In recent years, it has become clear that 'Gothic' as a critical term has the potential to bring together varied perspectives, from numerous areas of enquiry. While there has been some interest in analysing examples of tourist experiences through a Gothic lens, this has mainly been limited to a small number of locations and disciplinary perspectives (London, Whitby and literary related subjects and approaches, for example). Thus, the topic of 'Gothic tourism' offers a new area that can be addressed from a number of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches.
We have EXTENDED THE DEADLINE for a proposed edited and refereed volume on Canadian graphic novelists and cartoonists. Dominick Grace and Eric Hoffman, editors of Dave Sim: Conversations, Chester Brown: Conversations, and Seth: Conversations for the University Press of Mississippi, are editing a collection of essays provisionally titled The Canadian Alternative: Canadian Cartoonists, Comics, and Graphic Novels. We seek previously unpublished essays addressing Canadian cartoonists/comics. Our primary interest is in "alternative" cartoonists and cartooning, narrowly defined; that is, figures associated with the underground, independent, and/or ground-level comics movements. Figures of key interest might include but are not limited to

The concept of translation is of pivotal interest in this context. When talking about "translation," we literally mean code switching. However, the term "translation" is also appropriate if one wants to describe psychological mechanisms and cultural processes.
