COMMUNICATING THROUGH TEXT MESSAGES General Views on the Foundation of the Magazine ‘Shejzat’

Paulina Hoxha


In this article, the author introduces some general views on Shejzat, a cultural, social and artistic magazine, which managed to establish an excellent relation among the most distinguished Albanian intellectuals in immigration, the Arbëresh (Albanian immigrants in Italy) and foreign Albanologists (scholars of the Albanian language). The author points out that Shejzat started and was run for 20 years on end by a number of writers and scholars in immigration, inspired by genuine national feelings, precisely at a time when academic freedom was under the direct tutelage of the party-state.Therefore, owing to the organizational skills and tireless efforts of its founder, Ernest Koliqi, Shejzat served as a tribune of the Albanian scientific thinking and a source of information for the scientific Albanologic activities in the world. In their chronicles, they recorded social events which served as future historical and cultural documentation for an approximately 20-year- period.The reason why Albanian sages called their publication Shejzat has also been mentioned. Furthermore, it has been pointed out the position the magazine Shejzat occupied in the Albanian studies, which were by then free from politics, mediocrity and frames in which the scholars of the Albanian sciences were unfairly and undeservingly positioned in their motherland.

Keywords: magazine, publication, immigration, Shejzat, scholars.
