Translation is/in/as World Literature: the Hermeneutic Model

From the most sophisticated theoretical discourses to the most banal clichés, translation continues to be understood in terms of such marital metaphors as fidelity and faithfulness. Lawrence Venuti theorizes this way of looking at translation as instrumentalism. According to Venuti, the instrumentalist model of translation is concerned with “the reproduction or transfer of an invariant that is contained in or caused by the source text, an invariant form, meaning, or effect.” Since any meaning of any text is contingent upon various values and functions that a source text supports in its original language, no translation can provide “direct or unmediated access” to it.

Anglo Saxonica is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes original and innovative research on a variety of issues relevant to the study of English(es), broadly understood both as language and as all the literatures and cultures of the English-speaking world. In so doing, Anglo Saxonica also promotes dialogue among English-speaking geocultural areas. Its editorial policy promotes the thematic cohesion of each volume, open to different academic approaches on current issues in English and American studies, including original research articles, reviews, interviews and selections of creative writing. The journal also publishes special issues with a particular thematic focus that are guest-edited by leading scholars in the field.

The Other #MeToos

Ever since the inception of #MeToo, conversations have largely circled around the movement as it evolved and exists in the United States. Despite multiple sessions on #MeToo at multiple conferences, I failed to find any that specifically focuses on the reception, translation, and adaptation of #MeToo in non-Western and postcolonial contexts. To fill this gap, this session, “The Other #MeToos,” aims to explore how #MeToo, a popularly Western-centric feminist movement, translates to religiously, geographically, politically, and academically Othered places and Othered women.

Climate Fictions / Indigenous Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2019 - 10:50am
University of Cambridge
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Critical Indigenous studies can neither be perceived as niche, nor trivialized as topical. In the way climate-capitalism has become an existential threat, a sincere engagement with Indigenous knowledges has become ineluctable. This conference seeks to initiate a multidisciplinary conversation on climate change, as conceived by, and re-inscribed within, Indigenous literatures. So far within the small domain of English Humanities, contemporary climate fiction by Indigenous authors have presented an urgent need to converse with scientific and social-scientific approaches to climate change.
