American, British and Canadian Studies, the Journal of the Academic Anglophone Society of Romania, invites submissions for a special 2019 issue on Images of the Translator and Interpreter in Anglophone Literature, guest edited by Dr Adriana Neagu and Dr Alina Pelea, Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj. The Special Issue will explore fictional representations of translation and interpretation roles across the centuries with emphasis on the dominant motifs, the myths, stereotypes, clichés and their reverberations in Anglophone translation and interpretation cultures. While we primarily target contributions by professional translation and interpreter practitioners, scholars and trainers, we welcome as well original academic essays that address themes such as location and multilingualism in translation and interpretation studies, renditions of narrative discourse in the translation and interpretation profession, TS and IS between theory and praxis, and the changing landscape of TS and IS.

 

We also welcome creative contributions and book reviews of recent TS and IS criticism volumes.  Articles and contributions must not have been published elsewhere, nor currently be under review in any other journal.
