CFP: [Gender Studies] The Women Collector

Annalisa Zox-Weaver

This special issue of Women’s Studies will examine the woman art collector.

While there are certainly women collectors whose interests tend toward more
feminine-associated artifacts, such as jewels, fans, and lace, or work with
domestic affiliations, such as embroidery, textiles, furniture, and
glasswork, there are also women collectors who have ventured into new
areas, amassing collections that in some cases make them the twentieth
century creators of museums.

CFP: [International] 'Lost in Translation: Mediation, Adaptation and Translation

updated: 
Wednesday, February 11, 2009 - 10:08am
Claire O'Callaghan

This postgraduate conference will reflect on the broadest meanings of ‘translation’ across the
Arts and Humanities, to explore the ways in which the meaning and value of literature is affected
by translation over time or into genre, cultures and media. The specific questions this conference
aims to consider are: what, if anything, is lost in the translation of literature? Can translations,
adaptations and the mediation of works add value to our understandings of fiction, poetry or
plays? Is it possible to mediate historical ideologies and representations into the present? How
does translation affect the concept of authenticity?
