Metamorphoses is the journal of the Five College
Faculty Seminar on Literary translation. Published in
the spring and fall, the journal provides a forum for literary
translation out of (and into) all languages, and for papers
on the theory and practice of literary translation.

The next general issue is scheduled to appear in Spring 2019. The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2018. We have a rolling acceptance policy.

The 2018 Double Issue is dedicated to languages and literatures of China and the Chinese diaspora.
