Translating the Holocaust Panel: NEMLA, Rochester, NY. March 15-18, 2012
Panel on transoation in Holocaust literature, film, graphic novel:
Translation, both literal and figurative, is a central topic in the study of the Holocaust. How is the multilingual nature of concentration camp life represented in these texts? How is translation a metaphor for the act of witnessing? In what ways do second-generation writers grapple with translation due to their linguistic remove from the first generation? Papers on these and other related topics in literature, graphic novels, and film are welcome. Please submit 300 to 500 word abstracts to Andrea Harris at email@example.com.
