Central European Journal of Canadian Studies

Volume 10

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Editorial Board is seeking contributions for Volume 10 of the Central European Journal of Canadian Studies/ Revue d’études canadiennes en Europe centrale.

Articles should not exceed 15 pages (27,000 characters with notes, excluding spaces).

We invite articles that examine any area of Canadian Studies. Because the Journal will be read by Canadianists from a variety of disciplines, we encourage submitters to write in a jargon-free style. This will ensure readability among the expert and the general academic public. Use your good judgement to explain potentially alienating terminology or to avoid it altogether.

Also to encourage readability, please keep endnotes to a minimum. Instead, incorporate all relevant information into the body of your paper.

Reviews should not exceed 4 pages (7,200 characters excluding spaces). Reviews for the CE Journal are restricted to 1) books by authors from the Central European region (in any language); 2) books by authors from outside the region that the reviewers feel are particularly useful for teaching or research purposes here; 3) translations of Canadian books that fall within the traditional domain of Canadian Studies. If in doubt, please feel free to contact us.

Reports (on activities or events in the region) should not exceed 1 page (1,800 characters excluding spaces).

General Requirements

The Translation Research Project database

The Translation Research Project database

The TRP database was created as part of a two-year research project by the CEACS that dealt with translations into the languages of the Central European region - Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak and Slovenian. The works under consideration - by both Canadians as well as non-Canadians writing about Canada - covered a very broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The aim was to include all works (including second and further editions) meeting the above criteria, in an effort to obtain an understanding of the changing image(s) of Canada in the countries of the Central European region over the past century and more.

At present the database has approximately 2,500 entries, restricted to books and special editions of journals devoted entirely or in part to Canada. It will be updated annually. In future the database will also be extended to include translations of individual short stories, poems and other texts found in periodicals and anthologies.

The database is freely accessible. Click here to reach the database itself. The Login and Password are the same: guest. Once in, you can browse at will. If there is any specific search that you would like to carry out, but are unable to manage, please get in touch with the CEACS Secretariat (This email address is being protected from spambots.
