Ragusa, 19 - 20 October 2017 The literary translation of Camilleri's series of detective stories featuring Inspector Montalbano are the subject of annual seminars (2013-2016) organised by the University of Cagliari. The forthcoming conference, Ragusa and Montalbano: translating Camilleri’s regionalised voices in AVT, is also a response to those studies and research. However, Montalbano’s global fame is undeniably closely linked to the incredible success of the television series produced by Palomar for RAI TV.
University of Cyprus, Nicosia November 10-12, 2017 The three disciplines of Adaptation Studies, Semiotics, and Translation Studies share a common interest in the transference of texts across modes of signification such as textual, visual, oral, aural, gestural or kinesic. More particularly, Semiotics looks into the interpretation of signs in various semiotic systems, Intersemiotic Translation (Jakobson 1959)1renders linguistic texts into nonverbal signs, and the study of adaptations can include any generic transposition of a text into other modes of representation.

11-13 May 2017, Warsaw SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities Call for Papers Though dissent and protest seem to be strongly linked with politics and with political actions, the range of their senses and uses is much broader and, as Amit Chaudhuri has noticed, dissent is inscribed in the very idea of the literary which, “in its resistance to interpretation, is a peculiar species of dissent.” The common ground of protest and dissent is, very generally, a disagreement with what is, and an expression of the necessity of some change which seems to be standing behind the very gestures of dissension or protestation.
7-9 December 2017 1st Call for Papers call-for-papers-2017-conference The production and circulation of knowledge across temporal and cultural spaces is a well-established research theme among classicists and historians of political thought, ideas, science and medicine, but recent developments have opened up new perspectives on this area of study. The study of social knowledge flows has advanced our understanding of these transit processes in critical and productive ways. While earlier ‘diffusionist’ models of knowledge production and distribution were predicated on the ascendancy of European thought and science, and the treatment of other cultures as no more than producers of data to be collected, theorised and understood, emerging models of social knowledge foreground how the very process of circulation produces new knowledge and recognise the contribution of all actors and locations traversed by such flows over time.
