‘…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).

Call for Papers - Creature Redux: Considering the Pasts, Presents, and Futures of Chimera in Fiction and Popular Culture

Animals are the quotidian absolute Other. They are not inherently horrifying, dangerous, or invasive; nor do they have designs to usurp or subjugate humanity. In his lecture-turned-book The Animal That Therefore I Am, Derrida critiques the use of the word “animal” to describe an almost limitless array of creatures. “Animal” becomes a catch-all term for everything that is otherwise than human–and not the biological entity, but a specific, constructed hegemonic entity.

Revisiting Realism: History, Memory, the World Second International Conference on Realism(s) in Post-WWII Literature

Nanjing University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 30, 2023

    Writers and critics have in recent years hailed for a “return” of realism to the literary arena with revised notions of what constitutes realist representation to take account of the experiences that are unique to our new era, e.g. “speculative realism”, “metonymic realism”, “ecocritical realism”, and “quantum realism”, to name just a few. Indeed, realism has neverbeen away from the academic limelight despite its accused naivety in aspiring to represent reality objectively, unabashed interpellation of readers into dominant ideologies or as a symptom of the waning of affect in late capitalism.

The immortal Fascination of the Monster. Monstrous Births and human Phenomena between Normality and Deviation.

Edited by Marina Mascherini and Bruno Accarino 

Today wonders and prodigies are on the agenda and populate literature, cinema, art, philosophy. A new curiosity about deviance and normality has certainly contributed, and still contributes, to the fascination ascribable to the extraordinary and the marginal. Once the ideals of order and rationality entered deeply into crisis, wonder and the marvelous have assumed an unimaginable importance, especially in intellectual circles.
