About Us

Caesurae is a caravan of ideas intersecting between cultures, disciplines, philosophy and narrative.


Caesurae is the creative pause, in the midst of the breathless rush of life, the liminal space for thought, creativity and dialogics of creative and critical empathy.


Caesurae, offers to take a sneak peek into the art and problematics of cultural translation. Staying true to our theme, we invite the readers to pause and ponder, to critique, to discuss the various counterpoints of cultural translation. We begin the dialogue, and we expect the readers and the future contributors to pick up the thread of cultural discourse, through music, creative writing, painting, photography and of course academic articles.


Caesurae: Poetics of Cultural Translation is a peer reviewed interdisciplinary international e- journal, split into phenomenological intermissions of

·       Mana, a section for poems and creative prose and translation/transcreation 

·       Interventions which is all about critical essays.

·       Ekhphrases, which includes interviews of creative people, genres of music, art, painting and photography.

·       Spring Rhythm, a section for the youth, which includes their creative thoughts and ideas, they wish to share with us. 

·      A Special Feature, based on a theme, which is a cantankerous punch of poetics, theory and praxis.

·       Film Studies

·       Translation Studies
