Gustare e parlare
Rosalia Cavalieri
Rivista Italiana di Filosofia del Linguaggio , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this article is to draw attention to the sense of taste and point out to its intrinsic linguistic character. As a sensory device associated with the appetites and desires of animals, taste has been relegated (in the philosophical tradition of Western thought) to the rank of 'lesser sense'. The act and capability of tasting, along with the pleasure of sharing the taste in a convivial environment, is one way of revealing the cognitive link between sensation and language that is a species-specific feature of humans, one of the many forms our experience assumes when revealing our 'linguistic mind'. A common cliché considers taste and all the acts linked to it (such as eating, drinking, tasting, cooking) a frivolous and trivial subject, which is foreign to the abstract and inevitably 'dry' philosophical knowledge. I will emphasize on the philosophical relevance of this subject and stress on its importance in cognitive processes, social and emotional relations, and what makes us human. Along with hearing (albeit for different reasons), taste emerges as the 'most linguistic' of all senses, which involves and elicits the linguistic act through the practice of conviviality; its species-specificity is due above all to the fact that only a soul endowed with a linguistic mind can discern and appreciate flavours. It is not by chance that humans are the only animals capable of conceiving, cooking, enjoying and recounting the feelings about a food.

Mia Couto e “o desafio do desequilibrista”: verso un nuovo concetto di bilinguismo
Silvia Cavalieri
Confluenze. Rivista di Studi Iberoamericani , 2009,
Abstract: Radically discussing a rigid concept of identity, both on a theorical level and through a fiction built on a unceasing dialogue with alterity, Mia Couto outlines a new kind of bilinguism, which comes from an aporethical thought. Avoiding to cancel contemporary Africa traumas, this bilinguism is an alternative and operating identity proposal. Mettendo radicalmente in discussione una concezione rigida dell’identità, sia sul piano teorico sia con una narrativa che si costruisce in un incessante dialogo con l’alterità, Mia Couto delinea un nuovo tipo di bilinguismo, di natura aporetica, il quale, senza obliterare i traumi di cui l’Africa contemporanea è costellata, costituisce una proposta identitaria alternativa e operativa.
Generating Functions for Hurwitz-Hodge Integrals
Renzo Cavalieri
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: In this paper we describe explicit generating functions for a large class of Hurwitz-Hodge integrals. These are integrals of tautological classes on moduli spaces of admissible covers, a (stackily) smooth compactification of the Hurwitz schemes. Admissible covers and their tautological classes are interesting mathematical objects on their own, but recently they have proved to be a useful tool for the study of the tautological ring of the moduli space of curves, and the orbifold Gromov-Witten theory of DM stacks. Our main tool is Atiyah-Bott localization: its underlying philosophy is to translate an interesting geometric problem into a purely combinatorial one.
Hodge-type integrals on moduli spaces of admissible covers
Renzo Cavalieri
Mathematics , 2004, DOI: 10.2140/gtm.2006.8.167
Abstract: We study Hodge Integrals on Moduli Spaces of Admissible Covers. Motivation for this work comes from Bryan and Pandharipande's recent work on the local GW theory of curves, where analogouos intersection numbers, computed on Moduli Spaces of Relative Stable Maps, are the structure coefficients for a Topological Quantum Field Theory. Admissible Covers provide an alternative compactification of the Moduli Space of Maps, that is smooth and doesn't contain boundary components of excessive dimension. A parallel, yet different, TQFT, can then be constructed. In this paper we compute, using localization, the relevant Hodge integrals for admissible covers of a pointed sphere of degree 2 and 3, and formulate a conjecture for general degree. In genus 0, we recover the well-known Aspinwall Morrison formula in GW theory.
A TQFT of Intersection Numbers on Moduli Spaces of Admissible Covers
Renzo Cavalieri
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: We construct a two-level weighted TQFT whose structure coefficents are equivariant intersection numbers on moduli spaces of admissible covers. Such a structure is parallel (and strictly related) to the local Gromov-Witten theory of curves of Bryan-Pandharipande. We compute explicitly the theory using techniques of localization on moduli spaces of admissible covers of a parametrized projective line. The Frobenius Algebras we obtain are one parameter deformations of the class algebra of the symmetric group S_d. In certain special cases we are able to produce explicit closed formulas for such deformations in terms of the representation theory of S_d.
