Submission call: Translation and Women – Exploring the Indian Subcontinent

Translation as an act exists in the intersection of the creative and the critical. In engaging with different language systems it opens up new dialogic spaces.

A significant translation is therefore as much a political choice as it is a creative one. In the Indian Subcontinent, one Read More …

Call for Papers: Translation and Comics

Estudios de Traducción Call for Papers: Translation and Comics The translation of comics shows certain specificities inherent to the medium that transcend its interlinguistic dimension (Reyns-Chikuma & Tarif 2016). Consequently, it is commonly defined as a hybrid discipline conditioned by an equally hybrid medium that blurs the boundaries between the categories seeing/reading through texts, paratexts and images. In such a context, we can re-read John Berger’s words under new light: “It is seeing which establishes our place in the surrounding world; we explain that world with words, but words can never undo the fact that we are surrounded by it” Read More …
