Translation and adaptation are important sites of contestation for theory and philosophical inquiry, especially in the current atmosphere of globalization, intercultural interaction, and cultural exchange. Is the translator a "traitor," as the Italian proverb tells us? Or is the translator what L.R. Lind imagines to be "a man without a country [lingering] upon national boundaries, seeking what he may bring home to that strange limbo that lies between one tongue and another"? What does it mean to adapt artistic materials from one cultural context to another? What are the political implications of such an exchange? How do artists overcome linguistic or artistic incommensurability?
