2012 PAMLA Special Topics Session. "The Art of Translation --Spanish & English. The Re-creation of A Literary Text" (19-21 Oct., Seattle)
In recent years we have witnessed a substantial recognition and a clear academic conceptualization of the literary translation and the way translators deal with the cultural and linguistic nuances that surround a literary text. Papers for this session will focus on shifts in the field with particular attention to the role of the literary translator in the process of restructuring and redefining translation as a solid scholarly discipline.
Editors Andrea Wood, PhD and Brandy Schillace, PhD would like to encourage article submissions to an upcoming book collection.

--the home, hospital, and asylum
--the wounded body or soul
--pathographies, case studies, patient-authored narratives
