Call for Papers: “Expanded Translation”, 25 August, 2017

Poetry in Expanded Translation II:

Intersemiotic Translation—Between Text & Image

International interdisciplinary conference 
8 – 10 November 2017
Université de Haute-Alsace, Mulhouse, France.

Deadline for abstracts 25/08/17

Poetry in Expanded Translation II: Between Text and Image will consider the relationship between poetry and visual texts as a form of translation. It will also explore the place of language within visual works as poetic discourse and investigate the reception of poetry and visual art across linguistic boundaries. Transposition will therefore be examined alongside translation as a means of exploring interlingual and intersemiotic crossovers. These will include sound poetry’s transformation into written score, concrete or visual poetry written across languages, and literary work transformed into visual art works. Reception of verbo-visual translation in and out of book formats will be a central focus.

Call for Papers: “Intersemiotic Translation, Adaptation, Transposition: Saying Almost the Same Thing?”, 30 April, 2017

The first international interdisciplinary conference on “Intersemiotic Translation, Adaptation, Transposition: Saying Almost the Same Thing?” will be held at the University of Cyprus, on November 10-12, 2017. The conference aims at bringing together scholars from three different disciplines, Translation Studies, Semiotics, and Adaptation Studies, all of which look into intersemiotic crossovers. Join us in Cyprus to investigate common ground and divergence, as well as potential theoretical osmosis across disciplinary boundaries.

We welcome abstracts on textual transfer across semiotic systems, including ballet, opera, film and theater, comics, graphic novels and manga, photography and painting, video-games, website localization, hypertexts and multimodal texts, to name but a few.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: April 30, 2017
Notification of acceptance: May 31, 2017
Deadline for registration: September 15, 2017
