Politics of Translation – Translation of Cultures
American University of Paris – University of Kent, Paris – University of London in Paris – Columbia University
Continuing the work of last year, this seminar series remains interested in exploring work that might help us answer some of these questions and their spin-offs:
- What are the spaces of translation today, and how do they function?
- What are the temporalities of translations and how has that changed?
- What in translation is irreducible to a politics of translation?
- Is translation excessive?
- What is the vitality of translation?
Papers will be delivered in English. They are open to the public, if you have any questions about access, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
