CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR VOLUME 7 OF

Katherine Mansfield Studies

(THE PEER-REVIEWED YEARBOOK OF THE KATHERINE MANSFIELD SOCIETY)

KATHERINE MANSFIELD AND TRANSLATION

Guest Editor: Professor Claire Davison (Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris)

The theme of this volume is a timely recognition of the importance to Katherine Mansfield of translating and translation. 2014 sees the publication of two books revealing the extent to which she devoted energy to the processes of translation: Volume 3 of the Edinburgh Edition of the Collected Works of Katherine Mansfield – The Poetry and Critical Writing, edited by Gerri Kimber and Angela Smith, and Translation as Collaboration: Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield and S.S. Koteliansky by Claire Davison. Mansfield’s own stories have been continuously and widely translated, most recently into Slovakian by Janka Kascakova.

This volume seeks essays that address all aspects of Katherine Mansfield and translation, whether linguistic translations or translations in a broader sense, including adaptations, visual representations and creative rewritings. We encourage contributions that discuss inventive, creative, exploratory translations, dislocations and transitions. Topics might also include, but are not limited to:

· Mansfield as translator

· Translating Mansfield

· Transformative effects of Mansfield in translation

· Mansfield reading translations

· Reading Mansfield in translation

· Mansfield’s translators

· Mansfield from a translation theory perspective

· Mansfield and her translation collaborators
