In the Middle Ages, there existed a concept known as translatio studii. Broadly speaking, this term refers to the transfer of cultural knowledge from one language and literature to another, often in the context of political and cultural conquest. These adaptations are often representative of the individual contributing components but manage to create new knowledge through overlap or expanding boundaries of culture, and authority.
In the spirit of translatio studii, this panel seeks to explore the adaptation of texts and concepts across time, language, media, history, gender, and socio-political power structures. All papers from any time period or culture addressing this interweaving and adaptation of meaning via language are welcome.
Chapter proposals are invited for the edited book Transecology: Transgender Perspectives on the Environment, due by May 15, 2016. This volume will explore the intersection between transgender studies and ecology, with contributions from an international group of scholars representing a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to such fields as literary criticism, gender studies, environmental studies, history, philosophy, religious studies, women's studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, geography, and political science.
2017 is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Austen has become one of the most discussed and beloved literary figures; indeed, her status as one of our most beloved literary figures has often influenced the ways in which her life and works are discussed within critical circles. Eve Sedgwick famously announced that Austen criticism is "notable not just for its timidity and banality but for its unresting exaction of the spectacle of a Girl Being Taught a Lesson." This special issue of Rhizomes invites critical articles and creative works that dismiss both this legacy of timidity and the tendency to exact pedagogical spectacles through scholarship.
