Contemporary Critical Theories: Translating Violence/Translating Justice

This team-taught seminar examines contemporary postcoloniality and the dilemmas of decolonization in light of questions of translation. To what extent do theories and practices of translation and untranslatability inform our understanding of a globalized ostcoloniality? In what ways must the thinking and doing of translation be revised in these conditions? The class will focus on themes such as multilingual and multiethnic states, borders and
checkpoints, ecological crisis, oil politics, primitive accumulation, debt, financialization, gendered violence and rape cultures, and figures of justice.
