Art-languages and translation corpora in literary criticism
A team of researchers based at Coventry University and the University of Birmingham have been studying how invented languages are translated, using parallel corpus techniques and comparing translations of Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange.
We now invite papers for a special one-day symposium event to be held at Coventry University on 18/3/2016, which will explore and expand upon all the various contexts of this interdisciplinary study.
Possible topics include:
The Texas Center for Working-Class Studies, housed at Collin College, just north of Dallas, is pleased to announce a one-day Working-Class Studies conference for interested scholars and students. The conference will consist of panels in a range of disciplines and on a variety of issues related to social class and labor issues, both historical and contemporary. The keynote speaker will be noted Working-Class Studies scholar Dr. Sherry Linkon, Professor of English at Georgetown University. Dr. Linkon is the author of several books, including New Working-Class Studies, Steeltown U.S.A.: Work and Memory in Youngstown, and Teaching Working Class.
We take our title from W. B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916" to invite new takes on an old tune: the relation of aesthetics to politics. This three-day graduate conference at the University of Virginia, featuring poet Paul Muldoon as keynote speaker, will mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and invite fresh thinking about how art rises through its occasions.
Today it has become a commonplace within the academy that human artifacts—artistic or otherwise—be considered within the social and material contexts of their production. As Rita Felski has observed, "What word ["context"] could be more ubiquitous in literary and cultural studies: more earnestly invoked, more diligently defended, more devoutly kowtowed to?"

Postcolonial theory has been engaged in uncovering and castigating the legacies of the colonial contact on the colonized. This has seen a lot of discussions on postcolonial theory which focus on the material effects of colonialism such as the identity crisis occasioned by the loss of culture, the new boundaries created by colonialism and which continue to have far-reaching effects decades after the formal demise of colonialism, and the gross exploitation and humiliation of the colonized which has resulted in the inferiority complex and a loss of self- esteem. Postcolonial theory in a general sense therefore often involves the response of the colonized to the cultural and human consequences of colonial control.
