Translating cultures

Colección: Alternativas
Materia: Feminismo

“In every possible sense, translation is necessary but impossible”, we are warned in the opening line of Gayatri Spivak’s essay.
Conscious of this paradox, the forty-five contributors to this volume engage in cultural translations of various kinds, touching upon questions of representation, interpretation and the traversing of cultures.

Their texts deal with world literatures in English and issues of postcolonial theory, and range from ficto-criticism and biotext to literary analysis and theoretical essay. Together they offer a dialogical, stimulating perspective on textuality, history and responsibility in the contemporary world.
