<nettime-ann> new issue of transversal web journal: translating violence


translating violence
transversal web journal

How can the silence of those be translated, who are not even conceded an articulated language? There is only one possibility: translating injustices and inequalities and thus voicing them instead of negating them. It is only in this way that otherness which has been silenced can regain language.
Far from being a purely textual phenomenon, in this issue of the web journal transversal coordinated by Rada Ivekovi
ć, translation is always already a contextual translation of life, experience and politics. The extent to which this calls for a politics of translation that questions both the original and the role of the translator, is explored in this issue on the basis of questions of biopolitical violence and heterolinguality, language politics in Gujarat, art politics in Taiwan, and concrete translation problems of feminist terminology.
