Translating Italian Dialects: Issues, Strategies and Solutions across Languages. (UPDATED 6/3/2019)

Dialects are a major component of Italian linguistic richness, which depict a specific community with its own history, customs and habits, and which profoundly varies from the North to the South. The peculiarity of Italian linguistic history is its resistance towards its linguistic uniformity, imposed after the unification of the Country in the second half of the 19th century, which however is still far from being a reality today. In fact, the relationship between dialects and Standard Italian results into a form of bilingualism and diglossia. These phenomena happen when the use of dialect in an informal context takes place opposed to the use of Standard Italian in a formal one within the same community of speakers.

Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. The significance of the comical aspect centers on a greater understanding of experimental practices as cases that unsettle the establishment. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging bourgeois values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.

Old and Middle English Language and Literature: Medieval Merging of Old and New Knowledge and Practice

updated: 
Monday, April 8, 2019 - 3:41pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

The coexistence in practice though not always in name of sometimes very different knowledges is both an ancient and modern concern. The Middle Ages saw the development of the concept of translatio studii alongside a growing interest in translation from other languages and cultures, both ancient and contemporary. At its core, translatio studii is the absorption of knowledge or practice from one culture into another, resulting in a text or practice that presents itself as part of the dominant culture, but retains something of its origins as well.

Universities often separate into departments based on geographic regions as seen in the designations of “English” and “French.” Yet for medieval studies, these two regions were not completely separate entities, but deeply entwined with culture, land, and even leadership frequently changing hands or uniting them together. Based on the 2018 conference of the same name, this panel aims to bring together scholars of English and French—as well as other disciplines—to show how their work necessarily crosses the boundaries between these two fields.
