What Was World Literature? Early Modern Theories of Translation and the German Language

A lecture by Bethany Wiggin on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 – Lecture at 4:30pm in 205 East Pyne

“What Was World Literature? Early Modern Theories of Translation and the German Language”

This lecture invites exploration of what we mean when we ask “What Is World Literature?” Returning to the suggestive definition offered by David Damrosch (world literature is “literature that gains in translation”), I probe different modes of translation into German, beginning with the late Goethe and moving backward in time. Drawing on examples from Opitz, Luther, Steinhoewel, et al, this lecture asks how we might conceive of world literature before global modernity and why today we might wish to do so.

Devin Fore speaking at Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study on February 18th

The next art history seminar at the Institute for Advanced Study will be held on February 18, 2016 at 6pm in the ground floor of the West Building. Fore’s talk, “Before Documentary: Ornament and Knowledge in Soviet Factography,” returns to a time before the consolidation of documentary as an aesthetic genre in the 1930s, focusing on the preceding moment when documentary was not yet a style but a method of scientific inquiry, even a mode of cognition. It examines three striking strategies of documentary inquiry in the film, photography and photomontage of the 1920s, asking of these experiments, What is the nature of documentary thought? All are welcome to attend.
