Radical Translations

Through case-studies of individual translators or groups of texts, this project addresses the additional research questions:

  • How does a lexical field associated with certain keywords change across languages or genres and media?
  • What were the strategies used by translators to extend or keep alive the revolutionary project even in times of defeat?
  • How can translation help us understand why some political ideas become assimilated while others are perceived as foreign, untranslatable or misplaced?

To find out more about potential case-studies see the Lives in Translation Series on our blog.
