Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal (ISSN 2053-9665) is delighted to announce a new call for contributions to a future special issue with a theme of The Effect of Plurality in Translation. Abstracts are sought for consideration by a 1st November 2021 deadline. This special issue of the  journal seeks contributions from students at master’s and doctoral level as well as from early career academics, who prioritise an interdisciplinary perspective in their research projects. With the desire to make space for reflections on plurilingual diversity and the challenges arising therefrom for translation, this issue is intended to constitute a collection of articles in which knowledge and ideas are shared for the purpose of improving practices of reading, writing, teaching, and translating.

Our hope is to incorporate thought-provoking contributions addressing the possible effects of plurality in linguistic, conceptual, and cultural translation. Suggested areas of focus might include, but not be limited to, the following aspects:

  • Choices and strategies to translate plurilingual texts
  • Philosophical and theoretical approaches for translating the effects of more than two languages
  • Plurilingual writers, thinkers, and translators, their histories and identities
  • Teaching bilingual texts in a plurilingual classroom
  • Teaching plurilingual text in a bilingual classroom
  • Translating one concept into multiple languages

To be considered as a contributor for this issue, please submit a 300-word abstract, accompanied by your name and institutional affiliation via email to Melissa Pawelski, melissa.pawelski@warwick.ac.uk by Monday 1st November 2021. Please make sure to include ‘Exchanges Special Issue’ in the subject line. Should your contribution be accepted, you will be asked to submit your full paper, by Monday, 14th March 2022.
