The May 2018 issue of the Flinders-based online journal Transnational Literature is available and packed full of rich content, underlined by a prominent theme of translation.
Accessible here, Transnational Literature is published twice annually in May and November and features contributions from writers and scholars across the globe. The 20th issue is a wealth of articles, poems, stories, special features, translations and book reviews.
Translation is a particularly prominent theme in this issue, including a feature article by Lotta Schneidemesser on the challenges facing a German translator of Samoan poetry that has been written in English.
With five short stories set in India, Japan, Kuwait and the US and 22 book reviews, the May issue is appropriately rich and varied as the last for longstanding journal editor Dr Gillian Dooley.
Dr Dooley, who built up the journal in the role of general editor since its inception in 2008, is completing a decade with the publication to focus on other interests.
