4. MOV. MOVING BODIES: ITINERARIES AND NARRATIVES IN TRANSLATION

P.I.: Marta Pacheco Pinto


 

Synopsis:

In a contemporary time when linguistic and national identities are no longer confined to one nation state but may extrapolate to diasporas or permeate languages and cultures of migrating communities, issues of translation become decisive. The study of translation, either translation proper or as metaphor to (re)examine the multiplicity of cultural practices, allows us to consider the contact and negotiation between cultural and linguistic (polys)systems and the impact of translation across media (Even-Zohar, Pratt, Asad, Bhabha, Apter, Duarte). It raises questions about linguistic power, strategies and tendencies to disseminate particular texts, and how alterity, forms of inclusion, subversion or legitimisation are articulated in the target system.  This research project takes advantage of a comparative-informed approach to intercultural contact to advance a wider understanding of the translational phenomenon. It examines through a culturalist lens different kinds of narratives, both written and visual, as produced by moving bodies, i.e. mediators between and across times, spaces and genres. Special focus will be given to the narratives produced in the period corresponding to colonial and post-colonial Portugal (19th and 20th centuries).
