International Conference: "Shifting Paradigms: How Translation Transforms the Humanities."/Urbana, IL/Deadline: April 15, 2010

Friday, April 2, 2010 - 4:39pm
The Center for Translation Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and The Université Denis-Diderot, Paris, France

October 14-16, 2010

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Levis Faculty Center

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.

[UPDATE] Women's Resistance in Early Modern England - RSA 2011 Montreal (24-26 March), abstracts 4/15/10

Friday, April 2, 2010 - 12:03pm
Rachel Greenberg / Canisius College

Early Modern England was a benchmark for literary and political activity by women, from Anne Askew's Examinations in the first half of the sixteenth century to Anna Trapnel's political prophecies in the final decades of the seventeenth. While the lengthy reign and potency of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) certainly set a precedent for early modern women's writing, texts by women played a significant political role well before and after her rule, and arguably found their apogee in the ideological fervor that surrounded the reigns of her Stuart successors. More importantly, women authors actively participated in the early modern public sphere at a time when magistrates and divines were striving to situate women within the realm of the household.
