No. 23 (2022): Into the Translation for Museums, Festivals, and the Stage: Creativity and the Transmedial Turn
Edited by Alessandra Rizzo
With the objective of scrutinising general standards, specific criteria and levels of creativity applied to translation practices, especially in light of recent research in audiovisual consumption and reception, creativity and transcreation, and arts accessibility and translation for the arts, the special issue seeks to contextualise the numerous shifts within the arts in relation to the theoretical and practical challenges that our increasingly technological culture poses for the modes of translation and accessibility. The contributors to the issue have shed light upon a variety of areas where translation, often combined with creativity, intervenes to localise aesthetic products under the network of transmediality. Attention is paid to three main areas within the cultural sector, namely, museums, festivals, and theatres.
