Translation as Relation

Centre for Translation (January 7, 2010)

SEMINAR SERIES : Translation seminar series

MAJOR SPEAKER : Bermann, Sandra
LENGTH : 111 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : In our complex world of migration, war, and globalization, translation among languages and cultures is everywhere. As citizens of the 21st century, we inevitably think in and through translation. Yet we have only begun to explore its contemporary modes of operation, its challenges and its promise for study in an international and interdisciplinary context. In my paper, I hope to outline some of these challenges as well as its promise. Looking to some current views of translation, I will discuss ways in which it might be rethought in terms of relation, dialogue and analogy. I will discuss the promise of this way of 'thinking translation' by focusing on a few contemporary ideas about language and literary dissemination. In order to consider these issues more concretely, I will also consider the recent translation history of Dante Alighieri's Commedia.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
