[ACLA 2018] Migratory Forms and Their Affective Challenges

updated: 
Thursday, September 7, 2017 - 10:46am
Jackie Kim, Harvard University; Melih Levi, Stanford University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

This seminar probes the significance of poetic forms as an affective vehicle in the context of their cross-cultural circulation and adaptation. How do migratory forms preserve, permute, and perform their affective potential as they cross linguistic and cultural borders? How does the question of forms and their transcultural adaptability reconfigure the principle of (un)translatability? How does cross-cultural transference complicate the affective potentiality of a form? What does a form lose and gain in such processes of global translation? What are, if at all existent, the responsibilities of a poet experimenting with borrowed forms?

REMINDER: Modernism's World Languages

NeMLA 2018: Pittsburgh, PA (April 12-15)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).

The 2nd Congress of the World Literature Association “Center and Periphery: A New Approach to World Literature” October 19-21, 2017

From October 19 to October 21, 2017, the University of Louvain (UCL, Belgium) will host the Second Congress of the World Literature Association, titled “Center and Periphery: A New Approach to World Literature”.

 

Among others, Pascale Casanova’s and Franco Moretti’s works have demonstrated how relevant the notions of “center” and “periphery” are for studying the world literary system. Far from exhausting all the issues related to this binary approach to literature, such works have rather shown a set of aspects that are yet to be explored in the definition of a world literature and which are likely to bring a reconsideration of the latter from a diachronic as well as a synchronic point of view.

The Poetic Nuance in Literary Translation

The task of translating a literary text often poses the challenge of choosing between content and form. This is, of course, conspicuous in the translation of poetry where meaning and form are indissoluble and constitute an organic whole. Prose translation can be equally exigent. Its narratological ingenuity and nuances in style demand not only verbal dexterity but also the ability to capture the magic concealed in the author’s imagery. In order to produce a version that is pertinent and meaningful to the modern reader, the translator of both poetry and prose takes certain liberties with regard to the source text but inevitably faces the challenge of fidelity to its original language and content.

Sound has always been there. However, its ephemeral condition has prevented us from critically listening to the past and even from thinking about our everyday sonic experiences. Moreover, the sonic materialization of the Logos —voice—  has been systematically relegated to a second level, even when orality was present in the production of any kind of text.

Moving Home: Poetics of Place in Latin American and Latino/a Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 9:31pm
NeMLA April 12-15, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel examines the relationship between identity, memory and the physical, linguistic, affective and geographic expressions of place in Latin American and Latino/a literature (20th-21st centuries). In particular, we will look at the ways movement and translation (linguistic and physical) serve as strategies for questioning, redeeming, liberating or reconstructing marginal places (e.g. prisons, slums, colonies) and identities. This session also aims to address the relationship between representations of place and theoretical debates surrounding nomadism (cf. Braidotti and Forcinito), intersectionality (cf. Crenshaw and Collins), and feminism/queer studies (cf. Haraway and Freccero) as modes of resisting fixity and fostering fluidity.

The emergence of ‘world literature’ as a critical framework of reading in literary studies has not only recalibrated older methodologies of comparative and postcolonial literature but has also foregrounded the aspect of circulation and reception of literary works in a transnational context. The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.
