Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

We seek submissions to a seminar on Gender Switching and Queerness in Web-Native Shakespare at the upcoming ESRA conference (http://www.ircl.cnrs.fr/francais/sos2019.htm) in Montpellier, France, in June 2019. We welcome papers exploring the interpretive possibilities generated by queer and gender-switched casting in web series and other digitally-native media adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays. By shifting the means of production and distribution beyond traditional mainstream media channels, new digital platforms like YouTube, Tumblr, and Netflix offer a creative process through which more people can adapt Shakespeare in their own image.

Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts: Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing

Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:

Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing

 

Please circulate widely.

 

In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.

Seminar: From Life to Afterlives: Creative Re-presentation in the Premodern World

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:01pm
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Organizer: Alison Frazier, University of Texas, Austin

DESCRIPTION:

Across the pre-modern world, biography in all media focused largely on rulers, warrior heroes, and spiritual adepts. Such figures, historical or not, were understood to embody virtues worth preserving, admiring and, on occasion, imitating. Thus, the global phenomena of afterlives: creative re-presentations that aimed to secure the posthumous life, or life-effect, of the hero. The topic of afterlives encourages pursuit of a global and comparative pre-modernity that remains generously local, conceptually and theoretically astute, and disciplinarily diverse.
