psikiyatride Guncel Yaklasimlar , 2010,
Abstract: The biology; especially the neurobiological features of the “love” phenomenon has recently started to attract attention. Love relations and attachment, which is closely related with them, are known to be important in health and disease. Love and love relations are found to be complex neurobiological phenomena based on activation of the limbic system of the brain. Those processes involve oxytocin, vasopressin, dopamine and serotonergic functions. Additionally, endorphine and endogenous opiate systems as well as nitrous oxide play role in those processes. The stages of love and love relations may demonstrate different neurochemical and neurophysiological features and may partially overlap with m aternal, romantic and sexual love and attachments. The aim of this article is to evaluate the common neurobiological pathways underlying the “love” phenomenon as well as their importance in medicine and health.
