Literary Geographies of African Futures (special issue of *Literary Geographies*)

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - 1:20pm
Matthew Eatough and Irikidzayi Manase
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 30, 2020

Over the past 10 years, we have witnessed a number of efforts to reimagine African life from the vantage of a future “yet to come,” to borrow AbdouMaliq Simone’s resonant expression. From new science fiction narratives that seeks to delineate their own visions of tomorrow, to scholarly collections that seek to trace the prospects of emergent phenomena, to nonprofit organizations and think tanks that have organized festivals, workshops, and art projects devoted to imagining African futures, there has been a growing sentiment that African thinkers would benefit from taking an active role in the construction of future-oriented imaginaries.

Translation and Relocation: Literary Encounters East and West

Michael Bryson / California State University, Northridge
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Call for Papers

In Comparative Literature, the increasingly contested field of “World Literature”, and Translation Studies, the notion of the “untranslatability” of literature has gained purchase in recent years, due in part to the work of Emily Apter and the continual rediscoveries of the work of Walter Benjamin. Literary translation is conceived of, in one view, as impossible, and in another view as an activity (even an art form) with infinite possibilities for the translator but minimal responsibilities toward that which is being translated.
