Researching Collaborative Translation in the Context of Contemporary Protest

Lecture by Mona Baker Hong Kong Baptist University, 7-8 April 2016 The Individual and/vs the Collective: Researching Collaborative Translation in the Context of Contemporary Protest While interest in collaborative forms of translation has grown noticeably in recent years, little has been done to examine the tension between the individual and the collective in different types of collaborative environment. Specifically, no research has yet examined collaboration in the highly fluid and unstructured context of contemporary social and political movements.
The Translation and Contestation of Political and Scientific Concepts across Time and Space: A Corpus-Based Study

The Translation and Contestation of Political and Scientific Concepts across Time and Space: A Corpus-Based Study

Seminar by Mona Baker Hong Kong Baptist University, 18 Feb. 2016 This seminar will report on a large, interdisciplinary research project based at the University of Manchester in the UK and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project involves compiling large electronic corpora of ancient Greek, medieval Arabic, early Latin and Modern English to examine how central concepts in the humanities and sciences have been (re)translated into these three lingua francas, and how they have been interpreted and reinterpreted as they entered new cultural and temporal spaces.

Translation, Representation, and Narrative Performance

Seminar by Mona Baker Hong Kong Baptist University, 29 May 2014 Translation is one of the core practices through which any cultural group constructs representations of another and contests representations of the self. Part of its power stems from the fact that as a genre, it tends to be understood as "merely" reporting on something that is already available in another social space, that something being an independent source text that pre-exists the translation.
