Conceptualization of Cultural Competence in Narrative Fiction

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, IX (2), p. 209-221
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:The paper attempts to prove that ‘competence’ is a social fact, culturally learned through imitative action, formal education or coercion. Literature produces reaction expressed in opinion, attitude, behaviour that all rationalize cultural experience and social reality. Fictional existence of cultural ‘competence’ comes down to language use, devising closed narrative meaning systems, discursively recommended as literariness by universal, basic appreciation of the story. Cultural ‘competence’ formalizes the rules of social interaction through collective narrative and rhetorical procedure, acting in popular terms as foundation of public normativity and assessment.
Key words:contemporary novel, cultural competence, pragmatism, constructivism, essentialism, literariness, ideology
