Transtrad Editorial Project
(Date: 18 July 2004)
Volunteer work without commitment is something that is hard for us to imagine: now, the Transtrad editorial project will add another dimension to our activities.
2) Selection of issues and texts
The issues chosen will deal with global questions that have been focused upon in the social forums. The selected texts should discuss issues in an original and relevant way; the distribution of the texts will contribute to a more pluralistic way of thinking, in contrast to the ideas disseminated in the media, whose viewpoint is one-sided to the degree of proto-totalitarianism.
These reflective texts will be translated by the Transtrad volunteer network, in adherence to current work principles. The name of the author, as well as those of the translator and proofreader, will always be given in the final collection.
The distribution of the collection, which will take place solely in the non-profit arena, means that:
The collections of texts could be distributed, as and when possible, by the following: ourselves, sympathetic organisations, the social forums, the Internet, and as hard copy.
II- First project: Dossier on Work
We propose that the first collection be dedicated to the issue of work. It will contain around ten articles, from several countries and cultures, and will be translated into five languages: German, English, Spanish, Italian and French.
Given that the range of this subject is particularly vast, we have selected some general categories ˆ history of work; work and society; first-hand accounts of work; and literary representations of work ˆ and we have developed an initial structural outline as a rough guideline. Therefore, the project could be organised as follows:
This framework can be further developed, of course, depending on the contributions received.
III Call for participants
We would like to involve all interested Transtrad volunteers, and invite you to send us texts of your choice (those which have aroused your curiosity, made you think or have moved you), according to these guidelines:
We look forward to reading your texts.
