Call for Submissions: In Translation: A student discussion of migration, language, and identity
Sponsored by the UIC AANAPISI Initiative
In Translation is seeking articles, essays, and original artwork for publication in the annual edition, released Fall 2015. The purpose of this magazine is to communicate to the UIC community at large about the lives and experiences of UIC students and writers. Multilingual and English language learning writers are especially encouraged to submit. Essays capturing the unique beauty of multilingual voices is especially desirable.
Submissions can be made in two categories:
This first category is for students writing about migration, language, and identity while using academic discourse. This category includes but is not limited to essays written for academic courses.
Submissions to this category can include but are not limited to memoirs, feature articles, and narratives about the lives of UIC students and their experiences with language and identity. While the journal seeks stories about true experiences and the real opinions of students, prose style may take on the standards of any discourse, from public to Non-Western. Any pieces submitted in a language other than English should be accompanied by an English translation: any texts selected for publication using a language other than English will be published in both/all languages submitted. Code-meshed or multilingual texts (containing a mix of languages or varieties) do not need translations if the meaning can be understood from context.
Deadline for submission is May 15th, 2015. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
