Research statement

My research focuses on translation as a form of cultural production, a metaphor for cultural encounter and a means for understanding the world. I am interested in questioning how translation can be thematised along philosophical and political lines, enabling exchange and debate across rival positions and addressing problems that go beyond interlingual conceptualisations. I conceive of translation as a practice located at the nexus of cultures, ideas, history and politics, requiring multiple negotiations with and across difference. The subjective work these negotiations require offers a powerful lens through which to examine the creation and representation of knowledge. By exploring the territory between translation and a range of cognate frameworks drawn from literary and cultural theory, political philosophy and philosophical hermeneutics, my research is concerned with advancing approaches rooted in the understanding of issues of ethics, justice, identity development, community relations and political recognition at the heart of intercultural practice. I am interested, above all, in exploring how the scrutiny of translation as a creative practice can enable us to theorise alternative ways in which we might construct and enhance equitable exchange in multicultural society.

Monograph: What is Cultural Translation? (2017, Bloomsbury Academic)

The concept of ‘cultural translation’ is one of the most alluring yet elusive concepts in the contemporary humanities. Since its introduction in cultural anthropology, the concept has been deployed across the social disciplines to challenge binary views of cultural identity, to reinforce ideas of communication based on the principle of exchange between the peoples of the world and to theorize the ethical, political and cultural challenges posed by the increasingly interconnected nature of our communities. But despite its de rigueur status and promise of a new paradigm for understanding the problematics of cultural difference, the presence of cultural translation is often taken as a self-evident and accounts have tended towards the diffuse. By providing the first book-length study of cultural translation based on an in-depth engagement with both the dominant theoretical dialogues on the subject and their realization in a real-world context, the book advances the first critically grounded definition and is shaped as an extended critical response to the dizzying array of contributions on the subject from translation studies and beyond. I draw on diverse case studies from across the cultural domain, including works of theatre, film, television and literature, the built environment, current affairs, international relations and online media, to uncover processes of negotiation and adaptation most closely associated with the translation of texts behind the production and contestation of everyday cultural phenomena. I urge readers towards a view of translation in its broadest understanding, both as a means for understanding how we shape the cultural realms in which we live and as a touchstone for what we see, do and say in public life.

Thesis title and summary: Cultural Translation and the Anxieties of Otherness

Since the cultural ‘turn’ in Translation Studies, the concept of ‘cultural translation’ has received considerable attention. Conceptualised in a diverse range of ways, its popularity has given rise to a proliferation of conflicting accounts. Scholars have signalled the lack of in-depth analysis to provide a fuller understanding of cultural translation, its limits, assumptions and opportunities. My thesis responds to this need by providing a study of cultural translation in its diverse emanations and discerns four broad themes arising from its multiple configurations: as an ethnographic ‘encounter’ with cultural difference; as a mobile practice that displays a ‘migrant’ doubleness of identity as a form of textual production that refuses to belong securely in its place of reception; as a mode that constructs a hybridised text that, in its refusal to be placed firmly within one ‘side’ or the other, occupies a space ‘in-between’ original and reproduction; and, in recognition of the appropriative forms of interpretation upon which translation is predicated, as a resistant practice that seeks ways to rectify translation’s limited appraisal of cultural difference. The thesis tests these theoretical possibilities within the practical context of literary translation and argues for a view of cultural translation as an encounter between the cultural world of the foreign text and the subjective world of a translator, in which the relationship between translator and text is never dissociated from broader matters of power, representation and positionality.
