As early as 1969, George Steiner 's essay "Extraterritorial" challenged Nabokov scholars to define how subcurrents of Nabokov's Russian affect his English: "We need really detailed study of the quality and degree of pressure which Russian puts on Nabokov's Anglo-American. How often are his English sentences "metatranslations" of Russian? To what extent do Russian semantic associations initiate the images and contour of the English phrase?"

International Journal of Travel and Places Seeks Submissions (Deadline May 10, 2010)

Sunday, April 4, 2010 - 2:52pm
World-Weary: A journal of places

See for additional submission details and don't hesitate to e-mail with any questions.

This is first and foremost a journal of places. People now travel more than ever, yet there is a dearth of intelligent, thoughtful, long-form writing about the spaces in which people live, work, and visit. Though humans have explored most of this planet, these feats are meaningless unless we are able to create in-depth reflections on our experiences.

Non-fiction literature about people and places will form the majority of the World-Weary's content, but essays, histories, fiction, interviews, satire, investigations, and other forms of written expression will also be featured.
