Keynote Speaker: Eileen Myles

"My narrative begins in media res, when many things have already taken place to make me and my story possible in language. I am always recuperating, reconstructing, and I am left to fictionalize and fabulate origins I cannot know."
– Judith Butler, "An Account of Oneself"

"Writing so as not to die, as Blanchot said, or perhaps even speaking so as not to die is a task, undoubtedly as old as the world."

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.

WSQ (Womens Studies Quarterly) Call for Papers, Poetry, Prose and Art: Fashion Issue (due March 15)

updated: 
Friday, January 6, 2012 - 10:50am
WSQ at the Feminist Press

Fashion is an economic and social force, a culture industry, a global powerhouse, a political statement. Fashion can simultaneously express freedom and constriction, be both democratic and totalitarian; both repress and liberate the body and gender roles. Transformation and affect are at its heart. Fashion is a universal form of human expression that transgresses boundaries of gender/race/class/embodiment/culture/nation. Fashion ignites passions, produces colossal waste, demands ruthless exclusion, inspires hysterical devotion. Bubbling up and filtering down, fashion mixes high and low, sultry and strong, ancient ritual and cutting edge technology.
