FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 27 (2018): The Gaze
Issue 27 of FORUM seeks contributions from a wide range of disciplines concerning the gaze, recognition, and identification. All aspects of culture and identity can be said to be subject to a form of the gaze - how does an art form interact with its audience? How does the presence of the gaze affect the ownership of a medium? How is the gaze redirected in subversive art? Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Visibility and readership of subjugated narratives
Digital humanities and contemporary audiences
The #metoo movement and the male gaze
Rebecca Gould (University of Birmingham) and Kayvan Tahmasebian are seeking contributions to the Routledge Handbook of Translation and Activism.

We are particularly eager to include more contributions on political theory (Marx, Gramsci, Walter Benjamin, Fanon) in relation to translation and activism, as well as contributions addressing the following themes:
* Translators as activists
* Translators’ contributions to activism across multilingual divides
* Translating activist and political texts
