CFP: Inverbis – Translating the Margin

Inverbis Special Issue (2018) Translating the margin: Lost voices in the aesthetic discourse

This special issue aims at investigating and presenting concrete examples of translation as a linguistic and cultural expedient that reveals migrant and refugee experiences as counternarratives. The objective is to demonstrate, on the one hand, how translation is involved in the production and dissemination of counter-narratives aiming at the re-telling of experiences of displacement as a result of conflict, persecution, and famine. And, on the other hand, how the migrant presence in the receiving country acts as a stimulus to the creation of an international network of filmmakers, musicians, artists and activists who are capturing and responding to individual stories of struggle and success in the migrant and refugee communities.

Deadline: 15 September 2017 for submission of proposal (approximately 700 words excluding references) and short bio-bibliographical profile to:

Alessandra Rizzo (University of Palermo), This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Karen Seago (City University London), This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
