From ancient Greek τραύμα (meaning “wound, damage”), the term trauma refers to a physical or psychological injury provoked by a violent event, and the very event causing this great distress. Traumatic events abound in early modern France, whether be caused by natural catastrophes (floods, storms, fires, harsh winter, plagues) or by human activity (warfare, sexual violence, religious persecution).

Fungal Spaces, Resilience, Plurality

Friday, September 30, 2022

Fungi occupy a liminal position as neither animal nor vegetal but are intimately connected to both biologically: as Eugenia Bone notes, paying attention to the fungal teaches us that “everything that lives is plural.” Fungal lives are multiple and collective, and what Anna Tsing calls the “unruly edges” of fungal individuality betrays the fact that they are “always too many.” This bifurcated perspective modeled by fungal relational entanglements suggests “unsettling and symbiotic relationships” where an objectified environment subsumed by a masterful Anthropos is abandoned for the sake of intra-active becomings (as Karen Barad suggests).

TTR – Traduction, terminologie, rédaction, vol. 36, no 2 (2023)

Thematic issue guest edited by Patrick Hersant

  

What are the mental operations and writing practices by which a text becomes, in another language, another text? In order to better understand how translations come into being, the journal TTR - Traduction, terminologie, rédaction proposes to examine an object of study that has long remained invisible or inaccessible: the working documents of translators, where strikethroughs and permutations, erasures and second thoughts, alternative wordings and successive corrections reveal a process that is as yet understudied:  translations in the making.

CFP- Chapter abstracts for the edited collection “Depicting the afterlife: morality and religion in contemporary film and media

(For possible inclusion as part of the Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series)

 

As Garrett (2015) contends, popular cultural representations of the afterlife are a means of imaginatively and creatively grappling with the unknown. These representations can offer explanations about life after death or the in-between, to rationalize the existential, support and challenge religious doctrines, and entertain and educate so that society might live life to the fullest or feel assured that there is something more.
