23 Jan Literature and Global Culture: The Voice of the Translator
Friday, January 23-24 2015 / 8:30 AM
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
Our conference addresses current debates surrounding untranslatability and its implications within the postcolonial context of globalization. We have invited scholars and translators from diverse disciplines and perspectives to reflect on the basic notions of appropriation as well as the contextualized poetics that often shape the translations we read and produce; in particular, we anticipate stimulating results from the integration of the historical perspective with contemporary views.
