The Confidential Clerk: Journal of the Centre for Victorian Studies

The Confidential Clerk (ISSN 2454-6100), an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of the Centre for Victorian Studies, Jadavpur University, seeks contributions for its 2015/16 issue, 'Realizing the Unreal: Victorian Speculative Fiction in Context'. The issue will focus on Victorian speculative fiction and its generic, thematic, historical, and cultural contexts. Victorian speculative fiction is usually described as 'a flight from the real'; but we welcome submissions that go beyond this understanding to show how the Victorian imagination engages with the unreality of the real or creates alternative realities of the unreal in different forms of speculative fiction.

Translation/Transnation: Languages, Geographies, Genders

Central to the Latin word translatio is the notion of 'carrying across' or crossing boundaries. Translation is fundamental to effective human communication, but translation requires more than just moving between two languages. When we translate, we cross many kinds of boundaries – political, linguistic, geographic, and gendered. Thus, whether literary, linguistic, media-based, or artistic, communicative acts require reliable interpreters in order to "carry across" their intended meanings. Yet, this "carrying across" can result in unintended loss and gain, even with the most skillful of interpreters. When a literary work, a piece of art, an idea, or a system moves across boundaries, what is left behind? What resists translation? What is added?

"The wonder opened up elsewhere. The things we don't do."

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth"

"Thanks to consciousness, am I not at all times elsewhere from where I am, always master of the other and capable of something else?"
