(Un)restrained Intentions: Translation and Adaptation in Literature and Culture

updated: 
Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 9:47am
Department of English, McGill University

Translation and adaptation are important sites of contestation for theory and philosophical inquiry, especially in the current atmosphere of globalization, intercultural interaction, and cultural exchange. Is the translator a "traitor," as the Italian proverb tells us? Or is the translator what L.R. Lind imagines to be "a man without a country [lingering] upon national boundaries, seeking what he may bring home to that strange limbo that lies between one tongue and another"? What does it mean to adapt artistic materials from one cultural context to another? What are the political implications of such an exchange? How do artists overcome linguistic or artistic incommensurability?

Dr. Kenneth Chan / The CEA Critic / University of Northern Colorado

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death and the beginning of his incredible legacy, this special teaching issue is devoted to all things Shakespeare—why we teach him, how we teach him, what primary sources we use, and some innovative pedagogy that helps our students connect with him.

Guest editor Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant on National Education at the Folger Shakespeare Library and former instructor at Stony Brook University, seeks articles that shed light on how we prepare those who will be teaching Shakespeare to the next generation of middle and high school students and what innovative ways we use to teach Shakespeare to college students.

The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities March 10-11 2016

updated: 
Thursday, November 5, 2015 - 2:01pm
13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
