Centre for Translation (March 3, 2011)

SEMINAR SERIES : Translation Seminar Series

MAJOR SPEAKER : Milton, John
LENGTH : 112 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : Adaptation Studies have become very popular in recent years in many university departments, especially those of English Literature and Film Studies, with a growing number of books, conferences and journals in the area. This talk begins by examining the interface (or lack of interface) between Translation Studies and Adaptation Studies, also introducing the concept of appropriation, and examples will be given from adaptations and appropriations of the works of William Shakespeare, particularly Othello. The talk then introduces the ideas of the Brazilian translation poet, translator and translation theorist, Haroldo de Campos (1929-2003), especially his notion of recreation and his use of the Brazilian modernist concept of anthropophagy.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
