Research

We address diverse translation sites, agents, and practices.

By studying translators, editors, publishers, activists, collectives, NGOs, and individual writers, we discover global patterns of transmission and transformation.

About

‘Sisterhood is global’, claimed feminists of the sixties and seventies.

That women in the northern hemisphere tended to obscure differences among women globally as well as power relations within feminist groups has been duly critiqued since, most provocatively by women in post-colonial nations and by women of colour in Europe and North America. But second-wave feminist writing and campaigning was nonetheless globally connected.

Patterns of contact, transfer, and influence wrought unexpected connections and opportunities, even as they were sometimes tensely interwoven with the unstable power structures of postwar global politics.
