  • “My Shadow Has Gone Mad”: Irony and Self-Consciousness in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Shadow

    Author:Eli Park Sorensen

    Abstract: Abstract: Hans Christian Andersen’s international breakthrough as the author of fairytales came during the 1840s. In 1846, Andersen arrived in Italy after a hugely successful but exhausting book tour through several European countries. In Italy, Anderson would write on two works: an autobiography, The True Story of My Life, and a strange—and highly atypical (at least by Andersen’s standards)...

  • “An Aquatic Reverie” | Mallarmé’s Writing on Water and the Naming of Waves

    Author:Clark Lunberry

    Abstract: Abstract: At his home outside Paris, in Valvin, Stéphane Mallarmé spent much time on his small boat dreamily sailing upon the Seine, seeing this body of flowing water as a site for inspiration and inscription. Indeed, Mallarmé once confided to a friend, “I no longer write a poem without an aquatic reverie running through it,” and that, for him, poetry was like an “oar stroke,” and the sail,...

  • Shakespeare and Experimental American Poetry

    Author:Alan Golding

    Abstract: Abstract: Why the particular emphasis proposed in my title on Shakespeare’s importance for experimental or avant-garde American poetry? We can take Shakespeare’s significance for American poetry generally, as for most writers in the English language, as a given. One can certainly trace Shakespeare’s presence in a wide range of more mainstream twentieth-century poetry, from John Berryman to A...

  • When Interfaces Interfere: Crashlands, Cancer, and Embodied Gaming

    Author:Brian Reed

    Abstract: Abstract: In Gameworld Interfaces, Kristine Jørgensen maintains that the best interfaces provide an optimal amount of useful information about a gameworld without becoming obtrusive. Video games are, however, complex objects, and sometimes they serve purposes other than entertaining users through facilitating immersive gameplay. They can, for instance, promote educational and aesthetic ends tha...

  • 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...

  • Metaphorical Explanations for Misuse of the English Preposition IN by CELs: A Corpus Analysis

The use of English prepositions is a great challenge for Chinese English learners (CELs). This essay discusses the misuse of the English spatial preposition IN by CELs, using the data collected from Chinese Learner English Co...
