Call for papers for Issue 13 of the International Journal Syn-Thèses published by the School of French Language and Literature Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

“Once upon a time… and still going on”. The inclusion of the traditional tale in contemporary children’s literature: literary, educational, and translation issues

Over the past forty years, the folk and literary tale has been enjoying an extraordinary revival. Contemporary writers have been inspired by traditional tales and have explored their motifs in a variety of ways in their own fiction, including novels, short stories, plays, as well as new tales. A volume entitled L’épanchement du conte dans la littérature, edited by Christiane Connan-Pintado, Pascale Auraix-Jonchière and Gilles Béhotéguy (2018), brings together several interesting texts that question the relationship of the tale with different literary genres, which it hybridizes by being incorporated into them.

In the forthcoming issue of the journal Syn-Thèses, we propose to address this renewed and hybrid presence of the tale within children’s literature, aiming to highlight the literary, educational, and translation issues that this new tale-writing is confronted with.

The “Geo” turn in Translation Studies

Space and spatiality have been significant coordinates in the study of translation in the West. The concept has long been included in humanities and social sciences too by scholars like Edward Soja (1989); Warf & Arias (2009). This panel aims to question how the concept of “geo” features in translation and analyse translation as a point of intersection and relationality that redefines our concepts of spatial axis and territorial coordinates. This panel will try to bring in disciplines of geometry and geography to the terrain of translation studies and thus include alternative models to expand the field. The etymological origin of ‘geometry’ traces back to the Greek word geometria or “measurement of earth or land”. Similarly ‘geography’ originates from Greek word geographia which means “description of the earth's surface”. The prefix trans- of ‘translation’ means ‘to go beyond’, ‘on the other side’. Thus, when taken together, translation from the geographical and geometrical perspective alludes to the question of movement in terms of land or space. If we take the model of Euclidean Geometry, then the western concept of translational act as a spatial flow can be understood from a geometrical angle as a process of distance-preserving/distance-altering transformation between two metrical/geographical spaces. Again, translation, as a political activity, determines how communities are mapped by their cultural other and as such points out how the binaries of the centre and periphery construct our worldviews based on asymmetrical power relations. Michael Cronin (2000), while exploring the relationship between translation and geographical spaces, has meticulously considered movement both in the context of territorial and narrative space and analysed it through the lens of language. Federico Italiano (2016) has examined how Western spatial imaginations constructed through literary works have been translated across languages, media and epochs and created the idea of the world through cultural differences.
