[REMINDER - last days to submit] Unflattening the Encounter: Translation, Travel, and Place: NeMLA 2020

How can we apprehend the “terms of translation” shaping the construction and circulation of texts and artifacts across space and time? What sites and contexts of cultural and linguistic encounter move us to question those terms? Translation can be understood as always entangled with its surroundings, in tension with and inseparable from the place of its construction and of its reception at different times and places, suggesting that the complexity of language relations can remain constant across sites of inquiry; it can also have a flattening effect for the receiver, often blurring the line between “speaking of” and “speaking for”, and obscuring the networks of actors and processes involved in its making.
