New Call for Application (YTH, Issue 3: Translation as Event)


2023 | Issue/Heft 3: Translation as Event. Performing and Staging Translations
[Editors: Marco Agnetta, Larisa Cercel, Brian O'Keeffe] 

The editors of the Yearbook of Translational Hermeneutics invite contributions broadly aimed at relating translation theory and performance studies together, focused specifically on the notion of translation as an event. At issue, in this edition of the Yearbook, is the extent to which the activities, processes and products of translation can be characterized as performance, and whether the profiling of translators as performers illuminates their embodied experience, cognitive operations, and material practice. At issue, moreover, is whether theories and philosophies of the event and eventfulness can assist in describing what happens to a source text when it is translated, performed and transformed into a new guise – or even into a new mode of being. This goes particularly for texts subject to intersemiotic and intermedial translation and which are accordingly performed thanks to other modalities of expression.

No. 1 (2021): Engaging with Translation. New Readings of George Steiner's After Babel
YTH 1: Engaging with Translation

The first issue of the Yearbook of Translational hermeneutics (YTH) is dedicated to a ‘classic’ representative of the hermeneutic approach to translation studies, namely George Steiner, who passed away in February 2020. Published under the auspices of the Research Centre Hermeneutik und Kreativität, this issue is devoted to a celebration of Steiner’s 90th birthday (2019) and to the 45th anniversary of After Babel, which first appeared in 1975. After Babel has not lost its power to galvanise contemporary research in translation and interpretation studies even today. This installment of the Yearbook of Translational Hermeneutics hosts a dozen scholars’ engagements with Steiner’s work, as well as a supplement devoted to tributes to the author, book reviews and a discussion (forum).
