PORTUGAL TRANSLATION NEWS
Issue 30. May 2020
The Spring 2020 issue of Translation Matters (Vol. 2 No. 1) is now out, with articles by Gisele Dionísio da Silva, Marco Neves, Jorge Almeida e Pinho, Christina Karakepeli, Yolanda Moreno-Bello, David Swartz, Guilherme da Silva Braga and Alexandra Lopes, book reviews by Isabel Branco, Maria Cantarero Muñoz and David Hardisty, and the inauguration of a new section (‘Epigraph’) devoted to a literary translation of topical relevance. Accessible at http://ojs.letras.up.pt/index.php/tm/issue/view/530.
CALLS FOR PAPERS
Special Issue: ‘Translation Under Dictatorships’, special issue of Translation Matters Vol. 2 No. 2 (Autumn 2020). Although the official call for this special issue has now closed, and we have many received interesting proposals from around the world, we have not had a single one from Portugal! Given the intense research that has been done into translation under the Estado Novo, this is a real pity! The call remains open until the summer for research from/about Portugal. http://ojs.letras.up.pt/index.php/tm/index
Special Issue: Dedalus: No. 26 (1st Quarter of 2022): Coleccionadores de Mundos: tradutores, história e ficção. Deadline for article proposals: 15 September 2020.
By crossing history of translation and the fictionalization of the translator, this number aims to establish how both discourses, historiographical and fictional, are intricately connected and intertwined, but also to rethink, through literature and other fictional arts, history of translation and the image of the translator. Suggestions of themes can be found in call for papers: http://aplc.org.pt/index.php/revista-dedalus. Proposals must be between 700 and 800 words.
Volume: Translating Fear: How fear is (re)produced in the translation of political speeches, literature, newsreels, television shows, advertisements, etc.
6000-to-8000-word chapters, along with an abstract and a brief bio note, to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: 15 May, 2020
