The "Geo" turn in Translation Studies

Sunday, October 31, 2021

Space and spatiality have been significant coordinates in the study of translation in the West. The concept has long been included in humanities and social sciences too by scholars like Edward Soja (1989); Warf & Arias (2009). This panel aims to question how the concept of “geo” features in translation and analyse translation as a point of intersection and relationality that redefines our concepts of spatial axis and territorial coordinates. This panel will try to bring in disciplines of geometry and geography to the terrain of translation studies and thus include alternative models to expand the field.

Online International Conference organized by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies, Liverpool Hope University, Hope Park Campus, 27th June 2022

Global transformations fostered by the decentralization of communications from mainstream media and governance institutions to a plural range of socioeconomic actors and stakeholders have shaken the foundations of social consensus, truth and objectivity in the construction of public spheres. Such transformation has posed unprecedented challenges to conflict management and peacebuilding, multiplying risks of instability and war, but also the spaces for the construction of collective meanings and the voices shaping them.

Representing Girlhood in Popular Culture

Call for Chapter Abstracts for Edited Collection, to be part of the Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series.

Contemporary popular culture texts increasingly showcase representations of girls and young women in a myriad of ways. There are common tropes that we as audiences have come to expect in stories of girlhood, which usually concern navigating friendships, self-discovery, familial drama, teenage discontent, etc., packaged in familiar frames about suburban school experiences, or in fantastical and bold tales in fantasy and science fiction.

Thinking about literature to write history : common paths, tensions, and encounters between historical and literary writings

Revue Post-Scriptum
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

This Post-Scriptum’s conference wishes to address different ways in which the relationships between history and literature are thought out as sources of tensions, interrogations, and mutual influences. Two questions underlie this perspective: how can literary texts deal with historical events, and, conversely, in what way(s) works of historiography borrow elements from literature, both formal and narrative? Hence, problems that are related to these questions can be addressed. These problems concern the theoretical, formal, narratological, epistemological, etc. consequences of the encounters between history and literature.

Media, art and literature in the late-twentieth and early twenty-first century have been inundated with the memories and portrayals of wars, upheavals, declarations, political persecutions, colonial struggles and religious/ideological wars and terror acts. The spectacles of the industrial and global world as well as digitalised life, ruthless socio-economic dynamics, widening rich/poor gap, generational discrepancies and pandemics have left lasting marks on the human psyche and fostered art and literature to tackle the stigmas and impacts of the long century on contemporary life. Dystopias and anti-utopias of the modern world also made the past a space for (social, political, artistic) exploration, reconsideration, reclamation and reconciliation.
