CFP: [Poetry] The Modern Poet-translator (2009 MLA)

updated: 
Thursday, January 29, 2009 - 9:51pm
Nick Moudry

I am soliciting panelists for a proposed special session at the 2009 MLA
conference in sunny Philadelphia (27-30 Dec. 2009). The panel seeks to
engage the question of what happens when poets translate poetry.
Specifically, what role does the poet-translator’s own aesthetic views have
in shaping their choice of source text and/or translation strategy, and
what effect does this have on Anglo-American perceptions of foreign
literary canons?

Call for Papers

In conjunction with the 2009 International Conference on Peace sponsored
by the Division of International Studies, the Department of English and
Modern Foreign Languages at Jackson State University is issuing a call
for papers for a series of sessions on topics in global or comparative
literature.

This symposium invites consideration of the dialogue between literature
and culture along a wide range of interdisciplinary areas. Since the
conference places particular emphasis on aspects of cultural sensitivity,
race relations, gender disparities, democratic ideals, and environmental
issues, papers that address some facet of these areas will receive the
highest priority.

Denise Almeida Silva

This CFP centers on contemporary images of Brazil and the Brazilians.
Moving away from the study of representations connected to romantic
nationalism and the exploitation of local color, this CFP aims at
triggering reflections on how Brazil and the Brazilians have been
depicted in contemporary literary, pictorial, cinematographic and
historic productions, especially in the ones produced from the second
half of the twentieth century on. The CFP invites studies on images of
Brazil and the Brazilians in Brazilian art and those produced from a
foreign perspective.
