    Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    With Health Humanities programs on the rise and medical memoirs flooding our bookshelves, it is easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. From the 19th century onwards, writers from a multitude of traditions have squared off against doctors for the right to diagnostic prominence, particularly in capturing the "essence" of disease and the dis-eased body/mind. Their motivations, meanwhile, have spanned from the starkly...

    Literary Translation as Scholarship: A Workshop (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This seminar poses literary translation as an integral part of our work as comparatists. Recognizing the dearth of opportunities to discuss translation practice, this ACLA seminar will take a workshop format to allow participants to address specific translation-related questions that they have been facing in their own work. Rather than a formal presentation, each participant will receive focused feedback on their translation. We will interrogate how translation informs our critical practice as...

    Making Sense of Digitality (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Erich Hörl defines the technological condition as a site where we make sense of the world today. Sensing—ways of seeing and being, and that which ultimately contextualizes the ontic framework within a digital topography, reveals the technological condition as a kind of dislocated “groundlessness [...] that exposes the originary technicity of sense, that constantly merges human and non-human actors, that operates before the difference between subject and object, that is endlessly prosthetic...

    Seduced Heroes, Seduced Readers (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Leo Tolstoy might have captured some metafictional truth about the profession of literature when he remarked at the beginning of Anna Karenina , “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The novel that follows is a monumental, but highly sensual, enterprise to trace meticulously the tragedy of three aristocratic families at the end of the Russian Empire. Like Tolstoy we sense that literature and art have an undeniable affinity to the troublesome...

    Translation as Material Practice: Case Studies in Production, Circulation, and Reception (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Lawrence Venuti’s work has long been concerned with ending instrumentalism : a model of translation which essentializes form, meaning, or effects as unchanging qualities contained in source texts that can be lost in translation. His latest, Contra Instrumentalism: A Translation Polemic , crystallizes the “hermeneutic model” with which he proposes to replace this “instrumentalist” one, arguing we conceive of “translation as an interpretive act that inevitably varies source-text form,...
