Forum for Contemporary Issues in Language and Literature is an international multidisciplinary periodical that welcomes for review any innovative and challenging research article encroaching upon the fields of literature, linguistics, philosophy and cultural studies.
The manuscript submitted for publication is to be original and unpublished. It should not have been simultaneously submitted for review in any other journal.
Trans- is powerful: attaching itself to concepts, it challenges supposedly settled knowledge about the world we live in. In FORUM’s 34th issue, this destabilisation becomes central. We draw attention to the importance the prefix ‘trans-’ has acquired in recent decades as an index of movement, crossing, and shifting – and we are interested in your approaches to all that trans- has to offer, as both description and method: transnationality, translation, transdisciplinary, transgender…

This MLA panel invites critical and ethical interrogations that underpin the urgency to look beyond the single-issue strategies of reading and creating South Asia in critical discourse. Incidentally, the scholarly trajectory of issues on South Asia has flattened the diversity of the geopolitically, culturally rich discursive space and its experiences to increasingly refer to India-centric discussions.
Recent work like George Edmondson’s The Neighboring Text or Seeta Chaganti’s Strange Footing models close engagement with medieval manuscripts that offers new modes of experiencing literature beyond the historically positivist, empirically material, or hermeneutically suspicious, either by recognizing the limitations of theoretical lenses or by approaching language beyond information. This session asks how looking at the character of the medieval text on the manuscript page–its calligraphy, titles, rubrics, initials, performance cues, polysemy–might allow us to consider anew readers’ encounters, medieval and modern, with that text.
Lydia Davis is an award-winning author of nine short story collections, a novel, two volumes of essays, and a translator of Maurice Blanchot, Michael Leiris, Marcel Proust, and Gustave Flaubert. Beginning her career amidst the second wave of postmodernism, her very short stories - some only a paragraph or even a sentence long - have drawn comparisons with postmodern metafiction, literary minimalism, and LANGUAGE poetry. Her eclectic interests and unexpected manipulation of genre and form, however, frequently defy categorisation.
Articles for Lucian Blaga Yearbook – XXIV tome 1 – 2023
THEME: FEAR AND LITERATURE
The actuality of this type of theme is born out of the experience of the past years, when the pandemic brought about various reformulations, including of literature, but also out of the mutations which have arisen throughout the cultural ages under the influence of fear, analysed from a philosophical, literary, or cultural point of view in relation to all cultural products.
Issue XXIV (1) of the Lucian Blaga Notebooks advances the following axes of debate:
- Pandemics, epidemics, social maladies as reflected in literature
- Catastrophes and the apocalyptic imaginary
Cadernos de Fraseoloxía Galega (CFG), an international journal of phraseological and paremiological research published by the Centro Ramón Piñeiro para a Investigación en Humanidades (Xunta de Galicia), is calling for contributions for issue 25, which this time will be a monographic issue about the metalanguage in the field of Phraseology, a relevant topic due to the imperative need, in the 21st century, to homogenise the intralinguistic and interlinguistic terminology of phraseology.

Ever since the early days of applied linguistics, LSP studies, and functional approaches, the notion of text genre has been pervasive in translation studies. However, it is only in recent years that generic features and their treatment in translation have gained a more prominent position among the researchers’ interests (e.g. B.J. Woodstein, Translation and Genre, Cambridge University Press, 2022).
Tekirdağ Namık Kemal University is organizing the 3rd International Congress on Academic Studies in Philology (ICOASP) on 28-30 April, 2023 with the cooperation of five member universities of Association of Thrace Universities (TUB-Trakya Üniversiteler Birliği). The congress aims to bring together leading academic researchers and scholars to exchange and share their experiences on all aspects of Philology. Philology is more topical than ever in our age.

2023 Steinbeck Conference: “Reading, Teaching, and Translating Steinbeck”
March 22-24, 2023
San José State University, San José CA
At times, there is a dissonance between what is considered the ‘original’ narrative and its adapted form. For example, the release of Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of his own work, The Sandman, caused controversy amongst those who had read the comic book series, mainly for the casting decisions of actors such as Kirby Howell-Baptiste who played Death and Jennifer Coleman who played Constantine, as their original characters in the comics where white or/and male. In the same vein, Amazon’s recent adaptation of Tolkien’s work, Rings of Power, creates tensions between fans of the author and a modern audience who may not be familiar with the source material because of the discrepancies between the two versions.
Please find below two calls for proposals for a special issue and a conference panel dedicated to Elsa Morante. Please notice that they have two different submission deadlines.
CFP Annali d’italianistica 42 (2024) - 50 Years of La Storia: Elsa Morante Beyond History
It has been decades since linguistics began to transcend beyond the study of structure. Linguistics has departed from the confines of phonetics and phonology (the study of linguistic sounds), morphology (the study of word formation), syntax (the study of the structure of phrases, clauses, and sentences), and semantics (the study of meanings). Countless studies have been undertaken involving linguistics and other related disciplines.
The fragment and its rhythms: writing practices, sites of thought, acts of resistance
Université de Montréal, Québec, Canada, April 27th and 28th, 2023
Conference organized by Sarah Labelle, Benoîte Turcotte-Tremblay and Justina Uribe
In its very form, literature cannot be separated from time, from the history that gives it an anchor, from the moment of creation, from the rhythm that controls or frees the writings. The fragmentary form discloses the vestiges of time in their most material shape, helping us apprehend language through its smallest elements.

2022 Online Yeats International Conference (October 15-16, 2022) theme is “New Directions in Yeats Studies: Memory, Translation, and Digital Technology.”
T.S. Eliot considered Dante to be his stylistic and existential model and his Commedia a fundamental reading for the appreciation of modern poetry in any language. He maintained that Dante appealed to universal concepts, which is the aspect that made his poem successful throughout the centuries and across the world. According to the festival Dante nel mondo, realized by the municipality of Ravenna in 2016, there are 58 complete translations of the Commedia in European, Asian, African, and South American languages.
