Aestheticizing Politics/Politicizing Aesthetics: St. Louis Symposium on Radicalism in U.S. Arts

The past seven years have seen a resurgence of the radical right. In this resurgence, art and literature have played a prominent role. Senior advisors to the Trump administration cited novels as specific influences on federal policy; Jordan Peterson has disguised right-wing manifestos as self-help volumes, hoodwinking young men to the tune of millions; the internet has seen an overwhelming explosion of white supremacist digital art. Walter Benjamin’s dictum that fascism seeks to “aestheticize politics” endures. 

Bodies in Translation

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

From the blazon of Elizabethan poetry to the Human Genome Project, humans have been writing the body for centuries. In his book Barthes, Roland Barthes ponders the translation of the body from flesh to paper, stating, “To write the body. Neither the skin, nor the muscles, nor the bones, nor the nerves, but the rest: an awkward, fibrous, shaggy, raveled thing, a clown’s coat” (180). In his process of writing the body, Barthes strips away surfaces to reveal something other, something that he finds more representative of himself or his essence.

Speaking the Unspeakable: Representing Trauma

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:39pm
Allie Wood Reichert / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

The representation of traumatic experience is a fraught conversation in literary and media studies. Cathy Caruth famously argued for the “unspeakability” of trauma; other scholars such as Naomi Mandel argue that emphasizing the limits of language can inadvertently silence, restrict, and ignore the material and corporeal existence of suffering. This session invites panelists to consider representing and witnessing trauma as acts of translation across the border of un/representability. Although our central question originates in discussions of language and texts, panelists are also encouraged to consider trauma’s appearance across disciplines and forms, such as visual culture, media, and/or performance.

« The Translator at Work: Neutrality in Translation and Interpreting »

Translators and interpreters are expected to be neutral mediators who facilitate dialogue and enable understanding and cooperation between speakers who do not speak the same language. Research has shown, however, that the transfer of information from one language to another is rarely performed without making certain contributions that go beyond the mere rendition of the message being transferred. Translation is a product of cross-cultural interactions that requires linguistic and at times, sociopolitical or even ideological changes.
