Mantis at Stanford: call for poetry translations

Mantis: A Journal of Poetry, Criticism, and Translation
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Mantis is interested in publishing translations that will expose our readers to compelling and unfamiliar poems. All languages will be considered--we've featured work from Tamil, Italian, Danish, and Farsi--and all translations appear side-by-side with the original. 

Please submit your translations (with the original) via Submittable as a single file. We'd also appreciate a brief note introducing the poet you're translating. This can appear in your cover letter or within your submission itself. This should help us contextualize the poet in question and would--we imagine--become the basis for the short introductions that we run with our translated poems.

We require additional essays for an edited volume on queer visual cultures contracted with Universitas Press and due to be published by the end of this year. Essays should focus on representations and portrayals of, or appropriations of the queer subject on stage, on screen or through other visual cultural mediums. The essays could discuss individual works or artists or attempt to present a study of genres or a cluster of works. At this stage we are looking for an additional 5-6 papers that deal with the queer subject on film and on stage/theatrical portrayals of the queer, queer art or the queer in art, New Queer Cinema, installation art and the queer, queering dance, and the queer in television.

48th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association

March 23-26, 2017

Baltimore, Maryland 

 

Victorian-Modernism. An unlikely match that many might consider intrinsically oxymoronic. In this panel, we invite Victorian and Modernist literary scholars to a productive conversation with a dual purpose. First, to trouble the boundaries between these two periods through papers that treat Victorian and Modernist literary texts as companions rather than as strictly periodized texts in opposition. Second, to examine representations of the city as a key site that initiates this dialogue.

Inaugural Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society

The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date.  From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.
