  • National Workshop
    August 19 - 21, 2010
    Venue: Radhakrishnan Hall,
    Vidyasagar University

    Suggested Topic: Approaches to and Strategies of Translating Dalit Literature
    Themes and Issues:
    • The role of translation in the empowerment of Dalit writing: in what ways do Indian Dalit writers
    negotiate between languages and cultures?
    • How can one write a national Dalit literature in a regional language? How is this aspiration given
    expression through narrative techniques, linguistic experiments and thematic choices?

    • Gender and translation: how does the concept of gender change when translating “regional” language Dalit

    narratives into English?

    • The role of English-language publishing in promoting translation of Dalit narratives from Indian
    languages; but does it perhaps limit translations between Indian languages?
