Literary Translation

Presiding Officer: 
Julie Winter, Western Washington University

Translated literature is the product of two creative acts: an author’s original work embedded in his or her own linguistic and cultural milieu, and a translator’s rendering of that work into the idiom of another cultural and linguistic tradition. Translation is thus an exceedingly complex process in which there are nearly infinite possibilities, and no “correct” way to proceed. Papers that explore this process in order to shed light on the art and skill of the act of translating literature are welcome, as well as critical interpretations of translated texts.
