The Medieval Translator

The conference will focus on linguistic fragmentation as a means of cultural inclusion. In the passage from late antiquity to the high Middle Ages, a number of written translations in various vernaculars and dialects already appear – suffice it to think of the first attempts at translating the Bible, of the effect of Carolingian culture, or of King Alfred’s cultural policy, aimed at making vernaculars the vehicle of faith and knowledge. As we move towards the late Middle Ages, translation becomes an essential instrument for the transmission of literature, religion and science. The proliferation of translations, through the linguistic fragmentation represented by target languages, allowed the transferral of texts to an ever-wider audience.

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.

Can we theorize World Literature as an intellectual and creative practice of resistance against the cultural imperialism embodied by the idea of the Global, the celebration of what Graham Hubbard calls the “postcolonial exotic,” and the hegemony of the English language? Is there a degree of antagonism between World Literature and the Global--or between the notions of translation and lingua franca? In what ways have these various terms been conflated or exchanged, and what do these conceptual entanglements tell us about the stakes and methodology of World Literature as a theory, a field of inquiry, and an institution?

****This is a CFP for the 2020 ACLA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, March 19-22, 2020.***

In The Anatomy of Fascism, Robert Paxton reminds us that fascism has always proved difficult to define. Fascism “seemed to come from nowhere.” Though it “took on multiple and varied forms” and “exalted hatred and violence in the name of national prowess,” it still “managed to appeal to prestigious and well-educated statesmen, entrepreneurs, professionals, artists, and intellectuals.” Despite this, “everyone is” nonetheless, “sure they know what fascism is.”

How can academics attempt to faithfully translate, interpret, analyze, and/or discuss the creative narratives of cultures and communities to which they have no personal connection? This roundtable will insist that this question, although immensely complex, is not rhetorical—and that we, as students and scholars of literature, language, and culture, are positioned to conduct particularly constructive explorations into possible answers.

Socialist Side of World Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, August 6, 2019 - 12:19pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

This proposal invites scholars to address the connection between Socialist Realism(s) and world literatures within and beyond the Soviet Union and the Cold War. As I. Anisimov stated in 1959 that, in the period following the October Revolution, the leading talents of world literature came to the side of the Socialist Revolution, since Socialist literatures associated with the new reality were rapidly developing not only in the Socialist world, but also in the capitalist world, where the best part of literature has joined battle to change reality. However, in the past decades the Socialist side of World Literature has not gotten the proper attention in World Literature studies.
