a/b: Auto/Biography StudiesCall for Papers: Special Issue on Trans Narratives

Deadline: 15 January 2018

“Trans” has taken on a number of important theoretical and critical meanings inside and outside the academy. A prefix with the sense in the OED of ‘across, through, over, to or on the other side of, beyond, outside of, from one place, person, thing, or state to another,’ “trans” can attach itself to other words to connote movement and change, and in this sense it affects what we think we know about media or nation, working to destablize settled knowledge about the world we live in. When it is attached to identity, it has destablized ideas about gender and sexuality.

In his 1988 lecture “The Condition We Call Exile,” Joseph Brodsky said: “Whatever the proper name for these people [refugees, exiles, émigrés], whatever their motives, origins, and destinations, whatever their impact on the societies which they abandon and to which they come may amount to—one thing is absolutely clear: they make it very difficult to talk about the plight of the writer in exile with a straight face. Yet talk we must; and not only because literature, like poverty, is known for taking care of its own kind, but more because of the ancient and perhaps as yet unfounded belief that should the masters of this world be better read, the mismanagement and grief that make millions take to the road could be somewhat reduced.”
