CfP: Translating German Literary Texts NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association) Toronto, April 30-May 3, 2015
Acknowledgement of creativity and interpretation in translation studies challenges the idea that translation is a simple, uncreative process. Participants in this panel will explore how social, historical and cultural perspectives, creativity, literary analysis and interpretation affect both translations and re-translations of German literary texts of all historical periods, but with a particular interest in 18th- and 19th-century texts. Presentations addressing one's own approaches, experiences, and "transgressive" translations are also welcome. Please submit 250-word abstracts at the following link: https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15182 Please address inquiries to Eleanor ter Horst at <firstname.lastname@example.org> Deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2014.
