Call for Papers

The Norwich Papers editorial team is pleased to announce its call for papers for Issue 22, to be published in 2014. The theme of the issue is ‘Voice and Silence in Translation’. We welcome articles from anyone with an interest in the topic, regardless of experience, and are looking for a broad range of contributions covering a variety of languages and cultures and engaging with the many possible interpretations of this theme. Possible topics could include, but are by no means limited to:


  • The individual voice of the translator
  • What is left unsaid or implicit in translation
  • Translation and censorship
  • Particular issues in the translation of texts intended to be read aloud
  • Heteroglossia in translated texts


These are only a few suggestions – there are many other possible approaches, so we hope the theme will inspire you in some way! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.


Articles should be 4000-5000 words in length and must be written in English. Submissions should be received no later than Wednesday 30th April 2014. We will send a free copy of Issue 22 to all whose contributions we are able to publish.


Please submit papers to norwichpapers@uea.ac.uk
