Radical Translations

Through case-studies of individual translators or groups of texts, this project addresses additional research questions, including: 1) How does a lexical field associated with certain keywords change across languages or genres and media? 2) What were the strategies used by translators to extend or keep alive the revolutionary project even in times of defeat? 3) How can translation help us understand why some political ideas become assimilated while others are perceived as foreign, untranslatable or misplaced?
