We are delighted to share the news that Prismatic Translation, edited by St Anne’s Fellow, Professor Matthew Reynolds, has been longlisted for the ESCL Excellence Award for Collaborative Research competition.
Work on the book was supported by the AHRC-funded Creative Multilingualism programme and OCCT. The book explores prismatic modes of translation in ancient Egypt, contemporary Taiwan, twentieth-century Hungary, early modern India, and elsewhere. It gives attention to experimental literary writing, to the politics of language, to the practices of scholarship, and to the multiplying possibilities created by digital media. It charts the recent growth of prismatic modes in anglophone literary translation and translational literature; and it offers a new theorisation of the phenomenon and its agonistic relation to the ‘channel’ view.
Professor Reynolds, along with the other three shortlisted candidates, will present his work on Zoom on September 17, 5:00 PM BST—18:00 CEST—19:00 EEST. We will share more details about this event closer to the time.
