Evolving Stories

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 24, 2017

Stories are fluid and mutable, forever in a state of flux, and gradually developing according to their shifting surroundings. While certain features of a story endure, other elements undergo changes. Indeed, in their homology between biological and cultural adaptation, Gary Bortolotti and Linda Hutcheon (2007) highlight the importance of persistence and diversity, as persistent and diverse replicators and narratives thrive in biology and culture respectively. Through exploring the persistent elements of a story, we can examine universal themes, timeless symbols and archetypal characters. Meanwhile, the areas of diversity offer insight into the plethora of contextual components framing a story.

Authorial literary translation 

            The study of any national literary system cannot exclude a comparative approach and an investigation into the function of translations. Our aim in this monographic issue is to study works translated by leading writers in international literary cultures (not exclusively European), and then analyse the role of these translations in the formation of supranational literary canons.

The leading writers of various literary traditions have in fact very often translated foreign works themselves by turning, on occasions, to translation as a fundamental practice for personal enrichment to creative and stylistic ends.

10th Colloquium on Translation Studies in Portugal

Translating Fear

In a recent article published in The Guardian and in an upcoming book, author Pankaj Mishra argues that we are now living in the age of anger. While anger seems to be spreading globally, it often seems to result from and in fear and / or disenfranchisement. Questions such as ‘who speaks together, who breathes together, who translates?’ (Apter, 2009: 204) are in the foreground of almost every form of public discourse, shaping political concerns, new forms of identification, and redefining ways of living.
