MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities 15

  27 January 2021


MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities is an electronic open-access journal aimed particularly at postgraduate and early career researchers. In this fifteenth volume our contributors explore the theme of Echo, in a range of articles spanning literature from the fourteenth century to the twenty-first, and examining works in Spanish, Italian, French, English, and German. Resounding through these disparate threads is the heterogenous potential of the echo as a symbol. Translation, subjectivity, memory, and trauma can all be viewed through the fragmented, plural, and communicative nature of echoes. This quality of (mis)communication speaks directly to our remit as a multilingual journal, and is a powerful idea in the continuing study of Comparative Literature.
