(Un)restrained Intentions: Translation and Adaptation in Literature and Culture

updated: 
Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 9:47am
Department of English, McGill University

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?

Public/Private: Navigating the Materiality of Home Economics (proposal due on Jan. 8)

updated: 
Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 8:37am
American Studies Association in Denver 2016

I am proposing a panel that centers on the material realities of the flows, negotiations, and exchanges between the "public" space of political economies/markets and the "private" space of domestic economies/ecologies. Broadly, this panel is focused on the impacts of the exchanges between the two spaces, how they bleed into each other, and ultimately to, in the words of the conference theme, to make "a claim on the way where we are shapes and shakes up the grounding and grounded-ness of the work we imagine, make, perceive, and do."
Subject area, time period, and media are open. My own work focuses on women's domestic nonfiction and homemaking magazines from the early Cold War period.

"Changer ou Partir" : poétique de l'exil

"Changer ou partir" : poétique de l'exil

Dans un contexte d'instabilité politique accrue doublé d'une crise économique prolongée, il n'est guère étonnant de constater que les discours d'extrême droite opposent de plus en plus ouvertement une politique d'assimilation à la promotion de la différence qui s'est imposée comme valeur sociale à partir des études culturelles1. « Changer ou partir » : voilà le choix auquel l'ethos nationaliste confronte aujourd'hui encore les minorités culturelles, comme l'a récemment commenté Marie-Michèle Sioui en résumant ainsi la posture que la division québécoise de la PÉGIDA a adoptée à l'égard des communautés musulmanes.
