MLA Austin 2016 Special Session: More-Than-Human Publics in Nineteenth-Century English Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - 11:50pm
Shun Yin Kiang/ Northeastern University

Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We especially welcome papers attending to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The diverse, if diffuse, impact this period's representations of more-than-human publics have on contemporary or subsequent readings of nineteenth-century England and its empire, and, more broadly, on animating new relations/approaches to postcolonial studies, green studies, bio-politics, more-than-humanism, etc., are of particular interest to this panel.

Josephine Hardman / UMass Amherst

MLA special session will investigate the influence of literary translation and adaptation on the development of new genres, forms, and modes of literature.

How do translated texts contribute to already-established literary canons in the receiving culture(s)? What kinds of translational choices do translators make? What is kept and what is lost in the process of translation?
