[ACLA seminar] Double frames: authors, texts, audiences in original translation

Brigitte Rath, U Innsbruck/FU Berlin; Beatrijs Vanacker, KU Leuven

Writing a text as if it were a translation creates a specific kind of fiction: it overlays the act of authorship with an invented author, and the original text with an invented original in a different language, aimed at a different audience. Original translation does not (only) invite readers to imagine a fictional world, but to imagine a fictional original version of the very text they read.

(M)othering the Transatlantic: Representations of Motherhood in a Transatlantic Context, 2015 ACLA, March 26-29 2014

updated: 
Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - 11:53am
American Comparative Literature Association

In a 2006 Slate Magazine column, Stephen Metcalf asks, "Why is Beloved Beloved?" Why, almost twenty years after publication, does Beloved keep reappearing on the foreground of literary consciousness? Orientating ourselves on Morrison's choice to reimagine and reinvent the story of Margaret Garner, we can similarly ask how the continual haunting of infanticide in Beloved is a formal innovation that interrogates the place of Motherhood (and particularly black Motherhood) in both a slave and neo-slave era.
