Call for Papers: Dialects in Translation

As standard languages spoken by populations at national levels expand their grip over literature, art, culture, education, employment, and media, the dialects that historically developed alongside the selected standards—like Picard, Walloon, West Vlaams, Tuscan, or Northern Haitian Creole—are, at best, oral traditions, and, at worst, languages threatened by extinction. With the goal of preserving and better understanding these languages that thrive in the shadows of standard languages, we invite writers, translators, and theoreticians of dialects to submit dialect texts and English translations to Delos.

Please visit our Author Guidelines page for instructions on submitting to Delos.
