TURIN, 11-12 FEBRUARY 2013
International conference on the ethics of translation “Le frontiere dell’altro/The Frontiers of the Other”
The problem of translation has received in recent years renewed attention, but it has been mostly approached from a linguistic or ontological perspective. This conference will focus on another aspect, which most theoretical-linguistic discussions have overlooked, addressing the political and ethical implications of translation: through the work of translation – a work unfairly vilified in the literary production – a meeting of cultures, languages, and different worlds takes place, which has a great ethical and political significance.
Venue: Università di Torino | Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia (Palazzo Nuovo, Sala Lauree di Lettere e Filosofia), Via Sant’Ottavio 20, Turin
Speakers: Silvana Borutti, Gaetano Chiurazzi, Donatella Di Cesare, Adriano Fabris, Nicolaj Ivanov, Adalberto Mainardi, Francisco Martín, Alberto Martinengo, Caterina Resta, Chiara Sandrin, Evgenji Solonovič
Organizer: Gaetano Chiurazzi (Dipartimento di Filosofia e Scienze dell’Educazione)
THE PROGRAMME OF THE CONFERENCE IS AVAILABLE HERE.
