Lost (and found) in translation

24 April 2017, 18:00 - 20:00
Cambridge campus

Guest speaker: Professor Verena Dolle, Giessen University, Germany

Professor Verena Dolle from Giessen University will examine in how far cultural encounters can be regarded as violent clashes or as negotiation of differences. Drawing on Bachmann-Medick's ideas on cultural translation processes, Professor Dolle will ask to what extent translation (with respect to languages, texts and cultures) serves not to cover but to expose differences.
