Colloquy: text, theory, critique is seeking submissions for a special edition focusing on translation which will be published in the second half of 2015. Submissions of translations as well as articles engaging with the concept, the product and the practice of translation from the perspective of philosophy and literary theory will all be considered.
Colloquy is a peer-reviewed online journal published twice annually by postgraduate students in the Literary and Cultural Studies Graduate Research Program at Monash University. It publishes material in the areas of critical theory, philosophy, literary and cultural studies, film and television, communications, media studies and performance.
To be considered for the special issue, all work should have a critical focus on translation. Submitters are encouraged to contact the editors with an abstract if they would like to check the suitability of their work.
Each translation must come with an active copyright assertion that the submitter holds the appropriate rights to publish the piece they are sending to Colloquy and that the journal has the right to publish and transmit this work. Translations that are submitted to Colloquy may have any source and any target language, but must be accompanied by a commentary of at least 1000 words in English. The translation should be responded to as an original piece of research and reasons for the need for the (new) translation outlined. The commentary should also outline the submitter’s methodology (as well as the relevant theory they are using, where applicable) and the reasons for their approach. Translations may be published with the original text included but this is assessed on a case-by-case basis. When submitting the translation please include in your email whether you wish to publish the original work or not, a very brief statement (one to two sentences) as to why this is the case and any copyright issues involved.
All work is strictly double-blind refereed by experts in the field.
The deadline for submissions is 31 March 2015.
Articles should be between 6,000 and 10,000 words and should follow the Chicago Manual of Style with Australian spelling.
