Call for Submissions for Asymptote’s Experimental Translation Feature

Deadline: 1 November 2015

Asymptote, an international journal dedicated to literary translation, is calling for submissions for its Experimental Translation Feature:

Our January 2016 Special Feature seeks to celebrate the essentially radical nature of all translation by focusing on the use of unconventional practices to present a foreign text in the English language. Such practices may involve homophonic or machine translation, erasure or other degradations, marginalia or collage, cross-genre or cross-modal transformations, adaptions of ancient texts to contemporary contexts, and all manner of procedural techniques…We hope to see source materials from all parts of the world, from ancient, medieval, and more recent times, transformed in unique ways that allow us to approach the text in a new way. And, as always, we are looking to expand our sense of what “translation” is and of what constitutes “experimentation.”
