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.

The panel seeks to examine Russian realist novels and their impact on other world literatures of the nineteenth and twentieth century, as well as contemporary authors, and study the possible connections between the Russian realist tradition and other texts that can be potentially related to its literary legacy. We invite abstracts devoted specifically to the analysis of any aspect of Russian realist novels of the nineteenth century, as well as papers on broader philosophical and social issues relevant to the Russian realist novel tradition and its influence world-wide.
The proposed interdisciplinary panel examines the rich relationship of music and literary works within various world literatures focusing primarily on the twentieth century, but presentations within a broader time frame will also be considered. We invite a wide range of papers investigating the author’s technique of representing music in literature, examining aesthetic, historical and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, as well as the relationship between the literary text and the composer.
