[UPDATE] Translation/Transnation: Languages, Geographies, Genders (Deadline Extended)

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?

Women and Work in Literature: Special Session, Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association Conference, November 11-13, 2016, Pasadena, California

Session Description:
How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? How do race, class, sexuality and national identity affect women's ability to define both the meaning of their work and their ability to engage in work?
