The virtual Graduate Translation Conference at the University of Massachusetts- Amherst on the 'Ethics of Translation and Interpretation' will be held virtually via Zoom from Friday, April 2, to Saturday, April 3. The conference will focus on themes related to translation such as atrocity, war, identity, erasure, omission, hybrid languages, multilingual and cross-cultural texts, linguistics, machine translation, thinking, feeling, interpreting, ethical theory, translation in educational settings, and ideology.
The keynote speaker for this conference is the Pulitzer-Prize nominee Prof. Erik Camayd-Freixas who will deliver the address titled, 'The Interpreter as Critic.'
My research during the panel listed above will focus on Ann Goldstein's translation of 'subalternità' as 'subordination' in the Neapolitan Novels. I shall be exploring the multitudes that such a translation exposes, mediates and perturbs, particularly with regards to the narrative relationship of Lila and Lenù as a dialectical female friendship shaped and rooted in the dialect and geo-political, cautiously 'subaltern' space of working class Naples.
