deadline for submissions:

This roundtable seeks to tackle the vexed yet essential issue of Shakespeare in translation. Panelists are encouraged to approach this in a number of ways, such as direct translation and intercultural adaptation. Papers could discuss a particular translation of a particular play, compare and contrast previous translations, explore a more open adaptation, or discuss the aesthetic, cultural, even political issues at stake when translating Shakespeare. Papers are not restricted to textual translation, as papers on dramatic or cinematic translation and adaptation are also very much welcome.

Heritage Tourism and Race in the Early Americas

Cathy Rex, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

and even gift shops, are marketed as authentic “heritage” tourist experiences but often

ignore the complex racial dynamics that undergird them and recolonize historic peoples

Special Issue: Economies of the Gift in an Age of Austerity

Gift exchange is odd, even paradoxical. Giving requires calculation; one must consider the recipient’s need and one’s capacities. And, after the gift is given, expectation sets in. Was it well received? Will it be reciprocated? As many have noted, the gift, though ostensibly selfless, is very much an interested activity. All the calculations leading up to and following a gift exchange reveal the rules that govern a society, even the tacit ones. The gift is an object and a process. The gift moves, and it also—as a keepsake or memorial—stays put. The gift is personal, social, and cosmic.
