Call for Papers: Translation and Adaptation of Comics (28/02)

The translation and adaptation of Comics

Universität Hildesheim (Bühler Campus), Hildesheim, 31.10.–2.11.2014

Up to the present day translation studies have paid little attention to
Comics. There are many possible reasons for this. Research within the
discipline has for a long time almost exclusively focused on verbal texts.
On one hand, since the 1990s it had devoted more attention to audio-visual
texts, but a clear emphasis has been with those inter- and intra-lingual

translation, a transdisciplinary journal  announces its first call for papers on Memory.

Special issue: Translating memory across cultures and disciplines

Guest editors: Bella Brodzki (Sarah Lawrence College, NY) and Cristina Demaria (University of Bologna, Italy)


This special issue will establish a dialogue with and among scholars working on the intersections between translation studies and memory studies as they are presently configured andmight be envisioned in the future.

They are interrelated: (1) memory—as the retrieval, reconstruction, inscription, and leaving of traces and their effects—plays a central role in any translation process, and (2) translationthe transformative character of translation is inherent in every memory and memorializing act.

International Conference
Indo-Hispanic Dialogue: Bridging the Cultural Gap
March 6 – 8, 2013, Hyderabad
Centre for Study of Foreign Languages,
School of Humanities, University of Hyderabad, India

investments of the Indian companies in the South American market have
increased drastically in recent times. For the growing bilateral and
multilateral relations with these countries to have an enduring effect there
is need for an academic engagement with the whole domain of mutual cultural
understanding of the societies involved.… [ Va' avanti ]
