Silvia Casazza: Dialogues Among Cultures: Challenges of Literary Translation
Although people have dealt with it for centuries, translation has only recently acquired the status of a field of studies.
In the workshop, we intend to briefly introduce the history of this discipline and to discuss its main approaches to the texts with specific attention to the literary translation. Along with the established concepts like “equivalence”, “source-oriented” and “target-oriented”, we will explore the degrees of interpretation in the translation process and how the inherently hermeneutical nature of translating influences the perception of cultures.
