INTERSEMIOTIC AND INTERMEDIAL TRANSLATION

ISSUE EDITOR: RINDON KUNDU

LAST DATE OF SUBMISSION: 30th April, 2014

Translation Studies is a discipline of interdisciplinary and intermedial studies and research. It is still a growing field and emerging discipline in India like other many more nations. Intersemiotic translation or translation from one sign system to another is an emerging trend and comparatively new definition of translation which is not as such popularly known. Intersemiotic translation finds the relations between literature, film, fine arts, performance studies etc. It brings two things, one side it is an interdisciplinary study of different texts, themes or an intermedial study of same theme in different media.  Roman Jackobson has introduced the idea of intersemiotic translation and it has been now well accepted in the discipline of translation studies across the world. This is the study of interrelations in many ways, style, narrative, image, text etc. Interdisciplinarity has been practicing since long time in different disciplines as literary adaptation of films introduced an interdisciplinary study but in intersemiotic translation it has been considered not only as an adaptation but also a translation and it considers every art form related to the filmic adaptation and as a translation or method or tool of translation. Intermediality is an integral part of intersemiotic translation and it reads a text in many mediums as a translation of a short story into a film, into a theatre and a translation into another language. 

Many more research has been done in different parts of the world in this area. But still it is in its infancy, there are lots of possibilities in this field. This issue is an initiative to bring this awareness among the people to whom this area is still unexplored. And it will be a potential contribution to the study of Intersemiotic translation and translation studies as a whole in India.

CALL FOR PAPERS

STARDOM AND CELEBRITY IN CONTEMPORARY INDIA

Issue Editor- Rakesh Ramamoorthy

Asst. Professor of English, St.John’s College.

LAST DATE OF SUBMISSION: 31st May, 2014

Shahrukh Khan, Anna Hazare, M.S. Dhoni, Shiney Ahuja, A.R. Rahman, M.S. Subbalekshmi, Saina Nehwal, Arundhati Roy, Sanjay Dutt, Vava Suresh…….

A random list of famous Indians such as the one given above is enough to remind one of the wide range of celebrities who are in the limelight in contemporary India. They range from film stars to politicians, from sport stars to activists, from darlings of the masses to widely hated ‘villains’, from pan-Indian and global celebrities to stars whose fame exists within specific regions.

The forthcoming issue of IJCLTS will seek to decode the politics of stardom in post-1990s India. The informing assumption is that there is no single culture of celebrity and the issue will endeavor to highlight the co-existence of multiple domains of celebrity culture in India. We invite scholars all over the world to submit critical essays that are analytic and that are informed by the extant work on celebrity studies. The areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Ø  Theorizing the Indian celebrity

Ø  The global circulation of Indian celebrities such as Shahrukh Khan, A.R. Rahman etc.

Ø  The apparatuses of the Celebrity Industry in India: The media (magazines, websites, TV shows), the events (Film launches), product tie-ins etc.

Ø  The conventional domains of stardom: Authors, Filmstars, Sports Stars etc.

Ø  Crime and Celebrity: Criminals and victims, especially the fame (or notoriety) accrued in conjunction with rape cases.

Ø  The public intellectual/activist as celebrity.

Ø  Fandom: Study of Fan identities across various domains of celebrities, including the study of Fan Clubs (online as well as ‘real life’)

The pertinent master categories of India studies – class, caste, gender and region – could inform the prospective contributions. In keeping with the overall scope of the journal, we would especially welcome comparatist approaches to celebrity studies and would welcome works that focus on regional language representations and analysis of celebrities whose fame circulates within certain regions.

 

We invite original, unpublished and innovative work from across the disciplines and across the world. The extent of the essays should be between 3000-5000 words. We also welcome shorter but rigorously analytic pieces (500-1500 words) whose scope is less extensive than that of an essay but which raises a pertinent point regarding celebrity culture. Besides the articles on above said topics we invite TRANSLATIONS, INTERVIEWS, and BOOK REVIEWS etc. on any area. All submissions should adhere to the MLA 7th edition style sheet, failing which they would be rejected without any notice the quality of the work notwithstanding. Paper can be sent to ijclts2013@gmail.com by 31st May 2014. No paper will be accepted after the dead line. For further enquiries please feel free to contact the issue editor (rakeshmoorthy@gmail.com) or the editors.

BOOK HISTORY STUDIES

 

Entry of books in our civilization has changed the concept and the way of achieving knowledge. Book has been developing through the ages of development of human civilization. Book itself encounters many conflicts with politics of different cultures. We have seen many books to be banned, many books are categorized based on the ages of the readers, many books dominate a particular time, books as tool of power, tool of resistance, we have seen book as a token of love, boos as business and book as an art. Book is also deeply rooted with complex human behavior.  Hence book itself can write an intellectual and cultural history of a civilization or a culture. In this issue we would like to gather the knowledge of multifaceted accounts, actions and existences of books across the culture.
