The Dynamics of Exchange: Translation and the Exportation of Culture (NEMLA 2013)

This roundtable session will consider literary texts as cultural commodities that can be exported through translation. How do various economic, political, and social forces affect how a literary text is translated and received? The discussion will be in dialogue with recent debates about world literature and translation theory. We will consider studies of translations into English or from English into other languages from any period. Abstracts of no more than 500 words to Antonio Ochoa
