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.

Special Section on Soviet and Post-Soviet Shakespeares in The Shakespearean International Yearbook (2019)

We invite contributions for a special section on Soviet and post-Soviet engagements with Shakespearean drama and Shakespeare as a culturally significant figure. We are particularly interested in ideologically influenced performance, translation, literary adaptation, and scholarship. Papers might focus on how Soviet approaches to Shakespeare were influenced by the evolution of cultural policies from 1917 to 1991, or examine treatments of Shakespeare in post-Soviet states from 1991 until the present. Contributors are also encouraged to consider Soviet and post-Soviet Shakespeare in languages other than Russian.
