Metamorphoses: A Journal of Literary Translation
We are working on a special issue dedicated to contemporary Brazilian fiction for the translation journal Metamorphoses. This anthology will be an important contribution in English to the field of Brazilian Studies. I am looking for a student who is interested in working closely with me to learn how to evaluate and refine a translation, how to edit scholarly prose, and how to check references. Tasks will also include corresponding with contributors about revisions and proofreading, learning how to use InDesign for layout, and updating the website. Language experience in Portuguese would be a help, but is not required. Strong organizational skills are a must.
