Call for Papers: Ponying the Slovos -
Art-languages and translation corpora in literary criticism

A team of researchers based at Coventry University and the University of Birmingham have been studying how invented languages are translated, using parallel corpus techniques and comparing translations of Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange.

We now invite papers for a special one-day symposium event to be held at Coventry University on 18/3/2016, which will explore and expand upon all the various contexts of this interdisciplinary study.

Possible topics include:

"Terrible Beauty" (April 15 -17, 2016) [Updated]

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - 1:08pm
University of Virginia

We take our title from W. B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916" to invite new takes on an old tune: the relation of aesthetics to politics. This three-day graduate conference at the University of Virginia, featuring poet Paul Muldoon as keynote speaker, will mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and invite fresh thinking about how art rises through its occasions.

Today it has become a commonplace within the academy that human artifacts—artistic or otherwise—be considered within the social and material contexts of their production. As Rita Felski has observed, "What word ["context"] could be more ubiquitous in literary and cultural studies: more earnestly invoked, more diligently defended, more devoutly kowtowed to?"

The International Gothic Association

The International Gothic Association (IGA) unites teachers, scholars, and students from around the world interested in Gothic fiction, drama, poetry, art, film, and other forms from the eighteenth century on (including the prior sources of Gothic). Its purpose is to exchange and expand knowledge of and research on the Gothic as widely and effectively as possible. In line with this objective, the postgraduate/graduate community of IGA, known as IGA Postgrads, encourages its members to contribute to the ever expanding online information repository about the Gothic through its Postgraduate blog. Every month, the blog features posts by a different graduate student working in the field of the Gothic, across time periods, geographies and disciplines.
