Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context

Special Issue for Fall 2021: Performing Translation

Call for Papers


The “Performing Translation” special issue of Situations: Cultural Studies in the Asian Context brings together two keywords that have helped shape discourse on transnational cultural studies in the twenty-first century: performance and translation. Both concepts understand culture as fluid, shifting, and constantly on the move. Both are predicated on cultural encounter and exchange. Both performance and translation are iterative acts that challenge the notion of an original.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 21, 2020

Articles in about 4000(four thousand words) are invited from faculties, academicians, scholars and activists for the inaugural issue of a peer reviewed journal called Social Currents. The issue will feature articles on the Covid-19 pandemic and what this means for a society, culture and nation. Have we learnt new lessons or should we go about doing what we always aspire and do-a technocracy irreverent to human history and its complex interlinking with the environment. While doctors and nurses are at the forefront of the battle against the pandemic, are we somehow ignoring the sanitation workers or such men and women who have been traditionally marginalized and do not figure in our ideas of societal growth?
