The Detective Fiction Area welcomes proposals on all aspects and periods of mystery and detective fiction. This includes ancient and modern precursors to Poe's "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" (1841), as well as successors working in the multitude of sub-genres falling under the larger designations of detective, mystery, or crime fiction. Proposals that address the intersection of detective fiction with other media (e.g., graphic novels, film, television, etc.) and genres (e.g., sci-fi, horror, domestic fiction, etc.) are especially welcome.
By focusing on the heterogeneous roots of our intellectual property system ISHTIP workshops seek to foster richer contextualization of this system than can be provided by legal history working alone. Information about this year's workshop topic and submission instructions at: http://www.ishtip.org.

As early as 1969, George Steiner 's essay "Extraterritorial" challenged Nabokov scholars to define how subcurrents of Nabokov's Russian affect his English: "We need really detailed study of the quality and degree of pressure which Russian puts on Nabokov's Anglo-American. How often are his English sentences "metatranslations" of Russian? To what extent do Russian semantic associations initiate the images and contour of the English phrase?"

This conference will convene scholars and practitioners to present state-of-the-art research on translation and the humanities. In particular, we seek to assess if, and how, academic disciplines comprising the humanities consider translation to be constitutive of their practice.
Translation scholars have called for a paradigm shift in defining the relationship between translation and the humanities. While it is acknowledged that a large share of our common knowledge is conveyed through translation, too little has been said about the way knowledge itself is built and circulated, particularly in the domain of interpretive disciplines.
