Juan G. Ramos (NEMLA 2010-Montreal)

In a region where queer sexualities, child abuse and pornography, the relation between the Church and the State, historical traumas from dictatorships, legacies of so-called Dirty Wars, animal brutality, machismo, among other topics are both commonplace and yet "taboo," Latin American writers and artists such as Fernando Vallejo, Pedro Lemebel, Las Yeguas del Apocalipsis, Guillermo "Habacuc" Vargas, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Sabina Berman, Griselda Gambaro, Calle 13, among others have brought such sensitive issues to the public's attention and garnered a mixture of outcries or acceptance.

'Ryght as it is ymad in Fraunce': Franco-English Poetic Translation(s), 1350-1550

Monday, May 25, 2009 - 5:10am
Mariana Neilly, Queen's University Belfast, and Liv Robinson, University of Oxford

Abstracts for papers are invited for a one-day colloquium co-hosted by the University of Oxford and Queen's University Belfast on the translation of French poetry into English in the later Middle Ages, to be held on the 20th March 2010 at St. Hilda's College Oxford. The conference will aim investigate the concept of 'translation' between the two vernaculars during this period, taking into account linguistic concerns, but also questions of the bibliographical, cultural and formal shifts which may occur through the practice of translation.
Topics for discussion could include (but are not limited to):
- The translation of poetic form and structure from one language to another
