Literary Translation Studies and Comparatism

updated: 
Saturday, January 7, 2012 - 5:42am
452ºF Comparative Literature Journal

Starting from the reappraisal of literary translation that Susan Bassnett carried out at the beginning of the eighties, comparative literature as a discipline started re-evaluating its relation to this ancient practice, considering that more than once the fundamental contribution of this practice to comparative studies had been taken for granted. To a certain extent, it could be claimed that translation is a requirement and a condition of possibility for comparative literature. For this reason, Journal 452ºF decided that the monographic section of issue number seven will describe the current state of affairs in translation studies and comparatism.

Crowd control in the Renaissance

updated: 
Saturday, January 7, 2012 - 4:49am
European Society for the Study of English (ESSE)

This seminar will discuss the notion of "crowd control" from various viewpoints, distinguishing "crowd controllers" and the "crowds controlled" in different loci : on the stage, in the Church, the royal entourage, urban/rural milieus, in the British Isles or elsewhere.

The seminar, which will take place during the September 2012 ESSE conference in Istanbul, seeks to build on ideological and Foucauldian-based approaches to notions and instances of rebellion and social control, favored by critics in the 80s and 90s, by taking into account recent interdisciplinary research on manuscripts, law, iconography, film and performance studies, among others.
