About the event

Eminent literary and critical theorist Homi K. Bhabha will discuss translation’s impact on the construction of social memory, historical narrative, and cultural identity. Through an examination of today’s globalized world, Dr. Bhabha will highlight translation’s ability to foster communication while also emphasizing disparity, simultaneously illuminating and distorting meaning. One of the foremost figures in postcolonial studies, Dr. Bhabha is the author of The Location of Culture and is the Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University. This lecture is the fourth installment of the “Critical Theory Today” lecture series and is the keynote talk of the “Translation Theory Today” conference.
