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

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?

This pedagogical panel—to be held at the BWWC annual conference June 2-5 2016 in Athens, GA—will address the conference theme of "Making a Scene" as it explores why students are resistant to particular approaches or texts, and how we, as teachers, can "make a scene" ourselves to spark involvement, foster interest, and propagate engagement with vital works. We will explore the various ways that 18th and 19th century texts by women writers have been met with unexpected resistance, empty criticism, or unproductive conflict in seminars, which impedes successful exchange of ideas.
