This panel proposes a historical approach to the study of women’s participation in the press industry as editors of magazines, newspapers, and periodicals. We invite scholars to work from a transnational perspective in order to compare editorial strategies and trace different journalistic traditions in Europe and the US. In addressing these issues, this panel seeks to explain how women shaped the periodical field throughout the long nineteenth century while navigating the challenges of the industry and advocating for gender equality.

The Author’s Other Voice: Literary Translation in Theory and Practice

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 10:49am

Sunday, September 30, 2018

The interdisciplinary turn in the field of Translation Studies has raised a number of questions regarding the interweaving of theory and practice, the development of hybrid approaches to the target text, the power of translation to shape cultural relations, and the growing expectations of the reader for truth and clarity. In this context, the role of the literary translator becomes ever-more pertinent. His/her verbal dexterity as well as the ability to capture the narratological complexity of the source text define the subtle border between content and form and shape the identity of the translated work of art.
