Inviting Submission to Living in Languages Journal

Dear Participants,

Congratulations on your presentation at the 2022 Living in Languages Colloquium. We are pleased to invite you to submit papers for the second publication of Living in Languages Journal, an online open-source, peer-reviewed graduate journal devoted to translation studies at University at Albany. As a multilingual and interdisciplinary publication—a collaboration between the English and the Languages, Literatures and Cultures departments—our journal is primarily dedicated to our paper presenters who participated in the translation colloquium. 

Concept note:

For our second issue, we want to build from our colloquium where the presenters explored, under the rubric of living in more than one language/culture, work on topics ranging from the construction of selves to slang and the sounds of the foreign, from audiovisual dubbings to exiles whose languages brush up against one another, from magical realism to culinary contexts, in sum, from and to Babel and its literary and political cascades.  We also welcome submissions from other institutions and scholars.


Aligned with the Living in Languages colloquium, we are inviting papers for the following subthemes to justify the relevance and scope of the issue:

1)     Translation and the Confessional Tradition

2)     Translation and the Development of Distinct Lexicons.

3)     Translation and M(O)ther Tongues.

4)     Translation and Genre

5)     Translation and Hybridity

6)     Limits of Translations

7)     Translation and Experience
