Dante Alighieri expressed the transcendence of the human condition beyond its limitations through the verb trasumanar in Paradiso 1. It is rare evidence that Alighieri had thought of a kind of "transhuman" change in the early 1300s. In the past years, we witnessed the change raised by the feminist movements, especially the last wave called ''transfeminism'', which pointed out how ''being human'' it is not enough for the subjectivities in order to be recognized by politics. For this reason, the word ''posthuman'' was used to show how monsters can be active participants in our society, being part of us.

Discussions around reproduction in the contemporary era have usually been bound up with debates around abortion rights and pro-life/pro-choice campaigns. From the UK’s proposals to create buffer zones at abortion clinics to prevent protests, to increased legalisation of abortion rights in several Latin American countries over recent years. Yet the conflict between continued restrictions in some countries and the relaxing of abortion laws in others continue to dominate the debate.

Critical conversations concerned with ecosystems often relate to various geos (-logies, -graphies, etc.), the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, as Elizabeth Povinelli astutely questions, “[have] we become so entranced by the image of power working through life [namely biopolitics and its variations] that we haven’t noticed the new problems, figures, strategies and concepts emerging all around us…?” (4). The fluidity of ‘systems’ - whether they be ecological, political, social, etc.

In the wake of his death in 2021, tributes emphasised how Sondheim’s creations were not only a postmodern challenge to the hummable tunes of traditional musical theatre and conventional simplicities of staging and plot, but also to expected ideas of the musical theatre protagonist. Writing in The Atlantic, Sophie Gilbert expressed the audience’s love for Sondheim as a response to how his work ‘takes the typically unseen… and forces them into the spotlight’.

Literary theory has contributed towards the recovery of marginalised narratives and discourses in literature during the last three decades. The word, ‘minor’ has acquired a resonance of its own in the context of ‘national’ literature which tends to be part of a ‘great tradition’. Against such a background, the recovery of diverse indigenous traditions has become an important task of comparative studies of literature. Nations emerged as ‘imagined’ communities. However, nation-states were not ‘imagined’ in the crucible of prolonged struggles of anti-colonial resistance in Asia, Africa and Latin America, but were born of the political exigencies of imperial powers.

‘…for women within oppressed groups who have contained so many feelings–despair, rage, anguish–who do not speak, as poet Audre Lorde writes, “for fear our words will not be heard nor welcomed,” coming to voice is an act of resistance. Speaking becomes both a way to engage in active self-transformation and a rite of passage where one moves from being object to being subject.’[1]

Ever since the early days of applied linguistics, LSP studies, and functional approaches, the notion of text genre has been pervasive in translation studies. However, it is only in recent years that generic features and their treatment in translation have gained a more prominent position among the researchers’ interests (e.g. B.J. Woodstein, Translation and Genre, Cambridge University Press, 2022).
