History, Culture, Memory: Forgetting Russian Women, Stereotyping Greek Lit, Forcing (Non-)German Identities, and Disappearing a Spanish Political Activist

Reinstating Forgotten 18th C. Russian Women, Bucking Western Stereotypes of Ancient Greek Literature, Saying No to Contemporary Hyphenated German Identities, and Re-Presenting Different Languages in the Archivo Hildegart. Four colleagues, all literary translators, have also planned and co-taught a course on the theory and practice of literary translation. They will present problems of trafficking their translations across the curriculum, across their own departments and fields, and across the historical and cultural canon, with examples from Enlightenment Russia, Ancient Greece, contemporary Germany, and Spain's 2nd Republic. Because they have worked together closely over several years they bring to this session an uncommon intensity and efficiency in their presentation.
