Inviting Submissions to Living in Languages Journal [ISSN: 2835-8074]

The editors of a scholarly journal, Living in Languages, are pleased to invite you to submit your work, investigations, or studies of translation for the upcoming issue. Living in Languages is an online open source, peer-reviewed graduate journal devoted to translation studies published and archived at the University at Albany. We are a multilingual and interdisciplinary publication, with editors from across the humanities and social sciences.

This issue aims to delve into the multifaceted nature of translation, transcending geographical, linguistic, and disciplinary boundaries. Our scope extends beyond conventional boundaries, delving into translation as a mode of reading and writing, as in relation to ideology, as manifestation of exile, geographic and linguistic displacement, alongside themes of violence and assimilation within cultural and literary contexts. Additionally, we welcome investigations into translation through interpretive, experimental and creative lenses and/or forms.

Essay Topics:

Translation as a mode of reading, writing, and interpretation
Translation and its connections to politics, ideology, and power
Translation and the construction of identity and cultural narratives
Translation as a tool for challenging dominant discourses and amplifying marginalized voices
Translation in colonial and post-colonial contexts
The role of translation in fostering cross-cultural understanding and solidarity
Translation and technology: challenges and opportunities in the digital age
