Translation and the Transnational Past



41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010

Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure

Session Description

Prompted by investigations of the untranslatable (Apter), cultural translation (Bhabha), and cultural mobility (Greenblatt), this panel explores the work of German translations and translators before 1800. Attending to the contingency in translation helps us refine maps of transnational spaces and places, such as the Atlantic and Mediterranean worlds. And exploring local translations allows us to write a supple history of pre-modern translation. May we connect the transnational and the local in the discussion of, for example, Sklaverey?

We seek papers on both accidental and professional translations, both into and out of German. When do gaps between original and translation become explosive? What is the place of interlanguages? How might we theorize the pervasive phenomenon of the translation for which there was never an orginal, i.e., the fake translation?

Please submit abstracts up to 500 words indicating A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee) to both session organizers:
