[REMINDER - last days to submit] Unflattening the Encounter: Translation, Travel, and Place: NeMLA 2020

updated: 
Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 5:08pm
Sanjukta Benerjee, Agata Mergler / NorthEast Modern Language (NeMLA) 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

How can we apprehend the “terms of translation” shaping the construction and circulation of texts and artifacts across space and time? What sites and contexts of cultural and linguistic encounter move us to question those terms? Translation can be understood as always entangled with its surroundings, in tension with and inseparable from the place of its construction and of its reception at different times and places, suggesting that the complexity of language relations can remain constant across sites of inquiry; it can also have a flattening effect for the receiver, often blurring the line between “speaking of” and “speaking for”, and obscuring the networks of actors and processes involved in its making.

“Over the Horizon: Comparative Perspectives on Literature” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

As Sarah Lawall stated in her essay, the world-literature perspective is not one, but multiple. By looking at literature comparatively, we can enrich our understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works, to look over the horizon of our own tradition and to see how cultures interact.The conference will consider the theory and the practice of comparative literature and will discuss the transformations and travels of literary genres and texts across time and space. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.Topics may include, but are not limited to:
