  • What is Migrant Thinking? Trans, Fusion, and the Bracket

    Author:Ranjan Ghosh

    Abstract: Abstract: This essay introduces Ghosh’s idea of trans(in)fusion and argues out his thesis on “migrant thinking.” What kind of “critical thinking” does trans(in)fusion envisage? Is all envisagement a kind of form? Can critical thinking be envisaged at all? If envisaged, what kind of cosmopolitan and migrant motor does it undertake and initiate? Ghosh talks about the poetics and politics of ...

  • “Of Rare Compatibility”: Jen Bervin’s Silk Poems and Making Kin in the Sericene

    Author:David Perry

    Abstract: Abstract: Scripting what may be read as a “string figure” companion to Donna Haraway’s Chthulucene, Jen Bervin’s 2017 Silk Poems project becomes entangled with the damage of the Anthropocene—and with projects of recuperation in the face of that damage—via a proposed Sericene: an ecopoetic weaving of human-worm-moth symbiosis in silk, a human voicing articulated through the nonhuman person...

  • The Community Interpreter’s Latitude for Action: A Triadic Discourse Interpreting Model (TRIM)

    Author:Lihua Jiang

    Abstract: Sociological communication problems associated with the interpreter’s presence and actions in the community have come into the focus of discussion, leading to such opposing views of the interpreter as a “verbatim” reproducer of messages in another language, on the one hand, or as “advocator,” “cultural broker,” or “conciliator,” on the other hand. This essay aims at exploring the inter...

  • Concepts, Methods, and Media: Three Keywords for a Historiography of Translation Studies

    Author:Yves Gambier

    Abstract: The movement of theories belongs both to the history and the sociology of disciplines, especially to their institutionalization. Epistemology should also be added here, though sometimes disguised as the History of Ideas, sometimes labeled as the Philosophy of Science. One of the major paradoxes, or even contradictions, in TS seems to be the double bind of opening borders and establishing limits...

  • Integrating Culture into Beginner-Level Chinese Language Teaching

    Author:Page 94-103

    Abstract: Culture is widely regarded as imperative for foreign language (FL) education because culture and language intertwine when people use language for communication. Many teachers and scholars who agree with this argument tend to integrate culture into advanced-level language courses. However, culture is insufficiently integrated into beginner-level FL courses. This insufficiency comes from teachers...

  • Ashbery Alpha and Omega: Presentism, Historicism, and Vice Versa

    Author:Barrett Watten

    Abstract: This reading of a single poem from the last collection of verse John Ashbery published before his death in 2017 sees it as an example of a concept of “presentism” that differs from modernist or postmodern accounts of the “present” associated with abstraction or immanence. Rather, Ashbery’s presentism is historical in being based on overlapping and discontinuous linguistic and experiential ...

  • Writing Poetry that Focuses on the Autobiographical

    Author:Hank Lazer

    Abstract: Poetry has other possibilities than the autobiographical. This essay presents an argument against an over-reliance on a Western bourgeois capitalist concept of the self and self-expression in contemporary American poetry. An alternative balance is presented through Zen Buddhist and Daoist perspectives on the self, particularly as seen in the writing of Dogen, ancient Chinese poetry, and, more r...
