S13: Intralingual Translation: Rewriting for new contexts and readers
This interdisciplinary seminar will invite participants to explore the ways in which texts are rewritten and adapted for new contexts and readers. Such rewriting, or intralingual translation (Jakobson1959), may include the paratext (Genette 1987), such as illustrations, jacket cover or typography, or the linguistic text itself. Papers may focus on the sociohistorical context that requires modernizing a text, such as religious or classical texts, or on the rewriting for a new readership, such as adapting scientific texts for the lay reader. Papers can also address topics such as textual editing, the role of ideological norms in intralingual translation, or more general theoretical and methodological issues.
