Translation of Resistance Literature

This panel will address the translation of resistance literature. Since this literature is usually intended for a local audience and is written in the local language of the resistance,should it be translated into other languages? Does translation benefit the resistance or does it come as a detriment to it? Speakers are encouraged to draw upon their own experiences in translating resistance literature if possible. Please submit 250-300 word abstract to Riham Alhossary (ralhoss1@binghamton.edu)

Please note: A publishing house is interested in publishing a volume on this topic.
