Unlike the translator of someone else’s work, a self-translator does not translate: she “thinks” in both languages. Self-translation, then, may not be translation at all, but be merely the process of creating “the same” literary work in a different language. This roundtable invites writers, translators and scholars to examine examples of Self-Translation from high literature, popular culture, or ideally their own attempts, and discuss to what degree the “Self” is bound by the language(s) which it uses to express itself.
The Yiddish Book Center is now accepting applications for the 2018 Translation Fellowship Program.
