For our next topical volume, we suggest the theme of 'translation' in its widest metaphorical sense relating to the Humanities, translating cultures, literatures, values, ideals, concepts, and material conditions. Humanities are essentially concerned with addressing the human needs, dreams, hopes, and values, and we can only hope to survive if mankind collaborates. This will only be possible if there is a good degree of communication, which in turn is based on translation.
