In the “Preface by the Translator” that Margaret Fuller penned for her translation of Goethe’s Tasso, she states: “There are difficulties attending the translation of German works into English which might baffle one much more skillful in the use of the latter than myself. A great variety of compound words enable the German writer to give a degree of precision and delicacy of shading to his expressions nearly impracticable with the terse, the dignified, but by no means flexible English idiom” (Art, Literature and the Drama, p. 355).

The second volume of Turkish-German Studies Yearbook in 2011 was devoted to the 50thanniversary of the migration of Turkish guest workers to Germany. At that time, the prevailing mood surrounding Turkish-German relations was celebratory. Discussions on Leitkultur, the supposed phenomenon of speaking two languages halfway, and integration faded into the background, while mutual acceptance seemed within reach.

Tales of Terror: Gothic, Horror, and Weird Short Fiction

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 - 10:45am
University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Tales, fables, fragments, sketches, and other short literary forms have comprised the fabric of scary stories told and re-told, adapted, transformed, appropriated and re-appropriated. Their brevity is, and was often, central to their wider dissemination, and for the publication and democratisation of voices that might have otherwise remained unheard; allowing them to be accessed by those who might have otherwise been excluded. Much of their debt is, undoubtedly owed to the oral yarn, the fireside tale, the urban legend, and many have, and remain, connected to a diverse and rich visual culture.

Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:18am
Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.
