Live-streamed via Microsoft Teams on 25 January 2021

In a joint event with OCCT Review, we will host one of the journal’s contributors, Eleonora Colli, who will discuss her review of Transgender, Translation, Translingual Address by Douglas Robinson. In his 2019 book, Transgender, Translation, Translingual Address, Robinson sets out on a quest “to understand the ‘translational’ or ‘translingual’ dialogues between cisgendered and transgendered people”. The book moves between queer, gender, and translation theory in order to create a practice of communication breaking away from binary restrictions of original and target languages. In this session we will explore issues and debates centred around gender and translation that Robinson’s book elicits. Colli’s review is available here: https://www.occt.ox.ac.uk/cct-review/transgender-translation-translingual-address-douglas-robinson.

Eleonora Colli is a DPhil student at the Faculty of Classics, Oxford.
