    Abstract:
      Since 1991 the Valley of the Shadow Project at the University of Virginia has experimented to see what possibilities new technologies might present for the understanding of history. The project has been quite successful in reaching a broad audience. But few similar projects are emerging, and we need to reconsider many aspects of institutional organization and priorities to foster new works of digital scholarship.

    Subject Headings:
    • Translating and interpreting -- Philosophy.
    • Creative writing (Higher education) -- United States.
    Abstract:
      What is the publisher's role in the dissemination of translations, and how do they encourage readers to see the contextual links between history, politics, poetry, and translation? What dangers and advantages does the poet as translator face? Unlike the scholar-translator, the poet-translator is always a poet, with his own poetry at stake, and sometimes self-taught, with only a modest knowledge of the field entered. Will he impose his poetics on the text he is translating? Has he mastered the foreign language and literature, or should he turn to a translation team? Are graduate degree writing programs too dependent on English-language texts? Should students learn to read a second language well enough to take a translation workshop in that language? This article was originally presented as a paper on the panel 'Poet as Translator: Promethean Risk' at the 2003 Associated Writers Program Conference.

    • Canadian literature -- 20th century -- Periodicals.
    • Canadian literature -- 20th century -- History and criticism.
    • Literature -- Research -- Methodology.
    Abstract:
      Scholarly publishing is rarely examined as a global contributor to a field of research. But its value as a map to the evolution of a discipline can be inestimable. The output of journals can be the key to understanding shifts in perspective and, in the case described in the following essay, may ultimately provide an overview of an instance in the development of Canadian literature.
