Modernism in Translation

Modernism in Translation.

In the wake of this year’s conference theme, the panel seeks to investigate the ways in which modernist writers employed translation in their responses to trauma, war, displacement, totalitarianism and other crises of identity, language, culture and consciousness. Panelists are invited to explore the range of functions that translations have performed – e.g. as modes of reconstruction, as sites of crosslingual and crosscultural negotiation, as acts of protest or testimony, of resistance or subservience to censorship – from both literary and sociopolitical perspectives.

Please submit a 250-300 word abstract to Silvia Guslandi sguslandi@uchicago.edu by March 1 2019
