CONFERENCIA: "CULTURAL TRANSLATION"

Tipo del evento: Acontecimiento

The concept of ‘cultural translation’ apparently comes from field anthropology but has over the last few decades acquired a wide interdisciplinary currency, especially in the areas of Postcolonial discourse and Cultural Studies. Most significantly, it has encroached upon, and threatens to swallow up, the domain of ‘translation’ as a transaction between two languages. I seek to show that this serves the cause of hegemonic Anglophone globalization and is thus not good for the cultural health of the (rest of the) world.

 

Harish Trivedi , former Professor of English at the University of Delhi, was visiting professor at the universities of Chicago and London.  He has co-edited Post-Colonial Translation: Theory and Practice (London 1999) and contributed to The Oxford History of Literary Translation in English , vols. 4 and 5 (Oxford 2006, and forthcoming).
