Barricade: A Journal of Antifascism & Translation is a new, biannual print and open-access periodical dedicated to publishing translations of linguistically and temporally diverse works of antifascist and antiauthoritarian literature, including but not limited to short stories, poetry, theater, nonfiction, philosophical/theoretical writing, and excerpts of longer works.
Barricade is a platform for the publication of writing against fascism & authoritarianism & other forms of domination and control.
We believe that power functions in part by controlling the movement of information.
We seek to keep information moving by re-presenting it in translation.
We believe that power functions in part by establishing the illusion of transparency.
We believe that literature and its translation obstruct that illusion.
Barricade seeks translations of literary and theoretical writing against the unequivocality of power, in its many historically, politically, linguistically specific forms.
A barricade is a makeshift form of opposition.
A barricade shows its seams and outlines.
