Self & Identity IN TRANSLATION

POSTGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM at the University of East Anglia, School of
Literature & Creative Writing

4-5 February 2006 / Elizabeth Fry Building / UEA, Norwich, UK

A two-day postgraduate symposium at the University of East Anglia that
aims to explore the presences of subjectivity, identity and selfhood
in the translator's work and the translation event/text

Possible directions include:

§ auto/biographic presences in translation as personal expression or
§ creative writers turning to translation
§ problematic types of translation –e.g. self-translation, pseudotranslation
§ how are historical/cultural, sexual, national or other identities
transferred or transformed through translation?
§ psychological and cognitive contexts of translation and interpreting
§ socio-political contexts and/or (personal) ideologies.
§ spaces between ethical obligations and subjective appropriations
§ the translation of marginal and/or minority communities –translation
as voicing
§ how does globalisation provide new challenges for the translation of
alternative/subversive/dissident narratives?
§ visible and invisible translators. How can translation theory, from
DTS to Derrida and interpreting studies engage with issues of
identity, subjectivity and selfhood?
