The Spaces of Translation in a Critical Theory of Society

6.30pm

Lectures

Public

Speaker: Dr Stefan Baumgarten, Bangor University

Venue: Room C309, Tait Building

Like any discipline in the arts and humanities, translation studies tends to echo paradigmatic change and global theoretical fashions. There exists, however, little to no reflection on the interrelation between cross-cultural communication and critical theory, nor has any attempt been made to construct a critical methodology that accounts for the fate of translation under capitalist social relations. This lecture will provide an overview of the intersections across translation research and critical social thinking, situating three pivotal spaces of translation – heterotopian, dystopian, and utopian – against the backdrop of capitalist globalization.

Dr Stefan Baumgarten is a lecturer in German and Translation Studies at the School of Modern Languages, Bangor University.
