Metal and Change: Metal’s Role in an Ever-Changing World

Since its inception Metal music has been in constant flux, whether in the development of new genres and subgenres to the way that it has been perceived in society over time. Metal music and culture, to survive, need to adapt to a world constantly in upheaval, whether through changing attitudes toward the music, changes in society’s structure, or even changes in what Metal music is and how it addresses issues in the world, like COVID.  But to stay Metal it must still maintain its own identity.

Translation is an essential and indispensable skill for foreign language students. Through translation, they have the opportunity not only to reflect upon and deeply understand cultural and linguistic aspects of the target language, but they are also capable of compare it with the source culture and language. It is a linguistic exercise, a creative process, as well as an opportunity for cultural immersion and a creative process. However, teaching a translation class or simply integrating translation activities into the language classroom comes with myriad pedagogical challenges for the instructor.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

Since the 1990s, the impact of transnational flows in technology, finance and knowledge have significantly altered the trajectories of filmmaking from South-Asian countries. Among the new developments is indigenous cinema, in a multitude of linguistic varieties and cultural diversities. South Asia is home to several indigenous communities, with India alone having 104 million Adivasi communities across the nation, as per the 2011 census data (Adivasi being the collective term for indigenous groups in India). These communities share certain features, their heterogeneity being the most striking. Many of these communities belong to the margins, with minimal resources and social capital to ensure their wellbeing.
