   talks on translation

   transversal web journal

   "Talks on translation" is in fact a cluster of six interviews
   discussing the topic of translation from different angles: philosophy,
   cultural and literary theory, political activism, critical reflexion
   on migration, globalization, European integration, etc. The partners
   in the dialogues are a British philosophy professor curious about how
   modernism functions beyond its allegedly original context; an
   Indologist and feminist philosopher, herself a cosmopolitan migrant,
   speculating on the notion of mother tongue; a German cultural theorist
   who wrote a book about "cultural turns" (and a "translational turn"
   among them); an American professor of Slavic and Comparative
   literature who is the author of "A Manifesto of Cultural Translation";
   a theorist from Paris, director of the famous international journal of
   critical thought "Transeuropéennes" and political activist who
   reflects on translation in the context of European integration; a
   professor from Tamkang University (Taiwan), an ex-American living in
   East Asia, interested in heterolinguality and the phenomenon of broken
   languages. What do they all have in common? At least the fact that in
   each of their particular fields translation has a problem to solve.
