“Escribir con dos voces. Bilingüismo, contacto idiomático y autotraducción en literaturas ibéricas”

Dolors Poch and Jordi Julià (eds.). València: Universitat de València

Escribir con dos voces [‘Writing with two voices’] offers insights on how language choice influences the production of Iberian bilingual writers, particularly in diglossic situations. This volume aims to contribute to a better understanding of the tension between different linguistic and literary traditions in order to construct a useful model to deepen the comparative study of Iberian cultures. In summary, Escribir con dos voces seeks to shed light on writing processes in Iberian contexts.

This book, coordinated by Dolors Poch and Jordi Julià, includes contributions by authors such as Rexina Rodríguez Vega, Maria do Cebreiro Rábade Villar, Cristina Martínez Tejero, Jon Kortazar, Pere Ballart, Xosé Bolado and Margarida Freixas, among others.

Online conference “World Literature and the Minor: Figuration, Circulation, Translation” (6-7 May 2021)

Online conference “World Literature and the Minor: Figuration, Circulation, Translation” (6-7 May 2021)

The conference “World Literature and the Minor: Figuration, Circulation, Translation” will explore the multifaceted meanings of the minor from different disciplinary perspectives—as it is represented in literary texts (figuration), as it inflects patterns of mobility and reception (circulation), and as it marks processes of linguistic and cultural transfer (translation). The conference will work towards a critical, more inclusive understanding of the minor, both conceptually and methodologically.

By placing the minor at the centre of the debate and exploring the interactions between its multiple meanings, scales and dimensions, the conference will recalibrate the divergence between major and minor and investigate the implications of this divide for the representation, circulation and translation of minority.

While the conference is wider in scope, the concept of “minor literature” has also been frequently applied (and discussed) within Iberian literatures. This conference therefore offers the possibility of placing those discussions and analysis in a global context.

Important dates:

  • 15 December 2020: deadline for abstract submission
  • 15 January 2021: notification of acceptance
  • 1 March 2021: deadline for online registration
  • 20 April 2021: deadline for paper submission
  • 6-7 May 2021: conference
