1st International Conference on the Literary Knots between the Hispanic and the Anglophone Worlds “De guiris y castizos”

Thursday, October 13, 2022 - 9:11am
Universidad Complutense de Madrid
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

The pathways of both the Hispanic and the anglophone world, despite the apparent distance between them, and the different historical events that have confronted them, have usually been parallel, showing multiple links. These have affected all aspects of society (politics, economy, war, tourism, education…) and have been reflected by arts and letters. From the English intellectuals working at the Toledo School of Translators to Javier Marías’s novels, via the English (and then American) travelers in Spain, Telesforo de Trueba y Cossío’s hybrid texts, and the successive Spanish exile waves, both worlds have coalesced. And that has been done so with multiple and enjoyable fruits, attracting the attention of Academia in the recent decades.

ACLA 2023: Theories and Practices of Empathy Across the World

This seminar explores conceptions of empathy in various philosophical, cultural, and linguistic traditions across the world. The English word “empathy,” adapted from the German einfühlung and closely associated with the older term sympathy, is notoriously slippery. Scholars have identified various affective-cognitive processes that empathy connotes, including imagining oneself in others’ situations, comprehending others’ perspectives, feeling what others feels, feeling affected by others’ experiences, and caring for others. Investigating the premises and implications of these empathic processes, scholars have shown that attending to nuanced differences between notions of empathy enhances our understanding of its possibilities and limitations.

ACLA 2023 Seminar: South Asian Untranslatables

Monday, October 31, 2022

South Asian texts and cultures offer a panoply of terms that are difficult to translate. Consider bhāva — a keyword in premodern philosophy, dramaturgy, and poetics — which may refer to an emotion, a meaning, an essential characteristic, a physical object, a living being, or existence itself. In contemporary South Asia, numerous colloquial terms such as timepass, jugaad, and aunty evoke nuanced existential states, techniques, and relationships that call for careful (and playful) theorization. 

Muslims in America

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:35am
Syed Hassan Abidi / NeMLA

Saturday, October 15, 2022

The panel intends to explore the depiction of Muslim American identity across various discourses and works of Muslim American authors, filmmakers, novelists, and musicians who draw upon such identities. The diverse emergence of Muslim American identity calls for insights that examine such identities depicted in various forms of text and talk. Keeping in context the theme of NeMLA’s 54th convention “resilience” the session draws on the theoretical underpinnings of Edward Said’s notion of Orientalism in order to further investigate discursive constructions of Muslim identities along with various discourses and the role Muslim Americans play in shaping these identities.

ACLA 2023 panel on "Humor and Amusement in Translation: Not Losing it"

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:30am
American Comparative Literature Association 2023

Monday, October 31, 2022

In a world gradually opening itself to diversity, cultural perceptions are greatly influenced by translation of emotions, and their expressions in public discourse and art. But what happens when humor is translated? Humor in literary discourse harnesses amusement arising from perception of differences and/or contrasts, and as such, it is especially challenging to ensure that it retains its amusing quality despite the change in linguistic and cultural registers of perception.

ACLA 2023: Sensing Migrant Romanticism

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

In his influential study of Romanticism, M. H. Abrams famously claimed that radical aesthetic novelties “frequently turn out to be migrant ideas which, in their native intellectual habitat, were commonplaces.” This panel seeks to embrace such migrancy to go beyond the confines of European culture and periodization and even question the assumptions about originality, propriety, legitimacy, and imitation embedded in Abrams and later interpreters of Romanticism.

The Many Fortunes of the Courtier: The Resilience of Castiglione’s Cortegiano

NEMLA 2023a
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Learning of Castiglione’s death in 1529, Charles V declared “one of the finest gentlemen in the world has just died.”
The Spanish emperor’s praise is evidence of the depth and scope of the influence of Il Cortegiano during the
sixteenth century, appearing in Spanish translation by Juan Boscán in 1534 and in an Elizabethan translation by
Thomas Hoby in 1561. Yet Castiglione’s Courtier—read at times as a book of manners, and other times as
representative of Renaissance ideals—continued to influence writers, poets, and literary critics well into the
seventeenth century and for long after. Whether interested in sprezzatura, the art of conversation, the persistence of

TTR – Traduction, terminologie, rédaction, vol. 36, no 2 (2023)

Thematic issue guest edited by Patrick Hersant


What are the mental operations and writing practices by which a text becomes, in another language, another text? In order to better understand how translations come into being, the journal TTR - Traduction, terminologie, rédaction proposes to examine an object of study that has long remained invisible or inaccessible: the working documents of translators, where strikethroughs and permutations, erasures and second thoughts, alternative wordings and successive corrections reveal a process that is as yet understudied:  translations in the making.
